Oh boy, you're not ready for this one. Hot chocolate and some chocolate chip cookies are most definitely in order.
If you choose to ignore this, you have been warned!
The Christmas season is now officially over, so it's time to focus on what's next. I promised in my What 2020 holds for CYT post that we have tons of things planned for you all, and I do not plan to let you down. Let's start 2020 off right.
We have updated to 1.15.2 for all servers; if you cannot connect this is most likely why!
Removed Xmas Event
Removed the huge message in chat when you connect
It was obnoxious and we all hated it, don't lie.
Removed the extra space at the start of usernames that didn't have a tag...
Well, it's nearing the end of a decade, it's time to start thinking about the future.
**Queue the uplifting music**
But first, let's remember some important factors.
Well, here at CraftYourTown, we've been making content for you to enjoy for nearly 3 years. And to think this all started from me being slightly bored, that's impressive.
I'd just like to start by thanking each and every one of you for sticking by us through the rough patches and tough times we've had, undoubtedly theres been alot of them, from failed gamemodes (cough legacy) to the server losing players and what not, it's been tough. But, well, from my eyes atleast, we've always pulled through, and that's because of the community that we're so lucky to have. You might piss me off sometimes, but deep down I love you all. That's a true family.
We've had our good and bad times, but let's focus on the good for a minute.
Back in April of 2017, when CraftYourTown was first released, the server grew faster than any other...
Starting from today, the CYT 2019 Xmas Event!
Accept Santa's and other NPCs quests for unique rewards and prizes!
You won't be able to do all the quests at once, you're required to have a certain amount of quest points for certain ones! /quests stats to see your current amount!
As a CYT tradition that we've done since we opened, this years Christmas Calendar begins December 1st.
Don't miss a day because there are unique tags involved! Collect it at the spawn Christmas Tree
Christmas Present Hunt
Around the spawn, the tutorial area, parkour, christmas event area and envoy area are scattered Christmas Presents.
Everyone can claim each one once, happy hunting!
Once you claim them all, you'll be awarded with a unique [Ho-ho-ho!] Tag.
There are now three new Augments available - check them out using /fish augments.
Mazes have been regenerated!
We've reintroduced CombatLog to the Envoy area, stopping players from just running away when in combat.
All current AH items have been forceably expired, meaning you can collect them from the /ah menu (the Rotten Potato icon when you click on the Beacon menu)
We will give players 3 days to collect all expired items from AH before we change how items are stored and the AH will be wiped!
Any items posted on the AH within the next 3 days will most likely be cleared if not bought by players prior to the wipe. We are unable to disable...
Change to Rule G10:
Punishment violations will only be given if a 0-tick farm is made after this announcement has been posted. Any 0-tick farms made prior to the rule change will be simply removed.
Most fly machines, large Redstone contraptions, clocks or lag machines are not allowed. ADDED:0-tick farms are not allowed.
If you have concerns ask staff to check it out as if it is not massive, cause lag or with fly machines not go on forever then it should be ok.
(Note: Any blocks and any items lost during WorldEdit removal will not be refunded due to rule violation)

Rule T5 changed from 2 hours to 12 hours when asking a person to leave your town area:
If you’re in a town, or within a 200-block radius of one, and a town member ask you to leave, do so immediately and if you are on a players personal plot and they ask you to leave, do so immediately. This means to teleport to spawn, your town spawn or away from the town, not stay around the general area. If a player does not leave and/or still appears on the town members [/near] list (within a 200-block radius), then this will be in violation of the request and punishments will be given.
If this request is stated, you must stay away from the area for at least [COLOR=rgb(184...
Rule Changes (& SF Rule Enforcement)
A few rule changes:
Placed SlimeFun blocks that revert to their default block (mainly blocks from SlimeXPansion) will now not be replaced. -- We made this change to avoid false reports of glitched items
Any CS-CoreLib Heads that are obtained due to Cargo Nodes or Capacitors reverting will be replaced to the lowest tier (Small Energy Capacitor/Input and Output Nodes) -- This is done because there is no way for us to differenciate the blank item handed to other tiers.
G2 - Hacking and Unfair Advantages
1st Offence = (30-day ban) [was 1 week]
2nd Offence = (90-day ban + Job level reset and balance halved) [was 30...

Let's get started, so if you haven't noticed (god knows how), the server becomes insanely laggy when player counts start to go into the 25+ range. Now, this is not caused by the player count its-self, but what the players are all doing at the same time.
I want to make this very clear, our plugins are not the cause of the lag, and that's proven by our timings (these are not public). We've tried and tried again with trying to come up with solutions, including help from PaperMC and SpigotMC, the server currently is as smooth as we can get it and that's confirmed. The issue with 1.13+ is that mojang changed how chunks work, load and generate, and they did not correctly change their default server software to compensate and optimise this. Other servers may not lag for a few reasons:
- They have less than 20 players average - Chunks still may load and unload, but not to the extent that our server is dealing with
- They are all in a designated area, or the world is not...
