Hello everyone, As I am currently preparing to launch some Bug fixes on SimpleHG, I just wanted to inform you about these changes - so that we might be able to find even better solutions for you all. For now, I have been focusing on the major 3 bugs I was told about. Alright - it's time for a quick overview. Gladiator As you probably have noticed in the past few weeks there is/was a bug which made people able to get others autobanned for no reason by abusing gladiator in combination with vehicles. To fix that, I implemented that you cannot use the gladiator kit to challenge anyone currently riding a vehicle. Otherwise you'll trigger the Anticheat and get autobanned - as long as we do not switch to another one there won't be any other solution. Endermage (Ab)using Endermage never did result in a cooldown until now - in order to prevent endermage abuse I thought of receiving cooldown after using the endermage portal 3 times (using does mean here the successful teleport) in 5 seconds. For now the cooldown will last 4 seconds. Thor Blowing up netherrack boosted players in the air which caused the autoban for the effected players. That shouldn't happen anymore - if so please notify me. Alright thats it for now - the Update will probably be launched tomorrow globally. I'll publish it on the A1-A6 Servers now and keep those servers updated, so you'll always be in touch with the latest fixes. Feel free to share your opinion and have a nice day, fleance (you'll find me in the teamspeak, can message me on discord (fleance#1008) or just text me here - I'll C what I can do) btw. sorry 4 my bad english - I hope I did not too bad : -D
Hey! You all might have recognized our problems with e.g the AntiCheat or cheaters in general. Not enough (active) staff, false positives detected by the anticheat result in autobans and so on. Upcoming changes and updates will hopefully end these problems. Not all changes are made final so far and we've got a lot of work to do, but I'll introduce you into the most of them: Not enough active staff online on SimpleGalaxy: Well, the resolution of this problem shouldn't be too hard. In the next days I will release a new application form for you and re-read all posted applications here in the forum. The result shall be a whole bunch of new trial-moderators to complete the rest of our active staff. There will be an extra post for that - I'll keep you updated. Finally - a report system: SimpleGalaxy never had a report-system which had the result that hackers were able to play a full round of e.g. HG without being banned. I developed a Report-System which will be released as soon as there is enough staff online to ban these hackers. Otherwise you might complain (with reason) about hackers not being banned even if reported. We'll see when the time is right to release it, but we'll hurry as this seems to be quite necessary. Last but not least - a Anticheat update: I won't get too deep in detail but also the anticheat will be updated in the next couple of days. The current one is old and outdated and so shall be updated. This should also fix the autoban-issue caused by high latency. Soooooooooooooooooooooooo as you can see there's a lot of work to do but nothing is impossible to do. As I won't be able to complete my work before the weekend, network-maintenance should be next week somewhat between monday and thursday. I'll keep you updated - that's it for now. I'm open for discussion so let me know what you think. Thanks for reading, Happy playing and have a nice day, fleance
