Today I thought I should talk to you all about the vanilla servers that will be apart of the Hyperion Network.
Some people wonder why we even decided to introduce vanilla servers and in this post I'll be explaining why and what the future holds for vanilla servers.
Why did we add vanilla servers? I decided to add vanilla servers to expand Hyperion, I've never seen Hyperion as just a modded community, I've always seen it as a Minecraft community that accepts other server types. Vanilla servers have been a thing of mine that I use to run all the time. I believe that adding vanilla servers can help bring in more players. Modded still bring in players but I don't just want to limit all new and current players to modded, this is why I introduced vanilla servers.
So now you've heard why we wanted to add them but now you might want to know what we plan on doing with them and what vanilla servers Hyperion will be running. So here's a list of current vanilla servers we plan on having and a small description of what these servers are about.
Anarchy: Anarchy will be a PVP server with no special ranks or packs etc from the points store. The only things you can buy from the store are the following. (NOTE: All perks apply to everyone that is online.) PVP Buff, Health Boost, PVP Shield and other small cosmetic items that will only impact the user who buys them. Anarchy won't have any towny or factions or anything like that. Anarchy will be a no rles type of server, except for the general chat rules and no hacking rules.
Anything purchased on Anarchy won't be refunded if you lose them in PVP. This is a fair game server where everyone is on the same playing field even the staff members.
Factions 2.0: Factions 2.0 is pretty obvious as to what it is, it's a PVP server that uses Factions as protection and mcMMO to make the game more fun. Raiding is allowed and any items purchased via the store won't be refunded if lost to PVP. Factions will also have cool random events and crates for players to experience just by playing the game.
Custom: The custom server will be a custom made server by Hyperion that contains PVP. All items purchased from the store for this server will be applied to all online players. The custom server is a way for players to earn and spend Hyperion Points. It's a fun team PVP based game where the players can submit maps and ideas for the server.
Secret Server: This server is one I started back in 2014 but I put it off due to other Hyperion servers taking over, I've almost finished this project but I'm now deleting it all and starting fresh since we've updated to 1.8.7 from 1.7.10. So lots of changes will need to be made and I'll have to rewrite some of the custom code for it all to make the server function. This server is a PVP based server that uses magic, all the spells are made by me or by an unknown source. There won't be any towny or factions for protection only magic for base protection which has a timer and can vanish over time.
Minigames?: Not sure on this one, but essentially it would be a minigames server that contains lots of different minigames even some custom ones by the community and staff. This isn't 100% confirmed so don't get your hopes up. It might not even happen.
OP Prison 2.0(Maybe): The OP Prison server might be making a return and this time it'll actually be setup properly, meaning I'll be using all different plugins for the server and making it better for people and not as easy as it was to rankup.
OP Prison will be the 4th vanilla server which means Hyperion is starting to get crowded so with that being said... Let's move on to the next server.
Hub: The Hyperion vanilla hub server will be a place for everyone who plays on the vanilla servers to connect to and they'll be able to join any of the vanilla servers from the hub server. This means if you're playing Factions than you can go back to the hub and go to OP Prison or Anarchy etc without having to disconnect.
So that's a list of all of our vanilla servers and why we introduced them. These servers won't be released all at once to the public but they'll all be apart of Hyperion by the end of the year. You never know, I might develop new vanilla servers along the way. Such as this one called.... Hardcore De........ You'll have to find out what that one is near the end of the year or whenever I release more information about it.
Thanks for reading this far!
