YouTuber of the week!
A day late this week, my apologies I simply forgot whilst being busy with other non-minecraftian things!

This weeks YouTuber of the week is going to be a little different. I have mentioned in the past few threads that we are starting to look for a select few YouTubers who will be selected to keep the [YT] Tag indefinitely, players who REGULARLY post high-quality entertaining videos. (Of course, should the player stop uploading videos the tags will be removed)

Its always difficult selecting these, even more so when picking those who will keep the tags for an extended time however based on player-feedback there are two clear YouTubers who have always produced fantastic content for the server.

The first is Danishman222 and his regular series is always of fantastic quality, a great commentator who never fails to have something entertaining to talk about as he progresses forward with his room and base designs. He has also been a great help to Juck97 with some great videos uploaded to Gontrollers own YouTube channel. Its clear he's a fantastic and very deserving player.

The second is Dat_fatass a cake-obsessed fool whose videos never fail to be entertaining and a little odd, you never quite know what to expect with the next episode! (Although you can usually assume that a little chaos and screaming will be found somewhere)​

Both will be given the YouTuber tags in-game whilst will remain,...​

YouTuber of the week!

Sadly this week I've been horribly busy, not had as much time to watch submitted videos as I would have liked, however Kayora came to the rescue offering to take a look for me and give me his feedback on the submissions.​
For this week he picked K1LL3R_M3N and his recent pvp epic, much longer than most usual pvp videos, so its great for those of you who enjoy watching these fights. For myself, whilst I enjoyed many of the fights I did find the video a little long for my personal taste (remember, I'm not a pvp fan!) but Bloom seemed to really enjoy that aspect of it. This is only his second posted pvp video (and his first one on Gontroller!) so a fantastic start.​
A few other notable mentions: Ender returns to Gontroller with a great pvp video, cant wait to see what else he'll be bringing. And Lanarc246 with the 246Team base tour of 6.0 a great display of their achievements in map 6!​
And of course, a special mention to NoglasticNinja who updated the Gontroller trailer to include the new spawn and 7.0 changes! As a thanks Bestle has rewarded him with the [MVP] tag permanently in-game, only the third player to have gained this tag. You can find the updated trailer HERE on the Gontroller YouTube channel. If you have any videos you would like to see on the Gontroller YouTube channel, head HERE.​
We have yet to award any players with the...​

YouTuber of the week!

For the past few weeks I had put making these threads on hold, both due to reduced numbers of uploads from players due to the end of map/reset and a realisation of some extreme flaws with the concept as a whole.​
A few things we had been noticing and was ultimately highlighted by Kachow19 is that with less players uploading regular content the same core group of video makers were starting to win every time and it had become less of a "YouTuber of the week" and more a "which of these did I not pick recently" Which simply becomes unfair to players as a whole.​
In reflection of this we will be looking to make a few core changes to the concept.​
1 - YouTuber of the week will no longer be only a stand out video of a nice quality, but will also look to promote new video makers, promote and encourage them to continue with series' rather than giving up.​
2 - Promoting videos on the forums is one thing, but players that produce videos are promoting Gontroller, so its only fair we look to do what we can to promote those players. We shall be looking for some alternative methods to help players promote their videos and channels (and streams!) in-game much easier. Of course this would need to be done in a way that prevents them from being intrusive of others. We have a few ideas that you may see appearing soon!​
3 -Based on your player feedback those that REGULARLY upload HIGH QUALITY content, such as lets play series' or pvp videos will keep the [YT] Tag indefinitely, as long as they continue to upload these videos (A notable lack in video uploads will result in its removal). I'm sure there are a few people you can all think of already, let me...
Just wanted to pop in and say that preparation for the map reset is going well and we are still on schedule to launch this Friday the 19th of December.

We are aiming to launch the new map at 11pm GMT (convert this to your local time using something such as http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc or just go here for a countdown: http://itsalmo.st/#gontrollerreset)

I may as well take this as an opportunity to tell you more about one of the new features of map 7, Hero armour.

There are four pieces (helm, chest, legs and boots) that make up a complete set of Hero armour. Each piece of the set is obtained by a different method and wearing the armour gives you boosts in both your damage output and your maximum health.

We intend for this armour to be extremely rare and expensive. Something for those high level players and economy enthusiasts to seek out.

The Hero Helmet provides the wearer with a maximum health boost whilst worn and can be obtained simply by gaining McMMO xp in any skill (except training in MA). The more xp you gain throughout your playtime, the higher your chances of obtaining a Hero helmet. If you have maxed a skill out, the xp you would be gaining is still counted, so don't worry :)

(+10 Max Health = 5 hearts)

The Hero Chestplate is the second Hero item that provides you with a boost to your maximum health. This item can be obtained as a rare drop when picking up lava source blocks with buckets in the main world. You can either choose to seek out natural sources of lava in the world, or grind your way there by buying buckets from the shop.

The Hero Leggings are more suited to the offensive player wishing to dealer the maximum amount of damage, and quickly. These leggings provide you with a small damage boost similar to how a strength potion in vanilla works. To obtain these leggings...

INTRODUCTION

Wow, here we are again already! Our last reset was all the way back in the middle of July and our current map has now well and truly passed its prime. Our last map reset was extremely rushed due to our hand being forced by data corruption, however we feel that overall the map went extremely well. It has been clear however that major changes need to be made for our new map.

THE NEW MAP

As we were extremely time-limited preparing map 6 we had to stick with vanilla map generation - Not this time!

We have once again commissioned a lovely fully custom map built to our specifications. However, we didn't want to go too crazy with the custom biomes as we know some of you don't like them at all. Our new map contains a good distribution of areas with vanilla biomes and areas with some rather cool custom ones.

Our last custom maps were interesting to say the least, featuring fan favorites such as biomes without bedrock, sand all the way from ground level to bedrock and ore biomes. We (well, Carl) has spent a lot of time scouring our new map and we hope we have located and removed any and all problems with our latest map.

The map size will remain the same as map 6 at 20,000 x 20,000 blocks.

ALL NEW MOB ARENAS

Some time ago now we hosted a competition to create some new Mob Arena's for the server and given how long it has taken us to pick winners, it made the most sense to leave them for the new map.

A preview of each new Mob Arena and the name of their creator can be found below.

Kachow19 "Cave" Very natural Minecraft feel, great for small teams or solo players looking to focus on McMMO

In about 1 weeks time all mcMMO claimlevels will be reset when I update the plugin to use UUID's.

There are 10's of thousands of players with pending levels, some of which haven't played for around a year or so, so this is also an opportunity to purge our data.

If you have pending levels I would encourage you to claim them as soon as possible.
Just a quick announcement to let you all know that we have a 25% off sale because it's Black Friday, and judging by my email spam, apparently that's what everyone does these days. This will last from now until the end of Sunday.

Good luck getting all the bargains, and try not to get trampled or ran over by somebody on a rascal.

YouTuber of the week!
This week we've had a great mix of videos from continuing series (Dat_fatass) to new series' starting (Cephy) even a pretty nicely made (Even if a little cheaty!) Maze walkthough.​
iSyed most notably known for his use of strange internet terms that I simply have no idea or understanding of (Something group called Phase?) and videos that are simply so strange that watching them makes me question if I'm dreaming, however this week he uploaded a very nice Cinematic showing off the best of Hoarders faction base from this map.​
Its great to see someone taking a simple base tour to the next level and spending a lot of time to make the video both visually appealing whilst showing off the base at its best. (Even if it does appear to only have one wall!) although I did feel that the video was lacking the voice of Don LaFontaine and needed more motion tracking, it was a fantastic way to show off the faction base and I hope to see more factions showing off what they've completed during their time on Gontroller 6.0!​


Syed is also looking for clip submissions for a 6.0 video montage! Please take a look here:
www.gontroller.com/community/threads/6-0-community-montage-need-clips.44468

Edit: YouTuber of the week will be on hold for now for a few reasons, if you see any special outstanding video be sure to tag me in it and let me know.
Apologies for this being slightly late, but the results are finally in!
