Hi PVPers,

We would like to inform you that our Map 16 EOTW on Hardcore Factions will be taking place on Friday 13th January at 8pm GMT (3pm EST) We hope you enjoy it!

Thanks,
iPvP Administration.
Hi PVPers,

We will be releasing our 17th map this week on Saturday January 14 at 2PM EST (7PM GMT). This map will be less feature packed and will focus on re-implementing some older parts of IPVP that were changed over the past few maps. This map also reintroduces allies, which haven't been enabled on IPVP for a helluva long time. We hope you enjoy it!
Here are the details for the next map:

Map Information
Map Kit: Protection 1 / Sharpness 1 / Power 3 / Fire Aspect 1
Faction Limits:
8 Members 1 Ally
Invisibility: 8 Minutes Brewable

New Features/Changes
  • Reverted EXP nerfs to what they were around map 7-9
    • This means that you'll receive a lot more experience from monsters as well as the looting enchantment
  • (Possibly) Revert terrain generation to old map generator
  • DTR freeze time will vary depending on your faction size
    • This means that solos will have a shorter DTR freeze vs. full factions
  • Starting balance increased to $200
We are currently working on revamping the overall look and feel of the website (our ghetto XenForo theme feels pretty outdated) as well as store, this will be introduced in the upcoming months.

The next few steps and updates for IPVP will be less focused on pushing features (unless something excellent is suggested) and will primarily feature any bug fixes and improvements to general gameplay (we will be tweaking knockback, hit detection, etc a lot). Player customizability will also be a huge priority of mine (ie. allowing players to modify certain plugin colors for themselves); this was previewed with what can currently be done with the tab colors (by typing /tab to change them).

Alongside this, we are weighing any options for new ideas and game modes to expand the server and have a more stable player base. Currently we've been witnessing a massive spike in traffic during the EOTW/SOTW...

This map features many bug fixes and a few changes that were previewed in our test map, 15.5. Here is our awesome trailer for the map created by Zuha:

IPVP (http://ipvp.org) is searching for builders (teams accepted) to help speed up map creation in order to create a surplus of builds for future maps and any other potential future project/server expansions.


Hours and Pay
There are no set hours, however we typically ask for and expect map sets to be completed within a timeframe of 2 weeks. Payment varies with employment time and build experience/quality; new builders are offered $150 per map set and can negotiate for higher payment as time progresses.

Included in a full build set are:

  • Spawn (99x99)
  • End Entrance Portals (~7x7)
  • Stackable Road Design
  • Nether Spawn (51x51)
  • 4 KOTH (81x81)
  • Conquest (121x121)
  • Themed End World (~250-250)
    • An end world is generated and you simply decorate it
A specific theme for builds is not typically provided, we trust builders opinions and will usually accept builds given that they look good.

Quality Standards
Builds we have used in the past can be viewed by clicking here. Use these as a reference...

Hi all,

Map 15.5 SOTW will be releasing this upcoming Saturday (November 26) at 2PM EST. Click the previous date to view a live countdown telling you when SOTW will begin. As per tradition, the server MOTD will be updated sometime later in the week with a refreshable countdown of when the event will take place. This map will be a throwback map to builds from an earlier IPVP, we hope you enjoy the nostalgia with KOTHs such as Cove (Map 5), Conquest (Map 7), Cave (Map 7), and more. We will also be using this interim map as a chance to test the performance/bugs of some new features and internal changes for our anticipated Map 16 launch which will take place around Christmas time.

Here are the details for the next map:

Map Information
Map Kit: Protection 1 / Sharpness 1 / Power 3
Faction Limits: 10 Members 0 Allies
Invisibility: 8 minute enabled

A full feature list will be released for the Map 16 post.

Thanks,

Hi all,

Two factor authentication (2FA) has now been enabled on the hubs for everybody to use. This feature gives added security to your accounts in-case they are compromised by another party. Our current implementation uses the Google Authenticator APP which is available on the Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store. To enable the feature, enter the lobby server (via relogging or /server lobby) and type /auth. You will be presented with instructions on how to activate 2FA.

Current options for the plugin are as follows:
  • /auth - Starts the authentication process
  • /auth off - Disables 2FA
  • /auth ipenable - Enables IP based authentication, you will only be asked for your code when your IP changes
  • /auth ipdisable - Disables IP based authentication

Here is what happens when you type /auth in our lobbies:
[​IMG]
You'll be given instructions on how to stop the process, as well as installing the Google Authenticator app

[​IMG]
Once the app is installed, you will be given a QR code to scan

[​IMG]
The QR code is in the form of a map, open the app and scan it to create a new entry in your app

[​IMG]
Once you have the scanned entry, you can proceed and enter your code

[​IMG]
At this point your authentication is already enabled, and you can choose to enable IP-based authentication

Thanks,
iPvP Administration
