EXPLOSIONS ARE BACK
After a roughly year long hiatus from the server, I am happy to announce that explosions will once again cause block damage, but structures and the natural landscape will still be preserved! So here's how it works, TNT or any other type of explosive may be used to raid a base -- its most popular use -- and the physics of the explosions will be pretty normal. However, after a set amount of time (60 minutes?), all blocks destroyed by the explosion(s) will be regenerated (excluding any item holders such as chests, furnaces, as well as precious blocks). This means that if your house gets obliterated and you decide to rage quit, your house will probably be back when you log back on! Hooray for compromises!
This change will be implemented on the evening of Friday, March 7, 2014.
