    Hey guys,

    This update notice will be the first of two notices this month, please do read and keep yourself updated on the changes that has been made to Xeal Gaming Network.

    Jobs Re-Introduction
    As you may have heard from the previous announcement, we are re-introducing jobs back into the Main Server in a few days time. As a change, players will now be able to hold only one job. We will re-introduce the jobs one by one with revised profits, starting from Terraformer!

    Weekly Player Meetings
    We will be having player meetings on our TeamSpeak server to give players an opportunity to have a nice conversation with the staff members once every two weeks, on Wednesdays.
    Please refer to our meeting schedules for more information

    Global Chat Feedback
    We have added global chat to the network, allowing all players to talk across servers, please tell us how you like/dislike it by giving us comments on it below!
    (Provides a community-bonding and manageability, at the expense of spam and /f c)

    Reworking Donations
    In order to achieve compliance with the EULA set by Mojang on donations, we will cease receiving donations for the time being while we work on coming up with new donation packages that do not have an unfair advantage over non-donating players.
    (You may still donate now, and receive the donation packages only after we're done)

    New Spawn for Main
    We will be migrating to a new spawn built by @reapjaw
    You may warp to the new spawn by doing /go newspawn while in-game.

    That's all for now, look out for our next announcement this month!

    Thank you.

      Hey Warg,

      For the Global chat, i feel that its quite messy because players in main tend to chat alot while some players in games also talk quite alot (Esp. SG).

      Therefore i dislike the new global chat. ;)

      Probably make it so player can choose if he wants to chat with what server using command like /talkmain to talk with ppl in /main server or smth.

      You can use /ff (msg) for now until a fix (is it considered a bug you can't use /f c f?) is introduced

      I find that there is global chat for some reason (Advantages) :
      1. Convenient for us to keep track of players doings in other server.
      2. Players won't be able to misuse & abuse /shout command.
      3. Players can just call for help by typing in the global chat in other server.
      (Disadvantages) :
      1. Too much messages been displayed unnecessary from the plots server.
      2. It might cause even more lag for some players +
      3. Players might find it hard to read their friends PM in-game as the chat is on-going too fast @KINGSTON

      This is the analysis might players agreed with me :)


      Cheers

      Global chat: working properly, does its job well. Some suggestions from me:
      - a toggle command to display only chat in current server/display global chat
      - a toggle command for faction/ally chat.

      Pro and Cons of Global Chat
      Pro's
      1) Making staff much easier to catch toxic players
      2) No more unnecessary /shout with the removal of /shout command
      3) We can saw other player's help request more easily
      Con's
      1) The chat got flooded very fast, especially when server got 50+ players
      2) Inability to use /f c f is very inconvenient
      3) Without colored staff message, some player might find it hard to see staff message especially in condition where chat message got covered up very fast.
      4) Even though much easier to handle toxicity, but when someone being toxic, everyone can saw it. Unlike previously, only ppl from game can saw it.

      Many of us don't like the global chat including me.
      1. It gets easily messy
      2. Its hard to communicate since every second there will/might be many messages at one time
      3. The staff's and donator's color chats are removed so its hard to know if its a staff or not
      4. There's no more faction privacy and server privacy
      5. When you do /shout without any messages makes you to disconnect the server.

      Love the new update, nice work staff.

      Espically the new spawn, OMG its so naise
      Secondly i hope to see the reintroduction of jobs such as miner or farmer as these are the main jobs players usually choose as their jobs
      Lastly good to see that the staff are having player/staff conversation to improve the server. Just like IRL where AGM takes place to improve the current situation.

      Anyway nice work guys and keep it up :)

      1. No one asked for global server chat
      2. No more nicks and colored text
      3. VERY spammy
      4. Server was fine before the chat changed and it feels unecessary

      Thank god Reap's spawn!

      Make so player can decide if want to check global chat or not.
      Like if player want to chat within the server player can disable global chat. Also staff's texted color should be added back.

      (P.s can make so that HRanks can choose default color when they are chatting so they don't nid to type like &1&l and stuff)
