It has been far too long since we last talked! As you may or may not know, I had resigned from my position on the server a few months ago due to my limited time. Now that my exams are over, I am pleasured to say that I have returned as a Developer to the server.
I always had a vision for the server, and that was for it to be unique and exceptional but I was too occupied by life and my previous rank, owner. But now however, that all changed, I will have more time to spend developing and taking care of the back-end of the server. It will also serve as an excellent stage for me to test and improve my skills.
And now with the introduction out of the way, what is new and what is to be expected in the future?
Our current plans are as follows:
- Optimization, and more optimization
- Forking old and outdated plugin to improve efficiency
- Developing new ideas and plugins for the server
- Improvement of brand image and further expansion
- Hire a sub-team of developer(s) to assist me with development
- Improve the back-end architecture
Recent changes (from the moment I came back until now):
+ Improved the database structure and reduced the load, which lead to less lag and better performance.
+ Started working on the reputation system once again to finish it once and for all.
+ Created a new section on the website to view the server and players statistics, this is the first stage, many more features will come in the future.
> You can access it via this link: https://mccities.com/statistics.php or you can click on "Server stats" in the navigation bar of the website. Image: + Crafting system, alongside reputation will be receiving a new update. Current Reward Shell will no longer be obtainable starting from this weekend. Reputation will be receiving partial reset along with seasonal rewards as well. More details will be available in the next update log.
I returned just a few days ago, so I'm still planning and setting up my schedule considering that I have work. Next time I will hopefully bring you more exciting updates.
Thanks for reading, until we meet again!
