Greetings bots,

We hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Sunday, and for those running in Boston and watching the marathon, we extend our condolences to those that are out their in remembrance of those that were injured in last years event, and wish to extend our best wishes to those that are currently, have finished, or will finish the marathon. In other news, a few days ago, @Jose211594 posted a map update that included our third Core Games map being released to the server. This update, as well with the updates the developmental team has been making this weekend has compiled a huge list of changes for the Core Games.

These are the official v0.02 changes:
  • - Now when four players remain, the timer until deathmatch is set to 2.5 minutes instead of 1 minute.
  • - Added the CoreRadio for players to enjoy.
  • - In-game chat has been changed to mirror the chat in the hub.
  • - Decreased the...

Hello bots!

What time is it? Server map update time! Over the past few weeks, there have been several problems with maps. I'd like to apologize on behave of the build team and map issues. I'd also like to announce that all of those issues have been solved. On top of that, we rolled out a set of maps for our game modes.
Map Fixes/Future Changes
  • Fixed terrain issues on certain maps
  • Fixed the FPS intensive lag on the CG map, Frentia.(Known as the Corrupted Chunk Lag)
  • Changed layouts for map making allowing for easier map creation and faster map development
  • Players can also expect to see the use of note block songs or sequences in maps, allowing for more in-game depth and mechanics.
Map Updates
So, like I mentioned earlier, several maps have...

Greetings bots,

We've decided to add some nice changes to Hot Potato right before Easter! These changes include fixing all current known plugin bugs, and all map bugs. Our current goal, and scope of this project, is to review and clean up some of the older mini games, and add new features that make the game seem more 'active' and professional.

These are the official v0.04 changes:
  • - Added the Core Radio, in which players can listen to their favorite note block songs while in-game!
  • - Changed the in-game chat format to resemble the hub chat format.
  • - Items that are dropped in the arena now have a resonating effect similar to Slime Ball.
  • - Added a cool looking particle effect for players that are joining the game, while the game hasn't started.
  • - Added a few enhancement sounds to make the game sound more lively....

Hey bots!

So, we've had a few problems with some servers and maps yet nothing has been changing... We would like to apologize to all our community members for the lack of activity. We've been busy but now we're back in gear developing and working hard daily.

So, to kick things off most of you will notice that we decided to push one of our up-coming new games to named SlimeBall the server for beta testing to tie you guys over *yay*. Now, we also recently changed our chat formatting, jump on our server IP: coremc.us and chat with some players to check it out! This was just the start of it, we'll actually be changing it just a little bit more.

Next off due to the recent testing of note block songs (NBS) in SlimeBall,...

Hey bots!

We've just released a brand new gamemode called SlimeBall, which is much like the real life game football (UK)/soccer (US). The aim of the game is to get the slime into the opposite side's goal, simple, right? You can also get items that spawn in to give your team an advantage.

We will be releasing a coupon code soon, and we might even turn on double/triple coins for the rest of the weekend! :)

Please note: The game is still in beta, and statistics/leaderboards won't be enabled until a further date.

See you on the server!
