Passing the torch…

We have big news! Everybody Edits has a new owner!  MrShoe and MrVoid are very busy people and could no longer find time to work on the game. What does this mean for the game then? More updates, bug fixes, and more feature implementation.

Our first task was to extend the Everybody Edits staff.  We have asked Toop, Master1, Thanel, and UltraBass to help us. They have all agreed, and so the new Everybody Edits team is now:

Moderators: NVD, JaWapa, Toop.
Guardians: Kingoftheozone, Thanel, UltraBass, Master1.

The second thing we did, was work extensively on updates. As soon as we heard the news that we were going to run the game now, we instantly went to work. With the entire team working very hard, we are about to release one of the biggest updates ever to EE.

See you in the worlds,
The new Everybody Edits team.

EDIT: Beta is now available in the Energy Shop for $7,50

Holographic Environment Simulator

Or, hologram block for short ;-)

We have added a new block! When you touch it, you turn into a hologram of a smiley.

news_hologram

And thanks for all the great entries to the SciFi competition. There is really a lot of creative and cool worlds!

Remember that there is still time to send in your submissions. Check out the previous blog post for more info.

And also in this update:

  • New landing page image (themed for the season) (done by jawapa)
  • Changed max. portal ids to 999
  • Added /getblockplacer command.
    • Simply type /getblockplacer (or /gbp) to activate. Then click a block to get the name of whoever placed that block. Type command again to deactivate. Only world owners (and Guardians) can use this command. And it only works with blocks placed since the world was last opened.
  • Added a command that allows Guardians to ban worlds.
    • If a world is banned, only Guardians and the world owner can access it.

See you in the worlds!

Best,

MrShoe and MrVoid

No animated worlds (such as eeditor and ee artist)

Judges are not allowed to enter the contest.

Fastest leaf on the tree

It is yet again time to celebrate the changing seasons (especially in the northern hemisphere)! Introducing the Autumn pack 2014 with pumpkins, leaves and acorns.

news_autumn

 

A big thanks to Toop who made the graphics for the Autumn pack. As always, seasonal blocks are time limited. So hurry up!

Besides the new graphic pack, we also made a Potion of Speed! Perfect for showing of or running away from zombies! Or…eat the brains of those who are not zombies yet ;-)

 

Free Chat

We have received countless mails regarding free chat, so we have now introduced an email verification, which allows you to enable free chat. Simply sign up for our newsletter in the News section and follow the instructions in the mail.

 

Guardians

Ultrabass has chosen to resign from the Guardian team. We thank him for all the help he has given us!

We will start looking for a replacement for him as soon as possible.

 

Also in this update

We have had Nvd help us with this update, and he also fixed a lot of minor stuff.

  • Button to set World visiblity. Turn it off to hide your world in the world list.
  • Added text bubbles to portals to show id and target, when you’re in god mode.
  • Changed Gem Icon
  • Fixed black background behind bricks in the brick selector.
  • Fixed profiles not loading correctly.

 

Competition

We are working on the last details on a new world competition, which will start next week. Stay tuned for more!

 

See you in the worlds!

Best,

MrShoe and MrVoid

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chat

As you can all probably imagine, we have received a lot of mails regarding chat. So this post is to explain the problem and an invite for everyone to give suggestions on how to fix it.

 

The problem

The problem with chat is not the swearing. In general, there is an sober tone in the chat. At least not worse than one can expect. We would always like to improve the atmosphere, but this is not the reason we are removing chat.

What is the problem is groups of people targeting single users, stalking them and bullying them. And even if there is a Guardian around to ban the bullies, they simply created new accounts and continued.

This is a behaviour we simply can not allow, and the system with free chat makes this kind of abuse too easy.

 

Solutions

If anyone have any suggestions to a solution that makes it possible for players to enable free chat, but still makes it impossible for trolls to obtain (and too valuable for them to loose), we are very open to hearing your suggestions.

 

For now

In the meantime, we have made chat cheaper, so it is now only 1$, which includes 20 gems. What a bargain!

 

 

Best regards,

MrShoe and MrVoid
