Salutations Netizens of Miranda,
Today I introduce a new world to the players of Miranda that should aide in your quest for building grand things. This world is accessible to certain players who have participated and built things in Miranda, which I'm adding an additional rank as well!
The new rank is "Contractor" and it'll give you (as we've come to call it in Creeper's Lab) Blue Pants. With this rank, you will be whitelisted for the new world to aide in your creations. As you are all aware of the trusted procedure on Creeper's Lab, the Contractor rank will follow suit. Play in the world awhile and contribute builds to the world to help it grow. Eventually you will be moved to the new rank and whitelisted for the new world.
Four players are being given this rank today, and I thank them for their contributions and loyalty to building in Miranda. They are as follows:
They will immediately find their new rank and be able to access the new world.
I keep speaking of this "world" what is it you ask?
Symbolizing self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return.
This is a superflat creative world set to peaceful with perpetual daytime. I've made Ouroboros as a sandbox playground for Contractor rank players of Miranda. There, you are given creative mode to quickly build and test ideas without having to quit the game, open single player, and back in-game, potentially forgetting what you just looked at. You can build something, then swap back right to where you are for easier mirroring in Miranda survival.
There are a few differences naturally: Since this is a playground creative world, there are minimal plugins, no choptree, fastcraft, etc. The world is also cut-off, there is no cross-server chat with the outside world.
Also to prevent players from wanting to just camp in Ouroboros, and since it IS just a test-build world, the contents will not be backed up and the world will be occasionally wiped to clear space for other builds: If you need more time to study a build in Ouroboros to build in Miranda LET ME KNOW, else it WILL be wiped and gone forever.
The total world size is 500x500, which should be plenty enough test-build space for several users. Also, naturally no items are synced between the worlds.
Players with the Contractor rank can swap between Ouroboros and Miranda at will by using /ouroboros and /miranda. This will plop you right where you were previously so you can mirror anything made in Ouroboros.
If you wish to return to the Lobby, you MUST be in Miranda to use the /lobby command.
If there is a problem with Ouroboros, please be sure to contact me directly in IRC or PM me on the forums so I may reboot it, etc. as required. Any questions, feel free to ask.
As always, I thank DrCossack for allowing me to link to his magnificent server and post my news and infos on his website/forum, and other such nonsense. I also think the players who play on, and enjoy Miranda. If you guys didn't join and play, I'd have no reason to run it.
