-Updated to 1.4, a lot of stuff changed so stuff might be broken, backed up everything in case shit hits the fan.
-Updated mining - Made it so diamonds or diamond ore can spawn at the same rate as gold, ore block spawns less often. Coal drops now as well as coal ore blocks, coal ore is less common.
-Added command - /resetallskills (skill name) sets the named skill to 50 and every other skill to 0. Useful for new characters to try out different skills as well as giving them a little kickstart in one skill.
-You can now track wolves
-Fixed a possible exploit with buttons.

Added a couple new rules (brings the total to 4 now!) I don't like adding rules but I feel these are necessary for a thriving server, at least for now.
http://wiki.lostshard.com/index.php?title=Rules

4/4/11
-Chatting now resets the afk timer
-You no longer drop items if you log out in PvP
-Guards now kill instantly This is temporary and will be removed when I can keep your character logged in for some amount of time when you log out. Right now you can get attacked by a guard and relog which would cause the guard to stop attacking you which is pretty broken.
-You are now notified when someone attacks you, this is implemented kinda crappy and might screw up sometimes. Its set up to let you know who attacked you but not spam you with attack messages. This is only temporary until the invisibility bug is fixed.
Tracking is still broken, still waiting on a fix from bukkit people.


4/3/11
-Reduced the drop rate of diamond with mining.
-Added a thing that indicates subscribers in global chat
Tracking is broken until the bukkit people fix a bug and there is (according to people in the bukkit irc) no way to stop paintings from getting knocked down yet, hopefully soon.

4/5/11
-Fixed buckets being used on protected plots
-Implemented reserved slots for subscribers
---This works like this: the cap is 20 players, when we reach the cap, subscribers can still log in up till 23 (3 subscribers currently) Ideally we'll be able to raise the cap before too long.

edit: still waiting on bukkit people for a compass fix and I wasn't able to look into the permanent gate issues because my power went out [SSSS] [SSSS]

4/7/11
-Reduced cast time on permanent gate to 2 seconds from 6
-You can now use scrolls to cast up to 7th circle spells
-You can no longer use permanent gate while standing in a protected plot unless you are the owner or co-owner of the plot. The same applies for the target rune location.

4/5/11
-Permanent gates are now more permanent. From now on, the only way to destroy a gate (permanent or temporary) is to right click on them. If you right click on a gate both sides will be destroyed, but you can't destroy a gate of any kind on a protected plot unless you are the owner/co-owner of the plot. However, if you place a permanent gate in a protected plot and it leads to somewhere unprotected, someone could close the gate from the unprotected side.
-Removed /me command

4/8/11
-Red chat bracket for admins in global
-Transfer plot ownership
--Added /plot transfer (player name)
---This command allows the owner of a plot to transfer it to another player. To use it, stand in the plot you wish to transfer and type the command. Ex: If I wanted to transfer my plot to luciddream, I would type "/plot transfer luciddream"
-Updated some subscription stuff:
--Added /sub which tells you your subscription status and your subscription days remaining.
--If you have an automatic subscription it will just say "auto bill" otherwise it will show you your subscription days remaining from one time donations. When the subscription days run out the subscription benefits turn off. From now any amount donated will get you subscriber days equivalent to 31 days per $10, so a 5 dollar donation will get you 16 days and a 30 dollar donation will get you 93 days. I've given everyone who has donated so far 31 days of subscription.
-Updated /plot survey
--It is now much more easy to use and gives you more useful information. It now tells you stuff like whether or not you can build a plot somewhere and how big the plot can be.

4/9/11
-Added Spells:
--Clan Teleport (7th circle)
---Allows you to teleport to a clan mate. After the teleport, you are drained of all mana and stamina due to the stress of teleporting without a rune.
--Fire Walk (6th circle)
---Sets your feet on fire and makes you immune to fire for 15 seconds. Flames will appear at your feet as you walk around.

-Updated Spells:
--Recall
---Added some flavor text when you teleport
---You now get exausted of mana and stamina if you use "spawn" to teleport to the spawn when specifying a rune.

-Updated Commands:
--/spawn
---Added some flavor text when you teleport
---You now get exausted of mana and stamina if you use this command.
--/plot survey
---Now based on mining skill. At 0 mining skill you can survey for plots 100 blocks around you and at 100 mining skill you can survey for plots 500 blocks around you.

-Updated Skills:
--Mining
---Increased diamond drop rate somewhat
---/plot survey is now based on mining skill. At 0 mining skill you can survey for plots 100 blocks around you and at 100 mining skill you can survey for plots 500 blocks around you.

-Misc:
--Slightly simplified monster drop table, from now on Zombies drop spells from circles 1 and 2, Spiders drop spells from circles 3 and 4, Skeletons drop spells from circles 5 and 6 (including the new fire walk), and creepers drop spells from circles 7 and 8 (including the new Clan Teleport).
--You can now use /plot shrink (amount) to shrink plots by some amount. Only the plot owner can do this.

4/12/11

-Fixed a glitch with plot expansion, you can now expand closer to other plots, but you cannot expand to within 5 blocks of another plot.
-Added Redstone, Light Stone, Soul Sand, Netherrack and Lapis Lazuli to the mining drop table, they are all around 1:50 or so.
-Added a "dungeon" plot upgrade (10,000 coins). Dungeons spawn monsters while protection is on but monsters killed in a dungeon plot only drop items/scrolls if they are killed by players.
-Lapis Lazuli now acts like an anti-magic block. From now on you can't teleport, gate, clan teleport or bridge to or from a lapis lazuli block.
-Added commands /public and /private. Right now these simply toggle whether a clan member can teleport to you (private means clan mates can't teleport to you, public means they can) I will probably do more stuff with this in the future.
-While waiting on the bukkit people to fix compasses I have decided to change tracking a little. From now on instead of using a compass for tracking it will just tell you in chat roughly the direction you need to head in to find your target. It will tell you "You see tracks leading off to the North/South/EastWest" and you will need to figure out which direction that actually is. (Protip: Clouds move south to north, sun rises in the east and sets in the west)
-If you set your spawn to a bed in a town and then the bed gets moved somewhere else your spawn will be reset to the default (Baghdad Ruins/Booty Bay) the next time you die.

-Fixed a bug with fire walk that made you invincible while it was active (oops)

4/14/11
-Reduced the stamina requirement of repair to 10 from 25.
-Fixed an issue with plot transfer. It should now remove you as a friend and co-owner when it sets you to owner.
-Friends of plots may now use buttons and switches. There has been a thread about this change for like a week, if you haven't double checked your friends list recently you probably should now.
-New players start with 5 gold ingots worth 500 coins in their bank box.
-You now have a chance of getting gains of .1 to .5 at all skill levels of magery.

4/17/11
-Bridge spell now uses leaf blocks instead of stone, it looks better imo and it means that the occasional bridge sticking around is easier to clean up/cleans itself up
-Tried a couple things with the invis bugs - from now on (and this is only temporary) if you move more than 800 blocks from the position you log in at you will be kicked. You can log right back in and this is simply an attempt to lessen the impact of the invis bug.

-Added 7th circle spell Fly.
--This spell lets you fly while holding down shift. Lasts 30 seconds. Its probably buggy and probably broken or overpowered or something but play with it and see I guess.
