What is The War?
The war is just when groups of people attack each other in the game, usually based on race. No game elements have been changed, it's just more likely that death will occur with the new Human, claim and Werewolf updates.


What "updates"?
Humans now have a supernatural tracker they can use in which they can see the nearest Vampire (if it's night) and the nearest Werewolf (if they're transformed). Werewolves have the /ww track command where they can sniff a player by hitting them and they get a particle effect towards them.

Hunting (werewolf and human) plugin updates: http://new-heaven.us/hunting/

As PVP is forced on if you step into a claim that you're not trusted on, it will encourage more fighting on the server. The new Human and Werewolf tracking systems also encourage this. No game elements have or will be changed for the war.​

Punishment Reform
We've finally finished and agreed on a new system determining the proper punishment for rules being broken. From now on, the staff members should be enforcing the rules more consistently and fair based on how severe the offense and how often it has happened. The numbers and details are subject to change if the community feels that the current management is unfair or unjust.

Please remember that if you feel you are being unjustly punished, do not argue in the chat about it, go seek the community manager or post your concern on the forums in order to get it processed and looked up. Otherwise, complaining and arguing won't get anything fixed.

Land Claiming on Survival

We have nothing against players building together on the same piece of land, or on separate land next to each other. We do, however, have an issue when players suddenly decide they no longer like their neighbours and start causing issues.

If you are building with someone, be mindful of the fact that you both own it. If you suddenly decide you no longer want to work with the other and kick them out, be aware that it's going to cause issues. While you should be able to work it out amongst yourselves, if it becomes a huge issue and interferes with everyone else's gameplay by intruding on the global/server chat, we (the staff) will become involved. You may not like or agree with our decisions on the matter.

If you are living with someone and have built everything yourself, go ahead, kick them out. But give them time to retrieve what is theirs first. They may globally complain about it otherwise. If it causes drama in...

Changing Creative

The gamemode creative is struggling to gain player's attention and stand it's own against the other servers. With the ways things are currently going it seems there is almost not point in keeping Creative as it's hardly used in comparison to other servers. It's been a part of the New-Heaven network from the start so we would hate to see it being lost but with a larger demand for resources to be put into Survival we are struggling to find justifications on keeping it.

Here we would like to ask you for your opinion on Creative and what can be done to make people want to use it more. What donations perks do you want to see? What new features would you like? Are there events you want to take place? I'd love to hear all of your opinions on this so please post below on what should be added in detail if you care enough. Without any good community responses on what should be changed there might not be a Creative...
