Introducing Staff Departments

We introduced Administrative Days at the beginning of the year to streamline processes and ensure that applications do not get left out by tracking the progress and completion of all server administrative tasks.

The effectiveness of this change can be seen in the large decrease in the number of complaints made relating to the timeliness of the processing of the applications.

Regulatory Enforcement Action such as the Gardellia Abandoned Claims is also being carried out on a more regular basis – a major improvement over the previous arrangement where enforcement action was sporadically taken.

Introducing train throttle

Trainthrottle is a new mode of train control for manually operated trains on the WolvHaven server.

Unlike previous methods of train driving, the train operator applies power/brakes to the train instead of directly setting the train speed – allowing for a more realistic, fun and challenging experience.

Train throttle was originally conceptualized in 2017 but initial attempts to turn it into reality failed. Special thanks to mopsistudios for spearheading the project & seeing it to fruition.

Usage & Commands

Enabling train throttle

  • Spawn a train
  • Claim the train
  • /throttle enable

Disabling train throttle

  • /throttle disable

Throttle Controls

  • Lime Wool – Increase power / decrease brake
  • Red Wool – Decrease power / increase brake
  • Yellow Wool – Reset throttle to neutral
  • Orange Wool – Set train speed to 0.4
  • Gray Wool – Relaunch train. Only use if your train screws up

Change control order preferences

  • /train preferences hotbarorder <true/false>
    True: Green-Red-Yellow-Orange-Grey
    False: Green-Yellow-Red-Orange-Grey

For more info on Standard Operating Procedures etc, please watch the video.

Burning Questions

What will happen to the original method of train control?

The original methods will still remain as the primary mode of operation. Exams & tests conducted for train examinership etc. will remain under the original method.

Will it become mandatory for drivers to use throttle in the future?

As of now, there are no plans to mandate train throttle as the only method of train control. As train throttle brings a more realistic experience, more driver practice may be required. Train throttle is seen as an advanced method of train control and will remain optional for use as of now.

What if my inventory is not restored after I disable my throttle?

Rarely an error might occur and your previous inventory is not restored when disabling your throttle. If such an error occurs, please immediately contact Staff on our discord and include what time you roughly enabled your throttle. Please note we can only restore your inventory when you are currently online.

What if I accidentally speed/overrun using train throttle?

General demerits will still apply. However, as operators will take time to get used to it, all infractions of speed codes etc. done unintentionally will not be considered for the first until May.

You are only advised to use train throttle if you have a stable internet connection and operate the trains at a slower speed if it is your first try.

Replacement Shop Plugin Trial

As many of you are aware, our existing shop plugin is giving us a lot of problems and we have had to remove a lot of shops lately.

We have also asked for any recommendations for a replacement plugin. After searching high and low, we have decided upon giving QuickShop a try.

Please do help us test out the plugin and notify staff of any issues you face. We look forward to hearing your feedback.

We are terminating the forums

The WolvHaven Forums – originally created to be the central hub for discussion has served its purpose well. The forums bonded the community through conversations and discussions that were posted there. However, like all things, it eventually must come to an end.

Heads Galore!

The custom head – an amazing way to add more details to your builds. However, we all know the pain of getting them. Requesting for an admin to place down a command block and then copy pasting a give command is tedious and rather inconvenient.

That’s why we’ve implemented a new plugin called HeadsInventory! The plugin allows you to easily get heads for use within the server from popular minecraft head websites such as freshcoal, mineskin and minecraft-heads!

Architect Rank Reform

Since its introduction in 2012, the Architect rank has been the primary aspect of the server to recognize the talents of individuals with good or exceptional building skills. As time goes on however, administration and management for the rank and its holders have gone haywire.

Informal schemes introduced along the way without proper documentation such as the temporary architect scheme have caused dissatisfaction among current architects and have also led to some cases where temporary holders of the rank abused its powers to work on their own projects instead of the projects that were assigned to them.
