Hey everyone!

The most recent Game Jam hosted by the events team started on March 12th and ended on March 19th. The special theme throughout the event was "Deleted". And with the theme being quite vast, this allowed game creators to cook up some really cool and unique ideas that were voted upon by the community.

Without further ado, here is an insiders look at the last game jam!


Interviews
I interviewed some of the top winners of the Game Jam to give everyone a look into the behind the scenes of some of the games that were submitted in the game jam.

Node 5 🌴

As you may have heard, Node 5 has been released, your local tropical paradise of minigame content creation - thanks to the amazing efforts of @Jeremaster, @Owen, and @Daedalus!

Every year, DiamondFire constantly expands in uniquely amazing ways. We got onto a great start this 2021 with CommandGeek uploading a video showcasing the network and the amazing things players can do with game creation tools at your disposal (which can be viewed here), so we needed some more breathing room. Give the development team a huge round of applause, and feel free to get on going with creating some amazing games at the new tropical node!

Huge thanks to the builders who helped create this tropical paradise lobby spawn:

Hi all, there is now a more efficient way to disable or delete your account. We understand that user privacy and the data we collect is important, and giving the freedom for users to take action is important. If you ever need to find this guide, it will be attached to the pinned forum guide.

Before, there was no way to do this besides direct messaging an administrator, so I established an easier way: If you're hesitant about our Privacy policy or want to leave, you can click click: Account deletion. Your post is completely anonymous, and you do not need to fill out a reason; however, one is provided in case you want to explain. Please note that deleting your account cannot be reversed, so disabling it is the best bet if you're really unsure.

DiamondFire Championship

Hey players of DiamondFire!

@Jeremaster and I are working on a new event concept, unlike any other normal event - the DF Championship.

What is the DF Championship?
Glad you asked! The DF Championship consists of around five or six individual events. Each event takes place on a player's plot over DiamondFire. Additionally, events would be selected from popular plots at the time. We are thinking that there will be teams of 4, and each team will compete in each event together; this depends on the exact event. Every event will be around 1 hour or less, giving teams enough time to fight to take home the prize. Better yet, each event will be on the weekends, giving players with an inadequate schedule a solid chance to enter.

This is unlike anything we have done before, so we are wondering what you guys think about this idea. More information will be revealed soon, but we need to figure out if it is something that you all would find interesting.

Patch 5.2.4 has been released! The server is now running on Minecraft 1.16.3, so all players will connect using the latest version of Minecraft. This update also fixes a bug where players wouldn't receive credits.

Here is a list of the changes:
  • Updated to 1.16.3! Players using the latest Minecraft version will now be able to join the server.
    • 1.16.3 contains no changes that affect DiamondFire, however.
  • Fixed credits not being given when playing games.
  • Fixed an issue with certain chat filters not applying to private messages.
  • Fixed an issue with Player and Entity Action: Set Invulnerability Ticks. This fix was released in a hotfix a few days ago, and not noted in any patch notes.
Update released by @Jeremaster, @K_Sasha, and @Daedalus. If you have any questions, let them know or reply here.

Enjoy the update!
