Hey there! This is all the information you need, such as the guidelines and how to register your team. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below or engage in a conversation with me.

Admin team addition​

Hey everyone,

We are super excited to announce that @Mr. Dumpling is joining our team as an admin as a development project manager who will very closely be working with the developers and will help oversee and manage the developer team and the development priorities. Excitingly enough, he has been fulfilling those responsibilities for a few months now, but now with being on the team, he will be able to fulfill this role in the best possible way!

With all that being said, be sure to give him a warm welcome and a congratulations for this awesome achievement. We are all extremely excited for the future of DiamondFire, and as a more structured administration with jobs in more areas, this gives us a strong footing to keep guiding the server in the right direction with more strength than before!

Signing out for now, but give him a round of applause and thank you...

Team addition​

We are very excited to have @hibao aboard our admin team! Through awesome building, project management, and leading a build team and build project, hibao was confidently chosen to be on the admin team as a build team leader! A lot of the work has already been shown—the new Node 7 "Blossom" spawn was a massive build project led and managed by hibao and resulted in an astonishing build with a massive lore and background, and not to mention an alternate reality game that was embedded within it. Moreover, hibao will be leading more building projects like that in the future with the new organized build team!

Make sure to give them a big welcome!

New organized build team​

With a newly organized build team, we now have the most active builders sanctioned by the admin team (hibao)—ever, which is neat and goes to show...

Hey everyone! Patch 5.4.2 has been released.

Original announcement @Jeremaster
In this update, we’ve reworked the event prize ticket system. Prize tickets no longer expire, and they stack now! This means you can save up tickets across multiple events. Note that prices in the ticket shop have been adjusted accordingly. Special thanks to @ADumbChicken for his work on shop re-balancing, and @Reason for being the main driver and implementer of this rework.

This update also introduces a new double-lined codespace style, an improved /colors command, and more!

As always, big thanks to our Developer team for making this update happen.

Update: The server is back online.

FAQ
Here are the "Frequently Asked Questions"
  • Q: What happened?
    • A: There was a security incident where some DiamondFire services were breached. We took the server offline for around 4 hours to investigate the issue and take appropriate countermeasures.
  • Q: Did anything happen to my plots?
    • A: No. Your plots are all fine, as well as your tokens and other data.
  • Q: Is my data safe? Was any personal information leaked?
    • A: Any data related to the store (e.g. billing information) was not breached. It is possible, however, that some player IP addresses may have been leaked from server logs. For most of you who are not staff members, this will have no effect. Some players, particularly high-level staff, may have this information used to launch DDoS attacks. If this applies to you, we would recommend changing your IP by...

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".

Hey everyone!

Unfortunately, there was an outage today that caused some users to have experienced some degree of loss due to corrupted chunks. The development team tried their best to recover any data, so we are giving compensation for those who lost anything.

Compensation

Users who were affected by the outage and lost anything will be given:
  • 1x massive plot

We sincerely apologize for this news, but we hope this will help brighten your day. If you were affected, please post down below or inform a developer and it will be investigated.

Thanks all!

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:

Disabling or deleting your account

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.

If you are unsure about our Privacy policy or want us to take action on your account, continue reading.

Disabling your account

If you are thinking about leaving, and not sure if you want to fully delete your account, you can request an account disable. Once your account is disabled, you will not be able to post any new threads, comments, profile comments, or change any profile information.

Deleting your account

This is an irreversible action. We encourage you not to do this unless you're fully sure as this cannot be undone. When your account is deleted, your threads and comments will be fully anonymized, your profile cannot be accessed by anyone, and you will not be able to login again. This will delete your points and trophy points as well.

DiamondFire Championship

  • 5,620

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!
