    I would remove Elementals its a server killer, apocalypse with it and your just asking for problems. you can also remove fire,water and lava from apoc's config they all cause more lag then normal blocks.

    I'm waiting for a stable bukkit, then ill do a update for the changes.

    @Splated: Go

    You could always get any hardcore plugin to increase the difficulty. Personally, I like combining this plugin with Elementals, blainicus' Monster Apocalypse, and Icynene's Storm (volcanoes and meteors) for ultimate Minecraft hell.

    Unfortunately, something hasn't been going right with this plugin. Mid-apocalypse in day 2 with ticker at 100, 1 change at a time, and only 2 playing, the entire server just lagged out and we lost our progress. I was fine when running it full force with just one person, but it seems to struggle with more people. The plugin worked great in 1.6, so is there any way to restore that level of stability? Running Spigot 1.7.10 with 4 GB RAM, up to 12 can be allocated if necessary.

    I've loved this plugin for many years, and so do my members, so we'd be sad to give it up. :)

    @portapipe: Go

    Look at /ApocAdmin AutoStart true

    As for the x days or x blocks you can do any contest you want on your server.

    I always wanted to do x deaths game over But it would be a second mod to count death.

    Hi :) If the server restart the apocalypse is stopped, not paused but stopped.
    Is there a way to let us reload daily our servers without the problem of starting it again?

    One more thing: it should be cool to have a sort of challenge, like "survive n° days" or "take n° blocks of ...." so it should be more interesting.
    If you have everything after some days is quite boring.
    Thanks :)
