Good morning everyone,

In case you haven't noticed the forums hasn't been updated in a while, that is mainly because our frequent use of our discord server! Most, if not all players use our discord server for basic communication with one another. So, what does this mean for the forums? Well simple. We plan on using the forums, mainly for those who either do not wish to use our discord server, and for the necessities, which include by not limited to: Staff applications, Ban appeals, Reports, and other fine things that are worth posting about. Not only is it easier to stay in touch with one another, it allows us to push out announcements faster. So I urge you to go check out our discord server, it'll only take a couple minutes to sign up for one (assuming you do not have one). You can either go to your browser and type the URL: discord.zeldaverse.net, or paste the invitation link into your discord app on your smart phone!

1.13.2

The past couple months we have been working hard on updating ZeldaVerse to 1.13.2. Not only has it been a hassle, but with all the changes to the spigot api, it has forced me to re-write a bunch of our plugins. We have had problems with mostly small things, like the Hook Shot, Pegasus Boots, Roc's Cape, and some small functions in Four Swords. I have just a little more work to do with our dungeon's plugin, but once I complete it, we should be fixed and running smoothly again. With the new 1.14 update coming closer every day, there has been hopes that Mojang will fix all the bugs and errors they have created for the entire spigot community, etc.

Dungeons update

With the new Hook Shot implemented, @Pavlovs_Walrus has been working hard on his Wind Waker Resource pack. If you are using it, you may be able to see the Hook Shot that was used in the Wind Waker while adventuring the...

A hardy hello, Hyrule!
Today, your favorite local newspaper lets you peer through the telescope to catch a glimpse of the rapidly approaching, highly anticipated, official opening of ZeldaVerse.

The New and Exciting
Seemingly without warning, a recent video released by none other than the salty ship-monkey @Linebeck himself has confirmed the release date for ZeldaVerse to lie a mere ten days in the future! Hold on to your floppy green hats, because July 21st marks the day when history will be made and the server will become available to the public.
And Vaati will sit upon the throne of Hyrule.
Though the reveal of the server's soon to come release was surely striking, one might argue that the video contained even more remarkable revelations. Despite the fact that video displayed fantastic builds, as previous videos have, they took a backseat to never before revealed content such as Phantom Tag, Four Swords, and other minigames. However, seeing as a picture is worth a thousand words, a short video recording at a mere thirty frames per second could potentially be worth several million. Therefore, do read the several million words of pictures contained in the source itself!

The End is Near, and it's Just the Beginning
A recent statement made by Linebeck has been circulating among the community of ZeldaVerse. It's heartfelt message comes in light of the magnitude of what is to come, and therefore, it has been included here for your pleasure:
"Greetings everyone!

All of you, as well as I, have been waiting very patiently for this day to come. We as a staff team, and a family have journeyed through the Great Sea, and finally stumbled upon our destination. A destination in which we can break ground and build something wonderful, this...

Moving One Step Closer
With the exception of @Majora's facial expression, things are never static here at ZeldaVerse! Everyone's favorite man of the sea, @Linebeck, ensures that his hearty crew get things done, and in doing so, may or may not use the threat of walking the plank as motivation. The newest server trailer attests to the progress that he and his loyal, albeit salt-covered, sailors have made. In it, iconic scenes stand beautifully and accurately recreated. Dragoon Roost Island, Lake Hylia, and other recognizable locations beckon to beholders, promising adventure, and asking to be thoroughly explored. But don't take our word for it; see the sights for yourself!


When asked to comment on the present state of ZeldaVerse, Linebeck responded:
"We have come a long way! ZV's main server is done, and we are working hard on additional projects that will make ZeldaVerse even better! I know everyone has been waiting so patiently for release. I assure you it is nearing completion, and there won't be anymore delays or changes to the server. I know I've said that before, but we have been progressing faster the past couple of months. ZeldaVerse has changed drastically in the past six months, and lots of ideas have been thrown around and out in that time frame. The wait will be well worth it!"

A hardy hello, Hyrule!
Today’s issue of your favorite (and only) local newspaper takes a look at a few major cosmetic changes to have recently emerged.
[​IMG] Out With the Old, and In With the New!

As you have most likely already noticed, ZeldaVerse’s logo has been completely revamped. If this has somehow eluded your notice, simply scroll up and admire its new, refined look or consult an optometrist at your nearest convenience. The new logo combines the network’s familiar color scheme with two gold diamonds, the Hookshot from Ocarina of Time, and Majora’s Mask from... well, Majora’s Mask. The pulsating of the logo combines with the eyes on the mask to produce a hypnotic effect designed to induce the desire to play the server... maybe.

ZeldaVerse’s server icon has similarly undergone a major overhaul. Instead of a rendering of Linebeck and Link, a stylized “Z” and “V” will appear beside the server’s entry in your server list from now on. Though perhaps a tad less charming than the previous picture, the new icon exudes polished professionalism.

Good evening everyone,

Today is the release of the new 1.12 version of "The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Resource Pack", and we would like to share it with everyone. Pavlov_Himself has been working very hard the past couple of months to present this to you. He has separated his pack into two different parts, one contains all the textures, and the other contains music. This is one of the main resource packs that we have been using on ZeldaVerse, especially since it ties in with our Great Sea project. We hope you all enjoy his hard work!

Best regards,

Linebeck

Hello everyone! With Summer Vacation coming to a close, production may not be as fast as it used to be, but I am very proud to say that the server is very close to being complete! If you join our forums within this time and want to join, white-listing is no longer allowed Just to make it clear :). Also, you may have noticed that our forums have updated drastically, and hopefully looks a lot better than it used to!

Over the course from the last update, to this one, Zeldaverse has made some MAJOR improvements! Therefore if you remain patient, you will be able to see these updates yourself when the server opens! We have maintained a reputation for not downloading/stealing any of our maps, and we intend to keep it that way -- forever.

As for more good news, the server is now fully functional on 1.12! @Linebeck has been working tirelessly to bring this server to this new version and updating the server to make these new additions and other amazing upcoming things!

We have also added more to the server; but you will have to wait and see what they are!

Sincerely, Sky (@SkywardWolves)
Good morning,

Welcome to our forums, your place to express yourself, and your way to contact us anytime our staff is available. You; yes you, are important to us, everything that surrounds our server is very important to us, and if you have any suggestions that you feel would enhance people's experience on our server, please, contact a staff member as soon as possible with your idea. We love your feedback!

As for recent news, we have been working on the ever so awaited Dungeon World - as that is our highest priority as of this moment in time. I'd like to personally thank each and every one of our staff members for taking their time, and their loyalty for us; for this; for ZeldaVerse. I want to thank everyone that has played a major role in the server:
Our Mod Team: @kylestiel, @Windy, @LunaCandy, and @DittoGaming935

Our Arch-Mods: @SeJo, and @PrincessAgitha

Our Helpers: @Phoenix, and @MajoraGamer

I want to thank you all personally for all of the hard work and dedication you've put into this server; you've made contributions to us that I will never forget; no matter what happens.

As for builds, we are hard at work building things from some of your favorite Zelda and non-Zelda titles! We also have been working vigorously on the long-awaited Dungeons world as well, as we have just finished some temples and dungeons. With only a few more to go, we will be completing it soon!
As for what builds; you will have to wait for the server to release!

We are not only a team, we are a family, and we will welcome new members to our family with open arms. If you want to become a part of ZeldaVerse, you are free to join us at any moment in time. Here, we do not believe in the tyrannous treatment of people with the binds of favoritism, and we want to treat every single member with equality, and equity. We do not believe in the...​
Hello all from ZeldaVerse and Guests!
Some new builds will be introduced in the next 'update' to ZeldaVerse. Those will be kept a secret until they are fully released! As someone once said, 'The best kind of surprise... is a SUR-prise!'

With some good news, there is also some bad news to follow. Due to the actions of some very immature people:
We will no longer accept whitelist requests

I know this will break some of your hearts, but fear not! The server is close to being released! So just be patient and stay vigilant my good players!
Meanwhile please enjoy some Linebeck memes:
