Once you are part of a verified clan, all your kills will start to be recorded. Deaths by other player's are also recorded. This includes any type of death, even indirect deaths (falling into lava while fighting, getting pushed into some mobs, drowning, etc). The way the kills are attributed works like CombatTag. When a player hits you in battle you become tagged, if you die while being tagged by a player that player gets the point for your death. Tags wears off in 5 seconds (configurable).
All kills are not equal. Killing a member of a rival clan, of a neutral clan, and a civilian not attached to any clan all carry different weights. Rival: 1.5, Neutral: 1, Civilian: 0.5 (configurable).
Each player has a Kill/Death Ratio score that is calculated and attributed to them. This is the ratio between your kills and your Deaths (your weighted kills divided by your deaths). This is the metric that shows a player's skill level.
For example, If your weighted kills are 1000 points but you died twice as much, say 2000 times, then your KDR will be low (.5), far lower than a player who only killed 20 players but died only 1 time (KDR of 20). This is THE system that determines how good of a PvPer you are. The higher the KDR the more worth you are to your clan. A noob that has been playing for a few months can amass a huge amount of kills and claim to be good at pvp, but his low *** Kill/Death ratio wont lie.
Kills and Deaths will only be recorded if you are in a verified clan. If you resign from your clan and become a free agent, your kills and deaths will stop being recoded and your KDR will freeze until you join another verified clan.
You can see your KDR on your clan's stats page and the server leaderboard. If you suck at pvp you will be low on the lists, if they are good they will show near the top.
Players in the same clan and players in allied clans have friendly fire protection from each other, they won't be able to hurt each other. Leaders of clans can turn this on and off with the /clan clanff
command. Each player can also turn off his own friendly fire protection at any time using the **/clan ff** command, he will be able to allow friendly fire or to set it to auto, which is whatever the clanff is. He will not be able to block friendly fire if his clan has allowed it, but he will be able to allow it if his clan has blocked it.
Status within a clan
Creators of clans will become the first clan leader. They can invite other members into the clan with /clan invite
. These members are first added with the untrusted
status. These members will not be able to view clan vitals, coords, or stats. This is to prevent players form joining clans just to spy on other clans by writing down coordinates of bases or viewing vitals during battles. Once a player has gained the clan's trust he can be upgraded to trusted status with /clan trust
You can have multiple leaders on a clan. You can promote other leaders using the /clan promote
command. To promote a leader all other leaders must be online and must accept the vote. A leader cannot be promoted unilaterally without the consent of all other leaders. Demotion using the /clan demot
e command works the same way.
* Example of a clan invite request
There are two types of clans, verified and unverified clans. When a player first creates a clan it will be of type unverified. These clans have a reduced feature set, no coords, vitals, stats, etc, they will not show up on any clan listings, and are automatically deleted if none of its members log in for 48 hours (configurable). Their purpose is to give your members quick and easy teaming up abilities without polluting your server with dozens of abandoned one off clans.
Your clan can be verified if it has existed for 2 or more days and has 3 or more members. To get your clan verified, make a thread here: HERE
. After you are verified you will then be able to enjoy the full feature set of SimpleClans. Verified clans have an inactivity timer of 7 days. After this amount of time the clan will be automatically deleted.
When a clan is created, you must give it a name and a tag. The tag will be used as the unique identifier for you clan, will be used in the clan commands, and will pretty much represent your clan. This tag can have color codes which can be later modified using the /clan modtag
command. The tag will prefix all clan player's names on chat.
* Example of how tags look in chat (staff and MAX are clans, the first line there in aqua is clan chat)
Each clan will automatically have access to clan chat using their tag. For example a team that has a tag named "noobs" will be able to use clan chat with the command /noobs
Clan Alliances and Rivalries
Any clan leader can send an request to start an alliance with any other clan with /clan ally add
. If the request is accepted by a leader of the second clan, the alliance is formed. The alliance can be broken by any leader of either clan at any time with /clan ally remove
, no one needs to accept the removal of an alliance.
Clan rivalries can be started by any clan at any time, no request is needed, rivalries are automatically formed once a clan leader decides he wants one by using /clan rival add
. If someone has pissed you off and you want them as rivals, their permission is not needed. To break a clan rivalry on the other hand, you need the acceptance of the other clan, you must use /clan rival remove
to send the other clan a request, once one of their leaders accept the rivalry is broken.
You can view a list of all clans and their allies with the /clan alliances
command, or their rivals with the /clan rivalries
* Example of the clan alliances page
With the /clan leaderboard
you can compare all clan players. The leaderboard is sorted by KDR, this will tell you who to fear, or what free agent you may want to invite to your clan.
Clan Bulletin Board
All clan activity is logged. The last ten events are displayed to each clan member when they log in and can be puled up at any time with the /clan bb
command. This is a record of who is doing what in the clan. Leaders can add messages they want to communicate to their clan members using /clan bb [msg]
. These messages will be added to the bulletin board and will also be announced to any members that are currently online.
The /clan roster
command shows you the members of your clan. Here you can see your clan's members status as well as when the last time they were seen online was.
The /clan vitals
command shows you the vitals of all online members of your clan. Here you can see their health, what armor and weapons they are carrying and of what materials, and how many hearts all of their food contains. This comes in handy during battle to know who you need to help and who can bring help to you.
The /clan coords
command shows you the distance and coordinates of all online members of you clan, sorted by distance. With this you will be able to know who to call for help during a raid/battle.
Your clan's stats screen, opened with the /clan stats
command, shows you all of your clan members KDR, raw kills, and deaths stats. Leaders show on the top and members on the bottom. Leaders are sorted by KDR, and members are sorted by KDR. This screen tells you who are the strongest leaders, and who are the strongest members. This screen shows you who It will also show you the current weights for the different types of kills.
You can look up your own or another players info using /clan lookup
command. This gives you all the data concerning the player, his KDR, his kills and deaths, the date when he joined the clan, when he was last seen, a list of all past clans hes been part of, and how many days he has been inactive for.
