I have scoured the internet for almost five days now looking for a fix to this issue, but I cannot seem to find and fix it on my own, mainly because I am so new to both Maven and PlayN so I'm not entirely sure at what I'm looking at exactly. But, it is clearly fizzing up at building the core. Seems it can't download an "artifact filter", and is unable to run Surefire's test. But, I'm just speculating on things I don't quite understand fully, even though I've been trying to research these things like crazy. Any help from more experienced people would be very, very, appreciated. I'm losing my mind on this.
The problem with me was related to the project I was working last year, which required a certain proxy on maven settings (located at \maven\conf\settings.xml and C:\Users\\.m2\settings.xml). The proxy was blocking the download of required external packages. 2b1af7f3a8
