Minetown is a multi-server community that houses many different servers for all play styles; Survival, Creative & Skyblock. Minetown has kept to it's roots of a great play experience since we launched over 6 years ago. We hope to see you around!
Head to head battle of building prowess. One member versus one staff in a competitive build off for ultimate fame and glory. If desired it can be teams, but usually works best one on one. Both sides are given chests pre-filled with identical base resources, so logs, coal, stone, sand, the occasional stack of saplings and the like, some diamonds and emeralds. The idea of this is to prove you know how to make the most of every item in the game. This event is a quick event and should only last 30 minutes, usually you would run 2-3 of these events back to back or whenever you have more than 5 people online interested in watching. If both people finish in time it is left up to the one running the event to decide who best fulfilled the requirements and made the better use of them. Prize is usually cash for the member if the member wins and bragging rights… staff member who participates just gets honor and glory so that they’ve defended the staff’s mighty reputation.
Players compete in a contest to build the best thing. They have an allotment of time between 2 and 5 hours, leaving their plot disqualifies them, and all participants are provided the same materials to work from. Can YOU build a masterpiece better than all the others. Follow the theme and you could win! (winners are judged by 3-5 staff or members who didn’t participate or by the whole participating body. This kind of event can have a first second and third place prize, and even honorable mentions if needed. Can also display the winners and honorable mentions.)
Event in which 10 by 10 vertical tubes are filled with dirt, some colored wool, and the occasional loot chest with some golden shovels and loot that will make your digging faster or wool gathering faster. Maybe even some planks to aid in making ladders to get back up. There should be a posted sign that says what each color of wool is worth point wise, and the goal is to dig and get the most wool back into a chest at the top of the tube before the time runs out and place it in the chest. Once the time is called the event runner will check the chests and add up the points, the person with the most points wins the prize.
Minetown has a regular "Saturday Night Spleef" every Saturday at 10:30pm at either /warp spleef, or /warp alexandriaSpleef. The event world houses the "Team Spleef", and "Multi-Level" Spleef arenas, in which players can compete at any time.

Like I mentioned in the previous newspost, I'm aware everyone is anxiously waiting for the new world and hardware, but yet again I come to announce some additional delays. We were almost done setting up the new server we bought a month ago, but a new idea came up. To bring Minetown to the level where we want to take it and with the amazing donation amount you guys contributed in the last months, we will now be affording 3 servers instead of one ! We revaluated our needs and we wanted the best for Minetown. We are currently building an overpowered 3 servers cluster with high-end hardware that will be hosting our Minecraft servers. Why 3 servers ? Load balancing. We will be running multiple worlds on multiple instances. Minetown will be turned into a conglomerate of 5-10 servers all connected together. This new setup will make our server better, faster and more secure. It will also allow us to create and bring back some worlds(like the Underworld) that requires much more heavier instances of the game, without affecting the other servers. Like I mentioned in my previous message, all those worlds will be linked in a way that will make it almost impossible to tell that you are connected to a distinct server. To achieve this project, we have to code and recode a bunch of stuff. The dev team is currently working on those things. Again, if you have talent, time and interest, we are always looking for more good developers to help. So, as I said, we were just done assembling and configuring the ~1800$ server we bought a month ago. We now just made the purchase of 2 other servers for a total of ~7500$. In sum, Minetown will be hosted on ~9500$ of hardware and we will also still be using our previous ~6500$ server to host other stuff. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? Although, this should take an additional 1-3 weeks to set up. Once it is completed, our server should be one of the most powerful, if not the most, Minecraft server out there. I apologize for the extra delay, but big projects take big time and efforts. Once we have the servers all built, we will post some pictures of the cluster on the website. For those who have more technical knowledge and interest on the matter, here are the planned specs of those servers.
Again, thank you for choosing Minetown as your Minecraft server and thank you for all your donations which make projects like these possible.
In the same context, we will be holding a contest in the following days and weeks to hear about your world(s) suggestions.
The winners will win some MT credits and also some unique Minetown mousepads with their characters on them !
