Get ready for some new, exciting changes Minetown! New features, events, and servers are on the horizon! Here’s a taste of what’s to come!
The long anticipated skyblock server is almost here! It will be launched on the night of November 30! We'll be putting out some preview screenshots in the next few days as well
A few changes to the event schedule. Events will be no longer announced the day of anymore, but instead will be announced (along with prizes) ahead of time. From now on, at the beginning of the week, Event Team will announce the event schedule in advance for the upcoming week. This will be posted in a google doc in discord, and on the forums in the event schedule sidebar. We hope this makes it easier for you all to attend events.
Speaking of events...we have some new ones planned in the coming weeks. This friday (Black Friday) we will be running some events in honor…(or dishonor, depending on how you look at it) based off the infamous Black Friday “holiday.” Looking ahead past that, we will be launching a new build event soon, along with some winter-themed events. It will truly be a winter wonderland in Minetown.
We will be launching a new pet plugin at the end of November as well! This plugin includes many different types of pets. Some will be seasonal, while others will be year round. Collect (or catch) them all
Unfortunately, the blaze farm is going to be shut down. New spawn mechanics introduced in the 1.13 update broke the spawner, and as a result, it’s time to retire it. As of right now, there is no public xp farm, but we are open to help make a farm public, similar to our policy with roads and rails. If you are interested in making your farm fully public, contact staff, and we will discuss it with you.
Vote vote vote! Remember to /vote! We need voters to help the server gain more players. Remember, you can always vote offline, as the you will get the rewards when you login to the server. Also keep in mind, we have introduced the ability to gain /namecolor colors through voting from Test into Main. Every 200 votes, you may purchase through the vote shop (available through the /vote GUI) one /namecolor. In addition, we have made a few changes to top voter. Top voter will now receive a temporary [TV] tag for one month, and will have access to all pets for a month. The other voting rewards (for both a normal vote and top voter rewards) will remain the same.
Finally, we want to ask you, the player, your thoughts on Minetown. It’s been a bit quiet lately, and we want to know what else might help you play on the server. Please fill out this survey so we can know what the community wants most.
