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.

Good news, everyone! We’re moving ever closer to 1.13 support, and at this point we have approximately 75% of our plugins updated and running on Test. Our map plugin was just updated last night, so you can now access amap of Test at https://mt.gg/testmap/.
Currently lag and low mob spawns are a known issue. Many of the plugins are not yet optimized for 1.13 yet, and we are using VERY early Dev builds of Spigot which is causing the problem with mob spawns.
Cosmetics plugins are taking the longest to update. If they are the last to update we may have a vote on whether to update Main without them temporarily.
To those of you who are regularly playing on Test – Thank you! You have been invaluable in finding and squashing bugs so we can update Main sooner.
Stay tuned for more updates, and remember to vote for Minetown!
Since many people have had questions about the future of the 1.13 test server, we've decided to make a quick announcement about how we plan to go forward.
First, we want everyone to understand that the test server is, will continue to be, and always has been a temporary server. One month after main switches to a stable build of 1.13 we will be closing the 1.13 test server permanently.
Now this doesn't mean you'll be losing your hard work and items during the test period, we're all very grateful for your effort in helping us test 1.13 as thoroughly as you have, and we want to reward everyone who has played there, which brings us to the real meat of this announcement:
Every player who has played for more than a total of 24 hours on the 1.13 test server is eligible to have their bases migrated.
Now this does come with some limitations, we're only migrating a single base per player, and that base can't be any larger than 32x32 blocks in size. We'll grab anything that is within 16 blocks of the surface as well, but we're not migrating entire mines. In addition, you'll need to find a suitable location for us to migrate your base to and let us know where it is. In order to make this process easier we'll need you to contact us as soon as you have the location picked out, upon which you'll be awarded 5,000 MTC and asked to claim the space you want your base placed in. Once that is done we'll go over to the 1.13 server, grab the base of your choice so long as it fits inside the size limits, and paste it in for you.
Understand that this is a large undertaking. There is a lot of players waiting to have bases migrated, and we'll try to get to them as quickly as we can. If we can't get everything out in the allotted month period we may extend the deadline, but the future of the 1.13 test server is set in stone.
Prizes were automatically sent out. Thank you all for voting!
