We now accept Bitcoin

Posted by on Nov 29, 2015 |

Quite often I get asked how can I donate to the server. And we’ve not offered any donation system for more than two years now. Charge backs, personal information handling and other annoyances have mainly kept me from not wanting to bring it back. Not to mention the changes to the EULA and the predatory tactics that servers use to encourage donations from children that leave a bad taste in my mouth.

But there is a way that you can donate to us securely, anonymously, without breaching the EULA and without the possibility of charge backs. And that is with Bitcoin.

So I’ve setup a Bitcoin address here: 39YAbVAR9XX2fQxpEeLqSYgBNrLHP5nkAj

You can send money to that address if you wish using sites like https://www.coinbase.com/ which are the most reputable Bitcoin exchange.

You can also buy Bitcoins using Paypal here: https://localbitcoins.com/buy-bitcoins-online/paypal/ which may be the preferred method for most people as it requires no ID or signups.

So what do you get for donating Bitcoin? What perks!, I hear you say? – Well nothing. You get absolutely nothing. No perks, no special names, no items, nothing. It’s the purest form of donation, this way you don’t feel obligated to donate to get an advantage over other players and our server doesn’t change in any form.

Only donate if you really want to and feel that the server is fun enough to warrant you spending your hard earned money on it. For anyone that decides to donate, thank you very much!

Thanks for reading 🙂

Minecraft 1.9 and RenMX

Posted by on Nov 13, 2015 |

Quite a few of you have been asking me if and when we’ll be updating to Minecraft v1.9 so I thought I’d just make a post to explain exactly what will be happening.

Firstly, we will be updating to 1.9 just as we have updated to every single Minecraft release since the server began 5 years ago.

We will be striving to update as soon as we are able which means after Mojang release 1.9 and after Spigot release v1.9 of the Spigot server software. It looks as if 1.9 will be released by Mojang in about a month from now and Spigot have already been working to get their 1.9 release ready using the current snapshots as a path to the final release.

The Spigot team seem confident they’ll have a working server targeting 1.9 by the official release date or soon afterwards.

As with any major release like 1.9 there will be some compatibility issues, we have a test server setup to test all versions of Minecraft to make sure all our plugins and custom software (Like our Shop, Auctions, Cards etc) function correctly and can be updated in the event they don’t work. This may cause a slight delay in us updating to 1.9 but rest assured we will update everything as soon as possible.

With major updates like this it is very important that we take our time and do things properly, updating the server software to a major new version also introduces major new bugs and these must be discovered quickly and patched. I’m confident we’ll be running 1.9 within a month after its official release date if not sooner.

November Firework Display Contest!

Posted by on Nov 7, 2015 |

It’s the time of year when the nights are longer, the dark sets in sooner and the sky is filled with the pretty, sparkly colours of fireworks.

Well RenMX is no exception!

We want to see what you creative bunch can come up with for a truly stunning fireworks display. Think about the setup of your plot, your firework colours, how and when they are set off etc.

Rules:
1. All builds must stay within the plot boundaries.
2. No obscene or inappropriate builds (Keep it clean folks)
3. NO redstone clocks without on/off switches.
4. No copying others builds.

Don’t forget to lock your dispensers & maybe even lock or hide the way that you turn on your display to avoid it being all fired out by the time judging comes around!

Head to /warp contest and pick your plot and get building! Good luck everyone!

Contest runs from 11/06/2015. Last day to work on entries is 11/20/2015. Judging will be that weekend!
