Mojang has announced that Minecraft version 1.12 will be released this friday. So lets just do a quick FAQ.
Will you be updating to v1.12?
Yes we will.
When we upgrade will the server map be wiped?
No, we never wipe the map. We have had the same map since April 2012 and there is no reason for us to wipe it. We will be increasing the map border radius by 1,000 blocks though so you will have even more land to explore.
When will you be updating?
We do not know yet, we have to wait for the server software to become available and then we must test all of our plugins to make sure they work and either fix the ones that don’t work or find / create replacements.
Can we still play on RENMX after v1.12 comes out?
Yes, simply set your game to use version 1.11.2 in the official minecraft launcher and you’ll be able to connect to our servers like always. There will be a news post made once we have upgraded to v1.12.
Seriously though, how long is it going to take to upgrade to v1.12?
We really do not know. It all depends on what breaks and how difficult it is to fix what breaks. We will begin testing immediately upon 1.12’s release and will try to be upgraded as soon as possible.

Today I have written and launched a new feature which I am calling Command Assist. It’s a really simple feature that I’m sure will improve all of your lives when playing on our server.
Put simply it’s an in-game searching system for commands. If you need to know how to kick a player from your town you just type /help kick or /help town. If you need to know how to bet you can type /help bet as I did in the screenshot below.
It works by searching for what you’ve specified in both the command itself and the explanation text accompanying the command meaning you can be pretty liberal with your search query and get back a relevant command.
It supports both user commands and staff commands, only staff will see commands relevant to their staff rank of course. It also features the ability to click on any command in the search results to have it inputted directly into your chat bar.
This is a new feature so I’m sure some of the commands will need to be re-written or generalised so they come up better within the Command Assist feature.
I hope you all like the new feature I’m sure it will save many of us a lot of time.
This months Champion Hall applications are now open. You can apply on our forums within the thread here. It also contains all the rules so click through to find out how to apply!
Almost a year ago <3 Ricksterm built an Arena at spawn (/warp arena) which we intended to program many games into. However as with many big projects it got sidelined while we concentrated on other parts of the server like the introduction of the TLS playable content, Warehouse and rewrite of our Admin Control Panel.
But I’m pleased to announce the latest version of the Arena. This has been a group effort between <3 iNook, <3 Ricksterm and <3 Pri to build multiple games into the Arena at spawn. It has taken a lot of time and effort but it’s ready and this is only the start.
We’ve launched it with three game modes across 8 maps. That’s PVP with 6 maps alongside Spleef and TNT Run with 1 map each. Below is a little slide show showing these first launch maps.
This new arena platform has many other game types planned these are just the three launch titles. We have the capacity to make any number of games and maps for each game type.
This new upgraded arena does have a lot of custom logic built in with no player setup needed beyond choosing which game to play.
Just click one button and the chosen game begins, players outside of the Arena are then invited to join with a single click. We’ve even added a simple opt-out button for players who do not want to be bombarded with Arena game requests.
The Arena is so smart that it even enables your personal PVP mode setting when you enter a PVP game and re-enables your fly mode after the game you’re playing completes (only if you have the ability to fly of course!) making it much faster to accept an invite to a game without needing to type any commands.
As noted at the start to get to the arena simply type /warp arena we hope you all have a great time playing in the new Arena, we’re fully committed to adding more game modes and more maps over the next several months.
