Just a quick note, v1.12.2 of Minecraft was released by Mojang today. We have updated our server to support both the older v1.12.1 and the newer v1.12.2 game versions at the same time so you can choose to update your game client at your convenience.
As some of you are probably aware on the 26th of September our Minecraft server will be 7 years old. And we thought what better way to celebrate it than with a knock-out build contest where you get to create something for our spawn.
In this contest we want you to build something that will fit in with our spawn, something that will cement your legacy in RENMX history. We’ve held only a few contests like these over the past seven years so this is a very exclusive opportunity.
And since it will be our 7th Birthday when this contest ends we’re going all out on prizes offering our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners one game each from six epic games.
To enter simply head on over to /warp contest get yourself a plot by pushing the button on the right of the contest board and build your best idea for our spawn. – It can be a building, garden, statue or anything you think will fit with the spawn and win you 1st place!
The games we’re offering to be won are Saints Row: The Third, Goat Simulator, Clustertruck, I am Bread, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Bioshock 2
Saints Row and Bioshock 2 are Windows only while Goat Simulator, Clustertruck, I am Bread, and Batman: Arkham Asylum are Windows and Mac compatible.
This contest runs from September 15th to September 25th and is open to all players to participate in on our Survival server.
Full Prize List
- 1st place: R10,000 – Gold Supporter – First choice of a single game from the six available.
- 2nd place: R5,000 – Supporter – Second choice of a single game from the five available.
- 3rd place: R2,500 – The final remaining game from the four available.
We hope you all have fun and remember this contest ends on September 25th!

Apolagies for the long downtime, we did hit a few snags while cloning our drives (booting issues) which meant the update took five hours instead of the intended 1-2 hours.
However the good news is the upgrade is complete, we’re now humming along on our new faster and higher capacity SSD storage. We’ve already moved our MySQL databases over to the new SSD storage and well .. logblock is screaming fast. More than 500x faster.
We also took this opportunity to update all our software. The operating system, Java, Spigot and Bungeecord were all updated to their latest versions so we shouldn’t need another maintenance window for quite some time.
Thank you for your patience and happy gaming.
As of this post our servers are offline while we perform an SSD upgrade. We’ve moving from our current 128GB and 120GB SSD drives to 512GB and 256GB SSD’s.
Old: Corsair Neutron 120GB + Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
New: 512GB and 256GB Samsung 850 Pro’s.
The server should remain down for around an hour to two hours. Thank you for your patience.
