Map Border Expanded

Since we’ve now updated to v1.12 of the game we have also expanded our map size by 1,000 blocks which is something we do each major update.

We hope you all have lots of fun exploring the new areas. Perhaps you’ll find some hidden mansions!

Apologies for downtime

Posted by on 9:53 am in Minecraft | 0 comments

The server as of this post is back online. It was down for 8 hours due to an internet fault. It went offline sometime around 1:40am last night and I was able to bring it back online around 9:45am this morning.

The server itself is completely fine, it was just an internet issue caused by our service provider.

Minor updates

Posted by on 9:30 am in Minecraft | 0 comments

I have three minor updates to talk with you today.

We now support both 1.11.2 and 1.12 clients on our server

Please note this does NOT mean we have updated to 1.12 it simply means we will be allowing players who have upgraded their game client to v1.12 to connect to our server which will still be running version 1.11.2.

We still fully intend to update to v1.12 (for realsies) as soon as we’re able to do so but until then this will be a stop-gap measure allowing players who’ve already upgraded their game to continue to play.

We have added a new current events message to our login news system

When you login to our game you may have seen that recent posts from our home page are automatically displayed to you. We have expanded on this by now also displaying any current events we are holding beneath these news messages.

So for example right now we’re holding a DC Comics Build Contest and so when you login you will be notified of that.

This feature was requested by <3 iNook.

We have added a calculator to the game

A new command /calc or /calculator has been added which allows you to do mathematical equations in-game to assist you with building. It does support some complex math functions but also all of the basics. For example you can do /calc 2+2 to get the answer which is 4. But you can also do more complicated things like /calc 2+2/5*10 and still get a correct answer too.

We know that many of you like to meticulously plan out your builds and being able to quickly multiply and divide is very handy.

This feature was requested by <3 ModernPromethea

That’s all for this update, happy crafting.

New Arena Gamemode!

Posted by on 8:25 pm in Minecraft | 0 comments

New Arena Gamemode!

Today we’re introducing a new game mode to the Arena (/warp arena) we introduced a couple of weeks ago. It’s a Mob Wave Survival mode with single and multiplayer support featuring 20 waves of intense action.

At every five waves you’ll have the opportunity to cash out some rewards (xp, money) and leave the arena or stay and fight on for the ultimate prize, a unique card. If you die before cashing out or beating the Mob Arena’s final boss then you leave with nothing.

The new Mob Arena mode features many unique mobs created by <3 iNook who is also the creator of the Arena game code that all of the games made so far use.

Please mail iNook if you discover any bugs with the new Mob Arena or any of the other Arena games. And yes that is the card you’ll receive for beating this new Arena game mode but we’re not going to tell you exactly what it does just yet.

Smelly Barry Announcement

Smelly Barry Announcement

Seen as the first 10 Black Market Pickaxes sold out so quickly I’ve decided to make a further five pickaxes available.

Sure half the sweat shop workers have died making the first 10 but with half the work force we can make half as many more pickaxes. Simple math!

This is it though once these are sold they’re all gone so get em while you can. Oh and my next shipment of illicit goods will be coming in soon so look out for that!

Smelly Barry’s Black Market Pickaxe now on sale!

Smelly Barry’s Black Market Pickaxe now on sale!

Today we’re introducing a new .. ahem knock off item by Smelly Barry and his Sweat Shop. It’s a .. well lets have Smelly Barry explain.

 


Quite simple really, Hephaetus security aint’ all its cracked up to be. We snuck in there, photocopied the designs and now we’re releasing improved versions with mending.

But we don’t need no obsidian or diamonds, just cold hard cash thank you very much. I mean we are plundering pirates after all!


 

Well we don’t condone his methods but we cannot argue with the results, and due to some contractual obligations we are required to offer Smelly Barry a sell area pride and place on our Admin Shop which is exactly what we have done.

You can purchase your own Black Market Pickaxe here on our admin shop. But be quick he’s only making ten of them.
