Server Plans for 2019 & Votes

Hello Miners,

Well 2019 is now upon us, and the server seems to have come to standstill. Im hoping to change that in the coming weeks. Ive been taking a few months break from minecraft, and it shows. Ive been working on some website dev projects that are not related to MinersPlay. However thats not what this post is about.

New Entrance to the Public Skeleton Farm at Spawn. Found under the arena.

I’m trying to reboot the server to get ready for 1.14. Now you may have noticed that there has been alack of new players or players at all. MinersPlay has fallen between the cracks. I talked to Anna about this a few days ago, she said do what you feels right. Ive thought about this for awhile now. I plan on advertising the server once again, such as putting a sponsored slot on the mc-market site. What this means is we will see an influx of players. So far this year nothing has been happening. Id like to do more events as a group.I have so many ideas, and im sure you all do too. I may add an events server down the road for custom gamemodes, UHC, or other events.

Voting:

You can not vote on the server, each vote gives you 1 emerald and 50 bonus claim blocks. I may change the rewards down the road, but hey at least its start. To get started just /vote in the chat and you will see this show up the the chat:

You will need to click one of the 7 links to vote. You can gain up to 350 bonus claim blocks a day. Normally you gain 100 for every hour of playtime on the server, so this is a good boost.

If you have any ideas, let me know here. I may add more staff if the server gains more players.

Updates & Season 2

Hi Miners,

We wanted to update you guys on whats been going on around the server. First of all we want to showcase the new server cinematic. We feature all sorts of builds in this video. Unfortunately we ended up missing a few, such as washwithcare’s base and more. However we hope that you like the video:

Now that brings us to the next part, unfortunately with the way 1.13 generates worlds and such its not possible to keep the world. 1.13 changes the world generation with new biomes, new algorithms. So the staff and I have talked it over and feel its right to reset the world. I know at this point im eating my own words, when I originally setup the server I said I was never planning on a reset in the near future. Hopefully season 2 will be around alot longer than 8 months.

New Map Ideas:

We want the new map to have all the new biomes, and much more. Thats why a custom 16k x 16k map is being designed as we speak. This map will have the custom biomes, and non vanilla terrain that everyone has come to love. But to make the map even better we want your feedback on what should be added. So far this is what is planning on being added.

  • Custom Villages
  • Custom Woodland Mansions
  • Giant Cavens
  • Great Looking Spawn

These are just some of the ideas that the staff have come up with. If you have any ideas for the new map, use the #new-map channel on discord. If you have any other questions let me know on Discord.
