DrShiny here! I'm back and building amazing, fun, and fair servers yet again!
I have officially reopened Mine-Hub. We are starting out the way Mine-Hub began all those years ago, with a top-notch towny server!
This Brand New Towny server features 2 main worlds: The Cove
Map never resets.
All land is protected.
Building only allowed in towns.
Join someone else's town...
..or be mayor of your own town.
Open shops to sell items to other players.
Does reset every week. No protection from building, destroying, mining, or PVP. Go out and collect resources and earn money. Be careful, anything goes out in the wild waste.
The IP IS: play.Mine-Hub.net
2 Member ranks.
5 Donor ranks.
4 Different tiers of Mystery Crates
Vote for keys!
Join today for a new server to call your minecraft home!
Just a quick bump to say that this server is very neat, professionally run by an experienced server owner who has big plans, and as of this post it's only a few days old! The world is nearly untouched still as the finishing touches are put on the server. Come join now and get ahead of the crowd!!
There are some really neat concepts here. The gold-based economy is a challenge that rewards you for mining and exploring, the core concepts of Minecraft (along with building, of course). This is a refreshing change from most economy servers whose economies can be manipulated with mob grinders and villager trades---those won't help you succeed here.
All in all--this is a good place to call home if you want to test your towny/economy skills on a fresh server.
I have just introduced Mystery Crates to Award people for voting on server lists:
Here is a prize table:
Voter Chestplate <- 2%
Voter Helmet <- 2%
Voter Leggings <- 2%
Voter Boots <- 2%
Voter Sword <- 2%
Voter Axe <- 5%
Voter Pick <- 5%
Voter Shovel <- 5%
$100 <- 25%
$200 <- 15%
$500 <- 5%
$1,000 <- 1%
$10,000 <- 0.1%
Stack of Cobble <- 8.9%
5 Gold Apples <- 10%
Iron Crate key <- 1%
Use /Fly for 25h <- 2%
32 Xp Bottles <- 2%
Villager Egg <- 2%
These prizes are meant to make voting worth it even if you get the smallest prizes.
$100, The most likely prize, is the equivalent of mining 10 gold ingots.
I feel this is a balanced trade-off for the minimum prize.
The other rarer prizes will make voting even more worth it.
Voting strongly supports your server and is rewarded generously at Mine-Hub.
I will soon work to add the feature that voting for the server for the first time adds the reward of promoting you to a new rank.
That rank (Elder) will be required to create your own town.
Users who never vote may still join the towns of others.
It will never cost you money to vote for Mine-Hub, and so it will also always be free to participate in the full town economy experience as mayor of your own town. Paid ranks will give mostly cosmetic and convenience perks.
Lastly, I like this forum thread as a place to store my change log, plans, and server discussion at least until the Mine-Hub.net website goes live.
I will continue to monitor this forum for questions and suggestions.
1. Voting is complete and functional.
Using /Vote will now show you a list of 5 websites where you can vote for Mine-Hub once every 24Hrs.
Every vote will award you with a key to the vote tier mystery crate.
2. Now voting for Mine-Hub 10 times will automatically promote you to the 2nd rank of Elder.
Elder will now be the rank with permission to create a new town with /t new <townname>
So to explain these changes...
We want voting to be an easy and free way to contribute to the server, and beneficial enough to make it a daily habit for server members, (even those who would never think of donating money to the server). That's why we are asking for at least 10 votes before allowing town creation. This provides a gateway, where you must show a minimum amount of support for the server over multiple days before you are permitted to enjoy the full experience. We believe this will greatly improve the overall quality of towns, weeding out bad players from being able to create towns immediately upon first logging in.
We have also added an auctions plugin. Using /ah help, you may now find instructions for auctioning items to other players. Each rank progressively adds the ability to auction more items simultaneously. Auctions are a great addition to an economy server like Mine-Hub because they allow a safe method of buying and selling complex or rare items which are very valuable.
We believe these changes will cause members to become more engaged with server promotion, and increase the overall fun factor of collecting and trading rare items.
Several big updates to tell you about.
Basic server website is live, but not yet setup. Url = Mine-Hub.Enjin.com
The website can now successfully process donations, and give rewards in-game automatically.
/buy can now be used to see possible donation rewards, and gives links to the webstore.
Paypal Checkout has been setup as the preferred method for accepting donations.
5 Donor ranks have been setup, and are awarded for cumulative rank donations.
Separate from rank donations, you can make small donations to be awarded keys to 3 different mystery crates.
4 tiers of Mystery crates are now configured and complete.
These changes should greatly improve server involvement, and advertising efficiency.
I will monitor and adjust awards and prices as needed to balance.
It you have suggestions for donation rewards please leave them here.
This update Concludes the core Game-play components.
I will now enter a phase for awhile focused more on debugging, beautification, Server Advertising, Community growth, and management.
I have made it possible to build a house on a plot, and then to sell that plot for a profit!
I have also put a lot of effort into creating detailed tutorial boards. and server info.
We have seen several new members coming on consistently. I am slowly going to turn the focus onto advertising.
I can use any advertising help available. Players who succeed at getting more players onto the server will be favored for staff promotions.
More plots have been put up for sale at cape cove!
I have just selected 3 new helpers for the server who are all great members of the community. I know they will help grow and develop the server into a great place to be. I will select more as server grows, and eventually will allow members to nominate and vote on staff appointments. The towns have been growing and its exciting to see where we go next!
Soon I'll be adding to the website, and also doing a series of instructional server videos on youtube.
See you soon!
Quick update! I have added Mcmmo Premium.
I paid $15.00 for the plugin, but overall I think its worth it, and makes grinding a bit more fun and rewarding.
Additionally, leveling up your ranks gives you another thing to compete in.
