Hey Everyone, I just wanted to let you all know about New Beginnings!
This is a Vanilla+ SMP server that myself and my friend have been running for just over 6 months now. This server aims to get everyone together to have a great time playing Minecraft! This server is community ran, meaning everyone has a say on what gets added or removed from this server!
This server is currently whitelisted, this is to help with greifing/hacking etc and we tend to accept most applications as we would love to have are community grow and have fun with us! We are currently a very small and friendly community with around 15 active players not including myself and my friend with 140+ unique players that have joined the server within the few weeks it has been live.
We have a few plugins on our server that enhances the overall expirence but DOES NOT affect the Vanilla gameplay aspect of our server. Some of these plugins are to help us against people using hacked clients, griefing and purely to make the server fun overall to play on.
OpenInv (For Admin use only, to find stolen items)
We also have custom made plugins for our server that were not avaliable else where, these were made by our very own mod of the server @MJRLegends. These plugins allow us to make custom challenges for the players to complete to earn coins. These coins can used to buy cosmetic items (Items that do not affect vanilla gameplay and do NOT give an advantage to players), during our seasonal events, more on those later.
Since Halloween has just passed, we decided to host our first seasonal event which lasts for the whole month leading up to Halloween. We are planning on hosting several of these leading up to Christmas and other holidays we choose.
We decided there should be something for players that are more active than others to be able to work towards. We've come up with some new items that you can only obtain when the certain seasonal event is happening, these new and exclusive items however does not effect the overall vanilla gameplay that our server is based around. These new items can only be bought with the new currency that has been introduced with our own custom plugin.
New Custom Plugin
For this first seasonal event, MJRLegends created our own plugin that is exclusive to our server, with this enabled players can create daily/weekly challenges to gain our new currency which then can be used to purchase said seasonal items.
Seasonal Building Areas
During different holidays we provide a building area so that players can go and build creative stuctures, buildings, redstone builds and what ever they want based on the current theme. So far we have done this for Halloween. (Here are some screenshots below of the area when the Halloween Seasonal Event ended).
Christmas Seasonal Event Just Started!
New players will be joined just in time for our next Seasonal Event which is now themed 'Christmas'. Which will be active till the end of December. We would love for new players to join in and get creative within the Christmas building area of our server.
Christmas Themed Cosmetic Items
Within the next couple of weeks we are adding some new items for people to buy using their challenge coins as talked about earlier. Some of these include
Cosmetic Heads (Players can wear these and use them to decorate their builds)
Prefixes (We also offer Name Tags that will show in chat, (This is a new item launched for this Seasonal Event))
Custom Made Rewards (Including partical effects and awesome abilities, DOES NOT AFFECT GAMEPLAY)
Here are some screenshots of some of the builds our community has made.
Rules of the Server
We do not have many rules as we want our community to do and have as much fun as possible there are some that we are very serious about, just use common sense and you should be fine!
Do not hack/use Xray (No warnings will be given for this)
No Griefing (No warnings will be given for this)
Do not steal from other players. (We will just return the stolen items to the player, if not return beforehand)
Be friendly towards each other.
No duping, except tnt duping and dragon egg duping and 0 tick crop farms
You are allowed to build anywhere you want, just don't build near to where a player has already setup camp.
Alt accounts are allowed but only to be used in spectator mode, your account must be approved by myself or MJR. (You must be a very trusted player on our server and are only used to get cool sky views of builds and catch people hacking/greifing)
We do accept most applications purely because we want our community to grow and to become bigger and better! There is a very simple application process (Which will only take you a couple of mintues!) as our server is whitelisted, This is because we take greifing and hacking very seriously and I hope you can appreciate that.
