4.) More Mobheads - All mobs rarely drop their mobhead, very fun to collect them all!
5.) Silktouch Spawners - Spawners can be picked up using a DIAMOND silktouch pickaxe!
6.) Server Sleep - Only 1 online player needs to sleep in a bed to turn night to day.
7.) Universal Dying - can dye using mixed colors of glass, wool, or terracotta (doesn't have to be all plain glass, white wool, or hardened terracotta).
8.) VillagerNames - All villagers spawn with a random name!
9.) Woodcutter - Stonecutter now gives all the options for wood as it does for stone!
10.) Novemia Custom Recipes - Added a few recipes at player requests. For example: Cook obsidian in a furnace to get glowstones, can craft wool back into string, can craft end portal frames using 8 obsidian with a diamond in the center.
- Novemia Server has started back in November of 2015. Has been consistantly around since then, only a total of like 7 mapwipes in that time. Usually only wipe the map in November or when a major update requires a mapwipe.
-Novemia has always been a PvE , VeryVanilla, survival server. Everything is done in normal survival mode, nothing is ever built in creative mode (not even the worldspawn!).
-Currently the community is sparse at best ----Which I'm begging all that read this to help me fix!
-Novemia server will , at the very least, be up for a few more years, even if sparse or no players, simply because I love minecraft and playing it off/on. Moreso, when there are a few other playing also!
PLEASE help me rebuild the community on Novemia ! I miss the days when we were a very vibrant community with tons and tons of nice players! Nowadays it is very tough to find players that stick around in minecraft very long, is a relatively old game, and tons of other games out there
Please join Novemia, you will see that I will work hard in rebuilding our community!
Keep it Very Vanilla, Whitelist, PvE, Survival. I'd like to see us be a semi-rp community. Where players each have their own build, we connect builds either thru a nether shortcut and roads in the nether, or even overworld roads/rails. We come together and build a really nice worldspawn (in survival mode OF COURSE!). Then we work on a Shoptown,( either at spawn or wherever everyone prefers it to be). In Shoptown, everyone builds their own shop, and sells a few types of blocks to other players. For example, my last shop sold: mossy cobble, mossy stone, endstone, nether bricks and red netherbricks, and netherwart blocks! Players get to choose what they sell, and just ask they try not to compete with others, selling same items, unless other person isn't active or we get that many players, that it is ok to have competition.
I really like to chat with other players on the server in Discord voicechat, just makes it more fun and brings people closer together and some very interesting conversations develop!
We have set up a location for Shoptown, the coords are listed in discord.
The idea is for each person , that wants to, to build a shop and sell stuff. For example, last shop I had, I sold netherbricks, red netherbricks, mossy cobble, mossy stone, and End stone. I had chests full of stacks of those items, and a sign saying 1 diamond per stack. When someone bought a stack, they'd just replace a stack with 1 diamond. Used the honor system, and never had any issues, was fun!
Original forum post might be a couple weeks old, but we are still recruiting/rebuilding our playerbase, if you want a good solid server with a nice community, to spend you survival , (mostly vanilla), minecraft time, please give us a try! You just might finally find a server that is good for you!
With 1.16 snapshots coming out, here is our plan for 1.16.
Once the snapshots get to pre-release and are stable, with only minor bugs, we'll probably then go to pre-release snapshots for the server, and ONLY reset the nether map. The overworld shouldn't be affected much by the 1.16 update. I will give warning before resetting the nether, so players can remove chests or anything they want from the existing nether.
When choosing items to sell in your shop, please try to choose items that no one else is selling, at least till Shoptown really gets going, that way we have a nice variety of things to buy in Shoptown and makes it more useful
Just an update regarding upgrading server...1.16 snapshot 20w07 is still too unstable to put on server : bugs with villagers not saving, among other gamebreaking issues. Seems they are making fast progress, shouldn't be too long till it is stable!
We tried out the datapack Dynamic Saplings, removed it, was more of a pain than it was worth. Easier to just pick up saplings and plant them yourself, instead of having them randomly plant themselves and then have to cut down more trees than you intended
