We utilize towny protection and Hawkeye logging/rollback features hand-in hand to prevent and rollback griefing wherever it happens within minutes. Players receive a payday of in-game currency (dollars) depending on how much they are logged in throughout the day. This currency can then be traded to our server shop for items, or to other players, or spent in the Casino if you wish. We also have a customized mob arena which can reward you items and currency. Our maps are generated using LARGE biomes.
We aren't crazy strict about how you play or what you chat about (within reason) but we do have a few rules. Please CLICK HERE to see a full list of our rules.
We do not use a whitelist. We utilize a greylist-ish system. Players who join our server will find themselves in a quick tutorial about how to best utilize our plugins to benefit themselves in the survival world, and are then given access to our Greylist world. They are free to amass resources and mcMMO experience and such, and once they have done so for one hour of in-game play time they will be granted access to our Survival world. The survival world is significantly larger, and does not get regenerated - whereas the Greylist/FFA/Anarchy world is regenerated regularly.
We have at our disposal also a Skylands world, where everything is floating in the air! To get to it, players must build up above 253 in the survival world, and if you fall out of the Skylands world, you are safely brought back to the survival world; the two worlds are linked in this way
We are also hard at work in developing an adventure world (utilizing the adventure game mode) which will be opening soon. To top it all off - we have an RPG world currently under construction and testing. This world will heavily utilize a class system, much like common RPG's do. There will also be custom questing features. Players can expect that once testing and such is complete, these worlds will also be open for play.
Our server hardware is among the best. We are hosted on a dedicated server through Nuclear Fallout. If you know anything about dedicated server hosting, you know they are one of the very best of the best.
Our server is currently capped at 50 players, until we can load test the hardware with the current plugin and multi-world setup. We expect that the hardware can handle much more, and will likely be increasing the cap to 75 or 100 once we've seen some more load-tested data.

Server looks quite nice - even the grey wolrd idea is a bit spooky I think, but hey - that's 1 hour.
The only real critical part is that you get lot's of stuff for free, like a few diamonds for just voting so it may becomes creative mode fast.
Haha, I hear you about the free stuff. Thanks for the feedback. We'll be adjusting our voting rewards and such to be a little more in line with our vision.
Your favorite part of minecraft: My Favourite part of minecraft is probably building cliff overhangs and
high-tech military bases in mountains. I Also enjoy making redstone contraptions, whether somebody else makes them, or its my own unique recipe!
What biome you like to build in the most: EXTREME HILLS BIOME!!!! Because of the reasons above ^-^ and cus they look a very nicee, and swamps simply because of the new 1.4 witch huts, swamps at night, and so forth
Hope You Enjoy my Choices :3
GREAT SERVER!!!!! I LIVE IN A SWAMP BIOME!!!!! >:3
Well, looks like our population is growing quite nicely. Don't forget about our contest folks (at the bottom of my original post) you could win a free donator perk! Also, please keep in mind that our server automatically restarts every 6 hours to keep the server healthy and running with zero lag. Our community is growing very nicely. Check out some pics of a new resident's up and coming town:
Nice servers, but they don't like mcmmo and the advanced "cooblestone"-generator (what is absolutly okay).
So before you use some effectiv method better ask if it is allowed.
This is really no offense, just an information.
Unfortunately, we don't consider that okay at all. We consider that glitching - and here's why.
You weren't using the machine to generate cobblestone. You were using it to duplicate diamonds. Not only did this artificially inflate your mcMMO rankings (which lead to faster and easier exploiting) but it also would have lead to inflating our economy, and certainly your inventory. When you were banned from our server, you had over 10 stacks of diamonds, and 8 stacks of diamond ore (and the server just opened 3 days ago).
So, let this be a lesson and a warning to all future players - we do NOT allow this type of glitching of the game to gain an advantage over other players, and you will be banned for it.
We're sorry you couldn't play with us in a legit manner, DeadMansHorror, but it's clearly stated in our rules that we do not allow glitching of any sort. You're welcome to consult the rules list and see for yourself @ www.ironshovel.com.
It stated in your rules, that you do not allow "unfair advantages". I didn't create any of those, everyone was able to build that machine and as it was explained in the official mcmmo-wiki for some weeks I can't consider it glitching or even cheating. (I just saw it isn't anymore)
But that's a definition of course. You could also say building an automated mob-farm is glitching, you could say building a cobblestone generator is glitching. Or growing large jungle tree-farms to raise your lumber-skill to hell maybe?
In my PERSONAL opinion every server should accept any known (!!!) feature (or in your matter maybe bug?) of an addon and should not use it if you don't like it. That's the only reasonable way to deal with a programm. Otherwise you will allways have to think about what feature is "legit" and which isn't, which leeds to an enourmous size of rules.
Btw.: You are the first (of approximatly 10) servers with mcmmo I played on who doesn't see this as a feature.
Seems the creators of mcMMO disagree with your PERSONAL definition of glitching, as they clearly define this as a glitch and an exploit, and will be patching it out in future commits. I recommend you do more homework before trying to cry wolf next time.
EDIT:: Furthermore, for clarity sake - I suggest you re-read our rules page. I'll quote a small portion of it here, for your benefit... I'll bold the important part so you'll be able to see it easily.
Do not harass staff for help, use /helpop if you need help from staff.
Do not use any client side hacks, mods or texture packs to item hack, speed hack, xray or any other client modification to give you an unfair advantage above other players. Using glitches to generate items, duplicate items, or farm mcMMO skill points will earn you a ban on sight. Just don't even try.
Do not build on another person’s chests to prevent them from accessing them.
English isn't my first language, so it's hard to tell you what I think of it. Btw. the dev-section wasn't search by me - why should I? .
My easy thought is, that admins need to act on a form of axioms, so everyone can exactly know how an admin will react in every situation.
The axiom you are at now seems to be "searching the internet for official sides and anything quoted as bugs or glitches there is a reason for ban."
That would be an axiom which is absolutly okay, I will not play on such a server as I am not going to search the whole internet for glitches etc. before I take any action. With this method being explained in the wiki everything was absolutly clear for me.
The quoted part is . A smoth-stone-generator fits to this for example as you interprete it now. That's why I interpreted it in a form of "if you dublicate items by lagging the server or something like that it's a problem with us". Another example: The tree-farming method still in the mcmmo-wiki isn't glitch, is it? You do farm mcMMO skill faster then farming single trees only, so what's it?
That's the easy problem I see with your way of thinking. I have absolutly no problem with the ban - everyone can select his players on his own, I just wanted to inform other players thinking in the same way then me to not join the community, as it takes serveral hours before you can use this farming method, so one would waste several hours on the server with a different way of thinking.
I hope it's clear to you now. Absolutly no offense again and I don't want to cry - I wouldn't rejoin if I would be able to with the reasons above. It's just like you are an apple and I like potatoes.
Btw.: You don't need to quote my posts, I will not change them .
Doesn't change the fact that you're a complete moron, potatoes have less of a personality than apples anyways.
We'll be having a maintenance on 11/23 @ 7pm CST to do some backing up and updating of plugins and such. At that time, we'll also be adjusting the difficulty of the server (if the poll on our forums warrants it). At the moment, it looks like the community would rather play on medium than on hard - so we'll likely be changing to that.
In addition, we'll be closing our "grand opening contest" This coming sunday, 11/25 at 11:59 pm CST.
You may respond in this thread with the format listed in my original post for a chance to win a free random donor perk. You can view the entire list of perks on our forums. We will randomly pick a winner next week, and randomly choose a donor perk to give them.
Our maintenance was completed successfully a half an hour ahead of schedule, and our server is up and running with all the latest updates
We've also implemented changes to the difficulty of the survival world from HARD to MEDIUM based on community feedback, and have implemented a death chest plugin to help players recover their items after death, instead of losing them to nearby mobs (or having creepers explode them)
Our "grand opening contest" will be closing this coming sunday 11/24 at 11:59pm CST, so get your entry in soon!!!
We just added some cool new plugins to add some more depth and fun to the game!
Mobs will now rarely drop some very cool enchanted armor/weapons/items. It's diablo-style drops. While very rare, they are extremely useful and fun
Additionally, we've added the ability to use something called a lava furnace, which is a furnace similar to the "induction furnace" of Tekkit, where you get increased cooking speed and you can queue items for cooking, instead of having to manually load them.
We've opened a new world for play for our members! It's a Skylands world!
There is no ground, everything is floating islands!
We've also integrated it rather nicely with our existing worlds. In order to reach it, you need to build (or fly) up to a height of 256, and you will then be carried to the safety of the Skylands spawn area. From there, you can go explore this amazing new world.
We have taken the liberty of generating around 40% of the world for you and have left the rest of the exploring up to our members!You will also find some exciting new things in this world! Utilizing our DiabloDrops plugin, we've generated a lot of small "temples" scattered all across the skyworld with chests inside that have DD in them! Explore, find these chests, and become as powerful as a god with your new gear! (Donators, please refrain from flying around the world and looting every single chest. If we find one of you whose made it their sole purpose in life to steal all the drops, we'll just take them from you, so be kind and leave some for everyone!)
We've also updated our voting interface, so you'll be able to vote while offline, and still get your items and money when you next login, (instead of the listener only working if your character was online.)
Please understand, if the server is offline and you vote, it will not work - so please be sure you're not voting while the server is offline.
We hope you enjoy the new world, and let us know in our suggestions forum if you have any ideas to improve the server
