New Spawn

New Spawn!

Spawn had a rough transition from 1.13 to 1.14, with a lot of shops getting destroyed. To celebrate the final transition to 1.14.2, we are packing up and moving away!

The new spawn is northwest of the old one, on a large continent of forests and plains. As part of the transition, you can have your old shop moved to the new spawn – just tell us where the old one is and where the new one should go!

You can find the backup of spawn before the 1.14 transition at /warp backup, or to the more recent version at /warp oldspawn to find your old build. Of course, we highly encourage you to build from scratch to celebrate the new city!

Note: you can only build 60 blocks away from the spawn point. Any close is reserved for public builds!

Mother’s Day Event

Mother’s Day is coming up, and what better gift than flowers?

Happy hunting!

Vanilla Flavor Blast!

1.14 is here, and we can’t want to jump in! For the next week, we’re getting back to the basics and giving pure vanilla gameplay. No plugins, no /back, just classic Minecraft!

We will get the plugins back as soon as Spigot is stable, but in the meantime have fun connecting with your Minecraft roots!

April Treasure Hunt!

From the start of the server, there has been a forbidden region north of Spawn walled off by a mysterious barrier:

The barrier has just disappeared, revealing a treasure hunt for the top 17 miners from the March Mining Madness event!

If you were in the top 17 miners (aegisjester – The_Real_Lego), visit the mail room at Spawn – you will find your treasure map leading you to your event reward! WARNING: your “X” will disappear when you get close to your site, so remember it well!

Happy digging!

March Mining Madness!

Our March event focuses on mining! Go figure! We are currently working on a new Wither Skeleton Farm in the Nether, which requires a HUGE excavation.

To get things moving along, we are offering up 4x mining XP for Netherrack for the month of March. If you want to get in on the action, break out your fanciest pickaxe, and head to the “Wither Dig” warp at spawn to get in on the action! This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the SkillSwap to build levels on other skills too!

For the duration of the event, the tab scoreboard will also keep a tally of how much Netherrack you’ve mined – so keep it up!

Event Details

Dates: March 2 – March 31 2019

Details: Earn 4x MCMMO mining XP from Netherrack. Digging at the Wither Farm excavation site is encouraged. You can find a warp to the Dig Site near the Skyblock warp at Spawn.

Valentine’s Event!

Love is in the air with the MinecraftLovers Valentine’s Event!

From Feb 12 – 28, all players get 4x alchemy XP – so get out those brewing stands and whip up some potions!

Also during this event, you can temporary craft new Love Potions!

Love Potion Details

Love Potions will grant the drinker Absorption, Health Boost, and Damage Resist. However, since you become smitten on drinking, you also get Weakness, unable to do much damage in combat!

To brew a Love Potion, follow these steps:

  • Start with a Water Bottle, and add Chorus Fruit to make Chorus Juice
  • Add a Fermented Spider Eye to brew up some Chorus Wine
  • Mix in a Rose Bush to get Rose Wine
  • Sprinkle in some Cocoa Seeds to get your final Love Potion

 

Keep in mind that with these special potions, the brewing stand won’t show the brewing progress (but it will still brew in the normal time). Happy mixing!
