  3. Skyblock And Prison

    Greeting ladies and gents! Hope you've had a good summer so far.

    I'm just letting you guys know about 2 features that have been "upgraded". These features are, as the title suggests, Skyblock and Prison.

    If you've been here a while, you'll remember about a year ago we had a prison server. The aim of the game was to escape the prison by ranking up through the letters until you got free. You could rank up by mining and selling items. The more valuable it was, the more money it gave you. You could get better pickaxes, better armour etc etc. The new prison will be roughly the same, but with a few extra features to spice things up a little, such as plots you can build on, like the ones in Creative. Prison is not out yet, but will be very shortly, as we are making sure everything is good and in place before we open it to you guys.

    You didn't need to be around here for long to remember our old Skyblock...

  4. The Map

    Ello ladies and gents

    Now, I know I'm a bit belated on this, but you might've seen a new thing appear in the navigation bar at the top of the website that looks a bit like this:


    Now you're not seeing things, there is indeed a page called map.

    This is basically a map of the survival world, It shows every structure, important place, and even players.

    Here's some guidance on how to use it:

    On the left, it should show something similar to this:


    The top one is the zoom. You can zoom in and out with these buttons. The second one is the layers tab, when opened, it looks like this:


    Now it's pretty self explanatory, you can toggle whether you see certain things, And the third one is the coordinates of your mouse.

    At the top, it shows a clock. This is the server time not real life time.

    And at the top right, it shows a list of players a bit like this:...

  6. News Recent Events

    Hello folks

    This is just a post about a recent event


    Mineplay has had one big server reset

    Everything has Disappeared.

    But, DO NOT PANIC!

    Everything is still ok. Mineplay HAS NOT SHUT DOWN!

    Mineplay is still alive

    Here's the story:

    It was a busy night and Mags was busy doing server stuff
    All of a sudden. The server shuts down.
    Mags goes to check the server config and a lot of the stuff had gone.
    So he contacts the hosting company and he has a big argument with them about what happens. And in a nutshell, they cleared Mineplay's files instead of somebody else's, who had requested their server to be deleted.
    A simple human error but it lost 4 years of a server in the making.

    So Don't worry. All is not lost.

    You can still connect.

    For now. The server is whitelisted so nobody can join without Mags' permission. But very soon. All will be ok. We're going to use this as an opportunity for a fresh start. The...

  7. News Many Updates

    Greetings ladies and gents! Hope you're all doing ok!

    Before I start, I'm just gonna say that the exam season draws to a close soon for me, so I'll be here on Mags' behalf keeping you all updated so be sure to check here for the latest information and news!

    This post is almost what could be many posts merged into one.
    It's about all the recent and many updates that have happened to Mineplay.

    So without further delay, let's get into this. :)

    Update 1 - 1.12

    As I'm sure you will have seen, Mineplay is now on 1.12. What does this mean? Well, if you've been paying any attention to the Minecraft Launcher, you'll know the 1.12 update was nicknamed "the colour update" and for good reason! New features include Terracotta blocks, Coloured beds (finally!) and parrots! A very colourful array of colourful things! This is just a reminder really so if you haven't done so already, which...

  8. 1.12 New Start, New World?

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    With 1.12 now almost live on Mineplay, Ive been thinking about a world reset.

    My reasons are as follows:

    • A lot of claims and builds have been made by players that no longer come on
    • A few of our players decided to leave.
    • The world we are on, isn't even a 1.10 world, so things like woodland mansions do not exist.
    • The world size, compared to the number of players is Huge, and needs to be better controlled.
    • A new start, with all the new block types would be a great time to get the "project" going.
    As previously, if this goes ahead, i will be taking requests to move builds across to the new world, as long as they follow the following criteria.

    • Players must be regular players
    • Builds need to be of good quality, and not just little dirt huts ect.
    • Only the surface area of builds will be moved, this is due to landscaping issues.
    • Builds would be moved in a first come first server basis.
    Now that you have read...

  9. Mineplay And 1.12

    As you will all now, 1.12 has officially been released.

    I have already got a test server running, where i test all plugins before i update, and, as is usually the case, there are several plugins that need updating to be compatible.

    Some of the plugins are essential to what you use everyday, and as such, I am always checking for relevant updates before i attempt to go live.

    On the whole, its looking good, but, I am not prepared to upgrade until i know everything is as good as it can be. This is to ensure your player experience stays as good as it always has been on mineplay.

    Keep an eye on this thread, and I will update you as need be

  11. News Quiz Night Host Sign Up

    Good evening ladies and gents, This post is to do with a few updates to how quiz nights will work.

    Recently, the staff members have had a chat and we've agreed that quiz nights are a little "over the shop" ;There's no particular order. So, we've agreed that we'll need to make a rota, basically, it will alternate from one town to another every week, in a specific order. Once the rota has finished we go back to the start and repeat it. This is so we know definitely which town the quiz is being hosted in each week. Now, if you want your town to take part in hosting a quiz night, you'll need to sign up below. Here are the conditions to sign up:

    1. You need to be member+
    2. You need to have at least 5 residents in your town, although exceptions can be made
    3. You need to be around on the night that the quiz is being hosted
    If all of the above apply to you, then you can sign up below. If you are...

  14. Minigames

    Hello ladies and gents, Hope you've had a good Christmas :)

    As I'm sure a lot of you know, We recently have got a very nice Christmas gift from Mags, these are Minigames! There are 13 minigames avaliable to play in Survival. To play them, all you need to do is type /mbg play and choose a game you'd like to play!

    Below is a tutorial to play a couple of the games.

    Connect 4

    Connect 4 is a very simple game, the aim is, as the title suggests, to connect 4 counters in a row. To play, all you need to do is select connect 4 in the game menu, and invite a friend to play the game with you. Then, you will be presented with a gui. you will see the player heads on the side, and a red square and a yellow square, That shows which player is which and the enchanted square shows who's turn it is. When it's your turn, all you need to do is click the square where you want the "counter" to go and hey presto,...

  18. Servers Updated To 1.11

    I have updated all servers to 1.11.

    Please update your clients if you wish to play.

    This update, as is usual in any update, has caused some of our plugins to fail, and they need to be updated to be compatible. Of note, the main ones i am waiting for are:

    • Pets *** Enabled and Live***
    • Jobs *** Enabled and Live***
    • Bank *** Enabled and Live***
    • Playershops *** Enabled and Live ***
    • MobCatcher *** unknown update time ***
    • Artmap *** waiting ***
    There are a few other minor ones, but, in essence, if you try something, and it doesnt work, assume that an update is needed.

    This wasn't a straight forward update, but it is at least playable.

    Over time, the server will be back to normal, but in the meantime, enjoy it for what it is, a very early implementation which is sure to contain bugs.

    I will...

  19. News Upgrades On Mineplay Disk Drives.

    For your information only:

    Due to the upcoming upgrade of 1.11 on mineplay, i have had to make some decisions on the way forwards.

    Firstly, there will be NO world reset of the current world.

    My intention is to expand the world border, to allow new chunks to generate, and these will contain the new features.

    The server itself doesn't have an unlimited storage space, and the current survival world is current around 8GB is size. To allow for future expansion, the hard drive the server is on, will up upgraded, givine me a whopping 240GB SSD drive.

    When this happens, the server will have to shut down, and this can take from 1 to 3 hours, depending on how things go and how long data transfer takes.

    I cant yet tell you when this wil happen, but if you cant log on, and you know that other servers are up and running, you can assume an upgrade here is taking place.

    I hope the above makes sense, and thanks for reading.
