  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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

  5. 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...

  8. 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,...

  12. 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...

  13. 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.

  14. Info Parkour Added

    This has been added to the creative server.

    These commands are the 3 most important to know (The Big Three):
    /cp play [map name] : Displays the map list to choose a map and play on it (or directly teleports the player to the specified map).
    /cp create : Puts the player in a new map in creation mode. They can also come back to their last edited map and find maps in which their were invited by using this command.
    /cp leave : If the player is in a map, teleports them where they were before playing CreativeParkour.

    Map creation
    • Each player gets a secured plot to build their parkour map in creative mode (it doesn't need plot plugins)
    • Players' inventory are stored and given back when they leave the map
    • WorldEdit with most of the usual commands like set, copy, undo... (completely secured and restricted to parkour maps and AsyncWorldEdit compatible)...

  15. Info Minecraft 1.11

    Yes folks, the update is fast approaching. The expected release date is Monday 14th November.

    As is usual with any update, I will be updating the server as soon as possible after the release date. However, please not I need to wait for the server software to be updated first, which should be approximately a few days after its initial release.

    In advance, i already have a test server environment set up, which is a copy of Survival. I will need to test ALL plugins, and work out what plugins will break, and yes, there may be some.

    Once i am happy on the test server, i will then move to Introducing 1.11 to Mineplay.

    Are you ready?

  16. Alert Pvp In Survival?

    Simple Question, would you like to see pvp in Survival?

    It would work like this:

    Players inside land claims would always be safe from pvp, it would only be applicable if out in the wild.

    This post is just to get your initial feed back,

  17. Alert Website Info.

    Due to several issues with the current website hosting company, I am looking to change where it is hosted.

    This will have no effect on you guys, but, during the transfer process, there may a little down time on site while changes are made.

    This post is just for you information only.

  18. Guide Online Shop

    Hello ladies and gents, hope you are doing well. This is a post to give you an insight into the website shop.

    1st of all
    What is it?
    Well, as its name suggests, it's a shop on the website. You can use it to buy perks on the website - such as a name change or a gift for someone, or to buy perks on the server, such as a name colour change, or fly mode for a day. To get to the shop, you go to the top right of your screen, and click 'shop' Easy peasy. To view your current credits, all you need to do is hover over shop, and it'll be there at the top of the menu.

    Credits are the currency you use to buy items in the shop with. Earning credits is fairly simple, you get 2 for logging in each day. You can also get 10 credits, yes 10 whole credits, for posting a new thread. But beware, if a post is deleted, you loose credits. So spamming 'lol' won't...

  19. Accessing The Credits Shop

    For the more astute of you, you will notice i have changed the position of the shop selector.

    The area near the inbox and alerts was looking somewhat cluttered.

    Tell me what you think. Thanks
