A TNT Party!
Upon the scheduled reboot, at 2AM US Eastern time, April 1st, GriefPrevention will be disabled. TNT and redstone is free, courtesy of
If you manage to build your own nuke, go for it. They are now un-nerfed! And *when* you manage to crash the server, just wait a minute or two for it to come back. Remember to get some screenshots and post them to the forums 😀
We’ll switch over to a brand new map Friday or Saturday… once you’ve had as much fun as you can take.
Oh and you can torrent the current map with this.
Po8 is MCNSA’s home-grown economy plugin! Many of you may remember it fondly from a while back. While the concept is the same, the way it works is quite different.
a. In game type `/po8 register` This is also what you will do if you forget your password and need to reset it.
You will receive a link just like this:
b. Click that link, Set your password.
a. Place a chest, or use an existing empty one.
b. Stick some diamonds in there.
c. Use the command `/po8 deposit` (or `/po8 d` for short)
d. Left click the chest – You’ll get a “Deposit successful!” message.
e. Hop back to the web interface, and click “View your Po8 inventory!”
f. Click the diamonds in your inventory, and the item info screen will show you the buy price and sell price per diamond. I’m going to sell my 16 diamonds to the shop, and the shop will pay me 11,942.44 Po8 for them.
Now I have some credit!
a. Send some stuff to the P08 shop by putting it in a chest, and using the command `/po8 deposit`
I can even send my slightly damaged enchanted diamond sword! Don’t fear, if you’ve sent something you didn’t mean to you can get it back by using the command `/po8 withdraw` and click that chest again.
b. From the inventory screen, click Auctions -> Create Auction
c. I’m going to auction my sword, and a stack of stone, because who wouldn’t want them both? I’ve chosen a starting price of 5000 – that’s the minimum it will sell for, and put in an optional buyout price. If someone hits that buyout price, they immediately win the auction. I’ve also chosen a duration of one hour. You can have it last up to 7 days. Your auction is summarized at the bottom.
d. If all is the way you want it, click Create Auction. You can see how it’s going by clicking Auctions -> My Auctions
a. Go to Auctions -> Search Auctions
b. I’ve left the keywords blank, and clicked submit. This shows me all the auctions available.
c. Looks like Megleris is selling some cobblestone super cheap! And I just so happen to need some. so I’ll bid. Click the auction you want.
d. He’s set the buyout price at 32 Po8, and I want to be sure I get it, so I’m going to bid 32.
All the cobble belong to me!
6. Get your stuff into the game!
a. This part is easy. Get a chest with enough empty space in it to fit your Po8 inventory. If there isn’t enough room in a single chest that’s fine too! You can withdraw multiple times into different chests until your Po8 inventory is empty.
b. Use the command `/po8 withdraw` and left click that chest!
b. I’ve now got the items I didn’t auction, plus the cobblestone that I won from Megleris!
You can send Po8 to other players just by knowing their in game name, from your inventory screen.
Po8 will send you messages if something happens on the site relating to your account. You can check it by using the command `/po8 messages view|clear`
You can check your balance in game any time with the command `/po8 balance`
These days we prefer you use the EnderQuarry over the BuildCraft one because the Ender ones are intelligent about server resource usage. But a while back Fusty was kind enough to make us this picture album of a simple way to use a gate to stop power to the quarry.
The world has been generated 10,000 blocks in each direction. We’re running the default pack, so no need to add, or enable extra mods. Though you might want to grab fast craft from over here. It’s meant to improve performance, and expected to be included in future packs. It is not right now because it is still experimental.
The exported full-size image of the map is 495MB! I’ll make that one available soon if there’s some demand for it.
Remember this pack is still early BETA. There will be bugs! Some of them crash the server, some crash your client. We’ll be banning the items that do this for now, and making them available again once they’re fixed. Known items are displayed by using the command /help banneditems.
ProtectionCore is the GriefPrevention of Rainbow (the server mod we’re using). So, it’s the plugin you’ll need to use to protect your base.
Just like in GP, we’ve configured ProtectionCore to use a bone as its tool.
Step 1: Acquire a bone.
Step 2: Select a cube-shaped area. It has to be 3 dimensional, and a minimum of 5x5x5. I’ve used yellow wool to indicate the corners.
Step 3: LEFT CLICK to select position 1
Step 4: RIGHT CLICK to select position 2
Step 5: Use the command “/rg define <Region_Name>”
Note: We REQUIRE you to use your player name in the region name. This helps us make sense of things. You can do something like Evil_K9-Base, or Evil_K9_1, or similar. Regions WITHOUT a player name will be deleted, and you will be left without protection. Also, region names are case sensitive. “Evil_K9” is not the same as “evil_k9”.
You’ll see this if it worked correctly.
Adding a team mate.
Step 1: It’s pretty simple. /rg player <YourRegionName> member <ThePlayerYouWantToAdd>
Again, the region name is case sensitive. It won’t work if you don’t use the same capital letters.
You’ll get a message like this when it works.
Do the exact same command to remove that player from your region.
- Set your border at least 1 block larger than whatever you want to protect.
- Animals are not protected, build accordingly.
Bout friggen time, eh?
We really hope you appreciate all the work that has gone in to this thing! Thanks to makedpotato, BeefyJerk, BBonif, and Geo54321!
You’ll start inside this temple, and type /spawn to get back to it.
Find your way around back to the market area to get your ONE TIME kits.
There is a kit for mining, traveling, and farming. You can only get each kit once, so make sure you get it only when you really want it. Our intention is that you grab the Travelers kit, then go find a nice place to set up home. You can /sethome there, and then /spawn to get back and collect your Mining kit or Farming kit, however you like to start first. We’d sure be sad if you got all 3 kits at once, and then got killed on your journey and lost them all! 🙁
The Mining kit includes a stone pick axe, a stone shovel, and torches.
The Farming kit includes a stone hoe, some seeds, potatoes, and carrots.
The Travelers kit includes a stone sword, food, night vision potion, and speed potion.
Next, find your way to one of the docks around the city.
Boats are available from the Boat Dispensary. There is one on each of the large dock areas.
Then set sail and good luck!
These large ships will eventually transport you to foreign lands, but they’re still waiting on supplies!
Plugins are pretty limited so far, but we’ve got something! We’re using Rainbow (a modded server) which has its very own plugins. We WILL switch to Sponge when it becomes available and has the minimal amount of plugins. We’ll probably lose a few settings when we do that switch. You’ll just need to redo things like homes, locked chests or doors… that sort of thing.
Here’s what we DO have:
- Lockable chests/doors/furnaces – click it with a sign
- /home, /sethome, /delhome (2 homes)
- /marry, /divorce
- The above plus
- 3 homes
- /tpa, /tptoggle
- /ec – mobile ender chest
- The above plus
- 5 homes
- The above plus
- 7 homes
- /jemote – text “emoticons”
- /throw -riders
- The above plus
- 9 homes
- /jot – just like /seen
- The above plus
- 11 homes
- other goodies 🙂
Friend1 – optional
Friend2 – optional
If you want to make the block be accessible by more people, put another sign on the block and type:
If you want to edit a sign, you have to SHIFT+Right click on the sign with empty hand.
It will say that the sign is selected.
Now you can use /rcl edit <line> (text)
Note: You can’t change the [Users],[Private] and owner.
Doors: (Note: this currently doesn’t work)
You can have a special line on the door: [Close:(seconds)]
Example: [Close:3] << This line will make sure that the door will close after 3 seconds.
This line MUST be on the owner’s sign (starting with [Private])
We’ve been extreeeemely busy behind the scenes. Some of you wonder why I’m in game and afk so much. Well, the website is pretty much the reason. We’ve imported the forums into the new forum here, your user accounts too! You’ll find the login at the bottom of the page. Just use the same credentials you always did. Please don’t be concerned about the lack of color on your username on the forums. At the moment we have no way to properly color them by rank. In the meantime you can edit your own profile and input your rank there. That will show under your name on your forum posts. To get your avatar/icon to appear, sign up at http://www.gravatar.com using the same email address as you have registered on our forums here. Upload your avatar there, and set it to a G rating. After a few minutes it will show up here!
The new map is fantastic! I’m so excited about what the team has created for you so far. BeefyJerk, MaskedPotato, BBonif, and Geo have been working really hard for a very long time to create some amazing things for us to play in, on, and around. You may have noticed some screenshots on the main page 🙂
Trust me when I say I can’t wait to bring this map to the main server! But due to the habits of the undesirables, we can’t bring it over yet until we can protect it. It’d be a shame for any of the things that they’ve spent months on perfecting to be ruined 🙁
