Howdy folks!

There's been some interest in migrating everything to a new map for added freshness, so I'd like to poll you guys on what you'd like!

Note: Majority vote will determine if/when we have a new map!

Now, some common questions regarding how new maps work on MineCove:

Q: Do we lose our builds/money/ranks/McMMO/regions/etc?
A: Nope! Your builds are transferred. Your money is transferred. Your ranks, both ABC and donor, are transferred. Your McMMO levels are transferred. Your regions are also transferred.

Q: How are our builds transferred to the new map?
A: In the past, we've had excellent results using the following process:
We set a date when build transfers will be accepted
When the set date arrives, you, the player, submits a /modreq in the region you want transferred
We, the staff, select your entire region and save it to a file
When we move to a new map, we paste your region in an open area of your choosing

Typically each player can move up to 1 region, but if you've more than one region you would like transferred message me here on the website

Q: How soon after the new map is opened do we get our builds?
A: Typically since there are a few hundred builds that need to be placed, we order priority based on donor rank. Diamond ranks get their buildings placed the first week following the new map, emerald the second week, gold the third week, iron the fourth week, and default ranks & staff the fifth week.

Q: How are items transferred to the new map?
A: Items are transferred by utilizing a 'vault' world wherein players can store their items. This vault world becomes available immediately following the opening of the new map.

Q: How is money transferred to the new map?
A: Typically we have you convert your money to a specific block at a rate of 1000L/block, store that block, then sell it on the new map at the same rate of 1000L/block.

Q: How are ranks transferred?
A: Automagically :)

Hey guys!

With our ongoing effort to improve communication with the community, a new small (but important!) feature has been added - /changelog

Executing this command in game will list off a chat message stating the latest changes made to the server. A date is included so that you know how recent these changes are. It's read in concise, bullet point format. Overall, it should keep you up to date with any changes relevant to you, the player.

I would suggest to get in the habit of checking this daily, however it will likely not be updated on a daily basis. This way you can be aware of changes as soon as practical.

Thanks guys - Hope this helps keep everyone in the loop!

Hey everyone!

I'm pleased to announce that MineCove's quest system is now officially out of beta phase and out for all players to enjoy!

MineCove's quests can be found at /warp quests. These quests each require that you collect a specified number of a certain block and return it to the quest NPC. Thus far, the quests are themed as follows:

  • Miner
  • Diver
  • Farmer
  • Subterranean
  • Frosty
  • GlassBlower
  • Artist
  • HellDiver
  • Excavator

What is required of you to collect? You'll just have to see at /warp quests!

Completing each quest will earn you an amount of Lunas. This amount will be small to start, but will progressively grow as you continue through each quest type. Currently, there are ten (10) levels per quest that yield a greater amount of Lunas for completing as you progress.

Stuck? Confused? File a /modreq in game ask in chat. Quests are rather straight forward and likely someone has the answer you are looking for.

Finally - A big thank you to Soup for configuring, testing, and ironing out all the wrinkles for our quests. Be sure to show him your gratitude next you see him in game!

I hope you all enjoy, if you've any suggestions - By all means let us know!

Greetings folks!

I'm pleased to announce a new feature on MineCove - Collectable/Tradable Pokemon cards!

"But how do these work?" - You may be asking yourself. It's simple!

There are 151 of the Original 1st Generation Pokemon available as cards. Below you can see an example of what numerous of these cards look like:

[​IMG]

Each card can be held in your hand, like so:

[​IMG]

Mounted on an item frame for display:

[​IMG]

Or you can hover over the card in your inventory to get more information of the Pokemon on your tooltip. (Many thanks to TheTenthCircle for tirelessly writing this data on all of the cards)

[​IMG]

Finally - You can trade or collect them! Many individuals, perhaps even yourself included, are avid Pokemon fans and may have collected these cards in the past. Now - You can collect them once again!

New cards can be obtained by receiving a 'face down' card via one of the methods explained at the bottom of this post.

Simply hold this card in your hand and right click to flip it over:
[​IMG]

What is on the other side is a mystery until then!

'Face down' cards can currently be obtained through one of the following ways:

Vote Crates
Events
Purchasing off players

In the future, they may be collectible from the /prizes prizeshop, webshop, or numerous crates (Priceless, Secret, Mobber, etc)

Some additional information -

  • The 151 cards are all exclusively from the 1st generation. Later generations may be added in the future
  • Each Pokemon will fall into one of the following categories: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Very Rare, Epic, Legendary
  • Legendary Pokemon are extremely rare. Hold on to these if you find one!
  • There is no official list stating which Pokemon fall into which category, but it should be fairly obvious where many go
  • Card value is...

Hey everyone,

Today marks four years since MineCove was officially opened on September 1st, 2012.

Four years ago today, myself and the staff team at the time opened up MineCove's community to the vast population of Minecraft players to be a part of. None of us knew what the future held. Not who we were going to meet, not the problems we'd encounter, nor the friends we'd make. It's truly been an incredible ride these past four years. I believe if we went back in time to the day we opened, told everyone what MineCove would later become, we'd have baffled the masses - How could a Minecraft community be so great? So exceptional?

But here we are folks. Four years of MineCove and we have the best community out there. The compassion you show each other, the manner in which each and every one of you looks out for one another, and the friendliness you show to new players - I can honestly say I am the proudest server Owner out there too.

I thank each and every one of you for being a part of MineCove's community. Thank you for making these last four years worthwhile. And most of all - Thank you for being exactly who you are. We wouldn't be right where we are today without you.

I look forward to serving you all for a long time to come. Here's to four years of MineCove and many more!

All the best,
Valphon

Hey everyone,

On August 30th we'll be removing /Market from MineCove. This means you should clear out your market listings and your market mail. This is due in part to numerous performance issues, but also so that a more effective market system can take it's place. For the time being until a new market system is implimented, please take full advantage of creating a chestshop. Remember - Chestshops do not have fees like the current market does!

Once again - Please clear out your market listings and your market mail by August 30th.

Now, if you happen to be unavailable to retrieve your items within the next two days, the market will be re-enabled every Monday of September for the duration of the day so that you and any other users in similar debacles can retrieve their items. Following October 1st, the market will not be loaded again. So please - Make sure you retrieve your items before then!

Thank you for your understanding, and just as an extra reminder - Please clear out your market listings and your market mail by August 30th.

Hey everyone!

I'm pleased to announce something many of you have been asking for - Official towns! Run by - You!

With the new towns system we will grant you, the player, far greater ability to customize your town than ever before. This includes the creation of individualized town plots of any dimension, holograms, NPCs, multiple warps and a slew of other neat features! You can check out all of the benefits for owning a town at /towninfo, heading into the doorway on the right.

You're probably wondering - Well what defines a town?

It's quite simply this -

  • You must have at least 15 active members (See /memberreq)
  • A minimum of 5 town buildings (blacksmith, market, library, etc)
  • A town hall with an active members board

Naturally your town will need to be approved before it can be considered a town, you can check /townapply for more info on this. To give everyone a fair shot at building up their town, applications for towns will open on July 25th.

Now - The one major note: Only six towns can be considered official at any time. If, say, there are 6 towns already and you'd like to take the spot of another town, you would refer to the town challenge requirements. This is also found at /towninfo through the door on the right!

Have fun building and planning!
Mr. Valphon

Hey all!

MineCove has updated to 1.10 - The Frostburn Update. Check out a list of new features here

Due to the numerous new nether features in this update, we will be resetting the nether world on June 24th - Be sure to clear out your belongings if you have any there

As with all updates, some server features might be a bit quirky and we may run into a few performance hiccups. In either event, do report to us all issues via this topic here.

Thanks all, have fun!

Howdy folks!

Buybuilds are back up and better than ever! Less expensive, more reliable placement, and an expanding list of options. You may check a list of some of the available buybuilds with /buybuilds. Do note that the /buybuilds list is not all inclusive - You'll need to search out the buybuilds world to see all of your build options.

One of the major issues that people ran into, I myself included, was the catastrophic error of misplacing your buybuild. Now, instead of you placing your build, a staff member will place it for you to tailor your individual needs. This means buybuilds can be repositioned to your specific desires - No more hoping to get lucky in one shot!

To see the process of purchasing a new buybuild, after you have the available funds of course, check /buybuilding in game.

That's all for now - Hope you guys enjoy the new system!
