Shop Changes

Link to Shop Guide

 

Shops are no longer at a player's base, they are located in the Nether Hub above bedrock.

 

Shops are to be purchased with shop tokens, costing 10 vote points each, and are banned from being sold by players. Prices of shops vary depending on location.

 

Shop Rules:
  1. Shop Floor (Obsidian and Wooden Planks) are not to be broken
  2. Maximum shop heights: Lower Plots = 10, Top Plots = 18, Corner Plots = 13. 

  3. Being offline for 10 or more days will result in the demolition of your shop.
Shop Searcher Added:

If you are looking for a specific item, /shop may be of use to you.

It displays where an item is sold and how much it can be purchased for.

You can use /getplot [player] in game to see which plot a player owns.

If you own a shop, but your plot does not appear when using /getplot [player], ask staff in chat to add it.

New Server Roles

Community Team
Wiki Team

The Community Team will be replacing the Event Coordinator Team, but will take on a similar role on the server.

 

Community Manager:

Our community manager will be leading the community team, making sure that events are planned and helping the team succeed in their current projects. Currently, will be taking this position and helping guide the team.

 

Community Contributor:

This role will not be open for applications. We are looking for members of the community who are active in game, in chat, in Discord or are engaged with the community in other ways. Whether it's building a PVP arena open to all, being active in chat and helping new players, or coming up with ideas for potential events to be hosted in the future.

We know that sometimes information can be scattered and difficult to find. Because of that, we're also adding a Wiki team! We're looking for people who are interested in helping the community in a different way, by helping document helpful information for new players along with useful resources for the most seasoned veteran.

 

Wiki Manager:

This role will not be open for applications. This role focuses on creating goals for the team, documentation review and revision, and helping make sure that the information we provide is as accurate as possible. Purelove is the current Wiki Manager

 

Wiki Contributor:

This role is open for applications, which you can find under #staff-applications in the Discord server. We're looking for members of the community who are passionate about finding answers and helping other players on the server. This role isn't writing bland wiki articles, if you have something that you can contribute, feel free to apply! If you have advanced game knowledge, knowledge of the server, or want to record lore, this might be the spot for you.
