Towny Featurettes

Town Featurettes:

 

Brush off those building skills, its time to get to work in your town!

 

                Town Recruitment is tough, and its rare that towns get formally recognized for their successes. Not anymore! Introducing Town Featurettes. A new area has opened up in spawn with the purpose of giving great towns an area in spawn and an easy warp to visit them from that area! But not just any town can join, and there are only 9 spots open for players. Of those 9 spots, players will constantly compete for the #1 spot in this area, and the rewards it shall hold! So brush off those chisels and stone bricks, its time to get to work!

Mostly, this is made to be a competition which will encourage town mayors to consistently improve their towns, and provide some incentive for doing so, and ALL towns can compete, regardless of who is in them/is the mayor.

 

Process:

  1. Towns must submit a town featurette application on the forums.
  2. Towns will be judged by a randomly selected Architect+/S-mod+, selected by the Owner.
  3. Based on the judgement they will either be denied or accepted.

 

Judging Criteria:

Towns are judged based on five catagories, each given a score from 1-10 (10 being highest):

 

  1. Build Level

 How good are the builds? Does the town keep to a general build theme? Is there a lot of ‘Empty Space’?

 

  1. Infrastructure

How easy is it to get from point A to Point B, do they have major areas marked, do players get lost too easily, are the roads wide and well lit, How much ‘Empty Space’ is there? (Empty space effects both Build Level and Infrastructure). Is it too cramped? And so on.

 

  1. Glory

 What notable achievements have they obtained, what's notable amongst their members, are they the highest in any particular leaderboard, and so on.

 

  1. Playerbase

How many players do they have, and of that, how active are they? Do they frequently go about doing things in or around the town? Do they frequently converse with others?

 

  1. Wealth

not just monetary wealth, but how much money/resources/items does a town have? Do they have a lot of ‘rare’ resources?

 

Each of these 5 scores will be listed with the town, and the 5 will be averaged to obtain the final score. Towns must have AT LEAST a score of 5 or higher to go on the board. If all spaces are filled, they must beat out the lowest number.

Towns will be repeatedly judged monthly, and may not always keep their spot. not only this, but there will only be 9 available spots for the taking, with one “best town on the server” spot, making the competition extra fierce.

 

 

Rewards:

 

All Featured Towns:

  1. A personal spot in the town featurette hall in spawn, listing their Town Name, Nation Affiliation, scores, a custom message chosen by the mayor, and having a special warp pad to their town.
  2. Mention of Featured Towns on the website.
  3. because of the above, they may have an easier time recruiting.

 

Number 1 Town:

  1. A periodic broadcast message will list all Featured Towns to players, along with a custom "title" for each town. Ie: "Wardragons, the Infernal Army" "Romah, Empire of the Great" "Bywater, Built by Gods" "Xavern, Bannercon Central" and so on..
  2. 10000 added to the town bank, 10000 given to the top 3 members of the town.

How do I enter my town?:

 

Town Mayors must submit an application on the website’s forums. They must follow a specific format. Once done, all that’s left is to wait and see! (Don’t pester staff about it.)

 

 

There you have it! Town Featurettes are here, So get your townsfolk together and start building!

 

The Lost City Update

The Lost City Update
August 14th, 2017

The Lost City raid is finally here, after 8 months in the works! After completing the four dungeons and obtaining the soul crystals, take a few well-armed friends and head northwest of spawn to the Cathedral, where the Skeleton King awaits you. Defeat this gatekeeper, toss his key into the lock, then jump down into the abyss to teleport to the Lost City. Fight your way through hordes of mobs and mini-bosses to reach the top, where the great evil of this land awaits you. Can you restore the balance of power back to Wridora?

Use of /jukebox is an ABSOLUTE MUST in the Raid for the full experience. Not only is the music selection good, there are plenty of regional music cues to tell you you're about to fight a miniboss or enter a new area. Tier 4 Gear is recommended at an absolute minimum. Flying is 100% banned within the Raid, any players caught flying by any means will be ejected from the Raid by staff.

Staffing Update
jvdb106: Player ---> Apprentice

Other Updates

New Items

The following items can only be obtained within the Raid:

McMMO Tokens: Right-click to bring up the McMMO menu, spend these tokens to level up your McMMO skills
Jobs Tokens: Right-click to bring up the Jobs menu, grants Jobs XP in the job of your choosing
Point Tokens: Right-click to grant 1 vote point.
Repair Tokens: Right-click to repair all items in your inventory!

Jobs

The Jobs system has been overhauled by removing the Tiers used to obtain them. Instead, Nomads will start with the three basic jobs of Miner, Digger, and Woodcutter as before. Each subsequent rank up to God will either be granted access to a new job, or be able to join an extra job at the same time. See /ranks for further information.

Movecraft

An additional vehicle has been added to the server in the form of BigShip. This is essentially a ship, but larger than the standard version. Available to the Page rank, they are a minimum of 500 blocks in size, maximum 1300.

Word of note to everyone, another large update to the server will be coming fairly soon which will affect your entire gameplay experience. Stay tuned for details!

Update - July 14th, 2017

This is a pretty big update, so enjoy!

1.12 - The Colourful Update

MineQuests has updated to version 1.12, which brings the following to the table:

- Concrete (solid coloured blocks, FINALLY)
- Terracotta (blocks with rather nice designs)
- Concrete Powder (think coloured sand)
- Parrots!
- And other things :)

Warzones

Major changes came to the server for this update, with the introduction of Warzones. There are a total of 10 warzones scattered around the overworld map, accessible by following the sandstone path leading out of the south end of Spawn in the Park. Now you have real reason to use /jukebox to listen to music while fighting!

Each warzone is filled with mobs that are far more powerful than those found in vanilla Minecraft. These special mobs drop gems, which can be used in the Gem Shop to acquire stronger weapons and armour. There are five tiers of gems at present: Bronze, Amythyst, Jade, Sapphire, and Platinum. 

In addition to the 10 warzones, there are 4 dungeons, which present an extra challenge. Locate all four along the roadway and complete them for a Soul Crystal. Turn in all four unique Soul Crystals for access to the Raid

The Raid is a team-based extra-powerful warzone featuring mobs that can easily kill you and your team if you do not work together, with a Raid Boss at the end with special drops. The Lost City Raid can be accessed via the Cathedral past Warzone 10; the Cathedral is only Part One of the raid, you cannot progress to Part Two without having turned in the four Soul Crystals.

Within the Warzone area, you are unable to use /sethome, so don't even try.

Menu

A graphic menu has been implemented for the server, accessible via /menu. Contained within is basically everything you've ever wanted in the server. You can view the Rules, FAQ, Ranks (including ranking up), a Warps menu (available to voters only), a Warzone Warps menu (menu accessible to voters, warps themselves purchased via coin drops or US dollars), Gem Shop, Gem Exchange, Custom Drop Shop, Coin Shop, Coin Exchange, and Point Shop. 

A similar menu has been implemented for Skyblock as well. Use /sbshop to access

Make good use of it!

Support Tickets

Due to major bugs with our previous ticket plugin, we have implemented a new one. To file a support ticket, please use /report. Staff can view the tickets using /ticket.

Merchandise

Looking for MineQuests themed shirts, mugs, phone cases, notebooks, etc?

Our server has created a merchandise shop for your enjoyment. Click the MERCHANDISE link up on the links bar to access it. Prices are in US dollars. All shipping, returns, exchanges, etc, are handled through the provider.

At present, there are two designs utilizing our logo. One has the website address on it, the other doesn't. You can choose whichever one you'd like. If there's sufficient interest, we may add additional designs at a later date.

Minor Changes

Market

Market shop prices have been modified.

Gold Sector: Bottom floor shops are $5000, top floor is $4000.
Green and Blue Sectors: Bottom floor shops are $3750, top floor is $3000
Red Sector: Bottom floor shops are $2500, top floor is $2000

All bottom floor corner shops are $10,000, all top floor corner shops are $8000. 

Message or mail Darth_Redstone to purchase a shop stall. 

Leaderboards

A new leaderboards area has been added into spawn, accessible from either side of the spawn building. This area tracks a TON of stats, ranging from time played, to kills, to biggest town, to number of grenades used in Paintball.

Go see if you rank amongst the top three in any category!

Slot Machines

A new plugin has been installed to replace the old slot machine plugin. Use /sm to view instructions, then /sm start to start playing
