The website receives today a bit of a facelift to modernize part of its appearance and help you find that you might be looking for, faster. A lot of that focus went into the sidebar present on all pages: the information now presented has a more unified look and clear separation between the sections. A new "Support" block shows the current progression of the Patreon campaign, and a different merch item is shown on each page load to give you an idea of the range of products available on our on ...

Dear journal, That's it, I've messed up. I've been banished from my home, sent to a faraway land with nothing but the clothes I was wearing. I'm alone, isolated in this new land. I haven't seen anyone else yet, but I have a bad feeling about this. I better gather supplies fast if I'm to survive here. I can never know what could happen next. Even from them. Are they after me? Of course they're after me. Everyone is after me. Well, I'll show them. I ...

The various servers will be gradually updated to properly support Java 1.16.3. This will have no impact on the gameplay, but you will have to use that version to continue playing. If you're still on 1.16.2, it's time to update!

Resource pack for Bedrock Edition players!
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 22 September 2020 at 13:04
Expanding our support for the Bedrock platform a step further, our resource pack is now available for its players as well! The next time you try to connect to the server, a download will be offered to enable it. If you prefer to install it manually on Windows 10 Edition, either to play here or elsewhere, you can grab it from the resource pack page! A few things like music discs don't work at the moment, but as with everything else, compatibility is expected to improve over time.

Tasmantis closing down in two weeks
Update by Doctacosa

Tasmantis was brought back online as a testing ground for 1.16 and Bedrock support, plus to allow people to mine the new Nether materials. As the interest level as gone down, it's time to schedule its closure, which will happen on September 14. That gives you two more weeks to gather all the supplies you want and move them to another server. Use this time well!

I've pushed to all game servers support for 1.16.2. This allows you to connect using .2 right away, yet we're still running .1 internally, so don't go looking for Piglin Brutes right away! While you can connect using either game versions now, our requirement will move up to .2 eventually, so I suggest that you update your game whenever you can so you don't forget about it later. Additionally, the internal version of resource packs has been updated on the new game release. ...

Minecraft 1.16.2 is being released today on both Java and Bedrock. This new version is incompatible with the previous one, so please wait a bit before updating! While I expect this to be a fairly simple update, which shouldn't take too long, the addition of new features could cause a bit of delay. I'll post an update when I have more to share. Bedrock players, as updates on that platform are mostly automatic, this isn't something that you have much control over. I'll aim ...

I'm implementing today an improved method for handling multiple game versions on the network. Previously, anyone not using our main game version (1.16.1 at the time of writing) would be limited to the lobby. This would give us a chance to talk with them and explain the version change process if needed. Now, we're adopting a different approach with a wider support. The PvP game server will now be accessible to all players using 1.8 and up, so multiple players using different version ...
