Hey everyone!

In just one week - Expect awesome things to be coming to MineCove on March 1st.

Without really getting into too much detail here, I'm pleased to vaguely share the following:

  • The value of your Lunas will increase substantially!
  • 500+ new valuable collectible items!
  • Tons of major, long requested, changes!

...And an additional major feature of certifiably insane proportions!

Be sure to keep a very close eye on MineCove come this March. More details will follow at the end of the month.

On a completely unrelated note, I was informed that today is a notable day for a small group of MineCovians - The 4th birthday of Nesscraft.

A brief history -

Nesscraft was a small, MineCove inspired Minecraft server, that sadly closed despite our best efforts. Following it's closure, MineCove purchased the rights to Nesscraft so that the players from Nesscraft could have a like-minded community to be a part of.

Awesomely enough, we have had a bunch of fantastic community members join us including mastercheif235 (Muggeh), Noble_Haloz (NobleIsBack), jordypie13, bugsypwnz (Snacks88), nicole_bug_eyes, CrazyApple_, and just in the recent months both zMagma and idotbubble have joined our community.

With that, I'd like us to reflect on the memory of the old Nesscraft server that brought us these irreplaceable community members to MineCove. They have all helped make MineCove the fantastic community that it is today.

Anyhow, that's all I have for now.
Remember - March 1st. Expect big things!

Hey everyone!

Do you enjoy mining? If so, read on!
(If not, you probably shouldn't be playing MINEcraft)

To moderately spice up the whole mining craze a new special /farmzone has been released!

Here are some of the main differences that you may come to enjoy:
  • All ores spawn from bedrock up to a height of 64. So where you might normally find diamonds near the bottom of the map, they are now found throughout the underground.
  • All ores spawn a bit more frequently
  • McMMO cooldown times are halved
  • The new /farmzone has no world border
  • You may stumble across the occasional 'ore hoard'. What does that mean? You'll see!
  • Numerous things that would normally kill you, such as fall damage or lava, wont!
  • The map is rather visually appealing

Additionally it should be worth noting that many features will not function as expected, specifically:

Crates. Crates will not open. If you try and end up losing one, we'll ask you to pretty please read these announcements. We write them to inform you so you don't lose your crates. Ok, maybe I write them a little bit to practice my writing skill but they are mostly for you guys.

Chat. Chat will not work. You will not be able receive chat from the rest of MineCove nor send it. Focus on mining instead of chatting! All the same if you feel you need to, by all means use our Discord chat.

Warp commands. If you need to go /home or go to a specific /warp, please use /survival first.

There's an additional few things that I'm sure you will figure out along the way. I should mention that at some point we'll probably place a daily time limit for this new /farmzone, but not yet. For now, enjoy it for what it has to offer.

If you have any questions, or if you need to tell us that you lost a crate in the new /Farmzone, please let us know below.

Thanks everyone!

Howdy everyone,

I'd like to draw your attention to a few new features available on MineCove, listed in an easy to read format!

Kits - Ranked players can now spawn in kits for their rank and all the ranks that they inherit. The kits are Iron, Gold, Emerald, Diamond, and Prestige. Kits can be spawned in once every 12 hours, however all available kits can be spawned in at the same time. Kits are now boxes which may be empty at times.

/Farmzone - After much demand, a farm world is now available. This farm world should be treated as a resource world, not a place to build. Players who do decide to build here should expect their builds to not be protected. Additionally this world is not a special one, it is a regular vanilla map. In order to access the /Farmzone, you'll need to vote 5 times for 24 hours of access.

/Fly - Despite the fact that very generous members of our community regularly purchase the /fly package on a weekly basis, some users have requested another means to obtain it. Now, by voting 20 times, a player can use /fly for 24 hours.

Username Tooltip - The username tool tip, or when you put your mouse over your name in chat, has been updated to reflect time played, blocks broken, money, mcmmo power level, and vote count. Want to increase your standing in the community? Try to increase all of these numbers!

/Lottery - Now for each vote to MineCove, there is a chance to add anywhere between 1,000 - 50,000 Lunas to the lottery pot. Additionally, every new player on MineCove automatically adds 25,000 Lunas to the lottery pot. You can purchase tickets with /lottery buy #

/Staffinfo - If you are interested in joining the staff team, another small but important criteria has been added to the minimums - 100 server votes within the month. This should take most users within 10 days to meet and it is reset on a monthly basis. Naturally players with more votes for MineCove will be given more promotion favor. For...

Hey all!

As I'm sure you're well aware, Minecraft version 1.11 was recently released. With it comes some new map features!

As previously discussed, we came to the conclusion that we should migrate everyone's builds to a new map. However quite a number of people were displeased that they may potentially be required to wait weeks for their builds to be transferred. This is due to migrating builds, or 'pasting' them, onto a new map is a tedious process.

To appease these folks, and hopefully make this process much easier for everyone all around, I've decided to migrate us to a new, 1.11 map, in a way that will not require us to do any of the 'migrating' steps.

Instead, we will simply be regenerating all unclaimed land on the map to 1.11 gradually throughout the month of December.

This means:

  • There will be no need to move items into a vault
  • All players will have their builds instantly
  • Regions will not need to be set again

But please note - All unclaimed land will be regenerated. This means if you do not want a piece of land to be regenerated, please claim it with /land.

Map regenerating will start as early as December 1st and may continue until December 31st. Regenerating the map is a gradual process, so do not expect completion until the end of December.

Additionally, any unclaimed land that is regenerated is not recoverable.

Finally - We'll be updating the server to 1.11 on Monday, November 28th. Please note that /Market will be unavailable following Monday until an update is released, so it'd be in your best interests to pull your items off of it!

Hopefully this change in plans makes everyone a bit more happy, if you have any questions do let us know

Howdy folks,

MineCove's cleanup process is moving along smoothly, you may have already noticed the increased performance output of our server (Hooray!)

We've just completed the second to last phase of the cleanup process, the clearing of regions and the subsequent refund for repurchasing of those regions.

Now, not only is it highly important that you reclaim your region, but also that you leave open the possibility for some potential complications. Namely - You go to claim your land and, uh oh, someone else has claimed over it! If this is the case, please do not assume it was intentional. Merely submitting a /modreq will result in your region troubles being resolved.

Once again -

If there are any complications with you reclaiming your land, please submit a /modreq and a staff member will help you

I would also like to take the time to thank the entire staff team for tirelessly collecting, logging, and calculating the region refunds. Without them we could never have proceeded with this enormous project. So be sure to thank your local staff member next you see one - They deserve it!

See you on the server!
