Hey everyone!
Lots of stuff to talk about for this month's first update!

Mob Hunting
Mob Hunting is a plugin that rewards you for hunting mobs. Roam around the world and find monsters to kill, complete achievements, and earn money. Spawning has been increased in the Farm World (detailed below) so you can use that world to find more monsters. It should be noted that mobs spawned from eggs, spawners, farms, or any other method that isn't natural will not reward you with items. There is a system in place that will learn areas that are farms and prevent money from being earned in those areas. The store has a new Booster called the Mob Hunting Happy Hour. There is a 1 hour and a 6 hour option and they both provide double money drops from monsters when active.

Farm World
A new world has been added to MineCove called the Farm World. It is to provide a new way to gather resources rather than tearing up the main world. This also provides new players with a reliable place to gather resources. Farm World also has an increased hostile mob spawning rate, meaning you will be able to hunt more monsters using Mob Hunting! The Farm World will be reset on the 1st of every month. /rtp farm will teleport you to a random location in the farm world.

mcMMO
The mcMMO configuration has been updated to be the default values for every setting. If there are further issues with this configuration, please notify an Admin or myself. If there are any exploits that arise from this change and they are being exploited, the people abusing the exploits will be punished accordingly.

Monthly Rewards
The past two months I've been very busy adjusting to MineCove and with real life responsibilities. As a result the monthly rewards from the contests were not implemented on time. I've added /kit pokemonkit, double shiny chances, and /boost to the server. As they were delivered late, they will be active until the...

Hello Minecovians!

Most of you will not be familiar with me and some of you may have seen me pop on the server from time to time. Some of you have also been asking questions as to why I have an Owner tag and where I've hidden Mr. Valphon. I've kidnapped him and I'm here to take over MineCove! It will now be called SlimeCove. Now don't worry, Valphon is safe, he's just being kept somewhere "secret".

Obviously I'm kidding and there's a different explanation. Valphon being a busy person with real life commitments needed a break. He came to me and asked if I could hold down the fort for him for an undefined period of time. Valphon was a staff member on my server before he branched out and started MineCove. He and I have been friends for many years and have worked together on each other's servers for a long time. I'd help him here and he'd help me on mine. He's not gone for good, but in the meantime, I'll be handling MineCove. Taking on a second server is not going to be an easy task for me but I think with some understanding from everyone as I transition into this new schedule, I'll hopefully be able to make you guys happy with my ideas and the way I handle MineCove. I don't intend on making massive changes or anything like that but I will be working with the staff team to bring some new content to you all while I'm here!

A few things about me: I'm a student, I'm Canadian, I've got a real life job, I enjoy programming, video games, and going to the gym! I hope to get to know more of you either through in-game, on the forums, or on Discord.

Now on to something exciting! I noticed you all have Pokemon cards here but can't create maps because of the duplication issues with the cards. That being said as my first addition to MineCove, I've added the ability to use maps once again. You are limited to not duplicating them but you may now make them and map out your land.

Feel free to ask questions and I'll do my best to answer them!

Hey everyone!

Per our original announcement regarding the new map and build transfers, it was decided that legacy would stay open until September 1st 2018 or until it is typically empty. Whichever occurred first. It would appear that as of the past few weeks legacy has indeed remained typically empty. This means we'd close it, however player builds are still there!

As the new /survival is such a roaring success, with most preferring /survival to /legacy, we've decided to update our build transfer process to the following:

We are currently transferring builds a on a first come, first serve basis. You must have your transfer request in by January 31st.

Important - If your build isn't worth you spending the time it takes to read this post, then it won't be worth our time to transfer it. We will ignore requests from individuals who don't spend the time to read this post and choose to ignore procedures.

The process for getting your build transferred from /legacy to /survival (Note the additional parameters below):

Important - If your build isn't worth you spending the time it takes to read this post, then it won't be worth our time to transfer it. We will ignore requests from individuals who don't spend the time to read this post and choose to ignore procedures.

1. Make a post in this topic that you would like a build transfer. Include a photo of your build, if able.

2. Stand at your build in /legacy. Submit a modreq standing at the center of the build you want moved. Note that you may only have one build transfer in queue at a time.
Example: Go to /legacy, teleport to your build, find the center and stand on it, execute /modreq Build on Legacy I would like moved to Survival

3. Stand at the location you would like your...

In other words - Four equal triangular sides sitting on a square bottom.

Each Gold Block used = 1 Point
The individual with the most points wins!

Some things to make a note of:

  • Pyramids must be constructed in the /contest world
  • This special flatmap world will be removed following contest completion. You will lose blocks you placed.
  • No teams, this involves actively setting blocks down for someone who is competing.

Prizes:
1st: $500 Amazon Giftcard
2nd: $250 Amazon Giftcard
3rd: $100 Amazon Giftcard

The contest world will be locked from any further changes being made at 10pm EST November 29th. After this point you will not be able to retrieve your placed blocks.

In order to place, you must reply here with your in game name and the coordinates of your pyramid. You are welcome to edit your post, so long as that occurs before November 30th.

Howdy do MineCovians!

Until November 30th we are running a very special MineCove Gold Rush Event!

What does this mean exactly?!

You should collect as much gold as possible over the next 7 weeks! Gold can be found in an array of new methods. Some will be added over time, others removed. We won't officially announce the methods, but we'll drop some hints periodically. Like any Gold Rush, you don't know where you're going to strike - It's all based on rumor!

Some hints to start:

  • Planting trees may yield you the infamous 'Golden Tree'
  • Most crates may drop gold
  • Try putting 2 gold ingots on the top two corners of a 3x3 crafting grid
  • You may earn gold by simply hanging out at /spawn
  • Mining gold will always be a reliable option
  • Gold will be key for the November giftcard contest

Thinking you might just want to sell your gold? Limited quantities can be sold at /spawn! Limited quantities means that only a limited amount of gold will be bought in given time frame intervals. If you're looking to sell, best do it quick before someone else does - Otherwise you'll need to wait for the shop to be ready to buy more!

Have fun guys, and good luck!
