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:

Starting November 13th until the end of the year we are currently transferring 10* builds a week on a first come, first serve basis.

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.

*This number may increase as we adjust for our potential work load and processing speed.

Starting in January we will ramp up transfers to complete the remaining builds by January 31st.

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...

**Failure to read this post in it's entirety may result in you unknowingly disqualifying yourself from winning. Please read this post in its entirety**

Objective:

Construct a golden pyramid!

Build a pyramid using entirely gold blocks! Pyramids must be designed much like the "Great Pyramids" seen below:

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.

Tallying of scores will take place between November 30th and December 1st, with final results being posted later on December 1st!

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!

We have quite a bit to announce, so much so that we'll need to sub-divide this into numerous other announcements!

First, here's the general stuff:

New map! MineCove is now running our largest map to date. A whooping 100k border! This map will be the new Survival.

The old map will now be called 'Legacy'. Only players who logged into MineCove during the month of August will have access to Legacy. These players will be MineCove's Legacy players. You may access Legacy with /legacy.

A run down on transfers and all that fun stuff:

- Items transfer between Survival and Legacy
- McMMO levels transfer between Survival and Legacy
- Webshop packages will only go into effect on Survival, not Legacy
- Private worlds may submit transfer requests on September 14th*
- Towns may submit transfer requests on September 21st*
- Builds will be open to transfer on January 1st*

*Details on transfer procedures will be posted later on

Legacy will stay open for another year until September 1st 2018, or until it is typically empty - Whichever occurs first.

Now for the big ticket items!

New Market Place! https://minecove.net/threads/market-place.13778/
Monthly Contests Re-done! https://minecove.net/threads/monthly-contests.13782/
New Road System! https://minecove.net/threads/road-system.13779/

$500, $250, and $100 giftcard contests! https://minecove.net/threads/giftcard-contests.13781/

Misc Stuff:

- Legacy on new machine with double memory, best available processor, and a bit more general improvements
- -20% annual birthday sale will last Sept 1st to Sept 7th
- Votes will only be counted on Survival, not Legacy
- /god changed to /kermit

September's giftcard contest is a simple one:-

Obtain the highest McMMO Power Level by the end of the month

The McMMO Power Level is the total of all your McMMO skills combined. If your swords is 50, your mining is 100, and your repair is 30, your McMMO Power Level will be 180.

McMMO has been reset. The /credits system has been temporarily disabled until October. You must work from 0 mining, digging, woodcutting, taming, repairing, or fighting mobs to build up your McMMO Power Level.

Some things to make a note of:

McMMO now works at at a curve. You'll find that as you get a higher level in one skill, the rest of the skills gradually become more difficult to level. Choose wisely which skills you decide to level up.
Your best bet is to work in a McMMO Party. You'll earn more experience this way

At 10 PM Eastern time September 30th a screenshot of the /mctop scoreboard will be taken. The top three, assuming we find them to be authentic, will win the following prizes:

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

The results will be posted on Monday, October 2nd following our thorough authenticity verification.

In order to place, you must reply here with your in game name.

There will be a zero tolerance for cheating or exploiting in any form. No automation of any kind is allowed. You will be disqualified from this and all future contests and, depending on severity, banned from MineCove with your data irreversibly wiped.

No use of alts is allowed in any form.

To be clear - We understand that this might be coming off as overly strict. We want competitive...
