New Spawn

With the season comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:

Chunk Loader Update

As you may know, recently Mojang and Microsoft have been requiring players to migrate their accounts in order to play Minecraft, thus limiting the number of accounts that people have access to due to not being able to migrate them. As a result of this, we are introducing a new feature that allows players to continue AFKing various features and continue making money like before, without the need for alt accounts.

Chunk Loader Setup

Everyone can now use Chunk Loaders on Factions. A single Chunk Loader works in the same way as placing an alt account would, and it keeps spawners or sugarcane loaded within a 16 block radius.

To begin using your Chunk Loaders, head on over the /chunkloaders menu. Here you can purchase Chunk Loaders and Loader Time, as well as view all of your current Chunk Loaders.

After purchasing your Chunk Loader and the Chunk Loader Time (required to run your CL, think of it as fuel), you must click on your desired Chunk Loader to view the management menu. Here you can see all of your Chunk Loader-related information, choose which mode to set it to, teleportation options, enabling and disabling, and removal.

There are certain prices for Chunk Loaders and Chunk Loader Hours (the price per hour to keep them running). As well as this, every Faction will have a limit on how many chunk loaders are allowed. This is something that will be reviewed over time and is subject to change.

Chunk Loaders are live and ready to use on Factions, so take a look at the costs are:

  • $50,000 initial creation cost
  • $10,000 per hour for each Chunk Loader to keep operational
  • A maximum amount of 50 Chunk Loaders per Faction

We understand that the account migration is a time of uncertainty in Minecraft, so we hope that this new feature will be of use to those players who can no longer use their alt accounts, as well as players who didn't have access to alt accounts in the first place.

Additional Information

  • We will be running a Sugarcane, Mining, Woodcutting, Fishing alongside Mycelium (Silverfish) economy.
  • It is now logged when you ally and unally a faction alongside when a faction player is banned from the faction in /f logs.
  • The random enchantments given out in the Enchanter GKit have been changes to be only custom enchantments and not vanilla enchantments.
  • We are now logging the top 10 factions in Potential Value in the Leaders Discord via our own Discord bot.
  • The Faction Roster Size will be 15 with 1 kick given each day with a maximum of 1 at any given time.
  • Due to the above, we will be disallowing Account Sharing and therefore will enable our plugin to limit the number of IPs allowed on an account within 24 hours.
  • As well as this, we will be giving Faction Points to all players on the roster.
  • We will be disallowing source block oceans of any size as shown on our rule page.

Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EDT on Saturday for the Onyx reset!
