Nether Tunnel Wings Contest

Hey Miners,

Now that the nether hub is finished we are looking to you to come up with designs for the nether wings. We are looking for 4 different style wings. For North, East, South, and West. Below are some building guidelines for how we want the tunnels.

Guidelines:

  • Spawnproof: All floors must be made of regular ice and/or non-spawnable blocks such as glass, stairs or slabs. Pigmen wandering onto the ice paths are frustrating to boat around and lethal if they’re angry. We don’t want ghasts either, as they can blow up the area.
  • Well Lit: Just make sure there is enough light, if you are using lights around ice paths make sure they don’t melt any ice, but are bright enough to see where you’re going.
  • Ice Paths: People like having ice paths for quick travel, can use any type of ice such as blue or packed ice.
  • Segmented: To allow players to have their own tunnel without sharing walls with adjacent tunnels, please construct designated segments that are 7 blocks wide with one block pillars in-between.

This is an example of a tunnel I designed, the outside of the tunnel wings will be using cobblestone or similar ghast proof blocks. This is to protect the tunnels being built.

How to Enter

  • Read the guidelines
  • Construct your Nether Tunnel in singleplayer
  • Save your your Singleplayer world in a zip file and send to Trevady on discord by Wednesday, October 17, 2018.
  • You may enter multiple tunnels if desired!

Once we have received your submissions, you will all be able to vote on your favorite tunnel. The top 4 tunnels will be used on the server.

Season 3 Has Started

Hello Miners,

MinersPlay Season 3 officially started on September 10, 2018. This season so far has been successful in terms of new players and changes around the server. Some of the changes are more vanilla than in the past. This time around everything is being done from scratch. No build transfers, no prebuilt worlds such as that old nether hub from S2. Another change is there is no mining world this time. It may be added in the future if multiverse updates and works properly for 1.13.1. But for as right now we are doing fine without it. We are also using a default world with all biomes within 2k blocks of spawn. As much as everyone liked custom worlds, they had their fare share of problems. We don’t a repeat of S2.

We look forward to seeing your builds and hope we can make this the best season of MinersPlay to date. If you want your builds or bases featured in the posts just leave your screenshot in the #screenshots channel on discord.

Updates & Season 2

Hi Miners,

We wanted to update you guys on whats been going on around the server. First of all we want to showcase the new server cinematic. We feature all sorts of builds in this video. Unfortunately we ended up missing a few, such as washwithcare’s base and more. However we hope that you like the video:

Now that brings us to the next part, unfortunately with the way 1.13 generates worlds and such its not possible to keep the world. 1.13 changes the world generation with new biomes, new algorithms. So the staff and I have talked it over and feel its right to reset the world. I know at this point im eating my own words, when I originally setup the server I said I was never planning on a reset in the near future. Hopefully season 2 will be around alot longer than 8 months.

New Map Ideas:

We want the new map to have all the new biomes, and much more. Thats why a custom 16k x 16k map is being designed as we speak. This map will have the custom biomes, and non vanilla terrain that everyone has come to love. But to make the map even better we want your feedback on what should be added. So far this is what is planning on being added.

  • Custom Villages
  • Custom Woodland Mansions
  • Giant Cavens
  • Great Looking Spawn

These are just some of the ideas that the staff have come up with. If you have any ideas for the new map, use the #new-map channel on discord. If you have any other questions let me know on Discord.
