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.

Minersplay 1.13 Update & World Vote

Hi Miners,

The launch of 1.13 is coming this Friday. With an all new map and move of builds. It’s taken a bit longer than we thought especially with all of the logistics involved with this. We have 2 different custom 16k x 16k worlds that have been made especially for us, that includes all the biomes.

We plan on adding your custom villages, dungeons, ect into the world. Because of this the server will be put in whitelist mode this next week while we move builds and get ready for the launch. Now this is the part that you guys get to vote on.

Because we have 2 worlds, we need your vote on which world we will use as our season 2 world. I’m only going to show the overview of each map.

Map One:

  • Has most of the biomes
  • Lots of valleys
  • Ocean level is at y:30
  • Super tall mountains
  • Realistic trees
  • Comes with villages and stronghold
  • Map Two:
    • Has all of the biomes
      Lots of vast land
      Ocean level is y:63
      Average mountains
      Spawn has a giant cavern inside
      Not much in terms of super tall mountains

    Each picture tells a different picture in what to expect. You can Vote Here Strawpoll .

    Now if you would like your build transferred log onto the server today and build a giant dirt 1×1 tower at your build. This will let me know and the other mods that we can transfer your builds. We will try to stick them in similar biomes and landscapes. If you have an idea on an area to build at let any one of the mods know.

    As of tomorrow the server will be in full whitelist mod till the relaunch.

    Thanks.

    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.
