Spawners

Mining spawners

Requirements

  • Trusted rank or higher.
  • Pickaxe with Silktouch enchantment.

How to

  • Mine the spawner as if it was a normal block. The spawner will fall into your inventory. Make sure you meet the above requirements to mine spawners.

Stacking spawners

Spawners can be stacked. This technically means you are upgrading your spawner by applying another spawner to it. The number of spawners in a stack will be displayed above the stack of spawners.

Requirements

All ranks can stack spawners.

How to

To stack spawners, simply place a spawner of the same type onto another spawner.

Limits

You are allowed 1 stack of up to 5 spawners per chunk. In other words, 1 mob type per chunk and 5 spawners per chunk. You are allowed 20 spawners per farm. The farm size limit of 4 chunks per farm also applies to mob-grinders.

Talisman
Close collapsible

Talisman will give you specific boosts when stored in your inventory, ender chest or a shulker box in your inventory. You will receive them from the vote crates.

How to use

Place a Talisman into your inventory, ender chest or a shulker box in your inventory. You can only activate one Talisman at a time unless you are a higher rank which allows for more to be activated simultaneously. Adding more Talisman to your inventory will not bypass your limit and only the allowed amount will be activated. It is important you only keep the Talisman you want to use in your inventory otherwise you may not be sure which of them will be activated.

Player Shops

What are player shops?

Player shops is a feature that allows you to put items up for sale for other players to purchase. You can list items up for sale and other players can browse through and purchase items that you are selling. Players can purchase items you are selling even when you are offline.

Replace quantity with the amount of items you are selling. If you were selling a stack it would be 64. Replace amount with the amount you are selling the item or items for.

Example: Selling a stack of stone for $1000, hold the stone in your hand and type /pshop sell 64 1000.

Mob & Entity Limits
Close collapsible

Mobs are limited to 30 per chunk or per group.

This is to preserve a lag-free environment. In Minecraft, when there are a large number of mobs in one chunk or group it puts a lot of strain on the server and risks degrading the performance of the server. We prefer to keep our server running at a constant 20 TPS.

This limit applies to animals, villagers, and monsters, any over the limit will be automatically removed.

Entities such as item frames are limited to 30 per chunk or per group.

Entities that are over the limit will automatically be removed.

You cannot have a group of villagers larger than ~30.

Custom Enchantments
Close collapsible

Types

Normal: These are normal enchantments. They generally improve an item and make it stronger.

Curse: These are the opposite of normal enchantments. They generally weaken and worsen an item.

Artifact: These are cosmetic enchantments. You can only apply 1 to an item. They create particles depending on the item they're applied on. When on an elytra, they create a trail behind each wing, on melee weapons they create a spiral of particles around the victim, on bows, crossbows and tridents, they create a particle trail behind the projectile, and on pickaxes, they create particles when breaking certain blocks.

Special: These enchantments are a more powerful version of normal enchantments. They are very strong and you can only have 1 on an item.

Spell: These enchantments are abilities. You can alt-click (right-click on most items, left-click on bows, crossbows, tridents, fishing rods, etc.) while holding an item to activate it, and then a cooldown will start before you can activate it again.

Obtaining

Normal, Special, and Artifact enchantments are available from enchanting tables, villagers, and loot chests. Curse enchantments are only available from villagers and loot chests.

Levels are calculated based on their cost. If you get an enchantment from 1 exp level or 1 emerald, it will probably be a level 1 enchantment. Of course, it is possible to get above this at a low cost but it is rare.

Special enchantments are unlikely to ever be obtained at their max level from an enchanting table or villager. Loot chests will generally contain higher level enchantments.

Commands

To see info about an enchant use /enchantinfo.

You can also see a list of enchants with the /ce command.
