Once you’ve loaded into the server you can use /m or /menu in chat to open up the main server menu. This will give you access to several of the basic commands via a GUI interface. This way you won’t need to remember as many commands. Many of the menu items not only include the command, but give you a player selection screen for things like trading and trusting. The menu may change over time, and there may be more added – but for now – the main server menu contains most of the basics.
You are given access to one home that you can teleport to. You can use the /m or /menu command and shift-click the home icon to set your home. You can also use /sethome in the chat. Then you can use the same icon in the menu, or the /home command to teleport to the home location you set. Be aware, teleporting requires you to be perfectly still for 3 seconds after executing the home command. If you take damage, or move, during this time – the teleportation will be cancelled, and you’ll need to execute the command again.
If you’d like to communicate in the chat privately you can use the message command. To do so use the following command syntax: /msg – You can also use /r to reply to the last message you received. Be aware, that if you use /r and then someone else sends you a new message, it may respond to that one instead. Also, be mindful that the chat-filter checks private messages; all messages are logged and available for moderator review.
Below is some general information regarding the claims system plugin in use on the server. This area may not reflect changes in configuration as soon as they happen, and may – at times – be slightly outdated.
There are no limits on the number of claims you can have. The only limitation is based on how many claim blocks you have earned (See below).
You can use a gold shovel to adjust your existing claims/subdivision.
You can use a stick to check claim information for any block.
Claims encompass ALL the vertical space going up, but only claim 15 blocks down from your claim level. As you dig down inside of your claim, it will extend further downward.
You have 500 blocks for claiming by default.
You earn 500 blocks for every hour of playtime (Be aware, sitting AFK does not count as playtime).
You can earn a maximum of 50,000 claim blocks.
Chest claims will automatically expire after 30 days if you do not manually expand them using the golden shovel.
Unused claims will automatically expire after 30 days.
A claim will be cleared after 60 days of inactivity – meaning the owner has not been on and there has been no interaction in the claim (The exception to this is if you have earned 15,000+ blocks from playtime, in which case, your claims will never expire).
We have covered all the basic commands and usage of the plugin. However, If we missed something – you can read extensive documentation from the plugin author by clicking here. Be aware that we make many customization’s to the plugin functionality, and the documentation includes many administrative commands that you will not have access to.
Almost all commands for the claims system work on the basis of where you are at in the server. If you are standing inside of a claim or subdivision, and you use /trust – it will apply to that claim or subdivision. If you use the command outside of ANY claim, then it will apply to ALL your claims at once.
/AbandonClaim – Deletes the claim you’re standing in.
/ClaimExplosions – Toggles if explosions are allowed in the claim.
/Trust – Gives another player permission to edit in your claim.
/UnTrust – Revokes any permissions granted to a player in your claim.
/AccessTrust – Gives a player permission to use your buttons, levers, and beds.
/ContainerTrust – Gives permission to use your buttons, levers, beds, crafting gear, containers, and animals.
/TrustList – Lists the permissions for the claim you’re standing in.
/SubdivideClaims – Switches your shovel to subdivision mode, so you can subdivide your claims.
/RestrictSubclaim – Restricts a sub-claim, so that it inherits no permissions from the parent claim.
/BasicClaims – Puts your shovel back in basic claims mode.
/PermissionTrust – Grants a player permission to share his permission level with others.
/Untrust All – Removes all permissions for all players in your claim.
/AbandonAllClaims – Deletes all of your claims.
/ClaimsList – Lists a player’s claims and claim block details.
/GivePet – Gives away a tamed animal.
/UnlockDrops – When you die and drop your items, no other player can pick them up – unless you execute this command. This allows other players to grab your dropped items. NOTE: This only applies for items already dropped from death. Items dropped on your next death will still be locked by default – until you execute the command again. This item protection system DOES NOT apply to manual item drops, only player death drops.
NOTE: Any of the trust commands (Like /trust – /untrust – /permissiontrust – /permissionstrust) have the ability to add “public” as the name, and allow anyone to access that permission. As an example, if you used /containertrust public inside a claim or subclaim – anyone could access containers/mobs.
The first and most simple type of claim is the chest claim. Build and place a chest and you will automatically create a new claim area (marked by gold and glowstone blocks). Chest claims will expire after 30 days, unless you manually resize them using the golden shovel. See the adjusting claims section for more information on how to do that.
To adjust your claim you will need a golden shovel. You can right-click within your claim to reveal it’s borders (You can also use a stick for this). You can then hold the golden shovel and right-click any of the glowstone corners – you will be notified in chat that you have begun adjusting the claim. Then walk to a different spot where you’d like the selected corner to be moved to, and right click a new block. You will then see the borders update for your claim.
It is important that you manually adjust a claim as you continue to expand your build area. It is also important to expand a chest claim, as it will expire after 30 days – if not manually adjusted. You can also start a new claim using the golden shovel. See the New Claims section for more info.
If you don’t want to use a chest claim – you can get a golden shovel, and use it to create your own custom sized claim. Right-click a block – you will see a diamond block appear to mark the first point, and you will be notified in chat to set a second point.Move to where you’d like the second point to be – and right click a second block. The claim uses a rectangle shape based on the 2 corner positions you set with the shovel.
You can also use this method to create multiple claims. There are no limits on the amount of claims you can create – instead you are limited only to your blocks earned from playtime (See the general info section for detailed information).
The shovel is also used to create subdivisions within your existing claims (You can check the commands section to find out how to enter and exit subdivision mode).
If you’d like to trade items in a safe manner, you can do so with the trade system. It works like this:
Trades have global range (You can trade someone from anywhere).
One player must invite the other to trade by typing /trade in the text chat – and then pressing enter (They can also crouch in-game and then right-click the player they wish to invite to a trade).
The player will see the invitation in chat that will contain clickable accept or deny links (They can also type /trade accept or /trade deny in chat).
Once accepted an inventory will open on both player’s screens. Each player can only place or remove items from their side of the inventory (Which will be the left side for each player). They will see the opposing player’s offering on the other side of the inventory (The right side). Glass panes separate the two sides. The clay blocks in the middle represent each player’s “status”. Light red clay means that a player has not added any items. Red clay means that a player has added items, but has not indicated they are ready to trade – they may still want to see what you will offer. Green clay indicates that the player is happy with the current trade offer.
Players can click their clay block to switch to the green status. Once bother players have done this, a 5 second countdown will begin. If either play makes any changes to their offer – both player’s status blocks will turn back to red clay, and they will need to both switch their clay blocks to green, to restart the final trade countdown.
If the countdown completes, the respective items will be moved to the other player’s inventory, and a list indicated what items you lost and gained will be put in the chat.
A trade can be cancelled at any time by clicking the cancel icon in the trade inventory – or by pressing escape to close the inventory. All trades are logged and can be reviewed by moderators. If you need more information you can review the plugin’s documentation page – but be aware – we make many customization’s to the plugins we use, and the plugin page documentation includes administrative commands that players will not have permissions to use.
Some commands don’t need an entire section dedicated to them (or we just haven’t been able to write up proper documentation yet). Here’s a list of those commands so you at least know about them!
/ignore <player> – Ignores a player in the chat.
/ignore – Shows a list of previously ignored players.
/unignore <player> – Stops ignoring a player on the list.
/worlds – Opens the world menu that contains information for each available world, as well as an option to teleport into the resource world or overworld (Depending on which one you are currently in). World Warp has a 5-minute cooldown for each world. Menu also shows which worlds reset, and when their next reset is.
/channels – (EXPERIMENTAL) This lets you open a chat channels menu. You can activate channels as you wish. Each item will explain how to send a message in the specific channel.
/vote – Opens the vote menu with a list of all the sites you can vote on. Each vote will get you a persistent “Vote Token” that can be used in the vote rewards menu (/voterewards – or click the vote reward item in /vote).
