    Spring Update 2016

    Besides the default vanilla Minecraft features, there are a few extras that our server offers.
    Some features are limited to certain usergroups.

    mcMMO is an RPG add-on to Minecraft, the more you play, the better you get at certain skills. And the higher you rank. Earn extra perks by chopping trees, mining, and farming.

    Keep an eye on the exp rate. During certain weekends, events, holiday seasons we might turn on double, triple, or even quadruple exp rate to help you quickly grind a skill to a top10 level! So check in regularly.

    Events.
    Yes, we will have events. Some private, some public, some spontaneously, some advertised ahead of time. A great way to earn money, perks, and prizes. Keep an eye on the forums, and be sure to be in-game when the staff are to not miss out.

    Chairs, tired of building or need a break? Take a seat! Right click on a stairs block and you will sit down.

    Want an armour stand in your design that has a certain position? We have a few options for you. Contact us in-game for some help with your armour stand. We for example can make it small, or add arms, have it wear a sword, etc.

    Economy
    Yes, you can get some unique and cool stuff, or skip mining and just buy the blocks you need. We have a small economy. Joining the server you get $10 once, and it's up to you to grow it to a million! Using the 1MB Market Place you can sell your stuff, or use your earned money to buy more stuff.

    Chest and door Protection.
    You place a chest, boom, it's yours. You can use /LWC to protect or unlock your locked items. Doors and chests and a few more things can be protected or unlocked. This way you are certain those griefers don't get to your goodies. Only the admins can view chest content. [staff] operators can not.

    By the way, [builders] and [staff] can request admins to put a world protection area around their build to guarantee protection. Contact us to get started! Oh, are you an active player that made an amazing area that you need protecting? Contact mrfloris, you might just get a builder group upgrade, or a world area protection update.

    Warps, teleports, and homes.
    Check out /home, /warps, and /tp commands. Depending on which group you're in you can use them (or not), or even set them, or have more use of the command. Almost none of our commands have cooldowns.
    I.e. The default group has a few homes they can set, and a builder might have 5 or 10 more homes they can set.
    You can also teleport to other players, request to teleport to them (or decline incoming teleports), and warp/teleport between worlds. (Like, you can type: /spawn, at any time, or jump to /mine to go mining).

    And there are a bunch more, maybe it's more fun discovering them while you play! Join and idle, keep an eye on the live chat and maybe you will discover a couple that we don't mention here.

    Have a question about a certain command, or keep getting 'unknown', or 'permission denied'? Just ask someone in-game, and if nobody's around perhaps here on the forums.

    Summer Update 2017

    Whooo, we've done it! The server has been upgraded to version 2.4 of 1moreblock.com, and that means it's time for the Summer Update. Come join us as we play daily on our #minecraft server.

    Official version right now is: 1moreblock, version 2.4, with support for Minecraft 1.9 all the way up to version 1.12. Of course, it's strongly recommended to connect with version 1.12.

    There are a lot of changes behind closed doors that benefit the players as well as the team members. And there are a lot of features that players can use right now. And gosh, even so much more to come. Check back frequently this Summer of 2017 to find out what's new, and new , ... and new.

    We have worlds, game modes, improved RPG, economy, l00t boxes, a new menu for easy navigation, world protection for active regular players with awesome builds. We have events, achievements of all sorts, and skills you can level up. We will soon have perks, ranks, races, and jobs to push the server to the next level.

    But that's not all 1MB 2.4 comes with, not just a software update to 1.12, not just an updated /spawn area, new warps, (and soon new kits), and all sorts of features and software improvements, we're upgrading the hardware as well. Now that I think of it, I should have called it version 3!

    We are moving from a core2duo CPU and outdated RAM, a less than 1GB of GPU card, and an old dying slow HDD to a new i7 CPU with much faster RAM, a GPU with 8GB on it, and a new 1TB SSD chip able to read and write around 2G/sec. Yup, the hardware upgrade is here as well. The server will go from java 7 with a little bit of 64bit on a little bit of 64bit OS, to a fully 64bit system, with java 8 with full 64bit support and u... stop talking mrfloris, you're geeking out.

    Version 2.4 of 1MB is here, and with more to come. We have hardware, software, and feature updates that benefit us all. This means more servers, more worlds, more events, more groups, no world border in /general, and an amazing Summer filled with gameplay ahead of us.

    Please come join us, and if you have never played Minecraft, get the PC/Mac version and jump on the server. We are there to help. We have an amazing group of regulars that join in their timezone every day, so there's always someone to play with. And friendly staff to help out. If you're alone on the server, well, invite a friend! Share on social media and the communities you're part of that they can come play with you (just don't spam). And if you need help, and there's no staff online, feel free to use the forums on omgboards.com and ask away. And, if you are a parent with a kid that would love to play, you and your family are welcome. We're a family friendly server, basically for all ages. So there will be no bullying, harassment, racy or inappropriate content. Yep, I am rambling again. I am just excited.

    But words do not justify what we can show you, and neither do pictures. So stay tuned for some videos later this Summer. Pfff, stay for events, for new features, for friendships, for gameplay.

    So jump on the server at 1moreblock.com (default port 25565) and you will be in /spawn where you can safely explore. To build, just go to /general and find a spot that isn't being used by others and call it your home. Invite your friends and build a community. To browse around the worlds and all its features, type /menu (or just right click the nether star in your inventory).

    The more you are online, the more active you are, the more you build. The higher you level up on all sorts of things, from mcMMO skills, to getting richer in /money, to getting rewards from l00t boxes, or finding out about events, ... I just can't imagine you end up being bored.

    Here is /spawn, you can always get back to this spot. It will have fancy blocks, a fun little town to explore, and some signs with information about the server, its features, and what's new.
    spawn1.png

    We have recently added a new floating island, among a few other things, to /spawn, have you explored it yet?

    spawn2.png

    And if you stay long enough for the night to fall, you might just get an amazing view.

    spawn3.png

    Before I show the other worlds that have had an update, let me introduce you to the new 1MB /menu that's new to version 2.4

    You can click on all the items in there, some will bring up more menus to browse through. There are dedicated one for warps, kits, worlds, achievements, ..

    1mb menu.png

    Okay, once you've found a spot in the /general world to call your own. You might need resources, you can break anything in the mining world, the end, and the nether. These three worlds are temporary worlds. Made especially to find amazing resources. Just type /mine, /end or /nether to jump to their spawn point. Or use the /menu of course.

    Let's start with /mine, since that's recently been reset as well. The old /warps and /homes you might have set to it still work, but this is the new spawn point for /mine that comes with all the 1.12 blocks you can want.

    spawn mine.png

    Once you're out of the safety of the /mine town, be aware that there are scary monsters you might need to kill. So bring a sword or axe, and wear some armour. But, don't be afraid, they come with great l00t. They might drop their loot and a bag of gold. So fight them and win, and your /money will increase. Safe mining everybody!

    Ok, not all the blocks are in the /mine world. Some require you to jump to another dimension. Such as the end or the nether. These two worlds have received a complete rebuild for 1.12 on a new seed. Their spawn has changed, and the dragon is there again to defend the end. (Have fun fighting the dragon! Are you and your squad the first?)

    spawn end.png

    spawn nether.png

    When it is time to put your loot away and take a rest, there are some amazing worlds out there, currently unlocked to everybody to explore - but very limited to build in.. the new /sanctuary has some amazing looking landscapes where you can really find some #zen moments.

    sanctuary1.png

    sanctuary2.png

    But I know, that's not everybody their cup of tea. So there's also a dark rough little town that's in ruins and has all sorts of mobs that demand fighting. So jump over to the hunting grounds for some dedicated loot hunting and mob hunting. Go well prepared, and feel free to use the resources of that world to build armour and protection. The best way to get loot safe is to place a chest and protect it, so only you can enter it. When you've been fighting long enough, and have enough loot then come find me, I can help you cary it to /general, something you won't be able to do alone.

    spawn hunting.png

    And hunting mobs isn't the only event we have. And we will have more. There's still an adventure map or two ready to be unlocked this summer. mcMMO tripple xp events, and a hardware event. Not to mention mini games, mob arena and all sorts of amazing stuff. But one you can start with is hunting, and the other is open right now and that's /skygrid. The /challenges is unlocked again. How's your acrobatics in a survival world that exploded in a million blocks?

    skygrid2.png

    Oh, and remember that I said there's some new warps and kits to come? One is the /warp guardian, this is a build by mrfloris (that's me!) and here's a sneak peak .. (psst, a great way to grind for /repair and combat skills, as well as gain massive amounts of xp levels)

    guardian spawner.png

    Okay, that's way way WAY more than enough information for now.

    tl;dr (too long, didn't read!) Here's the short version:
    New software, new hardware, new features, new events, new everything! But, .. of course, same worlds, same people. Just better :)

    Come mine, come craft, come play. Forever.

    Summer Update 2018

    A lot of new features have been added over the Summer, we had quite a bit of a Summer Update this year. From private to public beta testing, and now available to everybody. We've had a boost in RPG features, to just name a couple.

    You can tame a horse, put a saddle on it and claim it. You can learn more about our 1MB Horse feature by typing: "/horse" in the game. Yes, you can get a mule and llama and a couple of others as well. Horses can cost money though, so read carefully what it says on the screen.

    Fishing can be boring, so we've made it less boring! Not only have we made the RPG Fishing more fun, you get fish heads and custom fish. You will notice more treasure in your inventory as well as fish heads you can wear, and place. You get money for simply fishing. And that's not it. You can sell your fish on the fish market. Or you can eat the fish for some fun rewards, effects or points. Special fish will glow in your inventory. To go to the fish market type: "/fish market" in your inventory. You can also become a fisherman now, type: "/jobs join fisherman" to make job points and jobs money. Leveling up fishing has been taken to a whole different level.

    Talking about jobs and points.

    We have a way to collect special or hard to get items now. A special points shop has been added that lets you collect and use your points. You can get points from events, drop parties, eating pointy fish, or by greeting someone when they join the game. If you earned a point it will tell you in the chat. A great way to get that Pet egg, or a Mending book, or earn a bit of extra money.

    Earning money by the way has never been this easy. You can get paid for building, or farming, mining, or fishing (like I just mentioned). Check out "/jobs browse" and to pick a job type: "/jobs join NAME" like /jobs join fisherman. You get money and points every so often while you execute the rpg tasks related to that job. Like building as a builder, or mining as a miner. Unfortunately right now the points earned from the jobs aren't the same as the points I just spoke about. But leveling up your job can be super handy and profitable. Are you a farmer? Builder? .. Maybe both? You can pick up to three jobs!

    Playing alone is boring. and there might not always be someone on the server. We've recently fixed this problem with not only more players, but also a public /party that you can join to group up on events. Grinding a job together like mining levels up your mining mcMMO levels a lot faster. But when there's nobody there you can have a personal pet.

    Your personal pet is rare, not everybody has one. Their mystery eggs are hard to get, and pet food isn't readily available. Once a week(end) Floris (that's me!) will put a mystery egg for sale. Maybe just one, maybe two. Depending on how busy the server is. Right now the eggs are worth 25,000 /money (or a 1,000 points). Yes, with a 1000 points from the /points shop you can buy one directly. If you have the money and want one, you can always ask mrfloris to put one up for sale on the global market. Feel free to ask!

    Anyway, when you have a mystery egg you have to take care of it. You have to hold it in your offhand while you're working, building, walking around, etc. The more active you are the faster you can hatch it. Once you've moved around 5000 blocks, it will randomly spawn a baby pet. Your personal baby pet! So awesome. You can summon it or put it back in your pocket. When it's summoned it will follow you around and try to help you stay safe. You're not alone on server anymore! You can name your pet once, and perhaps level it up as you go. The more you level up your pet, the more health and stronger abilities it will have. Train your pet, and you might be invincible!

    Yes, you can have multiple pets, and yes, you can trade them with other people. Pets of a certain type might be more rare, and worth more than the 25,000 you originally got the mystery egg for. A great way to get rich too!

    But nothing beats real people, and we have a few of those! You! Come play? Let's be friends! Because now you can send and accept friend-requests. The 1MB Friends feature is there now and you can see which of your friends are online. You can show someone else in the game you want to be friends by sending a friend request. And they can accept or decline it. Type: "/friends" to get started or "/friends add NAME" like "/friend add mrfloris" to start making friends. Right now you can have up to 15 friends.

    Where do you want to build with your friends? Or maybe you want to go solo and find an awesome new spot.

    We've increased our land size. This Summer Update included a bigger /general world area. It's now at 15,000 and the closer to the world border you get the more 1.12.2 land you will find. Not only that, you can randomly teleport around. The /menu (nether star in the inventory) has a compass now at the bottom you can click to start teleporting. Or just type: "/rtp" in the game.

    You will be told on the screen that you're about to teleport, and it will let you know where you ended up. If you like the spot and nobody else has used it yet: You can build there! If you see others have played there, try to teleport again to find untouched land. It is finally easier to find that Mesa biome or that Podzol biome you always wanted.

    Side note: if you are an active player that's building and want better land protection. Show me what you've made so far and I can make it a protected region. We don't like grief, we don't allow grief. And we want regular active builders to feel safe. Feel free to contact me.

    You still reading this? Man, that's pretty awesome. Thank you! It's a lot to write. It was a big Summer Update. I warned you earlier!

    Okay, okay, maybe not everybody is your friend. Or actually, maybe it's more fun with friends! FIGHTING! Or rather, Player vs Player (pvp) is now enabled. Get your skills up, get your armour on, and take those weapons out for a spin. You can toggle your pvp status to ON, and fight a buddy (or enemy). By default PvP is OFF for everybody. You have to specifically turn it on.
    Note please that pvp is best to played in unprotected land, while not being in a /party together, and when both players have it turned On. Some worlds don't allow pvp. But the global area of the wilderness (that's the /general and /mine worlds) both allow it. This is a bit confusing, but it comes down to: Almost everywhere, with a few exceptions. Have fun fighting, keep it friendly though. If you pick up their stuff you *can* keep it. It's not against the server rules to take your wins. But you probably are a nicer person if you return the armour and stuff back. That way you can keep fighting! Maybe be clear about your fight-rules before you turn pvp on.

    Did you know you can now get the head of your victim upon their death? Aw year!

    Type "/pvp" in the game to get started.

    When you die by the way, it will be announced to the game. Actually, with this Summer Update all the deaths are announced, be it from a mob, a cactus, height or lava. Funny deaths are announced to the public now. Try them out? It's worth a laugh.

    I forgot to mention earlier when I said mcMMO.. This is an RPG plugin that lets you level up your abilities. You can get double drops from mining for example, stuff like that. We've improved on our mcMMO. The way it displays in the chat, including while you're leveling up. And you can get more from it too. Achievements of getting to 10, 100, or 1000 levels are now announced to the global chat for all to see. And once in a while you can get a reward for leveling up as well. From now until the end of the year we're slowly introducing more and more mcMMO rewards as we keep making improvements.

    Active players that join the server regularly will also notice we have more and more mcMMO events. A great way to grind in a party, to find new friends, to earn special rewards for participating during an event, and you won't miss out on those special 3x or even 4x XP moments.

    Bonus feature: This one is a secret, .. ever wanted to see your skin as a massive statue? You can .. just msg floris in the game that you want to see your skin as a statue and I will see what I can do ;)

    A little side-note, last Summer we got the new system in place. This Summer we've upgraded the system memory from 8gb to 40gb, giving the services, backups, servers etc more breathing space. It also allows us to do more behind the scenes without compromising performance to the players.
