Since 1.12 we've lost the global market and the chestshops, so we're trying QuickShops.
QuickShops is like Chest Shops but it has a GUI and you can search for items nearby. It looks pretty cool!
It has some conflicts with Grief Prevention, so when you drop a chest you have to /abandonclaim for people to use your shop!
Here's how to get started.
Go to /warp shops and find a shop you want to setup. First come first served!
How to Create a Shop
- Place a chest on the ground. Type /abandonclaim
- Hit the chest with the item you want to trade
- Type in price for the item (As prompted) in chat
- Fill the chest...
With the introduction of BlockTown v.10, we're trying a new market system that should make everything a lot easier for everyone. It's called Global Market and it's largely command and GUI based. It's easy to get the hang of, but if you need help, follow this introduction:
If you're looking to sell an item that you have, you must hold that item and use the command:
You will have to create a price per quantity for the command following the long form:
/market create [price] [quantity]
This will put your item on the market listings menu, which can be accessed using:
In this GUI, you can...
We've reset the map - welcome to BlockTown v10!
All claim areas, and economy balances are back to 0!
The following is now disabled as part of v10:
- Hunger Games
- EggCatcher - use the food methods to lure animals back to your area
Hey everyone! Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you all success and joy!
BlockTown's spawn is ready for a party so if you're around, we'll be sure to have some fireworks at /spawn all throughout the night tonight!
Feel free to reply to this post and share your screenshots if you join in on the fun!
Merry Christmas everyone! May your day be full of happiness, great gifts and quality time spent with loved ones!
See you in game soon!
Recently there has been a very big issue on a very simple topic, and that's PvP. When BlockTown started, there was little interference when it came to matters of PvP. There was simply wilderness, and safe zones. This has been true throughout BlockTown history with the exception of BlockTown 4 where PvP was disabled (It was brought back in later maps because of the high demand for it). Now, on BlockTown 9, every issue that the admins seem to get involves PvP.
BlockTown 9 follows the same concept that all previous BlockTown maps (which had PvP enabled) had set. PvP has safe zones and wilderness. While the methods of creating these safe zones have changed, the idea remains. BlockTown 9 has possibly the easiest way to avoid PvP yet! Claims can be made at your base that render it PvP free! Plus, this territory can be expanded for free the more you play! Protection has never been so simple.
Hey everyone, this is a quick update to say that I've gone ahead and migrated everything over to 1.11 today!
Come join us and find those Mansions and catch some llamas!
The newest addition to the BlockTown network is a small PVP server! Type /pvp from the Survival Server to join.
Once you join, you get diamond armor, diamond sword and a basic shield. Everyone gets the same gear, no enchants, no inventory, no ranks, no money, no saves... nothing!
It's that simple! Then it's a fight to the death... good luck!
To return back to the Survival Server, you can type /hub
Hey everyone! BlockTown now has a 1.11 test server online!
To join our 1.11 test server just load 1.11 in your Minecraft client and join the server as normal. You will be re-directed to the test server right away!
As usual with test servers there may be bugs, and you will not be able to save your buildings or inventory from the test server when we move the Survival Server to 1.11.
The Survival Server from 1.10.2 will be upgraded to 1.11 later this week and all of your buildings...
