The official mlpchan Minecraft Server. BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE 10599[View All]

Hello and welcome to the official MLPchan Minecraft server thread!

The server address is easy to remember, simply put mlpchan.net in the connection box!
1# GRIEFING: People work hard on their creations, and they don't need to come on the sever to see it destroyed! The staff will place a protection on the base of any player who requests it (this is highly recommended!), but that does not mean that unprotected buildings are open game to destroy.

This also applies to areas of land that have not been moved into by a player. Please do not try to make the server look ugly by digging random pits and leaving trees only half cut everywhere.

Do not slaughter animals that clearly belong to another player. (For insignificant farm animals, breeding them first and killing a number equal to the new babies is okay. Killing all of them is not okay.)

Do not dig one block straight down to bedrock; besides being ugly, that's practically setting a deathtrap for someone to fall into.

Do not go pour lava everywhere, fire spread is off but this still creates a hazard and makes the server ugly.

2# THEFT: Stealing from other players is against the rules. Players are highly recommended to lock their chests of valuables. If you some how get past a lock, steal from a lock that is for some reason not working, or steal from a chest that a user tried to lock but failed is against the rules, then players will be refunded their items and the thief punished.

Users are responsible for locking their own chests. If you do not lock your chest or attempt to do so your items might not be refunded. Some exceptions may occur.

3# OUTSIDE MODS: You may not have mods or hacks that give you an unfair advantage such as flying, X-ray vision, no fall damage, etc. You will be banned for using any of these.

4# KILLING OTHER PLAYERS: PVP outside of PVP areas is not allowed. Do not attempt to find ways to damage other players when you shouldn't. Areas that allow PVP will be added later.

5# PLAYING WITH OTHERS: You don't have to like everyone who joins the server or be nice to them, but do not disrupt the chat by constant fighting, harassment, or getting in the way of their activities unless they directly affect you.

Server Plugins and Commands
The server's gameplay is close to regular Minecraft, though there's a few minor additions you will want to be aware of. Most of these are to enhance the regular gameplay, or to help keep the peace between players.

Lockette: This is how a player locks their chests to keep others from taking their things. To lock a chest, place a sign attached to the chest you wish to have locked. No one else will be able to access the chest afterward. To share it with another player, add their name to the sign on the 3rd or 4th line. You can also put multiple signs on one chest to add more names, or you can also put "[Everyone]" to allow anyone to access the chest without being able to lock it themselves.

Lapis Portals: These allow instantaneous fast-travel, but at a cost of multiple solid lapis blocks. More info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKvkwrZeB7Q

World Guard: This allows us to set areas for protection. Simply request help from a server staff member to have your base protected for you and your friends. The staff won't bite!

A block logging/rollback plugin is also in use to help the staff investigate and fix any griefing.

Here are the chat commands that players can use:

* /msg PlayerName some message here
* @PlayerName some message here
Sends a private message to a player. You can use just the first few letters of their name if it's unambiguous who it refers to.

* /r more message here
Quick command to reply in a private message to the last person who private messaged you.

* /rules
Lists the server rules and a link to this thread.

* /modreq message here
Request help from a moderator. You can use this to report issues with the server (such as griefing), or to request an area protection. Your message, name, and current location will be logged in a ticket that a moderator can check later.

* /status [number]
Check the status of your modreq tickets.

* /mods
Lists all moderators currently online and in-game.

* /region list
This lists out the names of all of the protected regions that you have permission to.

* /region info
If you're inside a protected region that you own, then this tells you about the region (its name, all of its owners and members, any special flags, and its coordinates). If you're not sure if you've gotten your base protected, or whether you're inside your protection's bounds, then you can check with this. You can also pass it a name of a region that you own ("/region info mybase") for information about it no matter where you are.

* /region addowner RegionName PlayerName
Adds an owner to a protected region that you own. Owners can place and destroy blocks in the region, add more owners, and control the member list.

* /region addmember RegionName PlayerName
Adds a member to a protected region that you own. Members can place and destroy blocks in the region. They can not add or remove other players to or from the region.

* /region removemember RegionName PlayerName
Removes a member from a protected region that you own. The player will no longer be able to place or destroy blocks in the region. Note that this command can only remove members, not owners. Please contact a moderator to remove an owner from a region.

* /region flag RegionName chest-access <allow|deny|none>
Control whether non-members can access chests, furnaces, and other containers in a region that you own. The default "none" setting makes the region use the region or parent region default, which is deny. If you have a chest of free stuff in your region that you want all players to be able to give and take from, make sure to set "allow". You can still use Lockette signs to protect other chests in your region.

If you wish to add members to only part of a region that you own, then ask a moderator to create a new sub-region for you that you can control separately.

Our current staff (and in-game names) are:

Admin: BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE (Silvthril)
Admin: Macil!/5s/Techmk (AgentME)
Moderator: Tom' the /♥/ bringer (Tomtheponey)
Moderator: EMF Scootaloo!G4/R19.jIE (foxskywalker64)
General Assistance: Toybox!HarMoNytmI (ClockworkKitten)

Feel free to ask any questions regarding the server! Be sure to report any rule breakers here and in-game. When reporting an issue, stand near the issue and use the /modreq chat command so that we can find and fix the problem.

Have fun!

The block light level in the center is 13 with the gold block because there is a redstone lamp above the center. Mobs require a light level of 7 or lower to spawn.

Kamuu 14793

Silverfish everywhere.

Anonymous 14794

My F3 screen was showing a bl of 8 standing under the lamp, so it'd've been 7 at my feet.

Anonymous 14795


That makes sense; it'd explain how there're a couple blocks inside the protected zone at spawn (left side of >>14789). It's really irritating how protected zones can be changed like that, but not changed back. I grew a tree that grew up into the Spawn Tower's protected zone and prevented the leaves of a nearby tree from decaying, resulting in a really fugly lopsided treetop. I ended up having to tower up and over and drop TNT onto the tree to get rid of it.

Could a mod take care of that leftover cobblestone?

Anonymous 14798

Now that we have a gold farm, we should set up somewhere to breed horses. We could collect some horses and try to breed some with good stats, and then have a breeding stock of excellent horses that people could breed at will.

Hey, I'm the guy who made the "Church of Shrek" near the church. I fucking let a friend onto the server because he was bored and he did most of the shit and wrecked my house.
pls unban

Have to agree, we need a Direwolf20 server for ponies.

Like, you do know there are plugins that prevent griefing and lock chests right? Super easy and lightweight I'd recommend towny or grief prevention to prevent grief and lwc for item protection.

What you want is Ponycraft or mlpcraft. its an actual modpack on the ftb launcher.

Anonymous 14816

The OP post you linked explains how you can lock chests or request for your base to be protected from changes by other players.

Shinauko!FZUN5AXElg 14818

I have been playing sky factory and Crash landing and Material Energy Cubed a lot. If the server wasn't like 100% done already I wouldn't complain.

This villager's melon trade wasn't actually the final one, and now he wants 14 raw chicken to refresh, so you should probably either make a raw chicken farm or replace him.

Tyranico!TYRANTCCcc 14957

We'll just have to replace him, since it's pretty easy, just lots of waiting. It's only a matter of pressing a button to kill the guys you don't want.

Anonymous 14959

I hope we don't have to wait too long, because I've got a dozen dozen dozen hay bales that currently have no use.

Anonymous 14976

It looks like the filter is clogged or something; rotten flesh is flowing into the gold chests.

I've got a new wheat guy, but his refresh trade is cooked fish. Any chance of an auto-fishing station being built?

Anonymous 15016

Alternatively, I could try my hand at it. Could you pick a spot in your base where it would fit?

Did this one more thing since I launched minecraft for a bit.
Is next to spawn, right out the doors.

You can have all my junk if someone wants it, plus the non-secured chests around, and this whole shitty house with an unlinked portal and a large mine underneath.

mebbe i buy it for you.

DiamondDoug 15041

Walking around this place.
It's like a graveyard, except instead of dead bodies it houses cold, dead memories. Memories of livliness. Memories of fun.
Memories of happiness.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 15042

Isn't that all Minecraft servers worlds after they've been around for a while with stuff built up?

DiamondDoug 15043

Yeah, I guess.
It's still fucking sad though.

DiamondDoug 15044

I mean, I regret that I wasn't there to experience those happy times of joy.

just reset the world, or better! sabotage it and say it was griefers. What keeps people there is the competition and when a world gets so developed, it's complete dried up and gone.

With a new world and not much around people will ofc be incited to do things and stick around.

best idea ever: disable all antigrifer plugins and post a link on 4chan and pretend ur not the guy that runs hide a few chests in randome placed full of TNT and redstone torches and only post the coords to them in the thread, instant fun.. better yet skin everyone who's new and joining into ISIS or al-quada and make a faction called ISIS, and everyone whos already been there is faction AMERICA armed with nothing but bows n arrows and they have to defend everything

Anonymous 15056

Please don't reset the world; we've put so much into it, and the EMP is only a quarter done. If you want the thrill of new terrain, just go far from spawn.

Anonymous 15057

Just reset the dozen or so stone blocks in the Nether's bedrock ceiling; they stick out like a sore thumb, especially with the torches on top to prevent mobspawns. I'd gladly donate a pair of lapis portals to allow Tyranico1024 access to the roof.


Why don't the active members or myself create a PvP dome? PvE is boring after sufficient resources have been obtained.

Tyranico!TYRANTCCcc 15061

If you want a mod to patch it with bedrock, I wouldn't care. The only thing up there is the failed gold farm.

Not an eel 15070

Dangit, the server version is 1.7.2, I'm at 1.8.1, I guess I'll wait until the server update to the latest version.

Anonymous 15153

I refilled the presents under the tree. Take what you want. First come, first serve.

I'm pretty sure we have one. I stumbled upon it once.

What will happen to this server when the merger happens?

Anonymous 18461

this is the server that will be used. ponychans server sucks dick

Anonymous 18465


I am also curious as to when this server might be updated? Does anyone know?

Anonymous 18466

No one's been on for a good long time, so there's been no reason. We might be able to bother Macil into updating it if he finds out people are playing.

Anonymous 18468

That's something of a catch-22. I haven't been on in a while because 1.7.2 got stale, and I was tired of constantly switching versions.

Anonymous 18478

Well, you can talk to Macil, but he's busy working on the site merger, so good luck getting an answer. I think after the sites merge would be a good opportunity to talk to him about it. Until then, 1.7.2 isn't that bad.

Anonymous 18479


Nah, it's pretty bad. I remember last year sometime I stopped playing for months waiting for 1.8 to hit so I could have the wonderful changes to enchanting.

I think there were some other things they added, too, but none of that is probably very important by comparison.

Though all that said, even though the server is empty now, it's incredibly heavily civilized, so I might just boot up the server protocol again and play around in my own space.

Could someone do something about this hidden deathtrap of a puddle near spawn? I got caught in the current and pulled down, and the current was too strong for me to swim back up. It leads to a protected region, so I couldn't even place a torch to give myself an air pocket, so I ended up drowning. By the time I'd found it again and brewed a water breathing potion for a rescue attempt, all my items had despawned, including some pretty good enchanted gear!

I was gonna remodel the gold farm AfK room to a blue and black color scheme, but there aren't any blue slabs, so let's just pretend I did and you all can admire my cleverness that way.


Is the server down? Or did it update?

Macil!/5s/Techmk 18551

You have to downgrade to 1.7.5 to connect.
I haven't updated it in a while because the excellent Bukkit project which is used for all of the mods shut down some time after that, and I haven't spent the time to thoroughly investigate what newer options are out.

Anonymous 18552

File: 1428187854256.jpg (950.06 KB, 2304x2160, DomeVariants.jpg)

I'm starting work on a more permanent base, and I'm going for a dome design for the central chamber.

The top design is approximating a sphere with the inside walls, and the bottom is approximating a sphere with the outside walls. The middle one marks out the differences between the two with cracked brick.

Which version looks the best/roundest?
