I have fallen into a hole and i cannot get out of it! There is an easy fix to this, that most players find useful in sticky situations like this one, if you are in a hole and can’t seem to find another way out, try the command “/stuck” this gives you an alternate jump boost throwing you up into the air! Make sure you move forward so you can touch down on land and not fall back into the hole you were once in! If you are stuck in a place that is not possible to return to the mainland, please make us of the /report command and a GM will assist you as soon as possible.
Note: This command does have a cooldown, and you may try it every 50 seconds, to prevent people from getting into places they shouldn’t be in!
I just joined the server, but know nothing about it, what can i do? There is a few things that you can do to learn about the server, there is an official game guide created by our very own Thuum, located in the “Training ground” category, or on the main page of the website there is a tab on the left side named “Game Guide”, this should tell you everything you need to know about the game, to help you get off to a bigger and better start!
The stuff in my realm has disappeared! What do I do?! Recently stuff has been disappearing on player-owned realms, such as items, chests, blocks and builds! But sadly there is nothing we can do for you, unexpected and unfair item lost is part of reality and since the server is in beta the point is to find all the bugs so administrators or world developers will not be able to refund your items, when the server has officially moved from beta stage there will be times that items can or could be refunded. Until then we apologize for item loss and we wish you the best on regaining what you lost!
