!-! THIS GUIDE IS OUTDATED SINCE THE SWITCH TO 1.7, A NEW BLOG IS COMING SOON !-!

Hello my dear community,


As you may have noticed, I've been rather inactive with posting on the site, but that's related to me being busy with IRL-related work or being active on the PMC Server which became public not long ago.

The Server became public onMay 21st, but has existed sincenovember 2012, first mod-only, then access by invitation.Due to it being thePMC Server and it's original mod-only access, the Staff of PMC are also the staff of the server.There are, in fact, just three ranks of Staff:
(1) Helpers
Helpers are the most common staff rank, without a real limitation. All PMC Mods are at least helpers on the
server,but normal players may also become helpers, but only really dedicated and helpful players on the
server MAY getthis rank.
(2) Mods
Mods are always PMC Mods who decided to be mod because they are very active.
This rank can't be earned, don't even ask for it (Same applies for helper ranks).
(3) Admins
There are only 3 admins. These are CyprezzParil and Zaralith; the last two manage the server's plugins.
If you notice that somebody talks as "Server", it's usually Paril or Zaralith.


The server is a pure survival server, that means that there are not many plugins and also a few restrictions.
(1) The usual no PvP, no Raiding, no Griefing
A community is based on it's community aspect. We help, not fight each other.
(2) No Teleporting
We wanted it to be like in the old vanilla, with no teleporting or warps at all.
Although, you have /sethome in case of deaths.
The Mods and Admins can teleport, but only for moderation purposes like clearing griefs or raids, we
don't teleport others.
(3) No advertising - at all
We are on the server to play, not to advertise our submissions. ThPMC chat is your match if you want to
advertise.

The same rules as PMC Chat apply on the server, but we handle them a bit stricter. Breaking the rules will get you kicked or temporarily banned.
Use your common sense, and everybody will survive nicely. If you are banned on the server, you'll also be punished on PMC.



Due to popular request, I decided to include an additional general part in here.
We (unfortunaly) had some downtimes that brought up a server IP change...
The current IP is server.planetminecraft.com
Dynmap adress is server.planetminecraft.com:8000

An alternate IP (i.e. if PMC is completely down, the normal IP won't work)
Server: 184.154.206.165
Dynmap: 184.154.206.165:8000
I'll update them whenever something changes.

And due to tons of comments on how to get whitelisted (on this post and the server post)...
You need to
(1) be lvl 10 (or above) on PMC or
(2) have 200 (or more) posts on the forums.
And in addition, if you are banned on the site... you obviously won't be able to get whitelisted.
If you reach these requirements, go to your "My Account/Edit Profile" and tick the whitelisting box there.

If you meet the requirements and you delete your submissions or delete forum posts and don't meet the requirements anymore, you will stay whitelisted.


Since the PMC Server Spawn building Contest, you'll spawn at the spawn area (not the one that won the contest).
The nether should get reset every 1st of a month, the end automatically resets everytimewhen all players leave the end.

As those who've been on the server have noticed, we have a few, helpful, plugins.
Due to them being quite unknown or not properly used, I'll introduce you to a few important ones.
GriefPrevention
If you place your first chest on the server, it will automatically generate a small claim around you, protecting others from accessing this chest.
But if you like to have a larger claim, the problems begin...
The general tool for claims is a golden shovel (I'll equip everybody who asks for one)
-equip the shovel, a message in chat will appear "You have xyz claim blocks."
the amount claim blocks set the max size of your claim
- all claims will berectangular, right-click once on one corner of the claim, then theoppositecorner
- Afterwards, another message will appear "You have xyz claim blocks left."

If you want to give other persons access to claims, there are three commands for you:
- /accesstrust
This will give the player access to redstone mechanisms like doors & farms (they CAN'T replant then)
- /containertrust
This will give the player access to redstone mechanisms & containers like chests, dispensers, furnaces
- /trust
This will give the player full access to the claim, he'll be able to build there

If you are unsure if a certain block is claimed,right-click with a stickon that block, it will notify you who has (or has not) claimed it.
The Dynmap helps in most of such cases due to its zoom function and its configuration to show these claim areas.

Sometimes, you need to get rid of a place, for this, there are two commands again:
- /abandonclaim
Doing it while standing in a claim will remove that claim, giving you the claim blocks back and
unprotecting the area.
When standing outside a claim, a message will appear if you want to remove all claims you have (with the same effects)
- /abandonallclaims
No matter where you stand, you will get notified if you surely want to do this, if you want, type it in again and all your claims will be reset.

In some cases, you getstuck in another ones claim, without permission to free yourself. But don't panic all around, there's also a command for that.
Do /trapped in cases of being stuck, and you'll get liberated.

As some guys have noticed, there are some subclaims on the server (like in Zaralith's Town)
Equip your shovel and do /subdivideclaims, it will give you the possibility to make claims inside claims...

If you are interested in the plugin itself, here's the source:
http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/grief-prevention/
BetterPassives
BetterPassives ensures mobs to spawn always, no matter if you have killed 300 on the day before...
It splits the mobs into two categories: wild and domesticated mobs.
Wild ones will despawn after a time and respawn whenever they like to do, making sure that hunters have a good time.
Domesticated mobs will stay at their place once they are domesticated, giving the farmers a good base.
You get Domesticated mobs by feeding a wild one with itsbreeding item (wheat, carrot, seed or bone).
Once fed, they will btamed and have a name tag above themselves. The names are randomly generated from a list; you can rename them using right-clicks with an iron hoe.
We introduced it due to the hunting aspect of minecraft and our fear of a mob-emptied world what would be really weird.
For the hunters and the farmers in us, it's probably the best way possible.
ProperDropper
I said earlier, that we wanted it to be pure survival... Well, we tweakearound a few things that came together in Paril's Plugin called ProperDropper.
Hostile mobs like Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, Skeletons and Wither Skeletons do spawn with armor quite often, not all the time, but enough to be a challenge.
At a realllow percentage (0.5%),creepers spawn as charged creepers, causing a lightning (and a thunder). In other words, HIDE if you find a charged creeper.
Even if Creepers won't destroy the nature (we disabled it), they'll deal "some" damage to you, I can't recommend you to try it.
But hostile mobs wearing armors isn't the final solution. We also tweaked the drop rates, making that armors get dropped more often.
You may kill a few zombies, and have a good set of armor. Due to the mobs being not this armor-friendly, the armor they drop is always damaged, but sometimes also enchanted.
Don't wonder if you see a skeleton with full diamond armor, it is rare, but not as rare as in "real" vanilla minecraft.
A real nice, complementary, addition to that is the next plugin, ChefCraft.
ChefCraft
ChefCraft is a library plugin that contains additional recipes.
Due to the ProperDropper plugin, we have lots of armors which spam sometimes, so we added the uncrafting of armors and (some) tools, and we have added a few additional recipes for otherwise unobtainable stuff.
You need a fully repaired piece of armor and in most cases a piece of coal:
If it is Iron, Chain or Gold armor, you need the coal, if Leather, then not. Diamond is not uncraftable.
Put this piece of armor together with the coal in the work bench, and you'll receive the full amount of materials that would've been needed to make it.
Since Chain armor would give fire but fire being not really useful, we made it that you'll receive half the iron amount you'd need to craft it.
Having a xp farm on this server is useful in two situations... You get xp and you get iron, gold & leather from the armor drops.
Due to the higher armor drop rates from hostile mobs, xp farms are really worth the work on there.

For further informations, open the following spoiler which contains EVERY additional recipe that is currently implemented on the server.
If you are too lazy to keep all recipes in mind, just do /recipe or the name instead when on the server.
The additional recipes:
Mycel:                               Sponge:                            Chiseled Stone Brick:

Cobweb:                           Alternative Arrows:       Horse Armors:               Saddle:

The recipe manager is also avaiable, take a look here.
FootSteps
Many guys came on the server and were like "WTF is that sorcery" or "Is there somebody following me" until we explained it that we have FootSteps.
With that plugin, you will leave footsteps on some materials(not permanently). These Materials are grass, dirt, sand, gravel and snow.
Footsteps on stone would be highly unlogical...
It's a pretty cool feature we found there, but since we are a community, for everybody who wants it on another server too, here's the source:
http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-mods/footsteps/

After all that theory, I'll present you the actually important part of the server... the community and its map.
Introducing you to a few places on the server that are worth to be seen or even to live there.

Paril's Village
XVITWOhjpg

YMhcsithjpg

One of the first villages on the whole server, once upon a time managed by Paril, then it got abandoned...
Many guys started here, especially in the earlier days, now it's at least worth a visit, but it's also possible to live there(I'd be happy if some guys would bring it back to life).
It has a nether portal & a railway to duke_Frans' village, located near his village and near nw97229's & Zeranny's base.
If there are questions regarding this area, feel free to ask me:)
duke_Frans' Township
nMFkaZhjpg

The first town a "normal" player made. Definitely worth a visit, there are lotsa farms; also connected through the nether.
It's near Lynchyinc's abode, Paril's village and Safe Haven.
Ask duke_Frans if there are questions :]
Zeranny's Stronghold
LtJXOihjpg

The best base we had for a long time due to it being located in a stronghold...
His base is public since it's the main way to the ender and the enderman xp farm, although public doesn't mean "raidable"; remember our rules.
To reach the end, jump down at the place where the beacons light out, keep yourself to one of the edges and you'll be fine, there are vines to survive the fall.
Besides the ender portal, there is a nether portal, a zombie xp grinder and many crop farms.
Situated near Paril's village, nw97229's base & zaralith's town.
Any questions go, again, to me.
Zaralith's Town - Town of the Destroyer
SyjbAajpg

eKRAhjpg

What will the destroyer do with a LARGE area of plains and extreme hills? He'll make a base and a city there.
That's what Zaralith is currently working on, including a large town and a massive player-made fortress in the extreme hills.
Many of his earlier helpers are settled down in the area, i.e. theSoup, StickAidan or tmorrish.
Obviously equipped with a nether portal (the fancy colourful lake is theSoup's privacy).
He always needs help, just ask him and he may give you a task when you are bored.
Hadowkai's refugee
ucIcIhjpg

RdmiKtBhjpg

At the (former) west-end of the world is Hadowkai's peninsula, set up as an adventure area.
Equipped with apublic mob tower, a xp farm and several other farms, it is a nice area to live and travel around, it's definitely worth a visit.
There is a path in the nether, pretty well made, connected to the large plain were many other portals are too.
Ask Hadowkai if there are any questions.
Safe Haven
lXtcaKWhjpg

Safe Haven is one of the newest places, but already worth to be seen. Set up by SinizterDzine and equipped by many others like SmartGirl701, it has many public farms, nether portal access and a nice infrastructure.
Always looking for new villains and always in transformation, it's one of the busiest places on there.
Contact SinizterDzineif you have any questions about his place.
Camo's Farm Town
Alwdagzhjpg

UCYQVhjpg

Situated between Paril's and Cipher_Punk's village, this village is heavily loaded. Large infrastructure, even larger farms... The right place if you want to get spammed with crops of any kind :D
Also equipped with nether access, you may contact Camo7 if you have questions.
Luxury_Creeper's Jungle Island
ynEWUKHhjpg

pUSvlhjpg


uqlHhrkhjpg

At the (former) east-end of the world is Luxury_Creeper's jungle island, still a WIP at the moment, but definitely worth a look.
The area looks not this interesting on the dynmap, but being there is completely different.
Many and really largecrop farms of all kinds, a combined xp/death farm with three zombie spawners (!) and lots of space to snoop around.
Ask him(or me) if there are any questions.
Piano_Creeper's Island Base
zmHyjhjpg

RuoGQhjpg

Probably the best semi-public base on the server at the moment (not only self-promotion), containing all sorts of farms and stuff like that, even if it is quite distanced from the mainland. But being situated abroad won't decrease it's popularity, I provide materials for many guys, I also like to trade...
Equipped with Nether Portal Access, Two (!) xp/death grinders, every farm that is possible, access to a mob tower north of it (via the nether) & a custom-made mushroom island since there are no native islands like that on the world.
TheModern exterior that is to be seen on the dynmap is representative, but definitely not comparable to the core of that base...
The base is now posted on PMC, you may visit it here.
Ask me if you have requests or any problems & questions :)
Cyprezz' Mountain Home (-550, 890)
mXRrvphjpg

jNKcevhjpg

Ever wondered how the site admin lives in MC? I have to say: quite simple. Built with lots of (voluntarily) helping hands, it is always worth a visit.
Paril, Dohvakiin and much more guys helped & live there nowadays, you might be lucky and meet him right there ;)
Ask me for questions, the others are quite busy all the time.
OliverFrenchie's Mountain Home
dIRkvBrhjpg

ehXWRhjpg

Located next to far far away, OliverFrenchie founded a large & silent area where he is living now. Dedicated to Zeranny who is inactive right now but nevertheless donated the beacon, it is worth a look since it's a different style.
Ask him if there are questions :)
The Destroyer's Pyramide
gtfdmdvhjpg

Zaralith's former project, situated in the middle-east desert, is a desert village with a large pyramide, named "Temple of the Destroyer".
It's the oldest public place of the server since he published it on PMC months ago.
He got massive help from many other guys like Le_Diamond_Creeper or Zeranny, supplying him for the pyramide project, but he finally finished it.
Equipped with nether portal (but easier to travel there by boat & foot), it's definitely worth a visit.
The village nearby got abandoned after he finished the pyramide and moved out, you can probably bring it back alive...
Ask Zaralith if there are questions.
Lynchyinc's Abode
RkKAbWfhjpg

ziMNiphjpg

Lynchyinc wasn't this active on the server yet, but he had the time to make a humble abode on there, probably still one of the best-looking houses on the whole server...
Definitely worth a look if you seek for inspiration, also feel free to donate him some lapis lazuli blocks, he always needs some...
Located near duke_Frans' village, it's definitely a nice place to chill.
Ask me or Lynchyinc (dependent of avaiability) if there are questions
Cipher_Punk's village
zuXJvEThjpg

Cipher's village, situated near Camo's farm village, is one of the earliest places on the whole server, definitely worth a look if you need inspiration.
I shall mention that it's the only thing that was made in Creative mode, in the really first days.
Many farms, even more well-made houses, and a nice landscape all around make it worth a day-trip.
Ask me or Cipher if there are questions.
TheBoo's Harbour
bkydZhjpg

Situated between Camo's village and Cipher_Punk's village, a new place got set up, managed by TheBoo99 and Slendertron.
It evolved into a community of modders, always frequented and busy. Due to nether portal access and many farms, you may have a look whenever you want.
Ask Slendertron or TheBoo if there are any questions.
VoV's Hobbit hut
VomBhjpg

SiwhmZXhjpg

Situated far far away, PMC's most famous tractor made a little hobbit-like home on an island, trying to escape his fame from the mainland. He's not always nice to us poor visitors, but he got a good core :)
For now, enjoy the screenshots of the island, and if you got about a week of server time, get a boat and try to get there :)
And of course, you may ask VoV or Zepsa if there are questions.
MissMarifire's village
xjMKbmghjpg

xxjDPnLhjpg

kFIadfahjpg

Situated in the north-west of the map, Mari's mansion is a proper place to chill, having a really nice area all around and an interesting interior style,it's definitely worth a visit. The nether portal is pretty much borked at the moment, try to get there by foot.
Ask Mari for anything related to her place.
BloodFall's fantasy island
CzMvzMhjpg

dJFDlhjpg

One really new place, started when we became live, but more than worth to be seen.
Located south-east of Camo's village on an island, it is a nice rustic place and definitely worth a look.
Ask BloodFall if there are questions.
PixelPause's Island
PKXYnmxhjpg

Located near Piano_Creeper's island, but in a completely different style; PixelPause's island is a nice place to chill around... Hang out there whenever you want, the landscape and the areas around are always worth a visit.
And, of course, ask PixelPause if you have questions.

You may ignore the information about the nether portals since the nether gets reset at the 1st of each month.

If there are MORE places that are worth to be mentioned in your opinion, comment below and I'll have a look at this place (probably include coordinates).
Hoping that I got you some inspiration & information or some more reasons to reach the whitelist requirements of the server, I hope it helped you all :)

Feel free to support our all work, we as a community are only like this because of our members.
Obviously, Kudos for everybody who finds the hidden message in this guide.

Credits goes to:
- The whole community of PMC and its server whose work is shown here,
Paril & Zaralith for their great job, their builds and the effort they invested in that server,
Luxury_Creeper for the texturepack I used for the screenshots,
OliverFrenchie for the title image,
Jetra for the help with the recipe animations.

A final shoutout goes for the fast supporters that got this blog onto the pop reel within 18 minutes!

We had a "complete" map reset once, due to the massive biome generation changes in 1.7 - everything you had was stored though and transferred to the new map (chests were saved, exported and reimported on the new map)
Besides that, no. Once you are set up on the server, you'll keep your stuff, even if the map should reset (just make sure that you store your valuables in chests within your claims)

Ok thanks! :D

Also, I did /sethome right outside spawn yesterday, then i did /home, but it said, you do not have permission. Is this a known error? Since I can't really build something and return to it later without this.

As the second paragraph of the blog states: you have no teleports, /sethome (as well as sleeping in a bed) has the purpose to reset your spawn in case of deaths. We decided to stay rather "vanilla", so no teleports.

copy/paste from the blog:

And due to tons of comments on how to get whitelisted (on this post and the server post)... 
You need to 
(1) be lvl 10 (or above) on PMC or 
(2) have 200 (or more) posts on the forums. 
And in addition, if you are banned on the site... you obviously won't be able to get whitelisted. 
If you reach these requirements, go to your "My Account/Edit Profile" and tick the whitelisting box there.
i'm level 13, i went to my account and ticked it but nothing happend,i am also not banned or i wouldn't be able to post this comment

All the old maps (pre 1.7, 1.7, the new one) are not going to be avaiable, simply because of the size of the world file (~5gb). Only thing I personally have is the world seed of the pre 1.7 and 1.7 map, not even I have my area of the newer map... sorry

For all who had troubles with joining recently, it was caused by a IP change, the new IP is minecraftplanet.com

I was wondering could even a newer person like me join and use the server and its resources as say a in progress tutorial? I love the game mechanics and the individual style so I would love to learn more. I do have a rather random work schedule but since my friends got me hooked on minecraft I can't seem to put it down!

We don't do exceptions, there were enough bad coincindences to avoid these things - getting to lvl10 within weeks isn't hard if you submit quality submissions, and we'll see you on the server really soon :)
I joined this server when it was first released to the public and have been pretty hesitant to join ever since. I would be so very far behind from everyone else who probably has like infinite resources... bah

The only fact that kept you from being one of these "everyone else" persons is the fact that you did not join...
Join, build your area up, gather resources, make friends - You can only improve if you start... and being active regarding the thing you want to improve is kinda useful too

That restriction was made to prevent spam and a completely overflooding server... at the moment, WITH the restriction, ~20000 members are whitelisted. 20000 members that have shown, that they do involve in the community. The community is based on trust, trust in terms of griefing, raiding, etc. And so we decided to restrict the joining, to have a a better chance for a save & funny gameplay on the server.

I've been searching the internet (google pmc bukkit etc.) for ChefCraft because I would like to have it on my own server. but the only thing I could find was this blog. Is it a private plugin or something?

"ChefCraft" itself is a private plugin, a library containing custom recipes. If you have very basic knowledge of java, you can write your own custom recipes (no need to provide it, our recipes are server-only for a reason)

that should fix it.

does anybody ever read comments below to see if the same question has probably been asked before? I assume not...
The whitelisting api between PMC and the server does not work since 1.7.4 due to a plugin that is not updated, some things have changed, etc...
I'll guess that you'll need to wait, if you REALLY want to play on the server, you might have luck PMing Zaralith.
Whitelist won't work who do I PM

whitelisting via PMC is not possible atm, sorry for that, but the communication between PMC and the server is a bit difficult. Paril works on that.
For now, only persons that were whitelisted earlier can join (we can't whitelist manually)
