McMMO! Towny! Quests!
Look no further for the best survival Minecraft server, which has been running since Feburary 2011!

We gave McMMO a custom curve to keep leveling fun, making it easier initially and harder as you go.

Towny's upkeep is based on the number of residents, and having more residents allows you more plots! Town members get a bonus 10% to all McMMO skills!

Quests are a new way to make money, giving players gold for completing challenges. All gold can be traded for rupees at /warp cash4gold. We're slowly adding more quests to the mix, so stay tuned!

Our main world is split into pvp and pve, so you can choose either epic battles or a more relaxed environment.

Summary of Rules:

  • Don't be a jerk
  • Keep chat rated 'T' for teen
  • Don't grief or exploit
  • Don't lag up the server
  • Don't advertise
  • Try to have fun!

Interested in Joining?

1. Connect to mc.shadecrest.com
2. Complete the new player tutorial
3. Find a place to build!

Optionally, take the time to make an account on our website (matching your in game name) and introduce yourself. Our server resources and Discord are both great ways of finding an interesting place to live and getting familiar with ShadeCrest.

57 Update Logs

Update #57 : 05/13/2018 1:13:34 pmMay 13th, 2018

Re-post of www.shadecrest.com/site/threads/7463/

I updated a plugin.
That might not sound "update thread" worthy, but observe:

New Items

Lucky Rabbit's Foot

Uncanny luck in near-death scenarios. If 3 or fewer extra hearts would have saved you from damage, the Lucky Rabbit's Foot is consumed and you are left with a half heart.

Arrow of Exploration
An ender pearl AND an arrow! Teleport with greater precision, distance, and speed using an Arrow of Exploration.

Totem of Resurrection
And to the Reaper, we say: "Not today!" The Totem of Resurrection will operate in any inventory slot and prevent death from even the most fatal blows. Except the void.

New Recipes

New Mechanics

Leather armor

Leather armor increases the invulnerability timer after being hit.

Chainmail armor
The "swing penalty" is greatly reduced for all attacks that miss their target.

Gold armor
Gold armor will not be damaged by weak attacks. Additionally, if an attack would kill the wearer, gold armor will take damage to restore hearts. The current rate is 20 durability to a half heart.

Gold Pickaxe
It has returned! The Gold Pickaxe will mine a 3x3 section of stone, diorite, granite, or andesite.

Gold Shovel
Excavates a 3x3 area of blocks matching the one you hit. It determines matching materials by drops, so without silk touch, dirt/grass/mycelium are identical and will be excavated together.

Gold Axe
Chops up to 9 logs vertically. It only looks up, so chop at the base of the tree or you'll leave a stump.

Gold Sword
Takes no damage when attacking unless it kills a mob.

Whoops, nearly posted this without mentioning the new server icon and tagline.

We've updated to 1.9.4, please use that client to connect! (Older versions will not work)
A Minecraft community, Very well maintained and tested would highly recommend to anyone looking for a server to settle on and play for a long time. Has survival, creative, and FTB! Great staff with tons of experience in keeping game play competitive and enjoyable. I have personally been playing for 5 years now and have enjoyed every moment of it. Comeon give em a try!

Survival mini-update:

New plugin: QuestWorld!
There are now quests on the server that offer different ways to make money and get loot!
Just right click the Quest Book in your inventory and check out what quests you can do. As you complete tasks, the interface automatically updates and keeps track of your progress.

Need a new quest book? Just throw a crafting table into a crafting grid and pull out a brand new book!

Towny: More new towns!
More towns popped up, and existing ones have grown! If you're looking for a place to stay, they are very likely looking for new members to help them grow.

Pvp Towns:
    SiliconiaPVP [10]
    Aurora [7]
    Jedi Council [1]
    The Flachulent Bat [1]

Pve Towns:
    Melon [18]
    Mistopolis [3]
    Hermit Island [1]

VIP Perk: Armor stand editing!
VIP's can now edit armor stands in a really neat way!

  1. Right click the air with a piece of flint to open the edit menu
  2. Select an attribute to edit
  3. Right/left click on an armor stand to change the attribute
  4. With position attributes, hold shift and scroll to change the axis of rotation
VIP 1: toggle baseplate and arms
VIP 2: toggle stand gravity and size
VIP 3: modify arm and leg position
VIP 4: modify body and head position, as well as copy/paste attributes!

Survival mini-update:
Due to popular demand (and that spawn is an island), players are now given boats when they complete the tutorial!

We're now up to three towns: SiliconiaPvP and Aurora in pvp, and Melon in pve. They're all looking for new members, so go check them out!

The regions for pvp, pve, spawn, and the neutral zone have been cleaned up, and give enter/exit messages that actually make sense. My bad :D

If you are looking for resources or want to start a shop, take a look at /warp mall, a player run mall hosted in spawn! The top floor is mostly filled now, but there's still plenty of room for new shops on the bottom floor. Just remember, making a shop will charge you 200 rupees.

Yesterday we had a peak of 24 players on survival, and had over 20 players online for almost two hours! Let's see if we can top that today!

Along with the normal voting prizes (50 rupees and a chance for items), we now have milestone vote rewards! At 150 votes, you receive an extra special reward. Vote for us at shadecrest.com/vote

Our in-game tutorial has been massively cleaned up, and now only takes a fraction of the old time to complete!

Feature: /warp Portals

We've created a random teleporter that will place you at some location in the world you pick! (PvP, PvE, Mining, and Ender). Just travel to /warp Portals, and walk down one of the 4 paths surrounding you. It's an awesome reach an unoccupied location when you are just starting out!

Also, we should be posting an official "weekly" update today, so keep an eye out for it.

Testing out a new option for our server today: /tpa (/call)!

/tpa <player>:
Request any player teleport you to their location. You are notified if they don't have permission to accept teleports.

/tphere <player>:
Generally the same as /tpa, but requests a player to teleport to you.

/tpaccept [request#]:
Accept a teleport request, either from /tpa or /tphere. If you have multiple open requests, you can optionally list the request number to accept.

A list of recent teleport requests that you have recieved.

Update to donor perks:
  • [VIP I]+ have access to /hat!
  • [VIP II]+ can hide automatic announcements with /announcements hide [msgGroup]!
  • [VIP III]+ get access to custom prefixes using /prefix <prefix>!
Works with any block, as well as any non-armor item. Just hold the object in your hand and use the command!
Banner support is planned, but not functional yet.
Full usage: /hat

Allows users to hide (or show) announcements. This is per-session, meaning when you log off for any reason, you will see messages again.
You can optionally specify a group of messages to hide, otherwise it applies to all message groups.
Full usage: /announcements <hide|show> [msgGroup]

Allows the user to set a custom prefix (tag) in front of their name. Supports all formatting codes except magic using &.
Prefixes are limited to 10 characters, and the last character must be either ] or |. This restriction is likely to change to any non-alphanumeric key.
Player usage: /prefix <prefix|#clear>
Full usage: /prefix <prefix|#clear [player]|#show <player>|#set <player> <prefix>]

More perks are planned, including some in the works right now!

Our guest quiz has been fully replaced by the new /tutorial, an interactive guide on how to play on our server!

You can now move warps with /warp move for 5,000 rupees!

Donators, /hat has returned! At the moment it does not work with banners, but any other block can be placed on your head!

And finally, /names will show you all the previous names of players on the server, a very useful tool!

Come check it out, guys :)

I've been on this server for a few years now, Shadecrest is fantastic in so many ways... The community is the best part about it and I'd say the ranking system is superior to any other creative server I've built on! If you see me online and you'd like help, I'm always willing to share some technique! 

Happy Building :D

CyberVic, Max, whoever runs this, that mountain / town photo was not  built by A3 alone. Around 15+ people helped build that. Shouldn't it have a title of something more along the lines of 'A community build on the Creative Server'?

This Week in ShadeCrest - 2014/07/25


  • General - MOTD change
  • General - Bumping and Voting
  • General - Forum Moderation & Warnings
  • General - Wiki Updates
  • Creative - More creative staff changes
  • Survival - ezeiger92 promoted to admin
  • Survival - LWC protection fix

General - MOTD change
If you haven't seen our new server MOTD by now, you should go check it out. "A Minecraft Communtiy" has been replaced with "A sandbox gaming community", more color has been added, our different servers are listed, and it just looks better. This is not the final version, changes may still occur as we are going through a minor rebranding process right now, but it is a good starting point. And no, we will not change it back to "MeowCrest" [img=]shadecrest.com/site/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/tongue.png[/img]

General - Bumping and Voting
I think many have already noticed the fruits of our labor when it comes to voting. Ndv increasing the incentives for voting has more people voting than ever and we're seeing more players again. Another thing that will help is that people at the very least occasionally bump our Minecraft Forums posts. FYI, I will be posting these weekly updates on Minecraft Forums and Planet Minecraft to bump that thread AT LEAST once a week, but players bumping it more often would be great.

General - Forum Moderation & Warnings
Today I am officially rolling out a system that will allow our moderators to issue warnings on the forums and those warnings to inevitably lead to temp banning on the forums for repeat offenders. This is not to turn our forums into some kind of silly police state, but rather to just bring order to some of the flaming, trolling, and other inappropriate behavior that sometimes happens on the forums. Full details on how this system works can be found here, and will eventually be put into the wiki. Which leads to...

General - Wiki Updates
We are in the process of doing some pretty massive updates to the Wiki. This overall is to first just take care of anything massively out of date, but also begin to roll out all those policies that I have been pitching over the last few months via my ShadeCrest Master Document. As always looking for feedback on this stuff prior to it going up on the wiki.

Creative - More creative staff changes
As many of you have noticed, we had a large departure of some long time Creative staff. They will be missed, but Navarog is staying on top of things including making a new Moderator rank for Creative, more news on that later after we get it setup. TegAshLar has also returned from inactive duty so that puts the admin count on Creative up to 4 including Navarog. I think that's a healthy number and likely with this new moderator rank, we should be able to have a good healthy staff number around the clock (at least that's the goal).

Survival - ezeiger92 promoted to admin
Erik has been doing a lot over the past several months both in terms of just being an active staff presence, but also helping fix a LOT of back end stuff. Not just stuff mentioned in the weekly update, but a lot of stuff that's just been messy on the server side of ShadeCrest for quite some time. He's basically been acting in an admin capacity for the last month and a half anyhow, so figured it was right to make him an admin in title as well.

Survival - LWC protection fix
When we updated to 1.7.9, players that were added to chests were not able to access them. This has now been fixed, and all players that were added to locks before (and after) 1.7.9 can access them! We apologize to those affected by this bug for the time it took to correct.

You can see all our weekly updates @ http://www.shadecrest.com

This Week in ShadeCrest - 2014/07/18

  • General - Voting Improvements
  • General - New Hub under Construction

General - Voting Improvements
The bulk of the voting improvements are complete. www.shadecrest.com/vote and the link in the site's navigation bar now forwards you to the new voting page thanks to Imaxorz. More importantly, we've consolidated the survival and creative voting pages so you only have to vote on 1 page for each site, and so that all votes benefit both of our servers. Likewise, VotePoint balances are now shared between survival and creative. www.shadecrest.com/vote has been modified to include more features and accommodate for the consolidation. We should start seeing a lot of new players on both survival and creative provided that you guys keep voting as much as you are! Expect items to fill the VoteShop within the next week or so.

General - New Hub under Construction
qb10panther has begun work on a new hub. Our goal is to simplify it for new players while maintaining an aesthetic appeal. We'd like to get the process down to "join the server -> enter the portal to survival or creative" and cut away at unnecessary info boards or features. This will hopefully be implemented in coming days.

I was looking for a server like shadecrest for a long time, when i finally stumbled upon it. It has been one of the greatest servers i have ever played on. The people are nice and very welcoming and its exactly the type of server that people love to play on. I have been playing on shadecrest since 2012 and have made so many friends and hope to make more...if you havent joined yet, check it out and see how you like it. I strongely encourage people to join though...it is my favorite server to play on.
Wow, I never expected to find a server like this! It has so much excitment and pvp, nothing like any of the other servers
Absolutely one of the best servers out there! You have to join! I've been on this server since 2011, and have seen my fair share of servers but yet I still come back here :D

That has to tell you something! :D
