Earlier this week we removed the spawns for the Alpha, Beta, and Wild worlds to expedite traveling time between the worlds. Now we are taking it one step further. If you are a resident of a town in Alpha or Beta, you will now automatically be brought to your town spawn when you enter the world.
Similarly, when you join the Skyblock world, you will be immediately teleported to your island. If you haven't created an island yet, the server will automatically create one for you. In addition to this, we've removed the Skyblock spawn. There is a new Skyblock shop that is accessible through the /shop command and we've added six additional items. You can access instructional material for commands and features by typing /skyblock.

Not too many players have been using the Terrarium PVP Arena. Inconveniently located under an enormous spiral staircase and thousands of pounds of cobblestone paraphernalia: the Terrarium is hidden from society. Few players have ever used the terrarium due to its elusive nature. When asked whether the Terrarium was deliberately hidden from the public, designers of the structure continue to deny conspiracy theorists. The Terrarium continues to decline in popularity, almost as fast as Hornemans. With this harrowing statistic in mind we have decided to pursue measures that will help save the Terrarium.
In our efforts to improve server navigation, we have built a new functional structure in the spawn world. The new tunnel is designed to provide a direct pathway to the Terrarium PVP Arena. We know that this is not the ultimate solution for the Terrarium, but it is one step closer to bringing it to a useable state.
Navigating MeepCraft can be difficult, especially for newcomers. In order to simplify and make traveling more convenient between the worlds, we have removed all spawn landing points associated with the Alpha, Beta, and Wild worlds. You can now access all the worlds instantly via the spawn hub.
We had been receiving many complaints that obscene displays and town locations near the towns spawns were misleading players and preventing them from being able to choose a town. When players join Alpha or Beta, they will now be immediately teleported to a random location in the world, and given instructions via text on how to join a town. They may also revisit /warp towns to learn more information about Towns commands.
In regards to the wild, instructional material and rules are now displayed when you enter the portal. /warp wild now teleports players to a random location in the wild, and it completely replaces the functionality of /warp rp.
Recently, Mojang added name changes to Minecraft where you can change your name for free every 30 days. This isn't fully compatible with MeepCraft yet, so here are some things to look out for if you change your name:
What you will keep
Items / equipment / ender chest
What you will lose
Halo stats (*)
Towns/nations and resident status (**)
Last known position (*)
(*) This is planned to be fixed first priority
(**) This is planned to be fixed second priority...
