At 2AM EST, we will be performing a hardware test on one of our machines. That means the towns worlds Alpha, Beta, Gamma and the Wilderness will be inaccessible for at least an hour after the scheduled maintenance window.
I have chosen to invest my time and energy over the past few weeks because I see potential here. When Klutch sent me a passionate message about how some people were dissatisfied and leaving the server, I had to do something. I wanted to show everyone how the project I had spent years supporting and working on was worth revitalizing. I wanted to get back to the core of what has made MeepCraft one of the longest running servers- the vibrant community and economy; a charismatic staff; friendly players. As soon as I saw how passionate everyone here was about improving the server, I knew it was all worth something. At first, I couldn’t bring myself to find my passion in the game, and that’s when I realized something needed to be changed. So we changed everything from the ground up with the MeepCraft 1.10 relaunch. With all the new changes, I found that I actually have great satisfaction in playing the game. Since I found that passion within myself, with hard work and advertisement, I am...
Welcome to The MeepCraft Times, the twice-monthly update to keep the community in the loop with what’s new, behind the scenes, and in the works. This will be published every other Friday.
After being a 1.8.9 and 1.9 compatible server for so long we finally decided to fully update to 1.10. While doing this we released a new spawn which you can look at photos in Fuzzlr’s post here. We also created a new towns world with a whole new economy to work with. Curious? Read Fuzzlr’s full summary of our 1.10 update here.
The wait is finally over it was implemented and we’ve received such great feedback! Head on over to /warp skywars to start your next PvP adventure. For more information...
Welcome to the Meep Forest! Our staff and architectural team worked together to build this new part of spawn. Take to the skies with the new Elytra course, a nine-ring training course that ends with a trampoline jump down to the ground below. Don't have enough Meebles to buy an Elytra? Don't worry-- grab a free boat in the waterpark and slide down the tumultuous river rapids.
Explore the new Meep Village, a village that will soon be the residence for numerous quest NPCs, including one insane villain who has already made his home:
This mischief-maker is building a time machine to go into the past and steal all the gold over and over again! Will you be a guardian of justice, or assist him with his evil plan to build a Time Machine? The choice is yours when you start the Time Crimestoppers Quest, a new quest that can be started by by clicking on the Quest Master and opening the new Quest selection GUI....
Skywars is a new PvP game on MeepCraft where each player starts off on a separate island. You will either be matched up into teams or put against other players in a free-for-all map. The last person remaining in the arena is the winner!
When you join the game, you will be placed on one of the six unique maps created by @Draqq and @DeerlandingXD from our Architectural Team. They spent a lot of time ensuring that each map would provide a fun and balanced Skywars experience!
To play Skywars, login to meepcraft.com and type /warp skywars. You will be brought to the Skywars lobby. Walk up to the queue pad or type /sw kit to select a kit of items that you can use in the game to battle other players!
While our previous spawn dared to explore a new contemporary theme for the server, it did not have the character and navigational ease that we were looking for. We decided to create a new spawn. With the help of the architectural team we drafted a new outline for a spawn that would not only bring back many great architectural themes from our previous builds, but also incorporated the nuances and complexity of today's standard of Minecraft architecture.
The spawn is a central place where players gather. There is no reason that anyone should gather in an environment that is not completely comfortable to them. Sometimes a grand or ostentatious design can take away from how comfortable the environment is. This balance was one of the things that was put under consideration when building the spawn.
Above is an image of our preliminary design. We believed the main points of the hub should be equidistant from the center, and this is reflected...
We are very happy to launch a new update that not only brings MeepCraft to 1.10, but also introduces some great new features to the game. I am very excited about the new changes and I hope you will be too.
A New World
We released the new Towns Gamma world, which allows players to experience the Towns experience from the ground up. When you log into MeepCraft for the first time, you will notice that you will have a new Meebles balance and items.
If you play on the two original Towns servers, Alpha and Beta, don't worry. You can still access these worlds and play them. Items and Meebles are freely transferrable between both of these original worlds. We didn't take anything away from these worlds in order to preserve the experience for those who have invested time to building towns there.
A New Spawn
One of the most exciting parts of the update is the release of our new spawn. The spawn was built from scratch by our Architectural Team, and it was modeled off of one of...
