Quote from: _iPhoenix on Jun 04, 2019, 03:24 amVery useful, will recommend this to guests starting out, thanks ome :D

Guests weren't really on my mind when I was making this guide. It's more for players who already have good tools/high mcmmo skill levels and want to make absurd amounts of money in relatively short time periods (like 1 mil in 2-3 hours).

I currently occupy the #2 spot on /money top, and was recently dethroned from the #1 spot by @sky_comet. Naturally, I get a lot of questions about how I make my money. So I thought I'd share my favorite techniques with you all. All of these techniques follow server rules and are 100% legal. Just be aware that they are time consuming and not for the easily bored.

Mining

 :diamond: You'll need :diamond:

-1 Silk Touch Pickaxe
-1 Fortune 3 Pickaxe
-1 Shovel
-Glowstone Helmet (so you can see in the dark)
-Food
-1 Water Bucket
-Shulker Boxes

 :diamond: Suggestions :diamond:

-Mine at Y level 11 or 12. You can check what Y level you're mining at by clicking the F3 button. If you mine at a level lower than 11, you risk an encounter with lava.
-Mine on the border of chunks (which you can check by typing F3+G). This is because only 1 vein of diamond ore spawns per chunk. Mining on the border of 2 chunks will maximize your odds of finding a vein of diamonds.
-Use the MCMMO super breaker ability when it's available to you. It refreshes every 10 minutes and makes your mining trip less timely.
-Turn on subtitles. You can do this by going to options, music & sounds, then turn subtitles to 'on.' Subtitles will allow you to know if there's lava or a cave nearby.
-Explore every cave you come across. Caves can expose a lot of ores and there are still many left undiscovered.
-Mine every ore you across (even coal).
-Mine the ores you come across with your silk touch pickaxe first. This is because if your MCMMO mining level is high enough, there's a chance there's a chance more than 1 ore will drop from mining 1 ore. Then replace your ore and mine with your fortune pickaxe.
-Smelt your iron/gold ore in groups of 32. This is because if your MCMMO repair level is high enough, there's a chance more than 1 ingot will be smelted from a 1 ore.
-Craft your gems into blocks for a more efficient use of space in your inventory.
-Always sell your gems to the EMP. Autoshop sell prices are crap and almost always lower than the EMP's. Even if you can sell your gems to an autoshop for the same price as the EMP, don't bother because there's a 10% tax on autoshop transactions (meaning when you sell a diamond to Mallusa for 1600 emp, you're actually only getting 1440 emp).

Nether Mining

:fire: You'll need :fire:

-1 Fortune Pickaxe (with mending to make it indestructable)
-Good Armor (with fire resistance and mending)
-Slime Boots
-Elytra (with mending)
-Rockets
-Food (Lots, because you'll run out quickly)
-Shulker Boxes

 :fire: Suggestions :fire:

-Use your elytra and rockets to navigate the nether. It's easier than building bridges and pillars with throwaway blocks. Just be careful not to crash into cliffs.
-Mine all the quartz ore you come across.
-Mine the quartz ore you come across with a silk touch pickaxe first. This is because if your MCMMO mining level is high enough, there's a chance there's a chance more than 1 ore will drop from 1. Then replace your quartz ore and mine it with your fortune pickaxe.
-Craft your quartz into blocks for a more efficient use of space in your inventory.
-Always sell your quartz blocks to the autoshops, not the EMP. Mallusa is the best autoshop to sell your quartz blocks to, but the chests there fill up really fast.
-Use the XP you gained to enchant books/tools/armor, which you can sell on /ml. One of the amazing things about quartz mining is that you gain a lot of XP, which will automatically repair any mending tools/armor you have.
-I've been told by some people that glow stone is another nether material worth mining. I usually don't bother with it because it's harder and more dangerous to reach than quartz. Not to mention, it takes more time to mine.

Gold Mining

:gold: You'll need :gold:

-1 Pickaxe (Enchantments don't matter)
-1 Shovel
-Food
-Water Bucket
-Shulker Boxes

:gold: Suggestions :gold:

-Find a mesa biome. Gold can be found at any Y level in a mesa biome, as long as it's surrounded by stone.
-Dig straight down (anywhere). I know it's risky, but if you can type /w1 fast enough, you'll be just fine.
-Turn on subtitles. Having subtitles on will allow you to detect lava before you mine into it and therefore limit your encounters with it.
-Smelt your gold ore in groups of 32. This is because if your MCMMO repair level is high enough, there's a chance more than 1 ingot will be smelted from 1 ore.
-Always sell your gold ingots to the EMP.

Fishing

:fish: You'll need :fish:

-A good fishing rod (having mending on it will make it indestructable)
-A sword
-Food
-A dock/boat
-Shulker Boxes

:fish: Suggestions :fish:

-Fish in an open/deep ocean biome only
-If you're short on time, sell your fish through /fish shop.
-If you're in it for the long run, gut your fish for entropy and use the entropy to obtain augments for your fishing rod (which in turn will allow you to catch more fish).
-Sell the items you fish up (saddles/nametags mostly) to the EMP
-Use the XP you gain to enchant books/tools/armor, which you can sell on /ah
-The fishing deliveries (/fish deliveries) are worth the prize money (but you'll have to move biomes)
-The fishing contests are worth the prize money (not to mention, they're a lot of fun if others are participating).

I have a few more techniques, but since I'm pretty lazy, ima stop here and add a few more later.

Ducky's Palace has re-opened after much delay. The slot machines were updated to have better prizes, the gift shop now only exclusively sells custom merch, and a new game has been added- keno. I'm also coordinating with @Beanz_ a time for a poker tournament.

General Survival Discussions / About X-Raying
May 26, 2019, 11:57 pm
Oh boy.

@Towelie @SashaLarie

Some of you may know ochoaj (or at least have seen him around the forums). He's a mod on Survival, and has been one on and off for the past 3 years. He also happens to be a close friend of mine. He recently introduced his boyfriend, Moosican, to minecraft. Until recently, he's only played pocket edition. 2 days ago, he got Java edition and joined Survival so he could play with ochoaj.

Just less than an hour ago, a staff member approached him while he was mining and accused him of x-raying. Keep in mind, this is a player who's still trying to figure out the game controls (he even professed that to ochoaj and I in our party chat). To assume that he would even know how to install some kind of x-ray mod or texture pack is absurd. Garywb, another good friend of mine, has played minecraft for years and still doesn't know how to install mods or texture packs. Moosican asked the staff member what x-ray was, and the staff member explained it to him. Despite my objecton in chat and that of several others that he wasn't x-raying, the staff member went ahead and permabanned him.

After his ban, I decided to take a look around his mine. For obvious reasons, I won't name the warp publically. What I found certainly doesn't look like the mine of someone who was x-raying; just the mine of a someone who was told you could find diamonds at bedrock and tried to mine around the bedrock. At no point are there any upward protrusions where one might expect an x-rayer to mine if he saw diamonds. I also took note of the torches, which rubbed me the wrong way because most x-ray mods come equipped with night vision.




Seriously? The system the staff team uses to detect x-rayers is outdated and plainly isn't as thorough as it should be. For heavens sake, find a new system. Over the past couple of years, I've seen several players banned for x-ray, only for the staff team to realize they made a mistake and unban the player after several weeks of waiting. Now that's messed up. When I was a staff member, I was told that all players are innocent until proven guilty. But nowadays, I realize that that's full of shit. I just wish I came to that realization earlier.

Thanks to @blalp we may have found a way to move forward without resetting the world and without any negative consequences besides losing in-game maps.
Please stay tuned, we will continue testing and get back to you.

Thank you @SashaLarie and @Super_Boox for organizing testing sessions and helping me with testing and stuff.

I'm an avid map art creator/collector. Is there anything I can do to protect my map art from glitching out (placing them in item frames, perhaps)?

1. What is the thing that bothers you the most on Survival?
The lack of players.
2. What would you change if you were me? (tangible things only please)
I would reset the nether/end more often (although you seem to have gotten on top of that in the past couple of
months, so thank you!).

3. What is one thing that you feel is not being done often enough?
Some popular weekend events (storage wars, build contest, fridge of death, spotit) have not been hosted in years and have been pushed aside in favor of easier to host weekend events like towerspleef.
4. What is one thing that you feel is being done too often
N/A
5. What would you add to Survival? (whether it's a plugin, or a new world, please go ahead and say it)
A party area needs to be added to spawn. Every spawn before the one we have now has had one. They were great for drop parties during the SFT anniversaries.

I personally don't have an issue with navigating the forums. What I do have an issue with is finding topics that are interesting. When I first joined the forums, there were plenty of engaging posts that were worth replying to, but now, such posts are rare.

A few updates have been made to the casino. Namely, the roulette room was refurbished. It now has a gorgeous interactive betting table made up of 51 shulker boxes. We (at Ducky's Palace) believe our customers should have a luxurious experience. Additionally, all the table game rooms have been fitted with "how-to-play" guides for new players.

Are you a lucky ducky?

If you are, then a trip to /warp ducky'spalace won't be a waste of your time. A trip to our casino is an experience unlike any other. Try your luck at the slot machines. There are 6 variants, each with unique prizes (and better odds than our competitors). Are the slot machines too boring for you? Join your friends at one of several table games. Blackjack is by far the most popular, but don't be afraid to request to play a different one. I plan on adding more table games in the future.

Not a gambler? That's fine. Our massive 12,000+  block facility has something for everyone. Browse our gift shop, where you can purchase custom souvenirs and rare items you won't find anywhere else. Try one of our famous handcrafted drinks at our bar. Get down in our nightclub to the music of a LIVE DJ. Marry your significant other in our wedding chapel. Watch a LIVE performance in our theater put on by our paid actors.

Some of my favorite shows:

The Handmaids Tale (2 Seasons)- About a woman who lives in a futuristic theocratic United States where women are denied any rights
House of Cards (6 Seasons)- A political thriller about a power-hungry congressman (@ochoaj)
Designated Survivor (2 Seasons)- Another political thriller about a low-level cabinet member who becomes President after an attack on the capitol during the State of the Union
Ozark (2 Seasons)- About a man and his family who move to Southern Missouri to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel
Narcos (3 Seasons)- About the life of Pablo Escobar and attempts by the DEA to stop him
Westworld (2 Seasons)- About a futuristic wild-west theme park where people can interact with robots that look and behave exactly like humans (would recommend to Black Mirror fans)

I played it on a couple of occasions. Wasn't really my thing though.

Could you expand the borders of the end @Towelie? It's really hard to find cities.

Yay! We needed a world expansion for awhile now.
