This establishment is Ducky's Palace-approved.
Thanks for everything you've done for SFT. Hopefully you'll swing by on occasion, even if it's just for a "hello."

Lately, I have been accused of not including the large jackpot prizes in the slot machines. This accusation is 100% false. The manager+ team has investigated this accusation and have falsified it. From day one, I have been committed to an open and fair business model. Your chances of winning the jackpot and mega jackpot may not be enormously high (how else would I turn a profit), but they are there and they are (what I believe to be) fair.
Having to /login, as Steve mentioned, solves this issue. It only takes a second or two to type your password.
The tournament is tomorrow. Hope many of you can make it!

Happy Birthday!!
Hey guys! On Tuesday, July 23, at Noon - 3PM EST (5PM - 8PM GMT), @Beanz_ and I are going to be holding a poker tournament. The game will be Texas Hold'em and will be held inside the glamorous Ducky's Palace. You'll need at least 30k to play, but up to an additional 100k may be needed if you opt for a 1-time buy in when/if you go bust. The rules will not be explained, but a quick visual demonstration will be given before the game (to show how cards are dealt and disposed of, how to place chips on the table, and so on). In addition to winning all the cash, the winner will also be given a custom trophy and a bust in the casino 'Hall of Fame.' Further information will be provided closer to the tournament date.

Anyways, I hope to see many of you there!

If @Towelie can win at /warp DuckysPalace, you can win too!

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.


 :diamond: You'll need :diamond:

-1 Silk Touch Pickaxe
-1 Fortune 3 Pickaxe
-1 Shovel
-Glowstone Helmet (so you can see in the dark)
-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)
-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
-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.


:fish: You'll need :fish:

-A good fishing rod (having mending on it will make it indestructable)
-A sword
-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.

Cool place! ;D

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)?

Ducky's Palace is currently closed and undergoing minor renovations to enhance the visitor experience. We'll reopen on May 20.

Happy Birthday Darren :heart: 
Oooh! I'll be there  ;D
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
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.
