Competitions & Events / Noobween 2019 - Candy Trades & More
« on: 29 Oct 2019, 21:11:59 »

As announced last week, the annual Noobween (Halloween) Candies are now dropping as you do things around Noobstown! The trades to exchange in those Candies are now available at /warp noobween; the trades are spread around the area so you'll have to go exploring to find exactly what you can get. There are several unique heads that are only available through this event, plus you can trade the Candies directly for Nbz! We're also open to feedback, so if you'd like the trades adjusting or think something fun could be a new Candy trade then PM me and we can discuss! There is no rush in trading early; the trades will be available for several weeks!



In addition to the Candy trades the walled town at /warp noobween is holding a number of secrets; including 30 secret named signs! There will be a bonus reward for those who find all of the signs (or if no one gets them all then those who find the most). These signs are spread throughout the town, inside and outside the walls, on roofs and underground; you'll have to explore the area in depth.



To take part in the challenge of finding the signs:
  • Explore the town completely as much as you want. If you see any of the secret signs (see example above) note down the number and the text on the bottom line of the sign.
  • Once you've found as many signs as you think you can find (or all 30) just PM me with the names on the bottom of each of the 30 signs and their number. This sample list might help in the message:

    Don't worry if you can't find them all, if no one else does either then those who find the most will win the prize!

You have until the 30th of November to PM me with your finds.

Please try to avoid sharing the locations or names of signs with others as this just ruins their chance to explore and enjoy that! Any posts giving away answers will be removed; your solution needs to be private messaged to me (ItsLawrence) on the site, you can do this by clicking here.



The current 2x mcMMO XP will continue through to Halloween itself!



Best of luck for all of the Candy and Secret Sign finds! Happy Halloween!

Competitions & Events / Noobween 2019 - Candies Arrive!
« on: 23 Oct 2019, 21:11:49 »

As is normal around this time of year on Noobstown we've got candy dropping as you do things around the server! This year there are just 10 flavours to collect!

Simply play as you normally would and keep an eye out for the random candy drops! The candy can then be collected and traded in for rewards (including rare heads and money) at /warp noobween (Trades will open this coming Tuesday, there will be another announcement once they're available!) Be sure to try a number of different mcMMO skills and in different worlds to see what you can get ;); there are different candies for doing different things. The candy drops will continue on well past Halloween; into November!

This year we're also counting exactly how many of each flavour you collect! This means the person who collects the most in total for both the rest of October and then November will win a bonus special Top of the Month reward. Additionally the person who collects the most of each flavour will get a special gift after the Noobween fun has ended!

There will also be some other small Noobween challenges coming next week at /warp noobween (An announcement will be made once they're open)! Plus it's also 2x mcMMO XP all the way until Halloween itself!

Site Announcements / Unexpected Site Downtime
« on: 4 Jun 2019, 20:25:15 »
Some of you may have noticed that over the last few days access to this site has been limited due to site server issues. I apologise to anyone who was unable to access the site over the weekend; things should hopefully be back to normal now.

These problems began a few days ago and continued over the weekend; they were caused by issues with the datacentre that our website hosting provider uses, and their team worked to resolve them as soon as possible. The site was simply not being displayed correctly due to network issues they were experiencing. At the time the problem was completely out of my control unfortunately.

Moving forward I will look into mitigation to try and prevent such a long period of downtime happening again, including potentially adjusting the hosting solution for the site.

Once again I'm sorry for the downtime; but things should be back now! If you notice any further problems with this you're welcome to email me at [email protected].

Server Announcements / Minecraft 1.14 Information
« on: 24 Apr 2019, 22:11:00 »

Earlier this week Mojang announced the release of Minecraft 1.14; as with all Minecraft updates we will NOT be supporting 1.14 yet on Noobstown. (We're still on 1.12.2 for now!) Please DO NOT UPDATE YOUR MINECRAFT CLIENT or select specifically to continue playing in 1.12.2 if you want to continue playing on Noobstown. We will eventually be working to fully support directly 1.14 but this isn't likely to be happen immediately so if you want to continue playing on Noobstown for now don't update until we announce it's recommended to do so.

If you've automatically updated to 1.14 and still want to play on Noobstown.com you'll need to use a 1.12.2 profile. To do so in the Minecraft Launcher select "Launch Options" and then click "Add New". From there against "Version" is a big selection list of all the different versions; to play on Noobstown it's recommended you use "1.12.2".



From there then back on the main screen of the Launcher select the up arrow to the right of the big play button, and select the new profile you just made.

Competitions & Events / Happy Easter 2019!
« on: 19 Apr 2019, 22:01:29 »

The annual Easter Egg Hunt on Noobstown is now under way!

Over the next few weeks, when you're on the server, a message will randomly appear in chat when an Easter Egg (or other Easter related thing) spawns near you. You then have several minutes to run around and try to find the Easter Egg before it disappears. If you do find it, simply click it and you'll be given the Egg as a collectable head. Be on the look out too, because there might also be other Eggs around at random, even when you don't get the message.

This year different types of egg will spawn in different biomes throughout the worlds, so be sure to explore around if you want to collect them all. There are different types of eggs based on the biome it appears in. There are a total of 19 different things to collect (including 17 Eggs). If you manage to get all 19 from this year, keep hold of them and let me know (PM me or reply to this post); there's a bonus special prize for collecting them all! I'll leave exploring the different biomes up to you all, but if assistance is needed finding some of the different types then after a few days I'll post a list of which biomes each egg type spawns in.

It's also 2x mcMMO XP from now and throughout the rest of Easter weekend!

I hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Server Announcements / Top of the Month - mcMMO Changes
« on: 1 Feb 2019, 19:14:44 »

Based on feedback the Top of the Month categories relating to mcMMO have now been changed; starting from this month (February) all mcMMO categories (the total and each skill) will now use mcMMO XP directly instead of the levels gained.

All mcMMO Level categories have now been replaced with an equivalent mcMMO XP category; including Power Level which has been replaced with an XP total.

As January's contest has already finished it will use the old levels categories still, but moving forward (including February) we'll be using mcMMO XP instead! Moving forward the rewards relating to mcMMO (trades at /warp top) will be adjusted to the new XP categories too, plus new trades will be available to begin with to allow you to switch from the old levels rewards to the new XP one.

Based on feedback, hopefully this will more fairly reflect the effort put in to each of the skills. We're always open to further feedback and suggestions and will continue to see how the different categories work.



The Top 10s of January's contests will be announced this coming weekend.

« on: 30 Nov 2018, 22:50:44 »

Starting from the 1st of December we'll be continuing our annual tradition of the daily rewards and advent countdown to Christmas (25th).

This year the gifts are spread around a special Noobmas town (Merrytown), you'll need to search around the town at /warp noobmas to find the gift chest each day.

Every day (until the 25th) at /warp noobmas look around the town to find the free gift for that day (it'll be clearly labelled with a floating message above it)! Just click the gift chest to claim the daily reward. Each day the new gift will open at midnight GMT (UK time) with different rewards! You need to make sure you open each box on the day it's related to otherwise you'll miss out though! There's a countdown timer above each box and at spawn so you know how long until the next one will open!

Additionally this year there is a bonus reward available for all of you who collect the gift on all 25 days; each gift will include a Token which can be traded in each adding up to a special bonus reward. You need them all to get that reward. The trades for those are again in the town at /warp noobmas.

Plus there's a new Noobmas quest available! It's also in the town at /warp noobmas! Can you help the villagers with their organisation of a special celebration for their town? Get started at /warp noobmas and using /kit theme!



PLUS it'll be 2x mcMMO XP all this weekend!

Competitions & Events / Noobween Mystery Solved
« on: 29 Nov 2018, 21:36:00 »

The Noobween Mansion Mystery has been solved...by a number of you!

The mystery involved determining who killed Mr Bones; including establishing the weapon, motive, incriminating clue and time of visit for each of the 5 suspects!

A number of you got it; the killer was Mr Brew! Plus the details of each are as follows:

  • Mr Brew used the Diamond Sword to act Revenge, he left behind a Trail of Sugar after visiting Mr Bones at 9:05pm.
  • Mr Magic had the Lava, his potential motive was that he Needed Bones, he left behind a Footprint after his meeting at 11:55pm.
  • Mrs Spell had the TNT, she wanted to Steal Candies, she left behind a Glass Bottle and visited Mr Bones at 11:25pm.
  • Miss West had the Poison Potion, she wanted to Steal Diamonds, but she left behind some Spider Eyes, during her visit at 10:30pm.
  • Mr Wicked had an Iron Axe, he wanted to Take the Mansion from Mr Bones, he left behind the Note, and visited Mr Bones at 10:45pm.

Here is the solution in the grid, for those of you who used it:


To solve the solution you needed to both work out the correct killer and figure out each different part of the mystery. The following people did that:
For those of you who submitted a solution but aren't listed (didn't quite get it all right), if you'd like to know where you were slightly off then let me know.

Rewards for taking part and prizes for those who solved the whole mystery will be given out this coming weekend!

I hope you enjoyed the slightly different challenge for Noobween this year, I'd love to hear your feedback or suggestions regarding it, and if you'd like something similar or not in the future.

EDIT: Rewards have now been given out, please see the reply below.



The Noobween Candies have also now stopped dropping. The trades will continue to be available for a few more days at /warp noobween, so be sure to exchange them in to avoid missing out.

Plus be sure to check on the server again on Saturday and throughout December as our annual Noobmas Advent begins on the 1st! More information will be posted tomorrow!
