About CubedMC

CubedMC is a Towny server that was created in June 2019 by Tquo. The goal of the server is to create a relaxing community environment by allowing players to focus on the most creative aspects of Minecraft.

We do not perform periodic resets. The goal of the server is to provide players with a permanent home for their builds. As Minecraft releases new versions, the world may be periodically expanded. The expansion history of CubedMC can be found below:

  • June 2019 (Version 1.13): Server released with 40k x 40k world border
  • July 2020 (Version 1.16): All nether worlds updated to 1.16 terrain
  • Jan 2022 (Version 1.18): Main world expanded to 70k x 70k world borders
  • Aug 2022 (Version 1.19): Main world expanded to 90k x 90k world borders

To preserve the main world, CubedMC utilizes a set of “resource” worlds that are refreshed on the 1st of every month.

Stealing items or breaking blocks from builds that belong to another player/town is strictly not allowed in any world in CubedMC. All actions performed within CubedMC are logged by the CoreProtect plugin, enabling us to quickly identify and globally restore any grief or stolen items.


Rules

Rules! Yes, we have them. It is your responsibility to know the server rules. We’re a community of players who’d wish to not return to griefed builds and/or stolen items. Feel free to ask any questions. However, if you ask a question that is answered in the server rules, you will likely be reminded to ensure you know them.

The server rules can be found on our website at https://wiki.cubedmc.org/rules


Getting Started

Step 1: Say “Hello!” After all, we are a community server.

  • You can also join the discord using the invitation link provided within the "/discord" command.

Step 2: Join a job. This will allow you to get paid for the actions you do on the server. There is no downside to joining a job. You are not locked into a job, and can pick a different job later if you choose. (However, note that doing that at higher levels is not advisible. You lose half of your current XP in that job if you leave it)

  • You can do /jobs browse to see all of the jobs in CubedMC.
  • In most cases “Miner” or “Woodcutter” are the best jobs for new players. You can join a job by doing "/jobs join (jobname)" (i.e. "/jobs join Miner").
  • As you progress through the free ranks, you can be a member of more than 1 job at a time.

Step 3: You are ready to start playing Minecraft! You can do /rtp to get started in CubedMC. Find some starting gear and get a begin your adventure.

  • Tip: No mobs spawn in the resource world, so you can use that world to get a peaceful start. Just be sure to head back to the main overworld to start your base, because the resource world is reset every month.

Step 4: Head back to the overworld with /rtp, and find a nice spot to build a home. You can also begin looking for a town to join!

  • You can protect your items by placing a sign on any chest/furnace. Be sure that you are not crouching when you place the sign.
  • Claim your area by creating a town. (Note: Even if you plan to play on your own, you would still create a "town". It is 100% free to make town.)
  • If you’d like to join an existing town, you'll need to be recruited by one. To get recruited, join our discord (You can receive an invite link by doing /discord). In our discord you’ll find a channel called “#town-recruitment”. Make a post introducing yourself, and say that you’d like to join a town. You may not get a reply immediately, but you will certainly be on your way towards finding a home in our community.

Step 5: Once you have a base started, you should do /sethome to allow you to teleport back at any time during your time on CubedMC. You’ll be able to return to this location any time by doing /home.

  • If you have created/joined a town, you can return to town with the "/town spawn" command. This essentially creates an additional home location.
  • As you progress through the free ranks, you can have more than 1 home location saved at a time.

Jobs

Jobs are the primary source of money in CubedMC. Jobs allow you to get paid for performing specific tasks in the server. The maximum Job level for any job is level 75. At level 75 of a job, you will earn about 2.1x more income than level 1.

If you happen to be a new player, joining a job (likely Miner or Woodcutter) should be the first thing that you do so that you can begin to start earning money.

Commands:

  • /jobs browse
    • Opens a GUI where you can see all the available jobs, and their specific payout information.
  • /jobs info (jobname)
    • If you’d prefer not to utilize the GUI, you can view job information here as well.

Shops

This section overviews the various shop types in CubedMC.

Shop

You can buy/sell an unlimited number of items at the /shop. Be sure to get familiar with these prices, as they dictate the price of goods around the server. Not all items are eligible to be sold to the server shop.

  • /shop
    • Opens the server shop.
  • /sell handall
    • Sells all items in your inventory that match the item you are currently holding (i.e If you have 3 stacks of stone in your inventory, and you hold a single stone block and do this command, ALL stacks of stone in your inventory will be sold).
  • /sell all
    • Sells all eligible items from your inventory to the server shop.

Pshop

Allows players to put any item up for sale from anywhere around the server. For players experienced with other servers, this system works similarly to the “Auction House” plugin. A player can only have 20 items on the PlayerShop at a time. Each item will be unlisted if the item does not sell in 30 days. The player can recollect any expired items from the /pshop GUI.

  • /pshop
    • Opens the PlayerShop GUI to view what’s for sale.
  • /pshop sell (quantity) (price)
    • Perform this command while holding the item you wish to sell to put the item on the /pshop.
    • If the item does not get sold after 30 days, you will be able to collect the item from the pshop GUI.

ChestShop

Because players can only have 20 items available on the PlayerShop at a time, most players utilize Chestshops in conjunction with PlayerWarps (or even clever use of /t spawn) to construct their storefronts.

To make a ChestShop, write the following on a sign:

  • First Line: Write your username
  • Second Line: The amount of items you wish to sell
  • Third Line: This line dictates how much items within the chest will buy/sell for.
    • Possible combination examples:
      • “B 15” Players will be able to buy items from the chest for $15.
      • “S 15” Players will be able to sell items to the chest for $15.
      • “B 10:5 S” Means players will buy from the chest for $10, and will be able to sell items to the chest for $5. Prices must be separated by a colon.
  • Fourth Line: Put an “?” here. Press “Done” to complete writing the sign. Hold the item that you wish you sell at this ChestShop, and right click the sign. The “?” will update to the reflect the item you were just holding.

With the ChestShop sign below, a person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from Phoenix616.


MCMMO

MCMMO is the #1 Minecraft RPG plugin, and allows players to train skills and use abilities. There are 15 trainable skills that power various active abilities.

Note: MCMMO levels in CubedMC are based on a 1-100 scale NOT 1-1000. If you’re used to a base 1000 system, simply divide everything you’re used to by 10.

Players can also join MCMMO parties to unlock various perks. Parties “level up” over time and when party members gain MCMMO xp. Perks include: Party Chat (Level 0), Party Teleport (Level 2), Item Share (Level 8), XP Share (Level 10).

Generally Useful/Common Commands:

  • /(skillname)
    • Provides information regarding that MCMMO skill.
  • /mcstats
    • Displays your MCMMO levels.
  • /mccooldowns
    • Displays the cooldown time remaining before you may use abilities.
  • /mcrank
    • Show your toplist ranking in each skill.
  • /mctop (skillname)
    • Provides a toplist of the top ranked players in that skill.

Towny

Towny is an extremely customizable solution to micro-community management and grief prevention. Towny handles all claiming in CubedMC

Joining A Town

Joining a town can be a great way to experience CubedMC! If you’re new to the server I’d recommend making a post in our discord server (Join our discord with /discord) and making a post introducing yourself a few sentences in the “#looking-for-a-town” channel. You can also see if anyone online has a town that you could join, however waiting for invitation from an engaging mayor/town will greatly improve your time on the server.

Creating A Town

Creating a town is a good option if you’d like to play by yourself, with your group of friends, or you’d like to make the next big town on Cubed. Towns in CubedMC are free to create and have no upkeep costs. However, you’ll need to /rankup to “Citizen” to create a town, which can be done fairly quickly with /jobs or by voting on the websites in /vote.

If you’re new to Towny, the commands below should be enough to get you and a couple friends started in your town.

  • /town new (Town_Name)
    • Will create your town, and claim the chunk you’re currently standing in for the town.
  • /town claim
    • Claim chunks that are adjacent to other claimed chunks.
  • /town invite (username)
    • Invite another player to join your town.
  • /town set rank add (username) (rank)
    • Promote a player onto your town's staff.
    • Possible ranks are recruiter, assistant, and comayor.
  • /town spawn
    • Teleport to your town's spawn point.

Mayor's Guide To Growth

Using the Towny plugin allows community focused players the ability to form their own communities and make meaningful lasting friendships. While some players prefer to take a more single-player style, there are always players looking to join active communities and meet new people! If you’re a new/aspiring mayor, it is my hope that these tips will help serve as a guide to help make the most of your experience on the server.

  • Step 1: Politely and periodically see if new players are looking to join a town.
    • It takes time to build a community. Neither Rome or CubedMC was built in a day, and nor will your town. By simply asking “Hey are any new players looking for a town”, you will slowly but surely begin to build a budding little town. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the #town-recruitment section of the discord for players looking for a home.
  • Step 2: Provide players with a quality experience.
    • Give players a reason to join your town instead of somebody else’s town. In the early days of your town this can be things like a welcoming gift, a town farm, a storage/armory for town members, or a town discord. As your town grows, you can hold periodic town contests or events. Don’t be afraid to invite other players to your town’s events. Your community experience does not have to be limited strictly to players in your town!
  • Step 3: Stay active within your community.
    • In any video game, people have a tendency to lose interest and play other games. A town has never really died until it’s mayor/leaders have gone inactive. Simply logging in every so often to check in and chat really goes a long way towards the long term health of your community, especially when combined with Step 1. Creating a discord server for your town to allow players to stay connected, even when they are not able to play Minecraft, is a fantastic way to keep players updated and engaged.

If your mayor has gone inactive, you can create a ticket in the CubedMC discord to talk to staff about holding a vote/discussion for a new town mayor.

Nations

Nations are groups of towns that have joined together. Nations are creating when two mayors/towns join together, and can be comprised of an unlimited amount of towns. While players can only belong to a single town, clever use of towny permissions can emulate the player belonging to multiple towns. Being in and growing a nation will also gain bonus chunks.

Based on the size of the nation you’re in, you will receive more bonus chunks, as follows:

  • 0-9 Nation Residents: 10 Chunks
  • 10-19 Nation Residents: 20 Chunks
  • 20-29 Nation Residents: 40 Chunks
  • 30-39 Nation Residents: 60 Chunks
  • 40-59 Nation Residents 100 Chunks
  • 60+ Nation Residents: 140 Chunks


[Private] Signs

You can place signs onto blocks like chests and furnaces to prevent any unwanted players from accessing your items. Although grief is not allowed regardless of if you have protected your items, doing this prevents you from having to worry about having your items stolen and/or having to wait for a staff member to resolve your issue.

How to use [Private] signs:

  • Place a chest.
  • Without crouching, right click on the block while holding a sign.
    • You can use a sign to protect: anvils, barrels, beacons, brewing stands, chests, dispensers, doors, droppers, enchanting tables, fence gates, furnaces/blast furnaces, hoppers, jukeboxes, shulker boxes, trapdoors, trapped chests.
  • If you want to allow another player to use your chest, you can do so by adding their name onto the sign.
    • To do this, right click on the [Private] sign and do /blocklocker (lineNumber) (value). (i.e If you have a brand new private sign and do /blocklocker 3 Notch, you will allow “Notch” to access your chest.
    • You can add more users by adding more names on the private sign. If you run out of space on a sign, you can place another sign on any side of the chest.
  • You can also add non-username tags to the signs.
    • [Redstone] - Allows entities like hoppers to add/remove items from the chest
    • [Party_Name] - Allows the chest to be accessed by anyone within your MCMMO Party. (Replace “Party_Name” with the name of your party)
    • [Town_Name] - Allows the chest to be accessed by anyone within the specified town. (Replace “Town_Name” with the name of the town)
    • [Nation_Name] - Allows the chest to be accessed by anyone within the specified nation. (Replace “Nation_Name” with the name of the nation)
    • [Timer:X] - Where X is a number from 0 to 9, placing this on a door/trapdoor will automatically close the door after the specified amount of seconds.

To create a tube you will need, crying obsidian, sticky piston(s), regular piston(s), a good amount of glass, signs, chests, and a stick.

  • Stick: This is the control stick; it is responsible for interacting with the control block.
  • Sticky Piston: For tube inputs. This is where the items will be sent from.
  • Piston: For tube outputs. This is where the items will be sent.
  • Chest: Where the input/output items are stored.
  • Glass: The tube. A connection between pistons.
  • Crying Obsidian: This is the “control block”. This is used to start or turn off a tube system.

How to create a Tube:

  1. Start by placing all the chests in their desired position, keeping in mind that you’ll need space near the chest to place a piston and the glass.
  2. Place the control block. It must be touching the glass in your Tube system.
  3. On a side of the control block (crying obsidian) place a sign and write “[tube:scan]” on line 1 of the sign.
  4. On another side of the control block, or a different control block, place a sign and write “[tube:remove]” on line 1 of the sign.
  5. Go to each input piston (sticky piston) and place a sign that says “[tube:send]” on the line 1 of the sign.
  6. Go to each output piston (normal piston) place a sign that reads:
    • Line 1 of the sign: “[Tube]” if you plan to have a filter, in any other case you need to use “[tube:overflow]” (“Overflow” outputs can receive any item that’s unspecified by other filtered Tube’s in the system.)
    • Line 3 of the sign: “?”, if you're adding a filter to the output chest.
      • After placing the sign, hold the item you wish to filter and right click on the sign. This will auto-fill the item ID.
  7. Holding a stick, right click the [tube:scan] sign on the control block to create the tube (AKA as a “grid”).
    • While the tube is created you cannot change any blocks/filters, you have to remove the tube first. To remove right click the “[tube:remove]” sign.
  8. Place your items into the input chest, and place a lever on the send piston flick it a few times. Items should be sent along the tube system every on/off pulse.

Mapart

Many CubedMC players create mapart’s to utilize as decoration within their builds. An entire world has been created to allow Mapartist’s to create their work without impeding on space within the overworld. You can find this world by doing /mapart. Non-mapart builds are not permitted in the Mapart world and will be removed if found.

CubedMC players are allowed to use a client side mod called Litematica (aka Schematica) as a guide to create any build, and EZplace to aide in their construction. However, players may not use programs/macros that automate this task any further.

A guide to installing the litematica mod can be found here.

Mob/Farm Limits

Nearly anything in multiplayer Minecraft can cause lag in excessive amounts. Most servers operate under a handshake agreement that all users will keep their farm's redstone/entities to a reasonable level.

In our server rules, Rule 1.8 asks that you be considerate of your farm's mob count and redstone usage.

On CubedMC we utilize various limits and action restrictions in an attempt to ensure that all players can enjoy a lag-free experience.

Server Limits

  • Mob Tracking
    • Mobs on CubedMC cannot be not pushed/tracked through nether portals.
  • AFK Machines
    • AFK Pools do not work on CubedMC. There are two AFK checks that run simultaneously to detect players that aren’t playing. Using macros/programs to get around this check is not allowed.
  • TNT Dupers
    • TNT Dupers do not work on CubedMC.
  • Auto-Fishing
    • Auto fishing pools do not work on CubedMC.
  • Redstone Limits
    • There are not many automated redstone limitations on CubedMC, but we do ask you to be courteous with your redstone design so that it does not cause server lag. For 99% of users this is not a problem. There are a maximum of 80 observers that can be placed within a chunk, and a maximum of 200 pistons and sticky pistons.

Note: CubedMC does not alter any vanilla redstone related tick rates, such as hopper checks and hopper transfers. However, intricate timing systems can break on multiplayer servers if/when the server experiences tick loss.

Entity Limits

Most lag in modern Minecraft servers is due to ticking entities. For this reason, select entities on the server are limited to specified amounts. When the amount of mobs surpasses this amount, a mob within the chunk is removed from existence at random.

Mobs that have been given a nametag are exempt from removal. The primary intention of this is to protect mobs that may be important to you like pets or villagers. This is obviously a direct loophole in the mob limit, and can get out of hand if exploited.

Staff may remove your build if it is significantly hindering server performance and the experience for other players, however this is exceedingly rare.
