It's Friday and we're releasing an update which relates to Prison, newly released Skyblock and the server as a whole!
Firstly, we've introduced a new way to receive bonus rewards in-game. This is achieved through visiting our new http://unionmc.rewardcraft.net/ site! Simply engage in an ad (whether it's a site, video etc) and you'll receive in-game items!
We are not responsible for the content on adverts shown. All adverts are managed by third parties and are completely random. The current rewards are as follows:
$175 In-game money
1x Redstone Dust
12x Bottle of Enchanting
2x Vote Key
4x Enchantment Tokens
You can engage in ads up to 4 times within 24 hours.
I would also like to state that voting has changed! You will no longer get rewards for voting if you are offline! You MUST be online on the server you wish to receive the rewards on (Prison...
I'm writing to announce that Skyblock has just been released, along with our brand new hub! We’ve spent the last weeks ensuring these servers are complete and we’re ready to deploy them to our public playerbase.
The hub is relatively straight forward; select which server you wish to connect to. (Prison or Skyblock). Where Skyblock involves surviving with minimal materials solo or with some friends! (Use /island to get started!)
Below is some renders of our new Hub. A rather large area for users to explore!
Furthermore Skyblock may have bugs/glitches and we’d appreciate if you reported these at your earliest convenience.
I’ve added Skyblock-related packages to Store.UnionMC.net too, along with a 60% off sale on all Skyblock purchases! As Skyblock has been released earlier than planned, all beta testers will receive the first rank free of...
Update #1: We've deployed Early-access 2 days early. We'll be officially releasing on the 8th of June (2 days earlier)
Summer is almost here! As you’re probably aware if you read this thread’s title, yes, we’re announcing the addition of Skyblock to Union MC (for a second, hopefully more successful time).
We’ve been working hard over the past weeks in order to bring a well-made Skyblock gamemode to the server - and it’s definitely a great improvement over our last attempt back in June 2015.
We plan to release Skyblock and a Hub around the 10th of June…
However, we will be accepting up to 20 beta testers for Skyblock from the 1st of June. In order to participate in 10 days of early access as a beta tester it is required you purchase beta access ($25) from http://store.unionmc.net – you’ll be instantly whitelisted and get a head start over others!
If you didn't notice, the server had a whitelist on for the past 2 and a half hours. Sorry about that!
We originally planned for our maintenance to take ~30 minutes, it wasn't going so well so it took a little longer.
Anyways, onto the new stuff. That's right! Aren't we just awesome?
We've setup an awesome way to link your in-game Minecraft account, and your forum account!
So for all those whacky forum users with your crazy names, we now know who you are!
To get started, just type /linkaccount and then follow the instructions in-game. It's super easy, all you have to do is click a link!
Once you've linked your account, on your profile and posts there will be a new box with your Minecraft in-game name and your skin's head
I'm amazing, I know, no need to fuss over it too much
We're hosting another Drop Party tomorrow, at 5PM EST! I'll...
Alright guys! I know many of you look like this right now:
But yes, the server is down! But it's for a good reason!
The people have spoken! And we've listened.
We heard lots of you complaining about the lag, so in an attempt to fix said lag, we're moving to a better machine.
What did you say?!?!?!?!
Yes that's right! New machine, which will hopefully (praise be to the Lord(s) above) fix that annoying as hell lag!
We're now into maintenance mode, and the server will look like this for you:
We don't expect the maintenance to take too long, we did transferred most of the static files (stuff that rarely changes) yesterday, meaning we're just moving data like your player data, rank, balance, etc. We're estimating about an hour, however that may change! Hopefully shorter!
After hearing that news, I'm sure many of you are...
I'm announcing quite a few changes we've made today.
Firstly, for this weekend the chances of getting a Tier 4 or Tier 5 pickaxe from the Pickaxe Crate have doubled!
This means you're more likely to win a better pick this weekend than you are at other times. This will end at 12:00am GMT on Monday Morning (7pm EST Sunday)
You can also take advantage of the 95% OFF sale @ http://store.unionmc.net!
We've also added Cratekey bundles to the server store! You can purchase each key in bundles of 5x or 32x and get better value for your purchase (discount).
We may consider adding a 64x bundle.
Finally, we've adjusted Kingpin's price, and is now decreased to $50 while this 95% sale lasts. We felt this was necessary as it was previously double the price of Titan without double the perks.
We'd also like to welcome @Meewoo to the staff team as a newly recruited Junior Mod!
Furthermore @CharlieeeMC and...
I'm writing this to announce that we're hosting a Huge Drop Party on Saturday 30th April at 3pm EST (8pm GMT).
As we've currently got on-going advertisements (Minecraftservers.org slot #3) we expect a large turn-out over the weekend, and will be dropping much more goodies than we usually do.
Here's a list which includes, but is not limited to, the items we will be dropping:
$25-30 Store Credit (multiple $5 codes & $10 codes)
Tier 5 Pickaxes (Including Stratum)
The Drop Party will be hosted in the shop (/warp shop) - You'll also be able to use /warp DP
Don't forget, you can also take full advantage of the current 95% OFF sale @ store.unionmc.net
Our new Kingpin rank is as low as $63, or a $30 upgrade from Titan.
We acknowledge the scheduled time of the event may be unsuitable for users in different timezones, but we base these times around our peak hours, when most players are available.
We hope you can make...
We haven’t released a new donor rank in quite some time, and feel this is an appropriate time for a refresh. Our focus is providing our supporters with perks and rewards they deserve, however we do encourage users to upgrade and help us fund some exciting advertisements and updates for over summer.
The Kingpin rank inherits all aspects of the Titan rank, and is also bundled with the following:
/autorankup (Toggle this to get ranked up to the next rank as soon as you have enough money)
Bypass teleportation cooldown
/potionstack (stack potions up to 64 - 30min cooldown)
/ptime (set your client’s time on the server. Cosmetical feature, does not affect rules like mob spawning)
/pweather (set your client’s weather on the server. Cosmetical feature, does not affect rain/snow forming)
It’s been quite some time since I’ve been excited to introduce some new enjoyable content. We’ve been working over the past few days on introducing some new fun features for the server.
This update contains the following:
A NEW Tier 5 Pickaxe
Explosive Enchantment Changes
It’s been a topic we’ve been interested in for a while. We’ve seen that this has had positive feedback and decided to introduce it. All mobs within a 3 block radius of the same type will now stack together to form one entity which represents all the stacked mobs.
Here’s what won’t stack:
Villagers where less than 10 more are around (in order to allow iron golems to spawn)
Baby mobs won’t be merged with their adult form
Colored sheep won’t merge with sheep of other colors
