It’s roughly one year since we initially launched Union MC! In celebration, we’re announcing one of our largest updates we’ve rolled out (not including our reset update) thus far. This includes both changes/removal of some current features and more excitingly the addition of new, neater features!
For a quick summary:
A whole new site look
New spawn! (Not quite. Our current spawn has been shrunk)
Scoreboard has been shrunk
Prestige pickaxe kits have been buffed
A->B rank now costs 30k
Flickering line surrounding donor rank prefixes has been changed
ChatColor has been removed (An attempt to make chat cleaner)
Rename command has been added
Tags have been removed from chat (They can be seen on hover of names)
We’re aware we may have removed some features which were quite well-liked, especially features relating to our chat format. We’ve decided it’s time to make it much simpler, cleaner -more aesthetically pleasing. Hopefully...
We don’t have much to announce this week; however we do have a lot planned for next weekend!
This post will address changes in pricing and sales at store.unionmc.net.
It’s no secret we’ve had large sale %’s, reaching up to 95% over the past month or two, something we wish to steer away from (for at least a while anyway). We’ve also had users concerned about our pricing of ranks (not including sale discounts).
I’m announcing a change in our store pricing, and we will be decreasing the prices of the following packages:
With this decrease in price, we will be decreasing the sale % we have currently. This doesn’t mean we won’t run sales; however this allows us to run even better sales on important dates/seasons of the year.
This change is experimental and may be subject to change in the future, should we need to do so.
Check out the new, improved...
It's been a while since we've released an update; we hope to get back on track on releasing fresh content for all users! This is a relatively small update, but we do have large plans for the next few.
Here's what's added:
Bottling XP (Temporarily disabled)
20 minutes AFK kick
Vote Party Reward Revamp
Fixed ranks in Tab/List
Scoreboard is no longer in debug
The librarian has returned! After being disabled for a few weeks while we ironed out XP issues, the librarian has returned and the costs have been revised.
Bottling XP - (This has been temporarily disabled while we revise the effect on the economy)
We've added the ability of bottling XP! Convict ranks and above are now able to convert their XP to bottle form in order to trade with others. (/bottle get)
Vote Party Reward Revamp
A long overdue change; we’ve revamped the rewards in vote party crates.
I’ve added a list of the...
This announcement serves multiple purposes. The main one being to announce the launch of a weekly update. That's right, we'll be bringing you new content weekly in the form of a thread much like this, every Saturday.
This thread unfortunately comes with less exciting news. Recently an event took place in the staff team in which a large proportion of the staff team chose to leave following recent events. We dealt with the incident and are on the right track to moving past this. As a result, I have the honor of introducing some new staff members to our team: @TrendNet -> Junior Moderator @TheGreenRocket -> Junior Moderator @TypicaIGaming -> Junior Moderator @iKindlyz -> Junior Moderator @Veizzo -> Junior Moderator
and lastly, @XxRadioactiveCOW has been promoted to Moderator.
I will continue to actively work on the staff team to ensure you are all able to...
First of all Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas and I hope we can make 2016 even better than 2015.
We will now be hosting events on UnionMC, these events may be monthly or they may be every season, I am not 100% sure on the time frame yet.
The first event is going to be a building contest! There will be a link at the bottom of this post which you can fill out. You simply need to enter your in-game name and the number of the plot you wish to enter, for example:
There will be 3 winners and the winners will be drawn on the 31st of January. First place will receive 10x Pickaxe keys and 2x Treasure keys. Second place will receive 5x Pickaxe keys and 1x Treasure key. Third place will receive 3x Pickaxe keys.
I will be looking through all the plots which get entered and will be picking my favorite three. I will also be inviting a few staff members to help me decide.
Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Dan, I'm the Manager here at Union MC now. @xAidann is also known as Community Manager now. We will both be doing our best to help out around the server.
With that aside, the main purpose of this thread is to inform you all about the new forum updates. We have also added a new way to apply for staff right here in our forums. All you need to do to apply is go to the Staff Applications sub-forum then press the "Apply For Staff" button at the top right.
With this in mind, Aidan will be changing the application system so that applications are dealt with on a monthly basis. Applications will be responded to on the first of each month (Starting from February the 1st).
On the forum side of things, We have recently upgraded our XenForo forum version to the latest version in order to bring you exciting new features. You might notice there is now...
Time for another weekly update. It's a big one.
We're reintroducing a favorite from 1.0, some performance tweaks and a whole XP revamp.
Here's a quick list of what we've added/changed:
Mine Crates (Reintroduced from 1.0)
Reset all users XP and revamped this system
Asynchronous hit detection
Explosive enchant optimizations
Users now get 3 tokens from reactions/unscrambles
All party SUITS are fixed
We've also had a burst of new players joining the server, welcome all! As you've probably been aware OhTekkers has recorded on the server.
You can also expect to see a video on CreepersEdge's channel on Sunday (tomorrow) at 8pm GMT!
Here's our changelog in detail
They're back, and improved. And you'll will 100% of the time. These crates are packed with new goodies and the classic powertools.
You can say bye to the time-wasting GUI which...
It's the 2nd week since our reset and we're continuing to add more features and exciting changes to keep all users entertained!

Golden Apple Cooldown Adjustment
We're adjusting the golden apple cooldown properties, considering if you've managed to obtain an apple, you deserve to...
Many of you might have heard rumors and sadly, but proudly, they are true. I have decided to resign from my role as the Co-Owner.
When I started my journey on the wonderful server that we today know as Union, I would have never expected to experience so many things, learn so much and meet so many people. It was certainly a fun and inspiring journey. I'm really happy with the direction Union is currently heading in and I think that it will become massive in no time. I'm satisfied of what I, what we (everyone in the community!) did together. And I'm so glad that all the hard work that Aaron and I put into raising this server didn't go to waste.
The reason for my resignation is that Aaron's vision of the server greatly differed from my own, so we had a conversation and came to a conclusion that it was for the best if we parted. I can't say I'm not sad for leaving, but I know that it's for the best.
I want to thank everyone for making my time at Union a...
It seems 2.0 has been a success and many of you seem to like it. We hope to continue the fresh nature of the server for as long as possible; so this is one of many of our update patches which we'll try to do weekly (Cannot guarantee).
This update includes:
Introduction of backpacks
Wider introduction of enchantment book system
Fully implemented tag system
Fix for picks breaking after repair
Brand new rankup crate
24 hours of 95% OFF
Teased since the opening of 2.0, they're finally here. You'll be able to purchase either a SMALL (2 rows), MEDIUM (4 rows) or LARGE (6 rows) backpack to store all kinds of junk or valuables. Items will automatically be added to your backpack when mining if your inventory is full, and /sellall works from the backpack too.
You can possess as many backpacks as you wish.
You may be curious of the effectiveness of backpacks compared to donor exclusive player vaults.
