Hello community!
This is a relatively small update aimed mainly at beginners.
We're introducing a quest system, where users can complete quests in order to receive rewards, this also acts as an interactive server tutorial/guide. All users are welcome to complete the quests, however rewards may not be as helpful as they are to new players.

Open your quest menu with /quest - quite simple as that.

We're also adding a 95% OFF SALE for this weekend only! - Store items will be as low as they've ever been.

Thanks for playing Union MC :)

Hello!

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...

Hello community.
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:
  • All Ranks/Upgrades
  • Token packages
  • Crate keys
  • Spawners
  • Personal mines
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...

Hello community!
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:
  • Librarian
  • Bottling XP (Temporarily disabled)
  • 20 minutes AFK kick
  • Vote Party Reward Revamp
  • Fixed ranks in Tab/List
  • Scoreboard is no longer in debug
Librarian
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...

Hello Community,

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...

Hello Community!

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.

This is your last chance to take advantage of...

Hello community,

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...
