| TheFakeWorld is Back!
What's new and improved, and what's old and removed?
To start off before I write any of the changes, I would like to let everybody know we tried as hard as we could to keep everything the same, what we can guarantee is that your items, builds, and general vanilla-based stuff on the server are safe and sound!
Some of our plugins we used to use on TFW have been kept along this crazy ride as long as they can, but due to Java 16 and other reasons, some of these have broken, so we have replaced most of them with better functionality.
Without further ado, here are the major changes:
Server Update 1
What has been done so far?
What has yet to be done?
The Pondered Options
(as best as I can keep them)
Before I start listing the options I want to provide to everybody about what be of the MC server soon, I do want to mention a few things that will happen no matter what option is chosen.
First and foremost, the world download will come out, this will be avaliable to anybody for download for as long as we can host a link to download it from or have a file to share on our computers, we want to make sure that everybody can open TFW at any time to enjoy the memories made on the server.
Secondly, any talk about a reset (excluding full resets) will most likley loosley follow the guidelines of this post made a few months ago. I will update that if that is the decided outcome most likley in a completley new post so there is no confusion.
Third, I (alkalinekats) will now be running the MC Server, and 1Storm will only be running TFW Bot. This is not to say that 1Storm cannot help, but he will not be the first line of contact you should go to about MC server problems.
These options will be rated on my personal scale of stability technilogically and sometimes financially 1 being the worst, 5 being the best
Along with any of these options, a few decisions must be made that can make or break quite a bit of the server.
The LWC Guide (How to Modify Locked Inventories)
If you are sharing a base with your friends, this can be extremley usefull, along with public town structures like a town storage.
As you may have noticed already, every time you place down a chest, you get a line of green text in your chat that says :
This is made this way so that every chest you place can be protected in case someone might greif your base looking for items, it is also a way to make sure that mobs also have no effect on your precious items.
You can read the commands and descriptions below to learn how to change the lock types on your chests :
/unlock : If you want to make your chest accessible by anyone, or apply any other locks, you have to run this command
/lock : Lock an unlocked chest
/cpublic : After you run /unlock, you can put this protection on a chest to make it accesible by anyone, but not destroyable by anyone.
/cdonation : After you run /unlock, this will make your chest a donation chest, usefull for mailboxes in a town and donation chests in a shop.
/cpassword [password] : After you run /unlock, you can run this to make your chest password protected, so anybody with the password can unlock it.
/lwc -u [password] : This is the command you run to unlock a password protected chest
/cmodify [playername] or -[playername] : To add or remove player from your locked chest
/cinfo : Used to find the player who owns the protection and what protection it is.
/cremoveall : Rremove all locks on all protections This is Irreversable and Not Recommended
/chopper [on/off] : To allow hoppers to access or not acces your chests but for them to still be locked.
Welcome to The Survival Guide
A guide made for those looking for a way to kick off their adventure in TheFakeWorld Survival
Welcome to TheFakeWorld! In this guide you will learn the major and quite a few minor features of our Survival server. Hopefully this guide will teach you all the basics you need to know to enjoy your experience on our server!
Section 1 : How to get started
So, you have loaded into the survival spawn for the first time, here you can find many of our server warps, NPCs, information, and even how to get to this guide. Right ahead of you at /spawn is the opening out into the Spawn Jungle. There is a protection region around this area so we can keep it looking nice, but if you continue out further until the text on your screen displays that you left spawn, you can finally get to the buildable area.
If you would like to build next to spawn you can, but because we have a massive 2,000,000 x 2,000,000 world, you can find endless places to build by using the command /rtp, it will randomly teleport you to a place in the world in which you can explore to find a great place to build your new home.
Once you have been exploring for a while using the /rtp command and you find the perfect place to settle down, the next step is to run the command /sethome [homename] so if you happen to go away from the area you found for your house, you can return to it at a later point in time. Once as you have done that, you have two options to gather resources, the first is to clear your area to prepare for your house, so deforesting the area around your house so you can build it. The other is to go to /warp resource. In this place, you can mine anything to your heart's content and you can also /rtp as well if you need specific biome based resources. Once as you run /warp resource, you will be teleported to a building and all you have to do is walk in and wait a couple seconds.
Elite Mobs will spawn in the resource world which will be based on the armour you are wearing and tools you have in your inventory, if you are just starting out, they will be low level and have few abilities, the higher tier armour, the harder they get, but the better the reward. In the resource world, you can also find custom structures that may contain really good items.
Once as you have collected the resources for your house you can start on building it, making it the way you want. Now when you place chests and/or inventory based items, they will lock so no one else can open them (If you would like to know how to configure your locked inventories, you can read this guide)
Now that you have built your house, I would recommend claiming the area around it so no one, other than the people you invite. You can claim land by running /land. I would recommend the TNT plot since it is decently large for 15K, and you also start with 20K so it is affordable!
If you run /land after claiming your region, you GUI should then look like this, you can invite people under the steve head, set your land spawn under the ender pearl (you can teleport back to this by doing /land home), and see your region border by clicking the Experience Bottle. Eventually, you will have access to a Command Block that will let you change settings like mob spawning and snowfall.
Now you might be wondering about the ways to earn money on this server, currently, there are a few main ways :
Jobs : Jobs are ways of earning money by completing certain tasks that your job says in its description. For example, mining can earn money by breaking stone, ores, and placing rails. You can join jobs by running /jobs join, this will bring up a GUI, and all you have to do is choose and click on the job you would like to be in.
Chest Shops : You can earn money by setting up chests shops for people to buy from. This way is really easy, but not the best since you don;t know when people will buy from you. There is an already existing guide here about them.
The Auction House : Here you can sell items using /ah sell [amount] with the amount being how much you want to sell it for. The listing will go up to /ah for them to be seen by other players.
Trading : You can also trade with players using /trade [playername] for safe transactions that don't include throwing items on the ground or no money given in return for an item. This is not a great way to earn money since you do have to ask players but is definitely a way to sell valuables.
Crates and Voting : Whenever you vote on the server you will get a vote crate key and a vote token (that can be used in /vshop). You can use this crate key at /warp crates and have a chance at anything that is in it, including monetary rewards. Also, rare items can come out that you might be able to sell to other players looking for them. You can access the links for voting by running the command /vote.
Section 2 : Voting, ABC ranks, McMMO, Towns, and Donator Ranks
Voting and ABC ranks : As mentioned right above this, whenever you vote, you will receive a Vote Crate Key and Vote Token. Along with this, every time you vote you will also get one point closer to your next rank. You can look at how many votes it takes to get to your next rank along with the perks each rank gives you here. This is a free way to earn all of the perks that donators can get other than some cosmetic ones. Since our ABC system also strives to continue improving, you can also suggest new things to be added to it by going to the Discord and suggesting in #suggestions
mcMMO : This plugin that we have added to our server provides a boost to your normal tools and skills. They go very well in hand with our Jobs plugin in that, at the same time you earn experience and money in your job, you will also gain experience in your McMMo levels relating to it. Such as if you had chosen the mining job, you can mine away getting higher and higher levels for both of them, not only earning more money the more you mine but also doubling and even tripling your item drop. You can also unlock abilities that can make you mine faster, place quicker, or even do more damage. ABC ranks can also increase how fast you earn experience and how fast your ability cooldowns reset. If you would like to know more about McMMo you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.
Towns : On our server, we have a towns system where you can get involved in a town or create your own to earn rewards like tokens and town exclusive crate keys. This is a great place to build a starter house and interact with the community before you go and build your own base. This can also help you gain relationships on the server that may help you in the long run. If you are interested it knowing how to start your own town or would like to know more about the towns system on TheFakeWorld you can visit /warp towns or look at this guide.
Donator Ranks : Our Donor Ranks are ranks you can purchase from our store at https://thefakeworld.net/store. Our donator ranks are a way to support the server and are also not necessary for you to play since all of the perks except some cosmetic perks are available using our ABC rank system. If you would like to look at a list of what Donator Perks you get for each rank you can go here. Our server relies on these donations to keep running with the kindness of players like you. If you have any more question about donator perks you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.
