Getting Started on Towncraft
Starting on a new Minecraft server can be confusing. There are plenty of commands, builds, warps, and more to understand, and it can be overwhelming. I decided to make a short- er, sort of short- guide for new players here. I just hope it isn’t too complicated. ‘^.^
So, how exactly do you get started on Towncraft? As of now, TC has several different worlds. When you first log on, you will be taken to the lobby world. As of now, the different worlds are:
*TC4. TC4 is the most recent survival server on Towncraft to date. However, it’s also the most complicated. I would recommend starting here, as it is the main/most popular world. To get to the TC4 world, press the “t” key and type “/tc4” into the space. When you type this and hit the enter key, it will take you to the TC4 world, and you’ll end up at spawn. To get started in this world, leave the spawn area and find free land to build and mine. Can’t find any free land? Everything says that it’s claimed? No problem! Ask a staff member or a player for help finding free land, and they’ll teleport you somewhere you can build. Some players even have towns where you can rent a home! Once you find free land, I’d recommend gathering materials and building a home or shelter. If a mob kills you, you can type the command “/back” to get back to where you just were. Once your done building a home, or have found a place to live in a town/hotel, type the command “/sethome home” to set a warp point there. Now, you can always type “/home home” to teleport back to that spot!
That’s not the only place you can warp to on TC4, however. Some players – and admins – have created places that anyone can warp to. One of these places is /warp mines. You can type “/warp mines” to go to a world that lets you mine the materials there. Please note that /warp mines resets every day – builds do NOT stay here!
What if someone griefs your house? If you claim it, they can’t! You can use a golden shovel to claim land so that no one can build on it but you unless you trust them! Select the first corner of the area you want to claim by right-clicking the ground with your golden shovel, and then select the opposite corner to make a claim. PLEASE claim your land – we don’t want anyone to have their items stolen! If someone does grief you, type “/report” to make a ticket. If you make a ticket, a staff member will assist you as soon as possible.
*TC3. TC3 has a lot of commands that are the same as TC4, but it’s an older survival server. It’s a bit harder, however – occasionally, there are even zombie apocalypses! However, because it is older, there is less free land. There are more player made warps there, so it might be a bit easier to find materials! To get to tc3, type “/tc3”.
*Creative. Creative is a, well, creative world where you can built whatever you want with unlimited resources! To get to creative, type “/creative”. Then, when you reach creative spawn, type “/plot auto” to claim a free plot of land where you can build whatever you choose! If you want to get back to your plot later, do “/plot home”.
*Hard. Hard is a, well, hard mode survival server. Most commands are disabled, and mobs are more difficult to defeat. To get to hard, type “/hard”.
*Fish Slap. A minigame where you slap other players with fish. The entire game is to stay on the pyramids long enough to get enough points to win without being slapped off. To get to fishslap, type “/fs”.
*Rebel War. Rebel War is a game where you can kill other players and zombies for points. You can also team with other players to fight against the zombies. To get to rebel war, type “/war”.
*Hunger Games. Hunger games is where you collect materials and fight other players to be the last one standing. You may team with other players to survive, but you can’t have a team bigger than 4. If your team is the only group of tributes left, you may have to fight eachother, so be careful! When you start the game you get to choose a kit with weapons, so choose wisely. You can earn more credits to buy kits by killing other players and winning games. If you want to give credits to another player, do “/givemoney <amount> <player>”. If you want to join hunger games, type “/hg”! Please note that if a game of hunger games has already started, you cannot join until the next round. You may, however, float around as a spectator.
*Build Game. Come here to compete and vote with builds! When you join the game, you will have a certain amount of time to make a build according to the theme, and then you can vote on other player’s builds. To get to build game, do “/bg”.
*Lobby. Lobby is where you end up when you join the server, and you can always type “/lobby” to get back.
Always remember that if you have a serious issue, you can use “/report” to make a ticket and a staff member will help you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your interest in Towncraft, and I hope this helps new players!
