    The time has come to grab your golden boots, a diamond pickaxe, and a full stack of food, and set forth on a new nether adventure! Watch out for dangerous hoglins and be careful when looting chests near piglins! Find ancient debris, smelt it, and combine with gold to upgrade your tools and armor to the new top tier standard, Netherite!

    Please read all the following information carefully so that we can all enjoy this new experience in the best way possible!

    Nether Spawn

    There is a new nether spawn area that you will be teleported to from the portal in the mall. From there, you will find a path and a staircase. The path will take you to the brand new wither fighting arena! The staircase will lead you up to the area where we will build nether tunnels, which can be used for quick travel. This is where everyone's murals will be built. I will need volunteers to help clear out the tunnels!

    Please, please, please DO NOT blow up or destroy the regular nether looking for ancient debris or other valuables! There will be plenty to go around for everyone in the nether resource world every month!

    To help enforce this, you cannot enter beds to (attempt to) sleep in the regular nether, and you cannot place TNT.

    Yes, you may use TNT and bed explosions in the nether resource world.

    New World Map

    I have generated a 1/8 scale map of the entire overworld in the nether. This means that if you place a nether portal at a location on this world map, it will take you to that exact location in the overworld (if you link the portal up correctly). This is the secret project I have been working on, and I am so excited for you guys to see it! You can check it out by typing /map

    Please note that only moderators can place portals for you on the world map. This will ensure the map stays beautiful and pristine for everyone to enjoy and explore. Be sure to bring your elytra and rockets so you can fly around to get a good bird's eye view!

    You may exit the map area with /home or /spawn or by using a portal.


    Yes, jobs have been updated to support the new blocks. Please note that not all new blocks will be added as a payment. For example, Miners will not be paid for breaking basalt or blackstone, because there are already plenty of other blocks they get paid for. If you feel like we should add payment for something from 1.16.3, please let me know and I will consider adding it.

    Mall Shops

    The mall shops will be updated with some new blocks and items at a later date. Expect to see basalt and blackstone variants, nether gold ore, crying obsidian, and more. Please note, we are NOT adding ancient debris or ancient scraps to any shops. Those items must be obtained in survival so that they retain a high value for trading or using to upgrade your gear.

    Ore Announcements

    I have added nether gold and ancient debris to the mining announcements, and removed nether quartz ore from being announced.

    Please let me know if you have any questions, and enjoy!

    I have questions about the new world map: 1) if we put a nether portal in the map at the same location as my nether portal at my base in the overworld, does that mean if I go through the portal in the map, I end up my overworld base nether portal? And then if I go through my overworld nether portal at my base, I go to the regular nether? 2) what do the campfires mean in the new world map?

    If you want to be able to go to both the map portal and a portal down in the "playable" nether area, you will have to either construct a mechanism that shuts off your lower nether portal, or you'll have to build 2 portals in the overworld, one up really high in the air (which would go to the world map) and one at the surface level.

    The campfires don't mean anything. They are just for decoration.

    I really do think that we need a way of getting to the normal nether from the map, it's a bit inconvenient to have to /spawn every time you want to go to the normal nether

    I have added a way to get up to the world map area from the nether. If you take the staircase up from the nether spawn, you will find crimson vines to climb up.
