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. Jobs 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!
