    This post assumes that you have already followed the instructions in the "How to Join Our Server" post, and have received your confirmation email that you have been approved and white-listed. If you have not, you will need to register for our website and submit an application.

    Connecting to The Sandlot
    Simply watch this video for simple step-by-step instructions to add The Sandlot to your Multiplayer server list:



    Getting to Know the "Lobby"
    When you first connect, you will join at the center of the "Lobby". The Sandlot is home to several different types of Minecraft servers, and the Lobby is where you will choose which one you want to play on. You can return to the lobby at any time and choose to play on a different server.

    Each of the roads/walkways in the Lobby leads to a different server. At the end of each path you will find a structure with a "Teleport to:" sign inside or on it. Click or right-click that sign to join that server.

    The Lobby may look different at different times of the year. We like to have fun on major holidays, and will often decorate or have fun events during these times. Don't be afraid, nothing here can hurt you or kill you, even though it may sometimes look scary (especially around Halloween!)

    Choosing a Server
    You can read about our individual servers on the "About" page on the navigation bar at the top of this page.

    You may join any of the servers by simply clicking or right-clicking the "Teleport To:" sign. It will look like this:
    [​IMG]
    On the Hunger Games or Creative servers, you can type "/lobby" at any time to return to the lobby. On other servers, you will need to return to that server's "spawn" area by typing "/spawn" or by returning there on foot. The spawn area has an identical sign that you can use to get back to the lobby.

    Protecting Your Land
    If you are playing on a survival server, it is VERY important that you protect your stuff! Once you protect it, you will not have to worry about any other players bothering it or breaking it or stealing from you. You can watch this video for instructions on how to protect your land:



    Playing Nice with Others
    Be kind, be nice, and be respectful with other players that you encounter, and they will return the favor! It is against our rules for you to take anything from other players, or add anything to their homes or buildings without their permission. Please review our rules so that you don't end up in trouble with the moderators! You can find them using the link at the top of this page.

    Enjoy, and have fun on The Sandlot!

    Hi, I have a question about land claims. Can I have more than one? i'm running into the problem where there is an adjacent claim, but i want the stuff next to it, but can't expand in that direction unless i make a second rectangular claim. does that make sense? all claims have to be rectangular, right?

    Yes, you can have more than one. They must be rectangular.

    Make sure you are right-clicking (or the button you use to place a block) on the sign.
