Hey everyone!

It is with a heavy heart that we come to you with this news, but our server has been breached (this is an isolated incident and will not happen again, we've secured the server and the presiding issue.) The World file and Player Data were lost during this breach.... Which is resulting in another reset.
NOTE: This is not our choice, we did not do this or want it to be done, this sucks for us all and we are all hurting please bare with us throughout this process.

As a very slight compensation (more of a head nod than anything else) towards the players, we will not be resetting total Claim Blocks. (EX: If you had purchased 25k blocks during the last 9 days, you will be given another 25k for free, for a total of 50k).

We have also reset the purchases made on the website from April 19th to Current, this will re-issue all purchased commands and award you with any keys, claim blocks or kits that you have purchased.
Please contact a staff member if you are missing a perk that was paid for during this time period.

Once again, we are very sorry that this has happened, but it was not our choice. We love you all and are very glad that it is only 9 days into the reset and not months down the line. Thank you for understanding!! <3

Sincerely,
The HC Admin Team

Hey everyone!

We have officially reset the server!! Everyone can now join at play.harvestmc.net to a fresh new start!!

Please keep in mind that the only things that were not reset are the following:
Purchases from the last month (Keys, Shards, Rank On-Purchase etc), Vanity (Pets, Disguises, Titles), Claim Blocks (purchased on site only), Donor Ranks and other permanent donor perks.

The following things were added in this update:
- Leveling Tools (1-5 on all legendary tools) are now available from Donn Zhou in spawn
- Two new trinkets, Slimey Compass and Extreme Magnet added to both Mythical and Voting Crates
- Economy Changes to Shards (Spawner prices increased, donor kits cooldowns increased from 7 days to 30 days *because of recycler being op)


(We'll update this later with a link to the old world!)

Happy Farming!

Hey Farmers!

As you may have heard around the server working on a pretty big update... Up to this point we have not confirmed or denied anything, but in this post we would like to set things straight.

Firstly, we are working on a large update for HarvestMC, and it will be coming in the next few months. This update will change the game in it's entirety forever. We would like this update to bring us up to speed in many areas we currently lack, and are hoping that we will see an influx in player base to follow. While the server is excellent in it's own form, we will be the first to point out it's many issues. For instance, here are the ones that come to mind immediately, and we hope we can fix.

  • Current Spawn/Town
    • Our current spawn is far from the best build wise, so we would like to update it.
    • Our spawn currently houses 40+ NPC's in a very small area causing many lagging attributes to the server's overall health.
  • Plot System
    • While the plot system can be fun, and allows for some creative content, it's dated and needs to be changed. We have ran with some sort of plot system since the server has started in August of 2013. Upon an update to the server we would like to change to an open-world system that has a claiming system. This will be in a custom generated world.
  • Lack of Content/Custom Items
    • On our current build of the server we have many custom items and trinkets, but we lack the lore behind them to make them creative. We need more custom items in the game to add flavor to the experience, and would like the communities help in coming up with names of items, lore of items, and further content. Please let us know your brilliant ideas!
    • Add to our lists of community ideas here: http://www.harvestmc.net/forums/index.php?threads/trinket-suggestions.1044/#post-1856
  • Lag Spikes, Server Crashings, and Server Health
    • The server as a whole is on a 32 GB Dedicated Server and should be able to handle much more than what we are throwing at it, the issue becomes one unique to our server in the sense that we have things other servers don't have at all. One of our largest issues is that we are running on a lot of outdated code, this update has and will fix the issue of our code lagging the server.
    • A second issue that we are experiencing is the issue of our compatibility, we are currently running a server base of Spigot 1.9.4, this is a severely outdated...

With a lot of confusion on how to link your account on the Discord, I created a small walkthrough for everyone.

Linking your account in Discord is used so you can access more Discord permissions such as changing your nickname, as well as accessing picture uploads. This is a required step when applying for staff!

You can check out basic information on how to do this in the #information tab.


You need to be in both the Minecraft on the server as well as on the Discord to link your account.

Step 1: Find the Harvest MC bot in the player list on the right side of Discord, and click it to open options.


Step 2: At the bottom of the options, message the bot "
/link <Your Username>". This will open the private message tab with the bot.

Step 3: The bot will search it's database, and find your username online. It will then, send you an in game prompt to follow. Simply type "
/DiscordConfirm" and the bot will link your account.

That's all there is to it! Enjoy your new privileges!

Welcome to HarvestMC's August Event! This month is a brain stumper of a puzzle. Above is the puzzle in picture format.

Talk freely amongst yourselves to try and figure it out. The solution we're looking for is a color name. This may require multiple steps to get to the solution! Don't get discouraged, hints will be dropped occasionally throughout the month to help guide you through the puzzle if you get stumped.

Huge reward for the player or group of players that figure it out. We encourage working together for this event! Mini puzzles will be sprinkled throughout the month with rewards as well to keep your minds sharp. Good luck, and have fun!

Hello HarvestMC members!

Recently, there has been a couple changes to ALL (Builder, Developer, and Helper) applications. Theses changes aren't very big, but it is something to keep in mind if you are thinking about applying for any of these positions or have a pending application. Before I go into detail about what has been changed on the applications, if you currently have a pending application, I encourage you to read this post and make changes by replying to your application thread and updating it with the correct information.

The first change that was made that's the more major of the two changes was the amount of required played time (/played). After being discussed between staff members, it has been decided that the required amount of played time before a player can qualify for applying for any position is now 3 days (72 hours). It has been noted on the applications that you must now have 3 days, so if you are planning on applying in the future, it states under that question that you are required to have 3 days worth of played time.

The second change that was made that was a lot less major than the other change was you are now required to have a Discord. Recently, we have switched over from using Skype to Discord as a form of communication between staff members. Communication is very vital on the staff team and is required for you to be accepted as well as to remain on the team. Who knows, maybe being active in the server's Discord before you apply and while you're waiting for a response to your application could help your chances of getting your desired position. ;)

Here is the server's Discord if you have yet to join: http://discord.gg/FMbXjcr
(I highly encourage you do if you plan on applying or you already have!)

If you have any questions regarding these changes or applications in general, please feel free to ask by replying to this thread!

Have a nice day. :)
Kat

As HarvestMC expands, so does the staff team! But where does the staff come from? Why you of course! With a renewed interest in accepting staff, as well as searching for fresh staff, many people apply without knowing what the server is looking for. This is the fastest way to get denied.

If you follow my tips and ideas, I guarantee you will be a better candidate and blow the other applicants out of the water!

Helper is the lowest position on the staff team - but it might be the most important! Helpers do exactly what it sounds like - they help out the staff team and the players. For the most part, helpers only help encourage the rules, not quite moderate with mutes, kicks, and bans. Helpers are the first person that staff turns to for beta testers, and suggestions for the server. Overall, it's an important role that acts as a stepping stone to bigger and better things!

Guidelines and tips for applying:
  1. Check your playtime with /played . You will always get denied if you are under 48 hours of play time, no exceptions.
  2. Take one minute and google "What is my time zone?" A lot of people will be denied under the idea that if you cannot follow simple instructions then you're not mature enough to be staff. When filling out the application, use the proper timezone code (EST, MST, CT).
  3. Before you apply, as well as once you submit your application, start testing the waters by helping out on the server! Answer questions that new players pose, follow the rules, be kind and considerate to players and staff, as well as be willing to help anyone. Actions speak louder than words!
  4. Forgo empty promises. When applying, don't make any promises about how you're going to swear yourself to the server, or be the best there is. Follow simple guidelines about creating manageable goals. (1. Tell us what makes you different from the other applicants. 2. Tell us something that you've done in the past to prove to us you would be a good staff member. 3. Give an example of something you've done on the server (with witnesses) about how you've handled the rules or helped a player in an exceptional way.)
  5. Do not bother staff about checking the applications....

Hello players! In hope to clear up some confusion and questions regarding applications, there has been a minor change to the applications. No ones current application should be affected by this change.

| Disclaimer Added


Hopefully this clears up the confusion on how and when we do applications. I apologize for not putting this disclaimer here before hand.

If you have any questions regarding applications, please reply to this thread.

Have a nice day. :)
