Minecraft 1.8has been released! If you have your client profile set to use the latest Minecraft version, you will need to downgrade or create an alternate 1.7 profile to connect to Minetown while we wait for Bukkit to release a semi-stable update.
As usual the main servers will be updated as soon as a stable bukkit 1.4 release is available for them.
You can now connect to the main servers using a 1.4 client.
In the mean time we invite you to come discover the new features with us on our 1.4 vanilla temp server.
1.4 temp server:MT.GG:1337
More news concerning Minecon & other stuff coming soon !
See you !
EDIT: Our servers are now allowing 1.4 clients connections. We are using a patched 1.3 server client to make this possible. Which means that the 1.4 features are not available yet. This is the most we can do at the moment as there isn't any bukkit version released for 1.4 yet.
As the Minecraft scene gets older and evolves, some things change and some others must be adapted. For the past ~2 years, Minetown always been a "closed community", where membership, gained thru application approval, was required to play on our worlds.
This system allowed us to build a much more mature, and also of better quality, community than others as the "bad members" were rejected. Although, this way of functioning also been "a nuisance" under some other aspects by cutting down a lot of potential members, ending up in reducing our playerbase drastically.
To keep up with the scene and with the impressive amount of servers there are nowadays, something had to be done about this, but without affecting what made Minetown was it is today and destroying what took 2 years to achieve.
It is in this state of mind that the following concept was developed, to expand Minetown's horizons without ruining what has already been made.
Introducing the Minetown Wildlands!
A brand new and unique world that is playable without any membership and offering a "vanilla-esqe" experience. The Wildlands are rendered using a custom generator which will create a Minecraft world like never seen before.
The Wildlands are also branched with the PlotWorld where you can safely build your home. You can travel between the two by using the commands: "/go plotworld - /go wildlands".

The ranks of the member worlds do not transpose to the Wildlands and few other details are still being decided.
As usual, the end of the month comes with the announcement of the top voters. We decided this time to also announce the winners of the New Worlds Contest and of the Valentine's Day Event(better late than never).
All donations goes into paying for the server and into the maintenance, improvement and expansion of the EximiusGaming network. Running Minetown is expensive and your donations help to make it grow and succeed. Thanks for your donations and support that helped making Minetown what is it today and what it will be tomorrow.
