This project was started on the premise of rebuilding Minecraft: Java Edition in a way for it to keep up with and compete with Minecraft: Bedrock Edition which seems to be the main cause in the large drops of communities we've seen since the addition of addons allowing you to easily play and use mod like content without modding at all and just loading simple resources and code, so that's what we've done with Java Edition. We can actually add anything we want, in terms of mod-like content into Vanilla Minecraft and even add vehicles, new foods, items, tools, weapons, armor, blocks, ores, biomes, NPCs, custom GUIs & menus plus a powerful NPC AI designed for our games to continuously expand as our NPCs live out there lives and expand their civilisations.
What Are We Doing?
We're hoping to become more than just a network, we want to be a multimedia group doing more than just Minecraft Games which is why we have been planning and working on some new animated series to launch alongside the network as well as give new views into ingame characters. Our games though different are still what everyone knows and love, we have features such as factions, guilds, prisons and all the other classic gamemodes you love all incorporated into different games with new methods and styles of gameplay, this means you can choose to play all of them in your same game or you could even just play a single one if you like, with our games we strive to have no restrictions and an endless pool of decisions and paths for you to take.
How Are We Doing All Of This?
We've found lots of little tricks in Vanilla Minecraft not many people would know all about, we can't actually say how we're doing it but you will find out after the release of the network and the release of our power packs for other server owners which will allow them to add mod-like content to their servers as well.
What Gamemodes Are Planned?
Firstly I want to clarify that Haven Realms does not do "gamemodes", the sole purpose of our project is to add new content to Minecraft allowing users to create their own individual games within Minecraft's engine with minimal effort so a better question would be "What Games Are Planned?" as we actually incoroporate a lot of common gamemodes together in various other games to allow for more immersion, freedom of choice and content available to the players. For example currently in development is Palegio: A Realm Untold which is the crown jewel of our network providing a stable MMORPG platform for Minecraft that incoporates features from Factions, Towny, Prison and more to create a unique gameplay experience where user's have complete freedom to make any choice they want but be warned as some choices have bad consequences while others have good so choose your path carefully.
What is HavenLife?
Good question to ask for those unfamiliar with tycoon based games in essence the HavenLife game is a free open world peaceful game focused solely on areas and activities aimed at overhauling every vanilla mechanic, this includes but is not limited to equestrian, ranching, farming, cooking, crafting, transportation, building, mining and more. We also introduced new methods of transportation such as upgradable trucks and cars that players can purchase ingame to make transportation between farms easier. Feel free to check out the snapshot blog post to see what can be expected in FarmTycoon's beta release.
How Do I Apply?
Just join our Discord as linked above and open a new application ticket in #open-ticket and one of our managers will be with you as soon as they can.
What Do We Need?
Well this is just some rough numbers as you can never be sure which spots will get filled when and how.
Update: We've added a new closed beta access to those who get Boosted on our Discord as well as we've made improvements to the website, however activation emails are broken again so if you join our Discord we can manually activate your account.
So when we started out with vehicles we thought long and hard about how we wanted to introduce them into the game alongside all of our other content, we worked really hard and have now got multiple working transportation methods now available to players come the beta release.
Diner Dash – A New Minigame for The Culinary Expert
Everyone loves those classic competitive food games where players are required to multi-manage multiple orders, ingredients and cooking progress while maintaining a stressful level of calm as your kitchen burns down because you forgot to take the pot of the stove. Well guess what? We’re bring that fantastic feeling to Minecraft!
Soon we’re going to be recording a new trailer to showcase one of our projects, we’re looking for players willing to volunteer and get a special sneak peek at what we’re working on as well as you get featued in the trailer.
Now we’ve been keeping this under wraps for a little bit while we worked out the bulk of the functionality and mechanisms to support our vehicle systems and now we’re finally excited to announce and showcase it along with so much more content within each screenshot. For those of you who don’t already know Haven Life introduces a lot of new vehicles and methods of transportation so it only made sense to create a fully functional gas station in which players can upgrade, modify and refuel their vehicles.
The Hub is the central point of any network, it’s the link between every gamemode, server and minigame and is probably one of the most visited locations on any network which is why we’ve made the Hub a completely community friendly and fun space. Wait, did I forget to mention the Hub is a literal theme park? Yes you read that right, we’ve spent a while setting up various themed rides and activities for players to explore, experience and enjoy the communal home.
