    I have been inactive over the summer. I logged back in today and I can't access any of my chests.
    Any chest I click on prompts me to purchase a chest. I still have my "free"-stat and my money but I can't access my items.
    Furthermore, when I logged in I was at spawn with no items.

    Can an admin help me out please?

    I expected "Free" status to be fun but so far it has been a complete nightmare.

    As soon as I move into the open world I'm cut down by people in enchanted diamond armor with fire aspect swords.
    Regardless of the armour I wear there is no way I can recover from the first blow (always from behind) while on fire.
    Hit, on fire, turn around one more hit and then burn to death.

    Going spelunking is dangerous as hell becuase as soon as you start exploring you're stalked by someone, killed and looted.

    Go back into the prison to grind is not an option.
    What does the rest of you do to survive?

    I'm posting on behalf of the account "Edwinre", which I share with the account owner. I was on the account when this glitch occurred.

    -snip-


    Something similar happened to me. I was in the C-mine and logged off. When I came back on I was up in in the ceiling, vertical from where I logged off. Luckly I was stuck and could jump out to the walkway but I can imagine that I would have fallen and died without the walkway.

    And without light you could be banned for xraying even if you didnt.


    Very good point indeed. I always get suspicious when I've used 8-10 torches to light a trench and my "neighbor" is going on without like nobodys business.

    No, never use torches... sell your coal ._.


    Who said anything about using your coal for torches?
    Make 4 cheap torches from charcoal and re-use. It is a $6 investment and will save your life in the cobblestone mine. Furhtermore, you might miss coal/ore because it's too dark.

    Gussifer's beginners guide to "Killion Detention Center.

    As a new prisoner in C-block you should only have goal, get out of C-block as fast as possible. $15.000 might sounds like a lot of money but by being smart and efficient you'll be in B-block in no time.
    Below are some tips and tricks on how to get there fast.

    General code of conduct
    Do not cheat. Flying, wireframe textures, X-ray mods etc will get you banned in no time. Killion has a very strict policy on this and ban people by the hundreds every week. If you dig 1x1 or 4x4 holes and get lucky this might raise suspicion. The best way to mine is to trench mine , it is also the most efficient.

    Get a chest as fast as possible. A small chest is $1.000 and it is worth the investment. You can get $1.000 a day by voting which is good money.

    Do not, for any reason, use the public furnaces because your stuff will get stolen (remember who your fellow inmates are). To smelt in a safer fashion craft a furnace and wait until the cobblestone mine resets. Dig down and find a spot, place you furnace and immediately cover the furnace all the way around (people with wireframe textures will be able to see your furnace if you don't).

    Be very observant of the chat area, you will learn a lot from it.

    Don't beg or in other ways spam the chat. It's annoying, ?noobish? and other prisoners will ignore you.

    Consider donating. This will not only keep the server alive but give you perks.

    sell Sell SELL!
    Your objective is to raise $15.000 and hanging on to items will not get you there faster.

    Woodfarm: Each log is worth $4, meaning that it only takes 3750 logs raise the money. If the cobblestone mine is empty, don't ***** and whine in the chat, head over to the treefarm. Always always replant sapplings. Not doing so is considered griefing. In my opinion, chopping wood is safer and less risky than working the mine.

    Cobblestone mine: Each cobblestone is worth $1, coal $16 and iron ingot $32. As stated before, trench mine when possible. Bring a 5-6 stone picks, torches and some bread and get to work.

    Rob: You can skip working hard for the money by robbing others. Carless C-miners move with goods from the mine to the shop and could pay off big. Equip a stone sword and hijack them when running the gauntlet. I find this method to be annoying and far slower than earning an honest living. You will **** people off and have the guards on your tail in no time. Also keep in mind that the C-person you robbed several times last week will likely remember your name...

    Falling fruit: Hanging around at the bottom of the cobblestone mine can be very fruitful. Careless miners fall to their death and their dropped items are yours to take. Pick away at the ceiling while waiting for the "splash"-sound. Common practice is to set traps for other miners to make them fall (remember that pushing is not allowed but setting traps are).

    Moving around the C-block:
    C-block is a very dangerous place regardless of where you are. You will get pushed out of non-PVP areas, hunted while moving your goods, accidents in the mine (people are devious), the list goes on.

    When trying to bank your goods if found this method to work really well. Before moving anywhere, check your health, you don't want to go into any PVP area without a full health bar.

    From the cobblestone mine, make sure your back is clear and sprint to the left to take cover in the fishing area. Wait a few moments and do the same thing but now run straight and left into the vault. What you should do now is to place your items in your chest (you bought one right?). Now look at what you have and take 1/3 of your goods and try to move these to the shop. This is by far the most dangerous hike. Jump out of the vault, head left trough the doorway and select one of the two doorways. If you see someone standing in one of them pick the other. Sell your goods and repeat.

    If you get killed you only lose 1/3 of your items. It might sound tempting to sell everything at once put the pain of losing 30-45 minutes worth of work is annoying to say the least.

    Staying alive
    Learn the C-block layout as fast as you can, it will save your life.

    Be very observant of the other prisoners. Watch the chat area to see who is killing other prisoners and stay out of their way. If you see one of them lurking in the doorway of a non-PVP area you can bet that they aren't there to enjoy the view. By being observant of the people around you and the chat you will increase your chances of survival anywhere in the prison.

    Prisoners in full iron/diamond armor frequently visit the C-block. My best advice is to stay out of their way since enchanted swords and potions will kill you in a heartbeat. These prisoners are only there to mess with you since your items are worthless to them.

    There is no shame in ratting other prisoners out to the guards. If someone is PVP-abusing or in other ways are hindering you from getting your $15.000 send a message (/msg name message) to the guards and request supervision or escort. Given that you will have to forfeit your sword and/or go to jail for showing it they usually go away when guards show up.

    Enjoy Killion and give me a shout if you see me in the game!

    can someone tell me why i was banned for getting a lot of ores it sed i was using x-ray but i never did that if an admin sees this pls un ban me i did nothing worng


    You need to post a "ban appeal" in this forum (look at the previous pages for the template).

    I can tell you right off the bat that most ban appeals due to "X-ray" are denied.
    It will cost you $15 to un-ban (stripping you of everything).

    When mining, always trench mine.

    I'm truly dissatisfied with this server. I logged on and left the spawn room, only to be killed upon exiting. That's fine, it was a pvp area, I can cope with that. I decide to go mine to get some money to buy a bank slot, while I'm there, people are constantly standing next to me, only to get the items I'm mining up. That's fine, maybe I should try something else. I go to the tree farm, and the same thing happens.I leave and go to the fishing hole and fish up some fish. I go put them in a furnace, and as I'm standing right by it, someone comes up, steals the fish AND the fuel I was using. I was killed multiple times, and guards idly stood by and watched it happen.

    I was under the guise that this would be a fun server, much like the last prison server I played on, but I was sorrily mistaken. I'm sorry, but I feel that unless the camping and grieving is stopped, this sever is not very fun one to play on.



    Don't fret, it happened to all of us when starting out in C.
    You have to learn the "prison rules" the hard way. Just come to terms with the fact that prisoners will prey on you regardless of level.

    1. Never use a public furnace, you will get your stuff stolen 99.9% of the time. When a mine resets, find a safe spot in the mine and smelt there.

    2. Get a private chest as fast as possible. Voting will give you $1.000 every day.

    3. When done mining, go from Mine to fishing hole. Fishing hole to bank and store stuff. Then take multiple rounds to sell your stuff at the store. When moving between the areas always cover your back, run and jump. Look around (and from kill messages in chat), you'll see the prisoners that are there to kill and steal quite easily.

    4. Chopping wood is probably your best way of getting money fast, 3750 logs and you have the $15.000 you need to get to B (I was able to do it in less than two days).

    5. If you have $15 (real money) to spare, get donor status.

    I hope that helps. If you see me around, give me a shout.

    I noticed that the slot machines in Starpen have glass around them.

    Are you doing maintenance or is there anything I need to do to play?

    Thanks.

    ok, so 2 ppl were having an arguement in the server yesterday, and i want to know the answer, but i need some help. the question is as follows:

    if a person sets up a trap in the mine, and someone falls for it, would it be considered killing in a safe zone? and could you get banned or jailed for it?

    Please post your opinion as i would like know what you think of this, thnx!
    Still wanting opinions on this


    Here is the response i got from Markillion when I asked this question yesterday:

    Q: Is it against any rules to build "mine traps" meaning you dig a hole to bedrock and then bait the top of the hole with an ore with the purpose to make people fall?

    A: Traps are allowed as long as you aren't actively trying to kill someone, such as pushing them into the hole or trap.

    I wanted to stop by and say thanks for this fantastic server!

    After haven been "Minecraft clean" for 6 months I just spent the weekend working my way from "C" to "B" and this is truly an fantastic experience. Donations coming your way!

    I'm quite new to the server and I have a few questions that I hope someone can answer.

    1. Is it against any rules to build "mine traps" meaning you dig a hole to bedrock and then bait the top of the hole with an ore with the purpose to make people fall?

    2. In B-block, every evening I find a few prisoners with diamond-everything and enchanted-everything working in teams to take miner out while they run the gauntlet from the mining area to the store rooms.
    Is there anything one can do to get an escort to be able to bank your stuff?

    3. I noticed in this thread that quite a few players have been banned for x-ray hacking while they claim they just got lucky.
    I've noticed myself that most of the time my trench mining (using one fresh diamond pick) will yield a lot of sandstone, 2 diamonds and 5-8 gold. This morning I had a fantastic take (in my book), 4 diamonds and 12 gold in one run and my pick had 1/5 left on it. Luck and technique plays a big part and my fear is to get banned because you are doing too good when you look at the sandstone to diamond/gold-ratio.

    4. Prisoner who break these two rules:
    No PvP abuse! - Hitting from a Non-PvP area, running into a Non-PvP area while tagged, and pushing someone out of a non-PvP area will get you jailed.
    No Camping! - Camping player spawn and/or other Non-PvP areas will get you jailed.

    The same prisoners keep doing this over and over, sometimes for hours at a time without any repercussions. If you find a player who keeps breaking these two prison rules, what do you do? /MSG a guard?

    Again, best Minecraft experience to date, thank you!

    posted a message on World War M [PVP][RACES][mcMMO]
    Hi all,

    I must say I was utterly confused playing last night.

    First couple of times I spawned in mid-air falling to my death. After that I had a hard time getting anywhere because I was killed the second I stepped outside of spawn.
    The tournament was fun to watch but then the killing started again and the kit I got at spawn lasted a few minutes before I was killed and had to run the gauntlet again. I believe I died 10-15 times in 30 minutes.

    Is there any form of organization within the races?

    What Race you want to be: 1)Humans 2) Dwarves

    Why you would like to join: I've been looking for a server with an RPG theme, factions ,mcMMO and a living community for a while now and this seems to be it. I'm impressed that the thread has gotten 9 pages of applications in just a few days.

    What you would contribute to the server? Be specific: I'm a builder, especially bridges and integrating buildings into already existing rock formations etc. Redstone and carts (I didn't see if this fit into the theme but I couldn't see anything in the rules) is something I'm fairly proficient in as well.

    Have you ever been banned before? If yes tell me why: Nope, I've been on several servers since I started in September 2010 but I have never gotten as much as a warning.

    Are you willing to change your skin to be race specific?: Yes, already using an RPG skin (human) but would change if I got my second choice.

    Thank you for taking my application into consideration %$%

    Thanks man, works like a charm. One of the doors were placed on the wrong side.

    So I got it all up and running and I must say it's blazing fast.
    How did you hide the wires going to the last T-intersection?
    Will you post a video or screens for the wiring and cart delivery system=
