Server Tumblr - Welcome to The Stumbling Soviet Tavern!

Posted by Beethovenus on April 16, 2015 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (16)

Hey, guys.

Recently, I've decided to start a blog on Tumblr for the server along with Miffy_99.

The blog will include things such as funny screenshots, chat posts, artwork, and other random stuff.

We might recruit more members to the blog team at some point, but they'll just be server operators.

Although, we might be open to looking for blog moderators. Who knows?

If anyone is curious to see what the blog looks like, and wants to check it out, feel free to click the link here!

If you'd like, you can also sign up on Tumblr to follow our blog for almost daily/weekly things.

Oh, and yes. We did name this after the new tavern on the server. Check that out by doing /warp Tavern, and buy some aged wine, whiskey, and other drinks!

Custom Enchantments Removed! -- New Armory Weapon Ideas?

Posted by Beethovenus on April 12, 2015 at 10:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey, guys.

Recently I removed the CustomEnchantments plugin because of it being overpowered, taking a vote and the majority of voters wanting to get rid of it, and the fact that it will be featured on another MinerHolics server at some point.

The armory is currently being redesigned to give it a new look, and being given new weapons.

The system of viewing stats for each weapon/tool will be right clicking on an info sign, which will simply pop up a list of the weapon stats in the chat (weapon name, enchantments, added attack damage, and lore).

Currently, there are only weapons and tools from past drop parties in the armory, although more items will soon be added. Prices need to be come up with for each current weapon/tool as well.

If you would like to suggest a weapon to add to the armory, please comment below with the following format:

Item Type Ex: stone sword):

Weapon Name:

Weapon Enchantments (No more than 3 enchants, and no higher than the natural enchant max):

Lore? (For weapons/tools with qualities that stand out among the other items):

Reasonable Price:

Any Additional Notes?:

Also, could I please get some suggestions for (reasonable) prices for the current armory items? Just do /warp armory, view the stats via the info signs, and let me know what you think in the comments below!



And... yeah. Feel free to do stuffs!

Also, if you guys would happen to have a YouTube or Tumblr account, feel free to check out my channel and blog! I do stuff, and I'd like it if you could get to know me a little more.

Server Shop -- Armory Ideas?

Posted by Beethovenus on January 23, 2015 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (21)

Hey guys,

As you may know, the server shops were recently opened up to the public and are being worked on to be fully completed. Currently, only one floor is completely done, and three more floors of shops will be finished. Some of the prices for items are being rethought at the moment, as some of them are a little too low.

Now, one of the floors of the new shopping center, the top floor, is going to be an armory for the server where you can purchase weapons; some of these weapons will be normal, unenchanted ones, and others will be customized ones. I wanted to take the time to ask what kind of weapons and armory you guys want in the upcoming armory, and add that you aren't only restricted to the normal Minecraft weapons and enchantments, but you are also allowed to submit custom names and enchantments when suggesting a weapon or armor piece.

The custom enchantments are part of a plugin, Custom Enchantments, and can be found here:

When submitting a weapon or armor suggestion, please use the following format:

Weapon/Armor Type (State Which, e.g. stone sword):

Custom Name (Include color codes listed in /einfo Colors if you add a name):

Weapon Enchantments (cannot have more than 3 enchantments, and any custom enchantments may not be over level 3):

Any special text on the weapon describing what it does? (Yes/No; for example, "It freezes your foes into a block of ice!"):


Additional Notes:

And... yeah. Feel free to do stuffs!

Also, if you guys would happen to have a YouTube or Tumblr account, feel free to check out my channel and blog! I do stuff, and I'd like it if you could get to know me a little more.

MinerHolics Planet Minecraft Page

Hey, guys

MinerHolics now has a new Planet Minecraft page!

Make sure to go check it out, and vote us as a top server and diamond us!

Hey, guys

I wanted to make a point clear for everyone, as I noticed that this has been happening a lot in the past and recently for staff applications.

When people include a list of names as to who they think will accept them for staff, they include myself.

I realize that this is kind of you, but I do not wish to be included, as it would make my judgement of the application appear biased based on if I am listed as one who would support the applicant.

If anybody lists my name as a person who will support them, I want everybody to know that this does NOT affect how I judge my applications, and I would rather be excluded from this to render fairer judgement.

Also, I rewrote the staff system. Make sure to go check that out!

Need to go see a movie in a bit with friends; have a good day, guys.

New Calender

Posted by Beethovenus on December 18, 2014 at 9:20 PM Comments comments (1)

Hey, guys.

I recently installed a new calender for the website while tweaking around with some things.

It should list most of the server events, and any holidays (mainly in the United States; if you'd like to suggest any events, feel free to!)


Posted by Beethovenus on December 13, 2014 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (1)


I just wanted to ask if anybody has any revisions to the website or server they'd like to suggest.

For example, a new website theme or a plugin suggestion.

Anything you guys want to suggest?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by Beethovenus on November 28, 2014 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (4)


I just wanted to wish everybody who lives in the United States a happy Thanksgiving yesterday, and hope that they had a good time with family and friends!

On an additional note, Bukkit, CraftBukkit, and Spigot are now available for Minecraft 1.8! MinerHolics should be updated to one of them soon, and all features of Minecraft 1.8 will be available to all players!

Again, I apologize for my absence, as I have been extremely busy with schoolwork and social life recently. I will hopefully be able to work on RoFactions and the development of other MinerHolics servers soon, and make improvements with a lot of the new mechanics implimented in 1.8.

Have a good one, guys.

An Apology of Abscense

Posted by Beethovenus on November 5, 2014 at 6:40 PM Comments comments (2)


Just wanted to apologize for not working on the server lately; I've been focusing on school at the moment, specifically projects for English and History. I will, when I have the time, work on the server and make sure that everything is up-to-date, fix any bugs, and anything else that I decide to do.

Again, I apologize for my abscense. If you need to tell me anything, PLEASE make sure to send me a mail over the website, as it would be more reliable than sending mail via the server because I cannot guarantee when I will be online.

Don't you hate it how popular a server is during summer, and then everybody becomes busy when school starts?

I hate it the most, considering that I'm the owner and active player of one of these servers.

EpicBoss and Tic Tac Toe

Posted by Beethovenus on October 26, 2014 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (1)

Hey, guys!

EpicBoss is now officially up and running once more, with a brand new arena made by odenmac and redesigned by AgentNewYork!

You now have to sacrifice a diamond block to an altar with a boss head to summon that boss in the arena.

On an additional note, a brand new tic tac toe has been made by Xantumorian, an owner of Paper Universe! It includes more sophisticated wiring and systems than the old tic tac toe machine, such as a turns system, automatic reset system, and buttons instead of levers.

Make sure to check both of these things out, and stay tuned for more!

PLEASE make sure to check out the MinerHolics Logo Contest and submit an entry if you'd like to!
