Hello everyone!

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for their patience over the last day while we've been doing maintenance and updates on our backend. From the eyes of someone working on it, trying to get it done as fast as possible is really stressful. So thank you for not rushing us. :)

I'd also like to say that the maintenance was really for behind the scenes stuff, so that's why there isn't so many new features as other updates.

New Hub
That's right! We've got a brand new hub, made by the talented @micah_ and @CraftDirt - With the bigger space, you'll have more room for gadgets, etc, as well as just a bigger area to socialise with other players. Also you're actually able to walk into the portal on this hub. ;)

The Future
As stated above, the latest maintenance was for our backend (the stuff that runs the servers, games, features, etc.) - We've been working on "future proofing" the server. We have so...

Hi all,

Just to inform you that the network will be going into maintenance mode - this is to update our servers and deploy a new backend system we've been working on for a while.

We don't know how long this will take, however, we'll keep you updated with the status of the network so you guys can get an estimate.

Thanks for reading, and sorry for an inconvenience this may cause!

Update #1: This is taking longer than expected, we're working as hard as we can to get the server back up!
Update #2: We'll be putting the network up later tonight. We're very sorry for the inconvenience but we need sleep too.
Update #3: We're just ironing out the bugs and then will begin to bring the network back up.

Hello everyone!

Before we get into this update, from the entire Mineswine Staff Team we'd like to wish you all an amazing holiday and a prosperous new year! Now, let's get into this thing...

Parties
Introducing parties! What are parties? Parties are something you can create with a small group of friends and play games with them. When in a party, and server the party leader joins the entire party will join with them! We have more plans for parties, but for now, it has the standard features. Eventually, when minigames come out, players in parties will be put on the same team, etc.

Profile
With this update, everyone has access to /profile. Here they can view their information as well as active game passes and so much more will be coming out soon. In the coming weeks, you'll be able to set your language, view achievements and your level rewards (spoilers) and eventually view your game...

Title pretty much says it all. A few requirements for applying for staff:
  • You MUST have a working microphone of acceptable quality.
  • You MUST have a Skype account.
  • Having knowledge of TeamSpeak and Discord are a plus but are not required. (Mention this in the "Anything Else?" section of the application.)
The link to apply is right here!

I wish you all the best of luck on your applications!

EDIT: If you have submitted a Moderator application in the last month (30 days) you do not have to resubmit. We still have your application.

Hi everyone!

Mineswine has a lot of awesome and fun updates in the works, games, features, etc. One of the features we're currently implementing is translations! Yes, that's right we're going to allow users to select from a variety of languages in order to understand our games more. You can see a teaser on my profile. ;)

Because of this, we're looking for translators to help us translate English messages into a language. This is where you come in. If you speak a language that isn't English and meet all the requirements (below), then feel free to apply for help us!

Translator requirements:
  • Must be fluent/near fluent in the language you know
  • Must not be from any computer-based translator
  • Must be able to understand English
If you meet these requirements, please direct message me filling out the following template. Please note that if I haven't replied to you, this doesn't mean you're not going to be able to translate! I'll be looking through them at a later...

Yup, you read that right, this game is coming back and this is only the first stage! Currently, you need to buy an alpha pass to join however in the future this will change. The new game will feel sort of like a home away from home, it's still JediCraft but you've been thrown into a whole new world and era. Now keep in mind this is just alpha and the full release is going to have way more features. We've also made a lot of changes to basic gameplay, just incase you get lost you can get help here.

RESOURCE PACK
We have been looking forwards to this just as much as you, and nothing makes you feel like a Jedi (or Sith) more than having a 3d lightsaber in your hand. Our modelers have been hard at work creating amazing 3d textures and sounds so you all feel immersed in the new Jedi craft. Make sure you have resource packs set to enabled for Mineswine or because...

Hi all!

Happy December to all of our players! For the first week of this awesome month, we have a network update for you and some other small little things! Let's get into it!

Friend System
Introducing the friend system! The friend system allows you to add your friends, message them and see where they currently are on the network!

Each rank has a limited amount of friend slots (people who you can have as friends), to help our database. Below is a list of ranks and the amount of slots they receive:
  • Default/Guest: 20
  • Piglet: 30
  • Boar: 40
  • Hogwild: 50
  • VIP and above: 100
Soon you'll be able to purchase more slots. For example if you're a guest, and didn't want to...

Hey all, just a friendly notice we will be doing some more major backend upgrades. The server will be down for about three hours.

We have a countdown timer here.

6PM PST Server goes down
9PM PST Server comes online

I can't say much about what we are doing, but let me tell you this; Mineswine is already starting to get great again.

Changelog
  • Not much really, just implemented our own code for our servers. As time goes on, more and more will become custom. I can't list the changes as they are not for members, more staff orientated.

Changelog
  1. Migrated database host
  2. Fixed SkyBlock issues

Hello Everyone,​

As you may or may not know, since Mineswine changed owners, I have been the Systems Administrator for the network and everything surrounding it. So since I am doing a lot of things behind the scenes, I thought it would be good for you guys to know what is happening!

So with Minecraft 1.11 being released recently, I was quite involved with testing the latest versions of Craftbukkit and Spigot and with all that testing I also became aware that Minecraft 1.11 has quite a few crippling bugs. While these bugs can be fixed, a lot of people I know do prefer 1.10.2 as it is just generally more stable and has way less bugs than before. However, although the client may have several crippling issues, the server side of things does not. So that means Mineswine will be updating to 1.11 for everything server side as soon as we are able to. We will still support at least 1.10, but most likely 1.9+ clients and from what I have been seeing, you...
