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...

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.


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 statistics. You can access this GUI with /profile on any Mineswine...

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.

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.

  • 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.

Hey all, the server is going down for some maintenance, please be patient. We expect it will be down for about an hour, but this is just a rough estimate!

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Edit: Server is back online, if you find any issues, post about them here!

  1. Migrated database host
  2. Fixed SkyBlock issues
  3. Fixed anticheat false kicks
  4. Improved creative lag (if anyone had any)
  5. Updated some backend stuff

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...

I'd like to start this post off by thanking all of you who have applied for moderator on Mineswine in hopes to help improve the server and keep it a safe place for everyone to enjoy (all 78 of you)! This being said, we are not approving moderator applications going forward for the time being. Let me explain exactly what this means.
  • If you submit a moderator application, and we like it, we will save it for when we need more moderators.
  • We will still be looking at every application we get.
  • We are not automatically denying applications during this time period.
  • The normal 30 day time period in which you may submit another application still holds, but know that your first application may not have been denied, but we just do not need more moderators at the moment.
Again, we will still fairly look over each application, but hopefully this helps everyone understand where we are right now with hiring staff members. Remember that you may not ask any...

Hello again,

Over the past week you might have noticed that things have been changing a lot though out Mineswine. I hope that all of you agree with me these are much needed changes. Today I am going to give you a status update on how things are coming along and our priorities with redoing the minigames. So, this is what currently needs to be done / coded.

Mineswine Core
Mineswine Survival Games
Mineswine Survival Games + Guns

Community Involvement

With that said I would like to know what exactly you (the community) are looking for in the new games. All the new games will operate exactly and if not very similar to the previous versions of them. I saw a post earlier in the SGRL section saying that they really wanted supply drops back in SGRL and, that is AWESOME! We love when the community gives us ideas and feedback. (Supply Drops will be released with the new SGRL :))(@JorgePlaysMC )...

Hello all of you who stuck around long enough to see what you thought was the last of us.

As of today the first steps are being taken to hand over the server to myself and my partner in management. Over the next few days drastic steps will be taken to update and fix the server in a long winded attemp to restore Mineswine to its former glory days. This will be an entire server overhaul but we promise you the end results will be well worth it.

We are pretty excited to introduce ourselves and the new dev team as we dedicate ourselves to bringing back a full restored and updated Jedicraft and SGRL along with some other goodies including a brand new (mobile compatible) website and fancy new game modes. We also promise to return with the ones you always knew and loved. (Remember how great factions and Minewars used to be!)

Feeling unsure? Don't worry we will be here to answer questions and are still working closely with the previous owners to bring back what you know and love. Until...
