New Mining World!
We have just introduced a new world to our set of EC Worlds. For your resource needs and mining pleasure, welcome toMiningThis world is NOT for permanent building.
You can build shelters and so forth, but the world is subject to being replaced when we think it should be, and builds will not be saved. Chests will lock.
Please remember that Shulker boxes do not lock
The world is a bit more dangerous than our normal survival worlds. Here are just a few of the differences.
- No claims. (You will get a no permission message if you try.)
- Difficulty is set to Hard
- Creepers destroy blocks when they explode
- Endermen steal blocks
- Players and mobs trample crops
Mine, strip mine, gather resources to your heart's content.
You will find the portal in the Hub on the main level. The Horizons portal has been moved downstairs.
The Magna spawn also has a portal to the Mining world.

Our maintenance downtime yesterday was largely for this: http://www.escapecraft.net/maps/
and this http://z.escapecraft.com/maps/
The link on the front page side side nav bar is updated with it as well. They are not real time, and will update every morning at 6am server time, but now you can see your builds and plan your global conquer tactics.
We are going to look at going to dynamic maps in the future, but careful planning will have to be done for that, since it's usually resource intensive on the server for them, but we'll see what can be done.
Let a staff member know if you have any questions.
--edit-- Added in the dynmap link

Howdy folks, I haven't been active in a while, but as always with minecraft (and Escapecraft) it's so easy to get back involved and sucked into the fun. Yeah, I don't play in the game much anymore, but I really do enjoy the admin side of things, keeping the server running, etc.
Thinks to note, we are actively working on making things smoother in the game, better play, no lag, etc. To help with that, I've ordered a shiny new (used) server. Our current hardware is 5 1/2 years old and while it still works good, I think newer hardware will do better. Going from 8 core's of CPU up to 20, 48gb of RAM up to 128gb and moving to SSD RAID, so should be better. Now, since these servers don't just run Minecraft, it will not get all of these glorious resources (and don't today). I have other hobbies, etc and that's how I pay/justify for things, minecraft and escapecraft just get to benefit from it. Either way, it's faster hardware and you guys get to enjoy some of it.
Now, about Vildare. We've talked about it amongst the staff and all agree it was a bit rushed and probably not a great seed for a new world. It's not going away for a long time, it's here and can be used by players who have created regions there, however, we are going to lock it to new players. We'd prefer to send new players over to Magna, it has more biomes to pick from and is a better seed overall. For those of you who have settled in Vildare, stay and enjoy if you want. If you want to be amongst other players more, we can offer you a move of your build to a suitable location on Magna if you like.
Also, we are going to close down the Nether and The End for Vildare, those are both available for Horizons and Magna and no reason to waste resources on them for Vildare.
Lastly, feel free to reply or hit us up on Discord if you have questions, comments, feedback on any of this.
