SURVIVAL


How claiming works on Viacraft
We use ProtectionStones which hooks into WorldGuard to allow players to create their own protected regions on the server, which are chunk based. There are 4 types of blocks you can buy that allows you to protection 1x1, 3x3, and 10x10 chunks. The going price per chunk is roughly $1.1K this will fluctuate depending upon the server's economy. 1x1 daily upkeep is $50, 3x3 is $100, 10x10 upkeep is $1K. You may have overlapping regions and rent out regions, this is useful if you want to create a town.

Gameplay dynamics
  • PvP is enabled everywhere on the server except certain admin claims (like spawn) and home/core chunks, regardless of a claim's flags. This is to encourage castle building.

    + Friendly-fire pvp is enabled. This is to encourage discipline and honor systems. As someone misbehaving can cause them to be kicked from the region they are a part of.

    + A player may purchase invincibility from players and mobs (/god) for 24 hours. Useful if you want to be left alone regardless of where you are on the server. Keep in mind that this will NOT work upon visiting admin created special dungeons.


  • Chests and most storage blocks can be opened regardless of a region's settings. This is to encourage players to actually protect their stuff instead of leaving it out in the open. Viacraft's goal is to make gameplay somewhat realistic.

  • You can fly in your regions/claims by setting the "fly" flag to "Allow" and only allow it for owners or members. Flight is forcefully disabled for non-members. VIA rank, although they have the ability to fly anywhere, they are NOT allowed to fly in player regions they aren't a part of or trusted in. Please report abuse to staff.

    This is to encourage building great things while also maintaining fairness in PvP. As I want walls to be effective and players not be required to put a roof/ceiling on everything.



  • NEW: You may purchase an Amethyst block for $10M which has a $10K/day upkeep. This block has special flags which allows for FULL protection of 1 chunk.

Economy system
  • There are no activity requirements for claims to remain in existence per se, but there are daily upkeeping costs imposed by the server or Viacraft Reserve Bank as I would like to call it.

  • Failure to pay taxes or rent may result in losing access to the region or it to be disbanded allowing players to grief/raid.

  • Regions can be put for sale where the buyer will become the new owner.

  • Players can have any item they want repaired at spawn for $100K.

  • Players can buy and sell items between each other through the auction house (/ah).

  • Players can access crates at spawn by either voting, donating, or going to one of the admin created special dungeons listed in the tablist and here.
The chunk purchasing, buying stuff from /shop, and upkeep costs imposed by the VRB may get more severe as Viacraft grows and the overall economy appears to get too easy. Viacraft Management will try their best to keep the economy stable and fair.

The Admin Shop (/shop) is a GUI you can buy and sell items from/to the server itself. This will be your main way of making money from the farms you create. The shop is designed to make players still have to adventure to obtain certain things (like in vanilla) while also making it easy to build. Feel free to make suggestions for what should be added to /shop. Keep in mind that the shop is meant to be simplistic and items bought/sold in bulk. e.g. Why sell pumpkin seeds when you can buy a pumpkin and break it down into seeds?



Special Dungeon Coordinates

The Great Pyramid [UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

The Battlefield a.k.a. HQ Battle Tower / -6283 ~ 3247
This place is in perpetual darkness, landscape destroyed by war, there are spiders everywhere and other dangerous mobs. Similar to the Sculk Dimension, players have certain abilities/commands disabled. At the top of the tower in the center is high value loot some of which cannot be obtained anywhere else on the server which is refilled by Management.

The Blackmarket [UNDER CONSTRUCTION]
More may be planned... Be sure to submit your suggestions via our discord server or on the forums here.

If you ever played the game Rust, these locations are similar to monuments in that game. These are very dangerous locations and are pvp hot zones. Donors will have some or all of their abilities disabled upon entering these areas of the server.

There are also naturally generated dungeons which are a lot of fun to explore.



Custom Dimensions & Worlds Info

Sculk (Deep Deep Dark) - If you successfully kill the Warden, it will drop a key that can be used to activate the portal in the center of the city. Upon entering you will end up in a new mysterious world filled with sculk and decayed/corrupted biomes. This is the most dangerous place on the server as sculk sensors and shriekers are everywhere and multiple Wardens can spawn. The little camps and structures around the world have custom mobs in them which can one hit kill you similar to the Warden if you're not wearing good armor. They're like the mobs found in mansions but stronger. The air is also toxic in this world and you slowly become "corrupted" which adds negative potion effects to your character. At 70% you will start to die from poison, at 90% you will get withered, at 100% you must die to remove the effects even if you escape back to overworld.

Teleportation, flying, and claiming are disabled in this world. You must find a naturally spawned portal to return back to overworld. Coordinates in the Sculk world mirror that of the overworld.

Why would anyone want to visit this place? There are some rare items which can only be obtained in the sculk dimension. Special totems which give effects indefinitely similar to beacons (regen, resist, water breathing, etc) as long as you hold it in your hand. A sword which gives you as many hearts as the Warden and a sword which allows you to move really REALLY fast. The sculk dimension is also a great place to hide stuff from other players.


Planned:
Aether - Making a portal out of glowstone and activating it with a water bucket will send you to a sky dimension.
Super Amplified - A place you can visit to build and see epic mountains and world generation similar to old minecraft farlands.


World and dimension borders:
Overworld, Nether, End, and Sculk are 100K by 100K. This will be increased to 1m, 5m, and 10m depending upon the playerbase growth. You cannot claim in the End and Sculk dimensions.


Server Resets
There are no scheduled or seasonal resets like on other servers. The community gets to vote rather we should reset the world.



Gameplay Features

Weapon cooldowns
Because most people disliked the 1.9 combat update due to this change, Viacraft has restored hit cooldowns back to their pre-1.9 state.

Dual-wielding
You can use items like swords and pickaxes in your offhand just like in your dominate hand. Mojang should have done it this way instead, because fighting someone with 2 swords is cool. So Viacraft made it possible.

Notch Apples
Enchanted Golden Apples are craftable again on Viacraft with 8 gold blocks. Notch apples are also given a little buff from their default potion effects.

Silk Spawners
You can pick up any spawner with a Netherite pickaxe enchanted with silk touch level 1. To keep things interesting, there is a 10% chance of it failing and the spawner being destroyed. So be absolutely sure of where you want your farms!

Realistic Invisibility
Invisibility potions are no longer useless or broken like on other servers. Using a potion will hide your armor, nametag above your head, anything in your hands, and particles. Mobs will also not be able to see you even with armor on.
