    November 2017 News Edition

    Woo! It’s that time of the year again. Time to pig out with your friends and family while talking about what you’re thankful for! That’s right everyone, it's Thanksgiving! Although some people don’t celebrate it due to locations, it’s a huuuuge deal here in America! Why’s that? We’ll explain. Some of you don’t know what Thanksgiving is or why it’s so important. However, here in the United States, we learn allll about it in our first years of schooling! Back in 1621, Plymouth colonists and some Indians shared a huge fall feast! It was 3 days long and was a celebration of the first biggest gathering of food they had. So, ever since then it’s been a lovely holiday about getting together with your loved ones and having a feast! Over this holiday break, we all have a lot to keep in mind and think about. Think about the people you love, the people that love you, who you’re thankful for, why, what you’re thankful for, and overall happiness and thanks for everything you have! Remember, be thankful for everything you have and get because someone else out there could have nearly nothing compared to you! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, enjoy your break! This year has had some up and downs for the news team so instead of going on and on about stuff, we decided to keep it simple to get ready for christmas! So, we added some fun games attached to this! There’s even some prizes to work for in game to make it extra fun and competitive! Here’s how you can win. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HOW TO WIN IN GAME PRIZES! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Everyone loves games, and it’s even better when you get rewards! All the games below are played for IN GAME prizes! To play, simply save the picture, complete it, and email the final product to diversitymcnews@gmail.com ! The difficulty is 1-4.

To be fair, you can only win once, so choose wisely! The harder the game, the bigger the prize. Winners will be announced on December 1st! Ready?

  3. We'd like to thank all of you for your patience as we've undergone the process of downsizing the Shop District. There were a couple of reasons why we did this: the current warp had become so big that it was becoming very difficult to navigate and find what you were looking for the number of shops and entities was causing a lot of client side lag for some players Our solution to fixing this problem is two-fold. First, we simply had to reduce the overall size of the Shop District. That process is still ongoing as we move shops from the outer edges of the warp closer to the center, and we will be removing a few more plots from the warp once that's done. We will also be instituting some new changes to the shop warp, which I'll list further below. The second part of the solution is to open up a second new shopping area, away from the current warp. We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce to you the Quartz Island Mall. You will be able to warp to it from the Shop District, Shop Sub-hub at spawn, or Warp Hub (the sign is under the current /warp shops sign). Quartz Island Mall Gallery of mall images with more details: https://imgur.com/a/352Hs The mall features over 40 potential shops, with ample room for design and storage. It also is easier to navigate (only four directions to choose from!), and will be easier to find what you're looking for using centrally located signs to advertise shop wares. Shops can be altered by their owner, and you can design your interior and storefront to attract customers and show off your building skills. Shop spaces are 13x13 square, with an upper level and lower level that together are 24 blocks tall. You are free to put as many floors within this space as you can comfortably fit. You will not be able to build outside of your own personal shop space, however. Starting Sunday, Oct 29, Mall shops will be available to players Level 5 and up, and will cost a one time fee of 5 diamond blocks. If you currently are a shop owner at the Shop District and would prefer to move to the mall, you may do so free of charge starting TODAY! From Oct. 22-28 we will be offering first pick of locations to current shop owners who are interested in moving. Due to the smaller size of mall shops, and the fact that they are interior spaces, we will not be able to world edit an existing shop into the mall space. You will need to design and build your new shop and remove your old shop before we will give you new shopkeepers. If you would like to move to the mall, please contact a moderator so we can assist you with setting up your new mall shop. (Note: you may not have BOTH a mall shop and a shop district shop, except during this interim transition period. We will delete the shopkeepers at your old shop before giving you new ones at the mall.) There is no penalty if you choose to stay at Shop District. At this time, if you would like to move plot numbers within shop warp to an empty one that's closer to center, you can request that as well. Changes to current Shop District We know that some of you would prefer more space, and more freedom of design than the mall will allow. For these players, shops will still be available at the Shop District, but to reflect the larger space and design freedom, we will be raising the price and level requirements for a plot accordingly. Starting Sunday, Oct 29, shop plots will be available for Level 7 and up players at a price of 10 diamond blocks. There will be NO extra charge for current shop owners who prefer to stay where they are, even if they are under the level requirement. Stalls will remain available at the Shop District Shopping Center for lower level players. Quick Reference: Stalls vs Mall shops vs Shop Warp Stall Level 1+ Cost: 9 Diamonds (Does not need mod assistance to purchase) 1 Shop Sign and 1 chest No customization available Located in shopping center building at Shop District Mall Level 5+ Cost: 5 Diamond Blocks (requires mod assistance to purchase and set up shopkeepers) 13x13 horizontal space, 24 block high vertical space. Shop interior and shop front fully customizable within the build space. Two shopkeepers of your choice. Shop Sign at center of mall may list some items available at your shop for advertising purposes. Limit to one sign per shop, must be mod placed. Located off shore at Quartz Island, reachable via /Warp Hub and the Shop Sub hub at /Spawn Shop District Level 7+ Cost: 10 Diamond Blocks (requires mod assistance to purchase and set up shopkeepers) 17x17 horizontal space. Above ground may build to 30 block height limit. Below ground to bedrock layer. Shop interior and exterior fully customizable within the build space. Two shopkeepers of your choice. Reachable via /Warp Hub and Shop sub hub at /Spawn Some rules will remain in effect regardless of what kind of shop you have: No beacons allowed at Shop District, or in mall shops (other than the ones already provided). Players must keep their shops well stocked. Players who do not will receive emails periodically to remind them to restock their shops or face eviction. Players who are inactive for more than 30 days will be evicted. Your shop or stall will be removed to a safe space and the plot will be opened up for another player to purchase. If you return after that and would like to reopen your shop you must remain an active player for at least a week. After that we will move your shop back to the mall or shop warp (depending on where it came from) at no charge, into whatever space is available at that time. We cannot guarantee the same shop location as before. Shops may not be kept "under construction" indefinitely. You will have at least a week to design and build your shop, and ask for shopkeepers. If you do not complete your build or renovation within a week, we may evict your shop. (Though we'll do our best to remind you to finish first.) Please note: If there comes a time when we reach capacity for both the Mall and the Shop Warp, we will consider opening up either another mall, or another shop warp in a different location. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here!
