  2. Cover the outside of your base with obsidian, maybe even 2 layers depending on how much obby u got, and use double fencegates, instead of doors.

  3. Step 1) Put all of your banners in shulkers.
    Step 2) Put these shulkers in ender chest.
    Step 3) Laugh at those -snip-. X]

  5. Except for hackers. Those nasty ... lads destroyed my entire base!
    There are three ways of protecting your stock on this server.
    1)Your inventory.
    2)Ender chest.
    3)An underwater vault bordering with the bedrock.

  7. obby means obsidian!

    Ender chests for me sometimes delete the shulkers inside, so I like to physically place them.

  8. I’d suggest getting rid of them then you wouldn’t have to worry

    umm you can easily get through even multiple layers of double fence gates without even having to try and open them

    I’d suggest getting rid of them then you wouldn’t have to worry anymore

    players can’t play fairly and obtain anything because most of the vanilla game has been removed there is no progression past dirt blocks and stone for building no mob drops beyond rotten flesh and gunpowder (which had absolutely zero usable items it can craft) and no economy etc players have nothing to do anymore because survival is missing from survival they’ve removed the entire game and players have no way to get past what would normaly be the items and gear from first few mins of the game facing those same starting mobs with no path to anything past basically the moment you spawn in and break your first 20 blocks or so your done and you’ve completed all the content that there is lastly I’d it that you were told by staff this nonesense or that you’ve become a trainee without any knowledge of the game at all? I would assume it’s the former and that they’ve played a cruel joke on you to shove you out here with the community with your head full of misinformation but it could also be the later and they gave you this position without any kind of due diligence to determine if you even knew basic things about the game i feel sorry for you either way

    lol for real though. i feel like survival is not the game it used to be. half of the vanilla game is removed, and anytime mineplex finally decides to update it they continually just degrade the quality of the overall experience. in the last change they made to it, they removed all the features that made survival great. also i feel like survival and mineplex in general is heading in the wrong direction, hopefully they sort out all the issues soon although I highly doubt they will.

    I don't even know where to start with my reply but here we go.

    Survival hasn't really changed at all since being brought back up really. All we did was disable item spawning. Which was a HIGHLY request within our player base. The OP items and hacked in items got removed with this update. We don't "blindly support it" we don't support anything that goes against our rules. We also don't "cater to 1-year-olds" I don't understand where you are getting your facts but they need to be checked. The devs and staff team DO care and listen to the community. We list to every suggestion.

    We had to remove half of the vanilla game due to restrictions on our servers. We DO have plans to update survival. I will not stay anything about the said update as I don't want to be yelled at. The only "feature" we remove from our survival server is hacked in items where were against our rules.

  11. hmm, what exactly defines a hacked item though? would things like music discs ,shulkers ,nether stuff, mushroom blocks, terracotta, fireworks, end stone, etc. be deleted? in my opinion if players spawn in stuff that's still vanilla by minecraft standards then it should stay.

    I don't think it was a highly requested update, most people in the survival community disliked it when it came out. and our suggestions often go ignored, we've been asking for things like Redstone and claim sharing for years, not to mention the fact that there's still bugs that have been in the server since before i joined 3 years ago.

  12. You can't spawn items in via NORMAL survival. Things like Shulker shells/boxes, End Stone, Nether Stuff and some other things you can't get in Mineplex Survival. So they were spawned in items.

    It was highly requested in all communities. CakeWars, SkyWars, Turf wars, etc. Item Spawning at the time was a Network-wide issue that was bannable in all games including survival. Item Spawning won't be possible ever again. Your suggestions don't get ignored at all. The things you have been asking for take time to make and there are things in the making for Survival Season 3. You can report bugs over at www.mineplex.com/bugs

  13. i see now, thanks for telling me. perhaps, mineplex should add some sort of shop system as a substitute.

    to be clear I wasn't trying to defend item spawning, I was meaning that when mineplex patched this issue, it removed all the items that made survival good. like beacons,spawners,elytras,potions,etc. which made a lot of people frustrated and leave survival. also one last question, when season 3 does happen is there going to be another reset, like what happened after season 1?

  14. That’s internal info, no thread. Release dates are not said so not possible to give on survival or any other update.
    A lot is being considered for survival so will see when it’s done
    Posted Jan 17, 2021
  15. Seasons mean reset. We are currently on Season 2.

  17. still not true because many non hacked vanilla non illegal items were removed and the only people happy with the way things are are extremely small children who don’t know any better and spam gbox over and over in the chat so no normal chat can occur ruining the game for people who actually want to play and not sit in dirt huts no one asked for normal everyday items to be removed and if they did it’s because they are too young or dumb to understand basic Minecraft if staff were listening to this vocal minority of people who don’t know anything about the game then they even less intelligent than any of us could imagine especially when you’d expect the people who are in charge of things would have played survival and have even a basic knowledge of the game there’s nothing illegal about being able to light your build or craft a basic potion and there’s no excuse for it

    music disc isn’t rare at all idk why people think this I have a farm for them that works fine there’s nothing special about them even without the farm any player can put four pistons and a block together to capture a skeleton and creeper then get music discs

    They can still be taken there is no safe way to display anything or at least there isn’t anymore there used to be one way to make a completely safe space for your stuff but they removed that so now the hackers and griefers can get your stuff no matter what you do unless you have a place built before the change was made

    they only listen too -snip- and not the people who play a lot and care about survival and the first day survival came back it was perfect hackers were removed and our stuff was left alone really the perfect outcome but then they just started taking things out of the game and -snip-

    exactly survival on mineplex was the absolute hands down best experience offered on any server on any version and they’ve ruined it beyond repair and taken the most fun version of Minecraft away and given us what amounts to some knockoff minecart mobile game that acts like Minecraft but doesn’t have anything from the base game at all when you try and fail to play it

  18. The only way I’ve seen placed banners stolen is if they were attached to something flammable and that block burned away. Or water.. I think if you can dump water on the banner on a wall they’ll pop off.

  19. well that sucks, i guess I'm going to have to find a new survival server to play on then :/. thanks for letting me know though.

    i can say the same with just about any gamemode in mineplex, mineplex just doesn't listen to their community. the only thing I've noticed that's been improved is the anti cheat but even then it still needs a lot of work.

    Not every game is worked on everyday, there are priorities and work on them, a whole game revamp takes more time, Survival will get an update, there are a lot of things that are being discussed and our dev gyro will work on it with input as well as his own ideas when survival is to be fully worked on
