It's finally here ! A new experience, filled with fun, content and tons to do, explore and discover!
If you're not already in our Discord server, feel free to join (just kidding you actually have to) here: https://discord.gg/QYjfjtd
We really appreciate any and all feedback on how our server is managed. Without your suggestions and support Trelm could not be what it is today! Thank you!
Everything comes new with this version of Trelm! New worlds, new world border, new spawn, new shops! You name it!
We replaced Factions with an alternative, that is a little bit different, but adapts to our server mechanics more strongly than Factions did. Guilds gives us a lot more flexibility on what we can and cannot control as server administrators, and the mechanics for players are not incredibly different.
We revamped our economy system entirely, changing how it functions in huge ways. You can now spend your emeralds on more than items, as we've implemented other ways for them to be used. We've opened up a shop that allows you to spend emeralds to buy special game perks, as well as chat titles!
We currently have a total of 19 Trading shops, 7 of which are hidden or placed in various spots around our server.
We've implemented a auction style trading system into our server. This design is unique to Trelm and was very carefully designed! Auction an item and let other people place bids using their own items. You choose who wins!
New User Experience
We noticed that we had a very poor new player retention rate with a very high new player rate on our previous server. We have designed this server structure carefully with new players in mind! We now have 10 tutorials available for users to learn about our server.
In addition we have setup a new area for users who join for the first time. Users cannot chat in this area, but it makes navigating easier and less confusing for someone who is new. (see /warp welcome)
Members can now only tame a SKELETON or a ZOMBIE. We will implement ways for users to unlock further progression in this area shortly. Premium and prime users have access to most mob types.
Note that any user can trade pets with another player. This means that if you're not prime and you want a fox pet, all you have to do is trade with someone that has it!
You can now open Shulker boxes by right clicking them. This requires that you first purchase the Shulker Pack ability in /shop. It costs 60 emeralds.
You can no longer place shulker boxes in Ender chests, or standard containers. We found this to be a serious loophole on the previous server and aim to patch that. Hiding millions of items in an ender chest wasn't cool!
We rebalanced a lot of our custom items, as well as added several new, fun things to our server.
Added Obsidian Boots
Added Obsidian Leggings
Added Obsidian Chestplate
Added Obsidian Helmet
Added Obsidian Dagger
Added Obsidian Sword
Added Obsidian Pickaxe
Added Obsidian Obsidian Hammer
Added Possessed Stick?
Rebalanced Emeralite Pickaxe
Rebalanced Emeralite Sword
A new Era of Trelm is coming!
We know that many of you seriously enjoy what we have created, and so do we! Each and every day we work towards providing the best quality that we can offer, which is why in the last few weeks we have been absent, planning, designing and working towards setting up a better, superior version of Trelm.
We won't lie - starting out was really rough for us .. we learned a lot though! And we're bringing this back stronger. We want to provide something similar, but different - we want to enhance the experience in every possible way without imposing too much, or lack of content.
We do not want to expose much of what we're working on, but rest assured that we will have a brand new map, and new systems in place for a lot of older content. We will have TWO new sets of armor, and various tools.
All purchases made on Trelm will be carried over to the new server. This means if you purchased a rank, you will keep it - our intent is not to rob you, don't worry!
We will open up the server for early access testing on Saturday!
From this point onwards, Premium is a LIFETIME RANK.
All users who purchased Premium Lifetime have been upgraded to PRIME.
Prime now enherits all premium benifits, and has the price Premium Lifetime used to be.
If you purchased Premium after July 26th, you can upgrade from Premium to Prime at a discounted rate. For all users who purchased premium before july 26, message a moderator or admin to get a special discount code to give you the same discounted rate!
After extensive testing, consideration and discussion we are rolling out some game changing updates.
We did not like the level of hostility displayed on our server, and want to explore a more slow-friendly paced factions experience. This means while raiding is still very possible, it takes far less effort to stay secure in your own bases.
Obisidian nerfs have been removed, and it now protects against TNT with or without water.
Creeper eggs are no longer available for purchase and do not explode. Keep them though, if you have them! We might add some special trades to the black market at some point.
We rolled out a new combat log. You all have been requesting this forever, so here you go! You must wait 5 seconds after being tagged in combat to logout. PvE enemies do not tag you.
Chests on Death
When you die a chest will now appear at your death location. After 60 seconds your chest will be removed and the items will drop.
Premium chests last for 2 minutes, and prime users keep their chests for three minutes.
New Premium Perks
Premium users can now use /rename on any and all of their items to add fancy colors and formats. Max character limit is 30.
Premium users have a 120 second chest expiration time.
New Rank, PRIME
After weeks of testing, consideration and discussion -- here it is! Prime.
Prime is an exclusive rank on our server that enables you to use a very restricted creative mode.
- /gamemode Creative (/gmc)
- /gamemode Survival (/gms)
- 3 minute lock on death chests!
- Special chat icon.
When changing from survival to creative your inventory is saved and a new one is created. Survival and creative mode have completely separate inventories.
When in creative mode you cannot:
- Spawn Mobs
- Place boats, minecarts
- Drop Items
- Put items in chests
- Interact with villagers
- Interact with mobs
- Use a bow
- Place sugar cane
- Place cactus
- Use lava
- Use water
- Throw XP bottles
- Interact with Ender Chests
- Use Armor stands
- Place certain blocks (see list below)
- Blocks placed in creative cannot be picked up
The following blocks are BLACKLISTED and NOT USEABLE in creative mode.
Hey it's been a whole week! That's the longest we've gone without posting some notes about what's changed on the server and the new and fun things that you can do.
Today we introduce something ground breaking!
You like hoppers? Ha ha! me either! But that changes now!!!
Hoppers can now be linked wirelessly. Simply click one, and then the other and then they can be linked! Teleport items and players between hoppers, use advanced sorting systems and more!
Simply left click your hopper to open the GUI menu. You can upgrade it with XP for improved performance.
The maximum amount of hoppers per chunk is now 10, but this is for testing and is subject to change. Please provide feedback on this!
Upgradable Rank Progression
We reworked our entire rank system. Progression is now difficult, ranks are more appealing and offer better kits!
New ranks, with new kits:
Scout, Trapper and Hunter were also modified.
Ranks now enherit older kits, so Psychic can use all kits available to all upgradable ranks.
We noticed a lack of information for new users, and so we added some tutorials to spawn. Feel free to checkout the big and buff golem who is there to guide new players to a great experience on Trelm!
You may also do /rules to view our server rules (Thanks rimebound!)
We've added some fancy hats for users to wear, ranging from tophats to king kong battling on top of a sky scraper. Special thanks to MilkYourCat for his many contributations!
- Added Tophat
- Added Kingkong Tophat
- Added MrBush hat
- Added Jotaro Hat
- Added Keanu Hat
- Added MrKrabs Hat
- Added Dragon Hat
- Added #1 Hat
- Added Squidward Hat??
Some changes were made to the way our warps were named and handled. We also added a new warp for fighting the wither!
- We renamed shops to playershops. The intent for this area is for players to build shops and sell their goods to other users. It can be griefed, built or modified by anyone.
- Newshops has been renamed to Market. A special place for player shops setup by administrators.
- Added Warp Wither. This is the only place on the server the wither can be killed. Note that it's a PvP zone also.
Starting out has been rough, and we've tried so many different methods of growing and reaching a larger audiance. Special thanks to all of you who continue to play and enjoy our server.
We're now running ads on several media platforms and search engines. We're noticing some improvements to activity and will continue testing and improving our reach. Feedback and suggestions would be super appreciated.
We now force the resource pack on all users. In some special cases we may give you a bypass to this. You may contact an administrator on Discord and they will help you get a bypass setup for your account. Only request this if your computer has low performance or for some reason you cannot run our resource pack.
The Trelm Resource pack does not replace existing textures, and you can still use your own packs - this just allows us to improve the Trelm Minecraft experience by adding more creative content, such as hats, items and other fun things!
That's all for now, thanks so much for playing on Trelm and as always, have fun!
