1.18.2 Update

Posted 2 months ago by CoffeeAndChill.

We're now running MC 1.18.2. Please update before you next try to connect!

If you use Optifine, there are preview builds available for download on the Optifine website.

This SATURDAY, showcase your finest DISASTER in our first Building Competition of the year!

Your entry must follow the theme of "disaster". It could be a meteor strike, a nuclear accident, or a ruined town with some back-story!

Compete for prizes including WorldEdit Tools, utility commands, and cosmetic perks. Winners usually negotiate their prize with staff. Tyrule players can use a building competition as a way of ranking up to Yeoman, regardless or whether or not they win.

Plots will be 64x64. Your entry must be your own original work. Please see for our competition world rules.

Starts at 6pm UTC (UK) / 1pm ET / 10am PT / 7pm CET / 2am SGP See you soon, and good luck!

We’re busy planning a building competition that will start this weekend. Look out for an announcement later this week to tell you the theme and rewards.

For anyone who hasn’t seen, we were recently featured in a YouTube video about old Minecraft communities.

Please check it out - we are ~15 minutes in!

We’ve had around 200 newcomers over the last few days because of this - welcome!
