TownyQuest – Next Steps
This is a fairly large announcement, so hopefully you will all take time to read it.
As you all know I have been running TownyQuest now for a few years, however, what you will not know is that a few weeks ago I acquired another network where I have been the manager, working alongside the owner for a long time, called MC-Ages (ip – play.mc-ages.com). This is a grief prevention (golden shovel) survival server working on block claiming, not chunk claiming like Towny.
I have been considering this for a while and been discussed it with all the staff and I am totally certain that the two networks will make a perfect fit, and therefore it is my intention to merge the two together and have a single network. This new network will have 4 game modes to choose from:
o Towny Age Server
o Industrial Age Server
o Dark Age Server
o Creative Age Server
Essentially, nothing will change on any server, no world or game resets, just more options to choose from and play when you log into the network. The ip you currently use will be re-directed to play.mc-ages.com, however, updating the ip will be the best way to connect in the future.
All donator ranks will be global, therefore your rank will be applied across all servers, however, the perks will be slightly different, so please read the perks for each server. The webstore will be updated shortly to reflect this. It will be the TownyQuest store name until I update it.
I am having a new hub spawn built by the servers’ build team at the moment and I hope you will all like is as much as I do – they have done a great job on it so far.
As we move towards Christmas, there will be another game mode added, and as we travel through 2021 there will be a further two game modes added.
Many of you will have noticed a few new staff members appear ‘out of nowhere’. This was not me just allowing my ‘friends’ to have staff on the server – they are actually the staff from the MC-Ages server joining and getting to know the server and you all a little bit better. The same has happened on MC-Ages, where the staff here have been over there getting to know the server and community.
MC-Ages name will be kept as the brand, so the ip play.mc-ages.com will be the way to connect to the server in the future. The website and discord will be moved over to MC-Ages and the TownyQuest versions closed, so please feel free to join the mc-ages discord server https://discord.com/invite/49dfqvk as soon as you can. However, during this period it is very likely that I will need to take the MC-Ages website down to complete the updates and changes, but you will still be able to access the TownyQuest website to keep in touch with news and updates.
Many that I have discussed this plan with are excited at the prospect of more game modes and more players to interact with and are very much looking forward to the merging of the two networks.
I hope you, the community, will embrace the coming changes as I think it will take MC-Ages/TownyQuest to the next level! I would also like to thank all the staff for all the support they have given me over the years on both servers and want to thank you, the community, for continuing to support the servers by either playing on them, donating, or both!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Feel free to comment below or DM any of the staff if you have any questions, concerns, or worries.
I am truly looking forward to the future with you all at MC-Ages.
We have today updated to 1.16.3 - you can now join any of our servers using clinet version from 1.8.x through to 1.16.3.
Last week we also inroduced a serious upgrade to vanilla fishing. There are now custome fish, enchants, quests and of course regular fishing competitions. More infomation on this can be found here: fishing
Welcome to our newest game – Pyro-fishing. This brings a significant upgrade to both vanilla fishing AND the fishing contest.
This is a brief guide to the commands, features, tasks and prizes that you can get while fishing on TownyQuest.
To begin fishing just get a fishing rod and fish and start fishing. But to attract the best fish, every great fishman need a trusty fishing rod, with some good enchantments on it, like; Luck of the Sea, Lure, Mending and Unbreaking.
So access the fishing information/menu either type /fish menu or shift(sneak) + click with a fishing rod in your hand. All there commands can be run either through the GUI or in-game commands. The top two items are your currently held fishing rod and a shortcut to your statistics which can also be accessed through /fish stats.
Ø Working from left to right in the main section of the menu:
Ø Fish Sell Shop, this is the shop you use to sell fish for ingame money, you can sell every kind of fish including base game fish. Can also be accessed through /fish shop.
Ø Deliveries, a quest system for the plugin, can help with levelling up and gaining entropy quicker. Also accessed with /fish deliveries.
Ø Codex, the codex is a menu that allows you to view the wide range of custom fish that the plugin has. Can be accessed through /fish codex.
Ø Scales, the scales menu is used to weigh fish, it comes with a risk but can help improve the selling price of your fish (not gutting). Can be accessed with /fish scales.
Ø Fish Bag, the fish bag menu is used to view the statistics of what fish you have caught and saved for later, it can be used like a portable chest for fish and a larger menu for selling fish without the specific fish boost found in the sell shop. Can be accessed with /fish bag.
Ø Gutting Station, the gutting station is the menu that allows you to sell your fish for entropy. Can be accessed through /fish gut.
Ø Skill points, the skill points menu can be ignored as it is going to be a feature that the plugin creator is currently working on.
Ø Augments, the augments menu is how you access the augment list and a few options which include: Putting the augments onto your rod, removing all augments from your rod, and extracting 10,000 entropy into your inventory. Can be accessed through /fish augment or for the list of augments use /fish augments.
After catching fish, there are two things you can do, either sell them for in-game money, or, gut them to gain Entropy. Entropy is the key ingredient to allow you to upskill you fishing within this part of the game.
If you just want to earn money straight away, then /fish scales and then /fish shop will be your favourites.
As more players become involved in this part of the game-play, you could collect Entropy and sell it to other players, which will probably earn you more than just selling the fish direct.
You can also get ingredients from killing Crabs that you catch. The crab is in fact a silverfish named Crab that you must kill for a chance of it dropping ingredients. People also often sell crab drops so it's worth asking in chat if you prefer a quicker method.
Ingredients are then used to add Augments to your rob for various enhancements and fishing boosts. So, what are these Augments and what do they do? Augments are Custom enchantments you can add onto your fishing rod through /fish augment. There are a list of the augments you can obtain and what they do in /fish augments but there is also a link here: Fishing Augments
Have fun and get fishing!!!
