Now Concluded!The winter is now in full swing and the recent holiday update has launched Old Town headfirst into a new era defined by exciting events and updates. This month, after weeks of hard work, Old Town is excited to reveal a brand new event available for any player, any time.
As the title implies, this event is a scavenger hunt. In the depths of a jungle harbor, dozens of chests filled with different items have been stashed all around a massive arena. Of these chests, 20 (normal prizes) are easy to find, three (special prizes) are difficult to find, and one (Ultra prize) is incredibly difficult to find. In each of the chests, a player takes out 1 item and turns it into a staff member for an epic prize unlike anything on the server. Don’t take more than one, each chest has different items.
Now what prizes might be worth spending hours looking for? Some of the many, unique, prizes include: a potion that gives a player 10 extra hearts and regeneration, a bow that can one-shot nearly any mob, armor that can defend against anything short of the enderdragon, and even a pickaxe with fortune VIII. Rest assured these prizes aren’t impossible to get, and many players will win all kinds of prizes.
As an added bonus for taking the time to check out the website, it might help to know a few things about where the chests are hidden. First of all, about three quarters of the chests are underground, so look somewhere other than the trees and the ground. Next, in the massive nexus of caves underground, redstone torches indicate that there is a chest in the general area-- they are not a path to follow. Water is not the death of you, maybe going for a swim might yield some reward. Finally, if you see an iron door, that is a one-way exit from somewhere that has a chest, so look around for a cave to the underground-- there is a chest nearby.
To get started on the scavenger hunt, simply type /scavenger, check out the prizes, and...
MC OldTown Holiday Update
By: Slyvannus (.Sly)
The new shop complete with massive snowmen
The snow is falling, the fire is crackling, the hot cocoa is steaming, and six thousand Santas are standing outside grocery stores driving you insane by ringing their bells incessantly for far longer than any human should have to. But just because you’re on a holiday break does not mean that OldTown is not going to keep working.
In fact, OldTown is working harder than ever to bring you the most memorable holiday since the time that you got six pairs of socks, an ugly sweater, and a new pair of pajamas. This holiday season, the server has improved the scoreboard, menu features, in-game chat, and the server hubs. Additionally, the server itself got an upgrade that has advanced its power from that of a potato to that of GLaDOS.
First of all, there is a fancy new scoreboard on the right side of the screen that lets the player know how many votes there are until the next vote party, player level, the amount of players online, the lag status of the server and how much money the player has. The first feature, how many votes until a vote party, is useful because vote parties are fun for everyone, and knowing that the server is only two votes away from a party means that people more people are likely to vote in order to get free goods. The next feature, player level, may seem a bit redundant, but the server chat often covers the xp bar, and it’s undeniably convenient to have everything in the same place. OldTown is a large server, and seeing how many people are online is a good way to gauge when it is best to come online. It is a lot more fun to play with 40 people than with six, and the scoreboard player count can can let you find out the best time to play without having to press and hold tab, which, like xp, is a convenient bonus. Sometimes lag is good,-- mining a block underneath oneself and falling into lava is a terrible thing, and lag can replace...
