Nerdcraft Guide

Learn how it works





Learn to play

DarkMC and Nerdcraft have many custom commands and gameplay elements, so make sure you read below to get an idea of some of the basic ways you can interact with the plugin.

Tips for starting

Starting in a new city isn't easy, but there's a few things that make it easier. First, get a server job. Whether it's police or crime, it will help you get a foothold. Next, find a company that will hire you. While you wait, there's a public mine left of spawn. Worst case, mine and sell the proceeds to get an apartment. Eventually, you'll make friends, join a company, and get land of your own. Just be smart!

Connecting

Making an account on this website and connecting it allows for many features. These features include discord integration, using the stock exchange, creating groups, trading, and becoming a part of the larger community.

 /connect

 - Starts the connection process

 /connect [key]

 - Finishes the connection process

Placements

Placements are blocks you place in land you don't own. You have limited placements in public land and any placement is unprotected. When you log off, placements in public land are removed after 5 minutes for cleaning purposes. Placements in private land which you don't own can be considered defacing property.

Some good ideas for placements include:

 - A stand in the main square

 - Blocking a hallway when you're being violently murdered

 - Escaping a hole you fell into

 - Adding roleplay elements

Bad uses of placements include:

 - Placement spam

 - Griefing property

 - Floating blocks

 - Defiling public works

Groups

These commands are needed for several things. Remember that groups are made on this website, not on the server.

 /group
