Server Rules (Read Before Playing!)
If you aren't whitelisted on the server, post your IGN (in-game name) here and one of the staff will add you as soon as they can. If you have been banned and think this is a mistake, contact a staff member. Hint: I count as a staff member!

Welcome one and all to the SMBX Community Minecraft Server! This thread will be used for discussing stuff about the server, showing off your works and other stuff, signing up for server events, and asking questions. Pretty basic stuff, eh? The server is hosted by none other than me, myself. I also have a super cool moderator force that can and should be trusted, they're really friendly!
The server is Survival, hopefully that is to be expected, although you will start in a little hub area, just in case it's night and you need a place to stay, other than that, you're on your own! People are likely to have towns or settlements built, and might have little communities or whatnot for you to join. The only players with the power to jump into Creative mode are the staff themselves, though I strongly, strongly encourage they play in Survival so it's fair for everyone.
Want info on the server?
- The capacity, or number of users able to play on it at once, is 20. This could be bumped up in the future if the funds are available and if we need more slots, but 20 is a good median for now.
- PVP will be on, though I don't encourage ruthless killing. There is a rule for outright killing someone, and the only time where this rule would be loosely enforced is when a group of players agree that their towns or settlements could be at war with another one for roleplaying purposes. PVP is enabled mainly for minigames, but as long as all participants are fine with it, you may use PVP for what it is intended for.
- Donations are accepted but not mandatory, I'll tell you more about how to donate later once I figure that all out.
- The rules are subject to change, especially if someone manages to exploit a rule or some of the rulings seem too lax. Make sure to read up on the rulings at least once a month.
- Server maintenance may occur once or twice a month, which means the server will be unavailable until maintenance ends. I'll let you know when there will be upcoming maintenance, don't worry!

You read it right, the Minecraft Hunger Games!
Credit to myself for the logo.
Every once in a while, me and a group of people dedicated to the event will hold a Hunger Games-style tournament, with rulings changing each game to add some variety. Each of these events will be live-streamed and recorded for viewing afterwards. We've only done this once before, and it wasn't on this server, but we hope to do it many times in the near future!
How does it work?
Me and a group of people dedicated to the event (those that participate 100% through) will be thrown into an arena, and we must fight to the death! In the first rendition of these games, we were paired in teams of two, but in future renditions, that could change, such as a free-for-all! The winning team or player will be put up in a Hall of Fame, which will also showcase highlights of the games, such as battle climaxes, or the deaths of each participant.
What are the arenas like?
That depends, since each arena will hopefully be unique! Most arenas will always have a cornucopia with some starting items in the center, and they will also have a number of starting platforms equal to the number of participants. All arenas will hold a theme, such as a jungle, a desert, a rocky mesa, a forest, etc.. Some arenas may have traps and challenges inside of them to increase the suspense and danger of each one. As an example, a desert arena may have various pitfalls that people must be cautious of, whereas an arena with rolling hills may feature sudden cliffs or even hidden landmines.
How can I participate?
If you want to participate in an upcoming Hunger Games event, you must meet both of the following requirements:
You must own some form of microphone so you can use voice communication with your team members or the others.
You must be dedicated to the event, meaning you can't leave halfway through or take a long break from it. The first event we held took us roughly 3-4 hours to complete, though we didn't have a set arena size then, so these events might take a little less time to go through.
If you meet both those requirements, just make a post or shoot me a PM that you'd like to participate in an upcoming event and I'll fill you in on any extra details.
When will these events be held?
Either once every month or once every two months, maybe less than that, since it requires some time to build the arenas fully, and then we plan out the event's date as well as have all participants at the ready. These events will most likely take place during the Eastern Standard Time noon or afternoon hours, and will most likely take place during the Summer, although we could have a couple more events a lot more often if people are up for it and are dedicated enough. I will make an announcement almost a month early about any upcoming events, and sign-ups for those events will be around those times.
How are the arenas planned out?
Once I finish accepting sign-ups, I will begin working on the arena for the event based on the number of people we have. For example, in an event with an odd number of people, the event will most likely be free-for-all. An event with an even number of people will be teams of two. An event with a small number of people will feature a smaller arena. An event with a large amount of people will feature a generally larger arena. The larger the arena's size, the more likely there will be traps and other environmental hazards.
