“We give members every command they need to powerfully build and enjoy our server without meeting any requirements.”
Permissions are developed in accordance with our commitment towards freedom.
If something’s blocked or off-limits that you think shouldn’t be, please let us know.
Our Minecraft server is the keystone to our community. We provide operator permissions for anyone without hassle, an assortment of plugins, and powerful tools for building and management.
Joining the server is simple. You can connect using the address
play.novelmc.net through the direct connect box; or adding us to your server list in-game. Applying a port isn’t necessary for connection but
25565 can be appended to an address.
/status- Displays the server’s current state and loaded worlds.
/mem- Displays memory statistics, loaded worlds, and ticks per second (TPS).
You can also view and lookup other members, as opposed to the default tab list.
Many in-game commands displaying member-specific information will only apply to those connected during when the command was sent, making specificity imperative.
/list- Displays a list of members currently on the server.
/list -a- Displays a list of members, with administrator, on the server.
/whois <name>- Provides advanced information regarding a member.
/realname <name>- Finds a member’s username from their nickname (if they have one).
Nearby members can be located with a couple of proximity-sensing commands.
/radar- Displays a list of nearby members and their proximity to you.
/nearby- An Essentials-based variant of the above command, tracks proximity.
/near- An alias of the previous command and serves the same function.
We provide support for both newer and older clients, from
1.12.2 all the way back to
1.7.2. Support for older client versions may change as the game updates.
Besidies the chat, other forms of in-game communication can be utilised with a variety of different commands. We use the Essentials features library along with several other plugins.
/me <text>- Globally announces the specified text for all to see.
/msg <user> <text>- Privately sends a message (
<text>) to another member (
Mailed messages, such as
/msg, can be sent to offline members—or members that aren't currently on the server during command execution.
/mail sendall cannot be used by members.
/mail send <user> <message>- Mails a message to another member (
/mail read- Functions as an inbox; displays all (if any) messages sent to you.
/mail clear- Clears your inbox; deletes all (if any) messages sent to you.
Members can manage settings directly pertinent to their character; such as gamemode and immunity to health-based damage.
Currently, spectator mode is only available to administrators. This restriction is in place to maintain privacy and prevent unwanted activity.
/gamemode <creative | survival | adventure | spectator>- Sets your gamemode.
/gmsp- Alias(es); they set your gamemode, specifically.
/heal- If affected by damage, resets your health and hunger.
/god [on | off]- Without arguments, toggles damage immunity.
The website provides fundamentals; such as information, referrals, and resources. It’s also great to master these tools, and you can start by learning how we commit different sections.
Our homepage is the first page enveloping
shadow.ga—you know, with the funny text and big red mountains.
Other pages branching from our homepage (such as error pages) can provide material.
This and akin files are powered by Jekyll and Flarum.
We provide guidelines, instructions, and guides on our documentation; so newcomers can learn with ease. You’re even reading a docs page right now and you can jump to pages with the left-hand table.
Notes and tips like this one signify knowledge that isn’t necessarily definite but important. Upcoming blocks detail assets we’re still trying to implement—also subject to revision.
Everyone should thoroughly read our documentation so they know how to get around. Information also helps with using the exclusive features of our server, forum, and other resources.
Social media is used for communicating announcements and other important information. We have a Twitter for sending quick messages and all tweets are relayed to the guild in #announcements.
The guild is our Discord server where anyone can talk to each other in real time. This service is great for sharing content, collaboration, and quick support; anyone can join, and it’s linked to in the navigation bar.
Text channels are the focus of our guild, along with voice channels. We segregate our channels based on the subject they were constructed for; as a result, please keep things where they belong.
#announcements- Executive-only channel for important stuff; updates, tweets, and articles.
The following channels can be used by anyone who isn’t muted or removed.
#general-chat- Catalyst of ‘normal’ content—everyday and relevant talk.
#spam-chat- For content that’s purposeless or has been designated as spam.
#dev-chat- The support hotline and place for development discussion.
Other channels that aren’t listed here (such as admin-only channels) function limitedly; for more information, see the various channel topics.
The guild uses Discord’s role system for standalone designation; meaning that some roles provided to members will have no server or forum counterpart. These are called ‘titles’ because they carry no permissions (unlike ranks).
Only titles will be listed here, as the guild's ranking system is identical to that of our server; a list of administrator ranks can be found at our hierarchy.
- Developer - Provided to those who make code contribution to our organisation.
- Architect - Awarded to the prolific builders of our in-game atmosphere.
The following positions can only be granted to administrators.
- Inactive - Attached to an inactive admin’s account; provided upon request.
- Emeritus - Attached to administrators designated as permanently active.
We use bots to emulate a personal assistant for every member. Bots have a wide variety of control and may cover customisation to specification. They can’t be used in-game.
/- Triggers a pop-up menu listing the built-in commands of our Discord guild.
.help- Provides a list of the Some Dragon bot’s commands via a personal message.
t!help- Provides a list of the Tatsumaki bot’s commands via a personal message.
Other commands and information; regarding in-game features, resources, and tools are further detailed appropriately.
