In-game server

Our Minecraft server is the keystone to our community. Everyone gets operator-style permissions without hassle, with an array of plugins, and powerful tools for building and management.

Connection

Joining the server is simple. You can connect using the address novelmc.net or play.novelmc.net through the direct connect box; or by adding us to your server list in-game. A port isn’t necessary to join, but 25565 can be added to an address.

You can also view and lookup other members, instead of the default tab list.

Many in-game commands that show information specific to members will only apply to players on the server when the command was sent. Make sure to be accurate when using these commands.

Nearby members can be located with a few proximity commands.

We currently only support Minecraft for 1.14.3. As the game updates, our support for older versions may change.

Communication

Besides the chat, we offer other features to take advantage of messaging, with additional features, though a variety of different commands. We use the Essentials features library along with several other plugins for additional functionality.

Mail usage

The /mail function can be used to send, receive, and manage messages. All messages sent must follow our guidelines or they’ll be removed.

Mailed messages can be sent to offline members—or members that aren't currently on the server when the command is sent. /mail sendall is for staff member use only.

Other commands

Members can also manage settings of their character; such as gamemode, and health-based damage.

Website

Our website provides important information as the center of our community’s operation; housing our explore pages, resources, and information. Learning how we structure different sections of our site is helpful for knowing how to get around.

Homepage

Our homepage is the forefront to novelmc.net —with its features builds, and blue waves. Other pages branching from our homepage (such as our team page) can provide material. These and similar files are powered by GitHub Pages and the U.S. Web Design System.

We provide instructions, policy, and guides on our documentation; so everyone can learn how things work. You’re even reading a docs page right now, and you can jump to pages with the left-hand navigation table.

We use information cards in our documentation pages to highlight upcoming important information. Warning cards are also used for temporary information alerts.

Everyone should read our documentation carefully to familiarize themselves with server procedure and policy. Information also helps with using the advanced (and exclusive) features of our server, and other resources.

Social media

Social media is used for brief updates to our members. We have a Twitter for updating our members on what’s happening.

Our GitHub organization is used for development for all of our projects, including this website.

Server blog

The server blog is used for more specific updates of everything that’s going on behind the scenes. We save new blog posts for information that’s really important, though, so you won’t be doing too much reading.

Discord

Our online Discord server is an easy-to-use branch of our community where anyone can talk in real time. This service is great for sharing content, and for quick support. Anyone can join.

Channels

We have text and voice channels that everyone in the community to use. We separate a few discussion streams into separate channels to keep conversations more organized.

The following channels can be used by anyone who isn’t muted or removed.

Roles

We use Discord’s role system to designate and separate members on the server; meaning that some roles will have no server or forum counterpart.



There are only our server's titles. Our ranks are listed on our authority documentation.

The following titles are given to staff members only.

Applications

We use bots to manage our server members, its moderation, and to add additional features.


Other commands and information; including in-game features, resources, and tools are outline further in documentation pages.
