Spawn is slowly taking form!
I’m building a huge wall around the whole spawn area, once completed there will be farms, animals, villagers and buttons which give goodies. The whole area is lid up so it should be monster free.

As far as snapshot bugs go, not seen any show stoppers. Just cosmetics, I think the final release of 1.8 is imminent.

The wall with walking view area is shown top left, the spawn castle is taking shape top right, spawn point is right in the middle and the green grass part will be the shops and houses.


Sadly we seem to need rules
We try to keep things simple and free at Kaizen Worlds but we do need some basic rules.

First off, we are a survival server so do not ask for free items. I only go into creative mode to work on the spawn area, the rest of the time I play in pure survival. That said DO ask other players for trades.

Carbonkitty and Diamondhoodie love farming so they are good people to trade farm related items with. The Troy loves fishing so talk to him if you need some fish. I love chopping wood and collect plants. YetiEatsYou, a new player to Kaizen Worlds, is a mining machine, so is SFaulken so speak to them for mining related trades.

Next up, griefing. Until we have the claims plugin back please do not touch other peoples builds. It sucks putting a lot of time into something only to find it griefed the next day. Once the claims plugin is back its open season, if you don’t claim anyone is allowed to destroy your build. We will use the griefprevention plugin which is silly easy to use. There will be a tutorial on the blog and as a YouTube video once its back.

PVP, it’s enabled but seeing players range from 4 to 40 please be aware not everyone might think it us funny to be ambushed. Once the worldguard plugin is back we will have PVP and non-PVP areas. If you walk into a PVP area you will be an open target for attacks and getting all your items taken. We will make paths between all areas on the server that will be non-PVP so you can get around without getting hassled.

Lastly, language. The f word is a great word when used in the right sentence but overuse just makes you look like an ass, just don’t, ok?


Public nether portal, enter at own risk!
To quickly get to some nether goodies I created a public nether portal. Enter at own risk, don’t forget that the server is set to HARD!

Also don’t build anything in the nether as I reset it every now and then to ensure resources for people.


As you might have noticed by now we are running the latest snapshot for the upcoming Minecraft 1.8 and as you can see from the map render below 5 people have already started building houses. One person is building underground which is wise seeing we do not have any plugins so no griefprevention, sorry about that.
Seeing there is no griefprevention I will give anyone a free ender chest for their special items but I still suggest making a secret hidden room to hide your valuables. Also if you see anyone griefing simply take a screenshot, send it to me and they will be banned for life!
Please be aware that creepers blow up stuff, and thunder and lava can set your house on fire as M3luney found out the hard way.


I thought it would be cute to have armour stands at the spawn but carbonkitty discovered that even though spawn is protected anyone can simply take the armour by right clicking so enjoy the screenshot as the stands are gone 😉


Our new spawn point. Sadly due to the way vanilla handles spawn you will be throw anywhere around this, including the water! Once we have bukkit we will again have an exact spawn which will be the middle of this circle.

The design was inspired by the logo of the Dharma Initiative from the LOST TV Series.


I have had some worried messages on Skype and Facebook from players who think Kaizen is dead because they can not log on. No worries. I have backed up the server and we are running snapshot 14w30c vanilla with a clean map this whole weekend.
The normal map running on 1.7.10 with all the plugins, ranks, your stuff etc will be back on monday.
If you want to join create a new profile on your launcher, then enable snapshots and choose 14w30c from the pulldown menu.
Make sure you switch back to your normal profile when you want to play on your other servers and your single player map.
