Minecraft Server Sign Colours
Our server allows for text on signs to be coloured. Please read the instructions below on how to use coloured text on your signs when playing on minecraftserver.com . We allow all players on the server to add coloured text to signs. Simply use the & character followed by a hexadecimal digit ( 0-f ) to give the rest of that line of text a colour. Using the & in a sign in any other circumstances will keep the & symbol.
so be &Ecareful
On Minecraft server we use a channel based chat below is a description of the commands and how to use them. As a builder on the Minecraft server you have toggle-able channels that you can join and leave at will. You are always listening in to all channels you have joined. The two default channels are global (g) and local (l). When you log in you start connected with your default channel global (g) if you talk everyone on the server can hear you. However if you change channels to local by giving the /ch l command, only players within a 40 block range can hear you this is local server chat. Unique private chat channels can be created and any player can join them providing they know the name of the created channel. All channels are only stored in memory so everything resets when the server does apart from the default global (g) and local (l). As with the channels, the channels you have joined are also cleared to the defaults between play sessions.
l : Local chat channel, permanent channel represented as <username> normal text.
g : Global chat channel, permanent channel represented as [Global] coloured text.
/ch [channel] : Change your current output channel.
/tell [player] : Use as an alternative to /msg
/leave [channel] : Leaves the channel.
/ch list <page> : List all viewable channels available as well as your current channels.
/ch who: List everyone in your current channel.
The channel name l is specific to local chat.
* Example Output
l : <natbyte> White Text
Custom : [Tag][natbyte] Blah blah.
* Tags: When a channel is made at run time, the tag will be given the first letter.
Minecraft Server also supports stargates. Building these in game allows you to create portals to different destinations.
Building a stargate portal:
O O – These are Obsidian blocks. You need 14.
O O – Place a sign on either of these two blocks of Obsidian
- Line 1: Gate Name (Max 11 characters)
- Line 2: Destination Name [Optional] (Max 11 characters, used for fixed-gates only)
- Line 3: Network name [Optional] (Max 11 characters)
- Line 4: Options [Optional] (options for admin use only at the moment)
Using a stargate:
- Right click the sign to choose a destination.
- Left click the button to open up a portal.
- Step through.
- Fixed gates are like normal gates, but can only go to one destination and will always remain open.
- If you create two fixed gates that point to each other, you will have a two-way portal.
- You can link gates to normal gates, or to other fixed gates which can link to another fixed gate etc. You can’t link a normal gate to a fixed gate though.
- Creating a fixed gate is the same as a normal gate, but you must specify the destination on the second line.
- Gates are all part of a network.
- You can specify (and create) your own network on the third line of the sign when making a new gate. You can leave this blank for the default network.
- Gates on one network will not see gates on the second network, and vice versa.
