#26867 14/05/2015 - YAMS gets a Creative World

Posted by darrenstraight on 14 May 2015 - 04:25 PM

NEWS FLASH! YAMS now has a creative world as promised in the future of YAMS post! :)


You can find the portal for it at the bottom of spawn tower inside the event portals room.


I really hope you enjoy this, I've tried to be as fair as possible.


Below is a copy of the rules on the forums for the creative world, but please read the signs when you go there as its explained in more detail including commands you need to know.

  • The creative world is not the main part of YAMS, it's an addition to YAMS so you can test your ideas out and show your creativity with others easier.
  • From time to time this world may reset.
  • There is also a plot expiry time of 2 months, so if you become inactive for 2 months your plot will be removed.
  • Each player is allowed one plot, you can however invite others to help on your plot by giving them permissions with a command.
  • This world should be treated with respect don't abuse our trust, remember YAMS server rules apply as we are a family friendly minecraft server.
  • Buildings should be family friendly.
  • You can not /sethome in this world as its not the main world of YAMS, we still want players taking part in the main world.
  • The only way home from this world is to die in lava or such. You will lose all expeirence levels and items you have on you so make sure you leave them at home.
  • You can find more information and commands in the creative world, for which the portal is located at the bottom of spawn tower.

Have fun! :)

#26858 06/04/2015 - New Minecraft world for YAMS

Posted by darrenstraight on 07 May 2015 - 05:08 PM

Its now been a month since our 3rd main world went live, a big thank you to everyone who came on here and posted as without proper feedback we cant know whether we did the right thing or not in continuing YAMS as this server has been going for quite a long time now, since January 2011.


As a little celebration, I've increased the world border in the main world so you can explore further out, there's no public build yet but you'll be able to get a sense for the world and the effort that went into making the rails, such as the terraforming and the building of the rails, especially the details on the stations or the fact that every bridge that crosses a river had to be made.


I quite enjoyed making the station at the end of the yellow line, I had to hollow out an entire mountain and then make it look natural so it wasn't just a dark hollowed out cave!

#26818 No Slimes to Be Seen

Posted by darrenstraight on 19 April 2015 - 09:59 PM

Not really an issue when I can see 6 swamps at least in the mining world. http://maps.yams.me and at the right hand side there's an arrow that pulls the sidebar out allowing you to view mining world. :)

#26805 First ocelots / cats of the new world!

Posted by darrenstraight on 17 April 2015 - 04:52 PM

Since the new world went live I've been looking for an ocelot... I did once see a wolf but never came across an ocelot.


Today after nearly 2 weeks of searching I've finally got some cats and I believe they are the first from this world! :D


Meet Simon and Steer!  :lol:





#26774 Ocean monument locations for prismarine and sea lanterns

Posted by darrenstraight on 14 April 2015 - 05:08 PM

Well we are in the new mining world now and as of the 13/04/2015 a new ocean monument has been found by Tombuktu.


Please be careful when going to ocean monuments, they are dangerous!


This one is a long way out, if you know others who need prismarine, sea lanterns etc.... please help them! Don't be greedy, we help each other here on YAMS! :)


The coordinates for the current ocean monument in the current mining world are:


X = 2185

y = 62

Z = 3177





P.S. Remember to share locations for other ocean monuments and post topics about other things you find too!

#26735 Goodbye Old World Event [SUGGESTION]

Posted by darrenstraight on 07 April 2015 - 09:52 PM

Closing topic, as it's clearly too late which is such as shame as there's enough players that could have done something, but hopefully we can go back and visit at some point!

#26711 06/04/2015 - New Minecraft world for YAMS

Posted by darrenstraight on 06 April 2015 - 02:08 PM

Our family friendly minecraft server YAMS today celebrates the opening of our 3rd main world in YAMS history. It's been a busy 2 - 3 months discussing, preparing and building it.


It may not be perfect for some, but I hope at least that you will give it a try!


A lot of effort has been put into it and while some bits are confusing, I don't think we can fully tune it until players start joining, so I'm looking at you! Yes you! Come and join us!


It's the same ip as before: play.yams.me


With the added addition of a live map website: maps.yams.me


I hope to see you in game, please remember this is a big change for YAMS, so please bear with me and the rest of the staff while we still work hard to make sure this new world is running smoothly. :)


P.S. Remember to re read all rules/info etc as its new!

#26693 02/02/2015 - The Future of YAMS for 2015

Posted by darrenstraight on 02 April 2015 - 03:23 PM


  • Our new world spawn is good as done as are the rails.
  • New mini game still needs finishing, been busy with more important foundations to the world layout.
  • Will be finishing off configuring and testing the last few plugins within the next few days.
  • Still need to work out new set of rules, I am hoping to get this done within the next few days, without this we cant move!
  • Some of the original things I mentioned such as a creative world are currently not present, we will see how the normal world goes first before starting work on this.
  • Other minigames such as paint ball dont currently have an arena, I may use the old world for these as we already have the arenas there, but this probably wont be ready for when we go live with the new world so please be patient with us.

Providing the things that need doing are done by the end of the week, we could be looking at moving sometime next week!


I'll let you know when I know more. :)


P.S. Chairs are working again!



#26661 Yams Hospital [SUGGESTION]

Posted by darrenstraight on 28 March 2015 - 07:09 PM

Interesting idea, we used to have a very small YAMS Hospital back in our first world from 2011, of course a lot of changed since then with Minecraft (new materials etc) and there's quite a few references in our new world to the old 2011 one so having an hospital would be a good reminder of that!
Anyway I think its doable, but yes lets wait until we have the new world and see how that goes. :)
Here's some screenshots of the old 2011 one, I'm sure we can do even better this time!





#26639 02/02/2015 - The Future of YAMS for 2015

Posted by darrenstraight on 20 March 2015 - 09:22 PM

Just a reminder plans for this new world is still going ahead, currently working as much as can on the new world.


Please make sure you enjoy the current world while you still can and don't forget we still need resources donated!
