Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in 14/05/2015 - YAMS gets a Creative World
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!

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!
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in Places of interest in the new mining world
I thought I'd start a thread where we can put the coordinates for any places of interest we have found in the new mining world. I or others have posted most of these in different threads so I thought it would be good to gather them in one thread.
First off there have been 3 ocean monuments found at this point (at least that I know of). The first 2 can be found at the coordinates below and have been mostly, if not completely, drained of water so everyone can move around easily in them. Also, the elder guardians have been slain in both.
x = 2185, z = 3177
x = 2000, z = 700
The third one I have found just recently. With this one I thought it would be a good idea to not drain it completely so that everyone can use it as a "hunting ground" for guardians. The elder guardians have been slain but there are plenty of regular guardians to hunt down. I have gone through and created air pockets in almost every room so a player can easily get to air while hunting. In certain rooms I have only made partial air pockets in because of openings between floors. Leaving the water in these ceiling spaces is important for both players and guardians to get between floors. (Added note: there are some rooms that are completely drained. Use these to rest from swimming or to place crafting tables and furnaces as needed.)
ocean monument for hunting
x = -1957, z = 2343
Near this third monument is a jungle that contains a jungle temple. When I got to the temple the only thing in the chest was rotten flesh. However, there are ocelots in the area and I saw a couple of melon patches as well.
x = -2302, z = 2569
The other day a came across a dungeon with a zombie spawner. I also saw some wood planks on the ceiling nearby. I didn't have the time to explore but I wouldn't be surprised to find it to be part of a mineshaft.
dungeon/zombie spawner - likely mineshaft nearby
x = -720, y = 19, z = 49
The last thing I have for now is the location of a stronghold. I have explored a little bit of it myself. So far I have found one library. I suspect someone will have to do some mining to get to the rest of the stronghold. The coordinates I am listing is for the ground level entrance I made to get to the stronghold.
x = 726, z = -114
That's all I have for now. If anyone has found something not listed above please post it to this thread.
Thanks and have fun mining, hunting, exploring!

Looking to trade with someone? Be it buying or selling you can use this topic to find people to trade with! Post below with specific details of what you are looking to buy/sell. Bad example post: Need glass Good example post: Looking for 64 pieces of blue stained glass (normal block not pane), I can pay in iron or gold. Can try and pay in other items if needed. We can arrange price in game. You can find the trade centre in spawn town, there's also warp to it, you'll find the warp somewhere inside!
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in 06/04/2015 - New Minecraft world for YAMS
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!
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in 09/01/2015 - YAMS 4th Year Anniversary
I have an idea! Why not hold another Quintathalon? Since the last one, tons of new games have been added or changed (could even have color shuffle/TNT run). Also, this doesn't require much set up, the hardest part would be arranging a time when people would be able to participate. For anyone unaware the events done last time were maze race, PVP, spleef and boat race (we now have the super long course available to us). This time around the PVP place is a samurai dojo thing, and we also have color shuffle, tnt run, strike a light, lights out, chess and checkers. There are also some team based games like blocky, paintball, and capture the flag if we wanted to have a tournament type thing there. Again, this is just an idea, but if you would like to see an event like this feel free to voice your ideas and comment when you would be able to join us.
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in YAMS Castaway July 2014 #4 [OFFICIAL]
YAMS Castaway returns...
What is YAMS Castaway?
Basically itâ€™s a survival world where you and others are castaways (a person who has been shipwrecked and stranded in an isolated place) and must start from scratch.
Is YAMS Castaway dangerous?
It's a pure survival world, so creepers and such are on... so yes it could be dangerous if you are not careful.
Will I have to work as a team?
Absolutely yes, you shouldn't just disappear into the wildness never to be seen again, I would like to see a thriving community built from scratch! Work together to build a town/community, don't just build your own thing on your own somewhere where you don't take part.
How do we access it?
Head on down to the bottom of spawn tower, youâ€™ll find two portals.
Wait two portals?
Yes, you can also visit Castaway 2013, itâ€™s a view only world but I really suggest you take a look to see how we worked together before you head to the main world of castaway 2014.
Will I lose my inventory?
Yes in castaway 2014 you will lose your inventory, at least what ever you have on you so best to leave everything at home. You wonâ€™t lose your inventory in castaway 2013 and can /home or /spawn etc to return.
Can I set my home inside castaway?
Thats a no in both worlds, in addition in castaway 2014 to get out of the world you will have to kill yourself. This is to keep inventories separate.
How long do we have?
2 weeks, its usually only a week or so but I'm feeling generous!
Can I start now?
Yes go and visit the two worlds and start discussing with your fellow castaways what to do, there's no building rules as such!
No building rules at all?
Correct, it's up to you and your fellow castaways to decide how your buildings look and how much space you use, you and the rest of the team have an entire world. Make your own judgements. Just remember to keep yourselves under control, in past times we have had to enforce rules because people got carried away, don't make me do that.
Anything else I should know?
I wont tolerate griefing/stealing (except the enderman and creepers) and such as we still are a family friendly server. Please donâ€™t misbehave and ruin for everyone else by making me add extra rules.
Good luck have fun and don't let me down! Work together to create a wonderful community within a community!
Any questions, ask below!
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in South: Maplehold
Sorry, been pretty busy the past few months with school and what not, and will be until I am out (the 26th) but felt I should keep people informed of the town affairs, also there hasn't been any discussion for a month
Warehouse: Not really too big, but just wanted to note that the entire warehouse has officially been sorted and is now fully operational! (totally not a secret weapon )
Roller Coaster: Been nearly 7 months since this was started, so lets break some more ground! At its current state, the roller coaster is going through an "abandoned mine shaft" (fake one that is being made) and at the end of the tunnel, there is a twisty cave system that we could also use. I don't know exactly what we are doing there yet, but if you are on, feel free to have a go at something, remember you don't need me to be there, and all YAMS members are invited to help build.
If there are any questions about Maplehold, or suggestions for builds, post away!
P.S. I will most likely be on tomorrow, and if there are not that many evictions, will work on the roller coaster
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in New public build warehouse now open [OFFICIAL]
I would just like to announce that the new YAMS public build warehouse is now open, massive thank you again to madrad for his help on getting this sorted with me.
You may find the entrance to this new warehouse at the bottom of spawn tower, last floor.
As a reminder:
This public build warehouse has been setup for use on non town public builds and build challenges. Please do not take from here unless you are certain you are allowed to. If in doubt ask a member of staff who will help you. Only take the minimum amount of materials you need, don't for example take out diamonds to make tools when we have stone or iron tools already crafted in the chests. Also don't leave the items at your house or leave the game with them on you. Finally do not use them for your own personal use. Thank you.
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in Games, events and builds room [OFFICIAL]
As discussed in the Future of YAMS topic, I was thinking about adding a room with signs displaying warps/commands to all the different games we have in YAMS as not everyone is aware we have all these games, there used to be signs in the old spawn tower (though not warps) but they got took out.
Well I'm pleased to announce at the bottom of spawn tower you can find a place that lists most of the games we have along with required warps/commands to get to them, there is also a community build teleport location - if a moderator ever wants a teleport button to a big town build, they only need ask me.
Please go and take a look. Good or bad idea? Feedback please.
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in The Ender Dragon Statue [OFFICIAL]
Ender dragon statue completed this morning! Big thank you to everyone who helped complete this over so many months.
I will probably find a better location for him at some point, or move him closer to the rails, being as big as he his I'll have to do it in sections as moving big structures like this can crash the server for few minutes.
I have removed /warp dragon till we find a better use for the dragon, maybe a roller coaster inside or something, lots of space.
I have moved all unused wool to the spawn warehouse, if anyone would be so kind to sort the chests I would appreciate it, they are located on the left hand side where the sorting area is near the rails inside the warehouse. Thank you.
Nikki Nutta Palmer reacted in 01/04/2014 - The Future of YAMS
As I'm sure you are all aware yesterday was April Fools day and I played the joke of stepping down and promoting TheTimeMeddler, had any YAMS player been on in the morning I would have got them to become joke admin but no one was on so TheTimeMeddler was used which actually worked quite well with his previous antics!
I can safely say that while it was funny writing the list of changes, most of them will not be happening....
Mostly being, that one of them is... has!
Lucky its not a bad change, but rather last weekend I changed us over from CraftBukkit to Spigot to improve our server performance, this actually appears to have helped for lag around spawn, at least for me when I tested without Optifine.
Hope you enjoyed the bit of fun and if you would like to see the nether version of spawn you may go to /spawn and step on the random pressure plate in the middle of the quartz floor on top.
Long live the bright future of YAMS, I can not wait!
