Hello :)

  1. Hi everyone, I just started and love the server.
    The big residence allotments are especially lovely.
    I was wondering how I could go about helping out and getting more involved in the community? I'm still trying to work out where to find things on the forums so I'm having trouble finding information about public resource residences that might need some maintenance help or about specific frontier outposts.
    I do like bumbling around and doing my own thing but I also looooove being useful in the process, so I would love to know more about opportunities to help out.

  2. Welcome to the Empire! Be sure to look out for people in chat who need help and interact with others, you'll meet lots of great people both in-game and on forums :)

    A great resource on the forums is the wiki, can be found via the tab at the top of the wiki.emc.gs link :)

  9. Welcome to the Empire!

    That's not all which is big about this server ;) The available options you got in town to tweak are massive, which is definitely a suggestion for you: don't try to take it all in at once. One step at a time, I'm pretty sure you won't succeed in learning it all, EMC is way too massive :)

    One step at a time, and start small. How about starting with welcoming new players when they arrive (you'll get an in-game announcement) and try to make them feel at home a bit? That already helps a lot, and then just expand on that every once in a while when you feel up to it.

    If you want to know about the Empire, so the server in general, then the wiki is the best place to start. There you can learn about the commands, the available worlds, all the custom items, etc, etc.

    Another good source of information, at least that's what some players keep telling me (for which I'm very grateful!) is this collection of guides right here: https://empireminecraft.com/threads/journal-overview-of-shell-guides.54611/

    Written by a certain somebody, I really wouldn't know :D

    Frontier outposts: keep in mind that most outposts are kept secret. The main reason for that is because land protection is still being worked on by the developers; you don't enjoy the same protection in the wilderness as you have in town. Not yet anyway.

    And that makes many outpost residences very careful with accepting new players into their midst. Though there are several outposts which do keep an open policy. My suggestion is not to focus solely on your own server but also look around. I know of an outpost on SMP2 (Underhelm) which is pretty lenient with membership, as well as an outpost on SMP4 (which name I keep forgetting, but I can look it up for you if you'd like)...

    The advantage of using another server is simple: normally you're playing in town in your own server. As soon as you feel like playing survival you'd switch to another server, say smp4, so you'd do /smp4. Now you're playing survival :)

    Maybe food for thought?

    Well, and my post is also another example on how you can help out I think :p Help players solve their problems and answer any questions they might have (provided of course that you have a useful answer to share) :)

    Hope this helps ;)

    And yeah, hope you're going to enjoy it here.
