Unofficial Empire Guide

Discussion in 'Community Discussion' started by jkrmnj, Aug 24, 2013.

  1. Welcome to the Unofficial EMC guide. Hopefully both new players and old ones can find some useful information.

    Q: Why would I make this and what is it?

    A: EMC is constantly updating and the Official guide isn't so I have decided to make an unofficial one. Here you can find information on EMC in one easy place. I have included links in the guide to outside sources that explain stuff pretty well. This includes the Official guide since not all of the information is outdated. I know a wiki is being made but it may be a while until it is finished.

    Q: I found a mistake in the guide. What should I do.

    A: Please pm me with this info. I want to keep this thread clean and useful. I will do my best to fix it asap.

    Q: I want a section added. Now what?

    A: Please pm this to me too. I want this to be full and comprehensive so any suggestions are welcome:

    Q: Could you post a link to another great guide?

    A: if you know of another guide that is useful then post it in a comment. This is important to other players and many would value from seeing it in the thread. I will also try to add a link to it in the other guides section.

    Q: I have a guide I wrote for EMC too. What can I do with it.

    A: You can pm with a text file and I will include it into the main post. I promise to give credit to you.

    Q: I have a question about this guide and/or EMC.

    A: There is forum section for EMC support. I would recommend posting there but if you really want to then post here if it is a simple question that can be answered easily. If the question is a about the guide then post here.

    Credit to the Empire guide for a lot of this.

    EMC is a survival multiplayer server (aka smp) and there is NO PVP anywhere. EMC runs off of Bukkit which is a special Minecraft server that runs plugins. Lots of EMC plugins are custom coded by the staff. You can find more info on the many things that make EMC great in the other sections.

    When you first log into EMC you may be a little confused at first. Don't worry because it is easy to learn. First is the tutorial maze. The tutorial maze is to make sure you know what you are doing and help you. You receive prizes for completing questions. When you come across a question you don't know then visit either this guide or the official EMC guide to look for the answer. All answers are in the Official guide if you look hard enough.

    Once you get out of the tutorial you will likely be greeted by the players. EMC is very friendly towards new players and will gladly help you. If you aren't greeted don't feel bad. Not all players watch the chat and some may be in the wild and can't greet you. Now is is time to claim a residence. Unless you are a supporter you can only claim one. Type /v open to find an open residence. You should receive a message after teleporting that explains claiming. Type /res claim number to claim a residence.

    Now that you have a private residence to build on you need supplies. There are 2 ways to get supplies. You can mine them normally in the wild or buy them at shops. There is an EMC shop but DON'T BUY THERE. It is very overpriced. Instead you can shop at player made shops. Ask on the server you joined for a good mall. If you are on Smp1 then 1010 has a list.

    This should get you started. For more in depth info see the other sections.

  2. There are a few different worlds to can play visit.

    Description: This is a safe world. It is full of residences that you can access.
    Chat: The town has a few different chat channels.
    /chat town: you can chat with everyone in town
    /chat local: you can chat with anyone within 100 blocks of you
    /chat residence: you can chat with everyone in the residence you are on
    In town you can see everyone who chats in town chat. For more chat information in town click here.

    Description: This is a world for wilderness exploring. You can mine resources here although it isn't recommended. The main purpose of the frontier is for outposts.
    Chat: you can only chat in local chat in the Frontier. You are automatically switched to local chat in the frontier unless you were previously I residence chat.

    Description: The wastelands are for mining resources. They are reset often.
    Chat: Same as frontier

    In the frontier and wastelands chests are unlocked and can be stolen from although it is against the rules. To protect your stuff click here to see how to lock stuff in the wilderness.
    There are nether and normal versions of the Wilderness and frontier.

    Credit to ICC for some of the flags.
    A residence is like a home. By default only you can do stuff on your residence. With /res pset [playername] [flag] [true:false] you can let other players do things on your res. The flags are

    - boat *
    - boatplace
    - boatdestroy

    - minecart *
    - minecartplace
    - minecartdestroy
    - tntminecart
    - storageminecart
    - hopperminecart
    - poweredminecart

    - enderpearl

    - shear

    - firework

    - anvil

    - villager

    - kill

    For more residence info you can click here to see the page on the official guide.

    Click here to see how to make and use a sign shop along with some rupee information.

    The Official guide is missing that you can type /iteminfo to view a number that is used to replace the item name for special items like enchanted stuff. You can also put [slot #] to sell from a specific slot in your chest.

    The vault is how you transfer items across EMC servers.
    Click here to see how to use it.

    With EMC you can join together in groups to chat and play. Typing /g will show a list of group commands. With groups you can share xp when fighting monsters, mine faster, and fight harder. All group commands can be found in the groups part of the commands section.

    You can set a pressure plate to teleport to a specific area on your res or to another res.
    1. Type /res tpsign Where you want the pressure plate to teleport to
    2.Directly under the place your pressure pate will teleport players to place a sign with the word teleport on the first line.
    3.Place a pressure plate directly above the sign.
    Now when a player steps on a pressure plate it will teleport them.

    Emc is full of custom stuff and the survival update is a perfect example. The survival update added enraged versions of zombies, skeletons, and creepers. There are also nether hounds which are found in the nether. All are immune to fire and don't burn in the daylight. They are also faster, stronger, and have more health than there normal versions. You can identify them as having particles around them and when you move your courser over them it says enraged zombie, skeleton, or creeper. There are also two new boss mobs. Momentus and Marlix. Momentus is a giant zombie and Marlix is a giant skeleton. Both can suck you into them and trample you. Momentus can spawn enraged zombies to help him fight so be careful. There are also new mob drops that have been added to the game.
    Shiny flesh: is just like normal flesh but is shiny and more valuable.
    Shiny arrow: They are somewhat better than normal arrows.
    Zombie virus: This gives you greater protection but also causes many bad consequences.
    Bosses will also drop weapons and armor sometimes. These are much better than normal armor and can be sold for a high price.

    You can find the Empire Guide here and an entire forum section for guides written by staff here.

    That is it. I hope this helped you and remember that you can suggest a section for me to make.
