EMC Time Capsule

Jan 8, 2018
EMC Time Capsule
  • The official EMC Time Capsule began on December 23rd, 2014, and has taken place in the December-January period of each year since. The event allows players to contact Senior Staff to receive a dedicated access chest in the capsule and then store any possession they like in it for a year (or longer), when the capsule is re-opened.

    The opening of the capsule was celebrated with a party in all but the first events. Prizes were given out.

    When it is open, the capsule is accessible through the command /v empire_park@time on SMP2 (it is located under /park).

    The 2016-17 occurrence of the event introduced a spreadsheet to allow players to easily find their chest. It is organised by column, which correspond to the numbers assigned to sets of chests in the capsule, and can be found here: http://timecapsulelog.emc.gs/


    Time Capsule events have taken place on EMC in numerous forms, even before the official one was held. They can all be uncovered with a search of our forums, if that is where they were promoted.
