EMC Time Capsule

Jul 16, 2017
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).


    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.

    On December 23rd, 2014 the official event began, with the capsule open until December 31st, 2014 at 11:59 pm EMC Time (thread).

    The capsule was opened again on December 30th, 2015 at 9 pm EMC Time and it was closed on January 1st, 2016 at 11:59 pm EMC Time (thread).

    The capsule was opened for the third time on December 31st, 2016 at 4 pm EMC Time and it was closed on January 7th, 2014 at 11:59 pm EMC Time. (thread)

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

    Below is a photo of the current (2016-2017) capsule.
