- Empire Minecraft has enhanced the way you can store your horses and llamas. Instead of building a real stable on your residence, you can use a virtual stable using the /stable command. This makes it a lot easier to transport your horses and llamas all across the Empire!
What are stables?(top)
Stables are exactly what they sound like - just virtual! The stable is a cross-server storage system that can be used for any horse (regular, donkey, or mule) or llama you own. Unlike eggified horses and llamas, horses in your stable keep their attributes and armor (mules and llamas with attached inventories cannot be stabled), and can be accessed from any world.
How do I use my stable?(top)
If you are riding a horse or a llama that you own (use the /horse command to find out), you can store it in your stable. Use the command /stable store, and it will be transported into your stable. You can only use this for horses and llamas you actually own, so you need to have tamed them yourself.
When you want to get your stabled animals out again, just use the command /stable summon, and the one you stored last will appear. You can also summon a specific horse by specifying the number of the stable behind it. For example, the command /stable summon 2 would summon the second horse in your stable.
Summoning is free in the Town, but it will cost you 100 Rupees in any other world. However, if you own 10 stables, summoning a horse or a llama will always be free, regardless of your location.
To get an overview of your stable, just use the /stable list or /stable command.This is what your stable could look like.
The white text is the horse's name. Types include "Horse," "Donkey," and "Mule." Details explain what the horse looks like. Speed and jump is a number between 1-200%, HP is the amount of half hearts a horse has, and Equip is whatever the horse is wearing (saddles, armor, etc).
Tamed horses that are left in the Frontier/Wilderness worlds are subject to the Derelict Policy. To stop a horse from becoming derelict, you must go near it at least once every 15 days. If a horse becomes derelict, it will become untamed.
Non-supporters start with one stable slot. However, supporters can purchase additional stables for 25,000 Rupees each, up to the limit listed below for each level. If you have reached your limit, you can use a Stable Voucher - purchasable from players in-game, or you can obtain them in the Mail by voting at certain voting streaks - to gain more stables than your rank allows.
Purchasable stable slot limit for supporters(top)
While free players are only able to store one horse in their stable at a time, supporters are able to store more without the use of a Stable Voucher. Here are the limits for this feature:
Iron: 2 horses
Gold: 3 horses
Diamond: 5 horses
Unlike your Vault, you do not have to pay to upgrade your stable. All slots that your player group is allowed (i.e., supporter level) are automatically given to you.
You can increase the amount of horses you can store by using a Stable Voucher. To use a voucher, hold it and right-click. With these, you can have a maximum of 20 stable slots (excluding any automatic additions from being a supporter).
Once 10 stable slots have been reached, summoning horses in any world is free.
Is my horse protected?(top)
Yes! Even in the wilderness or another player's residence, no-one - except you - can take items out of a horse's chest or even damage it, and players you have given permission to can only ride it.
