Hello! How do I join the server?
If you are interested in becoming a member of BadWolfMC, you will need to:
- Complete the membership application.
- Create an account on the forum by using /register in game on the Alpha (main) server. This will give you a link to register which will also link your Minecraft account with your forum account, ensuring that your permissions carry over.
- Then post a message in New Member Introductions to let our members know more about who you are and what you're looking for. Current members are encouraged to be active in the new member application process by commenting on posts from prospective new members.
The approval process averages between 5 minutes to 3 days depending on how lazy the admins are feeling. Please note that we try to verify the age and reputation of every applicant, so the more information you voluntarily provide the faster this process will go! You'll be able to build once your application is approved.
Once approved log onto the BadWolfMC server: play.badwolfmc.com
Remember, BadWolfMC is an adult server! Those under 18 years of age need not apply.
Where can I build?
BadWolfMC’s spawn is protected in a ~300 block radius and there are a few other protected zones scattered around the server. Outside that, you are free to build as you please within the guidelines and as long as it isn't in another player's clearly marked territory. It is common courtesy to ask before building near another player's structures - consult our live map to find the perfect place and use the teleport pads on the spawn compass to get closest to it.
Be careful not to build in the resource worlds! Or if you do, don't make it anything you'll miss. These worlds are reset regularly and exist to prevent our main worlds from getting too torn up. You can get to these from the worlds hub at spawn (use /worlds). We prefer that you do the bulk of your mining in these worlds.
To get back to spawn from anywhere on the server, type /spawn. Guests can also use /spawn if they find themselves stuck.
If you like a challenge or you just want to do some creative building, we have SkyBlock Worlds and a creative PlotWorld on the BadWolfMC Beta Server. To get to Beta you can use click on the sword in the /menu or use the portals at /worlds or /games. The Beta server also houses several of our games including the Elytra Challenges, Parkour Maps, Paintball Arenas, and a few of our PvP Arenas!
How do I set a home?
Homes act as "save points" to which you can teleport. Members get two homes, which can be set by entering /sethome <name>, and accessed by entering /home <name>. To delete a home, use the command /delhome <name>.
How do I protect myself?
Since any griefing is met with a ban and a rollback, you mostly need to be concerned with locking your chests and protecting your animals. BadWolfMC has two plugins that will help protect your things from looters/murderers:
We have a chest-locking plugin that uses signs to protect any Minecraft containers (chests, furnaces, etc.) and entrances such as doors and gates. To lock any of these, place a sign either directly on the container or on the block it’s sitting on and type [Private] on the first line (if you don’t crouch when you place the sign it will fill this in automatically). Your name will show up on the second line, indicating that you have successfully locked your chest. See the tutorial here for more information on allowing others to access your chests.
The Residence plugin allows you to make residences which will automatically secure all blocks and chests inside the residence area. We highly recommend checking out the tutorial since this plugin is fairly expansive.
The killing of animals is not griefing and is not a bannable offense. Our block logging plugin can sometimes detect animal killing and may be able to restore any animals lost, but it's best to be safe and protect your livestock by keeping them in a residence with the butcher flag set to false (/res set <ResidenceName> animalkilling false). This will prevent other players from killing your animals. You might also want to set the ride flag to false, but the best protection is to keep them in an enclosed space inside your residence.
Looting unlocked chests is allowed, but locking your chests is simple and easy. Better safe than sorry!
Typing /res info [resname] will give you information about a particular residence, including where it is in the world. It is a good idea to look up residences before teleporting to them.
How do I make money?
New members start out with $200 in their account, which you can view by typing /balance or /bal. To make money, you can sell certain items at the bank or shops in the mall at spawn. You can teleport to the mall by typing /mall.
BadWolfMC also has a Jobs plugin that allows you to be paid for things like mining, fishing, hunting mobs, etc. You can find more info on available jobs in the tutorials.
Help! I've been looted/ killed /griefed! What do I do?
If you've read the server rules, you will know that looting unlocked chests is allowed globally and PVP is allowed with consent. However, if you are killed without consent a) repeatedly and b) no items are returned, it can be a bannable offense. Keeping items is allowed in consenting PVP.
People can get on each other's nerves. It happens. Chat is loosely moderated, but typing /ignore [playername] will prevent that particular player's chat and messages from showing on your screen.
Griefing of any player-made structure is bannable. BadWolfMC works hard to ensure the safety of your builds. If you find yourself griefed, you can create a ticket to alert the admins or post a message in the Grief Reports forum providing the XYZ coordinates where the griefing happened.
