As our server slowly grows and changes, everything else surrounding the server also will likewise grow and change. After the server maintenance over the weekend, the server upgraded to 1.7.2. With tons of lag, the new features still invited players along. The server then changed its server JAR to Spigot from Bukkit. This completely eliminated lag serverside.

During the maintenance, the seniors of BH gathered to create "NewCity".

I'll Miss You Guys

Posted by TheBlockMage on December 10, 2013 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (4)

Hey everybody. I would just like to let all of you know that I am going to be taking a break from Minecraft and the social media attached to it for personal reasons so I can focus on some other things right now. This is an amazing server and I will miss all of you very much. This server is a "diamond in the rough" and you are all in very good hands with Jen, Randy and CJ. I'm letting the UHC server run it's course till January 5th and then I will let it run out. 

Thanks again and h...

Ok people. 

We have shut the server down for administration. The server will be moving over  to 1.7 in this short period. The server will be gaining a new city that will be located in a newly generated biome. This is so new and old players can go from there to look for new places to set up base.  We hope to have the server back online for Monday. Please do not worry as this is will enhance your experiance on Block Hermit.

Thanks for your  patience.

We Gun Git You, Griefers!

We are now able to see all that you do!

Big brother's at it again! We recently used LogBlock to log players' block placement in the server and though it proved useful, since most player made structures are protected, griefers managed to find underground chests placed by players who'd drop off a few things while mining and stole items from within it. Unfortunately, this has happened twice. Unable to properly accuse these griefers due to lack of evidence, we had to wait until some ...

A big thank you to Randy_McCrab, TheBlockMage, 123SpitFire123, and Xishwam0 for giving support, participating, and all around being awesome during our adventure to end the End Dragon.

A big NO THANK YOU to the End's spawn pad which had spawned us floating in the middle of nowhere off the edge of the End.

We have recorded this adventure. Watch it

Nether Mall! (plus PlugIns)

Posted by BlockHermit on July 20, 2013 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)

With the introduction of the Nether we were given access to a whole new world! And with this a portal has been erected in the city, albeit a tiny bit hidden. If a player enters the nether through this portal, they can get to the nether mall! Nether mall is unfinished as of this post but players will be able to buy the little stores to make their own mall shops! Whether it be functioning or completely for looks (even if you want players to donate blocks to you), you'll have complete control ov...

One Point Six Point Two!

We can finally go into the nether!

The minecraft update 1.6.2 introduced so many new things that players were dying to try them out on our server but alas, we waited until Bukkit released a build compatible with 1.6.2 and the owner waited until a stable build was released. But we got impatient so we brought it about early! So we are currently on the development version of 1.6.2 compatible bukkit. This is unstable and dangerous as it can corrupt files but we have a backup ;) I'm s...

No Nether? But you can still have nether-y things!

Posted by BlockHermit on June 28, 2013 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (0)

The nether is a fearfully dangerous place with tons of wonderful resources and building materials that you can use to your liking. That is... if we had opened the nether. Because the 1.6 update says that we will be getting chests with rare items and the like in nether fortresses, we are not allowing anyone into the nether until the update is available on the server. While yes, 1.6 is out, it is not out or recommended for bukkit until 1.6 itself is stabilized. This made it impossible for playe...
