Hi everyone,

So we're about to release our new voting crate soon, accessible via /vote (can also use /getad). This crate will be entirely free, and there's no daily limit to how many times a day you can use this crate. All you have to do to obtain these crates is watch a 30 second ad.

However, we need your ideas for what you'd like to see included in it! So far we have spawners, money, claimblocks, and random chances at getting donor ranks like Sponsor and Grand.

If you have an idea, you may use this format:

Your idea:

That's it! Looking forward to everyone's responses!

DatPixel originally started out as a basic survival, vanilla, role-play server. It was awesome, you could play with your friends, enjoy Minecraft's practicalities, and use your imagination endlessly. Time continues to pass, and well, we now have a very diverse community.

After a long awaited release of DatPixel's second ever survival server, it's finally coming. Sunday, 2PM EST, it will be accessible to everyone, publicly.

This server is going to be quite different then DatPixel's theme and current servers, including staff, rules, and community. Towny is a complex game mode for competitive play, based upon a stable economy, jobs, and creating the best capital. This won't be average vanilla role play like our current, or the basic of just building. You must strive, you must succeed, you must become the best town, nation, there is.

You may ask yourself... Why is this survival? It's still the basics behind regular survival, but jobs, based economy, nations/towns, and...

Hey everyone,

I ran a small poll on Survival today where we gauged the interests of what new servers or gametypes you want to see on the network. The winning results:
  • Economy survival (52% voted)
  • Skywars (42% voted)
  • HCF (3% voted)
  • Skyblock revamp (3% voted)
And that's a winner for economy survival and skywars! Skywars will basically be more of a reboot from our past skywars setup, with the major changes being teamed skywars, spectating, parties, chest refilling, massively improved kits, map voting, etc. We'll be sure to make it insanely additive and fun as it always was :)

As for economy survival, as the name suggests it is your oldschool SMP survival server with Towny, jobs, player markets, and everything you'd come to expect from an economy survival server. As a past owner of a survival server for nearly 2 years (2011-2013) we'd be sure to make it an awesome experience.

This would essentially be a secondary Survival server on our network, when you...

Hi everyone,

About two weeks ago, we released our newly-revamped Prison 2.0. Just like any new server release, there are bound to be some bugs or missing features you guys want. Throughout the first week of prison being launched we've done our best to fix any bugs that players came across and we continue to look for various feedback/feature requests you guys have.

We want to make Prison the best it can be, and with your help we can get there. Throughout this next week we have the following features planned to be implemented:
  • All new token enchant system with 15+ enchantments including armor enchants and sword enchants
  • /tags with over 25+ selections
  • Slot machines (maybe)
  • Drugs (you farm these at your plot and sell them)
  • Auto events, like KoTH and OITC
If you have any feature requets, or bugs you would like fixed, please post a reply below!

Hello everyone,

I would like to give a warm welcome to @CookieMinester back as part of our management team. He will assist in gamemode creation, server advertisements, and general server administration. Please give him a warm welcome!

Secondly we would like to give a farewell to irLaz, we thank him for his tremendous service and work. Unfortunately, one of his main ideas was removing all servers from the network, resetting survival, and rebranding the network. I did not see this as acceptable and as a result he has resigned.

Lastly, as many of you are well aware by now, our new rank King+ is now officially released and is our highest quality package yet. This package won't last long though! It is only avaliable until August 6th, 2016.

That's all for now. Please be sure to give CookieMinester a warm welcome back if you see him on the network!

The Staff Applications subforum has disabled replies for non-staff members. This is to keep others from necroposting or influencing other's posts on what they should(n't) do.
The section is only to be used to communicate applications between the applicant and staff. Members will still be able to view and rate the application through the post ratings, though won't be able to reply.

We're always working on ways to improve the overall experience on DatPixel and believe this is a step in the right direction.

Hello everyone,

I'd just like to apologize for anyone affected by the temp 10 min bans with our new anticheat. Everyone that was tempbanned banned is now unbanned and we have disabled auto-banning all together.

We have decided to add an arena FFA server, capped at only 20 players at the end of our server compass on datpixel. FFA is one big arena with constant pvp and respawning. The unique idea behind this is it's fully automated to change kits every few hours to appeal to everyone's liking (randomly). It also features a full ELO (scoring) system based on your kill to death ratio as featured on most competitive pvp servers. This server is full out pvp (no teaming, will be moderated) and will be considered our first hardcore competitive pvp based server. We will be adding this Saturday night.

@ItemMeta is our bug fixer upper and new content manager! We will be posting a changelog whenever there's more than around 5 updates and it will appear on our front page just like announcements. This means we will be listening to you guys and finally making some bug fixing changes.

Saturday Stream & Events
Saturday is the biggest advertising DatPixel has ever done. The best part about this stream is it marks the beginning of our summer advertising; you're going to see quite the amount of YouTubers on these next few months. There will be three somewhat known YouTubers (HeyImBee, StrauberryJam, PecketPlays) and their manager who will be creating a new channel with them. They will be going from some of our servers doing events and some game-play. If all goes well, they will return. They will be doing a survival drop-party guaranteed with 3 King & 2 Hero ranks (plus many great perks) given out. We will be expecting a MASSIVE overload of players (don't worry, we have the lag covered), with max slots at 1000. We are prepared for servers to...
