Hey IDMC Network!
IT’S FINALLY JUNEEEEE! June means school's almost out (if you’re still in school) or has already ended, which also means that it’s summertime! If you haven’t had them already, good luck on all your end of the year tests, but that’s beside the point. This is a Minecraft server, we don’t need to be worrying about school.
You’ll notice in this edition that some of our future plans have changed, we’ll be introducing other things instead, but I’ll get more in depth with that later. Be sure to check out the newsletter next month!

Staff Changes >
Still not much happening in the land of staff... By the way, if you’re interested, be sure to apply here, but read this before doing so!
@Tyncci for becoming May’s Staff of the Month!
As many of may or may not know, KitPvP was removed from IDMC. We’ve been taking time to reflect on our players’ feedback to see how we could improve it, but in the end, players were still unhappy. We see that fans of KitPvP were upset by the removal of KitPvP, but don’t worry!
We will be bringing back KitPvP, but reforming it into BattleGrounds. BattleGrounds is a PvP server where you purchase items using tokens. BattleGrounds is like KitPvP, but without all the crazy kits! Instead, you use your tokens to purchase cool items in the BattleGrounds token shop. Everyone starts off with 1 kit, there is no inventory death drops and no item durability. Earn your way up and have the blast of a lifetime!
Creative’s time on IDMC has unfortunately come to an end. The game mode has been officially removed, instead of it being discouraged and just removed from the menu. The deletion of Creative was due to it being dead a lot of the time. Some of you may be sad, but others may not care because they never built on there, however, for those of you who are sad, don’t fret! The map download is available here! Everyone’s build is still here, just not on the server to be enjoyed with other players.
We apologize to those who did enjoy building with others on there, but there’s always CRP for that! We hope you understand.
The way farming works on SRP has been reworked. Since SRP mob collisions have been enabled, entity limits only apply within GriefPrevention claims, mob spawners operate faster, and natural mob spawns around the server have been improved
Hardcore Survival >
Like KitPvP, Hardcore Survival (also known as Hardcore Vanilla), was temporarily discouraged/removed. It was usually dead, but we’ve decided instead of completely removing it, we’d have, “seasons”, of HCS.
Seasons will last two weeks. Borders are smaller and player statistics will be recorded. At the end of each season, players will be rewarded according to top kills, hours played, and blocks mined. Vanilla will be a quick, fun game mode that will earn you prizes such as titles, ranks, and more!
General Updates >
A series of minor changes including:
As always, changes are viewable here!
- nSurvival (1.8 combat, added TreeFeller, disabled player collisions, improved/updated plugins)
- SurvivalRP (fixed bugs/performance issues, mob limits/collision, removed jobs, disabled weather)
- Factions (removed King of the Hill, disabled player collisions, nerfed CE enchants, increased CE prices)
Future Plans >
The big plan for IDMC as of right now is the introduction of BattleGrounds (remake of KitPvP), a new and improved Skyblock server, and a PE edition of IDMC. The production of OP Prison and mini-games will be delayed as a result, but I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed for these other projects. Stay tuned for next time!
