Announcement Introducing Monthly Build Competitions

Hey everyone,

As the title suggests today we are going to be announcing monthly build competitions! We will be running official monthly build competition on the server which will allow you to win some awesome prizes. The theme will be different each month and may relate to an event (Christmas, for example) or could be a generic theme. We hope that these competitions will bring in more players on the server from Joel's channel and also provide more content for our current Creative players.

The theme for this month is 'Kingdoms' - inspired by the newly launched KingdomCraft series on the Smallishbeans YouTube channel.

The competition will close on the 28th of September - winners will be announced a few days later on October 1st - this is also when we will announce the theme for the following month.

In order to enter your build into the competition, you must create a new thread here with the...

Announcement Beanblockz Discord Emoji Competition!

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone's been having a lovely summer(or winter depending on where you live)! As you can tell from the title of this thread, it's competition time here on Beanblockz once again, but this time with a little twist! This competition is for our Discord server, so if you're not familiar with it, please check it out as sometimes we post updates there that we don't post anywhere else. Without getting anymore off track, this is a competition for new custom emojis for our Discord Server - so if you're an artist or just want to give it a shot, then here's your chance to shine.

Competition Rules/Guidelines

  • All entries must be of your own creation and not stolen from somewhere
  • You may submit up to three emojis and all entries must be submitted to this thread
  • While you can submit three images, keep in mind that you can only win once
  • All entries must be uploaded to
  • All entries must comply with...

Announcement Feature Update: Plot Downloads

  • 1,288
  • 22
Hi all,

Today we are announcing a new feature on the Creative server - the ability to download your own plot! This feature has been highly requested on the server and can be very useful in a variety of scenarios: A few examples of these are:
  • You don't have enough plots left and want to build something new, but don't want to delete one of your existing builds forever
  • We run a competition and you want to take a copy of your plot before the Competition Server closes
  • You've worked long and hard on something and want to import it into your own single player world (or your own private server for you and your friends)
There are definitely more ways you can utilise this feature, but we'll leave it to you to come up with those. Right now there is no way to import plots (and we don't think there ever will be) - this is purely exportation. The feature is live and ready to be used on the server for players with the King rank or above.

Instructions are...

Announcement Scheduled Maintenance Announcement

Hi everyone,

The past 36 hours have been crazy!

Our network has been struggling to keep up with the huge amounts of players joining, so we will be doing some maintenance later today to optimise the servers and improve your experience whilst playing. All of our servers will go down tonight (Sunday) at 8PM EST... which is 1AM if you are in the British timezone. During this time, you will not be able to join the BeanBlockz server as we will be enabling maintenance mode.

We do not have an ETA at this time as to how long maintenance will take. We recommend to keep an eye out on this page for more information. During today's scheduled updates, we will also be changing some things up on the Classic server (see poll here), and we will be pushing some mandatory bug fixes for all the issues that you have reported (including giving back claim blocks, etc.). After maintenance, we will post a changelog...

EDIT: We will be doing maintenance on our website on June 4th at 3PM EST to implement our new theme!

IMPORTANT: Two updates which weren't included in the announcement:
  • Creative: Due to the low player counts throughout, Creative 2 will be shut down
  • Skyblock: We can now support more players on one instance, so both Skyblock servers are being merged in one
Hello everyone,

Last week marked the fifth official anniversary of the BeanBlockz server, and in five years time we have developed a one-of-a-kind community. Together we’ve been through all the highs and lows, Minecraft changes and updates to the server. We are extremely grateful to be working with such an amazing group of people full of love and support, and although we realise we haven’t been on top of things lately, today will mark...

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to another update post! I've got some very exciting news to share today regarding a feature that has been requested for a very long time.

Every week, we receive tons of suggestions from our loyal server community, and although we cannot implement everything, our team takes a careful look at what the possibilities are to improve gameplay. Over the course of the past few months, one feature in particular has especially stood out, which is the addition of Wands. I am very excited to share today that two versions of Wands have been added to the server:

Sell Wand
This wand can sell any items that are stored inside of a chest, simply by right clicking the chest with the wand in your hand.
Sell Wands are available in variations of 1000, 2000, and 3000 uses - but also in an unlimited use version.

Condense Wand
This wand can convert any items that are stored inside of a chest, from their minerals form into blocks. (For example: Iron Ingots...

Hey all!

Lucky for you all, last months mod apps weren't an April Fool's joke like the rumors have stated! Meaning...we spent the last month going over all the applications - and trust me there were a lot of really good ones! - but sadly we cannot accept everyone. We're very happy that everyone wants to help keep the server a happy and safe place. So, without further delay, I'd love to introduce to you all(and wish them all a lot of luck in the coming months!) our newest members of staff!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to let you know that chat tags are now available as an add-on on the store!

These will be updated over time, so let us know if you are missing anything you would like to see added!

Announcement Our new Friends System is now live!

Hi everyone,

We're back with an exciting announcement today! As you may remember, some time ago our team was working on a new in-game friends system. Using this feature, players would be able to add and interact with their friends on the server through an easy and simple to use GUI. Unfortunately this feature had to push this feature back several times - but fear no more! I'm very excited to announce today that this system is available to all members on our server starting right now! Learn more on how to use this feature below.

Adding Friends
It is extremely easy to add new friends on the server. Simply open the friends menu by typing /friends, and hit the "Add Friend" option. There, enter the full in-game name of the player you would like to add as a friend (remember: no nicknames!), and the server will automagically send a request to that player to add them to your friends list. Adding friends is also possible through the /friends...

Hello you wonderful beans!

As you know, during the month of January we had moderator applications open. During that time we received so many excellent applications from you all and we're very happy to see everyone wanting to help make this server a better place.

Hi everybody,

We’re not perfect. Over the past few weeks there has been some controversy surrounding the revamp that was released, and via this post I would like to address some of the recent criticism that we’ve been receiving. Hopefully we can regain your trust and work towards a solution! Here we go...

Ranks Revamp
We have heard your voices in regards to some of the recent rank changes, and realise that some of you may be missing perks or experiencing alterations to an item that you paid for. Whilst we were working on the revamp, the team reviewed all of the current rank permissions, and processed edits where we thoughts those were necessary. I would like to highlight a few of these edits below.

Creative Rank Update
Whilst reviewing the previous Creative Rank permissions, we concluded that the majority of our ranks were extremely unbalanced. Lower tiered ranks were configured to receive most of the perks, and higher tiered ranks were...

Hi everyone,

This is a short announcement to let you know we will be pushing back the revamp launch to tomorrow at 1PM EST. We have run into an unexpected hardware issue with one of our main database nodes, which will require additional time and maintenance before we can put the network online.

We are working around the clock to fix these issues, and hope we can see you at launch tomorrow! In the mean time, we have put our new website online!
