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.
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...
Today I’m happy to announce the start of our annual Easter build competition. The competition is similar to previous - we’re giving you a month to build the best Easter themed plot you can! There's a timelapse of the awesome spawn Joel created available on his channel here. This video also covers the content of this forum post.
The competition will close on the 14th of April - winners will be announced one week later on the 21st.
In order to enter your build into the competition, you must create a new thread here with the following information:

With every competition there are a few rules - we ask that you follow these otherwise your entry may not be counted.
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. Unfortunately, we only can pick so many of you all to become staff and after a long time in picking out the right candidates, we narrowed it down to whom we'd like to have join our team this time around. We wish the best of luck to all of the new staff!
Without any further delay, let's give a warm welcome to...
Just a quick heads up that we are finally launching the Prison Server part of our recent revamp! It's been a long time coming, and the team has been working extremely hard to try and get this out to you as soon as possible! The new server includes some nifty new features and we invite you to come check it out. Just as all the other gamemodes, progress has been reset, however you will keep any ranks which you have purchased. The same goes for cosmetic packages, as these will be available on Prison as well.
Our Christmas competition is now over! Thanks to everyone who entered - there were hundreds of awesome builds submitted! Joel has went through every entry and picked his top ten, which we’re happy to announce are as follows:
Congratulations! If you are in the above list I will be sending you a message shortly to confirm details for your prizes. Thanks to everyone who entered this year - if you didn't place, better luck next time! We’ll be back with more build competitions in the near future.
We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are prepared for a New Year! With 2019 right around the corner we thought we'd start the year off by opening up staff applications so that we can bring in some new faces to the team to help us keep the server running! As such, we're looking for mature, active(on forums too!), reliable, dedicated and trustworthy players to join our ranks! If you're interested, make sure you read everything to find out how you can go about applying for a staff position!
In order to ensure we pick the right players for the position, we have a set process for applications that you can find below:
Forum Application: This is the application form linked at the bottom of the page. The application contains a standard set of questions which will be used to find out some details about you, which will allow us to decide whether or not we think you're a suitable candidate.
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...
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...
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!
Today marks an extremely exciting day for the BeanBlockz Community. For the past couple of months, the BeanBlockz team has been working extremely hard on a secret new project. And even though it’s been a long time coming… It is now finally ready! Today we are revealing the new BeanBlockz Network, and we couldn’t be more excited to show what’s to come!
This post aims to explain what will be happening to the server, how things will be transferred, and what our intentions are going forward. Let’s not waste any more time, and jump right into it!
We are classifying this new network as the “BeanBlockz Revamp”... and with a revamp, come new gamemodes! We have re-built the entire network from the ground up, improved our infrastructure, and jam-packed it with quality content. This means that all the existing gamemodes will reset, and you will join an entirely new...
