Hello everyone!

Our staff team has been really busy getting everything ready for the Towny v5.0 release last few months. With Towny up and running, we decided it was about time to launch another epic creative contest for all our builders, and it is finally here. We're proud to present: Shadow Kingdom's 8th Building Contest.

Due to the revamp of our donation store, the prizes are a little bit different than other contests.

Just like the last contests, the theme will be decided by your votes.

Timetable:
  • June 19th - June 22th: Theme Poll.
  • June 25th: Theme announcement, building begins!
  • July 23th: Building ends, judging starts.
  • July 30th: Results are published.
Poll:
  • Pirates and Parrots
    Ahoy, Matey! Allow me to invite you to my mighty ship. Hoist the sails and climb into the crows nest. Next stop on our epic travels is palm tree island. Together with my crew of buccaneers we'll conquer the seven seas in search of the treasure. Can you conquer the contest with this theme?
  • Steampunk:
    The sound of a running engine, the wind from a fan blowing through your hair. There’s thousands of cogwheels that don't make sense. A number of hot air balloons land, and you can already see the cranes getting ready to transfer cargo to a large boat. What will you do with steam power?
  • Journey to new galaxies:
    T-10 seconds and counting, Activate main engine hydrogen burnoff system.
    T-6 seconds, Ground launch sequencer commands main engine start.
    T-0 seconds, Solid Rocket Boosters, and we got lift-off!
    Spaceships and cities. Asteroids and astronauts. What will you find when you go beyond where we've ever been? The very furthest corners of the universe are your playground in this space-themed building contest.
  • Nature will finds a way:
    The most beautiful plants, great mountains and breath-taking landscapes. Nature always finds a way through the harshest conditions or through the never-ending progress in science. In this theme you could make epic landscapes, nature taking back a city or even a biopunk themed castle!
    Will you show us how nature changes us? Or how we change nature?

Hello everyone,

Towny v4.0 & v4.1 have been great additions to the series of Towny servers we have had on this network so far. Towny v4.0 was released on July 18th 2020 in Minecraft version 1.15 and many other features for the best player experience. Later, Towny v4.1 was released to upgrade to the newer Minecraft version 1.16. Although this server has been very successful, the time has come to put it to rest. Today, I am proud to present the newest in the Towny series: Towny v5.0! With this server, we aim to release the best Towny server on our network so far by combining what we learned throughout our previous Towny servers and the feedback we received from you. This, together with its 1.18 support, will help us achieve that.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole community for their support and feedback, after all it is only thanks to you that we are able to release this server! In the following paragraphs I will highlight the new main features and changes.

New spawn
The current spawn build is one that will never be forgotten. It’s beautiful and iconic for the Towny series as it was featured in both Towny v3.0 and Towny v4.0. However, the time has come to say goodbye to our old friend and start loving something new. Towny v5.0 start off in Minecraft version 1.18. This brings a whole lot of new building opportunities, which @JST took with both hands. The new spawn is an amazing and grand design that combines the new building blocks in ways Towny has never seen before! It features numerous things like a PvP arena, tutorial rooms, … and also the largest marketplace in Towny history!

Complete reworked Treasure Hunt
We are thrilled to announce that the Treasure Hunt game will never be the same. Towny v5.0 will feature a complete makeover of every part of the game. The Treasure Hunts will now be handled by a custom plugin, made by @Rubyo3000 . The basic game mechanics will stay the same, but the new plugin brings a lot more features like keeping track of your statistics in the game, special rewards that can only be found in certain regions, different number of crates depending on the number of players online and much more.

Furthermore, the game will take place in a completely new and custom...
