Latest News & Updates From MINECON 2016

Hey gamers!

Whew! We’re tired, that’s for sure. Here at Minecon 2016 we’ve been running around like a couple of crazy people trying to meet everyone and experience all of the awesome stuff Minecraft and Mojang has put together for us!

In that vein, we’ve been taking a lot of notes over the weekend to help put together this blog post, to outline the latest news and additions coming / released from MINECON 2016. We hope this list helps you prepare for Minecraft in the future, and hopefully give you some great ideas to put together on your Minecraftserver.net server!

Minecraft Chinese Mythology Mash-up


Coming to us on Oct 4, existing owners of Minecraft: Console Edition will be able to download the new Chinese Mythology Mash-Up pack for just $4.99. This pack will include a pre-made world that features an ancient city with dragons dwelling in the high mountains of the world.

It will also include 41 brand-new skins, 13 themed music tracks for your world, and a special map for the Battle mini game. With this new mash-up you’ll get a free update that’ll introduce polar bears and their babies roaming through the frozen biomes, new items, blocks, banners, and terrain generation! Check it out in the video below.

VR & Boss Fights!

If you’re into VR like we are here (HTC VIVE FTW!), you’re going to be really excited about this next update. Coming Oct 18th to the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta, Minecraft Pocket and Minecraft Gear VR Edition, are the very first boss battles for Minecraft, which includes tweaks and changes to the Elder Guardian, Wither Boss, and more.

Along with the VR and boss battles, you will also now have “Addons” which will be simple text files that allow you to tweak the world of Minecraft. You will be able to download free examples on Minecraft.net in the future.

New Input Options

Also during the Oct 18th update, we should be expecting some new input options for Minecraft, including the Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, along with Oculus Touch support coming shortly thereafter.

We're Going to Minecon

See You at Minecon 2016!

That’s right folks, you think we’d miss out on another Minecon in the US? No way! We loved attending Minecon 2015, and we couldn’t wait to get back.

This year, we’ll be sending Jake T, our CEO and Founder, out into the crowd to meet and greet all of you Minecrafters. If you see him, be sure to say hello!

In addition to that, we’ll be sure to have our Minecraftserver.net banner up, and be sure to use the special coupon code useful for any Minecon attendees, exiting customers or not!

We can’t wait to see all of the events and photos coming from this year’s Minecon, and if you haven’t already, be sure to head over to Mojang’s Minecon 2016 website to check out all of the details.

whats new at minecraftserver

What’s New at Minecraftserver.net?

We’ve had a really exciting 2015 here at Minecraftserver.net, and at times it seems we are a bit more quiet than other companies, that’s only because we’re working hard on the backside of things innovating minecraft hosting for our customers and community!

Brand New Website

As you can probably tell we launched a new website in 2015 for Minecraftserver.net, a custom built website using the Bootstrap framework. After many changes, tweaks and iterations, we’re really happy with it, and we hope you are too! We’ve really taken a more family friendly approach, in addition to adding as much useful information to the homepage as possible, so it’s easier for kids and parents to make an educated decision between us, another hosting company, and Minecraft Realms.

New Lower Pricing

After improving our company-owned infrastructure we were able to cut costs directly in overhead costs, allowing us to decrease our pricing across the board. We also offer savings when purchasing more months at once, increasing when buy your hosting plans at 3, 6 or 12 months.

Customized & Upgraded Control Panel

Minecraftserver.net is partnered with Multicraft, the leading minecraft server control panel provider, and we have been offering the beta version of Multicraft 2.0 to a select group of users to help us work out the kinks, and after a few months, we are now able to proudly offer a faster, leaner Multicraft control panel customized for Minecraftserver.net user needs! We’re very happy with the updates and changes to Multicraft 2.0, but we wanted to add a few more options to ensure our customers have everything they need.

Minecraft Pocket Edition

This has been requested a lot by our customers, and we sincerely apologize for the delay. We wanted to make sure we had everything squared away before starting to offer it to the public. We should have it added to our website and your existing control panel before the end of January, and thank you for your patience!

Anything Else?

Yes! We’ve taken on a few new staff members here in 2015 to help improve the service and support of Minecraftserver.net, which means you can expect an even quicker response than our normal ticket response times, and of course calls or pre-sales questions.

We’ve also increased security not only on our sites and control panels, but also our data-center locations in NY and Seattle, providing you even more security using our hosting service.

Thanks

Finally, we’d like to take this time to thank you for choosing Minecraftserver.net. We pride ourselves our competitive pricing, outstanding service and great customer support, and because of you we can keep doing that in 2016.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to open a ticket! We’re always here to help.
