Athion Survival - Mining Week
With new projects currently underway, our government finds itself in need of various mining materials! As such, it is my pleasure to introduce to our survival players the first ever "Mining Week"! For the next 7 days, miners will enjoy a 30-50% increased /sell price for Coal, lapis, redstone, iron, gold, stone, and cobble!

In further news, a series of diseases have been found in the fish recently being sold to the server, so we have been forced to reduce the price of all fish for the next few days. We expect the disease to be ridden of, conveniently, at the same time that mining week will be over.

Hail Athion!​
Athion Official Athion Survival Launch

We’d like to thank all of our community members for helping us out of beta. Make sure that you use /kit collector in the survival hub to get your Beta-Tester collectors items! With our launch we’ve released many new features and worlds

New Survival World
The brave and daring Sycoinc has returned from afar with great news: a new world has been discovered that is completely habitable! Much like our current survival world, this world is completely habitable and home to many different kinds of biomes, huge mountains, great seas, island chains, and more! Be the first to establish a settlement in this great new world: access it through the survival portal at the Survival Hub!

Want to move your home from the "old" survival world to the new one? Contact an Admin!

Nether
Our gallant scientists at Athion Research and Development have developed teleportation methods and have created a portal to another dimension! Labeled “The Nether”, you can access this world by purchasing a temporary passport using the /shop command and then travel through the portal in the “resources” hub.

The nether will be reset on a cyclical basis: don't leave anything there that you don't want to lose.

End
Our… “genius” scientists at Athion Research and Development have gallantly taken control of a black hole they accidentally created in their research and development center and have discovered whats on the other side: a strange world full of floating islands made of some foreign substance resembling inedible cheese and home to innumerable Enderman pests! We’ve aptly called this world “The End!” (But we promise, its only the beginning for your adventure!) Not much else is known about this world, however we’ve allowed access to this world on a 2-hour passport basis, which you can purchase from /shop!

The end...​

We vote on a range of aspects for your builds and creations for the contest world, here is the below outline of what we look for when judging
  • Design: This is rated out of 10, we look over the plots for the design, layout and how well the concept has been executed. This does not rely on the quality of the build.
  • Terrain: This is rated out of 10, we look at what terraforming has been done on the plot, if an existing landscape is provided we rate on how good or how bad it was edited. If it started as flatland we rate on how well you have terraformed and how it suits the theme.
  • Structure: This is rated out of 10, We rate how detailed your structures are along with how well they fit your theme and the contest's theme.
  • Organics: This is rated out of 10, we rate how detailed your organics are along with how they fit into the theme of your plot along with the contests theme. You do not have to build organics but we still rate this either way.
  • Completion: This is rated out of 10, we go over your plot to see how complete your project is, builds that are half build, empty or large sections with 'filler builds or content' would score lower than fully complete builds, interiors and terrain....

Hey all,

I recently found this nice web app / downloadable app for voice and text chat that looks like it has potential. It runs inside a web browser so no need to download anything (but has option for desktop app to be downloaded).

It has a decent list of future features coming up with some integration into games planned and the voice quality is rather good.

I am testing this as this is a way for users without skype or who do not want to give out their info to unknown people to be able to easily chat and interact with users while on our server or offline along with the option of not having to download anything to your computer (so can use at school possibly)

Let me know what you think of it, currently we haven't much perms or things set up on it but its more for testing now until.
