Long description, tl;dr features list below:

Since 2010, the Summa Crossroads Minecraft server is built on a very simple but very effective core idea – that awesome gameplay should be the focus of development and maintenance. We’ve gone through multiple maps, updates, and plugin sets, always trying to find that delicate balance of fun, challenge, and drive. We’ve been around since alpha, and we’ve learned a lot. This server has been a lot of things for a lot of people, but it’s always been a good time.

Today we feature a vast 16,000 by 16,000 map sprawling from edge to edge with beautiful custom biomes, hand-painted and lovingly crafted to bring the sense of adventure and vast scale that you may recall from your first days of Minecraft. Some residents have built towns and gathered the resources to construct their own waypoints, which you can unlock the ability to fast-travel to by venturing there yourself. Much of the landscape is yet unexplored, and each week new adventures are introduced.

For those who enjoy a good challenge, the overworld is bustling with deep caves, and the monsters that come out at night will be no allies. PvP arenas let you challenge your friends and humiliate your foes – paying you out for putting up a good fight. The Underdome and Woodland arenas let you demonstrate your gladiatorial might against wave after wave of things that go bump in the night, with spoils to those who entertain. Vast parkour challenges, one of which has only been completed by one player in the history of the server, will spare you no mercy. Unrelenting instanced temples will push you to your limits, giving you fame and fortune if you show the world that you are a true hero. Accumulate enough might and you can unlock ancient secrets, letting you use magic spells to control the world around you.

We think it’s important to foster a strong community, and our player ranks are thus tied to activity on the server. As you continue to build your legend and establish your presence, you will earn your way to glory and prestige.

Often times it’s the little things that make the biggest difference, and we have a plethora of precisely tuned pieces that keep the cogs turning. Little tweaks to the basics of Minecraft and bigger underlying systems designed to reward you for playing the game your way. We want players to have fun and enjoy themselves in a world that feels ready for conquest and adventure.

We’re a mature survival server, which means we won’t teleport you across the world – you’ve got to make the trek yourself. You might die, but you’ll get right back up again and keep fighting. That’s what the game is all about, after all! There are plenty of resources and friends to help you out on your adventures, but only you can keep yourself alive.

Some recent highlights:

We’ve been around since 2010, but we’re working on new stuff for you all the time.

Discord integration improvements

Our Discord bridge received some performance and feature updates this week. It will now notify admins about stuff around the server that need their attention. As usual, you can always @Wahrheit if you need help – this works both in-game and on Discord!

Mob loot rebalance

Our mob loot balancing system has undergone another upgrade! In addition to wild mobs now giving triple drops and EXP, you can now also get rewards for finding and breaking Mob Spawners. Upon breaking one, it will drop a diamond block and 1395 EXP – enough to get you straight from level 0 to level 30! Get hunting!

Ice boat racing

It’s as fun as it sounds. We’re working on constructing multiple courses, and they make for a great night of community building!

More rare mobs, construction of Landmarks

We’ve added yet more of our new rare mobs, and are slowly expanding the library of them and the loot they drop! Ideas are always welcomed, and rewarded!

This week features the introduction of the Lesser Drow! Rarely-encountered denizens of the Nether, they are nimble and skilled, but hold great treasures for adventurers who can overcome them.

Complementing these mobs is the introduction of our new Landmarks system. As the Heavens is a highly volatile and magical realm, it reforms itself from time to time. Each new iteration will include new rare structures that randomly spawn, featuring rare mobs, rare loot, or both!

Development of the main quest line

We now have more available quests than ever, and more are in development. User feedback and suggestions are welcomed! Our quests center around helping introduce users to the server, but are expanding to create challenges for more seasoned veterans, too.

More magic spells

This week we added more new spells and rebalanced a few old ones based on user feedback!

Temple challenger bounties

The Fire Temple and The Water Temple remain undefeated. The first player to complete each successfully – perhaps even the same player for both – will receive a key for a Steam game from my vault of many! There are also treasures earned for each completion each time in-game.

Hall of Accomplishments

Currently in development is a new area that will memorialize the first and/or best achievements of players on our server. With so many new features and challenges being introduced, we thought it only right to commemorate the efforts of our bravest heroes. Write your legacy and inspire others to follow in your footsteps! Examples for feats to be memorialized include the first player to complete the Tower of the Gods (Azilizan), the first players to complete each Temple, and more.

Colored repairs

Special items with colored names (read: rare mob loot) will now keep their names when repaired with anvils!

Fixed shooting range

The Shooting Range is now back open for business! Practice your aim and make a little gold, too.

Back-end updates

We optimized and improved a lot of our back-end systems this week. Hooray, performance improvements!

As always, seeking your feedback and ideas!

We actively solicit player feedback and ideas for development – after all, the server is for you, and we want to work on what will make you happy. Let us know what kind of content you’d like to see, and we’ll have a conversation about it! This is yet another great way to make use of the forums.
