Creative: An Introductory Guide

Hello and welcome to the Introductory guide for the Manacube Creative server!

Here we will explain the basics of creative, but don’t worry, there will be more advanced guides coming very soon (We’re currently working on them as you read this!) so look out for those very soon! Anyway, let's get right into the guide!​


What is Creative?

Creative is one of our gamemodes on Manacube that lets you explore your inner creativity to its fullest potential. With an array of commands to use such as Advanced Worldedit, Voxelsniper, and GoBrush! On Creative, you can build to your heart's content on our standard 111x111 plots - or you can even merge multiple plots to allow more space for your imagination to flow!


Getting Started

So, first things first, you’ll want to get a plot, simply type /plot auto to get your very first plot! Normal members start out with 2 plots! Vip start out with 6! Vip+ start out with 10! Mvp start out with 16, and finally, Mvp+ start out with 25! (Mvp+ get an additional 4 mega plots at /warp mega!)


Now if you want a bigger plot you can merge them together! Simply get the amount plots you want to merge together, face in the direction of the said plot while standing on another one of your plots, and do /plot merge! It's really that simple, it doesn’t cost any mana!


Once on the plot, there are a few things you can do! If you would like to build on your own then just get right to it but if you would like to build with some friends, here are some easy commands you can do!


To add them /Plot Add (Name), Plot add lets the player build on the plot but NOT worldedit! Also when the owner of the plot is offline, they AREN’T allowed to build!


/Plot Trust (Name), Plot trust lets the player build on your plot even when you're offline, as well as worldedit!


/Plot Chat, This command lets you chat with your friends in plot chat without disturbing the global chat, to disable it simply type /Plot Chat again to toggle it off! This command only works if you’re standing on a plot, if you're standing on the road it will automatically send your messages into the global chat!


Mana, Mana, Mana!


There are a few ways to get mana, the 2 most common ways are by Voting and Scramblers.


Scramblers are an easy way of getting mana, So, First things first, A message will pop up in chat like so:


The next thing you will need to do is try to unscramble the pink letters in chat the fastest, in this case, the word is Summer! Once you win a scrambler there will be a 50% chance you get the mana! You will win 1 mana if you’re lucky enough to land in the good 50%!


The other way is Voting! You can vote up to 6 times a day! You will get 4 mana per vote and 8 on a x2 Voting week! So per day, you can get up to 24 mana a day or 48 on a x2 week day! That's a whole bunch of mana just by putting your username at these links below:


https://minecraftservers.org/vote/503790

https://minecraft-server-list.com/server/279300/vote/

https://minecraft-mp.com/server/23169/vote/

https://www.planetminecraft.com/server/vice-row---traditional-factions-casinos-wars-loot/vote/

https://minecraft-server.net/vote/Dacon/

https://topg.org/Minecraft/in-390672


Simply follow the instructions on the website and you're good to go! Make sure you spell your name correctly or your mana will not be given to you! So make sure you use all the right characters to get that mana! PLUS if you get top voter of the month you can get 20 Cubits! So, in other words, $20 store credit! How awesome is that!


Now there is another way of getting mana and that's by winning build competitions! The amount of mana varies but its a very good amount! Just be on the lookout for the announcement on our discord for an upcoming build competition!

FAQ


Will there be more guides?


Yes! There will be plenty more guides on the more advanced stuff like Worldedit/Voxel and Grading!


How do I get a grade?


Once you’ve built your plot! Do /submit and the creative team will give you a grade! But remember don't copy otherwise you will get a warning point and eventually grade banned (will go more into detail on this on the grading guide coming soon!)


How do I set up a Like sign on my Plot?


It’s pretty simple! Just place a sign down with the message as follows :

How do I get to other people's plots?


It's just a simple command! All you need to do is type /plot home (players name) (players plot number)​

Thank you for creating this really in-depth guide!

I’ve spoken with you a fair bit recently, and know that this is something you’ve been very passionate about for some time now, and wanted to make sure you did a good job with. All I can say is, it really shows! <3

I have no doubts that this guide will be extremely helpful to new players, as well as existing ManaCube players who are thinking of adventuring to creative, but are unsure how to start, what to do etc (myself included!) - Now all I can suggest is you give an in-depth guide on how to actually build ... but, you can just PM that to me directly ;).

Hi Nick,

This creative guide you have created I am confident will help many of our new players understand the server a bit more and how to "get started" just as it's stated. It is very informative and helpful. Nice job, Thank you! :D
