How to play Towny 101
Creating a town:
After arriving in the Towny server, you can choose to go out from there with /rtp command to find an area to settle your town.

To start your town, or “settle”, you will issue a command of /t new (desired name). This will establish a 1 plot town that you will then build from. Please keep in mind that towns cost $250 to create. In order to expand your town, you will then issue the command of /t claim while standing on the plot that you would like to purchase. I recommend using the /t set perm off. This is to ensure that other players are not able to build/destroy on your town properties. Don’t forget, your town will have daily taxes taken out, so keep money in your town bank to cover them.

If you wish to move your town spawn area, you may set a different location by standing in the exact spot you want it and issuing the command /t set homeblock, then /t set spawn. In order to receive extra “available property” (room for your town to expand, you may want to add your town to a nation. In order to do so, a nation owner must invite you. You may ask if any nations are accepting new towns.

To add a player to your town, you issue /t add (player name). They can either accept or deny your invitation. After the player is in your town, they will probably want a plot. To set a plot for sale, simply issue the command /plot fs, if you desire to put a price on your plots for sale, issue the command of /plot fs ($). The player to become the owner of the plot will then issue the command of /plot claim. This makes them liable for the taxes of the plot(s) they own. To set your town taxes, issue the command of /t set taxes ($), this charges them for being a resident in your town, or /t set plot tax ($), this charges players per plot they are in possession of. You may also suggest to the player to ensure their plot is protected by issuing the command of /plot set perm off.


Joining a town:
After entering the Towny server, you can find a town that is open or get someone to invite you to their town.

When being added to a town you will receive a request from a town staff member. The message will read “You have been invited to join (town name), /accept? /deny?” To join the town, simply issue the /accept command. To deny the invite in order to join a different town or continue looking, simply issue the /deny command.

Once you are in a town, you will need a plot (or multiple plots if you so choose). After the mayor or another town staff places a plot up for sale, you will need to purchase it. To purchase a plot, you must be standing on a plot that is “fs $ (for sale price)” and issue the command /plot claim. This automatically pays for the plot and makes you the owner of that plot. If you are buying multiple plots, you will need to issue this command on each plot.

Your towny perms as a resident will be limited to your plot. I recommend the first command you issue when buying a plot to be /plot set perm off. This sets your plot so that nobody is able to alter your plot in any way. Please remember that Mayors, Co-mayors, and Town Assistants will be able to alter your property upon your permission. Based on that town’s rules, other circumstances may apply.

On this plot, based on your town rules, you may build, break, create, etc. There may be taxes to pay, so be sure to keep making money (meebles) in order to pay for these taxes or you may lose your property and belongings. Depending on courtesy of the town mayor, you may or may not receive these items back. Also, being an active player on MeepCraft may be a factor in keeping your plot so be sure to check your town rules for specific rules within your town. Enjoy playing!


Managing town:
As a mayor possesses all /t set and /plot set commands within the town. /t set name: If you wish to change the name of your town, you will use this command. /t set home block, then /t set spawn: This changes the spawn location (/t spawn) of your town. /t delete: This wipes your entire town. EVERYTHING! (Be very cautious!) /t withdraw ($): This removes said amount from town bank. /t deposit ($): This adds said amount from your player account to town bank. /t unclaim: Unclaims the plot that you are standing on to make it no longer town property. /t claim: Claims the plot you are standing on as town property. /plot set reset: Returns a plot back to normal perms and settings (does not remove structures). /plot clear: Removes signs from the plot you are standing on. /t kick (name): Kicks a player from your town. /n leave: To leave the nation you are currently in. You can also do /t ? for a little in game guide!


Residential Commands

Unless given a towny rank by the mayor, your commands are restricted to your plot.

/plot clear: Removes signs from the plot you are standing on. /plot claim: Makes you the owner of the plot. /plot unclaim: Gives the plot back to the town. You also possess plot perms located above to allow others to access your plot.


Claiming chunks:
When you initially start a town, the chunk you are standing on while starting the town will be your homeblock. You will then be able to claim adjacent blocks. To claim, use /t claim, you can also visualise your town on a map using /towny map

Regular plots: Set plots up for sale (/plot fs) Claim plot (/plot claim) Embassy plots: (A plot within a town that you are not a resident of) Set plot up for sale:(/plot fs) Set plot type (/plot set embassy) Claim plot (/plot claim) To reset a plot from Embassy back to a Regular plot, issue the command of /plot set reset.

Creating a nation:
To create a nation, you need to already own a town. To do so, the command is /n new (name). A nation costs $1000 to create along with the nation upkeep. Similarly to town, you will be able to invite others to your nation, except you will be inviting towns instead of players

Special info:
The server also features classes and custom items. We will keep it a secret on those and we will let you, the players, to find out more about it!
