Easter Festival

Easter Festival

The Easter Egg Hunt

Hello and happy Easter! We have a humble little event for you all taking place between the 11th and 18th of April. Access the /easter shop and buy lots of custom heads and brand new Easter particle effects! There are currently 32 eggs around /spawn which players can interact with. Right clicking on an egg will give players a little reward, some eggs can only be used once, so try to find them quickly! Other eggs can be used repeatedly. More eggs will be added on a daily basis throughout the event. Happy hunting!

New Cosmetics Menu

Once you have unlocked the special Easter seasonal particles from the /easter shop, you can access the particles through the new /cosmetics menu. This menu is a new feature and some elements are still being developed. Keep an eye out for more features coming soon!

International Whisky Day

International Whisky Day

A New Brewing Recipe

It's International Whisky Day! Brush off the diamond hoes and get harvesting wheat and wheat seeds so you can start brewing your own whisky! Players recently voted overwhelmingly to keep the brewing plugin after the success it had during the Saint Patrick's festival. As such, we will be adding more and more recipes for you to explore over the coming weeks and months! This whisky will be a permanent feature in our recipe collection. Players still have access to /warp brewery, however we advise you to start building your own breweries as this area will be off limits within the next week or two. 

Recipe for Whisky

Whisky is a quality product so timing must be accurate or you risk ruining the batch! First you must ferment 8 wheat seeds and 2 pieces of wheat for 4 minutes. The resulting grain mash must then be aged in an oak barrel for 8 Minecraft days. Variations include smooth whisky, whisky, and bootleg whisky. Each bottle is approximately 40% alcohol volume!

Saint Patricks Festival

Saint Patricks Festival

Festival Features

The Saint Patrick's Festival is here! For the next ten days players will be able to brew their own beers and other alcoholic drinks, get drunk and party! 

  • Brew your own alcoholic drinks and get drunk!
  • Cheap beer mugs and Irish themed heads!
  • Four new particle effects to collect!
  • Visit our brewery at /warp brewery!
  • Type /menu to access all the fun!

The Origin of Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland. On St Patrick's Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and green clothing or accessories.

The colour green has been associated with Ireland since at least the 1640s, when the green harp flag was used by the Irish Catholic Confederation. Green ribbons and shamrocks have been worn on St Patrick's Day since at least the 1680s.

Step One

Step one is fermenting fresh ingredients. Place a cauldron over a fire and fill it with water. Add the required ingredients by right clicking the cauldron with the ingredients in your hand. You can right click the cauldron with a clock to see how long they have been fermenting for. Once they have fermented for the duration specified in your recipe, empty the brew into glass bottles. 

Step Two

Not all recipes may require step two. This is the distilling process, more commonly used for spirits rather than beers. Put your bottles on to a brewing stand with glowstone dust as the filter on top of the bottles. Repeat the distilling process as many times as your recipe requires it. 

Step Three

Not all recipes require step three. Ageing is more for beers and ciders rather than for spirits. Right click the Barrel sign on any small or large barrel and place your brews in the inventory slots to age. You can track how long they have been ageing by checking the brew's lore. Some recipes may require a specific type of barrel, for example oak or spruce. 

Go to /warp brewery to see and use examples!

Recipe for Beer

A simple beer requires 6 wheat to be fermented for 8 minutes. The brew must then be aged in any barrel for 3 mc days.

Recipe for Dark Beer

Dark Beer requires 6 wheat to be fermented for 8 minutes. The brew must then be aged for 8 mc days in a spruce barrel.

Recipe for Mead

Mead requires 6 sugar canes to be fermented for 3 minutes. The brew must then be aged for 4 mc days in an oak barrel.

Recipe for Cider

Cider requires 6 sugar canes and 2 apples to be fermented for 4 minutes. The brew must then be aged for 4 mc days in an oak barrel.

Recipe for Spicy Rum

Arrr, spicy rum requires 14 sugar canes to be fermented for 5 minutes. The brew will then be distilled 2 times, and then aged for 14 mc days in an oak barrel.

Recipe for Vodka

Vodka requires 10 potatoes to be fermented for 15 minutes. The brew will then need to be distilled 3 times. 

Recipe for Absinthe

Absinthe requires 15 dead bushes to be fermented for 3 minutes. The brew will then need to be distilled 6 times. Expect this one to hurt!

The Quick Build Update

The Quick Build Update

Solo and Team Based Building Games

Hello everybody! Following on from our successful relaunch, we are starting to focus more on adding extra games for you to play. We don't want to become a mini-games server and that will never be our goal, however we do realise that sometimes players need to take a break from survival. Over the coming weeks and months we will be adding more exciting new games for you to play. We really hope you will enjoy what we are going to be building for you!

Enough about that for the moment thought, and lets talk about our new quick build game! The object of the game is to build something according to the selected theme. Players have five minutes to build with access to creative mode. Once the five minutes have passed, the game ends and players are teleported to each build and are given an opportunity to vote on how good it is. Please be honest and fair, these games are no fun when people vote unfairly. If collusion or conspiracy to cheat others out of fair scores is detected, action will be taken.

You can play this new game by accessing the games menu either by typing [/menu] or [/games], you can also type [/warp quickbuild]. The current arena allows for a maximum of 8 players to play at the same time. Once you have joined a game you will have a short period where you can vote on a particularly theme you wish to build, if no one picks a topic one will be chosen at random. Once you are in the arena, you will see an emerald in your hand, right clicking this gives you access to options such as changing your arena floor and adding particle effects.

There is a limited amount of build themes at the moment, please let us know your ideas for more themes either on our Twitter account or our Discord server! You can always talk to members of staff on Humble Pie as well as leave us suggestions at [/warp suggestions]. A team based mode will be released shortly. Thank you to our moderator mental142 for building the arenas!

Road Map to 1.11.2

Road Map to 1.11.2

Updating Humble Pie

Humble Pie has been online for nine months now, and what a great nine months it has been! There were some high points and some low points, and we have learned a great deal along the way. We are humbled (ha, get it? humbled?) by the response to our server and all of our fantastic players and donors!

Humble Pie is going to be going through a very big transformation during the first weeks of January 2017. Please note that the following timeline is what we are planning for upgrading to 1.11.2, but of course, sometimes plans go awry for any number of reasons, so please be patient if things take a little longer than we anticipate. Thank you!

Update Schedule

On Tuesday the 10th of January 2017 the server will be whitelisted to staff only. Our initial plan is to effectively take the server offline for four days while we do major plugin configurations and update the server to 1.11.2. The reason for taking the server offline for this amount of time is to ensure that we can be as thorough as possible in verifying that plugins are working as they should be, and to ensure a great experience for players when they come back.

As many of you may know, we will also be adding a new map to the server during this time. We are using an epic world generator to give you a Minecraft experience unlike any you have had before! The staff thought long and hard about how best to do this, but we have decided that now is a good time for a fresh start. The old world will be gone, inventories will be emptied, money, mcmmo and job stats will all be wiped. It will be as though you are a brand new player, supporters will keep their rank of course.

We have talked to many players and we are excited by the positive feedback, but we understand that some players may not be happy with this.

We are currently exploring some options for the economy and we may be making changes to the way that certain elements of the server works, including spawners, the head shop, and how you buy and sell items. We are also exploring the possibilities of creative based build competitions and vote based ranks. We will keep you informed about our progress on our Discord server and our Twitter account!
