GETTING STARTED

Rules

Click here to view our rules. Violating our rules may result in a ban. Appeal a ban on our forms page.

Ranks

You obtain ranks on Acorn by voting. For a list of all ranks and their capabilities, please visit the ranks page. You can check your progress to a certain rank by typing /votetotal. You obtain a new rank at 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, and 2000 votes.

/vote will provide you with 4 links. Click on them, provide your username, and submit your vote. Voting will give you 1 crate key, 1 vote point, and it will increase your vote total by 1. For more information on voting, click here to visit the voting page.

Crate Keys

Crate keys can be redeemed at /warp crates for money, claim blocks, and rare items. Use /keys to check your keys.

Vote Points

You can spend vote points in the /voteshop to buy special perks like /fly and infinite homes.

Homes

Ranking up will increase the amount of /homes you can create. Create a home with /sethome [home name]. List your homes with /homes. Delete a home with /delhome [home name]. Visit any of your homes with /home [home name].

Zombies can only set one home, and can omit the [home name] variable in the above commands.

Staff

You can apply for staff on our forms page. You must be at least stray rank to apply for staff.

Worldedit

We do not have a builder rank. However, you can apply for worldedit permissions on our forms page.

Preventing Grief

You can use a golden shovel to make claims. You'll obtain a free golden shovel by voting for the fourth time. Other players don't have permission to build, open containers, or even push buttons and open doors in your claims. In order to give your friends permission to build, use /trust while standing in your claim. In order to give your friends permission to open containers such as chests and furnaces, use /containertrust. In order to give your friends permission to use buttons, levers, and doors, use /accesstrust. If you would like to give everyone permission in your claim, you can use public as the playername. You can obtain claim blocks using /buyclaimblocks or by using crate keys at /warp crates.

You can also make single-block locks with /lock. These blocks can be unlocked with /unlock. You can add players to the lock with /cmodify. If you want to create a donation chest where players can add items in but can't take items out, use /cdonation on an unlocked chest. If you want to create a container where players can view the contents but can't add or remove items from it, you can use /cdisplay on an unlocked chest.

If you choose to use both of these protection methods: please note that to add someone to a container, they must be added to both the claim and the lock. For a donation chest, players must be given at least containertrust permissions in the claim as well.

Support

If you need attention from a staff member, you can either create a /ticket or post a message in our Discord. When both options are available, please only complete one of them. Tickets are generally resolved faster than Discord messages, and we would recommend creating only a ticket when possible.

Tickets

You can create a ticket with /ticket [issue]. For instance, you would type /ticket My beacon was griefed. Some iron blocks are missing if your beacon was griefed and you had forgotten to claim it. Please be aware that tickets may take up to 24 hours to resolve but can be resolved in just a few minutes depending on the time that they're created. Please create the ticket at the location of the issue.

Discord

Alternatively, you can receive support by requesting support in our #support channel. Please describe the issue in detail and provide the coordinates if applicable. You can join our Discord here.

Emergencies

If there is an emergency, such as a raid of spammers, please type @staff in-game and describe the issue. For example, you could type "@staff the server is being raided by spammers." Typing @staff will send a mobile or desktop notification to all staff members, so please refrain from using it when not absolutely necessary.

Community

Discord

Our server is heavily centered around our community. Please join our Discord to talk while offline, share memes, and play games.

Suggestions

You can make suggestions and view them through our GitHub. Please view our suggestions page for more information. Feel free to provide feedback on other suggestions!

Publicity

Got a technical question? Feel free to ask! We don't believe in concealing any aspects of the server. All major config files are available on our GitHub, and other files can be made public upon request. All plugins are visible in /pl, and you can check the TPS through /tps. We also own our own hosting company which utilizes a custom-built server with NVMe storage in RAID-1, backups, and a Ryzen 3900XT in NYC, ensuring that we can't cheap out on Acorn's performance.

Economy

Acorn has several methods of making money.

Voting

Voting gives crate keys. You can redeem your crate keys at /warp crates for money.

Server Shop

You can sell select items to the server shop at /warp shop. The server shop has a 23 hour cooldown to encourage players to make their own chestshops as part of our goal for a 100% player-run economy.

Player Shops

Players make shops with chest shops. Some shops allow you to sell to them. You can also make your own chest shop. Click here for a tutorial on creating your own chest shop.

Jobs

After talking with another player and agreeing on a task and payment, complete the job and recieve the payment. Players can pay others with the /pay command.

Talking

You gain $5 per message. Please keep in mind that money from talking has a cooldown, so spamming won't earn you money! You'll earn money for both in-game messages and messages in Discord. You'll need to link your Minecraft account before you can earn money from Discord messages.

Auction House

You can sell items on the auctionhouse with /ah. You'll gain more slots as you rank up. Click here for more information on our ranks.
