2018 Fundraiser

From MC Public Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



Many games and servers offer things like paid loot boxes to give the player buying them an advantage over everyone else. Some allow special ranks, privileges, or even staff positions to be purchased as well. Though our servers and gamemodes may have changed over the years, the core idea of Nerd.nu has not: that all players should be treated fairly and equally. Anyone can join our servers for the first time, without giving us a cent, and have the same experience as someone who’s been around for years and donated hundreds of dollars.

The hardware our servers run on does cost money, so once a year we hold a fundraiser to help pay for the next year’s costs. Every penny donated goes directly to running the servers you play on. If you are able to contribute, and believe that we have earned it, we greatly appreciate any amount you give. If you are not able to contribute, don’t worry about it! Just have fun at the event.

General Info

We are again trying something different than the typical CTF event. We’ll be looking for your feedback after the event is over.

  • The fundraiser will run August 3rd to August 5th, 2018 on e.nerd.nu.
  • The server will be on 1.12.2.
  • As always, all other servers will be closed during the fundraiser.
  • The fundraiser will start around 8pm EDT on Friday and end 10pm Sunday evening.
  • The other servers will open back up around 11am Sunday morning.
  • We have a custom resource pack for the event. You can download it here if you’d like to have it ahead of time.

The Wild West

A once vibrant gold rush town has fallen on hard times. The oppressive climate and hostile wildlife has driven it’s inhabitants away. Hearing rumors the land is still flush with gold you set off to claim some of it for yourself. After all, it couldn’t be that hard to survive out there, could it?

In this Western themed fundraiser, you and your friends are trying to revitalize an abandoned gold rush town. A crazy old man owns the whole town, and in exchange for NerdCoins™ and other items he will restore and upgrade the buildings. Each upgrade will give different benefits to everyone when unlocked.

Map Info

  • The map is 2800x2800.
  • Nether and end portals and dimensions are disabled.
  • The area around spawn is protected, and hostile mobs will not spawn there.
  • Animal mobs will not spawn naturally.
  • Hostile mobs get tougher the farther you are from spawn.
  • There is a lot of gold in the ground. Other ores are generally vanilla.
  • Enchantment tables have been disabled. Enchanted gear can be bought from villagers.
  • There will be no protections granted for builds outside the spawn area, but you may request a chest region.


  • Rebuild the town! Each building unlocked and upgraded will provide different benefits to all players.
  • Conquer the dungeons! Hidden around the map are 15 dungeons, each containing various types of challenges. Can you find and claim the reward from each one?
  • Get your gold! Gold mined from the ground can be exchanged for NerdCoins™ to purchase various items from villagers.

Hostile Mobs

  • Mobs stats scale the further they are from spawn.
  • Mob health will be displayed above their head, so you can see what you’re getting into.
  • The color of the mob’s health will let you know what difficulty zone you’re in.
  • XP and drops will increase the further out you go.
  • Mobs drop NerdCoins™.
  • Mobs might have special attacks. Be careful!


  • Scattered throughout the map are the entrances to 15 dungeons.
  • Each dungeon has a unique challenge to overcome. There are mazes, scavenger hunts, riddles, parkour, and more.
  • To enter a dungeon you will have to have an empty inventory. There are ender chests by each entrance.
  • Complete the challenge inside each dungeon to win NerdCoins™!
  • Certain villagers will sell maps as hints to the location of each dungeon.


The hotel is in place with rooms ready to be claimed when the event starts. Run "/nerdplot claim" in a room to claim it. You may modreq to have your name added to the sign.

The first building that needs to be unlocked is the Bank. Opening the bank will allow you to exchange your hard-earned gold for NerdCoins™, which are used to unlock all the other buildings and upgrades. You can contribute to whichever building you’d like upgraded most. There will be donation chests in front of each building with signs listing the cost for the next upgrade. When the requirements for an upgrade have been met, make a modreq in front of the chest.

The buildings, costs for upgrades, and what is unlocked with each upgrade is listed in the gallery below but subject to balancing before progress has started on a given tier. The gallery will be updated if rebalancing takes place, and a notice will go out.

Check out the list of upgrade costs and unlocks.

See the map of town for the locations of buildings, or visit the concierge desk for a map in game.
