How to claim land


Land is divided into claims. One claim is exactly 16x16 blocks and perfectly lines up with Minecraft chunks.

Claiming a chunk costs 16 gold. To claim a chunk:

  1. Join or create a town.
  2. Have a town rank which is able to claim land, such as mayor (default rank for town creator). More on town ranks here.
  3. Deposit 16 or more gold to your town bank. All town expenses are paid through the town bank. /t deposit 16.
  4. Stand in a chunk you want to claim adjacent to a chunk the town already owns.
  5. Run command /t claim.

You successfully claim the chunk!

Claim limits

Your town can at first only claim 8 chunks. You can increase this number by 8 for every resident who joins. Your maximum amount of chunks can also increase through a nation bonus. This is an amount of max claimable chunks added to every town in a nation. It ranges from 10 extra chunks all the way to 140. It scales based on total residents in a nation. 10 chunks are from simply being in a nation. 140 is from having 50 residents in your whole nation.

You can see how many chunks a town can claim by running /t {townname}. This command will show general town information. Look for "Town Size", this shows a ratio between chunks a town already has claimed and the max amount of claims the town can claim to. For example, "Town size: 90/152" means that the given town has claimed 90 out of 152 chunks.

Sometimes you will notice that a town has more chunks claimed than it's able to claim, for example "Town size: 90/60". This can happen if residents leave after the town has been claimed. As mention above, towns can claim 8 chunks per town resident. Towns do no lose their claims even if they no longer have enough residents.
