Where have I been?!

Hey everyone! You might remember me. Maybe.

As you may have realized, I've been gone for almost 3 months now... and there's actually a lot of valid reasoning behind it.

First and foremost, I have not abandoned you! I have been making sure the server is running solid and everyone can continue to play; there just hasn't been any content updates.

In April, the month of our launch, my brother unfortunately passed away which lead to some serious real life drama.

In May, my grandma who has lived with me for all 23 years of my life started to get progressively sicker and ended up in the hospital. She is now in a nursing home and much of my time was spent visiting her. We hope to have her back home soon.

In June, I started feeling progressively sicker every day. I was getting tired, throwing up, getting massive head pains and by the worst of it, 100% bed ridden as I had the most extreme vertigo of my life that I couldn't bear getting up from bed. It all hit rock bottom when I was using the bathroom and fell and hit my head and passed out. I have been in and out of hospitals and clinics searching for an answer to my issues. Ultimately, nobody really knows what's wrong with me but it's something inflaming my sinuses. It's likely summer allergies. I've been taking some medication to combat a few of my symptoms and I'm starting to feel better, enough to get out of bed now. Finally.

Other then that, I don't have much more to say. I really do want to come back and start doing great things again, but I'm just not there yet and need more time to get healthier and for my life to return to normal.

Thank you for sticking with Dethemium Smile

  The Dethemium Decorative Update!

This will be our first content update, known as "The Dethemium Decorative Update"!

This update adds over 1,300 new decorative blocks that you can use to decorate any build of any genre. This blocks are simply decorative and have no actual use, but make your builds look so much better and add the much needed "last details" to any build that is looking to cover those empty walls or tables.

You can access the large database of decorative items by using the command /decorate

All decorative items cost a mere $5, while the mob heads cost $50.

That's not all, however...

We also have a new structure known as "The Disenchanting Cauldron"! With this new structure, you can cleanse any lore or enchantments off your item and have it go back to its original stock state. All thanks to the power of Holy Water.

You can create a Disenchanting Cauldron by placing a cauldron on top of a working beacon, and filling it with water. This will make the cauldron have Holy Water that can now cleanse your items. Each cleanse takes a layer of the cauldrons water, so keep a water source nearby to refill it if you plan on doing items in mass. To actually cleanse the item, simply right click the water filled cauldron with the item you wish to disenchant.

Anyways, that's all for now. If you have any cool suggestions for future updates, feel free to leave us a suggestion by clicking here.

Hey everyone! My name is Dylan. You should probably call me by my username though, Pure.

Dethemium has been in operation since December 2011 and a lot has changed since initial launch. One thing that has not changed however, is quality and keeping everything stable and performant.

This launch of Dethemium has been the result of 3 months of 5+ hours a day work, trying to craft a unique version of Minecraft that anyone who enjoys a challenge with their friends would appreciate. Due to all of the time and effort put into this, it has given me a ton of time to smooth over a lot of features and make everything very stable and operating without error. This means that you can enjoy Minecraft 1.9 in its full glory, with all vanilla content working and all of our changes on top of it functioning as expected. Hopefully while also all enjoying perfect tick rate and no lag - but that's to be seen yet with large player counts! I am quite positive we should see no such issues.

This release of Dethemium is all about changing the game up. While for the past 5 years of operation we've simply improved upon the vanilla game, this time is all about changing up some vanilla mechanics and making things more interesting and more difficult. If difficulty is not your thing, unfortunately we're not the server for you any longer. Give it a shot though before you claim it sucks!

I won't go into every single detail about what's new, what's changed, what's removed, etc. as this as already been covered by our new comprehensive "Help Documents" located via the "Help" tab on the top of every page. My best advice is forget everything you've ever known about the old and have no expectations going in. For all intensive purposes, this is not the same server as you've played on previously. Make sure you read up and get informed before going in and you should have no troubles playing. Most things will come to you naturally as you play and learn all of the new nuisances.

Also if it wasn't obvious - we're now using a new forum software! Well actually, this was the forum software we used when we launched in 2011 but we've now returned back to our roots. The main reason for this is that I could not afford the license renewal and general costs of the old forums, and switching to this forum software not only meant totally free and open source but the ability for me to do some really cool things with custom CSS and theming to make this website look absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention that I've optimized the hell out of this site and everything should be mindblowingly fast and responsive. There's definitely still some little things I'll tweak here and there based on feedback, but for now - welcome to the new Dethemium website. If for whatever reason you cannot login with your existing forum account, try resetting your password. This will fix any invalid login data from the migration that could have occurred. However, this is unlikely to be a problem as multiple users have been able to login just fine. Also, unfortunately, we're very not mobile friendly now. While everything should work fine, it might not be as great as an experience as the old forums. This is something I will work on in the later months.

Finally, let's address the elephant in the room. Donation ranks. Mojang has started coming down hard on servers as of late for breaking the Commercial EULA and for claiming things as "Donations" when really they're straight up purchases. To combat this, I have decided to redo our entire payment system and instead call all of our ranks exactly what they are - Premium Ranks. We now offer three Premium Ranks - Premium (10$), Premium Plus ($50) and Premium Extreme ($100). Unfortunately, due to many circumstances in relation to Paypal and the general rank conversion, I have made the somewhat upsetting decision to purge all "donation" ranks across Dethemium. However, if you have donated after September 1st, 2015 your rank has been manually transitioned into the new Premium ranks and you should be good to go. All ranks are still "lifetime", so it's a one time purchase fee. Just keep in mind "lifetime" does not mean for your lifetime. It means for the lifetime of the current ranking system. I hope I will never have to do this again, but I cannot make any promises. Please read all terms before buying any ranks! or anything online for that matter! I sincerely apologize once again.

Anyways, that about wraps this up. Please don't hesitate to reply if you have ANY questions or concerns about this launch of Dethemium. If you find any bugs, or have feature quests - please post those in the appropriate category on our website.

Welcome home, everyone. Dethemium 2.0 will just be called Dethemium from here on out.
