Today saw an act of unbelievable, albeit sanctioned destruction in spawn. There were fireworks, spiderweb parties, and prizes for the most destructive players in a free-for-all bank demo. That’s right, the dismantling of the bank was the main event of the evening, an event that saw the entire range of human emotion on display. Chaoskills93′s cries of triumph and joy as he won the ‘Most Destructive’ award by clearing away 1,313 blocks of the old Bank building. ks07′s cries of anguish as he had to struggle against his miserly tendancies and hand over gold blocks to the first, second, and third place block removal winners.
The destruction was both impressive and frightening.
At the end of the day, the entire event served three purposes. 1) It allowed many of our more grief-prone members to scratch the itch without us having to ban them for forever. 2. It was a fun community project/contest with prizes and luls. 3. It paved the way for the new bank:

First off, a huge birthday wish from everyone here at Ultimate Minecraft to our old friend and founder andypandy89! We hope you’re not working too hard and can’t wait to see you around again
, so we can work you like a slave.
Secondly, the third IRC server forum will be held tonight/tomorrow, in two parts so that people who can’t attend one may be able to make the other. This is a chance for anyone who plays with us on Ultimate Minecraft to come and tell us what they think and talk about what they’d like to see happen in the future. The full information posted on the forums is available below, but for those who want to know when to come in advance:
All times are London UK times, which is GMT +1:
- Tonight/Tomorrow, Sunday 23rd September @ 12am Midnight
- Tomorrow, Sunday 23rd September @ 3pm
For all of those wanting one of the large mall plots or even spawn shop plots, the wait is finally over! Head on over to the specially created section of the forums to find out more and place your bids. Remember that whatever you bid will be the monthly price, so make sure you don’t go outrageously high and blow all your savings in a single month!
UPDATE: In order to make the outdoor shop plots more appealing, players who own the shops will be able to clear the space directly beneath the shop floor to create a basement level and hold more items for sale!
I have been asked by Sukuido and Sagethor to put out an announcement to all that tommorow evening is the next installment of Major League Spleef on the server! The competition is set to begin at 8pm GMT on the 28th, and more information can be found on the forum topic here.
Prizes will be awarded to the winning competitors, so make sure you don’t miss out!

Accidentally Pre-released early!
Basically, the UMC Olympics have been cancelled/postponed as the server has not been updated in time D:
Sorry for any inconvenience!
Ultimateminecraft recently held an 11 player pig race, hosted in Galvanic Ind by myself (frej93). Thanks to all those that participated, as well as to B3ll and MrAbrman for creating a redstone mechanism that lowers the gates using pistons (not shown in this current video, but will be of immense use later)
benthebrilliant took videos of this event, shown below
Hopefully more pig races will be held in the future, including prizes, more organised competition rules, and a mini-arena around the track so spectators can watch.
Let me know in the comments what you thought of this race, if you want more in the future and any improvements/ideas/suggestions you may have
Welcome to Ultimate Minecraft’s new website. With this change we hope to make the website more up to date with things that happen in game, which people often miss if they are not regulars in IRC or on the forums. Over time, we hope to fill the new website with as much information as possible to help you get the most out of our server.
As you can see the site is now fully integrated with the forums, this means that you’ll not have to create a new account if you have already signed up with the forums.
