Pets are currently disabled due to the plugin causing a few server crashes - we are continuing to test these in a test environment before adding them back to the main server. 

Hello everyone,
I'm aware that this feature has been requested for quite a while now, and after a long period of lack of work on it, we have finally found a decent pet system that is compatible (for the most part) with our server setup (last time we tried the good pet system was unable to load successfully, however after a few updates it now does).

We are aware that pets have been requested as a donator feature for quite some time, and whilst we haven't yet decided as to which ranks will get what pets, we are now running what is our first open trial of a potential donator rank feature. For the next week, pets are available to all players (including non-donators) on our Creative server to try out, whilst we monitor any issues that they are causing, before we decide whether, or how we will, give these to each donator rank.

In order to use the pets, simply run the command /pets, and you will be presented with a GUI of all options. A majority of these are enabled, but please note the following exceptions:

Pets permenantly disabled due to crashing user's client in certain versions:

  • Zombie horse - crashes 1.8.x users
  • Skeleton horse - crashes 1.8.x users
  • Armor stand - crashes 1.x.x users (all supported versions)
  • Shulker - crashes 1.x.x users (all supported versions)

Please note that the following pets may not display correctly, due to not having existed in earlier versions of Minecraft still supported by the server:

  • Polar bear - 1.8.x-1.9.x
  • Stray - 1.8.x-1.9.x
  • Vex - 1.8.x-1.10.x
  • Llama - 1.8.x-1.10.x
  • Evoker¬†- 1.8.x-1.10.x
  • Vindicator¬†- 1.8.x-1.10.x
  • Husk¬†- 1.8.x-1.9.x
  • Parrot - 1.8.x-? (different results on test server & Creative - test server displayed as ocelot in all versions, Creative working in 1.12)
  • Illusioner - 1.8.x-?
  • Zombie Villager - 1.8.x

You are also able to ride your pets, and wear them as a hat - this can be sorted by right clicking your pet, or the /pets GUI. In addition, you are able to change the nametag of the pet by right clicking on it, as well as changing other features (such as size and colour).

We hope that you enjoy the trial of pets for the next week or so. After the trial, if the decision to add pets goes ahead, they will be most likely added to donator ranks from Gold and up (although decisions are still to be made on this).
