MineTrade stands out as an innovative Minecraft Server working seamlessly to both Java and Bedrock editions, offering two distinct gamemodes: Survival and BorderSMP. What sets MineTrade apart is its unwavering commitment to uniqueness, evident in custom-coded plugins that not only enhance gameplay but also create an unique experience. We proudly embrace TikTok Advertisements as a pioneering strategy, ensuring widespread visibility and attracting a diverse player base.
These are the technologies used in this project.
Survival, a casually engaging yet unique project, stands out by offering players a unique experience. Departing from casual server setups, this gamemode is designed to emphasize genuine gameplay progression in line with the core Minecraft experience. Players start their journey by creating a team and teleporting to the overworld. Once a suitable location is found, they can claim chunks, with the team's maximum Chunk Claims, Member Size, and Trusted Member Size being upgradable using Team Points. Earning these points requires active gameplay, such as a 0.01% chance of obtaining 1 Team Point while mining diamonds, or a 0.00125% chance through animal breeding—a deliberate strategy to tie progress directly to in-game actions.
Survival's economic system is distinctive, featuring a shop plugin that allows players to purchase items but restricts selling. The primary income sources involve teleporting into the Resource World to mine ores, engaging in competitive PvP for the respawn of ores and spawners, trading with other players, or selecting a job. Despite the intricacies of the gamemode, development proved remarkably efficient, with the team completing the project in less than two weeks and releasing it after thorough testing.
BorderSMP, the groundbreaking gamemode, represents a combination of Skyblock and Survival with a unique twist, taking over four months to develop. Upon creating a team, players find themselves within a 16x16 area enclosed by a border. The ultimate goal is to ascend to the status of the richest player by engaging in activities such as farming, completing quests, pvping, and actively participating in the server events. Simultaneously, players must enhance their island by upgrading team upgrades like Border Size, Team Size, and gaining Nether access.
The long development period stemmed from the innovative feature wherein each team is granted its dedicated Overworld and Nether, presenting big challenges such as optimized world creation and loading, storage efficiency, and performance optimization. The team's persistent efforts, coupled with insightful problem-solving, eventually resulted in a nearly flawless execution of this intricate game dynamics.
MineTrade represents a significant milestone for us, marking our initial venture into effective project advertising on TikTok. It was a valuable hands-on learning experience for our team, providing insights into capturing audience attention within the constraints of short-form video content. Through MineTrade, we refined our skills in creating engaging and concise promotional material, recognizing TikTok's potential as a platform to connect with a diverse gaming community.
The success and lessons learned from MineTrade have motivated us to broaden our horizons. This has paved the way for the upcoming launch of our advertisement services. This expansion reflects our dedication to not only innovating gaming experiences but also supporting others in showcasing their projects to a broader audience through strategic and impactful advertising.
