QLD Minecraft Developers

QLD Minecraft has a developer program that allows interested players to move up to support the development of the server and game. If you are keen to support by designing areas and towns or coding new features or events using Denizen, contact James Collins at Inclusive Communities for more info ic@slq.qld.gov.au.

Requesting your Own Region/Town

Public Libraries within Queensland can request or book their own regions/towns to run activities. Contact James Collins at Inclusive Communities for more info ic@slq.qld.gov.au.


How do I connect to the server?
First, you need to register using the link above. Then once approved, you can connect to the server with the details on this page.

How do I report a player?
You can report players in-game using the “/report <message>” command. Alternatively, you can contact James Collins at Inclusive Communities ic@slq.qld.gov.au

I think I found a bug
Thanks so much! If you think you have found a bug, use the “/bug <message>” command in-game. Let us know as much as possible about what happened.

Is the world creative/survival/pvp?
It is all 3! By default, the world is set to survival and plays as an MMORG game with quests, xp, money and adventures with your friends!

Towns do not allow PVP and players are generally protected from monsters by guards. You also cannot destroy or build in a town outside your plot. Plots can be purchased at Plot Keepers depending on the town. Some towns are reserved and managed by other libraries or by players at a certain level.

You will also find a few creative areas such as Rode that is reserved for players who just want to be in creative mode.

I can't enter a certain area. Is this a bug?
No. Some areas are reserved at certain times for regional library events. Depending on the reservation, you may not be able to modify the blocks inside that region, or not able to enter that region at all.

Developers areas are reserved only for QLD Minecraft developers.


You can find some how-to constructions guides on the Minecraft wiki page.
