Economy Guide

LilacMC features an economy plugin that allows players to earn and spend virtual currency on the server. This can be used to trade goods for cash, purchase in-game ranks, rent shops, create towns, and so forth. Many new players may find this style of economy confusing or stuck finding ways to make money on the server. This guide will answer common questions players may have about LilacMC’s economy, as well as demonstrate features that are tied to it.

LilacMC offers a completely player-driven economy, meaning every transaction is kept between players and there is no real fixed value for each item or service. This allows players to control how valuable some items are compared to others and uses an intuitive and realistic system of supply and demand. There is no server shop or shop GUI, but there are many ways to put your goods on the market!

Where do I start?

New players receive a bit of money to help them get settled and buy a few things around the server. You may have noticed your total balance shows up on the scoreboard on the right. You can view this value at any time using the /bal command, as well as view the entire server’s balance using /baltop.

The five most common ways to make money on the server are by joining a job, running player shops, using the auction house, vote for rewards, and participating in events. Almost anything you do on LilacMC can make you money.

What is a job?

Joining a job is by far the easiest way to make money on LilacMC! You can assign yourself to a profession and as you play on the server, actions relating to your job will make you money! For example, joining the Hunter job pays you for every hostile mob you kill, and the Mining job pays you to… well… mine. Common starting jobs include Farmer, Hunter, and Miner as these jobs are part of a lot of early-game activities. Of course, you aren’t limited to joining other jobs, but you will be restricted to one job slot only until you progress to Commoner, which unlocks another job slot.

To join a job, begin by running /jobs for the full list of jobs. You can left-click each item in the GUI to learn more about the job, and right-click to join it. You may also manually use job commands with /jobs help. Once you begin your job, you can start working for money, as well as better your profession. The longer you work in a job, the more you will be paid to work. You will know when your job is paying you when a tooltip appears, providing your pay and exp gain. A couple of bars will also show up on the top, which visualizes your job’s progression and your mcMMO skill experience. mcMMO is not tied to the economy, but many jobs will give experience to skills.

The Farmer job, which pays you for breaking and planting crops.‌‌

Ranks? “Commoner”?

LilacMC’s ranks reward players with perks for playing on the server longer, and this is achieved with the economy. Essentially, you can use the money you earn to purchase ranks in-game to get things like more homes, start towns, and unlock more job slots. You also get cosmetics such as the /nick command, which changes your display name on the server, as well as the tag for your rank in chat, with the /tags command. Higher ranks also offer utility commands like /ec, /craft, /back, /pv, and many others. You can view LilacMC’s rank progression using the /ranks command. The green blocks are what ranks you have previously earned, the yellow block is the next rank, and the red blocks are locked until you get the rank in the yellow block.

How can I sell my stuff?

By far, the best way to sell your things is to visit player shops. Lots of markets can be found on LilacMC’s marketplace, which can be accessed with /market. Here, players can rent spaces to set up shops, and other players can visit these shops and buy and sell their items. If you are looking to make your own shop, it will be covered in a separate guide. However, you might be more interested in just selling your job-related things. Take a look around the marketplace and look for a chest with a sign that has the item you are looking to sell. Here, you can simply left-click on the sign and a message will pop up asking how many you want to sell, as well as other information about the shop. Then, enter in chat the number of items you are selling, or “all” to sell everything.

What is the Auction House?

The Auction House is an alternative option for selling items and offers a more immediate system of buying and selling. There is no cost to use it, and every player has access to list and purchase items. You can view the Auction House by running /ah, which will bring up a GUI showing existing listings. To buy an item, simply left-click on the item and confirm your purchase. To sell an item, first, you must hold the item in your hand that you wish to sell and type /ah sell, followed by the price of the item and how many items to sell. Every listing expires after a few days, and you can recover unsold items with /ah and heading to the Expired Items tab.

Are there fast ways to make money?

Of course! LilacMC encourages players to vote for the server as it ups our ranking in server lists and helps the server grow. You can support the server by voting using the /vote command and going to the voting links, or by visiting the voting page at https://lilacmc.net/vote/. All you need is your username, and some sites require a Captcha verification. Once you vote, you will be granted a Vote Key to use at /warp crates, and you can redeem your keys for rewards. With a key in hand, right-click on the Vote Crate and you will immediately get your reward. Some rewards will be simple money prizes, and others might be valuables that can be sold.

Various rewards from the vote crate, including items like gold and diamonds!

What are server events?

We are still working on events to promote interaction with the server. Every so often, staff may host one of these events for a fun and engaging way to reward the player base. One event that LilacMC features are Fishing Contests, which use the EvenMoreFish plugin. At the top of every hour, this contest will start, and every player will have the opportunity to claim bragging rights for having the longest fish. You can fish anywhere on the server, even at spawn! Everyone has ten minutes to catch as many fish as they can, and the top 5 players with the longest fish earn prizes.

Once the contest ends, you are also able to sell the fish you caught by running the /sf command, which will bring up a GUI to sell your fish from the competition. Simply put the fish in the slots, and click the gold ingot to confirm and sell the fish. Longer fish typically sell for more money. The fish you caught is exclusive only to the fishing contest, so players can still catch the normal raw cod and salmon.

Artifacts Guide

1.0 What are artifacts?

Artifacts are tiered items. That's it. From Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Divine tiers, as long as the item has a tier, they're called Artifacts.

2.0 Where do you get Artifacts?

You can get Artifacts from mobs (drops), from crates, and from the vote party! And to be more specific:

  1. Common, Rare, Epic tiered Artifacts are the only tiers that can drop from mobs.
  2. You can get the legendary tiered artifacts from the Legendary Orb which you can only get from crates and vote parties.
  3. The highest tier, Divine, needs to be crafted. How? Continue reading..

3.0 What can you do with artifacts?

Legendary and Divine tiered items is meant to replace your vanilla 'God Tools/Armors'. With these two tiers, enchantments can go something like 'Efficiency IX', 'Protection VII'.

The same goes for the lower three tiers, except it's gonna be way harder to get the more awesome enchantments. Which means that most of the common, rare, and epic artifacts will 'suck' most of the time. *So what do I do with them?*, well, we have what we call the Dismantler.

The Dismantler can 'dismantle' artifacts. And for each dismantle, it will either give you EXP bottles or an artifact shard.

4.0 How do I dismantle an artifact in The Dismantler?

First, you need to go to The Dismantler by typing /dismantler. This command sends you to spawn where the dismantler can be found. Second, you need to hold the artifact that you want to dismantle and left click The Dismantler two times.

After this, you will either get an exp bottle or an artifact shard. The higher the tier of an artifact, the more chance that it becomes an artifact shard.

5.0 What can you do with Artifact Shards?

There's another use for artifact shards: Upgrading Divine items. Divine items are mostly just Diamond and without mending. To upgrade them, you will need to create an Upgrade Core that you will combine with the Divine item to make it into a Divine+ item. To craft an Upgrade Core, you will need to place 8 Artifact Shards in the shape of a circle in a crafting table as shown below:

You will then combine the Upgrade Core and Divine item in the Upgrade Interface. To open the interface, use the command: [/dupgrade]. You will then place the Divine item in the left slot and the Upgrade Core in the right slot, finally click the smithing table icon to combine them.

To summarize:

■ Eight shards and a Divine Core make a Divine Orb.
■ Eights shards make an Upgrade Core.
■ Use [/dupgrade] to combine a Divine item and Upgrade Core.

6.0 Summary

■ Artifacts are tiered items (Common/Rare/Epic/Legendary/Divine)
■ You can dismantle Artifacts via The Dismantler to get artifact shards.
■ To craft a Divine Orb, you need 8 artifact shards and 1 Divine Core.
■ To upgrade a Divine artifact, you need another 8 artifact shards.

RTP Guide

Your simple guide to Lilac RTP:

RTP stands for Random teleport, when using the command (/rtp) you will have access to a menu which allows you to teleport to one of the following worlds: Main world, resource world, nether world and nether resource world. Keep in mind that you will need the ‘Lord’ rank to use the nether rtp. When using the /rtp command you get randomly teleported into the world of your choice, this means that maybe you will spawn in a desert or maybe a mesa biome, you can also see your location using the live map at map.lilacmc.net

Resource World

The resource world is the best place to gather materials, you will find almost everything you need here! The resource world is filled with all different types of biomes, and you can find villages, dungeons, ravines and more here. Mobs CANNOT spawn in the resource world, so you won’t have to worry about being killed by a pesky creeper while gathering resources. You CAN set a home here but keep in mind, this world resets every month, so your nice beautiful home will not last forever, if you would like to make a more permanent home you should do so in the main world.

Main World

The main world is the perfect place to set up a home that will not disappear every month, you can also set up your very own town here! Inside your town mobs will despawn, but anywhere outside your town mobs will roam free as they usually do, and beware, you will drop all of your items when you die (ranking up will allow you to use the /back command on death, meaning you can go straight back to your point of death and collect all of the items you dropped on death). The main world also includes villages, dungeons, ravines and more.

(The above applies to Nether resource world & Nether main world too!)

ArtMap Guide

1.0 What is ArtMap?

ArtMap is a plugin which lets players do pixel-art in game! ArtMap offers a 32 X 32 canvas for everybody to paint on!

2.0 How do I use ArtMap?

To use ArtMap, you will first need to craft two main parts: Easel & Canvas. As shown in the photo above, to craft both materials, you will need materials such as sticks, leathers, emeralds, empty maps, and more!

When you have finally crafted both parts, you need to first place the Easel and right-click it with a Canvas for it to look like this! You can then right-click the Easel with Canvas and you will be seated as shown here:

After this, you can get to painting! You just need to use dyes and other materials in order to paint on the canvas!

3.0 Which items can I use to paint?

Below this is the list of items you can use as a 'brush' to your painting!

You can also access these GUI by typing /artmap in-game!

Also, for reference, this is what each material would look like in-game!

There are another two special tools: Feather & Coal. Feather lightens up the color of a dye as shown in the image below. Coal on the other hand, does the opposite!

4.0 How do I save and sell my painting?

Easy! Just hop on the easel where your painting is situated and type /artmap save [title]! After this, you will receive an original copy of your painting. These paintings have a 'copyright' added to them and this means that only you can produce copies of your painting, so that you can sell them!  

To copy a painting, just put it on a workbench along an empty map and it should give you two copies of it!

Happy painting, friends!

Fishing Contest Guide

Fishing Contest Guide

Written by: TooFaced / Tessa

LilacMC features hourly fishing contests, as well as a special fish stew contest. They take place once per full hour, or when a player activates a fish stew. The hourly fishing contests lasts for 10 minutes.

How do I begin?

You can use a fishing rod in any body of water, as soon as the contest starts, to partake with lure enchant rods being favored, as they give more fish. There’s a Largest Fish Contest, and a Most Fish Contest. Rewards include Jasmine keys and money pay out.

In order to see who is in the leaderboard, you can use the /fs command. And you can sell your fish using the /sf command.

Fish information

There are common, uncommon, rare, epic, legendary and mythic tiers of fish. With common being the least valuable, and mythic being the most valuable. It is entirely random what tier of fish you get upon any given cast.

The fish stew when activated starts a server-wide special contest and is found in all crates, at varying rates and acts as a smaller, shorter fishing contest, lasting 5 minutes. The rewards are higher with the top 3 places getting Magnolia key (first place)  instead and more Jasmine keys for consecutive places.

Additional Information

Some fishes use custom heads for their model, and could make for cool decorative pieces, they may also have custom lore, and some hidden items.

There are lots of fish to discover, and a lot of Easter eggs.

Chest Protection Guide

Chest Protection Guide

How To Protect Chests & Other Items


Locking chests, furnaces, doors, and other items is easy. Type /lock and left click the target item. You will receive confirmation that the item was locked.


If you need to unlock an item or chest for any reason, type /unlock and left click the target item. You will receive confirmation that the lock was removed.

Allowing Access

Being able to allow others access to your doors, fences, chests, and other items is important. Keeping them locked to the rest of the server is also important. To do this type /cmodify and then left click the target item.

If you need to lock, unlock or modify multiple chests you can first type /cpersist and then the desired command. That will allow you to type the command once, rather than repeatedly. Then repeat /cpersist when finished.

Lockable Items

Chest and item protection allows you to lock certain blocks and containers to protect your goods and valuables from theft or grief.

Items That Can Be Locked

Blast Furnace
Doors (Any)
Fence Gate (Any)
Shulker Box
