Do you need assistance as to how to play on LilacMC? If so, then you are at the perfect place. If you need more help, you can participate in the general chat and ask other players for help on the Discord server. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can message our staffs directly.
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.
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.
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.
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:
Common, Rare, Epic tiered Artifacts are the only tiers that can drop from mobs.
You can get the legendary tiered artifacts from the Legendary Orb which you can only get from crates and vote parties.
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.
■ 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.
■ 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.

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
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.
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!)

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
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.
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.
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.

In order to prevent unnecessary lag on the server there are some items / entities that have a limit on how many can be placed within 1 chunk.
Distance: a mob within X distance of another mob is counted towards one group.
Villager: 50 per group (distance of 3) Animals: 25 per group (distance of 25) - 3 Axolotls per group Monsters: 10 per group (distance of 3) Minecart Hoppers: 8 per group (distance of 25)
Note: It is suggested to add at least 8 blocks to the distance between each group so that they wouldn't overlap.
Hoppers: 20 per chunk Redstone: 60 per chunk Tiles (chests, frames, etc.): 256 per chunk Spawners: 8 per chunk
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.
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.
Chest and item protection allows you to lock certain blocks and containers to protect your goods and valuables from theft or grief.
Not to be confused with ArtMap, mapart allows players to create a canvas on 128x128 block area. One of the coolest things that you can do with Mapart is that you can bring any (appropriate) image that you find online into LilacMC!
1.0 How to install Fabric and Litematica!
One of the most important things that you need for making mapart is Litematica.
Litematica is a Fabric mod and is used to render in your mapart! There are two ways that you can install Fabric and that's through the clean install on https://fabricmc.net/use/installer/ OR you can use the Essential client where Fabric will be installed for you for what version you desire! If you would like the easy way I highly recommend going to https://essential.gg/ and following the instructions after clicking download. When using the Essential client route please make sure that the version that you download is for Fabric and not Forge. One of the great things about Essential is that it works for both MacOS and Windows.
1.1 Installing Fabric for Windows
If you have decided to go with the Essential Client method I would skip this section and go to Section 2 since it might cause some confusion. If you are installing Fabric for Mac proceed to Section 1.2.
To install Fabric for Windows you would first want to head to https://fabricmc.net/use/installer/ and click the button to “Download for Windows.” After downloading this .EXE file run it and you will be prompted with a window to install the client for the latest released version of Minecraft. Since we are installing Fabric for ourselves make sure that the tab is on “Client” and the correct version of Minecraft that you desire is installed. I would also make sure that your “Loader Version” is on the most recent update before installing. For the “Select Install Location” it should end in your “.minecraft” folder. If done correctly this is what it should look like:
PLEASE NOTE: THIS GUIDE WAS WRITTEN WHEN THE LATEST UPDATE WAS 1.19.3. VERSIONS MIGHT OF CHANGED IN THE FUTURE.
After you have clicked “Install” you will see a window that will confirm that the version that was inputted and loader version were installed. Your Minecraft Launcher should have a profile with the Fabric logo with the Version that you installed. It is recommended that you launch the game to make sure that everything works. The next steps are in Section 2.
1.2 How to installed Fabric for MacOS
If you have decided to go with the Essential Client method I would skip this section and go to Section 2 since it might cause some confusion. If you are installing Fabric for Windows please go back to Section 1.1.
Installing Fabric for MacOS is a little bit more complex than Windows but is a lot easier with Essential. If you would still like to do a clean installation go to https://fabricmc.net/use/installer/ and download the universaljar file. After installing the file and you attempt to open it MacOS will stop you from opening it.
Proceed to go to your settings and click on “Security & Privacy” where in the “General” tab you should see the Fabric Installer application being attempted to be opened.
After you open the installer there will be a java icon on your dock and when opened you will get a window where you can change the Minecraft Version and “Loader Version.” I wouldn’t recommend changing anything before doing anything unless you know what you are doing. If you would like to install an older version of minecraft you can change it with the “Minecraft Version” tab. When you are ready just hit the “Install” button and a new profile will be created in your Minecraft Launcher.
When you launch your Minecraft Launcher you should see a brand new installation with the fabric logo. It is recommended to launch your game to make sure that everything works.
2 Installing Litematica (and other dependent mods)
When using Fabric one of the first things you need to download is the Fabric API.
Fabric API is a library mod for the Fabric. To install the API if you visit https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/fabric-api/files and install the correct version file. That means if you installed the 1.19.2 Minecraft Version in the Fabric Installer then you would want to install the latest version of the Fabric API on Curse Forge. I would recommend installing the API file on your desktop or a file locaiton so that you can have easy access to it.
2.1 Adding Litematica to your Minecraft folder on Windows
The easiest way that you can open your %Appdata% folder on Windows is by right clicking your start button, should be the windows button, and clicking the “Run.”
You should be prompted with a window and all that is needed is to type “%Appdata%” and hit “OK.”
After you hit ok you should be prompted with a folder with a “.minecraft” at the top of the list. After you open this file you should see a ton of files but all that is needed is your “mods” folder. All you have to do now is drag the three files into the mods folder. If you do not see a mods folder launch Minecraft with the Fabric and after the game has fully opened just close it and look for your mods folder and just add the three files into the folder. Launch your game after and make sure that everything works!
If you are using Essential after you open your “.minecraft” folder there should be a folder called “essential [Game_Version.]” In the folder you should see a “mods” folder in there with a file called “Essential” already in there. All that is needed is to have you add the three files into that folder.
2.2 Adding Litematica to your Minecraft folder on MacOS
Installing the mods on MacOS are a little more confusing than Windows but still possible. The first step is to open up your Finder app which displays all your folders and hit “Shift + Command + G” and you will be prompted with a search window that asks you to go to a certain folder. In this search tab you would want to type “~/Library/Application Support” and hit enter. You might have to search for a bit but open your “Minecraft” folder. After opening this folder there should be a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a “mods” folder just open your Minecraft Launcher and run the profile with Fabric and close it after launching and it should be there. You then want to get your three files and drag and drop the files into the folder. Launch your game after to make sure everything works!
If you are using Essential on MacOS instead of looking for your “mods” folder there should be a folder called “essential [Game Version.]” In the folder you should see a “mods” folder in there with a file called “Essential” already in there. All that is needed is to have you add the three files into that folder.
3 Creating the render
The website thats used to create the render is going to be https://rebane2001.com/mapartcraft/. With this website you can create renders of images of your choosing for your mapart. You can upload the image that you would like to upload by just clicking the “Pick Image” box and uploading the image that you would like. The image will be turned into a 128x128 pixels.
For the settings on the right most of them do not to be changed except for one. Staircasing is something that allows the blocks in your mapart have 3 different colors and have a nicer color selection but it is a lot harder to build without /fly and even harder to take down to get your materials back. The add blocks under are for blocks that cannot be supported by themselves like the pressure plates. If you have an area already planned out for your mapart I would recommend just turning this off OR changing the “Blocks to add” to something different than the blocks that were selected on the left list. The other settings are there to just edit the colors of the image and this can change which blocks are required. I wouldn’t recommend these settings UNLESS you know what you are doing. The map size setting changes how big you want the map. This can add more detail but will make the map bigger and require more blocks. It is recommended to start off creating 1x1’s.
After you select the blocks that you would want all that is needed is to click the “Download as NBT.”
4 Using Litematica to create your map
After creating the render for your mapart you would need to open your ``.minecraft” folder again if you closed it. A new folder should of appeared called “schematics.” Just drop your file that you received from the render website in this folder and launch your game. You can actually edit this folder while in game so you don’t have to restart or close your game when adding and deleting schematics. I would recommend starting a new creative superflat and pressing your “M” key to make sure that you have the mods installed and working. If it is working you should get a menu like this.
If not, go back and make sure that the versions of the mods you have installed are correct.
If you get the menu click the “Load Schematics” tab and there should be a green “V” symbol followed by the name of the file that was saved.
To load the file all you have to do is click the name and then load schematic on the bottom left corner. Now to learn how to place render correctly you want to first get an empty map and open it. The best position for this would be an ocean or a giant flat area. After you load an area you should see yourself as a little white arrow.
Now press “F3+G” to open up chunk borders. If done correctly there should be a yellow wireframe in a 16 block by 16 block square. Following these borders to the top left one of the map. If done correctly the border and map should look like this.
The white concrete block is a block that is inside the map still and inside the chunk border while the black concrete block is outside the map. To properly load the map you would want to stand on the black concrete block and load the schematic.
If done correctly the line of cobblestone should be at the top and outside the map. If done incorrectly your mapart will be made incorrectly with a giant ugly line.
If you have placed your render properly with the cobblestone wall a block over the chunk border line your map art should have the full render as shown below.
If you want to move around your schematic all you have to do is just open the Litematic menu and go to schematic placements. Then click on the “configure” and open a big menu with a ton of options. On the right hand side you will see the placement of origin.
The hotkey for this menu is the numpad “-.” If you would like to change the hotkey you can press “M+C” and click the “Hotkeys” tab and change it with the “open GuiPlacementSettings.”
The placement origin is extremely useful for moving around the render. You can either type the coords of where you would like the render or use your scroll wheel on the plus and minus button. The white box right next to the buttons you can use to lock the cords so that you can’t accidently move the render if changing the coords.
If you may have noticed you can see that the render is just floating in the air and is very hard to reach for. The best way you can bring it down is by just opening up the GUI placement settings and just move the Y level down by 2 or how many it is for the render to touch the ground.
Now that your map is loaded correctly one very important step is to go to your GUI placement menu and click on “Material List.” If you have your render distance high enough you should see a list of blocks that are needed for your mapart. If you do not have a high render distance your list should just be empty like below and all you have to do is press “Refresh” at the top left corner.
When you exit this menu you should see at the bottom right of the screen what chunks are needed for you to render to get the complete material list.
After you load these chunks you can open your materials list again you should get an entire list of what is needed to build your mapart.
Another way to look at the list is to use the “M+V” which opens the verification tab. It looks about the same with a bit more information. After you press “Start Verification,” you may need to render some chunks, you should get a complete list that looks somewhat like below.
This list shows the wrong blocks, wrong states of block (like rotations, and if blocks are waterlogged or not), and missing blocks. The “Extra Blocks” tab has been known to just confuse players since its all the blocks below the actual render. If you click on a “Missing Block” all the missing blocks will pop up with a blue outline that will make it easier to know where to place certain blocks. Below I have selected “Warped Wart Blocks” and you can see that the Warped Wart Blocks are highlighted and brighter than other blocks. This feature is extremely useful for finding blocks that you have missed or blocks that aren’t supposed to be in the render.
All you need now is just to gather the material and start placing the blocks required for your render. When you are completed with your render you 100% should make an extra map of the area and put it into a cartography table with a glass pane to “lock” the mapart and stop it from getting changed/updated. If you would like to make copies of the map you would need to make empty maps with the locked map together in the inventory and you can make as many copies as you have empty maps and sell them to others!
