Link your Etherlands Profile

To play Minecraft on the blockchain, you have to successfully link your account and Minecraft account to Etherlands.

We've created a really simple process to do this:
  1. Launch the Etherlands server on Minecraft.
  2. To access Minecraft chat, type “/” or “T”.
  3. Type /link in the Minecraft chat.
  4. Type “/” or “T” again and select “Click here to link your Ethereum address”.
  5. You will automatically be directed to your Etherland profile; you’ll see your linking details automatically populated with the three magic words and your username. (Do not change any of these or you will have to repeat the process.)
  6. Select the “Connect Account” button under the player card to connect the account you created in step one.
  7. Once your account is connected, select “Link Minecraft Account”.
  8. Follow through with the Metamask prompts, and you’re all set to begin buying land!

In this video, we go over how you can link your Minecraft account to the Etherlands website!

Buy Land

In order to build, harvest resources, or play the game fully, you’ll need to buy land. Buying land is simple:
  1. Again, make sure you are in the Polygon Network at the top of your MetaMask account.
  2. Select the “map” tab in the upper left hand corner of the page. You will be brought to an interactive map of the world.
  3. Zoom in and scroll around the map until you find the perfect piece of land.
  4. Once you decide which section of the world you would like to purchase, adjust this square depending on how many chunks you wish to buy.
  5. To purchase your selection, select “Buy Now”.
  6. Create a district or select an existing district.
  7. Name the district and select “Preview Purchase”.
  8. Verify your purchase in the preview window, and confirm the purchase.
    Note: If it is your first time purchasing land, you will need to allow Etherlands to use your playtest tokens. Your Metamask account will appear; review the transaction and confirm.
  9. Once the transaction is confirmed, you will receive your first chunk of land.

In this episode, we go over how you can purchase land on the Etherlands website.

Login and Have Fun

Now that you’re linked and own land, you’re ready to start in on the fun! Upon logging into the server, we recommend using /boat and /tools to fully get started and navigate to your land safely. If you travel within the safe zones, you can travel safely without losing hunger or taking any type of damage. Safe zones can be found along the X and Z axis (X = 0 or Z = 0). You can use /warpme in-game to teleport to a district you own.
Note: /warpme can only be used once per district.
