Happy Birthday Vanilla Tyme!
On April 21, 2021, Vanilla Tyme will be 4 years old! We have decided to hold a Dragon Rush UHC party!
Please join us on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 7pm EDT when we will take on the dragon, UHC style! This UHC will not have a shrinking border or a deathmatch. The goal is to be the first team to kill the Ender Dragon or to be the last team left standing!
The teams will be randomly formed by a staff member as we wait in the lobby. Please show up at least 15-30 minutes BEFORE 7pm EDT. If you show up after the event has started it is too late to join.
As with all UHC games, Optifine is the ONLY MOD allowed. NO OTHER MODS, no exceptions!
There will be a special prize to the team if they defeat the dragon: each living member of the team will be rewarded with their own personalized Wildcard Collectible to be distributed through voting for the entirety of this map!
We will also be taking a group photo at spawn in front of our birthday cake at 6:50pm EST before we start the UHC. If you'd like to be in the picture, meet us there!
In addition to the Dragon Rush UHC, we will be gifting all players with an Event Collectible to commemorate Vanilla Tyme's 4th birthday!
PLEASE HEAD OVER TO DISCORD TO READ THE FULL RULES FOR THE DRAGON RUSH UHC in the #dragon-rush-rules channel.
We hope to see everyone at the Dragon Rush UHC!

Would you like to win my new and improved collectible? Here is your chance. All you have to do is win the most Weekly Competitions on Vanilla Tyme for the next 2 months.
From now until May 14th, participate in weekly competitions for your chance to win! After the comp ends on May 14th, I will tally the number of 1st place wins for each player. Whoever has the most will get my collectible!
In the event of a tie, I will factor in 2nd and 3rd place wins as well. If that also results in a tie, I will hold a raffle between the winners to determine who gets my collectible. 😊
Happy Easter Semi-Vanilla Tyme!
To celebrate, the Easter Bunny left a shulker full of goodies for you at his house at /warp holiday!
We've also got an Eggcelent Easter Egg Hunt for you! You'll find a light blue shulker, with some items missing, at the Easter Bunny's house. To finish filling this shulker, you'll need to hunt around /spawn to find 18 chests with goodies inside. You may take 1 slot from each chest that you find. The chests will be labeled with "Easter Egg Hunt" signs, so you'll know you've found the right ones. Each chest is numbered, so keep track of what you find.
Egg Hunt Rules:
- Please do not post coordinates to any of the chests or share exactly where they are in chat. If you'd like to give hints, please do so only in DMs.
- ONLY TAKE 1 SLOT from each Easter Egg Hunt chest
- DO NOT take more than 1 pink and 1 light blue shulker from the Easter Bunny's house
- Taking shulkers for other players is prohibited unless you have staff permission
- All hunt chests can be found within the limits of /warp spawn
- Look high and low for hidden chests. You may need an elytra or scaffolding to find some
- If you find a chest that is empty during your hunt, send a message to Elektra or Wicked_Violet on Discord and we will take care of it ASAP.
DO NOT GO IN STAFF ONLY AREAS
You will have until Saturday, April 17th at 9pm EDT to find all of the hidden chests.
Good luck and have fun!
Happy Easter Vanilla Tyme!
To celebrate the holiday, the Easter Bunny has left a basket full of goodies on Holiday Hill for everyone! And, he's even hidden some very valuable eggs around spawn and the events areas!
You will find your shulker of gifts, plus an empty shulker for the hunt, at Holiday Hill on the Vanilla Tyme server. Follow the path in to the build and take the carrot elevator up to the top!
For the hunt, there are a total of 30 eggs to find. You'll find 1 on Holiday Hill near the bunny and the other 29 are hidden throughout spawn and events areas. You will know you've found an egg when you spot a chest with a sign: "Easter Egg Hunt". Please ONLY TAKE EGGS FROM CHESTS THAT ARE MARKED WITH THIS SIGN! You may only take 1 egg from each chest. The chests are numbered to help you keep track of what you have found.
Each chest will contain eggs that have various values: 1, 3, or 5 points. BE CAREFUL NOT TO THROW YOUR EGGS AS THEY ARE VERY FRAGILE!
Once you have found the hidden eggs, you can use them to purchase GREAT items in the Easter Egg Shop! This shop is located inside of the Easter Bunny build on Holiday Hill. The secret entrance can be found by dropping down through one of the carrots on the build at 358 105 289.
Before you begin your hunt, you'll want to browse through the exclusive items for sale. Up for purchase are things like elytra, beacons, netherite and even staff collectibles! The better the item, the more it will cost. You will want to find all 30 eggs! If you do find all 30, you will have a total of 78 points to spend in the Easter Egg Shop! Look high and low for the hidden eggs. You MAY need elytra, scaffolding, and some respiration to assist in your search. DO NOT ENTER ANY BUILDINGS/AREA MARKED FOR STAFF ONLY.
To turn in your eggs for prizes:
- Decide which items you want and what you have enough points for
- 1, 3, 5, & 7 point items can be purchased by swapping the correct amount of egg points for the item directly in the barrels at the Easter Egg Shop (inside the bunny build)
- For high point items, you first need to take a ticket from the chest/barrel for each of the items you wish to purchase. Then, the ticket(s) and the correct total amount of egg points must be placed in a barrel in the Egg Trade Room. Place a sign on the front with your name and the date you are turning in your eggs.
- Please be patient and the Easter Bunny will fill your order!
- Everything you need is set up for you inside the bunny build
- If you find that there are no empty barrels when you are ready to purchase, please send a message on Discord to Elektra or Wicked_Violet and we will take care of it ASAP.
- Once you have found all 30 chests, you should have a total 12 eggs worth 1 point, 12 eggs worth 3 points and 6 eggs worth 5 points.
EGG HUNT RULES:
- EASTER EGGS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE!!!! This means that you CAN NOT give away or sell your eggs to anyone. NO EXCEPTIONS!!
- Please do not post coordinates to any of the chests in chat. If you want to give hints, do so in DMs ONLY.
- DO NOT take more than 1 egg from each Easter Egg hunt chest
- DO NOT take more than 1 gift shulker or empty shulker. You are not allowed to pick up either shulker for any other player without staff permission
- DO NOT TAKE ANOTHER PLAYER'S EGGS OR ITEMS FROM THE EGG TRADE ROOM
- All hunt chests can be found within the 1000x1000 spawn limits. That's 500 in each direction from 0,0. Exception: None in stalls/shops areas.
Staff will be monitoring the hunt and checking in to make sure you are following the rules. We want everyone to have a good time and get some great stuff, so please be on your best behavior! CHEATING AND THEFT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
You will have until Saturday, April 17th at 9pm EDT to find all the eggs and turn them in to purchase your items.
We hope you have an eggcelent tyme!
