Features and Commands
So-called "slash" commands can be typed into the chat bar at any time while in-game to carry out various useful functions. While the number of commands can be a little bewildering, you don't need to remember everything all in one go. Feel free to visit this page as often as you like to familiarise yourself with what's available. It is updated regularly.
Some commands need additional information, such as the name of a player, in order to work, whilst sometimes a command will work differently depending on whether you include extra information.
- If a piece of information is required by a command in order to work, it is enclosed in [square brackets].
- If a piece of information is accepted but optional, it is enclosed in (round brackets).
Homes and Teleportation
Members on Cubic Worlds are currently allowed to set up to 10 homes, plus world spawn locations, at any given time. Members can also use the /call and /tpahere commands to requests teleports to and from each other. If you're a new player, keep in mind that it is considered good manners to ask a player in chat whether they are busy before /calling them.
- /spawn - teleports you to the spawn point of the server's main world.
- /sethome [Homename] - defines a home location with the given name.
- /home [Homename] - warps you to a previously defined home.
- /delhome [Homename] - deletes a named home location.
- /home - shows a list of the home locations you have set.
- /call [Playername] - request to teleport to a given player. Please ask them first!
- /tpa [Playername] - same function as /call but shorter.
- /tpahere [Playername] - sends a request to a player for them to teleport to you.
- /tpacancel - cancel a tp request you have pending.
- /tpaccept - accepts a player's teleport request and brings them to you. Note that the player must first use /call or /tpa in order for them to be teleported.
- /tpdeny - deny the request of a player who called to teleport to you.
Cubic Worlds uses a virtual currency called "Kubes", represented by the letter "K". You receive a daily bonus of 20 Kubes when you first log in for that day, and can gain more by trading with other players and selling items through chest shops.
- /money - shows the current balance of your wallet.
- /pay [Playername] [Amount] - pays a player the given number of Kubes.
- /baltop - lists the top balances of players on the server.
Chest Shops are a feature that allow players to create shops using chests.
There is a limit of 50 shops per player.
Creating a ShopChest
Want to create a new shop from scratch? That's easy.
- Place a chest
- Hold the item type you'll be selling
- Use the command: /shop create [Quantity] [BuyPrice] [SellPrice]
- Right-click your chest within 15 seconds
- Done! Your shop's information will be displayed in the form of a hologram and floating item.
You must use 0 as a SellPrice if you want to have a shop that only allows players to buy items.
Similarly, you must use 0 for BuyPrice to make a shop that only allows players to sell to you.
Deleting a ShopChest
To get rid of a new-style shop chest that you own, just type /shop remove and then punch the chest.
You can buy and sell from ShopChests in exactly the same way as before:
- Right-click to buy items from the shop at the given "Buy:" price
- Left-click to sell items to the shop at the given "Sell:" price
You can click either the chest itself or the hologram to make the trade.
There are a limited number of plots spread around spawn. These can be bought, sold and shared using the /as set of commands (e.g. /as buy to buy a plot). Prices vary depending on the area of the plot, from about 25 ku/sq block upwards.
Note: Current limit is 2 plots per player.
Block Protection (LWC)
As you play in Cubic Worlds you will eventually acquire a stash of items that you want to keep safe from other players. To minimise the chance of having your items stolen, every chest that you place in the world is locked by default so that only you can access it. Using the commands below, you can remove or adjust these lock protections in many ways. You can also lock furnaces and other container blocks which are not protected as standard.
Many features may be accessed through the /lwc command directly with additional parameters or by using these aliases:
- /cprivate - places a lock on a door, chest, etc. so that only you can open or destroy it.
- /lock - does the same thing as /cprivate.
- /cremove - removes a lock you have placed. With password locks, you must first enter the password.
- /unlock - does the same thing as /cremove.
- /cpublic - prevents the object from being destroyed, but allows free access to all.
- /cpassword - creates a password lock. Anyone who knows the password can access by typing it into chat, after clicking on the object.
- /cunlock - provides an opportunity to temporarily unlock a password locked object.
- /cmodify - lets you change the list of people who may access a lock. To remove an entry from the those able to access the object, preface the username with a hyphen (-) in the parameter list.
- - using /cmodify @playername provides the named player with admin access to the chest.
- TBD - allows players to put items in a chest, but only the lock owner can remove the items = a Donation chest.
- /cinfo - click on any locked object after typing this to see who the lock belongs to and whether you can access it.
Additional /lwc features that aren't replicated by the aliases above:
- /lwc -o - displays a list of people granted access into an object.
- /lwc menu - toggles the help display of /lwc aliases or full commands.
- /lwc mode persist - makes it so that you can use a /lwc feature multiple times without having to retype it each time.
- /lwc mode droptransfer select - allows you to specify a chest where all intentionally dropped items are instantly transferred to.
- This chest may be on a different world than the one you drop items from. It does not save your current inventory in case of death, but makes it so that it is unnecessary to return to a chest to unload excess inventory from what you carry.
- /lwc mode droptransfer on - enables drop transferring. Note: it is very difficult to give someone an item when this is enabled.
- /lwc mode droptransfer off - disables drop transferring.
- /lwc -r modes - removes any previously specified /lwc mode assignments.
Note that only Citizens and higher can make colored signs. To make colored text, type & immediately followed by the appropriate letter or number for the desired color, then type the text you want to be colored.
0 - ========= 1 - ========= 2 - ========= 3 - ========= 4 - ========= 5 - ========= 6 - ========= 7 - ========= 8 - ========= 9 - ========= a - ========= b - ========= c - ========= d - ========= e - ========= f - =========
Other text formatting
Note: If a color code is used after a formatting code, the formatting code will be disabled beyond the color code point. For example,
&cX&nY displays as XY, whereas
&nX&cY displays as XY. Therefore, when using a color code in tandem with a formatting code, ensure the color code is used first and reuse the formatting code when changing colors.
&r can be used to reset all texts format beyond it, e.g.
&nXXX&rYYY displays as XXXYYY
