Description

Sequel to the popular MineZ gamemode, MineZ 2 makes its debut. Featuring the core backbone of MineZ, MineZ 2 takes things to a whole new level. In addition to the existing bleeding, infection, hunger, thirst, and healing systems of the first game, MineZ 2 introduces an extended crafting system, various qualities of armor and weapons, harvesting, purifying water and cooking. As a coup de grâce for end game players can design and purchase their own housing and purchase upgrades such as limited storage. From a technical standpoint, MIneZ 2 is the first true Minecraft MMO in that a single realm persists across multiple servers, complete with dungeon instancing and full load balancing. Over 1,000 players can be on a single MineZ 2 realm at a time.
