xP// Gaming is a friendly gaming community that has been running for nearly 8 years, going through various games and servers over time. This server, xP// Pixelmon, marks our very first Pixelmon server and our first modded server in general. Please note that we are not necessarily a child-friendly server -- cussing is allowed (though flaming is not!), and you should expect the occasional crude joke.
We currently run Pixelmon, and we're aiming for a Pokémon-style progression with 16 NPC gyms (+3 special gyms!), an Elite Four and a whole slew of side locations. We intend to offer a fair and balanced challenge, making shinies and legendaries actually matter -- don't expect to get them given to you on a silver platter! If you think that sounds fun and you want a true Pokémon experience, this server is for you!
As well as running Pixelmon, we also run Nations - a plugin similar to things like Towny and Factions that allows you to protect areas and create your very own towns and cities. These can then be joined by other players, which makes working together much easier. We have plans for making gyms something that nation owners can buy, but we haven't quite worked out the details yet. Stay tuned, there!
We're also aiming for a mostly player-run economy, with two separate currencies - Pixelmon's own PokéDollars, and Coins. PokéDollars are gained from trainer battles, and allow you to buy items from traders and villagers. Coins pay for nations, and also let you buy certain nice-to-haves from the Spawn shops. You can also sell some items here, with a lot more available by just holding them and typing /sell!
When it comes to permissions, everybody is pretty much equal. There are no special paid perks (apart from a fancy green name and our undying gratitude), and even the owners will never spawn in money or items for personal use. Again, we're going for a uniformly fair experience here. Fun for all involved!
