What is Towny?
Towny is a land claiming plugin that lets you create towns and claim land with them. Towns add an entirely new layer of gameplay to the server. Towns can be sources of political drama, the birthplace of an economic empire, or even a regional power that
has plans to rule the world. There are endless possibilities, but the primary purpose of Towny is to protect your land from outsiders. You have full control of the land that your town has claimed, and you can modify the permissions of your town,
sell portions of your land to your residents to live on, have embassies built on your land from other towns, create farms, etc.
Nations are collections of towns that have decided to work together. Nations offer a bonus of
to every town in the nation. However, nation upkeep is very steep compared to towns. Towns and nations are costly to make, and if you are new, we suggest you join one and learn how towns work before
diving into creating one of your own.
Section 1: Upkeep and Costs
As stated above, towns and nations are expensive. Towns cost $40,000
to create and Nations cost $250,000
to create. The upkeep for nations is $5,000
per town in the nation. The upkeep for towns can be found below. Land does not cost anything to claim. You can purchase more claims by typing /town buy bonus [amount]
. Bonus claims cost
per claim, to a maximum of 200
bonus claims. Lastly, overclaiming is when you have claimed more land than you have claims available. This can happen when a player leaves your town
and your town downgrades or if you leave your nation. The cost is $250
per overclaim per day to prevent abuse.
