Periodical news regarding Xeal Gaming

Unexpected update eh?

Anyways, I'm going to introduce you something brand new and something cool (sarcasm) on forum... The Dark Mode.

What is Dark Mode?

Dark Mode is the new forum theme inspired by iOS 11's Dark Mode Smart Invert (As a iOS User, that mode sucks anyway).
The main feature of this theme is to reduce the amount of white color on forum as much as possible.

May I preview it?

Why Dark Mode?
1) Using Forum with white background hurt some people's eye especially at night. This mode is made for people who are photosensitive to lights (like me).
2) OLED Benefits. Dark theme may increase battery life on any OLED display device (theoretically)
3) It works so much better than iOS Smart Invert. You'll enjoying dark theme everywhere on this forum. Unlike Apple's version, it doesn't work on any third party app. (Apple plz fix)
4) Don't you think it look good?

How do I get it?
Go to "Style Chooser" at bottom left corner of the page to select theme.
After you opened the theme menu, go and select FA Dark Mode. Ya... that's all.
(I cannot guarantee this mode is free from any problems)

There ya go, an update to a near dead forum. Shoulda have made this when Xeal is alive.

Enjoy the joke update
Hey guys,

In light of our recent events relating to our Minecraft Network, we have decided to keep the forums and community alive by introducing a few new changes.

Community Staff Positions
We are introducing a new set of staff positions for our community. Notably, we have introduced the Content Curator and Content Editor roles, which will be responsible for filling up this section with noteworthy information or even give their opinion on the relevant updates in the gaming scene to keep us updated.

Forums Restructuring
You may have noticed that the forums have been re-organised! You may now discuss about other games and servers in our new forum located on our discussions section. You may also want to provide ideas to the community or host your events/giveaways while using Xeal Gaming as a platform. In addition, the old Minecraft Matters forum has been archived and can be found here

We hope that these changes will be well-received by the community.

Thank you.

Hello players,

We have made some changes to main server and have some information we would like to share with you all in this update!

More sellable items!

You are now able to sell more items and blocks using /sell hand!
There will be many more resources for you to obtain money from.. It's time to get rid of those leftover items in your chests. :wink:

Use /worth on any item to check the item's selling price!

More crafting recipes!
Introducing… More custom recipes!

More items and blocks are craftable with new recipes! This includes some of the unobtainable items such as packed ice and endstone.

We have made some changes to a few (yes, only few) vanilla recipes. Don’t worry, we didn’t change any vanilla crafting recipe shapes to ensure there's no confusion among players.

We proudly present to you a new type of custom recipe, custom Furnace recipe!

We added all recipes in 2 phases. The first phase has already been implemented in the Early July update, now we will introduce second phase.
You can now check out the new crafting recipe here:

We plan to roll out more custom recipes in future. If any of you have any custom recipe ideas, do create a thread in the Suggestion Section of the...
Hi everybody!

Today, I'll be talking briefly about some recent changes that were made to the server, as well as some incoming and long awaited features that I'm sure everyone will enjoy! We have implemented some suggestions made by you guys and also some things that we have foreseen to be an improvement to the server.

Server shop
The server shop has been built by our lovely builders @ProtatoFTW and @o0FlyMonk0o. It will be implemented soon, so keep your eyes peeled! There are going to be items that were previously unobtainable and some rare blocks like the new purpur blocks!

New custom crafting recipes
There will now be custom crafting recipes for some things that are rare or uncraftable, such as chorus fruits! A full list of crafting recipes are in the link down below and if we add more in the future they will be edited there as well. *Note that podzol and mycelium contain the same items but different shape. You can only craft mycelium with that specific crafting recipe shape.

Faction power per player
The faction power of each player has been raised to 20. You can now go ahead and claim more land for your faction to build on! Have fun building!
