Hello all.

First of all, I want to apologize for my lack of a attention I have given to Helios.
I could go on with excuses and what not, but I just want to leave all that behind.

Come to think of it, in December the idea of Helios would be a year old.

So, here is what is going to happen.

We will be removing our current game lineup and in it's place, we will create prison, deadlyfe, FTB beyond, and others of the like. These game types are ones that I know how to get going, and can explore other options in the future.

FTB is in the works at ftb.heliosgaming.net
You can join and go about the spawn for the moment.

Deadlyfe is something that Nick is going to start building here shortly.

And I can't wait to get started on prison, it always was one of my favorites.

Once again, I apologize for the many months of nothing, and hope to make a wonderful community again.
[Update 1]
So, we actually had a tie!
@DiamondHunterToo and @origamifish both will recieve their choice of gift card!
You guys can PM me for your card details!
[End Update]

Hi everyone!

We have two games modes out now in beta testing, Survival and Skywars but we need your help. No matter how much testing we do behind the scenes, when a game mode goes live there are going to be bugs and glitches we did not find. To that end we are asking our players to lend a hand to help us find and fix these issues. We thought to help inspire you to help us out we would make a contest out of it.

Here is how it will work. For every original bug or glitch you report you will get a point. The person to get the most points after 30 days will receive a prize. Prizes will be announced at the start of each recording period. Our first prize is going to be a $25 gift card!

To be considered an original bug or glitch
  1. You must be the first to report it
  2. The bug or glitch must be recreatable. Please include how to recreate the problem in your report
  3. It must be reported in writing on the forums under Private Questions
  4. It must be an actual glitch or bug, not just something that you think needs to be changed.
  5. The admins will be the final judge of what counts or does not count.

So get out there and play the game and find us some bug!
The white-list on survival has been removed!

Please note that this gamemode is not in it's final stage, and things may change before release.
We are always open to suggestions to fixes, changes, and improvements.

Our survival has many differences in game mechanics over vanilla survival, so I have added some documentation below.

Compressed Blocks
You have the ability to compress and de-compress various blocks. Simply place 9 of the same block into a crafting table to recieve a single "compressed" block. Compressed blocks can be de-compressed in a crafting grid. Compressed blocks can be placed in the world, however note that breaking a placed compressed block will only return you a random number of normal blocks between 5 and 9!
  • All kind of woods (Logs)
  • All kind of planks
  • Dirt
  • Stone
  • Andesite, Diorite & Granite !
  • Cobblestone
  • Sand and Red Sand
  • Gravel
  • Soul Sand
  • Netherrack

Active Animals
Animals and normally passive mobs will attack you if you bother them too much, or try to kill them. Note that all Animals and mobs within a 10 block radius of you will attack if any other attacks. Animals/passive mobs that will attack are:
  • Bat
  • Chicken
  • Cow
  • Mooshroom
  • Pig
  • Sheep
  • Squid
  • Horse
  • Villager
  • Wolf
  • Ocelot
  • Rabbit
  • Polar Bear
  • Lama
  • Parrot

XP Bottle
You have the ability to store, retrieve, and transfer XP.
To do this, you need to craft a magic bottle.

To add XP from your player to the bottle, left click the bottle while it is in your hand. To take XP from the bottle, right click the bottle while it is in your hand. Either...
Hi folks,
Sorry for the lack of presence on the server and on the forums. Recently I had my whole world turned upside down and have been trying to deal with a lot of personal stuff. Hopefully that will be over soon, but I have not been able to be on top of anything on the server in the last few weeks. Paw has also been dealing with a lot of personal stuff and so our opening has been delayed. I understand that our personal issues are not your problem but I ask for a little understanding. Things should be getting back to normal soon and progress will resume.

In the meantime, Skywars is up now and I hope people have been having fun on it. I know Thane has already been into the void but I suggest that a few people join him and show him a game can be fun instead of letting him play in the void.

Thanks for the patience you have shown and when I have an update I will let you know. Fingers crossed.
We are not quite 100% ready to open but we decided that it is time to give you all a peek at our new world!

We have opened our hub for you to explore while we finish up the final details on our servers. As each server is completed we will open it up over the course of the coming week. We hope you like what you see.

Also our TTT server is up and running so please check it out!
Welcome to Helios Gaming!

Helios Gaming started as a dream between three individuals who wanted to build a different type of gaming community, one that had evolved from just Minecraft to include other types of games.

Starting with just a few servers our hope is to provide a great gaming experience with a close knit community that keeps players coming back. Having fun and making friends with games that you love is our goal.

We have big plans for the future but we are dedicated to making each addition perfect for our players to ensure your continued enjoyment. So join us on this journey to build an incredible environment for players to have fun met new people and make friends.
