Creating Settlements

How to create settlements and claim land on the server

Players can claim land on the server by creating settlements in The Frontier. It costs new players 1,000 emeralds to create their first settlement, with the cost of upgrading and creating settlements increasing for each player over time as they claim more land.

Finding Claimable Land

To get started, use the /explore unclaimed command to find claimable plots in The Frontier. If you find a plot you like but do not have enough emeralds to claim it then you can use the /plot save command to save the location so that you can come back and claim it later. Once you find the right location and have enough emeralds, you can claim it using the /settlement create command.

Claiming Land For Settlements

Creating a settlement claims the first settlement plot. Additional plots can then be claimed for the settlement using the /settlement claim command. Those plots can then be converted into homes and shops using the /home create and /shop create commands. Homes can be rented and sold to other players, while shops can be used to trade items for emeralds with other players.

Changing Settlement Names

Settlement owners can rename their settlements using the /settlement rename <name> command while standing in the settlement that they want to rename. Players can teleport to settlements using the /settlement spawn <name> command.

Upgrading Settlements

Settlement owners can upgrade their settlements to claim more land using the /s upgrade command. When settlements are first created, the settlement owner can claim up to 10 plots. When the settlement is upgraded to level 2, the settlement owner will be able to claim up to 25 plots. After that, the number of plots that can be claimed increases by 25 plots per additional level. Upgrading settlements also increases the settlement limits.

Pro tip: Players can use the "F3 + G" keyboard shortcut to show and hide chunk borders which is helpful when claiming plots for settlements and when using plot commands.
