Walking around our huge map can get tiring after awhile. Why not buy a horse, mule, or donkey to make your travels easier? Our server goes above and beyond the typical ways of owning a horse. You can summon them at will with a command and dismiss them to their virtual pen if you’d like.
There are three ways to obtain a horse, mule, or donkey. The first way is to buy one via the in-game command /horses buy name type. If you would like to see the types of horses do /horses types. For example, if you want a white horse named Unicorn do /horses buy Unicorn white and then it will show up where you are standing in a few seconds.
Regular horses are 4,000 voxels, donkeys are 2,000 voxels, and mules are 2,000 voxels. If you would like an undead zombie horse or a skeleton horse they cost 50,000 voxels.
The other ways to get a horse, mule, or donkey are to get one from a friend and walk it home or find one in the wild. It is very hard to find one in the wild though because they are rare.
If you get a horse from the wild or a player, you’ll need to tame it. Right click the horse to get on. Keep riding the horse until hearts float around it. That means it loves you and wants to stay. You can put a saddle on them to ride them.
If you get a horse, mule, or donkey from a way other than the command, you’ll need to get a nametag to be able to summon it. Nametags have one use only and are found in dungeon chests. If you name your hourse with a nametag you can use all of the commands the summonable horses have. Some of the commands you can do with summoned horses are:
/horses summon yourhorsename – Summons your horse for riding.
/horses heal amount – This one lets you heal the horse you have summoned at the time.
/horses rename name newname – Hate the name you picked? Well you can change it!
/horses list player – Tells you the list of horses you have
/horses delete – Deletes the horse.
/horses dismiss – Dismisses it to its virtual pen until you are ready to summon it again.
Horses you summon are also immortal so you can never lose them! Awesome!
