Shopping District Update (SMP)

Introducing the new shopping district and shopping system to our SMP!

We're using a plugin called ChestShop. It's a vanilla-friendly way to automate the shopping process, improving our players' experiences on the SMP!

Buying or Selling

Shops can be setup using signs. The buyer can either right-click to buy the item and its quantity that is listed, or can left-click to sell the item listed to the shop owner. When selling, depending on how the shop owner configures their sign/shop, the sell price will typically be lower than the buy price.

Creating A Shop

  • Place a chest/trapped chest/barrel.
  • Place a sign 1 block away from the chest or on the chest.
  • On the sign, write:
  • Leave the first line empty. It will be automatically filled with your name.
  • The second line is the amount of items to buy or sell
  • The third line is a combination of buy and sell prices. You need to have a price indicator (like 'B' - price that will apply to items BOUGHT by PLAYERS - or 'S' - the SELL price) near the price - the prices are separated by a colon :
  • Some of the possible price combinations: "B 5:5 S", "B 5", "S free".

The forth line will hold the id/name of the item. Write ? on the sign and the item will be autofilled with the one from the chest or you can click on the sign with the item afterwards.
Optionally you can put the actual name of the item on the forth line. You can find out the name of the item that you're holding by running /iteminfo.

Resulting shop:

A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from Phoenix616

Shopping District

The brand new shopping district is located near spawn, at around -7421 63 -2652! It is in the plains biome next to spawn, just across the river. At the moment, it has not been fully built up and established. However, once shops start being built, it should begin to take shape!


1. Do not grief any parts of the new shopping district - Even if no player has built there, it is a part of our shopping district so must not be griefed. For example, do not intentionally let creepers blow up land/shops. Please use common sense for this.

2. All shops must be built within the general shopping district area.

3. All shops must try and fit with a specific theme, ideally the theme of the item being sold, or a universal shopping district theme (such as a rustic style for instance).

4. Please respect other people's shops.

5. Please do not make your shop too large. The maximum size of a shop is 14X14 blocks.

6. Wherever possible, please do not make a monopoly.

Huge thanks to Phoenix616, the author of this plugin! We hope you enjoy the new shopping district!

Season 4 News

To begin, I hope you had an amazing Christmas! 🎄❄

  • So, I'll begin by giving you the unfortunate news that season 4 will not be releasing during this holiday. Instead, we are aiming for the next upcoming holiday. This is because we do not want to rush the final stages of it, and consequently release an unpolished SMP that is not the quality we would have liked for it to be. The team and I have spent countless hours on this project for you all, so we think it would be a shame to rush the very final stages of it. 
HOWEVER, it's not all bad news. 
  • We've had a look at the results in our polls Discord channel,, and are therefore going to release a semi-vanilla SMP in the mean time. This will be replacing "season 4", and will follow a similar style to our previous seasons. This season of the SMP will carry on even after the release of the previously named "season 4", because we know that many of you prefer vanilla gameplay. That being said, this SMP we are releasing (in the next few days, hopefully) will not be completely vanilla; it will have a few minor additions and quality of life updates, but nothing that majorly affects the vanilla experience will be added. This season will have no lore, and will just be a standard SMP, similar to our previous seasons.


  • The previously named "season 4" will be rebranded with a new name, which we have not yet finalised. For the sake of this announcement, we'll call it "Idk A Name Yet Lol". And don't worry, this will not be the final name - or will it...? Anyway, we will aim to release this at the start of the next holiday. It will be feature rich with unique lore, an awesome map, and epic new features (non-vanilla features). It will encourage teamwork and determination, and who knows, maybe you will even be able to build a thriving civilisation out of the few resources that will be available to you? Whilst we'll not disclose the storyline behind it yet, we'll give you a hint 🚀


  • To conclude, whilst "Idk A Name Yet Lol" (previously known as season 4) will not be releasing this holiday, we will be pushing out a brand new semi-vanilla season of our SMP in the next few days, which will be our new season 4. This will remain even after the release of "Idk A Name Yet Lol". The upcoming game mode of "Idk A Name Yet Lol" will be replacing Lifesteal for the time being, as our Lifesteal game mode has not been very popular recently (even prior to the server issues with it).  This was done for many reasons, such as to ensure we do not rush the final stages of "Idk A Name Yet Lol" , and to appeal to both player bases: those that like custom, non-vanilla features, and those that simply prefer vanilla Minecraft with friends.

At GalaxyWay, we strive to deliver you a high quality Minecraft multiplayer experience, so we hope you understand our decision on this. Huge credit to @BakedHeinzBean for suggesting this, I really appreciate it, and I believe it is the right move to satisfy all of our players. He has been dedicated to this server for such a long time now, and I cannot thank him enough for it! Furthermore, I'd like to give a big thank you to our staff team for making the previously named "season 4" possible! We've together worked incredibly hard, and I can't wait for you to see the currently unnamed game mode when it finally releases next holiday! You'll be pinged on Discord when our semi-vanilla SMP releases, which will hopefully be in a few days! Anyway, that's all for now!

I am delighted to announce that our new branding has finally arrived...

Introducing the new GalaxyWay logo and icon!  🎉 

Our new branding will slowly be rolled out to our various platforms up until season 4, where it will finally be added in-game on the day of release. Today, our Discord will receive an update with the new branding to make it more aesthetically pleasing! Moreover, soon it will also be implemented into the website.


This cost a lot of money, so I would really appreciate your support for season 4, as it would mean a lot to see many players enjoying a new storyline, with some awesome features!


We hope you enjoy our new branding, and our looking forward to the release of season 4! Also... HAPPY ADVENT! 🎄

Branding Update 6 months ago

It's been a while, so I think you all deserve an update on how season 4 development is going!

The New Logo

I have hired an illustrator to professionally design a new logo and icon for GalaxyWay. It will give the server a more professional brand, and will offer us more opportunities for the network in the future. It will also be a better representation of our brand - a Minecraft network.

New Ranks

Soon, I'll begin work on creating new ranks for our network. This is because right now, the server simply isn't sustaining itself, and hasn't been for a long time. Whilst I am running the network out of passion, I also need to monetise it more to ensure I can keep this project alive. I really appreciate those who have donated in the past - it means the world to me, and helps me keep working on GalaxyWay. I appreciate your kindness and generosity. However, I'm afraid I still need to aim to monetise the network more. The new ranks will have specific prices, each with varying perks. Their names will also be galaxy/space themed, so let me know in #💬┇general if you have any ideas. Thanks, and I appreciate your understanding on this upcoming monetisation change.


The new lore will simply act as a base storyline that determines the features of the starting world and the circumstances of it. I do want to stress that it will **not** be a scripted season though. Furthermore, huge credit to all our staff members, especially our @Lore Department for building and thinking of the crucial elements to shape this coming season's storyline. Additionally, development on S4 is going well.


More development updates may be coming soon. Other than that, I hope you have a spooktacular Halloween! Mwahahahaha...
