A player using the /sethome command.

Fast travel implies a way of getting around quicker than walking; There are numerous methods of fast travel in MinecraftOnline, many of which involve commands, and some which involve world features or game dynamics.

Learning to utilise fast travel in all its forms will free up a lot of time for you and make your experience on MCO much more rewarding. Many new players will bug staff members for teleports, not knowing an efficient path to their destination. Asking for a teleport wastes staff time and is contrary to what survival is supposed to be about!

Nexus Portal Network

Project Anubis created a network of teleportation routes that are collectively known as the Nexus. The Nexus Central is close to spawn at the geometrical centre of 8 branch hubs that in turn are connected to 3 sub-hubs further out from the center. The sub-hubs are located close to existing features, cities, and settlements that may then be reached by local road and rail networks. Hubs and connected cities are listed in the Nexus Portals page and are marked on the live map with an orange icon orange icon with a circle that resembles the schematic of the Nexus hubs. In addition the Nexus villages.png villages, Nexus towns.png towns, Nexus cities.png cities, and other map features that are Nexus destinations have an orange border around their green icons.

If you are interested in having your town added to the Nexus, contact an admin to have the location evaluated. For more information, see Nexus.


A network of railways been constructed to link settlements all over Freedonia using Craftbook's advanced minecart features. For further details, see Freedonia Railway System.


Faster travel via the nether is most practical through the use of the NHS. This is often the fastest way to get to a non-teleport destination, however, it must be linked to the road and the journey will consume a lot of food. If a particular destination does not have a nearby warp or nexus link, it may instead have an NHS portal link, or be close to a linked site. Most linked destinations will state that on their wiki page.

Travel is also possible without the NHS, though accurate navigation can prove difficult, as can exiting at a predictable spot.

Nether donors can also use fast travel commands within the nether, making it possible to get around quickly and safely.


Several players, most notably nosefish, have developed a series of Boat Routes throughout Freedonia. See also Freedonia by Boat.

Ice Highways

FRC own ice roads that you can use a boat to go on, which allows players to move around 30-40 m/s, much faster than other transport methods. Do warn that travelling too fast that the server cannot track players cause boats to disappear to the void. See also Project Glacier and Freedonia Road Co.
