Hey, it's been a long while since we've updated the server here on the Forums.

Introducing NoteBlockTuner™
NoteBlockTuner™ is a handy tool for changing noteblock notes. You simply shift right click a noteblock and a tuning menu is opened. Here you can select the note you want to apply to the noteblock. First click selects the sound and plays it for you and the second one applies it. You can get NoteBlockTuner™ with a single vote for 1 hour or permanently with 50 Reputation. This feature works only on Survival at the moment.

Introducing Potion Menu & Command
This is probably one of the most extensive feature yet on Polarbear plugin, totaling with almost 500 lines of code. Potion menu gives you an easy access to almost all the Minecraft potion effects and it lets you control the effects (duration and power). This also adds the...

There has been a lot of talk recently about the BCAwards, and more questions have been brought up about it in the past week than there has been in the past year and a half of my absence. However, i hope i can answer any questions you guys have regarding the information enlisted in the thread.

I've taken into consideration all of the banter that has occurred recently regarding the event and have put it into my mind to host one final awards show, along with NapkinDabber. The BCAwards was a huge hit the first and second year it was hosted. Though, there has always been controversies regarding the award show. I'm going to ensure that this year that will not occur and that I can bring the community a brand new experience with a balanced voting/nomination system and create memories that can last. But remember, the awards show is a community event, meaning every vote...

The Buildcraftia build competitions are back!

Build competitions have been absent for some time now, but since the community
showed interest in holding new contests we decided to bring them back.
(Thank you Napkin for your continued support!)

Now for these contests to work we need at least 5 entries, information on how to enter down below.

You can apply until the first of July!
The contest will close on July 15.

Our first build competition of 2018 starts off simple with a "STORE" theme!
Whether it's a grocery store a shoe store or even a sushi store,
let your eye for detail show in this build competition.

For this contest we will allow pre-made plot themes, not as a prerequisite but optional.


We have some new and some old prizes returning for this competition.

First of all we are rewarding the winner with a 10$ coupon code to be spent on...

Hello everyone!
I'm going to cut right to the chase on this one because I'm simply too tired to be writing a full fledged thread for this.

Congratulations to our new Helpers: jeremy333, WordShultz, Masterbuild2k17!
On top of that, since Mr. Alkaline has a certain history of being a staff member, the BuildCraftia Staff Team is happy to announce the addition of Alkaline as our newest Moderator!

Either way, congratulations to these 4 guys. Be sure to have fun as staff members!

Thank you!
Have a nice day on BuildCraftia.

Hello everyone, I'll see if I can cut to the chase with this one.

After a tad bit of deliberating, the entire staff team have decided to open our doors to a few more members. This time around, we will be hoping to welcome 3 new staff members.
However, we are bringing back the old rank of Helper, a trial session of the staff life, until you feel ready and accustomed to the rigor of being a staff member here on BuildCraftia.

Moderating and helping out the server is amazing and an honor, and of course it's a whole lot of fun with your fellow staff members and the rest of the community. Yes, being a staff member requires a certain level of maturity, patience and a variety of other factors. Don't forget that you are an example to the community and especially new players, even if you are not chosen this time around. If you think you fit the capabilities for being a staff member, I definitely encourage you to apply, there is no penalty for applying.

Applications will...

The server has got more new players lately than in a long time and the need for staff members is growing. I want to quote Napkin’s post from the forums this morning:

“I remember when I was a gray player. Everyone does. Cause that's your default rank upon joining the server..... Something I notice when new players join is that they are more likely to respond to a staff member that welcomes them as opposed to another member. With big bold names separating the staff ranks from the other ranks, it’s easy for new players to determine who's who almost immediately. A staff member can easily be confided with, as they represent safety, trust, and maturity, while normal members (especially donators) cannot be trusted by these new players as easily because they do not have a set of principles to follow like a staff member does. I just feel as though a staff member who takes the proper steps of interacting with a new player will help them settle in easier and potentially stay for awhile...

Content: 1. Plot Settings Menu, 2. Banner Menu, 3. Plot Themes, 4. Other Changes

1. Plot Settings
Some of you may remember the plot settings menu (/plot settings). It lets you change your plot’s settings such as the biome, music, gamemode and weather. We have spend some time re-coding the whole thing and adding some new features.

Settings main menu.

With the new menu, you’re able to change:
  • Gamemode
  • Biome
  • Time
  • Weather
  • Music
  • Plot variables (see below)

Hey everyone,

It’s finally time for another update, the first major one this year. We have so many new features coming up your way, so you’d better keep your eyes peeled.

Introducing plot themes

Screenshot of the savanna plot theme

We know it’s a hassle trying to get started with your plot: the terrain is a piece of a flat grass field. We came up with a solution: plot themes.

What are plot themes?
Plot themes are pre-made terrain that gets applied to your plot upon claiming. These are easy to access with the brand new /plot auto menu. At the moment, this is the only way to get a theme for your plot. We have plans to release a version of the plot theme menu, which lets you change the theme after claiming the plot.
