Hey everyone,

Here's a small update on what's going on at BuildCraftia and what the very near future will introduce.

Minecraft 1.17
Minecraft 1.17 will be released June 8th and we’re getting ready to update as well. Huge change with Minecraft is happening as it’s updating to a newer version of Java. Currently, most servers use Java 8 but the new Minecraft supports Java 16. This is quite a significant jump and opens the possibilities for modern Java programming. If you are interested in what will change with this, you can check this neat article:

What does all this mean? Minecraft will get an upgrade, so to say. We hope this gives a minor boost in performance as well (fingers crossed). Of course, plugin developers have to make the update as well to comply. This should be relatively easy but...

Hey everyone,

More work has been done on the server. Please see these recent changes!

The Hub Server
Finally, it's here! This magnificent piece of art was constructed by the amazing Alkaline. This is now the default server where new players get teleported when they join using the or domains. If you want to access Creative directly, you can do so at domain.


Leather Armor Editor
This feature is probably something you have used before but now it's even better! Instead of fiddling with color codes, you can now create a set of custom color leather armor. But no worries, there's still 17 pre-made sets available for your use.


  • /dye set <(hex) | (red) (green) (blue)> : Set color of item
  • /dye give <(hex) | (red) (green) (blue)> : Give colored...

Hey everyone,

Things have been quiet in BuildCraftia but fear no more! Updates have been worked on in the background and this are taking shape slowly but surely.

We're aware that the Survival server is down at the moment and we're looking for a solution to get it up and running as soon as possible. Due to some bugs with the server billing, we're unfortunately going to rely on our backups to bring it back. We apologize for any inconveniences caused by this! All other server are running normally as of this moment.

Then to the release notes with some recent updates.

➤ Creative
Some new additions have been added to our Creative server.

» LaunchPads
Actually a proper plugin create by me, which is widely used in our Realm servers. We've added access to this awesome plugin on our Creative server and we can't wait to see what kind of features you can come up with them!

Basically, launch pads are exactly what the name says. Set up with a pressure plate and a sign, you can...

Hey everyone,

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...
