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...

Hey,

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...

Hey, I’m here to present yet another update for BuildCraftia. We’ve been working to improve your experience of gameplay on our Creative server. We have been making sure it is a smooth experience and added a few nifty features.

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)

1.1. Plot Biomes
The plot biome menu is also accessible by using /p biome on your plot. The menu shows you the current biome, and you are able to change the biome by...

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
[​IMG]

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.

After we added the new plot worlds yesterday - we are now successfully updated to 1.12.2 Java Version. Even though the Minecraft version doesn’t bring anything new but some bug fixes, we have worked on some updates for you.

REMEMBER! You have to log in with 1.12.2 - other game versions will not work!

Destroy The Core
There is a big update to Destroy The Core. We have revamped the kits from ground up and you can now upgrade them to get better weapons and armour et cetera.

[​IMG]

The new kits are: Default, Tank, Builder, Valkyrie, Miner and Nurse. You have the default kit by default (duh!) and you have to unlock the others with Fish.

These kits have up-gradable perks which are per kit. Go check them out by yourself!

We have done some work with voting and we think this is now clearer for new players. When you run /vote it opens a book with...

The update we’ve been hiding and keeping as a secret from you is finally here! We’re excited to announce something for our server we’ve never seen on any other server network. So without further ado, let’s get right into it!

Introducing two new plot worlds for Creative: Nether and End

The worlds are quite different from the regular plot worlds - the mood of the dimension is really present. This is something you cannot achieve in the regular world with biomes.

[​IMG]
The Nether spawn built by __Alkaline__.

The End spawn built by ItsAZZA.

The plots are themed by the dimensions and they are 101 by 101 blocks. You can use all the plot features you can in the regular plot worlds: merging, biomes… and so on.

These two worlds can be accessed via the /nether and /end commands. You can also select the world when claiming a plot (see below).
