Evening everyone

I just thought I would write this quick post to tell you about the new Name Changing feature within Minecraft!

Today, February 4th Mojang allowed Minecraft users to change their usernames. There are a few underlying worries about this that I would like to address:
  1. All banned users will remain banned - Minecraft works using a UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) system to organize it's players therefore when a player is banned they are banned using their UUID and not the username itself. If you don't understand that look at it this way the UUID is the account and the username is the username, the username can always be changed but the account cannot. Therefore don't worry about banning, its all under control!
  2. Donation ranks will remain - As said in the previous post our ranks work on a UUID system as well therefore your donations are linked to your UUID not the username itself so you will always have you rank!

Plot commands

Yes, during the change from 1.7 to 1.8 we changed the plot plugin from PlotMe to this new one. There was bunch more commands added and some of the old commands stopped working. Although, I created some aliases to the new commands, so you can use either ones. You can use either "/plot" or "/p", too. I have used "/plot" here.

Old command = New command

Adding & removing helpers
/plot add $ = /plot helpers add $
- Adds a person to your plot (they can build on it)​
/plot remove $ = /plot helpers remove $
- Removes a person from your plot (they no longer can build on it)​

Denying & undenying
/plot deny $ = /plot denied add $
- Denies a person (they cannot enter the plot)​
/plot undeny $ = /plot denied remove $
- Undenies a person (they can once again enter the plot)​

Plot clearing & resetting
/plot clear
- Clears the plot (removes everything on...​

Good evening everyone :)

So we decided to create a quick 10 question survey that we would be ever so grateful if you could carry out to help us see the areas that we need to improve in to further increase your enjoyability on the server

The survey is fully confidential so please speak the truth and in return for completing the survey you will receive a 5% off coupon for the server store

Thank you


EDIT by MacMeBenny: Survey closed.

Hey guys!

We finally updated to 1.8, after several months of brainstorming, building and plugin testing! It feels great to release something this awesome. The spawn took my many months because ever single house was made separately. With 1.8 survival gets many, many feature added, but also some features were removed. The server is in delta state, so please report any problems/issues to the staff, preferably to an administrator or an owner.

Getting started
When you join the server, you will get connected to the survival 'hub' where you can find all essential things such as server shops, pvp arena, pve arena (coming soon) and player market. You can get to the building world with "/play" command. The server will teleport you automatically to the nearest free, not-so-populated area where you can still find the basic resources for starting your survival experience! If you're not satisfied by the place, just go adventure, we don't limit that!

Also, player versus...

Dear BuildCraftia Community

I am writing to you today to inform you of our new ‘Senior Moderator’ rank which has been introduced.

This rank has been appointed to three moderators, those being comprised of 1 from the Europe region and 2 from the United States region.

I am delighted to inform you that your new senior moderators are IPROXGio for the Europe region and Th3Kn0wnM4n4t33 and Yvagary for the United States region.

Their responsibilities will mostly be behind the scenes but these members will have much more power in game so they will be able to assist you in game when no admins are online.

Thank you and have a nice day
Matty :)

So me, zach and a few others have been working on skywars! Yes. Another game!. Well, zach did most of the work, I just came up with alot of ideas :p. Anyways, skywars as many of you go is a pvp game that is half hg, half skyblock. 4-12 people spawn in a game with each having an island below them that has 1-4 chests. The chests contain armor, weapons, food, exc. The object is simple. Be the last one standing. So unlike the previous 3 minigame servers, this does not run off the current API. All of these are custom plugins made specifically for skywars. We also have a different spawn for skywars due to the complexity of servers and such. Some pictures of the spawn are shown below. 2015-01-09_22.33.21.png 2015-01-09_22.33.16.png 2015-01-09_22.33.11.png 2015-01-09_22.33.05.png 2015-01-09_22.32.58.png 2015-01-09_22.32.44.png

Hello BuildCraftia,

many people have approached me and other staff members over the past few days showing us that permissions were not working.

In this thread, please post any commands you should be able to use but can't, any features you can't use anymore etc.


Troll posts will be dealt with accordingly.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

First and foremost i would like to wish you all a very happy new year and all the best for the year ahead from all of us here at BuildCraftia.

So as some of you may have noticed we are currently in the process of updating our network to the latest version of Minecraft 1.8!

At this moment in time our friendly neighbourhood penguin developer leo is working on updating the various elements of the network. Some of these elements will take longer than others as a lot of our network is custom and will have to be update manually such as our mini games.

Below is a list of the servers and their update status

Hub - Complete
Creative - Complete (Connect Using
Survival - Complete (Connect Using
Mini-games - Incomplete

Once you are on the updated creative you will notice that...

Dear BuildCraftia Community

I am writing to you today in the run up to christmas, one week today to ask you to shed a thought for the people all around us who are not as privileged as all of us to be waking up on christmas morning to presents, some who may not even be able to access a computer like all of us here

This year millions of children across the world will be waking up without presents under their tree and us at buildCraftia want to help change that no matter how small pennies make pounds and every little helps when it comes to helping other all around us.

How are we going to help ?

Us here at BuildCraftia are going to donate 50% of all excess donations this christmas to various charities, in order to increase our donations we are going to be launching a 50% off sale this christmas to not only help all of you get that pet, trail or rank that you have been wishing for but to also increase the amount that we will donate to charity.

I thank you on behalf of everyone at...
