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 c.bcsn.us)
Survival - Complete (Connect Using s.bcsn.us)
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...

Hello there. So I've been playing on BC and a couple times I came on catching people (no names mentioned) saying extremely rude, crude, and vulgar phrases in chat. Remember, we are a family friendly server, and while "potty mouthing" is allowed on the server, using it in an offensive phrase or abusing the word to create vulgarity is actually prohibited, despite the fact that it is not written in the rules (I beleive). Also remember that there is a borderline between joking and being rude. If someone tells you to stop doing your "jokes", that probably means that you've offended them and you should stop and not continue to act like a straight up jerk.

Also remember that we need to have a good impression on new players and not lose respect of old ones. If you're causing a scene with your diarrhea mouth, you're gonna make some people upset, and they're going to want to leave all because you had no control over what you typed. Another note is that kids of all ages play on here and...

Here's some things that I've heard in the server:

"I don't care about voting... I already have WorldEdit. And those pets... who needs those?!"
"Pft. Voting..."
"MVPs can't benefit from voting..."
"Voting is for noobs"

We have heard you: Introducing voting milestones! You'll get something special every milestone you achieve. You will of course get the regular voting benefits alongst all these new things. You can see all the voting milestones in-game with the '/milestones' command. You can also see the top voters with '/topvotes' command in-game.

Hey, I am sure many of you are aware that the player count of BuildCraftia has been rather low lately for like no apparent reason. This makes it rather hard to play the well programmed minigames like DTC and Paintball because you can never get enough people to play, and if nobody is playing on them that means a server that took time and effort to make has just gone to waste.

So, you are probably all aware of the command //vote. You simple click 1 of 6 links, follow the instructions on that link and KABLAM! You voted! The command is not simply something to let regular members of BuildCraftia get free WorldEdit, but the WorldEdit is more of a reward for those players for helping the server gain popularity. If you feel like the server has a lack of players you can complain about it all you want. That is not going to get us anymore players. Voting will make us look better and may more than likely, attract new people which probably, at least some would become members of the...

Hey guys!

Halloween is soon here and we want to celebrate it a little bit. We've thought of making a build contest! We will pick three winners and they will all get a FREE trail of their choice! Cool, eh?

Since it's Halloween, the theme will be "Halloween": surprise, surprise! Simply, create the spookiest and most awesome plot in the server! The contest will close at Sunday 2nd 9 PM GMT and the winners will be announced at Monday the 3rd.

Submit your Halloween contest plot ID down below (acquired with /plotme info) and you're in the competition. Only one build per player! Do your build alone, no groups!

Hello BCSN. As many of you have seen trying to log in, you have had some connection issues due to the hub being whitelisted. So as a result, please connect with this alternative IP

BuildCraftia Update Log #2
Fixes to DTC?! Hub?! New mini-game?! Waat?!


DTC
  • Added more spawn points to maps
No more overcrowding when you start a new game! This should make the game more awesome.
  • Edited the map “Town”
Map “Town” got a change. Cores and the spawn points were moved. This is just to prevent spawn camping and to improve overall gameplay.
  • Opened the DTC map submission thread
Yes, we are taking TWO more maps this time. The thread will stay open for two weeks (or longer if there’s a lack of maps) so you will have time to finish your unfinished maps and post them. Good luck everyone! I will be picking the best maps with rest of the staff and they will be added within a week...

Dear all

I am writing to you today to convey the true story: the facts, the truth and the resolution

Over the past year as I’m sure most of you are aware we have had many changes and problems across our network. Before Arcadia we had a moderator called MsCottonCandy. MsCottonCandy was your typical player until one day she decided to donate an extortionate amount of money towards the network ($2462 over a 5 day period) As a token of our gratitude we decided to promote her to admin.

It wasn’t until a few day or weeks later that our Owner MacMeBennyZ received a phone call from her father (Zach never posts his number anywhere online). MsCottonCandy’s father proceeded to threaten Zach unless he refunded all the money she had donated illegally using his credit card (Candy has taken her fathers credit card without his consent which is classed as theft and proceeded to donate to the server without his consent). Her father stated that he knew were Zach lived and that he would come and...
