Edited Maps
Some of the maps were edited to enhance the gameplay.

Avalanche
Avalanche has received a new look but the main features are still in place. The map is now more lush with trees and bushes. The roads also received an ice cover to make your journey around the map faster. Spawns and the mountain also received a visual update.

Columbia
  • The cores were way too close to the spawn, so they were moved higher up.
  • The spawns received a visual update....

Hey,

Today we are bringing you somewhat sad news. You may have noticed a decrease in development speed lately. Our developer, Leo, and myself are really busy in real life and maintaining and developing the server has gotten harder and harder for us. It feels like there is no more free time after our jobs and real life tasks.

We were thinking about shutting down the server, but that didn’t seem like an option. We also thought about bringing back Arcadia to help make development faster and more organized, but that didn't seem right either. Not after everything that did to us. We love the community and the dedication our players are putting into the server. We have been thinking about solutions to this problem and have finally come up with a solution.

As of this date, we have decided to drop of Paintball from our list of development. This was a really hard decision for us two to make. We simply do not have time to develop another minigame because everything else is taking so much...

We have received a lot of good feedback about our Destroy The Core. If did leave your answers, thank you so much! You have helped us to improve our games and experience overall.

We are going to take an action to fix some of the general issues. Some of the maps are also going to receive a visual update in the near future.

There were some general concerns and questions we want to answer here.

The maps are too big!
We are aware of this problem and there is only one reason for this: we do not have enough players for a well-balanced and intriguing game on these bigger maps. The minimum player amount is there for a reason. Of course, staff is always ready to start the game for you, if the limit is not reached, and you want to play.

Some of the cores are too close to the spawn
Yes, we have noticed the same problem and we are working on it. As some maps are getting a visual update, we are updating the core locations in the maps where needed.

We need more maps!!1!...

Hey,

It’s been quite a while since our last update. Here is some important news and things from the past couple of weeks to a month.

BUILDCRAFTIA MAPS
What is it, though? It’s a map of our server. At the moment, we have rendered the Survival world, and you are able to check it out at: https://penguin.bcsn.us/render/

We are planning to render Creative soon, so stay tuned for that. Unfortunately, for the sheer size of the map, we are only able to do around 10,000 blocks or so around Creative spawn. We are thinking to update the maps once a week and adding waypoints for all warps.

You are able to zoom in really close, too!...

Hey,

we have released the new Survival spawn as well as some other minor changes to the game-play.

General
We thought it would be wise to put everything in one place. The new spawn holds the general information about the server, the player market as well as the admin shops. You can no longer access to old spawn, as it has been unloaded from the server. If you had a shop in the old market, a refund of $5,000 should have been added to your balance.

Player Market
The new market holds 80 shop slots, so there’s plenty of space. The new shops are slightly smaller than the old ones, hence their reduced price at $4,000. The good spots are taken fast, so be sure to get yours now!

Admin Shops
We have changed the admin shops to be less overpowered. There is fewer shops than before, but you can now buy some new items such as elytras and shulker boxes. More information about admin shops and their contents will be added soon.

About Making Money
We’ve seen some...

We have changed how voting works!

When you vote on 4 VOTING SITES you will receive the following:
  • FULL ACCESS WorldEdit for three hours
  • 10 Reputation
  • 200 Fish
You will get WorldEdit perks with Reputation as well. This way you will have access to them permanently and around the clock, not just three hours a day.

Thanks for reading, and have an awesome day at BuildCraftia!

Hey guys, I am here to announce a few things!

Survival Update

I am here to announce that the Survival server will receive a new spawn really soon! With the new spawn, some of the admin shops are going to change. A new player marketplace will be announced as well. We are going to delete the current marketplace and replace it with this new one.

We wanted to announce this beforehand, so you have time to empty your shop before this transformation happens. Please take everything you need from your shop, since these will be deleted after the update, and no backups will be kept. Please also remember to break the Chest Shop signs to get your money back. The price of the shop will be added to your account, so make sure the sign in front of your shop has your name in it, otherwise the refund will go to waste. These refunds will be done just before the new spawn is introduced. No refunds will be made after that date.

The Survival new spawn, and marketplace will be released...

Reputation Update

Hey guys, it’s finally here! We have cleaned all the wrapping paper that the penguin servants left after them and the server is now ready for all of you!

Yes, we know this update has been a long time coming, but are finally here to announce our Reputation Update to BuildCraftia Network. We haven’t kept you waiting for nothing since this is no doubt the biggest update ever in the history of BuildCraftia.

This update brings some great features to our server, as well as it makes our server completely compliant for Mojang EULA. If you want to read more about Mojang’s EULA, you can do so here and here.

This update is huge and we simply cannot fit this in one single thread. This one is going to be more of an update log, and we’ll link the threads explaining features in more detail in here.

It has come time to make our donation to Doctors Without Borders. Thank you for your incredible support for the charity and our server. Together we managed to raise $66 to charity. I'm going to make it a $100 by donating the missing $34 from my personal funds.

Thank you for everyone donating. I think we gave a little help to make the world a better place. Thank you!

And, for all the conspiracy theorists:
