Hey guys!

Yes, you read correctly, the staff application/nomination process has begun once again! A few things have changed since our last application process, so read carefully and be sure to make note of the changes that have been made.

We are looking for individuals willing to donate their own free time to the server, and who are able to cooperate both with other staff members and with the community to come to conclusions. They need to be honest, hardworking, and have good problem-solving abilities.

Before all you beautiful people go to make your mod apps, the following changes have been made to the prerequisites that need to be met in order for your application to be considered, and how the applications will be considered.

- All applicants have to have been on the server for at least three months in order to be considered.

- There is no specific age limit for the applications this time; the quality of both the applicant and the application will be...

I just got notified about yesterday's events on the survival server.

I am deeply worried about the community's team spirit, if you are raiding each other's builds just because they haven't claimed it and just to obtain money. I am not pointing fingers at any individuals here. I am also aware of our survival rules, that raiding and destroying is allowed if one's build isn't claimed. Our rules also state that using common sense is allowed, and recommendable.

We are going to update survival rules to accommodate such events:

“One may demolish and raid (collect resources from chests and builds) a base if it's not claimed by the player. However, if a build is seemingly part of one's build, you are not allowed to do as described. Seemingly, means a part of a house, building or any structure. If there is space between the claim and the structure, such as a player made road, bridge or terrain, you have the rights to raid that build. Survival server is not Factions, but a...

Hello everyone!

In case you haven’t caught the drift yet, we have officially updated the creative server to 1.10! This update has been long awaited on the server. There may be some issues or bugs, so please remain patient and notify a staff member if you find any!

Not only will the creative server be updated, but the survival server will be updated too! I know many of you are fearing the loss of all your builds on survival… but do not worry! The survival map will NOT BE RESET! Creative will also not be reset! So all your builds will remain intact!

And finally, for those of you wondering about our minigames servers, their updates will be coming eventually, but they will take longer than creative or survival due to their uniqueness. They will be updated as soon as possible (except for paintball, which will be released in like 200k years)!

Thank you for taking the time to read this quick announcement, and have an awesome day!


PS: Thanks for...

Hey there,

we want to address questions about Mojang EULA and the latest acts they have taken to enforce it. Please read this thread carefully as it contains important information about the server.

Mojang EULA

Mojang, the creators of Minecraft, have an end user license agreement (EULA) that all players and server owners agree to when signing up for the game. More about EULA can be found here and here.

Lately, Mojang has taken up enforcing this EULA full force in making sure that server owners and account holders are not violating any part of it. They have created a server blacklist, which already consist of over 40 servers violating their EULA. Access to those servers is blocked until they decide to comply with the agreement.

BuildCraftia is not listed in there, and we never want to get there. Therefore, we are...

Hey guys,

this will be a short one as I have to go to bed soon.

Video Tutorials

@AZZA has been starting to release tutorials on his channel, starting with an awesome tutorial on how to build one of these awesome looking medieval houses you see on his builds yourself!


We're currently in the process of updating like ALL the maps. We're almost done with DTC and we'll be starting the other game modes on Monday. Make sure to check them out, to encourage playing we're leaving the fish multiplier on 2x for the rest of the week!


There has been good progress for 1.9. A few more plugins have updated and we're only waiting for about three mission critical ones. Another news that 1.9 has brought upon us is that they are now blocking servers which violate the EULA; we are hopefully small enough to stay under the radar. We're also working on making the server EULA...

Aaaand they are back. These weekly announcements will tell you what's going on. Anyway, lets jump right in and get you update to speed!

PrivateWorlds Server


There hasn't been much news about the planned PrivateWorlds server. This is because we're busy working on it! Up there you can see a sneak peek of the planned spawn. Some features that will probably/maybe be a thing:
  • extremely fast W.E.: literally edit a few million blocks per second
  • all WorldEdit commands
  • VoxelSniper
  • command blocks
  • instant worlds: no longer do you have to wait for the lazy supreme overlord, you can create and delete your worlds in a matter of seconds
  • worlds are just infinite plots now: (Almost) all commands will work as you'd expect them to, minus a few ones that don't make sense on such a big plot
  • more possibilites with worlds: superflat, amplified, custom preset, own world?: no problemo
  • want to play an adventure map with your...

Let's get straight to it: we had so many brilliant applications this term, and we had a very tough job deciding on who should've been given mod - the staff talked for literally hours, debating back and forth, and we almost reached a stalemate about it. That's how close it was this year.

Congratulations to our new Moderators! -

  • RazerH
  • Dusty
  • Gleba
Your new moderator ranks will be given to you later in the day, and you will be added to our relevant staff communication channels. ... (*cough* Skype *cough*).

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate every single one of you that applied. The election was very close, and we took the election into account massively when we were discussing potential staff. We appreciate the work you all put in to making applications, and we value your contribution to the server's life.

Over the past few days, several users have been writing up application forms to become staff members. I'd like to thank everyone who put their time & effort into making an application; I'm sure we can all agree the applications were of a very high standard this year!

The time for posting applications has passed, but that means the time for voting is only just beginning. You have until Saturday 26th March 2016 to cast your vote!

Votes cast past midnight GMT (running into Sunday) will not be counted.

When voting, keep these thoughts in mind:

  • Choose candidates who you think will suit the job best: not the candidates who you may be best friends with.
  • These staff members will be entrusted with the tools necessary to keep this server enjoyable & safe: think about who you would respect, trust and support as a staff member.
  • Votes will be cast on a 'One Member, One Vote' basis....

Hello all!

As I'm sure you've noticed, we're planning on once again opening up our staff application process. Please read through this thread carefully as I'll be explaining how we are going to be doing things this time around.

BuildCraftia needs talented, friendly & committed individuals to join our staff team. Potential staff members need to be loyal, hard-working, able to solve problems independently and within a group, offer advice and help to users who need it, connect on personal levels with our community, come online regularly, act in a mature manner when necessary, but also enjoy having laughs and good times to help create the positive atmosphere...

Wow okay, let me just start of by saying it’s been one heck of a year as a staff member and honestly I’ve loved every moment. From that opening sentence I think it’s pretty clear where this is going, yes I’m leaving the BuildCraftia Staff team. (!!!!!)

I’ve been thinking about it all for a while and I was originally leaving on my birthday so I’d remember for the rest of my life all the memories. That was the 31st of January but obviously I didn’t quite leave or even make a hint or anything. Throughout the past year I’ve been staff and past what, 3 years(?) that I’ve been apart of BC a lot of amazing things have happened. I’ve made some pretty chill friends and had some real rants at people but all in all I wouldn’t want to forget it for the world, everyone on BC I feel are all part of one family. Even though some of us argue a lot *cough* word and epik *cough* we still come together for different things and celebrate each other’s skills like at the BCAwards.

I don’t really have...
