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...

Hello BuildCraftians!

The past day, and the upcoming week will be filled with tons of fun and prizes! I'm going to start with the bad news so the good news freshens up the sadness in the air. First and foremost, today we unfortunately lost two very very wonderful staff members. One long time and the other short time. As of February 11, 2016, Both DoctaCirno and Chipjelly have resigned from their positions as Moderators. Next time you see them, give them lots of love and wish them good luck in the big world!

Next off, the Skyblock Competition is coming up This Saturday at 12:00pm EST, everyone is invited, no matter what rank you are. Just sign up (by private messaging @Miner on Skype or by forums) and show up, and you are all set! First place gets $750 and 64 dirt, second place gets $500 and 48 dirt, and third place gets $250 and 32 dirt. First place will also get the 'Event Winner' tag on the forums permanently!

Lastly,...

Hello people of BuildCraftia,

this has been an exciting sunday! First of all, BC Awards, the community held yearly show where the best players of BCSN are rewarded, was held. It was a blast to attend and a bunch of awesome people were given the exclusive BuildCraftia award. You can find more information here: http://bcsn.us/forum/index.php?threads/buildcraftia-awards-wrap-up.3463/

Additionally, as you should have noticed, we recently debated on the further plan regarding @MacMeBenny and his inactivity and misbehavior (for a lack of a better word). The general consensus of the community, expressed in the thread http://bcsn.us/forum/index.php?threads/new-server-era.3444/, has been to proceed without him so we have put the plan into action. He is now the Founder rank ingame, which is equivalent to Penguin. We thank him for all the contributions he has made in the early days of BuildCraftia, without him this server would not exist.

Furthermore,...

Good evening dear players of BuildCraftia,

in the past few months you may have noticed that the activity of Zach, also known as MacMeBenny, has dropped to what is, without exaggerating, nothing. For a while we have tolerated this, persuaded us that he would eventually come back and he just has important issues to deal with. Due to this decision, always waiting for Zach, the server has grinded to a halt. Since new year, we have decided to ignore the absence of Zach and get the server moving with games such as Domination and the new Skyblock server. It feels good to see the server go somewhere. Still, the feeling of being held back persists.

Last week Zach logged on for the first time in months for longer than 10 minutes, and we were able to discuss a few things. First of all, he transferred control over the main accounts, like the domain and the server host, to the shared email. This allows us to finally manage the server fully, even in his absence. However, we have calculated...

Now I know you all have been DYING and WAITING for this thread to be posted and, voila!
Here it is.

The BuildCraftia Staff team have come up with the BuildCraftia Competitions, which, if you don't know, it's basically a series of events done once every 2-4 weeks, picked at random. They're super fun to play, and everyone has the ability to participate in them. We now have a set plan for these competitions, and, a set of rewards!
We'd also love suggestions for games from you guys, especially minigames

GASP!
"But Kai, what do you mean by rewards!?!?!?!!"

Rewards are given to the 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place winners of each competition. The winner of such competition will get an added tag on the forums named "Event Winner" in yellow. They will also get dirt and money. THIS GOES FOR ALL EVENTS.

Okay, enough of my senseless blabbing, let's get to the good stuff.
The first ever, hosted, official BuildCraftia Competition will be on.....
Febuary 6th, 12:00pm EST!
The first...

Hello people,

I was bored so I linked creative and survivals chat together. Once factions and skyblock are done they will be connected as well. If any bugs occur, feel free to report them in the appropriate subforum.

Have fun and play some survival

Happy New Year To BuildCraftia!

It's been a wonderful year in BuildCraftia and that's all thanks to the dedicated community of players. Thank you for playing in BuildCraftia in 2015! We sure hope you continue to do so in 2016 as well. Hugs to all of you from us!

It has been an eventful year of 2015 in BuildCraftia. A lot has happened, both good and not so good. The ups and downs are the ground essentials for life. Without them there would not be something called life. The year 2015 included accusations, wins, losses, mistakes and right choices…

A lot of good friends were made but also many of our beloved ones have left their goodbyes to the server. I want to remember them with warmth and wish them an awesome New Year of 2016. Keep up with your goals in life and never let go of our dreams! Take your school seriously because it will define the rest of your life.

In the summer of 2015 I left to the Finnish Defence Forces to go through my...

There has been numerous requests to fix paintball. Now we have had time to fix some things as well as add some awesome new features! First of all, big big thanks to our awesome developer, Quicksteve for making these updates!

New update holds following new features:
  • Weapon ammo
    • Specific for each gun
    • When you die, your ammo resets
    • When you kill someone, you get more ammo
    • Kill-streaks earn you more ammo (e.g. 15, 25, 35 etc.)
    • If all players run out of ammo, the game gives everyone some of it
  • Team lives
    • New system detects the amount of players and changes the team lives accordingly
  • Kit selector
    • Due to several requests, we have added a kit selector in-game (pssst... this works on all mini-games)
  • Paint
    • When you shoot with your paintball gun, it actually paints the surroundings
  • Bugs
    • Fixed a lot of bugs
