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!



Maps

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!

1.9

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

[​IMG]

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.

This...

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...

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!
