I’m going to be completely honest. The server bills are getting a bit expensive. No, the prices haven’t changed. It is just a matter of me wanting to spend less money so I can put it to other things. I’ve sort of just kept it a secret in the past, but I will me flat out. The server costs a little over $7 a month. This includes the server itself, domain & website, and the dedicated server port (so you don’t need to enter a number after the IP). I will still put a little of my money towards the server if need be, but I would like to start getting donations to help me out. If you cannot donate, I understand. Please do not feel obligated. But if you would like to help (and get some cool perks) donations are very appreciated. I am also open to adding more perks to donor ranks, message me if you have any suggestions (nothing too overpowered).
Thanks, have a nice day!
Happy 4th of July to all you in the United States! To celebrate, everyone may use /kit firework! And come to spawn to see the amazing firework display, and drinks on the house!
After 4 hours of pure frustration, the server is finally updated to 1.6. Some plugins are not updated yet, and YES there will be bugs. Do not take advantage of any bugs, report them. Currently the only world open is the survival world. Enjoy!
So I got a few things to talk about, so I’m gonna put it all in one post.
Majority of people have voted for the map to be reset for the 1.6 update. I have not decided yet, but I think we will also reset the PVP world. Reason being is because if we don’t, we run the risk of everybody bringing their survival inventories over to the PVP world so they can bring it into the new map. If you have any feedback on that, please let me know while I’m online the server
So 1.6 is coming soon! I am going to completely rebuild BlueCraft from the ground up. We will be starting with a Bukkit fork called Spigot. It is designed to make servers run with less lag. So it may take some time for me to get BlueCraft ready for the 1.6 update. So we will probably still be running 1.5.1 for around a week after 1.6 releases. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We are open for applications! Read more about that here!
That’s about all! Have a nice weekend!
I want to know what you’d think about a map reset. We have had this map since 1.4.7, and I think it is time for a change. And with 1.6 coming, it will allow us to take advantage of all the features. It will also solve some of the lag issues. Cast your vote below. If you have any questions message or email me.
Should we reset the map for 1.6?
We now support Bitcoin payments in the BlueCraft store. If you are not familiar with Bitcoin, it is an online currency. But unlike most world currency, there is no central government, and works on peer-to-peer payments. Of course, we still accept PayPal, since that’s what is most common.
Now that the website is up and working pretty well, the only big thing I have to do is implement the new minigames. But I am looking for some suggestions for what I should add. If you have an idea, please submit it to the “suggestions” forum.
I’ve decided to make a few changes to BlueCraft, that will take effect soon. People will no longer be required to sign up on the website to do most things. People who are not registered will still be called “Visitor”, and site members will still be called “Member”. The only thing that Visitors cannot do is enter the creative world. Reason for that is pretty obvious.
Welcome to our new site!
This site has been a project of mine for over the past 6 months, and it is finally ready! We are now going to be using this site, instead of our old Enjin site. This has more flexibility, and a lot cheaper to maintain. It has many of the basic features that the old site had, such as forums, PMS, friends, etc, so it shouldn’t be too different.
Can I use my Enjin account on this site?
No, you will have to create a new one.
Will the site auto promote me to member when I join?
I haven’t gotten that completely working yet, so until then I will do it manually
Wait, how do we donate? Wasn’t that built into Enjin?
We have switched from the built in Enjin shop to BuyCraft.
Found a bug! Help!
Site will probably be a little buggy for the next week. Please post it under the “Questions” section of the forums, or email email@example.com
What will happen to the old site?
The old site will redirect to this site.
I hope you all enjoy the new site! Have a nice weekend everybody!
