For the second time we have decided to host a Holiday Sale! (trying to make up for the lack luster Steam holiday Sale) Last time we did a holiday sale we took $5 off of every rank, this time we are dropping the lowest donator rank and lowering the price of each rank to the price of the rank before it. Look at the list below for the price changes.
Rank Sale Price Original Price Tier 1 N/A $5.00
Tier 2 $5.00 $10.00
Tier 3 $10.00 $20.00
Tier 4 $20.00 $35.00
The sale will run from from December 23rd, 2014 through January 5th, 2015 11:59 EST. Donator ranks will be shown in front of your name on the HUB of the server and the Creative server. In addition the rewards for donating are only on the creative server. ** Please note...
Since Blaizecraft was first launched back in 2010 many changes have been made to make the use experience the best it could be. Today we would like to announce our biggest improvement yet, introducing 'The Blaizecraft Network'. All of the Blaizecraft vanilla servers are now accessible from one centralized HUB, this will allow you to more easily switch between servers, and allow you to play the servers you want to play when you want to play them. We hope this change will help you better use our servers, and more efficiently play how you want to play. Teleport on!
Its that time of year again, Holiday Season, and with that comes many great things, breaks from school, presents, and family. We here at Blaizecraft just wanted to say Happy Holidays! No matter what you are celebrating we hope it is the best it can be. And don't forget, during all that free time from school, our servers will still be up for you to play on. Shovel on!
As many of you know, we have been toying with the idea of adding a factions sever to our portfolio. Because of your strong support, we have spent the past few days putting together the best factions server we can make, and we are proud to say that factions is NOW IN BETA!!!! Since everyone wanted factions so bad, we decided to make the beta open to everyone! All you need to do is post your IGN below and say "I would like to be in beta" and we will add you as quickly as we can. If this beta is a success, we will open the server to the public with the same map that we are using for beta.
Special thanks to drunkpig14 for putting so much time in to getting this server working! Also, if you find any bugs, please post them to THIS forum post. Mine on!!
Minecraft 1.7.X - 1.8.X clients can connect to SMP and Factions server now thanks to Spigot!@!...
So, we never were able to get the server updated to 1.7.8 but that doesn't matter anymore since 1.8 came out. There will most likely be no update to 1.7.9 or 1.8 anytime soon due to a DMCA on bukkit and because many staff members have left the company. Also, the number one plugin we depend on is not updated for 1.8 yet. I can't give an estimate of how long it will take to update but hopefully all the legal issues bukkit faces will be resolved in the next few months and a new bukkit release supporting 1.8 will be out. If the plugin we are waiting on (LOGBLOCK) is not updated we will switch to a new plugin. If a new plugin is required a new map will most likely be needed which means the plots in Guest world will be wiped and Intermediate will be a completely new map. Things may change though, only time will tell.
Blaizecraft was created back in 2010 to host the best Multi-Player freebuild experience you could find. In the past 4 four years we have not only reached that goal, but we have far surpassed it. This is due to the great Staff, Players, and Community that we have built over the years. Blaizecraft is very diverse in age, race, and gender, but one thing brings us together, the Internet. Without the freedom of the Internet Blaizecraft as you know it would never have existed, there is a good chance Minecraft as you know it would not have existed. All these, and much more, are possible because of the Internet, and what is known as Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality, in its simplest form, is the right for every website/server to have the same priority a every other website does, none have more, none have less. My large ISP's want to change this though, that want to create Internet "fast" and "slow" lanes. These Internet "fast" lanes are "super highways" that large website...
In the next few days take a moment and give a nice congratulations to SomebodyButMe! SomebodyButMe is our newest Enforcer, because of his former experience on the Blaizecraft Staff he is a perfect addition to this current team. SomebodyButMe will be joining Mignoneson the Enforcing team. If you ever need anything on the server or on our website don't hesitate to ask SomebodyButMe or any of the other Blaizecraft staff. Build on!!
Take and moment and say congratulations to our two recently promoted staff members, SgtSarcasm7 and Gaspar445. SgtSarcasm, as he is known in game, is our newest Admin. Sgt is joining UnMelloCaleb and pmme in the admin position. While Gaspar445 is joining the moderating team of TWWAE and Mikis1524. If you ever need anything on the server or on our website don't hesitate to ask Gaspar or Sgt (Sgt's name is Rick Astley on blaizecraft.com) or any of the other Blaizecraft staff. Mine on!!
With permission from DrunkPig14, I post the following announcement.
A player whose name is being withheld corrupted the Blaizecraft server in the form of modded armor. Anyone who put on the armor had their player file corrupted in which they were kicked and logged out without the ability to log back on. Drunk confiscated the armor and ended up falling victim himself. He currently can't log on, but is working on fixing the server and checking for other players effected. Files need to be fixed as well. It is estimated that it may take up to an hour to be fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I know that we still have not updated to 1.7.8 yet but we are slowly getting there. I have been in school and am only finishing this coming Tuesday, so I was not able to work on the server in a while. I am currently running some tests on a different server to see how the updated plugins run and to see if there will be any problems. Some very important server plugins are not currently updated for 1.7.8 UUID's yet such as our block logging plugins. Please check Simp's post on why this update is taking so long.
-drunk I will list progress/news/updates here:
I'm guessing a new user list needs to be generated for Essentials to run correctly. This means it may be possible that all homes, things in inventory, and last position may be lost. Not 100% sure about this though. Make sure to write down all of your homes...
