Long time no see! As you all know, the network doesn't have as many players as it used to have. For this reason there haven't been any income for the last 4 months. But since I've decided that the network will continue to run as long as there's money on the PayPal account it will continue to run. I've also cut a lot of costs the recent week, so the network will be fine for at least another half year + more if there's donations as usual, unless someone decides to chargeback. Keep that in mind, so don't donate recklessly.

I'd also like to thank SockOMG and ItzzAdrian for taking over as owners. If they wouldn't have taken over, the network would have shut down in August. That's because I'm too busy learning programming (I've come quite a bit) and I have lost the interest for Minecraft. SockOMG and ItzzAdrian have done a great job managing the staff, helping the players and checking reports. But they're a bit retarded, so they can't managing plugins, use Linux and so on. Therefore they've wanted me to give permission to the mod ItzzCookiee, who'll be recognized as a developer (even if he's technically a sys-admin). He'll manage the plugins, configurations and so on. He also have plans on adding new servers (minigames), so look forward to that.

MINER: Yes, I've added a coinhive miner on the website in order to tackle the budget problem. I consider it morally wrong and hate when websites utilize users CPU (processor) without notifying them. Which is why there'll be a pop-up every time you visit the website asking for permissions to use a % of your processor. You can either deny or allow this. If you don't want to see the pop-up I'd recommend you to download "uBlock origin" and block it by clicking uBlock origin > Enter element mode picker > Selecting the pop-up. If you however want to support the network without giving money, allow the miner to mine. If you keep the computer on without using it it's just to open the site and let it mine. If you can't see the pop-up, disable your adblock for this website (we don't have any google spying or ads).

The network files moved to a much cheaper dedicated server with a good processor, but less ram and storage. You can see the specs down below from the neofetch command. All servers will continue to run as usual. Except for Towny which have been deleted due to no one playing on it. Fun fact, the server is now running on Debian instead of CentOS since I'm using Ubuntu as my main desktop (it's more familiar to use command-wise).

UPDATE: Here's the towny world files compressed available for download

Network will be down for some hours today, I'll make a post about why later today. No it's not shutting down.

OBS
: It's possible that posts/threads you create will disappear once the network have been moved. Password/account changes may also be reversed. (So don't make account changes, if you make posts save them in a word document)
Happy new year! To start the year off, we have added a GUI type auction house to Robbers and Skyblock! This auction house is a little different from the one in Prison, Factions, and Towny. Instead of only being able to sell one item at a time, multiple people can sell multiple items at a time and you can buy the items even when the seller is not online.

Use /ah help for a list of all the commands.

To sell something in the auction house put the desired item in your hand and use /ah sell (price)
To view your item and buy other peoples items use /ah

[​IMG]

Your item will stay up i the auction house for 2 days, if no one has bought it, it will be moved to /ah expired
To cancel your item in the auction house use /ah selling and click on it

Also almost anyone who was denied for staff in 2017 will have another chance in 2018!
Keep checking this page as we add new changes!
Happy Holidays! We hope everyone is having a great holiday season and are excited for what this new year is going to bring Powercraft. We will host drop parties this Saturday, December 24th in PvP, Factions, Prison, Skyblock, and Robbers. For the building contest in Creative, I know I mentioned it in the discord group announcements but to go more in depth, the theme is Winter. Every year for the winter build contest everyone builds Christmas themed builds which are beautiful but I want to mix it up a little. Also since the only “winter” plot in spawn is an ice thing. I’m aware many of you have already started building it, you’re allowed to submit something Christmasy since most of the world connects winter with Christmas. But you’ll have a better chance of winning it’s more wintery than Christmasy. The last day of building will be the 24th and results should be out the 25th of December. The winner will receive a voucher to the webstore (which we suggest you hold onto in case of future additions to the store.) There will be a clock to the left which will display the time we’re going off of to start the drops. Happy Holidays!

Drop Parties 24th of December [+0 GMT]

PvP: 16:00
Factions: 16:30
Prison: 17:00
Skyblock: 17:30
Robbers: 18:00

Also: We have listened to your suggestions and after much convincing and planning we have found a way to bring many of your suggestions into something we can and will be adding to Powercraft in the near future. Before it was very hard to add things because of our limited knowledge on servers but thankfully that is no longer an issue. Stay tuned, and keep making forums and support threads for suggestions on what you want to see in Powercraft!
Happy Holidays! Every year around we take the time to appreciate our amazing staff and all the hard work they do to keep the server safe and strong. But it's truly the players who make Powercraft, without you guys we wouldn't be able to stay up. This year we want to thank the players by removing any punishment whether it’s a warn, mute, or ban that you got before January 1, 2017. To get your punishments removed follow these steps

Go to: www.powercraft.me/appeal/
Select: Create New Thread In the title put: Punishment Removal: (your current username)

NOTE: You do not need a website account to make the ban/mute appeal.
You must create the appeal to get your punishments removed, please don’t ask us in game.
If you are currently banned or muted and that ban or mute is from 2016 your chances of getting all your punishments removed is unlikely but please make an appeal anyways since we're giving some players second chances if they were banned on the old server.
Also please be patient there's a lot of you and we'll get to you as soon as we can.

As many of you know ItzzAdrian and I (SockOMG) are now the co-owners of Powercraft! But that won’t prevent us from doing the annual Halloween drop party! This year we’re going to do something a little different. There will be 3 smaller Creative contest builds on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday leading up to the big drop parties on October 27th as well as a larger building contest in Creative. The large Creative building contest’s theme will be Haunted House! You have from now until October 30th to build it (you may build in a group) and the results will be out on October 31st .To enter the Bullding contest comment your current Username and Plot ID below. (To find your plot ID stand in your plot and do /p info it's at the top.) The smaller ones we’ll announce the theme that day, basically a speed build. The winners will receive a voucher for the store! As you can see one of the times for the speed build is very early so all the players in the Australia time zones will be able to participate in an event for once. (Sorry California/Alaska) A clock has been added to the top left of the home page that should be in GMT +0. If you have any ideas for what should be dropped at the various drop parties please comment below.
Happy Halloweeeeen!

New cops and robbers map released! It's almost exactly the same as the original cops and robbers map which people have been wanting for so long. The server have reseted the gangs, money, stats and other data. But otherwise it's pretty much the same with guns, ranks and so on as before. Also, now there are offices (plots) for in-game ranks. If you still want to visit the old map you can go to it with "/server oldrobbers".

[​IMG]

I planned on making more changes such as adding more guns, adding more custom enchantments, changing the kits and so on. But due to personal reasons I'm unable to do so. I'll also continue to be away for a while due to these personal reasons. From now on the administrators SockOMG and ItzzAdrian will have OP and file access.
Here's the top fifteen voters for this month! Every month the five top voters receives a $30 USD coupon while the other ten top voters receives a $20 USD coupon. If you're one of the winners read the message you received from Johandrex in your messages. If you haven't registered and joined the website you'll be unable to claim your prize, follow this tutorial in order to join our website. Do you want to become one of the top voters next month? Then vote on all four links every day for one month.

NOTE! The voting contests are cancelled.
