His prize is a his design being put around the spawn to replace the placeholders, he also get a few copies to use for himself. Other prizes include:

Since funding for the server rely mainly on donations which are very unpredictable, we've decided to launch a patreon. This will allow us to more easily fund projects for the server, hardware malfunction replacements or upgrades.

Being a patreon is completely optional but it's a great way to show that you care for the server and wish for it to remain far into the future!

Headline
There are perks similar to how donator stuff work but it's all cosmetical things and if you cancel your pledge you will simply lose the specific perks with no negative effect to it. You can pledge either toward the already existing levels or a custom amount, even if you select a custom amount you'll still be eligible for the level you match.

There's much more to read on the patreon page, please click the image below to pay a visit and continue being awesome~!

Support us on patreon!

Headline
The event has ended and there will be a poll or such soon to decide your favorite!

This is a notification about two upcoming events, there will be more info and how to enter on each of them in a few days!

rar As you've noticed the banners around the spawn has always had this boring black placeholder banner, I believe that should change. There's going to be a competition about creating a new banner for the spawn, it should preferably not be something just taken from somewhere else.

However, since it doesn't technically need to be built ingme you're not limited by the 6 vanilla layers but instead the commandbased 16 layers.

You can use something such as http://www.needcoolshoes.com/banner to create designs online. (Just remember to share the link)

There is no specific theme other than preferably not a stolen design from elsewhere, you can already start to work on something and just save the link and submit it using the form that will appear this coming week. There will of course be a notifcation when such happens in the server and on the website.

Headline
rar
There is also going to be a event further ahead where players will be able to enter a statue building competition for the spawn where they'll be given a theme.

And the best statue will be voted on by a selected amount of players and then put in the statue location of the spawnarea. There will be a notification on the server when you'll be able to sign up interest for the competition but expect something within the coming week.

What was that long downtime about? It was due to an insanely slow convert feature of a particular plugin that took way longer than expected.

Inventory change
There's been a change in what plugin manage the inventory, if you have any missing items after the long downtime please report it.

Grahf is disabled
Due to low popularity Grahf (Lawless) is disabled for the meantime, it may be deleted in near future.

Updated spawn
The spawn has been updated but it's not completely finished, it's just to make it look a bit nicer around the area.

As many have noticed even by the last newspost I've been very inactive lately and very few things have been done on the server.

The main reason also as mentioned before has been studies but I've also been and still is quite heavily depressed, exams kinda upcoming with no real expectation of how things will go.

Just want to kinda say that you won't see me much around until these exams are done which can be tops 3 weeks if I have to redo any of them and hopefully then my depression will start to calm down as well.

And yes, this also means that any donator perks or whatever are kinda delayed at the same time, it's more stressful than one think to deal with them under this state. But they will be finished once things have calmed down.

Do you guys remember me? You know, Baku?

Well yeah, long time without any notice or progress on things, studies took a lot of my time as well with some game releases.

At least I can announce that everyone who had progressed to the most recent updated list have been accepted to become mods however there may be one or two people removed if they've not shown any activity the latest month. There will be a further annoncement with an exact list of accepted people.

None is being added as a mod right as of now but there will be some information that has to be finished and handed out then a trial period, under this trial period you can both lose your status completely (if you do a bad job) or progress to getting a proper position.

There's been one more update with moderator stuff, not with adding new right now but clearing up and removing a large chunk of mods. Many which you've probably never seen online... since plenty haven't been online over a year.

Removed mods are as follows below:
- AgerraTrel
- Vectrometer
- Seby999
- Moukou
- Laria_D2
- Diesel_Dragon
- Zadd
- Syghost

If you're anyone on this list you can contact Baku if you think you've been falsely removed. Also not that these people may still have their italic name for now but that will be updated later.

The more proper mod update is still ongoing.

There's been plenty of delays relating moderators, the main reason is because I don't just want to add anyone. I've not had enough time to consider and look through why anyone should be really well matched for being a mod and that stuff.

However, note clearly that this list only shows people who are approved for further validation. Being on this list does not confirm you've gotten a spot but it also tells that if your name is not in it you've been crossed for one or multiple reasons.

When I actually decide which ones will stay I am not really sure... I want to do it quickly but also not too quick.

Also, we still lack some reserve funding to fix this issue relating hardware issues which since the latest week have luckely not hit the server so if you wish to donate this is a great time to~

Uhm... Yeah. There's no good answer really to why mod applications haven't been processed and such. But there will be a first announcment at 1st of July relating what people have been accepted but they will not be added as actual mods until a later date.

Also, you may have noticed the server having a few random downtimes that last from some hour to multiple hours... We're having hardware issues again relating RAM corruption... again >.> And me studying and during summer having no extra job or such I get no income until start of september so if there's any major breakdown I have to rely on the userbase of the server for contributions. So if the server goes black, it will come back up in a couple of hours, just a heads up x.x

Ohey! It's been a while since I actually made a newspost or gave any information about upcoming things so this newspost will go through everything that will be coming soon!

Headline
As a lot of you know 1.8 added a lot of new terrain generation and a couple of changes and I decided I would create a new default world which I've worked on for a while. However while it's not finished it's still going to be released but as a closed off state and slowly open up more and more by time (mostly just spawn).

This means that Neith will no longer be the default spawn world but it will still remain, Persephone which is the oldest world will eventually be erased though. Anyone having a build in Persephone will be able to request it to be imported over onto a newer world without even having to be a donator.

This change is mainly due to how cluttered Neith feels currently and also to adapt so the whole world have 1.8 features :3

Headline
Finally! Is that something you may say in response to this message?

Together with the release of the new world (actually a few days after) the mod application form will be opened up, there will be a couple of requirements listed in the form itself but what mostly matter is that you're someone that enjoy doing things for the community and regulary help people with a positive attitude.

There's also a chance that if plenty people apply will result in me creating a poll and let users on the server themselves vote on people that I find having the requirements for being a mod.

Headline
Yep! An actual schedule for once with an ETA for everything upcoming.

April
14th - Release of 1.8 world
17th - Import requests from Persephone -> Newer world opened
20th - Moderator applications opened

May
10th - Moderator applications closed
12th - Persephone deletion
18th - Moderator applications processed

It's now considered safe to change your name, Lockette will now lookup your name history and automatically change the name on your chest to your current one. It's not sure however how long the Mojang's api give history on namechanges so please access all your doors and chests to update all the locks!

Homes should also now be automatically transferred.

The only remaining issue is the one where you lose your nickname and colors you had applied to your name but it doesn't change anything relating your donation status. Just ask an admin to reapply it!

As some of you know, you're now able to officially change your username once every 30 days but there's currently a backside to it, one that's quite important that you take into consideration before you change your name.

All your lockette chests will become unavailable, at least that is what it seems even though it supposedly has gotten a uuid support now. I need to research more into this particular one myself.

Another issue is that you'll lose access to your homes but they're not lost just not assigned to your username anymore, there's a fix for this as in updated plugin version but for some odd reason there's an odd error that I am not alone to have relating that version so it has to wait a bit.

So please, if you consider changing your username, make sure to unlock chests or at least add your new planned name onto the lock BEFORE you change your name, for homes the only thing you can do right now is logout where you want yourself to login at and also do /homelist and write down names and coords for existing homes.

There's a third minor thing as well, if you change your name you'll lose your colored name & nick as it's tied to username not uuid. But this is easy to update and fix, just tell an admin whatever colors you want to have reapplied.

So take caution and preferably get the desired name you want on an alt character if you're able to in the meantime.

UPDATE!:
Relating the Lockette signs, you need to open any door, chest or rightclick on the signs at least once before you change your username, otherwise no uuid apply to it.

As 1.8 is closing up now and will be rolled out very shortly (or already have when you read this) I have a small FAQ that answers questions I often get. Some applies to when 1.8 is actually applied and others just in general.

Will there be a 1.8 world?
The way minecraft works is that any previously generated chunks stays the same but any new chunks generated will be based off the new generation so technically even the oldest worlds do support 1.8 blocks and such but you have to travel to a nongenerated chunk to make it generate one.

On the other hand there will be a dedicated new main world for 1.8 whenever it's finished, hopefully around christmas time which will replace the old spawn and also set the current spawn world Neith as a secondary world.

Does this mean there will be resets?
Yes and no, there will be no resets of any main world exception being Persephone which is the oldest one that will be removed completely. On F-craft we don't reset any of the main worlds, we kinda follow a keep 3 world structure where any new added main world gets placed at first each time.

Currently the structure being Neith-Ghaleon-Persephone which will end up as UndefinedName-Neith-Ghaleon whenever the new 1.8 world gets released.

If there is enough requests to also reset either the Creative or Grahf world such may be done however.

I live in Persephone! Will my stuff be deleted?
Even though the world gets removed it's not deleted forever, if you have any coords or such saved buildings can still be extracted from it and imported over to a more current world. And you can also request such moves before Persephone is removed currently even as it's at the ”flagged for deletion” step which allow anyone who made stuff there in the past to get their stuff moved over even without a donation.

X thing doesn't work properly!
As 1.8 is quite new when it comes to the non-vanilla server stage there will be some bugs in the beginning, some may be related to server stuff and other to plugins. Please post and report any issues on the forums.

Lockette is all derp!
It's both derp and not derp, due to how 1.8 handles signs compared to 1.7 all [ and ] brackets have been removed (but will be there on newly made signs). This did mean that all chests locked got unlocked but thanks to some recoding of the plugin they're still locked and safe, but if you have an old chest with a Everyone or Timer tag you'll have to remake it.

Previously made double doors also have to be rebuilt, their old bug with derping at opening is fixed however.

Edit (22:15):
It seems to mostly run fine now as things have been on for a while, some people have mentioned problems with the 1.8 client but that's more related to the client itself rather than server. There's however some notable instability and sometimes spikes of lag mostly due to animals or monsters so please try to refrain from mob farming for the moment.

If the issue continue for an extended amount of time mobs will be disabled until a solution is find and as a sideeffect hunger would also be disabled.

The server is not offline or anything, you're just using the wrong domain!
Use minecraft.f-craft.net instead which is the actual official domain and also the one in the logo above.

The major one being me studying nowadays but I do have plenty of left over time so it's not only that, I've also had a bit of an issue with motivation to work with stuff, for example the server. It's however something I'm hoping to change in not too long so I can get some more stuff done again.

Home invite for everyone... Almost
Every user now have access to the command to invite someone to your home but for people who haven't contributed $10 or more it's however somewhat limited.

You'll only be able to invite someone once every 12 hours. Yes, that might sound like a lot but you have to remember that it's better than nothing and the feature isn't intended as a teleport everyone to you all the time but bring some friend who're miles away from your place who maybe just joined the server or such.

If you're a $10+ donator it will be just like before though, the command is used by typing /hi [name] [homename].

AFK!
You may have noticed lotsa "Player is now AFK" messages lately, since today this feature was enabled, it has been around for a while but never really used.

If you do not move or chat for 5 minutes you automatically go afk and it announces it to everyone currently online, you will in this state also be protected from taking any form of damage - players, mobs, and other stuff as well.

You're also able to manually go afk by typing /afk but note here that you will NOT be protected until 5 minutes has passed.

New moderators added
DelvinFox, Moukou and Laria_D2 is now proper mods on the server, take it easy on them to begin with~

A sideeffect to this is that a couple of inactive mods will be removed quite shortly to make room for more for the upcoming mod system update where there will be more specific roles.

Italic names?
Starting today staff is defined by having an italic name, no longer a specific color. This means that the colors previously reserved for mods and admins will become available for the particular contributor levels that can pick colors later on but not right now.

The rules have also gotten a slight update to get more clear and understanable, thank DelvinFox for that~

The moderators mentioned in the old newspost will officially be added tomorrow (Friday), the moderators that was listed was:

- Laria_D2

And at a later date when some mod system arragments have been done mod apps will open for real with selected positions to apply for rather than just sending in interest for in general.

Rules update
Tomorrow (Friday) there will also be a slight update to the rules, DelvinFox has reviewed them and fixed various loopholes or just confusion in general.

Okay, let's start here with both (again) apologizing about a lot of delays both for users but also for staff.

Stuff have been standing a bit still lately and it's mostly been because of myself, having a lot to do but hopefully I've reached a state where I can finally sit down and actually work on things now again. So what new is there to expect this month?

First of all we're adding a few more mods, these are however already selected but there will be mod apps opening up at a later date once the new mod system is fully made in use.

The new mods will be:
DelvinFox (Already added)
Laria_D2 (Not yet added)
Moukou (Not yet added)

So what will I be doing this month?
I'll be doing a lot of background work which may not be noticed a lot and it's things I kinda want to work in my own pace with so I know I get it done the way that pleases me, it's some preparation work for a later project.

A more serious notice
Sure, F-craft do neither have a lot of mods or admins but there is a few users, not naming names currently that seem to expect that a mod or admin can do anything in pretty much an instant and not really considering why there may be delays.

And there have also been a few issues where mods aren't really given the respect they should have, you shouldn't fear the mods but if a mod tells you something for example a warning it's something that should be listened to.

cooking challange At Saturday the 10th of May at 3pm EST/GMT -5 there will be a Team Baking Challange!

Okay, but what is a "Team Baking Challange"?
It's going to be a competition where there's two teams with five on each side and it's going to work out like a race. The main goal is to bake the amount of cakes, pumpkin pies and cookies before the enemy team.

The catch however is that you need to use the resources provided in the event, there'll be a few assets available for you and they're listed below:

Farm
This is where you'll find wheat, pumpkins and also sugarcanes. There's enough wheat here for the whole challange but pumpkins and sugarcanes is more limited so you may have to replant those.

Chicken coop
Eggs! This is where there'll be some chickens as there's not close with enough eggs for all the things so you will need to pickup eggs that the chickens pop out, you can be really adventurous and actually throw eggs to spawn in more chickens but as everyone know that's not a 100% chance.

Barn
And we can't forget milk, there is cows in the barn as well as some buckets in a chest but there's only three of them.

Storage
The store will have a few of the basic items to begin the challange, when the storage stock runs out you'll have to use the other assets to get resources.

Bakery
This is where all the cooking will be made with the exception of pumpkin pies which can be made without a crafting table.

When you've made cookies or pumpkin pies you throw them into a collection booth which is labelled with either a cookie or a pie and cakes is placed on the team's table.

There's also another catch, there will no food regeneration so you'll actually have to eat, either things that are part of the challange or have someone that for example make bread as there's wheat in excess.

Teams will be randomly decided once the competition has started and if there's more than 10 people I'll do a draw and any excess will be put into reserve if anyone have to leave or does not arrive.

Rules
- No breaking things other than wheat, pumpkins, cocoa beans and sugarcanes
- No throwing wrong things into the collection area, it will be subtracted from the total amount afterwards
- Don't take items from itemframes

How do I sign up?
You'll be able to type /bakingchallange and you'll be teleported to where it's held and can write your name on a sign.

Prizes will be revealed at the event location later ahead!

The date or time may change

This monthly letter is dedicated to everyone who play or have played on the server.

I just want to thank everyone, in a positive way and also say sorry about many things. Without you I wouldn't be able to run this server as long as I have, and no, this is not a farewell it's just me wanting to show how grateful I actually am about everyone playing on this server and all the friendships that have formed from it and sadly in a few cases also lost.

First of all I want to thank anyone who've chipped in and contributed to the server not only with donations but also with a good spirit that makes the community grow stronger and tighter, of course without all the donations the server have gotten it would possibly not have been around today or at least not how it looks currently, I maybe wouldn't be the one running and hosting it.

I also want to thank the staff for being able to actually cope with me, there have been crappy guidelines and sometimes even none and there have been an insanely slow progress about actually adding more mods or fixing issues relating moderating.

And I'm sorry for how insanely slow or lazy I can be at times when it comes to particular things, it's not always about being lazy and there's a few other reasons but it doesn't change the fact that I haven't done much to try improve things that are troublesome or doesn't work.

I'm also sorry for promising something or giving false hopes about things that never seem to happen and just repeatedly get delayed further and further, the biggest reason why this happens is because I'm so damn careful and afraid to do the wrong things but doing nothing is a thing that is almost more wrong.

If the community hadn't been able to cope with me as great as you all have I wouldn't probably still be hosting this and the server would probably not be around at all anymore so yes, I am VERY grateful for everything.

I can't promise any miracle changes but I want things to go to the better and I want to encourage things that make the community grow stronger and better, so please, cope with me for a little while longer and we'll for once actually see things start to happen.

So please don't stop being awesome <3
