We are very proud to announce the winners of our Skyblock and Mainworld build contests. Thank you all for your submissions~

Skyblock Build Contest
This was a very, very close, and we were blown away by the quality of the entries. Our winners put hours of work into their builds that beautifully reflected the nature of NC's towns. You can also warp to the winner's islands to take a look yourselves :)

In third place, we present aquaarmor23!!
-who wins a basket of impossible-to-get Skyblock blocks! Aquaarmor's Emerald Falls themed build contained an awesome (and hilarious) maze which we loved exploring. Judges' comments:

"Super cute and creative!"
"A+ use of humorous signs and a very fun and engaging build"
"Made me laugh out loud"
"The maze idea is pretty original and the signs are cute"
Here's some screenshots for you all:

In second place, we present Gloindin and Tomsk31!!
-who win a large basket of impossible-to-get blocks! Their Thistledown themed island was large and beautiful, and definitely captured some of that Thistledown magic! Judges' comments:

"Lovely build of an extremely grand scale"
"Really impressive tree, super pretty"
"Soo much work must have gone into this"
"This little mini TD was really well done. I love how they had an example of all three plot types"
"The build looks amazing, and it was really close for me."

Downtime (Resolved) Emergency Server Maintenance
Server is back up!


Hey folks,
due to some rather unforseen issues that cropped up rather suddenly we had to shut down the server.
We don't have an exact ETA yet on when we will go online again, but be assured we are working on it :)

Thanks for your patience.

Server Event The Great Fairy Quest!

~Happy spring everyone!~

I know we're all hyped for the opening of Viridian Isles, but we've also got our Spring Event starting today!​

[​IMG]

In celebration of spring, it seems 8 magical fairies have appeared across Nerdcrafteria, and together they've built a quest just for all of you!

Think you have what it takes to find all the fairies and snag the prize? Here's what you need to know…​

  • The quest starts with Navi in Hub. You can't miss her!​
  • There are fairies in every world, and each fairy will give a quest book that will lead to the next one.​
  • Each quest book will also have a riddle you will need to solve to get the next book, as well as a code letter.​
  • Some of the answers to the riddles are passwords, and sometimes you'll need an item. Which the solution is will be clear once you have found the fairy.​
  • While it is possible to find the fairies before getting their clue, the final code is random, so you will need to do the quest in order to make sure the code is correct if you want the prize. (Because you can't exactly bring the quest books across worlds, we highly recommend writing these letters down somewhere!)​
  • Once you have found all the letters, you'll be directed to modreq for your prize~​
Something else that should be noted: giving out solutions to the riddles or the code letters (and their order!) will disqualify you from the event. Please do not do this even as a joke - what may have been easy for you to figure out may not be so for...
Server Event St. Llama's Day


HAPPY ST. LLAMA'S DAY, NERDCRAFTERIA!

The magical holiday of leprechauns, gold, and potatoes is upon us again. This weekend in mineworld you may notice some structures cropping up.

When it begins to rain, you might be lucky to find a large pot of gold at the end of a beautiful RAINBOW!

Feel free to take as much as you want. Do not stake claim on a pot of gold that you are not intending on taking right at that moment. If you do not have the time, please leave it for another player.

As we all know, it storms an awful lot here in Nerdcrafteria, so don't count on a pot of gold appearing every time it storms. The leprechauns would go broke if that were the case. However, when one does appear, you can bet you'll hear about it. ;)

Please do not bother staff about where or when pots of gold will be appearing.


Rainbows and pots of gold will appear starting today. The leprechauns will return from whence they came late on Sunday, March 19th. Pots that were not claimed during that time will remain until a player takes the resources or mineworld resets.

[​IMG]

Have fun and maybe spread the wealth a bit if you find multiple pots!
:D

HAPPY NEW MAP ANNIVERSARY, EVERYONE!!!

Time sure flies, doesn’t it, friends? Seems like just yesterday we cut the ribbon on this shiny map of ours, but it’s already been a year! And on this momentous occasion, we’d like to celebrate by reflecting on our memories of the old map, and the new experiences we’ve had in the new.

We’re so hyped, we’ve got three special events going!

1. Nerdtropolis (Historic District) Build Contest

Want to be the architect of an official town build? Now’s your chance! We’ve got an empty space in the Historic District of Nerdtropolis we’d like to fill, and we’d love to see YOUR build take that spot!

The space is 50x30, and is located on the outer edge of Nerdtropolis’s Historic District. The purpur blocks pictured here are on the outside edges of the contest space strictly so you can get a visual, and are not included in the build space.

2017-03-04_00.19.06.png

Given that this is in the Historic District, we’d like it if the build focused on the old map. New to the server? You can download the old map here and poke around for inspiration :)

The third place winner will receive a 1,000 llama prize, second place a 3,000 llama prize, and first place will receive 5,000 llamas and their build placed in Nerdtropolis!

This contest will be running until March 31, 11:55pm EST (entry form coming soon).

2. Skyblock Build Contest

This contest will show our current towns some love! You may choose to focus on one town in particular, or draw inspiration from multiple towns.

No, don’t panic - your submission does not have to be your entire island. However, please make it clear which part(s) of your island you would like...

The Viridian Isles are now officially open!
(see comments)


I'm sure many of you have noticed the islands slowly beginning to form on the southeast corner of the map. We are finally ready to announce to you all - Viridian Isles!

Viridian will be our exclusive, new VIP Town! Lifetime VIP players will have the opportunity to build on extra large plots with a variety of terrain and biome options to choose from.

The town will be officially open on April 15th!

------------------------

I'm a VIP! How do I get one?


If you are a lifetime VIP, you can register for a Viridian Isles plot right here! Choice of plots will be in the order your application is received, so don't delay. If you are one of the few that purchased a VIP plot expansion on the old map, you will be given priority in your plot selection.

Do reclaim rules and other plot rules still apply?

Yes, they do. However, reclaims will be every 3 months for Viridian plots as opposed to the standard 3 weeks.

-------------------------

We have lots more exciting stuff coming over the next few months so stay tuned!

Love,
The Staff of Nerdcrafteria

P.S. If you are in the Boston area, please come say hi to TurnDowntheAC and me this weekend at Nerdcon Nerdfighteria! We'd love to meet you guys! :ftl: :hanklerfish:

As you make your way to /warp auction, you see the building has changed. Gone are the quartz pillars and bright colours, replaced with dark woods and yellow accents. Each pedestal with a chest is surrounded by nature, arcane tappings, and other fascinating objects. The lights are redstone, mysteriously lit. The air is buzzing with power, and as you wander through the room looking at the chests, you see in the centre as you reach the back of the building, a tavern’s counter. Behind stands a half-elf, their purple eyes looking through you. “Welcome, adventurer!” They call, and a small blue dog behind them barks. “We’re having the RPG Class auction later. In the meantime, can I interest you in something?” They gesture to the signs on either side of the counter. The room slowly fills, voices buzzing around you. Other players, some you know and some who are new gather around, waiting for the event to begin.

Important Updates Skyblock and Survival Reset
Hello Nerdcrafteria!

I know it's been quite a while since our last resets of Skyblock and Survival, so without further ado here's the plan.

Saturday, February 18th sometime in morning EST - both servers will be brought down for while we reset the maps and test a few things. For Survival, we'll be doing a shorter reset cycle that will run for 5 weeks until March 25th. There will be a scavenger hunt/quest that will run throughout this time. After that, we will move on to our normal reset period with a themed map we are still finalizing.

In Skyblock, we will continue to use ASkyblock. This round will be doing the Nether Islands and added from Nerdfighteria specific challenges for you guys to enjoy!

Thank you and we hope you enjoy! :D
