Nouveau Batiment: Opening Soon!

Nouveau Batiment’s History

Imagine a world where a decade ago, artwork could provide sustainable living for a couple, but now is barely making enough money for bread. Such things happened to a young couple named Margaret and Walter Jones. Therefore they escaped to a barren land that they could develop into a new haven, a new place to live, and a wholly new style of building: Nouveau Batiment. In this town, art was to be the driving force behind the economy, so that architecture, painting, sculpting, theatrical performances, and music could thrive. The couple constructed the mansion to be their own house, and...

We are pleased to announce that the joint winner of the anniversary old map build contest has arrived:
Welcome to the Old Map Museum!
/warp museum
Dreamed up and created by contest winners Pagophilus and Cat0ninetails
(and put together by staff)

Always wondered what the fuss was about with the old map? Just want it to come back?

Well, wander over to Nerdtropolis's historic district for everything you could ever want to know about life back then.

There's a space for all the old map towns, special blocks, insider jokes, a maze, cookies - even a gift shop!

Server Event Esther Day! <3

Esther Day 2017!

On August 25th 2010 Esther Earl,
a beloved member of the
nerdfighter community, sadly passed away.



In her memory we celebrate August 3rd (Esther's Birthday) as Esther Day.
A day in which we celebrate the types of non-romantic love that often get taken for granted.

For some this means telling a friend / family member you love them.
For us here on staff it also means showing you, the player base,
just how much we appreciate you.

So in honour of Esther, and in the spirit of Esther Day,
we would like to show you all our appreciation by announcing the following.

TSWGO / Esther Day Vanity Tag

A special vanity tag!
No need to spend anything on it, this one's on us ;)

Special Esther Day Server Boon
A special boon of healing, flight (and other boon goodies),
will be active on the server for a full 24 hours.

That's right ... 24 hours!
(8am EDT August 3rd - 8am EDT August 4th)

Esther Day Gift Giving Area


[​IMG]

In mineworld there will be a special area set up
where you can set up chests & signs with
lots of notes & gifts for your friends.

We hope you all have a fantastic Esther Day.
Thank you for making this server the awesome place it is
Important Updates Updated CoC
Hey all,

Just wanted to point your attention to the recently updated Code of Conduct found here and on a new tab at the top of the forums for easy access! :D There were no major changes to any existing rules, however @Stormy very kindly went through and made sure to clarify a few sections that weren't clear.

The biggest change of note was the split of Rule 5 into what is now Rules 5 and 6 in order to better delineate Lag & Redstone rules from Mob Farms & Block Generator rules.

Rule #5: No mob or block generators in any world except Skyblock and Survival.
Block generators, mob grinders/farms, or fish farms are allowed in Skyblock and Survival only, as long as they do not cause lag. Any generators or farms must also have player input - meaning you must actively be there in order for the farm, grinder, or generator to work. AFK farms are not allowed. This includes using macros or taping down a button or key.

Mob farms/traps/grinders are defined as planned out builds/contraptions with the purpose of making gathering, manipulating, and killing mobs extremely easy and danger-free for the maker. This includes creating dark rooms, trapping mobs in holes/fences, automated setups in which mobs are spawned, killed, and their items gathered without any player interaction. Similarly, block generators are setups designed to make gathering and collecting large numbers of a certain block completely automated or to greatly remove the effort, danger, and time normally required to do so. Some examples include duplication glitch generators, obsidian generators, and cobblestone generators.

Rule #6: Beware of lag! Be cautious with automatic redstone machines. Keep the number of entities on your plots and farms in-check.
Regardless of how your machine is set up - if...
Server Event Carnival 2017


Carnival 2017



The most anticipated Nerdcrafteria event of July 2017 is upon us: it's carnival time!
Step right up to see the games and activities we have in store for you! Over at /warp carnival, you can compete against your friends in the Staff Arcade, play games and explore in the Player Arcade, and even win tokens that can be spent on cool prizes!

When can I carnival?
Our carnival will be open from July 4th to July 14th.

How do I win tokens?

Win tokens by winning games! Some games will give out tokens automatically, others will require staff members to be present to hand them out.

Where do I get my prizes?
Check out the prize tent in the Staff Arcade! This is where tokens can be traded for fun prizes. Will you get a random treat for 1 token, or save your tokens for an even bigger prize?

Um... My token is broken?
Do not despair! Some games may give you broken tokens, or they may be dropped by some of our spooky and undead friends. Three of these can be traded for whole tokens in the prize tent!

We would like to give a special thank you to all of the players and player organizations that helped contribute to the Player Arcade. The carnival wouldn't be the same without your hard work!

And with that, go forth and...
Important Updates Survival is open!
*cough* We tried to save it. *cough* We really did! When we installed that new plugin in survival, we thought it would help. At first, all was going well... and then disaster struck!

There were large barrels... and we open-- oh, it's everywhere now! It's seeping into the server. Why do I feel warm? *cough* And why-- *cough* do I have this -- *cough cough cough* horrible cough?

If you wish to enter, proceed with caution. Dangers may aw-- oh, good! The hazmat team has arrived.

Find the book. Stay safe. Stay healthy. You know what they say about an apple a day right? I'm not sure if that's going to work this time around. Just stay alive!

In the following weeks, we hope that we can get some help before it turns into a worldwide epidemic... that is... if anyone is still alive.

Survival world's new season is now open! We hope you enjoy the changes! Look for events to improve your odds of survival in the next few weeks. ;)

Sincerely,
The Staff of Nerdcrafteria
The new skyblock season is here! It will run until late October.

In addition to the islands you know and love, we have 3 new starter islands!
- A super easy one with lots of biomes to play in
ScSh 2017-06-25 at 12.38.08.png
- A super hard parkour one
ScSh 2017-06-25 at 12.34.19.png
- An under the sea art island!
Play the classic
ScSh 2017-06-25 at 12.36.05.png

Two islands?! ScSh 2017-06-25 at 12.36.10.png
Super hard
ScSh 2017-06-25 at 12.39.37.png

You have 10 island resets, so you have enough lives to explore them all.

There are new nerdfighter challenges, access to all the blocks(!) and a new minishop to keep you busy.
We will also announce a new skyblock build contest soon! So start gathering blocks.....

One known glitch. Some of the islands don't light properly at first. If you put a torch nearby, all the lights will poof into action (inc glowstone and sea lanterns). If your villager dies of zombie before you can reach them to light their islands, modreq and we will replace.

Survival is coming in a few days.... we promise it's worth the wait!
Congratulations!
Another skyblock season is over and the islands were B-E-A-utiful :)
And here are your results.

The final top 10 islands were......
