DFTBA

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.

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......

The Staff of Nerdcrafteria proudly present our final staff-managed town for the map - Scythian Peaks!

The town is located in the icy region on the Northeast side of the map. The name and architecture is heavily influenced by early Russian and Central Asian cultures fused with some modern steampunk elements. It will be co-mayored by our own @Theo da Kaffei and @flash_fire13! Check out a sneak peek of the town's fantastic lore.

Long ago the village of Ryba sent out a team of brave explorers to roam the Scythian mountain range in search of diamonds and other valuables believed to be hidden amongst the icy peaks.

The explorers went happily, proud to have been chosen to bring such riches and honour to their humble town. Three months came and went with no word from the group. Six months passed. Seven. Eight. A year.

The community of Ryba assumed the explorers to be dead, and deemed the mountains of Scythia too dangerous for anyone to approach. Rumors of wild beasts and monsters quickly began to spread.

Many generations passed. The Ryban explorers became a historical legend. Ryba transformed culturally and technologically becoming the booming fishing port that we know today.

Eventually a new team of Ryban miners ventured to the mountains, overcame their fears and faced the myths of the dangerous beasts lurking there. They set up a small settlement outside the site of the old mine entrance, naming the settlement after their home city in an attempt to cling onto what little comforts they had out in the seemingly uninhabited wilderness.

Or so they thought ...

Plots will be available beginning...
For those of us in the Northern side of the globe, it's finally summer! The sun is shining, the trees are green and the air has started to smell of BBQs and cut grass.

And when it's summer.. it can mean only one thing CARNIVAL!!

Now is the time to start planning. As with last year, everyone at staff would also love to join the players in creating an event to remember. So.. this is a post to recruit you all!

Here's the details so far:
  • The carnival will last for the first week of July 2nd-10th! Our current projections have us building the majority of it throughout the weekend of July 1st-2nd, with the carnival's grand-opening in the afternoon of July 2nd.. Luckily, we have a bit of wiggle room, since we do have an entire month, so these can change to meet our needs.
  • We will have a channel on the Nerdcrafteria Discord Server to have discussions regarding the roles of certain organizations, planning, and expectations for the carnival.
  • We hope that player organizations, whatever type they may be, or simply new groups of players and friends, will come up with unique, fun events, games, and builds that will add to the fun of the carnival. These could be decorations, they could be games, they could be events... the possibilities are endless and we would love your ideas.
How can you join us?
  • Single Players or groups (town committees, player organizations, etc.) are welcome to enter builds
  • Message PerfectFlaw or WildWitch12 on the forums if you wish to join. Include the following:

Hello Nerdcrafteria!

Today is the start of June, a month also known as Pride Month that has been declared a month of overcoming prejudice and discrimination.

To celebrate this month on the server we decided to have a bit of fun with some of the colorful pride flags that represent sexual orientations and gender identities.
So I'm happy to announce a new month long event:


Cap
ture The Pride Flag!

Throughout this entire month, you will be able to collect 10 different colors of berries to complete pride flag related sets and get prizes. Of course we can't inculde all variations of pride flags in this so we limited it to 6 of the more common ones. We didn't entirely forget other identities though. At /warp prideflags, MOGAI, an active player organisation founded to support acceptance of sexual and gender idendity varieties, and staff members worked together to create a lovely pride viallage that will include a few more flags and an explanation of what they represent.
Which kinds of colors you need to complete a flag will depend on the flag's colors and will be slightly simplified. That means for example that royal blue, light blue, and cyan will all be represented by blueberries and pinkberries will also be used for magenta. To claim the prize for a set you need to right click the trade siigns at /warp prideflags with the appropriate number and kinds of berries in your inv. Should you be able to complete all 6 sets, you can /modreq to get a special...
