The best Minecraft RPG server network, sign up today and start your adventure in Minecraft!

Sunday July 31st4PM CST
@Admins | @Moderators | @Heralds

We're planning to have a community meeting for Herocraft!
All users will be able to attend - only staff and Supporters above T5 will have voice.
(After the discussion is over we will voice everyone)

Meeting Area: (meeting channel)
http://hc.to/discord (T5+ voice / staff)

This is a community driven by a lot of hard work and dedication - I want users to be able to air disputes, issues and anything else in the open so that we, as staff, can resolve and handle these things in an orderly fashion.

Topics for discussion (so far):
  • New Classes
  • Dungeons
  • Exp Rate
  • Item Drops
  • Instances
  • The Future
These meetings are generally a little chaotic - they last about an hour (3PM to 4PM CST). Please be respectful during these meetings - if we have to go out of the way to remove you, you will be removed from all Herocraft services for life.

I'm pleased to announce, something long time coming:
Tournaments are now a MONTHLY event!
I'm really glad to finally have these set, as I've wanted to have Monthly Tournaments for a while!
They will regularly be held on the 2nd Saturday of each month, however this date can change if needed.

Each month a post like the ones we're all used to will be posted, detailing the format for that Month's Tourney.
Tournaments are not limited to one a month, so sometimes if we're feeling it, we'll host less serious tournaments.

As always, feel free to ask questions, or leave suggestions/criticism below!

Hey Herocraft,
I don't like making these posts. But I'll just get it out in the open. I waited for an entire month for a paid developer to finish Townships, we basically got scammed, that pushed back a lot of work and things that were necessary. We have a claim open in paypal to get back the money, but its more about the time lost.

Let me take a second to let you know how difficult a release is. There's 80+ moving parts (plugins,configs,balances,building, you name it) all these parts have to be in a functional state and tested, some systems new, some old, but either way everything has to be "fresh" data, so it requires a steady hand to go by all of them and make sure the configs line up, the databases are sync'd, ITS NOT FUN as a one man job.

Our new developer @Morphan1 has been lighting up the code branch for the last two weeks but realistically, this Township plugin is far larger than two weeks. We're cramming 5 years worth of logic into a plugin that really needs testing and feedback from the player base. We are creating an entire TOWNSHIP plugin from scratch that is by my design and will mirror and reflect the communities wants and feelings. WE NEED FEEDBACK AND TESTING.

I am going to release a BETA server today on the VANILLA terrain with HEROES. This server will last approximately ONE week. There will be prizes, faster leveling and overall a testing experience so people will get to know the new Townships system AND test the classes they want with the 1.9 mechanics.

The delay is due to my own failures and I take responsibility for that. I am under extreme pressure to get this functional and polished but right now the systems are barely functional and I cannot base the next 6-8 months off of something that still is riddled with bugs.

The custom terrain for the new map is set in stone, it looks amazing, the biomes are set, everything is good, the spawn had a big mishap last night and did not get completed so...

Please take a moment to read this, this is important. If you are here to troll, please don't.
You may have noticed that Herocraft (and maybe Minecraft in general) as been in bit of a decline lately, there's several reasons for this, namely that we have a map cycle of generally 6-12 months before a complete data reset, we're currently sitting at 9 months in this current map of Citadel:Towny.

The Past
Minecraft may not be around in 6 years. Herocraft itself is as old as Minecraft SMP and we're going on 6 years in less than 5 months. I have picked up several projects both in Minecraft and out, outside of Herocraft to ensure that I will still be able to work freely on games and continue to host Herocraft without the need to increase donation incentives to extreme levels (not to mention the EULA issues).

This community has survived the test of time in my opinion, we have been here longer than most triple A games stay alive and I am very proud to see this happen. In order for this community to continue to stand, I direly beseech your help. Herocraft needs leadership other than myself. I have been working on and off on finding community leaders to take on responsibilities and for the most part all of this has been very promising. The search is still on so if you are exceptionally gifted in something, please put your time to Herocraft if you can spare. We need an active group of players to be on this server helping new players feel welcomed, answer questions and fit in. We also need consistent players logging back in and obtaining ranks, rewards and prizes for doing so.

When I created Herocraft, I had one vision. Make it brutal. That vision introduced players to a type of server that they had never seen before. A brutal experience that yielded immense joy when...
Greetings!
Just sending out a notice to everyone that we will be cleaning up old HCO accounts and pruning emails.

It is our effort to streamline and curate our email list to ensure the emails we send are correctly being delivered to people who are actually wanting and willing to read!

If you have zero messages and don't want your account deleted, simply reply to this thread and you'll be safe!
The pruning process will occur in around two weeks. So please post a message or status update before then!

Thanks!
