Test Livecraft’s new website!

Shushker and I (alfonsojon) have been busy developing a website to replace this one. It might look a little different, but what powers it is extremely different.

The new website is home-made, but the one you’re reading this on is powered by WordPress.

You can see it by clicking the “Test website!” link up in the navigation bar.

Plans for the new site:

Check if the user actually has a minecraft account before registering
Be way faster
Have forums and other neat stuff
Better website chat
Make it easier to use

Current status:
Layout made and designed
Begin working on news functions
Begin working on user registration functions

We’re online!

Livecraft’s online and ready for you guys to visit! Some things may be buggy such as furnaces and inventories however this should be resolved shortly.


Minecraft 1.3, Map reset

Due to the HUGE amount of changes with Minecraft 1.3.1, we’ve decided to reset the map so that everyone can have fun with the jungle pyramids and better NPC villages. The Flatlands were not reset, and neither were the Skylands. It’s going to be a while until the Bukkit team (the people who develop our server software) make a version compatible with Minecraft 1.3.1, so we figured we’d use this time to make the new spawn. Please don’t tell us to upgrade, we will as soon as possible but until then you can participate in chats to the server through our IRC channel (The chat page, up in the top). There might be a few plugin tweaks in the following week in order to accommodate Minecraft 1.3.1 (such as a planned re-colouring of the user prefixes) and possibly a spleef plugin. Other than that, the server experience should be the same, aside from the map.

Hope this clarifies things,
Jonathan Alfonso (alfonsojon)
