New features for Towncraft have arrived!
If you have logged in lately to our Family Friendly server, you will have noticed that we have made some changes.
“Oh Noooooes I don’t like change!” I hear some of you cry in despair. Fear not my friend. Towncraft as you know it has not changed and still exists.
When you arrive in the new Towncraft Lobby, just look for the portal to ‘TC-2’ and you will be back in your familiar surroundings. You can also type “/server tc2” into chat and it will do the same thing.
“What does this mean?”
I’m glad you asked. This means that we can now manage our server and your game time a lot better because the TC2 server is already more stable and less likely to need rebooting as often.
If we do need to restart or reboot the server we can get you all to the lobby where you can explore or choose another server!!
“What other servers?”
Wow your full of great questions today… try this in game chat ‘/server’. It will list all the servers that you can click on now and ones we plan to open shortly.
- Games Island (open – Survive the mobs, play a game of Mob Arena or Block Party with your friends)
- Kol’s Island
- Lobby (open)
Any server that is available now you can simply click on its name in chat and you will be magically whisked away to a far off land.
“So which server is next?” (okay now your just reading my mind )
We are currently working on these 2 servers next: Towncraft 3 and Creative.
Towncraft 3 will be a brand new map that will have all the juicy 1.8 features you have been waiting for. It will not replace TC2. TC2 will remain open for as long as you want to play it. Now we have the technology to have both running at the same time.
Creative server will start as a ‘PlotMe’ style map where you can have a plot and build what you like. More details will be available as we work them out and finalize which setup we will use. In the future we may also have a display server for showcasing the best creative builds in a ‘real world’ Minecraft setting. More on that later 😉
So we hope you enjoy all the changes. They will certainly make managing the server easier.
