It has been a while since I sat down to type one of these monthly updates. With so much going on and so much in the works, it was difficult to assemble an update for November. The key reason behind that is because of the massive amounts of time I have been pouring into developing tons of cool and fun stuff for the MegaCraft 2.0 Server Revival.
MegaCraft 2.0? What is this you speak of?
Well I'm glad you asked! MegaCraft 2.0 is a project that has been in the works for the past few months. Around September, the MegaCraft Team noticed a drop in players as well as an increase in discontent with the state of the server. This did not go unnoticed, as I began to search for reasoning behind this. One attempt to revitalize the server was the new Creative system, which has been a smashing success. However, we still noticed that people were quitting and tension between players was high. Therefore, I have planned a complete server revival that will restore much of the fun we all had in...
It's that time of year again. Everyone is out shopping, buying gifts, and spreading holiday cheer. MegaCraft hopes to be a part of your holidays too by announcing that all donation packages are 20% off until Dec. 31!
One of the most common questions I have received in the last few weeks is: What is MegaCraft doing for the 1.7 release? As of now, this is the plan.
When 1.7 is released on Friday, we will move to a temporary vanilla server that fully supports 1.7. Once a stable release for bukkit is announceed, we will again open up the main and Creative servers, while also adding the vanilla map as a additional map hosted in the main server. However, this world has a twist: almost all commands will be disabled and inventories will NOT sync between the current world and this 1.7 world. @Kluebbert. This will allow people to return to the original survival experience while also enjoying the new releases of 1.7.
However, this world will NOT be permanent. The reason behind this is as follows:
Originally, I was planning a complete server revamp that would contain a plethora of new and original features found only on MegaCraft. The idea was to release all of these new features along...
After being mentioned previously on the October update, the voting system has been completely revamped! Now, instead of receiving emeralds for voting, you now receive Vote Points! These vote points can be exchanged for many rewards!
As of now, these rewards are:
- Emeralds (25 Vote Points)
- +1 Creative Plots (250 Vote Points)
- 3 XP Bottles (150 Vote Points)
If you have any ideas for new rewards, feel free to leave a comment!

When the Creative server launched, this was an idea that we knew would increase the enjoyment for everyone!
From now on, every two weeks, the Creative server will be having a build contest in which anyone can submit a build for the category specified. For this contest, the category will be Modern Houses!
To submit your build, you must stand inside your plot and type /submit. After the building time period ends (second Friday), Staff members will have the ability to review all submissions in the following criteria:
Finally, a winner will be chosen on the next Monday. The winner, as of now, will receive the following prizes:
- 100 emeralds
- 3 Additional Creative Plots
- VIP rank for one month
Also, to allow for the build contests to occur, player plot allocation has increased! Plot allocation is as follows:
- Default (normal players): 3 Plots
- Donator: 10 Plots
- VIP: 25 Plots
- Elite: 50 Plots...
