My name is kilker12! For those of you that don't know me I am the sole founder of Craftrealms!
Over 3 years ago my friend showed me Minecraft and I thought it was the stupidest game I'd ever seen. Then I tried playing it after he left my house... I didn't sleep that night.
After playing for some time on SP I discovering a service called Mineshafter (Are they still around anymore?) and got into a cracked server. I hated it. Everything was done poorly and made me sad. Then I realized Mojang allows anybody with a mouse and some batch file/networking experience run their own server, so naturally I had to try it out. I then figured I would post it on Mineshafters list of servers and see if anybody actually joined. I was thrilled to have 5 people playing on my server (hosted on my PC... imagine the laaag of a home internet connection!).
Heres a video made by our old head admin Bakersix of our 2nd(?) ever map. It made me cry uncontrollably.
Fast forward three years through many more map resets, a change of ownership, a player-sent death threat sent to my house by mail (yes, I'm serious), and many missed homework assignments, CraftRealms has become one of the biggest Minecraft servers the world has seen with 2000 members playing at any given time and over 30,000 registered users.
So yea guys, feel free to ask me any question that may cross your mind in the comments section below and Ill be sure to answer it! Ill also put together a list of good questions and answers in this post.
A number of people
have expressed an interest in having a full NightFall reset.Initially it was planned for at the beginning
of the New Year, but recently a number of our players are complaining there is
not enough of a challenge now that most people have completed their
builds.We are now considering moving
the reset to early or mid-September.We
are talking a complete reset as in starting everything over to include claim
blocks.The End and Nether will also be
fully reset with The End becoming a "no building” area again as the Ender Farms
just made xp way too easy.
We are considering having a weekend where all members have
unrestricted creative – but understand, nothing you make or store will be
carried into the reset.It is also not a
time to grief others.It will be a
weekend of wild and interesting builds.Prior to this creative period, I will stop the server long enough to
save the maps as they are.When the
creative period is done, I may need some time to reset the server/worlds using
different seeds and to also do a full dynmap render.
The early reset is only an idea that was presented and is
not required for any reason other than to increase interest in building
again.If most people want to wait till
the New Year we can do so, but you need to speak up now.Please leave comments as if you do not voice
your opinion here, it may not be considered.
After long work, the PvP server is 99% ready and will possibly open back tonight!
A few things have changed and I would like you to read this post carefully as i will try to answer almost all concerns to avoid confusion.
- Spawn World. We have a custom made spawn world which looks amazing! Thanks to Dr_Bond for his contribution and hard work on the spawn.
- Around the spawn PVP is enabled and there are a lot of areas to run and explore.
- To start your faction you need to teleport to the wild!
/Warp Wild , Warp Wild2 , Warp Wild3
- To get to the nether you can do /warp nether
- To get to the End you can do /warp end
- To get to the shop you can do /warp shop
- To see the ranks on the server you can do /warp ranks.
- McMMO has been limited in a few ways to balance pvp and mining. Max levels have been brought down to 700.
- All Worlds have a 25000 Border
- Money, inventories, Factions, McMMO stats, PvP Stats have been reset.
- Runes were NOT added.
Donor ranks have been changed in quite a few ways. For starters there are now 4 Ranks instead of 10.
The Ranks Are:
- Fighter: 10$
- Guardian: 25$
- Rebel: 40$
- Olympian: 80$
These ranks had their perms and kits changed. Please check /warp ranks for more exact info.
Commands like /tnt /antioch /fireball have been removed from all donor ranks.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO DONORS!
To make up for these changes everyone has been given a massive rank boost. EVERYONE who had a rank bellow guardian was upgraded to Guardian. So even if you had a Fighter rank, you now have been given Guardian. To all those who had Guardian and above, you now have Olympian.
ALL OLD Crusaders, Rebels, Rangers and Olympians please leave a comment bellow with your username. Due to the fact that now Olympian is 80$ Everyone who bought Crusader and up paid 90$ or more and You will get a store coupon of the amount difference. Please make sure that you leave a comment bellow if you had bought any of those 4 Ranks listed above. I still have the list of old donors so i will double check all the comments. If you are caught lying you will be banned from CR for 60 Days.
Rank Info and perks will be updated on the donor store tonight as well.
This update was done with the aim of achieving a very balanced pvp/rading experience. We tried to be as fair as we could with all the donor perks so donors would not mess with the gameplay of non-donors.
