Massive Halloween Photo Shoot

Last Saturday, October 25th, we held the largest group photo in MassiveCraft history. Not only did we gather over 150 people in one place, but we also filled up all of S4 (sorry guys!) and lagged our poor admins half to death.

If you’ve been taking photo shoots of your own around the temporary Halloween world (accessed with /warp halloween or by visiting the Regalian Victory Tower), feel free to share them here. If you see yourself or your friends in any of these, feel free to use them wherever you want. Tag yourself, tag your buddies, tag their buddies! And remember, have a happy Halloween!

Cue classy slideshow music.

Old foes are returning for a last stand. Excitement will come in the form of grand festivities and even grander plots. The fate of Aloria will be forever changed.

Teled Methen Pre-Release

Teled Methen, our newest world map, has been officially opened for premiums today in the form of a pre-release. For a period of of roughly 6 days, Premiums will have the ability to explore the Elven ruins world of Teled Methen. Faction claiming has been turned off, so nobody can claim anything. PVP and block building has also been turned off, so the map is purely open for exploration and discovery for 4 days. On Monday the 13th of October at 22:00 GMT, the world will officially be opened for non premiums. At the same time as this official opening, the world’s block building and faction claiming will be enabled.

If you haven’t decided yet whether to donate for premium, or to donate again after a while of not having done so, now would be the perfect time to donate! Premiums have 6 whole days to explore the map and look at those high profile locations that everyone wants. Maybe find a hidden location that looks even better? It also gives you a head start on everyone else. You can be on the location that you want to claim as soon as the world opens! The DynMap for Teled Methen is already available. Check it out now!

Teled Methen is the Elven continent that once housed the great Elven capital of Rië. The proud Elven metropolis was reduced to a pile of rubble, but Elves have started to reclaim the lands lost to the Orcs. Will you be on the front lines and build a glorious new base, castle or city in these lands that are so full of lost memories and ancient glory? This world will be fiercely contested by our player base, so make sure you are there early!

Time to Get Spooky

The harvest season is coming to Aloria!

The spookiest and most exciting time of the year, the harvest, is about to begin. Become a part of something big, help make important decisions that will change the world, and participate in a plot that will bring back old foes, terrorize the lowest of peasants to the highest of princes, and tantalize the horror lovers in us all.

The harvest season will start out with exciting events all leading up to the Harvest Festival for the last two weeks of October. Costume contests, vending stalls, enticing quests and plot lines, and a grand Harvest Ball at the end of the month are only a small taste of what you’ll experience this Halloween, when MassiveCraft is taking greatness to the next level.

Can you handle it?

Now 1.8 Compatible

MassiveCraft has updated and is now 1.8 compatible. You can log on using either Minecraft 1.7 or 1.8. Both client versions work.

Note that we are still running Minecraft 1.7.10. Enchanting is still the same, you can not make birch doors etc. The only thing that was added is the possibility of logging on with a 1.8 client.

As a side effect the /pet plugin had to be temporarily disabled due to bugs. We will add it back in as soon as possible.

  • Q: Should I update my client to 1.8?
    A: You can but we suggest you don’t. Good client mods like Optifine, Forge and MorePlayerModels are not updated yet.
  • Q: Why not actually update to 1.8?
    A: Bukkit 1.8 is not available yet.
  • Q: Was this update really necessary?
    A: Yes. Take a look at the daily statistics (http://www.massivecraft.com/stats-day). It seems a lot of people don’t know how or don’t want to downgrade their clients.
  • Q: So when will MassiveCraft actually update to Minecraft 1.8?
    A: The release date for Bukkit 1.8 is unknown. But as soon as it’s released we will update.
