VillageCraft is a purely public server; anyone can join. Gameplay is survival-based with PVP on in most areas. As the name suggests, we encourage and reward the building of villages.
As a new player, you will enter into a vast starting city named Qualia. Feel free to venture into the Outlands and establish your own living environment, or join one of the many existing villages. If you decide to build your own village, we’ll protect it from griefers, disable PVP (if you want), and give it an entry greeting. As the owner of the village, only you have the ability to add or remove members.
Rules & Guidelines
In VillageCraft we obey one golden rule: Don’t Be a Douche.
That’s our rule and everybody knows exactly what it means, so don’t be one.
Being a douche includes things like:
– using hacks or cheats that give you an unfair advantage (like x-ray, flymod, speedhack),
– constantly asking moderators or admins for items or promotions,
– griefing buildings that are obviously in use. (Salvaging an abandoned building is fine.)
Non-intrusive mods that improve the game are okay; we suggest Rei’s Minimap. Villages will have their own rules that will be enforced by the village owner(s). Read them and follow them.
Constructing a village can be a daunting task (not unintentionally). We encourage players to first spend time as members in other villages before taking on the task of creating and maintaining their own. If, and when, you do decide to create a village of your own, please follow the guidelines below…
Using an assortment of different materials and styles will make your village a lot more appealing. Get creative, experiment with different building techniques to find one that you think looks best. If you put a lot of thought and effort into your village, it will show.
Take your time and use your imagination. If you try to build a village as fast as you can, it won’t look good and people will not want to join. We’re more interested in protecting a few well-designed, attractive buildings than several identical cobblestone cubes.
Plugins & Features
VillageCraft incorporates an array of plugins that complete the player experience. For a full list, type /plugins in-game.
The economy platform is created by Essentials. Players can earn money by selling minerals, farmed goods, or loot, either to other players or back to the server using Showcase. Showcase allows players to create item displays that other players can then interact with to purchase. Qualia has a large marketplace where players can go to either purchase or sell items or materials.
Lockette allows players to use signs to safely lock their chests, doors, gates, furnaces and dispensers, so nobody else can use them. Fun fact: If you place a Lockette sign on an iron door, you don’t need a switch to open it.
Village protection is made possible by WorldGuard. Apart from creating protected regions, WorldGuard allows us to block things like creeper and TNT block damage, fire spreading, enderman grief, etc.
Admins and moderators are here to help. We will not police you and will rarely intervene. On VillageCraft, banning is a last resort.
