    Craftblock's weekly builds edition #5
    This week's theme has been 'Futuristic' and this week we've had the least submissions out of all the build comps so far. I'd like to know why this is so we can improve it for you and if you can leave comments below explaining what you'd like changed and what we can do to improve it that would be fantastic and largely appreciated. Thanks to the four players that submitted their builds and the standards of the four builds that got submitted are of an amazing standard and if only every other week had submissions like these.

    This week's submissions!
    - 6ae's Pizza Planet

    Submission Description:
    Toy Story is one of my favorite movies. Upon hearing that the theme this week was futuristic, I brainstormed for a little while and I thought about rockets and aliens, space, etc. I was going to make a really big planet but that's close to impossible in one week's time - so the next best thing? Pizza Planet! Inside is an actual pizza cafe and arcade with a claw game and even a DJ! You can even go inside the Pizza Planet Delivery Truck!

    Hello People of CraftBlock!

    I don't speak on here very often, however I'm here to bring you a short update with regards to all the servers. Over the past few days I've been working on cross-server chat between Main and Chocoblock (also CraftGames, but that's news for another day). This work has finally finished, chat is synced between servers and you can even use /msg and /r to private chat to users on the other server, the only issue is pressing tab to complete a name does not work, so you will need to type part or all of the users name on the other server.

    In addition to this, I have implemented a proxy plugin which sends join and leave messages to all servers instead of just the individual one that the player joined. This plugin also has a feature which will announce when a player switches servers as well instead of the standard leave/join messages. Once we figure out how to add colours to these messages, that will happen so they stand out from other messages and the chat looks less cluttered.

    I am aware some players play on Chocoblock to escape all the chat and such, so don't fret, you can change the chat to local via /gtoggle (do keep in mind, it'll make other players on Choco talking to players on main look insane though haha).

    As normal, you must be whitelisted on Chocoblock to join that server, if you do happen to be white-listed, you can join via "/server Chocoblock" and to return to main, just enter "/server Craftblock".

    That's about it really, so.. Enjoy!...

    Hello Crafters!

    Here is a small update on the upcoming changes that's related to ranks and economy.

    Remember, none of this will happen until AFTER we're on 1.9!

    Ranks
    This is an update on the survival ranks (Before Ambassador).

    The admins and I have been discussion this for quite a bit, we've finally found a good system to use as well as a nice set of ranks. Here is what we'll be doing.

    • The goal here is to introduce a system where the player is more productive and has more to do and won't be "bored" after playing for a short while. We want to enhance the survival of these ranks.
    • We're going to totally redo the rank structure. Blockling, Builder, Citizen, Trusted will be non-existent.
    • We're going to use a half auto-ranking system and half application system. This update only includes ranks for the auto-ranking system, we're still working on the application ranks.

    Ranking System
    This is a rank ladder that introduces two types of ranks, "Main Ranks" and "Sub Ranks". Each "Main Rank" (excluding the first rank) will have two "Sub Ranks" before it.

    New Player Rank -> Sub Rank -> Main Rank 1 -> Sub Rank -> Main Rank 2 -> Sub Rank -> Main Rank 3.

    Main Rank: A rank that has a collection of permissions and perks.
    Sub Rank: Limited, or very few perks added.

    This rank system allows us to extend it with more ranks in the future, it rewards players with achievements and it's only a little bit...

    Announcing the winner for this month's winter build competition !
    I'd just like to start by thanking all you that took the time and effort to submit your builds as they were all fab and fitted the theme extremely well. However the number of people building it the comp world didn't correlate with the amount of submissions we had which is a shame as I've seen some great builds there that weren't entered. The winner will be getting getting a forum award , a colored nick name , their head on the wall of fame in the new spawn and two months of creative if they don't already have it !

    Congratulations to "Xomee" for winning this week's build competition !

    Craftblock's weekly builds Christmas edition #4

    For the festive month of December we decided it would be nice to theme our build comp around the festivities that take place around that time of year and allow you to create a Christmas themed town with creative to allow you to use a larger array of materials and to make things easier for survival players. Sadly this month we've only received six submissions despite allowing you all one months built time so next week lets hope we get as many of you participating as possible. Thank you to all that submitted your builds this month and they all look great so I look forward to announcing the winners.

    This month's candidates:
    - Amazing_boodles' Santa and Rudolph statues !
