Server Event June is Pride Month!!!

Hello everyone, and Happy Pride Month!!

Each year, Pride is celebrated to honor the LGBTQIA+ community - raising visibility and championing validity. Pride is celebrated in June because of the Stonewall Riots, a series of protests and riots in June of 1969 that were in response to unethical raids of gay bars and clubs. Their bravery in taking a stand is largely considered to be the dawn of the modern LGBTQIA+ rights movement, and we continue to celebrate Pride in June as a result.

This month, we wanted to offer an opportunity to learn more about our diverse LGBTQIA+ community through a fun scavenger hunt! We have hidden 13 different Pride flag hearts around /Explore, each representing a portion of the LGBTQIA+ community. Your mission is to find all 13, collect a token from each, and then place them all in a chest to claim your prize! Simply modreq by the chest so that a staff member can verify your tokens and write down your name.

The deadline for completion modreqs is 11:59 p.m. Eastern on June 12th. Prizes will be awarded after the update, so don't have to worry about not being able to transfer them to the new map!

Thanks everyone, enjoy the hunt, we hope you learn something along the way!
A Whole New World Sentimental Chest Requests!
Hello everyone!

Our sentimental chest system is now up and running staff-side, so we can start accepting your chests for the upgrade! As always with transfers of schems between worlds, please know that we will do our absolute best (and have tested this extensively with no issues) but there is always a risk that items may be lost. If there are things that hold particular sentimental value, please screenshot them so that you will have the memory of them should the worst happen.

How to Submit your Chest:
In order to have your sentimental chest saved, please submit a /modreq in game standing right by the chest. In that modreq, please note that it is a sentimental chest request, and one of the following options for if there are problems with your sentimental chest contents:
1) Refuse Chest - This option means we will close the modreq without saving the chest, and let you know what the problematic items are so that you can replace them. Please note that if you choose this option, then forget to submit an updated chest, we will be unable to save a chest for you. THIS OPTION IS UNAVAILABLE AFTER MAY 28TH to help ensure we save at least some items for you.
2) Remove Items - This option means we will remove the problematic items from the chest that we save. We will note what items were removed in the modreq response, but you won't be able to take the chest back and make further edits. THIS IS THE ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE AFTER MAY 28TH.
An example of a senti chest modreq would look like: /modreq Senti Chest ready! Please Refuse Chest with issues. Thanks! or /modreq Senti Chest ready! Please Remove Items if they're problematic. Thanks!

Chest Guidelines:
  • They must be a SINGLE normal chest - no double chests, ender chests,...
Attention students of Nerdcrafteria and friends of Nerdcrafterians, this is an announcement inviting all of you to join us for our Graduation and Prom Extravaganza!

Fill out this form to walk at graduation! Please have it filled out by May 21st so that Flaw can clarify any pronunciations and we have time to prepare your robes.

We encourage you to invite friends and family, and to feel free to dress up for the occasion (although cap and gown will be provided for our graduates during the ceremony).

A quick guide on how to join the server:

Select New in the top left, and create a new installation set to 1.13.2 on the Version dropdown menu. Name it Graduation/Prom (or whatever you like,) ignore the other text boxes, and click Create

A Whole New World 1.15 Upgrade Infopost!
Hello everyone!

I apologize for the delay in getting this post out to everyone - we're hard at work behind the scenes, and suddenly it was Friday! Below you can find a link to the video recording of our Town Hall. I'll also be laying out the key points/questions about this upgrade in this post so you guys have it as a reference.

So, first things first... We're Upgrading to 1.15!

Yes! The lands of bees and composting and campfires will soon be ours.

The Server will go down for upgrade on June 13th, and the refreshed Server will come up on June 20th. This upgrade will be a complete wipe, meaning that asteroids, the main map, and VIP world will all stay in 1.13, and won't move to 1.15 with us (more on this below in the FAQs).

After the reset, we plan to have the following worlds: Economy Map (main map) and its associated Mineworld; Skyblock; and Survival (survival may come shortly after reset depending on staff timelines).

We will also be updating some of our rules and rule enforcement systems - both on the Economy server and across the server as a whole - to ensure they're more clear and easily understood by all involved.

Finally, our website will be getting a facelift! We want to make our website more accessible to new players and users, and shift our community interaction almost completely to Discord. We will also be revamping our social media as a part of this process, so that folks outside the community can stay up to date on what's happening here!

Why is this reset happening?
Minecraft maps reset every couple of years in order to free up server space and refresh player interest. As the current map was a bit rushed as a result of external circumstances, we decided to reset a bit sooner than usual in order to boost player interest and give ourselves an opportunity to really develop a map.
Why can't I keep my...
Important Updates Asteroid Request Form
As we continue the map reset & upgrade process, we want to ensure you're able to keep your asteroid for sentimental reasons!

We are offering two options:
  • Option 1
    • We will export your entire asteroid. You choose one set of coordinates as the location where the export will be based. Stand on your asteroid where you want the paste to happen.
    • Due to complexity and size of some asteroids, this may be more prone to data loss or corruption. Please consider option 2, which will export a smaller area of your asteroid.
  • Option 2
    • You choose two coordinates that surround a portion of your asteroid that you wish to save (a specific building or monument, etc).
In both cases, please use F3 to locate in-game coordinates. Please double check your coordinates before entering, as staff will enter them exactly while exporting.

  1. Request your asteroid to be saved today through May 20, 2020. All you need to do is fill out this form!
  2. Staff will download and delivery your schematics through May 27, 2020.
  3. Players have until June 3, 2020 to report any issues with their schematics to the staff.
We will post a tutorial on how to import your schematics into single player soon!
Server Event UPDATE Town Hall!
Hey everyone!

We are SO excited to announce that things are moving forward on an Upgrade of the server this summer! We will be covering a bunch of the fun details, as well as answering your questions, at a server Town Hall in Discord on May 9th at 3 p.m. EST. It will be recorded in case you can't make it, but please do your best to attend, especially if you have questions!

Can't wait!
Our scientific teams have received word from the ground crews that some small men and women in green outfits have been spied sneaking around Planet Cl0-V3r. Reports indicate that they're leaving behind gifts for those who are able to find them, or where they've been. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for their presents!

There is an example of one of their gifts to the left of the Spawn House in /explore for reference purposes. Our scientific teams will ping in the Discord (linked in the main menu above!) when they detect a new gift may have arrived on the planet. You needn't ping for your reward, just dive in! Our brief chat with the gifters indicates they only intend to be here for a short while, so get on while you can! Best of luck!
Important Updates Server Upgrade Poll
Hello players! We are excited for the changes in the new versions of Minecraft, and we thank you for your understanding while we work through the process of figuring out how best to upgrade our server over time.

We understand that you want these new features ASAP, but we have to balance this with the stability of the plugins we use to keep things running smoothly.

The Admins have worked hard on this issue and believe that we can move to a newer version "soon" and keep most of the functionality that you've come to enjoy!

We're considering an upgrade to 1.14 to incorporate some new biomes if we're able to ensure a stable server build.

But we need your input!
We know you've worked hard on your creations, and we want to protect them if they're important to you. But if you're feeling kind of meh on everything at the moment, we can fly off to a new planet and start fresh!

While we will do everything in our power to maintain everything if you choose to transfer the map(s), chest content may not transfer. Please keep that in mind for all the options listed in the poll.

If you have questions, please leave them in the comments below so we can answer them to the best of our ability!
Hello everyone!

You may or may not be aware of the amazing event Nerdfighters and their friends do every year called Project For Awesome, or P4A. This event is a massive charity fundraiser that in years past has raised millions of dollars for amazing causes supported by real Nerdfighters around the globe. You can learn all about it here!

Just like last year, we as a Nerdcrafteria community wanted to participate in our own special way! As all of the purchases in our Buycraft store are sent directly to the Foundation to Decrease World Suck, we would like to set up fundraising goals for our own server during P4A. These goals are ONLY active for the duration of P4A, you can track the timing on the P4A website linked above. Here are the goals and their rewards:

Tier 1: $100
When this tier is reached, everyone on the server receives an exclusive [P4A2019] tag!

Tier 2: $250
When this tier is reached, everyone on the server receives 24 hours of unlimited fly!

ONLY Buycraft purchases will count towards these tiers, so that we can track the contributions from our community (without being all creepy on y'alls other methods of payment lol)! We can't wait to see what you guys can do in a weekend. Be sure to check in to the P4A livestream to keep up with the fundraising of the Nerdfighter community!

Progress Tracker:

There are P4A exclusive Buycraft rewards available here! These include two individual candy-themed banners, and a candy store banner...
