**21/05/2017 UPDATE: This Comp has been extended until the 5th June**

Basically, was having a gander today and only like 1/3rd of you are anywhere near completion. Get your act together guys.

I have one more thing to try and motivate you: There will be prizes for top 3 builds. One may be a game. Who knows, really? Well I do but thats not really the point here. Just finish your builds.

Surprise Build Comp!

Starts: Tuesday the 9th May
Ends: Sunday the 21st May

Theme: National Identity/Culture

Can be undertaken in pairs or as a single pringle

(Plots are 200x200, will start off with grass floor but if you ask nicely I can change that for you but I will only do this *once* per plot.)

Hello, Hello, Hello fellow Brothercraftians!

I ken, I ken: "Ren, you're especially jovial today, this is strange. Please stop. I don't like it."

Well, in light of the fact that I am now officially free from exams for the summer (In your face everyone else, I win, nahnahnahanahnah) and the great mood it's put me in I have been persuaded by some members of the community to hold a last minute CMP build competition!

So, starting tomorrow (Tuesday 9th of May) you have ~2 week to build something surrounding the theme of your nationality!

As a more internationally-friendly way of celebrating Europe Day I want to know what makes you proud to be -insert nationality here-, I want to feel your patriotism seeping from every block you place, I want to be smacked in the face by the pride you have for your country and the love you have for your people. Any Brexit jokes will result in an automatic disqualification and I will kill you <3

Now, this is a pairs competition, and you can choose your pairs (I ken I joked about choosing for you but that's effort.) however if you want to take this on as a solo mission you do that. (Also Block, Thub you can pair together but I'll be judging you more harshly - I mean same goes for all BT ;) I'm not mean I'm fair.)

To enter, all you need to do is drop me a message either in game or on here (or just pop a comment on this post) telling me your pair and the nationality you are representing and I'll give you a plot.

It'll probably be Syn and I judging (So if you want to pander to the Brits go ahead... I mean not if you're not British... That wouldn't be *your* nationality... but still, giving us some tea and caek as I oversee may not go the wrong way ;) I mean... bribery is wrong, and you can't bribe SAs/CMs)

Also Keagie said he may join, so bug him about it if he's on - I wanna see the owner build. (Although he is busy with exams do don't bug him too much. That's my job.) (You can't just build a sheep Skegs, that's unoriginal. I want at least a popty ping and an ambiwlans. If we're lucky we may even see an in-game rendition of Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch. I'm counting on you Keagie. Blow me away.)

Quick Update

Skegnas48 a posted May 5, 17

Hey folks,

Just a quick update to reiterate why things haven't really been happening recently and to let you all know who you need to take all of your issues to!

As with many of you, a lot of the staff are in the midst of exams, particularly the upper staff (Super Admins) and myself. That means that things can't really be added or changed server-side for the time being. However, we have some cool ideas up our sleeves for after exams, so don't worry!

Finally, I just wanted to mention that as I am currently sitting my university exams as well, I won't be able to put the server first. Therefore, staff have had a timetable arranged for some time so that things don't get borkeded too much. So until the 9th May (next Tuesday), Monkey will be the go to person if everything breaks and after that until the end of my exams about 10 days later, Ren will be the go to person if the server becomes sentient and tries to take over the world. Of course, that doesn't mean that these are the first people you should go to if you have a problem or need help, the rest of staff are always happy to help and if they can't then a message will be passed on to someone who can as always. :-)

Good luck to everyone sitting exams,

Brothercraft Presents Internet Safety

Hey guys and gals, It’s Monkeh here. I’m just here to be that person and remind everyone to be safe online. That goes for those young beautiful monkeys and old lazy sheep. Never give out personal information to someone you don’t know.

In addition you should never share your minecraft account password with anyone, One for the account’s security, and two most servers won’t unban you just because “My friend was on my account when that happened, it wasn’t me” so be safe and keep your accounts secure.

Going along with that you shouldn’t give out information like full names or addresses to people you don’t know, and NEVER agree to meet someone you don’t know regardless of who they claim to be. And when giving out emails, Skypes or other social media (Facebook is boring anyways) make sure it is someone you trust with whatever information is available through those, time zones, ages, cities, and even phone numbers can be public even on skype if you have it set that way! So be sure to check your privacy settings on all social platforms.

TL;DR: Make sure to be smart online and not give out personal information to people.

 

One last thing. We here at the staff are aware that people are not always as they seem (Skegs isn’t a real sheep). If you are having issues whether that be at home, school, or personal issues with your identity, self esteem or otherwise we encourage you to find a close friend or family member to confide in and talk to about what is going on in your life and what troubles you, there are also multiple free call help hotlines to help people who are going through hardships in their lives, which I will list below for those who are interested.

Alternatively if you feel there is absolutely no one for you to go to we at the Brothercraft staff team are here for you. Below will be listed direct contact information and names for anyone in need of help. Do not feel obligated to add or talk to us, but you are free to for anything (We are pretty cool people). All conversations will stay completely confidential between you and the staff member (Unless you wanna post a funny comment we make on twitter) however, your first port of call should be a trusted friend or family member if at all possible.

TL;DR: If you need help talk to a friend or family member, call a help hotline or talk to us, we are here for you. (see contact info below).

 

CONTACT INFORMATION:

Monkeh: Daniel - Skype: ZeeMonkeyKing

Ren: Lauren - Skype: Ren3697mc

Skegs: Keagan - Message on website

Ark: Jack - Skype: live:jack.sealey_2

Hera: Nessa, Trans - Skype: aaron.hill5428

Note - While we do have contact information listed above, we have taken measures to minimize our personal risk. We at brothercraft staff still do not encourage giving out personal or contact information to untrusted individuals or groups.

Below are contact resources for thoughs dealing with hardships, most are for US and UK citizens, to find help centers for your country follow the instructions below.

Examsiedoodles

Skegnas48 a posted Mar 23, 17

That dreaded time of the year has come again when most staff and many players have their end of year exams. One can only hide away in Minecraft for so long before the dreaded demon of a degree or school catches up to you. This, of course, means that many of us cannot commit as much time as we would otherwise like to the server and playing (I know I'm far behind where I should be with notes). Therefore, expect a decreased staff presence on the servers over the next month or two. Staff are all volunteers and it has always been an important part of the role to make sure to put real life first and something that I've actively encouraged in my time as Owner, and now is no exception. We've made sure to make each other aware of exam times and I will be coming up with a rota of 'staff member to go to if there is an issue' while others are busy doing much more boring things.

If you do have a problem then, naturally, make sure to find one of us. If no staff are online then you are welcome to message one of us through the website but bear in mind that response times will likely be slower. Also, do not be afriad to message any of us, as even if that staff member doesn't have time to deal with it, then they can pass a message onto other staff that are available to deal with it in our staff chat.

Thanks in advace for all your patience and see you on the 17th May c-:

BC Wiki!!

Skegnas48 a posted Mar 13, 17

Hey folks,

I promised you guides for MassiveLock and Crazy Enchantments and here they are! Staff have put in a lot of work to bring you the new BC Wiki!!

BC Wiki is a collation of guides and information pages that will be made to help players with getting plugins to work and with gameplay features on BC. You can get to it by following the link at the top right of the website. From there if you use the drop down 'Wiki Menu' and click on page list then you can browse the different guides made on a range of topics. If you have an problem with a plugin then this should answer all of your questions!

There'll also be a forum made about it in the near future, so you can suggest new topics and help contribute ideas to them. Remember to comment on the wiki pages if you spot a mistake or just want to say how great it is!

1.11!

Skegnas48 a posted Mar 5, 17

Hey Folks,

Just an update to let you know that the servers will be running on Minecraft version 1.11.2! I'm currently waiting for the host to sort that out for us but there are a couple of issues with updating, these are of course, plugins not working. Therefore, we've had to remove a couple of plugins: Custom Enchantments and LWC (the chest autolock thing) have been removed. Don't fret though! We have replacements! Also just a side note, sorry for no warning with this update, I wasn't sure if I'd even have time to do it today.

Custom Enchantments: This has been removed completely as the Dev has given up and run off to Barbados (ok maybe not that second part) but is replaced by Crazy Enchantments. There are differences in the way these two work. The main difference is that unless I'm missing something in the config (I've quadrupal checked) YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO GET THE ENCHANTS FROM USING AN ENCHANTING TABLE! Instead you will need to use /ce and choose one of the common, rare or legendary options which will give you a randomised book. Right clicking with the book over your desired item will apply the ce to it. You can also remove enchants (with some chance of failure) and combine books from the /ce menu. There will be a guide going up on the website over the next few days but until then if you ask either myself, Monkey or Ren. With this ALL ITEMS WITH OLD PURPLE CES WILL BE REPLACED BY AN ADMIN OR ABOVE IF YOU BRING IT TO US FOR THE MONTH AFTER THIS POST GOES UP, THERE IS NO LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF ITEMS YOU CAN GET REPLACED SO DON'T FRET ABOUT YOUR GOD GEAR. Some enchants are not the same and in that case the best option will be applied.

LWC: This completely conked out with 1.11 and proceeded to take a few other plugins with it as long as it was present. Therefore, we have moved to MassiveLock (which comes highly recommended). However, this plugin is quite tricky to use at first and once again a guide will be going up on the website in the near future (sensing a theme here c-; ). The thing to note with this plugin is that ANY CHESTS OUTSIDE OF A GRIEFPREVENTION OR SPECIFIC WORLDGUARD CLAIM WILL BE UNLOCKED BY DEFAULT (including at the market). This means that you will actively have to lock each chest (I know...). This can be a bit tricky to do as mentioned, so I suggest that for all private chests (ones only you will access, e.g. chests at your base) you use /lock create and then either /lock punch or /lock tool to apply the lock (left click to apply and right click to remove). With any shops, public or donation chests (yes it allows all of those options!) then you should use /lock create [put a name relating to the chest here (e.g. stoneshop)], use the punch or tool command to apply the lock and then use /lock mode edit [public/donation/shop]. This last command will turn all of the chests with the same name as the previous chest you just locked to the specified type. You will also see some particles denoting what type of chest it is (red = private, yellow = shop, purple = donation and green = public), these can be turned off with /lock visualize. Bear in mind that each lock will cost you $3 (each sign or anything attached to the chest that can be locked adds another $3). Once again, ask myself if you need anymore help with it until the guide is up.

New Additions: Finally, some new additions. As requested by Oscar, sky islands have been reintroduced. These can be accessed using /island. If you need any further help with that plugin then your best option is /island help as I haven't had too much time to play around with it. Do let staff know if there are any issues. We'll also be looking to putting another type of minigame on the server in the near future, but for now that's spoilers ;-)
