DFTBA

Server Event Snowbrawl Teams!
With only a few hours left to go, we have our teams selected for Snowbrawl this evening. However, we have had to modify the competition a bit due to busy schedules of players and conflicts with being able to participate.

We only have 2 teams, but we will brawl nonetheless!
Snowflakes:
  • zombiedragon2001
  • TerBobornator06
  • tomsk31
  • ArdentWildfire
  • Bfq2011
Icicles:
  • Pikabang
  • ThatRedhead
  • Aquabreeze
  • TimeSorceror
  • Nodred
  • Star.Elements
I'm sure there will be players that will show up. So we may have more teams or we will even these ones out!

The competition will still happen in a series of 5 competitions. The best out of 5 wins. :) Winners receive a commemorative snowball and $5,000 llamas. Losers receive a commemorative snowball.

The arena is located at /warp snowbrawl. If you want to practice do /pb join. Do be aware that if you have potion effects, they may disappear. XP may or may not retain. During the competition, we will take note of what XP you have and restore it in case it does not return after it is over.

We will see you tonight at 8pm EST with your snow face one! :D Goooood luck!

Buycraft

For the past few weeks, we've had a few issues with our Buycraft configuration, permissions, and connection to Paypal to process transactions. After working with Buycraft support and Hank's team in Missoula, we were finally able to get everything restored to working order this past week! Thank you to everyone for being incredibly patient, especially those who had payment issues. If you have any further issues with Buycraft payments, please submit a modreq in game so we can take a look.

In celebration of this and the wrap up of P4A today, the entire store will be 16% off this whole week if you use the coupon code P4A2016! Here's a reminder of what your kind and generous donations go towards each year:


Vote Shop

The shop is now live! As a thank you to you guys for voting for us, the vote shop tokens store is now back and better than ever. There are familiar items like tags, spawns, and xp. And also some new items like the Crate de Awesome key and 1 hour of flying! Do /voteshop in game and check it out!

These were heavily requested perks, so we are happy to announce that they're back for good! Extra homes will be 100,000 llamas, up to 5 extra and extra creative plots will be 150,000 llamas, up to 3 extra for a total of 4 on the Creative Server.

In 2013 we started this event...

In 2014 the Christmas House gave out goodies...

In 2015 the Polar Express (in oddly Hogwartian colors) delivered presents from the North Pole...

And now, in 2016, we are proud to announce...

The Collectible Christmas Town!

Every day from the 1st of December to the 25th, we will deliver a new holiday-themed trinket at the calendar. Each day will also see a new building or construct appear, until on the 25th when it will stand as a complete town.

To get there, simply go to /server nerdcrafteria and /warp advent!
We look forward to seeing you all there!

Winter Secret Llama 2016



As the days get shorter and chillier, it signals the beginning of Nerdcrafteria's Annual Gift Exchange: Secret Llama!

Secret Llama is like other Secret Santa gift exchanges with the exception that it all happens in-game on Nerdcrafteria! You will be assigned another Nerdcrafter to whom you will give 3 gifts to over the course of 3 weeks. Gifts can vary from chests full of renamed items, to substantial monetary endowments, intricate art or literary pieces, carefully crafted quests, to Buycraft packages, and so much more! And while you're secretly crafting presents for someone else, someone will be secretly creating presents for you!!

To participate, please follow these steps:

With Pokémon Sun and Moon coming to North America this very Friday we're excited to announce the theme of our next Staff Auction:

(Who would have thunk?)


Knowing some of you (and us) will basically disappear for a few days after getting your hands on one of the new games, we chose the date for the auction to be on

4PM EST

So about two weeks from now.

Until then, tell us... which games did you play? What's your favourite one so far? Are you gonna play Sun or Moon or both of them? Do you Go? Valor/Mystic/Instinct? Get some PokéTalk going! :)

Even Pikachu is excited for the auction:


Don't forget to also save up money on main! Keep an eye out for money/warrior/gatherer boons or maybe activate one or two yourself. Gotta catch all the money for chests!

See you at the auction house!

Maintenance/Issues Buycraft Outage
No-Internet-Gif.gif
Currently under investigation!

Please post a bug report if you've made a buycraft purchase in the last few days and didn't receive it. Be sure to keep your email receipt just incase we need more information.

Thank-you for your patience!

Howdy everyone~

The Minecraft 1.11 update has been officially released by Mojang! As usual, we don't have a concrete timeline on when the server will be switching over to 1.11, but this update is also on the smaller side so hopefully sooner rather than later! The main thing we always have to wait on is for the plugins we use to update to 1.11 too. As a reminder, if you are stuck on a Minecraft version and find yourself unable to connect to Nerdcrafteria, please read the information in this post: http://nerdcrafteria.com/threads/stuck-on-a-minecraft-version-read-this.8102/.

If you want more information on the new and shiny things coming in 1.11, the Minecraft Wiki has a great compilation on the update: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/1.11.

Sincerely,
The Staff of Nerdcrafteria

The winners are:
-IntroJet
-nonfiction8
-PerfectFlaw

Winners have already received their prizes. Congratulations! :D

[Trick or Treating]
[​IMG]

All modreqs for candy counting were due by November 2nd. There were a total of 12 treats that players could receive from staff. Some candies were more elusive than others.

With a stunning 11 treats, FIREALLCAPS has won the special Halloween elytra!... not that they needed another one. :D

CONGRATULATIONS!

[Haunted House]
[​IMG]
We received 4 very spooky haunted houses. It made it difficult to choose just one. Each build was unique.
We did eventually choose one, though.


Pagophilus entered a very spoopy, Victorian inspired Haunted House! It will be pasted onto the main map. When? Guess...
Important Updates VIP Packages are now live!

Lifetime VIPs now have access to /nick. You can do /nicky help for a full list of commands.

On the Hub Server, you can do /uc menu main to see the full list of all your new particles, pets, mounts, gadgets, and hats!

Kits have also been added to the main server! Use /kit to see the full list. Fly kit will give you 1 hour of flying time per day. Additionally, Monthly VIPs have access to the VIP Cria Kit while Lifetime VIPs have access to the VIP Llama Kit. Each will have their respective goodies, including keys for the new Crate de Awesome!

To use those new Crate keys, find the Crate de Awesome at spawn and right click on the chest for your rewards. Each kit will also have tokens to hand in for boons. To claim your boon, make a /modreq and ask for assistance on activating it on the server!

We are still having issues with voting and the new Tokens plugin for now, so the vote shop is still down at the moment. We are working as best as we can on getting it back up for you guys, so stay tuned.

Reminder that VIP World is closing next week! Get your Build Save Form in soon!

As always, if you notice anything that you think it's working correctly, please submit a Bug Report so we can take a look.

Thanks,
The Staff of Nerdcrafteria
