Important Updates Amendments to the Town Rules
As you guys know, the new town rules recently went into effect, and because of their broad and expansive implications, we obviously got a few things that didn't quite work - as a result, we talked over things and figured out some amendments that will hopefully work better for you guys. These are the amendments to the rule that go into effect immediately:

Regarding the bedrock rule:

Apply for exceptions for bedrock rule, even if applied the staff will state how deep you still need to be on each plot, minimum. Application section will be added to the forum town app, with an option to select whether or not you want to apply for it, and why you should get it.

Regarding apartment rules:

1. If a town wishes to establish an apartment complex or building, they need to have planned a minimum of 100 apartments, across either one or a series of buildings, for each time they wish to add apartments. They can plan more, up to 500, but the minimum has to be met or the apartments must be re-planned so that 100 can be built.
2. Apartments must be no smaller than 6 blocks of space and no bigger than 38 blocks of space.
3. Prices must be no cheaper than $500 and no more expensive than $5,000.

Regarding Plot Reservations:

In order to reserve a plot through a town as a promotion, you have to sign two copies of a book with the terms of the plot reservation agreement. The person reserving the plot must sign both books, and one book is given to each the reserver and the town Treasurer. Towns can decide reserving price and final plot price arrangements, but whatever is established must be agreed on by both parties.

Regarding Non-Profit Fundraisers and Fundraisers for individual people:

- Make a post in the main worlds section about fundraising for non-town purposes (specifically, nonprofit organizations).
- Non-profits can raise money as long as it goes to the players again in the form of public warps, events, prizes and games.

Just putting these most recent updates all together in one quick news post:

- There is now an option, due to player request, to watch an entire forum section! All you have to do is navigate to the forum you want to watch and click the "Watch Forum" link at the top, right-hand side, under the Search bar. It looks like this:

Thanks to Cory_, our eternally AFK admin, for finding this wonderful mod for us to use on the forums! :)

- We're doing a comprehensive sweep of all towns, player and mod alike, and we've uncovered close to 500 new plots (with more being uncovered still) for you to purchase! These plots range in price from 10k, all the way up to 100k, so feel free to browse - there might even be a plot available in a town where you don't have a plot yet, but have wanted to get one for awhile, such as Nerdville or Southtown.

- Watertown has expanded! We've added about 60-70 new plots, as well as some apartment-style complexes, to a whole new bubble of Watertown! I know we said we wouldn't expand, but so many people wanted to get a plot there that we really couldn't bear to deny you guys much longer. But hurry, there aren't many plots available, so it's first come, first serve!

- The creative spawn competition has received no entries as of yet... are you guys working on your spawns for Creative? Since no one has been up for applying yet, I might raise the stakes by throwing a prize on top of the whole thing... Keep posted, and remember, entries are due by the 28th of February! The thread for the Creative Competition can be found right here, and remember, entries must be submitted via the "Forms" button at the top, left-hand side of the screen. :)

- We've been experiencing some strange server occurrences, related to various things...
Downtime (Resolved) Server Downtime
EDIT: Server is back up. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Important Updates Old Creative Plots Restored!
Creative plots from the old map have now been restored, with two exceptions, so you can go ahead and grab those now if you want! All you need to do is make a /modreq in-game asking for your plot to be transferred to Creative, and a mod will come in to assist in restoring it to you. If you have a specific placement preference, put your modreq in while you're standing in roughly the middle of where you want it. We can't do it too picky, so you'll have to bear with us if it's a couple blocks off - these are massive worldedits we're doing, and the more we do them, the more of a chance they'll crash the server.

The two exceptions to the plot restoration will receive private forum messages as to why their plots cannot be restored. We apologize for this inconvenience.

We now have a Book Club on If you don't have an account yet, it's easy to set one up, and once you do, join us in reading some great books over the next year. We will start off with "The Fault in our Stars" by John Green. But we will be looking to you for future books. Share your favorite books, find new favorites, and talk with your fellow nerdfighters about all the good reads. JOIN US!

Effective immediately, the following rules and regulations go into effect governing both existing towns and newly created towns. Forum sections will be made shortly for all currently existing towns, and all player towns will need to bring their councils into regulation listed below within the next week, or moderators will step in to handle the situation.​
Please read very carefully through these regulations, as they cover things that old towns need to adhere to as well! The only grandfathered exceptions are as follows:​
- Currently existing plots that are larger than the 23x24 limit will be allowed to continue existing just fine, with no fines or concerns there. Further plots being made must conform to the new dimensional specifications.​
- Prices currently existing outside of the listed ranges (precious few, if any) must be lowered/raised as appropriate in order to comply within the next week if they are not sold, but can continue to currently price above or below those prices until that week has passed (February 1st is the time when this goes into effect).​
Moderators are also allowed to make towns, but with a few exceptions:​
- No money can be raised by them - players must raise it all themselves. Moderators can manage fundraisers, but cannot contribute funding of their own at any time.​
- They will have their forum sections pre-opened for them so they can post records for the initial 8 million fundraising, this is merely a courtesy so that the staff can keep an eye on things. Normal towns will not have their forum sections opened until they pay their initial 8 million appraisal costs and start paying off their town.​
Further questions will be answered below. Please, read the whole thing before you ask questions, because it's pretty likely we will have covered it!​
A small announcement to those parties to whom it pertains:

You may or may not notice that, in an effort to start bringing towns into compliance with the new set of rules we plan to release pretty soon regarding town creation and management, we will begin pulling all non-mayors of a town out of the "owners" category of the region and placing them into the "members" category of the region. This affects absolutely nothing about your build rights or anything of that nature, and you are free (at least for now) to continue to enforce your own standards as far as who is above who in any particular council, at the discretion of the mayor. This process should be complete relatively quickly.

Moderator-run towns will be expected to comply of their own accord, so those towns may change at different times. All player-run towns will be changed within the next 24 hours.

Important Updates Creative is back! :D
Hey, guys! Some of you have no doubt already noticed, but guess what?


This means all sorts of exciting things...

1. You're no doubt wondering now about the state of your old plots. Rest assured, they're all still quite safe and sound and will be transferred shortly. We will be processing the applications you guys submitted ten thousand years ago at this thread. If you STILL haven't submitted an application, the thread is still open, so you need to get your butt over there and complete one as quickly as possible! Once we finish the transfers, we're tossing the map out, so you might lose your stuff if you drag your feet.

2. Creative plots are, of course, 256x256 now! This means all sorts of new building opportunities, but with it come some challenges, of course. Avoiding laggy constructions, such as massive glass-filled buildings, or giant redstone constructs would be amazing - the more of those we have, the less fun everyone else is able to have, so please be courteous with your construction. :)

3. Spawn is looking quite bare right now, so we need to spruce it up... with a CREATIVE COMPETITION, of course! There's a post right here about how you can submit to the judges a spawn that we will be able to use for Creative, just like the normal world! We're looking for the best and the brightest, and I know you guys will deliver, so start sending in those submissions! :D

4. We're glad to bring Creative back to you guys, and we're sorry it took so long, so that's why we've waived the 5k fee for everyone to get a plot. Simply go into the world and type...
We've finished up early testing, and we're ready to open the server up to you guys!
First things first... not everyone can join, but don't worry it's not as bad as you think :)

The server will have a white-list (meaning only the people on the list can join) which will be managed manually by the staff.

How do I get on this 'white-list' you ask? There are 3 ways:

1. Purchasing Life-Time VIP

That's right! If you purchase (or have already purchased) Life-Time VIP, you will be granted access to the white-list.

2. Donating 25$ to the Foundation to Decrease World Suck

Head over to and under the FTB White-List section you will find the payment package.

3. Paying 350,000 Llamas

After much thought, we didn't want to restrict this server to only those who could 'afford' it. So if you play for enough time on Nerdcrafteria, you'll be able to join them rich folks too :D
(Either message an Admin or submit a /modreq when you're ready to make your payment)

Calemando, with the really open 4 level mall build!

After talking with the staff and looking at the comments on the video/Tumblr/here, we reworked the building's coloring a bit to fit a little better with Green Hills.

Calemando will be getting a suite in the Green Hills Apartments building, as will the runner up, who was only 2 votes behind that, so congrats to egli as well! (I'll be adding a little extra to Calemando's prize, as soon as he GETS IN TOUCH WITH ME GUUUUURL.)

Thank you everyone for submitting builds, I had great fun looking at all of them and making that supermegafoxyawesomehot video with mah mad skillz!
