What is MagicaCraft?

MagicaCraft is a server that gives a player a wide variety of ways to play. It has both ranks and classes that are separate from each other. Classes are achieved using in game funds. Ranks are achieved by donated a set amount of money to the server at the website shop: http://magica.buycraft.net/. Magicacraft also has a dual currency system. There is the traditional currency of just raw cash which can to buy almost anything. The second currency is called gems. Gems can only be used to buy selected items which to use gems you have to use the command /gems shop. Magicacraft also features many events such lava fall and block defense.

About the Classes...

A newly spawned player can choose between one of our four classes, Mage, Assassin, Warrior, and Archer. Each class has its own unique abilities and items that the player can choose from.

Mage includes the abilities to cast spell which can be used in many circumstances including pvping and raiding. Some examples of these spells include the ability to refill a player's hunger, repair all items in a player's inventory, and the ability to fly. To cast a spell, it takes some supplies. Spells usually use redstone but some use more supplies such as coal or a rose. To cast spells you use the command /c (spellname), to see how many spells you have you use the command /c list, and finally to see what you need to cast the spell you use the command /c help (spellname).

August has almost come to an end, but there are still few more special features to come!

Progress:
Mage, Archer, and Assassin are fully functional and we plan on adding more to them in the near future. We're working on the abilities for Warrior in a way that is balanced but also beneficial to the user.

New Features:
Kiwi and Chaos have created a very nice tutorial room explaining everything you may need to know about your specific class. To get there go to /warp classes, and in each island you'll find a portal taking you to the respective tutorial room. The tutorial is a simple and newcomer-friendly.

Events Plugin
The event plugin will return soon with the same setup as it was before, however we do plan on adding loads more features when we have time.

Voting System
We've introduced a brand new rewards system rewards you based on your total votes on top of the normal daily rewards and random chances. When accumulating votes you'll be given various items such as God Apples, MagicaCrates, Gems, and much more. Type "/rewards" ingame to view the list of rewards.

Overview

Over the last few weeks, a lot of work has been put into the upcoming MagicaCraft update which is planned for release on Friday August 15th, 2014. This post will go in depth about our current progress and what to expect in the new update as well as a list of custom plugins to look forward to.

Structures

Almost all of the structures have been built including:
  • A brand new spawn (High FPS)
  • Many wilderness warps
  • A fully generated map with various custom biomes
  • A massive server shop (Also High FPS)
  • A Donator Shop
  • Enchantment Shop
  • Xp Shop
  • A unique way to select ranks
There are only a few things that we need to complete for the update including an arena (which will also be high FPS) and tutorial room.


Ranks and Classes

With this update MagicaCraft is overhauling the entire rank and classes system.
Note: Ranks and Classes and similar but different. Ranks are groups such as Hero, King, Mod, or Admin. Classes are groups such as Archer, Mage, Warrior, and Assassin. In other words: Paid ranks are no longer classes



Old to new rank Conversion
Eternal > Emperor
Mystic > King
Infernal > Legend
Ancient > Champion
Divine > Lord
Arcane > Hero
Warlord > Noble

Kits

We have gathered player feedback on kits and added redstone (and other magical reagents) and potions to kits. Overall many of the kits have been buffed but not...

On July 23, 2012 I started MagicaCraft not knowing what it would become. At the time servers were a lot smaller and way less competitive. There were no networks, no hubs, just standalone servers. I spent a few days working on the server then opened it publicly. Three months later MagicaCraft was the largest and number one server in the world without any advertising involved. This is because of its original ideas and content never seen on any other servers.

It's hard for me to believe that I have been running this server for two entire years with little outside help. Most issues the server had I figured out and fixed myself to make the server's experience almost seamless. There is a crazy amount of work I have done behind the server to keep it running for this long. I have done everything from writing complex plugins in order to make the server more entertaining to simply making backups to ensure you will still have your inventory the next time you log in. This server would not be what is if it wasn't for the community.

MagicaCraft has been keeping a steady average of around 30 players but the operation costs of the server exceed the income it receives. As I said when I released MagicaCraft 3.0, this was my last attempt to get players on again and it didn't work out too well. Today I planned on shutting down the server and quitting Minecraft forever. However, a few days ago a Developer came to me asking with a ton of ideas to improve MagicaCraft and bring it back to its...
