Hello all
I'm Brooke. I like reading tons of books, draw, sculpt and handcraft things I need/use myself as well as studying about different cultures and belief systems as far as oral stories from way back when.
I'm not very good with the whole pvp stuff. I like to build and terraform but I still need a lot of work to be at the level I want to be at as far as my skills go.
I've been homeschooled most of my young teenage life and don't have many friends at all, so I'm introverted and a stickler for rules (I don't like being fussed at so I don't break them to be fussed at) but have a creative mind and get distracted easily. I have many "Squirrel!" moments lol
I'm currently moving to a new place where I can hopefully have a new garden to go with all the animals I hope to raise (small farm)
As far as life in general, I forward to making friends and being helpful in any way I can, in everything, and hope to be a great deal helpful if I can join the server.
Hopefully one day I can become an archeologist so I can travel and discover the way things used to be and how they came to be now. If I can't do that and travel all over the world, hopefully I can still do it in my home country/continent. If that falls through then I'll be content being a farmer and fostering animals with special needs. <3

Here's to hoping everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Where's the LOVE/LIKE button?!

It's amazing to see a bit of history in a loving post from one of the big-wigs. <3 Confessions and affirmations are awesome and from the outside looking in (as a yet-to-be-Famcrafter? lol) that was one touching post. <3

Many Happy Returns!

Brooke <3

 You were the MOST trouble, Thoatt.  Probably the worst player that we had that didn't quite hit the banning point. Always just barely skirting the rules. Just enough that you were not technically doing or saying anything wrong.  I guess you turned out okay enough. Thanks for sticking around, Mr.Owner.   <33

It's been a crazy 10 years! It feels like yesterday when I joined to cause trouble >:D

We are lucky to have the most dedicated, patient, hard working, and compassionate staff anyone could ask for. To all our current and past staff: Thank you for being a part of our journey and continuing to make Famcraft a home <3

Looking back through our history, it's crazy to think of the number of people we've met over the years. Literally tens of thousands of players of all ages, 2 to 82, have passed through our doors. Whether they stay for 5 minutes or 10 years, we appreciate and value every single one. The shared emotions, stories, creativity, and friendship are unrivaled and a precious gift that we value beyond anything else. We hope that when you look back on Famcraft that you think fondly of your time here as we do.

Thank you everyone who has joined us on our path to 10 years! We look forward to the next 10 years and more!

Happy Birthday Famcraft!

 Happy Birthday Famcraft! Thank you all for our amazing first 10 years!

 We appreciate each and every one of you, staff and players alike for enriching our lives and being a part of Famcraft. We couldn't have done it without you.

 The past few years have been full of chaos, challenges and changes for all of us. Our owners and much of our staff team has seen a drastic reduction in available time to be present on the server. As a result  of this we've been able to accept less new players over the past many months. Even without the inclusion of new players, we've been striving the keep the server alive and well and maintain a safe and happy place for our current existing players.
  We are sorry to those of you who've not been able to get into the server as of yet. We are careful to only allow new players into the community when we are confident there is enough active staff to help new people become properly acquainted with our rules and the Famcraft gameplay experience. While we do keep  a close eye on chat and are here if needed, we have not have a lot of time to offer tours and help players get started on Famcraft lately. Hopefully, eventually things will settle down for some of us and we will be more available to assist new players.

 The past 10 years have been incredible. We've met some of the kindest, most caring people we will ever be lucky enough to know. We've formed lifelong bonds with many of our staff members and players. Several of our staff members have even had the opportunity to meet each other. A lot of us think of each other as family. We've all shared a common goal of maintaining a safe and happy place for players and their families. We hope to continue to be an island among servers for many years to come.

 I am not here and active in chat nearly as often as I want to be, but Famcraft is always in my heart. and on my mind.

 I'd like to get real sappy now and thank you all for what you've given us.

 Thank you to our Founders. The two players who originally founded Famcraft have moved on now. They have busy lives and families they take care of. We still greatly appreciate their contributions to the server. Their original vision included a safe server for players and their families with rules strict enough to keep everyone safe and a caring staff team to  enforce those rules and offer guidance and support to players. We appreciate that they wanted to offer this kind of world to the Minecraft community. In 2018, Famcraft was moved over to it's current owners who were long time staff members prior to becoming the permanent guardians of Famcraft.

 Thank you to the Owners of Famcraft. The people who own the physical hardware and maintain/upgrade the software and hardware and pay the bills associated with Famcraft. Even though we say they "own Famcraft" I know it's really the other way around. Famcraft owns their hearts and as much of their time as they can possibly devote to it. I don't think they'd have it any other way.
 I've personally witnessed the abundance of time and love they've put into maintaining the server for us. Sleepless nights working on server issues. The care and research that's gone into upgrading the hardware. The painstakingly written custom code for many of the plugins we use. The heartache of not being able to spend enough time with the community we love due to circumstances beyond anyone's control. Thank you, Thoatt and Kealper. We could not and would not be here without you.

 Thank you to the entire family of Famstaff - past and present. Every single one of you has contributed to getting us here to this 10 year mark. We've made it an entire decade thanks to you all. We've seen many staff members come and go over the years. Some were only with us for a few weeks, others have been here for years. Many have left informational builds, resources and beautiful displays our players still enjoy today. Everyone has had the same goal - keeping Famcraft a safe and happy place to be.
 Being staff on Famcraft is especially challenging. We have some pretty strict rules and it is always difficult have to correct players. No one likes having to ban someone who won't follow the rules. Banning isn't even the hard part. Our staff team has put in hundreds of combined hours offering tours and teaching players the basics of how to get around on the server. They've spent even more time offering gentle guidance, helping resolve conflicts between players and just enjoying the conversation and company of Famcrafter's when they just needed a friendly place to unwind. Many of our staff members check in throughout the days and nights from their phones and tablets even when they cant actively be on Famcraft. The current Famstaff team's selfless devotion is unparalleled. We'd be so lost without them. Several have been with us for many, many years now. They've kept us afloat when we could not be here ourselves. There are no words to explain what you mean to us. Thank you so much, Famstaff team. <333

 And last but far from least, our beloved Players. Yall are incredible. Every single one of you. Players join and leave. They play a few hours or a few years. Some come back months or years later. Some never return. One thing is for sure, we keep every block you guys place - unless of course you were griefing.. haha. But no, seriously, regardless of if you were here in 2012 or 2021 you can always log in and find your homes and areas just as you left them the last time you logged out. We keep these things safe because we care about you. We never want you to log in and find that the map has been reset or that your homes are gone.  So we guard them carefully and keep them ready for your return.
 Famcraft has never had a map reset. Even when we were forced to add a new map due to an update we kept the old map and have it linked as a separate, fully intact and easily accessible world for you all. It's still safely located on Famcraft today at /server classic.
 Many of our players have touched our lives in ways they will never realize. You wouldn't believe how often we quote players from years ago, or recall a fond memory of a build they shared. We are always excited to see players from long ago return to say hello. So many of you left as kids and now return to tell us you've graduated, or gotten married or even have children of your own. What an amazing world we share. Even many of our banned players are remembered fondly for what they said or contributed while they were still active players.
 Over the years, Famcrafters have made us laugh and cry, and at times growl with frustration. They've made us sigh. They caused us to lose sleep or gain compassion. They've opened our eyes to other ways of thinking and new ideas. They've given us reasons to alter rules, and add new ones. Famcraft players have never ceased to surprise us with their sneakiness, their cleverness, their kindness or their generosity. We never know what we are going to see when we log in. The good and the bad, we love it all. We love learning from yall.
 When we first started this adventure, we felt like we had so much to teach. As it turned out we had a lot to learn too- And we are still learning. Thank you, Famcrafters. Old and new, past, present and future players. We are here for you. We love you guys. Keep on Famcrafting.

 We are Famcraft.

 To those of you who never knew me. LUCKY!

 To those of you who've known me too well, you should have been expecting this long rambling post filled with sappy run-on sentences and scattered thoughts and ideas. I'm glad I didnt let you down.

 To those who don't know me yet- I look very forward to meeting you someday when I have more time on the server. 

 I am RubensCherub. Famcraft's biggest Fan. You have my heart, Keep it safe.

 Love you all. Many hearts! <3333333333333        - RubensCherub

Oh man, that sounds fantastic! I'll have to look for that one <3
Thanks for commenting/answering. I appreciate it. :)

Still trying to log into the server. I haven't had any luck getting in and I've tried every day, multiple times during the day at all hours. </3
Wish me luck! xD
General Discussion / What are the most common times where whitelist is off?
« Last post by Dycept on April 22, 2022, 09:25:09 PM »
Hello! Quick question, what are the most common whitelist times (unless its completely random, ie: it could be 2 am or 12 pm)? I have been trying to join for about a week now from joining really early in the morning (example: 6-7 am) to really late (12 pm-1 am) but mostly in the afternoon and I cannot seem to get into the server when whitelist is off. Another quick question about this, is it allowed to make some sort of macro afking on my computer to rapidity join until im in and notify me if I get in? Weird question I know, but the weekend is coming up and I am trying to get in this server. Thank you in advance :ᴅ

Happy April to you!

Generally texture packs and shaders are client side only.  As long as it doesn't give you some type of advantage over other players you should be fine.  As an example, I use a random plugin that does particle fireflys and glowing plankton for a bit of world immersion.
