Famcraft Survival / Happy Birthday FamCraft!
« on: April 15, 2015, 12:11:07 PM »
I decided to add this post I made on FB on here for those who may not have FB, or simply isn't following our FB Page. If you would like to follow us, please click the like button under the home and forum tab above this post.

It's FamCrafts 3rd birthday on April 29, 2015. I remember when me (bknysnake) and Micah (micahdg) first started FamCraft. Here's a fun fact for you guys-
FamCraft was formerly known as xComUFO which was owned by Micah himself.

I met Micah on a different server which will remain un-named. We became friends, and I found out through an admin on that un-named server that Micah has his own server. I finally bumped into Micah again on that server and questioned him about it, before I knew it, I was on Micahs server and he was teaching me the ropes of being a moderator. I decided to invest in Micahs vision, and include my own vision.

I rented a VPS so that Micah could have a server to run all of his test. Turned out the server I rented performed a lot better than the one Micah had. We switched out to this server, then I decided to dedicate a website to this server so that players can communicate. Keep in mind, I'm a newb to all this. Micah was teaching me from scratch.

I spoke to Micah about the name of the server. I felt the name xComUFO was not appropriate as it belonged to another game as most of you probably know. Our vision was to create a community where everyone got along, everyone helped each other, and everyone treated each other as family. I figured we were creating this FAMily friend mineCRAFT server, why not mix the words FAMily and mineCRAFT. Then vuala came FamCraft.

Before I knew it, we went from renting a $30 VPS, to renting a $200. Dedicated server within a month or 2 if I can recall correctly. Then we invested in buying our own server, then we bought another server... and finally we got our 3rd server which is hosting our FTB server.

We have evolved over the years and I feel safe saying that we are definitely a great family friendly community. I believe in my heart that we have one, if not the only best staff and players any minecraft community can ask for. I want to express my appreciation to both staff and players who remain part of our community and continue to be part of this community for years to come. Thank you all!

Hello All,

I thought I'd inform you all that I will be attending the NYC Comic Con this year again. I had so much fun last year that I couldn't resist going. I have already purchased my ticket for the Saturday event. I have a few question for you guys.

  • Are any of you going?
  • Who should I go dressed as?

If I see any crowds focused on minecraft I'll be sure to announce FamCraft!

Answer the questions by posting below!

General Discussion / Join me in the Cystic Fibrosis Fundraising!
« on: May 03, 2014, 09:14:22 AM »
Hello Famcrafters!

I am currently trying to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. I am asking that you guys assist me in raising this money, but I would like to also let you know that these donations are in no way affiliated with Famcraft, meaning you can not get any donor rights through this donation. I am asking for donations out of the kindness of your hearts to help these kids in need. There is a prize from the foundation and a prize through my job. My job is a corporate company which has locations all over the USA. So the way it works is, each state gets put into a team, each team has its own members. The team to get the most donations gets a few gifts, and the gifts are given to the member who receives the highest donation to the lowest donation. If I were to win a prize, I will pick a random person like the things we did recently with the clan home and statue build competition. You enter to win the prize, if I get one, by donation to the site, although you may have to let me know who you are in the list of donators.

Keep in mind that I am not doing this for any gift or anything for that matter, this is purely to help the foundation. After all this is Famcraft, and we care for the kids :D

To see my progress so far, or to make a tax-deductible donation to the CFF for my Great Strides walk, check out: http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/famcraft

From the CFF's website:
Quote
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.

Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!

Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.

Please support me!

Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.

Survival Server Status / LWC magnet, Hoppers
« on: April 06, 2013, 11:06:03 PM »
Hello everyone, I'd like to announce that we are removing the LWC magnet feature due to a few problems we are receiving, though we were suppose to remove this a long time ago. Since 1.5, Mojang had added a new feature called hoppers. You can use this system to replace the LWC magnet.

click on me to learn about hoppers

You guys have until Monday to replace your magnet system with hoppers, if we happen to come across lag due to entity drops and no one is collecting the entities, we will be forced to disable your automated system. We hope everyone will comply with this as we need your help to get to the bottom of this. On Monday the magnet feature will be completely removed from the server, there isn't any way to bypass this so make sure to change what ever you need to change.
