Belated news announcement and first homepage post in over a year
Short news is that I was thinking about setting up Kraftzone minecraft server over the holiday time for a week or so, I did get a few requests in pm and email over december, but said it would likely not happen.
So that's the bad news it just never happened plus I do say things like never gonna run the mc server again.. yaya Well the good news is that I've got a server that is capable of running an mc server again, so I'll be using that for development projects (SnowdenHail multiplayer).. while its not being fully utilized it can have the mc server up aswel!
The server is pretty much just 1.8.8+plugins from where it left off, with some minor changes to get things to get it working again as its previous setup was a little more complicated, no lobby server(no cracked mc sorry)/ no bungee proxy/ and a bunch of other plugins that haven't been setup yet. I'll get around to it eventually maybe when I look at upgrading it to the latest mc version (I honestly haven't paid any attention to minecraft in the last year, not sure if latest version of minecraft is even worth bothering with? are you guys/gals fine with 1.8.8 or does it need upgrading to latest?).. permissions/ranks all the same as before.
I should say this isn't really the return of the minecraft server in any permanent sense, yknow maybe its up for the week/month maybe longer maybe shorter. It's also not going to have a very active admin either, but sure I'll be coming on it, and eventually probably update the server to the latest mc version (and all the plugins etc) when I get around to it, the server voting stuff is all dead and that won't be used either.
Oh yeh if it not up.. its probably crashed or I needed the server resources. I'll try to let those on the server or on hear any plans for its downtime as best I can. It is what it is ok
Jump on for some nostalgia, chat to old players who hop back on, start some drama. Well that is it.. enjoy!

So I'm sure many of you may have noticed the minecraft server is back. A few players really wanted to bring it back...
-is it temporary or permanent? its here for the foreseeable future.
-will I be playing on it often? I still like my minecraft server and the community we have, and hopefully that can grow, you probably just see me on it some nights though.
-are you running it? yes and no, I do have server access but will really just be keeping it tied in with the website for the most part.
-cracked allowed? yes, side effect all premium users will have to register/login aswel as this isn't being run with exactly the same dedicated server setup I had before.
All previous ranks & staff ranks remain, seaofpain is most active and you can talk to him about day to day server issues/suggestions/requests etc. or just use the forums.
FYI I've removed the server map files that were up for download for the last 2 months, the server bandwidth for the last 2 months sure did go up a lot. Not sure if anyone actually setup there own server with the maps, you grabbed a piece of Kraftzone history if you grabbed the files either way

I'm going to miss running the server as I've said many times before it was fun but for anyone asking if I'll come back to running a public minecraft server again, as much as I sometimes feel like doing it, its very unlikely and that is why I'm letting you all have the maps you built on.
So here we go... (green warp commands just so you know which map that was)
World18 -Size: 2.31gb (April2015 -> To the end /world18 // 1.8 )
World17_amp -Size: 2.64gb (Dec2013 -> To the end /wilderness // 1.7)
World -Size: 3.54gb (April2013 -> To the end /survival // 1.5)
Kraftzone2_world -Size: 3.47gb (June2012 -April2013 /freebuild // 1.2.5)
Kraftzone_world -Size: 1.76gb (Dec2011-June2012 // 1.0)
Kraftwars.net -Size 700mb (Factions server map)
Not listed are skyblock, cityworldv1/v2, quake world, survival game maps, skyspawn, the nether worlds and the end world maps.
Might add those on later but most of those weren't main player building maps, most were server game maps, so for now the above will have to do.
As for plugins, while short of giving away the entire server setup I'm only providing the plugin data folders for.. Towny, Mychunk , WorldGuard and Essentials (Excludes player files as they contained ip's, still provides public warps) you will have to get the plugins, at least all things protected can remain that way. (I do advise using those plugin protections if you start a server without having certain things disabled, some builds have lava/fire etc that without worldguard area blocking etc you might find entire buildings burnt, melted, flooded etc )
I think that should keep any of you busy recreating kraftzone for your own personal server if you want. Its not everything but it should help. If you need setting up help etc you can ask on the forum, if you are wanting access to more files\plugins etc you can pm and I'll think about it. Otherwise all help/guides etc can be asked on the forum or search engine
http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/ and https://www.spigotmc.org/ have all the plugins and server files you need.

It has been a journey.... funtimes have been had, creative towns and buildings have been made and lots drama has happened....To all those that were part of the history of Kraftzone and mainly its minecraft server....
Thank you all.
..where it all began years ago.
As sad as it is to end the server, somethings are what you all make of them, and for me their isn't enough reason to continue it any longer like this. It is disappointing, and I know some of you will miss it, but for me it is time to move on.
So the server will go down on Monday, a final backup will happen on Friday. For the minecraft server /maps(excluding some plugins) will have download links, not sure yet if they will be public, or if I will just be giving those out on request next week.
I do still plan to keep the website/teamspeak going, Kraftzone may still rise again for another journey perhaps with its own game who knows.
∆ You can't truly miss what you have never had or experienced, but those who have, I hope they were all good memories

Wanted to run a Rust server for a long time, however after legacy Rust died off, and Experimental was rubbish for so long, made worse by Gary not bothering about getting a proper Linux build out for the dedicated, meant I just never setup the server.
And what a battle to get this server working, Linux + Rust dedicated via wine.. worked great 4 hours while I was setting it up with mods, until it was hit with a mono compiler bug that prevented it from starting up ever again (still possible to get it working on Linux, just not reliable enough) <Table flip>. So I had to go back to windows on the dedicated server. At least performance is better for the Rust server.
If you know anyone who plays Rust let them know about the server, trying to get a new server started is pretty difficult these days. And any suggestions etc the Rust forum section is located here: http://kraftzone.net/forum/index.php?action=forum#c11
Current gather rates for raw materials are as the server title says x2 however rpgstats means that those rates increase as you levelup aswel. I've kept the gather rates near to what I find a playable, I'm still thinking of putting instant crafting on, or near 25% of the time on crafting timers. You can check exact gather rates ingame /gather
I'm wanting to setup some arena areas where you can go straight to FFA and TDM killing with guns on joining the arena etc. Maybe section off parts of the map for various playstyles..
Nice thing with Rust is the oxide mod has alot more popularity on Rust and a lot of base mods already exist to get the server packed with all the useful features and commands players have come to expect from games like this. To think I was coding that for 7dtd server myself was so fun NOT. I've put a list commands currently on the server.. there is more and I'll add to it later in another topic.
For more command listings check /help and also /info for the custom gui helper screen which I'm still improving
/sethome - Set home, default max homes is 3 per player, higher ranks get extra homes.
/home 'name' - Teleports you to that home, cooldown 5s.
/listhomes - Shows all your homes
/tpr 'playername' - Requests teleporting to that player, abbreviated names supported
/tpa - Accepts the teleport request
/stats - Shows gather leveling stats
/hunt - Main command for all hunt rpg skill commands
/dayvote - Vote for day time
/ff - Rust.io FriendlyFire toggle
/gather - Shows current server gather rates
/dayvote - View help
/dayvote limits - View configuration limits
/dayvote progress - View current day vote progress
/dayvote yes - Vote yes to skip current night cycle
/dayvote no - Vote no to skip current night cycle
/kit - (Kits, still to set those up and decide on what will be in them suggestions welcome)
In other news still changing the forum, Minecraft, Ark:Survival and Rust all have there own forum sections now. And soon will be the forum portal page that will get a bit of a make over. It has its roots as a Minecraft server however the design does clash a bit with running servers for other games.
I still think there might be room for a 4th server... bringing back the Minecraft Factions server (Kraftwars) or another game, I dare say it 7dtd as the one I was running for it did get pretty popular. However I think I will wait to see what there next update for it is like before deciding.
Daily events: 02/19/2017These events are scheduled based on the servers more popular player hours
