Sheep's always deep, he's not entirely wrong or right though, the thing about friends/members here its not all true also some party dubai there was no party. Though kraftzone members that I remember and registered as forum members are all on the virtual list for a reunion party at some point in a distant lottery winning universe where I koolio throws money around lol, just don't count on it happening thats all. Much like this mc server getting back to anything other than another attempt to bring it back to being playable... problem really being that mc just hasn't improved much so my attention and time available to it isn't what it used to be, hell some great mods that used to exist simply don't anymore, and that's just offputting, so i dunno whatever the hell mojang/ms do with all that money they get for mc, it doesn't go into the game much.

yeah it used to be possible to use the old mc launcher if you had the official mc launcher to initially create and fetch all the files for things....

alot has changed in the recent mc versions and the launcher just doens't understand some of the  json files now, including login detail connection handling...

honestly its just not worth using my launcher for newer mc versions now as it won't work with plugins like Forge either, as they seem to want to download something new each time, so even doing the copy folder tricks won't work to get even the offline mode to startup.

But nice to know someone was still using the launcher for older version.. I still prefere it myself as it was faster and quick to run, but the work involved in making an updated one just isn't worth it for me now so sorry I can't help with that.

sheepman you need you let it go dude, you took it more seriously than you needed to, you also wrote some stuff on here I was going to reply to until you deleted it, anyway the server has been up and down for various reasons..I've kind of explained before some reasons why its gone down, can you not just accept it for what it is.

Well I guess alot more of you are having to stay inside like me and we've all got a bit more free time, so the server is coming back.

At this point I think anyone's expectations of how long this stays up is anyone's guess.. until most of us aren't in isolation? Kraftzone's minecraft might aswel operate seasonally as and when right :D

I'm sure it will be up for at least a month or more, starting where it left off around the start of this year when it closed... it will be ready this friday for 1.15 with a few plugin changes/updates, and I've reset the main world (I know some stuff got built there but I'm not sure how much of it was worth saving?)

Maybe there is some 'fun' plugins for virus spreading, KZ hasn't got a hospital built in the city world for this virtual pandemic, and perhaps the Admin Shop might need to implement 2 meter distance rule for safe shopping... :D

See you all on the server then or discord  https://discord.gg/WrdpnWr

new dedicated server is up and running... configuring of plugins and permissions are in process... new spawn area is being built ...out of a dirt, its a start right :D

You can get the new server ip from our official discord server here: https://discord.gg/WrdpnWr

We also have a discord bot so you can stay connected to the in game chat right on discord and chat on the server from that aswel.

Should be a week or so before official launch will have to see what gets done before then, but if you want to join the server now and look around and you don't mind server restarts and a total lack plugin perms currently then feel free to join.

So I have the new server, it's being setup right now..

As I'm looking at updating the server to the latest... I have been noticing lot of old plugins I was using on 1.11 aren't updated, so I'm thinking of leaving the current 'nostalgia' server up... but the new server will be completely fresh on everything and it won't contain any of the old maps, pretty much everything will be done from scratch, old ranks and permissions for plugins will be etc ..not even sure the new server will be using towny.... so that might be a big change, not sure I will use factions though... maybe just go without such plugins and have some other sort of area or block protection instead

Oh KZ has a discord server, just never promoted it much after closing the server as it's pretty much not been active for a while.. still its mostly setup, public invite link https://discord.gg/WrdpnWr

Will promote and probably be adding some discord site integration later with it so its the main one new players can join.

I think you guys are all coming back at the right time!.. nice to see you again Salil and Thomas! Hopefully some more old members will also log in again :)

So I've put in an order for a dedicated server (it will be in Germany with Hetzner, they don't seem to be doing anything until Monday, will see how it goes for the first month, price and performance was good, if it doesn't work ping wise with everyone will find another one in maybe France or USA NY side)

I have a holiday break from work coming up after next week where I'll have some free time to set up a new minecraft server! ok its the same one.. but a refresh new maps, new plugins (if anyone wants to start finding some plugins they think will be good for the server post them here, I think I'll continue to use https://www.spigotmc.org/  for the server, but noticed a lot of the plugins have changed)... not even sure we will stick with Towny, not sure if its still updated or something better has replaced it... things to research I guess...open to suggestions on a new direction with core server plugins.

Will probably try to keep the good plugins and the old worlds for visiting but not building in..

Anyway this wasn't some spontaneous decision to start the server again, an old member of kz has been in contact behind the scenes and wanted to front some donation money towards the server hosting and getting an updated Kraftzone server alive again. And I've noticed the new interest people have been having in minecraft again, so I figured it's a worth a try,  hopefully will get things running smoothly, I don't see myself being as an active admin as I used to be on the server which could be good it will mean more old and new members will be able to take more responsibility over the server.

I still have a new website for Kraftzone started but for the start this site/forum will remain. Also given the state of minecraft servers I will also try some advertising for when the server is setup, have to try make the server known to new players.

If anything I just look forward to making a start on Titan castle v3, with a new player spawn world ofc :)

Soon as the new server is setup (might even have it setup at some basic level before next week, I'll make a news announcement for the pre-launch building of areas, and sorting out staff/support ranks again.

Sorry forgot to reply to this sheep, I feel so lazy having left this for over a month... but always appreciate the feedback

"just turning it back into a functioning server that is better then its condition right now for me; not easy. Alot to it, for now I just take it easy, possibly look toward figuring out what minecraft zone could be if it ran again. Ideas come to mind, but needs to be well regarded"

I mean if minecraft is getting some better updates these days/months then maybe it might be worth looking at redoing the server with fresh new plugins etc and new world to mess around in.. I could be see myself setting it up with some mc control panel and giving access to you and few others who have been trusted in staff position before, maybe you and others could setup new plugins and run it a bit more like admin I guess, seeing as I'd be much less hands on with it now.

I didn't know what that picture was until I just looked up 4d tesseract..


much easier to understand it once animated :)

Hey dude

I was hoping there would still be people playing but I found that even the server was gone this time. It saddens me this was the one place I loved.


I mean not many play mc anymore, but seeing as you had interest in it I've started it up so you can go visit old maps etc, think it was working mc 1.11 from where I  stopped updating it (http://map.kraftzone.net:8222/) . So yeah server can be started up anytime if there is interest from anyone who wants to revisit for nostalgia.. It just sometimes goes offline because I never set up it like a 24/7 server with auto restarts etc mainly just because I just don't maintain it.

But seeing all the familiar faces on the forum brings me back. 2014 and even 2013 on the first day I joined. The day I was a brat. I believed those damn videos about op. I so idiotically refused many offers I should have turned up. Caused drama I shouldn’t have. I wasn't mature back then but now I am.

Yet even with such things I may have done I still had friends on there. I still got treated fair and that was really what helped me out. I feel almost as if kraftzone was a gift to me from god to really learn something. Because I did learn stuff. I learned so much it taught me a ton of lessons. It gave me a real place to have friends.

So I am here. Mineocreeper mineodiamond And zer0_n4ke. Forever.




Glad you found the server, it's surprising when I think of the 1000's of other mc servers that are and were around to know that kraftzone was still a place for people who liked something about it.... So it's always nice to hear these stories of how others felt about the time they used to play on it, things they did, what they got from it. I know I've written about similar feelings of running the server and anyone who kept up with events on the server/forum it has quite the history. We spent time in our lives on it and yet behind the virtual world we all have our own lives.

I personally learnt a lot from it and consider it a success in how long the mc server went on for and the number of people who were a part of building things and making it a good experience for everyone.. And to some extent even the chaos of griefing, arguments etc.. it was all part of it what made it interesting and the interactions everyone had in the this virtual community.

So really I'm thankful to anyone who got something out of it, because Kraftzone roots are tied into a time and place in my own life which is why its special to me. What I do next with it I still have no idea, I just know that its something I started and I'm not done with it yet. It's just dormant right now until such a time when I hope it will come to play a bigger part in more people's lives, probably through some other game, network or experience...I still don't know yet, it's tied into my own lifes journey, time, resources and figuring things out.

Even if kraftzone doesnt live on in reality. It lives on in our hearts. The friends we made the things we did. Koolio thank you for providing this experience to me. I can’t wait for what comes in the future!


I have no idea of the future, I wonder myself, but it's always good to hear others talk about Kraftzone and desire for it be something again. All I can say is that it's certainly in my mind and heart to want to do something more with it again :)

I mean the link wasn't dead back when I posted :D

Anyway as the redirection stuff needs fixing I've put the last updated version here..

https://kraftzone.net/MinecraftLauncher_v1.42.zip …working link, though the launcher might not work as good as it did years ago …it might be a little broken in some places, as I abandoned it years ago sadly and haven’t kept up with mojangs server changes. A complete rewrite would be better, though I think other mc launchers might be worth looking at anyway now.

Always like your posts sheepman :D

To answer your question about a new site.. yes I am doing a new one now.. will be a wordpress site, with plugins for things like shoutbox and new forum.. I'll do a custom theme maybe something similar maybe a little different...  it will look different in layout for sure but think it might be whats needed to start kz with something fresh.. and this one won't go away it just won't be the main site anymore.. I think it will be alright to start with and get better over time as and when other things happen like its own game or maybe in the meantime a server for other games again.

the plan anyway.. thanks for the encouragement, I don't give up on the zone either :)

Announcements / Site is back again...
« on: August 27, 2018, 05:21:08 pm »
So took a bit longer to get things back...

New server is using php7 which meant the forum wasn't going to run without an update.. which I had been holding off doing as I knew it would break so many things like plugins..

And it has, so while things mostly work the forum and the various plugins it was setup with before are no longer working properly.

Anyway the news announcement I had made a week ago got lost. Just to reiterate it the current Kraftzone website is going to be moved to a different subdomain and folder... so https://kraftzone.net/forum will become http://kraftzone.net/old   or old.kraftzone.net

This is to make room for a new fresh website.

Anyway it's back :)

Minecraft storymode: the triggering

If I ever release a cough finished' game, I'll be sure to make sure it has no storymode sheepman :D Nothing that is released afterwards as some sort of cash grab on the popularity and parents/relatives who don't know what to buy as a gift but hear the child likes to play x, and they just saw an x: storymode that looks kinda mundane and safe to buy :D

Honestly minecraft storymode I never even had enough interest to see what it was all about.. I figured there were youtubers that made more interesting minecraft adventures to follow for children than any official storymode.
