CharlieCraft is a Minecraft community focused on family friendly casual play.
What does CharlieCraft cost to play?
CharlieCraft is 100% free to play, for everyone, forever. Our website will allow the purchase of many in-game perks and upgrades, but all of these are completely optional, and players can have a complete, fulfilling gaming experience without spending a penny.
I still don't understand how it's free to play - what's the catch?
There is no catch at all, if you already own Minecraft you are free to play for as long as you like, with no charge.
While there is no cost for members to play on CharlieCraft, CharlieCraft does need donation each month to keep running. Players that have the means to donate are encouraged to do so even if they do not find value in any of the perks.
Recommended donation is about 5 - 15$ for a month of play. If you do not have the means to donate we fully understand, and would still love to have you playing on the server.
Creative Mode on the Survival Map
Recently I have been setting up the server to allow for the use of creative mode on the main world without it interfering with the economy or legit survival players. This will allow me to sell creative mode once again, and bring in some much needed revenue. After looking at last years donations it became clear that our main source of donations came from users buying creative mode. So it only seems logical to bring it back to help curb the low donation trend this year.
The creative mode perk can be found inside the new SuperVIP rank. This perk is not for everyone tho as it comes with a pretty hefty price tag. We feel that creative mode on the survival map is such a game changer for anyone who has it, and even those around them that do not have it, that we would make it a very premium perk.
I sold creative mode to a some players back in charliecraft 2.0. These players can contact me and I will gladly restore their creative permissions.
Slight Changes to Rank Packages
The points obtained thru the purchase of rank packages has been increased.
New Perk: Adjust your fly speed has been added to the VIP rank.
New Donation Store
I have set up a new donation store. This store looks better than the old store, and will allow me to do sales more easily, and some other significant back end stuff that you guys probably don't care about. Point is, it is better. It should look better, and be slightly more user friendly.
In honor of our new donation store setup I am going to be placing everything at 25% off for the next 2 weeks.
Players can now level up their skills and use resource gathering and combat abilities.
Two New Perks
Inventory No Drop
With this perk players will no longer drop their normal inventories on death.
XP No Drop
With this perk players will no longer drop their exp on death.
Sadly these two perks were removed due to conflicts with the plugin we use to make sure creative items are not brought over from the creative world. I tried to get them working together but for these perks to work we would have to remove the creative world.
McMMo tries to take over the repair command. The plugin is also poorly coded so I can not override the command via conventional methods. So players with the repair command will need to use /erepair.
I have finished setting up the ground work to allow for new ranks to be sold.
Players with Legacy Donor Ranks:
Upon logging in your old rank tag will not be there. This can be easily fixed tho.
To display your old donor rank in the game chat you will need to go into the /shop. Then go into the point section of the shop and find the section to toggle rank tags. You will be able to switch to any rank tag you own. So if you own VIP, you will have access to Iron, Gold, Diamond, and VIP rank tags.
We are changing how chest locking works to reduce the amount of signs that need to be placed inside players towns. Too many signs create client lag for lots of players and towns with large chest vaults always suffer from it. So we are switching to a command based chest locking plugin that will keep your chests locked without the use of signs. You will still be able to do all the things you used to, like adding friends to the chests and all that.
Old Chest Locks:
Your old sign based chest locks will still work!
While it is a good idea to convert over to the new command based you do not have to do anything to continue to have your chests protected. Any new chests tho you will need to use the command based locking.
How it works:
Your chests will automatically be locked when you place them.
You can add other players to your chests via commands.
You can unprivate your chests via commands.
You can create private chests that unlock via password instead of adding players individually.
/cprivate - locks an unlocked chest.
/cpassword YourPasswordHere - Creates a password locked chest.
/cmodify - Add players to your protected chests
Example: /cmodify ntall1 skilleddrew mijume - this will add all 3 of the players in one command.
/cremove - Removes players from your protected chests.
Example: /cremove ntall1 - This will remove ntall1 from your chest protection.
Advanced: /cremove -ntall1 - This will remove ALL BUT ntall1 from the chest protection.
/cpublic - Create a public chest.
Public chests allow anyone access to them, and prevents others from locking it.
/cunlock - Remove a private protection from a password locked chest.
Hoppers - /lwc flag hopper - Enable hopper use on your protected chest.
Magnet - /lwc flag magnet - Make your protected chest automatically pick up items dropped on or near it.
