What is Gatecraft?
We are a friendly community that strives for building the most epic creations block by block. With each level of proficiency our players accomplish they progress up the ranks which helps achieve greater builds and greater ranks. If you are a builder then this is the server where you want to be; where your greatest work will be rewarded and admired. Also, we have cookies.
Yeah, that’s nice, more info plx?
Fine. We have multiple worlds on GC; Two are building worlds. These worlds play out as if you are in survival, but with an economy system. There are also plenty of minigames to play, all created by our staff (mostly TCGM and hporterv).
There is also the guest world, which is an expansion upon our earlier Guest Zone system, which put guests in a single area which was reset weekly. We have an entire world for that now!
There’s a fourth world, as well. One we think you’ll enjoy. This is the Space World. Yup. Space. Planets. Moons. Etc. Oh, and did we mention?
It has PVP and Factions.
So log on now! 😀
Seriously? More information than that?
Fine. When you first join GateCraft, you will be a Guest. We have a specialized plot world for Guests only. In this world, you are provided resources with which you can build a house. Or something similar. Anyways, this system is our alternative to a whitelist, or other less-attractive systems of locking down servers against griefers. A dedicated builder can achieve the required requirements for your house within 2 hours; after that, our Ticket system can be used to submit an application (this is done in-game). The Staff looks at it, and 3 staff members say yes (hopefully anyways) to your application; you are promoted to a Builder, and can access the rest of the server. Builders lose all permissions in the Guest World (to prevent material harvesting) and your inventory does not carry over to the main worlds.
GateCraft is, at it’s core, a Survival Freebuild server. Creative mode can be gained, but is separated from Survival completely. Creative Mode is several ranks up the rank ladder from Builder, so you’re not getting your hands on it immediately. Our Spawn City has many teleportation gates out to the wilderness, which you can take if you want some clean land to build upon.
We have many minigames, both in the main world (in Spawn City) and in our Minigames world. We have an incredibly complex MobArena to the South of Spawn City, along with a TNT Spleef Arena built by yours truly (TCGM) and hporterv. There is a comprehensive shop system in place, with automatic buying of the shop plots; all of them are within the towers diagonally situated as part of the main Spawn City building.
Our Space World is a PVP and Factions thing, as mentioned before, and is completely separated from the rest of the server. Almost no commands you can see in the normal worlds work in this one, and there is a separate ranking system. Flight is enabled for everyone, as it is SPACE. It is expected that any and all stigmas or butthurtness be contained to this world alone. I’ve played PVP servers before, I know what kind of tension arises. Don’t tell me it doesn’t happen, it does. Just keep it there. Anyways, there are many planets in Space, all with cores of valuable minerals. Build Space Stations with your friends, sealing them against the vacuum of space (which actually exists, without a space suit you will die).
