Howdy Howdy you IceCraft Howdys!

[​IMG]
Summer time is soon and to start things off being summery we have released the IceCraftNation summer spawn! We will be having plenty of events and activities themed to the time of year where you end up getting sand in unpleasant places so stick around!

Also those busy bodies at Minecraft HQ have decided that the plugins we currently have work far too well and so they decided to fuck that up and bring out 1.12. We will be updating to it as soon as possible (working on it already) so keep a look out for the announcement once we have made the move. If your client automatically is trying to run 1.12 already you can select 1.11.2 from the start up. (See Tobys guide below)
http://icecraftnation.com/community...-update-to-1-11-2-so-you-can-play-on-icn.179/

So grab a bucket and spade, head down to the beach on ICN and throw them at some children, because sandcastles are lame.

HOWDY ALL

A Minecraft server community is simple enough to put together. Find people with similar interests or let them find themselves. You just need to provide a place for it to happen. A large community? simple still only it takes a little time. A large community without any "toxic" players? very difficult. When it comes to running a server I have learnt one main thing. You can have a small community of kind, friendly and like minded players or you can let in any bad apple and have larger numbers. This will always be the choice and whilst it is possible to have a large community with the desired players this usually takes a substantial amount of time or highly funded advertising.

So the choices are:

A: Remove a player the moment they show strong negativity, an affinity for drama, arguing, and the most common one which I can only describe as 'Internet Self-righteousness' (Take a look at any youtube comments section for an example of this)

B: Let the player remain, allow the community to turn sour, and enjoy the benefits of a server with a large number of players.

Most servers will always choose option B. This is because most servers are geared towards a financial incentive. ICN is absolutely not. Most the staff and I have experience in this environment and have sworn to never again re-live it. Now the downsides to a small community is there is no room for large sub divisions within it. Factions has factions and Skyblock has islands but beyond that the server should operate as a single community. Our events are a fantastic example of this working to it's best light. So what happens when a community wishes to branch off? or dip...

Both TeamSpeak and Discord are available for use on ICN!

But first, please remember to follow the rules:
1. Only voice chat when you are ONLINE on ICN. These channels are supposed to make communication easier on the server. You can still check chat messages.
2. No advertising your own TeamSpeak/Discord channels.
3. The same rule regarding being respectful to players and staff apply.
4. No spamming the chat.
5. Don't use TeamSpeak or Discord to take online players to another game. Obviously you can discuss other topics but actively luring players off the server is forbidden.
6. If you have a lot of background noise, you may be asked to use the Push-To-Talk button.
7. Your name on Teamspeak/Discord needs to be similar to your ingame name or whatever you go by ingame, so that we know who you are.

All other server rules apply, if you wish to report a player or staff for breaking any of the rules you can in the report section of the forum.​

Now that you've read the rules, here is the connection info!
TeamSpeak: ts.icecraftnation.com
Discord: https://discord.gg/9aGzCdF

We like teamspeak, it works, it's easy to manage....however. A LOT of players have been asking for discord, there are pros and cons to both..However we are experimenting with a discord server currently and want your thoughts, so I've attached a poll to this thread, cast your vote.

When you are applying your credits to McMMO skills Do not put them into Salvage and Smelting. Those are directly related to other skills. In order to level up your skills

Salvage - Repair and Fishing are where the points need to go
Smelting - Mining and Repair are where the points need to go

Salvage and Smelting levels are based on an average of those two professions listed.

Welcome to IceCraftNations brand new forum! (BETA Release)

We are excited to release the brand new forum for IceCraftNation. To get started click on the "Sign Up" button and register. (There may be a few bugs/display issues on various platforms as we add new content)

Keep a close eye on the new forum as we will be updating it frequently with new announcements, change-logs, and important server information. If you had any posts or suggestions that are still unanswered on the previous forum please take the time to repost them here as the old forum will soon be redundant.
