The long-awaited player versus player arena is now open!
Made by pickletoez, vadefac, Lord_kill_51, DragonBorn, and Rachel0d over three days, the Thunderdome features a small concession stand with appropriately inflated snack prices, a betting booth, and a spectator floor made of glass. The arena itself is styled so there are plenty of hiding places, water sources (pesky Fire Aspect enchantments!) and surveying spots
*SHOPS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE SPECTATOR FLOOR!*Talk to pickletoez in-game for more info.
You cannot type /home or /spawn while in the arena.
Don't kill people in the outer areas of the arena. Inside the playing field only!
Die, and you'll be teleported to spawn. You can come back to watch!
The stuff you drop is free for all, so only bring your weapons/armor.
No bows & arrows allowed! It's too overpowered.
There will be an official event somewhere in the next week- keep an eye out in the Contests & Events forum for a post from me. It will be streamed live on our Twitch channel by myself as well! For those interested, the event will be a pvp tournament with an AMAZING prize and induction into the Hall Of Fame as the first winner!
I'd like to get ahold of you! We (PR) need you guys. Badly. We'd like you to advertise and do stuff DC-related. In return, we'll advertise YOU on the sidebar, as well as on our facebook, youtube, and twitter accounts. You'll be linked to on some of our websites as well.
We don't need you to donate for this; just actively broadcast the server and you'll get the aforementioned rewards.
To join our YouTube/Streaming team, just post below with this format:
Link to your account(s):
How long have you been here?
Not a YouTuber/Streamer?
That's fine! You can really help out in some other ways!
If you have graphic skills, make some DC banners, images, etc. and well take a look at em! Take some cool pictures in game! These all help!
If you don't know how to do that, you can help by telling your friends about DC. It may seem small but it's a MASSIVE help.
So, we have decided that due to 1.8's new materials and the new map generation we are going to start a new map when we update. During this map change Jobs/McMMO levels, and REM will copy over, so you will not lose progress in that!
There are a few other reasons we are starting a new map, as the people who play may know the server hasn't been the most active lately, and therefore we would like to make this a fresh start for advertising, and return DreamCraft to it's former popularity.
We are still discussing changes for the new map, and will be releasing more information as it becomes available!
Thanks for reading, and happy crafting
(p.s. we still encourage playing on this map until the map reset, it helps build the community )
Dreamcraft has been updated to 1.7.9, enjoy! Please report anything you notice gone wrong, because it can always happen! (And please, even if you just join and leave for a minute, do join the server - it's important for your playerdata in the future).
While the update went well for the most part, I did manage to temporarily destroy the dynamic map, which I seem to do every time.. It'll probably be back to normal by the time you read this, but just in case.
Thank you for your continued support, hopefully Dreamcraft will pick up again.

REM is too hard to get at the moment, so we have doubled the payouts that jobs give players. Also, the payments for placing blocks that jobs get paid for(and vice versa) has been kept the same(a.k.a. half the new payouts). This is to allow solo players to still make money, while discouraging exploiting and encouraging cooperation.
I want to also clarify about the "jobs exploit" that was mentioned in one of the latest updates. The scenario of a miner friend digging up blocks for the builder friend to build with is a good thing; it's encouraged that players work together to make money together. The "exploit" is when the miner and builder are breaking and placing the same blocks in a small area with the intention on gaining easy REM, rather than building something or mining for resources. I hope that clears up some misconceptions, and if you have any questions then feel free to message me or a member of staff and ask them.
-Payouts doubled for job-related blocks
-Payments kept the same for job-related blocks(i.e. digger now gains 4xp/0.4REM for breaking dirt, and loses 2xp/0.2REM for placing)
-Starting a new town: 15,000 REM(from 20,000)
-Claiming chunks for town: 1,000 REM(from 2,000)
-Starting a new nation: 200,000 REM(from 250,000)
-Level up sounds are now off
-Updated. Hopefully will fix the flames bug. If you notice the bug(infernal mob flames without the infernal mob) then please write a petition( /pe new infernal flames bug! )
Also, staff and member ranks have changed! This is in anticipation for an increase in activity and will only benefit us in the long run. Unfortunately for some, current member+ players have been set to the member rank now. Currently member+ didn't do much other than show the player as green. We have plans to make member+ have a good amount of additional commands and abilities, and the rank will be temporarily given to players who earn it. More info on this later.

The Staff list has been updated, and a new system has been implemented for it. Therefore I will post it and explain the new system.
Public Relations[PR] Blaster707
Human Resources [ HR ] Echoic ibwicked
Information Technology [IT] Ozbar11 Darkstar1592
Game Moderators [GM] Snowlore GraystoneT
Yellow-Gold = SuperMod
Blue = Moderator
Lilac/Purple = Apprentice
Public Relations handles advertising, and helping to come up ideas for events. They also handle how we want to make the experience of DreamCraft work, and work together with Game Moderators for this purpose.
Human Relations handles and manages staff. It's a pretty simple job to explain, but one of the less pleasant jobs on the server.
IT handles plugins, and every other technical side of the server.
Game Moderators focus on making sure everything goes well in game, runs the events, comes up with events, and handles server-project. The Building department is a part of Game Moderators also.

Price updates to balance the economy out a bit more.
-Title:level is now as follows...Novice:0, Apprentice:20, Journeyman:40, Expert:60, Master:90
-Payouts for break/placement even each other out
-Many methods of making money are unaccounted for(for example, Weaponsmiths only make REM from crafting ___ swords). Limited classes such as weaponsmith will be expanded upon shortly to make them viable
-Start a new town: 20,000 REM (down from 30k)
-Claim land for town(one adjacent chunk): 2,000 REM (the same)
-Nation: 250,000 REM (down from 500k)
TL;DR of the additional notes: Having conflicting job classes such as miner and builder is not recommended, and if players attempt to exploit the classes using a friend then all involved will experience unfortunate consequences.
A small expansion on the JOBS changes, with a little example. If a class earns money breaking a specific block, that class also loses the same amount of money from placing that block as well(and vice versa).
An example is the miner, who earns money and exp for breaking stone blocks(0.2 REM and 2.0 exp). If the miner broke 5 stone blocks, they would earn 1.00 REM and 10.0 exp. If the same miner placed 5 stone blocks, they would lose 1.00 REM and 10.0 exp. However, if the miner's friend, a builder, came along and used those stone blocks to make buildings in their town, then both the miner and the builder would be making money(miner makes money mining stone, builder makes money placing it).
A couple additions to this. If a player is both a miner and a builder, they will still get both effects from both jobs, and there's no way around this, therefore it's not recommended to multiclass in conflicting jobs. Also, having a builder friend place blocks for the miner friend to break is considered an exploit and will be dealt with when caught. Punishment includes reducing or zeroing the involved players' wallets, and if it is repeated or severe enough, ban(tempban or permaban depends on severity).
