Maintenance Finished

I am here to inform everyone that the long maintenance we had is now over. This maintenance needed to happen as there were a lot of problems behind-the-scenes that created difficulties for all of the servers on the network.

There were too many things we didn't have control over and we didn't have the means to stop crashes. This maintenance was mostly done to give administrators more accessibility and freedom to fix problems in the backend without hassle. This way, in case something goes wrong we can be quicker and more efficient with fixing it. There are more tools to identify issues which hadn't existed in previous versions and we now have more freedom to use them. With the upgrade of server software and backend processes, we have fixed the administrative issues we were having.

This maintenance wasn't necessarily done to improve performance in-game for any of our servers because there are other underlying issues present, but it prevent the servers from conflicting with one another and trying to fight over resources. This means that the servers will run more smoothly independent of one another, but it doesn't necessarily mean it fixes overarching issues that everyone has been experiencing on their individual servers. A lot of those issues are due to older versions of Minecraft and its plugins.

We hope you understand the length of our maintenance. We were trying to ensure a more optimal experience with better software and for the future, more will be able to come out of the server without software limitations holding us back. Thank you and I hope you enjoy playing on the BCraft Gaming Community servers.

Planned Maintenance Today

If you are wondering why the servers may be down, we are currently working on the server's back-end to put certain administrative issues to rest while updating some outdated software. This is a continuation of the maintenance that was stated to happen earlier this month and last month. This process should only take a few hours to complete and we will update you if we run into issues. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the fixes we are doing are a net positive for the server in the end.

If you want constant updates, please stop by our discord server listed below:

MageBlox Update Explanation

There seems to of been a lot of confusion surrounding the proposed update and changes for MageBlox. A lot of people on the forums and on the server have been concerned with building up settlements and having fun because of the update post. I am here to explain that you should not be worried.

MageBlox will not be updating for a very long time. I didn't make it transparent enough that MageBlox had a proposed update with no estimated arrival. I simply tried to put out there that MageBlox is going to have an update, but not at this very moment. My staff team and I would like to do more with MageBlox, but such a thing isn't going to be on the table for a while, so play all you want.

I will inform you when action is taken in updating MageBlox, but I promise you, I will inform everyone far before the update is pushed and the proposed changes and wipes are made on the server.

I apologize for any confusion my older post may of caused, and please enjoy the server!

MageBlox Massive Update

MageBlox will be receiving an update that switches it to the newest version. Many mods will lose support due to lack of updates from then to now. MageBlox is plagued with problems due to version and mod conflicts. Many of the issues MageBlox has are due to the software and mods that run on it not having the tools to provide a stable experience. Many mods conflict with no way to fix it and so an update would mean a solution to these problems. There will be plenty of new content but expect there to be losses.

The downside of this is that there will be a world wipe in transition. We do not plan for any future world wipes as the server software, mods, and tools we will have available will not let the problems we have with MageBlox happen again. We apologize that this type of thing is planned to happen, but as you know, there are many issues that I've personally noted that cannot be resolved. With a new update, there will be things to prevent these issues.

For those concerned about the full wipe and any items purchased via our real cash store, we will present a way to reimburse your purchases in time. Thank you for playing on our servers. Have a nice day.

Massive Server Upgrade Announcement

I'd like to introduce by saying that the server has received a massive update in hardware!

A lot of money was spent to increase the speed of each server by introducing a new solid state hard drive which separated the load put on the system by each server. Before the upgrades the servers were fighting for core system resources but now they can work independently of one another. A new case and water cooling system was also introduced to enhance core system performance. It took a while for the orders to be processed to our host and for the parts to be replaced (hence the downtime) but expect more updates that improve server performance to come as things develop.

Because we introduced the new solid state drive, BloodCraft Naruto Realism was moved to it, freeing up space for MageBlox and PikaBlox on their own individual drives. Each server should expect a performance boost for not having to fight over resources, but most of all, BloodCraft Naruto Realism has gained a little more breathing room to handle annoying issues caused by the version it is on.

We hope you appreciate these updates and again, we are sorry for the downtime and any future downtime that is present to improve the server!

Automatic Chunin Exam Plugin

There is breaking news for BloodCraft Naruto Realism players!

Today we have introduced an Automatic Chunin Exam plugin created by our Java Developer, Keelur. This is a major step ahead for the server as it now makes our exam processes much smoother with very little manual labor required from the Hosters.

This feature is revolutionary, with this server being the only one in possession of such a plugin. After tons of hard work, it is finally ready.

In the near future, we plan to automate our other exams, which include the Special Ninjas, Medical Ninjas, Jounins, and their eight man variants, which would also include the eight man Chunin Exam.

We hope you enjoy the automatic exams and all feedback is appreciated!

Potential Outage Report

There is currently a powerful storm impacting where our host provider is located. This storm will most likely cause an outage. We may stop the servers early to prevent the risk of data corruption.

We will inform everyone when/if the server goes down and when it would go back up in that case.

Thank you.

BloodCraft Naruto Realism | Technic Pack

Greetings, fellow Shinobi!

It's been quite a while since an update has been posted on here, but this is a big one. We've introduced a new element to our server that makes the comfort of gameplay more desirable. This feature is a Technic Pack.

This modpack includes several things that improve the performance of gameplay and make the server look more clean and professional.

Some of the features that this modpack provides are:

Title Screen Improvements:
- Custom Title Screen

Gives the server a branding of its own and distinguishes it from other packs.

Music Addon:
- Custom music that plays throughout the game.

Adds to immersion as you fight, quest, or do what you like to do.

FPS Optimization:
- Optifine
- BetterFPS
- FoamFix

Each of these optimization mods will change some default Minecraft algorithms to improve upon how the game performs, or will give you options to modify on your own.

Missions:
- JourneyMap Minimap Mod

This mod allows you to set waypoints, and this is helpful as a new player because the early D-Rank missions are configured to have coordinates in place for the ease of finding mission locations. The higher missions get more difficult, but as you've progressed, the minimap has mapped parts of the world. You'll be able to locate where things are by searching, or asking your fellow Shinobi on the server!

Combat:
- Status Effects HUD
- Armor & Weapons HUD

Improves upon combat by letting you see what weapon or item you have equipped to the bottom left of your screen and a status effect HUD for the top left. This will make combat more immerse and responsive.

Overall, we hope you enjoy this update to the server. A lot of work has been put into it. Remember to check by for more updates, and have fun on the server!
