While the days of the server grew darker and colder, the merriment of the holiday season did everything to combat the bitter bite of cold. Food, drinks and snacks were had, as everyone reminisced about times past, about the memories built to this point, about some of the silly things that had happened along the way, and about each other. With fondness, well...
...while @Geval may have been largely incoherent for this collective sentiment, the rest of us on and from IcicleCraft would like to wish you a happy and safe holidays - and the best of luck in the new year!
The hardware running our server has been fairly untouched for quite some time. So we have decided to find replacement hardware to fully allow us to keep the community and server ready for future updates. However, this requires the server to be unavailable for some time while we move everything from databases to server files.
Server has stopped: 1:05: PM GMT+2 (13:05 CEST)
Server has started: 4:04 PM GMT+2 (16:04 CEST)
Date of migration:

As of this month our server official turns 8 years old! Furthermore, this month also celebrates Minecraft's 10 year anniversary as well. Our 1.13 world is roughly 8-9 months old and our 1.9 world has just turned 3 years old. Sadly we will have to be saying goodbye to our 1.9 world at the end of this month just as we said goodbye not too long ago to our 1.7 world, our longest world at 5 years within the server.
The server has hit some rocky times yet through the determination of its community it has continued to strive forth and breed new life in and outside of the game of Minecraft. Our players have set out in search of new adventures within the world of 1.13, bringing with them old memories, continued projects, and the hope for a new start in virgin lands. Our Discord server is still lively and has seem to be our most active space outside of the game, especially now that we've been able to integrate both of them together. While many of our older...
After just celebrating its third birthday, it is time to say goodbye to another world. The 1.9 World is set for closure on May 31st. 2019.
This means you have a little over two months to get a member of staff to move your buildings to the 1.13 world. Depending on size we can move up to 5 buildings, but it is solely up to staff on how much can be moved. The space we save on the server will be used for expansion of the end, the nether and the resourceworld.
We will again ask you to contact your friends who might've played here, but is now taking a break, so this doesn't fly over their heads and they come back to nothing.
As we did for 1.7 the world will also be available for download, so stay tuned!
The wind continued its relentless assault in a grand campaign to wreak havoc across the dying lands, disturbing the dead trees nearby into an unearthly weaving as the air screamed in agony through their hollow trunks. Aided by flurries of thick snow, the journey ahead was unforgivably blind, with the only consolation of progress being the remnants of footprints. Through the virgin woods and the rocky mountain terrain, the travelers pressed on, for they had no where else to go but forward. Amongst those in this unusual group were battle-hardened veterans, unyielding to the slightest hint of danger but cautious of what was to come: the life-or-death war against Winter. Among their companions however were also a few younglings, unused to the nomadic life cycle every few seasons that their elders had become accustomed to but were willingly eager to seek out the new territory.
As the group of travelers braved onward, their old world began to crumble and would embed itself into the...
Today marks a special anniversary for the 1.7.2 World as it turns 5 years old today. No other world has achieved this feat, nor has any other world ever come close to rivaling it. It is, I would argue, the one world that has the most history of the server contained within, from its humble beginnings in 2013 up to the present day. For many of the current playerbase, the 1.7.2 World is all you've ever known of IC's history along with our two newer worlds that have only recently scratched the surface of the community's rich heritage.
However for those able to recall the youthful endeavor so long ago, that time when the great expanse known as the 1.7 Update filled our hearts with joyous applause and the thoughts of virgin lands appearing once more to be no mere rumor, I wish to take you back in time. The 1.7 world changed the game for the server and the players beyond what could have been foreseen. The old world at that time, 1.3.1, was in a state of decline, with...
