August Updates!!!

Hey peeps! Thought I'd make this thread to give a few quick updates and news regarding sever information:

  • Thanks to @Bavu you are now able to scroll paintings! No more frustration in waiting for the right paintings to decorate your wall. Simply right click a painting that is placed on a wall and you will be able to scroll with your cursor until you find the painting of your choice, then right click to exit the editor.
  • A brand new Mob Arena will be coming soon in the very near future! For those unfamiliar, Mob Arena features a closed map where you may pick one of a handful of classes in order to face countless hordes of mobs and the occasional floor boss. The new one will be ~2-3x larger than the old version and potentially even more terrifying!!! See screenshot for a sneak peek!!!
  • In the works with @Omio , @Cetec and myself is hopefully a solution to fixing the AutoRank plugin issue that...

NPC Villagers now fully functional!

  • 1
We have finally managed to return NPC villager functions to normal Minecraft standards! This means they are now able to spawn, break crops to eat, be turned from zombie villagers, and (hopefully breed). We have also done this without exposing any potential griefing weaknesses that we are aware of. This has been a hot topic on the server for several years at the very least, but I am glad to say that they should be functioning properly. We hope that these changes remain in effect as we progress, but please be sure to report any issues if they arise.

Special thanks to @Omio and @Cetec as well!

Urgent Server maintenance - Backend changes

Server up and running!
Maintenance time frame:
Started 12:34 CEST / UTC +2 (12:34 PM), 23rd of June
Ended 00:14 CEST / UTC +2 (12:14 AM), 24th of June


There will be an upcoming maintenance window this weekend.

Since the recent SQL outage a few days ago we noticed how vulnerable our backend have become after several years in active duty. Therefore are we going to take this opportunity to completely redesign our backend, upgrading and changing several key systems to secure the future service of our community and server.

This upcoming maintenance window will result in a server downtime for up to 48 hours, the longest maintence window we have had since the start back in 2011.

  • Date: Saturday - Sunday, 23rd - 24th of June
  • Start time: 12:30 CEST...
Lucky #7: Iciclecraft's Anniversary!!!

Greetings once again my dear friends,

With this coming month of May we have reached yet another milestone of the server as it turns 7 years old! This is indeed noteworthy as we are among the few servers that can hold such an accomplishment within the overarching community of Minecraft. The 1.9 World is now 2 years old and the 1.7 world is 4.5 as of this thread, our longest world to date with both world still showing signs of life.

The past year has not been without its own struggles, if not being our most challenging year to date. Many will note that activity on the server has thinned over time. We've also experienced a few changes in staff with our longtime Admin Kate stepping down for a well-deserved break and introducing Omio and Ziiim as new Moderators. Forums itself has also gone quiet with only occasional threads from time to time, some usage of the chatbox, and a status bar that we will fix soon hopefully! ;) We've also had our fair share of members gone inactive or...

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the land,
Not a single player stirred, anticipated sleep at hand,
Eager for the snowy dawn to rise,
Hopeful of presents, a great surprise!

The season of Winter had come at last,
The members of Iciclecraft wished it not to pass,
For many snow fights, angels, and forts were to be done,
From the first morning light till the setting of the sun!

Quickly, quickly! The players rushed to play,
That silly game called Minecraft, every hour of the day,
Even after a whole new year, more creations were built,
Too many to count without feeling some guilt!

The great Devilish hole of 600 meters,
Lay dormant and hollow, yet retained windy whispers,
Up in the highlands by the Tower of Zot,
Many redstone contraptions were to be planned, perhaps an evil plot?

Dragon's Arena, all readied for battle,
Only some of her builds however, especially the Creative world castle,
But be sure to fill yourself with some more cheer,
Read her comics, you can check...
