*Note that MobArena is disabled until it's fully compatible with Minecraft 1.4

Some changes in Minecraft 1.4:
  • Beacons! - No, not "bacon", but a beam of light to pimp your castle with!
  • Carrots on sticks! - Get on your pig and tell it where to go!
  • Frames & Flower pots! - Finally something to put in your windows. For that cozy, homely feeling.
  • Potatos! Carrots! Pumpkin pies! - An array of pixellated delicacies. Just in time for Halloween!
  • Anvils! - Your sword can now be a "Dragon's Tooth" if you want, or you could just repair it a little.
  • New Boss! Wither! - Better craft a diaper, pal.
  • Wither Skeletons! - Tougher...

Evening! We are happy to announce our latest project this weekend, Tekkit! We decided to join up with the latest mods and gameplay in Minecraft like many other servers around the world. To be able to host this project we've just ordered double amount of RAM, which mean in total we will have 32 GB of dedicated RAM for our servers - Thanks to our provider, Icicle Hosting.

For those of you who doesn't know what this is about, here is some information taken from the Tekkit site:

Technic is a gathering of the best single player (SSP) mods for Minecraft put together in a simple, easy to use package. This is not a typical ‘throw everything in’ type deal, it only contains quality mods from the best modders the community has to offer.

If you’ve played Minecraft before, Technic will re-kindle that sense of discovery when you spawned your first world in vanilla....

Greetings! Tomorrow at 11 AM CEST, the server will be taken offline for up to one hour. This is as our current hoster is upgrading their backup hardware on our dedicated server. This allow us to keep more and larger backups for a more predictable environment.

Meanwhile I'll be updating our plugins and upgrading to a new developer build. Besides that I'm still working with our Wiki pages. If you'd like something to be added into our Wiki, send me or any staff a shout.

I'll keep everyone posted in this thread about the upgrades.

11:12 (CEST)
Backup hardware has been changed at our hoster.

11:18 (CEST)
Currently moving all our old backups to their new system.

Transfer completed.

IcicleCraft's 1.3 Spawn!
  • 1,269
  • 5
Hello fellow members of IcicleCraft!
As many of you may know, our 1.3 world is up and running! Personally, the new spawn looks amazing. Great job, Bavu and Karlziv! Now, to go over a few cool features here at spawn. First off, we have the main spawn building. Here you will find the basic rules of the server and a small back story, as well as portals to the other spawns in the old world. As you proceed out, you will notice the statues of the staff members. There is also a small mob zoo and market in the main courtyard. Outside of the walled area you will find many marvelous wonders made by the staff. You will be taken on a blocky journey to Paris with the Eiffel Tower and an adventure to New York City with the Empire State Building. Dine like royalty at the 5-Star restaurant Beefy Bavu. You will also find the Spawn Shop. This shop sells and buys just about everything in the game. There is also a portal room readily available for you so you can teleport...
Is Minecraft Down?

We've all experienced it, during our time in Minecraft. Instead of seeing people commenting in the Shoutbox and in the forums explaining their anger about Minecraft being down. However, there is a website which does literally inform you if Minecraft is down during that time, with 5 different sections to explain it.

These 5 sections are:

1| Minecraft.net
2| Minecraft Logins
3| Minecraft Multiplayer Sessions
4| Mojang Accounts Website
5| Mojang Accounts Login
If a category is live and online, it will be represented with a green dot, however, if it is represented by a red dot, then it means that it is down and not online during that time. Here is a image showing you what it would look like:

As you...
