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.
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.
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...
Hello faithful friends of iciclecraft!
I have been thinking on making this contest for a while and now it really happens. So say goodbye to the shore and go out on the sea with a 'Ohoj mates!
Where does the contest take place? The contest takes place in the creative world (on the maze area if the name haven't changed)
What is the contest about? In this contest we are building ships, airships and submarines.
In this case you are allowed to build 3 builds (one of each type of ship. And if you build one of each you get bigger change to win.)
The theme is old/fantasy/steampunk. (not modern) Rules and such will be in books on the contest area (they will be in front of the spawn point not hard to miss) Use your imagination so much as you can. (hint: take a look at pictures and others builds to get...
