Hi all,

We are officially launching (or relaunching) our Store! If you're interested in supporting Ruinscraft while getting some perks on our servers, consider purchasing a rank at: https://store.ruinscraft.com

For the launch, we are offering a 15% package discount until Monday, the 10th!

*Please note we had technical difficulties with our payment processor for Subscription packages. We are working to get those fixed. For this launch, we are only offering the standard "lifetime" packages.

Hi everyone!

I am proud to announce that we are releasing some changes to our ranks. Every current and future Ruinscraft server will now have a rank called “Sponsor.” On MCPLOTS, Sponsor will replace all VIP Tiers. No rank changes will occur on MCATLAS as Sponsor already exists.

When will the change happen?

The changes will happen gradually over the next couple of days. It will take time to transition all of our systems to support the new Sponsor rank.

Who will get it?

If you have previously purchased a VIP Tier at any time in history, you will receive The Ruinscraft Bundle for lifetime, which includes Sponsor on all servers. We are grateful for your support which allows Ruinscraft to operate day to day.

What will it get?

Sponsor will receive different perks depending on the server.

MCPLOTS Perks
  • 1 free plot per month
  • The ability to merge plots
  • The ability to set plot flags
  • The ability to walk and fly faster
  • The ability to color text on signs
  • The ability to use /localcolor to change your username's color in the /local Plot Channel
  • The ability to teleport to anyone instantly with /tp
  • Higher view distance (great for screenshots!)
  • Use Pets
  • Use Disguises
  • Use Powders (songs and fancy particle effects)

MCATLAS Perks
  • Teleport to any real life location (Example: /goto New York City)
  • Higher view distance (great for screenshots!)
  • Hide yourself on the online map
  • Wear an item as a hat
  • Check who tamed a pet
  • Get skulls of players you kill
  • More rewards for voting
  • Use Powders (songs and fancy particle effects)

Ruinscraft Bundle Perks:
  • Receive Sponsor on all current and future Ruinscraft servers, including the Ruinscraft Hub
  • Ability to fly in the Ruinscraft Hub
Pricing Model:

Sponsor (any single server)
$30 for lifetime OR $3 /mo​
Ruinscraft Bundle (includes Sponsor on all current and future servers)
$50 for lifetime OR $5 /mo​

*Keep in mind that we sometimes have sales!

You can now experience The End on MCATLAS!

How to get there:

You can only get to an End World with an End Portal. End Portals open randomly every 12-24 hours and stay open for 1 hour. There is a new End World each time an End Portal spawns. This means there will be a new dragon fight, new resources to loot, etc. The End World gets deleted once all players have left the world.

How to find an End Portal:
End portals spawn randomly in the Earth World. You'll have to track them down by either following where lightning strikes or by using Eyes of Ender.

More on End Worlds:
  • Once the End Portal that goes to an End World closes, there is no way to get back.
  • You can always get back to the Earth World from an End World. The portal in the End does not close.
  • You cannot place containers in an End World (much like the Nether)
  • There is a buffer time between reboots/player logouts so that the world won't get deleted immediately if the server goes down or you log off.
  • There can technically be multiple End Worlds loaded at the same time. This can happen if players stay in one End World while it's portal closes and wait until a new portal opens.
  • There is PvP in every End World
More on End Portals:
  • An End Portal is not a physical build with blocks, rather a cylinder of particle effects you must stand in.
  • Lightning strikes at the location of an End Portal every few minutes.
  • An End Portal closes after 1 hour of being open.
  • End Portals open every 12-24 hours at a random location in the world.
  • You must stand in an End Portal for 10 seconds before you are teleported to the End World it goes to.
  • An End Portal will not spawn in a Town claim.
  • You cannot make a Town claim by an active End Portal.
We will have an End Portal open at the time of this post so you can experience it.

EDIT: First End Portal has closed. GG to all who found it.

All,

It is time to completely drop our Skyblock & Creative Infinite servers. I am sure this will come of no surprise to most of you. We are upgrading our internal software systems and can no longer make the case to support Skyblock & Creative Infinite.

The only case to be made for continuing to host these servers was to keep the worlds online for people to cherish memories and admire previous builds. This is why we are offering world downloads for both servers.
Skyblock World Info:
Compressed download size: 109 MB
Size: 617 MB
Island coordinates (also included with the download): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16W5FmkQfaljuZr0_Rfs9mXz274MTz3omKzMZRg3JprA/edit?usp=sharing
World download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pFVy8J9J6FHwY9-YqzVZyfzlyRj9KDle/view?usp=sharing

Creative Infinite World Info:
Compressed download size: 1.3 GB
Size: 1.6 GB
Plot coordinates (also included with the download): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HM4VJYLq5hAP_0U8lMF9gOUNmOXb3Q3SjWZ9H0kdkhI/edit?usp=sharing
World download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VGRB2dc0fF91IqVc9rPztqlVe0aZW2tQ/view?usp=sharing

Finding your builds:
Use the Island/Plot coordinate files on Google Docs (or included with the downloads) to find your builds on the singleplayer worlds. You can teleport to coordinates with /tp <x> <y> <z>

Installing the worlds:
1. Unzip/decompress the downloaded .zip file
2. Move the decompressed folder to your Minecraft saves folder
3. Launch Minecraft Singleplayer and load the world

If you need help installing the world, please leave a reply on this post. I will be glad to help.

Hi everyone,

It's July 1st, exactly one year since the release of our MCAtlas server!

To celebrate, we're having our second ever Powder hunt on MCAtlas. Powders are particle effects and noteblock songs which you can display. There are over 30 clues to find in /clues, with each clue related to MCAtlas history! Each clue is located in a semi-hidden spot in each Town the clue references.

You know you've found a clue when you see this rotating rainbow column:


Along with our Powder hunt, we'll also be doing double gold voting for the length of the event! All of this will last for one week, ending on July 8th.

We've had lots of fun for the first year of MCAtlas, and we're excited for what's in store this year. Happy hunting!

Hi all,

Some early April updates for you!

MCPLOTS
We have been working on some revisions to Ruinscraft to make it more attractive to new players (and old players alike). One of those changes includes a rebranding of our famous Creative Plots server.

As many of you know, we have had success with our MCATLAS branding, website, etc. We want to bring the same love to our Creative Plots server with MCPLOTS.

You can connect to MCPLOTS right now with play.mcplots.net

What about Ruinscraft?
You may be thinking, "okay... they're getting rid of Ruinscraft and just have MCATLAS and MCPLOTS now."

This is far from the truth. Ruinscraft will stand as the organization which makes all the gamemodes/servers you enjoy playing. Think of Ruinscraft as the overarching owner/creator of our gamemodes/servers. It's easier for people to understand that MCPLOTS is a creative server and MCATLAS is an Earth towny server rather than: Ruinscraft is a combined creative and towny server.

The Ruinscraft Hub will still be accessible with mc.ruinscraft.com and will display our current gamemodes (MCATLAS and MCPLOTS).

Creative Infinite & Skyblock
It has informally been the case that Creative Infinite and Skyblock are no longer officially supported but still exist for anyone who chooses to continue playing. This will continue to be the case.

The portals to Creative Infinite and Skyblock will likely be removed at some point, but they will still be accessible via command.

Ruinscraft Store

Some large changes will be coming to the Ruinscraft Store very soon. The Ruinscraft Store will continue to be the place where you can purchase ranks and other items for our servers (MCATLAS and MCPLOTS).

FAQ
Q:
Will the world/my plots be reset?
A: Nope

I will gladly answer any other questions you may have. Feel free to post them below.

MCAtlas Players,

Yes, the server is laggy. It's quite possibly the most limiting feature we have to deal with. For example, we've had to severely limit mob spawns, reduce render distance, etc...

It is my primary focus to fix the lag and find a better way to scale our Minecraft server. As only then can we begin working on supporting new features.

I want to let you know that we are working on a system to enable us to:
  • Support many more players
  • Update Minecraft versions (to 1.15/1.16)
  • Increase mob limits
  • Increase render distance
I hope to give you more details within the coming months.

Hey!

Our Minecraft servers are back online!
We would like to apologize once again for the couple days of down time. I hope you all can enjoy your holiday break and maybe play some Minecraft while you're at it! We have a few festive things planned for the upcoming week so stay tuned!

For the holidays, we have a 50% off sale on everything in our store
https://donate.ruinscraft.com/



A note on the MCAtlas Sponsor rank:
We have many features in the works for the Sponsor rank. We would also like to hear your ideas for perks in #ideas. By purchasing any VIP Tier on Ruinscraft now, you will automatically get the Sponsor rank. In the future, the Sponsor rank will be a separate purchase.

Hi everyone. We have been hit pretty hard with traffic the past few days, causing the server to remain offline (obviously).

We've been in contact with our hosting provider and they have segregated our server from the rest of their network to prevent further damage. All of the server files and worlds are safe despite the rumors.

We will unfortunately be forced to remain offline until today or tomorrow when the network segregation has lifted. I really apologize for the down time and can guarantee you we will do our best to prevent this in the future. For the record, our current host does indeed have DDoS mitigation. We don't have exact numbers right now but we do know it was in the many hundreds of Gbps and was able to saturate their network.

P.S: Make sure to join our Discord to talk to other users and stay updated on the current state of the server! This announcement was posted there yesterday, and copied to here.
