What is a Powder?

A Powder is a bunch of particles that can have a picture, sound, or just a dusty effect. Here are some examples:

**Particles need to enabled in settings to be able to see Powders
**Powders near the world border will look strange


18 Powders are available, and more will come soon. They are available for various VIP tiers, listed on our donation page. You can access Powders with /powder.

Please report all issues you come across to a staff member!

Happy Holidays from Ruinscraft!

All packages on our donation page are 50% off from today to January 2nd. Soon, we'll be introducing some new extras for Creative Infinite, so stay tuned! Visit our donation page at donate.ruinscraft.com.

Today, we will be closing the Creative Infinite Beta to prepare for the full release of the server on December 20th. All current claims/builds on the server will be cleared -- we'll be making a few changes to the server during its downtime, including some changes to the size of each claim. We're excited for the release, and we hope you join us for it!

Our Christmas giveaway ended yesterday, and the winners are Briezzy55 and FireNinja52YT! If they do not claim their rewards by 3:00PM EST on the 19th, new winners will be chosen. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Thanks for a great 2017! We're super excited for what we have planned for 2018. Have a wonderful Christmas!

EDIT: Since one of the winners of the giveaway did not contact us within 3 days, a new winner was redrawn. The winner of the redraw is Roux007. This person will also have 3 days to contact an administrator and claim their prize.

Good afternoon!

It’s been quite a while since our initial hint at this project, but we’re finally ready to release the basic info for Creative Infinite. So, here’s the burning question… (please read the entire post, it affects all of Ruinscraft!)

What is Creative Infinite?

In a summary, Creative Infinite is a Creative server inside of a regular Minecraft world, implementing the various features of Creative Plots. Players can claim 16 (subject to change) 32x32 plots of natural terrain, called “claims”, and can gain more of these claims through playtime and other ways. There are no plot roads, so claims are merged automatically if you own two next to each other.

Creative Infinite was designed to be a revised version of our previously popular server commonly known as “Main” or “Freebuild”, which was the original gamemode of Ruinscraft when we first opened to the public in 2012.

If you are familiar with “Main” and familiar with our Creative Plots server, then you will mostly feel familiar with Creative Infinite as it is designed to be a combination of the two. The name Creative Infinite comes from the idea that you are not restricted to a plot of land in an empty, boring flat world, but rather, you are able to venture out and find areas you like and claim them in a normally generated Minecraft world.

On Creative Infinite, you will default to Creative mode, like Creative Plots, but are able to change to any gamemode you please (survival, adventure, creative, and spectator).

Creative Infinite will be using the same plot management system our current Creative Plots server does (PlotSquared), so you will automatically be familiar with the functionality and all the commands if you are familiar with Creative Plots.

You will be able to build on any claimed land you own, or are added to. You will not be able to build on unclaimed land. Think of it like Creative Plots; you can only build on plots / claims you have permission to.

Much like Creative Plots, we will have a block logging plugin that will allow you to see who has placed or destroyed blocks in the world. Griefing will not be permitted on this server.

In Creative Infinite, you will be able to use WorldEdit, just like you have been able to on our Creative Plots server. We are still allowing unrestricted1 WorldEdit that is accessible without voting, donations, or any other prerequisites. This is something that we value our players have access to. WorldEdit is an essential part of the creative/building experience and we would never hinder our players’ ability to use it freely.

An example of a person building on a single claim on Creative Infinite:​

The walls in this image represent the edge of the claim, showing that the claim owner built a wall signifying the edge of where they can build. Claims extend from bedrock to the build height limit.

An example of a person building on 3 claims on Creative Infinite:​
[​IMG]

1 block is spaced between regular claims -- however, these claims automatically merge if you own two claims next to each other, removing this 1 block gap.

We also plan to incorporate multiple worlds into the server, including the nether, end, and possibly more than one overworld. These alternate worlds may or may not be VIP exclusive.

Many players have requested the popular world manipulation plugin, VoxelSniper. We are currently looking into the possible implementation of this plugin on Ruinscraft but it is uncertain at this time if we will add it.

What other changes will there be?

Ruinscraft Social Update

With the addition of Creative Infinite, we are aiming to create more of an interconnected gameplay experience throughout our network, so that friends and players can talk and work together easily through separate servers. We’ve planned a number of changes to coincide with the release of Creative Infinite, to allow for connected gameplay between each server. These changes are titled the Ruinscraft Social update.Perhaps one of the largest changes of the Ruinscraft Social update that will affect all players is our new chat system. We believe that it is essential to keep the community connected across all of our servers, instead of segregated, with stagnant chats on servers which have little players. For this reason, we have decided to create a cross-server chat which will be active on all servers on Ruinscraft. It will be much like the /global and /local system on our Creative Plots server now. The commands will be the same -- /global will put you in the cross-server...

Hey everyone! It’s been quite some time since our last VIP rank giveaway during Christmas of 2016, so we’ve decided that it’s time for another one!

This time around, we will be giving away two VIP rank upgrades to one lucky winner. This means if you were VIP 2 and you won the giveaway, you would be upgraded to VIP 4. In order to enter this giveaway, type the command /enter on the creative or the hub server. This command will add your username to a list which will be used to randomly select the winner. The winner will be announced and notified on November 23rd, 2017.

Good evening,

After a long period of planning and working, we're finally prepared to release our newest update to Skyblock!

New features include:
  • A market with 36 rentable shops, with enough space to sell pretty much anything
  • Double the challenges, with spooky new rewards
  • A new custom Nether island
  • A PvP arena below the spawn
  • 4 new custom starter islands
  • A complete reset, to give some fairness for all the new features
  • Some things for you to discover!

This huge update will take place on Saturday, July 15th. Prior to that, at 5:00 PM EST on Monday, July 10th, the Skyblock server will become whitelisted for testing until release, which means the current map will be removed this Monday.

Alongside our Skyblock release is a brand new Hub, built by the Ruinscraft Build Team! The build team has been hard at work to create new fantastic things for the server, such as new builds around Plots spawn, Skyblock builds, this brand new hub, and so much more. Just look at this sick preview of our new hub:

Looking forward to the release! Make sure to join us at https://plug.dj/ruinscraft for the release party.
