Who Are We?

What are you doing here?
We have a real site as of 3-3-2012!
Trust us, it looks and feels better there!
MCDen @ Mine-Craft-Den.com

Other than just another random creative and survival server, we aim to do things differently than other servers dare: Allow and Do more than those pesky instructions say.

Join us on our server either by the game itself, or in Dynmap. We are running MineCraft 1.4.7 with Craftbukkit/Spigot and Spout. Spout Craft is Optional, But Preferred.

                  Updates, replacements, WHEN!

                  The test and tinker server has been going on well, though 1.9 hasn't been released yet, won't by until MineCon has announced it's release.
                  Until then, the test server has yielded some nice yet interesting results. We've decided to keep a simple, three category list of plugins, mainly to help debug any issues.

                  The first list is Essential plugins. These are plugins that need to be running for others to work properly, or they are security plugin. Some plugins in this list are more important than others; by keeping a 1-10 scale of importance will help other Server Maintainers know what can be disabled and what can not depending on the issues. Very helpful if they do not know all the details of each plugin and how they are used.

                  The second list are fun-on-the-side plugins. They are the icing on the cake for enjoyment and fun. Examples would be iChat for colored chat for groups and general talk, and ChairCraft, allowing you to sit in "chairs".

                  The third list are for cycled bi-weekly plugins. This is a new addition to keep things interesting. Every two weeks, one, or a combination of certain plugins, will be enabled on the server. One of my current favorites is Blood Moon.

                  Details on these lists will be released when 1.9 has been released, but CraftBukkit has not.
                  Until MC 1.9 is released, we will continue to tinker, add/remove, and tweak server plugins. We are trying to add as much interest yet simplicity to the server without too much redundancy. I like the use of CommandBook and Teleplusplus, but both have similar abilities, Teleporting. But Tele++ has more power then CommandBook. Same with Commandbook and xWarps. But we are implementing  the Commandbooks Home system.

                  I am also adding in the use Spout, which some of it's side plugins are nice. I'm still debating if I'm going to implement the Splash Screen Image. I would rather have a screen show up where I can add text for news and information, kinda like garry's mod servers.
