Today marks our 4th anniversary as a server. It has also been two weeks since Minecraft 1.8. was released. In honor of both occasions, we figured it was about time we put out a new world to play on!
Unfortunately like many servers we've been unable to update our current worlds to 1.8. TNA, for example, relies on plugins that take a long time to update. But not with this world. This world is different.
Introducing Escapecraft Horizons, a new 1.8 server with plugins!Server IP: horizons.escapecraft.com
Horizons works for 1.8. and the plugin API we use - Rainbow
- adds new features to the game. In fact, the developer behind it is updating it so frequently that new features come out almost every day... so expect there to be new stuff added on a regular basis! There will soon be more information below to describe what some of these features are! For now, it's important to note that we've got a locking system to secure your stuff, cuboids for grief protection, and a log of player activity in case of troublemakers. Make sure you stop by the info center to learn how to do all that, plus ride on people's heads!
When you log on to Horizons you will find yourself in the courtyard of an abandoned castle! As the world and its population grows, new areas of the castle will gradually be unlocked, revealing new rooms and characters with unique gameplay! At present, two rooms of the castle are currently open:
- Meet Derigin in the drawing room
to receive a starter kit! Follow the castle's progress here.
- Wokka stands guard over the info center
. Visit to discover new server features before you head out!
As with every other survival world, you can freely explore and build to your heart's content. We encourage our players to embrace community and working together; build roads, rails, towns, empires, whatever you may like. This is your world! We do ask that you abide by our three main rules, though:
1. Don't be a dick
We have zero tolerance for harassment, griefing, trolling, bullying, or anything of that sort. If we find that you are being a dick, you will not be welcome. We log everything, so we will know.
2. Play nice
Be respectful of the other players as well as the staff. Make it so everyone enjoys the game, too.
3. Play fair
No cheats, no hacks, none of that BS. Please also don't whine, or get upset, or do things that obviously would upset others. Use common sense and play the game reasonably.
If you can stick to these golden rules, then you - yourself - will be golden!
In any case, we hope you enjoy the new world. Please feel free to ask for help, to offer suggestions, or even to criticize us (but do so constructively!). We're here to make sure you're having a good time and that this hobby is enjoyed by all. We look forward to your creations!
