General Information

Opticraft is a non-PVP survival server. It is fitted with ranks, economy, and an anti-grief system to enhance your playing experience. Take the time and type /rules on the server for a list of our rules. All we ask is that you respect other players and follow the rules while on our server.

Our server has a multiple world system. The world you spawn in is the Guest world and is accessible by anyone. The other worlds include older Guest worlds, a Member+ world and a PVP arena world for private battles. To become a Member simply sign up on this website, you will automatically gain access to it! It is highly recommended you build on Member worlds as they are less likely to be griefed.

    Players that are trusted by the Senior Staff of the server (Operators and Admins). They have the ability to place water and can apply for the Moderator rank. There is no set requirement for this rank, just be sociable, get well known, and most importantly, do NOT ask to be promoted.

The server has an economy system. As a player, you have a credit balance which can be used to purchase items from the market or players. To see how much money you or another player have, type /balance <name>. To view the richest players on the server, type /balancetop. You can exchange goods and credits with other players with /pay <name> or with the server's market. To access the market area use the warp /warp market.

Inside the market there are items on display with signs below or above them. Right click the sign on the [buy] to buy the number of that item that is displayed on the sign. Right click the sign on the [sell] to sell the number of that item displayed on the sign.

Market signs example
Please note that not all items are available to be bought or sold at the market.

If you are looking to trade items or services with another player, use the trade chat channel to buy and sell them. See the Chat Channel section for information on changing channels.

Price: $750

Protection size: 21x21x21
Price: $6,000

Market signs example Diamond Ore
This is the largest protection stone we offer, it protects a very large area, 8 times the size of the lapis protection stone. Use this to protect large builds and whole towns.

Protections (Blocks)

Opticraft uses LWC to protect chests, doors and other personal items ingame. This plugin enables users to protect their items so that no one is able to steal from them or use them without permission.

By default any door, chest, furnace and trapdoor you place will automatically be protected so that only you can access it. However, sometimes you will want to allow other players to access your protections, or you may want to remove the protection altogether. Use the following commands to do just that!

/cmodify <name> - Allow someone else to access the protection.
/cmodify <name> - Remove someone's ability to access the protection.
/cremove - Remove the protection alltogether.
/cpassword <password> - Set a password on the protection.

If at any time you feel overwhelmed by the chat, you can use /deafen to mute everyone besides staff members.

There are a number of other channel commands. To see an up to date list, simply type /ch help ingame.
