Since we did not bring a lot of the worlds from the old creative server to the new network, they are all available for download from the following link.
After long discussions with optical, tobs, alicia, and deekay, we feel it would be in the servers best interests to make some changes and try to get people interested in the server again.
Proposed changes include:
- Simplification or removal of the economy system.
- Addition of pvp modes
- Addition of a player trading system
- Points system where players accumulate points for things like voting and doing everyday survival activities. These points can be used to buy protection or rare items.
- Change to a player defined protection field system
We believe these changes will create more of a survival feel to the server and encourage players to return to the server that they may have gotten bored with. Keep in mind these are all just proposed changes and we really want to know what you guys think about them because at the end of the day, it is really what you guys want, not us.
Today we would like to introduce to you our new server currently in development; OptiQuest!
OptiQuest is a complex MMORPG Minecraft server. We have been working on this for quite some time as it's a very big undertaking for us all. We are using custom plugins wherever we can, making it a unique experience from other servers. This also gives us complete control and creative freedom over how the server works, and makes things like bug fixing a lot faster and more efficient.
These are the people that are making the development of OptiQuest possible.
We're currently a very small team, but are planning on expanding in the future.
Developers: Nick3306, xDeeKay
Builders: TheWholeLoaf, Tobs74, 100Penguin, UnknownHedgehog, Astriii, Tiggy, Fireball4801
Current and Future Features
When will this be available? Great question, and the answer is we really donít know. As stated above, this is a very large project for us, and we all have lives outside of Minecraft. Currently the server is in heavy development stages, however we plan to have an alpha version of the server out somewhere around spring for people to help us test. In the mean time, we plan to share a few videos and posts of various things throughout the development process, ranging from time lapses of some builds, to a sneak peak at the code behind all this awesomeness.
Please stay tuned as we have a lot in-store over the coming months. Discussions and questions are always welcome, and we hope you're all excited as we are for the things to come!

Its back up at the creative.opticraft.net IP again!
I have started working on an auction house system for the smp server and would like input/suggestions on any specific features you may want to see.
How the plugin will work so far is you can put up any item in your inventory for auction and it will stay up for auction for a set amount of time(to be determined later). During this time, other player can bid on the item and obviously the highest bid at the end of the time wins.
/auction sell (blockID) (amount) (starting bid)
/auction list // lists all the current auctions
/auction listmine //list all the auctions you have bid on or have put up yourself
/auction cancel (auction ID)
So we have been contemplating on how to improve the servers economy and we came up with 2 possible solutions.
1. An auction system that is server side. A player would put their items up for auction and others can bid on it.
2. An alternative way to make money. We are not exactly sure what the ways would be but it would be something along the lines of killing certain mobs or getting achievements and receiving money for them.
Any other suggestions are also welcome.
We are pleased to announce that everything in the creative donation store is 25% off for the next 3 days for the holidays. On top of that, we have cut the prices of the private world size upgrade's permanently. So you get 25% off of the already cut price.
You can also access creative donations from the forum itself now.
Happy holidays people!
The sale is now over.
A few sources are saying microsoft may buy mojang for around $2billion
Tobs and I have been working on a small private creative server for the past few months. Thanks to the help of deekay we officially began testing it by opening it to staff members and are almost ready to release it to you guys. The plan is to open up the server on sunday around 4pm eastern time.
The server is set up to be as close to the classic server as possible, it is a freebuild server with different worlds for each rank. Ranks will not carry over from classic or smp so everything starts off fresh.
I know sunday is still a few days away but I would rather let people know in advance than to spring it on you guys unexpectedly. We will edit the IP into this post once it is released.
Welcome to the Hall of Fame application, the Hall of Fame is going to be a building in the member world with warp points to some of opticrafts best builds. It will be extremely hard to get your build into the hall of fame and it is supposed to be along the lines of crafter quality builds for those of you who were around on classic. There are no benefits other than having your build recognized as one of the best.
In order to qualify for the Hall of Fame, your build must first meet the following pre-requisites.

Due to school and some other real life stuff I have to sort out, I am no longer able to hop on the server all the time. So we have decided to promote Tobs74 to admin. Tobs has been here for a very long time and is the best guy for this job. Make sure to congratulate him when you see him in game.
We have just launched the new market! Use /warp market to get there from any world. Along with the new market, we have reduced a few prices like diamonds, quartz, and a few others.
This also means that all of the previous markets will no longer be able to be accessed.
After the long wait, the new member world is now accessible by using /warp memberworld !
A great thanks to all of the staff members that made this possible.
The warp to the old member world is now /warp oldmemberworld.
Unfortunately we could not launch the new market with the new world since the 1.7 update has caused a problem with using item frames in the market. You can see a preview of what the market will look like by viewing it on the new guest world live map if you can find it.
I am making this post to inform you all that I will be removing the ability to sell iron and gold ingots to the market next sunday. Gold and iron ore will still be sell-able to the market, so those who get their iron and gold from mining will not be effected by this. This decision wasn't made lightly and an overwhelming majority of our staff agrees with it. We feel having players just afk to collect iron/gold is not only wrong, but takes away from the community aspect of the server. I also plan to go through the market and examine the prices of current items and see what i should increase or decrease seeing as the prices have pretty must stood since we started the server and things within the game have changed.
Please keep all your questions or complaints to this thread as I don't want the support or suggestions areas getting blown up with posts.
EDIT: Protection stones have been reduced in price.
