Crafting blocky adventures since 2010!

<Draccy> Something is coming.04/10/2017

A Draccyserv Tradition

As has been the case since 2013, we had a lull in server administration that left a big gap in the news. Nothing serious.

Suddenly: Control

The new snapshots have introduced something very special to the toolkit given to mapmakers and servers. We will soon have control over recipes and achievements (now called Advancements). This will allow us to strap RPG-like accomplishments to natural Minecraft gameplay. It really feels like the missing piece to the puzzle that has been Draccyserv's directives. We've always wanted to change the general structure of the game, to give people a reason to explore our map. Plans to engineer quest objectives using command blocks were devised, but implementation was difficult. Now we are being handed the keys to the gameplay!

Stubbornly Dedicated

As usual, I've refused to give up on this old server. We've been online since 2010 with hardly a day of downtime, with the same center of the map since the day we launched. It's something to be proud of, really. Minecraft is a tired game, now. A lot of young folks play it on consoles, but the PC game is largely abandoned. It would, for example, impress me to find out that somebody read this news update before May of 2017. Even so, these new changes are exciting. Maybe we'll get that old magic back.
