Our homepage for our website is finally up! And it is sponsored by a deadly Crafty after some minds. Our head admin minds. (Only took two months <3)
Forums news and announcements were split in two. News will be featured on the homepage whilst Announcements will be for the forums only. Server voting will appear in announcements.
New logo / banner / slogan by AngelWV <3

In order to keep control of homepage news, the News and Announcements forum has been split into two.

The exact criteria of what will be posted where is something to be determined, but it's essentially this:

Things relevant to the community and people outside the community go in News.

Things relevant to the community only go Announcements (server voting, for example).
After much too long of a wait, the homepage is finally live!

There are some people I'd like to thank.

All of you for your patience.

Anyone who gave me feedback when I posted the original mockup on the old forums.

AngelWV for making the extremely sexy logo!

PickYerPoison for the banner of us being chased by Crafty.

Deadl0ck for adding grass under said banner.

GmK for not murdering me in my sleep :D.

I hope you all enjoy it.

BEST VIEWED IN FIREFOX/CHROME/SAFARI.

Edit: If you can't see it, clear your cache.

Edit 2: If you didn't notice, we've also changed our slogan!

Edit 3: We've split the News and Announcements forum into two. Read more here.

I'm sure many of you are aware of the 404 Challenge and using "404" as a seed for when generating a map. This Sunday, August 21st at 3:30PM CDT we will be opening up our own 404 map for a last-man-standing competition! This event requires no registration, and is first-come-first-served, supporting up to 40 players.

3:30pm CDT = 8:30pm GMT = 6:30am AEST Monday 22 Aug - sorry Aussies :(

For those confused - add 1 hour due to DST, so if you're in england, it starts at 9:30 your time, as you guys are currently GMT+1!

The last player alive will be receiving a great something!

A room will be available for voicechat on Teamspeak, as well as the usual in-game chat.

The event will be on its own server, smp.blocktopia.net:25566

The server will open 30 minutes prior to the time the competition begins!

EVENT RULES:
  • The game will start at sunrise and you have until nightfall to gather supplies and make equipment. At nightfall, all players will be teleported en masse back to the spawn point to dive into the gravel pit!
  • You may gather any resources topside you need to make the items of your choice -- TORCHES WILL BE DISABLED, however, so monster spawning can remain largely unaffected.
  • You may use redstone torches, lava (all players will have access to making and using buckets), flint & steel, and jack-o-lanterns as light sources, should you happen to be able to make them.
  • Myself or another Admin/Controller will break ground on the gravel when it is time to descend. At this point, you must ride the waterfall all the way to the bottom! Careful not to fall too far and die on impact!
  • Survive and thrive. Don't simply build a wall around yourself -- players who hide or box themselves in may meet a gruesome fate!
  • Only mine ores that are visible. If you see an ore, you can mine it and the blocks around...

We will be playing Hidden Source this time around.

If you haven't played this mod before, here's a quick run down.

There are two teams, one, is an invisible monster out for human flesh.

The other, is the human team, that the monster wants to kill.

You will need at least one steam game, TF2, Portal, Half Life are just a few.



Here is the download link.

Just a warning, the mod is not in development anymore and has bugs, including bugs that pertain to joining servers.

See you there, happy hunting!
Just before the collapse of the forums, I managed to recover a load of meeting recaps, stretching back to last year. Sadly, I could only get the ones that were 2 - 3 months older, or more. There were so many that I had to put them all in a word doc. So if you want a little 'blast of the past' click on the link below, and download the recaps :).

WELCOME TO OUR NEW FORUMS! :)
The wiki is there but not accessible at the moment, basic setup is required before it goes live. Approximately a day or two.
When you register on the forums your wiki account will automatically be created and linked. However, it will only be editable by wiki editors.
Our new slogan, 'We came, we built, we conquered' has changed 'Rock out with your block out'. Also, credits to AngelWV for the logo.
