Hi everyone, Edy, skiborooster, and BlueFanta136 here.

Before you read the topic of this and start to panic, we would like to stress that NONE of this is official yet, and this is just food for thought. We would like you all to consider this: almost everyone who plays now says that old faction server was more fun than the current Cowcraft factions. And the reason for this, was that we had A LOT more players. We can achieve this again, however we believe that it involves disabling tnt, and making the factions server a great deal simpler.

Back in 2012, as some of you know it was nothing but a factions server. At this point in time the server was thriving, we had a large, loyal player base, and all of the aspects of factions were perfect. Fast forward a bit to 2013 and things were still rolling along, however many of the “veterans” were unhappy with the server. They felt that compared to the other, hardcore...

Hey ya'll
We've upgraded the registration system for the website.
You can now register using /forums register and change your password using /forums password.

We've also added a "Last Seen" feature which will show you if a player is online on the server or not :)

So we finally setup TeamSpeak for CowCraft Network.

What is TeamSpeak?
TeamSpeak is alternative to programs such as Skype, on Skype you have to host the call yourself meaning the call will depend on your internet connection. Skype isn't very secure either and has security holes which can be abused in order to get your IP address. TeamSpeak is hosted on a dedicated server, meaning connection is going to be always good and there is no way of getting a person's IP from TeamSpeak.

How do I get TeamSpeak?
You can download the TeamSpeak client from here: http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads

How do I connect to CowCraft's TeamSpeak server?
After you open the program you will see a tab called "Connections". Click on it, then click on "Connect" and a menu will come up. Here you're able to type server address for the TeamSpeak server which is: ts.cowcraft.net

Hi,
So as all of you have noticed, there aren't as many updates or patches being posted on website. One of the reasons for that is we're working on updating whole network to 1.8 while also implementing support for name changes. That is our top priority at the moment.

There were also some issues with factions update, we didn't test the feature before posting them on website. We had a ton of issues with some of the features which forced us to take down some of the plugins.

Either way, more than a half of the posted features have been already implemented into the server. We're looking into a solution to fix this as soon as possible.
There's a lot going on in the background which is not being posted on website, patch notes will be posted on website this week.

Hello fellow cowcraftians, as most of you know, there was an update where you could change your current username to something new. In addition to that I created a post for you guys to comment what rank you lost and so on, we now have a new efficient way of doing that.

Courtesy of Zenexer you can now post everything that was lost here to this program, http://goo.gl/forms/9JZLNj0cHw
Everything will be kept safely documented and ready for the rank to be added.

If you experience any problems with the program, contact Zenexer.
