Hello there fellow cows!
First off I do want to apologize about the down time we had few days ago. Our hard drives were overloaded with 2 TB of data which caused few problems. The issue is now fixed and should not happen again in the future.

Towny, we been testing a lot of towny features and fixing the pain in the ass chat format, as towny uses its own chat system which is a bit derpy. Anyways, I am sure no one cares about that so let's get to the good part.
The release date of Towny is October 28 (tomorrow). No I DO NOT have the exact hour, minute, second or millisecond it comes out. So don't sit whole day and spam staff about towny release, go out and milk some cows while we prepare.
When towny comes out, do not expect all of features to be in place. Towny has a massive list of features which will be added after server is out. For the people who want to see map, here you go http://cowcraft.net/livemap
The world is 10k x 10k blocks size. The live map will also show your...

Hello fellow cows,

Today we have pushed a pretty big update. The new hub doesn't have portal to factions server anymore, but that doesn't mean factions is gone forever. What we wanted to do is only leave functional servers in hub to prevent any confusion, we are going to add one by one of new servers as soon as they are ready for testing. Our current priority is: Creative -> Towny -> HungerGames -> Factions.

As you also noticed cowcade portal was removed too, however you can still access cowcade using /server cowcade. We are going to remove that server as soon as we setup new minigames and new hungergames in the main hub. The goal with new HungerGames is to bring back old good lobby with the known features and on top of that add new features too.

Patch #1

Survival:
- Added a lot of new features in /ccshop

Factions:
- Added a lot of new features in /ccshop

Creative:
- Added a lot of new features in /ccshop

Hub
- The spawn has been expanded, @BlueFanta136 and...

As you noticed, cowcraft has been inactive for a bit now. The main reason is because bukkit is not going to be a option to run servers on in near future. However there are other softwares coming up, like sponge and glowstone. Sponge does not support plugins from bukkit, meaning every single plugin will break. This also means developing plugins for bukkit software is just waste of time as all of them will break anyways.

So, our current plan is to stick with 1.7.10 version of minecraft till 1.8 is fully stable which may take months. However we are planning on using 1.8 protocol hack to allow 1.8 clients to connect to the server. This would be 100% optional but I do believe a lot of people don't even know how to change version of mc and server would get more traffic if we did support 1.8 clients. However, protocol hack does not mean full 1.8. It only allows 1.8 clients to join and that's about it, there are also many many bugs with this protocol hack. Like memory leaks, client crashes...

Hey guys!

I've been getting this question endlessly! Why are we not updating to 1.8?

Well there are a few reasons, so lets start.

As most of you know, the server software is made by Bukkit. A few weeks ago, EvilSpeh, the main developer of Bukkit said that he wasn't going to continue the project due Mojang's incompetence with all of the EULA drama.
After that issues, Jeb stated that they've "owned" Bukkit along and the project wasn't EvilSpeh's to discontinue. This was taken very hardly from the modding community and personally for me as well, Mojang has owned Bukkit all along but has not provided any code mappings (Minecraft is closed source, Mappings would've made Bukkit much easier to update) towards the development of their "own" software.

Before the news of Mojang acquiring Bukkit became available, Bukkit was being released with the GPL License (General Public License), this meant that it could not be owned by a corporation such as Mojang.

When...

After problems with hard drive, factions world was griefed and some files have been corrupted. Sadly factions will have to reset, however I did dislike a lot of things about factions server which will be changed in new one.

New factions server will include:
- New spawn (more professional)
- New mob arena
- New areas (small things like information about server and other)
- New pvp arena
- New factions wars
- New shop
- Levels
You will be able to get ranks by leveling up, every rank will have 10 levels. In order to get a new level you will have to use in-game money. Each rank will include perks such as (/enderchest), the point of this is to have a goal in game and to also allow non donors to get donor perks.
- Crates
You will be able to buy or find keys, with keys you will be able to open different type crates and get a random items (spawners/weapons/armor/more+)
- CowCoins Shop
- New end world
You won't be able to claim any land in it, however you will be able to break blocks.

I...

Hello everyone!

The current stage of server is pretty unfinished, we are still at beta stage and in progress to get everything working.
Now, the factions server has been whitelisted and there has been some downtime for whole cowcraft network. The reason for this is because our hard drives have failed, nothing has been lost. However because of this incident factions server has been damaged, more information about factions server will be posted soon.

Right now we have teamed up with Essentials plugin founder, also known as "Zenexer" which will be helping us with server hosting and server management.

At the moment we have three different developers working on custom plugins for network, Red vs Blue early testing should start this weekend.
I haven't got much information on CowZ project, but it is work in progress. CowZ plugins is going to be one of more advanced minez type plugins meaning it will take longer to finish it. However it also opens possibilities for more features in...
