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.

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.

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...

We are in progress of setting up new permissions system which will fix all of rank tags.
It will also give us a lot more control and easier access to permissions of whole network.

Setup might take up to a hour.​

Hello everyone, there were a few glitches with our mcmmo plugin on factions. We need to wait for mcmmo to update for them to fix. The glitches were pretty bad, so mcmmo is disabled on factions for now.

You WILL get to keep all your mcmmo points and skills once we are done updating the plugin, thank you for your patience, and we will expect this update within the next few days.

EDIT:

Mcmmo has been fixed and all of stats have been restored!

Hello all, there is some confusion when people are applying for helper. I will outline a few things to avoid this in the future.

Question: What is your timezone?
This question is referring to the timezone you live in. We thought this question was pretty self explanatory but an astounding amount of players only put the state or city they live in as an answer, not their actual timezone.

Question: What server do you normally play on?
This question is referring to the server on CowCraft. We want to know what server you play on frequently because we need more staff on some than on others.

The servers that we currently have are:
Kit-PvP, Factions, Creative, Skyblock, CowCade and Survival


Quick Edit: I would also like to point something out. If you don't bother using correct grammar in your application, your application will be denied.

Hopefully this clears up...
