KingdomCraft Season 5

Season 4 Ending Soon.....

Season 4 will be ending once the 1.20 Bedrock update is officially released, some players are still working on base builds in Season 4, but like always in these Survival Servers, player numbers are dropping for many reasons.

Balancing a server around all these reasons is near impossible, the reasons range from New players not wanting to compete with full Netherite bullies, to players that get full Netherite gear and then give up thinking the game is finished!!! but that's just one end of the scale, at the other we have players that have built a huge base and start running out of ideas or they just get busy in real life. Whatever the reason, we are just here to provide the experience, we are focused on trying to create a family friendly, community based server.

With season 4 ending it will be added to the Previous Servers section in Servers on this website, it will have all the add-ons removed and be in Spectator only mode, Season 3 is also hosted.

Voting ... mainly for Season 5

We have been posting many Votes in the Discord voting channel for Changes to be made in Season 5, thank you to all that took the time to Vote.

Voting Results and Changes as Below:

  • 061: The previous 2 servers will now be hosted in Spectator only mode.
  • 062: Shopping district will now have standard 40x40 plots, in a more protected grid fashion.
  • 063/069: Mini-Games we had 2 Votes on this - Conclusion - A New server is now Hosted for Mini-Games.
  • 064: Kingdom HQ plots, Each Kingdom will get a plot of 100x100 in size around the spawn area, most likely in some form of grid pattern.
  • 065: TP between the Kingdom HQ and Kingdom Base area, this will be added. 5 hours or more of game play to use TPs.
  • 066: FoxyNoTails Mob Head Add-on - this is going to be in Season 5, but only if it generates no issues with our Anti-Hack system etc.
  • 067: Importing Destroyed Kingdom Bases from backups, is a YES, but only for genuine players, maybe Voted on dependant on kingdoms game play.
  • 068: Season 5 the Kingdom HQ, Shopping District and Spawn will be Fully NON PVP.
  • 069: Covered above in 063:
  • 070: Many players complained in Season 4 of being killed. but this vote, the margin is not great enough for me to pass it, but funny thing some of the players that complained the most about being killed, Voted no on this.

  • So that covers off all the voting etc, many changes are being made and some are already done, like the mini-games server.

    Mini-Games Server

    As per the voting, this has now been made a separately hosted server, and can be found in the servers section on this site.

    What is On this server?

    Not setting Spawn at some games or forgetting to set spawn at others can majorly effect your Games experience

    Drip Leaf Spleef:
    Run round on a bed of drip leaves knocking out blocks below your opponents, win by being the player not falling, while spectators can also throw snow balls at you.

    Slime Spleef:
    Run round on a bed of slime blocks knocking out blocks below your opponents, win by being the player not burning in lava below.

    Castle Defence:
    Castle Defence is a little more complicated, it does require 2 or more players to even activate the game.
    Objective - Hit all other teams targets on the tower.
    Game Play:
  • 2 players start game.
  • Set spawn.
  • Gear up on Red or Blue Team.
  • Players can fight on the Ground or from the tower.
  • If you exit an iron door, returning is only by someone opening it or death.
  • Ground level is PVP direct combat.
  • Lower tower level allows a player to press buttons that reset targets, while being shot at!!
  • Upper Level is bow shooting, players/targets.
  • On winning the team will be announced.
  • To play again 2 players must go down to reset the game again.

  • Mini PVP Arena:
    Just a small PVP arena this is located at the top of the Pyramid, all gear available in Arena.

    Giant PVP Area 300x300 blocks with border warning and TP:
    This is a standard style Game Play PVP battle area, all OP items available from the area.
    Set Spawn, Collect Gear, GO MAD!!!

    Capture The Flag:
    This one is fairly self explanatory, but Set Spawn, get gear, run for the ball in the chest at the other end of the field, try not to die, bring it back to your goal area and drop ball in. First team to 9 wins.
    Note: the Game Reset is in the Red teams area.

    Zombie Island:
    Oh My this one is from BorgWarner... Good luck people, this is pure Zombie Hell, eventually you are just going to die, but how long can you last, many variations of armor and weapons available, the choice is yours.
    Don't Forget to Set Spawn!!!

    1 - 5 Player Target Bow Range:
    Simple bow range game, first player to hit the target 5 times wins, but what is this you say? Hard mode? oh yeah once a player hits a target, all other player scores drop by one, could be at it all day :-)

    1 - 2 Player Target Bow Range Race:
    This one you reset game at the start, collect items, enter your side of the rooms, Left/Right. Once in the room stand on the pressure plate and hit the target with an arrow. Wait about 1 second then turn to enter the next room and repeat. The winner of this game is the first one to exit the last room after hitting all targets. Each room illuminates lights above the room, so you cannot cheat.
    What this is too easy you say? well use the book to select easy to insane modes.... Good Luck

    Season 5 In the Making...

    As you know we are well into the process of developing the Builds etc for Season 5, we do not have a Confirmed date that Season 5 will officially be starting yet, but expect it to be within the next 3 weeks. Season 5 is dependent on the 1.20 Bedrock update being officially released, as we want the world to be 100% 1.20 generated.

    We have tried many variations of game play in previous servers, striking a balance between PVP and Toxic behaviour and normal Game Play / Builders is always a challenge. Season 5 we are hopeful that kingdoms will unite together more for trade etc.

    Changes for season 5:

  • Grid style Shopping District, 40x40 blocks usable area with better protection in place.
  • Kingdom HQ plots near spawn, 100x100 build area to show off your Kingdoms. We may have a best built vote on these.
  • A TP that allows your Kingdom members to TP between your main Base and your HQ build near spawn.
  • FoxyNoTails Mob Head Add-on, giving more items to be collected in game
  • A PVP arena near spawn that players will be able to have battles/Wars.
  • No PVP ability in the Shopping District, Spawn or the Kingdom HQ build areas.
  • Base destruction will be rectified by myself and imported back to the server from backups

  • We are hopeful with the above changes, that the Shopping District will become more active, as Kingdoms will have easy access to TP from the Kingdom HQ's back to base etc.
