Survival will be launching this Friday (28.07.17) at 8:00 PM (20:00) CEST
I was forced to delay launch because of some unexpected plans. As for compensation for the delay, everyone who joins server on the launch day will receive one top tier and one mid tier crate keys. On top of that, there's going to be a big launch sale (75%) for everything.

I am planning on launching survival this week. Not sure which day yet since things never go as planned. Some things have been also fixed:
  • Whoever bought pets should now have access to them again in all all servers other than kitpvp
  • HelpOP has been rewritten and is being tested now. This will 100% increase the the respond rate since all of staff will now have access to it. Pictures will be posted once it's implemented.
  • Voting has been reworked from ground up, but then I ran into some issues that made voting unstable or likely to have issues. I am not taking chances so @RedstoneDust will code a custom one which works the way I want it.
Support for 1.7 to 1.12 is planned and will be implemented either before and right after survival's launch. Factions server is next to launch after survival launches.

Off topic, I have had the idea of implementing global crates on hub which would allow users to win ranks, tags, pets, trails and cowcoins.

This thread is going to be dedicated for upcoming factions updates and suggestions. Please also vote for TNT or no TNT for upcoming update. Survival will be coming out before factions.

Next big update is going to be focused on nostalgia and the old cowcraft. Meaning, factions server with that old awful wool spawn in a cave. For many past updates of factions I been trying to do something new and better, but this time focus is going to be on the old factions with few additions such as koth. However, tnt is going to be enabled since I can't see factions being successful without tnt.

The point of this thread is to get suggestions for what makes a server nostalgic and what you would like to see. Suggestions are not limited to factions server, I just took that as a example since it the oldest server.

We have now moved to a new host, we took down servers without any notice because of the limited time we had left on old host. I am sorry for the downtime this has caused.

Every server on CowCraft should now accept all clients from 1.6 to 1.11. Be aware that there could be some issues or even crashes when using 1.6 and 1.7 clients. In theory all clients from 1.4 and up should be accepted, but I have only tested 1.6 and up personally.

Creaitve, towny and skyblock are currently running on 1.11. While factions and kitpvp are running on 1.8, we're going to keep all of pvp based servers on 1.8 while the rest will be constantly updated to the latest minecraft version.

The next step will be cleaning up files of each server which will result in updating and fixing servers a lot faster in future. After that's done, survival server will launch once again. Factions and towny will reset, towny will be pretty much the same other than new world. As for factions, we will be going more into factions vanilla direction. Meaning there will be no features such as custom enchants.

More info about survival launch and resets will be posted as I get closer to them.

Hi, I am back. As many have noticed, I kinda quit minecraft because I got tired of it and because of school. However, I did miss the people yelling at me and being upset about factions.

Currently I am working on redoing whole cowcraft and the way servers work / are setup. It may not be visually impressing as you may not even notice the massive changes, but it will definitely make my life a lot easier managing servers. It should also make servers a lot more stable.

The current plan is to add support for client versions all the way from 1.7 to 1.11.2. Most of the servers are going to stay at 1.8 but creative may be updated to higher version. Pvp based servers are going to stay at 1.8 with support of 1.7 clients.

The other part of the plan is to actually fix broken servers. All of this is already in progress!!! Also minez aka cowz is coming back with the old old map!! The towny and factions servers are planned to reset. As for factions, we won't be doing any more "fancy" stuff....

Sorry for taking this long to post this thread, there will most likely be more polls in future depending on the suggestions this thread receives. Here is the first poll:

Feel free to suggest and discuss anything for the new factions reset.

We're currently working on setting up google forms polls to give community full power of deciding what kind of factions we should have. We will be resetting factions once we get enough poll results, the google form for next factions reset should be finished next week.

We will be changing kits and trying to make factions more balanced. You will be able to vote for what type of factions you want as soon as poll goes live.

Meanwhile, I will be launching survival server pretty soon as it's been down for a long time now. It's not nearly as complex as factions so it shouldn't take long before it goes live. We will be also resetting Towny and trying to make it more balanced. There are no set dates, but I will try to post updates more often.

HungerGames are in need of major fixes too. We will be redoing whole server, adding more features and maps. Our current goal is to update and fix all of the broken servers.

Thank you for your patience.
