GemsCraft

Now on Version Alpha 0.2

Download at http://gemscraft.net

Available for Windows/Linux/Mac.

A Classicube Server Software brought to you by Alex Potter (aka apotter96, alexpotter96)

This software was forked from LegendCraft, meaning it is based on LegendCraft, 800Craft, and fCraft. I find the fCraft platform to be the best out of all the server softwares available today, especially with the additions brought to you by 800Craft and LegendCraft. With the fCraft platform, I see endless possibilities, and I plan on making endless possibilities!

My intention is to make the software completely different from previous fCraft forks. With what we have available already through fCraft, plus some really cool stuff, anything can happen.

If you are willing to be an alpha and/or beta tester of GemsCraft, contact me on Facebook at https://facebook.com/apotter96 or by email at [email protected]

The software is now available for download at http://gemscraft.net/ or from http://github.com/apotter96/GemsCraft

Some Features Already Added (Or Changes from the last version of LegendCraft [2.4.0])

  • Redesigned GUI, including a more recognizable GUI (GemsCraft.exe), all GUI's included in one executable, with a launcher

  • Switched from using XML for the Config to using JSON (Old versions of the config found in the directory can be imported and converted to the new format upon server owner's discretion)

  • Commands to edit config in-game (/EditConfig, /ConfigList/, /ConfigValue)

  • Emotes added! To view a list of the keywords for each emote available, visit this page on the website

  • Implemented the MessageType CPE Extension and is configurable from the CPE tab in the Configuration

  • Custom Blocks added, server owners/third parties can create custom blocks and add them to the Custom Blocks folder. File is a .gcblock which is a zip archive that contains 4 files - top texture, bottom, side, and a json text file defining the block. All 4 files must be present. Here is an example of that JSON file: https://pastebin.com/8bbM0a38

  • There is also the ability to design your own Custom Blocks via the Config under the CPE section.

  • Improved the /say command to incorporate the MessageType Extension. Usage: /Say [Announcement/Chat] message

Some Things Planned

  • A Tutorial that shows the user step by step how to set up their server, and different sub-tutorials that will show them different features of the server and how to trouble shoot different issues

  • Remote Control from Android/iOS

  • Much more coming! Keep updated here what I plan to do: https://github.com/apotter96/GemsCraft/blob/master/ToDo.txt

But does it have anything that is actually useful, like support for custom blocks and textures?

Good, it has custom blocks! I'm steadily working through the different CPE features. I just very recently finished up setting up MessageTypes, which I like how I did that and made them configurable. I plan on implementing all the CPE features, because why not? Someone will want to use them someway or another.

Just wanted to note updated some information about GemsCraft including some stuff that have been added and stuff I plan to add.

I'm gonna have to try this out!

Ryecrypter, I'd be excited if you did! I just released Alpha 0.2, if you're still thinking about trying it.
