PrisonCraft News

    I started PrisonCraft back in January 2013 as a way for me to make a Server that had what lacked from what I had always wanted from other Servers. We started out as a 30 Slot cracked server and within the first month PrisonCraft had a whole 7 players on, that was back in the time of handmade cells, a free website and just myself as the only Staff Member. I would spend countless hours playing with the original prisoners, building prisons and just doing what I could to make this as much of an enjoyable experience for my players. As time went on PrisonCraft had begun to gain a larger and larger player base of about 18 people, and this was when I was still running the server out of my HP Pavilion Dv7 Laptop 24/7 , until I finally got my first donation from ZachA29, we has the first Delta-Guard ever! But that wouldn’t be enough to keep the server running and with the lag being so intense once that 20 player cap was reached, I decided that it was time to risk all the Donations and get a shared Minecraft host. This would be the first time I switched hosts. The server I got was only 2GB but for the time it would have to last. People noticed the improvements and from there I could focus on other ideas that would make the server what it was. Eventually as the player base grew to about ~25 players, cells would become a huge problem. It always seemed that there wasn’t enough cells for everyone. And that was when I decided that we would need something faster, bigger and large scale. That’s when the /Warp Cells today came from, and since it’s conception there was still a massive rush to get cells, people would wait hours and crowd around an expiring cell just to get a chance, even though there were a total of nearly 200 cells in that area. Moving on, in the coming months /warp shops was erected as well as new Guard warps such as Delta-Guard and Officer. Many of you may remember South_Side, we was an active Co-Warden for about 4 months, but he got tired of Minecraft and decided to leave. I was then left with Dope_Skittlez and PredictableMC. Now I know what you’re thinking, "Eww Predictable”, but at first he was pretty cool but I think the power got to his head and he began to stop following the rules, ECT. Around December of 2013 was our most successful/productive month of all time. We had reached our Peak of just over 70 players on at once! Times were good, but with the oncoming updates Mojang would start making being a cracked player harder and harder. We were losing players until we averaged 30-45 players a day. The forums had come up with the idea of making or adding games to the server. This is where Prison Shankers would come from. But that idea didn’t last too long unfortunately. By this time PrisonCraft had gained enough donations for an upgrade, we went from 4 GB on Laptop, to 2GB Shared, 4 GB Shared and before switching to dedicated a whole 8GB + SSD setup. But people grew unhappy with what was happening with the server, Staff, stuff to do, ECT. I began work on ObsidianPvP in February 2014, in the hopes of bringing some life back into the community. But unfortunately the players were just not coming back. Within 4 months we had gone from 35-40 players to a mere 5-10 players. And to where the server is now 0-2 players. As a final attempt to bring the server back to life, I bid nearly $2,000 on server advertising but was shut out by other servers offering $4,000 - $10,000. That was it. PrisonCraft had had its last breath. We had a great run, from the 10 of thousands of individuals who had joined the server (78,932 to be exact) I had been able to make a few friends along the way, such people as Dope_Skittlez, SpartonxLaser, MostEpicKid, AwesomeChicken47, Chickeninacloset, IanMcBride and PredictableMC. But those weren’t even some of the most dedicated players we have had. Our most dedicated player was CreepyFriend15 with over 1,500 hours alone spent playing on the server, and though I had never had the chance to personally meet her (:P), I wish I would have. We’ve had our up’s and our downs. But like many great servers before PrisonCraft, it would have to come to an end. The 1 and ½ years had been a great experience, I only wish that it could have lasted longer. And who knows maybe in the future PrisonCraft + ObsidianPvP could be brought back. But for now it’s time to shut them down. It was a great time from all the late nights playing, talking on TS, messing about, building and just having the privilege of become such a big community for a time. It brings a tear to my eye’s just thinking about the time we’ve had to together, but it’s time to go down. Good Bye 

 The server will remain open until October 5th.
