Welcome to SafeCraft.

EllisWin AdminOwner posted Feb 1, 15  -  News

SafeCraft is a 'White listed' Minecraft server that is designed to be a safe place for children and the families & friends of children that have autistic conditions, to play Minecraft on line.


If you are a child or a family member, or friend of a child with an autistic condition, and you have the PC/Mac version of Minecraft you can apply to be added the server whitelist and granted access to the Minecraft Server.
 
SafeCraft was created by myself Ellis Deacon (in game name EllisWin) & my wife Michelle Deacon (in game name ShellyWin) after we took part in an autism awareness anti-bullying campaign, and decided that we wanted to do more as a family, so we started SafeCraft, SafeCraft is the first UK based Minecraft server, with owners that are trained in Safeguarding Children & Adults. The server and website have been specifically designed to be a place where children with autistic conditions can play safely, together with their friends & families without being judged, bullied or mistreated in any way.
 
We also invite applications from parents of any child, no matter what their ability, who would like a safe place for their children to play Minecraft online.
 
Some SafeCraft features include:
  • Sophisticated chat filtering software to keep in game chat friendly and supportive.
  • Survival worlds with no PVP and inventory protection.
  • Anti griefing software to protect your builds.
  • Website simple support ticket system for all players to access and ask for help.
  • Mini-games that add enhanced game play to Minecraft.
  • No pay to play, all items within the server shop can be bought with 'Points' which can be earned in game.
  • Friendly, supportive & helpful Admin/Moderation staff.
  • Safeguarding Children & Adults trained Owners & Staff
For more information please read our FAQ and Parent Information pages, we look forward to meeting you all on the server.

As all of you are no doubt aware we have been working away at some behind the scenes updates and upgrades and the big part of the infastructure elements of SafeCraft are now in place and running smoothly.

All of you who have visited the server in the past week or so will of noticed that the chat system has changed ever so slightly, the truth is the chat has changed massively, we now have a chat system that is extreamly versatile and configurable, but equally remains as well moderated and filtered as before.

The chat system in place now allows us to create more channels for players to use, players can choose to listen to what ever channel they have permission for, and stop listening to channels they dont want to hear,  which will be good for players who dont want to listen to all the chat, and instead only want to listen to chat localised to a particular world or server.

Our first new channel that players can use is the RPG channel, this is the channel to be used if players are playing on the RPG creative plot world, and will permit those who want to play role play games to do so without thier storylines spamming global chat and possibly confusing other players as to what is going on, In the past I would often join the server to hear shouts for help as imaginary foes do battle with the hero's in role play games, and found my self rushing off to help somone, only to find it was just a game, this will now be a thing of the past.

Another very exciting function of chat is the "party" function, this will allow players to create thier own party in chat, and they can then invite players to join the chat party and conversation will be private to that party.

Players that host chat parties will be responsible for running the chat group, and who can and cant join in the party, however, we do want to remind all players that all chat, including party chat is logged and monitored, and all chat & server rules apply when using chat party, be clear that even though this is a chat party, all chat is still logged and monitored, and can be recalled if occasion to do so is needed.

/tell [player] [message]

  • aliases: none

The next new feature you will notice when joining the server now is that you get given a compass on joining the server, this is not a normal compass but instead is a Navigation Tool, if you right click the compass when your holding it, a new inventory menu will open with a selection of different icons/blocks in the inventory, these are actually links to various other parts of the server, if you hover your mouse pointer over these icons a short description of each item will appear giving you details as to where you will be taken  or what action will be taken if you click on the item.

The vast majority of the items in these menu's will take you to other parts of the server, but some can be used to toggle your chat between channels, and as time goes on we will add other functionality to the menu's that will help you all to navigate and activate various commands with a simple click.

We introduced this feature as we felt that some players had difficulty issuing commands, or finding their way around portals, we have removed the ability for players to access the /server command, so now players can either use the portals or the new menu navigation system.

We have also finished the updating of all the server software and have successfully migrated all player data and accounts over to the new software, and all seems to be going well so far, we have had some fantastic support from the author of some of the software we use, Adam, and to him we are truely greatful, thank you Adam.

The next phase of our update will be the updating of our mini games, and the main server lobby/hub, as we have said/hinted there has been and still is lots of work going on in the background, and were ready to start telling you all a little more of what we have planned.

The Lobby

We are in the final stages of launching our brand new SafeCraft Lobby, with a destinct spring/summer feeling to it, this will be a much more scenic lobby, with all the relevant features a lobby should have, including details of the server staff, champions and supporters, server donator/supporters will have thier own hall of fame so to speak, somewhere where we can publicly thank players that kindly donate to the running of the server.

The lobby will also include a new PVP arena and some more parkour, and other areas that players can have some fun in whilst travelling around the server, but in essence this is what it is meant to be, and that is a hub or arrival area, but what it wont have is portals to all the different minigames, instead you will have a new menu item to take you to the new Mini-Games lobby!, yep a whole new lobby for the Mini Games, which ShelleyWin, ZappedByTheSky and I have been busy building.

Here you will be able to access our brand new Paintball plugin and arenas, with a host of all new paintball weapons for you all to enjoy and a host of fantastic new arenas, additionally we will be introducing a new paintball based game of Capture the Flag, yep all the fun of a fast paced paintball game with the added element of Capture the Flag, I cant wait for you to see some of the arenas we have ready for you, arenas from epic sized arenas to intense small arenas floating high above the ground, were sure you will love them.

You will still be able to access BlockHunt & Survival games, and we will introduce some new minigames at a later date, including some parkour arenas, and an update to Survival Games which will include much more functionality to the game, and again some new arenas for you all to enjoy, this will be a big update so it will require us to temporarily take down Survival Games, but this wont be happening until we are happy that the other minigames are up and running properly.

We are hoping to be fully updated ready for the summer school holidays here in the UK, so that you can all enjoy your time on SafeCraft over the summer break.

Once again we would like to thank all our players for being very patient with us whilst we get all these things up and running, we know it has been a difficult time for some of you, but we are determined to bring you the very best Minecraft experience we can afford to provide you, and your continued support and understanding is always appreciated.

I have been asked about the arena building competition, and if it will be staying or not, and the anser is yes it will be staying, but it will be done in a more organised and official way, and players will have longer to build arenas, either individually or collectively in build teams, we will also be looking at a proper summer competition for individuals to enter with proper prizes, but again this will depend on what we as a family can afford to put up, if however there are any parents that would be interested in supporting us with the donation of a prize for a competition we would love to hear from you (contact us via website mail/messge) maybe we could all work together to come up with something for the children.

So for now everyone, we hope you are finding the new chat and navigation systems helpful, and as always if you have any problems with either of them, then please contact us with a support ticket.

Ellis & Michelle

As you know we have been working on lots of projects behind the scenes, and before these can all be put in to place we need to update some of the software that manages many aspects of the server for us.

For us to do this we will need to put the servers in to a maintenace mode for 1 day, this day has been set for Tuesday the 5th of May, we hope to have things up and running smoothly by Wednesday morning.

We hope you all understand that these things have to happen sometimes and this is the only way we can do these sort of tasks, to make sure it works smoothly and goes as quick as we can manage to do it all.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to the server on Wednesday morning.

Ellis & Michelle

We would like to ask all our players that have not yet added their Minecraft Character to their account to do so, adding your character is quick and easy, and allows you to access the in game and website SafeCraft shops, and the absolute best thing about adding your character is that we give you 1000 Points for doing so, that's right 1000 points to spend in game or on the website server store, here you can buy all sorts of in game items, some exclusive to the shop, and of course your own pets that you can name, ride or wear as hats!

You too can own your own pet Ender Dragon and fly around the survival worlds atop of your flying dragon, or have that ever so cute black and white kitten following you around as your pet, these are all available in the website/server game store for you to enjoy.

Adding your character also puts a 3D image of your player on any of your forum posts, and updates your player avatar to reflect your own unique skin.

So don't know how to do this? not a problem, the really nice people at enjin have already though of that, and TheTux2 has made a very nice video to watch that explains it all, combine this with some simple written instructions, and you will be up and running in no time.

So go ahead, watch the video, read the instructions, and get on with adding your character and those 1000 points will drop into your account as soon as your done.

How to add your Minecraft character to your profile

  • Sign into SafeCraft, and go to your user Profile Page
  • Select the Characters Icon on the left hand side of your profile.
  • Click Add Character on the top right.
  • Select Minecraft PC from the drop down menu
  • Open you generic Minecraft client/programme.
  • Go to multiplayer
  • Direct connect to the server address mclogin.enjin.com
  • When you join you will be given your own unique player code, make a note of this code.
  • Return to your profile page and submit the code into the input field and then tick add character to SafeCraft character list
  • Click on Save Character button & your done.

We would like to see all players add their characters, it is part of our signup process, and helps us keep SafeCraft safe, as we can confirm who is who, as players can have different enjin user names compared to their minecraft user name.

Thanks for keeping SafeCraft safe, and as always we look forward to seeing you all on the server.

    

We are really pleased to inform you that we have at last got hold a copy of the pets plugin that is compatible with Minecraft 1.8.3, including 3 new cool pets.

Up for grabs as pets now are Endermites, Rabbits and the super cool and rare Guardians, they are all now live in the server store, so go check them out.
