Project Professor

MoonCrisp Jnr. ProfessDeath EaterSlytherin posted Nov 26, 18

In preparation for the re-opening of PotterCraft, we're organising an open call for professors. We would like to take the chance to expand our staff team as well as the builds on our server during the last few months of the maintenance. To do this, we want to remove all entry requirements for the professor role.

The Professor Project plans to give everyone a chance to become a professor, even if you're only a first year. To make sure that everyone gets a fair chance, the application process will be simple. All you need to do is to drop a message to me over discord and I will ask you to provide answers for a few questions (e.g. why you want to be a professor, your experience on the server and your suitability for the role). Though, not everyone who applies will be given the chance to move onto the next step. Given that people are interested, professor workshops will be held on the discord to prepare the newest recruits for the re-opening of the server.

Thank you - MoonCrisp.

Building Updates 13/5/18

landenlan100 Head Builder posted May 14, 18

Hello fellow players!

I am looking to add a few additional builders to our build team. We have several tasks going on at this time which requires a few builders to attend to.

If you are mature, 13 or older, extremely detailed in all of your builds, please apply for Builder through the Apply tab at the top of the page.

We do check to authenticate your screenshots provided with the application. If they are stolen or from a map you downloaded and the work isn't your own, the application will be rejected. If accepted, you will be required to complete a Harry Potter related trial build to see your skills in live time.

Thank you for your time and good luck on your application!

New Mail Plugin!

Curtis73 OwnerSlytherin posted Mar 24, 18

Hey all,

As you may or may not be aware, I've been spending most of my time over the last month or so developing a new Mail plugin - the second of many custom plugins that we hope to release. The current mail plugin we use is public, buggy, complicated and designed for MC 1.10. This new plugin has been created with simplicity in mind - there are no commands (yet) and everything is done through a GUI.

First of all, you will need to find a Mailbox. They can be found in the following locations:

  • Entrance Hall in Hogwarts
  • By the wall in Diagon Alley
  • In the Owlery
  • By Gringotts
  • In every common room

If there's somewhere you think should have a mailbox and doesn't - let us know in the server-suggestions channel on our Discord! We will be conducting a review in one week.

Mailboxes will look something like this:

Please note that the model is not final and is going to be changed.

and to open the GUI, you must right click it. Once you have clicked the mailbox, the following menu (should) pop up!:

There are three different buttons in the GUI, one is for reading, one is for sending and another is for exiting the GUI. You can see what's what by hoving over each item in-game or by looking at the above annotations.
The Read Mail GUI, when clicked, looks something like this:

There's room for 18 different letters before you can't receive any more, and you will see all of your mail in chronological order from left to right. Whenever mail is sent, the existing lore is cleared (grades etc.) and the exact timestamp and who it's sent to gets added to the lore. You will receive a notification if your mailbox is full.

If you click on Send Mail, the GUI will close and you will be asked who you would like to send to in Chat. Type their name in (not case-sensitive), and if they have joined before then the following Send GUI should open:

You place the book you want to send in the gap above the Send Mail button, and then click the book below it to send. For now, you can only send one at a time - though with this in mind, the GUI remains open every time you click Send Mail, just in case you happen to want to send multiple books. If it's successful, you should receive a message in chat saying that it's been sent.

For now, that's all the plugin has to offer - a substantial improvement over the previous plugin. If you have any ideas/problems/queries, you can head down to our Discord and let them be known! We have lots planned for this plugin, and the following roadmap should outline the basic ideas.

Roadmap:

  • Let players send items/attach them to their mail.
  • Perhaps let players purchase mailboxes for use in the PvP world.
  • Add in a time delay between the mail being sent and the mail arriving in the other player's mailbox - owl's don't travel instantly, do they?
  • Mass-Send feature.
  • Create a Tutorial Video for our YouTube channel that basically describes everything above

That's all for now, we hope you enjoy using this new feature.

Thanks for playing!

Chat Update!

Curtis73 OwnerSlytherin posted Mar 12, 18

Hey all,

I've got (another) chat update for you!
This update focuses on bringing more functionality to the chat rather than improving existing features, like the last update.

Major Updates:

  • Replaced the previous spam filter (Message sent -> Wait 2 seconds -> Message sent) with a much more adaptive system - instead of directly limiting the ability to send messages, it now follows a threshold - you can only send 8 messages every 10 seconds - after that ten seconds is up, it will be reset. Of course, we will be monitoring this for its effectiveness and it may change - to stay updated, you can join our Discord HERE.

  • Direct Conversation mode - You can lock yourself in conversation with other users by writing out @{username} in chat. What happens next should look something like this:

    You'll enter a private message with the player and anything you type will be PM'd to the player instead of being sent to whatever channel you're in. To stop, simply type in 'exit'.

  • Added a /me command to aid roleplaying. It will be in the following format and should look something like this:

Minor Updates:

  • When speaking in the server-chat channel in Discord, vulgar language and caps will be blocked.
  • Grammar filter will now lowercase the second letter in a sentence if you made it capital by accident. HEllo --> Hello
  • Improved Warn & Channel join/leave messages:

Of course, no update comes without bugs - so if you find any, please report them in our Discord so I can pass them on. You can join it by clicking the link earlier on in this post, the widget to the left side of this website or by typing /Discord in-game.

Thanks for playing!

Hey all,

We'd like to thank you all for the recent influx of applications for the Inquisitorial Squad, however, due to many of them being accepted, we have taken the decision to close the applications for the time being. It will be announced on this page when they have opened again.

Thanks for playing!
