Opening Day is finally upon us! After tireless work by Chuck, myself, builders, and testers, we are pleased to announce that the Halocustoms Minecraft server is now public!
Server Address: mc.halocustoms.com:25635
For new users, you will first appear in Spawn City, a lowly grunt without a nugget to your name. If you are a regular Halocustoms member, you can find a moderator and be promoted immediately to marine rank, allowing you to leave spawn and start building and crafting as you might expect. Grunts can't build, break objects, or enter the wilds, so this is an important step. In the city there is information about the rules and permissions of the world(s), apartments you can obtain, and much, much more. You definitely want to spend some time there before heading out into the world.
Once you are ready to get to digging/building/frolicking, you can head out into Build World, the main world of the server, to do so. Build World is set to easy difficulty and has certain protections, such as no PvP. Anti-griefing policies will be strictly held in Build World, so don't go messing with anyone else's stuff. If you are looking for a challenge, or to be more nefarious, you can head into The Wilds from Spawn City. Here, PvP and griefing are enabled and allowed, though killing someone of marine rank will mark you as a Heretic, and it is never wise to trust a Heretic! (Note: Killing a Heretic is fair game, and will not make you a Heretic.)
As time passes we will likely hold events, give out prizes, and generally strive to promote creativity, fun, and interaction between members. There may still be a few bugs here or there to work out, but we've squashed the major ones and feel it's time to bring everyone in! We hope to see you online soon, feel free to post any questions here or to ask us on the server itself!
