Wiki Reflections: Survival 4

Hello @Dogcraft!

As by now you have likely heard of the upcoming Survival 5 era of the Dogcraft Server and naturally, the demise of Survival 4. At the Wiki we’d love it if you’d help us in remembering and recording the builds, stories, and events of this era of Dogcraft.

To give you a helping hand, creating/editing a wiki article from now until the closure of Survival 4 (whenever it may be) will come with certain perks and count as contributions towards the Reflections event.

By contributing you will receive and also have the chance to win the following items (to be given out on Survival 5):

• :shield: Unique custom shield for any contribution • :telescope:Unique spyglass awarded to the most active editor • :telescope: Unique spyglass awarded to the creator(s) of the best new page • :telescope:Unique spyglass awarded to the editor of the best update to an existing page

• :trophy: Every editor will also receive a wiki user page trophy for editing or winning a category, respectively.

Don’t know where to start? Try our article creation helper: https://dogcraft.net/wiki/Dogcraft_Wiki:Create_an_Article

You’ve worked so hard on your builds and created so many stories since Survival 4 went live! Make sure they are immortalised for everyone to admire for years to come! No build is too big or small to be included :tada:

Any questions - a Wiki Admin will be happy to answer :)

Happy Holidays @Dogcraft!

We're sure you're anxious to hear about our plans for 1.18. So here's some details for you.

For 1.18, we will have to say goodbye to our Sur4 worlds Husky and Beagle. They're filled with many great memories and rich history for all of you wonderful Cyberdogs, so we realize that for many of you this will be upsetting. These feelings are especially amplified considering that the world downloader mod that we usually recommend is sadly not updated to 1.17 and does not seem like it will be for a while. We will look at other options and inform you all when we come to a decision. We're sorry if this is upsetting, but we hope in the new worlds you'll be able to start anew with us and build bigger, better and fill our server with life as you all so amazingly do.

Here's a brief list of what to expect. Please note that anything is subject to change at any time! :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: We will retain the same setup of two worlds, a separate mall and the ability to move between them with your inventories. We haven't settled on names quite yet, but they will still be named after dog breeds! :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: We will be resetting DCD and claimblocks in the new world. (You'll hopefully start with a few claimblocks though) :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: The mall will also be reset. Stay tuned for more info when we have it figured out for you. :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: Some of our rules will be seeing a little tinkering. More information will come as the time grows closer. :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: Creative will most likely remain as it is. If this changes we'll let you know!

For now, we still don't have any ETA's on when this whole process will happen, we don't even have a complete scope of what you should expect. But we HM's and the staff will continue to work tirelessly to ensure it'll be something wonderful for you all. When the time comes we will share more information with you in greater detail as we figure out the path forward, until then I hope you'll have patience with us.

Due to some ”technical” difficulties, we are unsure at this stage whether our fireworks extravaganza will be heard, when it goes off.
YouTube has put a halt on us playing music through discord, for you to listen to whilst watching the show. But… we are working on another avenue.

We are aiming for our first show, at 2pm GMT (midnight AEST). So get your candles and clocks out, and get ready to ring in the new year, at /phome NYE21

Join us in discord chat #livestreaming and enjoy the show. :fireworks:

• Further shows may be announced depending on the success of the first one. Proposed repeat showtimes are: > +2 UTC = 10pm GMT > -7 UTC = 7am GMT

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?! Either way..

The present pile at /phome Xmas2021 is now.. unlocked! :unlock: Come and see if Santa :santa: granted your wish or if someone left you a gift! :gift: :christmas_tree:

Happy @Dogcraft Christmas!!

Yes you hear me correctly. The Seasonal Mallplot at the centre of the mall is now OPEN !!

Come grab a book … and wait to see if you’ve made Santa’s naughty or nice list! Santa's elves will be making their drop off via Dogcraft Prime, at this year’s Christmas event, ready to be opened come December 25th.

Hi again @Dogcraft!

Sorry to ping twice in such a short time but we figured you'd like to know about a new feature in both spawns!

We've devised something special for the advancement hunters out there. Some of you strive to be Cyberdog Masters and catch 'em all. But there's one legendary advancement that always eludes you! The elusive Next Generation advancement!

Getting this advancement won't be a walk in the park though. We want finding this to be hard, thus I, the cruelest hider of things on staff, have hidden 1 command block in each spawn. This block grants you the Next Generation achievement (The dragon egg one)! To clarify, the buttons are within the spawn builds. They are not outside the camp borders, and definitely not in the spawn cities beyond. You should be able to see the camp flagpole from both locations at a render distance of 8 chunks. This also will not be giving you the egg, there will still only be 1 egg in each world!

Can you find the right button? Will you curse my name till the end of time? Only time will tell :smiling_imp: . Good Luck...

Hi @Dogcraft! For those who aren't aware 1.18 dropped finally! This is surely something exciting for many of us!

We Headmods wanted to take a moment to remind you all that for servers there can be many things that need to be ready before we can update ourselves. Most crucially we need to wait for plugin devs to update their plugins and make sure they will be stable. What good is a server if it can't even run right? We ask you all please be patient with us while we make our preparations amidst the holiday season. Unfortunately, we do not have any ETA's on when the server will update, but we'll do our very best to keep you all informed here in the #announcements channel!

Thank you all! :smile: :heart: Server HM's
