    Hi Applecrafters!

    It's (finally) time to announce the winners of the tag map build competition! For those of you who don't know, tag is a minigame on Applecraft that works just like playing tag in real life. The game will be released again shortly for everyone to play.

    We had 25 entries in total to the build competition, so competition was fierce! For this reason I have picked one winner, four runners up, and have also picked a bunch of other maps to be included in the minigame when it is released.

    The winner of the competition is...

    SimpleArchitect has won ARCHITECT RANK and a spawn egg of their choice!

    The runners up are...


    These players have won a spawn egg of their choice!

    In addition, the following players will also have their build included in the tag map minigame! These builds are still excellent, but didn't make the winner's podium.

    Thanks everyone for your submissions - if you have any questions about your build just message me on discord and we can chat! I'm looking forward to seeing all of these builds in the next release of the Tag minigame! :)

    Hi Applecrafters!

    We have released a new 1.13 world! To get to the world, do /worlds from any server on Applecraft and select the RED server. There have been a bunch of questions about the new world so far - I'll answer the FAQ's below.

    What's special about the Red server?
    The RED server runs Minecraft 1.13, which means it has coral, dolphins, turtles, and more! It also has some gameplay differences to Applecraft. Specifically, Keep Inventory is OFF in on the RED server.

    What happened to the Purple server?
    The PURPLE server has been renamed the BLUE server. This is just a personal preference of mine - it doesn't affect gameplay at all.

    When will Blue update to 1.13?
    BLUE will update to 1.13 as soon as it is safe to do so. The BLUE server currently runs 50+ plugins, whereas the RED server only runs ~10 or so. Upgrading the BLUE server is risky, and we could lose some data - this is why we are waiting until it's safe to do so.

    Do my ranks/inventory/homes transfer between worlds?
    Your ranks and /vote count will transfer between the RED and BLUE worlds. Your inventories and homes won't transfer between the two worlds.

    Does chat work between servers?
    At the moment, no. Chat will work between servers when BLUE updates to 1.13.

    Why can't I /vote on the Red server?
    Voting hasn't been configured yet. I am switching to a new vote plugin which will take some time - you will know as soon as it's done, though!

    Do you have any other questions? Post below!

    Hi Applecrafters!
    This post will be updated with news regarding 1.13 so make sure you check it regularly.

    Minecraft 1.13 is out! However, Spigot 1.13 hasn't been released yet.

    We are not able to update the server until Spigot 1.13 has been released. Once it has been released, we will ensure that all plugins work on the new Spigot version before updating our world.

    The PURPLE server will not reset.
    Once we update to Spigot 1.13, we will expand the world border.
    Once 1.13 is out, I will also open a new world so people can explore the new biomes while we wait for PURPLE to update.

    Post any questions/comments below, and keep an eye on this post for updates!

    ~ UPDATE 23/07/2018 ~
    I am testing a bunch of development builds for core plugins (WorldEdit, WorldGuard, etc.) but I am also waiting on some core plugins (EssentialsX-Spawn, CoreProtect) to update before I can finish testing the new server.

    UPDATE: Submit your builds HERE!

    Hi Applecrafters!

    We're hosting a building competition to make new tag maps!
    We'll be selecting a whole bunch of builds from this build competition to add into the game. If you haven't played before tag before on Applecraft, it's a minigame where one team tries to "tag" the other team, while the other team runs away or hides! Click the Minigames warp at spawn to see how it works.

    Competition Ends

    Build Theme
    ANY theme is allowed! Just make sure there are a lot of places to explore and hide.

    Claiming Your Plot

    Click the Tag Build Comp NPC at spawn! Then do /plot auto to claim your plot.

    Multiple tag builds will be selected from the competition. The owners of builds selected to go into the tag minigame will receive a special prize!
    The BEST entries will receive ARCHITECT RANK.
