    Hi Applecrafters!

    I'm sure many of you have noticed the warp to Haven at spawn. Haven was a town that we created to test a new town plugin I made. The plugin lets a town owner register plots, clear plots, and check when a plot was last used. Best of all, it can provide a list of free plots for newbies to join!

    We're opening up the floor to applications for our next Capital. A Capital is a large town where all players are welcome to join and build. There are many reasons why you might want to be the mayor of a Capital, including:

    A special warp at spawn
    1,000,000 claim blocks (to claim the town)
    Shop plots inside the town

    You can nominate existing towns to become a Capital. However, be advised that in order to be a Capital, each plot must be a subdivision of one parent plot. That means you may need to reclaim your town!

    However, you don't need to have an existing town to become a Capital! All you need to do is fill out the application below. I'll be reading over the applications in the next week to select the next Capital.
    Mayors: [Please provide the name of at least THREE town mayors]
    Existing Town: [Yes/No]
    Town Name: [e.g. Haven]
    Town Theme: [e.g. Savannah]
    Town Ideas: [e.g. Custom shop district, themed zones...]

    Hi Applecrafters...
    It's time to announce the winner of the spawn build competition! There were so many amazing builds, everyone worked really hard on putting them together and it was definitely a difficult decision. I've made a video showcasing some of the top builds - check it out below!

    The winner is...

    (click here to see a video of the build!)

    It came down to personal preference and what I think will work best on the server, so please don't get too hurt if you weren't chosen this round. The spawn will be edited slightly in the coming days, but hopefully it will be in for the weekend. If you have any questions about the judging process or want feedback on your plot please message me on Discord and I'll get back to you. :)

    For anyone who still wants another shot at building, we'll be hosting another build competition soon where we'll be choosing five or six winners! That means that more people can have their work showcased on the server.

    Hi Applecrafters,

    I have some pretty exciting news to announce: it's Applecraft's FIRST EVER store sale! Until Sunday the 2nd of July you can get 20% off the entire store; ranks, spawners, sethomes, everything!

    I've also received a few messages from donors regarding the reset poll we had the other day. I'd like to put everyone's mind at rest and announce (officially) that Applecraft will never reset*. All the items you donate for are permanent and will never be removed. It was made clear on the forums that the majority of people were against a reset, so I promise never to reset the server now or in the future.

    Feel free to post any questions you have about the server sale, otherwise, enjoy!

    * Barring some bizarre disaster like our server host exploding.
