    Hey everyone!
    Spigot has released a 1.12 pre-release version, so that means we can try out the new Minecraft 1.12! We have set up a new server called Microcraft which is now going to be permanent. There are a number of differences between Applecraft and Microcraft, which are:

    100% vanilla
    Parrots, recipe books, coloured beds and terracotta

    No /sethomes (use a bed!)
    No commands
    No player shops

    Griefing and raiding are permitted
    40,000 x 40,000 world border radius

    If you like vanilla Minecraft with absolutely no game-breaking features, come try out Microcraft!

    The next Applecraft UHC will take place on SUNDAY 8am Pacific Time (which is 3pm GMT, 1am AEST). If this time works well for everyone we will use it for all/most future UHC tournaments! :)

    For those of you who haven't played a UHC before the rules are as follows:

    1. No natural health regeneration (only regenerate through Golden Apples or potions)

    2. World border will start at 1000 x1000 blocks and will contract to 100 x 100 over 1.5 hours.

    3. PVP will be disabled for the first 20 minutes of the match.

    The winner of the UHC tournament will win the title UHC CHAMPION which will last until the next UHC tournament is won.

    This next UHC will be a free for all meaning that there will be no "staff team" or teaming at all.

    Hopefully you can make it! :)
