Our Limitless Sky

Hello everyone! We are happy to announce the revival of our beloved Craftyn community with a new twist! Though continuing the traditional Towny set up, we are shaping the server to include exciting features, contests, aesthetics, and monthly events with prizes absolutely worth your while. Ranging from new ways to earn exclusive items to a rotating event schedule- we are excited to show what we have in store for you all.

Transparency & Community

But that’s not the only thing included in our twist! Craftyn Retro is going to be redefining what it means to be a community by encouraging transparency and interaction across the server. Our vision is to create a bridge between players and the staff team by a variety of methods, including but not limited to:

  • Publicizing staff processes
  • Emphasizing the community’s opinions in server decisions
  • Monthly player/staff recognition through nominations (With awards!)

Our server will be focused on establishing openness, trust, and safety among all players. Craftyn Retro is here for you, and we will absolutely ensure a positive environment to play within. Because at the end of the day, there is always a human being behind the screen and anything could be going on in their life. We want our community to know we care, and that we are here for every player no matter what life throws at you. Building a wholesome server can only be done with your help, so be sure to lend a hand by engaging positively in our community!

A New Look

We asked you guys what makes Craftyn, well… Craftyn. In which a few of you notably replied ‘fish bowl’ in reference to our glass dome spawns. We are almost sad to say that our new spawn will no longer be a fish bowl. I know, I know. But no worries, the new and improved spawn is a reflection of our commitment to openness by creating a zero-building look. That’s right, there’s not a single door at spawn! We want to invite you in, and this is just one of the ways we’ll show you our newfound transparency. Craftyn is excited to be back!

The Beginning of Our Community

As Craftyn Retro begins, there’s a few important changes that’s designed to make your game play enjoyable and effective. Please note the following:

How to Make Income

  • Voting
  • Bank Interest

One of the biggest conundrums that we faced while working on bringing the server up was how players will obtain income on the server. After looking back in Craftyn’s history, we determined that voting was, and continues to be, a good way to go. It enables a daily income for players, while simultaneously providing effective marketing for the server/community.

But there is more to the story. While voting will be the primary means of income, we are also bringing back the bank with compound interest.

How will the bank and interest work? During the first 30 days (Until April 15, 2019), the bank will have a higher interest rate than usual- more than double. After the first 30 days, it will drop back down. Here’s how it will work:

  • First 30 days:
    • 5% interest, if you are online when it calculates
    • 3% interest, if you are offline when it calculates
  • On April 15, 2019 (And thereafter):
    • 2% interest, if you are online when it calculates
    • 0.5% interest, if you are offline when it calculates

Why are we doing this method? Because we don’t want the server to set prices for in game items, thus leaving the community to figure out the economy! Players will start off with 200 mirs (Our in game currency) upon joining the server.
