Livecraft – Online Since 2011!
Livecraft is a survival, free build, and creative server which has been online since mid-2011. We went live when Minecraft 1.7.2 Beta had been released, and we had a very small user base. Since then, we have graduated to a dedicated server with a very active and kind community. Livecraft isn’t just about building, it’s about socializing. On Livecraft, you will find that it is truly about building with others and sharing experiences with many players. Many develop friendships, while some choose to stick with building. It’s your experience, make it what you want.
Livecraft is proud to feature a suite of plugins to secure the builds and items that players have. We use Deadbolt, NoCheat, Prism, MCBans, WorldGuard, and VanishNoPacket to make sure our players are safe, whether or not they know it. All griefing is rolled back as soon as it discovered and players who grief will be banned. Our staff are active and we make sure to only select the most fitting staff for managing the server. Never again get banned for no reason!
Additionally, Livecraft is proudly home hosted. All of this is ran at home, no hosting service is used at all. This ensures that if the server encounters any problems, it can be fixed as soon as possible by the maintainer of the server’s hardware. This person is known in-game as alfonsjon, but you can call him Jon. If you ever have problems with the server, you are free to email him at alfo...@gmail.com. Do note, however, that this email is meant for helping with problems, not socializing.
Overall, Livecraft should be the most premium and entertaining Minecraft multiplayer experience you can find. Your builds are secure, you are treated fairly as a member, and server problems can be taken care of nearly instantly.
We look forward to seeing you on Livecraft!

Veterans earn this rank for playing on Livecraft regularly over a year and being a dedicated player. Donator is a rank which is acquired when one donates to the server.

Policy Revision #1
- Livecraft’s staff will vote on applications. Applications are either voted to be approved or denied based on the criteria listed above.
- To successfully obtain a rank, one must fill out a post on the Pending Application forum using the formatting provided in the example post (see the forum).
- Votes from Moderators are considered opinions, and are taken into consideration before finalizing decisions. Votes from Administrators count for half of a vote each. The owners’ votes count for one, each.
- Before a decision can be made, an owner must have already voted, and the vote count must be a majority (i.e. 2/3 votes for approval).
We, the owners of Livecraft (Co-Owner and up), have the final say in any and all rank related issues.
