1. Hey Guest! We just wanted to let you know our new website is http://stonelegion.com and our new YouTube channel is http://youtube.com/stonelegionvideos Godcraft had lasted well over 3 years and became one of top servers in the world. We had decided overtime to start fresh with a new Site & Name but also change our ways. In the past Godcraft cost a small fee to play where Stone Legion is %100 free! So please check out http://stonelegion.com and hope to see you soon!

Notice: StoneLegion.Com The New Name!

    Stone Legion and it's Goals:
    Thanks to me and me alone! Fine! Thanks to Bagline and his cleverness he had suggested IronLegion and found out it was Taken so he suggested StoneLegion and hell I love it. The best part it's a pretty good generic name that does not just fit Godcraft but an all around gaming site.

    One of our goals with this new site is not just be another Minecraft Server. But also be a family or if you will a guild / clan site that we hope to play and run many other games overtime where we all can join in and have a blast.

    Here on Godcraft even though it did not last long we did our recent GuildWars 2 that had like dozen Godcraft members and then back we had Diablo 3 that had like 2 dozen players. Things like that where we had fun and came together to participate in things that everyone enjoyed or a large part the community is something we want to aim at more.

    Special Stone Legion Links:
    Website: http://StoneLegion.com
    Twitter: http://twitter.com/StoneLegion
    Facebook: http://facebook.com/StoneLegion
    Twitch TV: twitch.tv/StoneLegion

    Logo's, Banners, Art:
    Will need some Logo's, Banners, Art etc... Something related to the name it can be Minecraft or a mix! I assume something stone related haha.

    Will need @Amyliz DrunkAss to make people new Forum Sigs for the new name :p

    Stone Legion Forum Sections:
    We need to come up with some ideas and a forum structure for the new forum / site. It will be a couple days maybe even the end of the Month before we open the doors to the site portion. But when we do we like to have forum sections and categories and sub forums etc etc all ready and done.

    So we need Ideas and suggestions and hell even layout of what comes first etc.

    Stone Legion Minecraft Main World Release Date?:
    There is not ETA and with my own personal plans and being near the end of the summer we have decided that it will more then likely be sometime Mid to End of September before we actually go full retarded I mean launch.


    What Kind Minecraft Server?:
    The biggest thing from the majority of the people would like more a casual vanilla Minecraft server with bukkit Plugins and no the main server does not have or require mods to play on it. But the plan I had talked about more in Video Update seems to be something we might Aim more for that way everyone gets some of their ideas put to good use!

    So tlr; Bukkit Minecraft Server with some neat Plugins and more added overtime with a community driven economy and player made world without any creative mode usage.

    This is still highly in major planning and might change a lot but please talk about Server suggestions and ideas in this thread: http://godcraft.com/threads/godcraft-is-now-1000-days-old-i-think-its-time-for-a-change.13720/

    What is Kane doing in July:
    The biggest things happening with me is I will be starting my LP Series for 1.6.2 Modded Minecraft in the next few days: http://cabingamer.com/minecraft-1-6-2/ Around Mid August the Beta 4 of Final Fantasy ARR will be starting. This is a pretty big thing I been waiting for and will be in the Beta 4 / Pre Launch access. There is no Wipe so it's pretty much head start.

    In between all of this and almost every day still I will be puttering around Stone Legion and working on the site / server slowly so you don't have to worry the progress is not stopped and in fact this might be better as I will not burn myself out and will have a more calmer and clear head to work with.

    Did I miss something:
    I'm sure I did so let me know here and we need your help! This is a community effort not 1 mans effort!

    • Suggestions - Anything and everything releated to Stone Legion Forums / Site / Minecraft?
    • Banned / Appeal - I think this is still very very important to keep this public but we need to I think have 2 sub forums instead and make it so that Bans are only posted by mods and now one can reply and appeals are posted by the players and no one but the mods can reply?
      * Banned - Mods list anyone who gets banned and no one can reply only mods can reply and update and or maybe change certain ban statuses.

    You know you killed the index page with just "test" right? And you mixed up the name with "storm" legion a few times. Interestingly, Stormlegion.com goes to rift heh.

    Less sections are better since it wont make the forum look dead! For example [Introductions, Other Games, Forum Games, Books, Music, Movies, & Television] can all be in Off-Topic. Then if after several months Off-Topic seems to have an abundance of "Lets play Asteroids" related threads, you can create a new section for the game Asteroids and move all of the existing threads there to jump-start it. Once people stop playing Asteroids, you close down the section and move all of the threads back into Off-Topic. This type of forum management keeps a small tight-knit forum with purely active forum sections!

    It's fine I don't plan to for a few days at least. I will be slowly working on it while making my new Let's Play for 1.6.2. I wanted to open it up when some the things are installed with our ambitious features we wanted to add to it I rather have it done right and proper before we get a flood of spam :)

    Is it possible to get them without a slogan, a logo and a little less red?
