Our third survival world, Nova 3, served us beautifully for a stunning two and a half years, but the time has come to move on. We're incredibly thrilled to introduce a brand new world, Nova 4, alongside Minecraft 1.10!
The creation of Nova 4 as well as all new creative worlds has been a long time in the making, spearheaded primarily by littlegreendanny. With the help of over 20 members of staff who worked in secret for 6 weeks we managed to launch our most beautiful Nova yet. We're ecstatic for you to see and explore this exciting new world for a long time to come.
We've added new things and changed the way some things work, so be sure to check out our guides on building, taxes, markets, and OnTime. Additionaly, if you're feeling nostalgic you can access old world downloads here.
We hope you enjoyed our April Fools' Day fun! "Queercraft" is here to stay! ;)
Although “queer” is a relatively well-reclaimed umbrella term for the LGBTQ, to some people, it remains controversial. After weeks of deliberation to find a name that would communicate “LGBTQ-friendly” in a universally positive and affirming light, we came up with the perfect new name: Pridecraft!
But then, who would have thought, it was already taken!
This left us no choice but to go with our back-up plan, RainBeauCraft ™. We have since reasoned, that we really do like this alternative. Rainbows are an eternally cheery LGBTQ symbol. The RainBeau spelling additionally serves to honor our founder Beaupedia. (And “Rainbow Craft” was already taken too.)
Over the next few weeks, you may find traces of our former name scattered throughout the community, as they are gradually replaced. This gradual process will allow us to work at a leisurely pace, and allow you, our members, a chance to adjust to this much needed change.
