Today fluboss, myself, and a few other volunteers tested a reverse timelapse of one of Winterfell's towers to test out some ideas for a full-scale video.
Most of you know what a timelapse is, but what is a reverse timelapse?
Basically, we are filmed slowly destroying a build, top to bottom, and then the footage is reversed and sped up to make it look like its being built from nothing!
As server builds nowadays take a long time to complete, they aren't really feasible as timelapses, but with the magic of a reverse timelapse we can simulate what that might look like. The first build we want to do a reverse timelapse for is Winterfell.
The time we are provisionally planning to do this is 9pm GMT (5pm EST), Saturday, September 19th.
The filming will be coordinated using discord, by myself and fluboss, so please only join if you can access discord. You won't need to speak but you will need to hear me and...
Ultimate Chat - lets us have separate chat channels including 'Global', the default one. There's also a Local channel that only broadcasts chat to within 30 block radius. Join other channels by typing /ch global or /ch local. See all available with /ch list. There's also a channel for staff. Other channels will be added based on builder requests and feedback.

Hey folks, its finally that time - we are initiating the upgrade from 1.11 version of Minecraft to 1.12 this Wednesday around 6pm CST. Expect downtime to last at least 2 hours, possible more or less.
With the upgrade, you will notice a few changes:
We've installed a new plugin called called Ultimate Chat - lets us have separate chat channels including 'Global', the default one. Theres also a local channel that only broadcasts chat to within 30 block radius.
Magibridge is a new plugin that connects the Global channel to a text channel called 'server-chat' in our Discord. It's a two way chat and serves as a replacement for the old IRC chat.
A new feature unique to WesterosCraft - personal horses! Just type /wchorse to summon your own personal horse. You can also type /wchorse <type> <color> to specialize the look of the horse you summon. The horse is deleted when you sign off so no need to worry about spamming them and causing server lag.
Our new Wiki and Progress pages are now fully updated. You can reach these very easily thanks to the new "Resources" menu on the above navigation bar. Check out the post on the List of Available Projects Thread for more details.

We're now accepting submissions of any type for the Summer 2020 issue of the Rookery!
These could include:
Community spotlights (for community members who have made a positive impact on the community)
Real world inspiration
World-building guides (e.g, how jewelry was made in the 1400s)
Game of Thrones/ASOIAF/server-related jokes
Free-form writing (long or short-form articles about anything related to the server)
Shaders, renders, fan art, etc.!
The goal is to release the new issue by the end of June, so try to get your submissions in as soon as possible! If you have an idea but think it might take a bit of time for you to finish it, just let me know and I'll leave a space for it!
As you may have noticed, this week we launched a new look at www.westeroscraft.com. The old website was full of dead links, outdated information, bugs on mobile and various browsers and it was overall just very difficult for new users to find what the server is, what we do, and how to explore. The new website was designed and programmed from the ground up to make that experience way more streamlined and effective, and not to brag on myself or anything, but I think I did a pretty good job
One of the main features is the new Wiki - the number one source of all the information about our project. Instead of having different things spread across Google Sheets, Wikia and the forums, the end goal is to compile all those things on the Wiki. If you are interested in being a Wiki Maintainer, please contact me.
If you notice any bugs on the website, or have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to...
