Welcome to the first blog post under the brand new Ownership. In case you're not in Discord, my name is JMCW, and I am one of the new Craftadia owners. I've enjoyed meeting you all the last couple of weeks, so I'm excited to finally launch some of our own content.
As this is our first update, content will be pushed out in ~12 hour intervals. You can expect the spawn revamp, summer crate, and sea shell event to be out first.
NOTE: Any remaining content will be published as soon as possible.
Information about the new owners can be found in our Discord. I can't thank you all enough for being so supportive during this process, it has made the transition much easier. We intend on making Craftadia the #1 Survival experience on Minecraft.
1.20 World Update 🌎
We have updated all worlds to 1.20. This means the following:
- You can only obtain the new 1.20 features in the Resource World.
- You can now obtain 1.20 items and bring them back to your color world.
- Colored worlds have been pre-generated, so you cannot explore new areas.
Summer Castle 🏰
Arches did an amazing job revamping the spawn with a summer theme!
Explore the updated island with a new campfire, crate room, shop area, and much more. Greg definitely did not force me to have the campfire added, as Greg would never do such a thing.
- The Beach Ball event will begin soon, stay on the lookout!
Summer Seashell Exchange 🐚
Introducing the seashell event - a new way to unlock exclusive seasonal cosmetics simply by playing! Obtain seashells in the Resource World and bring them to the Shell Merchant at spawn to exchange for awesome cosmetics.
You have a slight chance to find seashells when mining sand at the following biomes:
- Warm Ocean
- Luke Warm Ocean
- Stony Shore
Remember: You can only obtain shells when mining sand at the correct biome in the Resource World. There is a 5% chance per block break to find a shell when mining any block.
A variety of new furniture has released and is available to purchase at the Summer Vendor. Some of these new furniture items are the following:
- Lawn Chairs
- Volleyball Nets
- & much more, available at the vendor!

Software Upgrades 💻
Over the last week we've transferred Craftadia to a better host with upgraded performance. Some of you may have noticed reboot times being significantly shorter than before. You can expect maintenance sometimes in the future as we make more adjustments.

I seriously hope you all enjoy this update! The dev team and I put some serious hours into this project, and I can't wait to see the server start growing once more.
