HCSMP PREPARES FOR A NEW MAP FOR FEBRUARY 2020
Dec 21, 04:07 PM by Fairlane57

Time to get ready for a new map! We plan to release a new map in early February. We also plan to use the latest update (1.15.x). We will be as busy as bees getting ready for the new map and are soliciting your help, as always.

Help create your HCSMP world by designing a spawn for the new map! The design contest starts today and will continue until January 25, 2020.

Just like in the past, submit your spawn designs as a file download in a WorldEdit schematic or the world save file, along with some images of the spawn.

You may make submissions in either Ver 1.14.x or 1.15.x. We also would like your Nether Spawn submissions along with the overworld! They can be submitted separately. 

We'll accept submissions until January 25th at 23:59 GMT (6:59pm Eastern standard time), and then we'll put all entries to a community vote.

Winner of the overworld spawn will receive 3 "god apples". The runner up gets 1 "god apple"! Winner of the nether spawn gets 1 "god apple" (no runner up)! This means one winner could potentially win 4 "god apples".

Here are some guidelines for making the spawn:

Total overworld spawn area is 200x200 - your build should fit within this but does not have to fill the whole area.
Total Nether spawn area is 100x100 (yes we would like you to include a nether spawn)
Lots of redstone is bad.
Be sure to include nether portal(s) inside spawn
No enderchests, anvils, enchanting tables, etc.
Paths or symmetry with exits in the four cardinal directions is ideal.
Admins will need to add signs along the paths for new players - take this into account!

If your spawn doesn't win this map, you can always submit it for another! 

Also remember that some adjustments may need to be made by admins if your spawn is accepted. By submitting your designs you are giving us permission to modify them as needed and use them in future maps or builds as we see fit.

Good luck!
Your Admin Team

HCSMP TRANSITIONS TO A NEW OWNER!
Nov 29, 09:27 PM by Fairlane57

Hawtre passes the baton to Ossbourne.
Below is Hawtre's farewell message, posted on Reddit earlier today.

Hi everyone.

It was 5 years ago (almost to the day) that foxi stepped down as the previous owner of HCSMP, having done an amazing job with running things but not having time to continue due to his career.

As any of our regulars will know, I too have been inactive due to my career, and HCSMP has been neglected as a result.

Like foxi before me, it's now time for me the pass the server on to someone that has the capacity to give it what it needs, and I'm happy to say that person is Ossbourne.

I will shortly be migrating the minecraft server, website, and the rest of our infrastructure and assets to a new server owned by Ossbourne.

I'm not one for long posts, so I'll keep this short. Ossbourne has done a great job as admin and I believe he'll bring some well needed rejuvenation to the server as the new owner. I wholeheartedly thank everyone that has volunteered their time as staff, and those that chose to make HCSMP their home, even for a short while.

Bye!

NEW MAP FOR AUGUST 2019 IS READY!
Jul 31, 02:55 PM by Fairlane57

The winner of our spawn competition is FinalHeaven88!!! Congratulations!!! You won both contests and will receive 3 revives and 1 enchanted golden apple (god apple).

The new map is finally ready!!! It is version 1.14.4!! We will go live at 20:00 (8:00pm) GMT. It takes a while to migrate the map so the server will be offline for a bit around 20:00 while we complete the transfer. Please be patient and check frequently to see if the server is up.

Have Fun!!! We hope to see you ingame.

Your Admin Team

August new spawn voting
Jul 28, 02:16 PM by hawtre

Hi all, it's nearly time for the new map and we've had a few spawn entries on the forums and the subreddit.

https://hcsmp.com/forums/thread/enter-the-july-2019-spawn-contest-and-win/5712

https://www.reddit.com/r/hardcoresmp/comments/c25kym/_/

Please place your vote below for an overworld spawn and a nether spawn and on the 29th midnight we'll choose the spawn with the most votes.

Winner of the overworld spawn gets two free revives and 1 "god apple". The runner up gets one free revive! Winner of the nether spawn gets 1 free revive (no runner up)! This means one winner could potentially win 3 free revives.

Thanks to all who submitted a spawn! Good luck!

ENTER THE 2019 SPAWN CONTEST AND WIN!
Jul 13, 07:24 PM by Fairlane57

You may have figured out that the new map did not start in July. The new map will now begin on or near August 1, 2019 and will be 1.14.x. The design competition for the new spawn is still going on.

Just like in the past, submit your spawn designs as a file download in a WorldEdit schematic or the world save file, along with some images of the spawn.

You may make submissions in either Ver 1.13.x or 1.14.x. We also would like your Nether Spawn submissions along with the overworld! They can be submitted separately. 

We'll accept submissions until July 26th at 23:59 GMT (7:59pm Eastern daylight time), and then we'll put all entries to a community vote.

Winner of the overworld spawn gets two free revives and 1 "god apple". The runner up gets one free revive! Winner of the nether spawn gets 1 free revive (no runner up)! This means one winner could potentially win 3 free revives.

If your spawn doesn't win this map, you can always submit it for another! If we use your spawn submission on a different map you will receive two free revives.

Also remember that some adjustments may need to be made by admins if your spawn is accepted. By submitting your designs you are giving us permission to modify them as needed and use them in future maps or builds as we see fit.

Good luck!
