This page will soon be shut down. We have gone through a drastic change and this page is far outdated. We will start a new page, even with a new name. For more info please read the last post by me on this thread
Welcome to the official page of MagiCraft, one of the most accurate versions of Hogwarts and the rest of the Wizarding World in Harry Potter. Our main goal at MagiCraft is to provide the most accurate version of Hogwarts you will ever find in the Minecraft universe. We base our project mostly on the movies but add in extra detail and places from the books that have never appeared in any of the films. There are many other builds of Hogwarts out there and we try to learn from their mistakes (sometimes ALOT) and fix them in ours. We try to fix all the little things everyone else fails at. Also please don't criticize us for not being as grand as other builds, we're still in the middle of building and aren't even close to being done.
Currently all our work has been brought over to a new public server which anyone can log onto to view the latest version of our build. The IP address is:
*ATTENTION* Please read the spoiler below is you plan to log onto our server.
In our server, we try to make the experience as fun as possible. We have 5 main worlds, Hogwarts, Geminio, Imperius, Eden, and TestingGrounds. (Extra points to anyone who knows what Geminio does in the HP Universe). Here is a brief description of our worlds:
The main world, you spawn here and you get to explore the Wizarding World from there with creative mode. No one can build/destroy except Professors and all our current work will be shown here. This is our Main Project and this is where all completed projects will go. To return to this world, type /spawn
A replica world with a semi-recent copy of Hogwarts, except anyone has permissions to build in creative mode. This world and all structures will be reset usually every couple months and all your work will be deleted unless A. You transfer your structure to Imperius or B. Its awesome enough for me to add a protection on it and keep it. Do not greif this world, for it will lead to jailing/ban. To go to this world, type /warp Testing
Another creative free-build except Imperius is a flatland world with plots available. Anyone can build but your work might grefied unless in a plot. For a plot, ask any admin online at the time. Do not greif this world, for it will lead to jailing/ban. To go to this world, type /warp Imperius
A world still under construction, should be available within a month. Nothing can be mentioned yet except it is a survival world and has absolutely AMAZING terrain. Any member can get access to it early and newbies can ask to get a sneak peak.
Testing Grounds is a world where admins prepare builds/try out ideas. A lot of times we build our ideas there then transfer them into Hogwarts. To go to this world, type /warp Testing
A brand new world where we will be showcasing amazing work from Imperius and Geminio. The best projects will be copied there and will be rated from staff. Only the best will make it to this world. We also sometimes have contests to see who can build a certain part from Hogwarts the best, which will also be in this world. To see this world, type /warp Optima.
A world not yet implemented, it will be a copy of Hogwarts in which will be made for dueling with our magic plugin. Other wizarding elements will also be released with this world.
Geminio is a whole separate world in which we took the latest version of Hogwarts, copied it into Geminio, but let anyone build under certain rules. Have fun in Geminio creating any structures you want to share with everyone. If you build something amazing in that world or donate to our project, you will receive member status in which you receive many extra permissions and commands including:
Being an Animagus of your choice
Special access and sneak peaks of new worlds
any many more!
Rules for Geminio:
No greifing (Don't destroy other people's work)
No strong language (applies for both worlds)
No blowing up random stuf for fun (which mean don't cover Hogwarts in TNT then blow it up or even just blow up a tower, its just not cool)
and use common sense, don't be a jerk to people and listen to Professors (admins)
Imperius is the 3rd world, and is a flatland creative world which anyone can build in. This is the only world that you can get a plot setup for protection. Currently you will have to ask a member or a Professor for a plot.
Rules for Imperius:
1. Don't greif
2. Listen to Staff
3. Make a border around your project
4. Try to get a plot ASAP
5. Dont add random holes in the grass in Imperius
The 4th world is Eden and it is not open to the public yet, we are still working on it, but it will be a survival (possibly) pvp world.
We are also almost done fully configuring our magic plugin, currently we have members and Professors testing it all over, so be careful . It will be amazing once done and will try to match magic in the wizarding world as much as possible. (And trust me, so far, it's been alot of fun
We are also affiliated with the amazing mod, QuidCraft. Since we are a bukkit server, we are sadly not able to install it in our server until it ports to Spout or in the new mod API jeb wants to implement soon. Check out his page here. Hopefully he can soon port it and make your Harry Potter experience in Minecraft unforgettable.
If you have read all the rules, you may type "/warp" in game to get a list of warps. Then type "/warp <insertwarpnamehere> to teleport to that place. Use /warp to get to popular places around Hogwarts and to other worlds.
All Hogwarts Staff are know as Professors, you MUST obey them on the server.

Here are som awesome screenshots:
(New updated pictures are coming soon)
We are also developing a Hogwarts texturepack that will have many amazing features including wands, spells, House cloaks, different tools, etc., I promise it will be amazing when it's done PM me to get a sneak peak
It's because it's diagonal. Some parts of the castle needs to be diagonal so other parts can be vertical. If we had made the Entrance courtyard, the Great Hall and the Grand staircase vertically we'd have to make the rest of the castle diagonal.The other castles was 100% vertical which means that their castle is incorrect.
Yes, our version is mostly vertical but most of the things aren't completely diagonal, like the entrance courtyard isn't turned 45 degrees, mor like 20 or something, so we did our best to keep it vertical but match the movie as much as possible and we've had amazing results with it, plus it doesn't make a lot of famous places in Hogwarts look kinda crappy.
Plus, no offense for whoever does this by why would anyone use sandstone to build Hogwarts? It looks really bad... It's kind of obvious Hogwarts is made of stone...
I will also be getting a youtube page setup soon for some awesome videos
I started this project originally in May, I wanted to build everything in chronological order so I started building King's Cross... but that failed miserably... Then I started the great hall and it went great from there... until classes started again in September, work has slowed down alot.
Also the texture pack in those photos is LB PhotoRealism x512 (with optifine's "load far" option enabled on a 1080p screen, gahh it wuz laggy)
This server shows a lot of hard work, the regular build is filled with detail and is a Potter fan's dream. Geminio is great for messing around and trying some of your ideas out. You can really tell that the owner put a lot of work into making this a build.
I am sorry if I seemed like I was insulting you. All I wanted was to get a better relationship and better communication with each other, I wanted to see if we could unite in anyway in a peaceful way. My purpose is definitely not to cause harm to anyone. I admire your guy's build of Hogwarts very much, and I just didn't believe it was ever a valid argument to judge the two against each other. Also I have much different plans for our version than what you guys are planning, soon our projects will be very different (We still are going to finish Hogwarts AND the Wizarding World, we just have plans to do something major with it) I dislike things in yours and you dislike things in ours. But those are just opinions, I find no reason to fight over it. I am still willing to cooperate peacefully in anyway, or at least not have any reputation together, but I don't want any of us to feel negative to anyone. I do understand how more people would like your's, for we are only in beginning stages and are planning a complete remodel soon on a huge part of Hogwarts. It will look a lot different soon. I hope all of this arguing will stop immediately and let our projects continue peacefully. Also Mucky please check my reply I put on your thread.
I am done arguing and will only continue talking only in a normal conversation. I also still challenge PotterCraft staff to a Quidditch Match :smile.gif:
Currently under maintenance to fully adapt to the 1.2 world type and to update a couple plugins/mechanics. Should hopefully be up tonight, if not then definitely tomorrow. Currently white listed for staff and people of Member rank.
looking for an offical name for the project any ideas (check on Google or minecraft pages before saying the name to me) and I will ask the headmaster if he will accept it . However, if you cant post on this page for some reason talk to me on the server.
