We need an official name for the project, please PM me or Viva! We need this to release pre-releases and so we can make videos.
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. The server may be laggy at points due to admins (like me) because of big worldedit stuff. Sometimes, it will be off for reasons I do not know.
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.
**Unnamed Dueling World**
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! Possibly more coming soon.
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 &--#60;insertwarpnamehere&--#62; 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
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
THIS PAGE WILL SOON BE CLOSED
MagiCraft has a new name! Project Potter!
Hogwarts has changed drastically since I created this topic, and instead of continuously updating, I will be making a new page soon for the all new server. We are going through a huge change right now and have many goals that will turn MagiCraft into "Project Potter", including:
Completely renovating most buildings in Hogwarts
Completely redesigning and fixing the spells system
Adding in more favorites including Azkaban, Ministry Of Magic, Malfoy Manor and many more
And starting a new long-planned system for a Role-Playing, RPG type adventure in Hogwarts!
We will also start making lots of videos, a new website is coming, and much much more!
So stay tuned, it's gona be great once Project Potter is finished
No videos please, videos will be done by me or the other admins. Videos will be made when we have an official name and we will start releasing pre- releases. Thanks for the offer though.
