In the fourth quarter of 2013, one of our members had the idea to start a medieval themed world. Building off of the idea, we slowly created a world we quickly gave name to "Project: Midieval", spelling thanks to the member who named the world. For a while, all we focused on was the large central city of the map, but slowly we spread out and created other areas and lore for our world. Our final project would be a downloadable RPG to hopefully contend with the likes of Skyrim.
As time went on however, our map continued to grow and we gathered more members because of it. Through multiple full-on discussions, we eventually decided to change from something single player to more of a full fledged MMORPG - one that we would eventually host and maintain, being able to give the game world an even better dynamic than our ideas previously offered. Now we are working harder than before in creating the world we dream of - building a full map of custom world material and importing our previous creations from the first world to not only make a world of quality but also quantity. Of course, with projects this large, it takes time and members - but great journeys start with but one step.
If you're interested in seeing more of our current project, please stop by our Official Release Thread at Planet Minecraft!
Who We Are
The Builders Coalition is a clan, but more of a family. Our goals are to have fun, make great maps, and build connections with all fans of Minecraft. Through bringing together people from all over the world, we have gathered those who build and terraform and others who work in the background with mods, art, and videos. We run off donations for the server, so this is a server by the community, for the community.
Long live Minecraft!
Want Us to Build For You?
We love to help out others in whatever way we can! One of those ways is through building for others - you get a cool project, we get some publicity and (we appreciate) money to help keep our server up and going. If you'd like us to work on something for you, feel free to fill out this form:
Means of Contact (skype preferred):
Description: The more info, the better!
Color Palette: ~optional~
Texture Pack: ~optional~
The more information you can give under Project Info, the better we can do our job! Every bit helps.
Payment is not required, but a paid project will have more priority than a free project.
Most projects will be built and completed on our own server, unless there is a specific reason as to not (i.e. specific plugins, etc)
We reserve the right to keep all work we have completed - whether as a world file as a whole or our specific builds as a schematic.
In the case you are no longer using the builds (server shutdown, etc), we reserve the right to publish the content publicly if we so choose to.
Within any situation we agree upon, you are given the license to use our work as you wish as long as we (The Builders Coalition [TBC]) are credited. Actions the license does not condone are:
Publishing our builds as your own, or publishing a project that includes more than 50% of our work.
Sharing our work in whole with others - if someone would like a copy, they are welcome to contact us with your permission given, and a copy will be provided.
Transferring license ownership to a someone else. Once the license is over (when the work is no longer being used on a server or some sort of public work), you cannot transfer over those rights to somebody else.
Summary: We just like to make everything as available as possible. If you no longer use our work, we want to be able to let others use it. And of course, we want credit where due.
If you have any further questions regarding a project you'd like us to work on for you, please ask via this thread or a PM to myself. Thank you!
A Note to Interested Builders
We are always looking for new members. If you feel like you'd like to join, please feel free to sign up! Want to build, but don't feel like you can keep up the pace or quality? We would love to help you. Build along others and learn new skills and make some great friends! That's what clans are for.
Asri - The Floating Spawn
This map started as a project that was originally asked for by the user Jade7777777, who in the time was in need of a server spawn. After coming to us, he decided he would like a floating island spawn – one large island with 8 smaller islands surrounding it. And so that’s what we did. We built it and went beyond what we originally imagined, thus creating what we now call “Asri”.
"Snowy" is the title name dubbed by Ben towards his creation, where he was inspired by the landscapes and rice fields of China, and in the end decided to give the area a nice coating of snow and wintery passion. The landscaping of this map was created 100% by Ben, and select trees from lentebriesje's archieves.

Well, you seem to be adequate in my opinion, but I'm going to have to check with lloyd. So hang tight and well get back to you.
P.S. your sig is freaking awesome!
Hey Shnel! Great to see another applicant! And yes - you are approved!
So - we need to figure out our first project! Does anyone have any ideas for something? At the moment all ideas are welcome for discussion. Are we wanting Adv, RPG, Surv, Parkour? What's the story line - or is there one?
I've had the best times in this game simply building, not necesarily RPG/RP, but just a big map with many towns, cities, landmarks, but no storyline or anything. It's just a leisure exploration sorta thing, and you can always stick in NPC's and a story
Okay, then that makes it somewhat easy. You will definitely be a builder - you shouldn't even have to worry about sorry line as well, unless there's something VERY specific that we need. Cool though ;P
Age:13 Experience (Minecraft):1 and a half years in building, and bout 1 year in redstone What I can offer:Im a allround person, and can help people with things Why I would like to join: I used to be on the team and i want to stay on Other: happy to see this back on, it's been a while
Skype would be nice, but the main problem we have is (unless I'm wrong) we cannot have more than two people on at once unless paid for. I'm looking into using either Google hangout (as I believe it has both voice/chat box options), or use a simple chatbox like Xat (something I've used in the past - easy to do). If you have any other ideas, please feel free to let me know.
As for the date of the meeting, I'd rather not hold it out too much, but we also need to find everyone's time zones so we can find a reasonable time. I'll start it off - I'm in Pacific Time Zone.
As for the rest, welcome to the clan Geesplit! Good to see more people applying! And welcome back Usho! Haven't seen you for a while!
Okay, thanks GeeSplit. I was thinking maybe sometime during the week, but I'm now leaning more towards this upcoming Saturday, probably somewhere in the afternoon such as 2:00 or 3:00. You're about 8 hours ahead of both me and Redeyz, so if we hit a time like that, it will be approx. 8:00 or 9:00 PM PST (20:00 or 21:00). Does that seem alright with you? And what about Usho, Shnell, DjLryicals?
Okay, due to lack of further responses, we will hold the meeting at 2:00 PM on this upcoming Saturday (Pacific Time Zone). It will be held on Google+ with the use of google hangout. I will start the hangout around 1:50 PM using my account, [email protected]
cant make saturday and time, but i always have 5:00-9:00 on mondays and varrying times on sundays. Saturdays i only have something from 11:30 to 1:00 but tommorow is an expeption and im going to be at a all day event
