Hey there, welcome to SwingCraft.
I ought to introduce myself; my name is Steve, AKA SecondEdit. I have been in the business of running Minecraft servers for a couple of years now. Since version 1.4, I have hosted a server for my friends and high school classmates only. Now that I'm attending Miami University, I've decided to open up my server to the public. Aside from our eSports club, I am fairly certain that this is the only Minecraft server on campus. I have always enjoyed playing Minecraft with other players, so you can expect to see me in survival mode quite often.
Our server is open to anyone willing to play, as long as you are 18 years or older. I've made exceptions before, so if you consider yourself mature enough to play in a more down to earth Minecraft environment, feel free to join if you are under-age.
SwingCraft is running Craftbukkit, so we have many, many plugins to enrich the SMP experience. Most notable plugins are:
- mcMMO | Essentials | OtherDrops | CraftBook | WorldEdit | WorldGuard
As listed, we use WorldGuard primarily for region protection. Anyone is allowed to have a WorldGuarded region of reasonable size - the only requirement is that you ask!
Our server has several ranks:
Rank I / II / III / IV / V - Standard rank progression, with each new rank unlocking new benefits and abilities. These abilities range from extra permanent hearts to invulnerability to fall and creeper explosion damage.
Builder- Assists the architects with server building projects.
Architect - Head builders - in charge of server building projects. Has access to WorldEdit.
Moderator - Helps to keep the community pleasant.
There are no donations on our server! Any and all ranks or benefits can be earned entirely in-game
If you aren't the building type, our Spawn has many houses for sale / for rent.
Our server is always online, and we have a couple gigs of dedicated RAM just for Minecraft. Swing by and say hello!

I'm back and active again. On another note, I've fixed the issue with the PlotMe world (/warp plotworld) not functioning properly.Posted in: PC Servers

Jul 9, 2014Update: Spleef has been added to our server! Our spleef minigame is completely plugin-free, and is powered only by Redstone and Command BlocksPosted in: PC Servers
Spleef is accessible via the South Gate in Spawn - To get there, simply run /spawn, turn right, then left, and follow the road out of town. You can't miss it - there's a giant floating diamond shovel above the arena.
One button powers the Spleef arena reset functionality. To prevent the spawn from being abused, there is also a backup button at the base of the tower that can reset the arena from a more remote location. Free golden shovels are available to players, too!
Jul 9, 2014Update: Several new plugins have been installed. We are now able to automate our region-purchasing in Spawn WITHOUT an admin being online. As a result, I expect that Spawn plot space will become very limited in the near future, so I have also installed PlotMe, in order to make a purely residential world.Posted in: PC Servers
I have also installed a Points plugin to track a player's progress through the Tower of Achievement. Each floor now requires a different amount of points to access. Points are obtained from completing minigames and are awarded to particularly helpful or dedicated players.

Our server Spawn is filling up quickly! I've counted, and there are about 25 plot still open to the public.
Jul 7, 2014Thanks for the excellent replies, everyone!Posted in: PC Servers
New update: Installed an Announcer plugin to remind players of all the updates going on in the server right now. In the next few days, I plan on adding a Hunger Games map, and continuing my search for a robust region-purchasing plugin.
I have also built a couple of new buildings: the Spawn Duplex and the Spawn Apartments. There is no cost to move into these buildings - the only difference from normal plots is that you may not alter the structure of the buildings.

In other news, all spawn plots are now fully listed as available. We are working on obtaining an updated plot-purchasing plugin. Until then, an admin must assign you to a plot.
