If you're a Minecraft fan and are looking for an epic project to be a part of, join us as we build the entire Texas A&M University campus in Minecraft! Hundreds of hours have already been poured into recreating, block-by-block, portions of the campus by over 40 players, but there's still LOTS more to do!
Here's some of our progress:

This is a casual, family-friendly community build. The server is open to anyone as a Guest, but to take part in the build you must post to this thread and ask to be added as a Builder (see below) - provided you follow a few simple rules:
- NO GRIEFING (it should really go without saying - grief and you get kicked)
- A wide range of players are involved so be mindful of your language, both verbal and in chat
- Ask for help if you need it, provide help if you are asked.
- There's a lot of Aggies involved in this build - and we don't like trolls
There are three areas of play on the server. The A&M campus build in Creative Mode, PointsMatter World (survival mode) and COMING SOON - Aggieland Hunger Games!
You can switch between the worlds by one of two ways:
- On your first spawn you will be in the Nexus, simply walk through the appropriate portal.
- To switch between worlds once you have visited a world, use the command
/worldwarp [world_name](replacing [world_name] with either world_marooncraft, nexus or pointsmatter_world). This command will warp you to your last location (or the spawn location) on that world, keeping your inventory intact!
Currently server version 1.7.2
The server IP is: s22.hosthorde.com:25902

In Minecraft Launcher, click on 'New Profile', name it, and then about 2/3rds of the way down use the drop down next to "Use version" to select the correct release version, save the profile.
Play Minecraft with the proper profile selected. To connect to the server, click on 'Multiplayer' then click 'Add server'. Name the server, then enter s22.hosthorde.com:25902 as the Server Address and click 'Done'. Highlight the server and click 'Join Server'.
Users on the server are broken into several categories:
Guests: Can only walk/fly around and interact in the MaroonCraft world. Cannot build, destroy or issue server commands. We want the world open to ANYONE that wants to come in and look around. Any user that logs in will be automatically made a Guest unless already in a different category. Normal access to PointsMatter World and Aggieland Hunger Games.
Builder: Have access to Creative Mode in the MaroonCraft build. Cannot issue server commands. YOU MUST REGISTER AND POST IN THIS THREAD FOR WORLD EDIT ACCESS. Normal access to PointsMatter World and Aggieland Hunger Games.

Admin: Access to all server commands in the MaroonCraft build with the ability to kick & ban players. Normal access to PointsMatter World and Aggieland Hunger Games.
Please post your in-game name to be added to the server. All new users will be placed in the 'Builder' category. Please contact an 'Admin', post in this thread or PM me if you would like to be moved into the 'Builder+' or 'Admin' categories. Only trusted builders will be given access to THE WAND (ALL HAIL THE WAND!)
