    Hello!


    Recently we have been having discussions on whether or not to limit the the alts and the rules behind them.
    We are wanting to gather player feedback and concerns with changing the rules and limiting alts or just keeping them the same.

    Take the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/7SUDzvZJbOEbUp6E3

    Many of the old posts have been archived in order to organize the forums better. Posts in these sections will not count for post count, however likes you received within them will stay in addition to your trophy points received due to them. Originally I had wished to keep post count for these posts, however there was an excess of spam posts, some even having hundreds of spam replies as well. Therefore, they will not count for post count, but are still visible.

    Please attempt to keep the forums clean and do not spam or cause massive derailments in order to inflate your post count. Posts such as that will not be tolerated, and will be deleted.

    Hello everyone! We have added the Brewery plugin to the server. It allows you to produce alcohol, drink said alcohol, and get drunk from it. There are quite a few brews in the config currently for you to find.

    Here's a bit of info:
    Drinking alcohol gets you drunk, which makes you slur your speech in chat, as if you were drunk.
    You will get less drunk over time.
    Eating cake, cookies, milk, or bread will decrease your drunkenness.
    Brews have different levels of quality, and their names reflect this. For example, bad quality absinthe is called "Poor Absinthe," normal/average quality is just "Absinthe," and good/high quality is "Strong Absinthe." So if in your experiments you stumble upon a drink but by its name it isn't of the best quality, try tweaking your recipe until you perfect it.

    In this post I am going to outline how to brew your own alcohol.

    If you're more of a visual person, or just don't like reading here is a video tutorial, though the recipes used may not match up with ours:


    Fermenting
    Cauldrons are used to ferment. The cauldron is the birthplace of all brews. Place a cauldron above either fire or lava:


    The next thing you will need to do is fill your cauldron with water and add your ingredients. I will include a few recipes for some basic brews. For getting perfect brews, you need to ferment them in the cauldron for a specific amount of time. You can see the amount of time that your ingredients have been fermenting by right-clicking your cauldron with a clock, which will give you a message like this:


    Once you have fermented your ingredients for the correct amount of time, take out your masterpiece in progress with glass bottles. Cauldrons hold 3 bottles worth of liquid. After extracting the fermented liquid, depending on the brew, you may need to either distill it in a brewing stand or age it in a barrel.

    Distilling
    Some brews need to be distilled. Distilling is done using glowstone in a brewing stand:


    Glowstone is not consumed by distilling (so, to clarify, one would do just fine). Just as with fermenting, brews will take different amounts of time to distill. For example, this strong absinthe was distilled 4 times:


    Aging
    Some brews need to be aged in barrels. Barrels can be created from any wood type, and certain brews require certain wood types to be used for aging:


    There are two sizes of barrels:


    The smaller barrel has 9 slots (one row of inventory), the bigger barrel has the same storage as a single chest (3 rows of inventory, 27 slots).

    To make a small barrel you just need 8 stairs. Place them as seen in the photos above and place a sign on the bottom right of one of the faces and write on the first line "Barrel", hit done, and you will see this message:


    The large barrel is constructed as seen here:




    You will need 16 stairs, 18 planks, a fence, and of course a sign.

    As mentioned earlier, brews will take various amounts of time to age.

    Recipes
    There are a decent amount of brews currently in the config, with more likely to be added in the future. It will be a challenge to find them. Here are a couple to get you started.
    Absinthe:
    Ingredients: 15 grass
    Ferment: 5 minutes
    Distill: 6 times

    Ale:
    Ingredients: 9 wheat
    Ferment: 8 minutes
    Age: In oak barrel for 2 years

    Tea:
    Ingredients: 2 milk buckets, 6 leaves
    Ferment: 3 minutes​

    If you haven't heard by now, Coolsurdy has recently transferred ownership to Derp.

    My name is Eyefull, and I will be supervising the majority of things as the community manager. As for Dan, he will be overseeing the documentation of the server's history and in charge of the wiki for the server.

    We're going to be working hard these next few days to fix various issues and ensure that the transition goes smoothly, hopefully the server will go up soon.

    If you need to contact us, you can message us on the forums or on Discord, depending on what time it is we should respond shortly.

    We've pruned all staff applications, staff members, appeals, and reports as everyone was unbanned and there was a change in staff hierarchy. Staff applications will be reviewed again once the server opens. Everyone should be unbanned from the forums, discord, and game.

    The Discord and forums have received improved rules, and we're looking to alter a few of the in-game rules as well.

    Hello all,

    Nearly 5 years ago, I founded Civilization Wars. When I did, I had absolutely no idea how large it would become.
    • 33,381 unique players
    • 1,021 towns
    • 200 nations
    • 70 billion square blocks of conquered territory
    Needless to say, Civilization Wars will not be shutting down any time soon. A major revitalization will occur less than two months from today. Long live CivWars! ;)
