Project Description: FreeCraft was a project created by SeanStar5. I have been unable to locate much information on this project since its termination. I randomly joined this Minecraft server around June 2012 (shortly after I built my first PC), and found myself donating to support the server. After logging many hours in-game, I applied for the rank of Moderator on this server and made it to the last round of interviewing with one other candidate before I was rejected. I eventually found out JMM had convinced SeanStar to overlook my application in favor of another candidate. Thus, I never became a member of staff on this server. This is also where I met both SeanStar and JMM and worked with both on separate projects. I worked with SeanStar on Elusion Gaming and JMM on DarkVault, both as Co-Owners of each project.
This project began in the very early stages of Minecraft’s development, dating back around the time the alpha version of the game was released. SeanStar developed a unique server for its time, setting the foundation for many Minecraft server owners (including my MildMadness project and JMM’s Dynamic Minecraft project). SeanStar implemented features such as the Towny Plugin and Player Markets before any mainstream servers thought of the idea. However, SeanStar had some difficulty staying active on the server due to personal issues, and ultimately became inactive until JMM literally blew the server up with TNT. Around this time, I left the server to focus on MildMadness and the FreeCraft server entered an “on-and-off” phase.
FreeCraft reached levels of popularity and participation both JMM and myself could not duplicate with our own Minecraft server projects. This was because SeanStar had the natural talent to draw people together behind his banner and have a good time. Although existence of this server has vanished, I thought it important to record the history because it set the foundation for many members to start their own projects, including myself and JMM.
Message to Project Participants: To those of you being redirected from the FreeCraft domain, this is all of the information I can provide. I am no longer in contact with SeanStar.
