Update Social Media
Well, Aurora has been running for four years, and we've grown to have over 200,000 in-game accounts and 600 Discord accounts.

We created social media accounts (namely Twitter and Facebook) back at the very creation of Aurora... but we haven't used it much. We've made a few attempts over the years, but nothing has really caught on.

That said, we figure after four years, we should make a real attempt at actively taking advantage of social media. We are going to be making some much-needed updates to the accounts over the next week and will start adding content fairly often.

That said, we would like to know what kinds of content you would be interesting in seeing, along with any other ideas you would like to see implemented for our social media.

Let us know here what you think!

Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to Aurora! Compiled here is a list of frequently asked questions related to the Minecraft server, as well as the answers to them. If you've navigated to this page, you should know a bit about the server and how it functions already, but we've covered everything notable in this guide just in case. In addition to this, information regarding the server is available in-game around the world's spawn point in the form of signs - it's highly recommended that you read them to learn more too. As with everything else, this FAQ works hand in hand with the rules, so you are encouraged to read them before proceeding.

What is Aurora Minecraft about?

Aurora Minecraft consists of 3 unique servers; Minigames, Creative, and Factions. We have an array of minigames, ranging from Tag to Spleef. The Creative server is where you can casually build whatever you wish in creative mode, with large plots available for you to claim. Factions is an all out survival war against other players or working with your friends. This isn’t like any other factions experience though, since every players had the ability to bend the elements, thanks to a plugin inspired by Avatar the Last Airbender!

Factions Server:

How do I use these bending powers?

You can use /bending choose <element> and choose from either air, water, earth or fire. We have detailed guides on each of the elements. For more information refer to...
AuroraCraft is now fully released!

Here is a full list of features to keep you updated and excited:
Factions

In our Factions server, you are able to use the elements, fire, water, air, earth, or become a skilled Chiblocker, to help defend yourself against the harsh environment, monsters and hostile players - this is derived from the popular cartoons Avatar the Last Airbender and Avatar the Legend of Korra.

Additionally, you may create your own Faction or join an already-existing one to help improve your chances of surviving, however, if you are the solitary type, you may also wonder the world as a factionless lone ranger. Be careful, as other players are able to wreak havoc on your base and raid your chests to steal all your hard-earned resources... keep your enemies close!

In the spirit of Avatar and competitive bending, you are also able to join Probending events at the Arena as a team of three. Winning such an event is a sure fine way to establish yourself in the Factions world.

There are also additional bending-specific arenas that cater to those looking for a more destructive use of their skills: ranging from arenas that benefit Waterbenders, Firebenders etc. to arenas that give all the elements a fair game, you are sure to find the right battleground to appease your bloodlust.


Creative

Want to relax and not worry about being raided and griefed? The Creative server features Plots which players can claim for free so you can build in peace of mind, and may purchase more plots in the future using the in game currency.


Minigames

We have an assortment of...
Rules & Regulations We need to talk.
It has come to our attention recently that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of what's appropriate within Aurora and what isn't.

While we appreciate diversity in chat, there are topics that just don't fit what we seek to be as a community.

Today, we are introducing some rank changes that have been in discussion for a while. We're making these changes to help create a more welcoming and friendly environment for our players.

Right now, we have an [Operator] rank and a [Moderator] rank, both of which act as staff members on our server. There's long been a sense of confusion about which ranks are supposed to take which roles on the server, so we're looking to clarify that with the following changes.

To start with, we are merging the [Operator] rank with the [Moderator] rank, which means you will no longer see the [Operator] rank in-game.

R.I.P. [Grief Watch]/[Operator] 2013-2016

Next, we are introducing a rank called [Helper]. This rank is a non-staff rank that players can volunteer for. Players with the [Helper] rank will be active community managers- err, community supporters that will have access to a variety of commands such as /mob, /boss, /region, and others which will enable them to help others without acting in any official staff capacity. All server operations such as grief management and player moderating will be handled by [Moderators] and above.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that haven't actually been asked and are being made up on the spot:

Why is this change being made?
The Operator and Moderator ranks were nearly identical in function, leading to confusion about the purpose of each rank and which roles they played on the server. This change will allow us to have one clearly defined "normal" staff rank (Moderator) and one clearly defined "volunteer" rank (Helper) for players.
What will happen to current Operators?
Current Operators will be demoted to Helpers once this change takes place. Operators will be given a chance to apply for Moderator before this change happens.
When will this change take place?
The Operator rank will be permanently removed in approximately two weeks. Current Operators...​

Greetings from the Aurorian staff!

It's been a while since we've made an official update, so we've decided to throw one out there!

Here's a quick summary:
npcbots.png

Finally I got my self to update NPCBots! \o/ *fireworks*
Which means you can again make your very own customized NPC, who talks to people.
Unfortunately there is some bug thanks to 1.3, which causes the NPC's to disappear for a split second when someone joins. Also I got reports of clone/dress not working properly due to that.

If this is the first time you heard about NPCBots, and you want to find out how to get one and how they work, check out the original thread here:
http://aurora-terraria.org/forum/threads/update-3-2-npcbots.2495/

Altho, please post your questions and reports to this thread from now on.

the command is /npc
Enjoy! ^^

PS: also accepting feature requests.
(Getting the NPC's to follow their owner is still work in progress.)
