iCraft was a custom server started by iKJames. It was written in Python 2.6, and maintained by The iCraft Team. Management and hosting of iCraft was undertaken by The Archives, the originator of the underlying Myne server, the original and longest running Myne-based server. The server has been named the "Best Myne Mod" by the original Myne developers.

History[edit]

v1.x[edit]

Status: AGPL v3

In March 2010, Hyvebuild was born due to some problems caused in the days of Mynecraft, which all came about due to HLMC (HelpLarge Minecraft). Development began and many regular updates were released, publicly. Many new features were added, bugs were fixed and other changes were made. When 1.8 came out, Hyvebuild's name was changed to iCraft due to iKJames' love of Apple, which resulted in a huge change in the software and its potential future.

Versions Beta 1.x-4.x - March 13, 2010 (Our first versions were versioned as "Beta x.y")
Versions 1.0-1.7 - March-May 2010 (Before name was changed to iCraft)
Version 1G (1.8) - May 2010 (Name was changed from Hyvebuild)

v2.x[edit]

There were many times during our v1.x release cycle we're thinking to make a v2.0 with a different license and/or name.

Hyvebuild 2 - Unknown (May 2010?)
Originally meant to be very different from the v2.0 we've come to know, not including cmdblocks/Interact.

myBuild (Kit/Lite) - Unknown (May 2010?)
Originally was going to strip most features of Hyvebuild, offering a "Lite" version, with all plugins available for separate download. With a Kit version to provide tools to extend the software, along with a full version. Plans changed a lot.

Status: SemiPrivate

The core files of iCraft were released compiled due to people stealing the source, modifying the files, and so on. Most plugins (with the exception of a few, for example: cmdblocks) were open source due to licensing problems. Releases became rarer and were bigger in size. Plans for future builds weren't released to the public.

Version 2.0.0 - 23 June 2010 (Initial Release. This changes everything.)
Version 2.0.1 - 28 June 2010
Version 2.0.2 - 29 June 2010
Version 2.0.4 - 15 July 2010

During 2.5's early development we released a few early betas, after which gdude2002 came to us and said our changing the license wasn't allowed. Everyone came to the terms of open sourcing everything under the CC by-nc-sa 3.0. A few more private betas later, The Archives came to the team to ask if they can use iCraft due to their VPS not being paid for, as a temporary backup measure. The team agreed and The Archives launched again using iCraft which ended up being a major win. HLMC ended up merging with The Archives. The release cycle was kept the same for the final 2.5 release by releasing on Bitbucket instead but on a cycle that's less aggressive then the ancient days of Hyvebuild. Security was a priority, now more open on new information..
