Does the Windows Ten Version of Minecraft work or do I have to buy it direct from Mojang for the PC?

  • In order join the server you need the "Java Edition" of Minecraft. This is the standard version compatible on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

What is WesterosCraft?

Our mission is to recreate the universe imagined by author George RR Martin in his book series A Song of Ice and Fire(ASoIaF) as accurately and precisely as possible within the confines of Minecraft, in an effort to custom create a world which will be the stage for a roleplaying game. In pursuit of this endeavor we aim to provide a friendly and encouraging atmosphere for our creative community at all times.

To accomplish this we use our Forums , this Wiki , a Dynamic Map , Discord , a Custom Launcher , and the Song of Ice and Fire books in addition to hundreds of online resources that we use to learn as much as possible about the world we are building.

Most importantly, we are a community of people dedicated to both our loves for Minecraft and the ASoIaF series, and use this project as a way to explore our relevant interests.

What is a custom launcher and why do you have one?

Over the years we found that we were slowly pushing the limits of what a traditional Minecraft game could handle, and decided we needed to develop our own launcher in order to handle our constantly growing needs. A launcher is a program designed to 'launch' an application, such as Minecraft. As long as you have a legal copy of the Minecraft game, you should be able to use our launcher without issue. You can purchase a digital copy of Minecraft here . The launcher enables us to expand our inventory of custom blocks, provide everyone with easy-access to our custom texture pack, and to be able to implement roleplaying elements into the game which could otherwise not exist. You can easily download our launcher here.

When can I roleplay on the map?

  • We're working on this project since late 2011. So far, we've done and redone our map a couple of times, at present we are roughly at 62% completion.We can not make a reliable prediciton about when we would be able to finish this, but we're getting closer with every house and every castle that's built.
  • Here is a link to our list of WesterosCraft Projects .

Can I download the map?

  • Unfortunately the whole map is not available for download. One reason would be the large file size of the map, another that the map is and always will be free to visit.
  • We provide download links to some of our most iconic locations. These places have since been remade on our server, but you may visit them by downloading them here.

Are you going to build Essos? (Qarth, Astapor, Braavos, etc)

  • While the immediate goal is to finish Westeros, there is a great deal of interest in Essos and its creation. It is more than likely we will create all of Essos, but it will still be quite some time before we get there.

What are the ranks of the server?

  • Nobuild: Exactly what it means, these members and visitors do not have any permissions to alter our map. This is the default starting rank.
  • NewBuilder, [N]-Builder: Also called Probation Builder, or Probie. They have permissions to build, but are required to meet certain requirements. An experienced builder assists them during their first weeks of buildership.
  • Builder: The server's workforce. They create most of the content by hand.
  • Builders with Editor Lite, [E]-Lites: Builders can apply for limited WorldEdit perms to use for terraforming heavy operations at their own projects.
  • Editors: These are builders with permissions for WorldEdit and VoxelSniper. They handle minor worldediting requests as well as large terraformings
  • Moderators: Handle the administration of the server. They reply to builder applications, organise and moderate content creation, serve justice and officially represent the community.
  • Coders: The technical backbone of the server, they maintain the complex workings 'behind the scenes'
  • Administrators: The founders and captains of the server, they are in control of the finances and hardware.
