CivCraft is a game that allows you to create your own Civilizations in Minecraft! Just like in Civilization, you have to research and build up your Civ. However, the game is played from a first-person perspective, you can make your own items, and you can work together with a team of other players!
You start out with wooden tools and a bit of food when you first join. The default Spawn is a small town with a bank, grocer, and global market. You can sell iron, gold, diamonds and emeralds at the bank, and buy or sell things like wood, cobble, feathers, leather etc. on the global market. You’re able to buy cooked fish at the grocer as well.
CivCraft has its own set of special Materials that you'll need in order to progress. You’ll want to start out by building a Camp. This will allow you to start gathering all the things you'll need to construct a Civilization. The resources it takes will sound overwhelming, but time flies when you have friends to help!
The point of the game is to make a Civilization that will stand the test of time.
This is a very long-term game. No matter what you are planning to do with your Civ, you will have to log on regularly. For one, you have to gather enough in-game currency to pay for your Civ. All buildings have an upkeep cost, but don’t fret! It isn't hard to earn money, and if you keep your Civ small in the beginning, the upkeep cost is very manageable.
When you’re first starting, it's a good idea to read the wiki, and to either bring a large group of trustworthy friends, or join an already established Civ.
