Sadly, Castle Siege has gone down and will be down for about the next four days due to a quick power outage. I would be able to put the server back up but I am not at my house and can't connect to the screen sharing program because my host computer is off. The server will be down for roughly the next four days (while I write this) which is a bummer, because that is a gap where we COULD be building! No matter! I suggest many of you who are looking to help out, watch/practice as many building tutorials as you can to become masters of the build! When the server comes back up we can slap down out some amazing towns and get this server started! I suggest watching "Jamziboy" on youtube. Probably the best out there!
Also, it is required that you use the custom resource pack and download either optifiine or mcpatcher to use with it. Both of these files are just a .jar file that can be installed when you open the .jar file and click a single install button; it doesn't take long at all!
THE REASON you need to download these is so you can see all the extra textures we are building with that are included in the res. pack. The only way you can possibly SEE these extra textures is with Optifine or Mcpatcher. Examples are fish/meat hanging from ropes, seeing the many extra wood textures (like barrels and boxes for cargo) seeing real smoke coming out of houses instead of spiderwebs, seeing big rugs of wolf hide/bear hide, seeing connected textures/non-repeating blocks, seeing actual bottles of wine/kegs of ale/wine racks at taverns, and..and... A lot more. Using mcpatcher or optifine makes the world look so much cooler with no added lag! GET ONE OF THEM! IT'S EASY!

(By the way, these are barley mods! Do not let them scare you! They are very easy to install! Comment if you have any questions! You only need one of them!)
