The forums have been re-arranged and organized a bit. Mostly consolidated a large chunk of forum sections by merging them together. I've also removed a bunch of the older user groups and tweaked some of the colors. This is a brand new Theme that I created to match the previous longest running version. For keep sake, I thought it might be fun to keep a screenshot of what the last version, check it out to the left.
Don't worry, I didn't delete anything, you'll find much of the older stuff in The Archives.
I have always had a sense of pride in our downloads section of the website. While I am fully aware it wouldn't be what it is without the amazing people who created all those files; I still consider it to be one of the largest collection of Starcraft hacks on the net. In moving forward, the focus of the website will not be populating the downloads but I do not intend to remove this section either. I am still going through and auditing all the downloads to see which ones are broken or have broken images, and in the future I may add files here and there for fun.
Game Hacking at Ghoztcraft
I have always been an advocate in allowing users to hack the games they own, and I will continue to be. If it's your game, fuck it up as much as you'd like. I will always support game hacking and cheating here and that will always be at the heart of this community. Our game servers (see below) will allow hacking as long as it doesn't ruin the experience to other players or cause any major issues to our servers or network. Where possible, any cheat detected software will be disabled.
Should we have the demand and the funding, we will release some game hacks from Ghoztcraft in the future. It goes without saying, the old days are long gone. Many modern games have significantly cracked down on hacking and cheating for online multiplayer games and thus it is much more difficult today then it was a decade ago.
I am very excited to announce that I will be bringing online various game servers! I intend to use these game servers to hang out with the community here as well as a source to grow the website. I can't say how excited I am to get this going. These servers are not all online as of the re-launch of the website, but I will be bringing them online in the coming weeks.
These games include;
There is also a new section for each of these new game servers. That said, I also need some new moderators and game masters to manage these servers. Applications for these positions will be open once the servers are up and running.
In an effort to keep the website and game servers funded and online, I will be bringing back the subscription based VIP Membership. Users can make donations or purchase VIP Membership monthly subscriptions. As a VIP Member, you will receive the following perks:
Reserved game server player slot
In-Game serer specific perks (see forums for details)
Advertisements are hidden
Access to VIP forums
Access to VIP downloads
Access to VIP discord channels
Additional forum enhancements (manage your own content, upload larger files)
A ghoztcraft.net email account (on request)
Note: Any existing VIP Members will NOT lose their VIP Membership for those who have lifetime VIP Membership. This VIP Membership will carry over into our game servers where you will gain those perks relative to the game server you're playing on. Instructions on how to gain your in-game perks will be announced at a later date.
With that said, welcome back everyone!
