• published the article New PayPal Options on Trial in CurseForge Store

    We're excited to announce that with the expansion of the Author Rewards Program, two new PayPal options are available on a trial basis in the CurseForge and WoWAce stores! Authors are now able to cash out at $100 and $150, respectively.

    A lower cash incentive has been a long-requested feature, and over the next two months, we'll be testing these two payment amounts as a long-term option. Please feel free to give us feedback regarding these options, as we are always looking to better serve our authors!

  • published the article Minecon Free Premium Weekend!

    With both Minecon and the brand new Minecraft features live in the Curse Client this weekend, Curse is offering a free Premium weekend to all of our users for the Curse Client!

    Wanted to try out saved world sync, addon sync, one-click updating, or just wanted to see what the ad-free experience would look like? You'll have a chance to explore these and more for free until Monday, November 26th, at 9AM CST. Any worlds you sync during this time will be kept in our storage for a month, giving users plenty of time to consider purchasing a Premium subscription to continue taking advantage of its benefits!

    Don't forget that plugin developers who uploads their plugin to our BukkitDev or CurseForge services and receive 1,000 or more downloads get a free Curse Premium subscription as thanks for your contribution to our community!

    A quick overview of the brand new Minecraft features are as follows:

    • World Saving: Each and every world you've made in Minecraft can be backed up through the Curse Client, with the ability to manage your backups through an easy to use interface. A "More Info" tab provides you with quick access to your health, level, the number of items in your inventory and gives you the ability to copy your world's seed for easy sharing at the click of a button.
    • Quick Saving: Every world that is backed up is then quick saved every few minutes by the Curse Client, with the ability to force a quick save by hitting the Escape key and bringing up the Minecraft pause menu. Built an awesome house only to have a creeper pop up out of nowhere and blow it up? Now you can easily click to restore your your world to before that happened!
    • World Syncing: Curse Premium members will have the additional ability of being able to easily and quickly upload their world saves to the cloud, which makes it available for download on any PC you want to play your world on!

    Get started now by downloading the Curse Client, or check out that very same link for all the awesome features the Client has to offer gamers!
