    Server is down..


    That's odd. It rarely goes down. It may have been a short backup that crashed the server or something.

    More will be added if this is insufficient during peak hours

    No Ops

    Only a passive anti-cheat monitor is employed. Bans will use the console if cheats or x-rays are detected.

    The server is prepaid for years. Resets will only occur by necessity (i.e. new update or severe hacking)

    If you enjoy the server, please bump this post so more can find out!

    Why I created this server,

    I'll keep this short.

    I have searched very thoroughly over the past week for a decent vanilla server where I can enjoy minecraft the way I did back in the old vanilla server days. I have been through every 'anarchy' and 'vanilla' server advertised in the forums, and found that none of them provide a true vanilla playstyle.

    Here are the problems I encountered:
    • Non-persistent worlds - The server owners are known for server wipes, changes, and other activities that discourage anyone from enjoying a permanent presence on their server.
    • "Pay to win" anarchy - Servers that sell permanent armor and tools or offer other advantages to those willing to pay.
    • Item-spawning - Server operators abuse their item-spawning abilities to provide advantages for themselves and their friends.
    • Mods - Although these are somewhat acceptable on 99% vanilla servers, many of the mods completely ruined the continuity of the game. These included spawn area portals and other add-ins. Some 'Vanilla' servers are modified so terribly that it is clear they are only using the 'Vanilla' tag to attract players.
    Because I could not find a single server that is truly an anarchy, vanilla, persistent server, I was forced to create my own.

    Essentially, this server will provide players to provide the opportunity to enjoy minecraft in the single-player fashion, but with the multiplayer element that will allow them to engage in conflicts and friendships if they desire. There are no map limits, so it is completely possible to wander far away and play in isolation for as long as you desire.

    The spawn area will no doubt be a very chaotic, violent place, so tread carefully until you are far away enough to create a bed. If you're lucky, you will find friends who will help you get established.

    I hope this will recapture that feeling from when minecraft was in development. You would wander a lonely world, and explore amazing wilderness - but you would always wonder 'am I really alone'?

    Will the biomes be off center?

    I don't mind having to generate new chunks to find new features.

    However, I simply don't want to let go of all the progress we have made in my SMP map.

    Since the new world format, have biomes been screwed up when you generate chunks with a new update?

    Are there any other limitations I'm forgetting about here?

    This is the last vanilla server ever to be seen on these forums. people on here are panzies and sellouts. Enjoy it, it will be up for the rest of the year, 24/7, and will only change with updates.

    The map will not be altered. Nothing will enter or leave the game unless players create it.

    Only rule is no cheating.

    This is a PERSISITENT server, and will not be erased or rebuilt on the whims of the creators.Player count will be altered if it is popular

    Can you survive in a world of total Freedom? In a world where things can be lost, everything has greater value. A diamond pickaxe that you will have forever on a creative build server (99% of them on this forum), is not as valuable to you as a diamond pickaxe that could be taken from you at any second by an army of monsters or another player. As Achilles said: "The gods envy us mortals because we are doomed".

    We love our players so we are a 100% Legitimate Server! No cheating or moderator item spawning is allowed to protect your hard work!

    Do whatever you want within the game design. No cheating is allowed! Our only mods are borderlands (to keep the map at a realistic size) and griefalert (to catch cheaters). The actual in-game portion of play is completely vanilla! You will never see any modifications unless you reach server borders.

    Spawn area is protected to prevent massive creeper/TNT damage which scares off new players. Head west 100 blocks and you will be homefree to explore the whole server :smile.gif:.

    Server IP:72.51.33.136:26565
    Warning to 'fake survival server' players:

    "Creative Mode" players will not enjoy this server. This server is best played by those familiar with the game mechanics who are interested in a combat/gathering/hiding/politics challenge. Competitive players are going to enjoy this server alot more than pure builders.
    
    We are a very difficult server to begin in. Politics is a must as you will find alliances/betrayals, and enemies very quickly. Prepare to lose everything you have several times. This server provides [u]challenge[/u], something very rare among 'survival multiplayer' servers. At the beginning you will be weak and people will beat you down. Monsters will feast on your bones, and you will lose items constantly. This failure is part of the process. It will help you begin to follow the survivial routine that most of our players have to adhere to.
    
    You will eventually have a decent hoard with some good items, and a territory you roam. Many other players will try to find your hoard and may stalk you as you become established and they know you have stuff hidden.
    
    The genius day/night cycle notch designed truly shows on our server. People spend all day hurridly gathering goods outdoors. At night they build their base and craft items. Most players don't want to lose health or possible their items fighting zombies, so they don't venture out much at night. You will find yourself asking in general chat when morning is if you are underground. As soon as dawn strikes most players are running out of their homes pretty quickly. Many players keep a watch to get a jump on morning. This allows you to get out of your den before another nearby player can stride into your territory and notice where your base entrance is. It also let's you get a jump on the hunting.
    
    You will feel accomplishment on this server when you get good gear. It is hard-earned and almost as hard to keep. A set of diamond armor is likely to attract groups of ambushers if you are caught alone by them.

    Maybe the respawn time should be lowered? 10 mins seems a more appropriate range. It will keep people populating the server while also giving an incentive to survive.

    Just my $0.02Great server though!

    How experienced are you with skyblock: Not at all. Very experienced with survival multiplayer and building, however
    Why do you want to join this server?: The community seems pretty good. The server seems fun and adventuresome.
    Have you read the rules and realize that any griefing or stealing AT ALL is logged with the logblock plugin and you will be banned if it is reported?: I read it thrice! Totally understand and agree with the rules!

    The idea is that the map will become more and more desperate as resources dwindle. Unlike most servers, which features very very heavy INFLATION of resources, ours features a slight ammount of deflation. Remember, those diamond weapons/armor all slowly dwindle over time.

    Typically, a couple of good archers can beat or at least hold their own against diamond armored tanks. Also, use lava buckets and traps against those guys. Lure them into lava/tnt traps. Get creative.

    I've never seen one faction control this server very long. It's like trying to take over a country where everyone wants to stab you in the back.

    Personally, I think the server is well designed at the moment. The only issue is the cheaters...

    Idea: We can give the mods the ability to view block edits. Then, we will place chests in very random spots. If we find people who get a 'direct' path to a chest with little or no searching, then we know they are cheating. This would be like a honey pot for cheaters and will not give us any false positives.

    Hmmmm, which mod should be used to accomplish this..

    Sorry I haven't been on lately guys. This server belongs to all of you - I am simply paying/administrating but the idea of this server is that it belongs to nobody. Continue to come up with criticisms and ideas and maybe we can bring this server back to what it used to be.

    Now to work on the 'see through walls issue'.

    Take note that you can do several things to mitigate this issue as players.

    1. Store your valuable items in chests ONLY while you are online.

    Load them onto your character before logging off in a safe location. This will leave cheaters a much smaller window of opportunity to get your valuables - and it will be harder for them to sneak up on your valuables with you online. As usual, seperate valuables from non-valuables.

    2. Surround chests with other substances.

    Dirt, lava, obsidian, grass, cobble, whatever. Surround your valuables chests and they will be harder to spot for many wall hackers. Put them in an unambiguous location that is seperate from your main base/workshop/farm. This will be only marginally effective against wall hackers who 'flag' chests with a certain color, although not all wall hackers can do that.

    3. Quit hoarding, start living!

    Kill people rather than hoarding materials you have farmed/factoried. This is a server where it is entirely possible to survive through combat, and prosper doing so. Deal with the reality that you will lose everything in combat many times. This creates excitement and the 'deflation' that our server experiences relative to other servers.

    ----

    An aside: I do miss the hidden base aspect though. I miss knowing where my enemies territory was, but not their base. People used to be extremely territorial on this server - hunting one another if their base was merely approached. People would constantly do 360s and keep an eye out for approaching enemies. There was more sneak mode involved. Hopefully notch kills this cheating issue and we can return to the raw wildness that began this server.

    Okay we now have a veritable army of moderators, with varying powers. I will come back and 'fine tune' the list over time, but for now most have /ban. Eventually I hope to have a large number of people with /kick, and a few with /ban.

    The kickers can keep cheaters at bay until banners come along.
