100% legit survival, NO donation perks, NO admin shops, NO warps/homes/tpa etc, NO resets, NO currrency, NO lobby, NO bullshit. Real Minecraft, zero calories.
The Server and its map is quite old (est. 2015) and has been around for many years and versions. For the first 2 years it was private and only later was opened for the public. (DISCLAIMER: The server is 18+! Don't join if you are not 18+)
The basic idea was to always keep the server online, on the same map. And to always keep it as vanilla as its reasonably possible. There are only a few minor changes to the vanilla gameplay. A plugin which allows you to protect your builds, one that skips night when 50% of players are asleep, and lastly one that allows you to set up** villager-like trade signs**. There are no other changes to the gameplay meta of vanilla survival.
That means: NO teleportations like /tpa /home /back or warps of any kind are available. The same goes for any RPG like plugin like mcmmo. Neither do we have towny or any digital currency (players trade items and diamonds are the default). Also no silktouching spawners, or kits, or anything like it. It is called hermitcraft-like for a reason.
Futhermore there are only 2 Player ranks NEW and PLAYER if oyu can even call them that. You do not get any perks from being upgraded to PLAYER, its just to let people know that you are a regular player and not new to the server (duh). If you choose to donate to the server, it is greatly appreciated, but there are no ingame advantageshere either. Your chat badge (letter before your name) will become gold and you will be added to the donator wall. Thats it regardless of how much you donate or how long. The badge stays even if you stop donating. The whole economy is playerbased that means everything was farmed in survival even what you see at spawn. There are no admin shops. Every block was placed/obtained in survival.
