Minecraft Badlands offers a multiplayer Minecraft experience that is second to none! Unlike many of the others you will encounter, we have withstood the test of time. The Badlands's second birthday is fast approaching!. What does this mean? Well, we have been up and running for almost two years and we still have a large number of our original players on the server on a daily basis. Our server is owner by two adults who run it in a professional manner. We have players of all ages and from all over the world, so there are always people online. People are constantlytelling us that this server is better run than any other they have been on, and we are very proud of the reputation we have built up over the past year.
At its core, the Badlands is a survival server. We have a creative world too, but access is limited to our VIP players who have donated at least $5 USD to help pay the server bills. Of course we have the Nether and the End worlds which players can access any time by building the appropriate portals. We also offer some special worlds such as the Skylands (open to all players that choose to pay the small entry fee using in-game currency) and the Dreamlands, a unique world featuring interesting custom terrain.
We are a very progressive server. We are always looking for fun, unique things we can do to stand out from the thousands of other servers out there. Instead of running the same laggy old Bukkit as most servers we run Spigot, a customized version of the Bukkit code. This helps us to ensure a zero-lag experience for our players while also fending off the most common drains on server performance.
We've got some cool custom plugins on our server that you won't find anyplace else. Most notable is our custom PVP plugin. If you like pvp, turn on pvp mode and enjoy a battle that you know the other guy can't run away from (commands like /home or /spawn don't work in pvp mode, and turning off pvp requires a 30 second wait.) If PVP isn't your thing, just leave it turned off and nobody will be able to bug you. We have also been in touch with other well known plugin developers who have expressed interest in writing custom versions of popular plugins for our server, which will be released soon.
We also have a robust custom economy in place on the server. We don't use the same old system as everybody else. Our economy operates on the Gold Standard. We have painstakingly developed an advanced economic system based on gold.
There's a reason people have been playing here for almost two years. If you sign up to play here, you won't regret it. In fact, you'll probably end up being one of the people that's here when ANOTHER year has gone by. This server is truly second to none, and we hope you come join us and find out just why that is.
I love playing on this server. The community is really friendly. There are usually large projects that you can be a part of or you can start your own and find help quickly. The staff are very helpful and the owners are always trying to make the server fun and exciting. = )
