Home to the first-time spawn, Library, and Hub, BSO is the first world on the server. With no damage whatsoever it is perfect for beginners or those looking to freely build without distractions/danger. When in BSO you can vote for the time or weather as you wish.
Created for those looking for a little more adventure and the most vanilla gameplay, Ruin is very similar to BSO except that all damage is on. In addition to the danger of mobs, falling, lava, and drowning players should be warned that fire-spread is on here so be careful when using lava or lighters. Voting for time of day change is disabled.
If you don't know what the Nether is already, we recommend you stay out of this world until you become familiar with the game.
Our fourth world was the first non-typical seed in use on our server. Terra was partly inspired both in name and design by the book “Halo: Contact Harvest” which took place on a planet that was 90%+ farmland. This map is completely flat and contains no ore but instead all dirt with a 1 block coating of grass. With the soft dirt on Terra you and a few friends armed with shovels can easily create an underground tunnel network or complete cities. Or you can use the flat surface to build without any obstructions.
The sun stays up for 10 cycles before attempting a night cycle on Terra. Like BSO, players can vote to control the time. There are no rainstorms in this world. PVP, mobs, and animals are disabled, and fire spread is off.
This world was made with a terrain generator and features large floating islands and oceans with deep caverns to explore. Ores are more common between Y:64 and Y:128 and can some times be seen on the surface. Pandora has nearly the same rules and features as Ruin. The only current difference is the 3:1 day/night ratio vs the 2:1 of Ruin.
Fight against your fellow citizens for the glory!(and item drops). Outside the safe-spawn of PVP world you are free to battle each other. Be warned however that in addition to all damage being on, factions do exist and will happily engage you if you are alone.
Reserved for Gold-Donors only, Creative is a safe from any damage world where players can spawn infinite items. For obvious reasons, this world has a separate inventory from the rest of the server.
Video Tour (slightly outdated, so many new things worthy for the next one)
Stop wasting your time on kid/teen servers that run on their Family PC on slow Family Internet connections with zero backups, restore abilities, or grief protection. Come play where you can actually enjoy yourself on BSO! Minecraft!! game.bsominecraft.com
This server is really great. I joined a few weeks ago and have had the best time ever. You do have to go through a short tutorial but, I've done that on multiple servers where it was really long. So just give our server a try, you won't regret it :]
