Hello. Are you a player who loves exploring? Do you generally stay away from creative mode and hate people who cheat? (spawn items, teleport etc.) Come enjoy a stroll through this very old server from 2010. There has been literally ZERO cheating on everything that has been built here, and we have played VANILLA Minecraft 99.9999% of the time. No teleporting, no item spawning nothing. Often when there were bugs (and alpha had many of them at times), we just sucked it up. No cheating to get back what was lost. This server is the REAL DEAL.
A few notes: The spawn area has not been TOUCHED since about December of 2010. Everyone who was a regular branched out. We have bases that are 5k blocks away from spawn. Some people worked on their bases daily for up to 6 months. Other bases are 2 months old, and you will notice many that are just a few weeks.
I encourage you to look through ruins and old bases Fallout style, and just admire them.
PLEASE DO NOT GRIEF. I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS PVP, BUT JUST DON'T GRIEF THE OLD RUINS PLEASE. BUILD YOUR OWN ****. YOU WILL BE BANNED BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE ANY FUN.
A little history if you're interested:
I started this server back in November of 2010 right after the Halloween update. Myself and about 10 other close RL friends began playing on it. After that we had about 20 regular players, all who knew each other in real life and separated by a maximum of 1 degree. That means that I have personally met everyone who has ever played. We had about 12 people who played throughout the career of the server regularly and made some amazing things. There has been literally thousands of hours of time invested, and even though it might at times seems like not much, for an alpha-beta-release survival server much has been accomplished. The server ran for about 1 1/2 years.
Long story short, we had a griefer on the server. Since we ran the server itself vanilla the entire time (without hMod or Bukkit), we had no real way of catching him. I trusted everybody on the server already, otherwise they wouldn't be playing. We had some RL friends with kids, like 10 and 12 who would often play. There was a notorious griefer called "The Wraith" who would strike every now and then and leave signs. He got away with his charade for about 6 months until we finally figured out who it was. It was a 12 year old brother of a friend of mine, who really played it low key. But he was a fulltime griefer pirate who probably stole more diamond and valuables than we actually were able to keep up with. I didn't replace anything that was stolen for the life of the server, because I wanted everything to be like real life. We either find the thief who steals and take it back (thus not enabling his habbit by replacing everything), or you lose. That's just the way it was. Later on we found his secret hideout, and many of his underground tunnels, but we NEVER found where he stashed all his goods. I'm guess thousands of diamonds and other goods. He never used it out in the open, because it would be too obvious. So even now on our current private server there is a legend of The Wraith's treasure, he has probably burried it somewhere on my server, in a secret place.
I am putting this server up temporarily for fun, for some pvp and some exploration and just some general input on what people think.
