As you should have read above, I am looking for a small survival/SMP server. Preferably just a vanilla server with a friendly community. If anyone does have some suggestions, please reply to the thread
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hello 1C3, the server I have in mind is called the Atlas Project. Now it's a multiplayer server with a small playerbase at the moment, however it isn't a vanilla server, but it does pride itself on its custom terrain, its lore, its different crafting systems, and also a playerbase that likes to get people involved. If you want more information regarding that, then go to this forum thread. Has our contact information too.
Although not fully vanilla, I run a small server called RagnaBlock with a focus on SMP with non-game-breaking plugins sot he challenge remians. It features a spawn nation where you can follow quests to purchase ranks and open new parts of the server. It is very quiet now because I'm just one guy and the serve rjust opened recently to the public, so it may be too quiet for your tastes, but I hope you'll give it a try!
