Hi DrProScream! Finding a Minecraft home is always something!
You are more then welcome to check out UltraCraft. We love to have new members join us.
UltraCraft offers both a towny world - own & build your own town (or city), or join an established town/city - we also have a protected and grief free survival wilderness world that some people like to build homes/bases in. Some people do both & have a wild place & a town place! If you become a town owner, it's your choice what theme or type of town you would like to have. We have quite a few towns & some new ones that are starting up too!
It doesn't take long to make money on our server, so after a little bit of playtime, the option to becoming a town owner is very realistic. Sometimes inactive towns go up for auction as well or if a mayor stepped down. We have one for sure that I know of right now actually.
We also have a separate mining world that resets every 2 months (along with the end & nether) for all resource collecting.
We just installed Skyblock this week so we are getting that up & going as well. Lots to do on our server!
Also, we have McMmo, with weekly skilling events, a server mob grinder area and much more. We have some towns that are all working hard on installing grinding farms for McMMo woodcutting & herbalism. We do have a mob arena park, parkour & some other events. If the demand is there for more, we are more then glad to add more things to our server!
Feel free to come check us out!
If we aren't what you are looking for, thank you for even checking us out. Best of luck in your search!
My server has a ultra hard gamemode with things like cave-ins and extra hard enemies, but it also has towny in the same gamemode, which lets you create your own towns and invite people to them! The ip is mineblock.serv.nu and I hope you'll join!
