Welcome to the Big Sister Community! The server began as an alternate mirror server (or “sister” server) for Gunia’s Gulliver server circa October 2013. It ran the latest version of the Gulliver Mod for Minecraft v1.6.4 prior to 3rd of July 2017, which was when we decided to make a major decision to update the server to the latest vanilla Minecraft version. Our community is comprised of two servers:
o The stable, builder/survival-centric Big Sister server, which permanently runs the latest stable Spigot version, has a Dynmap at http://bigsister.mcserver.ws:8123/, a special plugin that shares the server chat with our Discord server, and can be accessed with the IP: bigsister.mcserver.ws
o The experimental Little Brother server, which changes mod flavors every month or two, it can be accessed at: littlebrother.mcserver.ws
Being whitelisted for one server automatically allows you to be whitelisted for the other server! If you wish to join us, please head down to the “How to join” section.
About the Server:
The Big Sister Server’s main world has been built up by countless players throughout its years in operation. From the biggest of mansions to the smallest of homes, you can find it all by exploring our vast world. We also have several minigames that players have built up for people to enjoy such as Spleef, Boat Racing, Jousting, and many more. While the main world never resets, there is another world on the server that resets with major world generation updates so that players can play in the latest terrain.
We also have somewhat of an economy on our server with Cheese. Cheese currency comes in three denominations: green cheese (emeralds), cheese (sponge), and blue cheese (lapis blocks). Cheese can be traded to villagers in the spawn mall to buy blocks for building.
We host many events throughout the year on both servers. Many of these celebrate holidays, both from real life and ones that were created on the server. we also host UHC (Ultra HardCore) events occasionally in which players have a chance to fight for prizes.

After some deliberation among the staff team, we have decided to also allow applications to be posted here. Discord will still be a requirement for joining, but if you would like to apply before joining the Discord, then just post your application as a reply to this thread.
Also, we are working on updating to 1.14.1 1.14.2, so the Dynmap and server may be down for a bit once it and Spigot are released.
Update (5/18/19): We have decided to wait for 1.14.2 due to some still glaring issues with the 1.14.1 release, primarily the disappearance of entities.
In light of the decision to keep the Minecraft Forums in operation, we will once again be taking applications on this thread.
Another update on a previous announcement: we are still waiting to update to 1.14 until we fill the time is right in terms of vanilla and spigot stability. We are doing testing of that very thing on the Little Brother Server, and hope to update as soon as possible.
