So basically, Ratcraft is a hard-mode, semi-vanilla experience with a few unique features that make for some challenging gameplay. Apart from hacking, cheating, spamming, and the like... it's pretty much complete freedom to do whatever your little rat heart desires. We've got no ranks, no essentials, and no unnecessary plugins. Apart from our 3 core features it's pure vanilla! 🙏
Our 3 core features include:
RANDOM SPAWN ✅
When you join for the first time you’ll spawn in a random location in the world. This can be anywhere from +29,999,981 to -29,999,981 x/z. When you die you’ll also respawn in another random location in the world, unless of course you’ve slept in a bed... so you should try and do that as soon as possible!
NO COORDINATES ✅
The debug screen (F3) info is greatly reduced, and your XYZ coordiantes aren’t displayed. Neither you nor anyone else knows where you are. You're also likely many millions of blocks away from the nearest player!
RAT PORTALS ✅
To counteract these difficulties, we've got the incredible power of Rat Portals! Based off SnowGear’s Color Portals, these nifty structures can be built by players and are used to connect one distant location to another. These are one of Ratcraft’s most essential features! They're also the only feasible way to find friends or foes when starting out. Learn how to build them by clicking here.
And that's it, apart from these 3 things it's all vanilla. If you're wondering why these features are so important, take a look at our core philosophies!
Our Core Philosophies
privacy – players don’t have to worry about being found or griefed by others if they stick to their random spawn area. Other players are very likely many millions of blocks away.
lostness – having no coordinates makes people lose their bearing on the world. Players will have to rely on maps, compasses, landmarks, and their sense of direction in order to navigate.
interconnectability – Rat Portals give players the ability to easily interact with others if they so choose, and allow for communities to exist even across great distances.
(^^ is lostness even a real word idk?)
Anyway yeah that's about it...

All in all, we're a small community that's pretty laid-back, silly, and well... whatever we are.The server's been up for 6 months now, and I intend to keep it up until inevitable heat-death of the universe. Also, world resets are completely out of the question and we do encrypted cloud-backups daily, so I wouldn't worry too much about Ratcraft or your progress going anywhere...
We're in this for the long haul 👍
Alright that's all, now here comes the part where I say:
