Hey, I recommend you try Mineyc Survival. We have a friendly community and try to keep gameplay as vanilla as possible whilst still adding some extra little features to keep gameplay interesting.
We will also have a completely vanilla greylisted server soon so you can stay tuned on our website.
Here's the info for our survival server:
I have a private server that I'm just getting started. It's Vanilla Minecraft (survival) and I'm only looking for 10-15 people to build a large town, (item trading) shops, and neighborhood where you can build your own house. Your can pretty much build whatever you want. I want people that want to help each other out, where we dont need to hide our stuff. There will be chest protection regardless. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you the IP.
Well Trip I have a good server for you. My server, Lunaverse, averages between 5-25 players and has a really friendly community. We have a survival world, a creative world, and an events world where you and your friends can play minigames or join in on admin run events.We also use Teamspeak as a easier alternative to skype and we would love to see you join! Please feel free to message me with any more questions you might have!
Server IP: play.luna-network.com
Teamspeak IP: voice.lunaverse.eu:13347
