    4 What time zone/part of the world are you from? EST

    5. Are you going to school (and what type) or are you working (what's your job)? I am a sophomore in highschool as of today. (5/24) I currently do not have a job. I have had trouble finding anywhere to work at the age of 14, but I am hoping I will be able to get a job once I turn 15 during the summer.

    6 Have you been banned from a server before(won't affect your chances, so just be honest)? No, I have not been.

    7 A little about your life: Like I said earlier, I just finally finished my freshman year of highschool. I'm very excited for my sophomore year because I was able to choose classes that related to health science, which is what I want my career to be in. My big dream is to be a surgeon. I've done the math and it will require a ton of school, but it interests me like nothing else does. Anatomy of organisms, especially the human body, is truly a fascinating world to me. Aside from that, one of my biggest passions is my saxophone. I only own an alto, but I can play tenor and baritone at least at a mediocre level. I've been playing the saxophone since 6th grade, starting off on alto, then tenor the next year, bari the next, and I've settled back into alto this year. From this passion stems what I'd consider to be my second greatest passion - marching band. Even though it requires hundreds of hours of work in uncomfortable heat, and eventually cold, it is all one hundred percent worth it. It's such an amazing experience, and I struggle to put it into words. It is definitely one of the biggest parts of my life. Just behind marching band comes reading and then video games. Reading is one of my all-time favorite pastimes. Reading a good book for a couple of hours a day is pure heaven. Speaking of good books, my favorite book is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If I could suggest one book to anybody, that would be it. Video games are also a great pastime. After all, that's why I'm here. I tend to play more casual games for the relaxing aspect, but I love a good competition every once in a while. (Sorry I let this run so long. I got a little carried away. Hope you don't mind :))
    8 What’s your experience with Minecraft? (when did you start, how long have you been playing?) I first began playing in 2013, but I had been watching videos on Minecraft before that. Every morning before school I would get up early just to watch Etho's Let's Play series. With each and every video I watched, my desire to play the game grew until one day I finally bought the game. I played the game steadily until about a year ago when I took about a half of a year-long break. Ever since I returned to the game, I've been playing just about daily.


    9: What are some great things that you've built, What would you say you're best at? Redstone? big buildings? etc.? I am by no means a great builder. I still enjoy building, but I'm not the fastest and I'm definitely not the best at it. I would say that I understand moderately. I'm no Etho or Mumbo, but I know my way around. I'm doing my best to get better, though, with both building and redstone. I think I'm a lot better at exploring and mining/caving. I enjoy all of these things, though.

    10 How often will you play? Are you daily? once a week? and for how long? I will be on the server daily for at least an hour or so each day. Now that I'm on summer break I have lots of free time. Closer to the fall I will be a bit less active, though, because marching band will take up a lot of my time.

    11 If you have a YouTube channel, please post its info here(how often do you upload, subs, etc. etc.) I do not have a YouTube channel


    12 Past experience on other vanilla servers? I have played on several other SMPs before, varying from pure vanilla to modpacks. All of the servers I have played on before have all shut down, unfortunately, with reasons varying from griefers taking over to the owner just quitting and not paying for the server anymore.


    13 What is your favorite block? My favorite block has got to be the slime block. It can be used in so many ways like storing mass quantities of slimeballs, for decoration, or taking advantage to its bounciness. It also happens to go with my favorite mob - the slime.

    14: Anything/extra information? Feel free to post pictures of your past builds here! Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of anything impressive I have built. I would typically just build on the SMPs I joined, and for the most part, they all went down before I finished any big project. Other than that, nope! Thanks for reading my application! I hope to see you on the server!


    Hello Aux,
    I'll probably reach out to you tomorrow or Saturday to set up the interview, and if all goes well, a brief tour of the server to see if it's what you're looking for.

    Also, to you and others: I'm currently reviewing/trimming down the map in preparation for updating to 1.13. Essentially, any region files not yet developed will be regenerated for mesas, oceans, etc. It'll be like a server wipe, but keeping spawn and legacy builds/farms intact.

    7 A little about your life: I don't do too much day to day, mostly studying or on the computer. But I do like playing the double bass, and I love swimming! I hope I eventually get more time to swim, and maybe learn some more instruments like the cello or piano. I also have the cutest golden retriever!

    8 What’s your experience with Minecraft? (when did you start, how long have you been playing?) I got started around 1.4.7 because of the popularity it had back then but eventually quit after about a year. I started up again about a year ago, and it's been pretty enjoyable so far.


    9: what are some great stuff that you've built, What would you say you're best at? Redstone? big buildings? etc.? I used to go on a creative server, and I was known for building large teleporter hubs for easy travel. Now though, I have no idea what I'm doing most of the time! I hope to get better at building, and maybe redstone as well. I've always wanted to build a large house in the trees or mountains, maybe underground, and fill it with redstone contraptions.

    10 How often will you play? Are you daily? once a week? and for how long? I should be able to play around three to five hours per week, maybe more. My schedule is very dependent on the amount of schoolwork I have, so it varies a lot.

    11 If you have a YouTube channel, please post it's info here.(how often do you upload, subs, etc. etc.) I do not have a YouTube channel


    12 Past experience on other vanilla servers? I've been on a couple of other servers before, all but one died because of inactivity, unfortunately.

    13 What is your favorite block? Mossy brick. I don't know, something about it makes me think I just have to put it here!

    14: Anything/extra information? Feel free to post pictures of your past builds here! I'm currently terrible at most aspects of Minecraft, but I'm doing my best to learn. If that was a prerequisite, sorry I failed haha. I like to think I used to be a lot better back when I first joined back in 1.4.7, but that might be a lie. It's a shame, the creative server I was on did not have a save file, and I lost contact with my friends who were on it. I had such great builds (I think), and it's a bit sad that I have no record of them.


    Hello there, Secret
    I'll PM with the name of the Skype account that will send a contact request. Hopefully we'll be able to set up an interview/server tour this week-end.

    To others...
    Yup; I'll be monitoring this week-end. With a couple pending return for 1.13, were probably only looking for a couple more players; so get your apps in. Probably won't recruit again until 1.13 settles down.

    posted a message on Guardian Farm troubles?

    As for render distance; we're talking about the server's view distance; not the player client render distance. I think Realms default to 10, but can be managed; and if set lower than 10 will cause spawning issues very similar to what you've described.


    Curious, but possible scenario.... Did you spawnproof/slab the slime chunks near your afk spot? Lighting won't stop slimes from spawning, and if they spawn and enter an area between 24-36 blocks from your afk spot (out of ear shot, but in the 'no-despawn' range), they can accumulate and max out the mob cap. Of course, leaving the area by foot/flight by > 128 blocks and coming back would typically cause any such mobs to despawn.

    posted a message on Quick Question About Spawner Farm Before I get Too Far Along . . .

    Just make the kill floor out of magma blocks and use a hopper minecart to collect the drops. You wouldn't even need a long drop, although that will speed up the process. That's how the collection system in my darkroom spawner works (45 block fall onto magma blocks, which insta-kills everything except the occasional skele or zombie that spawns with feather falling boots and endermen that teleport down, and those burn to death pretty quickly on the magma).


    So if you have the room, do the recommended 24 block fall onto magma blocks.


    Another option would be to raise the zombies up and then drop them further (104 blocks). Not sure how you'd feel about the aesthetics, but it might be fun to have a glass tube carrying the zombies up through some area of the castle before dropping them to their death. Iron bars could be used instead of glass for a different look.


    up-voted for beating me to the punch.

    posted a message on Making mob elevators for undead mobs in the recent snapshots for the upcoming update aquatic

    Can you not push mobs up stairs (not waterlogged) with flowing water? Any mob more than 1 block high should at least be pushed by the current, whether they 'sink' or not. wouldn't be an 'up/down' elevator, but still elevation.

    4 What time zone/part of the world are you from? PZT / USA

    5. Are you going to school (and what type) or are you working (what's your job)? Highschool / Currently Unemployed

    6 Have you been banned on a server before(wont effect your chances, so just be honest)? Yes, unjustly

    7 A little about your life: Pretty average, nothing too special. Wake up, go to school, come back home, eat some lunch, work on some homework, go to sleep. Repeat.

    8 What’s your experience with Minecraft? (when did you start, how long have you been playing?) I started playing back in May 2014 after watching the trailer on Mojang.com. During my first 3 years, I only played on big servers with tons of plugins. It was only after I joined my first vanilla SMP (Arelia) that I began to favor smaller servers with strong communities. I've already played on 4 vanilla servers (All of which lost their playerbase), so I guess its time to move on. This server seems like a nice server to spend some time on, and I hope I can get accepted.

    9: What are some great stuff that you've built, What would you say you're best at? Redstone? big buildings? etc.? I usually like to build my bases in the side of mountain ranges, so I guess I'm good at adapting in difficult biomes. I'm not a huge fan of Redstone, but I still like to incorporate some fancy tech in my builds. I've never really started a huge project before, mainly because the lack of people to help me.

    10 How often will you play? Are you daily? once a week? and for how long? I will probably play daily for 1-3 hours at most. On the weekends, I may be on for a little longer.

    11 If you have a YouTube channel, please post it's info here.(how often do you upload, subs, etc. etc.) N/A

    12 Past experience on other vanilla servers? Pretty positive, I usually try my best to have some sort of role in the community

    13 What is your favorite block? Mossy Cobble Brick* :)

    14: Anything/extra information? Feel free to post pictures of your past builds here! How much people are on daily? The last four servers I've been on had dwindling playerbases, so I hope this server has a strong community


    Hello Electronetic,
    I would like to go ahead and have a brief skype call to review your app and see if Kindred is a good match. As mentioned in the app into of this thread; we're not a big-name mainstream type server with the goal of becoming something reputable. Rather it's more of a private 'multiplayer' server for like-minded minecrafters. Our community did get to about ~20 players/week, with peak times having 8-10 players, but that was several years ago; and was the result of a heavy round of applications/interviews to weed out the ones that weren't a good fit. Our 'nominal' goal is to have 4-5 people on regularly during peak times, if that, Even though the server's hardware specs support up to 100 players, the resources are actually meant to accommodate the OP nature of some of the farms, and the perm-loading ray, etc.,

    In other words, our community isn't "dwindling" to a small number, or smaller; we just don't try to 'grow' it to unsustainable numbers; hence the very selective application process, long history of apps, but still decidedly low active player count.

    Noting Kristof won't be able to join us for a couple weeks, we do still have room for a couple more. Just keep in mind; we're not a big server, and don't intend to be. But we DO do BIG builds. ;)

    Hey Killr can I come back to the Sever.


    Its Fantasticraidz or SurfingPenguin


    Heya. To be fair; it's been more than a year since you were referred, and I don't think you ever actually submitted an app. As I actually use this thread for reference, if you wouldn't mind; go ahead and do that, and send me a PM with your Skype handle in case I've already removed you from my contacts (my skype got jacked a month ago, so I cleaned up my contacts quite a bit).

    posted a message on Mob spawn rate?

    The OP appears to be referring to a darkroom spawner (natural spawn chamber), not an actual 'mob spawner' (cage with spinning mob inside when active).


    The cap is typically 70 aggressive mobs when only one player is in the world. See this link for more details:

    How fast it fills up depends on the number of spawn tiles (surface where a mob can spawn).

    Noting you were on console, Is it possible you two were then using the early edition and were in the welcome/demo world? I seem to recall my first world as having some structures that, as I recall them now, aren't current world-gen. Or am I just remembering dreams of minecraft?


    Edit: come to think of it, I don't think there were guardians in the early PS3 version...

    It's like reboo


    It is like rebooting a region? Can I do that withouth corrupting the world?

    "Like rebooting a region?" Pretty much, yes. But I honestly can't answer that question of corruption.... perhaps we should start/find a thread that focues specifically on 'trimming down' pre-update worlds in preparation for new terrain generation. I'm pretty sure there is at least one or two dependent processes/files that should also be reviewed/updated along with the deletion of regions where re-generation is desired (to ensure structures generate correctly in the re-gen chunks and elsewhere while not corrupting already-present structures 'not' deleted (Like Guardian Temples' mob spawn area, which is governed by the 'Monument.dat' file.

    New post to say I'm still trying to find a friendly, stable server that is Vanilla 1.12 possibly going to 1.13.



    • Minecraft Username: GypsyIpsum
    • Platform you play on (PC/XBox/Etc.): PC Java
    • Age: 32
    • Gender: Female
    • Country/Timezone: US Eastern
    • How someone should contact you: Discord as GypsyIpsum#5962
    • How long you've been playing Minecraft: Since maybe 2010 but very casual up to 1.8, lots of new things to learn with 1.12!
    • Some things that you like to do on the game: mainly explore, getting into builds a bit after watching Grian's tutorials
    • Any additional things you want to say: I like to build/play casual survival with a good bunch of people. Once more, Vanilla servers only. If I get one more ad for a vanilla world that's actually not and is modded to craziness, I'm going to go nuts! lol

    PS: If you see this and already sent me an invite to my inbox here on the forums, I can't see them 'cause an admin here told me the message system is broken.


    Hey Gypsy; KP from Kindred here. when/how long ago was the message system broken? I seem to be able to 'send'; sent an update to the convo we had going.
