Does any of our requirement fit you? I've been playing the game since Beta 1.4_01 and have been playing modded ever since Tekkit Classic came around. Since then I've played dozens of modpacks and have still found myself coming back to Minecraft ever since. I mostly focus on making things function first, then making then look good later.
What made you apply and Why us? I like the small community focus as well as the survival island part. It's unique compared to other servers which have hundreds of players playing on a single server.
What are your favorite aspects of the game? Personally my favorite aspect of the game is how creative it allows people to be. Both mods and vanilla allows players to be extremely creative and create complex contraptions or just amazing looking builds. I also love the multiplayer aspect which has grown around the game.
A little about yourself: I mostly play multiplayer due to wanting to play the game primarily with other people, as I find singleplayer boring. I also enjoy smaller servers because I feel like you get to know each other more than with a larger server. I've also taught myself how to make Minecraft mods, and I create them in my spare time. I've slowed down with creating mods, however, as I've wanted to focus more on actually playing the game lately.
