join if you are looking for a BRAND NEW WORLD to create and enjoy. this isnt a giant bomb themed server but it is for giant bomb members and their friends. theres no age limit, or any crazy restrictive rules like you have to pass a personality test or show that youre mature enough to play here. its for everyone/anyone here. also, feel free to invite any of your friends who are not from giantbomb.
it is a survival server, the difficulty is normal, and its updated to the recent 1.6.2 update. we have an appreciation for minecraft as a 'game'. if you build something, you did it by actually working and using teamwork to gain resources, and that is what makes the creation an accomplishment and adds to the sense of adventure. we treat it as an RPG, so we dont use teleporting or flying or any 'op' abilities like that.
there is one mod currently being used on the server, customized for this experience, "biomes o plenty".. this mod adds a fair amount of new biomes and adds a lot to the feeling of exploring in an infinite virtual realm. it also has some new environmental items and new gems to dig for, and a special 'promised land' realm once you create the magic staff. this is one of the only mods ive been able to find that actually add to the experience of the server .
(im always open to mod suggestions. but keep in mind the balance of minecraft not only as a game but as a virtual immersion experience. when 'atmosmobs' gets updated its going to be put in right away, tweaked of course.)
here are the basic rules:
1. dont grief, steal or mess with people in any way that they would not wish you to (for example dont build right next to someones house without asking, they might have a plan for that area)
2. dont be a jerk, this is an obvious and basic thing and it shouldnt be a problem with giant bomb members
3. try not to do silly environmentally unfriendly things such as placing blocks in the water and destroying the ocean or placing lava in silly places or starting forest fires or things like that. you know the basic minecraft edicate!!
this isnt some kind of official minecraft community server and this is the only place ive opened it up to. so if you would like to join then post your minecraft name and why youre interested in joining, and ill send you the IP in a PM with instructions on how to install the mod and texture pack. very easy installing, and worth it for the next level mine craft experience that is the realms of grignarnia reborne.
for new minecraft players:
the files to play on the server are here. forge, MCpatcher, the texture pack, and the mods. the readme should make it easy to install , if not check the internet links which are inside the zip as well. when you are ready to get white listed post here or send a PM!
