Server Information

Welcome to GenuineMC!
A Semi-Vanilla Minecraft server
Established: July 8th, 2013

Who are we?
GenuineMC is a Semi-Vanilla Minecraft server that is run by an amazing community! We have attracted individuals of various ages and nationalities who have all found themselves at home on our server. Their voices have helped shape our community and have helped us prosper for 11 years as a Java Minecraft Community. Their voices have allowed GenuineMC to become what it is today!

As a team, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for new and current players. We also strive to meet the needs of every player, as well as listen to their personal comments about our community. We utilize their (constructive) input to expand and improve upon the overall playing experience for our users. This forward-thinking approach has resulted in the member base that has extended across the entirety of our server's timeline, from both past and present, and will hopefully continue to do so in the future.

What is Semi-Vanilla?
Semi-Vanilla is essentially Minecraft, but with heightened aesthetics. We utilize plugins and datapacks that either add special effects or help improve previously existing mechanics. However, these additions don’t take away from the genuine Minecraft experience. That means you can join our server and utilize none of our plugins or datapacks, while still having a fun and wholesome experience playing the game.

In terms of plugins, we have administrative ones that help us run our server like Essentials and Grief Prevention. We also have ones for our players that add to the game like custom chats and cosmetic effects. In terms of datapacks, we create our own to help improve our world, such as a datapack that runs various functions at our Spawn. We also have unique datapacks, such as elytra armor, that allow our players to merge their chestplate and elytra on an anvil. So, when you do decide to join our Minecraft world, you can choose what plugins and datapacks you utilize! It’s all up to you on how you want to play the game!

So, what are you waiting for?! Come build with us at, a real genuine Minecraft Community! Or come meet us on our Discord Community at!
