Server Information

We have two different game modes, please, make sure you pick the one you are most interested in upon joining

About our vanilla server
We are a Minecraft survival multiplayer server (SMP). Here you'll find multiple game modes, including our fully vanilla game mode, the original vanilla game mode we all know and love, the way Minecraft was intended to be played. We also have a separate economy gamemode, you can learn more about it below.

On this vanilla server you'll be able to enjoy Minecraft without any modifications, without money, without any extra commands. We event left the chat untouched! We can safely claim that you won't find any other Minecraft server more vanilla than ours. The reason behind that is simple  — vanilla servers are economically non-viable, unless you have a decent, sustained amount of support from the community. Thankfully, we do have that support, thanks to being the greatest, best vanilla server for the 1.21 Minecraft version.

You can not claim any builds here, and we consider ourselves a competitive server, but you'll find plenty of people who will help you get started, there are also pretty chill players. Just watch out and don't build too close to spawn, people won't grief your builds unless they have a good competitive reason to do so. We are not 2b2t, so griefing for the sake of destroying is not allowed. You'll have fun playing this game mode, getting to know new amazing people, create your little town or base, and just enjoying the game as you used to do when you created that server using hamachi when you were 9 🥲. Join and you'll see it for yourself.

How do I join the vanilla server?
Simply (😉) join the server and click on the game mode without any listed features other than the base game. It will probably be represented with a stone pickaxe.

How do you keep the server online?
We have our own hosting service, and a separate economy game mode which we can easily monetize. We also receive donations from dedicated players wanting to give back to the community.

Can I teleport to players?
No, you can't teleport to players, this is a vanilla server!

Can I get vote rewards or ranks?
Once again, no, this is a vanilla server, you should check out our economy server if you are interested in that 😜

About our survival economy server
In order to guarantee a lag-free experience, good game play, perfect ping and make our server viable, we also have another game mode, our economy sever. Note this server is completely individual from our vanilla server, so you won't find any economy-related features on the vanilla realm. Thanks to our years of expertise, we know how to create the best survival server for Minecraft 1.21. We can claim that thanks to our completely unique economy system. Here, you'll be delighted with money appearing when breaking ores, chopping down trees, harvesting crops, and more! They even make a satisfying "Kaching!" sound when you get them 🥹, beautiful.

Here, you can claim your builds and safely play with friends without having the risk of any strangers breaking into your precious house. You can even monetize your claims by creating a public warp, players will be able to pay in order to unlock the warp. This is amazing for players trying create XP farms and making them public while also getting something in return!

You can also create your own shops here. It is really fun to create design it yourself. You'll get notifications when people are looking at it, and you can make great friends by participating in the economy of the server. Trading is more than welcome on this server, and you'll find yourself collaborating with other players to make your dream builds come true.

How do I join the economy survival server?
Just join using our play.purevanilla.co IP and select the economy server on the GUI upon joining.

Can I teleport to players?
Yep! You can teleport to players by using the /tpa command

Can I get vote rewards or ranks?
Yes, you can get really balanced rewards by supporting the server, we did a great study regarding these rewards, making sure the gameplay is enjoyable for everyone! We are a fair server!


About server updates and resets
Make sure you are using the latest Minecraft version (1.21 as I'm typing this). The server very much updated. For real, this server is usually the first server among of the thousands listed on this site to update its Minecraft version. We want all players to enjoy releases as soon as they are published, so you won't have to wait more than a day to play them!

We also don't reset out world, unless more players want us to reset it. For example, last time we waited about 3 years to reset our map. We also did reset the nether dimension when the nether update dropped. We are very reasonable with this topic, and we take player legacy very seriously. We follow a democratic process for this, and, chances are, if you don't want the world to be reset, most players won't like the idea either, so your builds, your time, and your grinding is safe on this server, that is just one of the many reasons players trust us 🙂. 

About the community
The players are amazing. That's all we have to say about the players in this server; they are friendly, fun, chill, and competitive when they need to be. You can chat with us on our Discord! We also do some cool events, and do videos featuring player builds.
