This is the announcement that everyone has been waiting for! What is included in hardcore, and what’s not. How “vanilla” have we gone?
WHAT IS MINECRAFT HARDORE?
Hardcore is incredibly difficult, and can even put the most experienced Minecraft player to the test. So, if you are eager to prove yourself, you need to make sure you are prepared for what Hardcore has in store.
YOU HAVE ONE LIFE.
In Hardcore, you only have one life to your name, and that is it. If you die, you are out until the following season. You won’t even be able to spectate. Therefore, you must keep an eye on your health bar at all times. From drowning and starvation to fall damage and explosions, there are many ways to run out of health fast. All your progress shall be lost, so treat your one life carefully!
The Hardcore World is restricted to Explorer rank, and above. These are community members who have been here for a while, and understand how our community works. You can /rankup to Explorer rank by voting for the server, or can obtain our Gold donator rank from the Store.
NO PERKS OR VANILLA TWEAKS
To ensure everyone has the same Hardcore experience, everyone has the same commands, perks, and start. We have also made the game as close to Vanilla as possible, so have not included any tweaks either! Do you remember how to make an Ender Chest? Some important missing tweaks are below:
– Totems will not work from your inventory
– No custom recipes
– No fast leaf decay
– Creepers make big holes!
COMMANDS – YOU CAN STILL /SIT
To ensure a “vanilla” Hardcore experience, we have removed all the fancy commands. Below is a list of commands, which everyone has:
/pvp – Enable / disable your pvp
/afk – Toggle AFK status
/ping – Show players ping
/trash – Dispose of unwanted items
/seen – View when a player was last seen
/solve – Solves complex equations
/recipe – Check item recipe
/playtime – View players total play time
/playtimetop – Shows top list of player total playtime
/sit – Sit down anywhere
[item] – Shows item you are holding in your hand in chat
Unlike our Survival World, we have made the Hardcore World a lot smaller. This is our way of trying to encourage you to work more closely together. The Overworld, and Nether are 5,000 x 5,000 blocks The End is 10,000 x 10,000 blocks to ensure there is enough materials for everyone!
NO THEFT. NO GRIEF.
It may be a new world, but it doesn’t mean we forget our manners. Just like survival, we will not tolerate grief or theft. Do not take any items from a chest, build, furnace, shulker etc. without the permission of the owner. Do not take anything that does not belong to you! Unless, the chest says “Free Items” or “Community Chest”. Do not modify another players build that does not belong to you.
We understand that everyone plays Hardcore for different reasons. Don’t like to fight? No problem! Toggle your PVP status anytime. When your PVP is disabled, you and your tamed pets are safe. Even when not online!
BUY, SELL AND SHOP YOUR WAY
Want to sell stone in your base? Want to open a shopping mall? Maybe a farm shop? You can! Our Hardcore World economy is run by the community. You decide the pricing, and the currency. Maybe trade emeralds instead? You decide. The price index does not apply to the Hardcore World, but you can use it as a guide for pricing your items.
Take a look at our New Hardcore Guide here.
Not long to wait now! Best of luck to everyone who plays.
