About GateCraft

You are currently on the official homepage of the server which chooses different approach to the concept of Minecraft and tries to do from it something more than just mining and building.

Thematical Worlds

Philosophy of the server is built on system of travelling trough gates between various worlds. Every world has own rules and own purpose. Every player starts the game with his first task which is leaving Rogue lands which shows player's skill and determination. After completing this task more worlds awaits such as world with social structure and user-build towns (Kingdom), world created for mining resources (Mining Colony), world full of dungeons and adventure (Inferno/Nether) and if you prefer PvP over PvE, we've got Skyland warzones with fully automated PvP arenas.

Player community

People on servers usually know each other from the text field and they never meet personally. Players haver own cities on this server, where they live and build, but there are also somewhat shared locations - Prime City (spawn place), for instance. The next thing helping with getting players together are the organized PvP games.

The server is meanth to be international. Which means, that some players may want to ignore certain communication channels. This server offers this option - you don't have to read things you don't understand (:

You can stay in touch with the game through our IRC server - that means, you can chat with people in-game with not actually playing. It's useful when you're travelling and want to know what's going on.

The server is guared with a lot of plugins against griefers and we are able to hunt every criminal down. Everyone  discrespecting the rules may expect punishment - ban. Eliminating problematic players is the key for calm and fearless life for everyone, who wants to play fair.

Players themself may use /hawk tool, a useful command able to display for example what has been stealed from your chests and who did it. Victims can find out the thugs alone and report them to the Sheriffs or Agents. They will take it from them. One more thing - not really a written rule, but a common practics is giving some compensation for the damage or loss.
