Changed Game Mechanics
- Ender Pearl usage has a 15 seconds cooldown
You must wait 15 seconds between throwing another Ender Pearl.
- Explosions are disabled.
TNT and Creeper explosions will damage players and mobs but not blocks.
- Fire won’t spread
This means you can safely craft a fireplace in your wooden house and that you don’t need to fear wildfires.
- Compasses always point north
In vanilla Minecraft the compasses points to the world spawn point or your home bed. Since our goal is survival realism we made the compass point north at all times.
- Endermen won’t move blocks
They will neither pick up nor place anything.
- Some blocks are dropped instead of destroyed
If you destroy a glowstone, bookshelf, dead bush or spiderweb on this server the block itself will drop as opposed to the default Minecraft behavior.
- Armor won’t drop on death.
Have no fear of losing your most precious equipment in the heat of battle. Any items equipped in your armor slots stay on death!
