It’s great and very suitable for medieval fantasy.

Are you Human? Elf? Dwarf? Define your unique strength and weakness using our custom plugin, MassiveTraits.

A good skin improves the role playing experience for everyone.
- Read the rules
Knowing the rules is a good idea even though they mostly are common sense.

The gameplay is quite faction centric. You should really join one. It’s fun.

What is your profession? What is your characters goal in life?
Changed Game Mechanics
- All armor types have the durability of diamond x3
Leather, Iron, Gold and Diamond armor all have the same durability and that durability is three times as high as standard diamond armor durability. This way PVP battles last longer and becomes more exciting.
- Players and mobs sometimes drop their head on death
A Premium player has a 10% chance to decapitate a player, in which case that player’s head will be dropped (1% chance for mobs).
- 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 animals 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.
MassiveChat is one of our many custom plugins designed exclusively for MassiveCraft. This plugin provides feature rich chat channels, a private message system and mailing system. It also has an emotion system that produces sound and particle effects when you want to express yourself in an immersive way. Ever find yourself in a large battle and want to tell enemies from friends? You can change the player name colors to help you do just that. These are only a few of the awesome things this plugin can do. Read below to learn more about the available commands.
There are in-game commands that control every aspect of your player and world.
We at MassiveCraft are the main developers of the plugin Factions. This plugin allows our players to create factions/guilds. The factions can claim territory that will be protected from non-members. Factions can forge alliances and declare themselves enemies with others.
You can lock chests, doors, and other valuable blocks using LWC.
You can trade with other players or purchase goods from chest shops using our in-game currency. Why not open your own store and get rich?
Backpack & Workbench
Premium members can reach their huge backpack (54 slots of extra inventory) and portable workbench at any time using the commands /bp and /wb.
Keep Items and XP on Death
Premium members keep items and xp on death under certain circumstances. Backpack, armor and xp level is always kept on death. Inventory items and xp progress towards next level is also kept unless you attacked someone within 30 seconds of your death.
All standard recipes work on MassiveCraft, however we added in a few custom recipes that work on MassiveCraft only.
More Player Models
MassiveCraft supports the client side Mod called “More Player Models”.
With just a few fences and some redstone dust, you can turn this nice-looking gate into a fully-working porcullis!
TeamSpeak Voice Chat
We use the latest version of TeamSpeak for voice chat on this server. Many players use this application for many purposes such as coordinating faction activities, meeting new friends and more! Voice makes a big difference when exploring new continents.
