Hard Survival server

Videos on this page may be outdated.

Key features

The Survival world resets every 6-9 months. When this happens, you are sent a world download of the current world so you can play it privately if you would like to!

In game, there are commands you can type to get different pieces of information:

/rules - see the Minecraft Server rules

/tutorial - be taken to this website

This world is on hard mode, which means:

  • Keep inventory is turned off, when you die a grave is created.


  • You have access to duels (more information on duels below!)


  • The difficulty is set to “hard”! In Hard mode, hostile mobs will spawn and deal more damage than Normal mode. Mobs can cause you harmful status effects such as Poison or the Wither effect. You can also die of hunger in Hard mode.

Here are some coordinates of key areas

Shopping District Information

The shopping district has had a massive update compared to last season's shopping district, instead of being able to build anywhere, which caused a lot of issues with buildings being too close to other member's builds, we now have "plots", 1 player can have 1 plot in the shopping district.

You can get a plot by asking an admin for one when you see them on the Minecraft server, If the admin has time they will give you a plot, If they don't have the time they will ask you to re-ask next time you see them online.

Once you have your shopping district plot you will be able to customise it to your liking, you will also be able to manage it via the lands menu (the plot is a land area inside of the shopping district land, you will have the admin role inside that plot meaning if you open the land menu, navigate to the areas menu and find your plot name you will then be able to add roles, add members, change permissions and more!) - you can find more information on how areas work below under the Land/Area claiming section.

Inside your plot you can also add tradeshops, these were on the server last season as well, tradeshops allows you to setup a chest with a sign on it, and it allows you to add a safe way for you to trade items for different items with other members. You can create a tradeshop by adding a sign to a chest and adding the following text:

Line 1: [trade]


Once you add that you can then look at the chest, hold the item you want to sell in your hand, and type the command /ts addProduct (number of items) - example: /ts addProduct 20 while holding a diamond. This would mean you will be selling 20 diamonds. (You do not need to add the item name to the end of the command, adding the item to the end of the command sometimes does not work.)


Once you add the product you can then add the cost item (the item members will have to give in exchange for the product, You can do this by holding the item you want in return and typing /ts addCost (number of items) - If you do not have the item you can add the item to the end of the command (/ts addCost 5 Emerald for example.)

Once the trade shop is created you need to put the Product item (in this case 20 diamonds in the chest, and the status of the chest will change from "out of stock" to "in stock", then if a member has the (in this case) 5 Emeralds they can simply right click on the trade shop sign and the emerald will be placed inside of the chest, and the diamonds will be placed inside of the member's inventory.

Chest Protection

Chest Protection

The Chest Protection System

You can easily unlock and lock objects by typing the command /lock or /unlock and then clicking on the object.

Once an object is locked you can hold shift and left click on the object OR type /protect and left click which will bring up the settings menu for that object!

How to add someone to an object?


Using the protection system, you can give individual players access to an object.

In the menu, go into the “Members” section and then click on the green skull that says “Trust player” you can then type in the username you would like to add. From here you can remove member permission or promote them to 'admin', meaning they can also trust other players to this item. Another way to do this is by typing /trust [player] then clicking on the object

How to add a group to an object?

You are able to create groups which you can then add users to. Once that group is added to an object that will give all the users in the group access to use the object. 


If you go to the 'groups' section of the menu you can create a group and give it a name. Then all you have to do is simply left click on the group you would like to add and that will add everyone inside that group to the object.


To remove the group from the object you can hover over the “Edit Group” section in the main object menu and just press the “Q” Key.

There is a lot of customisation for the chest protection system. You can get more in depth information here: The protection system in detail

You can lock a variety of items, including up to 10 pets if you would like to keep them safe :) 

The Grave/ Death System

The grave system

The Grave/ Death System

When you die on the Minecraft server you will get a death message which shows the coordinates where you died. You can load this up again at any time by typing /grave. 

You have 15 minutes to get to your grave once you die, which is 10 minutes longer than the usually time on Minecraft. If you take longer than 15 minutes, the loot will drop and anyone is able to pick it up (if people know this is yours and you are trying to get this, they must give it back)


When you get to your grave, you can click on it to open it and get all of your items back

I died to a bug/ glitch! Can you do anything to help?

​The Minecraft server aims to be as close to normal survival as possible. Therefore, the only time staff members can give you your items back if you don't make it to your grave on time is if there is a bug or glitch.

We also only give items back if there is solid evidence of a bug, lag or a glitch.

This means that when you join our server, we recommend having software that allows you to record things that have happened in the past.


On Xbox, you can make a game capture

On PS4, you can make a game capture


On PC, you can use one of the following:

NVidia GeForce Experience


Windows Game Bar

It is your responsibility to make sure you have the relevant system in place to record your gameplay

Land/ Area claiming

Land/ area claiming

The video aboved may be incorrect.

Some information about lands:

Land claiming is a new system we have added to both easy and hard mode! It uses similar menus to our chest protection menus if you have used those before. Lands can be a bit confusing at first, but becomes quite easy to understand!


When you join the server you will not be able to create your Land or claim Land until you have played on the server for 12 hours. 


Once you have played for 12 hours you will be able to create your Land.


At first, you will be able to claim up to 12 chunks of land, but every hour you play on the server you will be given an extra chunk which you can claim, you will be able to claim a maximum of 150 chunks!


You can create up to 35 ‘Areas’ within your Land. The main Land is counted as the “default” Area. "

If you also have a shopping district plot or are a part of another member's lands with admin access such as claiming, make sure you do /land edit (your land name) to switch to your land.

The main land is the "default" area in the area menu. You cannot delete this area.

If you have land within 1,000 blocks of spawn or the shopping district you are not allowed to ban players from your land. This is due to it causing issues with players using elytra's to fly to spawn/traveling to spawn and being teleported back due to being banned.

Creating your land:

  • After you have played on the server for 12 hours you can create your land by typing the command /land create (your land name)

  • You can claim chunks for your land by typing /claim

  • You can manage your land via the land menu or via commands - you can do /land help to see all land commands and you can type /land to open the land menu.

View Command:

  • /view - this is a very useful command as it will show you where other members and your own Lands are by displaying a green (if it is your Land) or a red (if it is someone else's Land) particle line around the claimed chunks! - you can also use /view help to see more view commands with descriptions for each command such as:

  • /view stay - keeps the border at the height you ran the command at (meaning when you move to a different Y level the border wont follow up with you.

  • /view here - Does the opposite of /view stay, the border will move up and down with you (this is the default option when you do /view)

  • /view disable - this disables the borders


This can be used to help understand how big your Land is, which area belongs to you and which area belongs to others. If you are standing inside someone else’s Land it will display some information about the Land. This tool is also a very useful feature when setting your “Areas”; more information on that later!

Commands (these commands can be controlled via the /land menu aswell (it's recommended to use the menus for easier navigation):


/lands list - This command brings up a menu that lists all the Lands that have been made

/lands invites - This commands opens a menu that displays all the lands you have been invited to join, You can join up to 5 lands (6 including your own land)

/land trust (player) - This will add a player to your Land, - to add a player to a certain Area, add the Area’s name after the members name (/lands trust LewisB1 Area1)

/land setrole (player) default (role name) - This will set a player inside of your land or certain area to a specific role, you can create up to 10 roles in your land. - to set a members role inside a certain area change the "default" to the areas name.

The video aboved may be incorrect.

Area claiming

Areas are like mini Lands (or plots) inside of your Land. You can create up to 35 Areas (the main Land counts as an Area, so you can create 34 extra Areas) in your Land.


You can add certain players to each Area and you can create or add from your land roles (which will include all the members who currently have that land role) you can create or add up to 10 roles per Area.


In each Area you can customize your own settings for Player management, Roles, Natural flags, and Miscellaneous flags, all these basically work the same way stated above in the Land menus.


The "Areas" feature is really useful for lands that want to have villages with different members building houses. We also use the area system for the shopping district, each shopping district plot = 1 area.

Create an Area:

Creating an Area is actually quite easy. First off you need to go into your Land menu using the /land command and then navigate to the Areas section. Then click on the ‘Create Area’ button where you will then be asked to send the name of your area in the chat. (Type the name as a message, not a command.).

You then need to do the command /selection which will then give you a golden hoe (if you take the hoe out of your hand then the selection will cancel and you will have to redo the command!). 

Once you have the golden hoe you can select an area you would like to claim by left-clicking in one corner and right-clicking in the opposite corner. This then creates a "box" which you can then claim by typing /land assign (area name) (Areas are done by blocks, not chunks meaning 1 corner would need to be at the bottom, and the other corner would need to be at the top in the air like a world edit/world guard region). 




Duels is a new system we have in place on the Hard server. This feature will allow 2 players who want to fight to pvp each other in one of our duel arenas! You can send someone a duel request by typing the command /duel (player).


This will then open a “request settings” menu, in this menu you will be able to cancel the request, send the request and pick your arena. We currently have 4 arenas: Nether Dimension, End Dimension, Overworld Dimension and the Sheep Dimension (which is a memory of one of Andy’s live streams)! You can also either pick a kit (we currently only have 2 kits but if you have any kit suggestions just let us know), or decide to use your own inventory (if you use your own inventory neither player will lose inventories if you die, you will just be teleported back to where you send/accepted the duel request with your inventory).


Once you send someone a duel request it will send an duel invitation to the other player, they will be able to accept it or deny it.
