Welcome to OverCast!

If you are looking for a server with no PvP, no grief, no lag, and a team of amazing and mature staff, you have come to the right place! This server is a small community of players ranging from ages 5 to 55. The majority of players, however, are between the ages of 13 and 15. When you join OverCast, you are greeted by friendly members and welcomed by the online staff, and you become a part of the community.

Our server is set up via MyWorlds. We have two main survival maps that you can play on. The one you will start on is the Resource map. This map is for people who are newer to the server. You are able to demolish terrain in this map, and collect resources. The second map is the SMP+ map, for people ranked knight or higher. This map is mainly for building, and less for destroying terrain. If we see any demolished terrain in SMP+, such as flattened mountains or torn-down forests, we will reset the terrain in that area. If you choose to join us on OverCast, we recommend that you wait on building your most amazing houses until you are a knight. The inventories between the maps are connected, so you can gather resources from the resource map and take them and use them on SMP+! The two maps are pure survival; only sponsors can spawn items, and they can spawn only for themselves. We rely on GriefPrevention to protect our builds from grief, so get a gold shovel, place a chest, and start claiming your builds! We also have McMMO active on the survival maps, so enjoy earning skill levels and climb your way up the McTop Leader Board!

We have other maps in OverCast as well. We hold events on some of these maps, and some maps are only pulled up during events.

Temporary Map

We have a temporary, harder survival map. The map includes losing inventory upon death, creepers exploding, no time-changing or weather-changing commands, and no /back upon death. You will be able to take a select amount of items from the temporary map back to our main Survival map, and the Temporary map will be reset after a week of play.

Build Contest

You can participate in a build contest. You will be given materials to build with, and a theme to follow. We judge contestants at the end of the time slot. Time slots will vary depending on the contest.

Art Gallery

We have a map full of the amazing things our server has built. We have some towns that are a part of our history, and some cool sculptures and amazing projects, ranging from pixel art to the Milan Chapel.

Minigames Map

You may pick a minigame and play it with other server members. There are many spleef arenas, mini golf, PvP arenas, Thread the Needle, and much more!

End Map

We do not keep the End up constantly on OverCast. We do, however, pull it up every now and then for a crusade to the End, where the entire server can take part in slaying the Enderdragon together, and then collect endstone and enderpearls to their hearts’ content.


OverCast offers many various plugins, which we advise you to learn how to use. We may add or remove plugins as needed. We have some plugins that are not listed here, but these are the ones that will be useful to know.

Plugins
  • GriefPrevention
  • McMMO
  • MyWorlds
  • Essentials
  • PermissionsEX
  • Votifier
  • WorldGuard
  • ChatFilter


We at OverCast are looking for mature, fun players. We hope that when you join us at OverCast, you will stay with us for a while. If you are great and building, you'll be great for our server. We are NOT looking for staff, and we do NOT OP people or give people creative.

Additional Notes

We are NOT looking for staff. We are also not affiliated with the OverCast network, and as such, we are NOT a PvP server. We've been around under the name OverCast for 2 years now.

Best server, right here folks. The staff on here all deserves a medal. Some ice cream or something would be appreciated too..... (I prefer vanilla :3)

In all seriousness though, this is a great server. Best community I've ever seen on a minecraft server.

Well its a good server but i wish there was a sign at the end of the maze that made you the next rank instead of an admin having to be on all the time to make the un permed people to get the permissions ive been on for about an hour with no admin on to give me perms but i do like it anyways its overall a good server

unfortunately, I'm not sure we could establish command blocks like that without allowing players to promote themselves infinitely. Plus, the point of admins doing it is that we quiz players on the rules so that we are aware that they know what to do on the server. Thanks for the honest opinion, though!

I apologize for that. I saw on the console but you left before I could say anything. Admins should be on later this evening, or I could take care of it now
