Hi there! You have just discovered Vanilla Essence.

Just give me the IP: ve-mc.com

Introduction


My name is Thanos (also known as Biskotaki in-game) and I launched this server back on May 2017. I am studying computer science in college and I feel Minecraft is a great way to practice on my programming skills. I have been hosting Minecraft servers for a while.

Vanilla Essence is a semi-vanilla server that offers a unique Minecraft survival experience. It's a place where you can peacefully work on the projects you had in mind and never had a chance to start. You can get on with friends, make a claim to protect your resources and get straight into work.

Unlike most servers, Vanilla Essence is not following the pay-to-win scheme. All donations come with rewards that are entirely cosmetic and have no impact on gameplay. You will not see OP guys running around with premium, overpowered kits and equipment.

There's a twist. The standard survival experience that Minecraft offers usually gets boring after a while, so I decided to step up the game a little bit. I have programmed a custom plugin using Spigot that adds a whole bunch of new unique and exciting features into the game. You'll see me talking about loot chests, events, iron coins and player shops in a bit.

Vanilla Essence has a small but dedicated team of three Moderators which ensure that the server is always in one piece and nothing "extreme" is taking place. We truly hope that this is the right place for you and your friends.

Details


The current map is 20,000 by 20,000 (trust me, it's big enough), nether and the end are both accessible.

PVP: Anywhere, Mobs: On, Explosions: Off, Fire spread: Off

Vanilla Essence aims to use minimal plugins yet offer powerful and intriguing features.

Plugins:

  • Vanilla Essence: Our custom plugin which offers most of the core features on the server.
  • Advanced Ban: This is our main plugin to punish all the rule breakers.
  • Core Protect: The standard block history plugins out there to keep track of grieferes and trouble makers.
  • Grief Prevention: One of the best plugins for player claims, you can protect your chests, make plots, manage land permissions or even build towns.
  • Votifier: We use this plugin to get notified every time a player votes for our server so we deliver the appropriate rewards :).
  • WorldEdit & WorldGuard: We use those plugins to setup protected regions and plots, nothing special.
  • Buycraft: This plugin makes sure that all donation rewards are delivered on time. Basically connects our shop with the server.

Custom Features

This section aims to answer this question: What's different from standard vanilla servers?

Loot Chests

Loot chests are normal chests that contain valuable treasure. Every time you mine a solid non-flammable block, there is a chance of a loot chest being dropped. There are three tiers of loot chests: common, rare and legendary. As you've probably guessed, rare loot chests contain better rewards than common loot chests, and the same applies for legendary loot chests. These mysterious chests can give you an extra incentive to go mining.

Events

Every hour you will notice an event is undergoing. Events are special challenges that come with great rewards. You can participate and try to win the objectives of each event. Winners are rewarded with the most powerful loot chests on the game, an event loot chest. Event loot chests contain a fair amount of iron coins and enchanted diamond equipment (tool, weapon or armor).

Coins and Trades

As you probably read in the previous section, there are two types of currencies in the game: iron and gold coins. Iron coins can be acquired by winning events or trading with other players. You can use iron coins to purchase top of the tier items from a villager market at spawn, where each villager has a set of custom trades. Most villagers accept gold coins, where one gold coin is a stack of iron coins (64 iron coins -> 1 gold coin). You can get your hands on some really cool items such as: special pickaxes (ex. break mob spawners), enchanted diamond armor, mob spawn eggs, end-game items and more.

Player shops

We recently added a shops world where each player can purchase a plot with coins and build their own shop (literally). That means, once you have a plot to work on, you are able to sell resources, tools, weapons, anything. The prices can range from ores (coal, iron, gold, diamond, emerald) to coins (iron and gold). Our custom chest-sign system is greatly simplified to make the shop setup less frustrating and enjoyable. Buying from other shops is as simple as opening a chest and clicking on the item you'd like to purchase.

Statistics

All players have a custom /stats menu that keeps track of their progress in the server. For example, one can find the total amount of loot chests opened. This menu also keeps track of deaths, kills and even a death/kill ratio. It can further be customized with a custom description and likes (yes, literally!). A custom description can be set with /description <text> and players can "like" someone by clicking on the emerald of their respective /stats <player> menu. There are certainly a lot of details here, but you'll be able to have a better grasp of those features in-game!

Leaderboards

In order to promote some competition in-game, we have placed leaderboards (armor stands with text basically) at spawn that keep track of the top three players with the highest count for each statistic. Furthermore, milestones such as "100 total loot chests opened" are announced in chat.

Vote rewards

Vote rewards can certain help if you don't have many resources to start with. Those who /vote for the first time are rewarded with a basic Starter Kit and by continuing to vote daily, just like loot chests, several resources are given. Voting is very important because it can help by boost our rankings in the server listing websites (higher rank => more players).

Battle Mode (in development)

Battle mode is a unique mode evolved around the combat aspect of the game. For the PVP fans, this mode is going to get players into arenas and setup fights with a huge variety of kits. Leveling system, experience, unlockable kits, coin rewards are all included. Stay tuned!

Rules

We have compiled a simple set of rules that all players must follow. This is essential so we can maintain peace and order on the server. We have done our best to maintain simple and reasonable rules.
  • Be friendly, promote a positive attitude and always be respectful.
  • Do not repeatedly send messages in chat.
  • Do not advertise other websites or servers.
  • Do not accuse others of hacking without evidence.
  • Do not use alt accounts for your own advantage.
  • Do not use offensive or inappropriate skins.
  • Do not use glitches and exploits to your advantage.
  • Do not use hacked clients or xray resource packs.

Staff

  • Biskotaki: Owner and main server administration
  • Passionate_Rhino: Administrator (Staff Managment)
  • GhostMonkee: Administrator (Community Management)
  • BirdOfLight: Moderation
  • akaOtter: Moderation
  • beerye3: Moderation

What's next?

We are really looking forward into meeting you in-game! We hope you spend some quality and enjoyable time on the server. Here's what you can do next:

Starting from today, the claim block limit has been raised to 20,000 blocks.

If you have already reached 10,000 claim blocks, you will continue to acquire 100 claim blocks per hour until you reach the new limit.

Shop Update!

Greetings minecrafters,
We have added a brand new shop world to Vanilla Essence, in which you are now able to purchase a plot and build your own shop.

Plots have different prestige depending on how close to spawn they are.
Red plots cost 5 Gold Coins and are very close to spawn.
Orange plots cost 3 Gold Coins.
Yellow plots cost 2 Gold Coins.
White plots cost only 1 Gold Coin but are far away from spawn.

Once you find a suitable plot, right-click the sign while holding Gold Coins to buy it.

Commands you can use:
/shop - Teleport to a player's shop
/shop - Teleport to your own shop
/shops - Teleport to the shop world spawn location
/abandonshop - While looking at the shop ownership sign for confirmation, type that to abandon your shop

To sell items inside your shop, put a sign in a chest with the following format:
--------------
[Cost]
(empty line)

(empty line)
--------------

Where:
price - Can be anything from 1 to 64
type - Can be "Coal", "Iron Ingot", "Gold Ingot", "Diamond", "Emerald", "Iron Coin", "Gold Coin", "Coal Block", "Iron Block", "Gold Block", "Diamond Block" and "Emerald Block"

For example:
--------------
[Cost]

10 Diamond

--------------

You can setup the signs on double chests or even trapped chests.

If you have any questions or bug reports, feel free to ask in #general or a staff member in-game.

The /siege command allows players to start a siege on someonem when they're online, if they are hiding inside their base. This mode furter encourages pvp by disabling chest access from defenders, forcing them to engage in combat. The attackers also gain the ability to destroy some basic blocks, such as dirt, sand and gravel, as a result, all players have to use proper materials to fortify their base. In case the attackers defeat the defenders, all doors and buttons are unlocked, allowing the attackers to pick up loot inside the base. Your chests are still safe! Others may access chests only if you add them on your /trustlist.

Changelog
- Added /siege command to enhance pvp.
- Increased maximum claim blocks from 5k to 10k.
- Added /tell, /m, /t and /whisper aliases to /msg.
- Added /suicide alias to /kill.
- Added /randomtp and /tprandom aliases to /tprand.
- Fixed /r command, now updates correctly.
