What type of server is Vnlla?

We are a Survival Multiplayer server that allows raiding, griefing, and cater more towards an adult audience. Although we do NOT shun a younger crowd.

Is Vnlla a vanilla Server?

Vnlla is no longer 100% a vanilla server. Instead, we have upgraded the server to run on the Spigot.jar to help improve your gaming experience.

What is the Map Size?

The map has a 1 Million Block diameter, which makes it 500k Blocks from the 0,0,0 mark.

How does Voting work?

By typing /vote on the server you can bring up the voting links to be able to support the server with a few benefits.

These benefits include:

  1. Being able to teleport to your home
  2. 2 pieces of cooked steak per vote (Limit: 4 votes per day)
  3. 5 XP levels per vote
  4. when you reach 25 Votes you will be made a server VIP for a period of 30 days
  5. When you reach 60 Votes you will be made a server VIP2 for a period of 30 days

What are Vnlla's Ranks?

We do NOT support ranks on the server. The closest things we have to ranks is a server VIP Player & a VIP2 Player.

How do I get VIP or VIP2

You get VIP by voting on our four voting sites. Once you hit 25 Votes, you will receive VIP for a period of 30 days. When you get to the VIP level you get an extra home over the default players as long as you retain this level by continuing to vote. If you do not keep VIP then you will lose the home until you have it again, the actual home set is not lost, only the ability to go there..

You get VIP2 by voting on our voting sites. Once you hit 60 Votes, you will receive VIP2 for a period of 30 days. When you get to the VIP2 level you get an extra two homes over the default players, as long as you retain this level by continuing to vote. If you do not keep VIP2 then you will lose the home until you have it again, the actual home set is not lost, only the ability to go there..

How many Entities am I allowed to have and why?

You are allowed up to a total of 150 Entities at your base and a total of 100 Entities in your view distance. We limit the number of Entities a player may have at their base because potential lag that can arrise from out of control, colliding mobs. Vanilla minecraft simply is not able to support a large number of Entities on a multiplayer server, along with a large number of players currently playing, without noticeably lagging.

To check how many Entities are at your base you need to push F3 and look down to the 4th Row from the Top Left Corner of your screen. There you will see an E. The first number after that E is the total number of Entities in your view distance & the first number after the : is the total number of Entities at your base.

Are Mods allowed?

We do NOT allow any mods on the server, however, we do allow the Optifine client. This is to keep the server a balanced playing experience for all players.

How do I become Staff?

You are allowed to post an application in the Moderator Application Section on the forum, however, you should not keep your fingers crossed as we are extremely picky about our staff. As a side note, do NOT ask any staff members for staffing privileges, it could get you banned.

What do I do if I am Banned?

You should make an appeal on our forums and be patient for a staff member to answer your appeal.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SIGN BACK ONTO THE SERVER UNDER AN ALTERNATE ACCOUNT! It will simply NOT work and will only ensure your ban remains.

Why am I not allowed on top of the Nether?

We do not want players on top of the Nether because it takes away from the gaming experience and feels a bit cheaty to us. People travel far away to be able to make large bases above the ground and allowing people to just run on the flat surface of the Nether, with Speed Potions et al., makes their travels rather moot. Running on top of the Nether also causes the server to have to load in a lot of new chunks and regions very quickly, which could lead to server lag.

Here is a forum post that helps explain why in more detail.

NOTE: Running on top of the Nether can either lead to you being kicked from the server or banned from the server.

How high can I fly with my Elytra?

We limit players abilities to fly above Y = 356(ish). This is 100 blocks above the building level cap. This is because the higher you fly with your Elytra the more lag you cause the server, to the point you could bring it to a crawl.

NOTE: Flying above this height could lead to you either being kicked from the server or eventually banned from the server.

What type of plugins does Vnlla use?

Although we prefer to keep the specifics of the plugins that we use to be as close to a secret as we possibly can keep it; I can say that we do not use any plugins that alter the way that you play the game. Most of the plugins used are for Administrative purposes. We have also wrote a few of our own plugins that the server uses as its foundation, and all these plugins are doing is the same thing Vnlla's Wrapper had done when we were a completely vanilla server.

What do I do about Admin Abuse?

You should talk to one of the owners about this issue and only one of the owners. Do NOT try to pick a fight with the Admin. It might only make the issue worse.

How often are Restarts?

We Restart the server every 4 hours. Restarts are used to be able to kick AFK players from the server, to try to reduce the lag that the server might currently have, to clear entities that did not despawn from chunks properly, to unload chunks that did not properly unload, and to Reset the area around Spawn, ensuring that Spawn looks good for new players coming onto Vnlla.

Why does my House keep disappearing?

If your house keeps disappearing on the server it is probably because you have built too close to the Spawn Building. During our Restarts, we reset the two region files surroudning the Spawn Building, back to the original state we have saved in our backups. So, building in that area would mean that your house would disappear after a Restart.

I lost my /home, but still have either my default/ VIP/ or VIP2 level, what should I do?

You should report this to an operator. Please have the coordinates of your Home's location ready by your side.

NOTE: ALWAYS write down your Home's coordinates on a piece of paper or in a document on your computer. This way you never forget where your Home is located.

How do I set my home to another location?

Just simply retype /sethome (or /sethome 2(3) if you are a VIP(2) in the chat when you have the appropriate number of levels to reset your Home.

Does Vnlla have a Server Shop?

No, we want all players to be responsible for themselves.
