Who are we

We live with the community

We promote a low stress community atmosphere, where we can take our time, think before we act, and have fun together! We respect each other and our differences. We act and communicate responsibly and take responsibility for our actions in game. It is a server free from griefing, thieving and moderators.

We aim for a simple yet enjoyable server. If there are suggestions made by any player we will take a look at them and maybe they will be implemented!

Specifications

chip

Processor

A processor running at 4.50 GHz gives us seamless gameplay. Having a processor that can keep up with the server reduces the amount of lagg spikes and rubber banding our players encounter.

SSD

Storage

Despite our quality specifications, the world of technology can be unpredictable. Although these unexpected occurrences are rare, we are still prepared with backups taken every hour. Should any corruption occur, we can restore lost or corrupted data quickly and minimize the effect it could have on our players.

RAM

RAM

With 8GB of dedicated RAM for the server, our players don't have to worry about random server crashes that could result in loss of data and can enjoy a hassle-free environment.

When running a multiplayer server like ours, speed and resources are everything. The Near Vanilla server and website run on dedicated servers, that are equipped and designed to give players the best play experience possible on a butter-smooth server.

General Information

Donations

The pay-to-win game structure is annoying. You already own Minecraft, so why would you want to pay in order to access a certain aspect of game play? On Near Vanilla, this doesn’t exist. 100% of all donations are put toward server costs and no in-game items will be given for donations. Several members enjoy this aspect of the server and donate to simply assist with server costs, for which we are very grateful.
Our donation store can be found here.

Discord

Near Vanilla uses Discord as our main source of communication. Discord is an all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that's free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. As an official Discord partner we hope you do yourself the favor of getting Discord and really become a part of the community. The people here are friendly and will be happy to give you a tour of things on the server. Lastly, we have our in-game Minecraft chat integrated through Discord, making it quick and easy to communicate with players at all times.
