Community SMP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The Club Minecraft Community SMP is a semi vanilla, survival multiplayer server where the community hang out together, create amazing builds, play survival Minecraft with friends and much much more! PvP is optional, and claims and items are protected against griefing and stealing.
This page tries to answer any questions you might have.
Q1. What are the rules?
See Club Minecraft server rules. You can also check these out any time in-game by typing
Q2. I need help!
If any of our SMP admins (Riley, Phoenix, Met) are online, you can message them for help. Otherwise you can ask for help via our #smp channel on our Discord server, or simply ask any players online.
Some common things players need help with include:
- Trapped in someone’s base and can’t get out? Just type
- Need help claiming land? More info on claiming your land and base.
- Lost your base? Try
/backto return to your previous location (before you died or last teleported), or if you last slept in a bed at your base, then dying will take you back there. You can also set a
/hometo help you easily get back to your base in future – more info.
- Why can’t I join on Bedrock Edition? Unfortunately the plugins we use on the Community SMP don’t work correctly for Bedrock players so we’ve made the decision that the Community SMP is for Java Edition players only.
Q3. I’m new… what do I do?
The SMP is just like playing Minecraft in a single player survival world, but with lots of players all playing together in the same world. So you can do all the usual survival stuff – punching trees, building a base, mining, fighting mobs etc. But you can also make friends, collaborate on community builds, join events, go shopping (or even start your own shop!) or role play.
We have a friendly community, so type in chat to say hi and ask for help if you need it! There are some free items you can take from the guard hut by the castle entrance at spawn to help you get started. Don’t forget to follow the rules and claim your base to keep it safe.
Q4. Are hacks allowed?
No, hacks are not allowed and you will be immediately banned if caught hacking. Sorry – you’ll just have to mine for diamonds the old fashioned way… (we hear y=-59 is the best level for strip mining, or you can always explore some of those new huge caves!)
Q5. Who on earth is Terry/TerryCM?
Terry is a villager King who lives in the castle near spawn. He puts some free items in the guard hut by the castle entrance to help new players get started, and he’s always willing to consider requests from players. Just visit Terry in the throne room and write your request in a book (don’t forget to sign it so Terry knows who made the request) and put it in the chest.
Q6. What difficulty level is set and what happens if I die?
The server has been set to hard difficulty. This makes it possible to cure zombified villagers and create the most efficient farms. Don’t worry – keep inventory is set to true by default so you won’t lose your stuff if you die (although you have the option to change this – more info).
Q7. What are the key gamerules set to?
|mobGriefing||true (but datapacks are installed to prevent griefing from creepers, endermen and ghasts)|
Q8. How large is the world?
World borders have been set initially to the following in each dimension. When 1.19 releases, we’ll extend the borders and access all those amazing newly updated biomes!
|Overworld||-10,000 to 10,000 blocks in X and Z coords|
|The Nether||-1,250 to 1,250 blocks in X and Z coords|
|The End||-5,000 to 5,000 blocks in X and Z coords|
Q9. Can I end bust/raid this season?
Yes you can. We’ve set a world border in The End to limit how far you can go, but there should still be plenty of end cities available to raid. Remember though that others in the community also want to end raid, so please don’t over-use this.
If you find end raiding tricky, don’t worry – we’ve also enabled a Vanilla Tweaks datapack that drops an elytra and a dragon egg when you kill the ender dragon.
Q10. What plugins and commands are available for me to use?
We are using some plugins to keep claims and items safe and also to enhance gameplay. More info on the commands and features that are available.
