NOTICE: Please check out the website for this server here, where information and discussion can also be found!
The RRU Minecraft server is another way for members of RRU to meet up outside of the forum, for those who enjoy playing Minecraft too. This server is open 24/7 and available solely to members of RRU. If you're interested in joining this server, simply post here or send me a PM and I'll add you to the list!
Currently I pay for the server hosting. The details of the server are as below:
- 1GB RAM
- 1-20 Players
- Vanilla Survival* server
- 1GBps Network Port
- American-based server host
- 24/7 server uptime
I'm perfectly happy to pay for it on my own, but if enough donations were made I could up the specs of the server (just $4 is enough per upgrade). Plus donations are welcome anyway to pay for it, it's only $4 a month
*You can request a mod to change your gamemode if you wish.
Ops are underlined. In order to sign up to this server you must have at least 10 posts and have been a member for at least 4 months. This is to prevent random members who don't contribute to the forum from joining and playing on the server.

Note: Although this server only supports 20 players, this means 20 players at once. Seeing as there are generally only 1-5 players online (I've never seen more than 5 myself), you can still sign up to the server.
I know this is a friendly small server, but rules are still important to keep things from getting out of hand and ensuring everyone has a good time. Hence you must follow the two rules below or you may be banned from the server.
Rule 1: Respect Other Players
This means no insulting other members, or using derogatory language to others. This also means NO GRIEFING - which includes vandalising other people's creations, damaging them, etc. Unless you are given permission from that player.
If you believe you have been a victim of griefing, notify a moderator and send me a PM. I will review the report and do my best to deal with the situation.
*Eh, this doesn't seem to be working. Just send me a PM if you have any issues.
Rule 2: No Cheating
This includes me and the moderators too (as does the previous rule), especially as we have more 'powers'. I don't know if cheating is possible on servers but if so, don't do it Moderators should not use commands such as /give to grant themselves or others items, xp, etc., as this is a survival server.
- PVP is disabled
- Flight is disabled
- Mobs and animals are enabled
- Structures and dungeons do generate. Please don't steal everything you can, give others opportunities to loot things.
- Day/Night cycles are active.
Also, it'd be nice if players could maintain a good distance from each other's structures. If someone builds something big or that they are otherwise proud of, be respectful and don't build a huge portal right next to it.
UltraHardcore is a special game that can be played in which players must defeat the Ender Dragon in a short space of time, while avoiding being killed by other players, on an extremely hard difficulty. The plugin used for this server is UltraHardcore. A brief run-down of the mechanics are below:
- Health regeneration is disabled.
- You lose hearts if hungry.
- Only Healing Potions and Golden Apples can restore health.
- Player versus Player is enabled.
- The aim is to defeat the Ender Dragon. However, if at any point one man is left remaining, they are nominated the winner.
- Branch mining is not allowed; you must mine your resources using natural caves.*
- If you die, the game is over, and you are banned from the server until the round is over.
*See this image by Antillies if you're not sure where to draw the line. You can create tunnels between caves, tunnels as homes, etc. But extensive branch mining involving many corridors and such is clearly not allowed.
While a round of UHC is underway, the standard server will be backed up and closed temporarily.
If you'd like an idea of what the game is like, Antillies provided an excellent description:
Below is a list of all the rounds of UHC so far, including any pending rounds.
