We also have an 1TB off-site backup archive where we store daily backups to ensure corruptions or hardware failure cannot cause issues.

We have people from all over the world! Mainly from Europe and US though.

The server usually peaks around 19:00-22:00 UTC. As of January of 2021, we usually have 10-15 concurrent players online. Similarly, we have 30-40 daily unique logins and about 80 active players.

Voicechats are quite active. We have a channel just for music, two regular voice channels and chill one just to hang out and be together.

We often have community projects (Such as the building of the netherhub, spawn, shopping district), minigame events and more! Here some pictures some projects and fun moments!

It’s no secret that running and developing a server isn’t free. Every month we save up the donations until we reach our donation goal. which can be seen below. If that’s completed, we use the rest of the donations to invest in better softwares or resources. 100% of the income is invested back in the server.

  • Dedicated server: €45
  • Off-site backups: €11
  • Webhosting: 4€ 

Total: ~60€
