I play on a Minecraft 1.12.2 server of which you can find further details on the ftb259.com website. I will get perks for writing this post but I am happy to do so as playing Minecraft is fun. If your wondering what Minecraft is like and dont have a minecraft account why not try the free minetest game as it is pretty similar in that you dig and gather wood and food and that you can craft.
I also like to play Minetest which is also a good building & crafting game but the Mobs are a bit basic, although watching a tree walking around at night is quite interesting. I play both and each game has it’s pro’s & con’s. I also have a small protected base in each game, in Minetest you can build your own protected area, I gather resources like wood, stone, ores and food. I store a lot of excess material for safe keeping.
2nd game is Minetest = minetesthosting.com & Port: 32663
* No password needed for Town1 on minetesthosting.com:32663
Town1 is my main town, I have a protected house in a couple of areas.
Actually a password would stop someone else from using your character & stealing your stuff, so I would recomend having a password in case. I have not seen any griefers but you never know and why take the risk.
It is a survival game so have fun and catch us in game, some plugins exist to improve gameplay. I like both games as I said as there are so many things you can gather, mine and craft and fight the mobs it is fun. Take out the Mobs to score points, how high on the scoreboard will you go?
That is a good point, I really have not paid much attention to the points as building my own base has indeed been a rather time consuming effort but the rewards of being able to start and finish in ones own base is indeed an advantage. Sometimes those mobs are rather dangerous especially when the come out at night. Then you need a base or be busy in a safe area mining or gathering wood.
I have a base in a couple of areas, one is protected so I am safe from griefers and mobs but the other is not but allows me to dig deep with little to no trouble with mobs.
