Behind the scenes
We are often asked why the server cost so much money to run so I thought it might be a good idea to explain how a Minecraft server works.
Sure, you could get an old PC, install the server on it and connect it to your internet connection but that would be a very slow server, create a high electricity bill and eat up your internet speed. Instead its a much better idea to have a server, which is basically a big and powerful computer, place it in a dedicated room with lots of other servers and connected to a very fast internet connection which is exactly what Kaizen Worlds did.
Sadly we seem to need rules
We try to keep things simple and free at Kaizen Worlds but we do need some basic rules.
First off, we are a survival server so do not ask for free items. I only go into creative mode to work on the spawn area, the rest of the time I play in pure survival. That said DO ask other players for trades.
Carbonkitty and Diamondhoodie love farming so they are good people to trade farm related items with. The Troy loves fishing so talk to him if you need some fish. I love chopping wood and collect plants. YetiEatsYou, a new player to Kaizen Worlds, is a mining machine, so is SFaulken so speak to them for mining related trades.
Next up, griefing. Until we have the claims plugin back please do not touch other peoples builds. It sucks putting a lot of time into something only to find it griefed the next day. Once the claims plugin is back its open season, if you don’t claim anyone is allowed to destroy your build. We will use the griefprevention plugin which is silly easy to use. There will be a tutorial on the blog and as a YouTube video once its back.
PVP, it’s enabled but seeing players range from 4 to 40 please be aware not everyone might think it us funny to be ambushed. Once the worldguard plugin is back we will have PVP and non-PVP areas. If you walk into a PVP area you will be an open target for attacks and getting all your items taken. We will make paths between all areas on the server that will be non-PVP so you can get around without getting hassled.
Lastly, language. The f word is a great word when used in the right sentence but overuse just makes you look like an ass, just don’t, ok?
Donations, the blood of the server
We are a server by users for users. Most of us come from servers we poured our heart and soul into only to see it closed down. Kaizen Worlds intends to be free of that, as such I do my very best to keep expenses low so we can run the server off donations.
When we all share the cost we can play for next to nothing. If you enjoy the server please consider donating, every dollar helps and will be invested 100% into the server.
So far the top donators are SFaulken, MattTheDolphin from the G2 Project, Samantha, The_Troy and the Grolleman father and son team!
If you are unable to donate please invest some time in promoting the server. Tell your friends and family, share one of the blog posts or screenshots on other social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google Plus or whatever network you are on. The more people the more fun!
Our new spawn point. Sadly due to the way vanilla handles spawn you will be throw anywhere around this, including the water! Once we have bukkit we will again have an exact spawn which will be the middle of this circle.
