SDF Minecraft Servers


IRC: irc.sdf.org #minecraft / E-Mail: mc-admins

The SDF Minecraft Servers are available to all SDF Members and their guests.
SDF Members are encouraged to invite and add as many of their friends as they'd like to join in and play on the SDF Minecraft Servers.

If you are not currently an SDF member, and would like to join, please sign up here.

April 2015 Server update

The current server is a continuation of the old Craftbukkit server via Spigot. It uses a whitelist, so you will first need to add yourself and your guests to this list. After logging into your SDF account through SSH, you can use the command maint to add yourself, or your guests to the whitelist. To accomplish this you will need to select the option "manage optional account features and social networking".

SDF Minecraft Manifesto

This is the beginning of the SDF Minecraft Manifesto. Nothing here is intended as dogma, we hope to make some loose guidelines which will encourage friendly collabration. These items are open for discussion and voted upon in SDF's bboard.

- Transit Building - Roads and paths are encouraged to help prevent getting lost. Please don't build a road on or against someone else's property without their permission.

- Trench Digging - Trenches can be helpful for mining or other purposes. Too many of them can be a danger to other users. Bridges can help make these trenches safer for everyone. If you are done with a hole please fill it up.

- Home Turf - A user's respected home turf is a bordered off or simply obvious to the eye. Usually signs in front of a building or a good indication of ownership. Please don't destroy or build on another person's property without their permission.
