How do I join Nerdcrafteria?

The server’s IP is mc.nerdcrafteria.com. For more detailed info, please check out the Joining Nerdcrafteria wiki page. Nerdcrafteria is a Java Minecraft server. Bedrock players will not be able to join, sorry!

I joined the server but I can’t move!

When you first join the server, you will be prompted to read and accept our Code of Conduct. Once you have accepted the rules, you will be teleported to our main world! If for some reason you need help at this point, please submit a /modreq

I’ve accepted all the rules now where am I? Where do I go from here?

Welcome to Nerdcrafteria! You’re now in Nerdtopia, which is our main town! Look around and enjoy the architecture. You can purchase an apartment, buy a plot, and see what your fellow players have built!

We have several other worlds you can access which are detailed below:

  • Explore world – Every month our resource world resets! In our explore world you can gather resources, build, hunt, and mine as you wish. Just remember that everything resets on the 1st of the month, so you will need to store valuables somewhere safe! You can easily visit by using the command /explore
  • Skyblock – Skyblock allows you to work your way up with minimal resources to complete challenges and build your own awesome island! You can get started by typing /is

How can I contact a staff member?

If you need to report something to a staff member, we have an in-game ticket system that you can use. At the location of the problem simply type /modreq followed by a description of your issue.

Outside of Minecraft, if you have a question you can also contact a staff member by email or using our staff contact form. You can find a list of our current staff and their email addresses listed here.

General Server Questions

When will we update to the newest version of Minecraft?

Nerdcrafteria relies on many plugins, all of which have to be updated to the newest version of Minecraft before we can update the server. Please be patient and enjoy all we have to offer! You can view the version of minecraft we are currently using on the Joining Nerdcrafteria wiki page.

What is griefing?

Griefing is defined as altering, stealing, destroying, or generally messing with property (builds, items, penned or named animals, etc) of other players without their permission. As the Code of Conduct states, griefing is not allowed on this server.

Is PVP allowed?

PvP is explicitly not allowed unless it is in clearly defined arenas/minigame worlds sanctioned by the server staff. Lava killing, creating death holes, trapping other players with hostile mobs, and other forms of killing players are all immediate grounds for being banned from the server.

Help, I’ve been banned / muted! How do I appeal?

If you’ve been banned or muted on the server and would like to appeal, you can fill out a punishment appeal form. Be honest and as articulate and clear with your appeal as you can. Any further questions you might have can be addressed within the form/appeal. It would also be a good idea to make certain you completely understand the rules outlined in the Code of Conduct before you appeal as well.

Discord? What happened to TeamSpeak?

After many years of using TeamSpeak we have switched over to Discord! To join you can click this invite link. For more info, links to download the application, and other Discord related rules, click here.

There are two easy ways you can donate to the server. You can click the donate tab above that will take you to the server’s donation page. There are various perks, boons, items, and fun extras you can purchase! All money donated to the server is profited to The Foundation to Decrease World Suck (FTDWS), a charity owned in part by the Vlogbrothers.

Nerdcrafteria FAQs (Economy Server)

How do I earn Llamas (money)?

You can earn llamas by killing mobs, selling various items to ashop (Admin Shop), or selling to player shops across the Economy server. To check the current amount of llamas you own try /money.

How do I rent/sell a Plot or Apartment?

To buy a plot simply right click the for sale / for rent sign in front of the open plot. If you’re having trouble finding a free plot to buy you can try the /arm find command.

To extend your rent on an apartment (by up to 60 days), you simply right-click on your rent sign.

Can I rent more than one plot?

Plots are a limited commodity. For that reason we kindly ask that you rent / purchase one apartment or one plot per town.

My plot disappeared! What happened?

Nerdcrafteria has a policy that if a player does not log on for three weeks their plots are subject to be reclaimed and wiped clean. The only way to protect your plots is by filing an AFK Form on the forums. This will protect your stuff, but please be aware there is a limit to how long you can be gone. You can read more about the AFK policy here.

Apartments can only be rented for 60 days maximum If you don’t renew your rent regularly, it may have expired.

How do I keep my stuff safe?

Need to protect your things in Explore? Simply lock your things with /lock and punch the object to protect it. Want friends to have access? Try using /cpassword [password] and give your friends the password. Otherwise, an apartment or your plots are options to store things safely.

How do I set a home?

To set a home, use /sethome [home name]. Then to get back to your home, do /home [home name]. You can have a maximum of 2 homes (3 with a bed) at any time in Nerdcrafteria. All homes in /explore, /nether, and the end must be cleared before the reset on the 1st of the month.

What is a boon and how do I use it?

There are several boons available for purchase on our store!
