Howdy All. As you are aware, about a week ago we said our goodbyes to Survival 1.12. It was a time of mixed emotions, but it was good to see so many people laying TNT all over their builds and destroying their hard work. Having access to fly in survival.... well i never thought i'd see add5tar allow that.. 

But moving on...In the past week we have been madly getting the "New" Survival ready. You may have noticed the increase in staff presence. Although it may have seemed that we were quiet in chat, we have been really busy testing and tuning. But your perseverance has paid off and our intention is to re-open Survival sometime in the next few days.

Farewell 1.12 Survival

_adnap_ MO posted Dec 2, 18

There comes a time when all great things come to an end. Sadly, the existing Survival world is at that stage. On Monday night, 03 Dec 2018 (Sydney Time), the current survival will be shut down to make way for the new 1.13 Survival.

This should come as no surprise, and it's been long anticipated. We have been madly working to get everything in order, and we are nearly there. After the current Survival is shut down, it will be offline for several days, to give admins the chance to configure and rollout a brand new, fresh 1.13-based map.  During this time you can build in creative, try out HC1 or HC2, play some MiniGames, or spend some time in Skyblock or Skygrid.

If you haven't heard about transferring keepsake items, please read this post, and take action before December 3, 2018.

Don't forget we still have our 50% discount on Build Downloads! 

It will be sad to see the existing Survival go. This forum post includes some amazing builds and memories from Survival 1.12.  However, many people are looking forward to the opportunity for new discoveries and builds in Survival 1.13.  It will include exciting new terrain, shipwrecks, choral, new mobs, and maybe some new features.... 

greglaz Can not wait for a fresh start, will miss my nice little hole in the ground. and my Addstar head
_Ballsy_ "and maybe some new features" Yay! tree felling and vein miner confirmed! haha
ItzPokePrince Welp, now I have a chance to be organised for once xD Looking forward to a fresh start, surprisingly for me :)

Good news everyone!

AddstarMC is moving to a new hosting provider, where we will have faster servers! We have started testing some migrations and we should be completely migrated in the next few days. We're trying to minimise disruption, but as I'm sure you can understand, there will still be disruptions and times where the server will need to be offline.

We will be upgrading from 2x very old/slow servers... to 3x much faster servers

This good deal came at an opportune time for us, with new survival opening soon and the holiday season with more players online. This should mean much less lag and a more enjoyable experience for everyone!!

Update: The server migration has completed. We are now running on newer faster hardware! :D

Commander_Krill Yay to Redstone and no more panda's cruising around your place putting up signs that say redstone machines slow dow...
GrizzlyGnome Hooray! :) :) :)

We are pleased to announce a mechanism for transferring some keepsake items from the existing survival world to Survival 1.13. The goal is to allow you the option of transferring items like awards given out by admins at drop parties or on holidays, or books that you have written. There are very strict rules about what we'll allow to be transferred. After the survival reset, Moderators and Admins will review your items to ensure they don't violate rules and manually transfer these items back to you.

Rules for keepsake items:

  • NO minerals, ore blocks, enchanting books.
  • NO elytras, spawn eggs, beacons, nether stars.
  • NO weapons, armour or tools or any kind.
  • NO item you could sell at the admin shop to gain an advantage over others.
  • Except, you are allowed any item handed out at a server event with custom lore.


There is a very limited time frame so be sure to act now if you have keepsave items!

  1. Travel to Survival (you must use 1.12) using the Hub Compass
  2. Grab a single regular chest (not a shulker box) and the items you want to keep.
  3. Type /keep and you will be taken to a room with open spots on the floor.
  4. Place your chest in an empty slot (it will lock automatically)
  5. Put your keepsake items in the chest - You can only have one chest!

Once the old survival has been replaced with Survival 1.13, you can start building and establish a house or base (be sure to claim it using a golden shovel!).
Within 2 weeks of Survival 1.13 opening, we will announce how to request to have your keepsake items returned to you.
