Survival has always been the main focus of the server network. It has developed and progressed since March 2013 with the focus on no build limits, ease of use, simple commands and a great player experience.
Currently, there are 4 Survival worlds on the Survival Network, each resembling a new time or new features to the Server. Survival 1 started in March 2013, Survival 2 was introduced at Christmas 2013, August 2014 saw the introduction of Survival 3 and more recently on Christmas Eve 2015 saw Survival 4.0 being released. Survival 4 has been the largest release for the Survival server since it started, with a plethora of new features such as a beautiful completely custom terrain, custom mobs, new enchants and other new plugins and features to improve the whole Survival experience.
This page will provide brief explanations to each of the main aspects of Survival and will be a centre of information. All of this information will be in-game with the main /menu command. This is host to everything you need to know about Survival and the network as a whole.

Henry and Max create the custom mobs for the server and are continuously creating new mobs. If you have an idea or a request for new mobs, click here to visit the forum.
Some of the custom mobs drop unique new items which will be used in the near future to craft new items.
You will only find custom mobs in Survival 4.0.
Max and Henry plan on introducing dungeons to Survival 4.0 where players will fight through custom mobs to get new items. This is a work in progress.
There will also be different classes and rarity of items for example relics, artifacts and materials. This is also a work in progress and will develop into a fully fledged crafting system for new items and tools, much like an RPG game.
