On this page we've described some of the custom features/items which you can find in our servers. These features were originally known as 'survival+', but quickly changed into global custom features. Not every feature of this list will be enabled on all servers.
To read the description of a specific feature, click on the box to expand it.
Please note that this is NOT a complete list of the custom server features, as a lot of our server plugins (and thus features) are custom coded.
The hydration bar indicated how hydrated you are (/thirst). Like in real life, water is required to stay alive. Just like the hunger bar in the game, you will need to make sure you stay hydraded by drinking enough fluids.Full hydration bar Slightly drained hydration bar
Don't just drink water from the sea, lake, or river, it's too salty and contains dangerous bacteria and other nasty things. You will need to 'purify' the water first by boiling it in a cauldron.
Other items like milk, potions and slices of melon will also increase your hydration level.
If you don't stay hydrated, you will slowly lose your energy and get nauseated, which will eventually lead to death from dehydration. The hydration level will be stored along with your game stats, which means that you won't lose your level during sessions.
What will drain my hydration level?
Your hydration level will always decrease, regarless of if you are being active of standing still (AFK excluded). When your hydration bar is full, you won't lose any hydration levels if you are standing still. However, if you don't have a full bar, you will very slowly lose your levels.
The following things will increase the amount of hydration levels you will lose while being active:
- Running and Flying
- Sitting in/on a vehicle (animals count as vehicles)
- Wearing body armor
- Being in a hot environment (nether, desert and mesa)
Large Glass Bottle
You can now also craft an extra large glass bottle to carry your purified water in. Each 'Large Glass Bottle' can hold the same amount of water as 8 regular glass bottles can. You need 8 regular glass bottles to craft 1 Large Glass Bottle.
However, due to a certain game mechanic, you will lose your large glass bottle when you try to fill it with regular water from, for example, a lake. It will turn the custom bottle back into a regular water bottle, so be careful.Large Glass Bottle recipe A Large Glass Bottle in your inventory (8x indicated the amount of uses there are left)
Raw Meat Poison
Eating raw meat will give you all kinds of diseases in real life, that's why you always cook your meat first before eating it.
In Minecraft, you only get poisoned when you eat raw chicken. The same effect you get from eating raw chicken now also applies to any other raw meat that exists in the Minecraft world, so make sure to cook it first.
Compass (no F3 coordinates)
To make the game a bit harder, we removed the position and biome indicator you see when you press F3 and open the debug screen. If you want to know your position, you must left-click a block with your compass while pressing the SHIFT key.The coordinates will show up after shift-left clicking with a compass The Debug screen (F3) without location and biome information
Tiered Monsters & Entity Blood
Even though the game difficulty remains the same, we've made some of the monsters even harder.
When a monster spawns, there's a chance that they will spawn as stronger mobs (also known as tiered monsters).
The higher the tier, the stronger the monsters are and the higher the chance of them dropping souls and other loot will be. Higher tier monsters will also give you more EXP once slain. The tiers will rank from 1 to 6, where the tiers 4 - 6 can only be spawned in a special way: By dropping cursed souls on the ground.
Every monster/animal will also show 'blood' particles when damaged. The color of the particles will vary depending on what type of entity it is.
The blood particles are the same particles as when you break a block, so it shouldn't impact the game performance at all.
Monster Souls & Cursed Crystals
Believe it or not, but every monster in the Minecraft world has a soul. These souls can be obtained by killing monsters. A regular soul is pretty much useless, you'll need to 'curse' it first (/witch).
To obtain cursed souls, the 'witch' has to curse a bunch of your obtained souls and melt them into 1 cursed soul. Once dropped, lightning will strike the ground and summon tier 4 to 6 mobs - your worst nightmare.
Souls can also be exchanced for crystals. It's rumored that the crystals open up new dimensions, but a way to open these has yet to be found...A regular Zombie soul A cursed Zombie soul
Ever wished you could fly? Fly potions allow you to fly for a certain amount of time, before teleporting you back to a safe place (usually the ground below).

Mega EXP Bottle
Mega EXP bottles can contain a large amount of EXP. When thrown on the ground, the full amount of EXP will be added to your EXP level.
These bottles usually contain 1000 EXP, which is the equivalent of 26 EXP levels (when calculated from 0 EXP).

Turn your fishing rod into a grappling hook, by crafting it with wire and arrows. With the grappling hook you can easily climb steep walls. trees and even holes you fell into.
Be careful though, if you don't fully hook your grappling hook into the wall, you might end up falling to your death. The grappling hook has a durability, so make sure to craft a new one from time to time.Grappling hook recipe
