Who We Are
Our spawn was inspired by small-town living like the play style in beloved games such as Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley. We like to love things like jobs, townships, player shops, and trading. Our goal is to provide vanilla-feel, with a few semi-vanilla benefits that make it a little easier and more fun. Some like to call it “vanilla with sprinkles”. We just call it fun! 😉 We are constantly having monthly holiday events and weekly get-togethers, game nights, build contests, and PvP events. We try to have something for everyone and teach those who want to learn.
We are a tight-knit group of players from all around the world who are looking for similar players to join our minecraft family. We keep active players in the range of 60 – 80, this means we sometimes close applications. We enjoy being a medium sized server as to not be overwhelming, but still maintain activity during all hours of the day. Because our players are so diverse, that typically means we are active at all hours of the day! We provide a fun atmosphere for players in the US, UK, Canada, Europe, and Australia on a dedicated server hosted in New York.
Our player base is well balanced, roughly 50/50 male/female and between the ages of 18 – 65 (so far). The majority of our players are between ages 25 – 50 and we also have a strong community of mature university students ages 18 – 25. Stonewick is co-owned by a married couple (jellyplz & pointyy) who are young at heart and hope to meet new friends on this journey! Our staff is well balanced with mature players both male and female from all over the world.
We aren’t just building blocks, we’re building friendships. The majority of our players are coming from console to PC or are just coming back to MC after a hiatus. We’re a very warm, friendly community and patient with all questions! It’s more fun to learn or relearn a game with friends to help along the way. 🙂 We are a community of mature adults who enjoy wholesome fun in Minecraft and other video games.
No Grief – Protect your builds with Lockette and GriefPrevention. Our server runs block logging and anti-cheat plugins to protect ourselves from the bad guys. We use a comprehensive whitelist application to make sure we fully vet all our players.
DynMap – We use the DynMap plugin for all of our worlds so you can always keep tabs on where you are!
No Map Resets – We are dedicated to work hard so that our map is never reset. We know how much work you put into this world, we try our best to preserve it.
Player Economy – Our server economy is based on emeralds. We have player shops and trading that all function around our economy system.
Multi-World – We offer our main world, Stonewick SMP, which is where we play the majority time. We also have maps for Creative, UHC/resource, a second The End, and mini-games/custom maps that we switch out monthly.
Friendly Community – We pride ourselves on having the most welcoming community you will come across. We have newbie outreach projects and strive to make you feel like a part of our family as soon as you join.
Minimal Plug-Ins – The plug-ins we use are kept minimal to keep from breaking vanilla Minecraft. We consider ourselves “vanilla with sprinkles”. Plug-ins we use include: player shops, player sleep percentage (15%), custom brews (like beer), player crates, and custom NPCs/quests (minimal).
Command Block Warps – Members do not have /home, /spawn, /tp, or /warp. Instead, players who play up to 10 hours can apply to have 1 command block that teleports them to and from our Subway system at spawn and their base. This is completely optional, you can also use our Nether Hub for vanilla transportation.
