Ultimate Minecraft opened it’s doors in October 2010. The server came about after two players, andypandy89 and ks07 were forced to find a new server to play on after their previous server was closed down by it’s owner. Rather than move on to another server with the rest of the group, the duo decided to start up their own public community and try their hand at administration. Over time, the ranks grew as new players found us, as well as a few friendly faces from their past. Fast forward to the end of 2011, Ultimate Minecraft is still going strong. Plugins have changed, Minecraft has changed, players have joined and left, drama has reared it’s ugly head, staff have been promoted and demoted, new admins have been recruited and departed – but we like to think that at it’s core, the server offers a friendly and welcoming environment to enjoy the game.
The Ultimate Minecraft of today is a medium sized yet busy freebuild Minecraft community. We run the awesome Bukkit server mod with a large list of plugins that provide us with area ownership, economy and anti-grief, as well as many commands and features. We also have a team of active moderators, game masters and admins, who are in game regularly to assist.
Ultimate Minecraft is backed up by a powerful Haswell Intel Xeon E3-1240 v3 processor, 32GB of RAM with 1 SSD and 2 HDDs in RAID1, running Linux. All of that is hooked up to you by a 1 Gbit/s (1000 Mbit/s) internet connection in a world renowned professional datacentre in Atlanta, Georgia, to give our community the best experience we possibly can, keeping lag to a minimum – we own the hardware.
Our server is currently greylisted. This means that new players are restricted to building in a seperate world for visitors imaginatively called “The Guest World”. Play for a while, and if you like the server then apply using the link to the top right to be promoted to member and get access to the entire world! In the unlikely event you find yourself not enjoying Ultimate Minecraft, you haven’t wasted any time signing up for a whitelist. It’s the best of both worlds, while keeping quick and efficient for all involved.
