Hello survivors! 1.16 is coming to SWU!

This update brings a whole lot of changes in The Nether! Because of this, we've decided that it would be best to completely reset The Nether in order to give everybody fresh chunks to explore. With this reset, any claims in The Nether are also going to be removed.

Key balances will also be reset with the update (excluding mythical, fun, specialty keys), so please make sure they are used if you want the rewards! We know many of you have been saving up your keys, but in order to ensure a fair experience for everybody, we feel that it's best to give everybody a fresh starting point.

Unfortunately, you will NOT be able to upgrade any SWU items to Netherite variants. We understand most of you wanted this option, but it would be too powerful.

The SWU quest world, Vestrull, will now permanently be open to survivors! For now, there is a limit of 1 quest per day, and the normal quests will still be active too. We will be adding more quests for you to do on a regular basis. For now, you can complete quests in the quest world as well as doing your normal /quests. However, the new quest world will eventually replace the current /quests system.

Since there have been a lot of new items added into the game, we felt it was time to update the Token Shop at spawn. It now includes (20) 1.16 items! Because these items are new, the prices are slightly inflated so that you can’t just get everything from the crate instantly, so choose wisely!

We hope you all have fun Surviving With Us in 1.16!

Hey survivors! 1.15.1 is finally upon us and that means we're updating! In order to expand the world to allow beehives to spawn naturally, we’ll be increasing the borders on each realm. Instead of all at once, we’re just going to increase the border on the yellow realm by 5,000 blocks in order to make sure that 1.15.1 is stable enough to have players generating new terrain (on 1.14, this would cause servers to lag horrendously). Because 1.15 is more of a bug fix update then a content update, we have decided to release our own little content update.

We will now have a voting feature to pass the night in the overworld. Now players will be able to start a vote on passing the night using the command /voteday, and if 75% of the non-afk online players vote, the time will change. If there aren’t enough votes, it will stay night. To avoid spam there will be a 10-minute cooldown timer on the voting command.

Our next cool feature is being able to turn off mob spawning in your claims (NOT usable on the Purple realm). It will cost the player $5,000,000 SpiroBucks to toggle this setting each time, so make sure you know what you want to do unless you want to break your balance. This will only affect mobs that spawn naturally, and will not affect any mobs that spawn from a placed spawner.

The last big change to the server would be how blocks in The End can now be broken and placed (Excluding Purple realm*). This change is mainly to prevent The End from being destroyed like it usually is. The End worlds on ALL realms will also be reset with this update.

If you’re within 500 blocks of (0, 0) in The End, you can only break/place the following blocks:
- Scaffolding
- End Crystals/Stone
- Redstone Items

We hope you like our content updates and can’t wait to see you on the server surviving with us in 1.15.1!

Hello Survivors!

We've been hard at work creating a big update for November, packed full of new content!

In this update, you'll find a new realm, a new spawn, a new crate, a way to monitor any XP or Money boosts that are active, and a new Mob Arena game!

Let's talk about the new Spawn! You suggested and we listened! This new spawn has many new features.

First, Top Map Art! Do you have Map Art that you would like displayed in a public setting? We now have a new area for it!

Second, a newly designed player made Warp area! This new area can accommodate tons of new warps.

Third, crates! We now have a new area to open and explore all of the crates in one location!

Fourth, Player shops and Token shops! Simply click on the villagers to explore all the shops have to offer!

Finally, we get to the Drop Parties! We now have a dedicated area for events! Join your friends and pick up some really cool loot at these special events! The new spawn will bring new adventure to our survivors and cool places to hang out.

Oh did we mention a brand new challenge? Introducing the MOB ARENA! Battle against waves of zombies! Take them on by yourself or bring a friend! The waves will start off slow and slowly progress. Do you have what it takes to get to the top of the leaderboard?

YELLOW REALM: This realm is exactly like Blue, Red, and Green, but is targeted for newer players and will be labeled as the new "Recommended" realm in the hub.

MYTHICAL CRATE: This new premium crate contains special items that give you unique perks while they’re in your inventory!
  • Mythical Book> Once in your inventory, you will either receive 2x EXP Multiplier or 10x EXP Multiplier!
  • Mythical Feather> Having this item in your inventory prevents fall damage!
  • Mythical Apple> Having this in your inventory stops you from losing hunger!
  • Mythical Rabbit’s Foot> Having...

Are you all ready for the big 1.14 update? We certainly are!

We’ve been working hard testing and creating SurviveWithUs 2.0 for the 1.14 update! Now it’s time to leave our beloved 1.12 behind to see the adventures 1.14 has in store for us!

With this update comes a whole lot of changes, not only in Minecraft, but with SurviveWithUs itself! The biggest change that you’ll see upon logging back onto the server is that you’ll be in a brand new place: our new lobby. When you’re in this area, you’ll be able to choose between one of two Realms to play on, Red or Blue. What’s a Realm? To put it simply, realms are completely separate worlds, with their own chats, players, economies, etc. This means items, money, crate keys, claims, etc., will not be transferable between realms. The world you all know and love is hereby known as the Red Realm, and you can get back to your old homes by entering the red portal in the hub. There are also some changes specific to the Red Realm: The Nether and The End worlds have both been fully reset, and the world border has been increased by a massive 25%. Moving to the Blue Realm, It is a brand new experience for adventurers and new players alike. This world has been generated from 1.14 (Starting out with a border of 20k x 20k), this is a completely fresh start for those who want to jump right in and explore the new changes 1.13 and 1.14 have given us. This fresh start means that your balance, playtime, items, etc. won't carry over from what you've done on the Red Realm. The only thing that will not be reset is your donor perks (Ranks/Extra Homes, etc.)

There’s also been a handful of other noteworthy changes, starting with the brand new /playtime system! You’ll now receive more than just a fancy title in-game for spending time on the server. Check out the new in-game menu to see the perks that you’ve unlocked! Keep in mind: playtime is specific to the realm that you’re on, so you'll need to grind out your playtime on whichever...

Good afternoon, Survivors!

Today comes the arrival of a new update: Quests!

What are "Quests", you ask? Well, a quest is essentially a task that you're given, and upon completion, you receive a reward. Every day on the server, you'll receive 5 different quests to complete, ranging from just being active on the server, to killing bosses! If you complete all of your quests, you'll be able to receive an even BIGGER reward!

Have fun questing!
