MonoSoho Minecraft

Shiny and new, zombies for you.

Vanilla Minecraft 1.12 PLUS

A slightly different way to play Vanilla Minecraft.

Protect yourself

When you place your first chest, the blocks around you are protected in your name. No one else can break blocks, open chests or gates, or use buttons or levers. But they can open wooden doors and trapdoors. Mine some gold and craft a golden shovel, and you can use that to extend your claim. The more you play the more you can claim.

Add some friends

If you want to share your claim with friends you can with the /trust command. The in game guide will help you.

Craft some mechanisms with CraftBook

Server side mods mean you can create some interesting machines. With redstone extensions, pipes, lifts, bridges and more you can create crazy machines.

Play your way

From spawn you can make your way out into the wilds and survive like a proper moutain man (or woman). Or you can stay near spawn and help create a village. Protection means you don't need to run 1000 miles and hide. You can just play vanilla, or you can explore the mechanisms CraftBook provides.

Also, once upon a time...

MonoSoho ran a Vanilla Minecraft server starting back in November 2010 until July 2015. Over those years, the same map was online and continuously added to through all the version changes Mojang threw at us. That original map and two others are now available to visit in a sort of museum mode, where you can look at all the crazy things built over time. For those who remember, the maps are 'Monotopia', 'Creo' and 'Mureybet' - all circa 2013.

NOTE: Once a new Minecraft version is released, it often takes a few days to a few weeks for all the support software we use to be updated. So check the version number below and if needed wind back in your Minecraft Launcher to the correct version to play.
Current Version: MC1.12
Once the correct version of Minecraft has started, click on Multiplayer to go to the multiplayer screen and enter the server's address into the text box
119.252.189.56:27290

If you did the above all corectly you should be standing at spawn.
