A comprehensive guide to all things Vanilly.
Vanilly is a community-focused simple survival server where any form of griefing or stealing is strictly prohibited. The economy is community driven using mainly Emeralds as the currency. You trade with villagers, do raids, and set up shops to get more Emeralds. Players are able to rank up in the game by voting. We have 20 unique vote ranks with different commands and perks that players can obtain. We host various events each month where anyone can participate to have fun and win rewards.
These pages are helpful for new players or experienced players wanting in-depth information about a particular subject.
Below are important links that relate to Vanilly.
Below are links to each social media platform we use.
This is an in-depth guide to help brand new players get established on Vanilly. It covers mostly basic information about commands and worlds, though could be helpful for established players wanting to learn more about a particular subject.
Whenever I use < > in a command, it means you have to enter something like a username. Don't actually enter in the < >!
So, what game modes are there?
The two game modes are Survival and Lifesteal.
In Survival, you can claim land, and make shops and warps. It is a friendly world, that is never reset.
In contrast, the Lifesteal does not have land claiming, and you cannot make shops, although there is the Auction House, that you can use to sell items. In this game mode, every time you kill a player (no land claiming means everywhere, PVP is turned on), you earn one more heart. Every time you die, you lose a heart. When you finally die when you only have one heart left, you get temporarily banned from the server, the duration depending on your rank.
Wait, what are ranks?
There are two types of ranks, store ranks and vote ranks. You buy store ranks, but you get vote ranks by voting for Vanilly on websites that it is on, like MinecraftServers.org. Both game modes have different ranks. As you rank up, you earn more perks!
(Note: you have to vote for each server specifically to rank up in those servers. So you have to vote for the Survival server to rank up in Survival, and you have to vote for the LifeSteal server to rank up in LifeSteal)
To vote, use the /vote command (make sure you are in the game mode that you want to get perks on). Then in the chat, five links will appear. Click each of those to open the sites to vote.
Bedrock players! Make sure to put a period in front of your name so the site knows that you play bedrock!

Since Emeralds are the main currency in Vanilly, players use abbreviations. Ems stands for Emeralds, embs stands for Emerald Blocks, and cembs stands for Condensed Emerald Block(these blocks equal x64 embs! Condense them with the /condense command, unlocked at the Poppy vote rank or the Axolotl store rank for Survival, and Hunter vote rank or the Blaze store rank for LifeSteal). Another abbreviation players use is wb, which stands for Welcome Back. It is sometimes used when someone logs back on.
More in the wiki at Glossary.
And what are crate keys?
In both game modes, you can earn Vote Keys by voting, which you can redeem by using the /warp crates command and placing the key on the Vote Crate. You can earn the other keys by ranking up, buying them with real-life money, or buying them from other players for Emeralds.

Can I set a home to teleport to?
Yes! Position yourself in the location and direction you want to teleport to, then use the /sethome <home> (can also be used to overwrite a home) command to create the home! Use the /home <home> command to teleport to it!
You start out with one home, but you can earn more as you rank up!
More in the wiki at Survival Features -> Home and LifeSteal Features -> Home.
Any general commands I should know?
Here are some:
Use the /view command to see all the claimed land around you. The land surrounded by red particles is land from other players. Yellow is land that you are trusted in. Green is your land. Go to a chunk not claimed that you want, and use the /claim command. Check the chat. A message should appear there saying you have claimed a chunk. You can edit the land using the /lands command, or you can use commands to edit your land.
To toggle permissions for players, open your lands menu, then click Roles -> Role you want to edit -> One of the two items in the bottom left corner.
More in the wiki at Survival Features -> Lands.
Warps are places where you can teleport that are set by players, like shops, towns, or grinders. You earn your first warp at the vote rank Fresh+ or the store rank Tadpole. To make a warp, use the /warps set <warp> to make a new warp. Make sure to stand in the position and direction you want players to teleport to.
More in the wiki at Survival Features -> Warps.
Players can create shops to sell items for emeralds or other things. To create a shop, point at the barrel you want to make into a shop and use the /shop create command. If successful, green particles should appear above the barrel, which means that it is a shop and not a normal barrel. Open the barrel, and you should find a special GUI. The first column is the items being sold, and the second is what it is being sold for. Each row is a different listing.
More in the wiki at Survival Features -> Shops.
Trading can be useful when you are looking for something specific, and you can't find a shop selling it. Use the /trade <player> command to trade with a player. Once the player accepts the trade, it will open a GUI. Put the items you want to trade on the left side. The items the other player puts in will appear on the right side. Click the clay block to turn it green, meaning that you are happy with the trade and ready to do it. Once both players are ready, a five-second countdown starts in case any player changes there mind. Once it gets to zero, the items will be traded.

Land areas are "sub areas/lands" inside a land. These areas are three dimensional, that means that they are not bound to chunks but instead to blocks. You can trust players to specific area(s) and apply flags for it, like you would do for a land.

You can set various of homes in different locations around the map depending on your rank, but you will have 1 home slot regardless. To set home you need to do /sethome [name] and then to teleport to your home you can do /home [name] but you can also do /homes and click the home you want to teleport to. If you want to reset one of your homes you can just do /sethome [name] again and click the 'click to confirm overwrite'. You can also delete your homes by doing the command /delhome [name]
Entities are among the most demanding things for a Minecraft server to handle, especially on versions 1.13+. Survival servers with mid-to-high player counts will often deal with thousands of entities. When we have too many entities loaded at once, server lag is inevitable, and the experience is made less enjoyable for everyone. Therefore, we try to limit the number of entities loaded by each player to avoid overloading the server
