While Simplecraft is technically not a vanilla server as a truly vanilla server is presented in the way Mojang has released it. Lets be honest, in todays world to have a truly vanilla server without a whitelist is asking for disaster. If we have done what we have set out to do, you will not be able to tell the difference between this survival server and vanilla Minecraft.
Simplecraft only employs the use of a small number of plugins that do not directly affect gameplay such as Greif Prevention and CoreProtect. It is these small plugins that allow us to have a server open to the public and practically vanilla. We will never tolerate plugins that will spam your chat with nonsense that have nothing to do with the game at hand.
