This Land is very different from pretty much every other Minecraft server.

Keywords you'll recognise if you've ever played on public Minecraft servers

  • Semi-vanilla - just a few plugins mostly for protection and chat management, nothing game changing.
  • Survival - all players (including mods and admins) play and build in survival mode, and have done from the very beginning so anything you see[1] has been resourced and built with blood, sweat, and tears.
  • Player-versus-environment - this server is not focused on player-versus-player.[2]
  • Mature - only players 18 and older are allowed to join.
  • Small - currently about 6 regular players.
  • Whitelisted - something something, words.

Keywords you might not recognise

  • Consent culture - Doing things that affect others without their permission is not how we do things.
  • Autistic space - run by and for autistic people[3]
  • Nonbinary friendly - a safe place for nonbinary trans people - your pronouns will be respected.
  • Unadvertised - This Land isn't advertised in standard Minecraft server listings, So we never have any griefers.

Extra features maintained by staff

  • Custom AutismChat plugin - significantly more control over chat-related stimulus.
  • Effective, Accessible out-of-game communication - Telegram groups for socialising and discussion without having to be online at the same time as others.
  • This Wiki

Other, more volitile selling points, but no less awesome

What is it like to play on This Land/player testimonials

this being a safe space for autistic people is really important to me - thats why i joined in the first place!! + nonbinary stuff of course :D this land is a goldmine, i dont know any other servers like it
- a currently annonymous player

Footnotes

  1. Exception: the tutorial building was thrown up quickly by the admin in creative mode because it was considered urgent and not something that interferes with the rest of the server.
  2. We have a PvP plugin that you can use if you want to fight with other players who want to fight.
  3. definitely autistic people, not people with autism. Autism is part of who/what we are and it's not an illness.
