Mostly Entirely Sorta Semi


A Minecraft Community

MESS Vanilla SMP is a Semi Vanilla Survival Minecraft server with minimal quality of life additions and active community management.
(And a minor obsession with chickens.)

Started by a group of friends who have been gaming together for decades, this server is community-driven and focused on vanilla gameplay, with very limited modifications. This is the spiritual successor to Pure Vanilla (PV), taking inspiration from NotClay's years of fine-tuning to find the most fun server settings, community events, and staff involvement.
