  • Server IP Address

    A public Java/Bedrock cross-platform vanilla survival multiplayer server with land claiming, graves, economy, community, and more.

    Java/Bedrock IP: mc.kdgaming.net

    Port: Default (Java 25565 / Bedrock 19132)

    Cross-Platform Information and Account Linking

    The server runs on the Purpur server software (fork of PaperMC) for the Java Edition. This means that all players on Bedrock will have most Java items, recipes, and mechanics such as combat cooldown, Java mob spawning, redstone, etc.

    If you own both Java and Bedrock, it is recommended you link your accounts to share progress between them. To link your Java/Bedrock accounts, visit the account linking site at https://kdgaming.net/link. Linking your accounts allows you to play with the same account on both Java and Bedrock. WARNING: After linking accounts, any existing data on your Bedrock account such as claimed land, pets, progress, Ender Chests and other player data will not migrate to the linked account. Ensure you migrate all your stuff to your Java account first!

    Bedrock players (who don’t have a linked Java account) will have an '-' before their gamertag.

    When you join or respawn, the world & inventory may not load at first. This is because Geyser is authenticating you with a Java UUID. Please be patient.

    When joining the server on Bedrock, the client will prompt you to install some resource packs. If this is causing issues with your Bedrock client, choose to deny the resource pack download.

    Server Status

    The server status can be found here: https://status.kdgaming.net (automatically updated)

    Server version: Java 1.19.2

    Supported client versions: Java 1.18.0-1.19.2 / Bedrock 1.19.20-1.19.50 (as of November 30, 2022)

    The server restarts automatically on select days at 12am PT/3am ET unless players are online. This is to clear any unused data to free up server resources. The daily restart has temporarily been disabled.


    Server Map & Land Claiming

    The server map can be found at https://map.kdgaming.net.

    In order to prevent griefing, you must claim your land and properties. Use a wooden shovel to choose the corners of the land you want to claim. Use a stick to check if land was already claimed.

    If using the wooden shovel does not work (i.e. some Bedrock users), use this method to claim and expand your land: Hold a wooden shovel, then use /claim [optional block radius] to claim a piece of land. Then to extend, stand on your claim, face the direction you want to expand, then use /extendclaim [number of blocks]. You can enter a positive number to expand, or a negative number to shrink.

    Claims command table:

    Command Description Alias
    /AbandonClaim Deletes the claim you’re standing in.
    /ClaimExplosions Toggles if explosions are allowed in the claim.
    /Trust Gives another player permission to edit in your claim. /t
    /UnTrust Revokes any permissions granted to a player in your claim. /ut
    /AccessTrust Gives a player permission to use your buttons, levers, and beds. /at
    /ContainerTrust Gives a player permission to use your buttons, levers, beds, crafting gear, containers, and animals. /ct
    /TrustList Lists the permissions for the claim you’re standing in.
    /SubdivideClaims Switches your shovel to subdivision mode, so you can subdivide your claims. /sc
    /RestrictSubclaim Restricts a subclaim, so that it inherits no permissions from the parent claim. /rsc
    /BasicClaims Puts your shovel back in basic claims mode. /bc
    /PermissionTrust Grants a player permission to share his permission level with others. /pt
    /Untrust All Removes all permissions for all players in your claim.
    /AbandonAllClaims Deletes all of your claims.
    /BuyClaimBlocks Converts server money to claim blocks. /BuyClaim
    /SellClaimBlocks Converts claim blocks to server money. /SellClaim
    /GivePet Gives away a tamed animal.
    /ClaimsList Lists a player’s claims and claim block details.
    /IgnorePlayer Ignores a target player’s chat messages. /Ingore
    /UnIgnorePlayer Un-ignores a target player’s chat messages. /UnIgnore
    /IgnoredPlayerList Lists all players currently ignored. /IgnoreList
    /Siege Besieges a player (disabled by default).
    /Trapped Gets a player out of a land claim he’s trapped inside.
    /UnlockDrops Allows other players to pick up items you dropped when you died.

    Abusing this land claim system will get you banned.

    Everyone starts off with 500 blocks of land claim and earns 1,500 blocks per hour while active (not AFK), or approximately 125 blocks every 5 minutes (max of 500,000 accumulated blocks). Placing a chest (if you don’t already have claimed land) automatically claims the area in a four-block radius. These chest claims expire after 7 days of inactivity (unless expanded). Land claims expire after 14 days of being unused.

    All of a player’s owned claims will expire after the player is inactive for 60 days.

    Teleport to a random location on the map with /wild.

    Waypoints can be created and managed using /waypoints or /wp.

    You can set homes using the /sethome [name] command, teleport to homes using the /home [name] command, and delete homes using the /delhome [name] command.

    You can teleport to spawn using the /spawn command.


    Economy

    We are using EssentialsX as our economy plugin. The commands are as follows:

    Use /disposal to get rid of unneeded items (preferably unsellable items).

    Use /balance to view your current balance.

    Use /balancetop to see other players’ balances in a leaderboard style format.

    Use /pay [player] [amount] to send a player some of your money.

    Players earn money naturally by doing various tasks, such as farming, mining, hunting, fishing, and digging. The amount of money given doing tasks increases as players level up and gain experience.


    Player Shops

    Players can easily buy and sell items by creating their own shops. The server uses chests to create local shops, and players interact with these chests for transactions.

    There are also shops available at server spawn for anyone to buy and sell, located at the Library and the Ocean Shop. Feel free to sell your own items!

    Creating a Shop
    To create a shop, place down a chest and left-click it with the amount of items you want to sell. For example, if you want to sell diamonds, you'll need to hold it in your hand and left-click the chest. You will then be prompted to type in the chat how much you would like to sell the item for (the price per 1 of that item). After you completed those steps, the item should be displayed on top and a sign with info be placed on the side of the chest. You will then need to put the item you want to sell in the chest.

    A Shop may not be created if there is no space around the chest to place down a sign. You will also need at least Container Trust access to create a Shop.

    Buying/Selling Items
    To buy or sell an Item from/to a Shop will you need to left-click the sign. You will then be prompted to write the amount you want to buy/sell in chat.

    Whether a shop sells or buys items depends on the displayed info on the sign.

    Finding Shops
    You can find shops using the find command listed below, but you can also find shops using the server map. On the right side of the interface, expand the "Markers" section, click on "QuickShop", then type the name of the item you want to trade in the search bar. It will list the markers of all the shops that are trading that item as well as give its price.

    Commands

    The current tax rate for player created shops is at 5%. Taxes for player created shops are temporarily suspended.

Both traders do not need to add an item; useful if the person is giving away their items. While in the trading GUI, place the items you’ll be giving to the other player on the left side, then click the red block to continue. Both players must accept for the trade to complete.
