Welcome to Project Eden's Wiki!
Project Eden is a community-based Minecraft survival server. We try to keep the survival feeling alive, with the exception of a few "Quality of life" functions, such as our player-driven Economy and mcMMO. Player-vs-player combat is off by default and griefing is not allowed, allowing you to focus on surviving and building amazing things. We also have a large variety of Minigames which offer a fun way to relax and have fun with your friends. You can get some cosmetic collectibles for winning minigames, but it's important to remember that having fun with your friends should be your number one priority.
Above all else, the most important thing to us is our community. We take pride in the friendly community we have fostered and we're confident you'll find a new friend or two playing on our server. With a focus on community comes our guaranteed protection of griefing and raiding. If you ever find your lovely home damaged by someone else, all you have to do is put in a /ticket and a staff member will be around shortly to undo the damage. PvP is also off by default, though you're free to turn it on if you want to have a friendly battle with your friends. Overall, Project Eden is a very peaceful server. If that's what you're looking for, then you've found your perfect server.
Now, about the server itself. Lets start off with some FAQ.
What is McMMO?
- McMMO is a plugin that allows you to level up certain skills in Minecraft such as mining, fishing, archery, and more. As you continue to level up, you will receive certain perks while using this skill (like getting more ore when mining). Check out the McMMO page for more in-depth explanation of McMMO and it's features.
Is McMMO nerfed?
- Yes, McMMO has been heavily nerfed from its default configuration, as we are a survival server. There are still benefits for higher levels, however they will not entirely change the survival gameplay. For more information check the page McMMO page.
Where can I start building? How do I claim land?
- Anywhere! Our world is open to building, just find a spot you like and start building! This includes towns/cities.
How do I protect my land and chests?
- Project Eden uses two plugins to help you protect your stuff, and also a plugin that can protect your /sethomes. Read about them here. But don't worry, if you are griefed, make a ticket and a staff member will quickly fix it for you. Griefing is not allowed!
How can I allow someone to use my chests, doors, etc?
- Use /cmodify <playername>
What ranks are there? Can I be staff?
- Our server has a progressive rank system; in other words, you cannot skip ranks. You have to prove to us that you deserve to be staff by working your way through the ranks. This is how we measure maturity and make sure you will help the server grow, provide a good experience for our new members, and that you won't abuse your powers. You must play on the server for at least three months to be considered for staff.
How big is the world?
- The world has a circular border, with a radius of 17,500 blocks. Check bluemap for a better visual.
What difficulty is the server on?
- Get Optifine or do /rainoff
What is there to do?
- Endless things. Minecraft is, and always has been, a "Sandbox" game. Fire up that old imagination of yours and go build something spectacular. The possibilities are endless. And don't worry if you're not a good builder, you can also become rich using our economy system. And on top of that all, you can make friends. Who knew that survival wasn't so boring after all?.... We did!
- Project Eden uses a different VoIP application called Discord - Read about it here.
Is there a creative world?
- Yes! Check it out here!
Topics that contain a lot of information have separate pages - you can find links to them here or on the sidebar.

Requesting Staff Help
One of the main reasons the server runs so smoothly is because of the Staff. They are all ready to help you with whatever you need. If you ever need help from a staff member, simply make a ticket with the command /ticket <message>. It does not matter if no staff members are online, as the tickets are saved until a staff member closes them. Please make a ticket at the location of the incident, if there is one. For example, if you are killed by someone, make the ticket as close to the spot you were killed as you can. Screenshots are also extremely helpful when what you are ticketing is chat-related.
If you were griefed, please don't touch anything, and make a ticket immediately. Leaving everything the way it was makes it easier for staff members to take appropriate action against the griefer. If you are unsure of what to do, please use the command /ivebeengriefed ingame.
- /ticket I was griefed - missing my enchantment table and bookshelves
- /ticket KillerBear drowned me and stole my items while I was AFK
- /ticket MeanieBear was harassing me, threatening to grief me.
- /ticket HackerBear confessed to me that they are using a hacked client. <screenshot link>
Applying for Moderator
Project Eden's staff is essential to the server. Without our dedicated staff members, the server would not, and could not, be what it is today. Do you want to become part of that team, and give new players the same welcoming experience you got when you joined for the first time, if not even a better one? We'd love to have you!
There's some common misconception about what a moderator does, so I'll clear that up: A moderator's number one priority is keeping the server running smoothly. They fix grief, answer any questions a player might have, control chat, and settle disputes. Moderators must be well-tempered, patient, kind, helpful, and have to be extremely familiar with how the server works. However, moderators also are expected to participate in behind-the-scenes server development, whether that be providing opinions in the staff chat about new features or how to reform an old one, relaying feedback about how the server can improve from a player's perspective, and many other development related tasks. You must also be very active in the community and plan to continue that trend into the foreseeable future. If you feel you are ready to take on the position of Moderator, please apply using the template found below.
There's only one requirement to apply for staff - You must be the Elite rank or higher.
You can apply for moderator here

Discord allows you to voice chat with other players from our server. You can meet your friends there, talk in real time, and get to know them better. You can also have chat conversations with other players that are offline, so you can get messages across to people who play in different time zones. If you already know how to use Discord, you can connect to it here. Please keep in mind that using Discord (especially the voice chat) is completely your choice. If you are nervous or uncomfortable using it, that's totally okay!
How to get Discord
You can also download the free app on iOS and Android devices.
Project Eden uses BlueMap to generate a pre-loaded google-maps type map of the overworld. It is updated relatively quickly, hence the "live" part.
If you want to share your build using the map, use /maplink to get a link to your current location on the live map, or find your player head on the map and copy the url to get your locations link.
Check out the live map by going to map.projecteden.gg
Colors & Formats
Color codes can be used on signs. To change the color of the text, use the & plus the specific number/letter that corresponds to the color you want. For example,
&aText would become
Text. You can find a list of all the color and format codes here or using /colors in-game.
