PirateCraft is an immersive pirate-themed Minecraft survival server. Running for 5 years, it has fostered a tight-knit community that's evolved into an extended family. At the heart of PirateCraft's operations is the principle of permanence. The provided map is never reset. Therefore, the builds are kept and protected, ensuring that players can take a hiatus for 3 months, or even 3 years, and return to find their progress intact.
To prevent staleness, the land and abandoned claims are rejuvenated over time to maintain freshness. Players also have the option to request removal and regeneration of claims and land by the staff team, who only intervene when called upon. At PirateCraft, players have the freedom to sail solo or build an empire. A detailed history of the PirateCraft operations can be found at https://wiki.piratemc.com/PirateCraft_Timeline.
Players will find no hindrances to begin their journey at PirateCraft. The spawn area is compact, and departure in any direction is all that's required to set their adventure in motion. Players will spawn as a deckhand on a shipwreck off the coast and must gather resources to build a survival habitat. They can establish their own empire, join another, or choose the excitement of solo piracy. A comprehensive guide to getting started can be found at https://piratemc.com/guides/getting-started/.
