Survival 1.20 Impending Release

Greetings LemonCloud!

We're pleased to announce our biggest update yet; after 500+ days, it's time for a fresh start for Survival. Here are some key aspects of this update:

  • A fresh beginning for all players
  • Revolutionised world generation, for all dimensions
  • Merging both servers and communities into one
  • Brand new technology that can handle hundreds of players in the same world with zero lag
  • Feature updates including over 1000 quests, a new economy, and more

A Fresh Start

On Saturday, 12th August, Survival will relaunch with a fresh new server. We expect to open the server at 8PM BST / 3PM EST. Click here to see what time it is in your time zone. The countdown is on!

When the reset happens, most of your progressional data will start over: builds, in-game money, claim blocks, vote rank, skill levels, inventory, ender chest, vaults, homes, etc. This reset gives all players a fresh start and the opportunity to start on a level playing field.

Don't worry; you'll keep: ranks, kit access, titles, and any other permanent access packages you've bought from the store.

World Generation

This update brings fresh 50k x 50k worlds with new world generation. 85+ new biomes, castles, new villages, volcanoes, and so much more!


The new worlds are already live on our map website, so click here to check it out and plan where you want to live!


This exciting change brings both Survival communities together, thanks to new server software allowing us to host hundreds of players in the same world.

Don't panic! When the servers merge, you'll keep all your ranks and other permanent paid-for goodies. Here's everything you need to know:

  • On Survival, you'll automatically have your highest tier rank from the old Survival1 or Survival2 server
  • If you had a rank on the other server, you can claim it back as a rank note item by typing /claim
  • Everything else (pets, disguises, particles, fly and titles) will be automatically unlocked. If you had any of these on both Survival1 and Survival2, you can retrieve them in item form from /claim

So, for example, if you have the Monarch rank on both Survival1 and Survival2, you'll have it on the new Survival server and can claim the second Monarch rank as a physical redeem item that you can sell, trade, or give to a friend!


Survival now runs on a new software called Folia that adds regionised multithreading to the server. This means we can technically handle hundreds of players in the same world easily, compared to previously, where the server would struggle when approaching 100 players.

For anyone interested in the tech, we highly recommend reading this blog post from a test event:
