Europe GRE Tunnel

Hi European Vanilla High players!

Since the move of Vanilla High to the OVH datacenter in Beauharnois, Canada, European players were reporting a higher than usual latency. Which is normal because we were previously hosted in one of the OVH datacenters in France. In an effort to provide a better connection to players in Europe, a test GRE Tunnel has been set up to cater for you. Please use eu.vanillahigh.net for the time being and help test this new GRE tunnel.

As a reminder, players in the Asia-Pacific region can use asia.vanillahigh.net as a means to perhaps get better connectivity.

mc.vanillahigh.net points to the server itself, hosted physically in Canada, eh.

Vanilla High 3.0 Launch!

 

The 3rd Vanilla High map, dubbed Vanilla High 3.0 has been launched January 20th 2017. Welcome all players to a fresh new start for everyone! The adventure will be treacherous, deaths multiple but the rewards are plenty!

We’re keeping the same server rules and have some minor gameplay changes over the previous map

  1. From Survival, it is not possible to use the TP features of the Command Book unless a player has full health.
  2. There is no more free sheep spawner at spawn. Players start with 20 cooked chicken in their inventory and 6 wool to help them start their adventure
  3. The minimum recommended build distance is now 15,000 blocks (X and Z added)
  4. The Nether market and Escrow programmes have been discontinued.
