Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

A new NPC has been added to Spawn. This villager is offering many decorative heads in exchange for vote cookies. These trades will only be available for a short period so I highly encourage you to check what’s on offer and stock up on anything you like.

Trades include Santa heads, Baubles, Presents, a Snow Globe, Christmas Pudding and more.

Vote cookies are generated every time a player votes for the server on selected Minecraft Directories. This helps us to remain high on the listings and attract more new members. Each time you vote you get one cookie and another cookie is handed to a random online player. More details can be found on the “Support Us” page, including links to where you can vote.

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.
