Server info
This is a survival BUILD server, PvP is disabled except at the arena

Castrovalva was started in October 2011. This is the 4th map reset, ie Ver. 5 of the City.

Why is the City called Castrovalva
From the 19th Season episode ‘Castrovalva’, (5th Doctor, Peter Davison 1981). The url was already taken, it was GM2K’s idea for the domain name of

This is a PG rated server
We have a zero tolerance policy on offensive behaviour, bypassing the chat filter will never be tolerated. On this server we ban first and dont ask questions second.

Stealing, griefing, abusing game bugs, using hacked clients such as Xraying or any other external program to the client will not be tolerated. No matter what you read on the internet X-raying CAN be detected. Your first offence will result in a permanent ban, we have no warning system. You do not get a second chance. Look though the news posts on the web site to read about the banned users or look on the ‘Banned Users’ page for the complete list of users who will never return to this server.

Every single block and item you remove or place as well as objects placed or removed in a chest is logged. ie if you take just one block or item from any chest it will be recorded.

Where do I build?
Anywhere outside of the protected areas, check the live map, protected areas are red. DO NOT build close to someone else unless your ask them first.

/kit to see what starter items you may have.

Do not constantly ask others for free items, if you share items with others they are more likely to help you out in the future

Attention future Tardis owners
DO NOT ask admin or other players  for the items to make a Tardis. This is a survival server, you gather the materials yourself.

Protection from stealing/griefing
Every chest you create is locked automatically. To prevent griefing we use the Protection Stones plugin to create a WorldGuard area.

NOTE: Your Tardis will not travel to the End, the Nether or to the Vortex (check this link as to why the Tardis shouldnt travel to its own interior)

Inactive users
If you have not logged on for four weeks you will be moved back to the guest group. If you wish to rejoin the server, register again and check your email for the verification link, relog and you will be promoted into the builder group again.

VIP’s will not be moved to guest status for as long as your VIP lasts.

There is a separate page for rules.

What will the Admin’s and Mods do for you?
If you mean replacing lost items, building things for you, explaining in detail instructions that are on the web site, then the answer is none of those things.

Admin’s and mods will very promptly take care of  problems with other users such as griefing, stealing, abuse, server problems such as  permissions and anything else related to the operation of the server. This is a survival server and you are expected to do everything yourself, or work with other people to achieve what you want to do. Admin’s and Mod’s WILL ban, without warning, players who grief, steal or for any anti-social behaviour in chat. Bans are permanent and will not be revoked.

How can I get TimeLord, Mod, Admin, OP or creative?
You cant, don’t ask.

Admins & mods play the game the same as you, we do not fly or spawn items in. We also die just as much as anyone else.
