The Survival Guide

Welcome to The Survival Guide

A guide made for those looking for a way to kick off their adventure in TheFakeWorld Survival

Welcome to TheFakeWorld! In this guide you will learn the major and quite a few minor features of our Survival server. Hopefully this guide will teach you all the basics you need to know to enjoy your experience on our server!

Section 1 : How to get started

So, you have loaded into the survival spawn for the first time, here you can find many of our server warps, NPCs, information, and even how to get to this guide. Right ahead of you at /spawn is the opening out into the Spawn Jungle. There is a protection region around this area so we can keep it looking nice, but if you continue out further until the text on your screen displays that you left spawn, you can finally get to the buildable area.

If you would like to build next to spawn you can, but because we have a massive 2,000,000 x 2,000,000 world, you can find endless places to build by using the command /rtp, it will randomly teleport you to a place in the world in which you can explore to find a great place to build your new home.

Once you have been exploring for a while using the /rtp command and you find the perfect place to settle down, the next step is to run the command /sethome [homename] so if you happen to go away from the area you found for your house, you can return to it at a later point in time. Once as you have done that, you have two options to gather resources, the first is to clear your area to prepare for your house, so deforesting the area around your house so you can build it. The other is to go to /warp resource. In this place, you can mine anything to your heart's content and you can also /rtp as well if you need specific biome based resources. Once as you run /warp resource, you will be teleported to a building and all you have to do is walk in and wait a couple seconds.

Elite Mobs will spawn in the resource world which will be based on the armour you are wearing and tools you have in your inventory, if you are just starting out, they will be low level and have few abilities, the higher tier armour, the harder they get, but the better the reward. In the resource world, you can also find custom structures that may contain really good items.

Once as you have collected the resources for your house you can start on building it, making it the way you want. Now when you place chests and/or inventory based items, they will lock so no one else can open them (If you would like to know how to configure your locked inventories, you can read this guide)

Now that you have built your house, I would recommend claiming the area around it so no one, other than the people you invite. You can claim land by running /land. I would recommend the TNT plot since it is decently large for 15K, and you also start with 20K so it is affordable!

If you run /land after claiming your region, you GUI should then look like this, you can invite people under the steve head, set your land spawn under the ender pearl (you can teleport back to this by doing /land home), and see your region border by clicking the Experience Bottle. Eventually, you will have access to a Command Block that will let you change settings like mob spawning and snowfall.

Now you might be wondering about the ways to earn money on this server, currently, there are a few main ways :

Jobs : Jobs are ways of earning money by completing certain tasks that your job says in its description. For example, mining can earn money by breaking stone, ores, and placing rails. You can join jobs by running /jobs join, this will bring up a GUI, and all you have to do is choose and click on the job you would like to be in.

Chest Shops : You can earn money by setting up chests shops for people to buy from. This way is really easy, but not the best since you don;t know when people will buy from you. There is an already existing guide here about them.

The Auction House : Here you can sell items using /ah sell [amount] with the amount being how much you want to sell it for. The listing will go up to /ah for them to be seen by other players.

Trading : You can also trade with players using /trade [playername] for safe transactions that don't include throwing items on the ground or no money given in return for an item. This is not a great way to earn money since you do have to ask players but is definitely a way to sell valuables.

Crates and Voting : Whenever you vote on the server you will get a vote crate key and a vote token (that can be used in /vshop). You can use this crate key at /warp crates and have a chance at anything that is in it, including monetary rewards. Also, rare items can come out that you might be able to sell to other players looking for them. You can access the links for voting by running the command /vote

Section 2 : Voting, ABC ranks, McMMO, Towns, and Donator Ranks

Voting and ABC ranks : As mentioned right above this, whenever you vote, you will receive a Vote Crate Key and Vote Token. Along with this, every time you vote you will also get one point closer to your next rank. You can look at how many votes it takes to get to your next rank along with the perks each rank gives you here. This is a free way to earn all of the perks that donators can get other than some cosmetic ones. Since our ABC system also strives to continue improving, you can also suggest new things to be added to it by going to the Discord and suggesting in #suggestions

mcMMO : This plugin that we have added to our server provides a boost to your normal tools and skills. They go very well in hand with our Jobs plugin in that, at the same time you earn experience and money in your job, you will also gain experience in your McMMo levels relating to it. Such as if you had chosen the mining job, you can mine away getting higher and higher levels for both of them, not only earning more money the more you mine but also doubling and even tripling your item drop. You can also unlock abilities that can make you mine faster, place quicker, or even do more damage. ABC ranks can also increase how fast you earn experience and how fast your ability cooldowns reset. If you would like to know more about McMMo you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.

Towns : On our server, we have a towns system where you can get involved in a town or create your own to earn rewards like tokens and town exclusive crate keys. This is a great place to build a starter house and interact with the community before you go and build your own base. This can also help you gain relationships on the server that may help you in the long run. If you are interested it knowing how to start your own town or would like to know more about the towns system on TheFakeWorld you can visit /warp towns or look at this guide.

Donator Ranks : Our Donor Ranks are ranks you can purchase from our store at Our donator ranks are a way to support the server and are also not necessary for you to play since all of the perks except some cosmetic perks are available using our ABC rank system. If you would like to look at a list of what Donator Perks you get for each rank you can go here. Our server relies on these donations to keep running with the kindness of players like you. If you have any more question about donator perks you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.
