It has been half a millennia since World War X. X was the war that ended all wars. It brought civilization to extinction with destruction so fierce that it wiped out most of humanity and all of its creations. Nothing remained in the aftermath except a barren wasteland that could not sustain life. Now, after half a millennia, life has come back. Grasses and trees grows once again. Forest and jungles flourishes once more, but not to the potential it once had. Only a few seeds survived the chaos, enough just to maintain life. The animals, they barely survived total extinction. A world that was once filled with animals, as far as the eyes can see from the heavens above to the seas below, is now reduced to patches of stragglers. The same could be said about the human survivors. Very, very few actually survived the war. And of those who did, many suffocated from the disease of the land or the fallout that lingered, resulting in the loss of knowledge that had been gained over millenniums. But it was the result of that knowledge that plagues the very world as it is right now. Scientists were able to develop 'dark soldiers' that would rise from the shadows, animal-infused warriors, and mythical teleportation beings. They created worlds to host these creatures to use in their war, but as the war broke out and chaos ensued, the fate of these creatures became forever sealed. With lack of care, these beings devolved over time and using their abilities, were able to cross between worlds. It’s no longer safe, but what other result could have come from such a horrific war…
There is hope though. During the chaos of the war, several cyro chambers were hidden away in hope that these survivors would once again restore the world to its former glory. As you awake from your slumber, your goal is to survive. Survive as long as you can. Find others who have awaken just like you and survive together. You will be limited in your resources, you are back in the stone ages. Work together and build an empire. This is merely the beginning of rebuilding civilization again...
Welcome to AutoCraft Empire, where we strive to automate the world with the Stone Age tools we have. Since the beginning, the server has had one goal in mind, to build a community. It was hard to do so as many people were from different parts of the world. Everyone had their own time zones, their own play time, their own interest. After reviewing what the original goal were, it's now clear what must be done: we need to build an empire!
The map has been reset, the plugins have been refreshed, the rules have changed, and the world has been reborn. No longer will it be about building bases and hiding from other members who potentially can kill you, it's about coming together to build an empire. Granted, you don't have the power of modded to make machinery for a fully automated world, but every empire has it's start.
With that said, we’re a whitelisted, vanilla server with an emphasis on automation. Our goals are to create an active community, build an empire, and have fun. We're from all over the world and our vison is to provide a place where players can come together to play and build. There are rules we follow, but it's to keep the server fun for everyone.
If this sounds like the server for you, to play and grow with, apply for our whitelist here !

This is a friendly community server. Follow these rules and we’ll all have a great time. Breaking the rules will lead to banning. We try to avoid that as much as we can, but if you break the rule, you pay the price. Unlike other SMP servers, our goal is to play and share everything together in building our empire. The rules are put in place to give a sense of direction to reach our goal. Anything not stated in the rule is up for discussion.
Follow all server rules.
Always be respectful of each other. Everyone here is expected to behave like adults and any disagreements are expected to be handled as such.
No building of personal bases. The theme is to build an empire and work together. All builds must contribute to the empire. Building a quick starter hut is permitted at the beginning, but should only serve as a basic temporary shelter. The empire will have a builder's quarter where each player will have their own room.
Although all items will be shared as a community, the no griefing/raiding policy still stands. Each builder will have their own quarter where they can store items as deem as personal items. These items will be respected as personal.
Do not grief someone's build. It is asked that everyone be tasteful in what they build. The lore we chose to follow is open for interpretation, but the builds we build should allow for the expansion of the empire.
If someone has a build that you would like removed or changed, ask them first.
No cheating/hacking. Using any mods that gives you an advantage over other players is not allowed.
No excessive offensive language, harassments, threats, racism, or hate speech of any kind.
No advertising or spamming.
You are responsible for anything that happens on your account (forum or minecraft in-game name). It does not matter if it was you, a sibling, or a hacker that violated the rules.
Don’t go randomly killing people. PvP is enabled for the sake of friendly competition, not to aggravate players who do not want to fight.
If you would like to borrow something from someone's chests, ask. Just because items are for the community, doesn't mean you take whatever you need. They may need it for their projects.
Do NOT ask for rank/staff positions or OP.
Pranks are allowed as long as it doesn't involve griefing/raiding or anything that causes frame rate loss. Use your judgement and common sense.
No selling in-game items for real money. This will result in a ban for both players.
Mechanisms and farms are allowed. However, you may be asked to modify your build if there is evidence that it causes lag.
Be considerate in spawning withers - you are responsible for all damage done.
Floating trees are annoying - chop down the entire tree.
If you've been griefed, submit a report on forum. Don't whine in chat.
Please keep in mind that we try our best to run a fair server so if you are found to be breaking any of our rules, especially our no-griefing and no-cheating rules, we will not be afraid to ban you. We also want to keep this a drama-free server so please take any arguments you have to private chat or elsewhere. If you cause too much drama in the server we will not be afraid to ban you.
If you have been griefed, or have any questions, concerns, or problems with the server, you can message any staff members at any time. We want to make sure that the server remains a fun place to play.
