Vanilla was launched in 2010 - over time it has evolved into the server it is today. There's a multitude of plugins installed to extend the base game's features; carefully selected and crafted to not take away any aspects of building, crafting, and surviving. 'Survival' is in the name, after all!
Modded was launched in 2012 with the release of Feed The Beast Beta A. Since then we've moved to working on our own custom, community-driven modpacks that aim to capture the feel of the first true "kitchen sink" modpack. We also occasionally run flagship Feed The Beast packs, you will need the Curse Launcher for those.
