Land Claiming
Close collapsible

When claiming land you mark out an area of land that will be yours. The land will be protected and only you can place or break blocks. Doors, chests and any items you interact with will also be locked.

You can trust other players on your claim and give them access, this is useful when playing with friends or a team.

Here is a basic video on how land claiming works:


  • To trust a player on your claim, stand on the claim and type: /trust (username)
  • To trust a player on all of your claims use: /trustall (username)
  • To remove trust from a player on your claim, stand on the claim and type: /untrust (username)
  • To remove trust from a player on all your claims use: /untrustall (username)


Villager Behavior
Close collapsible

Please note that villager behavior slightly differs on SA Crafters.

Villagers are a huge strain on the server, many servers disable them completely. We still allow villagers and villager trading halls.

When you have a villager in a 1x1 area, their AI will be disabled. This is to allow trading halls. When making iron golem farms use a larger area than 1x1 to store your villagers. Once the villager is not in a 1x1 area their AI will be enabled again.

This allows us to let players use villagers as they wish while at the same time reducing their load on the server and keeping the experience enjoyable.

Treasure Maps
Close collapsible

Treasure maps cause many issues for servers. They are disabled to prevent major issues. Too many chunks get loaded which can bring the server to a standstill. To keep the experience enjoyable we have decided to disable them.

Stacked Raid Farms
Close collapsible

Please note that there are known issues with stacked raid farms. This is not a SA Crafters issue but a widespread issue on multiplayer Minecraft servers.

Please note that raid farms may not work as they should or may not work at all.

Mobs & Entity Limits
Close collapsible

Mobs are limited to 30 per chunk or per group.

This is to preserve a lag-free environment. In Minecraft, when there are a large number of mobs in one chunk or group it puts a lot of strain on the server and risks degrading the performance of the server. We prefer to keep our server running at a constant 20 TPS.

This limit applies to animals, villagers, and monsters, any over the limit will be automatically removed.

Entities such as item frames are limited to 30 per chunk or per group.

Entities that are over the limit will automatically be removed.

You cannot have a group of villagers larger than ~30.

Map Size
Close collapsible

The current map size is 10 000 x 10 000 and applies to the overworld, nether and the end.

The map size will be extended in the near future.
