There are there sooooo many Faction/Towny/Plugin servers in South Africa. The few of those that are vanilla survival has either (free) teleportation, area protection, or some other feature that takes away from the realism.
(Just to be clear, I do not dislike the area protection feature because I like to grief. I respect other people's property. But somehow it makes the game a bit more exciting if I know that when I build close to spawn there exists a slight chance that I might lose everything. It is also nice to log in and find my house still standing, because then I know the other players did not find it entirely hideous ;D
So I am very glad to have found the CDT server (although, like I say, it wasn't easy).
PS: May we please have a Minecraft category on the forum to post pics and stuff? If not, I guess we can just use this thread or the fb page.
