I've been with this server for about 1 or 2 years and the entire time I've only had good times. The staff and people are super nice. Everyone has their humor and it is a very exciting community. Sometimes they even have little events where the server gets together has fun and some even earn rewards. This is my favorite server and I never wanna switch.

This server is well rounded, and not too laggy, the banned/restricted items list is few and fair. I would and have reccomended this server to my friends, not only cause of how good it is, but also how friendly and helpful the people and staff are on this server.

Ok, well this is NOT the first time I am leaving a review for Golden Sands. I had to take some personal time off due to the unfortunate cancer terms, almost 2 years of fighting and it has been beat, however the suggested 6weeks recovery was bull, took a lot longer than that.. and I still fee it now and then again.

It was depressing to leave, I had such great hudge base's and a friendly store to boot, was a great contributor to the marketplace. And had a great many friends. Well anyways.. Im back again. An as devoted and grateful as i wa before, they shall not cesce to exist and infact after the way I have been treated by the staff upon my return, some even remembering the good old times, I am happened to have rejoined.

Seems there was some mischief a few months or year, and they had to restart the server, to be honest I am not mad at all.. it gives me an opportunity to restart and rebuild my base, my knowledge, and local friendships alike..

I dont want to talk about lag, as I have not experienced any... oh excuse me, after smashing 1000 blocks 4 of them reappeared.. big woop. i can live with that. the perks you get for voting for a servers are NOT too easy and still require you to earn the end game.

Like I said, i have only just gotten back for a few days or 2, but as memory serves Golden Sands was great for setting up mini games, holiday rewards and other things alike.


The biggest thing to me is the wiki, and it is a verbal one at that. So many players here are willing to share some secrets and tip on how to progress, where as other will assist but let you figure it on your own. there is a great player-base for all gaming levels and professions...


I give Golden Sands MC a 5 Start review, because its what works.


Thank you all

This server is really great mostly due to its rules regarding lag. The lag in other servers made it almost unplayable but here, it is barely noticeable even when 15 people are on. The Admins are also very helpful and are very active on the server!

Me and my buddies have been on the server for a couple days and have had lots of fun. It is all very user friendly. Just need to make sure new people read all the rules off the start. We kinda missed out on that.

I have been a long time player since August 2018. From being a new player to being a staff member, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in this server.

Right from the start the server impressed its player with its low lag and friendly staff members. To top it all off, it has custom recipes to add more enjoyment to gameplay. 11/10 will recommend this server to any new player :))

Helpful Players, Staff, and Community on this server. The server runs at a consistent 19+ tps and any issues are quickly dealt with. Questions about the modpack are quickly answered and due to the non-pvp element, it is very easygoing. Would definitely choose this server if you're looking for a reliable and friendly experience.

One of my favorite servers of all time! Very welcoming community, and the staff and players are very friendly, so long as you follow the rules. Lots of rules & limitations, but they are only put into place to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible.

Golden Sands is one of the best FTB servers I've belonged to. They have custom recipes that I haven't seen elsewhere. There is always someone to help you if you need it and all of the players are nice. An all around great community.

I've been playing on golden sands for a good while now and i have to say, in the simplest of terms, it is a far better environment than any of server ive played on. the structure, staff, social vibe, economy. everything is handled so cleanly, so professionally and it all comes together for an incredibly free, seamless, modded experience. lag is essentially nonexistant, banned items are few and far between. This server not only exhibits some of the best technical and social aspects of smp servers, but also an unparalleled staff.

Golden Sands is the pinnacle of multiplayer minecraft, just sayin.

I donated after reading the rules with less than 5 minutes in game time. Let me elaborate, I'm not a chaotic good person, nor do I have pocket change to fling around. It was clear to me after reading a short few ~10 or so sentences on this bulletin board style wall what kind of server this was. At Golden Sands they prioritize server performance first, player experience first-and-a-half, and everything else second. Now some self-entitled bastard reading this gonna say "well why would I wanna play somewhere I can't build 100x100x100 nuclear reactors for no reason?" and to that I say because it's dumb and you should feel bad because this isn't Ms. Mary-Anne's 4th grade math class and there are dumb questions here like the one you just asked. By prioritizing server performance with hand designed, well thought out, chunk based, self imposed limitations as a result ALL players have a better experience. I cannot even begin to explain my frustration with 99% of FTB servers and they being disgusting sluggish or need to backup every 5 minutes because of how unstable they are. Golden Sands is quite literally that GOLDEN 1% where by just keeping a few simple things in mind you can, well forget feed, Engorge The Beast.

The staffing team is always trying to make the server as lag free as possible while enabling players to obtain most items through playtime or custom recipes. I admire the work they do to keep the server friendly and refreshing. I always have fun on the server whenever I hop on it.

I really enjoy the houses or plots you are able to have at the start of joining. It creates a safe haven for doing things while allowing you to tp between the areas. The ranking system is great too, making the time spent on the server be rewarded with more abilities and items. The daily votes is fun for random prizes.

I have absolutely loved the experience I have had on golden sands. Although I would say the community is a tad less friendly to newer players then other servers, it has been the server with the most experience. With the modified crafting, it has changed the game to a very enjoyable difficulty, it has made things easier and also harder it is posing new challenges to me purely by changing a few recipes. I could not say enough good things about this server

Goldensands is an amazing server to play for and I enjoy every lag free aspect of it. The rules may be strict but they make the server perform so much better and with the staff always being super generous and helpful I couldn't recommend it more.

I really like the Golden Sands minecraft server because it's very familiar. The server have many new crafting recipes, what is very awesome. The staff help if you dont know what to do :D. On the other hand the Server lag sometimes after a entity despawn but it's not that bad.
All in all is the server very good.

When I started playing Infinity Evolved, I didn't know which server to choose. When I stumbled across Golden Sands, I knew that this was the server for me. Nicely built spawn, happy, and understandable staff, and just a good community to have fun and play the modpack.

Hi, I’m 2scoopsrice and I’ve been playing on this server for a while now. I’m not a veteran by any means, but I do enjoy playing on this server and will keep playing on it. This server has many good traits, but it also has a few things I feel are pretty restricting, but I’ll admit that a lot of these are probably just out of selfishness. One of my favorite things about the server is the ranks. There are two different kinds of ranks, ones based on playtime and ones based on purchasing like normal. I feel the playtime ranks are really smart because as you rank up, you gain access to some items that are potentially more dangerous, or have potential to cause lag, while on other servers these would just be banned outright to prevent people that have just joined to be able to craft a gigantic mob grinder that destroys the server. The purchasable ranks I don’t have too much of an opinion of, they generally just give you a new kit and some items. But what makes them wonderful is the fact that you can purchase them in game without ever spending a dollar, as you get a currency when you vote. The server also provides free lava and water for your generators, and a mineworld to mine and ender quarry in that resets every few months, so the overworld doesn’t become blotchy and disgusting. Now, back to the restricted and banned items. Again, this complaint is most likely because of selfishness, and is for the greater good of the server, but there’s certain restrictions on key parts of gameplay that make it difficult to progress. I reccommend building your base off of chunks, because they’ll become super important when making the technical aspects of your base. There’s heavy restrictions on things like mob grinders, such as only being able to use diamond spikes to kill, building your entire mob grinder in one chunk, and being only able to use limited amounts of cursed earth. My point is some things that would be easy usually are made difficult and obnoxious by the restrictions in place to reduce lag, which I understand as it’s a pretty large server. Another thing I’m kind of toxic about is that there’s not set in stone rules, and each staff member has different standards and can punish you in whatever way they deem fit. For example, one staff member might be totally okay with swearing, while another hates it and might mute or ban you for it. This system usually works out well, as most of the rules are common sense, but sometimes you will get disciplined for something you didn’t even know was wrong. That’s my opinion of the server, mostly positive but with some negative bits in there too. Overall, I would reccomend playing on the server, but don’t be surprised when you can’t do anything you want, and have to work to do good.

Hi 2scoopsrice,

Thank you for your review! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us.

It isn't common to 'discipline' someone for something that isn't hurting the server or its players in some way. If that happened to you in the past we are sorry for that. Also our staff always try to draw one line when it comes to following the rules.

You mention swearing - it is allowed but you might be asked to "tone it down" if you go over the top. We think that's part of "common sense" since there are also young people playing on our server. The worst that can happen to you is a temporary mute.

We still hope you have fun on our server!
