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!

I love just about everything the server has to offer. The staff are very friendly and happy to help those who need it, and do a very good job managing the server. There is no lag on the server (unless caused by a player, but that is quickly resolved), and I love not having to worry about anyone griefing or raiding my builds. I give the server 10/10 of my cookies cause I can't really find any negatives about it. :D

this Is the best infinity evolved server I have ever played on. The community is vibrant and very welcoming. Staff are hard working and always willing to answer any question you may have about the server. Some mods are restricted or banned, but they are very good reason as to not cause lag or completely destroy the server. In conclusion this server is LIT.

Love the warp gather so you can go wild for does ores.At the end of the day those mods on this server are doing something right if i keep coming back time and time again.

So first off, I have never played modded Minecraft before so getting started with all the different mods (and there sure are a bunch) was quite the experience when i first joined the server. First impression was being quickly greeted by almost everyone online which was awesome because I truly felt welcomed. The staff was very helpful in getting me started when it came to questions about the different mods, rules, ranks, etc. Even some of the players helped me out as well. Did I mention they have custom recipes for a bunch of items they hand made?! How cool is that!

Fast forward some months now and I'm still loving the server! Everyone that joins is usually super friendly and ends up sticking around from what I've seen. Mini games are hosted usually every Sunday as well as just randomly beimg hosted with prizes being given out to the winners. I've made a ton of friends whether it be staff or just players and I really appreciate all of them.

The rules MAY seem a bit on the strict side like others here have mentioned BUT there is a methos to the madness. Lag? Nonexistent which is crazy considering that the server has to handle all the different mods at the same time. Economy could use a little bit working on but it's a tricky thing to get right and I understand that but honestly it's at a decent spot right now. No afk machines makes sense when you realize a lot of the ranks based around your in game playtime reward you with access to certain items that would otherwise just be unfair if you had from the beginning.

Overall, I would like to thank Mudge and honestly just all the staff for all the hard work and time they put in to make the server what it is. After all they dont get paid to be online and help everyone but instead they're just genuinely amazing people. Whether it be behind the scenes or online answering a stupid question about something that has been answered a million times before, they are what make the server what it is. So come check it out for yourself!

This server is by far the best FTB server I have ever played on, in fact it is the ONLY FTB server I play on because no other server comes close.

I've with Golden Sands for over a year now and I've had a blast. The community is fantastic and the staff are incredibly attentive when it comes to player feedback.

Server rules are very fair, and help keep the server running optimally for everyone. Mod selection is great so you'll never run out of things to do.

Now, there is one VERY important rule that you MUST follow if you are to be an active and productive member of the server:

Please no eat Hermal
