Basic server information

Welcome to Minecraft Breakdown! This is a 100% custom modified server using Flan's Mod - that means that we deliver an unique gameplay experience you have never seen before. To ensure you enjoy all the features this server brings please read the following guide carefully.
Please also remember to read the server rules listed here!

Minecraft Breakdown is an open world pvp-pve survival faction server with modern weapons and vehicles. That means the gameplay consists of: Fighting other players in the wilderness, gathering money and respect, building a base to secure your items and raiding others bases.
Everyone of these aspects will be explained in detail later. First of all let's answer some questions you might have:

How should I start?

Do NOT jump right into PVP by leaving the safezone. You will be slaughtered by merciless pros instantly.
The walls around the military base indicate the safe zone borders.

Instead, you should start with farming or PVE. At spawn you can find teleporter signs that allow you to leave the safezone in different ways. The same destinations are available from the respawn menu after you died, so have an explanation here:

Where should I spawn?

When you die you can pick your respawn point. Everyone has it's own features:

Safe zone:

Here you cannot be attacked by others. Also you have access to certain features like the shop, crafting tools, a runway and a lot more. You can exit the safe zone by using the entrances of the safe zone wall or by using one of the teleport signs next to the main exit. You will spawn without any items.

War zone:

The area surrounding the safe zone is called the war zone. Here players are trying to kill each other for items and respect - so only go there if you are looking for trouble. You will spawn with a pistol and some basic tools.


The further you walk away from the safe zone the less players you will meet and at some point you will be able to build. This area is called wilderness and is infinite. As you walk through the world you will find roads and buildings that are generated by the server. Those towns, cities or military compounds contain valuable loot that respawns frequently. But watch out: Buildings and roads are protected by evil survivor bots called NPCs. With their guns they are an interesting target in terms of loot but also a very serious danger. Never underestimate them!
You will spawn with basic farming tools and a pistol.

PVP arena:

This place is extremely dangerous but can be profitable. It's located far from spawn and your only way of leaving is going to the extraction point. On the way you can loot buildings and fight NPCs. Also expect other players trying to steal your stuff, especially towards the extract. You will spawn with basic fighting equipment and a compass that points towards the exit.

What should I do now?

How to get money and respect

Money and levels are required to purchase items in the shop. For guns, vehicles and advanced items you need to be a certain level (like in the enchanting xp system). You can raise your level by farming respect points (RP).
You can get RP by killing players (the reward depends on their level, killstreak and some more factors), selling items at the shop (10% of the item's sale price) and other things like completing tasks, killing NPCs, raiding bases and playing minigames.
When selling items at the shop you will get money - usually up to 50% of the sale price.

Base building

To make sure your base is as safe as possible follow this guide carefully. Also note that you need to be part of a faction to have a base. If you are not, create one with '/f create'.
To mark a location as your base you have to place your faction spawn flag within the base border (15,000 blocks around spawn). You can buy that from the 'Base Utilities' trader at spawn.
The base protection works for each chunk (a 16x16 block region). That means as you place the spawn flag, the chunk the flag is in will be marked as your territory. In this area enemies can't build or break blocks, set their own base or lock chests. But they will be able to attack your base with explosives during a specific time window each day.
If you click your base flag you will see a time called 'raid session'. This determines a two hour window in which your base is vulnerable to attacks.
You can change that time from the settings button (after clicking the base flag). Make sure to choose a time when you are usually online. If a player attacks, you want to be there to defend your base.
Don't think it's smart to choose a time in the middle of the night - your enemies may be in a different time zone or just stay up late. And then you won't be there to defend.
Note that if you change the raid time or you have just set up the flag, your base will be unprotected for at least 24 hours. This ensures that the system cannot be abused.

After you placed your flag you may expand the territory. To do so you can type '/f claim' while standing on a neighboring chunk.
Another important aspect is how to build your base. Since enemies can destroy blocks using explosives, it's important to know which materials you should use for your buildings. Most explosives can destroy multiple blocks like dirt, sand and stone.
That's why you want to use custom base blocks (check the Base Utilities trader at spawn). These blocks have more complex damage properties and need multiple detonations to break. For example, a steel block needs 5-10 C4 explosives (placed and detonated individually) to break. Base blocks have a different texture depending on the sustained damage. To fix a block you simply need to replace it.
One more safety aspect of your base is the possibility to lock your doors and chests. To do that, you can buy a code lock item at the shop. After you right-clicked the chest with it you will be able to enter a 4 digit pin which you can use to lock and unlock the chest. So as soon as a chest has a code lock added everyone is able to press the lock/unlock key on their keyboard while looking at the chest. Whoever types in the correct pin will be able to access the chest. The same feature is also available for doors, buttons and levers. Steel doors have integrated codelocks.
While building your base keep in mind to making it raiders as hard as possible to get in. Use hard materials and a lot of code locks. Also try to hide your base and only invite people to your faction you can trust.
The most valuable part of your base is the flag. If it gets stolen, raiders will retrieve the money on your faction bank. Also, they will be able to initiate a base takeover and lockpick your doors and chests.
To get notified about raids when offline, you need to activate the raid notification upgrade from the base flag and connect your discord account. To do that, simply join our discord server, type 'connect ' in #bot-commands and follow the instructions of our bot.

Base raiding

If you spotted a base that looks like its worth a raid you have to do some preparation. First, find out how good it's buildings are protected, how good it is equipped and how many members it got. You also need to know the raid session. Only during that time the base can be damaged. It can be displayed by typing '/f info '.
Next, you will need some tools to break in. All explosives can damage bases but they vary in efficiency. C4 is the most effective tool, but it doesn't have splash damage and has a short range. E.g. HE tank shells, hydra rockets or bombs are very effective to sustain damage from a distance.
You might also bring lock picks to open doors and chests and an outpost spawner to have a spawnpoint nearby.
The raid itself should be planned carefully. The base owners are most likely online or will join as soon as you start the raid. Our Discord bot may inform owners as soon as you kill a member or detonate explosives inside their base territory!
Teamwork is key! Try to split up for designated tasks like raiders, spotters and pilots - maybe choose someone to get in a sniper position. The raiders will concentrate on finding the weakest spot to place explosives and gathering loot from chests. Spotters will cover the raiders and the base. Your priority is to destroy bed respawns and steal the flag. The alarm might attract other players, so be prepared for counter raiders.
You can initiate the flag steal by left-clicking it. This will take time so set up a defense. You must not die or move away while stealing the flag.
When the flag is stolen, you can start lockpicking chests/doors and emptying (and blowing up) factories. Note that starting a lockpick will announce your position to the entire server.

After stealing the base flag you can place your own flag to start a base takeover. If you manage to protect that flag for 24 hours, you will gain full control over the base. Your faction can have multiple taken over bases, but you won't be able to teleport to them. Nevertheless, they are a great way to store loot or operate factories far away from your main base.


Factories are an efficient way to make money. You can craft factories with parts found in npc cities.
