We've released the 1.12 server onto the regular IP a couple days early to prepare for the weekend. We're hoping for a big day! (Can we hit 40+ online!?)
This change will not affect anything other than the IP you are using to connect. All we did was swap the servers, so now you use play.alttd.com to connect to the new 1.12 server, and you use the IP with all the numbers to connect to the old 1.11.2 server.
Friday at midnight EST the old server will be deleted so make sure you have your chests saved by then! We will begin importing people's chests Saturday.
The time has finally come! Please note that tomorrow, Friday the 16th, is your last day to have your chests saved on the 1.11.2 server! If you still need to do this you should start working on it immediately and contact a staff member in-game or on Discord as soon as possible.
Early Saturday morning we will be officially releasing the 1.12 server (right now it is on pre-release). This means that the old world will be deleted and you will no longer be able to access it! After we officially release the server you will be able to connect to the 1.12 server using the regular IP: play.alttd.com. You will no longer need to use the numbers (25567) at the end of the IP to specify which server you want to join.
Please be ready for this update when it comes, and be patient as we work through any final bugs with 1.12. Thank you for your support through all of this!
The 1.12 server is up and running! You can use the IP: play.alttd.com:25567 to join us now. The server is running the official new world so you are welcome to start collecting resources and building your home. Saved chests are NOT available to be spawned in yet, they will be available on June 17th.
Please report any bugs you find immediately, as we are still testing everything!
The old world will be available up until this date so if you need to have your chests saved do it soon! If you do not need to save your chests we advise you do NOT play on the old server. The functionality of the server has been limited so that the new server can run, and the creative world has been copied over already so any new changes won't be saved.

Where were you in March of 2015, over two years ago? Were you on Altitude? Another server? Were you even playing Minecraft then? In March of 2015 Altitude went public for the first time and it was a very different server.Back then, Altitude was a semi-vanilla server with small roots. Intended to be a small, friends-only server, it featured McMMO, land claiming, and basic teleportation - nothing else.
Over the last two years it has grown to something much larger and we've introduced countless new features. But now, it may be time to go back to those roots. For 1.12 we will be resetting our world, and our server. A few major changes will be made and we are both excited and nervous. We understand not everyone will be supportive of these changes, but we feel they are necessary for the Altitude server. You see, Altitude was never supposed to grow to be what it was today, and we want you to see what Altitude originally stood for - vanilla, at its finest, with a focus on community and good times.
Please share with us what your thoughts are on this new idea:
You ever jump into anything full force and spend every waking moment on it only to burn yourself out and abandon it completely for a while? Yeah, I do that with EVERYTHING I find interest in. You should see my car, it's my current phase and I'm sure I've drilled several holes I am sure I will later regret.
That same thing happened to me with Altitude (for like the third time), and I apologize for being away! I realized I was falling a little behind when I noticed we are about a week away from June and the voting page still says "April Goal". I promise you I am still here and I am still taking care of things as best I can. I've heard about the lag spikes, anti-hack acting up, and passive mobs not spawning, and I am fixing all of it as best I can. I have no idea how to fix those darn passive mobs, though, so any help would be appreciated.
I am currently working on gathering a team that will help me maintain the server moving forward. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but it turns out its more work to train a team then to just do the work myself so I've got to gather a lot of motivation to pull it off. I am currently cleaning things up and updating what I can as best I can, so thank you all for your continued support!
- Braydon, owner of Altitude
We're looking for a select few individuals to help manage our Twitter and Facebook pages. As a social media manager you will be responsible for keeping the pages active, entertaining, and help gather a larger audience around them. The majority of your posts will be about the server and the community and your main goal will be gain more followers and likes by interacting with the community in an entertaining way.
Most of the informative posts - such as updates, changes, and promotions - will still be managed by the server owner. You may be responsible for some posts in these categories by request.
If you would like to apply for this position, please fill out an application here.
Have you done the survey that was shared earlier this week on Twitter and Facebook yet? We are listening! Withers, witches, and guardians can now be MyPets!
Thats right, it's time again to share your voice and tell us what we should do to improve the Altitude server. So far you guys have made it clear that you want MyPet tweaked, the Anti-hack toned down, and the main spawn is a bit lacking in detail.
For our first change we are tackling MyPet. During the next reboot (tonight) MyPet will receive a pretty big overhaul. Withers, witches, and guardians will now be claimable as MyPets. You can see the list of mobs that are still blocked, and why, on our website. MyPets will also now have variable health - depending on how much HP the mob normally has in the wild, with a max of 50HP. This means that a level one Rabbit will only have 8HP, while a level one Wither will have 50HP! Finally,each pet will now each have a unique food that they must be fed. Pets will no longer be able to eat any food, which will make caring for some pets much more difficult!
We are already in the process of tweaking the anti-hack to reduce the false positives, and will soon be tackling both the main and skyblock spawns.
If you've joined the server before today you likely spawned in the spawn world with your starter kit, jumped through the survival portal, and found yourself in the wilderness ready to begin your adventure! These days are over, however, and moving forward players will need to go through Origin first, in order to get to the wilderness and get their starter kit!
Starting today, when players first join the server they will have an empty inventory, and find themselves in Origin after going through the survival portal. The first thing they will notice is the sign immediately outside of the town hall, explaining to them how to begin their adventure - board the ship over at the dock. Once at the dock a villager will offer the starter kit, which can be retrieved by the player by right clicking on the villager. They will be randomly teleported into the wilderness once they board the boat.
With these changes inventories will no longer sync between survival and spawn, so if you find yourself in spawn without your inventory - don't worry! If you happened to be one of the unlucky ones to have last logged out in spawn, and now your stuff is gone, just let a staff member know. We will be happy to restore your inventory.
If you haven't seen it already, interactive villagers are now a thing on Altitude! Besides slowly turning Altitude into an RPG server (oops), this is the first step towards our new Jobs & Hiring plugin that is being developed right now! Mentioned on Twitter and Discord, we are currently working on a plugin that will allow players to hire others to complete tasks for them, like collecting 1000 cobble or 1 nether star.
More information coming soon!
After the first week of rebuilding Origin we have formed a good idea of what the new town is going to look like! The boat & docks are back in place, the new (modified) pier has been built, the town hall has been moved back in, and the blacksmith, market, dye shop, and lumber yard are now functional!
Last, but not least, the player shops are being moved completely underground, the underground mall has been widened and fitted with TWO entrances on either side of the town hall, and will be up and running by tomorrow!
We are very excited about the changes to Origin and hope it will make it easier to navigate for everyone.
Altitude is your home for a laid back community survival server. We host survival with land claiming, McMMO, and a dynamic map! We are committed to creating a professional and lag-free server for the best Minecraft community around to relax and get away from everything else.
