monosoho | not so secret saturday alpha minecraft

A long time ago in a server far far away...

...monosoho ran a Vanilla Minecraft server starting back in November 2010 on Alpha Minecraft 1.2.3_04.

Before Alpha 1.2.0 Notch was making continuous changes while devloping Minecraft. Making "Seecret" weekly releases on Fridays with new features that the community had to discover. With Alpha 1.2 and the Halloween Update, these seecret releases stopped with a final Seeecret Saturday release.

"Not So Secret Saturday" (NSSS) is a fork of Minecraft Alpha 1.1.2_01, fixing bugs and adding features both ones proposed by Notch and ones with an 'Alpha vibe'.

We're currently running NSSS Alpha 1.1.11_100 in all its multiplayer glory!

How to play

Once you have NSSS installed, the IP is

Whitelist Requests

The server is in Whitelist Mode, meaning that you will need a valid Mojang Minecraft account, a client with NSSS installed (see below), and be added to the whitelist.

The whitelist is managed via Jyration's Community Discord "Jynation". @monotonehell your Minecraft IGN in the #server-chat channel and ask to be whitelisted. Remember timezones exist so allow up to a day for this to happen.
