You're probably wondering, what is Echoes?
Echoes is a server built on self-moderation and individuality. It's a community for those without community. However...
It is technically NOT anarchy. There are cities and chronicles of server history, featuring empires and complex alliances between dozens of players.
- Here's an image of Harenas, un-griefed and under construction since April of 2019. It's claimed by a group known as The Republic, the largest of its kind on Echoes.
It's not Towny, either. Builds aren't protected, and griefing is not against the rules.
- Here's a picture of a once-great city called Otes, over 1,000 blocks across at its widest. 80 people lived here at its height.
And it's not plain, vanilla survival. Over the years, our staff have written numerous custom data packs to add bizarre, humorous content to Echoes.
But enough about what it isn't. What IS Echoes?
- There are several custom NPCs with whom you can engage in dialogue and complete dungeons to receive a reward. The most polished one, so far, is Elliot Rodger. Using our proprietary, fully-functional guns data pack, you can help Elliot Rodger navigate his way through a hostile neighborhood to obtain a "gf spawn egg." Here's what some of that experience looks like (more NPCs like Terry A. Davis, WingsOfRedemption, Pregnant Mario, and KingCobraJFS are under development).
- There's an in-game radio achieved using server resource packs. It's all great music, but there are some funny songs too, like Kazakh nationalist music (Жаса, Қазақстан), Big Iron by Marty Robbins, Bosnian war songs, and Last Resort by Papa Roach. In between some of the songs are news stories covering recent events on the server, narrated by a neurotic and delusional robot named Mr. Salt Shaker.
- We've created over a dozen custom dimensions with dungeons and ruins to explore. You can access some of these via commands (like the Skyblock and Superflat survival dimensions), others via easter egg features (like the Vagina Dimension or the Skylands), and still others by interacting with NPCs (for instance, Terry A Davis grants access to the Matrix if you pass a speech check).
- and finally, we've added over 800 custom advancements and goals, some with unique rewards..
We're a community for people and ideas that don't have one. For the last five years our goal has been to create an environment to breed a sense of belonging and creativity through the splash of a halfway-lawless style of gameplay, and embrace of the taboo. We aren't an anarchy world. There is a social contract here; a destination we're wandering towards, and you won't find another community on it's way there alongside us.
We hope you'll join us.
The IP address for our vanilla server is always echoes.fun, version 1.18.2. For our modded server, the IP is always modded.echoes.fun (or echoes.fun:25545), version 1.17.1. For the time being, both Echoes servers are only accessible from Minecraft: Java Edition. From time to time, we will set up novelty IP addresses from which one can access Echoes. Current active ones are as follows:
- obamasex.com AND modded.obamasex.com
We don't sell ranks, accept donations, or sell any merchandise. All promotional and hosting costs are paid by the server owner's personal budget.
If you wish to support the server, all we ask is that you tell your friends to check it out. Maybe even ask them to join our Discord server Or if you'd like some in-game rewards, consider voting for us.
Since this page was last updated, some big changes have taken place on Echoes. They are as follows:
- Some renders of spawn have been made available. There is a 4096x4096 render, a 2560x2560 render, and a 1024x1024 render
- 32 new songs were added to Echoes Radio. Turn on server resource packs & type !radio on upon login to begin listening.
- Several new saltshaker commands like !spaceship were added, as well as some easter egg commands.
- A rule against hacking was implemented. This may be subject to change.
- Echoes: Vanilla also underwent a map reset for 1.18. We don't intend for another map reset for several years to come. Our last map was 5 years old. RIP.
- We've bought several new novelty domains, most notably sexwithkids.com (no, CP is not allowed on Echoes).
- SmugGamer2000, Evooper, and DUKE_G00KEM joined our admin team.
- A three-way chat relay between Echoes: Modded, Echoes: Vanilla, and the Discord server was established.
- Several dimensions on Echoes: Vanilla (Skyblock, Superflat, Cumworld, Aether, and the Vagina Dimension) will soon be opening to gameplay.
- Some custom NPCs are being added. You can fight alongside them in various dungeons (like Elliot Rodger and Nursultan Nazarbayev), or help transport them to safety (like Pregnant Mario and Martin Looter Kang) to receive a reward. Each NPC will have a unique storyline. These are a huge undertaking to implement, but we look forward to sharing more updates about planned NPCs and where to find them in the future. Visit the #suggestions channel on our Discord if you have any ideas for NPCs we can add.
