Server FAQ

Welcome to the John Smith Legacy Minecraft server!

This is a work in progress and may change at any time (I'm not making this up as I go, honest).

Basic rules

It's a server for all Patrons

Bans if banned, appeal on the John Smith Legacy Discord.

Admins and Moderators reserve the right to add additional time depending on the circumstances.

Only appealed bans will be lifted.

Client mods

Here are a list of client side mods (you have to install these on your local computer).

I personally run these to make the server experience a little better, these are not required to play on the server but are nice to have.

These are all Fabric mods (apart from OptiFine).

Due to so many different configurations, you're on your own with setting these up, please test the server without mods if you're having issues to see if it's one of your mods is causing a problem.


No need to explain, this is a must have mod.


Fabric is a lightweight, experimental modding toolchain for Minecraft.

Fabric API

Fabric API is the core library for the most common hooks and intercompatibility measures utilized by mods using the Fabric toolchain

VoxelMap (Fabric version)

VoxelMap is a minimap and worldmap mod that makes a great effort to be accurate to the colours you see in the world (and your resource pack). Display your surroundings, or view the entire (explored) world.


Optifabric a mod that can be used to run Optifine on the Fabric Mod Loader. It does this by taking the official OptiFine mod and making it compatible with the Fabric Mod Loader at runtime.

Light Overlay (Forge/Fabric)

This mod provides users with a NEI-like light overlay (Useful mod to show light levels).


MultiMC is a free, open source launcher for Minecraft.

It allows you to have multiple, cleanly separated instances of Minecraft (each with their own mods, texture packs, saves, etc) and helps you manage them and their associated options with a simple and powerful interface.

While the vanilla launcher is fine for running Minecraft, it can be a pain if you are playing different version on Minecraft, maybe you're testing a snapshots or playing the modded game, give MultiMC a go as it's so much easier to manage.

When playing with different versions of Minecraft and the modded game MultiMC just makes it easier to work with your local files, it also has Forge and Fabric loaders build in, it's my launcher of choice and I've been using for years.


There's a Discord section exclusively for Patrons. - Discord chat server for the Vanilla John Smith Legacy Resource Pack. and Server.

Server Information

Currently running Minecraft 1.17.1 vanilla server (PaperSpigot 1.17.1).

While the server is vanilla, I've decided to add some helpful datapacks to help the server run smoother and make the game more enjoyable for other players.

Currently install datapacks from Vanilla Tweaks - Xisumavoid -


More to come.
