History

Devoted Hell began as a late night idea by Convoy. He put together a launch trailer with no real intentions for a server.

The server was announced on December 28, 2020[2] and launched on January 15, 2021[1]

World

Devoted Hell takes place entirely in The Nether. There are only five biomes: Nether Wastes, Soul Sand Valley, Crimson Forest, Warped Forest, Basalt Deltas. The world height is 256m including bedrock, twice as high as the vanilla Nether (128m).

The world is divided into four shards: Asmodeus, Brimstone, Cerberus, and Deracinate, often abbreviated to just A, B, C, and D. The shards are arranged in a straight line starting with Asmodeus in the south and ending with Deracriante in the north. Each shard has a size of 4096x4096m (the size of 8x8 Minecraft regions). You can see which shard you are in on the player list (press Tab).

Shards have different difficulties due to their HiddenOre rates and reinforcement configurations. If you die in a shard and haven't set your spawn in that same shard, you'll randomly spawn in that shard. Pearls cannot be moved between shards.

Lobby

The lobby is a separate world with a tutorial, quests, and a PvP training area.

To return to the lobby, use the /lobby command.

 
Layout of the shards.

Asmodeus

Asmodeus is the starting shard. It ranges from z=+4096 to z=0, sharing a world border with Brimstone.

The starting shard has no Diamond or Ancient Debris, and Towny is installed on this shard. All other ores have the worst spawn rates, and the growth rates for plants is the worst out of all the shards as well.

HellCorp is located in this shard.

Brimstone

Ranges from z=0 to z=-4096. This shard was the least active during the first few weeks of the server, with much of its player activity being travelers to other shards.

Heck is located here.

Cerberus

Ranges from z=-4096 to z=-8192. It was the most active shard during the first weeks of the server, most likely due to it being a happy medium between difficulty, ore spawns, crop growth rates, and the like.

Nations include Alexandria, Arcation, Harrow, Inferno, and Mercer.

Deracinate

The hardest shard. Ranges from z=-8192 to z=-12288.

Nations include Carbon and Helios.

Plugins

In addition to the typical Civ plugins, Devoted Hell uses several plugins that are typically not found on other Civ servers.

A 1-minute overview of the most important Civ plugins can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UndYsun5Nwg

AutoReplant

Enabled by default, if you don't want to use it, feel free to turn it off in /config. When breaking fully grown crops, will take a seed from your inventory and use it to replant. It works on Nether Wart, Wheat, Potatoes, Carrots and Beetroots. The delay is set to 5 ticks to replant.

BetterChairs

Right click a stair block to sit on it.

CraftEnhance

Some items can be crafted in new ways.

  • 1 Bowl + 1 Crimson Fungus + 1 Warped Fungus => 1 Mushroom Soup (similar to the vanilla Mushroom Soup recipe)
  • 1 Coal => 1 Black Dye

EssenceGlue

EssenceGlue gives you "Souls", a special item that each player can only earn a fixed amount of every day.

Souls are used in high tier tech tree recipes, such as making Netherite tools or XP.

There are two ways to earn souls:

  • Play on the server for 30 minutes. Type /streak to see when you'll receive souls next.
  • Vote using /vote

Gold Block Elevators

If you jump while standing on a Gold Block and there is another Gold Block above you, you will teleport up to the first Gold Block above you.

If you crouch while standing on a Gold Block and there is another Gold Block below you, you will teleport down to the first Gold Block below you.

Jobs Reborn

Jobs Reborn lets you level up in various professions for doing activities in the game. The experience can be redeemed for items in the Jobs shop.

  • /jobs browse shows the different jobs and how to earn points.
  • /jobs stats lists your personal stats. Clicking on each stat in that text will display more - how to level, what levels how much, etc.
  • /jobs shop opens the shop interface.

Strider Breeding

Right click Striders with a Compass to see their stats. You can breed them similar to horses to improve their speed & health stats. The slowest striders should be their vanilla speed and the fastest striders on lava can match a max speed horse.

Towny

Towny is enabled in the starter shard (#Asmodeus).

Bastion

Bastions are enabled, but only have a size of 1x1m.

Citadel

Reinforcement strength differs in each shard (A/B/C/D).

Type Health (A) Health (B) Health (C) Health (D) Mature Time Acid Time
Nether Brick 40 30 20 10 5 min 20 min
Iron 200 175 150 125 30 min 6 h
Gold 400 350 300 250 1 h 12 h
Diamond 1500 1400 1300 1200 24 h 24 h
Netherite 4000 3666 3333 3000 48 h 48 h

ExilePearl

Pearls cannot be moved across shards. Pearls can be acquired via Piglin trading.

FactoryMod

HiddenOre

The rate at which you find ores depends on which shard you're in and your y-level. More difficult shards have higher ore spawning rates. Each ore also has a certain range of y-levels where it spawns more often.

Mining Notes are special paper items that give information about the ore spawning. They drop randomly while mining. Example: Diamond Mining Note 1A: Minimum Y level is 1
