Mechanics that change terrain and chat. The terrain is bounded, the Nether dimension replaced with overworld Nether biomes. Unless a bed spawn location is set players spawn in a random location. Chat is range restricted unless a chat group is specified[clarification needed]. A limited number of blocks prone to cause lag can be placed within a single chunk. Blocks that are frequently used to identify settlements by x-rayers are automatically hidden from sight unless the player comes near them.

Mechanics that change how resources are gathered and refined. Items can be efficiently produced using factories. Factories and crops are required to enchant items. Crop growth time is dependent upon biome and ores are found in dynamically generated veins. Players can trade using chests as shops. Many tasks can be performed by scripted bots.
