Getting Started Guide
This guide is for new and long-time players to discover all the features available on CatCraft.
Selecting a Realm 🌎
Welcome to CatCraft! To get started, you can choose your Realm. All Realms are the same, but each has its unique overworld, nether and end worlds, and different opening dates. The older the Realm, the easier it will be to get started since the global market is cheaper, meaning you can get items and blocks for fewer diamonds. The newest Realm is an excellent choice if you prefer to stay up-to-date. Whatever Realm you decide to play, you will surely have a great time!
Starting your Adventure 🪵
After entering your Realm of choice, you'll find yourself at spawn. To get to the main overworld, head straight ahead until you see the wilderness portal. You can travel through this portal to teleport to the main Overworld or type the command /wild and select the Overworld option on the left.
On CatCraft, we have two Overworlds: the main Overworld and the Resource world. The main Overworld is where you'll build your base, farms, and anything you don't want to be reset. The Resource world is for collecting resources - this world resets every two months. It's handy to remember that the two Overworld's work in opposite timezones, so during the day in the main Overworld, you can build, and when it's night, you can travel to the Resource world, where it will be the day. You can continue collecting resources without worrying about hostile mobs.
After you have teleported to the main Overworld, it's time to start your adventure! To get yourself settled, why not try collecting wood? Once you have a good amount of wood, you can craft iron tools to make your life easier. Once you have your tools, it might be a good idea to build a tiny house to stay in until you start exploring!
TIP: Did you know that you can instantly chop the bottom log of a tree to chop the entire tree at once? Also, if you sneak while mining ores, you can immediately mine the whole ore vein! Good luck, and happy exploring!
Congratulations! You have just built your first house. Now it's time to make sure it's secure. Claiming your land will prevent other players from building or taking things from your base, which is against the server rules. To claim your land, follow the easy steps in our claiming guide. You can find it right here.
Setting a home 🏠
To instantly teleport to your home, you can set two homes (by default) and one bed home. Setting a home allows you to return to your base without the need of travelling. Set a home using the command /sethome [Homename] For example, to set a home called base, use the command /sethome base Then to teleport to your base, type /home base
If you want to be able to quickly get back to your base, you can set up to two homes and one bed home. Setting a home is super easy! All you have to do is type /sethome [Homename] into the chat. For example, to set a home called 'base', type /sethome base. And then, to teleport back to your base, just type /home base. Simple as that!
Oh no! You died! Don't worry, you can get back to your last location with ease. Just type /back in the chat, and you'll be right back where you were before you died.

Diamond riches 💎
Congratulations on all your hard work! You must have a lot of resources now that you've been mining and farming for a few weeks. If you have at least 40 diamonds, why not open a shop and start earning even more diamonds? Shops are a great way to earn diamonds while offline since players can buy things from your shop even when you're not around. Plus, you can get your own shop for only 40 diamonds! If you're interested, check out our Market Guide for more information on how to buy a shop.
Keep an eye on our global job board for new opportunities! To access our job board, type /jobs and select the international job board to view available jobs. Don't forget to check back regularly, as new jobs may become available.
Currently undergoing a new revamp!
If you've been playing for a while and want to connect with other players, why not join or create a clan? Clans are great for fostering friendships and communicating with other players via private clan chat. Joining a clan is a great way to take your gaming experience to the next level!
To start or join a clan, type the command /clan
Are you interested in testing your skills against other players? If so, you can join the PvP arena and battle other players in a secure setting without worrying about losing your items. To enter, simply type /pvp into the chat window.
Congratulations! You've made it to the end of your Minecraft journey on CatCraft! While there's no end to the possibilities of Minecraft, we've added some extra features and content for those of you who are looking for something a bit more challenging. Here are a few ideas for your end-game adventure!
Collecting Cat Crate keys 🗝️
Explore mines to find emeralds, diamonds, and gold ore, and you might just get lucky and find a key for the cat crate!
Why not treat yourself to a cute companion by using diamond blocks to purchase a pet through the Petshop? They're a great way to add a bit of cuteness to your Minecraft experience!
Purchase pets using diamond blocks from /petshop
Slay the enderdragon 🔚
Slay the enderdragon a ton of times to gain a small chance to drop a dragon crate key. The odds of the key dropping is ultra-rare, so we only recommend this task for those with full catgod, or it will be too difficult and not worth the effort.
Difficulty: Ultra Hard
This achievement is near impossible to complete, and very few players have managed to achieve it. Collect all the CatGod pieces and showcase them in your trophy room.
Start a New Adventure 🔃
If you're looking to embark on a new journey, why not explore one of the other Realms? It'll be an amazing opportunity to forge new friendships and jump-start your survival gameplay. Your progress from the other Realm won't be diminished in any way - simply remember to log in every 30 days to ensure your shop doesn't reset!
