We are a modern post-apocalyptic survival server looking for developers and builders.

Our goal is to create a beautiful map and custom plugins to support an immersive, open world zombie apocalypse unlike any other Minecraft server.  Our map is publicly available, we await exciting servers and game modes based on our map!

In addition, we have a survival server on a beautiful custom map with towns, plots, economy, and shops. The IP will be posted soon.

It is my pleasure to announce the revival of one of my favorite servers that I will always hold dear: Jesse's Minecraft Server.

Its first launch was in December of 2011, and skyrocketed in its playerbase from my "How To Make a Minecraft Server" video. We had a pretty tight-knit community of players from all around the world. More folks came afterwards from servers like RP 2.0, the Faction Server, and of course, Project Zombie. We hope to see you on.

Below is our announcement teaser trailer.

Open-Source Plugins

Jesse a posted Sep 4, 16


I am happy to announce that all of Project Zombie's plugins are open-source! In case you do not know what open-source is, it's essentially releasing all of your code to the world for public use. We have decided to do this with hopes it will keep the Project Zombie server alive for years to come.

Anyone at this point has access to all of the internals (besides the map, for now). We strongly urge those who find use in our plugins to help contribute if possible. This will help grow both private servers and Project Zombie into mature, well-designed custom servers. I understand not everyone is Java savvy, but if you are somewhat knowledgable in working with the Spigot/Bukkit API we will help those new to the development process.

Our long term plan is to finish the plugins (will still be publicly available), polish the map to suite gameplay needs, and have our first release. Shortly after, I will compile the map and plugins into an easily-accessible format and release it to the world, allowing anyone to spin up their own custom instance of Project Zombie.

I'm due to make a video on the progress we have made since the last video. I'll try to do that soon.

Hey everybody, tonight I have finally got our name back into the real world and made a post on Planet Minecraft. You can find the page here.

With it includes many renders. I will update the slideshow at the top and provide a gallery of the high-res 2560x1440 pngs for everybody to download. They make great desktop backgrounds!

As for a personal update, I'm wrapping up my final quarter of my computer science degree and am looking into a master's program. Spring and summer (while I'm not in school) is going to be devoted just for PZ! Really looking forward to you guys breaking my plugins and helping test when we go to Beta (again)!

zies28 So exciting! I noticed a ton of improvements and expansions. Looks great keep up that great work.
BiscuitRaptor Seriously can't wait to play this again, I think this would be like my third beta or something. This server keeps m...
Sirath so when will the server be up? i havnt played this server in years!! i used to love this server and still do!

Custom Plugins Part 2

Hey guys, I just posted a new video covering the latest updates on PZ's custom plugins. Check it out here:

Hey guys, today I want to step aside from development talk and discuss Project Zombie monetization. In the past I have always done one-time donations. I prefer this method over subscriptions but with how Project Zombie will operate, I think subscriptions might be the best solution; here's why.

Hotel Rooms:

Rooms will always be a part of my servers. However, if PZ booms with players and we have a ton of people donating for a room, we'd have to be able to support 1000+ rooms and garauntee those rooms be saved forever! WorldGuard has a hard time parsing 1000 different regions, making the server slow!  With subscriptions, we could limit the rooms to one cruise ship.

Continuing Support:

Hosting PZ and the website costs money (obviously :P ). It would be nice to have continuing donations to pay for these server costs and pay dedicated builders, admins, future website developers, etc instead of relying on new donators wanting VIP.  I can garauntee all money will go toward the server or future servers :)

New Benefits?

I have had a few ideas floating around for new benefits we can introduce.

  • Party-Plus
    • There will be a custom party plugin that will allow players to make gangs/clans/teams/etc.  I want everyone to be able to make one. The perks of being a subscriber is you can have more people in your party. So for example, a non-donating player can make a party of up to 5 people whereas a subscriber can have 10, 20, or 50 depending on which subscription they choose!
  • Pets!
    • A pretty generic but still fun perk to have. Allow pets inside hotel rooms!
  • Monthly keys
    • So we are going to introduce crates into Project Zombie.  A crate can contain any weapon with any combination of attatchments (there are currently 700+ different combinations!). Subscribers will get a certain amount of keys each month which can be used to open crates.  Note that keys can be obtained by any player!

We are always open to ideas from the players. If you got one, please fire away in the comments!

For all the past donators from original PZ, I'm afraid my list cannot be used since Minecraft introduced unique IDs :/ Since we have added so much to PZ (it's pratically a different server), I'm going to start clean and not carry over donations from ORIGINAL PZ. However for those who donated during the Project Zombie Reborn beta, you will recieve a subscription for some time based on the amount you donated :)

That's all I have for now, I will be on all of this weekend if you need me!
