Hermitcraft is a popular Minecraft server where several content creators play together in a vanilla survival world. The server has been running since 2012 and has had nine seasons so far. The current iteration, Season 9, started on March 5, 2022, and is still ongoing. The server community was founded by Generikb on April 12, 2012.
Everything to know about Hermitcraft Season 9
What is Hermitcraft?
The server’s creator, Generikb, is a former Hermit with 1.08 million subscribers on YouTube. He left the server after Season 4, with his channel also being inactive. Xisumavoid, who joined the server in its early days, is now managing it.
The server’s members, known as Hermits, are well-known Minecraft players who have earned the invitation from other Hermits. They usually stream or post videos on YouTube about the server. They also create minigames, events, and gameshows for themselves and the viewers. They have also been involved in raising money for charities and participating in Minecon panels.
The server started the Season 9 world on Minecraft: Java Edition version 1.18.1 and uses a unique seed that WonderSim from the Monumenta community found.
The server’s spawn point is on a rocky shore by a lake, with a birch forest and mountains nearby. The players predominantly built their bases in this area, which was first used as a small shopping district until they moved to a designated area for shopping later. The server runs various mods with the Fabric Mod Loader and uses other data packs from Vanilla Tweaks.
The world was updated to 1.19 on July 2, 2022, and to 1.19.2 on September 27, 2022. The current season is working with version 1.19.4.
