Gamemode 4D (a.k.a. GM4D or PSIV) was the fourth server owned by Accidental Games to give fans of Gamemode 4 a survival server to play with Gamemode 4's many modules (a list is provided below). The server was officially opened on November 10th, 2017 and closed on October 29th, 2018.

This server was the first official Gamemode 4 server to be fully public and without a whitelist. Previous servers required players to apply for access.

Description[edit | edit source]

Gamemode 4D featured many different dimensions, each of which served a different purpose. When first spawning in Gamemode 4D, players would spawn in Landings, randomly spread out from each other. They would have a book in their inventory that explains how to craft a Mandala. The Mandala would allow players to travel to different dimensions.

Vanilla Dimensions[edit | edit source]

There were several differences between the normal dimensions of Minecraft and the dimensions of Gamemode 4D. The Overworld, Nether, and End had been tweaked to make the survival experience more difficult.

Overworld[edit | edit source]

The overworld was altered significantly: the bedrock layer was raised, less ore types could be found, and villagers were not found in this world. Additionally, the two other vanilla dimensions (Nether and End) could not be accessed through this dimension.

Nether[edit | edit source]

The Nether could not be accessed through the Overworld. To reach the Nether, a portal could be built at the very bottom area of Lower Caves. Portals in the Nether had to be below a certain height to properly activate.

The End[edit | edit source]

The End could not be accessed through the Overworld. To reach the End, a player had to use an End Portal found on the Moon.
