Animus Legacy has a lot of history associated with it….

First of all, spawn is an almost 100% accurate replica of the beta 1.7.3 spawn from Animus Gaming/Animus Network (And spawn alone was a huge project, I can tell you that!!).

But there’s a lot more to it than that…

I don’t know when Animus Network was set up exactly, but I was playing on it when beta 1.7.3 was fairly fresh.  (Beta 1.7.3 was released on 8/7/2011 so it’s been a while.)  After playing on Animus Network I was inspired to set up my own server with plugins, just like I’d seen on Animus.  I set to searching around and eventually found the information I needed.  I set up my server, created a closed VPN, and invited a few friends to come along and play.  Eventually I was spending all my time running my own server, NerdNet_Pembury, but I still checked back with Animus Gaming every now and then.  One day I found that they seemed to have disappeared.  This was a big disappointment since that had been my favourite server at the time.

From that point on I focused more and more on runnning NerdNet_Pembury.

Despite being home-hosted on an admittedly awful connection, NNP accumulated a small group of loyal players.  I kept working on the server, trying to improve things as well as keeping everything up to date during the frequent updates Mojang were releasing.

Eventually my interest in and available time for NerdNet_Pembury decreased.  I stopped updating things, and eventually in 2013 I quietly shut down NerdNet_Pembury for good.

I decided to create Animus Legacy for several reasons.  First, I miss having a little community to call my own.  Second, I can afford to have a professionally hosted server today.  And third, I miss the struggle of getting a plugin to work correctly, strange as that sounds.

Animus Legacy has been 2 years in the making, and now it is finally here we hope you will join us on the next chapter of this wonderful journey
