Minecraft: Ultra Hardcore is a gamemode originally created by Guude and the group Mindcrack.
In UHC mode, health does not automatically regenerate, so players must use a golden apple, golden head, or instant health potion. In addition, ghasts drop gold ingots, rather than ghast tears, so players cannot brew regeneration potions. Strength II potions are also disabled.
In this season of UHC, we have 22 participants scattered into teams of 2 across a 3000x3000 map with a shrinking border. We are using the MumbleLink mod that adds directional audio in-game. The last remaining team is deemed the winner. The season was recorded in a single-session.
We're using a custom plugin for UHC that automatically disables PvP for the first 20 minutes and displays episode timers.
