Omniarchive is a community that focuses on preserving all official Minecraft content. Although we archive all editions of Minecraft, our main focus is finding and archiving versions of Java Edition that are lost to time and are no longer available.
Since its inception in September 2017 by HalfOfAKebab, the Omniarchive community has recovered more than 80 previously missing versions, mostly from the game's early development stages during 2009-2011. We are actively looking for more versions, with our usual methods being to contact players that played during these early days.
Our community also actively focuses on documenting the early history of Minecraft and its community, so it can be preserved for all to see. This work includes finding proof of the existence of versions previously unknown to exist, archiving screenshots and videos, and contributing to the Minecraft Wiki.
Although we don't have any official archives of fanmade content, many members of the community also actively archive mods, tools, and worlds; especially those from Minecraft's early days.
Outside of archival, we also have a large Discord community focused on a shared love of old versions of Minecraft, as well as the game in general including newer versions. We also host gaming events for the community, and we aim to make these more of a regular occurrence in the future.
