I totally play this game, but I probably won't do it online until multiplayer survival mode is available.  My favorite build is elaborate defensive structures... but if you don't get attacked... yeah.  Bring on the zombies.

Play it. Love it.  Also been turning on others too it.

Notch is a crazy success story and he made a damn fun game that it seems everyone can get into.

Check out youtube vids to get an idea and if you got $13 buy it while it's in alpha.  You won't regret it (well maybe, but I doubt it).

I absolutely love this game, but I'm really waiting for Multiplayer Survival, because Creation is kinda fun and interesting, but I want RP-style permadeath Survival Mode where all blocks take gravity into account (because building a sky fortress to escape the skeletons sounds kinda ridiculous)

So, at the risk of dredging up a dying thread...

My Minecraft game finally got interesting.

After a series of days spent shoring up my mountain fortress, exploring, building up, etc., I tentatively started digging in earnest. Two things - my fort is large enough now for monsters to spawn inside of it, so I have a series of doors blocking hallways and various access points, and several "safe rooms." While digging, suspecting I was near a cavern given the rushing water I could hear, I gave up my typically orderly staircase style and went straight down - and broke through, fell into an underground river, and was rushed away underwater. By spamming blocks frantically I managed to get out of the river, then dammed it up and started to explore. The river led into a huge underground cavern, what must have been a lake until I had dammed it up, and a series of waterfalls (which I made into staircases.) Further exploration is warranted, but I chickened out short of exploring it all just yet, though there were no signs then of the undead.

I decided to spend a few days and nights topside, namely - building a floating glass fortress above the tree line, which worked fantastically until a horde of undead pigmen, skeletons, zombies and creepers took up residence beneath it... before I could get my cactus farm started. Long story short, there was a gigantic explosion. A good portion of my forest, and the large desert stretching across most of the map, is now a giant crater. I had to rebuild the glass fort out of stone, at least most of the floor. I did, however, get to produce some TNT out of all the creeper droppings.

Plans? More TNT, blast the top off the mountain my fort sits on (without damaging my fort beneath it). Build a cactus garden moat, mass produce more glass, then head back down into that cavern to explore. If needed, flood the cavern first to remove any baddies. Build portal. Go to Hell.

Drift mining is your friend. Also, label EVERYTHING in your mines. Getting lost sucks butts.

In other news, my friends and I built a geometrically perfect hollow pyramid out of sand suspended by stone. We decided that wasn't enough though, so we dug an inverted pyramid beneath it. A narrow glass catwalk extends to the floating nethergate in the dead center.

edit: and some quick maths put it at approximately 1/3rd the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza. WE NEED TO BUILD IT BIGGER.

Heh.

I've never played minecraft and only know a little bit about it.  I was hoping you could explain what SMP is and why it is 'no damage.'  The wiki article doesn't mention SMP.  I'm guessing that's Survival Multi Player?
I'm trying to get some idea on how the game is developing.  Do you think it will be possible to have customizable multiplayer worlds with all the features (blocks,monsters, etc.) at some point, or is it the intent of the developer to have all that going on a single, MMO-style server?

Yep, SMP does indeed mean survival multiplayer.  Presently, it does not support damage, meaning you cannot get hurt, monsters do not spawn, and you cannot kill cows/chickens/etc.  Most of the other features, such as crafting and mining, however, are supported.  Also, there is an annoying glitch, I've noticed, that makes it so that sometimes you have to destroy a block twice before it actually goes away.

I threw up a temporary server today and toyed around with it a bit.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: HavokBlue on November 13, 2010, 09:24:20 PM
You actually can enable monster spawning in multiplayer, you just won't be able to kill them directly. The only way to kill anything in multiplayer, at the moment, is to use flint and steel to light the ground beneath it on fire and hope it catches.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Marauder Moe on November 13, 2010, 09:27:29 PM
I got this about a week ago.

It's crazy addicting.

It's like a first-person Dwarf Fortress.


I made a server and me and my friend spent like 6 hours straight building castles.

I've made it so monsters do spawn in MP, but indeed damage is bugged so you can't die or kill anything.  Once that gets fixed I think multiplayer will be pretty damned good.

Heh.  Good luck.

The game expands the world on the fly (as people approach the borders of the generated world).  The theoretical maximum world size is supposed to be about 8x the surface area of the Earth.

Also, trees can grow.

I would love Zalanthas in Minecraft.
I would love to build Allanak in Minecraft.  Really, it could pretty much be done.  The landscaping would be extremely tedious, though.

If you guys want to make a replica Zalanthas on a server, toss me the details and tell me what to build and where, and I will help. Let's get Allanak, Luirs and Tuluk built, with the North Road (cobblestone? gravel?) linking them up.

We'd need to generate a map with lots of sand, though - my current map is about 85% desert with a giant, upside down mountain in the middle, but I doubt that it's a large enough desert to work. Can you specify what generates in a world? Ie, make a giant desert with some scrub trees up north?

Yeah, I love Minecraft, but I'll love it even more when the survival part of it becomes more pervasive. You get to a point where the enemy mobs are more a nuisance than a danger.

Doesn't stop me from nearly shitting myself every a skeleton shoots at me during cave expeditions.

My problem is that when I jump, I accidentally mash the keyboard and (usually) set my render distance from tiny to far, which then lags me out.

Last time a skeleton shot at me I jerked my mouse so hard I then fell down an underground river and almost got landed on some lava  :P

My castle is awesome. It has a sky ramp from one castle to the other that cuts the trip down from one whole day to about two minutes or something.  There are massive underground caves everywhere.  I never want to leave this level.  But I do want to take a boat to some tropical islands I can see from the top of my mountaintop keep.

Zoltan agrees.  He just told me "Your stuff is impressive.  It's like epic when epicness is not easy."  I should post a screen shot at some point, but I always get lazy and forget because the game doesn't run when I'm on the GDB =(

I love Runecraft as well, but sometimes it seems like it'd be too easy to gain access to magick. Though, one rune changes the entire game from day to night.... so if someone were able to place the rune pattern high enough, without being noticed, and NOT get creepers spawned on them... I think they deserve to plunge the world into eternal darkness.

Try connecting to 192.168.2.103.  IM me on AIM or MSN if it doesn't work.
That's your internal home (office?) network IP.  It won't work.   ;)

You need to get your external IP.  (http://www.whatsmyip.org/)

You'll also probably need to open up port 25565 on your firewall and forward it to your computer from your router.

I'm pretty sure you can connect to Aaron Goulet's server (24.19.220.244) through the free JAVA app on Minecraft website.  You'll need to register an account, but you only have to pay if you want to buy the client-side program.

After making an account, go to the multiplayer link on the website and type in Aaron's IP address.  If you get in you'll be spawned at the home point.  There will be some hills and trees.  You can find our little, growing town by looking in the sky for Ragnar's Tower.
Title: Re: Minecraft

Some questions:

Could someone explain how/when changes in weather take place in the game?  When is there snow?  Where is there snow?

Could someone explain how to make portals?  Where does one find obsidian?  I've mined lots and never found diamond either.  I heard about making portals from cooled lava though.

Aaron, is your server older than the last patch?  In the new patch, iron is much more prevelent.  Maybe we're in an iron-poor location, but I've encounted much more iron in single player game that I started two days ago, which leads me to believe your server world is older than the patch that made iron more common.

Diamond, as with Redstone, is found near the bottom of the map, around the Adminium deposits.

Obsidian isn't mined, as much as it is lava, cooling on top of blue water. Most of the time you must farm is, as you would cacti.

I don't know about portals per se, but I know Runecraft allows for such things.

Weather seems random, I'm unsure.

Also. I will make an underwater garden. You'll see.

I mined over 70 redstone yesterday in about an hour and got not a single diamond.  Am I doing something wrong?

What are adminium deposits?  You mean the black "bedrock" that can't be dug through?  Heh, just wander through Dragonsthrall mine and you'll see that I dug.  Yeah baby I dug.  Not a single diamond or obsidian.  Plenty of lava though.  I guess I'll get some buckets and make obsidian from cooled lava.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: HavokBlue on November 15, 2010, 11:03:06 PM
Diamond is rare. You will probably not find lots of it easily. I suggest looking up youtube videos on strip-mining.

Adminium is the bottom of the world, and cannot be destroyed. Don't bother digging past it, you'll probably fall through the world.

Portals don't currently work in multiplayer, but are made by constructing a 5x4 obsidian door.

Weather is not currently implemented beyond the form of biomes, which are different environments depending on where you are and what you're nearby, such as snow in the mountains, better grass near a lake or river, etc etc.

Survival multiplayer does not work without a paid account.

HavokBlue is correct in all these things.  Unfortunately, spacewars, only people who have paid for the game are able to log into the server, as the free version doesn't support crafting/mining/etc.  :(

Posted on Notch's Blog (http://notch.tumblr.com/):

"Today and tomorrow will be two days of solid work. I’m currently working on server-side health and some performance tweaks. It looks like I might want to rewrite (or at the very least refactor) parts of the lighting engine to get better control over it. For server-side health, the current issue is that the client is sending the wrong entity id for targets.

I’m also looking into fixing a bunch of lag issues, specifically the returning blocks after mining them bug."

Day 42
I don't think the others have known, up to now, that I am here.  I've been careful, cutting trees only at night and being sure to take the whole tree so there's little trace of my depredations.  The underground road I cut through to my lair from the coast is a nice touch.  But with the construction of my elevated transcontinental gangplank, the cat is really out of the bag.  But who cares!  Let them fear or welcome their new overlord as it pleases them.

V. pleased with my first Menacing Tower.

Day 43
Fell into an underground waterfall and had to tunnel out.  Bother.

Day 44
Signs of civilization on a nearby island.  I will need explosives soon.

You should totally make it PvP.

Okay, so the new update broke a few things, it seems here is a list of issues reported by other players:

- When someone dies, they are invisible.
- Lava and water overflow problems.
- Invisible items after death.
- Occasional death at spawn.

Here is Notch's deal:

"Also needed is visible armor on players and mobs (sheep!), and some tweaks to reduce laggy moving mobs. And bows and arrows."

So, right now, playing conditions are less than ideal, unfortunately.  Just a fair warning.

So far today, I’ve done this:
* Swords and other weapons now deal damage properly
* Added proper hurt animations and sounds to mobs and players
* Fixed dead players logging in as invisible ghosts
* Made arrows visible and deal damage
* Hoes now produce proper seeds
* Creepers make noises and animate before exploding
* Explosions animate properly
* No more infinite free arrows

I’m currently working on trying to fix levers, pressure plates and buttons in SMP. They act a bit weird.

Because the update will require updating both the client and the server, I will wait with doing the update until I’m done with this round of bug fixes, so the update is coming tomorrow.

The client version is now 1.2.4
The server version is now 0.2.6 (mandatory update, there’s been protocol changes)

Bug fix list:

* Swords and other weapons now deal damage properly
* Added proper hurt animations and sounds to mobs and players
* Fixed dead players logging in as invisible ghosts
* Made arrows visible and deal damage
* Hoes now produce proper seeds
* Creepers make noises and animate before exploding
* Explosions animate properly
* No more infinite free arrows
* Server logging now appends to server.log rather than overwriting it
* Buttons and levers (and a few other blocks probably, it’s a general solution) animate properly
* Fixed minecarts (and pigs!) moving twice as fast as they should when ridden.
* The join server screen now remembers the last entered ip
* Increased chunk saving frequency on the server
* Leaving sneak mode no longer triggers a million sounds
* You can now see sneaking players
* Names of sneaking players aren’t visible through walls, and are visible a much shorter distance
* Snowballs!!

I’ll monitor for bugs for a while, then head home!

[edit:]

Server 0.2.6_01 no longer gives everyone 64 snowballs on connecting

[edit:]

Server 0.2.6_02 and client 1.2.4_01 now spawn other monsters than ONLY CREEPERS EVERYWHERE

Wow. Just jumped on Aarons server. You people do some awesome work.

Is there a build scheme here?

Can I just pick a spot and erect my keep?
Is there a more heavily populated player area? ?

Just build wherever you like!  All I ask is that people try to be mindful and respect other peoples' hard work and effort by not destroying their creations.

Hey man, I'm in the same boat.  Well, work-wise, at least.  Still not actively seeking a girlfriend yet.

Watch out that you don't dig towards the spawn point, as it is protected by vile magicks.

To Whom It May Concern,

I needed a place to stay, so I camped out in your little stone fort. The one with the two stacked furnaces to the left of the door, crafting bench to the right, two little chests, two rooms - indoor wheat farm, and a larger chest. Yeah, that fort.

And then I got bored.

So I dug a stairway down off the right room with the chest, and I hit a cave, and then I dug down some more from there. Long story short, your fort is now an access point to a lava lake. I put some spare junk in your chests. Mostly coal and furnaced stone.

I'm gonna build a portal later. Don't freak out.

Sincerely,
Jenna

One of the main things I love about this game is building defenses.

Right now on my server with Zoltan, creepers are the bane of me, because my castle is made of sand.  You could call it a sand castle.  One time, a creeper blew up and dropped one entire wall of my sand castle into a lake about 20 squares below me.  That was pain.  Now they don't do that anymore (since bows work).

Fortunately(?) for me and Zoltan, Comcast stopped working in the entire area, judging by my friends' facebook complaints, so we couldn't nerd out with you guys last night.  Or do anything internet related.  Which means he couldn't finish his homework and I couldn't do necessary research.  Not that we would have anyway, if we started really getting into Minecraft, but still.

So, using the chat thing, Aaron told me it was already done / in the doings?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Where's it at? I wanna check that shit out....

And decide what to build NOW on my island fort.


The pirate ship is behind my castle.  If you follow the giant sand torches leading away from the spawn, you will eventually hit a very large castle on top of a giant sand mountain.  You can see the Flaming Smiley from quite a ways if you have far render on.  If you go to the ocean behind the castle, you will see my pirate ship.

Keep off the dirigible plums.

There's no reason we can't have a pirate ship fleet, though.  Seriously.  The more pirate ships, the merrier.

So - I'm a total newblet at buying things from foreign countries online.

The cost is in euros. How do I purchase the game? Do I have to go through Paypal?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: RogueGunslinger on December 08, 2010, 03:10:25 PM
Finally convince myself to get this, and it's literally impossible for me to. Paypal keeps declining my card. On to easier things, this just frustrated the hell out of me and wasted too many hours of my life. Maybe I'll pick it up if it's ever sold in stores or they come up with a new payment method.


Change the country you're in to one that's english speaking, shadow.

These are the two messages I have been seeing the most.  I have reported the bug to Notch using his little bug-reporting website and via e-mail.  I hope we fixes it in the patch that he has IMPLIED will be delivered tomorrow.

Eh, it's still in Beta, and he's pretty quick on the bug fixes.  Can't say the same about some game companies.

Yeah, I dunno, I think Notch seems like a pretty good guy.

He became a millionaire making this game, but instead of buying a yacht he hired a staff to support it.

When was the last time a developer of a $50+ game said "it should get fixed tomorrow"???

POINT MADE.  Yeah, I actually admire Notch, being an indie Java developer, and I envy his success. :)

I'm more cynical. It would have taken two seconds of testing to realize that multiplayer is utterly borked, but he went ahead and released it anyway.  I don't care if his game is two dollars or two hundred dollars, that's just sloppy. I feel like the only reason he went beta was so he could make his product more expensive...not because the game is anything like done (or at this point, functional.)

Anyway, I seethe because I care.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: valeria on December 21, 2010, 12:02:42 PM
It's not broken on all servers.  I can connect to some servers without having this problem, like my own.

I think he set a deadline to release beta and decided he was going to stick to it.  And in good news, it'll probably be fixed by tonight.  Where if he was... let's just say Blizzard, for instance, he would say that he was releasing X, and then it would be released three months later.  With bugs.

When I first started playing on the server, something would happen where my internet connection was disabled completely.  I needed to power down my router to get it working again.

It might be the old-school gamer in me, but the game works just fine in single-player.  Notch is also deploying the software across a wide variety of systems that pride themselves on their increased complexity.

When I get back to playing on the server, I'm making an airborne resource farm complete with elevator.  That's what I do with this downtime.

If you only knew how many bugs are open and not fixed on software that is shipped and you have purchased.

I would estimate that there are still over 1,000 open bug reports on SIMs 3.

That's nice, but I can play the Sims 3.  I can't play minecraft at all since he released beta, so...I would rather have a working product than a non-working one.

If I couldn't play The Sims 3, I would be complaining just as much.

I have a friend of mine that is having an issue where they download the new beta version, and whenever they start it, it still states Alpha.  It's rather odd, but they have a friend of theirs looking at it hopefully today.  Trying to start my own server up to mess around with and they couldn't connect because of their version.

I gotta admin, the game is interesting but I can definitely see it being rather boring to play by yourself.  I'll be playing around with a bit more when I have time.

No server?

I'm sorry about that.  I took it down overnight and forgot to put it back up.

I am contemplating shutting it down for good, since not many people seem to play anymore, and my power bill is climbing.  Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but I got hit with a $410 car repair bill this month, so I may not be able to pay my power bill AT ALL.  I haven't made a decision yet, but when I do, I'll be certain to let everyone know.

Someone else is welcome to continue carrying the torch.  Let me know if you want a copy of the world to host on your own server.

I'm sorry, guys and gals. :(  Normally money isn't so tight that I'd have to fret over an extra $20-$30.
Title: Re: Minecraft

I am not necessarily opposed because I haven't been able to play lately, but I want a copy of the world before you wipe it off the map...I was working on a project before I left and would like to finish it eventually, even if that means finishing it on a server of my own.

A copy of the world will be available to everyone if I decide to do this.  Furthermore, I can provide instructions on how to set it up as a single-player game or a server.

ALSO: We'll get new stuff with the new world, like new tree types, and lapis lazuli ore.  Those weren't available before.

It was actin' flaky for me, but I was able to get on long enough to start a sea-level tunnel going south from the open-air jacuzzi.  New construction technology: glass floor, no exposed torches.

Then a creeper blew it up.

But I think maybe Laura fixed it.

It seems like (while they're migrating the Minecraft server to be bigger, better, and stronger) it's very difficult to log in to servers.  I'm thinking maybe because of the account authentication issue.  I can't even log in to my own server, which is irritating.

I'm the one that was offering and I'm more than willing to have you all on the server.  Currently it's a group of my IRL friends and it's professionally hosted by the company www.minehost.org (they are beta and I'm helping them test, others can also if you're willing to get it).  Right now the server can "comfortably" handle 10 players, though it's not capped at all.  I could upgrade if I find it needed, but right now not.  Only rules is the basics... no screwing with peoples stuff, try to find a spot away from spawn to build (right now we have a communal based that is being expanded and such with a few farms inside it.  Tools, etc that are free to use... just put stuff back or donate to it.  It's a free form server just with a general map and once mod support is regained, I'll be adding mods on to play with.  You can goto the website: http://knoxxserver.minehost.org/ for info (which will be updated once the host comes out with the control panel) and you can use knoxxserver.minehost.org to access it.  I'm Knoxx. :)  I hope people have fun with it.  The game is awesome.  Also if you check out the website, it has updated maps of the current world.

My most prized possessions are my stone tools and a couple of iron ingots I found. I kill pigs for food in the day and hide from monsters at night. I have no water, no furniture and everything I own, I scavenged or built with my bare hands.

I LOVE THIS GAME



That's the spirit

I know i've posted this before but i think i got it now. I will be glad to leave my computer on so we can have an arm player server. I logged into the hosted server to check it out. I felt weird being there so i logged off. I don't have the old aarons server but i do have the equipment to run one. If anyone is interested Hit me up on Aim U4Nstriker
I just wanted a general idea of how many players would be playing on it.


I think Val and I might be interested if we could keep the world that is on aaron's server now.

I like the idea of a hosted server, but I don't really want mods if I'm going to be playing survival.

The hosted server isn't aarons server. If aaron ever gets on i may try and get some of the info from him to setup his server on my machine

Ok so until i get in touch with aaron here is a server to try out 68.19.159.107 i am going to make sure to leave my computer running so you guys can play
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on January 21, 2011, 12:44:07 AM
Ok so I logged on to the hosted server to check it out.  I have to say, it is far more reliable to have a game on a machine dedicated to running it than it is to use someone's home computer.  No offense to Aaron or spacewars or anybody else, but I have to say the experience is much smoother, less laggy, and has comparatively few glitches.  Chunk errors and world holes seem pretty sparse on Knoxx's server.  So that's the pros. 

The cons of this server are that logging onto a world that's already been significantly built up takes some of the feeling of excitement and adventure out of the experience.  It feels more like I am visiting someone's home than WRESTLING THE WILDERNESS TO THE GROUND WITH MY BARE HANDS.

Anyway, all in all, I'd prefer to have a dedicated and more reliable server than make spacewars or aaron continue to give up their machines and bandwidth...but starting in a fresher world would also be nice.

So that's my thoughts!  I'm not sure what to do about it though, and also I mean no offense to anybody, it is very nice of Knoxx to invite us to his server, and it's also awesome of spacewars and aaron to have volunteered their time and bandwidth for so long.

You only gave people forty minutes to see if they would. :(



As for the Fresher world/more stable server debate.

I'd say an infinite world give plenty of opportunity for fresh. :) Though community spawn-points are irritating when you die... i wish we could designate our own spawning point with something. Or we should have the nether, so we can fast travel long distances easily.

Another thing to think about as far as an already established world, versus a new one. All the areas people have already been will not have the new trees, or lapis stone, and stuff like that which was recently added in them. You'd have to go find a new area anyways to get those things.


I also have another salient concern: Why does Zoltan not play MineCraft  >:(

Post by: JustAnotherGuy on January 21, 2011, 08:54:10 AM
Hey there all.  My world really isn't that developed in my opinion, we're actually trying to get people to spread out a bit so we can do our own things.  Now one thing I plan on putting in once mods are working again is teleports or different spawn points for groups or what not.  This will allow people to move about to different areas easier as needed.  Right now we're working on a communal main spawn so people can get a few things or at least be protected from hostiles.  Now an idea/hope I have is to have a teleport that will teleport you to a random edge of the map so you can get tossed into the wilderness.  I'm up for ideas and all if you have any, or comments.  Anyone is welcome to do what they will be it host another server or play somewhere else, I'm just offering it up to let others have a place to play.

I gots my Arms to play, bro. And M&B. And Napoleon.

Besides, I'm waiting to see where all the cool kids play for real. I don't want to make any suggestions for servers at the moment because I don't know how much I'll actually be playing.

He's addicted to Crackageddon again, and he can really only have one prominent game addiction at a time.

~*~

If we started a new world on the hosted server instead of jumped into the middle of someone's already-worked-on world, I'd be a lot more okay with that.  But I really don't like mods.  If it was something where I had to pick between playing Vanilla Minecraft by myself, or Group Minecraft with Mods, I would probably just go back to my SP game.  Even though I love you all.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on January 21, 2011, 09:13:28 AM
Yeah so I have some news.

When I was talking about minecraft to my boyfriend last night, he surprised me by buying server space on minehost.  He and I will be hosting out a new world to test out the dedicated server life and see how it goes.  If people play on the server and its reliable and fun we will keep paying for hosting.

Now apparently I can't do this myself, but I can submit a support ticket to minehost and they can work on making a world to fit my preferences.  At least that's what Knoxx has been telling me about their service.

What do people think of that idea?  Are there any suggestions or requests?  I kind of like the idea of a mostly desert world, myself!  

Oh yes, and it will be vanilla SMP.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: JustAnotherGuy on January 21, 2011, 09:25:44 AM
Just to note, mine will be pretty much Vanilla with only some admin mods to make certain things a bit easier to manage the thing.

Fun stuff. I l;ike the maps the the server offers. Very cool. There are a metric f-ton of caves it seems. I like all these tree styles too. Very cool.

I'm a big proponent of community projects. So if you have something big your working on, or just want some company while you work. I'd love to help. tT is a multiplayer server after all. :)

Quote from: Runner Jherlen's Journal, Day 17:
"So Sarge Laura 'n I got called up on a contract by some crazy feller named Brytta what had t' trek all th' way back to 'is place halfway cross th' damn world. I ain' normally much fer adventures, but 'e was payin' a full stack 'f 64 glass if we'd escort 'im, 'n I needed t' finish my staircase.

"By time we'd rode out to 'im, 't was already nightfall 'n th' damn fool's gettin' set on by all sorts 'f creepers 'n zombies, walkin' out in th' open alone. It were a wonder 'n a half he'd lived that long. So Sarge 'n I hacked our way through 'n saved 'im, then Sarge bandaged 'im up 'n gave 'im some stew t' eat. Three of us keeps on walkin' all through the night.

"Come day we get t' a giant feckin' ocean, 'n this Brytta feller says 'is place 's on th' other side. I was real pissed 'bout havin' t' swim in all my armor, but a job's a job. When we was finally 'cross th' ocean, we find us a giant chessboard that 'e says is th' gateway to 'is 'kingdom'. I ain' too sure why 'e don't just build light pillars like civilized folks, but like I said afore, 'e was a real loon.

"Past th' chestboard, 'e leads us into untamed wilderness... some 'f th' most beautiful country I seen this side 'f th' tablelands. Sure wasn' easy goin, though... Sarge fell off a couple cliffs, I reckon she ain' been practicin' her climbin' skills much. Bout midday, we come t' realize this shit-fer-brains ain' got th' damndest clue where 'is 'kingdom' is. Personally I ain' real sure 'e even had one... was all probably some krath-struck notion in 'is head. Afore dusk 'e has us turn around completely, keeps ravin' 'bout gettin' back to th' chessboard. But we're lost 's a northie in a whorehouse by that point.

"So Sarge Laura decides we's gonna weather th' night in th' side 'f a hill, she digs out a place 'n seals 't up. But this Brytta feller ain' got no notion of how t' camp out.. we's barely sat down afore he's off tunnelin' in th' damn hill again. Afore I know 't he's caved us all in 'n we're in th' middle of some underground lake. Was a gypsy's own luck there weren't no nasties down there waitin' for us.

"By th' time we dug ourselves out, was day again 'n Sarge decides we's gonna turn back. After more walkin 'n another swim back 'cross th' ocean, we see us lights on th' horizon. At first we thought 't was a forest fire, but turns out it's a tree house! As we're walkin' on up, Sarge says, exact words, 'I think we've found Moe's Cabin.' Then we sees us a sign what says You have found Moe's cabin.

"Well this Brytta feller were none too happy 'bout turnin' back, crazy 's 'e was, 'n I reckon 'e had no intention 'f ever payin' us t' begin with. Rather 'n pay, 'e decides t' cook 'imself alive right there in Moe's own fireplace! That was th' end 'f him, so Sarge 'n I headed on home. Next escort contract I take, I reckon I'm gonna be damn sure I know where I'm goin' first."

We are going to build a wall around spawn.  There was a massive creeper outbreak courtesy of whatever strange bioengineering mistakes have decimated the human population and turned them into monsters.

The wall will be 8 blocks high and five blocks wide, starting from the roof of the little sandstone hut on spawn.  The spawn border is marked with stones and torches.  I made a sample cross section of the wall for your edumacation.

Feel free to help out, everyone!

Ok I made a quick cross section of what I'd like us to do for the wall.

(http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a148/lauramars/wallxsection.jpg)

Yep, torches beneath the glass all the way around!  Classy illumination.  We can discuss crenellations/fencing as the issue arises.

I was originally going to fill the middle part of the wall with gravel but unless you all say otherwise, leaving it empty might be good...can use it to hold supplies and build within the wall if necessary. 

We will also be adding a moat.

SERVER ANNOUNCEMENT

Hi.  We have been experiencing lag on the server.  The admins of minehost would like to see the ping logs of users who experience lag.  If you experience lag that cannot be explained on your end, please do the following from command line on windows or by using the network utility on a mac.

tracert lauracraft.minehost.org
(save it to a text called tracert.txt)

ping lauracraft.minehost.org
(save it to a text called ping.txt)

Email these logs to me at laurajlmars@gmail.com and I will send them on to the minehost admins.  I want to figure out if we're having memory issues or network issues, but I am pretty sure it is their end that is the problem, not ours.  If necessary they said they will move us to another server.  Anyway, please run the commands if you experience lag that can't be explained on your end, and if you don't know how to run the commands let me know and I'll walk you through it. 

I'd like to try and get this figured out, so any help you guys could give me is greatly appreciated!

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on January 25, 2011, 12:31:03 PM
Spacewars, you are currently tunneling quite a bit below sea level.  That means if your tunnel ever emerges anywhere, it's going to emerge in a cavern or in the water.  You are most likely not going to burst out of the side of a mountain one day unless you start digging upward...just so you know that.  :)

Also in my experience minecarts (especially powered minecarts) are a lot slower than walking unless you start them on a hill...and even then they lose momentum quickly and become slow.

I'm not sure if notch did anything to fix them for beta, but I imagine some research on google would quickly tell you if minecarts are worth investing in or not.

There's a way involving parallel minecarts to make them accelerate to exhilirating speeds, but I'm unsure how it works exactly or if it's supposed to do that.

Yes, the community calls these contraptions "boosters".  As I said, last time I tried them they didn't work particularly well in multiplayer.

Last time I tried boosters, a couple weeks ago, they worked great. But it was over a rather short distance.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Kalai on January 25, 2011, 07:11:00 PM
They seem to work pretty well over ... well, I was too dazzled watching the landscape go past to figure out how appreciable the distance was. But a somewhat appreciable distance. On my friend's server.

Aside from the first time I tried it it worked weirdly, but only in not going where expected. I have a touch of glitch so it's not unusual. But it worked there and back, me being pushed each way.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: HavokBlue on January 25, 2011, 07:22:40 PM
Minecarts mostly work fine. Boosters seem to function correctly, the problem is minecarts have an annoying habit of moving themselves around when nobody is there.

Whoever has the big red brick tower with obsidian checkered wall thing, i'm very sorry i was diggin upwards out of my tunnel and i may have messed up your Redstone curcuits. I tried to fix what i could with what i had but i don't know exactly how everything worked. But you now have an easy, And safe access around the corner of your building on the right side i have cobblestone blocking the hole in the ground to mark it. Feel free to close it up if you want. By the way Very nice work on it.

Okay.  Thanks for the notification.  Redstone circuits are very touchy, so chances are I'm just going to have to fix it myself.  I will probably close it up any other entrance to my fortress, since I don't really want any easy access other than through the front door.  ;)

Yeah, I fixed it.  I closed off the bottom with bricks so that you don't accidentally wander into the circuit again  ;).  If it's blocking your tunnel you might want to put a little jink in it there.

There is a tunnel under my base leading down to my mines already that I can connect it to.  I'll probably do that this morning, or maybe this afternoon when I get back from the stuff I have to do at school.

And I'm not really mad.  Shit happens in minecraft and it's not like it was on purpose.  I would have been irritated if you hadn't said anything, though!  The line you cut was the one that was for the door buttons, so I wouldn't have been able to get into/out of my base.  And from the outside, I wouldn't have been able to tell you ran into the circuit, so it would have been like... why is this not working.

Minecraft user Bilanthri (not sure what the corresponding GDB name is for that player) has started a small village on the server.  Feel free to drop by and build a house there!  It is a short way east of spawn!  We have decided that it is a Lovecraftian village, due to the fact that it's build on the shore of an ocean and the amount of creepers that seem to spawn there each night is truly a sign of the Deep Ones.  The village is named Brenholt (but I think we should rename it Innsmouth).

I haven't had any trouble. I would make an account at minehost.org and submit a support ticket, telling them you are unable to connect to my server.

I do know that Mojang authentication has been causing some real trouble for some users over the past few days, which is making it difficult to connect.  See minehost.org's main page for more news on that.

That's fine, as long as you confine it to those two people.  Please don't invite anybody else, or let them invite anybody else.  The more popular the server gets, the laggier it will be.

So yeah, if you're going to invite friends, that's cool...just please keep it to one or two people, and don't let your friends invite friends. :P  I'm not trying to be a bitch, because I'd love to have lots of people on the server, but unfortunately, I've noticed definite performance issues when we have a lot of people on, so for the enjoyment of everybody we need to have a low population server - at least until I can afford something nicer.

Thanks for letting me know!

Server Update:  lauracraft is moving to Dallas!  One of the minehost server admins logged on and he said it would probably address some of our lag issues, so we are going to be migrated over at some point in the near future.  When this happens, the server will be down for an hour or two. 

They are also going to keep an eye on our memory usage to see if a server upgrade would be practical for us.  I will keep everyone updated.

Had over 120 blocks of iron ore and around twenty diamonds.... All the monsters wound up chipping my health down to half a heart, so I had to get out-- started tunneling.

Surprise skeleton drops out of the roof and ganks me on the spot.

So we need a creeper farm, right?

I'm okay with slowing this project down in order to do it right.  Glass over bedrock under ten fathoms of sea water and a moonlit sky is the perfect dance floor.

Are we deep enough to make a dropkill farm just under the glass ceiling?
Title: Re: Minecraft

probably.  But what about the dance floor?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: brytta.leofa on April 11, 2011, 02:31:34 PM
probably.  But what about the dance floor?

Can't build the dance floor proper without we got more TNT.
Can't make more TNT without we fetch more gunpowder.
Can't fetch gunpowder less'n we kill us some creepers.
Easiest way to kill creepers is by dropping 'em into our whereabouts from a great height.

(http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm140/inertialinix/moon.png)

We have some decisions to make...I have overtorched the daylights out of it so that we can safely add water above.  My original plan was to have no illumination on the main floor and cover it with glass to prevent monster spawning, but the grass is really pretty, too.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: brytta.leofa on April 18, 2011, 10:32:49 PM
I am still going to fix your balcony suite, catstacks.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on April 18, 2011, 11:05:06 PM
I've always liked the glass idea best.  But if catstacks is still yearning for a jules-verne-esque paradise at the center of the earth, I was thinking a layer of grass at bedrock, and a layer of glass about 6 squares above that.  That will let us grow some trees and have livestock.  But you didn't want illumination, which means monsters will spawn down there at night and be torched in the daytime. 

I guess we would still have to pick off the creepers and spiders somehow though.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Samira on April 19, 2011, 12:18:42 AM
The grass and trees at bedrock made for a pleasant working environment, but now that all the excavating is done I must admit it looks a little bland down there. I'm okay with it if you guys want to take it out. Just keep a few of grass blocks around (it was a lot of work to get them there).
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: brytta.leofa on April 19, 2011, 12:29:50 AM
What about this?

- Dig out a streambed in a nice S-shape.  Dig it all the way to bedrock, then add some torches in the deepest bits and a layer of glass to protect them.  Fill with water.
- Add a layer of glass right on top of the grass to prevent monsterspawning.  Keep some (most?) of the trees, but add a single layer of glass on top of the foliage.

At night, we should be monster-safe, but with illumination only from the moon and stars above (seen through the water) and a softly glowing stream.  The one troubling thing is how to keep the flowers...

Minecraft is whatever you want it to be.  If you want to round up a hardy gang of adventurers for exploration in the deep unknown, so be it.  If you want to dungeon delve, get a sword and a suit of armor and start digging.  If you want to strike out into the great beyond and build a distant fortress from which to rule all you see, you need only pick a direction and start walking. The choice is yours.

So Minecraft Beta 1.6 has a release date of "not soon," according to Notch's Blog. (http://notch.tumblr.com/post/5136312534/fixing-bugs-enabling-nether)  It is going to feature nether compatibility and map making.

I'm thinking about resetting our server when it finally does release.  The world file would, of course, be available for download by all.  I'm mentioning it now so we can discuss it and be prepared.

Cool!  There are also plugins available to install on this server now.  A couple I would like to try out are mcMMO (which would add skills and XP and is actually a pretty good mod that is fun) and LWC (which is a security mod allowing you to lock your own chests).  Look for these in the next couple days and let me know if there are any problems or bugs.

Trying to think of how a mod for that might work. Iron becomes copper, gold becomes water, sand becomes grassy ground, water and dirt become sand? Trees become cacti and cacti become trees.

Wow, someone took all the TNT I'd been saving up (I had at least 40 stacks of 64) and blew up my whole base. I don't even know what to say to that.

Well, the last time I logged on was last night at about 9 PM CST, I think? Everything was fine then. I logged in again at 8 AM CST today to find everything blown to smithereens. :<

Actually, I'm pretty sure I know who it was and when it happened, and I may have even spoken to the culprit.  I'll need to get the logs to figure out what their name was.
Title: Re: Minecraft

Ok, I sent in a roll back request.

Whoever wants to play is going to have to send me their usernames in PMs so that I can add them to the whitelist.  I've got samira, valeria, brytta, and spacewars added already, but I can't remember/haven't met the rest of you.

Logging in worked just fine for me (except that my roommate's downloading is making it too laggy to play).

The server is down right now, which is probably why you can't log in, Samira.  My moderators are running a map checker on the world file to make sure everything rolls back all right.  I'll let everyone know when it's back up.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on May 19, 2011, 04:44:02 PM
We should be good to go.  The map checker had to delete 3 map chunks because they were corrupted.  Hopefully we did not lose any content.  Samira, let me know if you're still having trouble.

spacewars I do not know where your base is, but I am pretty sure its ok.  From what I have been able to piece together, the bomber was not online for long and logged out immediately after committing their act of vandalism.

Everyone else: To reiterate the rules, griefing is not allowed.  It says so clearly in the server rules here (http://lauracraft.minehost.org) and there are signs posted at spawn when you first log in as well.

I am totally cool with the idea of pvp, and when we do a server reset sometime in the near future (beta 1.6 comes out next week according to notch's twitter!) I believe I am going to enlist some of you to help me demarcate a large pvp and griefing-friendly zone where you can go bananas on each other as much as you like.

For now, please do not grief.  Thank you!  8)

Good call, but I don't know where to get an earlier version of minecraft to work with my server.

I've found out that 1.6 is almost irreparably broken anyway, which is why our server hasn't been updated to it.  Our hosts refuse to update until the game is stable, which I have to say is probably a wise decision.

MAJOR SERVER ANNOUNCEMENT

I have submitted a request to the minehost admins to save our map file and make it available for download.  Once they do this, I will go ahead and have the server reset and we will start with a fresh world.

This should happen within the next day or two.

Remember, you will still be able to access our old world in singleplayer mode if you choose to download the worldfile.  I will keep everyone posted.


One idea I had with the new world was to designate a fairly large area as a "pvp only" zone.  You would be free to try and kill each other as much as you want in this zone.  If anybody wants to help me mark out the boundaries to this zone once the new world comes into being, let me know.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on June 05, 2011, 12:31:14 AM
ATTENTION:

Please feel free to download our world at this link - the file dated 6/3 will be the most current:

http://lauracraft.minehost.org/backups-53j4qn32/

It is about 259mb in size.  The backup will be available for about a week.  After that if you want it you'll have to talk to me or somebody else that has it.  

I will be resetting the server tonight.  And I think you're going to like it.

Maybe a huge circular stone tower with lots of big glass windows & a walkway up top, so it doubles as crowsnest. Some trees planted inside for the heck of it. A garden of flowers with a gravel pathway winding through. A hatch in the middle of a stone patio right under spawn that leads down into a big cellar full of supplies.

SERVER UPGRADE

Ok, so I requested a server upgrade.  We will be getting twice the memory, which means twice the users.  Not sure when it will go through, exactly, but I'll keep you posted.

If people would like to donate, it would be greatly appreciated.  25 dollars a month is a large sum to be paying as one person, though I'm happy to continue covering the 15 dollars that we were originally being charged.  I figure I'll take whatever people donate and apply it towards the difference.  Does that sound fair to everyone?

If you want to donate, you can paypal it to me at laurajlmars[at]gmail[dot]com.

You have to buy the game to play Survival Multi Player (it's like 20 bucks, which in my opinion is a bit high for a BETA RELEASE), but I think you can still play Minecraft Classic for free.  That's not multi player, but it would give you a sense of the game.

There are mods and other steps you can take to make it run a lot better but it can still lag. I have a shitty processor, 2 gigs of ram, and a previous gen radeon x1950 and it runs okay at low settings. It's graphically intensive and also java pretty much sucks. But you can make it lag less.

Also I've found that some worlds are waaaay laggier than others.

When the server upgrade goes through, I will start whitelisting people again.  For now I would rather avoid crashes.  It should be soon, though, since I requested the upgrade last night. 

$10 a month from one person is not necessary (I've already said I'll apply what is donated to the difference, which comes out to about $10 a month anyway), but if everyone chips in ten dollars every few months or so, it'll help me keep the server running for a long time.

By the way, I think I'll just start a blog for server announcements, that way I don't get pagerolled and can easily give a link to people.

I will use it for announcements so please look there instead of here if something goes wrong with the server, I feel a little weird talking about collecting money on a discussion board for another game.   It could also be a cool place to put things like screenshots of player creations, too.

It has been upgraded!  

Please don't forget to check the blog.  lauracraft.tumblr.com

@strangeshadow: as for rules and ideas, I am all for them!  The only one I have sort of enforced design-wise in the past is: no floating sky roads.  They sort of defeat the purpose of survival.  Most people seemed to agree with that.

An eclectic kind of city could grow up out of that, I think it would be neat! And nothing's stopping them from striking off into the wilderness to build 'off grid'.

no sky roads... got it.

I tend to like my rails above ground because I enjoy looking at the scenery as it passes by.  Usually if you have something elevated a couple of squares, it'll keep the cows and stuff from wandering onto it.  But my opinion is probably not critical because I don't tend to group build very often.

In fact, I will probably be abandoning my sandstone castle shortly, now that the main part of it is done, and heading out 'off grid' shortly, to live out my hermit-like existence in the wilderness.

There's a difference between a road elevated a couple of squares to keep cows off the tracks (which is actually a good idea) and roads built at the top of the map where there is no possible risk of anything (except perhaps falling off of it.)

Roads are a great idea, because there are still things from the old server i never personally saw because i would never be able to find them. As long as people follow the rules about greifing this idea will be perfect. Put signs to say which way to go. I'm more than happy to start help building this as well.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: valeria on June 10, 2011, 12:22:20 AM
Since we can't comment on blog posts... Based on everything I have read, because only the chunks that players are currently active in are actually loaded into memory, having people spread out doesn't cause noticeably more lag.  What causes more lag is having more players active, and/or having those active players creating new chunks while other players are trying to play.  Chunk loading uses up a whole lot of CPU.  That is why I have always kept my far-ranging forays to times when I'm the only user logged in.  People don't start having noticeable world-size corruption issues and stuff until around 2 GB.

Other known lag causers are : poorly written mod add-ons, excessive flowing water and lava, excessive active mobs, excessive active item-drops (item drops in places where players are currently active), and igniting large amounts of TNT at once.  And maybe a couple other things I've missed.  World file size has never been a known lag issue.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on June 10, 2011, 12:48:28 AM
Well, I don't disagree with you (though I think we really don't know exactly how minecraft's beta-level code handles memory) and I'm not opposed to having a huge world per se, but we definitely had issues in the last instance based on the size of it.  The mods were running a "map checker" every week or so to fix the problems (increased chunk errors and corruption) caused by it's size.

Anyway, I'm not trying to limit anybody's discovery and exploration, Val, and I totally respect how much you like your far-off fortresses.  I guess to be fair to everyone, I'd maybe like this world to NOT be almost 300 megabytes in size, though.  It only seems to cause issues.  Besides, if we have ten players on, and they are spread out over ten separate chunks, that's ten chunks that the server has to keep track of.  Not to mention the nether. 

So the bottom line is: if people feel they must go out long journeys to a better world, I understand.  I just ask that if you DON'T feel led to do this, that you...don't.  I hate to rant, but I'd like to be able to get my money's worth out of this upgrade, and I feel like we'll be able to entertain more people if we keep things a little more compact.  That's all!

Only the first floor was accessible though, as the upper levels were designed to spawn monsters and pump out swag.

The blade is made of lava flowing down from the obsidian and gold hilt.

The skulls were also obsidian, and treasure flowed out of the mouth of the largest into a small pool.

So, we have a minor problem with inter-dimensional travel.

I'd built a portal in my basement and it linked up to a camp in the nether that someone else had established.  Given that we've restricted the world size, any portals built will probably connect there.  That's fine by me, but the problem is the return portal is in a dingy cave with the only access being a tunnel that comes up under a lake in the desert.

I suggest we build a new, neutral portal return complex (somewhere safe, above ground, and in a central location) and deactivate all overworld portals so that the nether will link up with it.  After that happens, I think we can turn our portals back on for 1-way travel.

Is this acceptable to my fellow portal science fanatics?

A little patience and forethought goes a long way. I tend to start with a dirt floor plan, which I leave for a day or two so I can decide on and gather the needed materials. You'd be surprised how even a few hours between layout and construction can improve the design you began with, and if you come back to it the next RL day, there are often all sorts of improvements that will be rolling around in your head.

Also, minedraft really is an excellent place to begin. When I was working with stacks of obsidian, minedraft saved me tons of time and kept me from wasting my diamond picks as I tore down to  rebuild.

Unless you find ways to keep yourself amused, though, it'll tire out quickly.

When I'm not playing on the ARM server, I'm google'ing random Minecraft Servers, of a variety.

Check out http://www.lostshard.com/

Some of the PVP servers are really fun/terrifying.

Lately I've been playing permdeath singleplayer (based on a suggestion here!) and after I die I'll post some screenshots of what I manage to make.  It's not that much though, since I had to roll around to find a good place to build and some inspiration.

I'm starting to get excited about pistons coming in though.  It leaves room for some interesting stuff if he intends to have them work like they do in the piston mod.

I foolishly decided that the perfect place to put my castle would require leveling a mountain (in my singleplayer game).

I'm uh, still working on that.

But when I'm done it's going to be AWESOME.

Be careful with updating the server to 1.7.  There is a world corruption bug in place that could cause you to lose your world.  I haven't updated my server for that reason.

the server should be running at 1.6 right now, which is stable.  I don't want to update to 1.7 until I know it's stable/bukkit will run.

The borders are still guarded but I'll consider extending or removing the borders.  If we get major performance issues they'll go back up.

I'll apply signage tonight, but folks are welcome to use it.  You don't want to go in the maintenance bunker; you want to go down the hatch like 30 blocks north of there and wait for loot in the chute.

Note to denbel : got creeper'd at the rail stop in front of your place.  Did what repairs I could, left the rest to your discretion.  I'll get the rest of the glowstone and such ASAP.

Just so everyone knows, there's also another monster generator, rife with the goods of fallen farmed fiends, along the track to CapnStabby's place.  It's hard to miss, as it is a tower that blots out the sun.  Enjoy!


Will finish a rail station at the intersection near Laura and Brytta's place.  Too tired now to finish.

I also substantially increased the border for this world.  Our world can now be up to 7500 blocks across, which is quite large.  I really like what putting a border has done for density - this server is so built up and industrial, with rails and fortresses and player buildings everywhere!  It's great.
Title: Re: Minecraft

I recently completed a small station for the rail system at the three way intersection near the center of the world.  The instructions are simple : press the signed button for your destination, and the rails will be set for you.  In this way, you don't necessarily need the piston to give you that first push.  This should make traveling by rail a bit more convenient, and it's added a bit more signage so people know where they're going.

I'll be running new track past Laura Mountain and Brytharrow until it reaches Herb's place, so keep an eye out for that!

Hey, Laura - Have you considered adding a few convenience mods?

I've been server hoping and keeping track of useful ones I've encountered. A pretty nice one was a /sethome mod where you can /sethome # (ie: /sethome 1) to set spawn points that you could teleport between by typing '/home #' (ie: /home 1).

It's pretty convenient for building and going from one place in your home to another.

There was another mod that whenever you typed '/spawn' it would take you back to where you first spawned, when starting the game.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: valeria on July 13, 2011, 04:32:06 PM
Those are already incorporated into one of the mods that's on there.  Type /mcc to see the commands list for it.  I'm positive that it has spawn set and teleport to spawn functions.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gunnerblaster on July 13, 2011, 05:00:17 PM
Ah, okay.

We should probably consider making a /help command to bring up a list of help pages. That's another thing I've found pretty handy on some other servers.

/help --> Shows list of which page has what.
/help 1 --> Commands, etc.
/help #

Those are already incorporated into one of the mods that's on there.  Type /mcc to see the commands list for it.  I'm positive that it has spawn set and teleport to spawn functions.
I figured out how to use the /myspawn and I can only use it once an hour? Are you fucking kidding me? Screw that.

The mod I was talking about let's you instantaneously teleport to wherever you have set up as a spawn - not just beds. Start at spawning point, type /sethome 1 - then walk across the world or wherever and type /sethome 2 then type /home 1 and bam - you're back at the spawn. Need to get back to your base? /home 2 - Bam, you're there.

But yeah, I'm on pretty regularly, now. I think I'm somewhat northeast of the spawn, on the coast by the super-tall mountains. I'll put up some signs at some point. Just gotta figure out what to build...

If you know a portal is still active in the outpost, you might be able to simply deactivate portals in the nether until you can find it.

Just make sure you reactivate the portal in Denbel's outpost, whatever you do.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Marauder Moe on July 14, 2011, 04:59:14 PM
I guess that could work.  If I deactivated the nether-side portal in Denbel's outpost, later on I could jump through his home portal and reactivate it (assuming the portal in his house is the one that spawned it in the first place).

I think that's what I love and hate about this game.

It's almost night? Oh shit! Time to make an underground shelter!

For a while, I actually jumped from Minecraft server to server, trying to find a sort of 'town vs. night attack' scenario.

Longer days with shorter nights, but more mob spawns at night - Creepers included.

During the day, everyone lives like normal - But at night, everyone withdraws to the town to fight through the night.

Sounds awesome, in theory, at least.

Once the Adventure update goes through, you might see more of that, but for now?  Nah.  Melee combat is too annoying in multiplayer, where you're pretty much obligated to take one or two hits when engaging anything.  No amount of gravel digging will make the necessary amount of arrows for that kind of server.

Though, there might be more efficient (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-0MpbNx1fo&feature=related) ways to use the arrows...

You can usually donate through your paypal account just by sending money to someone's email address, I thought.  You can connect your bank account to your paypal account and then send money with paypal.  Maybe it's different in other parts of the world, not sure where you're from, adrien.  But I didn't think you needed a credit card?  Maybe I'm wrong.

It costs 25 dollars per month to run the server.  I pay $15, and kind donations from Brytta and Valeria have covered the rest so far. :D

I seem to have made some mistakes.

Nope, and I think I can anticipate :

Alternating the floors : nope, yours isn't tall enough to cause significant damage, so most will probably fall.  Besides, many monsters on my generator are killed by fall damage, as evidenced by their stuff simply flowing in past the kill area.

The specific design : Seriously, it's about 10 times bigger than yours.  The specifics of the design don't really matter at that point.

Spiders rising above the lava : this doesn't just happen with spiders, but all mobs.  The lava knife takes its due.  One of many reasons I tried to make a drowning trap.

http://www.kevblog.co.uk/how-to-build-a-minecraft-mob-grinder/

I seem to have made some mistakes.

Mob grinders don't have to be as elaborate as that. Mine was built with a 20x20 footprint and tapered to 16x16 at the top. Each floor only had a single 2x2 opening in the center with water flowing in a 2-block wide channel from each wall. While mobs won't fall through the long drop, the water does a very good job of pushing them. At the bottom, I had a pair of lava blades only two blocks long that did the killing. I used two so that I could filter items through two routes; a single blade would have worked just fine.

One thing I discovered is that the water in the spawning floors can't be allowed to fall down the hole or the mobs will swim themselves to safety. Use signs to restrict flow at the hole.

This design brought in far more swag than I could actually make use of.

The pretty portion of the grinder can be seen here (http://www.zalanthas.org/gdb/index.php/topic,39735.msg613002.html#msg613002). The spawning floors didn't start until just above the tip of the sword blade.

It might be that, since January, the mob AI has been altered enough that they aren't falling down your holes without something to chase. I recommend using water to push them, rather than expecting them to find their own way to their doom.

Don't worry about Brytta, what he needs is to do is make it about 70 blocks higher, and I'm gonna start building the scaffolding to build the walls with lava.

That was a chicken.  You can either kill them for feathers in arrowmaking, or you can let them live and wait for an egg to drop.  Then you can make a cake.

As for what you do next... build a house for storing stuff.  Dig down deep into the earth to find ores for better armor, tools, and weapons.  Then, once you've conquered the underworld, open a portal into the Nether and have a frolicking good time running away from ghasts and eating the hearts of zombie pigmen.

Monsters spawn in darkness. Keep your home, underground tunnels and surrounding area well-lit.

Creepers (Creepy green things with 4 legs) explode once they come within a certain range of you - Taking you, themselves, and a sizable portion of any surrounding area. The perfect house wreckers.

By the way, everyone.  As much as I hate to say this, I am afraid we may have to reset the server come the Adventure Update.  I feel really bad about it, because everyone has done an amazing job with the server, but I believe there will be some things that people will want to experience, such as towns, new blocks, new mobs (that come with towns) and generated dungeons.  It also might be required by my server hosting company for some infrastructure reason - they usually upgrade all servers to the newest version once its known to be stable.

Maybe one of us could volunteer to host this world on a personal server while mine is used for the new adventure mode.

I don't know when the Adventure Update is scheduled to release, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up before it happened.

You don't want to know.


Anyway, I'm cool with a reset (though might be nice if you could get the world files for give to anyone who wants).  I consider this game to be building sand castles: inherently impermanent.


Also, for the new update we should have NPC preservation rules in place so people don't raze the little villages.  Maybe build glass domes over them or something.    ;D

Is there any chance we could get the Clay Soldier Mod (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/495553-173-kodas-clay-soldier-mod-v2-new-stuff/) installed on the new world?  It would be awesome to use for settling any disputes, or even gambling resources.

I had a bad thought too.  Endermen can teleport towards you.  Imagine the moment when you accidentally catch one's eye through your safehouse window.  Plus, I'm assuming (hoping) that their ability to move blocks around includes those places by players.  Do you allow it to carry on peacefully wrecking your home, or attempt to fight the (hopefully) insanely powerful creature?

I've actually been thinking of policing portals (just deactivating ones that aren't in use) so people don't end up in the middle of nowhere after stepping through their home portal.  So I'm naturally up for this type of task.

And if anyone needs further proof that the Endermen are a wonder of design, take a look at Notch's blog post (http://notch.tumblr.com/post/8208212863/the-psychology-of-the-reticle-and-the-feeling-of) regarding them.

Haha, I'm not sure my server can afford to run clay soldiers.  I think there's a couple mods I would prefer to run before that one, though clay soldiers does sound super awesome/fun and has a great potential for hilarity.

Your thoughts are all very creepy.  Do you think endermen will disassemble the npc built villages?  Maybe we need people assigned to each village as a village watch, to make sure mobs don't come in and unbuild it or go bananas on innocent townfolk.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gunnerblaster on August 01, 2011, 11:08:54 PM
As neat as it looks, I would not want clay soldier's in Laura's server.

But, man. I can't wait for this adventure update. Was listening in on some talk about it on youtube and it sounds awesome.

Armers free-roaming the land, exploring randomly generated villages, dungeons and other constructions.

Once the Adventure update goes into effect, I think we should consider splitting the server map in half, as far as who builds where. One half of the map - we leave untouched and readily available for explorers/adventurers while in pre-designated areas we have 'free-build' zones.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Dalmeth on August 02, 2011, 01:13:12 AM
Brytta and I had the idea of building a series of roads to help kickstart things in the new server.    This could do well for marking out the free-build zones as they expand from the center, and also provide convenient travel into the preserved areas so folks aren't building houses just for convenience.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Gunnerblaster on August 02, 2011, 01:29:32 AM
I'm down for that.

Roads leading from one village to another - with one "main city" consisting of all player-built constructions, perhaps. Maybe build a few player-friendly taverns/inns in the villages so players can set spawn points.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Qzzrbl on August 02, 2011, 05:07:32 AM

Tips : dig greedy, dig deep, but first, build tools.  Take a look at the wiki (http://minecraftwiki.net) to get an idea of all the things you're going to need.  The first step for a new player is usually punch out a few blocks of wood from the nearest tree, build a crafting bench, build a wooden pick, and then mine enough stone so you can build stone tools.  Then you want to defend yourself against the coming darkness (night or cave) so you'll want torches made of coal and wooden poles.  Then, if you're not exploring a cave which you can keep lit, you'll want four walls and a ceiling to keep the monsters from getting you.  A door would be nice, too.

And watch out for the creepers.

As for how to join, go to the multiplayer menu and enter lauracraft.minehost.org.   You should be logged in almost immediately.

(3) And let Roads be built at intervals of 200 metres: on lines at ±100, ±300, ±500, etc.; and the fashion of the road shall be diversely in the form preferred by local artisans; and each shall take pains to preserve the roads free of the several monstrous creatures.
(4) And let roads nowhere be raised more than fifteen metres (five blocks) above the prevailing terrain, save in the clear case of Bridges.
(5) And let each man build wheresover he will, but and he shall plainly mark the boundaries he desireth for his own improvement, showing all restraint, and let him give way at all times to the Roads.
(9) And where Railways be desired, let them be built especially beside or beneath the Roads, for the mutual easing of all men's navigation thereby.
(6) And howbeit that some shall desire an Natural Environment, they may certainly conceal the Roads that cross their domain by building through tunnels the same etc. etc.
(7) And Valeria shall in no wise feel constrained to build in the Near Thousand, only that it seemeth pleasant to by easy geographies constrain that region that we desire to preserve unto many generations and 1100 is actually quite a ways.

if you ever log into the world you will notice there is a  few huge tree reservations, one is a wolf reserve that acctually takes up an island chain in the north (down)
someone keeped leaving stacks of trees in one of my chests so i kept planting them to get rid of bones. I must have planted 1000 trees over the months on this world. there is an old growth forests behind the welcome sign, with trees twice the size of anything else on the world. Im not the only one that went tree planting mad to.

on the new world il defiantly remake the parks, and its gonna be all super sized trees (1x1 and 2x2 trunks)
i find making super trees is more satisfying then making a super castle, also the trees cut down on rain lag if you make a road under them
if anyone wants to help on the next world its really easy and your wood cutting skyrockets

 thats a good idea, I was actually considering making a very elaborate road around the entire thing and walking path threw the reserve.

we should make the reserve huge.

I've played around a little in single player, but it's not nearly as fun for me when I can't show off the results to y'all.  But with Creative Mode in the game now, I'll probably use single player for a lot of experimenting.

I'm weird in that I really, really love the SMP vibe of Minecraft, being able to chat, being able to go look at other peoples' things, helping other people with their projects, but having people mess with my stuff just bothers me, so I tend to do SMP and play out in the wilderness.  And then when I get in an SMPRage from someone building on a hill I had plans for or cutting down my favorite tree or whatever, then I play SP for a little while, but I always come back to SMP.  It's just more fun.

Anyone who can't login with the client to update... THERE IS A FIX!

Go to the minecraft site and load up the web client.  That will update your .jar and then you can run the executable client as normal and it will be 1.8.

I still can't log in to play MP, but at least I can go offline and experience the 1.8 stuff in SP.

The same thing happened to me.  As a plus, the new launcher lets you refrain from updates.  Quite a fix.

I've been playing in creative mode for a while, and I've come up with this idea : redstone ore pathways that light up as you walk on them.

Discuss.

Unfortunately, it requires redstone ore, not redstone, and that can only be provided by someone with creative mode privileges.  However, for anyone with the itch, creating pathways that light up when you walk on them is a wonderful way to waste your time.

Been playing 1.8 on a public server all day now, and I gotta say, I love the abandoned mining tunnels. Now that I know what they ARE, especially.

Also, its hella fun stopping water from falling, running in and killing all the squids that can't fight back, and unplugging the water again.

I've been playing 1.8 on a few diff servers while i wait on  Laura's to update. The main issue with stability that i've noticed is a few of the pluggins, Which i think the ones we where using are updated and the xp orbs cause MAJOR LAG, i believe it would be better to turn these off completly because as they serve no actual purpose in the game at the moment other than to make the xp bar fill up when you die it will drop everyones fps down to 1 or 0, due to the fact the xp orbs add so much lag. They do have a few small fixes for this like the orbs disappearing after so much time, but even with a 30 sec timeframe they will cause major lag for that amount of time and crash the server. My vote would be to disable the xp orbs all together which is possible because one or two of the servers have done it.
 I hope this small review full of grammatical errors and spelling errors is helpful to our situation.

Sakra and I have washed up on the shore of a deserted island.  We managed to scavenge a few branches off of the beach, with which we have made a few crude tools, but beyond that, there is no shelter or food in sight.  At night, we resort to battling with the monsters that crawl out of the ocean and gnawing on their rotten flesh to survive.  It's truly foul.  We managed to plant a few seeds near the water - who knows if they'll grow into anything edible.  I hope so.  I don't think we can last much longer out here.

Heads up, Enderman are known to make a world look absolutely horrible as they can pick up blocks.  They will also do this to any structures that you make.  I'm not sure if there is a way to disable them, but that's what I'm waiting on before upgrading my server.

A friend and I spent HOURS on a "Jail" for our server, so Grief-Response-Teams have a place to put people while they wait for admins to review their bans.

I logged in today, and the place looked a shambles, because 8 endermen spawned inside and grabbed all the blocks.

Due to the extremely large size of our world/the biomes in it, I'd like anybody who makes a new nether portal to check with the other players first.  Nether portals may become the most efficient way to travel in our world, and it makes an interesting concept.  However, due to the strange nature of size and space within the nether, portals made too close to each other in the real world have the potential to screw each other up.

If nether portals are going to be an efficient means of moving around, they need to actually work.  So!  Consult with dalmeth and voular before making one, they seem to be spearheading the public nether transportation system for our map.

We have three nether portals connected in the nether now through rudimentary tunnels.

One at Allanak (which is my village at a main body of land, cords: 4000, z:25), in the nether the portal is at x:491, z:11, y:71. It connects to Sakra's portal and Brainwright (Dalmeth's) in the nether through tunnels. They can post their own co-ordinates. But if you're new and want to get to larger bodies of land, you can find their islands (which is about 1000 blocks away from 0,0 I believe) and get into a portal. Should be easy enough. Ask any of us three when you log in!
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Sakra on September 23, 2011, 03:09:58 PM
Just an update. There is now a rail line running from my portal to Brainwrights. It currently only runs from me --> him, as it's mostly downhill. Anyone wanting to donate gold for more powered tracks is welcome.

The Nether tunnels to Voular have been widened and ghast-proofed, so it is now not only safe to travel to Voular but not claustrophobia-inducing as well.

Next up is securing the tunnel to Capnstabby's, and then we'll create a tunnel to pberge's.

That wasn't so much the problem, as it seemed that spiders are wider than one box, so anything that pushed them into a 1x1 square would just glitch out.

Though they did climb to the top piston numerous times, forcing me to don my one diamond sword.

Have any of you played with Runecraft since it was released a while ago? I remember it had some pretty unique and awesome functionality, like hidden doorways, control over daytime/nighttime, and even a way to basically Deep Well Dig. The trick was, it required some pretty forward thinking and proper tools.

Does it still work, and all? I imagine it'd be pretty fun to make a town with secret entrances into the "dungeons" or "sewers", especially if you're making Allanak. Plus, anyone that uses magick should be PK'd on sight =)

Well.. Our allanak is only allanak in spirit. It is bordered by alot of desert - but it's actually ona rather green pasture with alot of water. >_>

I say we create our own minecraft town. And it will have sliding secret doors! (I plan on building one at least today!) And so forth.. But there is also a village in the desert nearby which I have named Steinal. That could be made more to resemble allanak I suppose. But in truth, the name and the arm antics are just for fun.

It should be noted that we have paths through the nether to the territories of Brainwright, SakraEternal, Voular (Allanak), and Capnstabby.  The latter two are on the mainland, so new people looking to explore are advised to go there.  Everyone has a nice, cozy place, so feel free to stop in sometime.  All except Capnstabby have fully functional rail lines, and all are signed copiously.

Alternatively, you can head straight south, and eventually, you'll see an island with a portal on it after about a thousand meters.  That portal leads to a series of tunnels in the nether where you can access the mainland and other people's projects.

Thanks to the combined efforts of myself and Brain - There is now a safe house with a portal within sight of the spawning point.

The portal connects to Sakra's portal, in the nether, which provides new arrivals with a direct (ish) route to Allanak or any of the other "major" areas populated by players.

Ok, I talked with my server hosts, and they looked at our map to clean up any dropped items left scattered around the world that could be lagging the server (experience orbs, mob grinder leftoevers, etc.)

This is what they had to say:

Quote
Well, that's fairly amazing. There were 72,309 entities on your server, which is about ten times more than I've ever seen before. You sure you haven't got a cobble factory or automated cactus farm somewhere? That's not likely to be caused by experience orbs alone.

I don't really know what to say.  DOES anybody have a cobble factory or automated cactus farm somewhere?

Pictures, in Windows, are under Documents and Settings, <user name>, Application Data, .minecraft ... somewhere in there. By default.


Also, as far as covering the city in obsidian.... I think thats actually possible if we make a good obsidian farm. I have a small one -way- below my Tower, but its a small one. Without Super Breaker it'd be so time consuming.

That said.... It would be AWESOME. I saw a server once where someone dug into the ground and made a giant dome-structure by carving out the earth, and I've always enjoyed that kind of building. If Allanak had an obsidian cap, even the Gods Themselves couldn't peek in on all our Mine-sexing.

Hehehe. It's alright.

I can't, though. I think you put your sign down before Laura did the server mod update which made the signs permanent. Also, if you put a sign down - In the top left corner of the screen, it might say something like, "Private Sign successfully placed" or something. That means only you can take it down.

The full and official version of Minecraft will be released at Minecon on 11.11.11 - in one week!  Everyone log on to the server, take screenshots, and say your goodbyes, because we won't be running Beta 1.8.1 for much longer!

As always, I will make the old map available for download once the map is reset.

Ok, here are your choices:

a) I can update the server now and generate a new map.  I won't turn on bukkit, as bukkit will not be available.  Be warned that minecraft IS experiencing a very heavy load of users right now, and their login servers may not be working correctly.
b) I can wait for bukkit and our regular plugins to be available to generate a new map.

I am going to be heavily involved in Skyrim for the foreseeable future, so it doesn't matter to me either way.

I really wanted to see Adrien's big tower but every time I tried to find it I got lost.

I also think now is good, though I'll miss getting double diamonds with the RPG mod. *shifty eyes*

How about a new map now, then we could think about another new map once the plugins become available? And if it's not worth changing over because people are settled in, we can keep the new map.

Right now, the server is outdated anyway...

Looks like some kind of error with whatever process determines where you spawn.  It doesn't look like the server spawns you at just one spot but determines it anew at each time.  These other players don't seem to be going through that process.

Looking at the map on the server website, apparently someone did find some snow at around (X 200, Z 1000) and (X 1950, Z -200). Both very far from mooshroom land, over vast expanses of ocean. I'm considering building some basic docks on some of the major landmasses for easy access. But since boats are basically poorly-handling fragile wooden buckets of death, I might build bridges and minecart tracks instead. We'll see...

Did you alternate the grid on each floor so they don't fall too far?  It's something we did to improve our generators, and it worked like a charm.

Also, I might suggest you make each part of the grid 2x2 if the trap can handle spiders.  They drop spider eyes now, which can be quite valuable.

There is a bukkit mod that allows 28 different portals to be created completly skipping the nether.

They won't fall more than 2 blocks, use the alternating pattern in 2x2 fashion like suggest and will solve your problem.

It seems to produce a (moderately) large desert, some mountains, and you spawn in... grassy plains, I believe.

There's a bit of jungle, then a snowy forest, followed by a larger forest, followed by more desert.

I am not opposed to a map reset considering, the last map i had no inspiration to build after i made it to the snowy biome. Something just wasn't right. After all of the maps i've built on i am ready for a new start, and if we spawn in the ocean -agian- i will not play that map agian. this could have been fixed by making a new map until the spawn spawned us on land. The ocean forces us to split up but having a central spawn on land would encourage group building.

Played some MC last night after Val's graduation on our little home server, whilst drinking some merlot. The game has definitely improved since the last time I played it, though some of the new sound effects freaked me out (tool breaking, for example). But the only thing going through my head the whole time was

WINE AND MINE
WINE AND MINE

Those long tunnel digs for resources are a lot more bearable when you're sucking down some booze-ahol.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Cutthroat on January 31, 2012, 11:08:34 PM
I have built Skeleton Shack at (70, -429). Down the ladder you'll find an observation area for a skeleton spawner, which drops skeletons into a pit, damaging them enough for you to punch or shoot them for their bones, arrows, and experience orbs. Look for the giant skeleton face.

(http://i.imgur.com/0iwp7.png)

1) Go down and in.
2) Go up the ladder to the door.
3) Watch the spawner spit out skeletons.
4) Kill skeletons.
5) Don't break the spawner!

Cutthroat is not responsible for disfigurement, death, or undeath as a result of visiting Skeleton Shack.

ANNOUNCEMENT

We have found all three Strongholds.  I am slowly repairing the one near my tropical melon farm.  I am very excited to announce that the slaying of the Ender Dragon will be our server's first HRPT - once he's gone, he's gone, so let's all log on and prepare!  Once we all feel we are ready in terms of gear, potions, and other preparations, we will set a date to slay him, and then...we will enter the Ender portal!

Everyone post if you're interested in attending. :D

ya its kinda my fault to, you killed 50 I killed 100 and someone else got the others lol they go quick when 3 people kill 50+ each over 3 days.

I went out and found another 20 to add to the 4 that was left now there is 100. I also created a breading heard, anything outside of that is free game.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on February 11, 2012, 11:14:54 PM
1. Download the texture pack and put it on your desktop.  Don't upzip.
2. Download the latest version of mcpatcher (http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1021&t=252531) and put it on your desktop.
3. Paste this file path into a windows explorer browser: C:\Users\ReplaceWithYourUserName\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft --- delete the BIN folder
4. Run minecraft, download all updates.
5. Click the "Texture Packs" button once Minecraft is open and select "Open Texture Pack Folder"
6. Stick the .zip texture pack from step 1 into the folder that opens.  Close everything.
7. Run MCPatcher, ensure HD Textures, HD Font, and Custom Colors are ticked then hit Patch, then close it when it's done.
8. Run Minecraft and go to Texture Packs to select Misa's texture pack from the list.

FYI, Misa's texturepack made me lag pretty bad, though I do admittedly have a year-old laptop.

I loved it though.. if I had a higherpowered box I'd be all over that.

If you want something slick without HD graphics, I'm a fan of the Forgotten Lands (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/515735-16x11-forgotten-lands-version-16/) texturepack.

Yeah I tend to use the painterly pack or something else without HD graphics on my laptop and Misa's Texture Pack on my gaming desktop.  The nice thing about no hd graphics is you can just put the .zip file into the texture pack folder, no need to use mcpatcher.

it might have been an honest mistake  it looks like they used the blocks to hop a couple fences forgetting what kinda damage they can do for a farm, all you need is one out and boom half the animals are gone over night, its more of a bitch when it happens in real life, to be honest its a nightmare when a fence has a hole in it.

but if it happens again I will challenge the person to a fight to the death!!!! in the arena.

Progress continues, although I rarely see other people of late.. 1.2 is making things interesting but there are no jungles on laura craft I have found yet.

Problem with this is that there is a new Map format called Anvil, because of this new map format if you are using an older version map, earlier than 1.2, you will never see jungles and the content within as the map handler isn't set to do it.  Now there is supposidly a hack that allows you to force it to use 1.2, but you won't be able to change it back, and you can potentially corrupt your map.  Otherwise you have to reset your map and start over.

the updated screwed up animal breading but thats okay, it also seemed to made animals able to climb my wall with a tree and get into my gardens and break everything, thats okay to, just don't have a short tree beside a wall and your all good lol
it  really pissed me off for 5 mins but then i was laughing at how a 100 animals got into my very secure underground wheat farm, it seems any animals that where in caves below got reloaded a few squares higher then they should be to boot they where standing on my door pads letting in my cow heard to. it happens to us sometimes when you quit in your house then randomly be on the roof.... boy did i have alot of repairs to do that day heck even the pumpkin farm on the surface had animals teleported to it.
Day one of the new updated was event full for me
on a good note for the new update, Mobs drop armor on occasion and the jungles are really cool, i been to one, there is one two MC days away from the spawn. the New update also got my friends back into the game and they are now building their own empire near the jungle

hi everyone

I have sad news for all who still play on lauracraft.minehost.org...on September 3rd, 2012, Minehost will be closing its doors for good.  I definitely enjoyed using their service for over a year!

Eventually I'd like to reopen a minecraft server somewhere else, but my life is busy these days so it's not in the agenda at the moment.  For those who still play at lauracraft, I will try to make the current map available for download to anybody who wants it.  Once I figure out a solution for this I'll post the link here.

Thanks to everyone who played on my server!

Does anybody know of a stable minecraft server that is small (10-20 players)?  I'm not looking for any elaborate setup, major mods, massive group projects, or strict rules, just basically what we were playing with before.  I'd like to host a server myself, but it's not in the budget to pay any more monthly fees right now, and hosting it at home requires more bandwidth than we have in bandwidth restricted Canada.  Thanks if anybody knows of something.

I at least a few people were interested, I could look at picking up a server somewhere.  But it would be vanilla, because I've never been on the mod bandwagon.

That's cool, as long as it's somewhere moderately accessible and/or near planned public transportation.  ;D

I found a neat temple in the jungle not too far from start.  I've been living in it for the time being, but I plan to keep it preserved as an archaeological landmark.  It was full of redstone-powered traps and a secret compartment controlled by a lever puzzle!

Oh, it would also be nice if people refrained from chopping down the big jungle trees.  AFAIK they can't be re-grown that size.

I also intend to put in subways under any road(s) I build, so if anyone wants to be on a public transit route to the nether portal that's totally a possibility.  The subway station/my starting base is the only building actually 'built' thus far (and will probably suffer a huge remodel when I get things going better).

Feed-the-Beast is a modern alternative, it also holds the support of all the mod authors which the Tekkit/Technic pack has a dark history for neglecting.

No problem, it doesn't matter to be honest, its so easy to modify the game now-a-days that it isn't hard to install a mod manually. I don't think I can even play basic survival minecraft anymore without mods.

From the current state of our RAM on ValCraft even with no one currently logged in, it appears that someone left a mob spawner running.  If whoever it is could shut it off when you log back in I'd really appreciate that.  :)

The only reason I have that rule is because the server runs straight from RAM (hence the frequent "saving" messages) and one mob spawner constantly creating, keeping track of, and despawning individual mobs and items eats about the same RAM as 3 people playing, not to mention the CPU, so it's really not fair to the people who are actually playing if you leave it on when you're not using it.

Is there any way I can build a bunch of rooms in my castle and get npcs to spawn?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: LauraMars on April 10, 2013, 01:59:36 AM
Yeah. You'll need to lure zombie villagers into your castle somehow (good luck with that, Mr No Stairs) and cure them by splashing them with a weakness potion and then feeding them a golden apple.  They will turn back into a regular villager in a few minutes.  If you have two villagers they will breed.  They will breed to 35% the amount of doors in the "village" - so if you have 100 doors in your castle, you'll have 35 villagers.  Scale down accordingly, because 35 villagers is a LOT of villagers.

When's the reset? Exploring new worlds is always the most fun.

As soon as 1.6 is released, which is supposed to be Monday, July 1.  You will need to download the new launcher (https://mojang.com/).  Is it weird that the #1 thing I'm looking forward to is... carpets?

We did not have large biomes set last time, but I'd be happy to experiment with that on this next map.  The wiki says that they'll be about 4x as big as in last map, which would potentially allow more than one person to claim a desert/jungle/mountains/etc without running into each other during expansion.

If you are (or anyone is) really opposed to it, we don't have to do it.  On the one hand, it would potentially allow deserts with more than one or two good dunes, and we could 'Nak it up.  On the other, running distances between biomes would probably be increased.

I'm kind of interested in checking it out, but I don't have a strong opinion.

A few of the large biomes worlds have just been complete water-worlds for me, at least when using the snapshot.  I think it might be bugged, but it could be fixed when 1.6 actually comes out. Try using the seed 'zalanthas' to generate a default world and you start in a snowy forest, try using the same seed to generate a large biomes world and you start underwater, with water everywhere.

What's happening is that our RAM maxes out, which shuts down the server.  It's then unavailable until I can manually restart it. 

Unfortunately I forgot my password, the brute force detection hated me, and I had to retrieve my password to do that, so... yeah.  It should be back up now.  1.6 is really hard on the RAM.

I've decided to double the dedicated RAM to our server (mostly because I decided to change my payment method... might as well bill me semi-annually if I've been running this and playing on it for this long).  That should help some of the lag problems we saw when we were getting 5+ players.

With the upgrade, I also put the chunk viewing distance back up to the default.  I don't think anyone noticed that I made that change but me, but it did help with the lag for a while.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: valeria on August 16, 2013, 03:26:19 PM
When I upgraded the server, we lost all of the old server settings.  Meaning that until I figured out what happened, whitelisting was disabled.  I only realized this when I noticed that someone dug a hole in one of my buildings.  If you're missing stuff, I apologize.  This should be fixed now.

I went through my old PMs and put everyone back on the whitelist.  If for some reason I missed putting you back on the whitelist, shoot me a PM.  My PMs go to my email, so I will definitely see them faster than you banking on the next time I decide to log in to the Arm forums.

I have a heavily modified (160 mods) Forge server that I am running.  I'm about to move it over to a professional host which can support it better.  With this move, I am open to the idea of inviting a few people from Arm over to it.  The world is sorta new, and we're running 1.6.4 at the moment with pretty much all the Direwolf20 mods (that are updated for 1.6.4) plus many more.  It is a custom mod pack in which we're using the Technic Launcher which allows us to change out the mods as we see fit.  Typically I've only invited IRL personal friends and their friends, and we have typically at most 5 people on.  With the new host I can definitely add in a few more if interested.  Oh, and the server is on Hard mode, so starting out it can be pretty damn difficult, but we're having fun with it.  If you're interested, let me know via PM.

If you give me some sort of way to launch it through the Tekkit launcher I'll come play with you guys. You can add custom packs to it.

Can't really distribute "custom mod packs" like that without someone throwing a bitchfit unless they're not dickhard about their adfly download page.

Then how is the Technic Launcher getting away the hundreds of different mod packs that are available?  Our pack is marked private, we're not making any money off of it, and not just handing it out to everyone.  I'm not really worried about that at all.

The modpacks that come default with the Technic Launcher all have an agreement to be distributed as such.

Every now and then, a modder will say, "No, I want everyone to use this adfly link to get my mod" and it gets dropped from the pack. I believe that's why Railcraft wasn't in any of them for a while, and I remember Balkon's Weapon Mod went through something similar.

Unless something's changed in recent years.

I got an official cease and desist  and threats of legal action from a couple of modders about a year and a half ago when I had a number of mods all lumped together in a quick and convenient one-download-dropbox. >_>

So yeah... Just be careful with how you handle it, because some of them are indeed petty enough to go through the trouble. :p

Oh I understand, if one of them wants to do so, then I'll remove their mod and post about it so the masses can see it.  I make nothing off of running this, if anything, I lose money... if someone wants to be that petty, let them.

Nothing, maybe some save games/levels.  The game doesn't run well on on computer.

Sorry, I think I have misunderstood you.

I was able to get Infinity running before with around 10ish people without much lag, but that was prior to the current version.  I'd have to test it out.

Feed the Beast

A mod pack of varying and really optional complexity. Personally I don't have much interest in a great deal of the things on offer other than stuff like the Twilight Forest and the expanded biomes and what have you.

Making nuclear missiles and so on holds no interest for me.

That's why I like the fact you don't have to use any of it.  I like picking one of the mods in the pack and working with it, Thaumcraft for example is a TON of fun and had a crap ton of content in it.

However.. I was blown away by the Game of Thrones servers I visited.. and LoTR..

Toss up a server on Blightfall modpack.. technic launcher. Can pretend the alien beasts (aggressive, fast and evil chickens, pigs, sheep and
cows), that can easily KILL YOU..... are your every day 'meks and dujats and creepy crawlies..

Nah, just a personal game, though I wouldn't be opposed to switching to a server and playing there instead if you put one up.

I went ahead and put in a nether portal between our bases Brytta.  I don't know that you've been able to get on, but it spawns pretty much right into a dungeon.

Anyone who logs in can feel free to use the enchanter in Casa Val-ika :) With the brewing station, that's fine too, just be considerate.  The netherwart farm isn't fully online yet and with all the wither skeletons the blaze powder is kind of a pain to obtain.
