Spawn #2 has begun! IP: Port: 25585

We are now at -20420,20420. All player inventories, including Ender Chest contents, have been wiped. Every chunk not visited before the start of November is now deceased (though I have a backup on my machine). We've also updated to 1.11, which includes Shulker Boxes.

The server remains on Hard mode, which will make for a significantly greater challenge in the early game. Also, /back and /home now cost in-game currency, to prevent them from being too easily abused. You need to /sell blocks to charge your currency. /sell hand to sell what you're currently holding.

We had talked about perhaps avoiding some farms. I'll leave this up to the community to figure out, but let's consider carefully how we do farms, as that's one of the fastest ways to reach the endgame of a server. One option is to allow farming, but not shared public facilities. So if you farm, at least for now, keep it on the dl.

Post any issues and of course your sexually-arousing builds!

Did you refresh The End too? I remember we raided the nearby end cities and ships when the elytra came out so we'd have to go pretty far to find new ones
Anyways, awesome. I'll definitely be on tonight even though I don't have much time just to start a base and claim some land

I think you should up the price of the /home and /back commands, I sold 45 pieces of redstone and got like 1500, if the price for /home'ing is only 100 its probably going to be overused anyways
Also you should put in a death counter for everyone, seems kind of fun and I'd love to know how many times I've and every body else has died since starting

I'll definitely be on some over the next few days since its a long weekend

Server spawn broke :/
After my first death I kept respawning in a pool of lava underground, without enough time to swim to safety.
ps - started making a house though :)

Fuck, it's like 'Nam in there right now, gents... Should be fun to try expanding out.

>Server spawn broke :/
Ahh, goddamn! Should be fixed now. They said the y coord didn't matter in the docs. They lied.

>Did you refresh The End too?
Renamed the world folder for The End, which should hopefully do it.

>I think you should up the price of the /home and /back commands
OK, hmmm ... let's keep an eye on it. The idea is to make deaths hurt a little bit. I want people to still be able to use it, but just not go crazy on it. Maybe worth slowly increasing over time. Testing stage right now

>Also you should put in a death counter for everyone
Tried to do this (counter on the score screen) but it only counts deaths since you logged on, for some reason. Even though it's referring to stats.deaths. I don't really understand why. Not much documentation on it. Anyway, better than nothing.

Download the minecraft client from their website, it shoudl probably be at the latest version which is what were at, then press play and when it starts up press multiplayer. then add server and you can name it whatever you want what really matters is the IP and port. so in the IP/host section type in 198.20.68:25585
thatll connect you

Read up a little on it, seems to be a client issue. Usually resolved if you just wait a little. You might try connecting to other servers and seeing if you have the same issue.

Hey folks. Important update with the MC server.

The funding for the server will last until March 19th, and then it's run out again. The bill is $35.88. I've been involved with other things, so I don't really have an interest in shelling out $35 for another year. It definitely seems like it's just a few people these days as well.

Let me know what you guys want to do. If someone wants to step up and pay, we can do that. (Can give you admin creds as well of course, if you don't already have them.) Or I can share the world file on a Google Drive. But, we have to decide within the next week, before they try to re-charge the card and the funding fails.

Right now we're just trying to figure out if it's worth funding another year. People still play but it's usually just one person on at a time.

We have to figure it out by this Saturday.

noneinterested - Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:33:47 EST ID:Qz1G3rUi No.696349 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Linode's not cheap, I use it for a different game I work on and we pay $100/mo, though admittedly for extremely good service. There's the budget hosting services, but the problem with Minecraft servers is that they aren't multithreaded. So you can have 8 CPUs but it will only use 1. That means it all depends on having 1 very fast CPU. Hard to get that unless you pay specifically for a Minecraft-related host.

This shit is $35 a year, honestly a really good deal considering it does everything we need it to.

Here is the provider we use. We are using the very bottom barrel plan, 2.99/mo. https://www.beastnode.com/budget-minecraft/ Which is basically 1GB RAM, a processor that seems shitty but somehow runs it, and 5GB storage, which is about the minimum needed for the current world.

I'm really pissed off that the beastnode link doesn't talk about what CPU the server runs off though. Almost like they did it intentionally.

Hey Bill. Yep, would need account info. I can give you the creds to manage it if you like, and/or can continue to maintain it when I have free time.

If you decide to do it, send an email to [email protected]

Only a little time left though. Not sure what happens if we don't pay in time. They probably keep files for a week or so.

You're welcome to do as you like with it too, naturally. Open for pirates, go Creative, etc

I'm not informed at all how to run servers but I'd be willing to help foot the bill.
the game is basically minecraft + 99 gams of dank

I know I've said it before but I would just love to see the insanity that we could cause. And the building is so much more eloquent because you need to build defensively as well.

Nice one, thanks for doing that Bill! HEROOOOOOOOO!!!!

I haven't been on in awhile, been pretty busy lately. So I'm not the best judge of how to do things. But, we've talked about opening this up to pirated accounts. I think maybe we could do it safely like this:

  • Disable online mode, meaning there are no password checks made for a particular account. Pirates can log in.
  • Use a plugin like this: https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/loginsecurity So for the 1st time they're playing it, people have to /register a username with a password, and each time you join the game you have to /login (pass). If you don't log in you can't move, see much or use commands.
  • Increase the rate that grief protection blocks are acquired, and make it a longer amount of time before claims expire. Then encourage everyone to register their claims so their shit doesn't get griefed.

Would still mean we'd have to watch things more carefully, but it would definitely mean more people would play, too.

Hey Bill, happy 4/20, man.

While you're here, what do you think about >>696820 and opening up the server to pirated accounts? Might be able to attract a few more who wouldn't play otherwise. With the password thing it should be pretty safe overall. And we could still ban people by IP/machine ID if they were being dicks and coming back on multiple accounts.

If you let pirated people play, then my girlfriend and my friend would probably play too, so you'd get 3 more people. Idk how active we'd be but, there you go

I think I was deadhead-something on the server previously. I do still own MC but since I know more people who play it on PS4 and can play with my friends easily (who don't want to pay for MC themselves), I mostly stick to that.

OK man, if you want to take it on, all yours. I'm happy to give it a go as well -- just let me know.

Basically the password extension would need to be installed for a little bit, so that all the currently-registered players could log in and /register, and then maybe a week later it could be opened up to pirated clients.
