Re: Minecraft

Haha, Minister for Lag - IFX. WTF! hahaha

I'm on now, click the toolbox, never comes up, click it again. I walk away, it comes up. I make some picks and shovels. Walk away, it comes up again, all of my picks and shovels are gone.

Re: Minecraft

I'm considering moving the server to an online service that hosts it for you. Running 100% of the time. No lag. Always backed up etc...

$15/month for everything.

Sound like a good deal? You can cancel anytime and what not.

Re: Minecraft

I personally don't really want to pay for anything.

Who is responsible for the hole in the ground that goes into a huge cave with lots of candles? I'm thinking Spraggy since after about 20 minutes of feeling completely screwed I finally find some stairs that said something about Spraggy making something.

I had 1 wooden pick at half life and like 20 blocks of stone. I would have been screwed if I didn't end up finding stairs. haha

Re: Minecraft

Hey guys, best option would probably be to just hitch on to someone elses server.

I just found this one. It was just put up 1 or 2 days ago and is hosted on a sweet machine. No lag at all. A few nifty features. No hacks that I've seen, and since its so new, no grief that I've seen yet either (in my 2 hours of extensive experience).

(i hope this isnt violating any spam rules. I am not affiliated with them, just figured it would be a nice solution)
server: mc.ufg.me
http://unforgivengaming.com/

They seemed very receptive to new users. Admins were nice and there were maybe 5 others on when I was.

I went through the north portal, if anybody wants to carve out a 2+2 area.

I made the mine. Spraggy found some diamond so I made a sign to commemorate that.

Re: Minecraft

That new server that Belok posted is pretty good. No lag at all and the guys in there are pretty friendly. They didn't mind us being there and said the server can hold about 200 people.

I think you guys should move over with them (and us ) and get something going there. They have votes to get back to daylight, there are mobs (with no lag), and whatever else.

I just logged in now to check it out. Last night I dug a little hole just to protect myself and have a place to put some chests and my tool bench. I also made a glass platform with 1 row of wood around the outside on 3 sides. When I went and checked it out I had a sign in front of my entrance saying "Piss Off" with the guy's name, and then some of my wall on 2 sides had been destroyed. Nobody was on for me to say anything to so I don't know what I can do about that?

Anyways, if anybody new joins in, go through the North portal.

Re: Minecraft

I don't know who that guy is. It's a new name I don't recognize. Everyone else from last night was pretty cool.

When I entered the game for the first time I walked through the portal and there was some bones and feathers lying there. About a half hour later or so a guy asked if anyone had some bones. I gave him the 2 I picked up. He gave me 3 diamonds.

I was also asking a few questions and they were answering without any problems.

I don't know about this guy, but I suspect he was the one who destroyed some of my stuff. I'm a little suspicious that some of my iron was taken out of my oven, but I can't remember if I left something in there. I'm pretty sure I did as I wanted to see if they still smelted while I wasn't in game.

I'd be happy to chip in a $ or two a month (if stars transfers are ok). The current solution is not working too well and servers where people ruin your stuff and posts signs telling you to piss off doesn't sound too attractive no matter how nice they are when you're logged on...

As far as I know nobody else has had their stuff messed with. I didn't have much to begin with, just 1 row of wood, which you can go out and cut down a tree easily. I'm not sure what is going on. Maybe I started building where he wanted to be? I don't know.

Belok is straight ahead as soon as you come out of the gate. I am off to the right near where there are like 2-3 ponds. If you come out of the gate facing Belok's building, I'm to the right, past the one already made building. I am also IFX on there.

Re: Minecraft

I'll get on now for a little bit.

There was a punk on their earlier who kept attacking eighty6 and I. I don't know what was going on, but there were invisible zombies that kept attacking me also. It was annoying, but then he left.

Last night there was like 4-5 people on, everyone was talking. Now there is like nobody on so I can't even figure out if there is anything I can do.

Re: Minecraft

I have skype, just recently got it.. But I'll get on this server and see whats good but we need to land a home.

I'd be willing to pay a few $'s a month but the US govt. has made transfers difficult for me..

Re: Minecraft

They restarted the server and then it crashed at one point. It was working fine for me.

Minecraft is definitely more fun in MP as you can go around and look at what everyone is doing and gives you a sense that you can show of your own stuff.

Re: Minecraft

Found my first monster spawner. It was just by a bit of luck as I had to travel overtop of lava. I just wanted to get some iron that was on the ceiling, but that lava was going back this small hallway so I broke through the other side and then I saw the fire in the dark. Barely stayed alive. It looked like a cube with a small pig spinning around. In the chest I got redstone, iron, a saddle, a bucket, and some wheat.

Still having a hard time finding diamond.
