    It makes it easier to build because you don't have to worry about scaffolding. Makes building underwater easier too because flight ignores max player velocity in water.

    Building underwater is pretty easy if you get respiration on your helmet and you make yourself a small air bubble on the bottom of the ocean. You really don't need flight for that. Just a thought.

    i've got my own little private server and we have that set up on there already. we switch between creative and survival mode to cheat things into existence (meanwhile my girlfriend is stuck in survival :p)


    i saw that comment about flying airships and 1.6 and got excited, but it seems its not an official thing.

    The airship would basically be building or live size model kind of thing. I know that Ford can make nice live size models of sailing vessels, oil rigs etc., so that's why i propossed it to him to make an airship.

    Question about this server. I was wanting to maybe make one on a VM on my file server. How much memory would you recommend I provision for the VM? Looks like there needs to be a lot.

    The more players and more memory you'll want. I would experiment with it. Start with as little as 1Gb and if it slows down on you, just allocate a bit more and try again. Personally I never ran into issues with 1Gb, but I was also the only person playing on it.

    just made a minecraft troll on my friends minecraft server, to screw with my brother.


    basically he wanted a powered rail car system set up between two very far apart islands, so we did just that. at one point it goes into the side of a mountain, you'd expect it to come out the other side.

    it does not. it comes out into the ocean and kinda... stops. dropping you straight down. onto an open trap door. into what will soon be a pit of lava :3

    A lot of factors go into determining this. I have so much RAM in my server because of the FTB server. But the main server by itself will idle at about 900MB usage, this is because of all the bukkit mods I have running. The more mods you have the more memory it will use, the number of people on the server will also affect the amount of memory the server will use.

    I'd say dedicate at least 2GB to the VM, because the Minecraft server likes at least 1GB for itself. You might have to go up from there.

    Will the server be updated to 1.6.2 in the foreseeable future?

    I'm waiting on Bukkit to release at least a beta build that supports 1.6.2 before updating the server. If there isn't a Beta build out by this weekend I'll probably try one of the Developmental builds, but those can be rather unstable.

    I have a question that I hope you guys will answer here so I don't have to make a thread, although it is off topic.

    Does anyone know of a basic mine craft printing guide that is printable for my brother. I found this but even if I cut out some pages it is like 12 pages I would be printing. I am hoping to find something more space efficient on paper.

    I use this image:
    http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/File:DataValuesBeta.png

    It doesn't tell you how to make anything, just what is available. Mind you, some of the stuff on there is in beta so it isn't available.


    That PDF you found looks pretty good (albeit the pictures are huge). Maybe just save it on his desktop or something so he can reference it if he needs to?

    Its my brother. He is 8 and is a picky one. He asked me to print something out for him so I don't have to be his minecraft teacher. If I don't find anything better I will just print out what I want from there.

    You know what. It does. Why look for one when I can make one. I'll just throw what I want into a word document and and print that out. Simple idea that I just did not think of.

    Just using alt+tab would work too.

    I discovered that the new launcher allows people to choose an older MC version. So I can acces the server again, jay!

    I ended up not having the time to update the server last weekend, I'm going away for a family reunion this weekend, so I'll try to get the server update one night this week after work. I can't guarantee all the plug-ins will be working, but I'll at least have it updated to the lastest version.

    Worked most of the day updating the server to 1.6.2. I'll just say it is really annoying working with developement builds of bukkit and developement builds of plugins...

    Anyway, everything should be working, but let me know if it isn't.

    P.S. Sorry Ford, I still haven't got Warps2Dynmap working, I just ran out of time today. I'll work on it tomorrow.
