    I'd say just "No griefing (destroying other people's stuff or killing other players on purpose)." Three strikes out.


    How fat is your pipe? Just one player uses over 0.3 Mbps upload. It doesn't take much of a computer to run a Minecraft server but it does take a lot of bandwidth.

    Right now it is on my DSL connection with 2Mb/s upload. If that starts to get bogged down I can move it over to the 10Mb/s Comcast line. These are the actual speeds, not the advertised.:toast:

    Very nice. You might have to figure out how to run the .jar if you haven't already. The executables are limited to 1 GiB of RAM. I tried to get the jar to work on my Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition but I had no success. :(

    McMyAdmin uses the jar. I've already increased the RAM to 1.5GB, but it won't launch with anything higher due to the machine only have 2GB of RAM.

    too bad i cant join because i pirated the game :( (i dont have paypal and too young to get a credit card) maybe you can switch "online-mode=true" to "online-mode=false" in the server.properties?
    [​IMG]
    ("online-mode=false" doesnt means everyone cant connect, it means that everyone can connect to the server even pirate players(like me) can enter and play in the server server. if you switch it then i will be happy to join your server. And im not a low life griefer, i am a Top Player in 13 different server(the servers are gone) when im playing the free(minecraft classic) version.
    What plugins you have for the server??

    That does not work if the server is running a whitelist. Your username is comes from the minecraft.net servers. Just fine some one that can gift you a code in some other payment form.

    Besides that, I'm not going to do anything to condone/help piracy of this awesome game.

    Post a WTB thread on the forums here, I'm sure someone will be willing to work a deal to buy a gift code for you and you can pay them with some other form of payment.

    On another note, did anyone notice that Notch donated $2,000 to the Humble Indie Bundle?

    Couldn't you just get one of those Paypal Top up cards and buy the game that way ?
    Take the card to a shop top it up with cash like you would on a mobile.

    Also haven't been on the server yet newtekie1 been abit busy will be on over the weekend though.

    I jumped on the server last night for about 1 minute and it seemed to be okay even with my crappy satellite connection.
    Anyone know what kind of bandwidth it might use (like bytes/minute or per hour)?
    Don't want to go over my limit or they cap my speed at something painful, like 64Kbps

    How about some screens of what people are working on.
    When I spawned I was on a brik platform with a brick building.
    I saw the big TPU sign but didn't head in that direction for lack of time.

    I'm not too sure, I can tell you that the server uses about 1GB per day right now, but that is sometimes with no one connected and sometimes with multiple people connected.

    Maybe that means MineCraft will be in a future HIB? That would be awesome.


    Pretty hard to miss what I'm working on. XD

    I'm not sure if I am getting lag on the server as I didn't see anyone in the short time I was on.
    Saw some chatter from Ford in the chat thingy. I'll have to figure out how to use that too. lol

    T = chat
    F = change draw distance (every press moves it closer)
    Q = drop one of selected item
    W, A, S, D = move
    SPACE = jump
    Left Mouse = attack
    Right Mouse = use
    Shift = sneak (only useful for not falling off anything).
    F1 = hide GUI
    F2 = take Screenshot (goes in C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\screenshots)
    F3 = show coordinates, memory usage, etc.
    F5 = switch 3rd/1st person perspective

    F actually changed the rendering distance, moving the fog closer or further away in the process. This forces a redraw yes, but that isn't the intended purpose.

    Yeah, I'm hoping.

    Hmmm. ...
    If one player is pulling 300Kbps average (as Ford stated), that's a little over 1Gb/hour (135MB/hour).
    If I played one hour a day, every day, for a month I would hit 4.05GB down.
    That still within my 7GB cap (in a rolling month). :rockout:

    Time to shut off all automatic updates to preserve precious MC bandwidth. :roll:

    That is only if you are always connected and tavelling on the server a lot. Once the area loads, the bandwidth is pretty low.

    newtekie1, could you restart the server? I'm mining and nothing I mine can be picked up. I've reconnected 3 times and it still won't pick it up. :(


    Edit: Nevermind, it's working again. That was strange.

    Edit: Ah, my inventory was full. XD

    Unfortunately, the game was unplayable last night on my craptastic satellite connection.
    At times it would be almost a minute to see changes (even the chat text took forever to appear).

    Oh well, I guess it's single player for me. :/

    But post pix once in awhile. I do enjoy seeing what you guys/gals create. :toast:
