    Server Updated to 1.4.4. So let me know if anything is broken, a lot of the plug-ins didn't update yet, but since this is a minor bug fix update I'm not as worried. Of course 1.4.5 is supposed to be coming out next Tuesday, so yeah...

    I'll be away on vacation next week so I don't know when I'll update to 1.4.5.

    Is it ok to only use sand for the top layer(s) when filling/leveling? We still have a ton of dirt to use and leftover stairs, furnaces, workbenches etc. can be good filling material too. I already did this a bit but realised I could better ask.

    I'd prefer it be all sand but if it isn't, oh well. I think the top layer of sand will eventually have to be replaced too because Enderman will tear it up. The main thing is it has to all be leveled and lit up so the pyramid itself can be finished.

    Does it have a special reason it needs to be all sand?

    Faster to place; ensures no holes.

    :D

    New server built, and Windows installed, hardware overclocked and stress tested over the Thanksgiving holiday. :rockout:

    Final Specs:

    CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1605T @ 3.6GHz(x4 960T Unlocked)
    RAM: 8GB(2x4GB) Corsiar LP DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24
    HDD: 2x 500GB WD Blue in RAID1
    Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X Evo
    GPU: eVGA 9600GSO(Server Runs Headless)
    PSU: Corsair CX430 v2
    Heatsink: Xigmatek Gaia SD1283
    Case: NZXT Source 210

    I let it sit stress testing with OCCT for 60 hours and it passed, so I'm happy with the unlock and overclock.

    Now I just have to find time to get minecraft setup from scratch on the new machine and move the world over. I'm really busy at work, but I hope to have everything up and running on thenew server by Christmas.

    Might have to pay a visit back to the TPU MC server when I get a chance that pyramid seems like it will be awesome. Thankfully I am still whitelisted from when I first bought Minecraft :D

    Do you use Windows when you run the Minecraft server? I was pretty happy with running it on Linux when I used to run a server when I played by myself.

    You should come and help. I'm sure Ford would appreciate it considering this thing is monstrous.

    The server has a Terraria server running on it too. Terraria uses XNA so it requires DirectX and .NET meaning Windows is best.


    Yeah. I've been mining sand from inside the walls of Kard and have been using it to level the base of the pyramid. It's very time consuming but I am making progress. :D

    I'm thinking I already have enough sandstone stored to finish the pyramid once the base is ready.

    Maybe I will get a chance to play this weekend. Not sure whether I will help you again with the pyramid or I will continue on the expanion of Winterfell Castle though, next time I will be online.

    Oh, it's Saturday! This is news to me. XD


    Edit: I put 8 chests of sand next to the iron pyramid. I dunno if it will be enough to finish leveling it but it should be a good start.

    Edit: I'm growing patatoes and carrots in the Kard Market. I'll be replacing some of the wheat in the piston farms with carrots and patotoes (it'll be 1/3 patatoes, 1/3 carrots, 1/3 wheat).

    Oh... I forgot to mention the fact that there is a small tater field in Hutton. Anyway, you found taters and rots somewhere so you are set. I might take some rots from the piston farm later, in order to make another small rot field in Hutton (the villagers need food too ;)) and in Winterfell East (in another greenhouse, together with some taters).

    ...and thanks for a contribution of chests from Ford, the zombie grinder's storage capacity has been expanded by... a lot. :)

    Do we have a zombie grinder? I know we have XP (spiders), Skeleton and Golem grinders (the latter being a collector actually) but I did not now about the Zombie one.

    Yeah, after the server was upgraded I came across a spawner near the surface right in the middle of the little cape I'm building on. Ford made the grinder itself, I'm just making it look pretty. :)

    There's a skeleton grinder in my home as well...

    I'll help with the pyramid when I get the chance ;) It's WAAAAYY bigger than it looks on the map.
