Please PM me for details and to be added to the whitelist. Include your Minecraft username in your PM if it is different than your TPU username.

Sponsors:
FordGT90Concept - Donated the license to McMyAdmin Professional! As well as donating countless hours moderating the server.
-KarL- - Monetary Donation to help pay for a new heatsink and case for the server upgrade.
Chevalr1c - Monetary Donation to help pay for a new heatsink and case for the server upgrade.
jpsandman - Donated 16GB of RAM to upgrade the server.


Server Address: tpuminecraft.servebeer.com
FTB Server Address: tpuminecraft.servebeer.com:25566

Latest map of the server can be found here: http://tpuminecraft.servebeer.com

Current Server Version: 1.6.2
FTB Mod Pack: Direwolf20 Pack


Rules:
  • To join the server you must be a member of TPU for at least 2 months.
  • Failure to follow these rules will result in you being banned from the server.
  • Absolutely no griefing!
  • Any griefing will result in a permanent ban, no questions asked, and no possibility for pardons for any reason.
  • Respect others and what they have built.
  • Do not teleport anyone else. Teleport yourself and your yourself only!
  • Do not teleport to someone else unless you ask first. Teleporting to someone else without asking can be considered griefing, as it could expose a secret location, and as such will be considered a bannable offense.
  • I will not spawn resources, that defeats the point of the game. So don't even ask.
  • Do not lock other people's chests. This will be considered griefing, and you will be banned accordingly.
  • If you mine a hole, back fill it with something.
  • Label anything you are building with a sign placed in an obvious location. The sign should have who is building the structure, and what it is/going to be.
  • Be respectful of the land. If you cut down a tree try to replant it, unless you are clearing the land.
  • Fix creeper damage when possible. If a creeper explodes near you, try to fill the hole back in entirely. DO NOT just cover the hole with a single layer of dirt, fill it completely.

Useful Commands:
/warp <warp name> - Warps you to the warp location. If you fall through the world, disconnect and reconnect or you will die.
/warp list # - Displays a list of available warp locations on the server where # (optional) is the page number
/tp <Player1> <Player2> - Teleports Player1 to Player2's position. Use this on yourself only! I can see the tp command in the logs, and I will take action if this is abused.
/players - Displays a list of players connected to the server.(While this still works, it has been replaced with the native method of holding Tab.)
/flight toggle - Turns Creative style flying on/off.

Basic Server Specs:
Processor: Phenom II x6 1605T @ 3.6GHz (Unlocked x4 960T)
Memory: 32GB DDR3-1600(4x4GB)
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X Evo
HDD: 2x500GB 7200RPM SATA in RAID1 + 32GB Flash Drive for Minecraft Data Backup
Battery Backup: APC Smart-UPS 1500
OS: Windows 7 Professional SP1
GPU: GT220 512MB(Server runs Headless)
Max Players: 32
Max FTB Players: 8


To create a lockable chest, create the chest(single or double), then place a signpost directly beside a chest. Enter [Private] as the first line. Your own name will automatically be entered on line 2 as the chest owner. Optionally type in the full names of two other users allowed to access the chest's inventory on lines 3 and 4.

When done correctly, the sign will automatically fix itself to the side of the chest, protecting it from unauthorized access! Only the chest's owner can then break the sign or chest.

The owner of a container can add more users by placing additional signs beside the container with the heading [More Users], where lines 2-4 specify the names of the additional users. You can edit the users on previously placed signs by right clicking the sign, and using the command '/lockette <line number> <text>' to change it.

All of this can be done with doors and furnaces as well.

The Minecraft client by default will only use a maximum of 1GB of memory. It is not set up like you would think to automatically use more if needed, for some reason Notch has locked the memory usage maximum to 1GB, I'm not sure if this is a limitation of Java. This can cause problems when the memory usage reaches the 1GB maximum, particularly in Multiplayer which is loaded with bugs and memory leaks. Symptoms of this problem include crashing directly to the desktop with no error, or crashes with an out of memory error. There is a way to increase this limit, here is how:

Automatic Method(Thanks to FordGT90Concept)

You can follow this link to download an automatic exe that will setup up Minecraft to use more memory automatically.
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2401080&postcount=1349
All credit goes to FordGT90concept!


Manual Method
  1. Download Minecraft.jar from http://www.minecraft.net/download.jsp, under Linux/Other. Save it to your desktop. -The minecraft.jar that is downloaded automatically when you run the normal Windows launcher will not work.
  2. Download and install the 64-bit version of Java from http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.
  3. Create a shortcut and make the target "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xmx2G -Xms1G -cp "C:\users\<username>\desktop\Minecraft.jar" net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

This will make allocate 2GB to Minecraft. You can adjust the -Xmx2G and -Xms1G to bigger numbers if you wish. Changing them to -Xmx3G and -Xms2GB will allocate 3GB to Minecraft. Do not allocate all of your memory to Minecraft, this will cause java to freak out. I'd allocate no more than 1GB less than your total system memory to Minecraft. So if you have 4GB of RAM, only allocate a maximum of 3GB. If you've only got 2GB of RAM, stick with the default 1GB. Also, from what I understand, Xms should always be 1GB less than Xmx, but I've made them both the same with no real noticeable problems.

This is how you do it if you are a 32-bit operating system:
  1. Download Minecraft.jar from http://www.minecraft.net/download.jsp, under Linux/Other. Save it to your desktop. -The minecraft.jar that is downloaded automatically when you run the normal Windows launcher will not work.
  2. Create a shortcut and make the target "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1500M -Xms512M -cp "C:\users\<username>\desktop\Minecraft.jar" net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

This will give 1.5GB to Minecraft, which is still an improvement over the standard 1GB.

  1. Open NVIDIA Control Panel.
  2. Go to Mange 3D Setting.
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. Browse to your java installation directory, usually C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin, and select the java.exe.
  5. Change Anisotropic Filtering to a setting that your setup can handle, 8x should be pretty safe for most modern midrange cards and higher, my GTX470 handles 16x easily.
  6. Change Antialiasing - Mode to Override any application settings.
  7. Change Antialiasing - Setting to a setting that your graphics card can handle, 4x will be pretty safe for modern midrange cards, my GTX470 handles 32x with ease.
  8. Change Antialiasing - Transparancy to any setting your graphics card can handle, 2x shoud be safe for most modern midrange graphics card, my GTX470 handles 8x just fine.
  9. Press Apply.
  10. Repeat steps 3-9 for javaw.exe.

You can try setting your rendering distance to Far, then when you first join the server just stand still for a good minute or two until the entire area around you has loaded. You can press F3 and watch the graph at the bottom left of the screen. When it calms down to a pretty steady line, that is a good sign the area is done loading from the server. Setting the rendering distance to Far forces more of the map to be loaded initially instead of loading it when you are moving around.

When travelling long distances take it slow, let the map load, if you move faster than the connection can stream the data, you'll hit extreme lag.

Close any background processes you don't need running, particularly any that are CPU intensive(such as Bionic or F@H). Since the last update these seem to really effect performance in Minecraft Multiplayer. I'm not sure why. Ford and I both have experience the issue, as well as a few others I believe, even on my i7 rig which normally would have no problem running Minecraft with F@H going in the background. I have a funny feeling Notch as accidentally set one of the important threads for Minecraft to low priority, so F@H/Bionic don't give up the CPU cycles to allow Minecraft to use them.

I'm contemplating throwing together a Minecraft server for those of us at TPU, but I'd like to judge interest before putting out a little money to finish the rig. If I put it together and hosted it, would some poeple be interested in using it?
My LAN group has a minecraft server, and it is an EPIC time waster, you can blow 3 hours and not even notice.

I would be interested, and would it be a monster server or just a build server ?

Monster server for sure, but probably not PvP.

Multiplayer brings the game to a whole new level.

I currently play on another Forum server but would love to play with TPU member, so you can count me in.

Count me in. I recently bought the game after playing the free version for a while and have been looking for a good server to play on. Monsters with no PvP sounds good.

What kind of hardware does it take to make a good server? What all do you need to finish up the build? If you want to make it a community thing I'm sure some of us could donate some hardware.

Well I ordered a few parts today to give me a full rig to get a server up and running on. It isn't all that powerful, it will just be a test server to see how things go, if demand is good enough I'll upgrade to something better.

Whitelist is an absolute must, especially for TPU and its high traffic.
Yeah, I'll have to figure out a way to handle that... I don't think Minecraft has a whitelist feature by default. I'm thinking McMyAdmin might be the easiest solution, but is is only free up to 8 users on the server. I'll probably use the free version until there is some more usage of the server. If is only 10 GBP to buy the professional version, so I'll probably pony up the dough if the server gets more popular.

PM Me if you are interested in a permanent hosting solution for it if your connection sucks too much or if they restrict it or something like that.. I would gladly help locate a good provider/solution. I know of quite a few to avoid and quite a few to consider. I'm not naming names here only in PM.

However if you do plan on getting a Virtual Private Server for it to save money (if you can't afford a dedicated but still want a better host with a better connection) get one with Xen Virtualization becuase OpenVZ is not known to play nicely with java.

Good luck and I may give it a try sometime! The last server I played on had too much drama though so I won't be having that LOL.

I will also tell you that MC is very RAM intensive so I recommend at least 4GB for it. Also make sure you have a very good HD becuase I/O is pretty high as well.

I've been eyeing this game recently.
Is it playable on a sucky satellite connection?
What's the difference between a build and survival server?
I assume you need to purchase the retail version of the game to play on private servers?

I don't know a whole lot about this game as you can see. lol

Im fairly new to the game myself been playing it for about 2 weeks, So some of the info may not bee 100% correct.

you will probaly get more info of the game if you go onto youtube and type in lets play Minecraft tutorial as that's what i did and i picked it up quickly.

Survival is where you must fight to survive in the minecraft world, basically when night time falls enemy mobs start spawning and will try to make your life as hard as possible. So before night falls you want to build a shelter to survive.

Im not to sure what there mean by Build mode though, As currently the only game modes are survival and creative and creative was in minecraft classic.

If you go on the Minecraft site Kreji you can play minecraft classic for free which gives you some idea of the game, But alot has changed since the classic Version but as i said gives you some idea.

http://www.minecraft.net/

Also Depending on what settings are chosen ie when you join (online authorization) it will check to see if you bought a copy of the game. But if that was turned off you would have to use a Vpn client to play online. I found this out as my friend told me it was free and gave me a copy but it's not so i bought it For £11 it's worth it ; )

I know what to do ... I just suck at it. :D (like most every other game I play)
