You'll get better, if Minecraftchick can get it I'm sure you can.
Okay, I figured out how to stay alive, but I'm missing out on why this game is so popular.
It seems really pretty repetitious and boring. :/
It's pretty fun once you get into it and start exploring and finding things.
You have to be creative. Maybe you are too old to understand.
Also, I know you like programming, so you might have a blast with Redstone circuits. You can make computers in the game. It is ridiculous, but possible. Apparently they also have music tones now so you can play songs!
So where's the TPU minecraft server? I'll not give up on it yet.
The parts I needed arrived yesterday afternoon, depending on how busy work is this week I might not have time to put it together until the weekend. But we'll see, I might get it for basic testing earlier.
No hurry Newt, I was just wondering.
I've just played offline, so it would be interesting to see giant TPU logos made of blocks (or whatever).
I'd play on it but beware, Minecraft server is extremely buggy/inefficient/high upload requirements.
That is why it is still in beta. Nothing has been finalized. Also, Notch is incredibly lazy. He might update the client but forget to update the server dependencies along with it, so the server dependencies don't update.
One bug that seems to happen alot in multiplayer is where Block Re-appear as soon as you have minned them. I think notch has done a temporary fix on that but to me that hasn't done much.
Cant wait for the server though ; )
That might not always be a glitch though, there is a spawn point protection in place that prevents anyone that isn't an op from changing anything within a certain distance of the spawn point. Some servers have used this protection system to protect other areas as well.
Thanks, I read on the net that you cant remove blocks near the spawn area, But the new world i created i have built near the spawn area, well not right next to it maybe about 200 blocks away atleast, Where as my friend has built right next to it Yet he can mine blocks there and i cant ?
Not sure if that is a bug or not ?
But it done it in our first world we built away from it and Every Tree in the game caught on fire becuase a pig went into Lava....lol and Blew up ; ) when we tried to cut down the trees to get rid of the fire it came back....lol
I dont suppose you would no how to change the spawn area or Allow you to build near it ?
You have to be an op to build/mine near the spawn area. I believe there is also a setting in the config file that you can add to increase or decrease the protection size.
Ah, Cheers. I should be a Op along with my friend Think i will have to Check my Config file again then as something is not right.
Thanks for Info ; )
I built a 4bit adding machine. Certainly not that impressive, but very complex. Took about 5 hours to complete.
When the server comes up, I'm going to takeover underground with redstone contraptions.
Heh, the first thing I usually do is hit bedrock then make a stairwell from the bottom up. They usually end up with 15 basement levels and at least 3 above ground levels.
Left it sitting on the bench installing Win7 overnight.
You can set your own spawn point..
/sethome and /home again! to bring you back.
I would love to be on the TPU MC server. I am on a small one now and you can view my latest MC video by going to my channel. It's on my sig. xD Now let's see how many of you will view it. lol
The server will be up tomorrow, I'm doing final stability tesing on it tonight. There is a whitelist, so PM me if you want to be added to the user list. I'll PM you the address to join and add you to the whitelist. Include your Minecraft username in your PM as well if it is different than your TPU username.
I need to come up with some basic rules for the server as well that I'll add to the first post. So give me some ideas there.
Should we have a minimum post count or something before someone can join? I'm thinking must be a TPU member for 30 days and have a minimum of 30 posts before they can play on the server? What does everyone think?
Post count seems a good idea, Oh and no item Editors (Not sure if you can do that on multiplayer anyway) but if you can that would be a good one to add to the rules.
Also what is the whitelist ?
I don't believe you can use item editors in the multiplayer since the server suposidly handles the inventory.
And the whitelist is the list of players that are allowed on the server. If anyone not on the list tries to join the server they won't be able to.
Ah, Ok ; 0 Wasn't Sure pretty new to the game.
Could i be added to the whitelist then please ?
Mc name is virusj92
Maybe you can help me out sometime. I am trying to start my own server but am having complications.
Btw, add me. Same name as in MC.
How about just whitelisting the people you know as good TPU members?
Separate names with a comma.
