Minecraft Again
« on: April 29, 2015, 12:12:05 PM »
Would anyone be interested in starting up a Minecraft server again? Part of me would love to make my own centipede factory.

There are some problems, though:

I don't know about anyone else but I haven't played minecraft in like three years and I don't get all this new crap they added. Also it seems like everyone that plays it now are all 8 years old.

Is minecraft more expensive now for new players? I bought it years ago but I don't know how much it is for beginners.

Related to the above, is it possible to run a server on an older version of minecraft without all this extra crap we don't need?

Honestly, I'm on the fence.  I would both love to finally have a reason to play Minecraft again, but we must be honest; it's dying as we speak.  Overall, it's worth a shot.

Is it really dying? I don't know much about it; I haven't played it in a few years.

I'm with Myroria in that I am old and afraid of change. I would be tempted to play an old version of Minecraft.

And Myroria, you know you don't need Minecraft to make a cent-i-pede factory...

According to This helpful, red-arrowed tutorial, playing on old versions is indeed possible, and you can still play online so long as everyone uses the same version. I'll try this firsthand with my Minecraft install tonight and get back to you guys!

Would it be possible to do a Tekkit server with aforementioned centipedes and factories?

I'm not sure if we could do it simultaneously with an outdated server. We could hold a vote on what people would want more, unmodified old or newly updated.

So I was able to get Minecraft running using the Beta 1.7.3 version, which is what we were using in July 2011. A server from this website that could hold 20 people would cost $7.49 per month. I'd be willing to get one if there's enough interest in this.

Truthfully, looking at the updated block list it looks like a lot of new ones that would be very useful aesthetically have been added. I would not be against having an up to date version. The core gameplay far as I know is largely unchanged.

The core gameplay between 1.7.3b and the current version is massively different. The beta version was much more sandbox, and the up to date version, at least to me, seems really adventure based.

The stranger's fate, the curses' bane.
Many touchstones try the stranger
Many fall, but one remains.

Should we hold a vote?

What if we made the server Creative Mode?  That would be cool!
