Planning to Start Again?
« on: April 13, 2012, 02:47:53 AM »
The idea of starting up again has been tossed around a bit. With that, I was hoping we could do some planning to work out what we want in terms of mods we want, how many are interested, and how it would be hosted.

First things first, survival or creative?

If survival, what level of difficulty?

What mods would you like to see, if any?

If you were to play would you be able to pitch in towards the operating costs?

I've done some browsing around looking for various hosts and came across creeperhost.net

They have a package with 1024MB RAM, 30GB disk space, and unlimited bandwidth for ~$15/month. From what I've seen they are both reliable and go above and beyond with customer service. They also give you the ability to install various mods yourself with some minimal support to quickly add some of them.

A bit later in the month I'd be willing to try them out for a month to see how we like it and how well it works for our needs. As for mods I'd probably install RedPower (it adds a few new things to mine, new blocks, some machines, and improves upon redstone.), chop tree to let me chop down trees in one fell swoop, RailCraft for improved rail things, and Industrial Craft.

To see how well this works I'm going to try and set up a MP server on a computer at home to see how well it works out.

I wouldn't mind running a minecraft server on this (fairly powerful) machine I recently built for a few weeks.

I'd be willing to chip in and see how Creeperhost is for a while.

If we're to do this then we're also going to need some mods more on the administrative side of things to help prevent griefing. Namely something to have groups set up so that unknown people can't come in and cause trouble and something to set up a jail.

I believe before we decided that only white-listed people should be able to place or remove blocks, and that people would need a sponsor to be added to the white-list who would be liable if they went psychotic or something like that.

I'd dust off minecraft to play it again for a little while.
Today's date is: Today is Jocidi, 5 Cielidor AR 5 - Day 1770 of the Glorious Revolution.

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

We probably should stop discussing this perpetually if we're serious and decide on something.

I've gone ahead and ordered the server. It is currently in the setup phase.

For now I'll be leaving it as vanilla minecraft until addons are updated for 1.2.5.

More details will be posted when I have them.
