SEVER INFO: ABOUT
This is Exfra. A vanilla server I host on my own computer.
The server can be whatever you want it to be. You want to RP? sure, make a town or whatever, maybe get some other people online to help and start RPing.
Want to mine and just do your own thing? Go ahead.
Do you have no more trees or resorces? Then go off to another isle for a while.
This server is also a testing grounds for my serversided scripts im making. Mind you there arnt any of my own scripts in it yet, but im working on it.
I make the server fully open, and private, depending on if I feel like everyone can handle it themselves.
I take care of griefers myself and I take it seriously. If I think someone is doing something, I'll watch them for a while until they do then ban them.
If there are no admins on, I make the server private to only the people who know the IP and port already. To lessen the chance of random Griefers.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.60GHZ
Ran on WinXP
3MB/s Upload and 8MB/s Download.
Should be up 24/7. I have a 100GB up/down limit though per month. So I'll have to check how much hosting hogs.
A admin (Me) should ALMOST always be on to watch over things, just to make sure things stay peaceful.
Running hey0 and superllamas serverside packages.
The current 'world' is snow themed.
15 player at a time limit.
Pretty much a vanilla game. Its like single player, only with more people. Unobtainable items can be gotten though a fair trade.
I also backup worlds very very often.
There will also be random quizzes where you can win things.
It's not much, but it's better then most normal peoples computers. There will be a lag spike once every hour or two, but the spike will only last for about 10 seconds. (This is just because my PC likes to randomly spike now and then.)
That aside there shouldn't be any lag.
SOMETIMES, it'll lag a bit because I sometimes play and host on the same PC, but it does almost nothing. (I dont see anyone else that plays complain of lag usually, except for said spike)
HOW TO APPLY
PM or email me at [email protected] to apply for being able to always come in, private or not.
Doesn't have to be anything fancy. I don't talk much myself, so I can accept you if you have low posts or don't say much.
I want to keep this server semi-private in sake of keeping track of everyone coming and going.
I should reply with the server IP and port within about 12 hoursish.
If not, email [email protected] instead. Its a friends email who can do the work for me.
To apply for admin or mod, all you really need to do is get to know me. If I think your trustworthy enough I'll give it to you.
RULES&BANS: GENERAL RULES
Do NOT destroy other peoples work. If I see you do it you will be kicked/banned without warning.
Don't build around others work unless they say you can.
You CAN use the duplication glitch as you wish. Enjoy it while you can...until its patched.
The reason for the above rule is because I want people to play the game as they want it. Given the vanilla flavor.
If people want to dupe items in single player, knock yourself out, its frowned upon, but go ahead. So let it be the same here.
If you need a item that you cant get due to glitches in the SMP, ask a admin for it. (Feathers, gunpowder, etc)
Id like to explain the above rule in more detail:
If you need a item, that you cant get otherwise, you can get it by asking a admin. BUT you need to trade for it.
Example, to get your iron ore turned into iron, if you want 4 iron, you need to give up 4 iron ores. Some raw items can't be got at all like the feathers and gunpowder, these can be given away freely.
If there is no admin around, and someone ruins your stuff, PM me or another admin with a snapshot as proof.
If you do not appear in the server for two months without any warnings, I will remove you from the player list and delete your stuff in case others wish to use your land. (To prevent this, warn ME if your about to leave for a extended period of time. Or have a friend tell me, if your grounded or something lol..)
If you go AFK for more then two hours, I will kick you. Sorry about this, but id rather save whatever bandwith I can.
If you get banned because 'your brother' or 'your friend' went on your account and ruined someones stuff, don't complain about it, either get a dynamic IP, or stop letting your friends on your account >.>
If you are going to argue, about anything, or cyber or whatever it is that could disturb the general public of the game, please PLEASE take it in PMs.. (via /Tell PLAYERNAME MESSAGE GOES HERE)
Oh, and say "ByFF4BHM" in your application to join just so I know you read the rules XP I will ignore your application otherwise.
Other then that I don't really care what ya do.
All of the General Rules Apply.
Yes, there are admin rules. I come from a game that has alot of admin abuse, so I watch even the admins.
If your going to ban someone, go ahead, but you better PM/Email me with a reason AND proof of it within 12 hours of the ban. Else I will just unban the person.
Do not use your powers to benefit yourself, such as give yourself items you can get by working. (Look at general rules)
The ONLY benefit you get from being a admin/mod is being able to bring the banhammer down. That is all.
You can change the day to night, or the night to day as you please. However, is the majority (more then one person) wants you to leave it alone or change it back, then do as they wish.
Oh, and dont give other people admin/OP without me knowing before you do so and my acceptance.
Appealing a Ban
If you believe you where wrongly banned, please PM or email ME (only me) why you think you where wrongly banned. Also list the person who banned you.
Its not necessary, but proper English would help as well.
It is usually easy to appeal a ban.
Mind you this list isnt ALL the players, its just the people who have access to the server when its private. It's alot more full when its open.
Your'll notice I have almost no posts. This is because im new to minecraftforum. But don't get me wrong, I believe im a pretty good admin. I come from a game where you have to be or yourll get alot of A-holes screwing things up. (Starsiege Tribes)
I usually don't talk much, and I am mostly keep to myself.
Although I keep to myself, I still enjoy company, thats why I am hosting this.
We might also have a Ventrilo server soon. Maybe.
Also, I may change this post (including rules, etc) whenever I feel it is necessary.
Remember, I'm new to hosting a minecraft server, so be nice if im doing something wrong XP
ALSO, if you like the server, say so in a comment! letting people know the server is a great place is a good way to get new people in.
If you want the server to be public, wait a bit! Its usually only private if its full (Which its not right now) or im not on.
If you already know the port/IP, you can share it. Its private but you can invite people, no problem. If someone you dont know asks you for it though, dont give it. YOU can invite them. not them nag you for it.
Bugs and Fixes:
Not being able to pick up items:
This happens when you find yourself playing alot without logging out. Or if you use the dupe glitch.
There are many odd ways to fix this, the main one is making a clear slot in your Active Inventory. Then switching to that before you pick up your item.
Another is, lets say what you want to pick up is ground. Assuming you have ground in your inventory, switch to that then try to pick it up.
You can fix it yourself by signing out then back in.
