Alrighty kiddos new info. Kinda old info first, Runecraft is now working and installed on the server, so have fun with that.
As of about 5 minutes ago, monsters and animals are activated (So I'ma use lots of monster smilies ) . I'm currently on a campus computer so I can't tell if the server's lagging because of them ('Cause these computers blow and **** moves real slow no matter what) but they'll be on for the remainder of the day. If the server is blowing up or lagging so bad you can't run away from the evil creepers , then toss me an e-mail or IM me on skype or yell at me in game or whatever.
However if there are any problems I'll most likely be removing them and health tonight, but if they work properly, and smoothly, then we'll be keeping mobs :smile.gif: (Pending Mintys review) So lets hope they work, and that Minty doesn't suck.
Not sure if I mentioned it, and I'm too lazy to reread this junk, but I put health regen on. 'Course there are piggies now too so you can make food :3 and I guess you could always make bread too....but bacon's way ****in' better than wonder bread ya know? Anyways I guess that's it for the time, soooo be careful and look out for zombies when you're diggin! And watch out for cliffs now that HP's on :smile.gif:
PS I just did a quick tiny little test and it seems to be working alright. The health regen is making fighting mobs a wee bit toooo easy so if everything goes well I might take that off since you can make food now. Also creepers don't blow up I believe, because of a mod, since I guess Minty doesn't want them griefing everything to hell.
Ok so it looks like our dear Minty has got lots of finals this week, so expect to see even less of him and his lovely Rorschach skin. So for the next week or so you guys will be stuck with just me. Maybe I'll promote someone to be a temp mod, 'cause this is insane. Anyways, I'll start bumping this post like mad, and we should get some new blood, since we haven't had many newbies in a few days. Also note that we do temporarily have two servers. 188.8.131.52:25565 is our SURVIVAL mode one. It has mobs and health and pretty much just like single player, with a bare few mods. Like /home and /spawn are still on, and I think that's actually it as far as it goes. Maybe chestprotect is still on too? Not sure, I'll have a look when I get back home. The edgeofinsanity.jestservers.com server is our normal run of the mill build server, with no mobs or health on, just minin' and buildin'. I'll be spending most of my time on the SURVIVAL server, since it's realllllyyyy fun, but if anyone needs me to rank someone up, or help out with anything on the other server, just send me an e-mail ([email protected]) or hit me up on Skype, orrrr just hop on the Survival server and yell at me heh. Hmmm, think that's it folks. Oh maybe I'll give you guys a run down of what people have built so far on the newish survival map :smile.gif: It's reallllyyyy cool! If you haven't hopped on, I suggest doing so. The only problem is the damn creepers >< They're everywhere! But we built a nice fence to hopefully keep them at bay! :tongue.gif: Aight have fun mining and crafting kiddos.
As dan mentioned, we have the Survival server up right now. This server is a test in which everyones thrown into the fray of monsters and health with nothin.
So far, everything is running smoothley. It is arguable that further use of a big map and more people with all the mobs on could cause considerable lag, so I am hesitant to switch our server over.
Most likely Dan and I will put it to a vote to see who wants to switch the server from Build to Survival.
For now, the second server is ours til the end of the month. So happy bloody creeper filled xmas! :tongue.gif:
The current server has been switched to even better hardware with an updated java platform, so it should start to run more smoothley.
Also: I added a few new mods:
Go check em out!
