Alright, I've got a crapton of friends IRL that play Minecraft, so I've been talking to them about this whole thing.
Until it gets big enough, unfortunately, we won't be running this 24/7. Instead, It'll be down for about six hours a day. 6:00am - 12:00am
Temporary, of course. Until I move out and get an awesome PC I can run for, like, ever. Unless, of course, I can find a trustworthy person here to run things.
The whole password thing sounds very creative. :biggrin.gif: I like it. What do you guys think?
And I'm really really really liking the local area chat. Would it also be possible to set a fixed area where you can only hear the chat in that area? For example, a castle. :L Can't hear anything outside the borders. Ventrilo would be nice, as well.
I'm still not sure what the term vanilla means. :U
First off, Vanilla is the term used to describe a server not using Mods.
I am more inclined to use Vent or an IRC channel. Minecraft chat sucks.
When you get the IP, post it and let us join your whitelist.
Got your mail, Prongs. :biggrin.gif: I'll keep in touch.
Yeah, I'd rather every man be for himself. Or whatever kingdom he's joined, really.
What the plan is is to have two factions (unnamed at the moment), and early players that have been appointed kingdoms get to choose which side to play for. Each being on it's own continent.
Earlier, I stated that Kingdoms would be about a days length apart. That is true. Even if they're on the same continent. However, the length between each faction's continent, would be about five days apart from each other.
Something else I've considered is not joining either faction and instead being a nomad in the space between and around the dueling factions.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I would love to help; I love roleplay, creative building, and PVP. I also think that there should be no mods, just to preserve the feeling of MC. I also have an Idea for a faction/clan for the server. Would love to get started asap!
Sorry to double post but here is a List of Mods, my current server run and its a good RP server. THese do not directly interfer with the game but make it more fun.
-hey.0's admin mod
Just making sure, you do mean in game day correct? Still, just one day is still fairly close unless thats just to the border villages, forests, strip mines, ect.
Just going to throw this out there... I would love to see a man made mountain range in MC, snow capped and with a Dwarrowdelf type city in it. That would be impressive... and I think it would also count as a castle? Hah! Spy's would HATE that with my password idea xD
I'll be sure to give them a look, Prongs. Thank you, kindly.
Yeah, game days, Dala. Feel free to make your settlement farther away if you'd like. And if that's what you'd like for a base, go for it. :biggrin.gif: It's every man for himself, so good luck! That is, until you gain members in your settlement.
Oh, wow. Many many messages in my inbox about this. Well, I'm glad lots of people are interested! I'm pretty excited myself. :biggrin.gif:
Anyone that posted in this thread before this message will be appointed a plot of land. You could say you're my alpha members.
Tomorrow's Thanksgiving so I'm obviously not going to have this up tomorrow. But the day after, I'll be at my friend's house setting up the whole thing. :biggrin.gif: I hope you're all as excited as I am.
I'll also be sure to think of Faction names within...a few hours actually. That way you'll all be able to decide which Faction you'll be siding with.
I'll work on an official thread, too. Thanks for the support, everyone!
Oh, yeah! Seems that this server's gonna be an RP Server, so woohoo!
Just...don't let your Settlement names sound so...childish. For example "The Uber Awesome Land of Demons and Herobrine and and and and...AND IMA PWN U", "N00B SLAYRZ", or "DEMON CAT PEOPLE YEAH".
Go for something more pleasing to read. Run it by me or others before you decide, please.
Thank you. :biggrin.gif:
This sparks to me. If the lag isn't bad Id have to give it a go. Just as long as there are some type of roads (sounds like a good job) and a way to put your spawn in the town of your choice so no one can spawn in an enemy area if they choose to join some far off land. Oh, and maybe some way of branding players to show who they work for (a skin for each area or maybe an armband you can put on your skin).
EDIT: Decided Redstone will be currency. Think of one redstone being a quarter. So four redstone powders will be a dollar. A stack would be 16 bucks. :biggrin.gif: Working on prices for things right now.
Having a standard currency seems a bit restricting, a barter system would be better, imo.
Woo! You guys are going to be in. :biggrin.gif: And that's a good idea, Chewy. Should we all wear a certain skin when in this server? Or perhaps just two insignias that overlay whatever skin the user is wearing at the moment. Just a crest or something on the back or arms signifying what Faction they represent.
I really wish we had some kind of trade window, Falcon, It'd make things much easier, but I'll make sure to consider it. I just really want this to be somewhat of a challenge with the strict currency and fixed abundancy.
Remember folks, don't plan on coming here and making little teeny dinky castles. Plan out some blueprints. Put up many defenses. Make theses things MASSIVE.
Oh, for the moment, there will only be two factions. Like I said earlier, each faction is to it's own continent. And then there's the users who don't choose either and just live among nature and whatnot. :L Working on a bit of story right now. I'll get it down here later.
Gaerix (So you'd be a Gaerixian. :U)
Valtia (There you'd be Valtian. ::cool.gif:
Read the thread, bro. :U It'll be up in two days.
Alrighty, this guy's the last one with a reserved plot of land to construct a settlement.
We could add a few more every month. I just don't want every single user to have a massive base. Maybe I'll make an exception, later on, and add a few more. :u
Well, I'm going to write a bit of story for this, write some rules, then go to bed. I'll probably be on tomorrow after Turkey Day Dinner. :biggrin.gif: Feel free to continue discussion and stuff here, choose your faction, etc. It'd be nice to come back to alot of responses and suggestions. Goodnight!
