The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hello. I've taken some time off of hosting since my last server was having issues with maintaining people's inventory, often causing resets. Out of anger and frustration, I ended hosting, because it was pointless. Now that updates have been out, I have been trying out new servers, and so far, there seems to be less of these issues. So, I'm attempting, one more time, to host a new server world.
The world will be a medium size, medium biome survival on hard. All are welcome to do with what you please in the server. Of course, griefers will be immediately ejected. The only thing I can't stand are people who steal and destroy. If it is your wish to partake in these things, play in a battle arena, or join a server that is a free for all pvp.
This new server will have all available updates, and when realms and Together come out, will migrate to those, eventually.
If there are enough people, the server will be open mostly all day. Mods will be selected to handle the server when I am away.
New people and veterans are welcome. This is a survival only server. No creative mode will be activated. This means you can hunt for achievements on this server, if you wish. You may build anything, anywhere, so long as it obeys server rules, which will be posted, and no property may be built on top of, or in very close proximity to other players.
Elytra wings and the like will be given to those who request it. I will have to reset The End periodically to accompany this, and this may be what was causing inventory resets in the first place. I have no idea. But tests will have to be conducted.
Unless specifically requested, the game will remain on Hard.
You may not steal, enter, or build next to or on another person's property.
You may build anything, and go anywhere, so long as not to conflict with the first rule.
You may claim land, from which no one can build property on, but it must be within reason. No claiming an entire biome, or a whole map, or an unreasonable large portion of land close to spawn point. Most cave networks are connected, so this cannot apply. Plus, there would be no way for you to maintain holding of the land (ie. security).
Spawn point may not be built upon, or in close proximity to, to prevent new players from accidentally starting on your land.
In the future, if we get many players, this will also attract griefers. In the past, I have set up a spawn prison where no new players may exit until they were approved in our group chat by a modder. I also turned "Trust Players" off to new players, after a substantial amount of work had been built on the previous server, to prevent anyone from coming in, stealing, raiding, killing, or destroying, and then exiting, for sadistic pleasure.
Upon request, TNT and flame spread may be turned off, to keep from damages applying from griefers, or accidents.
Report any griefer to the active mod or Host.
And keep up with communications either through signs, or joining a chat group.
Any new rules may be applied, or taken away, based on player feedback and vote.
Since Nintendo hates social networking, measures to join a group chat, or voice call through Skype, Discord, or other program will be implemented.
And of course, we want everyone to have fun, new or veteran to the game.
I will post my friend code, once there is active interest in this topic. Please, pm me your friend code, if you wish to partake on this server. And thanks, in advance.
