Jul 14, 2011Backdraft47 posted a message on The Wheel of Ages [MCMMO][Factions][25-50 Slots] Looking for suggestions, Moderators, Staff in general.Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For ServerQuote from Jargon
I am thinking that separate quadrants could be enabled, where a new player would randomly be assigned to a spawn point. I am not sure if this is possible, but it would be an interesting way for new players to be introduced into the server, and be given a chance to mine untouched areas and get some decent equipment before being introduced into the main area. This is just a quick suggestion. I hope to see a lot come from this server, as my old server that I frequented seems to have been closed down. I have extensive experience with minecraft, and I hope to help out in the development of this server.
That actually sounds like a fantastic idea! Ill look for a plugin that could possibly allow multiple spawn points for new players.

Jul 14, 2011Just did a fresh reinstall of java just to make sure. Nothing.Posted in: Legacy Support
Actually, with some fooling around after reinstalling (things like clearing my web cache) it is now working perfectly. Odd, but ok. Thanks for the help anyways!

Check your hosts file. I am guessing that the launcher is trying to connect to minecraft.net but an entry in the hosts file is preventing this. The hosts file can be found here:
Just edit it with notepad. Remove any entry for minecraft.net
I checked, but nope. No entry

Exactly what is taking along time to load? The launcher? Loading a world?
The launcher. For example, I click open on the exe, I see the process running in my task manager, but no minecraft.
Jul 13, 2011Hello,Posted in: Legacy Support
Recently I have just gotten back into minecraft. Before I had no problems opening and running minecraft. However, now, months later, it takes ages for minecraft to open (10 minutes, maybe more). Yesterday I somehow managed to have it open immediately, and I have no problem running the game itself. Does anyone know a solution to this? It is incredibly frustrating since I used to have 0 problems.
Jul 13, 2011Just so everyone knows, I have ordered a small 10 player server to experiment/collaborate/do whatever in while the main server is waiting to be brought up. I wont be posting the IP, but I will give it to accepted mods and maybe interested players. Ill update you once its up!Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For Server
Jul 13, 2011Very interesting dafinalboss! I will send you a PM and maybe we could develop this idea a little more.Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For Server
Jul 13, 2011Hello!Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For Server
After work today I will be back here some more and hopefully get the ball rolling a little bit. See you in a while!

Here's something I put up: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/472132-server-idea-we-need-to-make-this-i-will-help/
I think something like this (Tron) or steampunk or something less run of the mill will create an environment players will stick with and enjoy playing.
My ideal core game elements:
Survival with town building,
no pvp in most areas or rp only pvp.
I like rp, but i think light rp is a better alternative.
Interesting concept. I'd like to see this idea develop a little more
I have the same ideals though, but maybe with more pvp. Maybe faction based town building. Its been a while since ive looked at plugins, but towny + factions could create an ideal situation. However, I dont know how factions work, so ill have to look more into that.
Regardless, this will not be a creative server.
Jul 13, 2011Just a note, I will review all applications and personally reply with a PM, not here. Also, I may not reply to every suggestion, but I WILL read all of them!Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For Server

An idea for what to make the server about would be a nice little spawn area, not too big and hax-looking (it draws some people away) and then outside of the spawn area would be pvp, factions, and raiding. Factions would allow people to get into groups. Walls around the spawn would be a no-no, I hate that lol. All the pvp/raiding servers that I go to either have chest protection plugins (why would you put that on a raiding server?) or huge cities at spawn that are protected... so yeah, consider this idea, and remember, factions plugin is awesome!
BTW, I may apply to be a Moderator :biggrin.gif:
Thanks for the idea!
However, what I meant is an actual theme. Its one thing to say 'This server has factions and raiding!', and another to give it a theme, if you can understand what I am trying to say. People want a 'purpose', not just factions.
And while I agree this kind of server is fun, it wouldnt get very big in my opinion. People stick to servers where at least some of their work will be preserved and have they have at least some security. I want a server that people will come back to. BUT, if you would like to work this idea into something that is more developed, please share!
Jul 13, 2011*There is now a small test server up for those who would like to discuss ideas and just play minecraft. PM me if you would like to join.*Posted in: Starting Up / Looking For Server
Welcome to The Wheel of Ages! We are looking for staff and ideas at the moment. I hope to collect these two things rather quickly so I can get the main server started up! We have a few things that we agreed upon, and you will see those plugins in the title. I put a broad range for the slots since I want to see how much interest there is before purchasing so I dont get a top of the line server if there isnt going to be a whole lot of people from the start. We are considering much more, so read below and let me know what you think of them!
So, basically this is what im looking to do:
Collect ideas on what the overall 'theme' should be.
Collect applications for Moderator positions.
Acquire a web designer who can develop a website for the server (Which of course I will pay for the domain and hosting). This is very important!
'Tech Support'. Like I said, it has been a while, and ill need some help getting back on my feet with the latest developments. For example, is bukkit still relevant? Things like that.
Server Host recommendations would be MUCH appreciated! I want to get the best host possible, and ive spent some time doing my research, but hearing it from users is much preferred!
Also, I will not be posting a generic application. This makes it too easy and this way reveals much more about the applicants character. However, I am looking for things such as: Experience, Age, playing minecraft since ?, IGN, and even location. You may include any information you find significant. It would also be great if I could get everyone to create an account (maybe steam, msn, something we can decide on) on whatever service so we can have staff discussions in a group.
Me and Dosking spent some time collecting ideas, and I made a list of points, so here they are:
Application For civilizations
What we are looking to do is essentially have advanced tech from plugins, but that can only be accomplished with high quality materials. This would allow advanced factions to distinguish themselves above new ones, and truly develop instead of having the same old stuff. Thus, it is like factions are progressing through the 'Wheel'.We want to have an application process for different factions or 'civilizations' so that way there will always be the potential for a new element to be added.
So let me know what you guys think, and throw whatever ideas you have out there!
