Well, I really just tried to come up with a name, and not necessarily one that reflects the server nature.
But since we appear to have some picky people here...
Are you happy now? Does the name meet your standards?
The VanillaCraft server is a vanilla Minecraft survival server, similar in format to that of the MindCrack and HermitCraft servers, where players can enjoy a friendly multiplayer survival environment in a mod/plugin-free world. Everyone enjoys vanilla Minecraft multiplayer, but it is impossible to make such a server public whilst still ensuring a safe and friendly environment. Because of this, the server will be private, and will have a minimum of 15 players chosen to join and a maximum of 30. Selection process will be very tough, as we need to ensure that we do not allow players onto the server who will degrade the integrity of the fair and friendly environment.
If you wish to be accepted onto the server whitelist, please go down to the bottom of the post for the application.
If you are accepted onto the server, you will, within a private message, receive the IP address you can use to join the server, and should already be on the whitelist, and should be able to join immediately. Be aware that the server is being hosted on a private home network, and connection may be slow and buggy at times. This will often be the case until funds are acquired to host the server on a more high-end network.
(My download is 70Mb/s, but my upload is for some reason maxed at 5Mb/s? My ISP is dumb...)
And no, the server will not be a Realm server.
The host and OP of the server, known in-game as "Rektroth," reserves the right to blacklist (remove from the whitelist) any person who behaves in a manner deemed "unacceptable" by himself or the fellow server members. This is to protect the social integrity of the server and ensure a fair and friendly environment.
Generally Viewed as Unacceptable Behavior:
- Bullying, or offensive language directed at a specific player
We understand that sometimes players will have their disputes, but please try to keep the server chat civil, and please don't start any sort of "battles" that will start destroying parts of the world or each others' property.
Stealing another player's property, or causing any kind of damage to another player's property, will not be tolerated. Intentionally killing a fellow player, unless they expressly challenged you to a fight or accepted your challenge of a fight, will not be tolerated either. It is recommended that all "challenges" be offered and accepted via the server chat as to ensure that there is proof in the server log files that both parties consented.
- Any sort of "hack" or DoS/DDoS
Obviously, DoS and DDoS's are not acceptable at all as they slow down other players' connections and often cause servers to crash. Hacking the player client is also not acceptable. These often include "x-ray hacks", "fly hacks", etc. These are difficult to detect, but if they are discovered, will not be tolerated. And finally, any attempts to hack the server itself will not be tolerated.
- Publicly spreading the server IP
This is not a huge concern since the server has a whitelist, but we do still need to ensure that the server does not come under attack from outside hackers.
If any player is thought to be guilty of carrying out, performing, or participating in any act that is deemed "unacceptable behavior," an investigation will begin. Any player found guilty will be blacklisted from the server without discussion or debate.
Please be aware that all server chat will be monitored regularly to ensure integrity and all server logs will be archived for at least 6 months. No rules will be enforced regarding what you can and can not say in the chat, but the chat will be used as evidence if an investigation starts regarding unacceptable behavior.
SORRY, NOT SORRY
Unfortunately, in order to ensure the safety and integrity of the server, if we suffer from a hack or DoS/DDoS, the server IP will be changed to avoid future tampering.
Also, due to the vanilla aspect of the server, if you are the victim of a griefing/killing, no form of compensation will be provided. It is recommended that extreme caution be taken in making sure that you are not the victim of such behavior.
"Pranks" are acceptable, but only in situations deemed appropriate by the fellow members. Generally, an event is accepted as a "prank" and not "unacceptable behavior" when the work done does not cause harm to another player, does not rob the player of any items, and does no damage to the player's property. For example, burying a player's house in dirt or hiding a player's items somewhere else in the world and leaving behind clues are generally acceptable behavior. Blowing up a player's house or hiding their items somewhere they can not be easily re-obtained are not acceptable behavior.
COMMUNITY & ENVIRONMENT
Most contact between players on the server will either be in the server chat or on Skype, either in the server's public Skype chat room or privately between players. Players on the server may also have private chats among themselves via other means, but for all chat directed at the entirety of the server's members, the public Skype chat is recommended. Skype will also be used frequently for voice chats during game play.
Also know that, by accepting an invitation to join the server, you are also accepting to be part of the entire community. We will likely hold frequent events either on the server, or on separate servers. These could be some sort of events happening on the server itself regarding special occasions, UHC games or other mini-games, or getting together on other mini-game servers for fun. You are not required to participate in any community activity, however being an active member is highly encouraged. Server members are also aloud to setup other modded survival servers of their own, such as FTB, for everyone to join. However, if you do setup one of these, please allow everyone on the main server to be included in the modded server's whitelist.
The server will always be up-to-date with the latest release version of Minecraft. We would love to try out new snapshot features with all of you, but snapshots are often unstable and could result in more frequent server crashes, connection problems, or world corruption. To be safe, we will not be using weekly snapshots or pre-releases. The server will also receive a complete reset every so often. The frequency of resets is not static and will depend on how interested the current players are in starting over or continuing to use the current world. When a world reset does occur, the final state of the world will be available for public download.
Players who choose to resign from the server will remain whitelisted and will be what we call a "VIP." They will still be informed if the server IP happens to change, however will not be asked to participate in community events. "VIPs" still have to adhere to "unacceptable behavior" policies, however we ask that, since VIPs are no longer officially members of the server, that they not tamper with the world map too much.
Members of the server are aloud, and highly encouraged, to record and upload Let's Plays of their projects and experiences on the server to YouTube and broadcast live streams on Twitch.
Official members: 2
THE SERVER WILL BE OPENED ONCE WE HAVE 15 ACCEPTED APPLICATIONS
APPLICATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE ACCEPTED UNTIL THE OP SEES FIT
AGAIN, A MAXIMUM OF 30 WILL BE ACCEPTED, HOWEVER IT IS NOT GUARANTEED THIS IS THE NUMBER WE WILL TAKE RIGHT NOW
It is requested that applicants be at least 18 years of age.
This is not required, but adults will be preferred due to the mature environment of the server.
A minimum age of 13 will be required, however those under 18 will have their applications even more thoroughly examined.
The only "requirement" is that you be proficient in English since this is an American-hosted server.
Why you want to join:
What you will bring to the environment:
A (funny) joke: (optional, but tells us more about your sense of humor)
Just write your application as a PM to me.
A Skype call will likely be requested to confirm your acceptance.
I'm working on making a resource pack. In the pack, I'm changing some of the block models. The new models that I'm making are working, however every time I make a change to one of the models, I have to completely restart the game. I used to just press F3+T and that would reload the resource pack and update the models, but now pressing F3+T seems to just reset all the models to the default ones. Is this a change made to the game on purpose, a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah, the demands your wanting could take a while.
Guess that shows how much Mojang cares about the people that helped their game become succesful in the first place. Also, our wanting could take a while what?
Quote from marqss
Oh, and please read the main post first, not just the title. This topic is not about seeds in themselves, it's about Minecraft world generation.
Quote from Clone200
your demands are stupid.
Quote from marqss
You know what i think of people that just state their opinions with no arguments behind them? Either they aren't smart enough to bring one up, or they don't even know why exactly they support that particular idea and not the other one, at the same time thinkink that they have to have a clear opinion on everything, because indecisive people are treated like dumbasses in their minds.
Either way, when you take part in a discussion on any topic, you don't need to have a clear point of view, but when you do, some arguments would make your opinion seem more relevant.
Therefore, your words mean nothing to me unless you add some arguments...

What makes them stupid?
Something is not stupid by default. There has to be a reason for it to be stupid.
Quote from Glasscreeper
No argument means your post is just conjecture. Got proof they are stupid? Show it.
1. More interesting terrain; More breathtaking and jaw dropping land masses to appear more often then they currently do
2. We want extreme mountains and overhangs to have the possibility to neatly generate randomly in all biomes. We want neat, uniform, and NICE land masses to appear RANDOMLY in all biomes equally. (obviously excluding plains and swamps as well, of course)
3. The majority of cave systems and Mineshafts actually come to an end eventually, and appear less often. Seemingly endless caves should be a nice find.
4. We do not want chewed up and spit out eyesore terrain spammed all over the place - we want it to appear randomly and spaced apart to please players who like the wild terrain generations and the ones who like the flat lands for building.
5. We do not want the Terrain Generator from 1.7
As soon as Mojang can get around to it!

And you, of course, bring no arguments.

PS : You can put symbols in an MC name? I didn't know that!
Never mind, it won't paste.

More problems: For a while now I've been seeing items getting stuck in blocks, where I cannot pick them up unless I destroy whatever is around them. I'm not sure if it's still going on, but mobs and villagers are REALLY getting stuck OFTEN and it's actually dangerous. This evening I right clicked to trade with a villager and he and the villager standing next to him suddenly dropped into the blocks below them and for some reason it showed up as me HITTING the villager, causing faction loss (it looked like, because I saw some weird yellow/red symbols over its head) and this happened twice tonight!!
