    You'll need a better graphics card if you want to run Minecraft at anything more than 1080p. 1440p would probably need something more like a GTX 1660 super. 4k would be closer to an RTX 2070 or RTX 2070 super.

    posted a message on Building the Perfect pc for Minecraft

    I would say probably an RTX 2070 or even 2070 super for the GPU and for the CPU maybe a 3000 series Ryzen 7 (Ryzen 5 could be okay too, but make sure your clock-speed is good and high, 3.5+ GHz)

    posted a message on Running a dedicated Minecraft server?

    I would recommend a CPU with at least a 3.0 GHz base-clock, Minecraft (including the server portion) is very single-core bound.

    I'm not that familiar with SEUS shaders, but what you have sounds good. The GPU might be a little overpowered, but if it's well within your budget, the future flexibility might be nice; as well as if your monitor has a refresh-rate of more than 60 Hz.

    posted a message on Can't allocate more than 1GB of RAM to server

    My computer won't let my Minecraft server take more than 1GB of RAM. If I try putting the 2GB allocation command in the .bat file, and run it, the command prompt windows says something about not being able to get that much RAM. The computer I'm running the server on has 8GB of RAM, so I'm not sure why this is happening.

    posted a message on PC questions

    I'm not sure what your ability level is, but in that situation I would re-install the OS and recover my files either with another PC (by plugging the HDD from the first into it) or by installing the OS in the same HDD without disrupting the existing installation and them pulling the files once the second install is complete (I've never actually tried that last one and I'm not 100% sure it would work).

    posted a message on Problems Running My Home MC Server

    So I'm doing some testing of MC servers in preparation for when I hope to host a little server for my friends and family. I've already posted a thread about this, but I'm making a new one for some new issues and I'll add any additional problems I encounter them.

    Problem #1: My .bat file with minecraft.net's provided command doesn't seem to be giving the server any more RAM, it still says something like "204 mb (38% free)" implying I'm getting only ~500 mb for my server. In my .bat file I have the following command "java -Xmx1024M -Xms2048M -jar server.jar nogui". Task manager shows the sever as taking all 2048 MB, but the server's little graph in the top left, says otherwise.

    Problem #2: I'm not sure how critical this is, but if I try to open the server via that same .bat file (which I'm told should work) it opens for a slit-second and then disappears...

    Problem #3: I can't change my IP to be static without my internet access mysteriously disappearing.

    posted a message on Funny School Stories Thread

    This actually happened exactly one day less than a year ago. I had to go to a presentation along with all the other students in my grade. We went to the presentation room and the presenter started. It was all fine until I saw one of her slides proclaiming "Its safe". Well naturally, I wasn't going to stand for this, my hand shot up, "Yes? You in the back?" "There should be an apostrophe there." I pointed. 500+ kids let out a long "Ooooohhh." The presenter, being somewhat embarrassed, said "Okay, I only made this 15 minutes ago." I don't think I've ever felt more satisfied in my life.

    posted a message on Home-hosted server bandwidth requirements

    I've been wanting to host a server for my family and a few friends for a while now. However, I realized that I might run into bandwidth limitations. I plan to host the server on a computer separate from the one I'll be playing on. I plan on having ~3 players locally and <4 elsewhere. What kinds of upload/download speeds would I need for this?

    Quote from KittenKatja»

    You need to have optifine for the redstone colour to be customizable.

    Make an "optifine" folder in the assets folder, there make a "colormap" folder.

    In the colormap folder, create a redstone.png picture, that is 16 pixels width and 1 pixel high.

    From left to right, each pixel is one colour state for each power of the redstone, far left being off, far right being next to a redstone torch.


    Would I just make the colourmap all white, all black, all transparent, or the grey colour I want the dust to be?

    posted a message on Building personal servers, Advice Needed.

    Minecraft will favour one thread but can use many more; my laptop, which has an 8-thread processor, will run Minecraft with one thread almost maxed and the others at 30%-40%. Go for the quad-core.
