Nov 13, 2012Ever since I've played UnrealTournament(1999) serious ladder competitions I've turned bobbing off in all the FPS games I play. I need that silky smooth way of moving through the environment in order to shoot accurately.Posted in: Discussion
Minecraft is very slow paced so accuracy really isn't an issue. It's just something that I have gotten used to after years of gaming
Nov 13, 2012Saying words are just words is, in my opinion, a poor justification for bad language. Fortunately there are also servers where that sort of stuff isn't tolerated. We run a Small World server which is kinda Vanilla-ish. Yes it's basically a Bukkit server with a number of plugins to help prevent grief: Minebans, CoreProtect, NoCheatPlus. There is only 1 gameplay changing pluging: Lockette, which is also to prevent a lot of hassle for the moderators and admins.Posted in: Discussion
For our team it's simply undoable to moderate the server 24/7. And fixing grief just isn't the way we want to spend our precious spare time.
When people have proven they are mature enough, which isn't age related at all in my experience, players get to play on our real Vanilla server. This server is plain Minecraft. No Bukkit, no plugins, just minecraft_server.jar from minecraft.net
Running a community where you can have a 'clean' Vanilla server with people that are simply fun to play with is a lot of work though. It takes quite a lot of effort to screen out players you don't want there.
Nov 5, 2012Hehe, I didn't mean to make it sound crudePosted in: Server Recruitment
We enjoy it when someone becomes part of the community. People who just fill slots on the servers aren't very interesting imo. The people that do become community members eventually find their way onto our Vanilla server. There we have 'hoarders' (pun ;)) that gather resources other people use to build fantastic things. Most people there are long time members we've been playing with for over a year. If that sounds good to you, then you're welcome
Nov 5, 2012We have a couple of servers you might like. If you enjoy hoarding, you might be interested in our Prison server. If you prefer a challenge you can try our Skyblock server. We're currently working on a Tekkit server, but that might be too much modifications for your tastePosted in: Server Recruitment
You can find our server list here: http://happydiggers.net/content.php?117-servers&tabid=37
We don't do much in the way of donations. In fact we closed down our only paid-for (Towny)server last week due to lack of donations and the fact that we didn't want to pay for it ourselves since we have several other servers we lovingly take care of.
Our Vanilla server is whitelisted. Access is usually only granted to those community members we've come to trust. People on the whitelist get to choose who else gets to be whitelisted. There's a thread about it on our forum. We try to post new titbits on the website daily to keep things interesting. If you become an active member, you can advance to moderator or even admin status. But those ranks have to do with trust more then anything else.
I hope that got your interest, and if it's not exactly what you're looking for, you're still welcome to drop by and say hello
Nov 4, 2012We have a whitelisted Vanilla server. We usually only allow people we've known for a longer period of time and of whom we know they are nice to play with.Posted in: Server Recruitment
You could look around our servers to see if you like the people there and see if people will support your whitelist application

We skipped 1.13 altogether since it was just a terribly buggy mess and started playing with 18w30a. From that point on, with the exception of 18w33a, things have gotten a lot better. At this point I'm fairly certain that 1.13.1 will be another good release.

this is the point where the java version is officially obsolete. Console version getting an update first. We can see where the focus is and it makes sense that's where it is (business wise). Java version exists solely for mods, and fewer people even use those since bedrock has the greater player count and all the momentum. It was inevitable
What you're saying is simply not true. Minecraft has sold over 122 million copies. And while the consoles have sold more than the Java edition at this point, there are still hundreds of millions of Java editions out there. Java edition is not dead. People saying that are just being dumb.
Java edition is the definitive version of Minecraft and it always will be. There are tens of thousands of mods for Minecraft Java. Even the current version 1.12 has ~3600 mods listed in 180 pages of mods on CurseForge and that's not even the complete listing of all mods available. Installing and playing mods has never been easier and if you want it even easier still you can just download one of the many mod packs available.
In my opinion people declaring Minecraft Java edition dead are the same kind of people who think console gaming is bigger than PC gaming. Spoiler: PC gaming has been bigger than all the consoles put together for years.

Receiving compensation for work is normal. However mods are not the same as professionally developed and supported DLC.
If I buy a mod, will I get support for it for as long as Minecraft is supported by Mojang? If Minecraft updates, will my paid mods still work? If the mods break due to a forced Minecraft update, can I get a refund? How long will I have to wait for mod updates after a Minecraft update?
These are, I think, valid reasons to take pause when buying mods instead of donating directly to mod authors who do a good job. Personally I only see downsides to paid mods from a consumer perspective. As long as paid mods aren't elevated to be treated equally in terms of support as professionally developed and supported DLC, I'm not going to buy any mods. Instead I will make donations to mod authors who I think are deserving of my money. Over the years I have paid more in donations than I have paid for Minecraft.

This update looks really nice. Is this content coming to people who bought Minecraft for PC during the alpha fase as was promised by Notch?

Games should become cheaper over time. Minecraft has been around for years. A 30% price increase across the board is ridiculous.
