    Nope. You'd want armor based on whatever task you are doing. Like if you are blaze farming, a set of fire protection would be what you'd want vs regular protection. See the chart on this page for details.

    Need to order more RAM, VMs leave my system tight on memory. Also going to get another 512GB 960 Pro and run them in RAID0 to bump up my OS drive. Damn SteamVR games eat a lot of space, lol. Thought about upgrading to i9/2080 but so far I haven't had any issues in the games I play so I figure it's just a waste of money.

    I'd be more worried about that ancient CPU than the HDD. HDD is easily fixed; SSDs are cheap.

    The way I prep my coffee is to take the cup, add the beans, pour in the water, stir, then pour it down the drain and refill the cup with iced tea lol

    Vanilla Minecraft server or Spigot? I had that prob once, I ended up throwing Essentials on and using the EssentialsSpawn and it worked great.

    posted a message on Same IP Address but Different Servers

    Lemme guess, he has shared hosting? You likely need to ensure the port is correct for his instance. Like on a lot of shared cheap hosting they say you can use like 1.2.3.4:25001 for example. The :25001 is a non-standard port specification. If his server is using the default port, you'd put 1.2.3.4 and it'd be fine. But if not, putting 1.2.3.4 gets you whomever's server is running on the standard port. You'd need to specify his server's port to get to his server.

    If you can get on the same wifi, you can open to LAN. Just be sure your firewall has been opened for Minecraft. If you can't get on the same network, you can setup port forwarding but if you think this requires a genius to get working you may be better off doing as they suggest and getting a hosted server instead. Much less hassle.

    posted a message on Friends cant join server

    I can connect to my server using my external IP address (the one that doesn't start with 192).


    Did you mean "can't"? Cuz if you can connect with the external IP, I don't see the problem. Be sure your port forwarding has the right internal IP and be sure your internal is static so it doesn't change and break the forwarding. Check that the router firewall is allowing it to pass, though I've yet to meet a router that doesn't automatically open the port when you do the forwarding config. If Windows, did you open your firewall using a program trigger or a port trigger? If the former, try using a port trigger on TCP 25565. If you aren't using query, you don't need UDP.

    Protection 4 is a global protection, fire is a specific protection. You can't mix both. If you had a book of thorns enchant for example, that'd work as it doesn't conflict.

    Quote from Agtrigormortis»

    He did say he wanted a computer that costs within the budget of 100 to 300$, so his options will be very limited for that kind of budget, desktop or laptop it doesn't matter, he isn't getting a high end computer with that budget.


    Better to advise the saving of more money than to push a machine that is not sufficient to the stated goal.

    PS he'd be better off doing like this guy:

    ...and buying used; it'd be a much more capable machine than a brand new NUC.

    If that was my box, I'd get a better video card and an SSD. The SSD won't make a difference to Minecraft though, I just like things loading fast.

    War of Souls trilogy by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. Part of the "Dragonlance" series. I typically read fantasy. David Eddings, R.A. Salvatore, Raymond Feist, Jane Lindskold, Anne McCaffrey, that kind of thing.

    posted a message on Public people can join but local people cannot (minecraft Server)

    If your local IP address and theirs are on different networks, which is what I assume you mean by "not the same" then you aren't connecting to the same network device. All machines need to be connecting to the same network. You said you forced your "IPv4"; did you do that as a DHCP reservation or did you edit the IP in your network adapter? What is your local IP and what is the local IP of one of the machines who cannot connect to you?


    Lastly, IPv4 does NOT mean a private / local IP. It's not like public IP and an IPV4 are opposites. Public IPs are almost always IPv4 too. IPv4 is just an addressing format, it has absolutely nothing to do with whether it's a private or public IP.
