    posted a message on How to Add Colour to Your Server MOTD

    Confirmed working with Minecraft 1.12


    Welcome to my tutorial on how to colour and format your servers MOTD! If you're here, then you have probably tried to do a MOTD such as "&5Vauff's Awesome Server!". Sadly though, it would have shown up like this.



    Let's try to fix this shall we? First we're going to need to get rid of the &5 and make the MOTD "Vauff's Awesome Server!" again. Before we more in depth to tutorial lets go over the colour and formatting codes again.

    &0 - BLACK
    &1 - DARK BLUE
    &2 - DARK GREEN
    &3 - DARK AQUA
    &4 - DARK RED
    &5 - DARK PURPLE
    &6 - GOLD
    &7 - GRAY
    &8 - DARK GRAY
    &9 - INDIGO
    &a - GREEN
    &b - AQUA
    &c - RED
    &d - PINK
    &e - YELLOW
    &f - WHITE
    &k - Obfuscated
    &l - Bold
    &m - Strikethrough
    &n - Underline
    &o - Italic
    &r - Reset

    Now, in order to get our MOTD coloured or formatted we need to put \u00A7 instead of the &. So something like &5 would turn into \u00A75. The full list of these is listed below.

    \u00A70 - BLACK
    \u00A71 - DARK BLUE
    \u00A72 - DARK GREEN
    \u00A73 - DARK AQUA
    \u00A74 - DARK RED
    \u00A75 - DARK PURPLE
    \u00A76 - GOLD
    \u00A77 - GRAY
    \u00A78 - DARK GRAY
    \u00A79 - INDIGO
    \u00A7a - GREEN
    \u00A7b - AQUA
    \u00A7c - RED
    \u00A7d - PINK
    \u00A7e - YELLOW
    \u00A7f - WHITE
    \u00A7k - Obfuscated
    \u00A7l - Bold
    \u00A7m - Strikethrough
    \u00A7n - Underline
    \u00A7o - Italic
    \u00A7r - Reset


    You would also be able to use § in replacement of the & instead of \u00A7 if you choose to do so.


    After replacing the &5 in my MOTD with \u00A75 my MOTD now looks like this.



    Hope you found this tutorial helpful :)

    posted a message on BreakIn' Bad | The official SecurityCraft server!

    We've decided to upload the world from the server! This is from the latest backup that we have of the BreakIn' Bad Minecraft server. We did not want to give this out initially but have decided that it is now a good time to do it, since players have mostly moved on. This backup was taken on August 29th, 2015 while BreakIn' Bad closed on October 8th, 2015. This obviously isn't ideal and is the same reason we had to close the server, but we hope you can enjoy this nostalgic experience anyways.


    To use this in your Minecraft client, please copy the world (main world) and creative (creative world) folders to your .minecraft/saves/ folder. Both these worlds were used in Minecraft 1.7.10 using SecurityCraft 1.7.4.1. While it is recommended you use those versions, Minecraft 1.8 and SecurityCraft 1.8 should work too. However, compatibility can not be guaranteed. Cheats have been enabled for both worlds for ease of use.


    Please take note of the warps.txt file also included, this file includes the old warp names and coordinates of the warps. You can use these to navigate to different areas in the server you'd like to go to. They are sorted into categories based on the world You can use the tp command as so. /tpx y z (e.g. /tp -240 65 414 for south warp).


    Download 1 | Download 2


    (Both downloads are identical, just different services in case one goes down)


    We hope that you enjoy this world download, have a merry christmas!


    Sincerely,
    Vauff and the rest of the BiB staff team.


    EDIT: IMPORTANT!!! If you get an issue where upon opening the world in SecurityCraft 1.8 the world loading hangs, you just have to wait for it to load! This happens because Forge detects a changed item in the new version and then tries to make a backup of the world. Thing is, this world is 4.5 gigabytes when uncompressed. So this results in having to wait a long time for the backup to be made and the world loaded. This will only happen once on the first loading.

    See this page, you'll either want to give them commandsigns.use.regular or commandsigns.use.super depending on what type of signs you want them to be able to use.

    posted a message on [SOLVED] Can't edit own post?

    Editing has been temporarily disabled editing for members with under 5 posts as of yesterday because of the recent spam in Minecraft Discussion using an editing tactic to bypass the spam filter. It should be re-enabled once we have a more permanent solution to stop it.

    But why did it involve messing up the ability to use Unicode format in the threads?


    This had nothing to do with April fools, we had to block them after a large spam bot attack yesterday.

    You should contact Curse Support for help with that. However, it looks like you already recovered the account considering it was last active an hour ago, is that correct?

    posted a message on Is Hosting a Minecraft Server Safe?

    It's not the best for a public server, but if you're just hosting it for friends and family then you'll be completely safe. Even if making it public, there is still a very small chance of anything going wrong. So you'll be completely fine if its a private server.

    I was able to block it in uBlock using the filter "www.minecraftforum.net###ServerAd". You and your friends could try using that.
