    posted a message on What's your opinion on Minecraft Servers now?
    They're ok

    I haven't been on any recently, but I prefer the small servers with tight communities. Those tend to be the more friendly ones and have a better user experience for me. I haven't really been on any major ones since the EULA enforcement but I would hope they are better now

    posted a message on [1.8] I am disappointed.
    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Mojang taking ideas from Mods. The EULA even allows them to do that without giving permission. EULA aside, some of the best ideas come from the people that are actually playing the game so why wouldn't you want that to be included in Vanilla Minecraft?

    Also, source on the optifine remark?

    posted a message on is borrowing account illegal?
    No since those accounts will usually have a gift code and you can use that gift code to access the account. Which isn't against the EULA

    This also means you cannot sell or rent the Game, or make it available for access to other people and you cannot pass on or resell any licence keys. You may however give gift codes that have been bought through our official gift code system.

    posted a message on What are some cool bukkit plugins for regular players?
    Usually what I do, is I take a look around this category every once in a while on dev bukkit.

    Usually I end up finding something interesting there.

    There's honestly not a lot you can do to force yourself into liking the game again. If you are finding that you are spending less and less time, then yes take a break. Maybe just stay up to date on the news so that when you do try to jump back in it doesn't seem like such a big mess. I left for a couple versions and when I came back, everything looked different and I had no idea what I was doing.

    Just do what the mind wants, although Minecraft is a great game, I'm sure there are lots of other things you can be doing as well, and being forced to like it is not one of them. Minecraft will be still be here when/if you come back.

    I have found myself playing less and less as I have had less and less time to learn all the new features. But yes it can be hard to learn something new if you aren't staying on top of it.

    posted a message on In-game support system: Good idea?
    I have a semi-popular bukkit plugin and I'm experimenting with the ability for owners and administrators to send in a support ticket through Minecraft to software install on my server. Right now I am using OSticket to handle my tickets rather than bukkit or GitHub but I feel like some people think its too difficult to go to my website and submit a ticket when they could just do it in-game, where the actual problem is.

    OSticket has an API so I can submit tickets (and even an error log) through Minecraft, and it works (yay!). I however, have my doubts about using it in production. There a few issues like spam and exploitation that I don't really want to deal with. Normally to combat spam, you would issue the user a secret key and that key can be revoked in case of spam or other issues, but if I implement that into the plugin then the owner could just regenerate the config.yml (or wherever the key is stored) and just start spamming support tickets again.

    I could issue a key through my server that is bound to a server IP address which first pings that server to ensure it is a Minecraft server. Then if there is any issues, I can revoke that key. A few problems with this though; getting the IP of the server can be tricky when the Minecraft server is being run on something like Multicraft. I can't rely on using Bukkit.getIP because that method returns only what the owner has set in the server.properties. Theoretically this is possible, but of course would require a bunch of testing.

    So anyways my question is, would it be worth it to put into production? Or should I just scrap the idea. Open to suggestions as well :)

    Anybody know what's going to happen with donation plugins? Are they going to be removed from places like dev bukkit and such?

    BS.


    BS. It's overpriced and doesn't even have its own dedicated graphics.

    Who says you need dedicated graphics to run Minecraft well? Integrated works just fine.

    Honestly, I don't think we need more server advertisements at the very top of MCF.

    Another update, another hate thread.

    I don't think people realize how hard it is to make a game and how hard it is to provide updates that the community will enjoy. Mojang is doing an excellent job of keeping up to date with the community requests, so give them a break.

    Also there could be no mods at all. If Mojang really wanted to, they could file copyright claims on all the major modding communities, but they don't because they care about mods and modders.
