    posted a message on ethood1999 PvP - NEW 24/7 HARDCORE PVP BUKKIT SERVER
    ethood1999 PvP Server


    Every server out there is the same nightmare for everyone.. No one acknowledges you, theres far too many people on, and as a new person, you can practically do nothing. And when PvP is thrown into the mix and you're getting killed randomly without any help, frustration is probably the only thing you feel. That changes. Today. Right now.

    Hi, I'm ethood1999. I created a server back in February because while SSP was amazing, I wanted more. My server has consisted of many of my Minecraft friends, and as time went on, we progressed, from Creative, to Survival to now PvP. We are taking a hardcore approach at PvP so that it could be as enjoyable as possible, even with the combat limitations of Minecraft. We play under almost no rules, so if you can handle just these main ones, then you will have an amazing experience on the server.

    • Greifing, stealing, random killing - everything is ALLOWED.
    • Respect moderators and admins and they will respect you.
    • Most of all, have fun! Minecraft is for fun, and if you're not enjoying yourself, what's the use?

    The way our server works is simple. You log in and you are in the middle of our spawn city which is a protected area that you can't get killed in. You should have a fountain in front of you and the shop is just past that (see screenshot 1). If you turn to your left, you will see the City Hall, marked the word "Hall" in glowstone (see screenshots 2 and 3). As a new person, you want to head in there. The first thing you should see is a whole bunch of huge, player-modeled statues (see screenshots 4 and 5 for an example). Each statue is built by and modeled after the leaders of each of our servers factions. Walking up to them will allow you to see signs on the statues that contain information about the faction, joining and how to join if you're interested. When you find the right faction, ideally, you probably will want to message the faction leader if they are online.

    Getting into a faction is the first step of your long journey on the server. When you are a part of a faction, you are a part of a family. Your faction does everything together, or if they aren't doing it together, have a coordinated plan to work together (like 2 people mining and another 2 people exploring for enemy bases and another 2 people expanding the base). It's important that you get along with everyone. You should put yourself out there as a friendly person, because if two people don't get along, you put a hard decision on the faction leaders shoulders.

    There's lots of exciting moments that can happen on the server like being invaded and having to quickly decide what to do in a now or never moment. Your faction might be planning a secret base on any of the other factions. While they were offline, you might have been in their base, knowing the exact location of everything, and maybe you have a TNT cannon set up outside, ready to blow them and their base up.. Literally, there's loads of possibilities of stuff that you can do on the server.

    PvP can be fun and all, but what's the goal?

    Good question. This is where the technical part of the server comes in. It might be a little bit confusing, but as a normal user, you only need to understand stuff about chest protection. Since that's easy to explain, I will start with that. If a user on a faction is online, their factions chests are all unlocked. If no one on a faction is online, then their chests become locked. Not a confusing concept, but I might be able to explain it better. Say PersonA and PersonB are both in FactionA, and PersonC is in FactionB. PersonA logs off for the night, leaving PersonB as the only one online on FactionA. Anyone that is online the server can open any chest that is in FactionA territory. Anyone and everyone. But when PersonB has to go, all of the chests automatically lock. This way, you can't steal from chests while no one is online and their chests can't be defended.

    The next technical part is claiming land. Each person is entitled to 10 chunks, so if there is a 3 person faction, their whole faction is entitled to 30 chunks. But when someone dies, no matter how (killed by another play, fall damage, suicide, anything), they lose 2 power and in turn, their faction loses 2 power. So if FactionA has PersonA and PersonB, their faction can claim up to 20 chunks. Say their faction only claims 18 chunks. It would take two collective deaths towards that faction before anyone else can claim land. So if PersonC kills PersonB twice, then their faction can only handle 16 chunks out of the 18 that they have claimed. This leaves an oppurtunity for anyone else (or PersonC himself) to claim any 2 chunks of FactionA's territory for their team. But that isn't only limited to PersonC's faction. FactionC can be waiting and PersonD could be ready to claim the 2 chunks as soon as PersonC kills PersonB, which could lead to a really interesting and fun 3-way war.

    Like I said, the possibilities are endless, especially with all of the features in Minecraft. They are very few servers out there like this. So now you are probably wondering how to join the server. There is no whitelist, so anyone can freely join as long as they have the IP address, but it would be helpful if you voted for our server on the following sites:

    posted a message on Building RAM/ROM/CPU/ALU, etc.
    Quote from TheXboxNut

    Build your way up with redstone mechanisms. Don't go from gates to CPU's, do things like counters, displays, solve basic problems, then read up on computers and mix it all up


    All those things, I can't find clear-cut tutorials on them because everyone assumes that if you're going beyond the basic stuff then you know everything redstone-related. I can come up with a display, a 7-segment display, but once again, no idea how to make it count from 0-9 or any numbers for that matter. That's why I made this thread.

    To some people, it's so simple. I just need someone to break it down and explain it without all the super-smart computer engineering languages.

    Thanks for the help, but I'm still at square 1 - I don't even know how to design the ROM and the RAM and everything. My question is how are they made? They are a combination of what? I know all the logic gates, I just need someone to break it down for me because all the tutorials I find are too advanced and/or complicated.

    I know all the basics of redstone, including all the gates but one thing that has always seemed so foreign to me is redstone computers.. I have never taken a computer engineering/sciences class and Ibut I know a bunch about computers honestly don't know how parts of a real-life computer is made, even though I know all the functions and everything., so this post might sound a bit stupid.

    I'm interested attempting at building a computer in Minecraft, but I honestly don't know how to even start with ROM, RAM, ALUs, CPUs, all these terms that I hear all the time on peoples computers. I know I should probably be one of the last people building a computer since I don't know much about any of those, but I want to learn. So I just need someone to break it down for me and tell me how to build them, what they would do, how they should be connected, etc.

    posted a message on HACK III - Minecraft's Most Powerful Computer to Date
    This is so cool. I've read every post on this thread because I'm so interested. I have never taken a computer engineering class or anything like it but I'm definitely not computer-deficient - I know all the parts and their functions, but how they work is foreign to me.. When it comes to redstone, I'm kinda good with it, I know all the basics but I still don't understand how a computer possibly works. I don't get how to go about RAM or the ALU(s) - like what exactly are they? Is there any way you can break it up into gates? Because it looks pretty simple to me, like its not a complicated process, just the same thing repeated, correct?

    It's hard for a computer engineering major to explain redstone to someone with no experience at all in that field and actually make sense. :tongue.gif:

    That's why I ask the mighty Minecraft Forum for help. :smile.gif:

    You are giving everyone your internal IP. That will only work for you (and people on your network). You need to portforward your server first, and give us your external IP address.

    Need help portforwarding? Go here:
    www.portforward.com

    Make sure to portforward the 25565 port on both TCP and UDP.

    I consider myself to be average at redstone. I know all of the gates, and honestly, all I need is for someone to break it down carefully for me. I have never taken a computers engineering class nor do I know a thing about boolean algebra or any other place that logic gates and circuitry would be used. Someone I play Minecraft is has taken a computer engineering course and he's always talking about binary, decimal, half-adders, full-adders, etc. and I want to understand that, so I have a few questions.

    1. What exactly is binary? Can you explain it to me, like how to use binary I guess?
    2. What's decimal? What's the difference between decimal and binary?
    3. What are half-adders or full-adders or any adders?
    4. How do "computers" in Minecraft work? Are they all really just things that can add numbers?
    5. How do you build a computer? I'm not looking for specific steps, but the general gist of it.
    6. How do you determine how many bits a computer has or how do you make it have a certain amount of bits? What does bits have to do with anything? Whats the difference between 2Bit and 4Bit and 16Bit?

    I tried to make them make as much sense as possible. I'm just trying to build something really cool using redstone in Minecraft and I want to be able to understand it a lot more/better than I already do. Thanks for the help in advance! :smile.gif:

    posted a message on I AM LOOKING FOR PARTNERS AND A HOSTER
    I'm not interested, but I and many others would be much more interested if you had a mic. It takes you a split second to hear what your partner says over a skype call, but it could take 3-5 seconds before your message "Watch out there's a skeleton in front of you" pops up and by then your partner is dead/nearly dead.

    posted a message on How do YOU arrange your Inventory?
    Sword, Pickaxe, Axe, Shovel, Nothing specific, Nothing specific, Cooked Porkchop, Cooked Porkchop, Torches

    Then the slots above my tools in my inventory are extra tools. The rest is a mess. I generally just try and quickly organize stuff but there's no real rule I have for the rest of those spaces.

    When mining:
    Sword, Stone Pick, Iron Pick, Shovel, Cobblestone, Coal/Iron/Gold/whatever ore I pick up first, Coal/Iron/Gold/whatever, Cooked Porkchop, Torches

    Does anyone know if this mod is compatible with Zombes' fly mod and/or Too Many Items? If so, which order should I install all of the 6 mods (TMI, Zombes, Aether and the 3 requirements for the Aether including ModLoader)?

    EDIT: Sorry, old.

    Install ModLoader first, then AudioMod, then Shock AHPI. Then install zombe's mod but do not install id.class, xa.class, qx.class, gv.class, sk.class, os.class. Then install TooManyItems.

    It's a laptop, I would still be able to upgrade the graphics card? Someone once told me that I wouldn't be able to upgrade/change it since it's a laptop.
