    posted a message on Gravestone mod

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but your mod is "incompatible" with Sponge. Both Sponge and Gravestones register /gs, causing Forge to crash on startup. Would appreciate it if you could remove /gs from your mod or perhaps make it configurable.

    posted a message on Realistic Terrain Generation (RTG) — Realistic Biomes, Huge Mountains, Custom Trees, Truly Flat Terrain, Breathtaking Landscapes

    Hello, I was wondering if there's a setting to increase the "scale" of biomes. I'd like larger biomes (the way the Vanilla Large Biomes world type generates) but with RTG.

    posted a message on Should I get an SSD?
    If you're going to buy an SSD, you should make sure that:

    1. Your motherboard supports SATA 3
    2. Your motherboard supports TRIM
    3. The SSD supports SATA 3
    4. The SSD supports TRIM

    You'll need SATA 3 and TRIM to make sure you get the most out of the SSD. I'm not sure what your budget is, but a Samsung EVO is a wicked drive and I highly reccomended it. If you want to get a little more extreme, you could grab an ASUS RAIDR, which is basically a PCI-E mounted SSD. the RAIDR is loaded with a ton of features too, but it might be overkill for what you're using it for.

    posted a message on What server is everybody using?
    There is a 1.7 compatibile version of Spigot, but it does not have any of the new content. It's fairly unstable and most people aren't using it. There is however, another build of Spigot by a user on their forums that is much more stable and contains some, but not all of the new content.

    Roblox != Minecraft

    Two totally different games with totally different objectives. You can't compare them.

    Why don't you link to the study Google did? and how are you verifying the "stock" garbage collector that is being used by Minecraft?

    posted a message on Java, Memory, and Minecraft - Server Launcher 1.7.1 ready
    Figured I'd throw my two cents in.

    I have never had an issue with server lag or client lag in regards to Java as the origin. Last time I checked, the JVM makes numerous optimizations on startup based upon the hardware it is running (which is why Java and C# and decent languages to work with, among other things). You should not need to specify any flags except in rare cases. My server flags are as follows:

    -server -Xmx12G -XX:+DisableExplicitGC

    Specifying too many flags can cause more harm than good most of the time. You should only be tweaking flags for your own system, as each system has it's differences. On top of that, if you really want to tweak flags properly, you should be using something like VisualVM.

    posted a message on What Block Height Will Make You Have 1/2 of a Heart Left?
    The formula 'x - 3' can be used to determine how much health you have left after a fall, where x represents the fall distance. A player has 20 health, so we'll add 3 onto it to get a fall distance of 23. This would kill the player however (it would do a solid 20 damage), so we want to decrease it by 1, to get a distance of 22.

    posted a message on Need a name for my new server.
    Be original and don't use "craft" and the likes. Try sticking to a name that can't be confused easily. I jammed two words together, "more" and "drum" and came up with my server's name. If you're super stuck, write down a list of no more than 50 potential names. Go over it a few times and cross out whatever you don't like. Keep doing this until you're down a considerable number of possibilities. Show these off to various players and have them vote on them.

    Note: the following thread will be filled in with full server info later today, I have been called into work early and will not be able to finish it right now. The basics are below.

    Mordrum SMP is a large, and very old (2 Years+) survival server that caters to other gametypes via a creative world. We are fun, running on powerful hardware, and very serious about Minecraft. We also follow a "Pure Survival" code, meaning that if you see it in the survival world, it was created by hand. Item spawns are not allowed here, so don't ask! If you're looking for a new kind of Minecraft SMP experience, check out Mordrum today!

    Server IP: play.mordrum.com
    Website: mordrum.com

    Reply to this thread with your username, and something you like about Mordrum to receive a free spin on our prize wheel. Free spins will be handed out a few times a day, so don't worry if we don't get to you immediately!

    posted a message on Server Host Review and Recommendation
    So I've received a lot of questions in the past about the hardware that my servers are hosted on. I don’t own my servers for a few reasons, but lease them instead. Many newcomers get scammed pretty hard when it comes to this, others jump onto the cheapest deal they can find which almost always ends badly (and I mean BADLY). So today I decided to post a short review about my server host, 1and1 Internet.

    For starters, 1and1 is a huge and respectable company. A lot of people steer clear of them because their tech support center is located in India/Asia. While this is true, I've never had a problem with them. However, the dedicated server technical support center is located in the USA. You’ll only get the Indian/Asian one if you have a website package or something similar. But regardless of where the support is located, it has always gone smoothly for me and I always get an email as soon as the call is finished with any information I need (FAQs, who to contact if I need further support, etc). I’ve been with hosts in the past where you get told to politely **** off, which is never nice (I will not mention company names).

    As for the server quality, you have 3 types to choose from; Virtual Server, Cloud Server, and Dedicated Server. I lease dedicated servers and dedicated servers only because of the price and the hardware I get for my money. 1and1 offers 9 dedicated server options, all of which are great choices but should also be looked over carefully. I lease servers from the top two brackets but only because I need the power. DO NOT LEASE HARDWARE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED. I knew someone who was trying to get new hardware for a Minecraft server and leased the 1st server from the 3rd bracket. Needless to say, his server went down the tube and he still has 8 months’ worth of bills to pay. Don’t know what hardware you need? Start small and try to optimize, it can go a long way (I talk about this down below). I won’t talk much about the actual hardware; it is what it says it is. The available operating system list is incorrect though, here is the full one:
    • CentOS 6 with Parallels Plesk Panel 11 (64-bit)
    • CentOS 5 minimal system (32-bit)
    • CentOS 5 minimal system (64-bit)
    • CentOS 6 minimal system (32-bit)
    • CentOS 6 minimal system (64-bit)
    • Debian 6 minimal system (32-bit)
    • Debian 6 minimal system (64-bit) – Personal Favorite
    • openSUSE 12.1 minimal system (32-bit)
    • openSUSE 12.1 minimal system (64-bit)
    • openSUSE 12.1 with Parallels Plesk Panel 11 (64-bit)
    • openSUSE 12.2 minimal system (64-bit)
    • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS minimal system (32-bit)
    • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS minimal system (64-bit)
    • Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS minimal system (32-bit)
    • Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS minimal system (64-bit)
    You can change your server’s OS by clicking on “server re-image in your 1and1 control panel. Nothing is blocked on the servers; you can do whatever you want with them. They also come with 250GBs of free secure backup space that is not in the same machine, making it a great place to store sensitive files (Map backups for example). Another concern some of you may have is bandwidth, dedicated servers come with it unmetered and free.

    That’s all for my review, nice and short just like I said. 1and1 is not paying me to write this but I would appreciate it if you clicked my affiliate link down below. It does not impact you in anyway. If you decide to make a purchase however, I get a small cut (Helps pay for pizza, Kraft Dinner, and rent).

    Server Optimization:
    Optimizing your server is very easy and can save you in the long run. If you’re running Bukkit, I suggest install NoLagg. My favorite feature in it is the TNT packet limiter; it lets my players use TNT without crashing the server. BorderGuard is also very good; it helps keep the map to a fixed size. Map generation will eat your CPU and your disk space. I suggest turning down the chunk view limit in server.properties too. That’s all really, nothing big, but it’ll allow you to get the most out of your hardware.

    We stopped using Towny not too long ago and are switching to a custom coded system instead. The new system will be launching Aug. 31st, plenty of time to gather supplies and make your name known on Mordrum.

    posted a message on Mineral water PC fake?
    H20 = H Followed by 20
    H20 = 20 Hydrogen Atoms
    H2O = 2 Hydrogen Atoms, 1 Oxygen Atom (Water)

    We use subscript for a reason, and if memory serves (Might be wrong, it's been a while) Something like H45(OF) would be the only time it's appropriate to use a non-subscripted number.
