    What's up Minecraft community, today I'd like to announce the introduction of my brand new addition to the server lineup, Galaxy Galacticraft!


    It's Galacticraft running on Spigot! So it's blazing fast, and I have it incorporated with bungeecord support so you can choose from galacticraft, or plain old Vanilla which is always fun.


    If you're not sure how to install galacticraft, I have a guide at: teksyndicraft.com

    Which also happens to be the hostname for the server. Simply join with either a Vanilla 1.8.3 client, or modded Galacticraft client, and you'll be automatically directed to the correct server, no fiddling with ports or IPs.



    We currently have a couple teams going, so you'll have to message me with more details.

    What's up guys! I've recently gone through a complete re-branding of my long-time survival server, formerly known as KodaCraft. I've also done much optimization and updates and I'm ready to re-introduce my server to the community. It currently runs on spigot, so it is highly optimized and low-lag, as well as the fact that it runs on a powerful dedicated 24/7 server with keep-alive in the case of a rare crash. We use CoreProtect for area protection, which can be a bit complicated to use, but we have an instructional video on our site. You will gain access to CoreProtect after playing for 5 hours, you can also check your time on the site. Here are a few pictures of just the spawn area.

    What's up guys, just put my galacticraft server online while I stream. I don't know if I'll keep it up permanently, but I will have it up when I stream so you can know when to join.

    Learn more and the IP here.

    Sizer does not require 32 bit. 64-bit machines can run 32-bit software.

    I can look into this, however I'm not sure if it's completely possible since it requires multiple utilities. If I have some time I could probably put together a combined tool with the border_stripper source.

    I understand that this is quite late to reply, but I've created a guide detailing how to do this seamlessly and in 'fullscreen' with up to 4 players. If you were still interested.

    I understand that this is quite the late response, but I'm simply spreading the word. I've written a guide on how to setup multiplayer on the same pc below. It allows for up to 4 players or more depending on how powerful the pc is.

    You can find it here.

    This is a guide detailing how to utilize the Joypad mod and a couple other tools to get a seamless multiplayer experience on the same PC!



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Requirements
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • Each player must have a valid minecraft account, unless a name change tool is used. (See below)
    • is a good guide showing how to 'spoof' offline players. [Start @4:57]
    • You must know the resolution of your display, if you don't know how to find this, use google.
    • Joypad Mod
    • A tool called Sizer
    • A tool called border_stripper
    • This guide is only for Windows and will be demonstrated on Windows 8
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 1: Setting up the Sessions
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It is assumed that you already have the Joypad mod installed, and that you have your input devices connected and ready.


    If you don't know how to install or use the Joypad mod, there are already guides elsewhere showing how to do this. Please use google.



    For my input devices, I used my keyboard and mouse for my session (bottom left) and 3 of my friends used wireless Xbox 360 remotes connected with a Microsoft wireless receiver. I believe this is the most friendly setup as the Joypad mod already has pre-configured controls for 360 remotes. (Similar controls to Minecraft 360)



    The first thing you should do before worrying about any window placement, sizing, etc... is to setup the sessions for all of the players that will be playing. You can this most easily by opening the launcher, logging in as the first player, launching the game. Open the launcher again, login as second player, launch the game... etc. If you have problems with the launcher not opening after the first time, right click on the icon and "Run as administrator".



    You should end up with all of your sessions started like the image below.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 1: Setting Up Sizer
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To setup the window size of each session, I used a tool called Sizer (Download in requirements). This tool allows you to easily set the exact height and width of each minecraft session. Note that this is the part where you will need to know your screen resolution.

    If you plan to host 4 players, each window will need to be half the height and width of your entire resolution to create the 4-tile setup as shown above. In my case, my display resolution is 1920x1080 (1080p), so I needed each frame to be 960x540.



    You can do this in sizer after installing and launching it, then right clicking on it's taskbar icon, and click "Configure Sizer..."



    I then simply removed all of the preset profiles, and added my own as shown below. I have a position and size for each session 1-4 players.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 2: Stripping Borders
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To remove the borders from each window, I used another tool called border_stripper which will only be used to remove each sessions window borders.



    You'll want to strip all of the borders from your game sessions by moving them all into the right column. They'll all be named the same.




    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 3: Positioning
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After removing all of the borders, you'll then want to select each individual window, and then change it's size and position. Focus on each one one at a time from the taskbar or alt+tab menu, then right-click on the sizer icon in the taskbar and choose a size for a selected session. Do this for all of your sessions and then you're set.






    Afterward, you can start configuring each session's controls and which controller will control which. Then have fun!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Getting the process right may take some trial and error, but after you get it setup once, it becomes way quicker and easier in the future. You can also reply with any questions and I'll do my best to help.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Other Notes
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You may want to turn on auto-hide on your taskbar. To do this in windows 8, right click on it, properties, and check "Auto-hide the taskbar"


    If you have problems with the game pausing after un-focusing on a session. You can fix this by changing the value pauseOnLostFocus: to false in the options.txt file located in the minecraft directory. (%appdata%\.minecraft) on windows. Note though that you'll have to close and re-open all sessions after changing this. Edit: This can also be done by pressing F3+P
