    My point exactly. This is what corporations don't want.

    You're not wrong, but you're talking about a plugin. And while I agree that self and online taught coders' code is absolutely terrifying to look at and near impossible to debug because it's so messy, you can still sign up for local classes instead of waiting until college and then realizing you're studying in the wrong field.



    I agree with you, I was just warning him aboutit if he was planning on making it into a career

    If you're looking to only create plugins, that could be fine. You'd make alot of poorly coded crap. If you were looking to go into the real world with it, don't use the internet. They'll teach you bad techniques that company's wont want they're employees doing.


    Quote from jcm2606»

    This is true, but if someone keeps going and does evolve their skills, their coding style and quality will evolve with them and get better. And might I ask, by people who taught themselves online, are you talking about those who actually try to learn, or copy-paste code? Because there's a big difference there.


    That sounds like, the equivalent of what we call in my area of study, a Script Kiddy. They are consider sub-human and not worth talking about.

    I really hope you're sarcastic. I learned Java, JavaScript, and Python while in my Junior High years. It doesn't take the next Einstein to learn how to code. You can try online courses, or have the local nerd down the street teach it to you, or try and find classes near you.


    I'm talking about the quality of the code. I've heard you can tell when someone has been taught in college and when someone was taught online and that there's a huge difference. I'm not big into coding (system administration), but I always hear my friends complain about self/online taught coders.

    There's a reason its taught in college. You'll get very basic skills and bad advice of the internet. If you're looking to only create plugins, that could be fine. You'd make alot of poorly coded crap. If you were looking to go into the real world with it, don't use the internet. They'll teach you bad techniques that company's wont want they're employees doing. Either way, its a lot of work and commitment.

    posted a message on How do i get redstone in minecraft?

    You need to use an iron pickaxe, stone and wooden pickaxes will not drop anything from breaking a redstone block.

    For information on iron pickaxes (including how to make them):

    You'll need to know how to program with Java. This is the programming language Minecraft was coded in. It's nothing easy, many people go to college to learn how to use Java.

    posted a message on Where exactly to port forward?

    It depends on what router and modem you have. If you have a layer 3 modem, you'll want to port forward that. If not, port forward the router. It all depends on what device is doing NAT (NAT is a layer 3 protocol), which is typically the router(a layer 3 device). If you want to learn more about that, i'll give a non-necessary description of it below.


    EDIT: I've never seen or heard of a layer 3 modem. I'm not sure where you heard about port forwarding your modem.


    Every internet connection needs an IP to connect to the internet. There are only 4,294,967,296 IPs and many of these are not available. As you might guess, there are many more things trying to use the internet than that. If everything/everyone trying to access the internet had its own IP, there wouldn't be enough IP addresses for everyone. The solution to this is a thing called NAT. NAT allowed for one IP to be used by everyone on a network. So when you're at home, you might have your computer, your xbox, and a family member's computer on the same network. Once your computer goes onto the internet, it will use the same IP address that you xbox and other computers use. The problem with this occurs when someone tries to connect to your computer from the internet. When they try to find your computer, they use the IP address that you use to get out. When you use this IP, it represents all the devices on your network. There's no way router to know what device these people are trying to get to. Thus, port forwarding was created. When you open a port on your router, it knows that whenever it gets a request with a certain number added onto the end of your ip address (usually 2555 in minecraft) it needs to forward the traffic to a specific device on the network (your computer). Therefore, when you port forward your router, you're telling it anything that comes to your router with the port (usually 2555), it needs to be sent to your computer. Once your computer gets the traffic, it lets the minecraft server deal with it.

    posted a message on How do I make fire spread infinitely?

    This feature was added for a reason. Now with biomes, it's especially needed. It was very common to spawn in a word, build a house, start a simple lifestyle, and then have it all to burn to the ground. Why? Because of surface lava. The chances of it igniting a tree were small, but guaranteed to happen at some point. At that point there was nothing you could do, it would just spread, and the amount of distance it could travel from tree to tree was too far. The mess it left behind was awful, it didn't burn the trees all the way, there were just random wood blocks everywhere. I've had entire projects burn down because of fire spread, one of which I had to watch. I had spent days on it, it was huge, and once the fire started, there was no putting it out.


    TLDR:
    No, it was taken for a reason, there are no plans to ever add it back.

    1. Minecraft Name - IamaJayhawk

    2. Age - 17

    3. Location - Kansas

    4. Skype - (If you'd like me to message you on skype instead) Left skype because of privacy issues. Im on raidcall though: IamaJayhawk

    5. Tell us a bit about yourself - I've been playing minecraft since early Alpha and started multiplayer in beta. After all that time, I'm still not a very good builder haha. I'm in a gaming comunity named Revolution of Gaming and had my share of leadership. I'm a music and audio ethusiast, i'm often labled an Audiophile :D

    6. Why do you want to join NamelessCraft, and why should we choose you? - I've been looking for a server to settle down on and this one may be just right. I'm a thinker and I have enough common sense to not be a complete jerk. I'm not going to lie though, I do enjoy to troll every once in awhile.

    7. How often can we expect to see you online? - It really depends. I've committed to allot of leadership roles that require allot of my time. With summer upcomming I should have allot of time on my hands though.

    8. What kind of building style do you like to use the most? - Midevil/steampunk

    9. What is your favourite thing to do in game? - I dont really know, I like to explore?

    10. Do you have any nice screenshots or your previous builds, if so please show them :) - This was a RP server I built awhile ago. http://iamajayhawk.imgur.com/server

    11. Would you rather play solo or with a group? - It really depends on what type of people im with.

    12. Have you ever been banned? If yes why? - Once for "xray" but it was appealed when I showed the recording I was taking at the time that showed I wasn't.

    13. If anyone recommended our server post their names here -

    14. Do you agree to all the rules above (read them!) - Yep, I don't really have a favourite animal.

    Quote from Joka10

    There's not much to update about really :( There are occasional spurts of activity with this but it always dies down quickly. I'm not really sure why. People are still interested, but just too busy or something. Maybe it'll happen one day... we have a lot of cool ideas down but that's really about it :/

    Hello, I dont know if you remeber me but I was a donor back in the good ol days of The Plague. I remeber it as one of my favorite servers. Just thought I'd let you know if you need any help, i'll have allot of time this summer.
