Wanting to start a new server

Already have a temp server (for now) and the know how to set most of it up. once its all set up, will move it to some hosting.

Looking for interested folks to give input/feedback


few ideas im sold on:
-entirely underground, (this means day/night would not matter, at all)
-caves/caverns/etc  across the entire map.
-powered minecarts for transportation

few rules:
-first and foremost, no griefing others structures/areas
-looks (if youre going to build something, it can not be ugly)  
-permission to dig in other peoples "mines" (cant think how many times im off to grab something, i come back and a random person is in my mine, going to work on my iron ore/coal )

mods (any needed to get the job done):
- to protect certain areas
- for admins to teleport
- to power the minecarts

also need some kind of currency system..   i have heard of a few and the best one i have seen so far has been organized like this::
:|:   :Iron:  :Diamond:  :Lava:
all currency is refined, and worth more than the previous, i dont remember the numbers that were used for each type.
if you can think of something better, post it.

As far as owners/admins go, would be based on how much time/help/support/etc, you put in during the set-up phase.

Will be accepting apps LATER.  
keep an eye on this thread.  
Just looking for input, for now.

Register or log in to remove.

An entirely underground map would be interesting, but hard to live in.  It'll be much harder to get wood for tools, and since people will be getting to bedrock much quicker, you'll have to be careful about Void holes.  I'd still like to see where this server goes.

i would pre-generate the entire map and patch the bottom  (no voidholes)
I would fill the rest(above ground)  with dirt/resources and protect the top few layers (block the sun)
you would start out much higher than normal(elevation wise)

as far as wood goes, it can be grown underground with the right setup, maybe a designated area for tree farming would be fun, idk.

How long would the server take to set up?

This sounds cool. Wood would be pretty hard to get, but that would just serve to make it interesting. People would be setting up their own tree farms and such in their caves.
I'll definitely apply for this once you get it set up, it sounds like a lot of fun.

im not going to answer the setup time question, but leave you with this:

as long as it takes to get it set up EXACTLY how i want it.

once everything is working, and protected correctly, and tested in a closed environment, the server will be moved and be for whitelisters only, through an app process.

I DO need one or two (not twenty) people to begin helping with initial setup...  (a few specific things, and the beginnings of what will be a duplicated minecart system, and the "cave" ceiling / floors / etc  for the home/spawn area

musts:
18+
mature
willing to follow directions
creative
good at building large objects/structures
if youre gonna be helping with minecarts, you need to understand them.

ive just added hmod with cuboid to assist in the process.

give me your in game name, and ill whitelist you.

This server sounds great, reminds me of a book series called Tunnels :)

When it gets to being a helping hand, I don't think I would be qualified as the best one :Zombie:

Try logging in with the IP you gave me. If it doesn't work, you gave me the wrong IP.

EDIT: Did you forward port 25565?

ip is from whatismyip.com  and i have the default port open, and now port 420 (just switched to it, instead of the default 25565)

did a quick readup on linux + minecraft server...   i need to get netcat running really quick.

Sorry for double post, but don't use whatismyip.com, use ipchicken.com.

Sweet.
