I'm not really sure this is the right board, but I'll still post it here. Because it's pretty much about everything.
Anyway, here's the deal:
I've had my own server for a while and been waiting like crazy for the patch with damage would come out, and now when it finally has, I have several questions!
My internet is not really the greatest, so meanwhile I'm posting this I am also searching for someone who can host the server 24/7 since that's our plan. I'm currently hosting it myself, but my friends say that when we are quite a few, lag can oqqur (spelling?). Anyway, so now when the patch has finally arrived I want to tweak my server to the fullest.
I'll first list a few mods that I'm looking for (I'm in a bit of a hurry and the search function is still down.. Right?):
ClanMod: Is this possible? I mean FFA is cool and all, but to have a server with clans like 3v3v3v3v3 would be even cooler.
Some kind of mod that removes the see names through objects. This is because that will remove all the fun on sneaking up behind your oppenent! You want to be able to kill your opponent by surprise, not that he sees you from a mile away!
I already possess Llama and Hey0.
>: Some kind of mod where you can insert a block which can only be destroyed by certain stuff. I want it to be as realistic as possible. For example I don't want you to be able to mine through my newly built fortress, but still, be able to destroy it with TNT for example. There will ofc be rules, but they will always be broken and then the damage is already done. Yes, you take backups, but perhaps mr.X foound 10 diamonds during this time.
I'm not the greatest in Computers, but I still know a lot. So how can I specify my RAM memory to fully focus the Minecraft server? This computer/server is online 24/7 and I only use it to download and host servers. I won't download when there are players online of course. But how do I configure my computer AND network to fully focus the MC server? To give the fullest to the player before I find a proper host.
Since I'm quite new to this and haven't had the time to search, I DO believe it is possible to change the spawnpoints, am I right? I really want to change the spawnpoint for one clan/player so that they don't spawn in the middle. Perhaps they built a mile away.. Now that's a long walk! So there should be one spawnpoint for newcomers, and then different spawnpoints for the different players depending on where they live. Only OPs should be able to change this so it doesn't get abused.
Hmm.. That's all I can think of right now, but like I said I'm in a bit of a hurry. But I really wanted to type this before I left.
If you have any tips of any other mods or reccomendations, please do tell! I'm always open for suggestions :smile.gif:!
Well, I mostly created this thread to optimize the server modwise, the lag/bandwith questions was a little off-topic. So that's why I didn't give any specific details about it. My internet is the thing causing my lags then, since you said 2 GB RAM is alright.
I was just looking to see what the least required was for having a working MC server for about 20 players.
My internet is the problem and that's why I was looking for a host.
"As for getting someone else to host it - That's a tricky matter. You would have to have some sort of shell or remote desktop access to their server, in order for you to administer all your plugins. Unless you're expecting the server host to do that for you as well?"
I was actually thinking that someone who was interested in this kind of server would host/play on it himself. So whenever we needed updates and stuff, he would just do it manually. I'm not looking for a specific random person that'll host my server and then I expect everything to be solved by him. Of course not, it would be someone who WANTED to host it, and help the server to be on 24/7 and run flawlessly.
So meanwhile I wanted to optimize my server, and now you answered a few of my questions which I'm grateful for. The net is the problem.
Now to the other stuff, I was mostly asking if anyone knew any of these mods exist so I could visit its thread and download it. If noone does.. Well then hopefully one day they will.
EDIT: PM Me, and I'll PM you the server IP.
I'm working on setting everything up. Server rules, and everything. But right now there's only a safe house in the middle.
