Hello! My name is Ron, or Ronny (Just a nickname don’t worry, that’s not my real name).
Im almost 18 years old and have been doing Minecraft servers for years, only owning one myself which I never released publicly because of payment issues with the host I chose. Well I recently applied for a new job and if I get this job I will be able to afford the hosting plan I wish to use.
My plan is, I plan on Purchasing a VPS server plan from OVH and eventually upgrading to a dedi. I plan on getting a Ubuntu desktop running VPS where I will run MineOS to host my own Minecraft servers from within my VPS. Now I see a lot of people on forums looking for tutorials on bungee cord and the proper ways to set up a professional hub server using obviously public downloadable plugins, but mainly, custom coded plugins with custom made maps.
I have 3+ years coding experience with c# and c++ so I know ways around learning a coding language self taught as I go. So with my basic knowledge of java already I plan on coding several custom plugins for my very basic Minecraft hub server.
My proposition is, I’m either way creating this server over the course of a few weeks to months and I wanted to know who wanted to be brought along for the ride, I have previously had Minecraft YouTube channels which didn’t get past 200 subs but I have a good base knowledge on editing, recording, and uploading professionally without bad quality on sound, information, and video.
My plan is even if 1 person comments, saying yes they’d be interested in a full series on a new YouTube channel I’d be creating just for this (link will be provided when this all gets setup. If I get good feedback), each video in order in the series will be uploading almost daily to every other day depending on the length of the video, or the amount of work needed for the specific video.
I would be going in depth preforming each task from start to finish of creating the server(s), editing the server files (including configuring premade plugins, to coding several new plugins per server)
I am well aware of the current videos on YouTube and the tutorials found online, but none of them have ever went fully in depth for an actual server, they all seem to be made with temperary servers and deleted after the video because the individual(s) just want to share information they aquired from their experience doing this to their own server. Personally for me I would be taking everyone along for the ride of the actual process from start to finish of creating the server(s) in this order:
(seasons will not have a delay between them but I would call them series for the playlist feature on YouTube for easy navigation between parts of the series. Seasons would be a max of 5-20 videos per season to keep the playlists easy and specific videos easy to find)
Season 1. The step by step process of purchasing the VPS, the purchasing of the extra IP addresses needed for each server, the setting up the MineOS on the VPS, creating all the servers, and bungeecording the servers together.
Season 2. This set of videos will be focused on configuring the server to the way I want my personal server to be running to hold members and run the way I would like, doing this for the 3 or 4 playable servers I want on my server
Season 3 (which may have WAYYYY More than 5 videos). This season will be focused on setting up the premade downloadable plugins (Such as, World edit, world guard, essentials, Permissions(Ex), holographic displays, Kits, etc.) this will include Configuring the plugins, beta testing all of them (on a world not accessible by the public), and making sure kits and permissions is all setup to my liking with the following ranks (‘Donator’, ‘VIP’, and ‘Legend’. As the donator ranks. Names will be changed depending on what I think is best for the server those were just examples), for the special ranks only given to special people: (‘YT’ rank for YouTubers, ‘Live’ for strictly streamers, ‘Retired’ for retirees staff members, ‘Ex’ for demoted staff members which were removed from the staff team) and for the staff members the ranks would be (‘Mod’ ‘Mod+’ ‘Admin’ ‘Manager’ (managers would manage the previously named staff members to make sure no power abuse is happening, admins would also have this for the mods), ‘Builder’ (or a specific build teams name), and obviously ‘Owner’.
Season 4. Will be based around custom coded plugins I wish to have in the server, personally I would like several custom plugins but no ideas have been “set in stone” yet so nothing will be mentioned on those just yet but I would be bringing you along for the ride of custom coding my plugins for the server!
Season 5. Will be based around building, I cannot afford build team prices just yet and no GOOD build team will want to build for just any old person such as myself an entire hub spawn with mini games around them such as parkour for people to play while waiting for their friends. So I will be personally doing “trial and error” while building myself a hub, and spawn locations. For each playable server.
Season 6. Will be a recap, recheck, and release season where the server will be releasing to the public fully! (During the beginning process all bungeed servers will be whitelisted but the main hub will be open but only in a small unbreakable glass box to view the work being done. If anyone wanted to see the progress day by day... which is doubtful because I am no one special)
Season 7. Will be all “Out-Of-MC” tutorials such as setting up the donations page, the website (because I have prior knowledge to web hosting, which I could also do from the VPS but most likely will not)
after the completion of my series, and if this is even being done if this gets any good feedback, I will be continuing to upload videos of after release tutorials, such as adding new servers if success is achieved and I can add more servers as needed. I will also be doing seasonal hubs, so during summer, I will want a summer themed hub with flowers and bright trees and swimming pools etc, during Halloween a large Halloween styled hub would be nice, and of course Christmas!! And many many more! There will also be the occasional video on how i will be running my staff team, how I run staff meetings, how I run my Tempban/mute/kick/ban logs I will have each staff member preforming. How I will be running everything with designated staff chats and other useful things.
Keep in mind this will not be a tutorial series on something like MinePlex or Hypixel, but something more along the lines of a 3-4 server, Minecraft server.
The idea behind this whole server is to have 3-4 playable servers, my server would be a free play server. Join, connect to a desired server and play! With each server being different such as SMP, Creative plots, and others to be added. My SMP will be made to have clans, or guilds, or even Factions! Which ever you prefer to call them, where you can join and be at war or peace with other groups.
Remember this is only a proposal looking for feedback to see if people are interested! So if you’re interested please drop a comment saying yes you’d be interested or no it’s pointless. I’m only looking for 1 positive comment because for every 1 comment on here there many more people not on this forum looking for a series alike this one.
