    What? Don't tell me you hate people who agree with enemies. That's just plain childish. O.o

    EDIT: I just realized I got 1k posts two posts ago. Going to trace what my 1000th post was, and edit it. Just for the sake of memory.

    Haha, nah. You're right, that would be pretty immature.

    I told you to wait just a sec, because his response to my question could determine whether or not he's lying. :smile.gif:

    And you traced that, yes?

    Tell me then. Who incinerated the first tower, Inno's? The large one next to spawn?

    Quote from Sweet Ride »

    I must say, this is true. Fire is just a block with different abilities. The ability to spread, destroy blocks, hurt players, etc. Just as gravel and sand have the ability to fall.

    Wait one second. :smile.gif:

    Mattzey had flymod, which does nit require op status.
    And as for long statement, the server keeps a log of blocks placed etc, we found that calamity lit the town.

    No offense, but it is obvious you are a bit of a newbie, or just do not understand the inner workings of a server.


    Flymod. Yes, how about that flymod?

    For the fourth time, you cannot trace who started a fire. A fire in Minecraft is not a block, it is an entity. You, of all people who obviously knows the 'inner workings' of a server should know this. You cannot trace who created an entity on the server. Doing that would be like trying to find out who spawned a creeper. You just can't do it. And if you're going to try and BS your way out of this some more and say "well we can detect who lit the fire by which blocks were destroyed," wrong again. The fire itself destroys blocks, and Minecraft does not keep a record of who's fires burned which blocks.

    That would be just silly. But you already knew that, because you know the inner workings of a server.

    Lava bucket was a regular member... most zombies were natural, the ones that weren't were not jokes. There is not a single mod, mattzey was demoted far earlier than your time, you already know most of ths. So, you are driving away traffic believe it or not. Also, your friend calamity blue was the griefer, we checked logs.You also stole from people, which was against the democratic rules.

    Gods are meant to make game more interesting, ei. Religion, offerings etc, like irl, but not to control server. :/


    Ooh boy, have I got a lot to say to you. I may as well speak on the behalf of the rest of your angry server as well.

    The lava bucket was definitely not a regular member, it was one of your damn mods. How else would lava get on the roof of our hollowed-out cave, and flow directly in front of the door, without us seeing the player? You and I both know that's impossible. If you're going to frame CalamityBlue for this one, you might as well give up, because he was inside when we both saw it happen.

    You and I both know you spawned upon me slimes and a ghast in an attempt to stop me in the desire to secede, and in turn, assist in this social 'experiment'. Your moderator Mattzey also spawned plenty of creepers for Calamity and I to deal with, but if you want, we can keep that little detail on the down-low.

    As for CalamityBlue being the griefer, how can you prove that? Granted, I was not associated with him until after the griefings, but you "checked the logs"? What? There's no way to check who set something on fire at a certain time in the game. You can check chat history, and who destroyed what block. Not who set what on fire at what time. That's not possible, so framing a friend of mine is out of the question now.

    And I might as well steal! Hell, everyone does. The only way to climb up the social 'ladder' in this server without looting someone is to bribe the gods with cheap rewards and other miscellaneous items or 'sacrifices' while getting free stacks of diamond hand delivered to you.

    Forget it, I'm out. I suppose I really was correct in my original post.

    What I've seen on this server is just a bunch of unprofessional griefing and mod abuse. Don't let them lie to you, the mods get plenty involved in this social experiment and they have a pretty bad tendency to intervene.

    Upon entering the server, I made a home. I began to be involved in the town, until someone burned down a rather large tower. After two more wooden structures perished, a couple of people and I decided to depart from the island. Apparently, this was not okay with the mods, and, after getting called a "ragequitter" multiple times by both other players and the moderators (or 'gods,' as they refer to themselves as), they used everything in their power to intervene in this social experiment that was designed to test how people developed a society on their own. I've had zombies and other hostile mobs spawned on me as a "joke," lava buckets poured on my house, and the main administrator of the server has spawned plenty a hostile mob on me during my time on the server, just because I broke away from the spawn town.

    Aside from the mod abuse of spawning creatures, they do hand out stacks upon stacks of resources who give them 'sacrifices.' Usually, these sacrifices are the 'bodies' of 'wanted citizens.' Unfortunately, they deem anyone they hold a personal grudge against as a 'wanted citizen.' In other words, if you spawn camp a guy the admins don't like, you get free diamond blocks. Another form of 'sacrifice' to the mods is a relatively rare item. This would normally be okay, except for the fact that there is absolutely no security in Minecraft. Hell, if I had a neutral reputation with the "gods," (which I obviously don't), I could loot someone's house, take their valuables, offer them to the gods, and get free diamonds, or any other resource I damn well please. But then again, the admins have a grudge on me for no reason at all, so that's out of the question. That's that, I guess.

    I'm not trying to drive away traffic, all I'm saying is that this isn't a social experiment, it's a controlled, tightly-monitored and ruled server that has absolutely nothing to do with a social experiment.

    posted a message on The game of Civilization[whitelisted, trueRP, achievements, STILL ALIVE, bukkit, based off of civilization V, LIVE!!!! contest a
    Minecraft Name: Anaklus
    What other RP servers have you played?: One, Cavemen2Capitalism.
    Agree to the rules, and agree that you can be banned?: Yes. 100%.
    Why should I put you on the whitelist?: Because I would be a valuable addition to any RP server, and I've always wanted to be more involved in a roleplaying server.
    Whats your definition of roleplay?: My definition of roleplay is an organized society of dedicated people who are willing to have a good time and play by the rules.

    In Character info:

    Character Name: Marcus Lycus
    Character Gender: Male
    Character Age: Aged 28
    Character Appearance: Medium-height and muscular, and a competent leader who inspires those whom he walks among.
    Character Personality: He is very thrilled to lead and has been doing so all his life - VERY strong willed, once he has his mind set to something, he will not give up. He is an active part of any community even if he isn't the leader, and works well in both political and combat situations.
    Character Fears: Spiders above all else, and the fear of drowning.
    Character Picture: N/A
    Character Roleplay Example: He approaches a corrupt leader alone, and with the support of others, overthrows him and takes his place at the throne by force. However, once he is in control, he is very reasonable and fair towards the people he leads.
    Character Family: Two brothers, one ran off into the wilderness and was never seen again, while another was killed fighting a spider (hence the fear of spiders). His mother passed away four years prior to the events of his involvement in the Game of Civilization, while his father went into war and has yet to return...
    Character Other Info: None required. :smile.gif:
    Nickname on the server?: Marcus / Lycus. (I really don't care which, either one is fine.)

    Let me know if that's enough information, hahaha.

    I'm not trying to diss this, but I do agree with some of the others.

    I dunno, it's not really an experiment. It's like filling a cup with water, then putting it in the freezer for it to freeze, then calling it an experiment, even though you know 100% that the water will freeze. It's not really an experiment if you're insinuating and expecting what the end product would be.

    I think it would be much more efficient (and would suit the title of 'experiment' better) if you had a whitelisted server with no rules, at all, and just let people roam free. Isn't that what you're going for? I'm interpreting your post as a social experiment, where you want people to organize themselves in a natural fashion, correct? Well then, make a server, and let people roam free, without rules. Completely, 100% vanilla, if you will. After a while, they'll organize themselves. Isn't that what happened in the beginning of humanity, after all? :wink.gif:

    Just saying. You've got a great idea, I just think you could be putting it to use better. :wink.gif: Good luck! Hell, if you heed that advice, i'll probably join :smile.gif:

    EDIT: Oh yeah. I should probably add in; the addition of mods or plugins would literally kill this experiment. Anything that is not in the basic code for Minecraft would ruing this entire thing. Also, mod interference. You can't have mods going around banning every single person that griefs or talks smack. You have to let it be 100% vanilla, not even mods/admins can interfere with server affairs. Unless the server goes down, of course.

    Hey all.

    So I'm chilling out in my house, it becomes night, so I decide to go to sleep. I'm rudely awakened by a zombie, so I modify the blocks around my bed (knowing that a bed bordering a block can cause monsters to spawn).

    So now, my bed is not touching a single other block, and, convinced I'm not going to be woken up, I go to sleep. Yet again, I'm awoken by a skeleton. Confused, I come here. :smile.gif:

    So here are some pics...

    Bed area:


    Closed-off entrance #1: (that area in the center of the image is a trash can with a cactus, not an entrance)


    Closed-off entrance #2:


    Can anyone be of assistance? Thanks!

    Of course. I always play on it. It's annoying as **** to turn everything down to its lowest setting and still not reach even 20 FPS. I have no choice. :sad.gif:

    If I DID have a choice, however, and I had an amazing computer (which I obviously don't), I would probably only use it when building in my base, not only because I don't need to see far if I'm inside my base, but it would also increase framerate to reduce the chances of making a mistake. I would use Normal or Far when exploring or sightseeing.
