    posted a message on Trying to launch a Minecraft server for myself and a few friends

    I am having massive problems with making this server work. I am using AWS to do this, and furthermore, it is on Amazon Linux. Within the box, there is no gui, and I cannot run every command I found for Linux. I followed this tutorial as well as the next page to set it up, although I used the nano command to open the server.properties file and edit some of those. However, I cannot connect once I started up the server, even when I reset the properties to default. If I try, I get this message:


    Failed to connect to the server.


    Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.


    I tried multiple changes to the server.properties file with no luck. Furthermore, I double checked the eula file to find it does not exist. I manually created the EULA and this also didn't make a difference.


    In short, I am a noob at setting up a server, and also a noob at Linux commands, and much more so with Amazon Linux. I am wondering what I am missing that I need. Once the server is running, I know how to manage it, but setting it up is where my problem lies.


    Thanks to those who can help, as I am highly confused as to why it is failing when I followed the directions to a T and even tried temporarily allowing all connections to enter and exit the server. Nothing is working.


    EDIT: I thought I would clarify: I didn't follow the directions exactly due to updates that occurred since then. I did adjust for the updates and did things the way EC2 does them now.


    EDIT2: I figured out the problem. The address I used led to Minecraft 1.5.2 for some reason. It is fixed and functional now.

    It's Finally Here!

    BOOSTED PARKOUR!

    About a month ago, I started on this map. The building took a week, but I just finally got someone to test out other parts so that I can iron out the problems and test the things I designed to not effect myself (to allow for updating the map, primarily).

    As the images at the bottom will tell you, the concept is simple. You start out with jump boost 2, then you get an exponential increase in your jump boost until you reach 100 at the final level. No matter what, though, don't fall. Doing so will set you back in most cases. Also mentioned is how I tested every jump. They are all possible.

    I wanted to thank you all for taking a look, and the following link will send you to whichever version you wish to play. Of course, at the time of posting I only have one version, but I figure that I missed something and will need to update the map to fix it.

    Anyways, here you go:

    Did you really read all that or did you jump down here for the download? Either way, I suppose you can have it.

    Hey, I just got to the part last vid where on the black wool, there are two chests,


    one meant for mob drops and one for other items,

    and I ended up using the hint book to find that the redstone dust belonged in the incorrect chest. Witches drop that.

    posted a message on My Minecraft Arena

    Instead of posting images, I think I'll let this do the talking:



    Essentially, I have made a minecraft arena, and I am ready to release the full map. If you do not arrive where you should, then teleport to 0 3 0 and it should put you into the center of the arena (apologies if it doesn't. I cannot remember if I set the world spawn/mcedit'ed it to where it should be). Anyways, this arena will be able to be used to your heart's content, and you can summon custom command bosses, take on modded enemies, or even take on the wither in this arena. I designed it to be indestructible (I hope, at least short of someone downloading it and destroying it).


    Anyways, let's go onto what I am sure many people are here for: the arena!


    Arena with particles: http://adf.ly/1NYb0U


    Arena without particles: http://adf.ly/1NYbNB


    NOTE: the arena with particles has 20 particles being made per tick, or 400 per second. If your computer cannot handle it, then go for the version without particles.

    Thank you for playing my map, both of you! Pyroki, thank you for posting a let's play and just so you know, your intro was great! And UnlikelyWaffle, thanks for the advice/comment! You two are great, and have awesome youtube channels.


    Well, if the map didn't interest me I wouldn't have done a let's play, but honestly it had some pretty good puzzles in there. Thanks for the compliment for my channel btw, and if you update this map, please tell me, as I wouldn't mind doing an updated version (even if i may or may not record it).

    I forgot to post the second part here, silly me! Here's part II, and the finish of this map (sorry for breaking some rules during it btw... the first one i was messing around and the rest was for personal convenience, such as dying and spawning back at the start, and killing all the entities that was not the:


    Wither

    at the end... he likes to go after living things, after all.)


    Anyways, here is part 2, and thanks for the fun map!

    I did this map, but it was too long I felt to upload as one video, so I split it into two during editing. Here is the first part: (I don't credit anyone in video during the first part because the signs didn't remind me who made this until the end, so I give the proper thanks as well as a couple critiques at the end of the second part, which I'll upload tomorrow.

    I agree here. Just a pic or two would make so many more people willing to test it out.

    I made it to intersection 4 after concluding that it would be impossible to get the next wool I was looking at.

    Alright, I got the next vid up. I will continue on the Cyan wool, and with this one I am closer to done.


    Note to dynomation4: I also (spoiler alert to others) have found a couple holes in the map. Not exactly like "it doesn't work", but more of holes in the ceiling (and one in a wall). I think this is prob where you have entered and exited while testing/editing parts of the map, but I am just letting you know.


    Anyways, here it is:

    I felt like I missed stuff. The hint said that supplies were hidden in the room that absorbs water, and the map looked like (to me) it wanted an apple. As such, half this vid (if not all) is making sure I got everything... EPIC FAIL!

    I finished the netherrack section... and of course, like a few other puzzles, I had to do the opposite of my first guess to get it right. Nice job.

    I forgot to post the second part of soul sand when I uploaded it, but I did that as well as the first part of netherrack (and honestly the second part as well bc it took so long). Both links are below.

    Note: ignore my raging at you... I enjoyed them in the end.


    nvm, I posted the second soul sand part.

    And another part down. I finished the soul sand area, and I plan to do the netherrack part next episode... hopefully it won't be a 2 parter again.
