    Chapter 98 is out now!

    University has started for me again so expect the frequency of the chapters to go down.

    Have fun reading ^^

    Chapter 97 is out now.

    Honestly, this one should have come out a bit earlier but I had to make some corrections to it. I'm honestly feeling a bit directionless after closing out the Rockhaven arc, I'll just need to get my focus back for the future chapters.

    Have fun reading ^^

    posted a message on how do youtubers play very good

    Also keep in mind that they don't upload every game they play, which makes sense since a game where you lose within the first few moments wouldn't be good content.

    Alright, Chapter 96 is out now! This is the longest chapter so far, clocking in at about 4 chapters worth of length. It's also probably the biggest infodump I have done so far... excluding the entirety of the chapters in the base. Most of the things I needed to add to the setting (but couldn't do so earlier because there was no opportunity to do it) are added now.

    Have fun reading ^^

    Here is my take on it. If someone downloads your skin from somewhere, they are not "stealing" it since you are still in possession of your skin, the only thing it may do is create more instances of it across the playerbase. If anything it's a compliment to your skin creating abilities. This isn't the usual "for exposure" argument either since that only applies if you would be getting paid for your art, which you most likely aren't since you're making the skin for yourself.

    Chapter 95 is out now! I actually wanted to post this before going on vacation but decided against it because it's the start of the revelations I promised and I didn't want a gap in my schedule while that was my latest chapter.

    Have fun reading ^^

    Right at the top of the crash report it says "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError" how much RAM have you allocated to Minecraft? Have you tried allocating more?

    posted a message on Just need some things clearing up.

    A good way to catch up on features is to read the patch notes, which can be found on the page of each update on the wiki. As for the hovering over food, there is no way to do that in vanilla but there are mods that add that sort of thing.

    Chapter 94 is out now. This one is a little shorter than usual, I probably could have fluffed it out a bit but decided against it. I may still do so in a future revision. Anyways, the next few chapters after this one will contain some grand revelations about the setting as a whole that I regret not having worked in earlier but I guess the situation just didn't allow for it. As usual, the chapter is also posted on FFDN.

    Have fun reading ^^

    New chapter after way too long. The Rockhaven story arc is really coming to a close now. The chapter will also be up on FFDN shortly.

    Have fun reading ^^

    posted a message on Are premium servers faster than cracked servers?
    Quote from Toadrunnerยป

    Your posts put me in a bad mood. Smart people are able to ask simple questions without calling someone else (a friend? Really?) an idiot or dumb.


    You do know that this statement makes you a huge hypocrite by indirectly calling OP dumb, right?


    On topic: As said above, premium servers tend to be faster because usually they are run on better hardware. Premium servers are usually intended to accept more players, which again requires better hardware.

    In the end, just switch your server to premium to show that it doesn't make a difference. If I understood correctly your cracked friends don't join either way. If they change their mind and want to join later you can switch it back if you need to. It's your privately run server that you don't profit from (unless you do?) so nobody can really tell you what to do with it.

    It had to happen at some point, this is the first ever double update, maybe even a triple update if you take the reworked OP into consideration. Chapters 91 and 92 are up now, the side stories were moved to their own dedicated post and I reformated the OP a bit. That's that I guess.

    Have fun reading ^^

    The happy news just reached me that the forum is not closing down. That doesn't change anything about the current arrangement though, I will continue updating the story both here and on FFDN, the links in the OP will stay up and I suppose I'll put back the Support The Story section. I might also take this opportunity to once again re-format the OP, maybe reserving it entirely for information and putting the side stories in the second post for better structuring. I'm glad that this is not the end.

    It's been a wild ride, this story came a long way from the unreadable block of text it was in the beginning. Not to mention the paragraphs and the indentation hacks. But sadly now that the forum is closing down this thread will remain forever unfinished. It's not all bad though. As I said in my previous update post, the OP now has two links, one to the continuation of the story on FanFiction.net and the other one to the Google Doc I promised.

    I'll continue posting my chapters there and in fact I already posted chapters 91 and 92. I also made sure to polish the story up once more so this version is the best it can be at this point.

    I would like to thank everyone for reading my story here and following along all those years. It's been a pleasure. I guess now it's time for one last

    Have fun reading ^^

    So, with the upcoming closure of the forum I won't be able to continue posting here. I however will put a link to a google doc into the original post. From there on I'll link to any sites where I post my story on. That way I can update any info when I need to without having to edit anything here. The link will be up in a few days, I still need to make some preparations in the meantime.
