    posted a message on What happens if you disconnect with mobs near you in a MC Realm? Will they despawn?

    In normal servers when you disconnect you are removed from the world, so mobs can't attack you. However they will stay there (unless removed because no one's been there for a while I think and the chunk gets unloaded).

    If there are plugins installed the guy can use one to keep the player "logged in" for x seconds after signing out, usually meant to prevent log out cheating in PvP. Such a plugin would leave you sitting there to get beaten on by the mobs until you died most likely.


    I'd ask the guy to stop spawning them as it is ruining players' fun and causing them to leave. If he doesn't then find a different server!

    Minecraftforum has a lot of them.

    Otherwise try Planet Minecraft. Never got anything malicious from either site.

    Just start recording before you start talking/doing stuff. Usually the program does some stuff at the beginning when you run it that it only needs to do at the beginning is my guess.

    posted a message on Read me Before Paying for a Server Host!

    Only problem with hosting it yourself is uptime. I think having the server open 24/7 is pretty important so that's why a lot of people pay.

    posted a message on Can someone help me fix my server

    Just gonna throw this out there, did you try setting the ip you are connecting to as: localhost

    That way you know the server is working but your port forwarding/firewall is faulty, or maybe you got the wrong ip.

    posted a message on Rare usernames?

    I have 2 accounts on minecraft.net because I got confused and forgot I had one already.

    One is called XH and the other is XH192. Fortunately I bought the game on XH, else I would have probably bought it again just to have the tag ingame :)

    I made the name right before alpha ended and was really happy no one took it before me.


    XH is the shortest name I've ever seen on any server, wish I had time to play more Minecraft and show it to people. But I mostly play singleplayer now, or other games. Mods are too fun.

    posted a message on Tree Farm not working?

    Pretty sure it's fine, because the grown tree will never need that space. I've put torches next to saplings before but not in tree farms and there have been no problems.

    posted a message on [Server With Ranks?]

    Don't most of the top servers have that? I suggest you to check out the servers section of the forum and pick one you like if you have not, they are reliable and many players like them.

    posted a message on Looking for a Team of experienced players willing to help set up and run a successful server

    I recommend you pay for a dedicated host. You're super super new to these forums so no one would have faith in your abilities. Basically, you're asking for a team to make a server for you. The least you could do is pay for the server!

    Also, paying gives you 24/7 uptime. You could try Realms since it's cheap and easy.

    posted a message on Would anybody bother to play a server such as this one?

    If you want to make a server like that you should be willing to shell out the money for a hosting service, because your computer will inevitably be needed for something and disrupt people's experience. People that play this kind of server will expect 24/7, no issue hosting.

    Just some words of advice.

    posted a message on Why is Minecraft such a popular game?

    To me, Minecraft is more of a platform to expand upon. There are so many uses for it that I haven't gotten bored yet.

    Quote from mc4eva»

    Yeah, OP. you can charge people to join your server, but then let me ask you this. Why would anyone want to? What makes YOUR server somehow worth paying for, compared to the thousands of other minecraft servers out there? Why do you feel your server is worth charging people for? Do you have absolutely amazing, game-altering, groundbreaking plugins that people will throw cash at just to play? If you can't answer these questions, or the answer to the last question is no, then I would suggest rethinking your plan. You might save yourself a lot of time (and possibly money(


    I agree completely with this.
    In all the time I've played Minecraft I have never heard of a paid server until now. I was done paying after I bought the game, and personally would not consider paying any money at all just to play on a server because there are very good free ones if I want to play on them.
    Some servers go halfway and give donation status or whatever, so you can pay and get some bonuses. But I don't think many servers flatly charge money for just being able to play on them.

    Coal should be fine, I had a server with 7 people on it running off a 512 mb RAM computer at one point :)

    Consider providing a template for the application?

    Server IP?

    I'm not going to be applying but just some suggestions.
