    posted a message on Acceptable server specs?
    Yeah that's the weakness I noticed, but how much does a server hinge on upload speed? Or a better question might be; What speed would be appropriate for say 20-30 or 30-40 players?
    I understand faster upload speed is better but what is the "weight" compared to download speed or other specs, and at what point am I getting diminishing returns?

    I know that might all be hard to answer, I'm just trying to obtain whatever information I can in preparations for starting a new server. Thanks for the replies.

    posted a message on How to Port-Forward your Minecraft Server (With Pictures)
    Just a quick addition that might be worth putting in for port forwarding:

    If you need the router password and aren't sure what it is, or if default ones like "password" don't work, look on your router for a sticker. It should say either "Router passcode" or "For advanced options" or something like that (this worked for me after exhausting all other options). I wish I had had that information before I spent two+ hours reading guides and searching my routers model number.

    Edit: I see a couple people mentioned it but you might consider editing it in to first post.

    posted a message on Acceptable server specs?
    I'm thinking of running a Minecraft server on my computer, not dedicated but fairly regular scheduled uptime. I would be playing Minecraft on the same machine simultaneously quite often. I'm wondering how well you guys think it'll run and how many max players I should set it to?

    Specs:
    Processors: Intel Quad Core i7 CPU 930 @ 2.8 GHz (although 8 cores appear in device manager/task manager)
    RAM: 12 GB Triple Channel DDR3
    Video card: Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
    Hard drives: 1 TB RAID 0 (2x 500gb SATA-II, 7,200 RPM, 16MB Cache HDDs)
    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit

    Internet speeds:
    (average from three speed-test websites)
    13.39 mbps download speed
    0.94 mbps upload speed
    25 ms ping


    Thanks.

    I really really tried to do this for you, but I feel it will never look right, and I'm sorry to say I've given up. Due to the nature of Minecraft skins, it just doesn't work. For example, since all skins in MC are low-res (very pixellated), it is difficult to create curves/roundness. It can be done but it is hard, and the smaller the curve the "uglier" it will be. If you look, this character is almost all curves.
    That by itself wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for two other factors. First is her size, she is tall & skinny, which I can do nothing about in terms of proportion of a Minecraft character model. This makes her look thick and chunky (things a soup should be). Secondly her hair extends beyond her body width-ways, and is extremely long. The only way to fix the hair width/skinniness is to draw hair on the front and sides of her body, which is a poor illusion at best. Also, the hair extends past her waist, which means it has to be drawn on the back of her leg, and this looks awful when she runs. If I changed enough things about her to make it possible, it wouldn't be a recognizable representation anymore.
    All in all the character just doesn't make for a good skin in this game, and anything I made wouldn't look anywhere near good enough for my standards.



    Phew, I feel like I just wrote an essay. Anyway I would be happy to send you what I did (fully "completed" skin), but it just doesn't look right. I'm truly sorry it didn't work out, and I'd be happy to do a different skin for you if you like. You could get a more skilled skinner to try but I just don't see it working unless the game graphics/models change. Again my sincere apologies.

    I am open to requests from anyone, but this is for future reference, certain characters just don't work, so be mindful.

    Awesome Hobonoah, congratulations on being elected king! I'm going on a short holiday tomorrow and won't be online too much.

    If my village/kingdom ever finalizes I look forward to meeting with you to discuss treaties. Of course I would have to discuss with The Bloodletters as well, as it is only fair.

    See you guys later.

    Long live King Hobonoah!

    Lol mitchamaya, I love hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Particularly Slarty Bartfast and his love of the fiddly bits around fjords.

    On topic:
    Nic did fix the problem so thanks again Nic!

    I've made a pm request about starting up a treetop village, once I have permission I will start the building process. Anyone interested in helping has a shot at free housing there when it's complete (also Hobonoah with whom I'll be trading with). It will be called Yggdra (after Yggdrasil), and it will be a main tree made with raw wood, and several slightly smaller ones around it.

    As a sidenote I use a Xbox 360 controller to play and use on-screen keyboard with it so please be patient as it is slow typing.

    So, I was playing on the server for about 5 hours, enjoying myself thoroughly, everyone was very friendly. I gathered 128 raw wood (it was all floating about with no leaves so I couldn't replant it all) for a project I'd like to do. Not to mention 6 gold, 6 diamond, 10 steel, and about 43 redstone dust among other things that I had collected in the public mine. I would love to continue playing on the server and perhaps become a moderator. However, I disconnected from the server due to brief lag while digging, and I noticed the blocks were reappearing as I broke them right before. After that I cannot get into the server since it displays an error. After some research it seems my character might be inside the blocks I was digging, which reappeared and now we occupy the same space, thus there is an error. If there is any way to move me without me being online that would be awesome. I was really having a lot of fun and I had barely had a chance to "scratch the surface", so I'd love to continue. Anyway any help is appreciated greatly, thanks.

    Applying for: Moderator status, (failing that I would still like basic membership)

    As far as proving I am worthy to be a Mod, I can only give you the information and ultimately it's up to you whether you take it at face value or not. I have no experience as a mod on Minecraft, however, I am good with people and quite personable. I haven't played on an RP server on Minecraft but I RP pretty regularly in the form of D&D, which is basically the father of all RP gaming. As far as Mod powers, I would use them in moderation (pun intended) and would seek approval/council from yourself and other Mods before taking any major actions. I would never kick/ban players without firsthand knowledge or incontrovertible evidence. In the absence of real hard evidence I would discuss with Mods or differ to you. I am always willing to provide assistance when needed, and I am looking forward to helping in the creation of kingdoms, villages, and the like. Finally I cannot promise to be online every day, or for 8 hour stretches (especially at this time of year), but I will play as often as I can. I suspect about 4 hours a day, 4 days a week (which would fluctuate of course), around 2:00pm-11:00pm PST would be the usual range.
    Please PM me whenever you get the chance Thanks.
