    posted a message on Minecraft randomly lagging really bad on new, powerful gaming pc??

    When you downloaded java 64 bit, this does not necessarily mean, than Minecraft is using the latest version you downloaded. Especially, when you use the "New Launcher", it uses its own version of Java. When editing your profile, you can choose, which Java you want to use by specifying the path to the Java executable.


    From my experience, Windows 10 PC lag more often than Windows 7 and I believe, this is due to some background cleanup tasks together with some antivirus tools slowing down Disk IO ang enerating a lot of wait fpr your CPUs. Most likely, your Minecraft logs will show some warning about ticks missing and "Can't keep up" etc.


    Keeping an eye on the task manager and the IO stats might give you a hint, whats going on.

    posted a message on [Windows 1.8.9] Libraries

    I had the same issue (which stalled MC loader for ages). I ended up, downloading https://libraries.minecraft.net/com/mojang/realms/1.7.46/realms-1.7.46.jar with firefox and replacing the partial realms-1.7.46.jar in C:\Users\Gerhard\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\libraries\com\mojang\realms\1.7.46 with the downloaded copy.


    Firefox also had a couple of failed downloads, but was able to resume the download instead of starting from scratch. So after 5 attempts, I had the full 1.1 MB package and it matched the sha checksum MC generated.

    posted a message on How do you go about playing single player survival?

    Hmm,

    first of all, try to get all the achievements from the game. Building big farms (iron, gold, wither skeleton, slime,maybe even a wood farm using a wither as lumberjack) is fun, too and can take you a while.Get decent armour and weapons and fight the ender dragon...


    If you believe, you are skilled, start with a skyblock map and complete the objectives from that.


    Another step is to add a few mods. A combination of Iron Chests, Ender Storage, Industrialcraft, Buildcraft, Aromas Mining world, Applied Energistics, Forestry, Botania can keep you busy for ages. Add Railcraft for some challenges setting up tracks and Bibliocraft, Carpenters blocks, Ye Gamol Chattels and Chisel2 to decorate your house... Add Gravestone, Millenaire and MoCreatures to populate the world a bit more and you end up with my current setup (OK, I have ChickenChunks, NEI, yalsm) am playing for a few months now.

    The goals:

    - Build a nice house or castle (mine is around 150x 150 blocks)

    - Build a farm

    - plant crops, potatoes and carrots (with automatic water based harvesting)

    - add pumpkins, melons and cocoa

    - breed some animals (cows, pigs, chickens, goats, ducks, mooshrooms)

    - build a mushroom farm

    - Set up an artificial forest containing all kind of trees

    - start with the vanilla types

    - add the IC2 rubber trees (you will need it)

    - breed all the Forestry trees (involves beekeeping)

    - set up a wood farm with a Wither as lumberjack

    - Build an iron farm (2 towers of my castle are actually containing stacked iron farms (old design)

    - Build a gold farm in the nether

    - Build a mob XP farm grinder

    - Build a blaze farm

    - Kill enderdragon and wither

    - Build an IndustrialCraft/Buildcraft ore processing facility (throw in ores, ingots coal, whatever and it crushes, purifies, smelts and crafts them into blocks)

    - Build a power station for Buildcraft and Industrialcraft (I am sucking tons of lava from the Nether, eliminating the ocean around my farms in the nether)

    - Build a AE storage network

    - Grow crystals (and speed up the growth process)

    - Build the storage and hook it up to your processing facility

    - Help some Millenaire villages to expand and grow, complete their missions

    - Have some plants from Botainia help you with your work

    posted a message on This looks totally fair....
    Nether coordinates are overworld coordinates divided by 8 for x/z and divided by 2 for y. There is an algorithm on how to determine to which portal to link to, but I would recommend having a look (using the statistics to determine directions in the nether properly), where the next land mass in the nether is. Then I would go back to the overworld and walk about 1024+ blocks into that direction and build another portal.

    On the other hand, take your usual surplus of cobblestone, craft some slabs for ceilings/floors and start building a bridge. A lot of lava around you usually means a good place for some pigman farm. Holding shift while walking helps you not to fall into lava.

    posted a message on Mining strategies?
    Quote from Hexalobular»

    If you leave 3 blocks between branches you cover a 33% larger volume while missing very few ores, you'll get more diamonds by finding more fullsized ore deposits than by worrying about finding every single solitary (or double) diamond.

    The same logic applies to tunnel height, you'll find more ore by digging three 2X1 tunnels than with one 6X1 tunnel.

    Hmm, I'll try the 2x 2 high tunnels, however, I prefer not to leave out the 1block wide, 1 block high 100 block long diamond vein, MC will generate for sure, because I am digging around it ;-)

    posted a message on Bones For Animals/Npc People
    Hmm, I have a simple mob farm (google it) and I am drowning in bones. They are produced faster than I can use up the bone meal...

    Perhaps, its a layer 8 network problem...

    posted a message on Mining strategies?
    At my base/home, I usually dig out a staircase (because its nice), a ladder and a shaft with water at the bottom until I hid bedrock. I use buckets to pick up lava and fuel my furnaces and a water bucket to create obsidian. Once, I am at bedrock level, I create a small room with enough furnaces and chests and dig a 6 high tunnel to the north and south. from those tunnels, I create brances and I leave 2 stone between the branches to guarantee, that I am not missing any ore.

    As I operate an iron farm with 3 artificial villages on top of each other, I have enough iron for a lot of buckets and a lot of trading opportunities. Together with a mob farm (which gives me experience), this allows for good enchanted diamond armor and tools (currently, I only need to create diamond pants, everything else can be traded in).

    Lava is a nice fuel for furnaces and together with hoppers, 4-5 furnaces can smelt all the ores and cobble I am producing, when mining.

    posted a message on I miss this game, but it is no longer fun.
    I have been playing this game for 2 years now. I bought it on a boring raining saturday (hey, 20 € for some entertainment for the weekend is well spent) and it got me hooked until now. Every time, it became boring, I looked for a new challenge
    - Hardcore
    - Automation/Redstone
    - Mods
    - Skyblock (Normal and Hardcore)
    - More than those 30 boring easy challenges on skyblock (a lot more possibilities on modern versions)
    - Create my own modpack
    - Set up my own (modded) server (not buying, but create my own VM and create some puppet classes to deploy MC etc...)
    - Playing REALMS with some nice people

    I have not yet reached the "My, what could I do next" phase yet, but I assume, going back to some antique games for Nostalgia for a few weeks or months would be my solution. Age of Empires (8 players), Neverwinter Nights... So many things to do

    Another suggestion: build an overworld gold farm with a lot of nether portals.

    it is not hard to make this, you just need a basic understanding of the commands being used. If you watch carefully, you can see all the needed commands in there.

    Check your firewall on the server:
    sudo iptables -L
    should give you a list of opened ports, 25565 should be one of them
    sudo netstat -nltpu
    should show you a java application listening on that same port

    Are you sure, there is a market for the service you are offering? Did you have a look at the competition? Are your prices reasonable? Is your advertising strategy targeting the right audience?

    posted a message on Minecraft Server Changes, EULA - A Brief Look
    I had some fun reading this thread and ofc, I have to give my 2 cents, too:
    * It is a parents responsibility to educate their children. If a child steals a credit card, this is theft and there are ways to prevent that and/or get compensation
    * In Germany, we have a law which entitles parents to reverse a transaction of a minor child if the value of that transaction exceeds the childs regular pocket money. If the child misuses the credit card to buy items for a few hundred dollars or more, they can get it back. Sadly, if the server operates from outside Germany, that doesn't help much.
    * Asking for donations to operate a server is free. If you get something in return for a donation which enhances your gameplay makes it a purchase.
    * Making money from operating a server is legitimate business. Actually, you are selling IP packets ...
    * Everyone is greedy, this is an age old survival instinct. Soem of us can use their mind to override instincts. So, in-game purchases work better than a monthly subscription, because most people see the $0 price tag only and don't realize what happens when they buy soemthing in game for a small amount of money (again to obtain something they want). Some server operators maximize their profit that way.
    * Allowing the market to regulate itself is a good idea, if the market is broken, external intervention is needed.
    * A discussion about some memorabilia in the background showing Lara Crofts breasts is amusing. In some cultures, this is as offending as handing fire-arms to civilians (and worse, children) is to me. (Hmm, Lara croft also has big guns...). However, we should be able to accept that there are different cultures out there.

    If someone at Mojang would ask for my opinion:
    * I would allow modders to profit from their mods the same way youtubers can profit, e.g. by showing ads, by asking for donations and even by selling their mods. A central mod list with votes could help people to pinpoint the black sheep
    * I would allow server operators to earn money via subscriptions and in-game purchases as long as they're not limiting the games functionality and you have to pay to get access to the same resources. A central server list with price information could help the market. Maybe even voting (for registered users) would be a good idea to find "good" servers

    One note aside: I am running a couple of servers (mostly web servers) for different purposes, I am making money of some and I am sponsoring others (especially web sites for non-profit organisations). For me, Minecraft is a hobby and I am willing to spend some money for having fun. Operating a Minecraft server is part of that hobby and I can pay for the server cost. If someone donates to support this, thats nice. If someone says "Thank you", thats nice, too. But I would operate the server anyways. Its just more pleasant if you get recognition.
