I'm always game for a new map. Just waiting to find that perfect combinations of mods.
Vanilla server address is: ftb.mystichorizons.Com:55522
It is the latest version, 1.8.1.
The vanilla server is Rerolled and friends only. No reason not to trust any of you as these have always gone well, so we will whitelist anyone who asks on the Direwolf20 map also without filling out the app.
The server website is http://www.mystichorizons.Com. Just keep in mind that the dw20 server has a small existing community and some of them are young, so you are subject to the rules on that server (no duping, keep all the nigger and faggot name-calling to the rerolled server).
The rerolled server is self-policed by you; getting in trouble on dw20 will not result in a ban on the rerolled side unless you piss off a lot of people here on the forums and they want you gone.

Hardcore (2-7 day ban) would be my preference.
Do you all run with the same stuff on as yogscast? Tekkit or whatever. Always had an itech to do something with that but never really got going on my own with it.
Waiting on RedPower PR6 to be released and I'll probably be tinkering around with the new FTB pack (or possibly the supposed Direwolf20 pack, depending on what it ends up containing). I've done a little dicking around with FTB so far, but I've become far too dependent on RP to play tech mods without it.
Posting again in the new forums
My idea is a cabin in the woods theme.
spoiler below if you haven't seen cabin in the woods!
I'm going to make the cave some kind of evil monster cave. maybe have a massive hand emerging from a lava pit. Just behind the walls of the cave, I'll have neat and tidy offices and control rooms.
Any other ideas for my cave map?
Here's a map I just completed. It's a vanilla but does require an HD texture pack. It is loosely based on the Lovecraft Shadows Over Innsmouth, give it a go and let me know what you think.

any server suggestions?
Some old WoW guildies started up a server last week after a few of us were talking about it, and I probably put 30 hours in already. Logged in this morning and found out the owner had given everyone admin rights, so everyone's just flying around in creative. Logged out. Looking for a new server.
I wish you could invite a small number of players to your singleplayer maps with the click of a button.
still looking for a good server

I just bought myself a cheap server specifically for Minecraft. I'm addicted...
Honestly, I'm not sure. My home connection is dynamic so the IP changing around would make it a bitch for anyone on the outside to find it. Though I'm not really sure how often it changes. It's not something I've ever paid attention too before. I'm still waiting on the server to arrive as well. My plan is for an FTB server once we get our hands on Redpower and the lack of any ability to put in server protections (fuck you bukkit) makes me a bit leery about opening it to the world as well.
I'm also interested in an MC server. Itching like mad over here. Would rather not go with a tekkit flavor though. Was fun to try for a bit but it was just too much destructive potential.
I would gladly donate $ towards one.
And Redpower2 is now out for 1.4.6 just in time for the world to end.
Before I pull the trigger, I'd like to know how many people would want to play on it, and of those that are interested, how many would be willing to donate (and how much?).
I'm looking at the following host:
send me a PM or reply in this thread if interested.
Thanks, and happy holidays!
It's be interested and willing to donate a bit, depending on the setup and addons used.
we're looking to go as vanilla as possible. no tekkit, simple vanilla multi... maybe creeper protection on structures, at least until we get a decent safe spawn zone
Bros I have your back. I will make you a server with reliable hosting and bandwidth for donations. Give me one day to build the server.
It will be tekkit (soon to be FTB) survival (unless you absolutely want creative) with live map, etc. just because it's a bit easier to maintain at this point than messing with bukkit again. Instructions will follow.
Does this game ever go on sale, I wants it. >.<
If there has ever been a game worth the money, it's Minecraft. Buy it.
Vanilla server should be up later tonite, will begin setting up basic mp server mgmt mods shortly
right now it's capped at 15 users and 1gb RAM, but that can change
send PM for server IP and whitelist
Please no Tekkit. Last server went from "hey this industry stuff is cool" to raped surface of the moon in like a week. The machine building was fine, but the magical items in EE were just over the top stupid.
The part of EE that I liked was the ability to turn cobble and other relatively useless stuff into diamonds. The items were too game-breaking
A form of lockette, certain parts of EE, portals/teleporting, some type of centralized shop/economy mod. These are some of the basic mods that I've always thought belonged in vanilla. (The emerald trading with testificates doesn't really count but it's cool.
Multiverse works with tekkit so I create a separate quarry world and link them. Lockette, essentials, worldguard, creeperheal, dynmap, etc. Definitely awaiting FTB.
The first FTB pack, Minecrack, released tonight. The DW20 pack was suppose to also be today or tomorrow and the Ultimate pack a bit later in the week.
Wait they added fireworks? I just realized how long it's been since I've played. I'd be down for playing after all this christmas shenanigans is over
I could fuck around on a Vanilla server. I've been playing a lot of FTB lately.
I play a FTB server with a group of folks from work. Stinks that the authentication for minecraft logins is down at the moment.
I've been on tekkit for a looong time. I'm going to check out this FTB
Tekkit was very fun for a while... Was crazy seeing the amazing assembly lines converting raw mats into other mats and placing them automatically within boxes. Problem with Tekkit for me, is that it completely diminished the essence of what Minecraft was about. To me, on vanilla mode at least, MC has always been about exploration, and building. The instant we start a new server, every time on vanilla at least, everyone looks for the coolest caves / mountains to build their shit in. The simplicity of vanilla is that as soon as you log on, you can keep building and exploring.
With Tekkit, while it was fun at first, it seems like over time you're spending more and more time glued to the areas where you have built your machines, and you're spending tons of time just to tinker with those machines. As someone who played casually for an hour or so, I was getting simply depressed at the thought of logging back in to try to play, because that meant always going through a time consuming routine of breaking out all my machines / tools to start mining. By the tme I felt I was set up, I'd have 30 minutes left to play. Yea, I could just go out there old school with a pick and axe, but when you saw people quarrying out huge chunks of land, what's the point? Tekkit certainly is interesting, but again, to me it's not what Minecraft is about. I consider Tekkit to be more about building shitloads of pipes and machines, whereas vanilla MC is about exploring and shaping parts of worlds.

I find it hilarious when a request for wool, ink, sand, cobblestone, or any other basic supply is asked for and I have it stocked because that is what I work with. Plus I tend not to use the diamonds or redrock I find- ironwood glows and has enchants. I got my supply just with a pick axe and bedrock tunneling.
Not trying to dismiss your argument however, as I know what you are getting at. FTB/Tekkit definitely have an aspect of exactly what you say, and after awhile you do end up automating so much that you wonder why you're playing. But the same thing always happened to me in vanilla too; I would try to build something and wonder why I was spending most of my time mining for materials instead of building. So then I'd go play creative...but we all know that gets boring too. So then I'd go play Tekkit...but that got boring eventually too. The problem with Minecraft is, and always has been, that there is no definitive end goal. You play until you get bored of it, all the time, every time. It doesn't matter what add-ons you include, what machines you build, what tasks you take away from the player (and trust me when I say that finally getting a working sorting system can be every bit as rewarding as anything else I've ever built)...eventually everyone gets bored. There is no way to stop that unless you employ a specific goal, which is actually what the FTB maps (not mod packs) strive to do. They put people together (or a solo player) with limited starting resources and see how long it takes them to complete specific goals.
I actually would suggest if you're bored with building in Minecraft that you check out an FTB challenge map. They are hard. Very, very hard. Insanely hard. Probably too hard for most of us that aren't intricately knowledgeable with all parts of the different mods. But it will at least give you a goal to work towards instead of "Well I built a sweet house, now what?" Because we've all built dozens of sweet houses by now, right?

Rerolled Vanilla SMP is up and running.
PM me for server IP *and please include your in-game name so I can add you to the whitelist*
We've only got two mod/admins, and we're part-timing it, so be gentle with the server and considerate of your neighbors.

Mcfly's boat house is open for business!
I saw that we have a /balance command. Is that for some type merchant/economy mod?
I think that's part of essentials. the command may be active, but I think its effects are not
meanwhile, don't use it!
pm me with server info plz and add to white list. username is Traak on MineCraft too
Do you feel blame? Are you mad? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XREnv...eature=related
I'm probably not going to play that much but I'd be down for some building. name is 0xzi.
I sent a PM. I've never played on an FoH server since I was always involved with others at the time. Do you guys generally do community stuff or do groups of people go out and do their own thing?
Bit of both. Ask for help and there's usually someone about willing to lend a hand.
Some one out a mangina again?
all PM'd requests for whitelist have been approved and IPs sent out.
not sure what happened with server, contacting the host to see what was going on. apparently it went down for a couple of hours while i was out.... should be good now
calm down bro.
I can get on now, but my connection is being super flakey so I'm going to wait until later to do anything I guess.
Oh lawdy, thanks for the invite and whatnot ..logged in to find the spawn totally surrounded by zombies. Little shits.
Any chance a mod can hop on real quick and enable the /back command? /home would be nice too...
vanilla survival... /home kinda defeats the purpose.. makes for no risk farming
same could be said for /back
if the majority of the server wants it, I'll consider it... but neither are what I had in mind for vanilla SMP
Any etiquette on where I can and can't build?
I prefer completely vanilla survival with no mods that really impede on that. I was even kinda meh about starting out with stone tools, heh. I know everyone has their own preferences, but those are mine.
I was told there's a place with signs to important coordinates. I'm not sure where that is, so I found a desert village with a zombie spawner at x 151, z 658. It's not a very good village, but I barricaded the villagers.
I died fairly quickly and lost those tools!
I'm building in the sky opposite direction from the spawn where most people are building. Feel free to make your own sky islands next to mine
In the area west of spawn I set up a cow farm and a wheat farm for breeding. I also have an enchanting table with 15 book cases at my base if someone wants to spend their levels.
./back would teleport you to your corpse after you died. Was more a kneejerk reaction to having explored way the hell out, found a jungle temple, sacked it, and then died to a horde of skellys losing what i thought at the time was irreplaceable loot! In the light of day, surivival would hardly be survival without risk and loss.
Server just go down?
Edit: Yikes, you didn't lose the chiseled brick did you?!?????? Server had hiccuped but it's back.
Edit2: That was fucking weird, I was digging a mineshaft down and I ended up breaking a couple silverfish blocks. Then the server crashed a few seconds later. Definitely down right now.

server is up but the host seems to be upgrading hardware and control module, so web control module is down..
i'll add anyone that requested whitelist as soon as it's back up and i'm online.
happy new year!
I like Lockette, other than that, vanilla is good for me. Not sure what nifty mods there are but I like just having basic.
I'm on the cloudline so shouldn't bother all but the tallest craziest castles
I think I see your island in the sky, looks alright so far! I'm building down on a lake not too far off from you. Making a little fishing village or harbor type place I think.
Right horrible ladder is gone, my stuff is now reachable via hell portals \o/
maybe we could set up some sort of wider transportation network down there?
The only sign I was at the lake now is the giant shadow and the wooden tile at the bottom of the lake, remove at your own risk!
all that requested whitelist have been authorized.
it seems that the server might have hiccuped a couple times today, let's hope it's due to the hardware upgrade.
I've got a service ticket in to figure out why there's a delay with the whitelisting and to diagnose the server stability.
we currently have 23 whitelisted players, and growing by a few each day, and our server is cap'd at 15 users... a service upgrade may be in order soon... let me know if you attempt to log in and are unable to due to the user cap.
I'll probably be doing a lot in the Nether. I'm about to set up a "ghetto blaze exp farm" and eventually turn it into a simple blaze exp farm but that takes a lot of work. I can also set up a transportation system.
Fire Aspect II
Bane of Arthropods IV
Want to buy/trade for:
Someone took all my stone, so I've locked everything in my base. If you need something, propose a trade or at least leave something behind in exchange that you feel is fair (and leave a sign informing me).
Edit: Server down again.... so I didn't really get to finish everything up, but the "ghetto blaze exp farm" is at 215, 101 in the Nether. There's a chest with fire resistance potions, take one or two and fight blazes. They'll only be able to damage you via melee so you'll be relatively safe and shouldn't die unless you forget to eat or something. Bring armor and swords. I'll build a safe route to it whenever the server comes back up. Hopefully it's just a reboot or something.

I noticed 100's of unmined obsidian in your basement Reiker so I hope you didn't mind me taking 14, I will replace it if you needed it.
If you have no plans for it, I was thinking that a hell portal could go down there for easy obsidian access and then build transport in the nether around the map? What do you think?
I need epic amounts of dirt so donations are welcome
I don't care if you mine obsidian from my basement, that's just lava I've turned into obsidian so I could get to ores. I use that as a mine.
I'm working on a transport system from the central Nether portal to the blaze farm at the moment, but it's incomplete. I'm going to need a lot more stone, and I'm also going to need a ton of stone to actually complete my base. So yeah, I'm going to be mining a lot of stone but if anyone wants to donate/sell me any, that would be appreciated since it's mostly going towards public things the server can use. Once I basically get all the functional stuff I want operational, I'll just mine the world and be swimming in resources. But in the meantime, stone.
I'm going to look for a stronghold soon, how do you guys want to handle the dragon? Or should I just hold off for a while? I don't want to just go and kill the dragon myself and rob everyone else of the RL & in-game experience.
Tekkit provides a short burst of fun. A new, fresh Minecraft experience that amazes for a few days and then quickly frustrates. It requires one to be experienced with vanilla MC and somewhat tired of it. If it catches you in that period of time after you've had enough of vanilla for a while, it's priceless. But I don't see it ever captivating anyone but the most dedicated group of players for more than a week or so.
I am sure Tekkit (or FTB actually, since it's the same mods, only better) can make a return some time. Right now Vanilla just sounds much better though.
http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/dy...ect-whitelist/) I think is the one I used to use. Very easy to setup with mySQL online services (you don't need to have a SQL server running on the side or anything).
Sure it eliminates a lot of menial tasks from vanilla, but it introduces at least as many more new tasks. Once you're tired of vanilla it is definitely worth checking out. For me, at least, it breathed a whole new life into Minecraft. I was sick and tired of it and couldn't see myself building yet another "cool base" from which I did...nothing. Now I've got all kinds of crazy shit to try, and probably fail at.
The FTB launcher doesn't launch for me
Why does god hate me
First someone stole all my stone, and then someone stole all of my blaze rods after I spent hours setting up an area where you can farm your own damn blazes complete with an enchanting table.
Fuck off. Either tell me who's stealing my shit or I stop building community stuff.
Ahhh the good old days of no locked chests.
Chests can be locked, this time someone stole blaze rods out of my furnaces, since I locked all my chests after someone pilfered my stone.
Reiker, find me or digitalx in game. we'll replace what was stolen, and we'll see if we can track down who took it.
to whomever it is, for shame!
there are only 25 or so registered to the server, so let's play like a community.
**by the way, furnaces and doors can be locked too.... see tutorial here for details http://youtu.be/CVcU_ZPgF0E**

I stole brekk's dirt!
It's not so much that I care about the actual items, it's that there's obviously some untrustworthy people on this server. Stealing some resources leads to them blowing up your shit when they get bored. And [Private] signs covering everything is really ugly.
Last edited by Reiker; 01-03-2013 at 10:02 AM.
I always conceal my private signs for that very reason. Dey be ugly. I put them on the backs of chest or side etc. My OCD extends into the virtual world.
On every server we've had since the original one we've always had a steady amount of fairly low level theft/vandalism. But its always been really minor stuff and it's never been a big enough issue to really disturb the community as a whole. No one has ever escalated into full scale destruction of people's projects. That said I don't really understand it myself, its just a fun community server, I'm not really sure why anyone would go to the trouble of risking disrupting the good thing we've got going, some people just want to watch the world burn I guess.
I apologise for the really ugly staircase near the spawn, I'll take it down tomorrow. I just need it to spread grass to my castle, I already lured several sheep and cows up it.
I did take the livestock from the farms near spawn but I've rebreeded them to replace what has gone. I also "borrowed" some spare wheat and seeds of various types from the farms near spawn to replant in my base, I'll come back with more to replace them with ASAP. Hope thats ok!
I think bonemeal on dirt now makes grass, but I could be wrong.
Whoever the fuck decided to fight pigmen at the Nether portal: fuck you. My connection is a little slow so it takes time for me to load in chunks before I can react, so now there's a bunch of angry pigmen at the portal with a bunch of my enchanted shit that just rape me before I can even react.
Whoever you are, you're a fucking dick, guy.
Edit: Nether is mostly unfucked, be careful of pigmen. Should be safe to use the main portal again.

Sounds like we need to re-break PoHate!
Edit, your stuff is in a chest below the nether gate.
