A friend of mine set a sandbox server earlier this summer. We all got addicted for a whole month, visiting other people stuff everyday and building our own. It was pretty cool. I did not play the survival mode, and since I ran out of idea for things to build, I don't think I will.

Yeah, I've played it a bit. It gets quite boring after the first few hours pass by. Then ya start to wonder why you're even playing still.
Then for the next few days or weeks I thought about the game, start playing for an hour or so and then quit and delete the level. I've probably done this over a dozen times now.

I usually just find the first half hour to hour the funnest part of the game. Setting up where to have a house, building your weapons and armor, etc.
Then it becomes mighty boring for me.

Best thing about the game is that it gives me some pretty weird dreams.

Ryan: Yeah, the game is different if you play it alone or with friends. Alone, when I was done building my house, I was ready to call it a day. With friends it changes entirely. You visit their creations, they visit yours, you inspire each others, you build stuff together, you hide secrets and search others' secrets...

By the end of the month we had houses, 5 castles, pirate ship, a corner of the map full of video games sprites and references, a downtown area, a graveyard, a giant tree and an entire menagerie of giant animals and dinosaurs, more stuff build underground and roads, bridges and tunnels linking all our stuff. Depending how creative you and your friends are, it can be really addictive.

I've been playing it recently, the classic version though. Would be nice If someone was to setup a server somewhere so AGSers could collaborate building a world. Sounds like fun (and a tad dangerous ;D).

I got it, and I really need to stop playing because I have a certain amount of assignments due this week.

server infos now in first post....

Sadly its for the alpha version (as I can't play within a browser and the classic doesn't seem to allow any downloadable version?) and only allows 5 8 people atm. Also not sure how often I will have it online as it is on the same server as agsarchives.com and Ne)(us.

I really need a new computer because it can't handle the awesome GFX in this game... (REALLY lol).
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft
Post by: Wyz on 25 Sep 2010, 21:07
Cool!

The server for classic can be downloaded here (http://www.minecraft.net/minecraft-server.zip). I've tried it, it produces an url and can be set to private so it does not show in the server list on the Minecraft site.

Btw for people with chrome if you notice slow downs let me know, I know a fix :D

Yeah, I knew about that :).
I was talking about a downloadable client as the game just crashed my browser when trying to play it.

[edit]
Actually Classic one works ok in my browser, seems it was just the Alpha that kept messing it up :P.

To bad the classic don't have all the cool functions of the Alpha. I prefer making euqipment gathering materials etc myself to build stuff rather than have it all in my inventory allready..

I tried the free classic version online and had fun building a house under the ground. However it was kind of anoing when I got back on the server and someone had dug a hole in the ground which flood my house. Anyway I'm thinking about buying the full version as it seems alot more fun.

btw, the rollercoaster mine cart video on the homepage sold it for me!  ;D
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Evil on 28 Sep 2010, 19:12
I can't convince myself that it's worth paying for. The free builder was fun, but is there enough to do and enough inventory options that it's worth the $10?
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Darth Mandarb on 28 Sep 2010, 19:53
I've played the free-form one for a bit ... it's oddly satisfying.

I am not going to devote this much time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn2-d5a3r94) playing it ... even though that's really freakin' cool.

Evil: I have the feeling that just like Dwarf Fortress, it's the kind of game that will keep getting updated and more stuff will be added. You can always wait until there is enough stuff to worth 10 bucks.

I was playing on the multiplayer server and I... err... dug all the way to the bottom in a quest for priceless artifacts.

What I got instead was eternal damnation in a bottomless pit!

Unless I die (I'd rather not, all my precious belongings will be wasted, not that I can't gather them again) or my position is reset somehow, I won't be able to keep playing on the server. Is there anything that can be done? I go by the name Polybeef.

Also, beware of the hole near the water + lava falls.

I've been fooling around in there for a bit. I built myself a crappy house right behind leafshade's house. Even stole some stuff from his chest to aid in the making of my house.... Yes, I'm a thief.

I tried playing around with water, but it doesn't seem to work like it does in single player. Hmm..

Where is everyone?

The server program has ALOT of bugs, and will probably not work perfectly untill maybe a couple of updates from the creator. Monsters are also disabled be default and I believe they might not be killable. Seems like the animals aint at least!

Also if anyone of you ever get stuck, shout for help from an admin!
All we can do though mind is transport you to one of the other players!
We can also give you stuff but we shoul try not to use those functions too much! (I enjoy going out collecting the material needed then to craft it! :P.

For everyone who is starting out, I recommend you checking out this wiki page. Unless you want to learn how to craft everything on your own.

http://minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Crafting

Also, if that still isn't helping, check out SeaNanners YouTube videos on Minecraft. He shows you from the beginning how to mine and craft.

Kill a piggy, collect meat, cook meat in furnace, use meat.

There are also other ways to find food, but this is the easiest one.

Monsters spawn in the dark, even in tunnels you have dug yourself. Make sure you you light everywhere and not venture outside at night early on in the game.

Nah. I'll probably reset the server when the new patch is released on halloween

Post by: OneDollar on 10 Oct 2010, 18:02
When I first joined the server it kept crashing after a few minutes with Java null pointer errors. Fixed that by setting my draw distance to normal (it was far). Since then it's been perfectly stable apart from freezing on me once, which was fixed by restarting the program.

Do you always get the same error?
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Calin Leafshade on 10 Oct 2010, 19:34
I'm afraid that Minecraft Multiplayer is very buggy at the moment but as 1$ said if you set the view distance to normal (press the f key to cycle) it seems to solve 99% of the problems.

I'm hoping that the halloween patch will fix alot of those issues.

Wow that's huge, no wonder I couldn't find my humble little castle! I've managed to find it on the map though: smack bang in the centre of all the rivers and lakes on the main landmass with an almost visible giant 'S' that I built nearby to help me find it. It's actually not quite as out in the wilderness as I thought it was. Amazing how a change of perspective alters things=)

So the map is constantly generated while we play? So if someone walks in a straight line for ages we would have a very long map if we use the cartographer? If that isn't the case then I thought we could do a before and after kind of thing.

Post by: Calin Leafshade on 12 Oct 2010, 13:51
That does seem to be the case yea.

I carto'd the new map a couple of times and it does seem to be dynamic in that sense.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Darth Mandarb on 12 Oct 2010, 14:19
There is a setting in the server setup where you can limit the over-all range of the map to prevent those with wanderlust from making the map HUGE like that!

My brother plays on a server where they all decided to concentrate on a certain area (to begin with) and some guy got lost and didn't know the "/home" function so he wandered for hours and their carto-map ended up being 90mb and had this insane peninsula branching off of their main area.  None of them want to reset their server as they've spent weeks building their stuff so they're stuck with it.

Great carto!  Yes, it was me who took the unnecessarily long walk up there.  I thought it was all going in one direction, but apparently I took a 90 degree turn in there.  You can see the island up there where I built the Shrine of XII and later where I ran out of torches so started lighting trees on fire so I could see.  :)  Sorry if that caused strain on the server!

Cool to see all the sweet buildings.  I see some structures that I wish I had checked out like the big docks.

Fun!

Yikes, I had no idea that the AGScraft world so so huge! Amazing stuff, guys.  I wish I had seen half of those buildings.

It's interesting how involving the game is when you're on a server.  I tried doing the single-player and there didn't seem much point.  I really like being able to see what other people are making, and having them see the buildings I make (crappy though they might be!)

Edit:
The server seems to have lagged out on me. I can't seem to properly connect anymore. I end up in a rock and can't even move back to spawn.
And before I had to leave, it was glitching out, which is why I left in the first place.

I could delete your player file but that will make you loose everything in your inventory I believe..

Something went very wrong :(  Everything is fubar ... did we get sabotaged somehow?  1/2 of what I built is still there, but then 1/2 looks like there was a file corruption (or something).  Some things I dug out days ago are back (including torches I had used while "Digging")

It's like the current file mated with an older file or something....

Looks like some chunks have reverted to an older state. One (I think 16x16xprobably 128) area we were building last night has completely gone, yet part of a tunnel I dug is still there. Not got my hopes up of you being able to restore it though :(
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Calin Leafshade on 20 Oct 2010, 13:11
hmm everything looks as i remember it.

Sorry if you've lost stuff. I would guess that when the server fell over it stopped recording your changes to disk and only made the changes in memory.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Darth Mandarb on 20 Oct 2010, 14:37
I'm guessing this is an issue w/ the program (minecraft) itself rather than the server.  Because things were ... reverted?... to a previous state.  I had made tunnel w/ a large road leading out of my walls.  The wall where the tunnel had been carved was solid but when I climbed over the wall and headed to where the tunnel came out of the hill the road/tunnel were still there.  So I just had to do a little blastin... er ... digging to reconnect the two.

Either way I was able to get back most of what I had lost so it's not too big a deal but it was annoying that it was necessary.  I think this is probably just one of the joys of using [paying for] alpha software.

12 Hours ago the creator of Minecraft noted that "Minecraft.net is suffering a major DDOS attack".
Which seems to be the reason why AGSCraft currently has no active players and we can't seem to login!
Appearantly his ISP is looking at it now so hopefully this will be sorted!

Go here to keep updated:
http://twitter.com/notch

Also does anyone know how to snatch twitter status updates from a user onto a website? (Was thinking of adding 5 last status updates from notch on the agscraft site).
(I could probably find out quickly but I am currently heavy in work with other stuff so thought I'd ask here first :))

I have created Darthville ... There is some HOT real-estate available for those who can find it and stake their claim!  Property is available for the price of FREE and is on a first come, first serve basis!  Create your own domicile in this unique community!

There are some rules/guidelines for Darthville (duh, it's me!)

1) Do not build outside the defined plots (Plots A-L)
2) Do not build higher than two levels (attics are okay but the roof cannot be higher than the surrounding walls)
3) ONLY build on the "lettered" plots.  All other areas are zoned for city planning!
4) Sorry about this one but no basements :(  (I am planning a HUGE subterranean subway type thing eventually)
5) Pretty please don't alter the walls or other pre-built areas (add on/to, remove, digout, etc) just stick to the plots!
6) Super pretty-please don't build w/ obsidian ... if you build something I must take down I'd rather not have to spend 5 hours doing so :)

Location: AGSCraft Server, from the spawn-point just head N/E and look for the sign:
(http://www.twin-design.com/ags/graphics/darthville.png)

Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!  Stake your claim in Darthville today!!

There are community chests FULL of materials you can use for your building endeavors.  They are located on the elevated area by the aqueduct!  Just don't take the last of any one element or the community will hunt you down like Freddy Kreuger!!!  Also, don't build up there, just in the plots!! ;)

Chances are I won't be able to find Darthville before all the plots are gone since my orientation goes to hell as soon as I enter Minecraft, but i'll come and have a look. If you need to shift any dirt i'm happy to oblige.

- what is the point of the game (along with building fancy structures)?

1. go to http://minecraft.net/ , make an account here, and then you can buy the game
2. There is no point in this game other then do what you want. Single play has monsters to slay, multiplay doesnt  (yet)
3. Yes, we're editing the same world. The server is posted on the first page.

I think this doesn't matter much though 'cause the new patch, as I understand it, would require resetting the server anyway.  So all the work we've done would be lost with the patch.

On a minecraft note here... I took a walk around AGS land last night.  It's really cool what we've created there.  Very neat stuff.

Yeah I thought that was the plan but it didn't seem to happen. I like what we've got so far - Darthville is full of brilliant ideas - but I don't see that we can't make it even better next time around=)

And now for the news:

Cowboy Builders Provoke Town Council's Wrath

Darthvillians awoke to a most disturbing sight this morning when it transpired that a band of rogue builders had snuck in during the night and added their own 'improvements' to the town. Seemingly keen to see Darthville connected to the main thoroughfare, the group have extended the existing North Entrance bridge and tunnelled out the Western entrance to put Darthville's name firmly on the map.

The new addition certainly makes life easier for visitors to Darthville who, until now, had to cross fields and rivers to reach the Town, however the group clearly avoided filing the appropriate planning documentation. This reporter can't help but wonder what the Mayor's reaction will be?

Surprisingly, given the amount of earth moved, there were no witnesses to the event, however we managed to track down one member of the group - a rather scruffy looking mutt - who when questioned, said: "..me and the Wizard, you know, we just came together at the right time." And when asked if there were there any problems, he added: "Well, we had some plumbing trouble, yeah, getting round that castle, but luckily the Doctor helped us out. Always handy to have a doctor around, y'know?"

There was barely time to catch another word as he set off again, diamond shovel in hand, for the green hills beyond Darthville. Will we see the trio return or will our beloved Mayor bring the righteous power of the Sith down upon them? More news, as it happens.

When you play in a small window at the lowest resolution because the game overheats your computer, dynamite looks surprisingly like brick!  It was only later when I saw the pixels written on the side were actually letters spelling TNT. 

I found a whole bunch of it in the Darthville community chest, so I built the whole second level of my house with it.  I placed one block out of place, then used another block of the same type to remove it. Then it started smoking.  Five seconds later... BOOM.

The other night when I was playing, I started working on a decent, but small house on the beach. (Single Player)

I decided to go off and chop down some trees and unfortunately got completely lost. I must have walked the shoreline in search of my house for over an hour and still never found it.

Maybe, someday, I will be reunited with my house.  :'(

I find it very easy to know where I'm going in Minecraft. The clouds are always moving in the same direction. There are 4 directions to a block, and I usually travel in a straight-ish line with the blocks. So I never have much of a hard time finding my house. I also usually build near the spawn.

And as a bonus you can build yourself a compass with redrock and iron ingots which point to the spawn.

Okay ... Dave blowing up a bit of Darthville was funny.  But this:

(http://www.twin-design.com/ags/graphics/wtf.png)

is not.  WTF?  In case you can't tell ... somebody put TNT everywhere all throughout the place. 

Tell me we got griefed and it wasn't one of our users that did this?

I'm going through and putting water around them one-at-a-time (if you put water around TNT the blast destroys nothing).

Post by: Darth Mandarb on 28 Oct 2010, 16:46
After checking the logs and seeing that there was only one person on long enough to have laid all that TNT (you know who you are and shame on you) I spent some time removing the TNT ... then we decided to lay down our own TNT and just blow the whole thing up since we're resetting the server this weekend anyway!

Darthville is no more!

(http://www.twin-design.com/ags/graphics/solongdv.jpg)
Leaf and I survey the destruction we wrought from on high!!

I planted about 400 TNT in my castle (which the griefer didn't touch) and with one flick destroyed the entire thing (it was awesome!)

@Crimson Wizard - if you use water around the tnt the blast hurts nothing.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Vince Twelve on 28 Oct 2010, 16:58
Damn, that's some nasty stuff.  Out the griefer!  Who was it?

I blew a significant area of Arboris' garden up with some accidental TNT.  (And learned that blowing up TNT turns nearby TNT into exploding projectiles) and realized that I needed to stay way further away from other people's stuff when experimenting with the stuff.  Which is why the rest of my experiments are across a body of water from everybody else's stuff.

I erected the Garden Memorial Garden to replace Arboris' decor, so I would hope that anybody on our servers would have the same response to an accident and not do it on purpose.

I did meet one other guy on the server once who was not an AGSer and had just googled randomly for a server to go play on.  I figured as long as he wasn't a dick, he could do that.  But maybe it's time to set up a large obsidian box around the spawn point and have people teleported out by admins when they want to join.  Keep this to ourselves.

You can "whitelist" a server ... so it's only available to people on the list.

About the griefer; we checked the logs for after I was off last night and there was only one person on long enough. However ... we can't be 100% sure it was this person so I hesitate to out them until they speak up and take ownership of this.

There were two signs in the middle of Darthville (by a HUGE stack of tnt) that said "We want 64,000 diamonds or your town gets it!" and "Love XXX - The Terrorists"

This suggests [at least] two people ... but there was only one person on for an extended period of time.  While this is funny it's still pathetic.  ** shrugs ** It's just a game.  It's just sad that some people think it's okay to do things like this.

Post by: Vince Twelve on 28 Oct 2010, 18:13
Haha.  Speaking of my further experiments with TNT... I built a dirt shack across the water from DDQ's pirate ship and made the walls three layers thick, with the middle layer TNT and tons of extra tnt under the shack.  The inside of the shack had some pressure switches on the ground, which, if you stepped on them, would blow the whole thing.  Outside was a sign warning everyone not to enter.

Looking at the latest cartograph... someone entered!

Aw, man, you should use some reference points to remember your way. First of all, use global map screenshots, available on server (http://minecraft.agsarchives.com/cartography.php); then try to find most memorable places and, if there no ones, build simple ones, like columns of 3-4 blocks with torches on them.

I believe, in the new version, there are multi-type environments.  They are called "BIOMES" or something like that.  So you can go from desert to tropical to snow all in the same world.  Should be very cool I think.

Darthville 2.0 needs to straddle biomes, so the low-rent neighborhood can be constantly covered in snow, while the upscale kids bask in the sun.

I haven't been able to log in yet.  Got my update, though and the biomes look cool.  Haven't seen the nether yet.  Too bad multiplayer didn't get all fixed up yet.

Edit: Ok, started up a new world and hacked in a bunch of obsidian.  Started experimenting with gates.  Wound up making a gate in the Nether that popped me out right into a spider dungeon and died before I could get my bearings!  Awesome!

I'm coming across a glitch, and wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

When placing a block in a specific region the block is placed as normal. In about 2-3 seconds, though, it disappears. As far as I can tell it's completely gone from the game world. It's not added back to my inventory, and there are no blocks to pick up.

I've also noticed there's a sandy area near the spawning point, that doesn't allow you to grab sand.

Obviously the game is still buggy, which is why it's an alpha release, but I'm hoping someone at least has come across this before (even if they don't know a solution).

You can't build or destroy anything in a certain radius of the spawn unless you're an admin, otherwise it will just reset back to normal.

If this disappearing block thing is happening far enough away from the spawn, it's an issue with the lag. I've experienced this before and I usually just moved over to a different chunk, like 16 or so blocks away, and you can start building again. Sometimes.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Darth Mandarb on 03 Nov 2010, 04:00
I experience that all the time ... I think it's an issue with latency from playing over the 'net because it doesn't happen to me when playing single-player mode.

Why it happens more closer to the spawn point (another thing I've also noticed) I have no idea?! (edit: Ryan answered that one)

The server update is not mandatory, but you might want to update just to make sure.

This is a bugfixes only update:

* Signs on the sides of cacti no longer crash the game
* The player won’t get stuck on the top of the world in multiplayer
* Reverted mob spawning back to the old code, it was far to annoying. I have plans on what to do with this.
* Fixed the leaf particle colors
* Reduced CPU usage for monster spawning, but there’s still a lot of work to be done to reduce lag on SMP servers.
* Attempted to fix the portal dupe bug where you could exit through a different (new) one than the one you entered through.

Hurrah!

I'm waiting until the whitelist is in place before the ground-breaking of the new and improved Darthville.  That little incident put a bad taste in my mouth and it sort of makes spending that much time on something seem pointless.  So hurry up and whitelist the server!  I'm aching to make it again!!

Granted, if it was who I think it was the whitelist won't make any difference...

alright alright geez...

whitelisting implemented!

I have only whitelisted the people who's username i recognise so if someone here has a weird username that i havent encountered let me know.

The authentication server seems to be down at the moment though so you wont be able to log in ^_^

@Darth Yeah, and i'm assuming Domino's being kicked because the admins didn't recognise the name.

I notice all the names on the Official AGSCraft Website (woo!) are in lowercase - I thought those were pulled straight off the server, or did you manually type them out? It would be helpful if you could just use that list to populate the whitelist, but I guess not if they're not actually lowercase.

They are indeed taken from the server BUT to have PHP sort them properly I had to lowercase them, added a tiny bit more code and they are now still sorted and in their original state ;).

Is it possible for this thread to be moved to Popular Threads? I just don't want this to be forgotten and disappear from General Discussion.

I think the thread gets bumped plenty with all the posts, but I agree it would be good to have it in Popular Threads incase we all get sucked into MC and forget to post;-)

I haven't been on today but Notch mentioned on his blog that there's an update tomorrow:

Quote from: Notch
Here’s what’s already done for the update:

General fixes:
* players and mobs in lava or fire no longer spam sound effects
* getting hit with a higher damage while recovering from a smaller one now works as intended
* lava flows further in the Nether
* zombie pigs eventually forgives
* added support for custom texture packs
* fixed duplicate buttons when resizing screens
* zombie pigs and ghasts no longer get hurt by fire or lava
* fixed volume sliders now saving properly

Multiplayer fixes:
* hellworld=true no longer overwrites old save chunks. Player positions will still break if you switch it on a running server, though
* boats are now visible to other players
* minecarts move nicer
* fishing kinda sorta works, but needs more work
* sheep and cows look like sheep and cows now
* buckets work now
* fixed stairs being really difficult to destroy
* increased the timeout before “Took too long to log in”
* made it possible to ride carts and boats (pigs should work too..)

There are a couple of bugs left, like it not being possible to steer the boats yet, and other players not having the riding animation when riding. Fishing also works horribly poorly. Once I’ve fixed that tomorrow, I’ll release an update for both the server and the client.

"minecarts move nicer" and "made it possible to ride carts" have got my attention. If this means minecarts work in multiplayer now that would be awersome. My railroad empire is just aching to be built;-)

Not sure if the update means we have to reset the server mind, though I would welcome another fresh start tbh.

I can't connect to the server: I get disconnected with an error saying "outdated client".

Anyone else have any problems since the update?

Server's having a bad day. Bit more laggy than usual and blocks 'pop' back in before being destroyed. Also I managed to sail off the edge of the world and then had an out of body experience as I sank to my watery grave. I need counselling=S

I think the recent addition of "working" boats and mine carts has increased the instability.  I have, several times, suddenly found myself falling through the world or stuck in an endless grey while building my roller coaster.  (Which is super awesome, btw, and every one should go ride it!)

I'm over the moon that minecarts are 'workable' now. I get kicks just popping a lump of coal in the engine and seeing it power round the track=D I'm undecided whether I'll make boosters, though just the different variations are hugely appealing=)

I would love that too - battling zombies and seeing you back in the game - although it does mean I won't be able to throw myself off cliffs with abandon and go swimming in lava anymore=(

I decided to give the new server damage a try, even though you're all reporting huge issues. But the server is offline at the moment.

If you're going to have a server status on the first post, why not have a php script within the IMG tags, which echo's an Offline or Online text depending on the server status. That way you don't have to manually update the text to green or red.
I know you have the server page, just figured I'd mention it for the first post as well. :P

I gave it a try today, and holy crap. I have groups of at least a dozen mobs at once. You pretty much just have to turn around in a dark area and they'll spawn behind you.

I'm definitely going to have to make some armour! :P

Probably just my sucky internet connection, but I can't connect to the server today. It says i'm taking too long to log in. Well excuuuuse me! I am getting on a bit you know.

Also, I notice on the AGSCraft website that the list of registered players has drastically reduced - what's happened there? Are Calin et al the real terrorists like I always suspected? =P

EDIT: Logged in this time, I think. Oh crap it's night time..

you couldn't reset yourself from within the game but its possible that peder could add something to the agscraft page to allow people to reset themselves (basically just delete their profile)

That is because whenever a new world is generated the list is emptied (because the list of players is collected within the world folder) so to get back on the list the player has to join the server once after a new world is generated.

Luckely the white list doesn't have to be created over and over again each time we generate a new world :).

Yeah, I pretty much assumed it wasn't a ingame feature for admins. Oh well. The php thing would work as long as you assign a password to everyone.
Oh well, I can't see this glitch lasting any longer than a few weeks. Although he should never have released an update with as many issues as it has. What's the rush?

These commands are Minecraft commands, not server commands :P

These commands are actually done by a custom perl script.

The script monitors the chat for those commands and issues the corresponding admin commands when it finds them.
That script is also responsible for kicking non whitelisted players.

Does anyone else notice that it's nearly impossible to kill anything with the sword? I know the arrows bounce off the mobs, and then the arrows usually duplicate themselves to an insane degree.

Yea things are still a little shitty.

I'm considering turning the monsters off until they actually work properly because right now the balance is *heavily* tipped in their favour.

Notch has promised an update this week tho.. so we'll see.

Not too sound ungrateful or anything, but currently I can't do much on the server and that's a shame :P

What's the best way of getting a reset done?

And with the glitches, maybe turning the beasties off at least until the next patch is in would be worth it?

Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Calin Leafshade on 30 Nov 2010, 21:00
Unglitched you,

Just done a server update which should fix all the problems. I'll quote notch's blog post

Quote
Bug fix list:

* Swords and other weapons now deal damage properly
* Added proper hurt animations and sounds to mobs and players
* Fixed dead players logging in as invisible ghosts
* Made arrows visible and deal damage
* Hoes now produce proper seeds
* Creepers make noises and animate before exploding
* Explosions animate properly
* No more infinite free arrows
* Server logging now appends to server.log rather than overwriting it
* Buttons and levers (and a few other blocks probably, it’s a general solution) animate properly
* Fixed minecarts (and pigs!) moving twice as fast as they should when ridden.
* The join server screen now remembers the last entered ip
* Increased chunk saving frequency on the server
* Leaving sneak mode no longer triggers a million sounds
* You can now see sneaking players
* Names of sneaking players aren’t visible through walls, and are visible a much shorter distance
* Snowballs!!

Well at least he fixed the arrows and the visibility of them. But it's still pretty shoddy and you can only see it flash every few moments the server sends an update on its new location.
You'd think the guy would only send you where, and the trajectory of the arrow that was just fired, and have it seamlessly flow on our end until the server tells us where it hit something or if our end thinks it should've. That's how I'd do it anyway, but I've never played around with networking and the big ol' latency issue.

There's been a new update once again. One for server side as well.

Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Ryan Timothy B on 05 Dec 2010, 22:29
Yeah, you can fight them normally now. It's a little hard to fight them properly with the sword.. mostly due to latency issues, and secondly due to the mobs not having attack animations. So it's hard to dodge an attack that just 'happens' when you're within a certain range.

D'oh!  I was working on it, getting in a couple levels every couple of days.  Though, at the rate I was going, it would have been another 2 weeks before it was done.  Is there a way to zip up multiplayer worlds and use them as single player worlds?  That seems like it would work.  Wouldn't it?  Could we have downloads of abandoned worlds?

It was such an epic sphere... don't know what I would have done with it if it was finished, but it was still cool to look at.

And I kind of liked the challenge of having the monsters there while building (though I was always safe up in my sphere!)

Edit: For the record, I had laid somewhere around 13,000 cubes of glass so far!  (The full sphere would have been made up of over 27,000 and I was hovering close to half way)

Just as a starting point.  But maybe it would be worth exploring a bit to find a better location for a settlement first.

Some sort of a community project sounds good!

Also all previous worlds still hosted on the server can be downloaded from here:
http://minecraft.agsarchives.com/worlds/
(I am sorry but the zip files do not have the worlds subfolders in the root of the file so make sure you dont create another folder when extracting ;))

I will update this as we generate new worlds :)

To make them work you gotta extract them into the saves folder and rename the folder to "World1" (or any other number)

Phemar: It's also possible to purchase an account as gift. I'm sure you'll find a cool dude or dudette to buy you one.

Also, Minecraft will enter beta on December 20. At this point it will cost 15 bucks instead of 10 and it is also unknown if the promise that everyone who bought the game during alpha will receive updates for free will still apply to the people who purchases it during beta, so if you've been interested in this game but haven't purchased it yet (or if you want to buy accounts for your friends) now is your last chance to get the complete package for cheap.

Please put a sign near the spawn telling people not to explore all the way to Timbuktu. I'm not mad or anything, but keep in mind, I just finished my epic tower and my epic wall and my epic underground railway and I had found and explored no less than 5 epic caverns, one of which was an amazing natural... never mind. It's behind me now.
But, hey! Maybe this time with monsters will suck less than last! I think not being able to summon items with admin magic makes the game a lot better, plus, I think if we build up a nice, central fortress with a city inside, it'll be lots of fun.

Is there any kind of editor that will let you fill in chunks manually? If so then we could just have a big bedrock barrier around an the map while allowing everything inside to be randomly generated still.

Server continues to be "questionably stable".

Moria is now complete although the tunnel needs sealing properly (I might just be lazy and use cobble instead of smooth stone considering the length. There are a few air holes that I'll turn into proper entrances once I can be bothered and an entrance by Voh's spiral. Also no one go deleting those lines of cobble through the water unless you want to flood my tunnel :O

I just want to know how much stuff and work I've lost.

Also the new server update apparently fixes the bug where you could drop weapons and tools to repair them back to full health. Any chance of modding the server to allow infinite durability or adding a command to spawn tools? Certainly seems like it will be pretty annoying to be constantly losing diamond tools on larger projects.

Can I ask who has the login "Jeesus", because everytime they join, my connection to the server times out a few seconds later. I thought I was just being paranoid/stupid, but its happened six times now - the last two times, I've even been able to predict it before it happens. (Okay, I realise this does indeed sound both paranoia AND stupid - especially because I can't think of a reason why it'd happen, but its a theory I'm sticking with until I can think of something else. :P)

* Working server-side inventory! Finally! (And as a result of that, a whole pile of bugs and issues got fixed)
* Made SMP servers save chunks way less often in most cases. Chunks don’t resave if they got saved in the last 30 seconds
* Moving too far away from a container, or having it blow up, closes the inventory screen
* Fixed /kill
* Introduced leaf decay again. It acts differently from before
* You can now throw eggs
* On a whim, added super exclusive clan cloaks for Mojang Employees
* .. and something else, which is even more rare

It seems really sensitive to connection issues. It's been a bit better for me since the beta but in alpha at times it was hopeless, because I get a small percentage of packet loss on my connection, probably due to the odd wireless setup I have to be on for now.

Some have reported lowering view distance below the max helps with the disconnects. And I think it actually did for me too. Not ridding me of them completely but reduced the frequency at least.

I know everybody likes to polish this guy's (Notch) knob but I don't think this is an issue with a crappy server,  I think it's an issue with crappy software.

It's a fun little project but I think it got away from him.

I don't know ... after the griefing of Darthville I got seriously put-off of Minecraft.  Even when the server is up (green light in first post) it was still not letting me in and when it did it would drop me out constantly.  The guy needs to take some of the millions he's made and hire a team to fix the game.  Just my opinion.

Pretty much. No matter which server I've tried it's been the same, and I know my connection has a small loss percentage. It's very sensitive to those. I think the server is fine, but the game's alp-- well, in beta, so this sort of stuff is what should be on the workbench and getting fixed in the near future.

He's got a team now, and an office and stuff. He's not going it alone anymore.

And it has improved a lot since I started playing. It's in constant flux, and sometimes things get broke. Remember, it was alpha until yesterday. Now it's beta, and it's still going to be buggy.

I got faith.

That's good to know.  I realize it's in Beta, which is the only reason I'm not all "it suxxors!!", and I do hope he/them pull it together and fix the issues.

I had [way too many] hours of fun with it in the past and wouldn't mind finding that again!

I was going to get to fix up a safe zone at the spawn as soon as I got my current constructions somewhat done... First thing to do being setting up torches in a large enough radius around the spawn zone to stop monsters from being right on top of you own spawn most of the time, then thinking of something of a wall or such. But then the server died and everything.

I'm in a bit of trouble, might someone lend a hand? I suppose I am sunken into the sand near the big apartment building, there used to be a hill, and now there were a couple of small holes with water in them right next to the road in construction through there... Not sure what it ended up as, becuase the sand collapsed around me, I got an illegal stance error and disconnect, and now every time I reconnect I get the same message. So if anyone has a clue of where I might mean, could you dig a nice couple of layers off around there, might get me out of there?

It was a joke, obviously its not your fault. If you're ever buried in the earth you just lose health so I can't see being buried causing it. Can you not just teleport out or is it not letting you spawn or what?
Maybe Calin could modify your profile with a editor and reset you to the spawn (without deleting all your items).

/kill will kill you, reseting you to the spawn point.

I've read reviews of Minecraft amd it seems to be a really "cool" game, to say the least.

Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Ryan Timothy B on 11 Jan 2011, 17:05
Well unfortunately, Notch put the game into Beta and is now charging €14.95. He also decided to make it so that any update that occurs during Beta, you will receive, but once the game is considered "complete" you'll have to pay the full €20 just to get a few extra features the Beta didn't have.

It's definitely not a good business practice considering everyone who bought the game while it was in Alpha will receive ALL updates even once it reaches a completed status.

He's just being greedy and knowing that he has built quite a large fan base when it was in an Alpha state, that people will more than likely pay both fees twice. I on the other hand would not and would avoid buying the game while it's in the Beta state until it's complete.


That's like Vince asking for pre-purchase donations for Resonance and then not giving the game to those who pre-purchased, making them pay again. Obviously this isn't what Vince is doing (I hope.. hehe), but it's pretty much what Notch is doing. Only difference is that you get to play the game before it reaches a completed status.

Post by: Ishmael on 11 Jan 2011, 21:59
As far as I understood if you buy the game now you get the game and you own it through release and everything, but you no longer get any expansions or the like for free, unlike people who bought it during alpha.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server]
Post by: Ryan Timothy B on 11 Jan 2011, 22:04
Which basically means if you want to connect to a server that has the completed release server package, you won't be able to connect because you'd still be running the beta game. Forcing you to buy the completed game.

Well, I would. Can't connect at the moment, keep timing out. I'm sure it's not the fault of our server, Minecraft has been ridiculously unstable lately. It takes me hours until I can get to play and then I only stay connected for ~20 minutes usually. Apparently Notch has been shifting some things around or something.

Minecraft.net is down 99% of the time as well. I constantly have to remind myself that this is (still a semi-) indie amateur project because otherwise I'd be PISSED. :D

I think it might be my end rather than the server, but I don't understand what could be the cause of this. I've tried playing with my firewall settings etc, but it just seems like I can join the server if I am lucky. Possibly could be the client as I haven't experienced any such issue before the update, but I dunno.

Post by: Ishmael on 30 Jan 2011, 15:47
I am suggesting the server is coded somewhat badly, because it seems with even the slightest packet loss in the connection I get disconnected a lot, and sometimes it just corrupts the thing without warning. Pick any multiplayer out there, I can play it fine, connection wise. Then why not Minecraft? Because the netcode is bad. But, as said, it's beta, and there's a flaw right there that needs fixing. If it's still there in the retail release I'll start setting up a barricade to climb onto, but for now I'd just try to deal with it. I'm losing quite a heap of stuff too, mind you. I don't magically get to keep, say, a deleted character's inventory.

Might be possible to use a map editor to add some chunks of pure bedrock around the max boundry of the map.
Failing that you could definitely find a chunk editor and just delete those annoying map off-shoots completely.

I don't go on much anymore because I was getting tired of the lag and poor programming. The monsters were supposed to be cool, but they come in gigantic waves and were nearly impossible to kill in multiplayer. Whether this has been fixed since I've last been on, I don't know.

They don't come in waves, but there are a shitload of them and they do so much damage. The spiders are way too fast and nearly impossible to kill or run away from with even the slightest amount of lag. That and spiders and creepers don't despawn until like midday, which gives you like 3 minutes of building time every 10 minutes.

I don't know, I just find mobs really annoying.

I started to play again recently and, in fact, found monsters interesting. Well, I can hardly remember any other game I played in last few years that would give me such an adrenaline rush ;D (knowing you will loose all your precious items in current inventory if you die).
But then again, I would agree that the way how monsters spawn make them quite annoying; I'd prefer they come from limited number of locations rather than spawn from every dark corner.
Regarding killing them, I guess some people know this already, I found almost every monster may be easily killed with a bow. Even spiders. Useability of melee weapons is still a question though.

When I wasn't interested in playing on the server anymore, it always worked fine, of course now that I am motivated again it won't let me connect. :p

My problem with the monsters wasn't that I didn't like the thrill and danger of dying, it's just that they were bugging out - especially creepers would hardly ever die even in broad daylight meaning it was impossible for me to move out of my home without risking ruining other people's hard work in the village by having one of them explode on me.

Yeah, the creepers are definitely not good for multiplayer. I wrecked a few people's stuff and tons of my own work by inadvertently having a creeper blow it up.

If there is an option to have only zombies and maybe skeletons, I'd vote for that.. but like I said, I haven't played this in quite a while not sure if I would start again because of that.

Yeah, I really didn't mind back when a nice diamond sword and some moderate kiting would take down creepers and the sort pretty easily so long as you werent anywhere stupid. But since a bit before Beta they've just become near impossible to kill. Don't know if its because the values were lowered too much or because the net code got broken but they're really not fun to fight. Even if having adversaries does make things more interesting.

Post by: blueskirt on 08 Feb 2011, 23:02
2 weeks ago, a friend of mine invited me on his server and before I knew it I was addicted. I build houses, farm, mines, subway stations linking the spawn point to all our constructions, I managed to survive more than 12 days in a row away from the comfort of our castle, collecting exotic resources during the day and hiding in my makeshift camp at night, and I can't wait for the next updates and for the Nether to be added in multiplayer.

My problem with the monsters wasn't that I didn't like the thrill and danger of dying, it's just that they were bugging out - especially creepers would hardly ever die even in broad daylight meaning it was impossible for me to move out of my home without risking ruining other people's hard work in the village by having one of them explode on me.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. Creepers and spiders don't die in daylight. Skeletons and zombies burns, spiders become peaceful during day (unless if you provoke them, or unless they enter a shadowy area, or unless they set their sights on you during the night, in which case they'll still be hostile), creepers are always hostile and won't die with sunlight. If there is a creeper blocking your front door, it's time you build a back door, or a tower where you can shoot arrows at them.

If there are dark areas in a 70 blocks radius around you, monsters will appears in them, if they see you, they will give chase. I suggest you unite your forces and put torches in the streets, on your rooftops, in your dark alleys, in your houses, and every 8 blocks in a 70 blocks radius around your town.

It's also a good idea to have a huge cactus farm (more than 64) and trim them daily to build a huge cactus rampart around your precious stuff, so monsters that try to reach you will just stings themselves to death (watch out, spiders can climb and do high and long jumps, it's possible for them to jump above the fence). Until then, you should only go out during the day and stay in your home at night, find a Let's Play you can watch while you wait for the morning to come, or find something you can build in the safety of your house (like a communal basement) lest you provoke spiders and creepers and lure them into town.

Yeah that's all nice and good in theory :p The problem is, you are almost always alone on the server and there is a pretty huge and complex city building up. If you went through there at all during any time of the day you would CONSTANTLY make creepers explode with absolutely no way to avoid it. Again, I'd hate to ruin somebody else's hard work.

With an active server that is prepared that monsters will be turned on in X days and can put up defenses and all it's a different story.

Maybe it should be just that: like a regular, looming armageddon that everyone has to prepare for. Is the monsters on/off tied to the creation of a new world though? ie. only set when creating a new world. Or can it be toggled at any point for an existing world? Maybe switch it on for a weekend once every couple of weeks or once a month or something..

I haven't logged in since they were first introduced and were all buggy. I survived just fine in a little hut on stilts and a corridor made of glass, but it sounds like they've grown meaner since then. I'll log in again soon, if only to see what everyone's been up to.

You know what would be a fun challenge? Survival Island (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcsN3d7eKgY)

Where you start off with one tree and an island. You must be careful with your resources. Grow trees. etc.
It might not be good with this server since there's normally lots of people playing, but it would be great on a small scale, 2 to 4 people.

Haha looks like fun though :D

I think them playing horribly adds to the excitement of it all. Hell, I haven't played Minecraft in months and I want to start playing it just from watching those videos.

But yea, I'd have an insane tree, wheat and reed farm. They weren't even sneaking when they walked on their own farm land, that's how noobish they were. Then they run off the moment they see a zombie.


Also the Planetoids (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmVNMOW5pWc) one they played looked pretty fun too for a short while. It would mostly be fun because of all the cool bridges you could make between each sphere mass and the challenge of finding the right elements that you need.

Internet was down for me yesterday, so I decided to give moleman mode (aka 'fallout mode' :D) a try.

Gathered as much wood as I could, saplings, lots of sand (because I want to have the option of using glass, and you don't find much of that underground), dirt and a bit of meat. I was lucky to find a cave with coal in it, so I focused on gathering everything I wouldn't find underground. The cave also had water, so in all honesty, this was a massively lucky find. I could come up to get water when I'd need to.

Luckiest was that the entrance of the cave was grassy dirt! So I could actually build a friendly mob farm :D (as well as till the grass for seeds).

I built a staircase down some 25 blocks, and decided to build my base there. First I did was make a dirt staircase out of it, so the grass'd come down to base level.

First I built a tree farm, because I was relatively low on wood and was a little nervous about that. I started out with 6 saplings. I now have a tree farm which is ridiculously high-yield. It's twice 9x9, and the chest in the Arboreum has 5 stacks of saplings and 12 stacks of wood. It's insane.

Just building the Arboreum cost me 13 stone pickaxes. It's 11 blocks high, so large trees can (and do) grow. For the large trees with wood blocks placed weirdly, there's a ledge to stand on near the ceiling, with a bridge crossing the room.

Next I set out to build myself a nice wheat farm. Started out with 1 seed, but thankfully the return was, on average, 2:1. With those extra seeds, I now have 6 rows of 7 wheat blocks, producing nicely.

Of course, the friendly mob farm needed to be made, too.

20x20 room, 6 high, with a tree, all grass, except for a small pond. I intend to make this room even larger, and I'm also considering making it more of a natural landscape, rather than just flat grassland. I want to raise the roof of this room a lot. Hey, maybe wool dyed blue will make a nice 'sky'-y ceiling? it'd get me out of my underground blues..

After I'd completed the friendly mob farm, I filled up the stairwell to the cave entrance. I'd already made a water pool downstairs, so there was nothing up there I still needed.

When I closed off the entrance, I went to chop down some trees.

I came back into the central square of my base, looked at where the entrance used to be and I actually got a bit queasy.

I'm stuck here :(

Next up: enlarge the animal farm, then dig down and branch mine!

Haven't seen the vid as it won't open on this Apple thing, but that sounds cool. When Crimson and I found those floating islands I thought about something like that.

Also, that sounds awesome Voh. I think I would go insane without the sky though!

To be honest, it's not that bad. The problem is, however, that while expanding my Garden, I tunneled a little too high (this is one wicked high room) and suddenly the sun shone in. Frickin' sand.

SO BRIGHT.

It was actually a little uncomfortable and I plugged the holes as quickly as I could. I haven't actually set foot outside, I've just been burnt badly by the sun :')

Also, I may have been a little too enthusiastic in expanding the Garden (it's 45x40, and 20 high).

If I want to make the ceiling blue with dyed wool, I'm going to need about, oh, 28 stacks of Lapis Lazuli.

Yeah. I doubt it :P

(my alternative of using glass and water won't help much, either, since I've got 3 stacks of glass and besides the additional sand from the cave-ins, that's all I'm likely to get :')

edit: Also, clearing out a 40x45x20 room with stone pickaxes takes a LOT of work. Haharrrrr long term project.

Post by: Ryan Timothy B on 12 Feb 2011, 03:23
I actually started playing again, mostly because of those Yogscast videos. I found this gigantic cave vein and I totally burnt up 2 iron picks and have almost used up 128 torches (or more). I have no wood in my inventory. So I can't make another pick. I've been aimlessly wondering around trying to find my way home. :(

I need sunlight....


Edit: OMG, I'm out! That took me forever.. And oddly enough, once I got outside, I knew the direction of my house even though I was in the middle of a lake.

It was funny when we started it. I was the one who chopped the tree down and carelessly made picks instead of any torches. Didn't even think of how we'd see underground. We had to wait for the trees to grow again. haha

Okay update on "Survivalia":

1. Cactus farm no longer necessary, feel free to recycle the materials.
2. I converted the skeleton dungeon into a trap. Used the resulting 80 bonemeal to boost the farm up to full strength and then made a double chest full of bread.
3. Posted a sign board of rules. Make of it what you will.
4. Creeper spawned on Phemar's house... tnt was the ONLY WAY. I rebuilt it as best I could.

Not that anybody cares :P but I'm pretty sure I'm done with Minecraft. 

It has way too many problems, runs like shit on my machine (which it shouldn't), and if you post even the slightest bit of negativity on the minecraft forums (asking about the problem(s) or in ANY form of criticism) they just delete your post and ban your account/IP.  That's not how you run a "business". 

I also can't stand the hero-worship of this Notch guy.  He doesn't deserve it. 

I'd ask for my money back but I'm sure I'd never hear back from them on the request so I'm not even going to bother.

Shame really.  It's an incredible format/idea.  I'd like to see a competent developer re-create it (using a different name) so it actually works.  S/He'd make a fortune that's for sure.

That's because you didn't post two in-game screenshots, Darth!  :=


Anyway, joking aside, yes. The guy is a complete business fluke. The game does run like rubish, but it is also getting better.. Of course he prioritizes himself differently than most businesses would by adding more features rather than fixing the already broken ones. I'm not sure I'm ready to completely drop Minecraft because of it.

You should definitely check it out once it reaches the 'completed' state.

Post by: IndieBoy on 14 Feb 2011, 23:10
I really doubt it will be completed. Once the sales die, he will eventually lose interest and make it open source. Hopefully by then someone out there would have created a solid structured and stable game out of it. I really enjoy the free and openness of the game, but it will reach a limit if there isn't some form formal planning on the production of the game. He may be a business fluke, but if he hires the right people to run it then I think it will be a different story. It is pretty much an independent "WOW". Some people take it very seriously, some people are just 10 year olds and some people were expecting more from the game. I can't say for sure what the future is for the game, but right now it keeps me entertained. Maybe it is the players of the game that make the game exciting and not actually the "well thought out" design of the game, either way it isn't going to disappear for a long time.

Notch and company have announced a timetable suggesting a "final" version of the game by the end of this year.  Final, of course, being what they call done before they continue adding a whole mess of stuff to it.

They also have a second project in the works.  I don't think they'll forget Minecraft for quite a while yet.  It was the game that made Notch a multi-millionaire, and allowed them to start Mojang Specifications in a very official way.

It was working a couple of minutes ago. Then I left, restarted Minecraft and now I am getting a "Bad login" error once, and then "End of stream" every time I re-try. When I restart Minecraft it gives me "Bad login" again only once, then "End of stream". All these errors pop up as quickly as that previous error. Is this the same issue with the server just being down?

Doing a wiki search shows 2 American states, South Africa, 5 Canadian provinces and an island called Vanuatu in Vietnam, that all celebrate this odd 'Family Day'.

:P
So I want to play some good ol' survival island right now!

Peder, why don't you have the survival island server online 24/7 and have it reset the world at 8am GMT every thursday? I think that could work.

The reason is simple, to try and avoid to much workload on the server by running to servers at the same time (not sure if it actually matters or not but the original idea was to only have survival on for a few days every week to give people a break from the other server. and also it seems after some days it ends up pretty much like the normal server anyway. the last survival it did not take many days untill someone found land elsewhere, which kinda ruins the whole point of the survival island... :S :P)

It seems to run faster, but also glitches out more often. It's crashed twice in the last hour :/

Other than that, exploring a new world I generated and it seems there's a few funny glitches - nothing major, just stuff like dirt and trees appearing in mid-air, big walls of leaves appearing without trunks (I thought they might be bushes, but they weren't connected to the ground...)

At least it runs smoother :D

Oh yea, and for anyone who's interested, the new crafting recipes are as follows:

Code: [Select]
<empty> <empty> <empty>
<wool> <wool> <wool>
<planks> <planks> <planks>
= Bed

Code: [Select]
<empty> <empty> <empty>
<redstone torch> <redstone dust> <redstone torch>
<smoothstone> <smoothstone> <smoothstone>
= Delay thingy

Edit: Also, pressure plates now only require 2 blocks next to each other, meaning they can be crafted without a table.

There's also half-slabs for sandstone and wood now, crafted with three blocks next to each other.

Edit edit: Apparently there's also some new obsidian looking block, and no-one seems to quite know what it is...

Shit. It looks like AGSCraft has been the victim of some serious griefing... Basically everything made out wood is gone, there's cactii and saplings planted everywhere, windows punched out and lava flowing all around.

Pity, it was such a nice world :/

I asked for 3 days of notice because I knew that I could only at this point in time make that screen recording of the beautiful world we all spend so much time in and on.

Now some asshole, excuse the language, destroyed it all. Can we find out who was online and then ban them from the server as well as the forum (in case it is a forum member) - unless they apologize and/or explain themselves? That would probably satisfy my anger. :p

You did it? Sorry for being a little... direct... there, I just loaded up the world and got a little raged seeing everything gone that I worked hard for. In the future I think it should be etiquette to let people destroy their own stuff and only that, unless you get permission.

I also didn't realize we had backups so no harm done there after all. Sorry again for the namecalling!

No it's my bad. I was just going off the deadline and assumed the server was going to be reset in a few hours so I figured I'd take a few screenshots of it all crumbling down before the new map.
I'm uploading an album of what I had screenshotted pre-mapchangepocolypse.

Not sure how recent any backups that might of been taken are... There is a AGSCraft9 world zip in the worlds part of the website, but that one is way old... Destroying a world should allways only happen when a "day before" backup is confirmed!!!!!

Usually I have only zipped the old world folders once a new world is generated....

Hey peeps.
I've said previously that I have no intention of buying Minecraft... but I'm kind of starting to cave.
So, I was wondering if someone could give me a brief few words about what you guys are actually doing and what this AGScraft business is all about and what I'd have to do to get involved (if you want me that is).

Thanks :)

I'd say if you really wanted to know what it's about you should have a look at those survival island (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcsN3d7eKgY) videos posted earlier.

Or else just look around youtube. I like playing on peaceful though when I play online (lag makes it hard to kill monsters) so for me it's more like three dimensional pixel art!

Post by: Phemar on 04 Mar 2011, 07:23
Umm... I was playing a bit of Survival now when I woke up, and I er... may have screwed things up a bit. I was fighting that skelly spawner, and for some reason there was a creeper in the dungeon, which then proceeded to self-destruct, thereby killing the skelly spawner.
I know how important bonemeal is to Survival Island, so maybe you'd like to reset the map?

Sorry :(

I've been online the last couple of days, also always on my own. Can't connect right now either. Earlier minecraft.net went down again so the server probably needs another kickstart as it always seems to need that after the whole Minecraft goes down.

Has everyone seen the new 'woflies' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9Lp9p5yjuo) that Notch and his gang are working on?
It looks as though you can tame them with a bone or meat and they'll become your pets. They'll kill your enemies and such. They even shake the water off themselves just like a real dog.

Once they become tame, they won't despawn. I wonder what would happen in multiplayer. Would they sit and wait for you to log back on?

I literally think that Notch is either a lucasarts fan (it sorta looks like it), or it was some crazy random happenstance. I promise you I didn't make it. Or did one of you guys do it?

I think so, yes. Only Phemar has been a consistant builder on the server as far as I can see. And without monsters or any kind of village/city structures it feels a bit like "Hey build a house? Built it? Okay you're done!"

Infact that's something a lot of our maps have suffered from. If the server is restarted would any of you be up for a community-built walled city next map?

Post by: IndieBoy on 28 Apr 2011, 01:21
Well we went from one extreme to another. One stage being able to spawn blocks and have a creative server. Then to no spawning but with mobs on, making it a survival server. However, right now the mobs are off and the spawning of blocks are off so it is all very mundane.

Anybody here try FortressCraft for the Xbox360? It is similar to Minecraft, but not as good.

I purchased it today on the Indie Marketplace games. It is neat, but nowhere near as rich as Minecraft. But with enough support, the game will be added to.

I spent a little bit of time building a small house and such. Hopefully it will get better over time just like MC did.

We all know the standard textures are absolutely horrible, so if you want to spice up your game a little bit you should give this texture pack a try:

http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/376784-16x-32x-64x-128x-256x-512x19pre3-sphax-purebdcraft-aetherzipline-v093-101011/

Using the 128x version of this pack, and it suits minecraft really well. If you want the 512x version, be sure to have the 64bit java running. It uses alot of memory

I'm also using a water refelction mod, which causes Oblivion like water.

http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/542215-181-water-shader-alpha-v4d/

This one requires a little bit of manual installation, but its really simple to do (I got it to work :D).

Haven't been here for a while (and haven't played Minecraft for a while). I tried single player, liked the food bar addition. I took some time to learn how to farm (crops, wood etc) properly and found it actually may be fun.

Connected to the server just to check... and made creeper blow someone's work just near the spawn point :( sorry for that.
Is there any way to disable creepers or reduce amount of damage they do?  :-\

What do you think about monsters in multiplayer? Is it possible to deal with them without much ache? I remember arrows are great when dealing with mobs, but you need plenty. Melee weapons were pretty useless though.
I guess people should team up to protect the settlements from mobs. It may be pretty dangerous to fight alone.

Anyway, are there any plans for the game, like building the town or something like we had in the past on this server? I finally got some free time IRL so I may as well join.

As much as monsters can be annoying, and the creepers are slowly ravaging the landscape, I did ask for it, and I think the need to sleep gives a small feeling of cooperation.  :P

It seems health regeneration (with full food bar) increases chances when fighting vs monsters, at least when they are in small groups. I found it is possible to kill spiders and zombies without much problem even with an axe (or similar tool) :)

I am sorry to say this, but I experience problems when playing on this server... or maybe it is minecraft.net which is responsible?

My game client has troubles connecting even if my connection speed everywhere else is excellent. Sometimes it shows some error message, like HTTP 500 error (which, as I found, means "general server error"), "end of stream", "unexpected end of file" etc. Sometimes my client freezes completely when connecting.

Even when I am in game it drops me every 3-5 minutes even though I experience no considerable lag.

What can be done about that? Should I fix anything?

My reasoning is not that they kill players (other mobs do too, for instance I found skeleton archers more dangerous under some circumstances), but that they destroy structures.
The only value of creeper, AFAIK, is gunpowder they leave on death. Gunpowder is used for some funny stuff, like TNT and fireworks (from latest update). Don't know if that's worth it though.
Wiki also states some other mobs drop gunpowder, like Ghasts and Whitches.

A strange thing happened. I tried to make a new, zoomed out, map (http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Map_(item)#Zoom_out) using one of the existing maps #0 (the ones, precreated by Peder), and the original map 0 stopped working :-/. It shows nothing but blank paper now. I could make more maps, though, and they are working.


E: I found this in bugs section:
Quote
Duplicating a map and zooming one out will make the other map unload and appear empty. This can be fixed by reloading the world.
What does this mean: "reloading the world"?

EE: well, copying maps (from active to blank one) seem working, but zooming out a map breaks another if it displayed same area in smaller scale. At least thats what my tests show.

EEE: Not completely sure, but it appears that when all player disconnect from server, the next time map fixes. Still need to check this out more times.

I took quite a few things from the "safe house", but not from any other houses I found (pretty sure about that...). I take it chests aren't "common goods"?  :)

Post by: Crimson Wizard on 29 Jan 2013, 15:08
I was mostly worried about missing maps, there was whole stack of free maps depicting an area surrounding spawn point, and its no longer in safe house :-/. I just hope that was taken by occasional mistake rather than malicious purpose.
As for the small farm at the end of high staircase, I moved from there long ago (mostly because it lacked plain land around), so I think its public property now :).
There was not so much stuff in the safe house, and even less now. IDK if anything needed there? Not many people join this game, and those who did already seem to settle down well.

The Two Towers mining operation was established on the joint of three biomes, just above vast cave complex. Three open ravines, and at least two undeground ones are located in the vicinity. Unfathomed depths hold countless dangers and treasures.

3 posts in a row... :/

Nether coordinates:
Spoiler: ShowHide

Ryan Timothy's portal: -109, 49, 58
Swamp portal: -115, 51, -15

Nether Fortresses (approximate coords, to give general direction):
(Notice that x & y are about the same, as fortresses are "aligned" generally along Z axis, as noted in the minecraft wiki: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Nether_fortress#Trivia)
* 550, 60, 200
* 550, 60, 0
* 550, 60, -200
That's one strip I found, probably there are more, maybe even closer to portals.


E: Regarding the Nether... I haven't visited it much before, so this long travel was a completely new experience.
Unfortunately I found Nether mostly boring, and pretty annoying. Not much to look at, not much valuable things, and a lot of repeating terrain, which may be quite difficult to pass and provides little landmarks.
By the way, I think minecraftwiki overestimates the danger of Blazes (http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Blaze) (ones who drop valuable Blaze Rods). It is possible to kill lots of them near spawners by just ambushing them, as they appear, and keep slashing with sword. Or just run & strafe, if they are at a distance, until their are close enough for melee.
Title: Re: Dig in, Minecraft [AGSCraft server] BACK ONLINE!
Post by: Ghost on 15 Feb 2013, 22:00
I thought the same of the Nether (the only really worthwhile stuff there seemed to be Blazes to get an alchemy station). The beta Redstone Update introduces a couple of new materials exclusive to the Nether, and some of them are already in the current snapshots- Quartz which can be crafted into several cool new circuit items, and also a very stylish "marble" block are the most noteable. Surely makes the place a bit more important.
Unfortunately upgrading to the snapshots madethe AGS server "outdated" for me- is it planned to update it after the official Redstone Update?

I'll upgrade the server as soon as I'm able to with the bukkit mod I'm using.. The server is run by the software Multicraft, but I believe it collects new jar files from official sources and not something internal of Multicraft so I should probably have access to the latest updates when they get done..

Ok, I have my client updated. So waiting for server update now.

BTW, maybe we could, like, build a town, or a fortress somewhere? The server feels a bit lonely sometimes ;). I remember there were good times with Darthville and similar projects, where lots of people built different stuff nearby.
I could donate my 1k iron for railroads, also a lot of stone & coal was dug up.

There's a "gamerule" operator command, and "mobGriefing" parameter, that defines if mobs (such as creepers) can destroy enviroment:

If I understand this correctly, it should work without any mods. If this is right, may it be disabled? ;)

I travelled far to find DarkWater. Amazingly, he is so far, it's even beyond all the maps we made.

So, I built a new portal. Very far to the east.
Coordinates:
Overworld: x: 2750, z: -230
Nether: x: 334, y: 75, z: -18

Best way to get there through Nether is to go to old Ryan Timothy's portal, then climb one level up by the ladder, then follow signs. It's still takes some time to reach the other portal, but most of the path lies by one long straight tunnel.

It's 'jeancal'.
I think the reason is because I have a non-genuine copy of the game and you have 'online-mode=true' or something similar set in server.properties (thus refusing connections from non-genuine clients).
I've never played Minecraft and I wanted to try it out before I buy it. I heard the multiplayer is the most exciting mode. Nevermind, I'll play solo for a short time and then come back after I buy it. If it's as good as they say it should be very soon ;)
