As the last thread reached critical mass at 200 pages, I've closed it and started a new one. The original can be found here (for reference:)

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=73227.0

This thread will encompass active play in Minecraft. Feel free to discuss the game, the server and so on but keep drama / personal issues to a minimum.

SERVER UPDATE 2018/02/01:

Oooooooooooooaky. Been a while. Things. I'm real sorry guys new EMR rollout to a 16k comp hospital is NOT fun.

1) No server is not dead, its copied and moved because my server rack is up! Copying the VMDKs to my server box now, then a quick config check to be sure it's on the right port, and then fire it up. I should be able to update it to the newest version as soon as I'm back from my workout, so within 8 hours of now.

2) New IP will be KG2Sys.com:25564. Yes this is personal hosted. No you don't need to worry about impacting the network. I'll add a nice pic to the bottom or something, but YES, it is on a RAID array and backed up, because I'm not a pleb. Need someone to edit that OP.

3) Man you guys don't like hitting people up on steam if there's problems. I know I got at least a couple of ya on there.

4) I'll be attempting to upload all copies of the HLP server(s) and providing download links. This one will be a while, as those are some big files.


Old server info:

Alright, we moved.

Server IP: 167.114.118.102
Server Port: 25565
Server Version: 1.8.6 (but will soon allow 1.7.10 and 1.6.4 to join for Forge servers)

New Server Selection Menu currently has 5 servers, 3 of them active;

Creative; Gamemode 1, no special powers, lots of TP.
Survival; Gamemode 0, no special powers, lots of TP.
Hard-light; Gamemode 0, you know what it's like.
Plots; 200x200 plots, full GM1 and Worldedit powers in plot. up to 4 claimable plots and they can merge. Coming soon.
Factions; GM0 PVP. Duh. Coming soon.

Other servers that may be available Eventually™;
Tekkit 1.6.4
Custom Forge Heavy Pack Creative on 1.7.10
Custom Forge Heavy Pack Survival on 1.7.10
Custom Forge Light Pack Survival on 1.7.10
All legacy worlds, from OCN, Vert, HLP and Play, on 1.8.6, GM3 only.
Kit PVP on 1.8.6
Minigames (IE, Quake, Spleef, etc) on 1.8.6
Hardcore on 1.8.6




Chat changed. All user now default to Global chat. Global chat is shared between every active world. It follows a simple chat format;




That gives you two buttons and a name before chat.  One lets you ignore the player quickly, and the other lets you msg them quickly;




In the case of Ignore player, if the user is Staff, it will instead be /helpop. At least on the Lobby (will expand) we allow unlimited use for Nicknames and nickname colors! Some things have been removed, namely player spam. We found better ways.

New Tab system. Looks like this now;




And I made you guys your own logo since you aren't under Vert anymore;




Don't kill me, I know it's not as nice as the real HLP logo...



Also, here are links for the old world for those so inclined:

Most recent version: http://bpmulti.fsmods.net/Kyad/Gargamel/gargamel.7z (1.6 GB)

TrashMan's stripped-down version: http://www.mediafire.com/?ca28p4ydcyjqso3 (170 MB)

In other news, i've got a tekkit server running on minecraft.egzodus.com:25566

i have no clue how well or not it works so far, so instability might be around.


also, the technic launcher is failing epicly for me, at installing the tekkit stuff.
[edit]its broken due to 1.3.2 mc update, gotta wait for the downgrade patch to be punted. if anyone has the launcher working atm and can get into tekkit, do try, please.

If anyone follows Etho, or anyone else on the Mindcrack server, they just started posting videos of a new Ultra Hardcore season.

For those of you who don't what that entails, the way they play ultra hardcore is basically a free-for-all match with no regenerating health. If you lose hearts, the only way to get them back is with golden apples and other stuff with special recipes to make them harder to obtain. In the case of golden apples, 8 gold ingots are require instead of nuggets.

Anyway, just wanted to gauge the interest in such competitive play here.

No health regen seems a bit beyond most of the players here.  This isn't to say that we can't have competitive play, but it just won't be ultra hardcore.

Although, that does sound interesting to watch, thanks!

Could be on another server. I have the feeling that most players here just want to build cool stuff while having just enough difficulty to not be completely frustrating, but may indulge more hardcore gameplay in a wholly different context. I do not know if we have the resources to host yet another server though.

Basically, build cool stuff on one side, play hardcore on the other side.

A good compromise might be doing something unusual with the otherwise normal minecraft terrain, such as replacing all the water on the map with lava.  Those kind of changes add an extra element of danger without making it too difficult to build stuff.

I agree that putting players under constant threat under regular basis while they build and explore in Minecraft is probably not what we're looking for.

What I meant by my original post was occasionally hosting matches where we get to vent some of our frustrations on each other show off some of our Minecraft skills with some friendly competitive play. :nervous:

Personally, I would never be able play on server any more than temporary that's filled with lava. I would just die every minute. :P

For that kind of competative play, this particular custom map immediately comes to mind.  Sure, we could spend time building an arena beforehand.  But if we don't wish to spend time doing that, there are custom maps for this sort of thing.

From a quick look of the map, this does seem like a fun mix of building, destroying, and PvP.

Yup, I was thinking of CTM maps, too. Those would be great for people who want more than straight up PvP like ultra hardcore.

Eh . . . seems a bit much to me. Though I wouldn't mind just standard health rules on Qaz's server. I got the impression it was denuded a bit already as I couldn't starve to death but instead only went down to half hearts or thereabouts. Also I didn't get the impression that cave spiders ever poisoned me either.

That sounds exactly like vanilla easy difficulty.  Cave spiders can't poison you, and you can't completely starve to death on Easy.

Is that a server setting? Or am I doing something wrong on my end?

yes. one of them updates i dont know when allowed server difficulty switches from 0 ( peaceful) to 3 (hardest).

thing is, noone ever bothered to mention that much, so most servers had it set at 1 which is ssp's easy difficulty iirc.

Looking at the wiki, I would recommend putting it on normal difficulty. Seems like a balance of challenge and accesibility. Hard difficulty would probably put off a lot of players from playing. Still won't starve to death of course at Normal, but hard looks a little nasty.

Early explorations in pecis Tekkit server are going well, central base is established, looking rather homely for an area that will probably look like the aftermath of a 1980's Anime after a few weeks, we've struck oil, and now a pipeline pumps it back to base for refining, the only downside being it's in a different chunk to the base, so someone needs to stand next to the oil well for it to work ;)

Hopefully the well/refinery combination will provide enough fuel for our short-term quarrying requirements.

We've got basic Alchemy and EMC-based stuff up and running, so I think our next big challenge is creating a self-organizing storage area :)

So Flipside and I were just capping an oil well, when one of the steam engines went off. But explosions don't damage blocks due to an anti-creeper plugin, so the offending steam engine just kept exploding until someone managed to hit it with a pick. Weird as heck, a sustainable explosion. Someone should utilize that for energy or something
