    Default Gamers Forum Minecraft Server

    Hey all, Dakafall here.

    I would like to let you all know I have setup a Minecraft server for us to play on. It is hosted by the same company that hosts our Ventrilo, and I have been very satisfied by them so far.

    If this is popular enough, I would be willing to invest in another server once we reach full capacity on this one.

    Server Name : Gamers Forum Minecraft
    Server IP Address : 69.197.188.220
    Max Players : 20

    I have set it so monsters do not spawn, I will keep this setting for the next 30 days to allow the ones of us that do not know how to play to get settled in.

    I am currently looking for OPs to help run the server. They will help me keep an eye on things while I am away.

    If this server gets enough attention from you guys, I might setup some contests and even have rewards for the winners.

    I will be posting updates to the server in this post by editing it. It will show what mods I have uninstalled / reinstalled to give you guys an idea of what it will be like. I currently have plans to host a site for this server, that shows the players on the server, an overview of the map, and many other features.

    If you guys have any questions or comments, please post here or send me a message.

    Portal Site Check List :
    Login - DONE
    Register - DONE
    Warp Locations - DONE
    Map Overview Image - DONE
    In Game Chat Integration - NOT DONE
    Custom Theme - NOT DONE

    UPDATE 12/29/2010 :
    Installed hMod allowing commands to be used to create a better Minecraft experience.

    UPDATE 1/2/2011
    :
    Working on a portal site for the Minecraft server. Currently the website lists warp locations, allows users to register and be put into default user groups, and it shows an overview image of the map including spawn points.

    Very nice and thank you. I'll be updating the GF Servers page with the minecraft server info.

    +Rep as well.

    edit: The section is up but do you know if there is a way to make the IP connectible? I know how to do it with TS, Vent, and the Steam games, but never really played minecraft.

    It's fine either way, people will just have to copy/paste IP I guess.

    Glad this is getting some attention This really is one of the best indie games of the year, and I am almost always playing it when I am not working.

    Let me know if you guys have any suggestions or comments, I am always open.

    I might be willing to help you out via Op.

    I don't play a lot but when I do I could op the server a bit.

    OH MY GOD WE HAVE A MINECRAFT SERVER?!

    *joygasim*

    Ok, after reading the post more it sounds like this guy is paying money to host the server. He doesn't have to.

    Aizen, you listing? Most computers will have no trouble hosting the server, and now that the game is in beta there is a downloadable exe that will set itself up instantly, alls you have to do is run it and leave your computer on. If your concern is having a public server with your IP that has to be handed out and that makes you nervous, then I have a simple solution:

    No-IP is a service that allows you to resolve your IP address into an easy-to-remember URL. For those running servers, this can be very useful, since you can give your users a link like:

    Bobsawesomeserver.no-ip.com

    instead of:

    72.216.184.233 (haw haw haw this is not my ip)

    which is far easier to remember, and if your external IP is a dynamic one, you don't have to worry about telling everyone what it is every time it changes. Obviously you can change whatever you want in the first bit to your preference.

    Also, I would love op because Im getting to lazy to mine all my resources for building cool stuff and castles look better made out of stone then gravel. =P

    My minecraft account name is, of course, BobTD.
