Minecraft

I'm sure this question has been answered a million times before. Of course, what minecraft question hasn't. Do any of you fine people know of a reliable place I can rent a minecraft server? I'd like to be able to play with my young cousin but it can't be on a server with other people. He is 10 and his parents are pretty nervous about him interacting in public internet space. (they don't trust you misfits)

If your internet connection is decent, and you have a nice PC, you could run a server on your own PC and use Hamachi to get him to connect.

This video is old, but the principles are sound, and the Minecraft server is freeware:

I run one for my close friends throughout the year. It's pretty simple once you set the port forwarding in your router. From there, it's just giving the other person your IP and making sure you maintain a White List of users to prevent anyone else from stumbling in to your IP (though I've never had it happen to me).

Does the White list function allow guests?

I do not believe so. But you can add and remove users from the White List quickly modifying the system text file for configuration.

I was going through some old saves, that needed to be converted from the old format to the next and found this gem. I totally forgot where I got it from, I think it was a thread on the Minecraft forums. But I took some screen caps to see if anyone would like the the save so they can go poking around the place. I think it is absolutely amazing.

Here is the link to IMGUR where I made a Gallery since i took 20 caps and didn't want to blow up the thread.

Here is the File share from Fileswap.com. It is 440 MB.

Well I guess I can post one pic.

Neat, I will be grabbing that once I get home to oogle over. I think I'll hack in a magic carpet and fly all over the place.

Hey guys. Just got this a couple days ago and I was noticing that I'm not having a ton of fun playing by myself. How exactly does multiplayer work?

Like single player; but you share a world with other people. I have made some awesome worlds with friends. We had a mass transit system to visit. We each had our own mining techniques. And we came up with some group projects like cutting off the bottom of a mountain to make a floating island... with a cascading wall of lava off one side.

There is a GWJ World. Here is the thread

Yeah man, it is really up to you. GWJ have a server up like Blondish83 posted above, but you can always open it up to LAN games as well. What I mean by this is, I have 3 accounts in the house but I have 4 people play at times too, its just they don't log in. They don't have a unique screen name but at least they can play on the same world as the one your are playing. I think making Single Player go Multiplayer was one of the coolest things Notch and the Mojang crew ever did.

Wait, you can multiplay on LAN with only 1 login??

yup just have the others play offline when they try to login, they should still see the LAN game though.

I think he is asking if they still need their own Minecraft accounts (i.e. if they need to buy the game or if they can all use his account). I have no idea what the answer to this is.

Ok I did some testing. You can have 1 non-account holder play on any given LAN world. Minecraft defaults the persons name to Player. I tried to add a second non-account and the LAN game said there is already a person with that name logged in.

So yes you can use a copy of Minecraft without logging in the launcher and play offline but still log into a LAN game. I think that is what he was talking about.

I have Minecraft on all my machines in the house which is 5 total. I have 3 accounts holders. I can have 4 people on one LAN game.

I... I think I need to lie down before I get si-BLARGHWARGHLARGHARLGLLLL

Oh merciful heaven, why would you do that!?

The better question is: "Can I force that server-side?"

Self-loathing.

That would be a great joke to play on someone who lit up before playing the game. Totally freak them out!

Yes. Yes you can.

Now to script it to do that at 1AM on the weekends.

Vomit hour?

Can I be blacklisted just so I don't mistakenly log in during this time

My jaw LITERALLY dropped when I saw that. Holy crap!

If its what I think it is, you can visit their server and see it in person. Just set your minecraft client to mc.westeroscraft.com. You can't really do anything but spectate but it looks pretty cool.

Yeah, it's the same one. It's huge.

"As a (now Ex) Member of This Server, Who helped build not just this, but many other parts of this server too. I can say that while, it is an amazing piece of work, the majority of users on this server are the worst people. They post this stuff around the internet, just to draw in new-users, and then torture them in game. The Mods are all overly Power Hungry and there is no real sense of welcoming or community, in fact, as I type this now, they are all sitting in their Teamspeak server complaining about these very articles, and bitching about the new users."
