Minecraft Multiplayer: GWJ World

Okay, should be good to go now.

Yes he is, thanks so much.

Hey guys. I got pointed to this forum because I just got Minacraft a few days ago and I would like to play it with others instead of just by myself.

Like I said, I just got it, so all I have done is download the launcher, put it on my desktop, and play; nothing else.

I am just curious as to what all I need to do in order to join; what all else I need to download, if there is something I need to do in order to get on a list so I can join the server?

Basically, I need someone to hold my hand and walk me through it because I have no idea what is going on lol

First, get orphu or liquidmantis to add you to the server's white list.
Second, start up minecraft, hit the multiplayer button and add a server. I think the server address is mc.liquidmantis.com. Then join up and enjoy.

You can also go to this Minecraft Wiki. It will tell you everything you ever wanted (and didn't) about Minecraft. It's an excellent primer and resource for the game as you explore more of the universe.

Give us your minecraft player name, and we can add you to the whitelist.

Don't forget about all the paperwork needed!

form 27B-6? Do we require those for US citizens East of the Mississippi?

No. Just those filthy "westies"

East of the Mississippi requires form 12B-4, which is significantly simpler but must be filled out in triplicate and notarized.

Well that paperwork wasn't the most fun I've had lately, but I'm all set up and will be getting on in the next half hour or so

Hey, are we generating a new world with the redstone update (new ore!)? Seems like we'd have to.

If so, should we do something different? Large biomes maybe? There are enough of us that we can actually explore to all biomes even with that turned on, and it makes the world feel more real (to me). Basically what I'm saying is that I'd like to try large biomes on the next GWJ server.

Who decides these things? Do we vote? Can I have some pie?

The redstone block is craftable not world generated so there isn't a reason to reboot unless people just want to.

Edit: Oh new ore type in nether though.

I thought that was the current snap shot, not the 1.4.7 patch? 1.4.7 patch is just bug fixes. Or so I thought.

1.5 will have new ores and things that we can only really get with new land generation.

So a world reboot is up for discussion.

Or an expansion?

The map is on the big side as it is. Much larger and renders will suffer.

OK, I laughed too hard at this

My daughter and I were cracking up too. Very funny

Oh now I totally want to make a Minecraft version of the useless box. Can a piston toggle a switch?

Apparently people have made it work by knocking the switch off the wall

Orphu, is there a place to get a back up of this world, then? My S.O. and I have been building a temple out there and if possible, I'd like to keep the map on a single player server if we do a reboot again.

I am just beginning to discover the joys of Minecraft. Anyone mind whitelisting ElysiumGWJ?

Yay; Elysium is going to be a minecraft junkie (hopefully). Don't fear the Creeper!

What hold on, Why didn't he have to sign any paperwork!?

I was looking for some help finding a lego minecraft set for the cost in the store, does anyone have this?

I can't believe this is apparently the only version of that idea...

Different song but much better video
