  • Gordita gave me some TNT on the old server and I blew up some shit that will be vanishing in the coming days. It was fun. I wish I could've blew up more, I accidentally died and lost 2 of the stacks in a giant hole in the ground that used to be a Missile Silo.

  • @TheMasterDS: now ive got to go back and blow up all my tnt....didnt think of that lol

  • @zmaster

    So, this may be unrelated to minecraft, but i figured out how to stop windows 8 from opening up the metro version of chrome, it happened to me, but i managed to fix it after doing this and restarting. http://www.mytechguide.org/13360/disable-chrome-metro-windows-8/

  • @coopdegra: i'm already back on windows 7 were no weird metro stuff can hurt me.

    good to know it's possible though...that was one of the main problems I had with win 8

  • I changed my username, if I could be whitelisted again :)

    Username: Hoffafiles

  • @WhiskeyAbe: just hop on and i'll get you promoted

  • @tharig327: The server was 1.4.2 (I believe). The newest update took the game to 1.4.4 (1.4.3 included in the update) and patched many minor issues and bugs that appeared since the 1.4 update. So, until the host (Xantar) updates the server to 1.4.4, then we can not play on it.

  • Ugh, really? I expected this, but I'm still annoyed. I'll look into this when I get home from work.

    We rely on Bukkit, which may have not updated yet. There's a chance we might go vanilla temporarily. I might do a vanilla only map if I do upgrade to vanilla, let me know your preferences.

  • doesnt really seem like a huge update.....seems like it would be easier to just wait for bukkit

  • @ShadowKnight508: Yo fool, Xantar aint the host no mo'. Also yeah, let's wait on bukkit.

  • @coopdegra: Sorry...that is a bad habit of mine (messing up names associated with things). Every time I logged into the server, it says "minecraft.xantar.net". I guess that stuck in my mind and I thought of it when I was posting.

  • Update from Bukkit:

    With the news that the Minecraft 1.4.5 update will be released next week Tuesday (November 20th, 2012), we've decided to push out a developer quality build (i.e. "it compiles and runs", no guarantees) to help us get to a Beta release faster. As of this post, we've shifted development over to Minecraft 1.4.5 compatibility and now have development builds available with Minecraft 1.4.5 support. While we would love to be able to do this for every Minecraft update, the speed at which we can update is determined by the size and complexity of the update and this varies with each release.
    Please only use this build if you're familiar with the Minecraft snapshot process and would like to help us get a Beta Build out soon after Minecraft 1.4.5 is officially released. This build is COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED and if you do not know how to acquire Minecraft 1.4.5 early to use it, you should not be running it. We will be deleting any questions asking how to get this usable. If you have to ask where or how to get the development build, you should NOT be running it and posts of that nature will be deleted.
    Will plugins break with this build?
    Provided the developers of the plugins you are using are keeping up with the development of Bukkit, all your plugins should work fine. Unless we specifically have to break plugins or the plugins you are using are employing inappropriate practises, most plugins should work without needing an update whenever we put out a new release.
    What is a Developer Build?
    A Developer build is provided AS IS and COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED. You should only be running these builds if you are completely aware of how to properly make use of them. Support request of ANY KIND will be removed without warning. If you have to ask where or how to get the development build, you should NOT be running it and posts of that nature will be deleted.
    Known Issues:
    • Torch flame graphical glitch resulting in a torch's flame flickering randomly on the screen. This is a Minecraft bug that can't be fixed by Bukkit.
    • Client displays "Unable to locate sign" debug messages under certain circumstances. This is a Minecraft client change that can't be fixed by Bukkit.
  • anyone else having the server kick them every time they connect? i get on for like 2 sec and, then it kicks me. if anyone sees a bunch of stuff lying in front of my house in acadia, could you please pick it up for me...i died :(

  • @zmaster: It's not clear why it's doing that. The log files simply indicate that the client is disconnecting with an endOfStream error, which isn't very informative. I've restarted the server, but it's already supposed to be doing that nightly as long as the server is empty.

    I thought I was going to be cute and try installing a version of Bukkit for 1.4.4 but I had to downgrade because login would fail for me. Not sure that was a Bukkit issue or an issue with the MInecraft login server..

  • @tharig327: thats for saving my stuff dude

    @evil_gordita yah, it was a weird bad packet id 50 error message...everything seems to be working fine now though

  • Can I be whitelisted pleeees? in game name: RedSkyTonight

  • Wait, Minecraft 1.4.5 was released already? WTF? How did I even miss that? Bukkit has been updated, the server is now 1.4.5! Tappy Hhanksgiving!

  • Thanks, Evil.


  • So I was playing around with a texture pack earlier, and on stuff on the server looks really awesome with it. Here are a couple of my favorite screenshots:

    Castle In Vellum


    Hotel In PNO

  • This shit is crazy looking


  • @coopdegra: well so much for my tree being impressive

  • Hey everyone, I guess with the new design, People should now this server still operates 24/7, so hop on and join in the fun!

  • I joined the server and I can't do anything (literally). Helps???

  • @ScreamingFist: Hey, sorry! You caught me while I was asleep downstairs on the recliner. Naps, man. I would have asked you to sign this form here. Please go do that now. In the mean time, you can now build.

  • @evil_gordita: @ScreamingFist had already been whitlisted before the promotion system went into place, so i suggested to him that he just posted on here

  • @zmaster: Ah. I didn't remember him and he wasn't in the list.

  • so just had the option to update to 1.4.6...going to wait for bukkit to update the server?

  • Since when are the Chrome devs working on Minecraft?

  • New Bukki version released. Will update later this afternoon.
