    Hey guys. So, the server has been updated to 1.7.8, but there may be a problem. Minecraft is changing how it tracks players in order to support the ability to change your name. In addition to using Bukkit, we run two groups of plugins, Multiverse and Essentials. These plugins haven't been fully updated to support the new player IDs.

    When you log in, you may find yourself starting at Spawn and your inventory have been reset. The inventories aren't completely gone, I can verify that the related files are still on the server and have all the correct data. When the plugins update, I'm hoping it will be possible to restore the original inventories.

    You know what? Planetes. The subject matter seems totally appropriate for this site. That series needs more love.

    @JeffreyGee: Not really, they just need to join at least once.

    @WolfOfOne: @coopdegra: Wait, when was this? Actually they use to talk about the server all the time when Will use to play. Even Anna (Ana?) would get on once in a while.

    I didn't think about it before, but I see how someone might miss what address you're supposed to connect to. On the other hand, if you read far enough into the post, it is spelled out right there. Yeah, I dunno. If someone has suggestions for improvements, I'll take them. Unfortunately I seem to be unable to edit the post.

    @JeffreyGee: It would be great to have a map, wouldn't it. I need to revisit that, but every time I attempt to make a map ends in failure.

    As for how zcreator got the maps to line up, apparently they changed the way maps work in the game a few updates ago. Instead of the map being centered on where you create it, the map is on a fixed grid.

    @JeffreyGee: Dude, when did you build your farm? It's been so long since you've the last time you were on for more than a few minutes, it might have been before xantar reset the map.

    Hey Tested friends! As you may or may not know, over a year ago @xantar has agreed to let me take over the Minecraft server. I am the third such person to take on such an endeavor. Those of you who have been here the longest may remember that this server was originally ran by moderator @MAGZine.

    The year 2014 is only an hour away in my time zone and what better way to celebrate than by finally upgrading the server to the latest Minecraft release. We operate on a modded server using something called Bukkit. We primarily intend to use the extra features we gain by using Bukkit for administration purposes and strive to keep as close to as vanilla an experience as possible.

    The primary game world is a Survival Multiplayer map set on Normal difficulty. If you find the teleporter hub, you will find the entrance to a separate Creative mode map where you can build wherever and whatever you want.

    So update your game clients and dig away!

    I'm new... help!

    We've got you covered. There isn't an ingame tutorial (yet), but here is some material to help you get started in game.

    1. [Wiki] Minecraft Crafting Guide - recipes for many in-game items.
    2. [Video] How to Survive your First night [in Minecraft] - gives excellent insight on the basic aspects of minecraft. Building, crafting, etc.
    3. [Text] Mind the Gap - Rock Paper Shotgun's own Minecraft guide to getting started.
    4. Customize yourself! Choose a skin or make your own.
    5. Start small. Choose a project that you can achieve, then branch out and experiment!

    Alright. I'm ready.

    Cool. You can join the server at testedminecraft.com. The server works on a light-moderation, heavy-consequence basis: if you do something that really ruins the gameplay for other players, you can be handed a lengthy account ban on the server. Offenses and account suspensions on the Minecraft server are in no way affiliated, linked or related to your Tested account - they're two separate entities, and you will not receive a ban on the forums for anything done on the Minecraft server.

    To get into the Minecraft server, you'll first need to register and purchase a paid account at minecraft.net. After you have done so, you can either play the the game through the browser, or download the client .exe from the Minecraft website. Please note that you'll need Java to play Minecraft. Once you have accessed the game (either through the desktop client or through your browser), you will want to click on 'Multiplayer' and type in the server address, testedminecraft.com. You must log into the server first before we can promote you.

    I can't build. Help!

    When you first join the server, you will be able to roam around and look at everything, but you cannot build. You must log onto the server first for us to be able to give you permission. To request permission to build, please visit the Tested Minecraft Signup Form..

    @heroslime: Haha, wow. That was ages ago! I wish I could say it did something amazing like "Press button and cheeseburgers happen." Unfortunately it doesn't do anything particularly spectacular. It just pops up a little debug window that to this day I have never fully implemented. Have I said that the app is unfinished?

    Since we're on the subject of the icons I've used in that screenshot, I wanted to point out that I am using a royalty-free icon pack that is available under a Creative Commons license called Fugue Icons.

    Yep. I'm going to test locally before I update the server. Currently downloading world files from the FTP server.

  • evil_gordita commented on Minecraft: Official Server Continued thread

    @zmaster: I might not wait for a recommended build, but I think I might wait out the current dev builds for a little while longer. This last update had a amazing large number of lines of code that changed and it's taken the Bukkit team this long just to get something that even compiles. I'm not sure I want to trust something that merely compiles.

    @zmaster: The secret setting was just a button that cycled through a bunch of different predefined shaders (see my screen shots from above where I created the Tested favicon out of stained glass).

    I think it's done? Well, I'm gonna open the server back up then. The white-list should be off now, let me know if you have trouble getting on, though there won't be much I can do until I can get home from work. Happy Octoberkast guys!

  • evil_gordita commented on Minecraft: Official Server Continued thread

    If you're trying to join the server and getting a "You must be white-listed" message, don't panic! I simply closed the server to public access for the time being. Here, let me explain.

    There's a world generation bug that 1.6.4 tries to fix, but it requires you to visit different parts of the world so the game can load and save back out each chunk. Because of the size of the world, it's not practical for us to walk to every corner and back. Thanks to the Bukkit forums, there's a plugin I'm using that will do the hard work of loading Every Single Chunk Ever. This process is going to be long winded and super buggy, so please be patient.

    I know there are a couple of people here who are also part of the Giant Bomb community and I'm a bit surprised this hasn't been brought up yet. This discussion seems rather timely considering Patrick Klepek had given a Ted X talk this last weekend. It's about nineteen minutes long and I think deserves a listen.
