We're at it again!


Here are the simple steps to getting online with us:

1. Get Minecraft

2. Download the 'unmanaged' Hamachi from here: https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/download.aspx (Hamachi simulates a LAN network, pretty much)

3. Once the program is running, select 'Network' and choose 'Join An Existing Network'

4. The 'Network ID' is exactly this: ProjectRP2
The Password is exactly this: 12345
You are now in our network

5. Open Minecraft, go into the Multiplayer tab and select 'Add Server'

6. Name the server whatever you would like, but put this in as the IP: 25.207.59.8

7. Add Server

8. Join

9. Don't drown


Congratulations, you're online and playing with us!

Also if anybody finds a skeleton spawner lemme know, I really want one to work my base around one.

I also recommend we work together and build an ender ender XP farm (ok I'll build it but I'll need a lot of string, iron and redstone), and the ender dragon killed (group event?)

Yesterday (October 12th, 2013), Mitch and I discovered a strange, new, already-inhabited land. We proceeded to locate the largest house in their village, claim it as our own, dismantle it, and rebuild it elsewhere for use as our home. No payment or reparations was made to the locals.

Today I realized that yesterday was Columbus Day.

There's a five user limit on the free Hamachi version, so I'll have to kick someone who isn't playing if another person wants to join. If you get kicked, just repeat steps 3 and 4 to rejoin when there's an opening.
Hopefully we'll have no more than five people wanting to play at a time, but if we do, I guess it'll have to be first come first serve.


Server switched to Peps' computer. New IP: 25.235.79.182

Nevermind, server seems confused at being moved. No time to fix.

Sev proposes:
Build Your Backstory!

Construct something that gives backstory to your character. Something that implies a previous existence, or an origin. This could be a variety of things. If your character was a mummy, for instance, you might construct a pyramid in the desert. If your character was a pirate, you might construct a pirate ship. Did your character wash up on the shore with no recollection of how they arrived? Perhaps you could build a shipwreck or a plane crash.

No deadline or anything, just curious as to whether or not we have any sort of story.

Indi grab the world file from the current server and maybe just make a new Hamatchi and server (replacing the generated world with our old world), maybe rename it to something and I think in the notepad file somewhere

***

I'll do Sev's thing later, I just need to find a skin I like XP.

***

I just need to double check the technical support from the server hosting place, if I have to have anything on my laptop, and how long I am going to buy it for (several payment options based on length), and I don't want to be paying for something that isn't getting used because I'm not the richest man in town. 
So yeah we might get a 24/7 server soon enough and it should run better, I'll just need to get the world file from Indi and the save game of each player so we won't lose any progress. (That or just the world file and everyone would have to put their inventory and armor into chests)

I think I know what I did wrong, but I didn't have time to fix it before work, and I was out of energy after work.

I'll be here to keep it running most of the time for the rest of the week, so I'll leave it on my computer for now.

New IP for now: 25.207.64.216

Entry 1:

It appears that bloody "hero" has managed to somehow banish me to some unknown land.  Why my corporal form chose to manifest itself here instead of my homeland is unknown to me at this time. 
I am still weak so I am unable to use my magic yet this place seems devoid of arcane energy, further study will be needed and more time to regain my power.

I don't know if it is because I am weakened or not but the dead here will not obey me, no matter what manner of necromancy I try and perform on them.   I will take note at the apparent resistance of these undead creatures immunity to my necromancy, for I will merely slay them with my sword. 

Not far from the shore I washed up on there was a quaint little inn built into a hill.  It was nice and cosy and for assisting them with a zombie problem I managed to secure myself some bread and a bed to rest my head on.   I mined for a time to gather material and wealth. 
***
When I asked where I could find a swamp (so I could perhaps find some manner of foul creatures to do my bidding) a local woman with red hair said she could guide me the next day as there was a swamp near her village.   A village? Good I would have souls to corrupt and steal for the Chaos Gods, but for now I play the role of a traveler, an adventurer if you will.  These people do not seem to understand what I really am or my intent, so for now I will bide my time and gather my strength. 

The woman guided me through the mountains, across a section of the ocean, and a desert.  It seemed the terrain was varied and tough here.  In the distance from the inn I could see a jungle and heard tales of savages and strange beasts, I will have to investigate at another time.

I thanked the woman for showing me the way and paid her in emeralds for her troubles before I went on my way to explore the swampland near her village.  Unfortunately it was just an ordinary swamp, little use from me, for now.   Not wishing to stay there much further, no need to have the villagers pay much attention to me, I departed for the inn again.

The next day I scouted out the area around the inn, it was mountainous and had fertile valleys.   Not far from the inn I saw a piece of real estate that would serve nicely for the location of my tower.   
It would require me to remove part of the mountain itself but I was up to the effort, after setting up a temporary base of operations in a nearby cave I began digging away the mountain itself.  I recall an incident of digging the earth between a sheep sending it to fall to its doom to its death.


(Ooc Left some things out but pretty much my backstory is that my character is a powerful evil Mage who ended up getting banished to here, and he is more or less trying to spread madness and chaos, but for now he is blending in to be low key).

We're all going to Ohio this weekend, and I'll be taking my laptop with me, and unfortunately there's no internet up there. If someone wants, I can send them the world file for someone else to host.

Do we want to start a new world on the 1.8 snapshot, or do we want to wait for the finished update?

I vote that we wait for the update, that way we don't have to worry about any potential problems that may arise during the transition from the incomplete version to the finalized version.

I'm worried about the snapshot causing problems in transition as well.

By the way, what plans did we have for Tekkit?

While I like tekkit I'm not sure if we can run it because sometimes the server has problems running Vanilla minecraft and tekkit is much more resource intensive. So my concern would be it would be so laggy that it would be practically unplayable.

I don't think there should be any transition problems because new world of the snapshot wood be generating the new stone of 1.8 because it is 1.8 just with a few minor bugs, if there is anything major Mojang quickly releases another patch to fix it, though I don't expect us to keep updating the snapshot every week when they come out, unless they for some reason change world gen which is why going from 1.6 to 1.7 messed up I think, though that could have been easily salvageable there are three strongholds in the world.  I didn't really see the stronghold but sometimes ravines or mineshafts break them, but that's fine you have two other strongholds in the world.

My friend hosts a Tekkit server that consists of multiple worlds connected via interdimensional nexus. There are a couple of minigame worlds, a survival world, and a central world which serves sort of as a testing ground/base of operations for the server host. Hamachi isn't required: connecting is as simple as entering the IP address.
