Kissu! Kissu! Would you be interested in playing some Minecraft together?

Last time there was a server, people were a bit divided on whether it should be creative or survival, so I set up a basic hub when you first spawn in so you can choose which you'd rather play on. At any time you're free to head back and swap which world you're playing on as you see fit.

The server will be based on 1.16.5, but is mostly client agnostic. You can play on just about any version of Minecraft from the past few years, including Bedrock Edition - which includes phones, and consoles. But, if you decide to play on an older version, things will look a bit different since new blocks and items will be rendered as older blocks and items depending on what version you're on.

There is just one limitation to the server itself, however... Because it's a free server, if no one has been online for about 5 minutes, the server will automatically shutdown beyond my control. I typically have #qa open all day, so if the server goes down, either say something there, or make a post in this thread.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

SO uhh... I'm going to need instructions on what Minecraft version to download and stuff. If possible I'd like to get the version that has support for the raytracing stuff. Pirating minecraft mods isn't too difficult so I'm curious as to how it looks outside of youtube videos

File:raytracing.png (2.76 MB,1920x1038)

>>72452
the unofficial raytracing is cool but kinda difficult to play without a compatible texture pack so when using a mods it's kinda frustrating to use as blocks that should emit light don't and some modded blocks just appear as transparent despite supposedly being solid, i'm using the SEUS raytracing shaders in this pic. Over all it's pretty nice for a vanilla experience but maybe not worth the performance impact compared to other shaders, even by the same guy who does SEUS.

Yeah, (un)fortunately minecraft mods are heavily monetized and that means piracy is a thing. I should be able to find some without issue, but what Minecraft version should I be using for this server?

The server is on 1.16.5. You can join with lower versions, you just won't be able to take advantage of newer items and blocks since they'll look like older items and blocks to you.

 No.72462

The server is back up.

>>72452
Here. Download the 1.16.5 setup I made. If you have MultiMC downloaded, you can extract it into the instances folder and everything should be set up to start playing. I included the texture packs I'm using as well as a bunch of shader packs depending on your preference. There's also a few extra mods for convenience: one is for a minimap, another a world map, and one allows you to download server maps.

Well, for anyone who is still having trouble:
When you extract MultiMC, inside it's folder is one called "instances", unzip "Minecraft 1.16.5" into that folder. When you open up MultiMC, you should see an icon that says "Minecraft 1.16.5", clicking launch will start up Minecraft. If you don't see "Minecraft 1.16.5" when you start MultiMC, just make sure that the zip you extracted earlier doesn't have another folder titled "Minecraft 1.16.5" inside of it. If so, just cut and paste that folder into the instances folder.

Built the flying machine from this guy's tutorial but with honey blocks substituted for the slime blocks.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbkeQgRYwLc

Attempting to set it moving by lighting a fire with flint and steel gave me no fire (maybe because of the honey block change), but using sand works. You don't even have to waste the sand as I expected you might; it stays in the aircraft. Only problem is you don't get the delay allowing you time to get in the minecart before it starts moving. Water also works as he mentions in the video, but leaves big waterfall columns behind if you don't manage to get the water back in the bucket before the aircraft leaves it behind.

File:different-blocks.png (2.18 MB,1920x1058)

>>72645
Thanks to a generous donation of slime balls from Berun, I was able to test the machine with the two blocks on which a fire is supposed to be lit replaced by slime blocks. As a result, I've been able to confirm that the lack of burning issue is caused by the honey block change. You can light fires on top of slime blocks but not honey blocks. Unfortunately, replacing only the two blocks with slime blocks results in a nonworking vehicle. Pic related is what happens.

After some analysis of how the machine works, I'm now pretty confident that the problem is the slime blocks and honey blocks not sticking together. The basic operation of a flying machine is that the sticky piston in the back pushes the front forward, then the sticky piston in the front pulls the back forward. Honey or slime blocks being pushed/pulled by the pistons pull blocks stuck to them along with them. In this case, the failure happened in the second step, when the front attempted to pull the back forward. The honey block that the arrow is pointing to is supposed to pull the block behind it forward, but since that block is replaced by a slime block, it doesn't happen. As a result, the four circled blocks are left behind. Since these four blocks contain the piston that is supposed to push the front forward in the next step, movement halts.

I've switched the blocks back to honey, and the flying machine is now working again. So far my best method for starting the machine moving is to place a wooden slab at the point where the fire is supposed to be started and light it on fire. This consumes the slab, but wood can be regrown. I tried experimenting with other blocks in an attempt to find something that wouldn't be consumed, but it was to no avail. While you can light a fire on top of a stone or dirt block which will go out after a bit without consuming the block, the fire is one block above the region monitored by the observer and does not trigger it. In the case of the wood, it's not the fire going out that triggers the observer but the wooden block disappearing. I thought of stone slabs which take up half a block, but you cannot light fires on top of them.

My biggest issue now is that after flying for around 1 1/2 kilometers, the free server decides I've been idling too long and kicks me. Sitting in a minecart while flying protects from some lag-related glitches, but it apparently doesn't protect against disconnect. Upon reconnecting, I get put into a weird state where I'm falling from the aircraft, but there seems to be some state that thinks I'm still in the minecart, because when I press shift, it dismounts me, and I'm back in the craft. (I was able to discover this because it kicked me out over water where I survived the fall.) Unfortunately, dismounting from the minecart during flight is a good way to fall out of the aircraft for real. So I'm going to have to find something I can do while flying, something other than looking around and snapping pictures, that will make the server see me as not idle.

I was finally confident enough of the thing working to test reconfiguring the direction of the aircraft in the field rather than over home base. To ensure I'd be able to dismount even if I didn't come in 100% perfect, I expanded the platform into a pattern of glass walkways. As an unplanned bonus, the rows of lights I put up on it make it easy to tell when you're due north/south/east/west of the platform, meaning it's time to stop and turn to get home. The test worked out pretty well.

>entirely ineffectual due to your own incompetence
I mean, the server's TPS was already dogshit. Whenever I turned it on, it did have a noticable impact. And that was with 26 armorstands. Not even a respectable number (stack and a half, ha.)
Do you guys have a fuckin chunkload plugin with some laggy ass farming flying machine going every two minutes or so? The TPS goes from playable to 2b2t really, really quickly.
I guess with such a small playerbase it's not a really big longterm problem (less players resulted in a higher TPS) but I'd just do self hosting at that point. Even a shitbook can do it better than Aternos.
The only other thing that's questionable is you /tp-ing around. I don't think any other brownbricks server on the ring has a badmin that does that. Violation of the NAP subtracts 3 points (out of ten) automatically

5/10 might survive 2021. Upgrade to premium aternos and shell out the shekels or move to alt hosting for a 7/10 could be comfy. You'll just always have a tingling feeling that someone is watching...

It seems like it's just goats and everything we want was delayed again. At least they released some of the features in a fork https://launcher.mojang.com/v1/objects/622bf0fd298e1e164ecd05d866045ed5941283cf/CavesAndCliffsPreview.zip

Spigot has been released for 1.17, so now we're waiting on Paper.
https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/spigot-bungeecord-1-17.510208/

Regarding the Caves & Cliffs stuff, the Spigot people say:
>Mojang has delayed many features, including extended world heights, generation changes, and certain blocks/items to Minecraft 1.18. Although most of these features are still accessible in 1.17 through the use of either the experimental datapack or commands, and Spigot provides APIs for them, it must be remembered that these features are experimental/disabled for a reason. You are welcome to test them, report Spigot bugs, and contribute API, but be cautious and wary of bugs and the potential for future incompatible changes. There is every chance a world created with the experimental datapack will not be able to be upgraded to 1.18 when it is released. You also cannot remove the experimental datapack once it has been added to a world.

I'm so mad that they delayed the most important bit because of workspace stress, world gen works almost flawlessly in the snapshots already.
maybe they want to add more shit? I hope they do.

It must be a weird feeling to work on a game with tens of millions of people waiting to see your work. You need to get it as close to perfect as possible because one mistake instantly counters thousands of perfect decisions in regards to reputation

I've heard there's a new Minecraft snapshot out, it comes with a preview of the new world generation. Is it any good or worth looking at?

 No.75337

When the new world generation comes out, I'll start up the server again if people want to play minecraft some more. Just bump the thread whenever, or mention it on IRC, and I'll see about starting the server back up.

Looked at updating the server and it wasn't as hard as I was expecting. Everything should be up and running for people to join in a few hours or so. Hopefully.

Hours? But it's already late.

The thing for me is that I never played Minecraft. I did walk around a bit last time, but never really did anything. I think it has the same sort of thing as Terraria that people tend to progress 10x faster than I would at my own pace so it's really not meant to be, anyway.

Well, the difference with Minecraft is that there's not really any real linear progression like Terraria. Although it might've looked like a lot had been done, the most we did was clear some land, make some buildings, and explore the nether. The progress wasn't exactly fast either considering we were playing for maybe 8-12 hour stretches each day over the course of a week or two... I don't think changing the difficulty would really make things go any slower considering unlike Terraria, items respawn after some amount of time in Minecraft. If anything, it would just make people feel discouraged for losing items and not making it back in time before they're gone for good.

Maybe to make things go slower it would be better to have some sort of community goal or build rather than just letting everyone go off and build on their own? I'm not sure.

 No.79127

Yeah, Minecraft doesn't really have any progression system. It has a nice farming system I wish they'd develop on though.

>items respawn
Meant to say: items despawn
