NOTICE: Please check out the website for this server here, where information and discussion can also be found!
The RRU Minecraft server is another way for members of RRU to meet up outside of the forum, for those who enjoy playing Minecraft too. This server is open 24/7 and available solely to members of RRU. If you're interested in joining this server, simply post here or send me a PM and I'll add you to the list!
Currently I pay for the server hosting. The details of the server are as below:
- 1GB RAM
- 1-20 Players
- Bukkit server
- 1GBps Network Port
- American-based server host
- 24/7 server uptime
I'm perfectly happy to pay for it on my own, but if enough donations were made I could up the specs of the server (just $4 is enough per upgrade). Plus donations are welcome anyway to pay for it, it's only $4 a month
Live Server Map
You can check out the server online at any time here, in a Google Maps-style preview from Dynmap (see 'Plugins/Mods' below):
Hint: Move your mouse to the right of the screen to open the sidebar. From here you can switch between the default flat overhead view and a 3D view.
Ops are underlined. In order to sign up to this server you must have at least 10 posts and have been a member for at least 4 months. This is to prevent random members who don't contribute to the forum from joining and playing on the server.

Note: Although this server only supports 20 players, this means 20 players at once. Seeing as there are generally only 1-5 players online (I've never seen more than 5 myself), you can still sign up to the server.
I know this is a friendly small server, but rules are still important to keep things from getting out of hand and ensuring everyone has a good time. Hence you must follow the two rules below or you may be banned from the server.
Rule 1: Respect Other Players
This means no insulting other members, or using derogatory language to others. This also means NO GRIEFING - which includes vandalising other people's creations, damaging them, etc. Unless you are given permission from that player.
If you believe you have been a victim of griefing, position yourself as close as possible to the griefed area and use the command /glog report*. You can also send me a PM with the approximate time and place. I will then review the report and find the player who is responsible.
*Eh, this doesn't seem to be working. Just send me a PM if you have any issues.
Rule 2: No Cheating
This includes me and the moderators too (as does the previous rule), especially as we have more 'powers'. I don't know if cheating is possible on servers but if so, don't do it Moderators should not use commands such as /give to grant themselves or others items, xp, etc., as this is a survival server.

If you're one of those people who don't like lots of mods installed on a server (don't worry, I understand) - fear not.
All that is different, for standard players, is listed below:
*FramePicture is currently publicly usable. However, this is on the condition that you do not overuse such frames, nor do you place any inappropriate content in them. Put it this way: if you're not allowed to post it here, then you cannot place it on an item frame either.
**You are not required to mod your client to use this, but if you want to see other players and change your own model then you will need to download the mod linked in the plugin's page.
***Currently the days are set to double the length of standard Minecraft days.
Here is a list of texture packs for use on the server.
- PVP is disabled
- Flight is disabled
- Mobs and animals are enabled
- Structures and dungeons do generate. Please don't steal everything you can, give others opportunities to loot things.
- Day/Night cycles are active but the time can be kept as day upon request, should players not want to hunt at night at the time.
- Thanks Fushigisaur for making the spawnpoint area Also for suggesting the world seed.
Also, it'd be nice if players could maintain a good distance from each other's structures. If someone builds something big or that they are otherwise proud of, be respectful and don't build a huge portal right next to it.
UltraHardcore is a special game that can be played in which players must defeat the Ender Dragon in a short space of time, while avoiding being killed by other players, on an extremely hard difficulty. The plugin used for this server is UltraHardcore. A brief run-down of the mechanics are below:
- Health regeneration is disabled.
- You lose hearts if hungry.
- Only Healing Potions and Golden Apples can restore health.
- Player versus Player is enabled.
- The aim is to defeat the Ender Dragon. However, if at any point one man is left remaining, they are nominated the winner.
- Branch mining is not allowed; you must mine your resources using natural caves.*
- If you die, the game is over, and you are banned from the server until the round is over.
*See this image by antillies if you're not sure where to draw the line. You can create tunnels between caves, tunnels as homes, etc. But extensive branch mining involving many corridors and such is clearly not allowed.
While a round of UHC is underway, the standard server will be backed up and closed temporarily.
If you'd like an idea of what the game is like, antillies provided an excellent description:
Below is a list of all the rounds of UHC so far, including any pending rounds.
