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):

RRU SMP Server

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.

 

 

 

Sign-Up List

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.

Total Members: 33

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. :)

 

 
 

Rules

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.

 

 

 

Plugins/Mods

Below is a list of currently installed plugins. Plugins labelled 'Admin only' are used for maintenance and other such things.

 

   - CraftableHorseItems

   - DiscoSheep   - Mods only

   - Dynmap   - Admin only

   - EchoPet

   - FleshToLeather

   - FramePicture**

   - Grieflog

   - Health Bar

   - More Player Models**

   - MultiInv  - Admin only

   - Multiverse-Core  - Admin only

   - Multiverse-Portals  - Admin only

   - NametagEdit  - Mods only

   - PermissionsEx   - Admin only

   - ProperTime***   - Admin only

   - ProtocolLib   - Admin only

   - Punishmental  - Mods only

   - TuxTwoLib  - Admin only

   - VoxelSniper  - Mods only

   - WorldEdit   - Mods only

Total Plugins: 20

 

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:

Spoiler

 

*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.

 

 

 

Texture Packs

Here is a list of texture packs for use on the server.

   - LIMC texture pack - For use on Xiron's LEGO Island area.

 

 

 

Other Stuff

   - 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

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:

Round List

Below is a list of all the rounds of UHC so far, including any pending rounds.

I would be interested in joining such a server :)

 

Vanilla sounds okay, too.

Fushigisaur

Interest. Of course, being one of the ones who brought it up... yeah.


I am perfectly fine with vanilla minecraft, in fact it was in the same conversation I expressed my distaste for most mods. I'm wondering about versions, though, as I've never done SMP- I mentioned I'm unable to use 1.6-1.7 right now, if I were on 1.5 and everyone else was on 1.7 would it cause issues?

Great, added to the list :thumbsup:

Also added to the list.

 

Whenever I've tried to join a server that's behind the client update version, it says 'server outdated', so I think the server would have to be version 1.7.2 in order to cater for members who can use it. Sorry :/ I don't understand why it doesn't work for you though?



#5
Arthuriel

I don't know, if this is helpful, but maybe updating Java and reinstalling Minecraft could solve the problem, Fushigi.

Once before... or maybe it was twice? We had a MC server for RRU, one was official and hosted by Cyrem, and then another was hosted by another RRU member (who is no longer super active), they lived for some time but then died out.

But hey, if insterst rises again, why not have another one again? It has been a while.



#7
EXRicky

I might join it, idunno though.

Ever since I had a lot of problems on another server I went to (and left it due to), I've became very wary about multiplayer.

Wow, deja vu. If it actually lasts this time I might pop in.

#9
The Ace Railgun

Well it'd give me a reason to get on Minecraft again. Sure i'll join.

Sure, I'm in for this. I fancy vanilla MC.

Sure, sign me up. And I can help you maintain the server if you need help  :)

I'm okej with the vanilla Minecraft . 

I can also create a cratbukkit server only with permission and restrictions and no mods if we need that.

I do recommend whitelisting, because even on the earlier days of this site I've seen some poor results from non-whitelists (like greifing and thieves for one instance).

I suppose I haven't said if I'm interested or not yet. Lets just say I'm semi interested.

Btw, if you need any assistance I'm here to help, I've privately hosted a few times myself, mostly bukkit though (I love it too much. XP), but I've used Vanilla too.

Wow, I wasn't expecting this many people signing up so soon! I'll add everyone who's posted to the list now. Not to bind you to a contract or anything, but just to get an idea of potential numbers.

Well, even if it is something that comes and goes, I'm happy to host it this time around. In response to jamesster's comment too, as I said in the OP this'll be 24/7 open, I don't know if that's different to before. Plus by the looks of things there are already a lot of people interested.

I'm sorry that's the case for you, but as this server is for RRU members only I think you should give it a try. Judging by the current people signing up I'm sure you'll really enjoy it, and I see no reason for any major conflicts to occur. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the offer, but I was hoping to have one moderator in largely separated time zones (e.g. GMT, GMT-6, GMT+6), to increase chances of one being online :) However seeing as I may not be so active myself I'll let you know if I need the help.

I'll also let you know if craftbukkit should be installed, I'm glad someone has the knowledge to do it!

I'll definitely be whitelisting it. This is for RRU members only, after all. Thanks for the offer too, the same thing applies with OREST above :) If you don't mind me asking, what time zone are you in?

 

 

EDIT: Okay, I'll start setting up the server later, seeing as there are already nine people interested.

It should be fine then, so I'll give it a try.

Due to my interest in building on top of mountains conflicting with how mountains now get snow, (which is a feature I'm not fond of, cuz I don't like cold climates very much) don't be surprised if you see a floating glass platform or dome over any mountain I build on, cuz I'd build such over it to prevent snowfall.

 what time zone are you in?

UTC/GMT -8

Alright, I've chosen two moderators which should be plenty (if you add myself). Please take no offence OREST, I wasn't sure who to pick but am more familiar with Segatendo and Fushigisaur, who are in turn more active members of RRU.

 

I'm setting up the server now, I'll have it ready by the afternoon hopefully as I have some stuff to do.

I'm living in the utc+1 time zone (Sweden)

And no problem JimbobJeffers. I just said I could help if you wanted that :)

Then you are most certainly welcome to, sir!

 

Also, just to let you all know - the server has been paid for but I'm just waiting for the hosts to confirm payment and set it up.

Ugh. I have Minceraft and I want to join, I think it would be fun, since I didn't have MC when the old servers were up, however I don't have unlimited internet. I only get 10GB a month to share between 4 people, and It's satellite internet, which has a delay. Put me on the list if you want, but I don't know when or if I can get on to play.
