Discussion / Mineserver Runs On... (post your specs)
« on: February 01, 2011, 01:46:09 am »
This topic was created to show off the specifications of machines that run Mineserver, whether they're fast or slow, new or old, good or bad.

I'll start:

Mineserver runs on:
  • Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz Single-core w/ Hyper-threading
  • 2 GB (1x2 GB) Kingston RAM
  • MSI PM8M-V Motherboard
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

Using these specs, I can easily have 10 people online playing in a single world with no lag, while playing with them on the same machine as the server is running.

Development / Redstone / Snow Worlds

Simply a couple questions.

Can you add an option to generate complete snow worlds? As in, screw the "bio-dome" concept and force snow to be generated always? This would definitely be something I'd use, as well as a few of my friends. If this does become a feature, it would be cool to go the extra mile and make it possible to say yes or no for generating snow under trees, or things like that, or possibly having it generate under trees but never fall under trees; just an idea that would be cool that was never seen in Notch's server. Another thing that could go well with that is being able to choose how ice vs. water is generated and how it works.

Which brings me to my second question, which isn't really a feature request, but I'm still curious about--any estimate in when Redstone can be used to activate doors and other devices? With the last x86 build (Jan 15, '11), placing Redstone Dust/Wire was possible but it disappeared after a second and I couldn't figure out how to use it.

Discussion / Definitely better than Java
« on: January 16, 2011, 10:44:11 am »
I've now known of Mineserver since about 2 months ago now, and I must say...

- I love the server's speed/performance. It beats the Java server any day.
- The progress I see every week impresses me. Being out of date for just 2 weeks leaves me WAY behind in this project; one week everything seems like havoc, the next it's all peaceful and worked out (and there's newer havoc in different places).

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Mineserver be comparable to Notch's Minecraft server (in terms of completeness and features).

With that said, don't drain the energy; keep working on Mineserver. It's definitely improving faster than I can keep track of.
