Cemetech Minecraft Server 2.0 (MC 1.7+)
« on: December 31, 2013, 04:28:28 pm »
In August 2012, we started discussing the idea of a Cemetech Minecraft server. We had a powerful dedicated server for the task, and more and more Cemetechians were playing the game. For over a year, we hosted a Survival server (publicized along with our Unreal Tournament 2004 server in an October 2012 news article), but with the release of Minecraft 1.7.x, we decided to do something new. For about three weeks, a dozen hard-working Cemetech members have been creating a new map and server for Cemetech's Minecraft server. They built an expansive, beautiful spawn with modern buildings and rustic paths, a powerful world-wide railroad system, and helped me configure a variety of plugins for the most fun, safe experience possible. I'm happy to announce that the Cemetech Minecraft Server 2.0 is now open.

Cemetech's Minecraft server is PvP, using Towny, and includes an economy (or in Minecraft terms, Cemetech Minecraft Server [PVP/Towny/iConomy]. I feel strongly that a competitive PvP environment will make for fun gameplay. I've long played on other PvP servers, and I always play a defensive game, building a well-fortified town with traps, walls, and extensive farms. With the maturity and intelligence of Cemetech's userbase, I anticipate beautiful towns with excellent defenses, fun raids, and complex political intrigue. We use Towny, so if you just want to build, you can get the money to make a town, then create protected builds inside the town. Towns cost the equivalent of 2 gold ingots per real-world day, so if you hate mining, you can even create an overworld Zombie Pigman farm and collect gold from that. We urge you to hop onto mc.cemetech.net, bring all your friends, and start building. If you have suggestions about ways we could make the server even more fun, please post them here.

I want to especially thank (in alphabetical order) Abrum, AHelper, CharlesSprinkle, Chronomex, ComicIDIOT, CVSoft, Leafiness, LuxenD, Merthsoft, Pizzaboy, Rivereye, Shkaboinka, and Turiqwalrus for their help creating this new map and server. See you in Minecraft!

Yay! Maybe I'll join again. The server I ran lagged hard, and I'd really like to play the game smoothly again.
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

Will MC 1.7+ run on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition if we use gCn?

Joking aside, I like what you have done so far in the picture. My only concern, though: When someone builds a very large town with 2 months of work, if he gets raided and lacks proper defense, can he lose everything?

If he forgets to put blocks over his chests, forgets to pay rent, or doesn't bother putting valuables in protected rooms, yes, he will lose things in chests. If he remembers to pay town rent and builds a decently-designed town, he will be well-defended against intruders. The picture doesn't show the massive rail system, of which I am particularly proud, or the great deal of terraforming within the spawn area that many people worked on. I hope you check it out and enjoy it.

One day I need to do a trip on this server to explore. Unfortunately I am not a big fan of Minecraft, but I like to see what other people have built.

Are there any calculator-themed constructions in there, such as Gemini or Block Dude maps?

Me neither, but I gave this server a little visit. Sounds fun.

I LIKE THE IDEA!
I will play Minecraft with Cemetechians and Omnimagicians alike now :)
Keep trying.

Thanks, you guys should. :) We've had 8-10 users on at any given time since yesterday, and two towns have already been founded. People also seem to really enjoy the railway system for moving about the map.

*bump* Just want to remind everyone that this exists. We generally have 6-10 players on most evenings, and we have five very big and active towns developing. Feel free to stop by for some intelligent, strategic Minecraft fun.
