• Where should the SpaceBug SMP be hosted – EU/US/AU ?

    Hi guys,

    Ok as some of you know, I am looking to change host (better price, better hardware).

    At first thought I would just go with US hosting again (west coast this time), but to be 100% sure we actual do have most players from US I invite you to take part in this Poll below.

    Please just mark the place you live or live closest too. I will then have a better foundation to make the right choice. It will probably stand between West Coast (phoenix az) or Amsterdam.

    Where do you come from? EU/US/Asia+AU

    Update 2014.01.25:

    Ok I have now ordered the new server – It is located in Ashburn, VA (East Coast)
    Will start setting things up slowly next week – it will take a bit to get everything done correctly and there should be expected some downtime as I will make quite a few changes to support multiple worlds, but I will keep the downtime to an absolut minimum.

    More info will follow when I get started on installing everything. But expect to be done with the new server and possible the new world within the first week of february.

  • Bad Santa – Harddrive issues forced a rollback ~1½ day

    Hi guys

    A bit of bad news I’m afraid. I have been forced to make a rollback to our second latest backup – made dec 24 at 01:00 AM EST. it’s about a 1½ day ago 🙁 The most recent one is the one that corrupted everything, so it cannot be used.

    This is done as a last call for me. As many of you know there had been a harddrive failure last night. I had hoped it was contained to only the player files, including sethomes, money and making negative claimblocks. Due to that I decided to fix the affected players manually and have been throughout the day – all seemed good after each fix.

    But it came to my attention that this had also affected the actual claims – making some players totally lose all their protection and they already got griefed. I have of course tried to revert those changes individually, but sadly it is not technically possible due to the way claims are written to several files.

    So only option I have now to avoid a ton of problems for you guys and me (no way of knowing how many are really affected), is to make this rollback. I know it stinks and I wouldnt do it if I had any other option.

    This way we can ensure that things work right away, and only loss will be some gametime for all of us – it’s part of running a beast like this :/

    Despite this, I hope you all have some good days with family and enjoying the holidays

  • How to claim and protect your house / land

    The method used on the server to claim/protect your things, can be a little tricky to learn at first. But when you first get the hang of it, you will enjoy how easy, fast and secure it is.

    Minecraft IP:  play.minecraft.dk

    I’v found a handful of useful videos, shown below, to help you get into the methods and commands to get most out of this server.

  • Private Chest Shops – Guide on how to make them

    Here is a short guide on how to create such a shop. Notice the price is 200 coins for each Chest shop you make.

    Guide to create your own Private Shop

    • Place a chest on the ground
    • Place a sign 1 block from the chest (for example, above the chest on a wall)
    • Fill sign with data like shown below
      chestshop 1

    (Item name can actually be item ID or alias) – Use /iteminfo to get the ID
    First line will be filled in by the plugin automatically.
    Price can be pure Buy, Sell or a combination of both
    You have to have B near buy price (people buy from you), and S near sell price (people sell to you).
    If you have both B and S, separate them with a colon :

    Example 1:

    Lets say you have a lot of cobble and want to sell to others (but not buy any), you would fill the sign like this to sell 64 cobble at a time for the price of 200 coins:
    chestshop 2

    Example 2:

    Lets say you want to buy and sell stacks of cobble. Others can buy at 200 or sell to you for 100
    chestshop sign 3

    If the ChestShop gets created correctly, the server will automaticly fill in your playername in the first line upon creation.

    Be sure to put the items in the chest below the sign or people wont be able to buy anything from you (:

  • New simple SMP server – lightweight

    Hey guys, For those with interest, then I’v added a new SMP to an old physical server I had avaliable. The server is quite simple atm – more work will be put into it slowly. For now you can consider it the wild west, no real moderation as I am tied up elsewhere atm.

    Connect:  play.minecraft.dk

    This is a permanent brand new map – You can walk out into the wilderness and find a great spot for yourself. Claim the area with a chest. The chest will create some gold blocks to show your corners of the claimed area.

    Use a stick and right click ground to see who owns a specific piece of land, or use a golden shovel to expand your own borders.

    I will introduce some shops to inflate the server with economy – With money you can buy items from other players or expand your territory (golden shovel).

  • New Server by Claush (Spacebug) – & Happy New Year

    Hi guys,

    Not sure how many of the old players are still looking here, but I am back in control of this website after letting Chrisjon & Nikmi borrow it for a while.

    Personally I have been very busy with general work, including maintaining some of my Minecraft related sites, including Minecraft Servers List, Minecraft Skins, Minecraft Help.

    November 11th I started a new Skyblock Minecraft Server with a good and dear friend Sweepingwalnut. My name on that server is Spacebug, so please feel free to drop by and say hi 🙂

    Connect: play.mcign.com

    Above you can find one of our player generated videos from the Server.

    Happy New Year to you all and hope to see some of you old rats again in 2013 : )

    And I have had a little dream to make a new SMP (factions maybe) server one day – hope to find the time to realize it
