    So I've finally (FINALLY) decided to open the Minecraft server I've been talking about forever, it's been over 16 months since I bought the VPS it runs on. It's not completely done (maybe 95%) but after all this time I've got to get it going before Minecraft gets too dang old! After 3 different OS distros, hundreds of hours of configuration, and even learning some Java since the plugin functionality I needed wasn't up to snuff yet, I'm finally ready to open the doors:


    Game server: mc.thesuperserver.com

    Forum: http://www.thesuperserver.com

    Live world map: http://maps.thesuperserver.com

    Store: http://store.thesuperserver.com

    Mumble voice chat: voice.thesuperserver.com

    There's even a Twitter account to follow that will talk about events, news about server status, plugin updates etc: @TheSuperServer

    Going officially live on Sunday (on the major Minecraft forums, server trackers, and to the 150 person Steam group from my old game server) but you guys are the first to know!

    Other than some friends and family, that makes you guys my first beta testers! Let me know if you find any problems, and there's a feedback thread on the forum.

    The map is fun, but I have a few things I'd like to suggest...

    tomorrow.

    I tripled the claimblock earn rate... It was way too slow even by my standards.

    Is there a different claiming scheme you could use? The gold/glowstone continually popping up on the floor and ceiling and the message "others can undo your work here..." constantly while I'm building is kind of annoying.

    That should be less of an issue when I tweak things correctly and you earn claimblocks at a good enough rate... You'd rarely be building outside your claim. I do need to see if I can limit the message and keep it from spamming all the time when you do choose to build in the wild though.

    That being said I just added 1500 claimblocks to your account. :)

    Oh nice. I need to expand that claim anyway. I quickly outgrew that 6x6 wood hut I built for shelter.

    I've been checking in remotely from work. :) Just sent out an announcement to 150 people on the Steam group for my old Hidden:Source server, that should drum up some new players. Also starting to list on a few of the server lists.

    Did your claimblocks get increased? I saw that the claim area hasn't gotten any bigger.

    EDIT: And now that I check again, it's good :)

    I thought I'd expanded my claim. Maybe I did it wrong. It should encompass my entire house.
