Hi. We're building a (long awaited) Minecraft server for NerdForum users.

 

So this brings up the question of

  1. PVP enabled?
  2. Mods?
    1. would prefer to stay away from full tekkit unless there's overwhelming want

Only NerdForum users with a validated non-banned account will have access.

Plan on playing? Suggestions for mods? Want to go carebear?

pls respond

Tekkit rules but its very intensive, full agreement.
I'd vote no PVP.
I'd instead suggest wireless redstone(if a recent version works well). 
In addition, an operating and recent copy of Buildcraft wouldn't go awry, if the group thought the system could handle it. 
Buildcraft introduces some cool tools for automation etc, but its self contained enough to run without a full tekkit setup. 
You get pipes and pumps, you get the fillers, builders and sketch tables. Those 3 alone make buildcraft turn a server 180 degrees in terms of options.
Side not for any solo players, Voltz is mad fun but you will JANK YOUR SHIT if you try to start lobbing nukes everywhere,

Alternately, you could grab an Airships map and equip MachineMuse Modular Armor for a really cool pvp server setup.

I haven't played any minecraft on my computer in a good long while, but I would strongly lean toward playing again with you fine folk.

I don't much care for the specifics.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

I like pvp, but chances are the majority won't want pvp.

 

I've actually never tried any of the mods for minecraft, but I have no strong opinion about them.

 

I think it'll be fun either way.

I never use mods in single player, but the standard protection mods are nice in pub servers

separate pvp, survival, and creative worlds.

 

preferrably all using normal terrain generation. ( I hate plots. they're boring and uninspiring.

maybe some different themed arenas in the PVP world for people to fight in. 

 

I would gladly volunteer some of my time to help build things like cities around spawn and such, I've played minecraft for years and currently staff on a creative server, so I have some experience with large minecraft builds. 

 

the only mods I use are Rei's minimap, Optifine, and sometimes texture packs (I guess resource packs now, what the fuck mojang?)

 

maybe get WorldEdit and VoxelSniper for sertian ranked players, and only in creative world. (staff would get voxel/WE anywhere)

Honestly have no experience with any mods or anything, but I love good old fashioned vanilla Minecraft, and would love to play with you folks.  I vote no PVP, or maybe separate PVP and non PVP realms.  Survival is my favorite, but I could live with creative.

Anyone have more thoughts on 3 separate worlds? The one thing to keep in mind is that we are a relatively small community so I'm somewhat against potentially subdividing that.

point taken, perhaps having PVP areas in survival would be better.

So, I'm a minecraft noob, but is there a way we can have a normal map with pvp zones?

Yep, we can disable PVP everywhere except for designated zones.

PvP is great, maybe MCMMO as well? That's one of the only mods I ever liked for Minecraft. Maybe a mod where you can put PvP off in towns and have it on in the wilderness? =3

 

e: As with above and below, I'd love to help building if you need it. I do a lot of mega building, I've done projects like Blenheim Palace and the Tower of Babel (because I have way too much time on my hands, I know,) but I also do stuff like Tudor houses and villages if I have enough time. =)

I'd help with building as well, I'm sub-proficient in redstone but I'm in no way bad at building.

Also for anyone who might not know, you can totally set the server to creative to set the spawns etc up, then set it to survival or whatever, its a native command.

Also could simply ban pvp in non-combat areas via honor rules, its a small enough group that you could easily police that.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

It looks like we'll be running Bukkit with Wireless Redstone and WorldGuard to allow PvP in designated areas - if you have any other mods you'd like to see, feel free to suggest them. (A list can be found here)

 

I've been busy with work (this week included ._.) but you'll see the server soon™.
