General Minecraft Discussion - Page 302

post #3011 of 3183
Let me clarify here, since it wasn't explained well.
You are still more then welcome to talk about your Minecraft server, that is not changing. You are still able to post pics/mods/etc etc from your server, again, that is not changing. The only thing we would ask is you do not ADVERTISE your server like it's been allowed in the past here.
I hope this clears up some confusion. If you have any further questions/complaints feel free to PM me. smile.gif

Just went through this with Fir3Chi3f's server. But what he and I felt was that we were blind sided by this news. Maybe we both just missed a posted about or something but we thought OCN getting a MC server would be big news and been blasted all over the front page. Is there a thread about OCN getting an official MC server? Is there a set date for when this happens?

 

 

I am all for OCN getting an Official server and I may find myself venturing onto it a few times mainly because Fir3Chi3f did decide to collaborate world with the OCN server. But I'm not sure how well Minecraft can host hundreds of people without becoming overly congested and then inhibit the games playability. I under stand that there will be separate worlds as some people decide if they wish their well established servers to be incorporated into the OCN server but I just see everyone's urge to build giant monuments taking over the game. Which in hindsight really is the game can be used for once you have "beaten" it. In my eyes, Minecraft's major flaw is its greatest strength and that is it being a giant never ending sandbox in which you can do anything your creativity can come up with.

 

Wow didn't mean to go off on a rant like that. redface.gif

As far as information on when it will be available, I do not have that. I'm not sure if there is a date set yet or not, Kirby or Sin100 would know better then me on that. When we do get the server, I have no doubts that there will be a thread made, and a image posted in the carousel, like was done for the BF3 server and mumble. I can try to get a date from Sin and get back to you on that though.
I just wanted to hop in the discussion here to try to mitigate any outrage of the slight change that will be taking place. Usually if OCN get's a gaming server, it's at the launch of the game. With this game being out for the time it has, and OCN just now getting a server, things are slightly different this time around. We of course want you all to enjoy the server and populate it, after all this is happening because the members asked for it. We however don't want to start the server in a negative way. We know you all have found a 'Minecraft home' for lack of better terms, and we don't expect you to drop everything and play / talk / discuss / share only about the OCN server. Again, we want this to be a positive thing.
The only thing we ask you to stop (when OCN server goes live, until then it shouldn't be an issue) is threads like "Join my minecraft server" or something along the lines of that. As you know, there are TONS of different servers out there, so there is a fair bit of competition already out there. We are going to need help populating our server, and that's why we ask you to stop.
Again, if you guys have any questions/complaints, send them my way. I'm more then happy to address them. smile.gif


I hope I explained everything well. redface.gif

I have been in communication with Fir3Chi3f about this already. He has decided to merge. His world will be part of the official server and he will be a moderator or admin. Trust me he was not blind sided. We have had friendly and direct discussion about this and its already settled.

And trust me, the server specs of the official server are more than enough. This server is going to be blazing fast and able to support a lot of players with no problems.

I am really looking forward to the official server, at least 10 other people and myself have been working very hard to make sure that it will be amazing over the past few months. We will do everything possible to make sure that it is a good experience for the players of all the servers that have merged together for this and any new players who discover Minecraft smile.gif

Well this is rather disappointing. I was very close to setting up a 20-player server for me and a few OCN people to play on. I could still do it but now spreading the word just got much more cumbersome. :|

I am very excited for the new server that is coming up soon. Hope there is a lot more to do for the new server.

Oh I understand why private servers are being asked to be "shutdown" I would have thought a thread would have been made announcing that OCN is making  a MC server. I know it's not up and running but seeing how this seems to be a "special case" there would be a thread explaining why private servers are no longer being permitted (OCN is going to be hosting and its is against the TOS to broadcast private servers to games that OCN host). What the plans are for OCN's server, how many people it can support, the basic layout of how the world(s) will be run. when it may be up, what the plans are for integrating people into the new server. You know, the proverbial  welcoming wagon.

I know he story behind Fir3Chi3f's server. I was helping him discuss the decision, though it was up to him to make.

 

I didn't mean to come off as a jerk, or angry or what have you. but when I say blind sided I meant I hadn't seem any notification of the plan for OCN to host a server. I just figure it would have been easier to make a thread explaining the plans as opposed to waiting until you run across someone's thread about their server and telling them their thread will be deleted and asking them to join the server.

 

I have no doubt the server will have the balls to support a huge load of people and traffic it will draw. I was questioning the games mechanics and ability to cater to the amusement and structural need that hundreds of people will create by being dropped in a giant sandbox. Things will have to be community driven and for I know people make take it upon themselves to create quests, goals, and story lines similar to what the boys and girls from Yogscast did with their Israphel series. I guess I never really played on K1rby's server or any of the other ones, they were just all too bloated with stuff to do anything in. They are fun to run around in and look at the building but that was about it for me.

 

 

But like I've said before I'm glad to see the OCN is providing these services free to the public. I think it is a great idea to bring everyone's projects together so they can be shared and explored though means other than pictures and videos. I can't wait to be
