Fort Huggable: Server & Updates

Posted: 01/17/11
by Duvessa
Minecraft is a sandbox building video game which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. It is currently in development, originally by creator Markus "Notch" Persson and now by his company formed from the proceeds of the game, Mojang. The gameplay is inspired by Dwarf Fortress, Dungeon Keeper, and Infiniminer. In order to play on the Raven's Minecraft server, you'll need to be a registered user of the game, see below for details.

Tenebrae's Installation Instruction Thread

The Raven runs a Survival Mode Multiplayer server. When you run Minecraft, select "Multiplayer" and put in: or

In the field for the address of a server. Click connect, and you should be off to the races. Keep in mind that both the Raven's server, and the master login servers for the game are buggy. They can get swamped with overloads on a regular basis and may cause frustration when trying to log in.

The general consensus seems that people do NOT want "op" powers, but to play without cheats. There is, however, a little dispensary of helpful items that has been set up near the spawn point.

From another forum I go to.

Code: Select all

Minecraft first turned out to be a singleplayer/online game where you built anything your heart desired with a large variety of blocks. This gamemode was and still is called Creative. But since Survival Mode is all the rage, Creative seems to be lost behind all of the commotion, only played by the poor men of the Internet.

What exactly is Survival Mode?
Survival Mode was the second gamemode Notch (aka Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft) has ever made to Minecraft. The gamemode is all what you can imagine by the title - surviving. With the ability to create any structure with a large variety of interesting craftable and obtainable items, endless hours of gameplay. And with the exciting Multiplayer, it just keeps getting better.

Survival Mode all started out with Survival Test, with Notch just toying with things that would soon become the incredible gamemode we all play today.

Next came /indev/, also known as In Development(?), which was just Survival Test, only, well, I'm not exactly sure why he did this, but he did it for a very good reason I bet.

After that came /infdev/, also known as Infinite Development(?), but again, like /indev/. I'm still boggled about why he did this.

And finally, after everything was prepared, he released the fantastic game of Minecraft Alpha (also known as Minecraft Survival), the game we HAD until December 20, when the game was updated to Beta and the price was doubled! Further updates will continue to be free but this means the game will be nearing completion far in the future! 

Code: Select all

What are mobs?
Mobs are creatures that roam the generated terrain of every level. They can range from nice pigs to green dicks that blow up your shit.

There are currently 12 mobs in Survival Mode, with 5 of them being passive.

- Pigs are friendly mobs. They may seem cute, but not everyone lives forever. So you'll have to kill such adorable creatures for their delicious bacon that heals 1.5 hearts (cooked bacon heals 4 hearts).

- Sheep are just as adorable as pigs. You are able magically shear them with your hands by punching them, which results in 1-3 blocks of wool being dropped.

- Cows seem friendly, but they look pretty stupid. But these mobs drop up to 1-3 leather, which can collected to be crafted into really crappy armor.

- Chickens may look like ducks, but try not to get them confused too much. Chickens can drop from 1-3 feathers when killed.

- Squids are a new addition to Minecraft that came with a big update. When killed, they drop 1 - 3 ink sacks which is useful for wool dye.

- Zombies looks like they're ready to hug, right? Well try not to get too close, because these fuckers pack a punch. They drop 1-3 feathers for God knows why when killed. When it turns day, they begin to burn (there must be no blocks above them, even leaves).

- These assholes like to shoot arrows at you from anywhere when they're close to you. Do NOT get trapped in a pit with Skeletons above you. When killed, they drop 1-3 arrows. Just like Zombies, they burn as well when it's day.

- Spiders lurk anywhere, and are ready to jump at you whenever. They can be a big pain in the ass, especially when there are more than one. When killed, they drop 1-3 string. But with Spiders, they do not start on fire, but most of the time they become friendly, making nice house guests.

- Slimes are currently broken for some odd reason. But they are very adorable mobs, even if they are unfriendly. Slimes can range from many sizes; smallest slimes don't hurt you, so you can have them follow you and keep them as a pet! When they are killed, they usually drop 1-3(?) slime balls.

- These gigantic dicks are the epiphany of why I hate this game at times. They can be lurking ANYWHERE - even more concealed than spiders, and jump at you and blow up for no reason. They may seem like they need a hug (like Zombies) but be careful - they will destroy your shit. And what makes it worse is that they do NOT burn in daylight. But they drop 1-3 gunpowder when they are killed (not blown up) that can be crafted with sand to create TNT.

Pig Zombies
- Pig Zombies were added in during the Halloween Update. Though they can only be found in the Nether, they are completely friendly (until you disturb them by hurting them).

- Ghasts were added in during the Halloween Update. These large, white, box-like, annoying fuckers shoot fireballs at you from wherever they are floating, even if you aren't that close. Thank god Notch fixed them from crying so much when on fire, you'd probably quit playing the game when it happened. 

Code: Select all

What is the Nether?
The Nether (underworld, hell, etc.) was added in during the Halloween Update. When you construct a portal (an outline of a box used with obsidian and then lit with flint and steel) it will teleport you to a randomly generated level called the Nether. There are all sorts of interesting things there. But don't let me bore you with words, go try it for yourself!

Just a reminder for anyone who hasn't been playing Minecraft since the recent changes, spiders can now climb walls, making certain structures that used to be safe not so safe anymore. However, they are apparently not able to climb on blocks made of sandstone. To create sandstone, you'll need four pieces of sand. Put them in your crafting window in a square (as though you were creating a crafting table).

Sandstone however is not a very good defense against creepers, as the ill-fated entrance to my first mine found out yesterday evening.

It's a crazy addictive game for those who begin to obsess with perfection. My goal is a deadly shooting gallery with the new dispensers to lure in monsters and critters so I can collect their stuff. Murderzone! Weee.

So, while the multiplayer server is getting sorted out, I've started playing a new single player game to take advantage of all the beta changes. I'd just like to take a moment to give kudos to this new game, because I've just had awesome luck so far. I ended up with a big deposit of clay right next to my spawn point, so I'm going to be able to make a ton of brick blocks to build with. Then, when I moved away from that spawn point (since it was on an island) I just happened to build my next safe house directly on top of a huge natural cave system with naturally forming obsidian.

To balance this luck, I'm expecting a rain of creepers.

Can you mine obsidian? I haven't tried cause I thought it was invulnerable or somethin'.

You can mine obsidian indeed! It's only next to invulnerable. To mine it you need a diamond pick and even then it takes a bit of time to actually dig out. I think it is possible to break a block of obsidian with less than a diamond pick, it takes absurdly long and then you don't even get a piece of obsidian to pick up afterward though.

We're back online!

The general consensus seems that people do NOT want "op" powers, but to play without cheats. I will, however, stock up the little dispensary that has been set up near the spawn point, and will take requests for items to put there. First come, first served.

Given that the Minecraft login servers crash with astonishing regularity, I have changed Fort Huggable, temporarily to insecure status. This means you can login even when the Mincraft official login servers are down. Sometimes his may result in you getting the name "Player" instead of your character name. That's the best I can do, since logins are out of my hands. I suggest you make sure keep a stock of spare inventory in your homes for events where you can log in, but not as yourself.

Fort Huggable is now running on its own server, independent of the Raven, and that is the ONLY software running on it. A full gigabyte of memory is devoted to the server, so it should run very nicely.

Boats work well. It's a little wierd leaving one, I have to jump more often than in single player. But entering and riding around is very smooth. Until the spiders jump you.

I am experiencing missing chunks, though. Mobs can cross them, it seems, but when I try to, I get stuck at the edge.
Which might be a good thing. The last server, I got stuck in the void after falling through the bottom. :D
These seem to move around whenever I log out, so it might be a loading error on my end, rather than the server.

Fort Huggable Has Moved!

Until now. Fort Huggable was hosted on a server in my office at work, but as the possibility looms of me looking for other opportunities, I need to dispense with such luxuries. So... I've moved the server to a Minecraft hosting service. For about $12 a month, they will host the server, keep it updated, and manage all of the other headaches I normally have had to deal with. On balance, I think this is good for our small Minecraft community.

Please make note of the new addresses above. Let me know if you feel the new server is at all laggy or bad in some way. If this doesn't work out, we can go back to the old server.
