StratsCraft PVE server
Quick Note (The server has been up since 7:40pm EST on 2/5/18)
- This is my first time running a multiplayer server, so please be patient though I definitely welcome friendly advice.
- Along with this, we may need to reset the server if run into issues with my initial setup so you may want to hold off on building the Taj Mahal right away.
- On that note, will try to have any kinks worked out by end of the first week up.
To get the server address, PM ghosthog with your minecraft username so I can add you to the whitelist. You need to be a member of Strats and have posted an intro.
You need to have Java 8 and the Java version of Minecraft and run it at least once.
Recommend using the Twitch client for downloading the mods but can do manually.
Install this version of forge: http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.10.2-220.127.116.117/forge-1.10.2-18.104.22.1687-installer.jar
Go through the Twitch client by searching for strats in the modpacks (StratCraft Pack 0.9) OR
instead, install the modpack manually: https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/stratscraft-pack
When you first log in, there is a chest at the spawn area. Grab a Golden Shovel for the Grief Prevention mod described below, and an Atlas for mapping, right click to start using (it will show minimap when close large map if kept equipped). Besides the one manual already in your inventory, the rest is up to you!
Added setting for user to have up to 3 homes set, for ease of transportation.
/homeset ghostshouse sets a homepoint by name
/home ghoststower will teleport me there if I used the homeset command for ghoststower previously
/back should teleport you back to last place of death or last place you teleported from…good say if you’re in the nether and do /home but want to get right back to where you left off because you needed to repair your Pick for instance. It shouldn’t put you back in Lava if you died there but close by, unless you died in the middle of a lake of lava, then no guarantees
/spawn should teleport you back to spawn area
If have a good machine, for better visuals, I recommend downloading/installing the Resource Pack Soartex Fanver - Modded: https://media.forgecdn.net/files/2506/752/Fanver_Modded_Universal.zip (Faithful [32x] is another good pack and lighter)
If real high end machine, there’s also a shader mod and shader packs that really make Minecraft pop.
If you have a potato however, you may need to tweak mods and general settings for performance. (Antique Map has a fair amount of performance tweaks)
You could also try a performance mod like Optifine or BetterFPS (may want one if Soartex affects your performance too much as well).
If load a resourcepack or in general have stuttering type issues while playing, you most likely need to increase your ram (MC is not optimized well). If using the Twitch app, right-click on the modpack and choose View Profile. Then in upper right corner, click on the … icon and choose Profile Options. Next uncheck Use System Settings and then choose your RAM, minimum I’d suggest is 4096mb, recommend at least 6144mb, while I go with 8190mb.
If not using Twitch, in the Minecraft launcher you can choose to edit the JVM launch options. You’ll want something like this at the beginning “-Xmx8192m -Xms6144m” to set the max and min ram size. Supposedly having both the same will help stability if still having issues, especially with lower ram settings. (If using Twitch app and edit these MC Launcher settings, they’ll default back to Twitch settings the next time you launch)
Ask for help if needed.
- Don’t be a jerk
- Be friendly
- Have fun
Creating a new claim: Right click at two points to mark the corners
Resizing a claim: Right click once in an existing claim to see the markers. Right click on a corner block and then again on a different position to move that corner.
Cancelling operations: Putting away a golden shovel without completing an operation cancels all actions.
You are limited initially to the size of your claim. Spending time on the server adds to the size of your claimable area(s)
You can add others to permissions to your claim, see the following link:
(In general I don’t think we should need this, but it keeps someone from unwittingly messing with someone else’s stuff)
