It's back! Everyone's favourite block-smashing sandbox took off with a "sssssssSSSSSS-- BOOM!" during Get-Together #8, and now it just refuses to die. Our community world has thousands of hours of contributions and keeps growing! Why not come join in the fun and play some games with your fellow PokéCommunity members?
› What's this Minecraft nonsense I've been hearing so much about?
Minecraft is a sandbox game with RPG and FPS elements, where you can let your imagination run wild and build massive fortresses, epic monster grinders, community towns, or whatever your heart desires! For more information, visit Minecraft.net.
› How can I play with you guys?
By joining our community server, of course! You can connect to our server at this address:
To add to what's already here, I've decided to take a few screenshots of what our server looks like at the moment! Places featured are New Madeira, Orabelle and Aetherea - the last two of which are under construction and are key places for our upcoming Minecraft Mondays events!
I am using the Tymix texture pack in these screenshots, here is a download link if you are interested in it.
I thought I'd get around to posting some random screens of things around the server.
That is my awesome house, and my awesome face is made of iron blocks (it's not cobble, smooth stone, it's iron blocks). That's 117 iron ingot, so almost 2 stacks of iron. Yes it's all legit, and yes I am that awesome. XD
This is a few days after we started up the new world, this Creeper took a liking to me. It'd just look at me, and not blow up. I believe Digi and Ty have a few other pics but this me taking a close up shot. I have a Yoko skin on so maybe it likes Yoko.
This is my house in Madeira (or as we call it "Old Madeira") before the world restart. Ty and Digi turned it into a duck.
This is Siggy riding a Creeper (we used to have a plugin where you could tame any mob and have them as a pet, and if you had a saddle you could ride them) high in the sky. She's waving at us because she's the flying Creeper queen or something like that. XD
After finishing the small "welcome" room for the Nether we thought we'd have a BBQ. And what's better then having a roasted pig? How about 10 lava roasted Pig-Men? XD
And here's a few shots I took while exploring Aetherea. I didn't resize these because I think these are nice shots and shows what this world is really like. And I think resized shots would take some of that away (click the pics to see the full shots).
Um, the server seems down. Maintenence or something?
Truth be told I'm not sure what's wrong with the craftrum address. But the address we're using now is "22.214.171.124", I think we're going to get a fancy one soon but for now that works.
Keep in mind that if you plan on building then build at least 1,000 blocks from spawn due to it being a public server posted on other forums. If you build out that far you have less of a chance of people joining and messing up your home.
And for now we don't have bukkit so we're just on one world (you won't see anything from the pics we posted above). But once that's updated and other plugins are updated we'll be back on multiworld and you'll be able to protect your house.
Running minecraft on windows 8 causes windows 8 to crash.
Mine doesn't crash- it just tells me I need to upgrade my graphics drivers. I don't get to the Mojang screen at all.
Edit: Here is a log:
Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.
