NEWS FLASH! Thanks to @Bella's hard work (seriously, thank you. I owe you one.) we have a functioning outlet to put updates on and work off of. This site/server is not affiliated in any way with Plaguefest but everyone may try it out. Site: REDACTED or hovelcraft.unqhosting.com/wordpress/ There's still stuff to clean up and "kits" to add but for now the server is considered LIVE. ================================ This thread was made in reference to this post: http://plaguefest.com/threads/looking-to-renew-a-server-but.12915/page-3#post-188726 It was suggested to me that I make a new thread about it as it's completely new from (pretty much) the ground up. All the old plugins are trashed, and the new mod, Pixelmon, is added along with a fresh map. A good amount of Pokémon are implemented so far (~100 or so, more to come soon) and nothing has caused a catastrophic failure yet. The types include many from the original, including different types from Soul Silver, Black and White, etc... This is a pretty fun mod and a definite change of pace. If you've never played Pokémon before or are a seasoned player you might get a kick out of it. To join the server you need the mod itself and the customized .jar files that you can find here at minecraftforge.net. simply download from one of the mirrors and continue on below. After you complete the minecraftforge download, open your minecraft.jar file with your favorite archiving tool (winrar, 7zip etc) and copy all the files into the opened minecraft.jar. When you are finished copying, DELETE the META-INF folder and exit. Once you start minecraft back up, it should load the mods and you will be good to go. It's recommended that you at least make a backup of your current minecraft.jar beforehand and keep it in another folder properly labeled in case you want to switch back to regular minecraft (or if something goes wrong and you need to start over), as this mod persists offline in single player too. For the Pixelmon mod files, just place them in the main .minecraft folder. Easy peazy. The server currently has a whitelist since each town/piece is being built by hand but future plans are to go public since very few servers run this mod right now and it seems in high demand. If you wish to be whitelisted PM me here with MC name and i'll add it in when i can. I'm on daily so it shouldn't take too long. (However if you aren't someone I know personally/someone I don't trust I cannot give you block breaking rights - Everyone starts in adventure mode, which means no bare-hand block breaking - aside from those trusted that are helping to build who in turn have creative mode.). Regular players can still explore around and capture/fight with their pokemon. Rules will be strict and enforced right now as certain actions caused renders a person unable to move/act/type forcing a full restart of minecraft to function again. If you happen to get banned for this particular reason, don't expect to be unbanned until the developer fixes the bug. Once towns are built and everything is settled hopefully launch won't be too bad. I can keep updates going here but as far as Announcements/possible contests/other possible crap I'll have to find another outlet. I don't want to make this the "server site". That's not fair to Brian or anyone else here. As outlined in the thread mentioned above, once construction is complete all player info, including server OPs is to be wiped to discourage cheating. This ensures that everyone has a fresh start, and those that work hard will be properly rewarded for their invested time and effort. Additional info: So far (possibly) a few of you reading this have offered to help with the server costs. That is greatly appreciated, but not necessary right now as I have covered this months bill. It was cheap since it's currently only 20 slots. Once this goes public, if you are willing and would still like to help, you may then. For now, lets focus on having some fun. Thanks to everyone so far for your time and help, let's do our best! Special props to Potato Paddy Bacon Supreme for putting up with my bullshit so far. BACK TO WORK! some controls: P : sends out your selected pokemon O : collapses the UI of your active belt [ : selects the next descending pokemon on your active belt ] : selects the next ascending pokemon on your active belt These can be rebinded in the controls menu for ease of access if you use a different hand placement.
