    As I was logging off of FFXIV for the day I thought "I haven't played minecraft in a while, wonder what's changed". Apparently a lot. I saw they're renting server space through themselves for $13. Last time there wasn't much buzz about it and the server we were running (and our work on it; mostly dharkk's) eventually flopped.

    Do people still have an interest in minecraft? (I realize this question and the last sentence of the first paragraph contradict each other but there was enough people logging in before, enough to warrant running a modded server for a few months.)

    With the realms servers you need to be invited to join/play, the servers are really small right now and according to the FAQ 20 can be invited total, and 10 can be on at one time. If there's enough interest I can throw $13 to test it out for a month but I want there to be a solid interest in it first otherwise it will be a waste of time and a month's FFXIV sub, and that would make me pretty salty.

    Modding isn't allowed just yet, so it would most likely offer creative and survival at the very least. There are no size restrictions either so no worries about 2k block borders to save space. The payment options are nice because I can either set recurring or single payments depending on the longevity I want instead of worrying about a possibly missed monthly bill and other random-bullshit RSVP from the host's mail bot. I've got no problem doing this but I think minecraft is infinitely more fun when there's a group of us playing.

      I remember a time when we played pokemon minecraft together and it didn't work well.

      yeah, it was awkward and weird thanks to server lag and a semi-unfinished mod. What i'm hoping is that since everything is run thru mojang lag wont be too much of a problem and we can have a decent guaranteed alive server to play on, instead of one through a spotty host that may or may not be active and/or prone to ddos attempts. Our UNQhost or whatever it was that we were running our server on last wasn't exactly stellar

      I miss the Minecraft Server that Dharkk and Haplo maintained. I built a lot of cool things and it was really enjoyable. If another pF Minecraft Server comes about I will be playing it quite a bit.
      I also made skins for several of the players during that time and I would love to make more :callme:

      I'd definitely be up for it, no idea how well it'll hold my interest though.

        If you want to test it for now, I have a server. It's cheap as dicks so even though I haven't used it in half a year, I still pay for it. Just hit me up on steam if you're interested, I'll get back to you when I'm on. On a side note, although we can't do mods yet, maps can be uploaded. Also there are mini-games to choose from, never tested them but they could be interesting.

                People seem to be misunderstanding that the server is run though Minecraft Realms, meaning there will be NO mods, just a vanilla server and Minecraft officially supported Mini-games. That said, with command blocks it is possible to create our own mini-games of sorts, we just need someone who's willing to spend the time creating them.

                    So, is this actually gonna happen or did you just have a moment @Taters? If you want to use my already paid for server, I'll need everyone's MC names since it has a built in white list.
