I’d like to sign up if there’s still room. The ones Captainsparklez has done were both awesome.May 19, 2012 at 1:30 pm #31539
this sounds really cool!May 21, 2012 at 6:34 pm #32093May 21, 2012 at 6:38 pm #32094May 21, 2012 at 7:52 pm #32105
I sincerely apologize to any of you who have been waiting anxiously for an update from me about this. I just got caught up in mod business, IRL stuff, and server things. So, here’s your update. I’m sorry if this becomes an essay, I’m just going through every comment as I write this and replying to all the ones I feel need replying to. So, here goes nothing.
Gonna start off by letting you guys know when I have the first event planned(I know there’ll be more than one of this. There’s just too much interest for it to be a one time thing.). Right now, I have the 1st “Annual” Minecraft Hunger/Survival Games (Try abbreviating that, why don’t ya) planned for the 2nd of June, tentatively. The only problem I can see is my video card not coming in time, so, it will either be the 2nd, or the 9th of June, hoping for the 2nd. It will be starting at 12 PM Pacific Daylight Time, unless enough people have a problem with that time period. We will likely run for about 3 hours, hopefully, with the first hour just being setup.
Can I be a Gamemaker? One of the people who helps plan the Games and redirects players towards each other?
I know Mark answered this already kind of but I want to give a little more of an explanation. We are not planning on having sponsors like those from CaptainSparklez’s videos on this, mainly because creative mode, flying around quickly, and vanishing all put a little bit more of a strain on the server, and I want it to be as stable as I can get, and as lag-free as possible, to prevent complaints of lag-induced deaths.
Which map will it be? Old one or new one?
Another one Mark answered already, but just gonna answer it anyways. I’m somewhat leaning toward the new version, but I’m reserving judgement until he posts the updated version with more treasure chests and stuff.
As I mentioned previously, we’re waiting on a few things to arrive before I get started. I have been/still am taking donations to get more RAM, for my streaming computer, also would like to get more and better hardware for my server, but that is a long way away, as I’ll essentially have to upgrade everything. But, that’s the future. For now, I’m getting a new video card (An XFX Radeon HD 6850) and 4 more GB of RAM, as I mentioned. I have just about enough money for it, although I wouldn’t mind a little leeway to consider a bit better of a card, or, at this point, better shipping.
I am thinking of seeing how a map render plugin that gives real-time player positions works on the server, but I am definitely expecting it to produce a ton of lag. If it does turn out well, I will implement it, but I have no expectations.
The stream will be on my channel, http://www.twitch.tv/cliffjameston and I will have a set up of 4 separate windows, streaming 4 different player perspectives at a time (Which is why I need the new GPU and RAM), but I would ask that, if you are competing, that you not watch the stream until you have died. I will be running it through a 1 minute delay server, just to prevent too much cheating (I know, it’s a long time, but I will have the stream going on my laptop so I can have a little context for comments), but still, please try and stay out of the stream until death. Or at least have it paused until then.
That’s pretty much it for this update, hope it posts, and hope you all have fun watching/participating in the games! Please feel free to comment in here with any questions you may have for me/Mark, and I will try to get to any I can.May 22, 2012 at 12:02 am #32197
mlamascese52: are you going to compete?
yea, that would be awesome. but i wonder if there is room anymore..?May 22, 2012 at 10:27 am #32248
Hmmm is there anyway you could move it to the 9th of june or the 3rd of june? Its just i’ll be out on the 2nd, so i wouldn’t be able to show upMay 22, 2012 at 10:36 am #32249
annabanana: yea, that would be awesome. but i wonder if there is room anymore..?
I expect some people to not show up for various reasons (I forgot, Busy, etc.), so there will likely be enough people. And, like I said in the essay I posted yesterday, I’ll be doing more than one, so even if there are too many people, we can just have a second game.

I will see. Would that same time on either day work for you? 12 PM Pacific Daylight Time?May 22, 2012 at 12:54 pm #32264
Pacific Daylight Time is Pacific Standard Time right?May 22, 2012 at 12:59 pm #32266May 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm #32282
Pacific Daylight Time is Pacific Standard Time right?
Actually, no. Pacific Standard Time is GMT-8. Pacific Daylight time is GMT-7. Basically, whatever time Fraser is in.May 22, 2012 at 2:23 pm #32292
