Server address: 184.108.40.206:25590 (I have no idea if this is fixed or not, it could change. If yes, I kindly ask an admin to give me the rights of editing this first post every now and then)
- Location: Strasbourg(France)(Hosthavoc servers): I got about 45ms ping, I also pinged one of their servers from USA and got about 100ms, so this will be playable( I'm sorry for Australians though... maybe someday we'll have servers literally in the clouds and combined with fast satellite links the ping will go down)
- Memory: 1GB. This should be enough for 10-15 players. There was a cheaper option with 512mb, but I'm playing it safe even though we won't play so much on the server
The monthly cost is 5$ for these specs but I paid using litecoins. Since I'm not going to continuously pay myself for this server, I've set up a litecoin address and a bitcoin address where you can send the coins if you wish to support the server. Here's a link to a text file containing both the addresses:Litecoin and Bitcoin addresses
This is much easier than using paypal and other services. For this particular matter I ask that you also write a "description" for your transaction if the wallet/service allows you, saying something like "for twhl server from #name# xoxoxo much love", and also announce me through a PM or here on the forum. Please do not send more than necessary
, the idea is to support the server and if 3-4 guys donate like a $1 or something, it should be enough. I will not be chasing people trying to send them back the money, this is purely for supporting the server.
The next payment will be on 15th April, I think. I haven't done this before, so bear with me( I also do not guarantee I'm going to be 24/24 solving a problem if one arises, I have a very busy schedule and will mostly only be able to play in weekends).
There are some additional features that I haven't bought because we don't know how involved people will be yet. For example, at +$2.5
we can get a custom DNS, and +4.15$
a dedicated IP. So that would be a total of $11.65
monthly. So if you guys are willing to share the wallet load, yeah we can do this.
Right now the server is pretty much vanilla survival( I actually like it), but there's a crap load of bukkit plugins that can be installed. Not going to stay and configure it this day, but the first thing I'm looking for is adding teleportation somehow.
Since this is a server dedicated to our community, do you guys think we need anti-grief? I mean, I think there's a bit of trust here :).
Anyway, I'm expecting some fellow shouters' here like Tetsu0, DiscoStu and Angry Carrot(a.k.a Mighty Atom a.k.a MuzzleFlash). And a dozen other players I remember playing in the past :D.
