Setting Up Minecraft Server? Must Consider The Following Things

Minecraft is an amazing game that you can play in a solo mode as well as in a multiplayer mode. Like any other multiplayer game, the solo mode is good, but it cannot match the amazing qualities and fun that you experience in the multiplayer mode. To play in the multiplayer mode, you have to connect to another computer or computers through the internet. The other computers you are going to connect through are termed as minecraft servers.

The server for the minecraft is present there to help you play the game with other players from all over the world. The server can let thousands of players to play the minecraft game at a single point of time. There are plenty of benefits that you can enjoy if you have minecraft servers of your own.

Things to be kept in mind

If you wish to or want to set up a minecraft server of your own, know that it is not an easy task. Therefore, several things are necessary to be kept under consideration while setting up your minecraft server. The important ones among them are given in the forthcoming points.

  1. Create or pick an appealing theme

The very important thing in a server is the user interface, or we can say that the theme. The theme is of paramount importance and needs to be appealing. You should do thorough research before creating or choosing a theme for your server, and you can carry out a Google search to look for player’s likes and dislikes in the theme of the minecraft servers. You can also choose to go for different theme options for most of the players.

  • Consider the cost

It is not a cheap thing to set up your server on for minecraft, but if you want to set up your server, you will have to bear the cost. The cost of setting up minecraft servers largely depends on the number of players you will allow playing on your server. If you are making the server for a few friends of yours, the cost may not be high, but if you want to make a server for the whole world, you need to get ready to bear high costs.

  • Spawn area

What do you think that the players see when they visit minecraft servers for the first time? The spawn area! Therefore it is very important to have a great and appealing spawn area on your server. When the spawn is appealing and attractive, the players will be interested in staying and exploring more. As we all know that the rules are important, make sure that your spawn area also has the rules clarified in the right place.

The final verdict

The essential considerations for creating your minecraft servers are covered in the above post. We hope that after considering the above-given essentials, you will be able to set up your own as desired.

Spawner and Armor Question

Between the zombie spawner and the skeleton spawner, which is the best for getting enchanted armor? I have ye old farms set up at both. I don’t really care about the odds of armor droping, I’m just going to afk while I read a book and put the book down when my frame rate tanks, so eventually I’ll get something, but if I’m going to sit all day in front of a spawner, I want to make sure it’s the better one.

Note: I actually have two zombie spawner farms, one is set up for normal zombies and the other for Drowned, if that makes a difference.

Edit: answered my own question. It’s been a while since I last played. I forgot that the drowned spawner cause zombies to lose their (enchanted) armor with the armor at full health. Since zombies can have higher quality material than skeletons, I believe zombies/drowned are the best; zombies if you have a looting mending weapon, and drowned if you don’t have a looting mending weapon.

Skeleton farm not working!

We just updated our Minecraft servers and I’m playing on Minecraft 1.14.3 Java edition and I found a skeleton spawner on our map. Then I wanted to create a farm with that one block water then one block with sign kinda elevator so they get up high and fall down and die you guys know what I mean, the classic cheap farm.

But now my issue is, that this elevator thing doesn’t seem to work. The skeletons just won’t get up for some reason.

Is this because of Minecraft updates or is there anything else I can try? We can’t really downgrade our servers…

Resource packs are bugging!

I have been downloading a lot of different resource packs lately, and I’ve run into a problem where some of the custom texture packs aren’t being used by the game and instead the default texture packs are used.

The issue is mainly with mobs, especially those added in the Minecraft 1.14 update. What’s even more strange is that the custom textures are utilized by the game for some of the texture packs, but ignored for some other texture packs.

I’m playing Minecraft on the latest version on Minecraft servers, without using OptiFine mod. My best guess is that abstaining from OptiFine might be messing with something, but I’m not at all certain what’s the issue.

Minecraft audio not working

For some reason whenever I would go play minecraft on my play station 4 and this only happens with minecraft, my audio starts to crackle and pop, sometimes skip when I’m talking in a party with friends.

I’m just curious if this is normal and if anyone else has this issue and if they do and have fixed it maybe could help me fix my problem, because its really annoying trying to play Minecraft and hear the occasional crackling for no good reason.

I’ve already tried settings and I’m wondering if faulty cable could be the reason?

Things to do on a Minecraft Realms

So myself and some friends are kind of at a wall with our realm.

We’ve done pretty much everything there is to do. We killed the ender dragon and started farming him for xp, killed the wither, built a huge living area attached to a village, automated everything and have god armor, tools and weapons.

We love the map though and don’t wanna quit playing it, but there’s basically nothing left to do.

Any suggestions?

We’re on Minecraft Bedrock.

Minecraft Auto Pumpkin farm

I made an automatic pumpkin farm, after going AFK overnight a found a bunch of pumpkins like this, not broken as they should be. (Farm has red stone torch above where pumpkin grows. Which powers the block it’s on, and red stone dust on a block behind it which powers the piston. Pumpkin updates torch.

On Bedrock edition, pumpkins, as well as sugarcane and some other crops, can sometimes grow in-between in-game ticks. If it grows in between ticks, then you won’t receive the block update, as updates only happen every tick. You can read more about this in the wiki. There’s no way around it outside of having a clock or daylight sensor to also power your circuit occasionally to take care of those random occurrences.

I solved this issue myself by having two daylight sensors give out one-tick pulses every time it changed from day to night and night to day. It’s slightly less efficient but it functions more consistently.
