Lets take a moment to talk about lag!

Many of you whine and cry "lag lag lag" and almost always blame it on the server and/or plugins in the server. Well I'm going to set the record straight. While yes server lag is a possibility, most of the time the lag is being generated on your end.

How can this be you aay? simple. Three different ways.

1.  Computer Specs:

When Minecraft was first released it was like linux; you could put it on any ol piece of crap computer and it ran well. Minecraft has evolved and changed immensely since then and with all the changes that have been made it now requires better graphics, processing power and memory.

System Requirments (directly from Mojang):

Tired of whining, so pulled ExtraHardMode Plugin from YASMP.. now let the new whining begin.

Due to immense crying that YASMP was "too hard" to play due to our ExtraHardMode plugin... it is now being removed..  completely..  I'm tired of trying to edit a plugin designed to make the game harder and more interesting, so that it is less hard and less interesting.  Therefor - it is my opinion that's it's both too much work and too much complaining to maintain.  So from here on, the EHM Mod is GONE.

Now we'll have to deal with everyone complaining about how too easy everything is.  Well, y'all made your bed.. now sleep in it.  Enjoy the Pot-Spam the overabundance of all materials from massive and unrestricted farming.

I'm DONE - quitting, and never again going to attempt to modify the minecraft gaming environment to make it less boring.  From here on out, YASMP is going to have the plain old vanilla Minecraft experience...  oh wait, but what's this???  Minecraft 1.5 is coming soon..  and OMG GUESS WHAT -  They are making it HARDER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess y'all are going to have to go cry to Mojang then.  

Read about changes below to: Slightly more nerfed farming, increases in AI combat, skeletons anti-mele and increase range, zombies getting a buff, and more.

I can hear it now: 

>Crying Noob:  "tremor take off these @##$ derp mods that make Minecraft harder.. whaaaaa whaaaaaa..  "

Spleef on YASMP

Spleef is on YASMP! I dont remember us ever having it officially, other than one on YAFB.

This arena is still in the early stages, and may change or upgrade at any time, as we find better ways to do this. So far, we are just winging it, but soon there might be a plugin to handle it all, automatically, which lets people play without needing any admin to supervise it!

Also, as a bonus, since snowball pickups were already blocked, this arena opened up days earlier than expected, and there has been a good turn out.

Have a safe and happy new year.

I just wanted to wish everyone who partakes in the fun at Pwn9 and who will also be partaking in the fun during the New Year's celebration to have fun and be happy, but be safe.  I know most of yuse gusy won't be out and about behind the wheel but for a small section of our gaming community - just ya know, don't be stupid.. I know it's asking a lot but I want to see everyone back here come January 2nd, after you've recovered.

Developing new banning system, ban rules for Minecraft Survival Server.

Ok lets start an honest and strong conversation here..  about cheating on YASMP.  It's going on all over the place and I'll be the first to admit our system for dealing with it is uneven and even perhaps unfair, where we are quick to permaban a whitenamer over a vip, despite the VIP page and rules stating that ther are no exceptions.  I'm going to start with a frame work and you all can lend your opinion.  And we'll see if by the New Year we can have some new anti-cheat rules and ban rules in place.

Minecraft 1.4.6 Update - DONT DO IT Until YASMP Updates!

Hello everyone there is a game update for Minecraft 1.4.6.  This update will break things for servers and make those who update their game unable to connect to Pwn9's Minecraft servers until we update as well.  As usual, the update process can take a week or more.  We urge you that if you wish to continue playing on Pwn9 Minecraft servers to NOT UPDATE until the time in which we say the servers have been updated as well.

 

If you HAVE UPDATED and need to go back.  It's simple.  First get this file:  http://assets.minecraft.net/1_4_5/minecraft.jar

Save that "minecraft.jar" over your existing minecraft jar in the games /bin folder.   Now here is a quick and easy way to get to your bin folder.

1. Open minecraft.

2. On the main screen where it says - "single player" - "multiplayer" - "texture packs"  - CLICK TEXTURE PACKS!

3. On the bottom of the texture pack screen a button says "OPEN TEXTURE PACK FOLDER" -  Click that button.

4. It will open file browser window in the ".minecraft/texturepack" directory.  Browse UP 1 Directory to ".minecraft".

5. Now you should see a "bin" directory.  Open it.

6. Paste minecraft.jar into bin directory.

7. Play older version of minecraft and profit.
