Minecraft

Okay, I’ll do it!

I’ve gotten so many hits from Google lately from searches like “minecraft terraria texture pack” since I wrote my Terraria review and Nekoyoubi Texture Pack update and my front page aggregated them together.

Amazingly enough though, while there’s a request out there on the Minecraft forum (I’m at work, so I didn’t read the post), I’m not seeing Google point to anyone’s pack.

Fine. Whatever. I’ll do it. 😉

When I get home tonight, I will start working on a Terraria texture pack for Minecraft. I should be able to post “something” tonight, but it may not be complete (reads: “I may not be done adding stuff to it”) for some time, but I can get us a start going.

While I <3 my own texture pack, I do think it would be kind of cool to pull Terraria into Minecraft. Sorry all you “Terraria-is-just-a-Minecraft-ripoff”-kids, I know it must be rough for you to know that people actually like both games. /shockedpanda

Also, sorry if you want HD, but I don’t play that. It’ll be a 16² texture pack, as I don’t like broken water/lava.

My Minecraft Texture Pack…

I’ve had this for a while, but apparently forgot to post until now. ;Þ

If you play Minecraft, give my texture pack a whirl. The people who’ve been using it for a while seem to like it, so who knows!

You can see its post on the official Minecraft forums here:

And you can download it from this link here: http://bit.ly/nekoyoubitp

Let me know what you think if you get a chance.

I don’t work on this that often (as I don’t have as much time as I’d like with work and my game development, but I do try to keep it updated with the patches. As of right now (1.5_01) it is up-to-date.

Oh, I almost forgot… here are a couple of preview screenshots:

McMyAdmin “ping” issue…

So you’ve got McMyAdmin running a CraftBukkit server and you use the Essentials plugin and all of the sudden, once per minute, you start getting these crazy ping messages:

[31mError: Only in-game players can use ping.

While otherwise annoying (for log/chat review purposes), they don’t really cause any damage.

This happens because McMyAdmin has its own set of commands that it likes to use with the server; things that are not there by default, but that McMyAdmin adds for you. One of the things that it adds is a /ping command. The problem is that Essentials adds one too, and its /ping is more picky than the one added by McMyAdmin.

Resolution? Simple.

  1. Stop your server (through McMyAdmin).
  2. Open up the Essentials.jar in an archive viewer (like 7-Zip).
  3. Open the plugin.yml file for editing (press F4 in 7-Zip).
  4. Somewhere around line 94 you’ll see this:
    ping:
       description: Pong!
       usage: /
       alias: pong

    Destroy it! Just chop those lines right out of the file.

  5. Save the file and commit it back to the .jar.
  6. Upload it back to your server.
  7. Start your server.
  8. Enjoy the silence.
