If only I knew how to get started, do you know if the source code for the server side is available somewhere?

I wanted to try making my own, since I know Java :x

hey dark, do you think you could make a mega server for a very little while? I have an idea for a map that requires a lot of space, and you're the only one I think who can do that. The admin of the Archives can archive it, so you only need to keep it up for him to copy it.

something like 512(long) by 100(tall) to 200(wide)

I would be grateful if you could do this. :)

Last time I checked, the maps need to have the same width and length and all 3 (width, length, height) need to be powers of 2.

Didn't know that... then could it be 512x512x256 perhaps?

They don't need to be perfect squares. Rectangle maps work just fine.

Once I get my computer back, yes. Right now this one can't even play Minecraft, let alone host.

Also, 512x512x256 isn't possible, uses too many blocks, here are some possibilities:

64x64x8192 = 33,554,432 blocks
128x128x2048 = 33,554,432 blocks
256x256x512 = 33,554,432 blocks
512x512x128 = 33,554,432 blocks
1024x1024x32 = 33,554,432 blocks
2048x2048x8 = 33,554,432 blocks

Basically anything where width*length*height = 33,554,432 or less.
And as I've stated before, width and length need to be the same and all 3 need to be powers of 2.

They don't need to be perfect squares. Rectangle maps work just fine.

Really? last time I tried something other than width=length it would crash.

O.o That's strange.

But yeah I run a rectangle flatgrass server sometimes, so I know it works.

Maybe it was fixed in a newer version of Minecraft.

That skeleton has a very thin spine. That means you can make parts of characters transparent! :)

Is the mining delay and the resource sytem only in survival mode?

If not, that really sucks.
