I can't connect, so here's some stuff from when I could:
 
  

  

 I just like it when this happens.

@eccentrix: Hahah. Awesome. Your computer did slightly better than mine does during those blasts. And try to get in now, if you want. Don't know what the problem was, but it should work now. 
 
And your dirt house is looking pretty spiffy these days.

On tonight's episode, FunExplosions gets an expected visit from an old friend. But will they still be able to get along?

Spoiler alert: Yes


#54 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

I discovered something shocking about Vacation Island today. But then the problem resolved itself.

You know what I like about the Island Committee? They don't ask questions.

#55 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@LordAndrew: I don't even know where that is. Did we explode it?
#56 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

It's on an island that I had decided to call Vacation Island. I later realized that it wasn't as island-like as I had initially thought, so I decided to fix it. Not by changing its name, but by making it an island.
 
I don't know if anyone else has ever been there.

#57 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

I've been to Vacation Island, and I too wondered about its status as an island. I'm glad this issue has been resolved.

#58 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

I posted some videos in the original post. Things get weird.

Secret lava base will remain hidden... probably even from us.

I'm really sorry about blowing up that stairwell... 
 
 
Also, the server seems to have gone down.

#60 Posted by FCKSNAP (2299 posts) -

I wanna join, but apparently the server is down...

#61 Posted by YoctoYotta (541 posts) -

#62 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

Wow.

#63 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

I'm joining now. I hope the server is up! MR. FUNEXPLOSIONS

#64 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

Oh right, this thing. Count me in, again.

#65 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Can't believe I haven't been on this since you started it afresh!  Jumping on now!

#66 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -
@bibamatt: Man, that seems like so long ago now! We've come a long way, baby.
#67 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

Felt the need to display my creation to this world. My gigantic computer-hating lavafall.
#68 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

Is the server down or something? I can't seem to connect..

#69 Posted by bluephoenixmedia (42 posts) -

good times, they need to have a quick look for this

#70 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Put up the video of the house trap.

#71 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

  

  Quoted for greater justice. This was amazing.
#72 Posted by Shademonger (147 posts) -

Oh my gawd, WHAT DID I DO?! That was a really confusing experience, but much more hilarious to see it from the other side.

#73 Posted by Mageknight (124 posts) -

Is the server still down? I'm timing out on connect.

#74 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

It takes a few hours for me to upload to YouTube, so I'll upload Burning Man tonight.

Thanks. A couple people connected while I was asleep, but apparently it did go down. It's up again. 
 
For clarification: the reason it goes down and I don't know about it, is because my internal ip address intermittently switches out a "3" and "0" on its end. I don't know why, but every time this happens I need to re-forward the ports, so that outsiders can access the server. If anyone knows how I can remedy this, I'd greatly appreciate it.
#76 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Really enjoyed the bit I played last night!  My internet was all over the place, so I had to leave at one point as my connection was making everything go bananas.  Will hopefully be popping on later to continue my work on The Pit if anyone's around?  I made my little brick house (very basic at the mo) and started work on the glasshouse that juts out the back, inside the waterfall. 
 
Can't wait to see how work has progressed since I logged off!

#77 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

I can't upload the Burning Man video because the file's too big. However, I have set up another man for whoever gets there first to burn. Just the one with torches, though, not the proposing one.

It has recently come to my attention that this CONSUMED MY WALL. Madness. Only liquid fire can break the binds of Hell.

Seriously? Err.. sorry 'bout that, man
#80 Posted by PufferFiz (1384 posts) -

says you have an outdated client? :C

#81 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -
@PufferFiz: It's saying that you have an outdated client. Because your client version doesn't match what the server expects. Was there another update? The server doesn't know about it, so it assumes your client is out of date. Hopefully that gets fixed so the server doesn't always assume the client is outdated when it's actually more recent.

I think my minecraft updated when I booted it today. Not sure if it was yesterday or today though.
#83 Posted by PufferFiz (1384 posts) -

aaahh ok so I was messing with some mods and I didn't release I reverted back to a different version of the client. Thanks for pointing that out.

#84 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

So you actually were outdated? I didn't realize you could revert back to a previous  version. :D

#85 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

"I was going to ask why there were giant balls of steel everywhere, but I think I just answered my own question."
My favorite quote.

well I didn't release the back up jar files that I made where that of an older version, and for some reason it didn't update itself. But I had another back up I didn't know I had that was the newest version.
#87 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

So how many people would be willing to donate to this server, and how much?

#88 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

I'd donate.  How much would be needed?  I guess I'd donate an equal amount to everyone else.

#89 Edited by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

It depends on whether FunExplosions wants to continue or whether we want to go dedicated. Maybe find out where the majority of our users are located to reduce ping? I know there are more UK Whiskey users than anywhere else.

#90 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Well I'm UK!

I'm not sure if there really are more UK. I'm sure the US has the strongest hold in Giant Bomb, although the UK seems to be the strongest in the server. I'm down with whatever. I'd imagine the split is even enough that it really wouldn't matter where the server was. 
 
So yeah, people, if you're down to donate towards a new server, PM me and let me know. I'll add each subsequent person to the PM. I'll make a list of names and divide the cost to give you guys an estimate. I obviously won't commit to anything without letting you all know. Maybe we could have some kind of build-off to vie for co-ownership of the new server. 
 
For clarification: The new server will not erase the old level. It will simply provide with a stable and near lag-free environment.
#92 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

I'm Canadianesque. Giant Bomb seems to be American primarily, with folks from the UK coming in second.
 
What sort of costs would we be looking at for a dedicated server? I'd be cool with donating some moneys, maybe.

#93 Posted by YoctoYotta (541 posts) -

Fixed up some bleachers and a home team locker room for the sweet ball field some other hard working folks built.



#94 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@YoctoYotta: Holy shit, man. Those bleachers are out of control.
#95 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Ridiculously good stuff, Yocto.

#96 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

Server's timing out. :(

#97 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@LordAndrew: Server had apparently been down all night while I was sleeping. Damn college kids and their frivolous use of my internets.
#98 Posted by eccentrix (1608 posts) -

I still cannot connect.

#99 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@eccentrix: I promise. It's actually working now. I wish I could have the damn thing tell me when it feels like switching my internal ip address out of nowhere.

added a sign on the front of the stadium, if you helped build it, add your name or make a new sign next to it.
