Whiskey Media's Official Minecraft Server

Server status: [Online]

HEY EVERYONE X2, FUCK

Server is brand new again! Again! And again!

SERVER RULES

  • Must be 18 or older.
  • Must be a member of Giant Bomb. Must have been a member for more than a month. Don't tell your cousin's nephew about the server; I won't add him. Ask me, and maybe I'll make an exception. They still need to be 18 or older.
  • Don't touch other people's things unless given permission by them.
  • Do not build view-destroying sky castles or sky bridges.[1]
  • Don't pour lava from high places, it's ugly and difficult to manage. Don't build your name out of blocks. Don't build a giant stickman taking a piss. Don't build something really out-of-character near or in someone's themed town.[2]
  • Do not attempt to deconstruct others' works if you feel they have broken the rules. Tell me, then I'll look into it.
  • Do not pester or bully new users.
  • Do not burn trees down. Fire spreads.
  • If you leave the server for over a month and have a project that is unfinished and that blocks usable space, then it will be taken down, unless a sign is erected saying when you will be back.
  • Minecart tracks are to be built at least 15 blocks underground, so as to not disrupt the view or clutter up possible building space (kinda like the real world), unless your project makes more sense above ground. Ask if you're unsure.
  • Portals do indeed work, and they take you to the Nether, but please refrain form building too many. There are a couple set up in each major city, but too many and things will get out of control.
  • Have common sense.

[1]
If you're wondering why there's a rule against this, it comes from me playing the game awhile. Basically: every new user wants to create a floating city, or a railway, or an air-bridge, or a floating castle. In moderation, they could be great (and yours could be one of the good ones), but in reality, every single person has given up on them, in the process creating a really generic hunk of view-destroying rock. It's basically just me trying to keep the server looking nice.
[2]
This may seem confusing at first. Basically, you can build wherever you want, as long as there's room, and as long as you don't disturb anyone's stuff. If you're unsure about building something somewhere, just ask around.

How to Get in

  • Read the rules above. Private message me questions if you have them.
  • I'd prefer a private message, but you could just comment here and request to be whitelisted. Make sure you tell me your Minecraft name!
  • Put 207.210.253.107 into the "Multiplayer" section from Minecraft's main menu; put whatever you want for the name of the server.

It works.

Posted by Azteck

In the server right now. So far it seems to work, albeit very dead.

Posted by FunExplosions
@CowMuffins: Awesome. Just got back. Saw that a couple people joined. 
 
Just tried to reset the server, but apparently I can't. I may try to figure out how if people are disliking the current... state of things. 
 
...But I'm playing right now, if anyone wants to join.
Posted by FunExplosions
@Azteck: Hah. I saw that you were in there as soon as I shut down the server to try to reset it. ...Sorry bout that. It's back up now.

No worries. Was just looking around anyway. Was actually idling when you shut it down.

Update: Server now has boats. EVERYWHERE. 
 
Join while the madness is still minimal!

JOINING

Posted by FunExplosions

 Free boats
Posted by LordAndrew

It's true, explosions are fun.

Posted by bibamatt

Doing some good blowin' up.

Posted by bibamatt

FUN TIMES HAD BY ALL!   
 
We made some big holes, we made said holes bigger. 
 
Can't wait to get CREATIVE (beyond just blowing shit up).

Posted by LordAndrew

I enjoyed playing on the server today. Lots of explosions. I was CharlieTunoku, by the way.

Posted by Mmmslash

I would very much like to also break things!

Posted by qwerty000106

i cant connect :(

Posted by FunExplosions
@Mmmslash:  
@qwerty000106:  
It's up! 
 
I had to reset the server and start from scratch. We pretty much destroyed any possible canvas for creativity. ...It was really fun, though. 
 
I want this new server to be more creative... and less destructive. But, again, I'll let you guys all decide where it goes.
Posted by bibamatt

I can't get in - failing to connect...

Posted by Killroycantkill

I tried to join but it won't let me connect.

Posted by LordAndrew
@FunExplosions: It will go destructive. There's no way around it. Explosions are fun. But there was creativity yesterday too. Creativity and lots of lava.
 
Can we make another huge staircase down to the bedrock, or is that considered too destructive?
Posted by bibamatt

Crikey, I miss the destruction mad GB server!  Just had a little play on the Rawcritics server and got gang-abused for not understanding all the millions of rules.  Apparently you're not allowed to ask for directions, give directions or SPEAK THE NAMES OF SHRINES.  I spoke the name of a shrine and got a million 'WTF WTF' and '*facepalm*'s.  ER, SORRY GUYS.

@bibamatt:  @LordAndrew:  @Killroycantkill:  @bibamatt:  
Crap. I think you guys tried to join just now? I had it down for a couple minutes. Try again, if you're available. If you can't get in, could you do me a big favor and post what time you were trying to connect at? I hate that you can't see post times in blogs. 
 
Edit:  
@LordAndrew: Hah, yeah, I imagine it will. And that staircase was awesome. I feel like the random lava sky pillar and numerous gigantic holes in the mountains (and water) kind of ruined how awesome the good things were. This is it, though. This server will be the only one, unless someone griefs it, of course.

I'm trying to connect at 3:45 pm PDT

Same here.
Posted by Mmmslash

I definitely cannot connect to it.

Posted by bibamatt

Will try in a sec - just finishing a game of Reach.

Posted by FunExplosions
@Mmmslash: @InfamousBIG:  
Damn. I think the settings might have changed. Try the IP address:  76.173.30.66: 56150 
If that doesn't work, I'm going to shut it down for awhile until I figure it out.
Posted by InfamousBIG
@FunExplosions: ...nope.  Timed out.

@InfamousBIG: Shit. 
 
Alright, everyone. It's 4 o' clock here. I'm gonna say the functioning server will be up by 6, if anyone wants to give it another go. I'm gonna go take a break from this headache for a half-hour.

I'll give it a try later on. If you see someone who looks like a TF2 Engineer, say hello!
Posted by InfamousBIG
@FunExplosions: Awesome, just when I have to leave my house for payback night at work.  FFFFFFUUUUU
Posted by Killroycantkill

Hey, I tried to get on at 4:13 EST. It timed out this time instead of just not letting me connect at all.

Edited by FunExplosions

Server is up! It should be working for you guys just fine. Now let the chaos commence!

Posted by LordAndrew

Entering now.

Posted by Aaox
The goddamn ethereal adventures of Aaox in a boat on grass will continue as soon as I rejoin.
Edited by eccentrix

This is great. On the creative side of things, we need to make some balls of steel. Bigger than Tested's balls, if they're still standing.
 
Edit: I just opped someone, it works. I'm wheedler, btw.
 
Edit: Not sure how big Tested's balls are.

 Nukem. My name's Duke Nukem.
Posted by LordAndrew

Is something up with the server right now? I can't get in.

Posted by FunExplosions
@LordAndrew: Weird. I'm in right now. that might explain the emptiness. Try again. Tell me what the error message is if it still doesn't work.
Posted by LordAndrew

Failed to connect to the server
Connection timed out: connect
 
I was just in the Tested server, so I'm pretty sure it's not a problem on my end.

Posted by SumDeus

I'd like to join if you can get it to work.

Posted by FunExplosions
@LordAndrew: @SumDeus:  
Hmm. Damn. I'm gonna reset my internet connection. Try again in five minutes, and hopefully it'll be fixed.
Posted by FunExplosions
@LordAndrew: @SumDeus: K. It just went up again. Give it a go. 
 
 
@eccentrix: Thanks for letting me know. Is that your house, by the way?
Posted by SumDeus

Still no luck, duder.

Posted by LordAndrew

I'm going to hang out with Yosuke for a bit and try again later.

Posted by FunExplosions
@SumDeus: @LordAndrew:  
I think I know what it is. I'm fixing it now. It should be working in a few minutes. I just need to re-forward my ports.
Posted by LordAndrew

Yep, I'm in. Come on in, folks!

Posted by eccentrix

Our balls are so big they crash servers.

Posted by LordAndrew

I see you guys finished the first ball after I left. How long did it take? Did you get additional help?

Posted by BraveToaster

So is this official server #2?

Edited by FunExplosions
@Axxol: Only functional one. 
 
@LordAndrew: A long ass time 
 
And I just saw that it disconnected you. It said "Outdated client." ...Or did you just log off? 
 
Edit: Nevermind. I needed to download the new server client thing. It works.
Posted by LordAndrew
@FunExplosions: I tried to connect, and it told me my client was outdated. It didn't kick me off the server. Technically it was the server that was outdated, as I had updated just before trying to get in.
