Regarding the server: I recommend http://www.nitrado.net
. 10 Slots, 365 days => 97,00 EUR. Thus each player should donate 10 EUR.
Had a quick look at nitrado prices seem reasonable.
- 10 slots does the mean 10 players max at any time? Ifso ... somehow I get the feeling this will not be enough (11 votes already if I count the maybes as yes).
- If I get a sever with 10 slots, will I be able to upgrade later or will I be stuck with 10 slots for the duration for the contract?
Perhaps I could start renting for one month, then three and after that a year to see and decide after that
- So far I see preferences for Vanilla, FTB, Tekkit and I do like my own modpack too (I found a larger one and threw in a bit untill it stopped working; I then removed the last one I added added et voila.). Can I run two of these at the same time on the same server or do I need two servers for that?
I have seen that using nitrado I can swap between 70 games, I would not mind doing this between Vanilla and a few other versions every so often depending on who is online and who is not (or just every few days on a fixed shedule).
- Passwords ... can I instead just whitelist ... maybe that would be easier to keep unwanted guests out and removing the need to remember another password, there are so many passwords and codes I already need to remember in life (can't even remember the code on my ID atm; good that it expires soon, roflol)
Detail, details .. but yeah I still have few unanswered questions remaing; I never ever ran a server before (besides a quick OpenTTD test on my lan). Yay I will learn something new soon.
I've been playing a lot of FtB Ultimate on my friend's server recently, but i'm always alone on it so it's a bit boring. I highly recommend FtB though - Thaumcraft in particular is devilishly fun.
I hope that mine will be a little busier, welcome to you too.
Is your friends server that calm at all times? Maybe he can transfer it to me (I will pay for it if the price is right) to get us started and give me a better idea on what we actually need in the end?
May I ask the people that anwsered maybe to give the reason for not voting yes?
I can fully understand if you're not sure if you will have time but if your reason is the choice between vanilla or modded swapping at regular intervals is a solution.
