Offering a spare server - Greaper88 - 01-04-2020

I registered just to offer this:
Would it be useful for development to have an actual server?
I have a spare machine running Windows 7 x64 that i could setup FTP and an auto-restart script to run a server. I can change the OS if necessary, it's just sitting on my MC servers rack powered off right now.
The specs are :
CPU: i5 3550S, quad core 3.0 GHz
RAM: 16GB DDR3
OS: Currently Windows 7 x64
Disk: 240GB SATA III SSD
Network: Google Fiber: Gigabit upload and download.

Hello, welcome to the forum.

I've split your message from the somewhat illogical thread into a separate one.

Thanks for the offer. I don't think such a machine would help the actual development - all of the devs run their dev servers on their machines, I can't imagine a scenario where I would need a separate server. However, if you can keep such a server running for the public, so that we could have an example server for anyone to check out, that would be useful.

I could do that, but I would certainly need help with the build process if running anything other than the 1.12 release.


RE: Offering a spare server - xoft - 01-04-2020

The idea would be to have an auto-update script that would pull the newest official build (no need to build one yourself), clear the world folder (so that any griefing is undone) and (re)start the server; perhaps daily or twice a day.

I think we could make a very simple plugin that would announce the server restart some time ahead, then terminate the server, so an outer script can update it and re-run it.

sounds good

Here's the simple plugin to shut the server down after a preconfigured time interval:

(might be useful for others, too)

Server is online. Here's the setup:
Server world will be reset every 12 hours! You get to keep your inventory, and that is is all.
What can you accomplish in the limited timeframe? Take vids and screenshots Smile

P.S. You will spawn back in where you signed out, so don't logoff in a dug out hole/tunnel!

server: "greaper88.ddns.us:25585"

Thanks. Can we post the server on the homepage as the test server?
