Tutorial Thursday! How to setup a Minecraft Server!


Welcome – this is my first Tutorial for Thursday! I will be showing all of you how to set up and run a Minecraft server.

1. Go to the download Minecraft page on Minecraft.net

2. Dowload the server program and save it on your descktop.

3. Create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Put the server program in the new folder.

5. When you open the folder again, you should see some new stuff has been added. Find a file called eula.

6. In the eula file, remove the word false and replace it with the word truth.

7. Click Win+R

8. In the window that opened, type in cmd.

9. You should now see a black screen that looks like something from an old PC. Type in ipconfig and press enter.

10.You should now see some more text and some lines of numbers on the right. Look for a number that is labeld as Ipv4 address. The number should have this format: xxx.xxx.x.xx. This is your internal ip.

11. Click on the server program. A new window should open.

13. Go to Multiplayer in Minecraft, click direct connect, and type in the number you got. The world you will connect is your very own server.

12. In your server folder, go to a file called server properties. That is where you can alter your world settings. Use it to create a start-up you are happy with.

14. You can now connect to your server but no one else can. First you have to port forward. This means letting your router what to do with all the traffic. Go to the website of your internet provider, click port forward, and log in. Where it says port, type in 25565 and where it says ip, type the ip you found out earlier or select it from a list if you are presented with one.

15. Now go to what’smyip.com and there you should see your external ip. That is the ip your friends will need to connect to your server.

16. If you are creating a server for everyone and not just some friends, you will need a domain. Go to no-ip.com, create an account, and click manage domains. Create your custom domain and make sure it is linked to your external ip (no-ip should automatically detect it and type it in for you) .

17. Done!

I hope this helps! If you have created a public server, thanks to this blog please leave the ip below, I would love to check it out! In my next post, I’ll share how to prevent people from using Minecraft hacks and reaping havoc on your server!

Why cheat in Video games?


Once in a while, you just can’t beat a game. Maybe it is the fault of the game — poor game design can make some endeavors impossible to finish. No matter the cause, you may come to the final outcome that there is just one way you’ll ever complete the game: you will need to cheat.

Cheating in video games has been around almost as long as video games themselves. After all, video games are actually merely lines of programming code. If you understand what you are doing and possess the proper equipment, you can insert a few lines of code and get a challenging game a cinch to complete. But not everybody has the skills while at the same time making sure the game remains playable to change code.

It is important to remember this, too: Not all cheats give the player an advantage in the match. Some cheat codes really make games more challenging by reducing a player character’s resistance to damage or making opponents rougher. Others give you unusual skills not generally found in the game like the capacity to fly or walk through walls. And some create often hilarious and unusual — — cosmetic developments to the game world.

There are many different methods. Not every method works with every game. Cheating in a console game may be very different than cheating in a computer game. Online play adds an entirely fresh set of challenges as well as ethical questions. You are really only changing your own expertise in the event you are cheating at one player game. Cheating on-line means you could possibly be affecting other players. Most online game communities aren’t very fond of cheaters.

The word “cheat” carries with it a blot. It gets us think of idle people who aren’t unwilling to place in the hard work necessary to succeed. But that’s not true for every man. Let’s look at the various strategies to cheating in video games.
