Smile Minecraft Servers

Heya,

I was wondering what minecraft servers (classic or alpha) toggies usually frequent, or whether we had one of our own. I bought the alpha version which has a really nice survival single player mode, and would like to play multiplayer and build somewhere with tog ppl.

My daughter is addicted to minecraft classic.
I'd prefer she played on a TOG run server personally.

I purchased the alpha but not worked out how to get on a server yet.

Tried starting up a server but fails to allow connection.

At the moment the only way to connect to a minecraft alpha server is to plug in an existing ip that you know of. Probably the best way to go is to check out the server list here: Minecraft Survival Alpha Server List . People also advertise their servers and various mods on the Index page - Minecraft Forum - Official Minecraft Forums forums.

I've just started playing on Kateana's server (http://www.kateanas.com) because it's a fresh island world and based in Sydney, so there's plenty of potential to build.

Having said that, I'm happy to host a minecraft alpha server for tog if we have enough interest for this.

I bought the Alpha version yesterday. This game is incredible! I'm loving it.

I'll try the Kateanas server. Haven't played multiplayer yet. My game name is Splat01.

Add me to the list of interested persons. I'll be buying it as soon as the server issues are sorted out. Would much rather be playing with others than lurking in a dark hole fiddling about alone...

Cool

For those who are playing or thinking of playing in Kateana's server, here's a map of the built areas:


Pls note that that the above image accounts for maybe 2% of the entire world map, with a huge amount of empty land to mine and build on.

That probably means us toggies can build our own town if we like anywhere either to the south or north of the spawn town if we want to. There is a medieval theme which is great, because trees and cobblestone are in such huge supplies. I'll post up some more pics later.

Sounds interesting, I hope the ping from Sweden isn't too high

Only problem Fate is that they are no longer accepting applications for access.

Which sucks as I'd really like to get stuck into a server with a good, active community.

Yeah I saw that too. Perhaps we just need a TOG and friends one. It's a moot point at the moment isn't it? Or can we still MP without the master server or whatever it is?

Sadly it seems I decided to give it a try too late! After hearing about it for so long I finally took the plunge and seems everything is broken. I'll definitely be purchasing once everything is sorted and would love to play on a TOG run server.
Until that time I'll continue cowering in my cave alone.
