I will be live streaming to YouTube three days a week from now on as my schedule. Those days are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (today, what an interesting development 😉 ) and on the days I work in the afternoon I will be streaming until noon, and on the days I am off, I will be streaming as long as I want to. Occasionally I will be streaming on Saturdays when I feel like it as well, but it isn’t part of the official schedule. 😉 If you want to know when the next stream is, join my Discord server and you will get a notification when I go live.
Next weekend (July 27th – July 29th) is my family reunion, so I doubt I’ll be able to stream anything Friday or Saturday, and maybe something on Sunday evening again. I’ll try to make up for this by streaming in the morning Mon – Thurs (with Thursday being longer as a day off work).
Hey, citizens of CityCraft and visitors to my blog!
Due to the lack of players on the CityCraft server, lack of posts on the CityCraft forums, and active chat in the Discord server, I am severely inclined to shut the Discord server and website down and switch the Minecraft server to a whitelisted one for my Patreon supporters and Twitch subscribers. Unless the CityCraft server becomes more active (as well as the Discord server and the CityCraft forum) soon, I will be doing this.
I do not wish to take this action, but I feel I have no choice in this. I would also be rebooting the CityCraft server and changing the modpack (adding two plugins, one of them a major one in Tinker’s).
Thanks for your time today,
Nathan Pinno (swagnillaice)
PS. If I do take this action, I’ll move the modpack and zip file links here to a password-protected page and give the password only to my subscribers and supporters. That page will also contain a list of the mods my server and I use.
If no one joins me on the CityCraft Minecraft server by the end of the month, I’ll shut down the Discord server and the website, and whitelist the server. I’ll then only grant access to Patreon and Twitch subscribers as a benefit of supporting me (and move the pack and zip file to here to be hosted). I’ll then redo the Discord server as a place for my followers to hang out and chat with me. It’s one thing for people to join the website and the Discord server, but another to join the server. I’d rather play with people than just chat with them.
I’m quite pleased to announce that CityCraft’s Minecraft server will soon be open! I have purchased the hosting (from MCProHosting) and the modpack setup this morning and have submitted the tickets to set up the groups and plugins the server needs. Hopefully, by the end of next week, we will be able to begin playing on the server!
The poll I started Monday ended last night quite clearly – you want more than just Minecraft on my Twitch channel! To honor this result, this week’s poll for Follower Friday has no Minecraft option and is open for a little over two days – another lesson I learned about Twitter polls. Running them for more than one day will get you votes!
Speaking of Minecraft, I added OpenComputers to my mods and to CityCraft – it allows for more options. I just wish the mod OpenSecurity was updated for 1.12.2 as well, as it would make implementing security for places like the mint, banks and other special builds easier. To program the computers to do what I want to be done, I also need to learn the Lua programming language or find a Minecrafter that does and wants to play on the CityCraft server.
I should probably mention here that CityCraft has its own Discord server. I figured one of those would be useful for some instant chat when we are in the game. Voice chat is limited to Citizens and above (Citizens are those who have registered on the forums at citycraft.net.) but it’s a good place if you want to hang out and discuss Minecraft.
I’ve set up a poll on Twitter that will run for 48 hours from the time I launched it that asks if you want my channel on Twitch to focus on Minecraft only, or continue to stream lots of different games and not have a primary game. Please vote in it and let me know what your opinion is – thanks a lot!
I got my first tip today on the same day I got the same person following me on Twitch! Yeah, it’s just a dollar, but it’s the value that I was tipped and someone appreciated the work that I put into my live streams. Of course, no one voted on this week’s poll on Twitter, so I got to choose the game I wanted to play. I’m going to do another live stream this evening because I want to remake my tools (lost it first to a fall from a high place including an elevator block – a lot of work went into that – then to lava when I fell in) and I’m so happy over getting my first tip plus I’ll probably be playing this world a lot less after the CityCraft server goes live.
