I have updated my games and Peaceful Pack

I have updated the page on my blog that list my games with my newest purchases from Steam. (Consider sending me a friend request there!) I’ll eventually do series with both Project Highrise and Stardew Valley for my YouTube channel; I just want to finish my current series in Banished first.

I have also updated the page that lists the mods I use in my Peaceful Pack. As I do not know what I want to be the main focus of a new series in Minecraft or a good name for it, the videos I am releasing next week will all be for my Swagtown series, except for Monday’s video, which is an end of series announcement video shot in my world that I am not usually recording or streaming from. It wasn’t an easy decision to make to end my first Minecraft series, but it was in line with what I have always said I will do – no off-camera work for my YouTube videos.

I’ll be live streaming tonight and tomorrow night…

I will be live streaming to my Twitch channel tonight and tomorrow night at 11 PM and at 2 AM (both times are based in the America/Edmonton time zone). Each live stream will last for about two hours and that will be the schedule for my live streaming going forward. More likely than not, I will be streaming Minecraft – sometimes from a server called Chipping Blocks (a survival server on hard mode) and sometimes from a streamable game I’ve created for the Peaceful Pack I play through as a series on my YouTube channel.

Looking at Shutting Down parts of CityCraft

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 theĀ  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

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.

You said it – More Games On The Twitch Channel

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.
