"Yes, we’re being bought by Microsoft"
https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/

No big deal. Minecraft had some really good years. Now with this legal crap for Bukkit / Spigot we would not see any kind of build server update due to the lack plugins updates I doubt there will be much of a future for Minecraft in our lives.

But don't give up. There is so many wonderful games out there now and coming in the future. I think we are more of a family and a pretty decent sandbox / open world gaming community that I think we should consider keeping on that path.

So if you have suggestions or games that might be coming in the future that might be worth keeping our eyes on it then please do share.

I think the biggest ones will be:
Space Engineers
Factorio
7 Ways to Die
GTA 5 (If PC Users can run their own servers there is so much that will happen here)
No Mans Skies
Scam Citizen
Elite Dangerous (When there is more then just flying)

And many many more to keep our eyes on!

Big runner up for a more Sandbox creative game for Minecraft to create some amazing stuff would be Blockscape. Amazing developer I think be worth checking it out now that its on steam. Might have a good future and 100x better looking Minecraft like game for people who are more into building.

Kane's Let's Play Series:
I also sometimes stream via Twitch:
http://twitch.tv/stonelegion

This has to be one of the most fun Building / RTS Like game I found in the longest time. Reminds me of old school RTS Games with all the building and a mix of Minecraft automation more like on our first Industrial Server where we had massive factories.

Please note the demo is worth checking out though it does not show you the big picture in the end. But teaches you the basics. There is 100's of more features and unlimited sized worlds to explore and conquer.



Demo: http://www.factorio.com/demo/experimental
Website: http://www.factorio.com/
Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/
Wiki: www.forums.com/wiki/
Mods: http://www.factorioforums.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=9e2e64fd064a3483306d61814726c1d3

Give the Demo a try it has 3 levels. As far as I know the full game has unlimited procedural generated world to explore.

Here is some really good thing I found that shows you more advance game play but also very helpful.

Bukkit & Spigot has been DMCA'd and as Cauldron uses Spigot/Bukkit might as well call it DMCA'd as well.

From what I gathered this is up and down information but Mojang acquired bukkit ages ago. The thing is that Bukkit is not an Organization, Group, Company, Etc. I think it ran on a basic licensing and therefore could not be legally sold to Mojang.

Long Story short Wolverness has filed a DMCA against Bukkit and Spigot due to his contribution and feeling violated that his work was being stolen.

At this point it is to early to tell if Server owners will ever be targeted. I assume at this time it will only be Bukkit/Spigot/Cauldron but in the future Server owners might also be harassed with a DMCA as well.

So there you have it... Wolverness is not to be blamed though I miss more old school modding where no one really owns anything but to be fair this is not any kind of basic modding as well. This is years and years of work and sweat put into this stuff just to provide the plugin/modding framework that we have expected to be the norm.

So we decided to create a Gaming House or for lame sake a Gaming Apartment.

Ideas we have so far:
  • 3 Guys...........................
  • Camera in the Kitchen to watch Kane Burn the house down...........
  • 24/7 Streaming
  • 3 Cameras on each PC
  • 1 Camera over looking the gaming room
  • MMORPG's, RPG's, Indie Games, Anything and everything!
  • Nightbot for epic trolling!
  • Events like going shopping and live streaming!
  • Console Gaming (PS3) Maybe others at a later date.
So you guys tell us if you have suggestions or ideas. We like to make this a really serious thing and take it to the ultimate level.

Connection:


We also will be taking it to the next level and trying to run our own RTMP Server where we can have even people in our community being able to connect and live stream remotely and be part of our lan party from far away like you were there with us! Will have more information on this down the road.

Welcome to Stone Legion's Faction Based Light PvP Pitch Black Server. Before considering to play with us you must have an Active VIP Membership To Join us. After that just post your Steam Profile here and will add you to the group.



What is the point of this server?
  • To have fun and to enjoy Space Engineers.
  • To add some basic mod support and try out some the unique mods on the Internet.
  • To change the entire starting of the game with a safe starting station.
  • To add light PvP into the game.
World Map:
[​IMG]

Server Rules:
  • No PvP In The Green Safezone Ever! Permission or not we don't want accidents.
  • No Snipping into or from the PvP/PvE Zone!
  • No Spawning in a Spawn Ship. You may only spawn at Spawn Station or a Cloning Facility you and your friends have made.
  • No Looting, No Stealing, No hacking, No Drilling, No Grinding down other players ships. Mostly just ship to ship combat and tiny pee shooter vs ship is fine if you have the balls.
Restrictions / Caps:
  • 2 Refineries
  • 2 Assemblers
  • 9 Small Drills
  • 4 Welders
  • 4 Grinders
Why the Restrictions and Caps?
The idea here is to prolong the game by adding Roleplaying rules to the game. This makes the game last longer and our hope is to have a stable server that does not end up lasting weeks but months! If you feel like someone might be abusing or could abuse something then let us know and we can add restrictions to it. It's sad we need to add them in the first place but some people have no self control.

Basic World Settings:
  • Survival
  • Inventory Size x10
  • Assembler Efficiency x3
  • Refinery Speed x3
  • Welding Speed x5
  • Grinding Speed x5
  • Max Objects 1024
  • Asteroid Count 4 (We add new ones overtime)
  • Weapons Enabled
  • Show Player Names Disabled
  • Thruster Damaged Enabled

Installed Mods:

To Connect to the server faster create a Desktop Shortcut. Right click Desktop and go to New > Shortcut and copy/paste the code below exactly.
Code:
steam://connect/198.23.176.173:27015
With the new small asteroids we will keep spawning new ones when there is less then 25% of all the asteroids left. This will make it a bit more of a challenge and also a need to completely wipe out asteroids :)

Massive Side effect to all this is per Asteroid saving has gone from about 15 Seconds to 1.5 Second each.
