Thinking of running a modded server

I'm thinking of renting a VPS and running a modded Minecraft server. Mostly for my own amusement but if any trickery.net folks are interested I'd love to have more people playing on it. To that end.

1) Anyone interested?
2) If so, any preference on mods, general server setup, etc?
3) Any VPS recommendations? There seems to be a lot of bad providers out there.

You know how CPU hungry it is, I would have thought you'd need to throw a lot of moola at a VPS to get it to perform acceptably.

Sadly I haven't touched MC for a good few months now.

It depends, if I go down the BC/IC2/RP/et all route (for example Tekkit) then yes. All that machinery chews up CPU. If I do something a bit different like say Terrafirma Craft then it's not so bad. Even so, there are steps that can be taken (limiting the world size, pre-generating the world, using a ramdisk) to keep things sane.

Bottom line is yes, depending on the number of slots (hence the thread really) I need to chuck a reasonable amount of cash at it (I imagine 30 to 40 quid a month will do the job). Worst case scenario is I go for a colo, I could afford to do that if it was warranted.

Incidentally Burundi, you don't have a copy of the world map with my resort do you ? I'd quite like to have a local copy of it, if that's ok.

I'll try and get you a backup later, I've no access to home at the moment, hadn't had the time to get a VPN up and running on my new server.

No rush at all m8. Like you, I haven't touched MC in weeks.

My bro and I just got a server recently. Spent ages making a massive mob spawner only to find that the rules for mob spawning and mob AI have changed drastically from when I last played... glad it was just a 90x90 chamber not a 144x144 ;-)

I thought I was pretty much done with Minecraft, but I recently discovered the fucking EXCELLENT technic pack and they have an SMP equivalent called Tekkit which runs on Bukkit.

Id be interested if you start a tekkit server

Ok Minty, I'm waiting on 1.3 atm. Once that's out I'll see what's possible.
