Arctoa's Application

Post  arctoa on Sat Feb 11, 2012 10:40 am

Name: Darren Shields
In-Game Name: arctoa
Age: 26
Reference/Friend: No references, I'm afraid.
How long have you been playing Minecraft: I've been playing since BETA 1.7 rolled out, if I remember rightly.
Where did you find out about our forum: I found the forum through inputting a Google search for 'minecraft server for adults' and stumbling through a few results and related pages before finding this forum.
How many hours a day do you typically play Minecraft: Oh, this varies wildly. Some days I go without, others I'll put in six or seven hours.
Tell us a bit more about yourself: Hullo. I'm D, and at present I am mostly playing Minecraft. Once I get a new computer I'll be branching out into Skyrim and the two newest Fallout games but for now, I'm limited to blocky goodness. I'm an amateur photographer and I have a keen interest in science; particularly physical cosmology. In fact, my enthusiasm for it is only exceeded by my ignorance of the subject; the more you know, the less you know! In other news I'm your average jaded twenty-something; I'm easy-going and avoid confrontation, although I do have something approaching a cynical sense of humour. I've been looking for an appropriate server for a while; all the others I've tried have been full of griefing kids and/or exclusive cliques that're openly hostile to anyone who has the temerity to join their server. I get the impression that this one is different, hence my application!

Oh, hey, you guys reply quickly! I was actually halfway through adding a postscript to my initial post, but I might as well lay it out as a response now.

"PS: After reading that you require voice-authentication on another forum thread I should probably mention that I don't have access to a microphone to do that. However, anyone performing a quick Google search of my name and alias will see that I'm a legitimate entrant; and I'd be happy to join in text-based chat somewhere. I can also provide pictorial evidence of builds I've constructed, if necessary."

I hope this won't be too much of a sticking point.

no problem, you may enjoy using mumble just to listen in we use it a lot during community projects. it may even prompt you to buy a cheap headset. i added you to the member group so you can access the members sections.

How is it on system resources? I need to be extremely careful with running applications, as this machine I am using now is the best part of seven years old; there are more powerful mobile phones out there these days, haha. Either way, it's something I will likely resolve once I take delivery on the PC parts that I am going to be ordering in the next week or two. Cheers for the upgrade, I'll have a proper poke around now.

Skeet's Seal of Approval. Now if we only had Xacktar's nod. Razz


In regards to voice communication, I don't have a mic either, and I plan on getting one once I settle in to my new career. I do use Mumble to listen in on the conversation. I haven't noticed any dominating issues, it seemed to sit in the back pretty well. If your computer is 7 years old though, maybe a quick test to see how it runs with MC. You could also allocate more memory to minecraft, based on how much you have.

I don't mean to imply you don't know this, but if you're on a pc:

Start > Control Panel Search: Java > Click Java Tab > View > Runtime Parameters > Type in

-Xincgc -Xmx[ 1024 for 1 gig up to whatever you want to allocate]M

Mine looks like: -Xincgc -Xmx2048M. Apply and save.

Spiffing! I'll show my face momentarily, although I won't be around for long this evening.

That Java fix made no discernible difference, but I appreciate the effort. I'll just have to deal with jerky graphics on 'tiny' render distance a little longer.

I heard there was a forum thread in need of my nodding head.
