Noobstown General / What's getting updated?
« on: 30 Dec 2018, 22:29:27 »
Hi. I have tried to log on several times and I get a message saying er are updating and to get more info at the website. So, what's being updated?

Noobstown General / Villager breeding
« on: 16 Sep 2018, 22:34:10 »
Quick question-Can we breed villagers? If yes, will the hang around or despawn?

Market Place / Prismarine Crystals
« on: 3 Sep 2016, 19:43:52 »
I am pleased to announce that I am buying prismarine crystals for 100 noobz per stack. This is higher than VIP shop! I have 6 dcs set up, and will check them often, but this is a limited time offer, so sell high while you can!  Thank-you!!

Suggestions & Ideas / custom trees
« on: 13 Dec 2015, 17:01:51 »
While we are thinking about ways to customize our builds, I thought I would bring up trees. The custom trees in the wild around Noobstown are awesome, but there is no way to plant the saplings to get another! It would be great if there were some way to obtain these wild trees for use on your wild plot or in your town. It is surprisingly difficult to build a large tree that looks Minecraft natural. I would be cool to stand in my living room with a plate of tacos ( ) looking at a forest of giant, custom trees.

Market Place / Anduril Has been found!
« on: 26 Mar 2015, 04:21:01 »
I was mining in the abandoned Mines of Moria and I found the Sword of Swords! Anduril, the sword that was broken and reforged! As soon as I picked it up, I knew it was special. I carried the sword to Elrond of Rivendell and he told me about the power of the sword. Anduril carries Unbreaking 3, Sharpness 4 ,Fire Aspect 2, Knockback 2 and Looting 2. As he looked over the rest of my find, he noted the other swords and told me that while they were not as powerful as Anduril, they are very useful swords in the right hands. The Pick, he said, was the work of the dwarves of Moria, and upon this pick they placed the power of eternity (unbreaking 3), wealth (Fortune 3), and Power (Efficiency 4).

It has been quite the adventure, starting down the path from my door. On my journey, I passed through the forests of the Western shores and found a bow that sang with power. Not wishing to bother Elrond again, I traveled to Lorien to ask Galadriel about this bow. It was clearly an Elven bow.
She spoke of the battles the bow had seen, and told me that the bow was called Celebithil (moon of Silver) and was last carried by Legolas before he journeyed West over the sea at the beggining of the Age of Men. The bow is enchanted with Infinity 1, Eternity (unbreaking 3), Punch 2 and Power 5. Unfortunately, she told me, the bow does not have Sight, and accuracy is in the eyes and hands of the beholder.

I have placed these items in auction in the hopes that these weapons and tools will find their way into the right hands.

Market Place / FOUND! SANTA'S ARMOR!
« on: 20 Dec 2014, 18:31:32 »
I found Santa's Armor while roaming the frozen waste lands of the dreaded Ice Spike Biome in the mining world! It's an unbelievable find. I searched and searched for his sleigh or his house, but I had no luck. Then this morning, I see Santa will be making his rounds and I realized he needs his armor soon, but I couldn't find a way to return his armor. I have posted the armor in auction hoping that Santa will see it or somebody that knows Santa will see it and buy it and return his armor!

How do I know it's Santa's armor? Well, it's red leather, and we all know red is his favorite color and leather fits well under his suit. When you look at it, it shimmers with enchantment, and let me tell you about the enchantments! These enchants were revealed to me by a magic polar bear, and this is what he told me:

"This armor was enchanted just for St. Nicholas. The power is amazing, and suits his needs well. Let me tell you about each piece:
The hat is Unbreaking 3, (to last and last) Respiration 3 (in case the ice breaks under his sleigh, or a 747 runs him out of the sky- the air space around New York and London is insane) and Fire Protection 3 (many people have a HOT fireplace when he visits)
The Vest and Pants are also Unbreaking 3 and Fire Protection 3.
The Boots are Unbreaking 3, Feather Falling 3 (That helps him get down the chimney safely!) and Protection 3 (for added padding and warmth!)

Treat these items well, and please do what you must to return these items to Santa. I am sorry I can not help you find Santa, but you know he is watching."

And laying his finger paw aside of his nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney ice spike he rose.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight —
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Market Place / Buying gunpowder/sulpher
« on: 19 Dec 2014, 09:41:54 »
I am buying gunpowder at my shop at /visit craftymatt13 . I am paying  200/stack. That is 40 noobz better than /VIPSHOP. I have 3 chests set up to take care of you. See you soon! Better hurry! Three 3 chests are all I need.  (In case you're wondering, I'm arming my creeper army  O:) They only fight for the forces of Good!)

Suggestions & Ideas / Can you hear me?
« on: 20 Aug 2014, 02:00:29 »
I have a simple (I think) suggestion. I have seen in chat, and have done it myself,  that players get so involved with what they are doing that they miss other players trying to contact them.  My suggestion is

 /call [playername]

command that sets off distinct sound (enderman screech, maybe?) or flickers the screen on the players side (could be players choice). The sound effect could also be tied to the first private message on player sends to another. Of course, there are players who would see this as an invasion of privacy, so each player could turn receiving calls off, returning an AFK or "Player has calls off" message.

   Just a simple(?) suggestion. I am sure there are a lot of details that I haven't considered.


Suggestions & Ideas / shop vs auction
« on: 22 Feb 2014, 05:54:36 »

    I was wondering if chest shops were in the plans for Noobstown. I like he auction, but there are definate limitations. I think that chest shops and auction would work together well.

    One of the biggest drawback to Auction is timing. If I have spider eyes in the auction and the time runs out, I could miss a sale if 5 minutes later an enchantress logs on looking for an ingredient for her favorite potions. The semi permanence of the chest shops would do away with this. This would also improve the economy by making low value or low volume items profitable to sell since the auction fees are bypassed. (Yes, there would still be rent). The auction is great for higher volume or high valued items.

   The biggest drawback (the only one I have seen mentioned, repeatedly) to the chest shops is location, location, location! The shop owners who have front and center placement for their shops have an unfair advantage over those in the back. What I suggest would be /warp-shop that takes you to the shops and would work like this:

    The destination for /warp-shop would be a shop cell. Each cell (there could be as many as needed) would have a central courtyard 3x3 chunks. Each side of the courtyard would have 3 one chunk shops for the player to rent. These could be blank plots for the player to build on or could be pre-built, each identical to the other (boring, but “fair”). The buyer would warp into the center of each cell, giving each shop owner a chance at front row placement. Behind the scenes, the server would place buyer 1 in cell 1 facing North, buyer 2 in cell 1 facing East, Buyer 3 cell 1 facing South, buyer 4 cell 1 facing West, buyer 5 in cell 2 facing North and so on. Once in the shop zone, a buyer will be able to /warp shop 3 and go to cell 3, where his favorite seller of rotten flesh peddles his wares. The shop owner could have /warp-myshop to take him to their own shop.

   V6 Noobstown looks awesome. What I have suggested for chest shops breaks with the aesthetics of Noobstown since the cells would be separate from Noobstown. To help with this, I offer a variation on this theme (warping to give all owners a shot at front and center). There could be a shop zone, like in V5. The big difference for V6 would be that when you go through the entrance of the shopping district, the buyer would warp to the next store in the list.

   Just putting in my two cents. Hope to see chest shops soon!


Noobstown General / Summer release?
« on: 25 Jan 2014, 14:12:13 »

I logged in, pulled up multiplayer, and there was a statement by Noobscraft saying "summer release-cough". Is this trying to tell us something? Or are you confirming my original prediction(made in Sept or so) of a summer release, Southern Hemisphere?
There was also a message saying "we are prepared, are you?" meaning any day now, I hope. Which is it...I'm soooo confused.

Other / Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and your families. May the best of times you had in 2013 be the worst of times you have in 2014!


Noobstown General / Speaking of lag...
« on: 4 Dec 2013, 20:05:38 »
I have had a terrible time with lag since the 1.7? release when playing other servers. Is anybody else having the same problems? I realize that Noobstown isn't here to help fix my problems with other servers, but given the delay, maybe I can get my computer running right for V6. My lag on other servers mirrored my lag on Noobstown V5.

If it's server issues due to the update (I think I saw somewhere that the server code had a major overhaul) then I guess I'll just have to wait for Mojang to fix it. My game will freeze at 0 FPS for 2-3 minutes at a time (rough in skywars type mini games) then return to 40-90 FPS.  The freezes aren't usually that bad, usually just a few seconds. I don't have any problems with single player or using this machine as a LAN host. I've played with the video settings in minecraft, but no change.

Computer specs: AMD Athlon II 4x800, 2G RAM,  NVIDIA Geforce 8500 Graphics card, Windows XP Mediacenter.  I know, almost out of date machine.

Looking at my description of the lag, it looks like the issue is with the servers, for the most part. Does this sound likely?

I try to read all the new posts, but sometimes I miss new posts because they do't show up any more on the new post list. I  know I could check each topic looking for new posts, but sometimes time is short and I just want to get to mining/building! Would it be possible to have a scroll bar added to the new post list on the home page?

Thanks for reading, Craftymatt13

Support / Rei's minimap
« on: 18 Nov 2012, 21:44:13 »
I realize that this is a Mod and is not really a support issue for Noobscraft but still...maybe somebody can help.

I had no problems with the mini-map until the 1.4.4 update. Since then, I have have not been able to get it to work. From what I can tell, the same version of the map for 1.4.2 should be compatible with 1.4.4. I have tried re-installing it several times, have forced updates and tried to re-install, deleted the bin folder, forced an update and tried to re-install. Yes, I deleted the meta-inf folder in all cases. I haven't used any Mod loader in the past and have no other mods to deal with. I also noticed that the basic map that is a part of Minecraft is gone as well. Does anybody know what I am missing or am I just outta luck?

Thanks, Craftymatt13

Other / To Much Minecraft?
« on: 15 Nov 2012, 05:21:35 »
I realized today I may be playing a bit to much Minecraft lately. I was driving down the road when I saw a pick-up truck in front of me. In the back of the truck was a large cage with a dog inside. My first thought was "Where did he get the Wolf spawner from?" and then " I want one!". I realized at that point I need to turn off Minecraft for a while. (yeah, right. Maybe next fall).

So, has anyone else had Minecraft show up in the Real World?

Noobstown General / Banks
« on: 27 Sep 2012, 06:16:50 »
Hello. I am new to playing Mine-craft online and  have a few questions. How do I deposit money in a bank? (if I can) What is the difference between teleporting to the mines and walking into the wilderness?  I thought one would be able to mine in the wilderness. I have looked at the guides section(probably overlooked what I want) and cannot find what I am looking for-mainly what to do where to go in the first days of gameplay. Also, when I am walking around, why does the surrounding area take so long to load? I can see the caverns and mines before the ground loads in. Sorry these questions are so basic, but I think they will get better.
