I'd host it if my ISP didn't deny half the connections :(

FYI: Servers for Minecraft are surprisingly memory-intensive compared to other game servers. Games like Trackmania and Counterstrike take up less RAM/processing, sadly :(
It's because the server client is in alpha just like the rest of the game.

I haven't played the game but I watched like 50 minutes of gameplay time, that a caster guy did. It was funny to watch the guy. The game itself- bleh. I am just not the sort of person that will spend 3 hours to build something that does nothing.

Still, the game boosts creativity.


I will have to go with what Romek said though.

Code monkey not crazy, just proud.
problem is that if you buy it when its in beta you dont get free updates
Yes you do. You get all the updates and the actual release. You just don't get downloadable content extras which won't be made until after the game is finished.

We will also change the license to remove the line that promises all future versions of the game for free. Please note that this change only affects people who buy the game after December 20, so if you got the game for during alpha, you will still get all future updates for free, despite this change. A promise is a promise.
Buying the game during beta will include all updates up until release, of course, and bug patches will be free.

If anyone who is willingly to host a MineCraft server for TheHelper.Net members, please do announce that in the forums.

I'm ready to do just about anything what a server admin can do. Getting up a MySQL database with all of the MineCraft players, and validating them seems easy enough to do, but require a little help. I just need time, fast bandwidth, and some more RAMs.

Don't hog all the fun. I'm an OP on a server. I can setup hMod (hey0's mod) and setup virtually any plugin for hMod. (Towny anyone? :D)

We'll be the new moderators then. That also means we're left with a server dedicated to The Helper.

I've got 1MB download 800MB upload and 512MB RAM for a dedicated (my laptop I'm not currently using).

No, for RAM, you need to follow this formula:

1.5GB + n * (256 MB) = Total number of RAM.

1.5 GB is for running a server and managing lag-free environment.
n stands for how many players you are going to host for them to play. Multiply that by 256 MB and you get the system requirements for hosting a server.

This formula is formed by me, a server provider in Singapore whom is busy hosting for 50 players, and some other collaborators.

It really depends on what you are running.

In minecraft's case, you need at least 1 GB of RAM, more if you want it to run smoothly. Additional players shouldn't really require too much more RAM, if anything, it just requires a faster processor.

I'm hosting mine (survivor, mobs) but the IP is not static currently so I will not give out the IP.
