MineCore is a Minecraft snapshot server run by techkid6 on the Obrussa box. It always runs the newest Minecraft snapshot, and is home to the Newdonia world (not to be confused with Freedonia)


The Beginning

While discussing the lack of a 1.7 update due to software and plugins needing to be updated, the idea of a Vanilla server came up in the #minecraftonline IRC channel, the issue was that there wasn't anyone to administer it, as, the god getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot is a very busy one, running Freedonia already. In an absolutely brilliant (not) conversation, the idea of a snapshot server was born.

 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> riot, what do you think about the vanilla temp-server idea
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> what, replace mco with a vanilla server until 1.7 proper? 
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> either that or run alongside?
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> maybe on obrussa/mineco.re?
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> the former, definitely not 
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> the latter, why aren't we already?
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> because I can't set it up?
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> just a different port on mco proper
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> then, lets do it?
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> or maybe minecore, nothing going on
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> problem is maintenance effort
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> it's so much hassle honestly... and it'll take moderation away from here, where people still play
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> we'd have to make sure everyone KNOWS it'll be deleted
 <getplayerhead.sh?chivalrousWeasel&16.png chivalrousWeasel> it doesn't need moderation
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> so then what's the incentive to do anything except grief? 
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> it'll be yet another entirely-on-fire vanilla server
 <getplayerhead.sh?Flippeh&16.png Flippeh> That's the fun of it
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> ./gamerule doFireTick false
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> ftfy
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> ok, another griefed not-on-fire vanilla server
 <getplayerhead.sh?chivalrousWeasel&16.png chivalrousWeasel> the last time we did a temporary server it wasn't too bad
 <getplayerhead.sh?chivalrousWeasel&16.png chivalrousWeasel> granted, that was a few years ago
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> things are more complicated now
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> it would still take some work
 <getplayerhead.sh?techkid6&16.png techkid6> I'd be willing to put in the work for it....
 <getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot> alright... let's have a test on obrussa

And thus, it was born! Within two hours of this conversation, MineCo.re was open for business!
