Persistent MineCraft SMP World
and so it is with the reign of Solomon Gajda as steward of the Notably Republic. After a 3 year run, and wIth the latest count at 318, I'd like to thank those citizens who contributed so unselfishly to the development of this MineCraft world. I made the final backup of the Notably Republic just before the server went offline and will make it available to any Notably Republic citizen in good standing. I can upload it to any server, and will gladly place a forwarding link on this website for anyone seeking a divergent Notably Republic world managed by one of you. This website gets well over 13,000 visitors a month. I'll also provide a list of all mods I was using, and even supply the latest code as of MineCraft 1.7.5. The world database can be run on any server, even the latest version of MineCraft. It's just a matter of mod code catching up, but you don't have to use the mods I used, or any at all for that matter, it'd be up to you. All my mods are for the Craftbukkit server version. The world can also be loaded onto a local computer and played in offline mode. I have tested this. You can see much further when in local mode. From Founders Hall I can see the crane in PubliCity in the distance. Note that the entire Notably Republic MineCraft data file set requires 21.07 gigabytes, so you'd need a server that could run a world at least that size. Provide me with FTP access and I'll upload it for you (it takes 7 hours to upload) or send me a 21GB+ portable storage unit (like a flash drive) with enough money to cover return postage and I'll dump it over and mail it to you. The lists of links to divergent Notably Republics will be placed here if desired. This web site will stay active for some time, and is also available if someone wants it. I'll run a final update to the world map (as of June 4, 2014) and place it on this website.
We expected all citizens to respect builds and chests. Unless you'd cleared it with the owner (or they've placed a "free stuff" sign beside it, don't take things that aren't yours. Ask around before mining or building to make sure you're not in an area someone has already claimed and is working. Be creative, but try and make your build fit suitably and not clash with builds around it.
In addition to our hardcore Hunger Games server and Clan Wars server, there were several areas designated for player versus player combat, such as arenas or large outdoor settings. These areas were clearly marked by borders and signs. Please be aware that if you built or carried anything into these areas, you may have lost it due to death traps or other automatic and clicker powered devices within the area.
Sanctioned PvP was allowed anywhere in the world. PvP was considered sanctioned if players were members of opposing groups who had declared war on each other, or in a case where role-play dictated that two groups or individuals were at war. The declaration must be mutual.
This server ran MineCraft version 1.7.5 in survival mode with 54 mods actively maintained. (We also hosted a hardcore Hunger Games and a ClanWars server open to vistors and citizens alike.) The Netherworld was active. Flying was not. Teleportation was limited to certain specific events, we used rails! This was a MineCraft roleplay server. The server itself was located in a high-capacity data center in Dallas, TX with 14GB RAM, Sandy Bridge Intel Xeon E3-1270 processors and solid state hard-drives. We backed up the server to off-site locations twice per day. A unique world map was updated monthly showing the current state of all areas explored so far. Server slots were set to 120 (people online at any one time) and we monitored this to ensure lag-free performance. This server had no white-list, and visitors were free to visit and explore before deciding if it would be a good fit for them. Visitors couldn't break or place blocks, or use anything; monsters ignored visitors. In order to build in world, you needed to complete an application (selecting "Apply" from the menu) for citizenship. It was our intention to fill membership based on normal playing times to ensure an even server load and nominal performance at all times.
The Notably Republic was located on the planet Torvi V in the Torvi solar system of the Chasnaye constellation of the Everyshore region in the Eve-Online universe. Planetary operations were managed by the HedgeWorks [HEWS] corporation.
We tried to admit only the most creative and hard-working people to this server. While we understood that accidents do happen on an SMP server, please respect the work that others have done and try to mitigate any inadvertant damage you may cause as best you can. We do have a community run system of courts, trial by jury, and even prison to help solve disputes and encourage societal norms.
Builds and building sites can be protected from creeper and enderman damage. Fill out and submit a Land Claim form for protection and access controls. Territories can be claimed and deeded. Larger territories require more than one person on the deed.
We welcomed creative and active artists, writers, designers, musicians, and filmmakers all with good imaginations. Together we built a unique world setting for exploration, plot-development, intellectual digression, roleplay, relaxation and fun! Apply now.
There was no membership fee, but your application had to be approved by current citizens.
