Famcraft Tutorials, Links and Info / How to Enable Chat in Multiplayer
« on: September 06, 2015, 04:10:56 PM »
 We occasionally have players join who are unable to see our effort to communicate with them in chat. This is most often caused by the player having chat set to "not shown". This is a quick and easy fix.

 We make every effort to keep our chat clean and family friendly for players of all ages.

If you are unable to see chat in game you can follow these steps to enable your multiplayer chat:


1.) Start your client


2.) On the bottom left of the start screen, click the "Options" button.



3.)  Click the "Multiplayer Settings" button on the right side of the screen.



4.) Click the top left "Chat:" option until it displays "Chat:Shown"



5.) Click the "Done"button at the bottom of the window.

 When you join the server again you should see the multiplayer server chat displayed on your screen.  8)

If you are having trouble connecting to the Famcraft survival server located at survival.famcraft.com, please try the following steps.

 If any of these steps seem confusing to you or make you nervous, please ask an adult for help.



1.) Make sure you are using the correct client version.

 You need Minecraft client version 1.15.2 in order to play on Famcraft.

 If you do not know how to change your client version, don't worry! It's easy. After you log into the Minecraft launcher, simply click on the button on the bottom left of the window that says "Edit Profile".

 Under "Version Selection" , next to "Use Version"  use the drop down menu to select "release 1.15.2".

 Click "Save Profile" at the bottom of the window. This will return you to the main Minecraft client window where you can proceed to play as usual.




Try to connect using the correct client version - Works? GREAT!

 No luck? Proceed to step 2, please.

 


2.) Remove any mods from the "mods" folder in your .minecraft folder.

  If you do not want to remove the mods, you can simply temporarily rename the folder to something else. Some mods can cause connection issues.



Try to connect with nothing in the mods folder - Works? GREAT!

 No luck? Proceed to step 3, please.




3.) Remove any resource packs you may have active.

  We've seen this cause issues for some players in the past, making Minecraft crash to the desktop as soon as they try to join a server.



Try to connect with only the default resource pack - Works? GREAT!

 No luck? Proceed to step 4, please.



4. Delete the files options.txt from your .minecraft folder.

 Sometimes this little file can cause big problems when trying to connect to a 1.15.2 server after you've been playing Minecraft on version 1.7.10 or lower.

  If you are nervous about deleting it, you can make sure your Minecraft is closed and rename the file to options.old. Then, if you find you want the file back simply rename it back to options.txt.



Try to connect after deleting the "options.txt" file.- Works? GREAT!

 No luck? Please post in this thread. Please include any additional information you have.




  Please include a crash report if you have one.  You can use the "#" icon for the "code" option in the reply menu and copy/paste the info from your crash report.


 ** TheIronEngineer2 just let us know sometimes connecting is as simple as adjusting your render distance down a bit. It's worth a shot!

Plea to be unbanned / To Socks and True
« on: May 26, 2015, 06:47:14 PM »
Hello Socks and True. We felt this would be the very best way to address this situation.

 You two have both been with us for a very long time. You've both been good players that we have really enjoyed having on the server. It will be very sad if you do not both return to us. In order to return, you will need to read this entire post, and reply to make it clear you understand what has been said here.

 Both of you are guilty of bringing drama from another server to Famcraft. We absolutely won't stand for it here. We ask for ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of ANY other server on this server- this includes to staff. We are very tired of hearing about the drama on the "other server".

 It is none of our concern what you do in your spare time, or what other servers you choose to play on. We all play other games, we all do other things. When we are on Famcraft we DO NOT discuss other servers, period.

 What is even worse than your disregard for the rules about not discussing other servers here is that you are not only discussing them you are actually causing trouble with one another here about things that happened elsewhere.

 We CAN NOT AND WILL NOT help you with ANYTHING that has occurred outside of Famcraft.

 This means if you have an issue

- on another server

- on skype

-on another game

-on steam

-at school

-at the park

-in any public or private location

-at home

-by email

-by telephone

-by snail mail

-by carrier pigeon

- though telepathic communication of any kind

 It is NOT a FAMCRAFT issue. We offer a safe and friendly place to play. We moderate conversations and actions on Famcraft ONLY. We can not protect you from issues elsewhere.

 We WILL NOT ever offer "special protections" or allow any player to treat another player in a rude or disrespectful manner on Famcraft. If  you intend to be here, you will do so while following Famcraft's rules.
 
 We have reviewed the logs of server conversations between involved parties and we see some incredibly petty nonsense going on as far as both of you go. If you're going to act like that towards one another, you can do it elsewhere. We don't need it here. We know there is a lot of playing innocent going on here, but I think you both know you are contributing to this situation.

 If you wish to return to Famcraft you need to get your act together and not attempt to bring your drama here. If you return and we see one more mention of this "other server" or what goes on there you will be perm banned with no plea.

 If this is 100% clear to you, reply to this post and we will see about reducing this to a temp-ban so you can both have a cooling off period to put this nonsense behind you.

General Discussion / I wish Famcraft knew....
« on: April 24, 2015, 06:18:54 PM »
 I recently saw a story on the news about the #Iwishmyteacherknew movement that was started by an elementary school teacher. I was very moved by some of the stories I saw there. I thought it was a really cool way for teachers and students to get to know each other better.

 Sometimes, there are things we wish other people did know about us, to help them understand a bit more about us, but it's often so difficult to find a way to toss out random facts about ourselves in normal conversations.

 Sometimes, it would help to know that someone else shares the same likes or dislikes as you. It would be fun to know someone else has similar hobbies to yours, or someone else struggles with math too!

 So I present to you this thread. What do you wish other Famcrafters knew about you? It does not have to be profound! It can be something as small as "I wish Famcraft knew how much I like guinea pigs!" or as big as "I wish Famcraft knew that I struggle with reading in school". You do not have to post on this thread at all, but it is an open door for those who want to share a bit more about themselves.

 As this is Famcraft, I do have to ask that all comments be kept family friendly. It is okay to mention missing someone you've lost, or illness or injury, but please do not give details that might be upsetting to other players.
 Please do not mention anything here that would break any of the Famcraft server or forum rules. Also please do not post information that is too personal such as any info that identifies you or your location (like your whole real name, or the name of your school, for example.)

 So...

""I wish Famcraft knew.. "

Plea to be unbanned / Adihsam's plea, sent by forum mail
« on: March 13, 2015, 05:16:19 PM »
 Pretty interesting that you "don't even know why you were banned" but you know for sure you were on a "different server" when it happened. It WAS you, logged in on Famcraft,discussing the server name/ip with another person on Famcraft via /msg. We normally do not pardon advertisers. For any chance to return you will need to acknowledge what you did, and explain that you understand why it is against the rules, and assure it it will not happen again.

Adihsam's plea:

General Discussion / NEW Famcraft Family Photo!! Sign up now!! :D
« on: February 26, 2015, 03:04:15 PM »
CLOSED- Thanks everyone!!




It's time for a NEW Famcraft Family photo!
 
 If you are not sure what I mean, I am referring to the image at the top right of your Famcraft screen. This is a custom made image we do about once a year.

 How? It's easy! Just add your name to this list! :D

 When? When this list is long enough to justify all the work it takes to make a new Family photo!  8) We'd like to have quite a few names before we get started. The list will probably sit here for quite a few weeks before we begin working on the new picture.

 To be very clear, you do not have to be in game, this is not a screen shot. We use a Minecraft skin viewer to collect and assemble the images into a nice big picture. :D All you have to do is add your name to this list. Please make sure you use the exact caps and or numbers in your name. No nick-names please, we need your actual user name.

 Thanks!

 Thanks to everyone who signed up! The picture has been updated on the forum and here are some downloadable images for you all :D

 Here are some previews but you will want to download the attachments if you want the full sized images.

Just us:


With "Famcraft" at the bottom:


With no background so you can add your own:

Famcraft Tutorials, Links and Info / How to find your coordinates
« on: February 12, 2015, 03:05:28 PM »
 We receive a lot of Admin request with no coordinates or coords that have been noted incorrectly. This post is intended to help explain what coords are, and how to find them.

  Coordinates are the numbers used to explain your exact position on the map. (Or even on the Earth irl! But this is about Minecraft). Your coordinates change with every single step you take. :O  Your Minecraft coordinates are made up of 3 numbers. Those numbers are known as your X,Y and Z coordinates.

 I found this great image to help illustrate how these coordinates work:


(Credit: "Coord system CA 0" by Jorge Stolfii - listed as public domain, modified by us to fit with Minecraft's coordinate system)

 To find your coordinates on Minecraft on a Windows based pc, press the F3 key. On a Mac, I believe you will need to press FN AND F3 at the same time.

 This should display a screen with all kinds of numbers and info. It will look like this:


But you only need to focus on one area of this information, which I have color coded here:

 
 You only need the numbers I have highlighted green, the x,y and z numbers. You can ignore everything from the blue colored decimal point onward. We do not need that information. Please pay close attention to the x,y and z numbers. Sometimes there is an "-" in front, a minus sign, noting that it is a negative coordinate. There is a world of difference between x: 501, y:71 , z:1,687 and x: 501, y:71 , z:-1,687. Please make sure you always include the proper "-" sign but ONLY if it is actually present, don't use it for a spacer or divider symbol when you are noting coordinates.

 Another option is to stand in one place and type /coords

 This will provide information about your coordinates. Again, we ONLY need the x,y and z number here:



 
 If you need coordinates for a platform or world edit way up in the sky, it's okay to simply add to your Y coordinate. You do not actually have to block jump up there if you know about how high up you would like the platform to be.

 For example, if you are standing at x:501,y:70, z:1687 on the ground is your "y" level: 70 .
 If the ground is y level 70, and you want a platform about 50 feet up, then you can say 70 + 50 = 120. You now know you want your platform placed at level y:120.
 You would replace your y coordinate with this new number. Your new coords would be  x:501,y:120,z:1678.

 When you are providing coordinates for an Admin request, take into consideration what you actually want or need done. Some requests only need one coordinate, while others need two or more.

 If you need  a spawner placed, we only need ONE coordinate. We need to know where you would like the spawner placed.

 If you need a home moved, we need coordinates to the old location, and the new location.

 If you want a platform placed, or land cleared in a very precise area, we need coordinates for two diagonally opposite corners.




 However.. if you need a dirt platform placed or land cleared in a less exact area, you can always give us a single coordinate, and say something similar to "I would like a 100x100 area of land cleared to seal-level. The center should be: x:#####,y:##,z:####."  We can work with that just fine as long as you make sure to type the coordinates correctly.
