This is what I tried to say in mumble yesterday. You say:
it was a great undertaking that I had no experience in and I learned so I could say "hey I did this" I'm not some world class programmer or designer
But then you try to make people feel guilty for not wanting to play. You did it for yourself, which is good. But you can't expect people to want to join you in it. That's just not fair.
It wasn't running properly. I told you that from the start you need a huge server for the mods you wanted. So the upgraded slots was negligible since you needed more RAM. I won't play in a server that is laggy, what's the point. I also won't play in a server that I have to download mods. I like minecraft for the survival feature and the fact that you risk everything on Hardcore mode. I play single player, hardcore, big build survival. If anybody started a server like that, I'd gladly join.
The mods in question that you are referring too are to stop griefing and mod hack control against the server like remote control access it had nothing to do with client base... nobody had to download anything as I told you in mumble ... Most major servers both private and public carry things like world guard, world edit, administration over watch programs and mods. The upgrade to the server increased the ram.. As well as the player slots from 1 to 6, to 1 to 15... This wasn't meant to make you "feel guilty" regardless of how you perceive it... just as I can't make some one get mad or be sad and as it is their own personal mentality that is affected on how they perceive something... The same applies to me ... I felt disappointed that when some one in the past said Jester you should get this game or that one I at least tried if it was of interest if it wasn't I told them simply that I wasn't interested but from the beginning if someone said they would be interested as serial has often said then I took them into consideration ... for anyone to ASSUME that I was commanding them or attempting to throw a hissy fit is under their own interpretation. I do not own or control anyone here nor would I try. I was attempting to voice my opinion in a forum that would lead to conversation not argument or speculation by anyone ... Instead it has been pointed out that this seems like I am some sort of crybaby. I was interested in doing something clan based with anyone that was interested I did not need nor want anyone's analysis of my mentality or request that people gave me some detailed explanation of why they didn't want too join in. The original post outlined clearly(at least in my opinion) that serial and I discussed an idea to have another go at a mine craft server for not only clan base but event base like a 24 hr stream.. If you object then simply say I don't want involved. I don't need or want your opinion on the matter other than that since it seems it's a closed minded scenario I am facing. Serial mentioned other options and I'm fine with his suggestions but as far as ill willed opinions about my attempts to enjoy something that I like as well ... well keep them to yourselves if you don't like my ideas ... and if it seems like I'm a bit hostile right now I am... I'm tired of serial, anubis, and a very select crowd of people in the clan actually being open minded enough to have an intelligent conversation with weighing out pros and cons professionally instead of bashing down someone's ideas or viewpoints automatically... If you feel that I am talking directly to you then you maybe suffering from a guilty conscience and should probably think
how you approach people and their ideas and thoughts then you would have to feel so salty.
