How to Drastically Reduce Lag in minecraft
How to Drastically Reduce Lag in minecraft
Anti Lag ! Texture Pack ! -http://minecraftwb.com/index.php/texture-packs/view-all-packs/item/render-craft-texture-pack
Usually the lag is the result of a bad FPS (frames per second) rate; to boost it were going to want to change our setting in Minecraft to these:
(Start Minecraft>options>video settings)
Usually youll notice an immediate difference from doing the above, however, its usually still not enough. Minecraft will require a decent deal of RAM (random access memory) if you have a bad video card, to boost the available ram open up task manager (right click toolbar and click task manager) then go to processes.
Youll see all the running processes, simply end all the processes that are taking up a decent deal of memory and the ones you dont need open during playing the game- i.e Internet explorer.
After that open up Minecraft and in the process tab on task manager right click on javaw.exe go to set Priority and set it to High , youll be prompted with this :
Accept it, close down task manager and play! Still experiencing lag? Continue on...
The third and final step to eradicate lag is the use of Optimine; a FPS booster, along with the all new Optifog.
After that open up the download in your archive program, such as winRar. Go to Options>settings> Integration and make sure you have .Jar ticked as I do:
Next type this into run or search in windows: %APPDATA%/.minecraft/bin .You should be here:
Now, go into your minecraft.jar and delete the META-INF folder, then simply drag and drop all the Optimine and Optifog .class files inside the root of the Minecraft.jar and youre done !

How to make a Minecraft Server (Bukkit)
Okay i will teach you the easiest and most effective way of making a great working minecraft online server.
Part 1: Portforwarding(only if your hosting it on your computer)
Portforwarding is often a complicated process for people but really when it comes down to it, is very simple. I will be covering how to do it on a Linksys router, but most routers are very similar in how you do this. If you need help with portforwarding feel free to PM me and ask for help.
Step 1: In order to portforward you need to find your IPv4 Default Gateway, this is normally going to be 192.168.1.1. To make sure what this is open on the command terminal and type ipconfig as the command, this will show you your IP information, as well as your IPv4 Default Gateway. Once you have found this, type it into your web browser.
Once typed into your web browser you will be prompted to enter a username and password, if you are on linksys and have not changed this info, the username will be Admin and the password will be admin. Passwords ARE case sensitive. Once you get passed that you should see a screen something like this:
Don't be alarmed if yours looks different, this just means you have a different router. Next you will need to find the portforwarding section, it's commonly called Gaming, or Applications, or something like that.
Remember that ipconfig thing we did? Check that again to find your IPv4 Adress, this will commonly be 192.168.1.101, 102, 103, etc. etc. Set your port up like mine, and use 25565 for the port, as that is the default port for minecraft:
Then save the changes and you are good to go!
To check if the port is open, go to http://www.yougetsig...ols/open-ports/ and change the port to 25565 and test it, if it didn't work, PM me or ask for help. I can assist you as best I can.
First off go to No-IP - Dynamic DNS, Static DNS for Your Dynamic IP. Make an account there.
Once you have made an account click on the link at the top that says "Download", and choose your OS and install the program, run the program and sign in with your e-mail and password. Now go back to the website, login to your account, and go to the Hosts/Redirects section, and click add a host. All you need to do is select the name you want. Now go back to that program, and check the IP you just registered to use on your computer, you can now connect to your server using that IP you registered instead of handing out your actual IP.
Part 2: Getting Bukkit (can use other software but i highly recommend Bukkit )
I recommend you use the recommended builds of bukkit to avoid running into any problems, these builds can be found at Bukkit Forums.
Once you have downloaded that move it into a new folder, and make a new .bat file in that same folder, you can use notepad to make the .bat file, but name the file run.bat when you save it.
In notepad, enter the following code in, and save it as run.bat:
You may have to change the path to your java, as it may not be the same or may not work.
Once you have made that double click the run.bat file to run your server, congratulations, your running your server!
So, what is a bukkit "build"?
Well, we all know minecraft isn't a fully developed game yet, so it's constantly being updated, this means that to keep up, bukkit is constantly being updated, these updates to bukkit are called "builds". Now there are 2 different kinds of builds, recommended builds, and developer builds. I recommend you to stick with the recommended builds unless you are okay with some things not working. The recommended builds can be found on the homepage of the bukkit site, whereas the developer builds can be found here. When a large update is out on minecraft, bukkit will most likely not work on it until it is updated, the developer builds will be available sooner, but may not work with everything, so inexeperienced users should stick with the recommended builds.
Part 3: PLUGINS!
in this thread i will post the plugins i feel needed to making a successful server and explain there uses ! + my reviews and opinions on them all.
Big Brother - Catch Greifers red handed
This plugin is in my opinion the most advanced anti grefing tool, it allows you to view the time , date and even how a player destroyed , placed or tampered in any way with a build , and gives you the ability to quite litraly roll back all actions ever done by that player !
World Guard -
"Protect your world by selectivity turning off fire, controlling item usage, blocking TNT, and protecting areas. "
it also has protection as in plot protection , you can use your wand tool and dedicate certain players to that plot so no other users can edit it .
World Edit - Cuboid Advanced
this plugin allows you to mass edit selected areas , and replace on block to another using simple commands . you can even create perfect domes. a great feature with this plugin is the super pick , it allows you to edit any block with just one hit (//)
this is a collection of plugins, that involvs an easy to manage permissions system ( ranks ) and the ability to set spawn , home & even warp with great ease . it says it in the name realy , in my opinion the most important plugin if you are owning your own server !
(after coding your permissions download "iChat" to make the Tags on the left & right show up)
this is much like locket t but does it automatically its the "Own blocks " but just for things you store things in or to keep people out of , so things like dispensers , chests & doors .
this plugin gives you the ability to place and stack fences anywhere you want , Verry practical.
craft book / feather pack
these allow things like [gate] to be placed on a sign to form working gates and things along the same lines like [heal] [disposal] this is just to add cool functions to things on your server . not needed but Verry helpful.
this is a realy simple and easy to work anti Greifing plugin , it pritty much dis allows other users to destroy or tamper with any blocks you placed.
this plugin allows you to spawn spinning blocks that people cant pick up, it to me makes a shop you make look more like a real shop, these blocks can be placed anywhere you spawn them.
this plugin is great for survival , it makes the work side of things less boring , if you break the bottom block of a tree all wood will drop , so it means faster wood collecting so player can get on to building.
