I am building a home server here in the next 2-3 months or so and I was wondering if you all would like a SP Minecraft server again?
I have done some testing with an old Pentium 4 Dual core desktop acting as my server, and it performs SURPRISINGLY well! I have had 12 people connect at once on TF2 without lag. I have had 11 people connect on Minecraft without lag as well.
That aside, the build i am looking to make will have 16GB's of RAM and an 8 core processor. It will be up 24/7, and I have a 35mbps upload pipe in my home.
If for some reason you don't know what that means, it means that my computer can handle a ton of things, and my upload speeds rival a dedicated VPS by most standards.
This version of my server will have several enhancements. I will be handing out moddom for control panel access/management. I will be running a dynamic mapping program (like this http://brown.rice.edu:8123/). I will also have server status widgets on its SP page.
So what do you think? You in? Not? Let me know! I've only got enough room for 3 MC servers, so speak now or the slot is being used elsewhere!
