The Wurstmineberg Minecraft Server

Wurstmineberg is a whitelisted multi world Minecraft server. We run several worlds on a dedicated root server.

The main world usually runs the latest version of Minecraft, including the latest snapshots if they're not too broken. Therefore we can't run any serverside mods there, sorry. But we do have some awesome selfmade tools that really replace lots of that functionality. We also have a modded server if you like mods.

If you're interested in playing with us, we have some requirements. In the meantime, you can check out the IRC and Twitter section below.

Server map

We set up Mapcrafter to generate a daily overview map of our main world. It runs a lot faster than Minecraft Overviewer (which we used before Mapcrafter), but it's still kind of experimental.

IRC

We use Slack for communication internally, but if you want to get in touch with us without having access to our Slack team, you can join our IRC channel on Freenode. Feel free to join us there if you're interested in playing on the server or just generally want to say hi and / or talk about stuff. The channel is being synced to Slack to make sure that we actually read it.

Twitter

We integrated Twitter in our server/IRC bot and now we have automated tweets. Sometimes it's a death message, sometimes it's the server telling us that he's lonely, sometimes it's a list of currently online players, sometimes a snippet from IRC shenanigans. It's emotional.

It's also the easiest way to get in touch with us.

Costs

Since we're running on an actual server that requires actual monies to run, we decided to try a “Donate if you will, or don't but it would be pretty dandy if you would” model. See our finance section for more info. Otherwise you can still chip in via flattr, even though it doesn't really do much except show appreciation, which is also cool.

Custom Tools

We have a github organization where we keep most of our stuff, like the IRC bot, the systemd service file we use to manage our worlds, and even this website. We also have three single-serving sites for the current server time, weather conditions, and time since the last death on the server (Javascript required). There's also the Wurstmineberg API, which makes a lot of cool stuff possible, like our statistics page.

TeamSpeak

How cliché, right? Yes, kind of. But everything's better than group Skype call bulshittery and the likes. Because sometimes it's just nice to talk to people.

You can get the password on the IRC and the client, if necessary, over there.

And if you ask why we don't have a mumble server, you may or may not be punched in the mood.

Wiki

We have MediaWiki to harvest the glorious benefits of wiki-technology for our purposes.

Besides meta stuff, we're also writing articles about projects on the server itself. This might not seem like a big deal as of now, but things are slowly coming together, and eventually we'll have documented all the things.

There are also articles about fictional content. Fun stuff.

News

We used to have a private subreddit for announcements and discussions, but since we added the wiki, it's kind of dead. So now we set up a simple news site in case of important announcements like server downtimes or other important updates that are too long for Twitter. It's used rarely.
