Another day another cube...


Having issues configuring my Minecraft server! Need Help!

So I have a physical server that I have purchased and loaded Ubuntu on. I have the Minecraft server setup and I can connect to it myself, however the issue is getting other to connect. I have attempted the port forwarding and made multiple restarts as well as allowing exceptions through my firewall both on this PC and the Ubuntu server. Any thoughts? I use a Netgear Nighthawk X10 router and have Verizon.

Any advice to get better at building?

I see people build detailed structures, and really want to do that too, but I don’t know where to start. Has anyone got any advice to build better?

Don’t look no more:

  • Watch some you tubers who explain how they do it and steps to take, its helped me a ton. Grian is my personal favorite for building stuff
  • Looking at other people’s structures help! I’d suggest checking out the minecraft tag on tumblr. Or looking at a few servers to see their buildings! 🙂
  • Try different shapes! Not every building has to be symmetrical. Don’t always build box houses
  • Find inspiration and experiment A LOT!

Packing Cube Alternatives

Packing folders: Packing folders are very rigid, which makes them good for things like business shirts and slacks. They are worth a try depending on your travel needs. I had purchased one years ago before my first backpacking trip, but when it came time to pack up and go, I left it behind.

Compression bags: These bags can reduce the space your stuff takes up by compressing the contents. They are great for things like puffy jackets and bulky clothing items. At HPL we compared four different brands of compression sacks so you can choose the right one.

Shoe bags: Shoe sized bags that protect your clothing from the soles of your shoes. Some people use them for laptop and camera cables and chargers instead. They’re also good for undergarments.

Zipper pouches: I tend to use an extremely lightweight zipper pouch for socks and underwear, and I also pack a 2nd one to store my dirty clothes.
