Minecraft is the best game ever known to the shack.

If you want to play single or multiplayer Survival mode (the only really fun game mode) then you will need to pay for the game. The game is in alpha and is only 10 euros so don't be a cheapskate, you big asshole. You paid more than that to see Avatar at the cinema, remember?

Multiplayer Utilities

Texture Installation Guides


Mac / OSX

Simply place the new texture files and UI modification subdirs at same level as your Minecraft.app file. No need to mess with the .jar file to change the textures.

  • ..\Applications\Minecraft\Minecraft.app
  • ..\Applications\Minecraft\terrain.png
  • ..\Applications\Minecraft\terrain\
  • ..\Applications\Minecraft\gui\
  • etc.

(Note: in that picture, the "Zelda Textures" folder is not being used, since it is at the wrong directory level. I was just keeping it readily available to switch to.)

Server Administration

  • Multiplayer Forums - Great for finding the latest Admin, Mods, and Server GUIs.
  • MCAdmin - Great server wrapper with a slick GUI.
  • Hey0's Mod - Server mod that enables many features such as /sethome to set your spawn location.
  • Llamacraft - Makes furnaces and buckets work, also prevents griefing.


  • F11 - True full screen! No more hitting the maximize button for you!
  • F6 (hold) - CPU/ memory usage bar! Spikes for CPU/ red box for memory, I think!
  • F5 - third person mode!
