Minecraft is an indie game, meaning the creators publish and run it themselves. If AG received a Minecraft serer, they would need to have AG co-publish it, ruining the "indie game" feel. I know AG doesn't co-publish a lot of their games, but I know they do to some extent with MMOs.

I think the ITT is to get a MC server for AG users only. Stuff where the factions led by me, Ernie, and ManlyMan can go to war and stuff using DIAMOND SWORDS!!

I honestly think it would be better to try to get some of AG's coders to make some custom mods so that this is partially created by the users. Just a thought, because regular pvp can get a bit dull after a few days.

It'd be perfectly possible, if someone really wants to go through the trouble (and potential financial investment!), since anyone can host a Minecraft server. But yeah, it'd most likely have to be a community-run server.

It's a neat idea to be sure, but it's more complicated than you'd think. In addition to making the mods to begin with, they'd need to regularly maintain and fix them when problems occur or new versions get released.

Quickbit - you can run a server off of an actual IP, right? Websites are actually IPs, right? If AG (this is a long shot, but hypothetically speaking) made a separate subdomain to host a MC server and used the MySQL database (given that they use MySQL, which I wouldn't be surprised, and since all of the usernames would be listed in there anyways, or if their MC username is different, contain a different data form for it, like Xbox Live and PS3 and Wii) to White-list all of the AG users, only the AG users White-listed would be able to join. If they did get the server running up like that - which I am certain is possible - all it would take is an AG account, the subdomain AG uses to host it, and a Minecraft account to connect.

Complicated? Unnecessary? Awesome? Yes to all three. ;D

I could also see someone in the community opening a server and keeping it just for us AG bros.

I think it's a good ideea to make something like this.I mean why does AG would make his own MC? I don't say that AG users to don't make their own servers that would be perfect of playing games with your AG friends. I say that the AG don't earn anything by working for a MC server but the AG users would earn a lot if THEY because not only that they would have their server (i think that every MC player would like to have one) but it is going to be one where only AG users would like.
So with this i say that WE should work for it and not AG.Maybe semone would make a forum tread or just invite everybody posting on their profiles a massage like :"Hey i just made a server for AG users and only AG users, send this to your friends and fill the server".this is my opinion if you think that we should just stay there and wait for other people to do our work say it.

I can build a members system that requires logins, and I know how to let users connect utilizing alternate usernames and passwords, much like how someone can login to RuneScape using their Facebook account.
It's virtually the same setup.

Then again, I have a life, so don't count on me. xD

Well, knowledge of decent coding, WinRar, and some of he simplest graphics, and there's a mod. To be honest, as long as there's not a major change to Minecraft, such as the actual engine, or a line of code that alters the game in such a way, routine updates to said mods won't be necessary.
Obviously the first few weeks/months will demand a couple of touch-ups, but isn't that in any game?

Not sure if it would be able to recognize all of this.

Isn't this what we wanted?

It wouldn't have to recognize all of it; just the data from the Minecraft username form. That's the info that the server white-lists with.

But, whatevs. They'd probably have less time to work on it than Sal would, so :P
