Devouring Darkness: Whitelisted server now open

Map pre-generation is ongoing. I’ll open the server on Friday August 12. I’ll provide the host information and open the whitelist then.

Sneak peek of the new map:

Brief glimpse outside my test base during a bolt of lightning:

I will host a whitelisted Devouring Darkness server for the next 3-6
months for players who want to play together.


Typically our gaming group collectively builds a small “Spawn” base for safety and early game food. Then each of us will pack our bags and head off into the wilderness to create our own base. Please treat the spawn base with respect as it’s a shared resource. Refill what you take before you leave.

I plan to participate in securing an early game spawn base, and then I’ll depart to make my own. Others are welcome to stay, share, and upgrade spawn if they can work together.

Our group tends to enjoy civilizing a continent. We’ll want to collaborate on projects to link everyone’s bases with roads, nether routes, and trade. Mail service in-game is provided.

    plenty of space!

I’ve enabled the server! Myself and my son are starting a spawn base. =]


I might be driven to properly install MC again to try this out, would be interesting to see the server if you want to whitelist me (name is as matches here). ^.^

Have a dynmap link yet?


Nice. Our four players have secured a community base with food and basic smelting. We’re all saving up to go make bases this week. Starting food is hard in a tropical forest, there’s no space for the Pam’s gardens to spawn.


Up to 10 players now, about half that active. Spawn base has a secure food supply and early smelting. Everyone’s starting to branch out to make bases!

Plenty of room for new players. =]


Two more players joined up! Woo!

Both went full Rambo off into the wild. Amazing!


Haha, what’d they end up doing?

One is well set SW of spawn. I went and helped him build a moat and wall to demonstrate why they are needed. I think he’s ahead of me now in tech.

The other settled into a GT tower with his daughter, both playing intermittently.


Server updated to v423.

Be sure to copy over your journeymap, option, and saves to the new instance.


Updated to v426. Careful updating!


One more bump, up to v429.
