Setting Up My New Personal Minecraft Server

I do love playing Minecraft, and have run my own single player server for years. Mostly so I can play an where.

Since I recently had too reinstall my server I thought I’d list of setup steps here – for the next time I have too set it.

First things first, the seed. I’m a huge fan of Hermitcraft, so failing all else I’ve chosen to use the same seed -9095450570362222980. Since I’m all about the big automated builds, after setting up my map I increased the amount of redstone available and moved spawn too 400 65 -727.

The next step was setting up the map. Using WorldBorder I set the map radius to 3000 blocks ‘/wb set 3000 3000’ they pre-built the world ‘/wb fill’ and ‘/dynmap fullrender’.

The final thing I had too do was join up it testing world. Thanks to Multiverse Portals these simple commands joined up in world’s

Week 19 Day 5 – More Huel Adventures

My Huel ‘experiment’ was never going to be a five-day all in blast, there are already more than enough of them online, and so I continue this week.

Last week’s take away was taste above all else. In order to make this switch I’ve got to get a flavour that works for me. Huel provides their own ‘flavour system’ – Mocha, Chocolate, Strawberry, Toffee, Pineapple & Coconut, Banana, Rhubarb & Custard, Cacao and Metcha Tea. So I’ve been trying them out from the trail pack. I’m not good at five-star ratings, and don’t think they tell you much without something to compare them with so I’ll rate each flavour in four questions

  • Did it taste as advertised?
  • Did you like it?
  • Would you have it again?
  • Would you recommend it to a friend?

I’ve still got three of the nine flavours to try so I’ll give a full report on a couple of days.

Since it’s now been a full two weeks since my first Huel let’s compare weight. When this all started I weighed 190.6 lb today I check in at 189.2 lb. These numbers aren’t the be all and end all but since I’m in this for weight loss it’s important part to consider.

I’m now replacing both breakfast and lunch with Huel so next week we’ll need to do another weigh-in and see where we’re at.

But as a non-scale victory I’m delighted to say I’ve all but stopped snacking between meals.

After three full weeks in Huel I can say I’ve been happy with the results. I’ve lost some weight and I’ve got my snacking under control. But it’s not been without same strange side affects.

I think I will keep using the Huel, but I don’t see me ever going to 100% Huel, only breakfast and work lunches.

What about you? Are you a Hueler? What’s been your experience? Let me know down in the comments section.
