Barons of Bullshit
Barons of Bullshit is one of the longest running yet unknown Minecraft servers. Starting in 2009 with version 0.0.17a.
Several custom servers were used to expand upon the features of classic. There were many available, but here is Barons of Bullshits' history with them:
- First used was MincerCPP developed by founder vLK and developers Unison, Twdtwd, and Primis. The project fell apart when the idea to add multi-threading meant that many features had to be removed. The Developers moved on.
- Very briefly used was MCSharp.
- Next was MCZall, a mod of MCSharp, developed Zallist, Lawlcat, and Valek.
- There was MCLawl, which was founded by Lawlcat as Zallist passed on the MCZall project to him. During this time, many of our current veteran players joined us and a few are still administrators.
- Finally, our very own Vintage Soap provided us with a mod of MCLawl named MCBaron which had some fun custom coded commands.
Once Survival Multiplayer (SMP) was released with the addition of mobs, new custom servers had to be used.
- hMod by hey0 was the first SMP server we utilized, but because of Minecraft changes from Mojang and hey0's inactivity, hMod was discontinued and Bukkit was soon after released.
- Bukkit, the longest running SMP custom server was used by Barons of Bullshit for several years. Recently, Bukkit has ceased to release updates due to DMCA and legal issues.
- Spigot is a high performance server fork of Bukkit that existed throughout Bukkits' prime. It is now it's own entity which avoids DMCA and legal issues. This is what Barons of Bullshit currently runs as custom server software.
We aim to provide our players with a pseudo-vanilla survival PvE experience with minimalistic but fun mods. We do our best to configure these mods as to not sacrifice the feeling of Vanilla Minecraft. We take pride in being a smaller yet fun and close community. Grief is rare but also logged; it can be rolled back. Worlds have a long shelf life, starting from scratch only on every major game changing Minecraft update. Barons of Bullshit is small because we rarely advertise, operating normally by word of mouth.
- Do not: Teleport, or break into a home to kill or loot.
- Do not Grief farms, homes, bypass locked entries.
- Do not: Steal mobs from corrals or stables.
- NOTE: PvP, Looting Farms and Chests is ALLOWED. However, you must still adhere to Rule #2.
