Raspberry Pi Project 1

The first, and probably easiest task I set out to do was to host a Minecraft server on my Raspberry Pi.  This was actually probably one of the easiest of my projects, which has now expanded into at least 4 different ones.  I typically can run 1-4 people on the Minecraft Server without too much of a problem.  I do notice however it does sometimes take 1/2 a second to show blocks that have been destroyed.  This may sound tedious, but after a few tries to get to use to it and move on.  TNT on the other had takes 2-3 seconds, but with that big of an explosion, it’s really not that big of a deal.

If you are curious what it plays like, here is a link to a YouTube video of it:  http://youtu.be/BAJzsAbD8x0

If you want to setup your own on a pi, feel free to follow this tutorial as it is is useful for end to end installation of the server: http://goo.gl/ZUZZi

If you want to run the client version on the Pi, it can be found here: http://pi.minecraft.net/

Got any questions, I’ll be glad to try to help.  Message me here or in the comment section of the YouTube video.
