Just got back into this mod and was a wondering if there were any Australian servers being run. The servers page could benefit from some sort of way of identifing where a server is being hosted. Im looking for something i dont have 100 ping on as minecraft (being a java game) doesnt do well with bad connection.
As an Australian, I think I can answer that question. Our internet is absolutely terrible. It runs on 30 year old copper phone lines and has capped data. Servers not hosted in Australia tend to lag more than ones that are, sometimes by a game-breaking amount.
I play on the official server and from what I can tell the only real hinderance is PvP (of which there is a lack of). Even if there was an Australian server, I would rather put up with lag and play with more people. The Official server always has at least 5 people on at any given time.
I just love this. Plus, if you meet an american and they don’t know that drop bears aren’t real tell them that they only attack people who aren’t considered Aussie and the only way to deter them is to paint yourself head to toe in vegiemite.
