Anyone know about setting up a minecraft server on ubuntu for LAN play?

 

Think I have a correctly set-up server but cannot connect to it, any help appreciated

Most likely due to ports, check your router to make sure you have the ports forwarding properly.

I'm connecting via my home network not externally, why would I port forward?  I have a web server and a plex server and never had to port forward for them to work.

Checked the firewall isn't blocking it?

seems I can not connect the pocket edition to the server, installed the pocket version from here http://www.pocketmine.net/#get and it is working now.  I liked the webmin module of the full version :(

Minecraft on Xbox One, PS4, and PS Vita soon!

 

Xbox One

 

  • Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will be released on Xbox Live Marketplace in August. It brings significantly bigger worlds and a greater draw distance than Xbox 360 Edition.
  • It will include all the features from the most recent Xbox 360 title update.
  • Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will cost $19.99.
  • If you’ve bought Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition from Xbox Live Marketplace, or played online with the disc version, you will be able to upgrade to Xbox One Edition for $4.99.
  • You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.
  • Players with Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition saves will be able to import their worlds to Xbox One. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to transfer saves from Xbox One to Xbox 360. We can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems.
  • Cross platform play will not be possible between Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
  • Many, but not all, of the DLC skins and texture packs you’ve purchased for Xbox 360 Edition will be available for use in Xbox One Edition. We’d like to say all your DLC would transfer, but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We’ll have more on this soon.

 

PS3 + Vita

 

  • Minecraft: Playstation 3 + Vita Edition will be available on the PSN in August.
  • It will include all the features from the most recent Playstation 3 version, including online play on Vita.
  • This means everyone who has bought Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition from PSN will get it on Vita for free. Those fluent in Sony-speak might refer to the deal as “Cross-buy.”
  • We are working closely with Sony Computer Entertainment to look into ways to enable upgrade from the Blu-ray disc version of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition to Minecraft: Playstation 3 and Vita. We’ll have more info on this closer to release.
  • Minecraft: Playstation 3 + Vita Edition will cost $19.99.
  • It doesn’t matter if you buy for PS3 or Vita first, you own the game for both platforms.
  • Saves are transferrable between the Playstation 3 and Vita versions of Minecraft. You will be able to craft at home on your Playstation 3, then continue on the bus/toilet with your Playstation Vita.
  • All of the DLC you’ve purchased for Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition will work on Playstation 3 + Vita Edition.

 

PS4

 

  • Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition will be released on the PSN in August. It brings significantly bigger worlds and a greater draw distance than Playstation 3 + Vita Edition.
  • It will include all the features from the most recent Playstation 3 version.
  • Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition will cost $19.99.
  • If you’ve bought Playstation 3 Edition from the Playstation Network you will be able to upgrade for $4.99.
  • You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.
  • We are working closely with Sony Computer Entertainment to look into ways to enable upgrade from the Blu-ray disc version of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition to Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition. We’ll have more info on this closer to release.
  • Players with Playstation 3 Edition or Playstation 3 + Vita Edition saves will be able to import their worlds to Playstation 4. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to transfer your saves from Playstation 4 to Playstation 3/Vita. There are technical reasons for this; we can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems.
  • Cross-platform play will not be possible between Playstation 3 + Vita Edition and Playstation 4 Edition.
  • Many, but not all, of the DLC skins and texture packs you’ve purchased for Playstation 3 Edition will be available for use in Playstation 4 Edition. We’d like to say all your DLC would transfer but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We’ll have more on this soon.

The option to upgrade is good, wasn't expecting that from a game which prints money.

Being able to transfer your saves and move most dlc packs is huge for people that invested hours upon hours on a project.

Here’s a bit of good news for Minecraft and Xbox One fans. The immensely popular world-building game is coming to the Xbox One this August, and it’s also getting a few tweaks and upgrades along the way. Due to the limitations of the Xbox 360, created worlds could only go so far, and only certain scenes could be displayed. Experts are saying those things will no longer be a problem once the game moves to the latest Xbox console.

 

Beginning in August, Minecraft will sell for $20 from the Xbox Games Store. (At least it’s not going to cost $60)!

 

There’s also good news for those gamers who already own the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft – they won’t be required to pay the full price of the new game. For a year after the release, they’ll only have to pay $5 to make the switch. And, as an added bonus, everything they had on their old game will transfer over to the new game. That’s sure to be a relief to those who have spent hours upon hours creating their ideal pixelated world.

Minecraft has been in the news quite a bit lately as Denmark’s Government announced that their entire country had been created to scale within the game to encourage students to visit places that weren’t so easy to reach in the real world.

That's definitely a neat feature for allowing the transfer of worlds and a cheaper ugprade to the X1 edition.

Minecraft console editions together just passed Minecraft for PC/Mac. And across all platforms we've sold almost 54 million copies.
