Minecraft Console Client

  1. I found a useful utility here:

    http://www.minecraftforum.net/forum...c-linux-minecraft-console-client-1-8-3?page=2

    I would really like to be able to use this during non-peak times when I just need to go online to talk to someone and don't feel like waiting 5 minutes for Minecraft to load, or when I want to be able to chat AND do something else too without having my computer spend 2 minutes paging back and forth.

    Another useful example would be to continue a conversation with someone on another account while I need to be on one particular server to deal with something someone else needs. (Using two accounts.) Finally, a utility like this is useful for social situations where I don't want to be perceived to be playing a game and face all the negative stigma people seem to tack onto that, but I still want to converse with people and answer queries or hear what's happening.

    Ordinarily there are a lot of times when I want to stay online in case people have questions for me, however I have to close the Minecraft client because it's a big and bloated piece of software.

    The tool doesn't let you do anything else other than chat, so it's basically just a lightweight version of the Minecraft client. It doesn't do anything you can't do with the normal client. I didn't see it on either the approved or disallowed mods list, and I didn't want to get in trouble.

  2. if you have python, worth checking out ammars version: https://github.com/ammaraskar/pyCraft

    I used it to simulate load testing before (bots branch let me spam tons of clients into server)

  3. Does this mean it's okay to use?
  4. Oh, that looks very useful indeed!
