Just a reminder: Switchcraft is still only four days old. Let me know what the player count is in a few weeks.
It's been about 2 months now, and the player count reached 32 today. By being worried that it will end soon, you are missing out on months of collaboration and fun! And the server has secured enough donations to run for many more months. You don't deserve to miss out on that, come join in and see what everyone is staying for!

#275364 Doom - CC's first 3D FPS (with online highscores)

This game is a masterpiece, a shining demonstration of your API, and a jewel among gameplay experiences in ComputerCraft!!

#275320 Old Server

You may be able to ask them for an old world, or a part of it, if it was sentimental to you. Wouldn't hurt to try

We need one, universal server

the CC community would be (at least temporarily) revived, to Mid LuaLand era levels
There already is one universal server. Just look at the CC server tracker, it's just one server with occasional others getting a player or two.

I've got a question - what versions of ComputerCraft are we allowed to use? The latest 1.80? What about PR builds such as this one? Would it be possible to modify ComputerCraft itself as part of your submission?

Personally, as long as you say what version or provided the modified JAR I'm fine with whatever.
Then the modification should happen in the week I reckon? As you can add more API calls that way
Yes that would be okay, or you can use modifications that were published before the announcement date (edit: including the PR builds yami is asking about, as long as it is from before the announcement)

CCJam 2017

Live Countdown

CCJam is an annual ComputerCraft competition held every summer since 2013! It is a place for ComputerCraft users and enthusiasts from all skill levels and time periods to see what they can make. Even you, reading this right now, are welcome to participate.

Every participant creates a program that runs in or around ComputerCraft on their own during the time period. Once the time period ends, all the submissions will be judged by members of the community in high standing. They will comment on and analyse your work, giving you their insight into your program which you can use to shape your skills and become an even better programmer in the future.

In addition to these comments and scores, the top 3 highest rated submissions will win prizes called "medals" - they are graded gold, silver and bronze respectively - and they will distinguish you and your work and put you in the hall of fame with other medalists from years past.

There will be 5 judges and all of them will score and comment on your work. Here is a list of this year's judges:
  • 3d6
  • oeed
  • nitrogenfingers
  • 1lann
  • apemanzilla
This year's competition will run from Saturday, August 12 to Saturday, August 19. You can find a live countdown on ccjam.ceriat.net.

Want to join?
All you have to do if you want to participate is reply to this thread saying you want to! You may optionally decide to post a link to a GitHub or other repository that you can upload your completed program to at the end of the competition. Traditionally, particpants have streamed their progress live on Twitch or YouTube, and though this is completely optional, if you like you can leave your stream URL in a post too. Finally, you can choose to represent a ComputerCraft server of your choice - just mention your favorite one. It has to either be currently online or planning to be online. You can also choose to just participate independently.

Remember not to start working on your projects until midnight UTC on August 12! You can use any API released before the date of this post, August 5.

When you have finished, just make another post to this thread with a link or paste to your submission. Mind the deadline!

I will be answering any questions in this thread, and there will probably be a live group chat set up before the event begins.

What happens when you have a database with pretty much every combination of letters and numbers up to 32 characters? Fun :D.

(I is comming 3d6)

In case anyone was nervous, a database of that size would require 65,150,009,139,058,228,497,766,923,716,720,797,655 TB of storage (w|a)

#268116 Computercraft is dying.

I think what would seriously help this community is if we went back and held "CC Jams" hosted by well-known Computercrafters and then maybe advertised Computercraft to the modded community as a whole by making an enticing video of the winner(s) and posting it on the FeedTheBeast forums/reddit, as well on information on how those players can get started with Computercraft and potentially join a CC Jam themselves. One thing about CC Jams though is that they should definitely be hosted by a "veteran" member. I do recall there being many such CC Jams but they ultimately did not gain the traction they expected until oeed hosted one with properly layed-out rules and format.
CCJam 2017 is scheduled to begin in August. And oeed has never hosted a CCJam, but has appeared as a judge in two of them and will judge for a third time next month. I hosted CCJam 2016 last year, which is probably the "properly laid out" one you are talking about, and I am hosting it again this year.

I'd like to think of CCJam as a reunion as well as a competition, because we may find that old CC users come back to CCJams as that one time of the year where they check up on the community and see what they can make. For example, 1lann and Nitrogen Fingers, who are largely inactive today but have been very influential community members in the past, are both planning to come to CCJam 2017 as judges.

Umm... Guys? Did I break something? The work is at 100,000.

100000 is the easiest possible work number (larger is easier)

krist has been down for 16+ hours now, (there replacing the hardware apparently so it should be up at the end of today)
Our dedicated server's hard drive is failing, so krist and some 100 other services will be down today
We don't expect any data loss
