EVO Minecraft MOOC 1.16.2 server


Our server hosted by Aaron Schwartz is running Minecraft version 1.16.2


As of Sept, 2020

The EVO server is running Minecraft version 1.16.2



Important catch: The latest version of MC is 1.16.2 or maybe even higher when you read this

You'll need 1.16.2 in order to play on the EVO server until and if it is upgraded

To change Minecraft versions using the new launcher, in August, 2020, here is what you do ...





At this time, you want 1.16.2. That could change, so stay tuned ... 









Video showing how to set your PLAY profile in an older version of the Minecraft Launcher


These video instructions show profile settings to 1.12.2 but the concept translates to the new launcher


Olivetree made a 3:38 min:sec video to show you how to change your profile from the latest version to ours, 1.12.2

And you can try following the instructions below the video, but note that the new Minecraft launcher has changed its appearance slightly, though the principle is the same.



Text and visual instructions for profile settings (in a previous version of the Minecraft launcher)


If you want to refresh your knowledge without watching the video again, try following these instructions



If necessary, create an appropriate profile in your Minecraft launcher, as per this screen shot




How to connect with our server at mc.evomc.net


Video instructions for server connection


Olivetree made a 5:28 min:sec video to show you how to connect with the EVO Minecraft Server once you have the correct profile running

And you can try following the instructions below the video.



Text and visual instructions for server connection


If you want to refresh your knowledge without watching the video again, try following these instructions


  1. Run Minecraft and select "Multiplayer"

  2. Click "Add Server"
  3. In "Server Address" type in the IP address of our server mc.evomc.net and then select "Done".
    1. Be careful there are no extra spaces before or after the server name
    2. Extra spaces will be significant and will not connect you with our server
  4. Write in the server name EVO 2020 or whatever you wish to call this server

The above image can be found in our G+ Community under Server Information


4. From here click on the server EVOMC 2021 (or whatever you called it) and then click the button "Join Server".



If you get a connection error, click REFRESH and try again.


Thanks to EVOMC19 co-moderator Aaron Schwartz for setting up and maintaining the EVO server

from a nether portal in his office at Ohio University, Athens, Georgia.


Dakotah Redstone's Haliwell server


This notice was posted on Discord on Sept 17, 2020



Hosted by Dakota Redstone, the server was the center of half the activities scheduled in the last months of EVO Minecraft MOOC 2020

Dak worked in tandem with Carole Rainbow to welcome newcomers to their server


It was a pure survival server. When you arrived, you would  be in diapers, have no accumulations from previous game play, and feel a bit frustrated, like going out and punching a tree or something.


You could tell it to the Golem



But Dak or Carole were usually on hand to shepherd newcomers to the experience, and they had set up a welcome area where essentials were available. Playing in pure survival mode gave us insights into how Minecraft could be used in this mode with students to help develop critical thinking and cooperation skills, because students would have to develop strategies for coping with respawning empty handed, such as quickly creating shelters, stocking them with chests, storing critical gear in them to speed re-entry after the next respawn event, and finding light so they can work, protected, in the dark.


It's easier when you play with others and tasks can be shared and delegated.


If Dak mounts a similar effort for 2021 we'll let you know. Meanwhile we thank him for his many contributions over the years to EVO Minecraft MOOC and for all we have learned from him.






Minecraft is constantly coming out with updates, so instructions and server details may go out of date here.
