Honestly though, I really wish there wa ssome sort of scafolding block. Its a PITA to have to mine, place, then break down all those damn dirt blocks.

On the problem of logging in a seeing the world fall, it's a non-issue. The game would be able to tell which chunks were generated pre-gravity and just tag them as such so the gravity won't happen on them. Everything you built is still floating.
Well that would certainly make the game a lot more challenging. Having to make sure your tunnels and structures are braced properly, just like the real world. Seems like it would be a nightmare to code though.

Ahh, gotcha. Sorry, I spend way too much time over on Fark.com. Where some people say stuff like this with a straight face.
