Re: Minecraft

Maybe I jumped the gun on making that hardcore world for us! Although it'll probably be quite a while before 1.7 comes to Bukkit.

Re: Minecraft

Doesn't look like people have done much with it yet, maybe just do a reset when it comes?

In any event, I'll be back then as well. Having a go at FTB in the meantime.

Re: Minecraft

Looks like a recommended build of 1.6.4 actually came out a few days ago, so I can finally go install that. And then 1.7 will come out and it'll be months again...

Re: Minecraft

So, for those of you who've played on Robert's server, you're all familiar with its spawn point, or Ground Zero as I like to call it. Recently, with the help of the Multiverse plugin allowing multiple worlds, we have another survival world, a creative world, and a hardcore world, which led to talks about a portal hub on each of the worlds. But where to put it on our initial world? That was the question. But I had a vision in mind and I set out to remodel the spawn point with the help of Red6 and Sticks.

First of all, I knocked down the brown walls and opened it up. I went with a Quartz theme to give it a sense of style. Here's the fountain:


Our world is grand, so why not show it off when first spawning:


I made best use of the stone environment around me. I've built little nooks which I've layered with chiseled quartz, and as Red6 suggested a little leaf for colour


And here's the double-staircase which Red6 helped me with. This leads to the second floor where the world portals will be located:


And then we come upstairs:


Looking down on the fountain from above:


And if we turn around, you see the detail done with the stairs:


A lot has developed in recent months. So, why not come back and see what you've missed?

I signed back up! I'll probably occasionally sign on with my boyfriend mostly to explore. He's never played Minecraft before so this should be interesting. Hope to see you guys around the server!

Re: Minecraft

Massive apologies for asking, but my son wants to play in his map with me and we've been unable to connect by any method I know of. He's on a Desktop with Win 7, and I'm on my laptop with Win 8, and we both have seperate accounts. I've tried the normal Multiplayer scan method, the Direct Connect method, we're both connected to the Homegroup and I can see his computer and vice versa.....
Yes, I'm not that knowledgeable about networks, but I've read and tried all the stuff on the different fora and nothing has worked? The only thing I haven't tried is starting a server, but mostly because I'd want to know more before doing something like that.

Re: Minecraft

Check your Windows Firewall settings on both systems. Make sure you have exceptions for Minecraft set up. Let me know if you need more details and I can look into it further.

Re: Minecraft

I am ... And if you went from 1.4.x to 1.7.x you're going to find a ... ahem ... world of difference. I'm really enjoying the new terrain generation. Some of the new biomes are quite lovely. Then there are the new wood types and blocks, stained clay and glass ... flowers ... the game has really evolved into as much of a building/design game as it is a survival one.

Re: Minecraft

I've already mined some quartz and started extending my railroads out to find new biomes, but my main world is big enough as it is (65mb+).

It looks better than ever, my laptop seems to disagree, melting down as its starting too with the improved graphics it has to load.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I have to keep my rendering distance between 8-12 chunks or else my iMac has a few fits of its own. Fortunately, the haze/fog effect looks great!
