As far as Obsidian goes, I just gave up mining the stuff. If I need it, I'll just build a frame, fill it with lava, and pour a bucket of water over the top.

I presume that pink thing shown sticking out in the 1st-person point of view is a hand. I wouldn't want to think those maids are having to perform "extra" duties.

Ah, silly video game mechanics. Truly one of the best aspects of certain games.

Re: Minecraft

Hey everyone.

I have been a member of the Trek BBS since 2001 or so, but I have been a lurker for the past few years. I read this entire thread and got into Minecraft mainly from reading your posts.

I played on a server with a work friend, but we don't play anymore. In that world, my favorite build was a giant TARDIS that is a hollowed out casino on the inside. It has a pool on the top floor, so at night the windows of the TARDIS are lit by the water and glass. It has guest rooms, casino stuff and I took a redstone slot machine design from the web and customized it and inserted it into my TARDIS.

I did cheat in building the TARDIS in that I used a program that would create an object from a blueprint file...however it created a completely solid TARDIS, so it did take me weeks, maybe a month, just to hollow it out. And then to build the casino, which is lit entirely with glowstone, no torches.

Here is a photo gallery, approaching from the water level mine ride, to the first floor and exploring the inside. I particularly like the night shots of the exterior at night, near the end of the gallery.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1crw4s8xen0lrcd/hgKIIYieY1

Thanks for looking! Although y'all probably don't know me, remember that I have been lurking this whole time!

Thanks

Re: Minecraft

Our server is in the dead winter period, apparently.

You guys have any plans to come back anytime soon?

Re: Minecraft

My problem is that my favourite texture pack has a dead link, so I'm waiting for them to fix it. With the time it's taking though, it might not get fixed until the next update. So, that's my reason for not being on lately. That and I've been busier in general.

Re: Minecraft

Personally, I'm at a loss for what to do next. And with the interactive map dead, I can't see where anyone has built anything new to go and check out. With such a large map, it's would be difficult if not impossible to find anything without it.

I found a large underground sea of lava, poured water over all of it, harvested around 150 Obsidian all at once so I don't have to do it all later.
