Ohhh, that looks awesome, Robert. My house looks good from there

Also makes me wonder about that cave towards the east. Is anyone doing something with it or is it just a natural formation? Looks impressive.

Re: Minecraft

You mean the cave to the south of the spawn area? I believe Cutter built his house near there.

Yeah, that's the one, I guess. Impressive

Holy crap, thunderstorm on the server and I've seen lightning hit trees and burn them.

Re: Minecraft

Some great stuff there everyone. I love those world maps. Reminds me the old Sim city games. Guess I need to download this thing.

I know its silly, but the thing with the wolves still bothers me. So dumb to get upset about a bunch of moving pixels. I guess I really need to stop playing while still recovering and tired from work.

Maybe someday I'll meet more of you guys. Of course that'd mena I'd also have to play sometime other than between midnight and 6AM.
Theres a chest next to my tree, and down the nearby shaft where I'll dump all my stuff. I'm mainly just using wood. So if anyone needs cobble, feel free to help yourself. Just leave my one stack for making tools.

To those posting the massive images, I hate you. You make side scrolling happen, it should be a capital crime to do that. They made thumbnails for a reason people, this it.

I actually keep a wolf in my old castle. He's probably lonely, sitting there, waiting for me to come home. I show up every now and then to pet him (and grab supplies, harvest my crops, etc.), but I haven't yet brought him to my new building area.
Right now, my wolf is sitting in a cave that my minecart track runs though. Every time that I travel to Bartlet Cove, she turns from left to right as I fly by, and every time I come back, she turns from right to left. It's cruel, yet funny.

It's a great tool alright, I've seen more of my world just messing around in it over the last day than I have playing the actual game. It sucks that the view distance in the game isn't anywhere near as good though. Maybe one day Notch will perform a miracle of coding and optimise it to allow for a 1km draw distance...



This is my primary landmass (I'm going to have to give my island a name some day) from 1km in the air. That snow showed up while I was playing a little while ago, which would be cool were it not so small and in any area I've barely ever been to.



I've started a new project now and I'm currently growing around 400 cactuses on a beach near Mount Vulcan for it. Now to find 500 sheep.

Yikes. Does it kill you or just do damage? (I haven't even experienced lightning in my world yet.)

I'm impatiently waiting for the "[1.4] Double/+50% View Distance mod SSP" to be updated. I'm not sure my PC can manage it (haven't tried it before), but I generally run 100+ fps with my current texture pack, so I think I can at least use the +50% view.

Re: Minecraft

I liked to tell myself that the wolves were running around and frolicking while I was sleeping, or off adventuring.

Just like I tell myself that since they're in a rainforest next to a desert, I'm doing all those sheep a favor by taking their wool.

Re: Minecraft

^ I occasionally wish there was a less... violent... way to collect wool. I always feel bad when I have to punch a sheep to collect its wool.

It hurts you. Takes 3 hearts away as far as I could tell. But on Robert's server, health regenerates, so it wasn't too bad. But on Singleplayer? That could easily mean death if you're not careful. Looked and sounded like a great big fireball from hell. It was so sudden, it took a moment to realize what had happened.

Re: Minecraft

That's kind of awesome that you can be struck by lightning, though.
