Building the Titanic in Minecraft would be impressive, but do you know what would be more impressive? Building the Titanic in Minecraft in Minecraft.

Oh, we will, Lindley. It's on my mind, after we get the thing built. You can count on it.

Re: Minecraft

Started work on the Yamato last night. Based on what I've found, one block is approximately 1 meter, cubed. Yamato is 256 meters long (at the waterline, a bit longer from the top of the bow to the stern) and 39 meters wide. I've actually had to spend most of my time carving out a harbor big enough to support this thing and I actually have a lot of infrastructure to go before I start laying the keel. I'm shocked at how big that beast was and even more shocked at how they got it to float! I'll post pictures when I start making some real progress.

Re: Minecraft

Yes, the Minecraft world is meant to be made up of 1x1x1 meter blocks. Makes it easy to do things with realistic dimensions. I made a replica of Stonehenge that's more or less faithful to its actual size, although I made it square rather than round (and called it Cubehenge.) It was handy to have a map of its actual dimensions.

Re: Minecraft

Hah yeah, that's the kind of trouble I've had when trying to find a good spot for the Titanic. I wanted a good big body of water to house it in and I found it using the generated map combined with the minimap. Btw, don't know if you've been using it, but we have a tape measurer on the server that makes things like this much easier. If you already have a string, just type mt help, or if you don't, type mt tape.

Btw Robert, I found a cave that was explored near the Titanic. It more or less goes straight down. That wasn't your doing, was it?

Nope, I haven't done anything in that area. Dunno who did!

Re: Minecraft

Hey all - been trying to get into Minecraft today and the first time I try, it comes back with a red error (Can't connect to minecraft.net). Second try seems to make it, but then the screen gets jumbled and the whole system crashes. I've been running 1.7.3 for a while now and this is the first I've experienced this today. Any ideas?

Re: Minecraft

Damn, 1.8 is going to be out soon. I'm pretty excited; the Endermen (and observation thereof) might actually drag me back to single-player survival mode if Robert removes them from the server!

Re: Minecraft

I won't remove them right away. In fact, that won't even be possible until some plugins are upgraded. So, it should be an interesting time.

Yeah, afterall, I think it's better to observe how they work before we remove them. But curse them if they start dismantling the Titanic!

Re: Minecraft

What do you want to bet there's going to be some way to exploit them so that they mine for you? Because when pistons came out, I just knew there was going to be a duplication glitch, and sure enough one showed up...
