    What height is the squid tank at? They changed the squid spawning algorithm a while back so that they only spawn between levels 45-62, in order to prevent them from spawning in absurd locations like they used to. It's possible that that's what broke the squid tank, if the spawner isn't somewhere between those levels then squid might not be able to spawn. Just a guess. :shrug:

    The Zoo is around level 70 so that's probably it.

    If that's the case, then we might want to build a new one underground somewhere, Phil.

    Hmmm, I'll look into that then.

    Is there a list anywhere of people's TrekBBS names and corresponding Minecraft IDs? I'm having a hard time keeping everyone straight.

    And just in case anyone didn't know, mine is brickmaster5000 (thanks to my son for that name :rolleyes:).

    Off the top of my head, some of the names that aren't identical. ..

    RobertMaxwell = gorzek
    B.J. = brickmaster5000
    Saturn0660 = stickhands
    Cutter John = pandaphil
    Owain Taggart = Smoothfonzo
    Kestra = hivedev

    Yep, that's me. I user Pandaphil for damn near everything else. I wanted something different when I signed on here.

    Thanks Kes. Yeah, I've been meaning to add it to my signature on the Minecraft forums, but I keep forgetting.

    Kes forgot one:

    Dac = DangerousDac

    But I think that's it!

    Oops, I just think of him as Dac so I forgot that the name was different. It was actually a little difficult for me to get the full names down because I don't call anyone by their full screenname, so it took me a second to remember them!

    Suffice to say, I've got more ink sacs and slime balls than I think I'll ever need! :rolleyes:

    Yeah, there was a lot of lag last night. I was wondering if it maybe was due to that or if it that happened later after I had gone.

    No, the only lag was before the spawners got adjusted to a reasonable volume. Actually, I only noticed it happening once myself.

    FYI, some of you know that I was sharing the "brickmaster5000" account with my son. Well, I finally went and fixed that and got my own account, so now my Minecraft ID is "rabbit_13".

    I gave it a whirl today. I didn't do much, just patching up the village in my SP world with the new blocks. I especially like the new sideways logs, the roof of my inn is now finally as I originally intended it! There are a few MP bugs that I noticed, such as mobs randomly melting through the floor, and on two occasions I took damage for no discernible reason, but nothing majorly screwy so far.

    Sideways logs? Mind posting a screenshot? Sounds very interesting, not to mention very useful :)

    Yeah I saw that. The sideways logs were a last minute addition.

    I kinsa like the cocoa pods. I got a texture pack that has them in green/yellow/red. So they add a nice bit of color to my jungles. Also made a couple of Enderchests, but damnit, my game must be cursed, because I keep clicking the wrong buttons by mistake and losing them.

    What I really want to do is find a village and do some trading. But sadly, they seem to be few and far between in my SP world.
