    I'm with DL, MrsF and Peter on this one. I really don't mind putting the effort in to make a tunnel/waterway underground all the way between the two regardless of the distance. In fact, I'd enjoy it if we have a team on the go. Was good fun tonight working with MrsF, Wixi and DL on some new buildings. So a tonne of people all mining/blasting their way to the old town would be fun too.

    So I vote sticking it in some unexplored section currently.

    for example, I can get to the snow zones in the north-east in under 6 minutes via water. It's really not far at all.

    Someone suggested we send XM off with supplies. I like this idea, and think we should go with it. He is sent off to travel for four days and four nights in one direction. Wherever he ends up, we set spawn. Then he sets monster spawn rates to max, and we all stand in the middle of no-mans land (between PC's and Peters) and one by one as we die, because our our food/supplies/ammo dwindle, we wake up in the new place!

    Some may call it....

    the Zombie Apocalypse!

    Instead of mass suicide how about we just travel with XM?

    i also thought...if the floating islands were the way to go...that we would be building over water?

    i rather like the nearer locations. i have too much going on at my place to abandon it completely and running back and forth for 4 MC days would suck. as a result, i probably wouldnt build anything at the new spawn. and, like XM, i dont see the point in running off into nowhere to set a new spawn?

    Well gents. I've decided to dip my toes, feet, legs, knees and face into Minecraft and after two hours of getting used to things on a private server with friends. I have decided to make a fortress... also known as The Imperial Palace.

    This could be fun...

    Sadly, this is true. I work out of the country. The worst part is the horrible internets. :sigh:


    Can't wait to see the new development in the SMP server. I do like the idea of XM going off and taking the supplies with him. Would be a cool apocalypse scenario.

    Aw crap!
    After finally being able to play a little, I no longer seem to be able to log on. :(

    Edit: I get the impression our Creative server has been shut down. :S Hm, will try again later.

    Nice pics Kroy! I liked the lava-knives - a lot to learn from that. My next trap I'll build the actuall knife much closer to collection-point. This to ensure that the loot stays longer at said point. Or does anybody know/experienced that dropped items in motion (ie. moving in water) takes longer to disappear than items just laying on the ground (I was thinking in the lines of a time-out that doesn't get set until the items have stopped moving)

    At the same time, having the spawn-area some distance from the collection-point so that monsters do spawn. Think I've read here at the forum that they spawn between 44 and one-hundred-something.. ..is that counted in all directions, like upwards and downwards also?

    Default is 200 mobs (passive included) and is counted on all active (i.e. has players on it) chunks (all levels of a chunk)

    what? no! i certainly hope not!

    why wont they update the creative server? ive been wanting to play around with music blocks since beta but its impractical on survival :(

    EDIT: also, 200 aggressive mobs and like 20 passive mobs at any given time (so says wiki).

    That's usually the MC.net login servers being lame. It's been happening constantly ever since they did the server move which was supposed to "alleviate" the problem, though it's only made it worse.

    Yes, they're still awaiting a working update to hmod - or a working alternative.
