    This is true, however I would love to see it as a toggle option server side. Check box to activate falling damage and drowning.

    Props to Bindi for that huuge hall under contruction, its already looking pretty epic :p Now that I've discovered /sethome, i might be able to start my bridge approximately here: (in red)

    [​IMG]

    I suspect I will use the area to the north east to mine for blocks, or is it possible for an admin to give me some? If so , that'd be sweet :)

    Thanks

    EDIT: It appears that the island that was to be the destination of my bridge is already owned (by stewb) so i will find a better location :)

    EDIT x2 : Ok, new location will be the one in orange (red is original plan that was scrapped). started laying the foundation of sand, for me to build on top. Is that the fastest way to do it? or is the some way of building in thin air?

    We can give some ;)

    Although feel free to level the rest of the area behind my new structure if no one is around :D

    And a diagonal bridge - you're very brave! Just claim that whole Island and develop it! :thumb:

    well ive done some tinkering on the tunnel near downtown. with bindis permission, 985323 knocked down his half-built structure where the tunnel had ended. then i attempted to make a double curve WITH a dip to weave the tunnel past downtown and point it in the direction of the bumper boats and spleef arena beyond. the inner radii of the second curve needs some work but for the most part i think i was able to maintain the tunnels shape.

    the next problem is if we take the tunnel through the mountain toward the spleef arena, stickehs boat dispenser and the docks lie directly in the path...

    You can build in thin air by laying the first block down on solid ground, then jump on top of it. Keep <shift> pressed, walk to the edge of the block and just keep walking backwards as you lay new blocks down. Keeping <shift> pressed will keep you from falling off the edge.

    Thanks for the tip re: building in thin air :) Ok so ive explored a bit, cleared a bajillion trees... and discovered the coolest waterfall , its impressively high. I'm gonna leave it there, and build the bridge starting from the stop of the waterfall. See pic : http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/2305/waterfallstart.jpg

    So yeh, i'm a little excited about the bridge :p

    EDIT: Finished first row across the top, now I can actually start sculpting a bridge of sorts (http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/4606/firstcrossing.png)

    Once completed, it should look somewhat like this : http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a369/canberraboy/P1030805.jpg

    I'm off to bed, good night all :)

    You're off to a good start. I think your bridge will look quite spectacular crossing there.

    Have you seen the two other bridges we built on the old server?
    I hope they'll get transported across soon along with all our other stuff.

    Edit: On a different note. Once I'm done with my casino, I want to build this: http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fil:Turning_Torso_2.jpg How to realize it in Minecraft though...

    Never saw the bridges on the old server so hoping they do come across to this one so I can see them

    I am not sure how you will be able to recreate that building? I am guessing that it should be possible but due to the blocky look of Minecraft it might look a bit strange close-up although from a distance it should look ok

    I really need to get back on and do some more work on my little house and decide what else to include there with it
    Just a heads up to say that I might not get on much over the next week or so as the other half decided we are having the week off for christmas shopping etc.....

    wicked,

    leave the tunnel and i'll get to it in a day or two. i'm planning to make it underground to allow more space above ground for building work.

    Fixed.

    Nice, but I'm not sure about the bit at the end - rather drastic ;)

    Oh trust me I've read just about everything from page one of this thread and understand the cautiousness towards giving out the IP. I've been doing more reading than writing on tech forums lately due to lack of time but I'll do my best. I used to be a moderator over at Overclock3D.net for a short while. But like I said life changed suddenly and I was no longer able to do so.

    Anyway keep up all the good and cool work! I've enjoyed seeing the progress from the cartographs and screenshots so far. :)

    the boat ride is cool. itd be neat if it started and ended in the bumper boat pond. then we'd just have to keep the pond stocked and all a guy would have to do is grab a boat and take a watervator up to the top of the ride.
