Makes me think of that new t-shirt mojang has...I wouldn't mind having that shirt.
The pyramid is quite useful; I have my base & tower near to it and its obsidian base can be seen in the distance to show my friends (non-crafters) what people can do. After the initial "wow"s I finally show them the map - "See the pyramid there? Now you get a sense of scale."
OK, the lag on anodal is just too frustrating. I'll try out necival's when I get permissions, but I have yet to see anyone playing there.
Anyone know of any other decent servers to try out?
Does the overground train thing link up to my subway somewhere? I seem to remember that it does but I can't remember where.
Also, I gave up on using boosters on my subway line. Just way too glitchy at the time in SMP.
Really? Am I the only one having little to no trouble with minecart travel?
The boosters on my railway work great. There's an uphill booster that fails somewhat rarely, but that's about it.
anodal: 1.5 - when? I have time to loose while I can't play Portal 2
Updated. Has it been out for long?
Running for me now, thanks - can't tell for the exact outage, because I took a short break to prepare food.
But please, try some admin message as in "System is going to shut down in X minutes" next time so I can read between the lines as "Do not venture into this dark cave right now" But all is fine; Thank you for the quick response.
(One minute in and already found a bug: that inventory achievement wont work if you have rebound your inventory key it seems -- Edit: correction - default doesnt work either, probably singleplayer...)
I'm interested to see how the weather effects will look.
Apparently if the server detects flying, you get kicked. I'd like to suggest turning that off, unless the consensus is that it should stay on.
I'd like to have the option, though. It's not like by flying I'll win at minecraft more than you.
It's not Minecraft unless it's tedious.
TOIL IN THE FIELDS CAIN
No, I quit because some people think fun involves cowering in a hole as hordes of creepers knock over everything, and my disagreeing with that assessment made me a target for ridicule. And I was being sarcastic in reference to Boxsmith's comment, anyway.
If that's on anodal, I'll see what I can do, I hope it's just a matter of configuration. I don't really mind people using flyhacks, I think that's their own choice whether it should have an impact on immersion or not.
@dethtoll, it is true that people reacted with derision as the unfortunate impression you gave was of throwing a fit. Still, that was just an isolated incident and if you ever plan to play MC again you should come by and see how anodal evolved. There are tons of nice stuff there, and monsters are nowhere as problematic as they were back then.
Frankly I can understand if you feel you're over Minecraft. I'm a bit sad it went through so many balance issues during the 2010-2011 transition because it is partly responsible for what made a lot of people quit eventually, myself included. Mojang forcing server updates in order to run the game has been pretty detrimental to servers which strived for stability.
I'm still stopping by from time to time but it's still pretty hard for me to decide to click that MeinKraft icon.
Even if you aren't using the fly hack you can be kicked if you do something simple like standing on a fence and jumping. At least with Bukkit anti-fly it would just reset your position instead of kicking you.
To allow flying on a server change the "allow-flight" option in your server.properties file to "true"
What's the deal with the new achievements thing? That sounds kind of lame. Ah well, I'll probably change my mind on that at some point.
I don;t know, Brethren. I was wondering the same thing myself. Achievements work really well in most games on Steam, XBOX 360 so maybe they will here too. I personally think Minecraft should go to PSN/XBLA when it goes gold.
