Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Because our server is pretty exclusively people going off into the wilderness and building shitty towers out of cobble.

    You are never around! Look at the map, there's an extensive series of roads and houses lining spawn, complete with quarries and stuff. I generally build stuff with a group of friends from college but I take time to play with other people too.

    I've fucked off to several different kinds of nowhere so far

    or, not really nowhere though, just far enough from the nearest neighbour so that it doesn't feel crowded

    There's a bit of cognitive dissonance with companies people like. "I like company x, so they can't be bad." It's certainly not an intentional thought process, and I'm guilty of it, too. It's surprisingly common!

    We sort of have an ad-hoc network. There is a cluster of people building near spawn connected by roads, some people in far-flung places, lots of transit. Some people play in smaller groups of 3 or 4 and cooperate on stuff, some build off on their own. There's no structure really enforced.

    see that sounds more like my kind of scene

    none of this "excuse me sir i find your building to be two blocks higher than the height limitations for this zone please be advised it needs to be rectified, also your roof is made of wood instead of the accepted building standard of smoothstone half-blocks and that must be corrected"

    yeah great now your town looks like a bunch of samey bullshit with no vibrance and everyone who wants to build something not like that goes somewhere else, but never the same direction for two people

    ugh

    it... isn't, really

    i mean, some of us throw up sloppy shit while exploring... or have split-off projects after a while, like dk's atlantis or my sky farm

    but me, dk, vh, ares, chanus, and others are all connected and in walking distance

    and even people like you and sarksus are still only like a 3 minute run and very centralized with rail or road

    wilderness-wanderers are probably the minority, i'd say

    You're right, I should come back and make something even more impressive and innovative than my lava diamond.

    It's updating right at this minute so parts might look weird, but http://router7.selfip.net/map/

    If you zoom in really far, give it a minute sitting at a white screen to send you the pieces. I gave the map server low priority to keep the game running smoothly.

    the craziest structure I ever built in minecraft was like a 10x10 mini fort with walls like 6 stones high

    I'm like some failed civilization lost entirely to history amidst the pyramids and the parthenon

    I update only to official stable releases, so we will run 1.8.1 until a new client gets pushed out automatically. Not doing any of this prerelease business. In that sense, we probably won't be doing 1.9, since notch announced no more official releases until 11-11-11.

    question re: that

    the new Minecraft is gonna fuck up your map, dogg

    you may want to consider asking people if they'd be comfortable starting over

    because the rendering code for 1.9 is completely different and is only getting more different from there

    so i mean, you will be able to play a 1.8 map with whatever gets released on 11-11-11 but all the new chunks will be fucked up
