    Jesus Meta, you weren't kidding about that pile of iron. I've got about 10 stack going now, and I've probably only got half of it. And that's not counting what's on the lake bed.

    Edit:

    Ein, what did you do?

    Took me a while to excavate this:

    ...and guess where that hole leads.

    :oops:

    I must have fucked up a replace operation or something and swapped out one of the regular blocks like gravel that exists in that area for Iron.

    Well, I guess it could be worse.

    I don't get the point of mining for Iron for this rail... does everyone know that /iron is a command, and does spawn iron bars in front of you? Get everyone together in a circle, and it's a veritable bukkakke of iron flying out into a pile for whoever's building the thing to pick up and use.


    Edit: I'm ashamed to use the word "bukkakke" in this sense... but dammit, I'm leaving it.

    So ... I found out on accident that lag can give you free resources. If you cut a stack in half just as it lags you will remain holding the half you cut but the other half will revert back to a 64 stack. Several seconds later I also found out that this same process can delete your entire stack from existence. Oh well, it was just cobblestone anyway.

    Seeing as the past two nights I couldn't get on Ein's server, I've been hanging out on DiannaoChong's server and have been growing the largest tree house and castle I can. :D I started out with a 9x9 grid of saplings, of which only a couple didn't grow, and a few grew into those giant trees, then on top of those trees I've been planting more saplings as I can get them and trimming the leaves back around the sides to form walls. Sure, it's entirely flammable, but it's HUGE and awesome. :D

    If someone does ever set fire to it I hope that A: I can kick their butt for ruining it and B: I can be there to watch the glorious fire because it will be huge..

    edit: And because I haven't been mining, I've been doing it all with wooden tools. lol. I feel green since I've been replanting trees I've cut down, planting new trees, and using only renewable resources..

    edit2: Will trees grow with torches if they have no sunlight? (if I grow them under a canopy of leaves, but use torches to light around them?) I want to fill in the gaps somehow.

    edit3: HOLY COW. I think I just grew an ENT! I was trimming back a large tree that had grown way off to the side when suddenly it went from day to night. I look up and there's this HUGE tree above me. I climbed up to the top of the other trees in the area and still couldn't see where the top was. From what I can see it's at least 12-13 blocks tall, and another 15 or more blocks wide. The main trunk is 5 tall, then it has 5 branches coming out from there in all directions. Unbelievable!

    Nope. Damage, buckets, and minecarts don't work in SMP at all, on any server. But perhaps tomorrow?

    EDIT:

    Question about TNT blocks. Do they always explode with the same radius? I built a few and tried a couple of test blasts. One of them I couldn't tell how big the explosion was due to the odd geometry of the cave I set it off in. The other one blew up a 3x3 cube of stone. Is that the standard blast radius or is it random like creeper explosions?

    Minecarts don't work in Multiplayer, and Zombies can spawn, but there isn't any damage done in multiplayer (i.e. if you fall, catch on fire, or are attacked by mobs, it doesn't hurt you)

    Tnt will explode in a 3X3 grid if it's completely enclosed, but if there are open spaces, the explosion will expand outward. Kind of like real explosions.

    To whoever has the castle on Ein's server north of the spawn with the long incomplete bridge back towards spawn:

    I connected my garden to the road in front of your castle with a small path. So, congratulations, you now have a nature trail!

    Also, I'd be willing to help you finish the bridge, since it'll give some nice access to my area.

    Seems to be random. I've seen a clump of leaves hang on for days at a time while others are almost gone by the time I finish punching the tree down.

    I got one two blocks wide last night. It was wierd. I'm still not sure if that is somehow two trees next to each other :P

    Also I seem to be growing some absolutely monster trees somehow. Like HUGE trees with tons of branches. They are pretty awesome. I am tempted to build a tree fort in one :D

    Probably two trees next to each other. As long as there's enough vertical clearance trees will grow next to one another. You can't plant them immediately adjacent as saplings, but once a tree grows you can plant a sapling right beside it. Have to trim back the leaves of the already-extant tree, though, or the sapling won't grow.

    Yeah, the trunk was only 1 block wide, but 5 blocks tall before you see branches (same wood as trunks, but freefloating from the ground and attached to leaves/trunk) that come off from center and spread out. I'll take a shot of it if I get a chance.

    Guess I'm one of the few immune to Minecraft's charms. I'm already bored shitless of this game. I love the whole day is peaceful, night is dangerous, killer mobs idea. I don't think I could play the game without mobs. But during the day it always feels like I'm in a rush to get shit done before night falls (as the day seems way to short) which takes the relaxing angle out of the picture.

    Guess it just doesn't strike the right balance for me. Oh well! Back to LoL and Dragon Age!
