    Hi guys. I would like to play on a server with some of you, if that is at all possible. I'm pretty new to this, though.

    That would be great! Unfortunately we're having some server issues at the moment. We should be up and running on Friday though :P

    And in a recent, subsequent update, they are easier to break apparently. I'm glad for this, as stairs, when used properly, are super stylish, and I intend to use them a lot on my next big project.

    I already have a project planned after the pagoda, but while it won't be very tall, I'm afraid it will take many much space that I wouldn't want to take from other people. Of course, a great man once said, ""It wasn't impossible to build rapture at the bottom of the sea, it was impossible to build it anywhere else."

    (The project isn't Rapture, that's been done. I'm a weeaboo, so it'll be something between India and Hawaii.)

    So this is the usual situation at camp alpha. Every. Morning.

    Yes, that is 4 creepers. There is one above me too.

    Right after I took that picture I logged off for the night. When I started it back up somehow one of those creepers was standing right in front of me! Inside my base! That one blew up, and then the one who was right above me fell through the floor and I was dead. Creepers can mess stuff up, but nothing is worse than your main chest and crafting area gets asploded. I think "Simulating the world for a bit" really means "Finding some Creepers, showing them a picture of your nice glass house."

    Because I was sick of getting exploded every time I need to step out for some more logs, I decided to build full glass walls and ceilings near the exit of my main fort, that way I could see who was waiting outside. Of course that means that it gets exploded sometimes, which means harvesting sand, which means going outside with the creepers...and so on.

    I think it may be time for a lava moat. With cacti. That are on fire.

    Trenches. AT LEAST 2 blocks deep, all around your base. It will trap any creepers enough for you to actually smite them mightily with a sword.

    I discovered this when I made base with a natural cave in front of my door. imagine my glee when i'm all

    THEY CANT GET ME

    Here's what you do. Get fire. I don't care how you get it, just get it. Now, freeze that fire. Shape the fire ice into sharp spikes, so that when your enemies touch it, they are pierced, frozen and burned all at the same time. Now, soak that icefire spike in oil, and set that on fire as well. Now it has double burn with freeze+burn and stab.

    alternatively, build on a hill

    level the hilltop

    then at your floor level, walk around and destroy every block you can reach while still standing on your floor

    then build a "fence" a single block high around the entire flattened hilltop

    nothing can get in


    except skeleton arrows

    I had a creeper magically appear in Ft. Kickass.

    Right at the front door of the interior walls.



    Now there are a bunch of monsters in Ft. Kickass because I opened up one of those massive spaces underneath and there are things there, so I need to clear that out and mine it out. And make it into a nice pretty square.

    okay, who wants to ruin minecraft for themselves:
    listened to the soulja boy video via the news post, then continued minecrafting

    the fucking stone pick, mining coal (and probably other combos) happens to work out to the exact beat timing of the chorus

    So this patch introduced some bugs:

    block respawn bug: you have about a 50% chance of actually breaking a block, otherwise it just respawns! NEW FEATURE

    new chunks don't load while you're in a cart, and if you hit the edge of your local neighborhood in a cart your client crashes, and you get a clone of yourself there to greet you when you log on!

    minecarts and boats can't be destroyed except by driving/piloting them into lava.

    I don't know about anyone else, but my model keeps disappearing, I'm invisible on my screen 90% of the time (when in 3rd person mode).

    more to come...

    You sure the respawn bug isn't just lag? Because that happens to me all the time on laggy servers.

    It seems to be a very isolated, specific lag, but the reports are coming in from a lot of servers so it's not localized to any one machine/connection/player count.

    Edit: It's lag in that one specific area of communications between the client and the server, and it is definitely something introduced with this patch. Nuka and I had just about instantaneous everything else, but breaking blocks was random.

    Edit2: Sorry I did some ninja editing. I wasn't very clear before.
