    @ deathrow, i'm not entirely sure what the underdark is. I get where you are comming from proyebat, so I will continue posting.

    I saw a vid for the rapture server a while back and it looked awesome to me. It took me longer than I thought it would to find info on the server. Now I finally have so I posted here :P

    Once again my steam id is cryptokidfh.

    Ah, you're talking about Ein's server. Unfortunately he stopped hosting it a couple months ago a little after those Rapture videos, due to a performance bug. Ein has said that he will reopen the server once it gets fixed.

    So one fun thing about digging a 50x50 hole to bedrock is the pig and cow rain I get every now and then.

    Oh darn, well I still wouldn't mind checking out the other server mentioned. Hopefully that server can go up again soon. Also, can anyone explain to me how rapture was built in such a deep ocean there? I think I read somewhere you had to excavate it? How did you go about doing that?

    Bugger. I'd love to send Vic a message, but his inbox is full. And I don't want to reveal the seeeeeccrets before they've been completed. Suggestions?

    Do spiders take drop damage? Or do they just start climbing down cliff now? I haven't been paying attention. I suppose there are better ways of making murder machines.

    Yeah there are a lot of levels of cool minecraft stuff.

    You've got the crazy huge built from scratch stuff.
    The neat stuff imported from another source (Kinect models, enterprise blueprints, CPU models)
    And there are the cool stuff made by a bunch of people working together (like the underdark)

    I tried creating a sort of "pit" in my base where I could push cows and chickens into and eventually build stables or something, but I found that the animals disappeared when not supervised :(

    Is there no way to manage livestock?

    I was thinking the same thing. You will need to make sure the water doesn't actually flow into the pit though, since I think the water would break the fall. It would make a single collection point kinda hard.

    I am thinking about doing a big pit full of cacti, with water channels to direct the drops to a single point I can just stand on. I've seen murder machines on youtube that work kinda like that.

    My last world had a large tower that used lava to kill mobs but it was a bitch to make and took a crazy amount of resources to fuck making that again.

    There is not, mobs continually spawn and de-spawn as you play. Never more than 15 neutral mobs on a map at 1 time.

    Unless you start throwing a lot of eggs.

    Oh! Make an egg cannon that fires into a murder machine, and all chickens that spawn with die and drop their feathers. To bad eggs are so rare. Kinda defeats the purpose if you have to inventory edit to make it work.

    I call bullshit. I've seen WAAAAY more than 15 neutral mobs on the map...in the same area. 15 of one type, maybe, but unlikely. At my old base on another server, every night there would be 10 cows, 12 sheep, and 24 chickens crowding around the little lakes and torches.

    Wool and leather, anyone?

    Anyone interested in a savegame file that has one of the craziest caves I've ever found in it?

    Seriously my computer shit itself while trying to load this cave system to the point where I think theres a massive memory leak going on. I had to turn it onto neutral just to make things playable but still this cave is huuuuuuuuuuuuge.

    Has a couple of underground waterfalls, a pretty big pool, and lava flows. Honestly I haven't gotten through the entire thing just yet but its looking like its the largest I've ever found.

    I wish there was a way to save the map of the SMP server I play on.

    I found a GOD DAMN huge cave myself. Stretches pretty much all the way to bedrock to surface in places, at least 400x400 square area, and I've found 3 dungeons in it so far.

    First time I explored it I thought I'd never find my way out. The whole "put torches on the left wall as you go deeper" thing doesn't really work when most of the cave branches end up reconnecting with another part of the cave somewhere down the tunnel.

    I finally developed a system of "Main tunnels" of the cave network, where I used redstone torches and signs to help myself get around. After a few days of mining it, though, I've got my sense of the layout pretty down.

    Basically when it comes to giving props for making something in Minecraft, you weigh just how awesome the thing is vs what they did to make it.

    The Enterprise? Sure, the framework was edited in and the rest of it is being made in Creative mode, but its fucking awesome enough that its fucking awesome regardless

    A neat little fort? Not so cool if made in Creative, but is a lot cooler made in SMP because you have to go and gather resources yourself.

    Something like that automatic mine cart retrieval system? Would be even more amazing if made without editing in the resources, but ultimately the impressive part with that was designing and implementing it, gathering resources isn't difficult its just a time sink.

    I get that a lot...

    "IT'S A FAKE!", They yell.

    I wholly admit that I did a deck import, but what's really cool is how I did it. I see kids these days, with their voxel converters, and they assume that all I did was find some .wrl file and run it though a converter. Take a look again. You can see in my video that the ship has been thinly sliced, with little details transparently showing through the decks. Now that ship was super rough and only really 8 hours of work. I was not out looking for the video to go ballistic. I posted the video in ONE PLACE, which was in G&Ts Minecraft thread. Next thing you know, Felicia Day sees it and it goes nuclear.

    The Enterprise we are building now not only has a much cleaner framework, but has teams of people building out rooms and finishing walls and making it their own. On my hard drive is a 44 deck Battlestar that will soon be put up on my forums. This will have an extra kick. No deck plans this time around. Now we will have to come up with halls, rooms, birthings, nooks, and crannies. (There are no deck plans for the Battlestar Galatica) Will it be as successful as the Enterprise? Probably not, but I wasn't looking for fame anyway the first time around.

    "I don't play Minecraft like normal people" I said.

    I bet that battlestar gonna look hella cool though.
