    stats bring out the competitive nature in people. the people we play with are not that way as we all know this is just minecraft, not real life. anyway, stats are fun to look at and fun for me to track and write code for. i dont think seeing some basic stats will ruin minecraft :)

    so..... on another note......

    I have completed 18 levels of the clock tower and have gotten a good handle on the process for building the base of the tower.

    I know i will need glowstone so I wonder if anyone has a portal up yet?
    If so, when I get on tonight i will need to TP to it or know where it is located.

    I believe we have what you need or close to at least.. Would not take long either way if we did not.

    alright, if you want we have a server project under way. we are building a central rail station between the tower and the clock. this will be a main hub and will start with lines going north/south and east west. if you help with the project i will provide the tools.

    Put a load of wool in your chest a few colours amounts are short although there is a bunch of white wool you can change the colour off.

    Im building the Base now. does anyone have a portal? I need to gain access to the glowstone for harvesting.

    I have a boatload of clay but not enough coal for the job.
    Anyone know where I can find some?

    no sheet really? I meant anyone seen a large cache of it somewhere?

    Coal is everywhere, just dig down. Please stop asking us to do these menial tasks for you, we have our own projects to work on. Thanks.

    *I do have enough obsidian to make a portal. It would be nice to have just one portal to the nether. Let me know where I should put it.. I'm thinking close to the central tower.

    I was thinking about getting this game but is it worth it and what all do you do? I have played the java version and thought it was neat.

    It's the same as the browser/java version. The standalone version uses java as well. We basically have this big world to do as we please. It's a survival server... so you start with nothing. So, get food, shelter and all that. Once you're settled in mine stuff and build stuff. :) I'd love to see more people on at once.

    Well I will see what I have left over after my case purchase and def try to get it. I already made an account. Can't some of you who own the game have gift codes? I read on another site that you can get discounted prices for inviting a friend?

    that is a good place for it!

    done! welcome! please find a place to build a decent space from others so that you are not crowding them and you have plenty of space to expand :toast:

    gift codes? i will look into it!

    You can buy a gift code to give to someone but they cost just as much as someone buying it retail. Brandon, if you PP me 26 bucks I can send you the gift code, though it would be easier if you just bought it for the same price. :laugh:

    I couldn't find any discounts unfortunately.

    i just looked as well. $20 is nothing for a game you will probably play for weeks on end.

    I can try.

    Erocker, I think you are misunderstanding my comment. All I ask is that someone alert me to a good location. I spent over an hour this morning looking for coal and found ~20-30 pieces towards the end of the time. Im just looking to improve my efficiency.
    As it is, I am currently working on building the base of the tower up to level 18 of 66.

    Just a landmark is all i ask. like ex. " there is a good site near the mountain next to Rhino's mansion. Etc.

    I appreciate everything everyone has contributed to the project.

    I am working on the clock circuit design. The math is blowing my mind.
    If anyone is good with math I would like some help please with the equation I am making to simplify things.

    What i know is this:

    r = Repeaters
    3r = 1 Second

    50 seconds = 1hr

    500 tick Delay (not quite sure what for)

    1 tick = .1 seconds

    ####In-Game Clock not Redstone time ######
    20 cycles in 1 second
    1 tick = 1/20th of a second
    ################################

    ###Redstone####

    Redstone tick = 2 In-Game Ticks ~ 0.1 ( 2/20) second delay

    Signal Travel time form Point A -> Point B is increased .1(1/10) seconds.

    A tick refers to increase NEVER decrease.

    Im trying to figure out how many repeaters i need for a 12 hr cycle as well as what tick to set them to.

    a single repeater can have as many as 4 ticks but not more.

    Any Ideas?

    I have spent 3 hours today trying to figure out an equation.

    so far the most I have gotten is:

    150r = 1hr
    1800r = 12hrs

    which means i need 150 repeaters to equal 1 hr. but what tick setting and such?

    Honestly, it's not going to work on a MP server. Repeaters are just too buggy. Perhaps there is a mod out there that can take the server time and use that. Redstone Chips mod should work.

    see, the clock tower schematics i have are from a MP server so I figured it should work. problem is the guy said he would "show" how to make it but never actually did show how the circuit is set up. He stated that I could "reverse engineer the clock" from the schematics. BS!!! I got the tower design from the schematics thats it.
