+1 want a new screen. Gonna make interactive map.
I'm going to start a schedule with the Cartograph maps, I'll post one every monday. So I'll put one up this comming monday.
Awesome, I logged off because a chunk wouldn't load, and now I'm 503'd again...
Can we also get a flat map as well?
I don't see why not.
Sorry I haven't been on that much :/
Been messing with my own server but realized it would never work seeing as my other computer I would run the server on, doesn't support enough memory.. Bah!
Looks like TPU MC server is for me. xD
Well, whatcha waiting for? XD
Newt, since weekends are probably the busiest, how about a map update on Friday (before we plow into weekend building) and one on Monday to see what went up (or down in the case of the spawn building) over the weekend?
If it's not to much trouble, that is.
How about we all pitch in so Newt can get a 4 x 6 Core processor system with 192 GB of RAM, few dozen Terbytes of storage and an OC-256 (13Gbs) pipe to the server?
I was going to suggest OC-768 (40Gbs), but that's just overkill.
(not that it would help my stinkin' connection. lol)
That is why I'm going to do one every Monday, so we can compare what has gone up in one weeks time.
I would love it if you all wanted to pitch in for a new beast rig for me, it won't be used for minecraft since the Celeron in the server handles the load just fine, but I could always use an updated main rig.
Hehe. FORD! You and I need to build something. A team effort.
My revised wheat farm that takes advantage of the fact that water can travel four blocks, thus making me only have to have two main lines of water:
Nice Ford ! I didn't get a chance to see it "live" yesterday as I started having superlag™ about the time you were finishing it up.
I'm still not sure what's going on with the connection. Somedays it's great with multiple people on the server and somedays it sucks when I am the only one. :/
Now ... where's that carto map so I can see where all the sheep are at.
Time to start collecting wool for the logo again.
The Cartograph maps are coming soon.
In the mean time I've added a function called Quickbelt. This automatically reloads your hotbar when an item runs out with the item at the top of the row above that slot in your inventory. It is off by default, so to enable it use the command /qb on, to disable it use /qb off. This should make building building a little easier.
Should be helpful for my axes and shovels breaking. Thanks Tekie!
QB does sound useful.
Just have to make sure you have the same thing one slot up or you might switch from stone to sand (or whatever).
Here are the new cartograph maps. Some cool information if anyone cares. The world is now 121MB, the original PNG generated for the angled map was 14.5MB, the original PNG for the overhead map was 4.3MB. The map surface is 7,267,328 square meters.
I reworded my description of Quickbelt, it doesn't take the item directly above the open slot in your inventory. It actually pulls the item at the top of the row directly above the empty slot.
Will it trickle down until the whole column no longer has items in it,
or does it stop after the top most row's item has been consumed and is empty?
Just curious. I'm at work and can't test it out. :/
It trickles down, if an inventory slot is empty, it moves the item below it up into that slot. The top most item gets moved into the hotbar. The rather annoying side effect of this is that everything in the inventory will be pushed up to the top.
Thanks for the maps Tekie! The quickbar thing sounds neat. I might give it a try after I get some homework done.
FYI, /TP is broke: "You do not have permission to teleport players."
I also got a lot of work done on the fight pit. It still needs a proper entry way though.
Yeah I tried to TP Soylent from certain death in the animal traps. He got out, but I was unable to TP him in time, or at all!
In other news: building int he welcome area without permission:
TP should now be working again.
Edit: On one hand, I didn't approve the diving platform, but on the other I like it!
me screwing around on the "diving board"
That's the likely location of the trade center so it'll have to go. KarL is getting close to being ready to break ground on that project.
