    Can I get preauth for the Trade Center? It'll be in the white box:

    It'll be 3 stories tall starting on the lower portion and ending on the upper portion. It will bring the stream/waterfall inside.

    Oh, that was yours? It looked abandoned for a while. If you want to claim it, feel free, it was where I kept all the stuff while building the pyramid.

    Hey chicos, would the end of this road be a suitable place to level out a large area and start a maze? Perhaps to the right side of the road, so that the road can continue?

    I'd be sad to see my man made lake disappear. :(

    And I think Ford was going to continue that road eventually to go to my big tower.

    I was going to build a giant maze off of my floating bridge (floating also), but abandoned the idea in favor of extending the bridge farther into no man's land so I could lay a prospectors claim on about 1,000,000 square blocks to build Kreijville: City of Stone. :D

    Anyone can connect to my bridge for a modest fee (cough cough) lol

    Could I get a suggestion on the flat map of where to build a maze? I don't want to just go out 30 miles because then no one will ever use it, but every place around spawn seems to have claims made on it.

    Don't look at it from that standpoint. Once people try something once, they don't use it again anyway. It's just a testament to your creativity and dedication to seeing a project through to the finish.

    Oh ... and make the maze 3 dimensional (multiple floors of winding labrynth like madness).

    The pyramid could probably be converted into a maze. I think that might be fun to see.

    Aha! So that was you! :laugh:
    Nah it's ok. You can keep it. Just make it look real nice! :cool:

    Btw, Tekie, since my previous location was 'stolen' ;) ;) may I have this location? It's the little red circle on the mountain top, right behind the big under construction logo.

    That is a good idea, but all that land inside would have to be made flat. I guess I could start working on that.


    We'll be neighbors! I'm in the circular house on that hill.

    Yeah, that seems fine.

    If Phxphrovost doesn't have a problem with it, you can use the inside of the temple as well. Once I'm done it should be totally flat inside already(I planned to flaten it).

    Sweet! We should somehow connect our houses when I start getting the structure together :)

    @ Tekie, Thank you!:toast:

    When I started on the server I was a total n00b (as opposed to now just being a regular n00b) and didn't consider views from other structures and the like (I had just played offline and never considered that aspect). If my long bridge is causing anyone grief I will remove it (and repair the landscape) and do something different.
    I just took it for granted that out of the safe zone was up for grabs.

    Okay, I will keep going. Added about another 80-90 blocks past the rest area.
    If anyone wants to run out and donate some coal in one of the chests in the rest area it would be appreciated. I am having no luck finding coal for torches.

    A few questions ...

    Is there a way for a player to set his spawn point? If I die, the run takes so long with my connection that all my stuff is long gone. From spawn to rest area usually takes me from late morning to dusk. (Don't laugh or I'll build a bridge for Crepeers to get to your basement. :D )

    I still have no idea why "F3" does not work at all for me. Any thoughts?

    Gratuitous cheap shots ...
    Do we really want to take FordGT seriously?
    Should we allow the server to be run by someone named newtekie1? Shouldn't it be something like "Supreme Overlord"?
    Can you really trust someone whose name ends in Caboose?
    What exacly is Soylent Joe made from? :eek:
    Dare I comment about BondExtreme?

    :laugh:

    Good times, my friends. This server is more fun than things really should be :toast:
    Build on ...

    Kreij, yeah if tekie gets us a mod, we can set custom spawnpoints. I think that would be awesome, seeing as how I want to make a city 100000000000000000 blocks away. Regarding F3, not sure why that does not work for you. Might be that Notch removed the feature and people who have older files retained the function.
