    Every since daylight savings time, the minecraft server has been restarting at 4 PM instead of 4 AM. That's kind of annoying.

    I added the 4PM restart to help with the issues with lockette, now that those are resolved I'll remove it.:toast:

    Ok boys and girls, I just updated Lockette. Which now means we can lock doors as well! Enjoy.

    As usually, let me know if there are any bugs.

    Yes, place the sign next to the door and it will attach to the door.

    Ford and I have notices that there have been some mining, particularly of sand, where an area has been stripped of sand and a huge hole has been left.

    From now on, if you mine out a hole for a material, back fill it. Do not just cover it with one layer, fill the hole as much as possible with dirt or gravel or cobble.

    Yes that was probably from when me, dfcjoe, and pvt were scavenging the lands for sand for the pyramid. I'll heed your words from now on.

    Yeah, thats cool, we figured that was part of it.

    Worst case, take down the walls so water fills back in, and fix it so there are no currents.:toast:

    Here's the Texture pack i'm running and you wont find anywhere. If you need any textures done PM me and I can pretty much replace any you want. With permission from the original owner of course.

    (Glow stone looks strange at the moment as I haven't finished it yet)

    Beta 1.4 apparently will have wolves which you can tame and a stats/achievements system. Wolf vid:

    Its 503'ing again and it appears Minecraft.net is down aswell. Can log in but not connect so www.minecraft.net is probably down while login.minecraft.net is not.

    I don't think I like the direction that Minecraft is taking.
    MC is about building.
    I could see natural disasters (earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes, etc.), but to add in mobs to just make world building more difficult (for no appearant reason) does not do anything for me from a gameplay standpoint.

    If minecraft was all about building, then the free version, with no mobs and infinite resources, would be all we need. Minecraft is a game, a game about survival, so that is what the game is moving to improve.

    I understand the need for threats to make the game interesting and a challenge.
    However, as a building game, the threat (IMO) should be to what you are building, not trying to make it more of a psuedo RPG on a per player basis.
    As always, just my opinion.

    But it is not a building game, it is a survival game. The mode we play in, and the mode that is currently being developed, is survival mode. Creative mode will be a building only mode.

    While I don't mind stats, I fail to see the point of achievements in this game where it would be so easy to replicate any requirements with 3rd party programs.
