    Sorry if it is a little hard to read.

    Ok this looks interesting. How do I get involved? Is there anything I have to buy and how hard is it to create things?

    No trolling. Just seems like this is kinda cool.

    You buy it from www.minecraft.net for about $20 USD. It is no harder than your average FPS game. Actually, its probably a lot more simple. Mining is as easy as holding the left mouse button down and crafting is pretty much just drag and drop.

    Thank you Ford and Teki.
    Ford on your image, I literally can't read anything in red. :p

    All the red is from my image anyway, everything he added was in white.

    Yeah, look at tekie's image for the stuff in red and blue. Saving a JPEG as a JPEG loses even more quality than from its original condition.

    on my server, phase 1 of the big dig is complete. weve made it all the way out to the small island in the middle of the vast ocean to the east. perhaps we should build a mine cart we can ride in?

    So we can cause a whole bunch of lag? That in conjunction with the carto updates is a horrible idea. Only do the minecart ride if it is not continuously going, and not using 10 boosters.

    Glad others are enjoying Minecraft, especially Multiplayer. The gaming community that I manage the servers of (TrashedGamers.org) has had a Minecraft server in one form or another since Sept. 2010, but we stopped for a few months when Beta came out due to extreme lag. As of April 2nd, we tried it again with Beta 1.4, and since we were happy with the results, we rented a small VDS just for our Minecraft server (as Minecraft causes issues with Source dedicated servers for some reason, even though the server hardware isn't being taxed). We've always had a lot of fun building our creations and such together.

    Here's our first topographical map after 8 days if you're interested: http://maps.trashedgamers.org/TGMinecraft4102011.png

    Alright, the TPU Tree Farm on Easy Rhino's server is now officially open! With several hundred trees planted, you'll never run out of wood!

    Just make sure you replant saplings when you cut trees down and replenish the sapling chest so others can do the same! Thanks!

    *I suggest you make the requirements of your server from post count to time duration. Had to cleanup a couple post spammers due to it.

    You should see the subway on tekie's server. It is boosted in a continuous loop and, if memory serves, can handle up to 10 minecarts (there's probably one still running in it now).

    I have a cabin away from everyone else and I built a bridge. Problem is I thought the bridge was going to someone else area but it turned out to be an abandoned outpost or an unfinished castle. Once I finish with my cabin I am going over to the castle and finish building it.

    FYI I discovered bone meal grows trees instantly.

    Edit....I hate all of you bastards for making me play this. Anyone with OCD STAY AWAY.

    @MailMan : Visit the Minecraft Wiki for info on just about everything. (I thinks it's kept reasonably up to date)

    I play on Easys server. Less rules. I feel like Newtek server might have building code enforcement with all the restrictions.

    All of tekie's rules are common sense (or should be). :p

    maybe so, but it simply has more people. I don't want a lot of people in this game. it is already a built up world, whereas there is plenty of space and freedom in rhino's.

    it's not a put-down to either one. we are all playing a game we like... i think we can all leave it at that? :)
