    It still shows up in the cartos though, and I don't know why, I think it is something screwy with cartograph.

    I thought it might have been some kind of corruption from when the map converted from the old style to the new style in the 1.3 update(or was it 1.4). So I tried to correct it by actually building something there. Thinking that if I updated all the corrupt blocks, that it would fix the corruption. However, carto was still picking up randomness in that space. Then I tried a few other mapping programs and they all show the map correctly, so I've narrowed it down to something wrong with cartograph. So I just said screw it and decided to use something else. That led to Google maps style map. It isn't updated realtime, I still have to update it manually. Initial rendering time for it is substantially higher than cartograph though, it takes about 5 hours to render a map initially, but it is supposed to be quicker after the first rendering as it will only render changes from now on.

    Also, right now it is hosted on a different internet connection from the server, and actually hosted in a completely different physical location, so it shouldn't cause any lag on the server when people are viewing it. I might try to move it to run on the same machine as the minecraft server, this would make automating updates a hell of a lot easier. However, I'm going to see what kind of bandwidth the map uses before I move it to the same internet connection as the minecraft server, to make sure it doesn't lag out the server.

    1.32, latest version of Java x64, Win7 Pro.

    There are some commmand line switches that you have to throw if you don't have a capable graphics card in the machine. Namely numSamples=0, which is the number of AA passes that tectonicus does using the graphics card. My map is generated with numSamples=2. Also, you might want to use imageFormat=gif as well, that gives the smallest file sizes when using the standard texture pack, you definitely don't want to use the default of png, it creates a huge rendering.

    The server is still running 1.4_01 I take it? I'm getting "Bad login" errors. You'd think it would give a version mismatch error instead.

    Yeah, still 1.4_01, odd that it doesn't give you the usual "Server outdated" error...

    I'd like to get the server updated, but bukkit still doesn't have a recommended build, so no one is updating plugins.

    I double checked and I think it is Bad login or "End of Stream" error. Yup, still odd. I just hope it isn't something on my computer causing the strange errors.

    When Bukkit (the mod the server runs) is updated and somewhat stable for 1.5 or later, the server will be updated.

    From bukkit.org

    When will Bukkit be updated for Minecraft 1.5?

    Update:
    We have completed the update to Minecraft 1.5_02 (and have had it done for a while now) and are working out a few issues before we promote a recommended build. A TEST ONLY build is available but we highly recommend that you wait until we promote a Recommended Build before putting it on your production server.

    Oh, your castle just set fire.. How did that happen? Of course Easy will just tell you the same thing. BTW, your avatar sucks. It wasn't cool in the 80's and it isn't now. Unfortunately it's also not cool because it's uncool either. You fail on every level.

    I'm also pretty easy.

    Doesn't much matter, your question was answered before you even posted it, which is why erocker knew the answer, you just had to read.

    Cut it out. PM him if you need a direct answer. If you continue trolling this or any other thread I'm going to knock you three months into the future with my banstick.

    Btw, looks like we'll see an update in a day or two.

    My server is updated to 1.5_02, and I also spent this morning adding warps, though only I can create them. If you want a warp created let me know, and I'll make it as long as it isn't too close to an already existing warp. Currently, there are two warps that I created, one at spawn and one at the distant tree farm.

    :D They apparently fixed the low priority thread in 1.5. I am playing the game with BOINC running and the game is very playable.

    There is still a rather nasty bug in SMP that kicks players for "flying" or "floating". The problem is that the little bit of time that you are falling while the map initially loads can trigger the issue and kick you. If you keep getting kicked from the server, I'm sorry, it isn't my fault and you aren't doing anything wrong.

    ok i am going to attempt to upgrade my server to 1.5_02 since bukkit is ready to go. if you try to connect and the server is down it is probably because i screwed something up. wish me luck!
