    teleporting works much better now. you will have to change your ladders. you cant leave a space between them now. also, the grass is messed up in all texture packs except the default one. and im seeing things in the distance before i see things right in front of me.

    Got the pilot (1x2) tunnel dug for a subway connecting the old subway lines to the forest. It is approximately 1600m long and riding it will get the "On A Rail" achievement for you once complete.

    Got the Gravel Tower/Great Tree Forest train station/lookout/dock more or less done:

    That's a huge lake/ocean (perhaps the biggest in the server) behind me so the dock is very useful.

    Thanks to folks helping me with the great wall. However, please just follow the template i set out. There is a set way to actually run the wall and it is easier if people help by raising the walls and what not.

    It's not really an MMO nor an RPG. It's like a first-person Lego game where blocks are virtually limitless and some (with legs) like to ruin your day by sneaking up on you and exploding. XD

    The "final" release will theoretically come out 11/11/11 (November 11, 2011). The developer has said that the date merely means "beta" will be removed from the title but he is likely to continue updating the game. If you buy it while in beta, it will be cheaper (about $20 USD now) than buying it once it is officially released ($25-30 USD then). All updates are free (there's been about one prety significant update per month) and small to download (the game is only a few megabytes).

    More or less somes it up. It's completely free form. No story or anything of the sort. Just fun (and creepers).

    You get banned.

    In all seriousness, you respawn.

    Make giant swastikas, or break the other rules. Single player, no worries though.

    You respawn at the bed you last slept in. If no bed, you spawn at the world spawn point (if you look at the map, its the large brick square).


    Google it.

    It is very big. See the long road/bridge going to the east? That's 1.6km and takes about 9 minutes to run across on foot. To mine a 1x2 tunnel (big enough to run in) that distance takes about 2 hours.


    The rules for newtekie1's server are on the first post.

    There's about 40 people on the safe list so you are likely to run into a few. XD

    Once you got a Minecraft account, you have to PM newtekie1 with your Minecraft username so he can add you to the safe list and give you the address to the server.

    Good stuff. I assume that by the rules, I can pick a lot of land outside the said boundary to build?

    Edit: also, why are there no beds in the starting zone lol
