    There is an Inn right next to it filled with beds.

    The starting zone is protected so it can't be modified by anyone but me, it was created way before beds were part of the game, and anything placed in the starting zone couldn't be used by anyone, doors couldn't even be openned. I'm not sure if beds would even work there.

    OMG! It looks like Robbie came alive and invaded your server. :x As far as I know, lightning can only turn pigs into pigmen.

    FYI, if anyone has gold or iron to spare, I could really use it for the upgraded subway system. It's going to take about 128 gold to make all the boosters.

    It was hillarious. That was actually the first storm I've seen. I've seen rain on the server but not with the lightning and thunder. One guy was standing in my house taking shelter and I saw a lightning bolt come throught the ceiling and vaporize him. Left a smoldering hole in my wood floor. It seems whenever a zombie gets hit by lightning they become huge.

    we turned night time back on but i will find that plugin that at least makes daytime longer. people who play on my server should armor up and have a strong weapon on them for when storms come through. seriously, hundreds of monsters were in our main town blowing up everywhere.

    The ~1.6km rail is up one-way. Ride it to get the "On the Rail" achievement. You'll have to bring a cart with you, set it in the corner, get in, and push the button to launch.

    Next, we're gonna have to make a platform to ride pigs off of and plummet to their death. XD


    Do you have a pixel-accurate version of this picture (should be exactly 64x64 pixels)? It would work much better because I can easily mark off which tiles are complete (that's how I managed to get the High-Dive done right the first time). I can also make internal schematics of the interior.

    I'm not going to be on for a while and when I get back on again I want to start fresh. So can someone kindly recycle my base? The should be a couple of hundred redstone dust and cobblestone among other nick-nacks.

    I have no idea what you mean by pixel-accurate version.
    That picture should be block-accurate at exactly 64x64. I used an Icon editor to make it.

    Yeah, should be pretty easy to reproduce using your image, it is 64x64, so each square is one block of wool.

    Like this:
    [​IMG]

    I don't trust that image though because it was made by cleaning up and resizing yours. Paint could have made a silly mistake. Maybe you could save a 64x64 icon in that program? I should be able to extract a bitmap from it.


    Here's the proposed new location for the TPU Logo (in orange):

    Any objections?

    1 pixel and that's all it takes. XD

    Oh, also, make sure to save it as a PNG or BMP. It needs to be lossless. ;)

    We can use the original, it has the grid layed out so that one square in the grid is one block of wool, and the grid is 64x64(I made sure).
