    Oh, but it is so much nicer! I know it is kind of odd to say related to relatively graphically simple game like minecraft, but the jaggies really annoyed the piss out of me, especially on the 1280x1024 monitor on rig2. All the straight lines really make the jaggies obvious to me in minecraft. The after image is with 32x AA, which kind of blurs things a little bit too much for my tastes, I play with 4x AA and 8x AF and it isn't nearly as blurred.

    The effect on the water is rather dramatic. From big straight lines to a staggered 3 line pattern.

    The water pattern rotates through a few patterns, that is why it looks so different between the two.

    Look at the horizontal lines between the red and white, it is more obvious there.

    Yeah, that's what I did and my eyes started freaking out. AA/AF is not for 1920x1200 res. XD


    The logo is done by the way (for everyone else to know).

    The subway is done except for the north/south and east/west train station/hub behind the Trade Center. It might be a while before that gets done though.

    That's what it uses--probably close to 150 of them. All the subways are using powered rails now.

    It's gold and iron that's the issue, not redstone. It takes 6 gold or iron for every one redstone.

    Why did you gents move the logo?
    It doesn't matter to me, I'm just curious.

    Two main reasons.

    The new location allows for a little bit more building without the TPU logo blocking it, and it makes it so the logo is still visable from the spawn point, but not BAM right in your face.

    Also, the new location lines up a lot better with the subway, so access to the TPU logo can easily be done via the subway only, with no obvious external enterance to break up the look of the logo.:toast:

    GL with taking it down and rebuilding.

    *Walks away*
    *Door slam*
    *Starts running*
    *Speeds away in a car with a burnout*

    Also, looks better surrounded by a pool of water instead of land.


    It was already moved several days ago. The foundation, subway station, and interior took more time than the logo itself did. If it burns down again, I reckon it will look pretty neat (like a circular skeleton). XD


    How often is the map updated? It doesn't look like it has been updated for a while.

    Until I get more RAM in the Minecraft server and can host everything there and automate the update process, we are back to updates once a week, I'll update it tomorrow. I hope to be putting another 4GB in the server in the next week or so.
