    Starting to carve out a 1000x50x2 mine. This ought to be beautiful.

    Edit: worked out the minimum yield of this mine.

    visible blocks 204200
    diamond blocks (0.08%) 163.36
    gold blocks (0.10%) 204.2
    lapis lazuli blocks (0.02%?) 40.84
    redstone blocks (0.70%) 1429.4
    iron blocks (0.50%) 1021
    coal blocks (1.00%) 2042

    I reached a point where a "wall" (1*x*y) of blocks are glitched and can only be affected from above. Wierd.

    The only time I saw something like that was when mining around the spawn. You could attack the one side that is outside the spawn area but that's it. The rest reappear after being destroyed.

    How big do you plan on making it? If it isn't going to be that tall, yeah you can build there.

    Houston, we have a problem. I think I identified why no passive mobs spawn anymore (making the passive deck of the UFO useless). Tame wolves count against the maximum passive mobs allowed. We have tons of tame wolves and therefore, we get no passive mobs. I'm going to find a way to kill my wolves (most likely run around a lava lake) in order to hopefully get passive mobs spawning. I would be grateful to anyone who does the same.

    Edit: I killed all my wolves and immediately after, I could see a group of pigs again by the cabin. Pigs have also spawned in the UFO/Collector.

    I never used mine so I had no problem killing them off. Leather is more useful to me than wolves. XD

    We really need more of the wolves killed off though. The number of passive mobs spawning is still relatively low.

    I just hopped on real quick and killed off all of mine, I just killed them with my sword, and for some reason I felt really bad about it.:(

    I just ran around an underground lava lake so they all burned up quick. It was sad, but not as sad as slaying them. It was quick too.

    After I slayed mine, I only got 6 leather from the passive deck of the UFO. Hopefully the volume of passives went up...way up. And yeah, I hope they remove tame wolves from the passive mob limit. Then again, something has to stop everyone from accumulating 100 wolves. XD

    To say that you are sad because of the loss of an intangible, digital representation of something in a game means that you are making an emotional investment in a non-existant, virtual environment.

    You guys are scaring me. You may need to get out more. Seriously.

    I installed an extra 2GB of RAM in the server. I've increase the usable memory available to the Minecraft server to 2GB, though we've never come close to even using the 1GB it had before. I've also combined the tectonicus and minecraft servers onto the same machine, finally. This means totally automated tectonicus updates are now possible and will happen every monday, wednesday, and friday.:rockout:

    Please note the new tectonicus address especially the port, as the standard port 80 will not work.

    No, it just makes a really realistic sound when they are hit, and having 4 dogs myself that the sound of a dog crying makes me sad.
