    Getting warps up and running will be the next thing I work on with the server.

    I'm not sure I like the new map generator though, it seems to make things too hilly for my liking.

    Some places are very flat, some are hilly, some are mountainous. It makes you travel more to find the biome that suits you. I probably traveled 4km in a boat to find what finally fit my needs.


    And a word of warning, boats apparently break when traveling fast in swamp water (it's darker).


    Is Tectonicus still parsing for signs that start with ~?

    I waited for biomes to become complete before exploring my world much. Updated, filled out the map up to my 3000 radius border and there's no mushroom biomes, no strongholds. Anyone else have this problem? All I gained was snow biomes.

    I've started a massive excavation, if anyone else wants to get in on it let me know. It's to create an underground city essentially. Almost have the basic size of it nailed down and it's quite large. Could even divide up the underground into several sections after it's done for different people who helped out. Was going for an underground jungle theme though. PM me if you want to help/know more.

    KarL and I are working in the area circled in white:

    I think something is wrong with the sign parsing because all signs are showing (including private). Could you look into that?

    What's the link for the map again? I looked in the first post with all the other server info, but didn't see it listed there.

    A little bit of a update with this. The script is still set up to parse for signs that start with ~. However, for some reason the behavior of tectonicus has changed, so that when it finishes it just sits there waiting for the window to be closed, so nothing in the script runs after the tectonicus part, so the signs to don't get parsed. I'm trying to talk with the author of tectonicus to figure out why this is happening and how it can be fixed, but for now, I'm just disabling signs in the map. But you can still use signs with the ~ to mark signs you want to see on the map, and once the bug is worked out they will show up again.

    U.S.S. Prime framed out:

    It's going to house at least a million-block capacity worth of chests (if not on the first floor, in floors below). I'm gonna need a ton of glass to finish it. Good thing there is a desert right behind me in that picture. XD

    BTW, the village is partly destroyed by creepers so shall we demolish it for the "parts"? Or shall we repair it and somehow keep it in harmony with or own works?

    I vote harmony. They will have their uses in the future.

    Agreed, I say rebuild, and light it so creepers stay away.

    Edit:I've rolled back all the creeper damage to the village.

    Interesting. So that caused random destruction in my area (turning stone blocks into dirt ones and blocking some passage ways). I think next time i'll just fix the village myself lol

    Interesting, I wonder why that happened, it should have only affected explosion damage...

    It seems when you rollback explosion damage, really rolls it back, even if the damage has already been fixed. I undid the rollback and did another more precise rollback that shouldn't have affected anything except the town.

    And the farm is finally getting shape, with the farmhouse (except the ground and top floors, and furniture), walls and one stable finished. I have put two cows in my first stable, and bred one calf with them. Later, pigs, chickens and sheep will follow with each one or more stables (the sheep more than one so that I can keep them sorted based on colour).

    6 rows * 9 columns * 64 = 3456
    1,002,240 / 3456 = 290
    290 * 2 wood = 580 wood

    I need 580 wood (just over 9x64 stacks + 4) for all the chests. Assuming the wood getting is good, that'll take no less than 5 days straight of mining wood to get. Oh my...I have my work cut out for me.


    And I still have to decide on how to arrange 145 double chests in the space available...

    Edit: Oooo, maybe should put a rail system in there for deposits. Put your stuff in a minecart, flip a switch for what type it is, then step on a floor switch to send it. :D You know, just to make things overly complicated. XD

    We need to get more people on the server somehow, it seems kind of lonely a lot of the time :(

    Night shot of what we have done on the castle:
    [​IMG]
    Not even close to done.


    This is what 1,105,920 capacity in chests looks like:
    [​IMG]
    There are 6 halls like that in the U.S.S. Prime for a total of 6,663,168 once all the chests are placed.

    No, it refers to the shape (hull of a destroyer) and dimensions (107 long, 17 wide, and 11 tall) which are all prime numbers (was purely by coincidence).
