    You should be able to just update the system path to point to 64-bit instead of 32-bit (assuming x64 is already installed), otherwise with the jar you would have to call the x64 java.exe directly. Technically you can have as many instances of java as you want, but the version that gets used automatically is typically the one in the system path.

    Code:
    SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\bin
    vs
    Code:
    SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05\bin

    Using %PATH% for anything is a terrible idea and very MS-DOS/Windows 95'ish. Sun only does that to preserve backwards compatibility (which is why it points to the 32-bit instance). The application I linked to uses the system registry to find both versions of Java.


    I got the N/S tunnel mined out. It needs to be cladded in cobblestone yet though.

    Minecraft auto detects the best Java to use now. So if you have the 64-bit version of java installed, it will use that. However, it still defaults to using 1GB of RAM, even under 64-bit, so Ford's awesome program fixes that.

    This helps: http://tpuminecraft.servebeer.com:85/

    Check "Unnamed Villages" marker set and you can warp to any of them to get farther out into the wilderness if you want. To get to H, for example, say "/warp h"

    That URL takes you to a map that shows where most stuff is.

    No, there aren't many/any restrictions on building.

    Edit: Nevermind, it's working again.

    The tunnel is completely clad in cobblestone. All it needs now is lighting and rails.

    Dynmap is down.

    When it is up again, folks should use it to check how well the town section of Winterfell is developing there is a new bridge that goes from the railway station and the warp point [Winterfell] to the bridge that is connecting the two sides of the bay area. This way people paying a visit can bypass the castle if they wish and go to the town more directly. On the east-west bridge will be houses (like many medieval and renaissance bridges had, afaik), of which one is already built.

    Seriously thinking about building a spire holding up a massive glass torus (doughnut shape).
    192 tall, 73 in diameter, too many radii to count.

    It's gonna be so difficult to build so...I'm still procrastinating on starting it. :(

    I think it will be almost all cobble and glass. I suppose the armatures holding up the torus could be iron but we're talking insane amounts of it. :(


    The first hurdle is deciding where to put it. It needs to be at sea level.

    I guess I could buy and gift it to you if you're going to play on tekie's server. Bare in mind that not many people are playing anymore because the game hasn't been updated in forever (2 months ago). :(

    The easiest place is above water but, you know the three rules of real estate: location! location! location!

    I would want to build it somewhere of value. Some place people would be inclined to build around it but at the same time, a place that doesn't get in the way of other people's projects.
