    The project I'm working on will have many and/or one massive drowning trap that will produce tons of goods. The sheep-, cow-, and pig- apocalypse is coming. ;)


    I was able to connect a few times using 1.3 Launcher but seems like more times than not. The problem is that https://login.minecraft.net is returning 500 errors.

    Yep, seems to be the problem. It also seems like the new launcher uses a different authentication method than the old, which is likely causing the issues.

    What is really annoying is that Notch rolled out the new launcher and didn't leave the old available just in case something didn't work. Seems like an idiotic way to do it, IMO.

    We're not in any hurry, so the sheep won't suffer too much. lol
    You gotta admit it will look pretty awesome when complete. We would be able to view it nicely from the top of the "TPU" structures. :rockout:

    The browser version still uses the old system.


    From the top of the TPU, you can only just barely see the fence on the other side of the spawn. :(

    Playing on the server last night started out fair, but then the lag got so bad it was unplayable. :/
    It could have been something on my side, like Windows pulling an update or something.
    Stupid connection can't do two things at once. :laugh:

    Again, bug with 1.3x patches. Notch is too lazy to fix. It was not this lagtastic before Kreij!

    Where is the new launcher (the one with the update news and stuff).
    I clicked the link in Notch's blog and it took me to the download page, but when I downloaded it, it is still the same one I had. :/

    The one on the download page is the new one. If you are using the trick on the first page to get the extra memory you have to download the linux .jar version and replace your old minecraft.jar file.

    Online game is completely unplayable for me now. Takes at least a a minute to even open a chest and am experiencing constant disconnects.
    Oh well, back to SP for a some building fun.

    When the next patch comes out, it might be playable, so just wait it out!

    I'm not going to give up. Evey time I can play for awhile I'll give MP a shot first.
    I'm determined to build the giant TPU logo :D

    I guess the servers went down before we could go on our quest for the creeper and skeleton caboose :(

    I had to laugh. This sounds really stupid, but I have a fear of heights and when I was making my building there were times when I was so immersed in what I was doing that I would get moments of anxiety when walking to the edge when the building became really tall. :laugh:

    If a stupid block game can get me that involved, I'm sold on it. :rockout:

    I have a really bad fear of heights as well, and I have the same problem when working on the edge of tall buildings in this game. :D
