I'm told there is a new addition.
Yeah, I see a giant cobblestone block next to it.
The Kard desert is officially dead.
It is alive you mean. Look at all the grass that is growing there! Like the dryer parts of Africa/Australia during rain season!
J/K, I get your meaning.
I killed the desert so the savanna can grow!
So I hoped in the server earlier and holy crap! I feel it would be stupid to start out building now since everyone is so
far ahead lol
Aw, don't be that way.
Some of us just have a lot of time to waste. XD
Then maybe some time this week I'll hop in and start building.
Are there territories and such or build wherever there is room?
Pretty much build wherever there is room.
The exterior of the pyramid is done:
Because of its size, I can't see putting anything inside. It's just too dang big.
Undeniably the largest, single structure on the server.
make the inside some kind of maze.
I was going to make it like a modern apartments/casino/shopping mall inside with an oasis/food court in the center but seeing how much effort it took just to build the damn thing, I'm completely turned off by the prospect of doing that.
I really need to place a layer of sandstone on the ground so Enderman stop tearing it up but...it's no less than 53,084 blocks. Figure 1 second per block placement, that takes 14 3/4 hours to do. To add all the crap I want to build...we're talking a huge expenditure of time just because of the size of it.
If Kuufu didn't have such a massive ego problem...
I just took a look at the map, and I have only one thing to say. Holy... that's one ludicrously huge pyramid.
I might even buy the game to try out the real thing when I meet the requirements to play with you guys.
Wherever there is room, but if you want to build within city/castle walls please do realise that not all settlements are free-build areas. IIRC, the town section of Kard and Cape Coon were declared free-build zones but I don't know whether this is true for Canada. The snow area in the northern part of the map currently holds the main settlement of Winterfell (no free-building area, sorry); and the two villages of Hutton and Long Bridge's End. If you keep distance to the mentioned three settlements you may build freely in the North. Let me know if you want advice on the starting area for your settlement/house/whetever; I know the area pretty well.
Near Kard and Cape Coon (note that both are open to new builders):
South of the spawn area at but a stonestroke away from it:
Most of the times I check the dynamic map it's nearly empty with only FordGT90Concept running around (Ford GT90... lovely car btw )
Is that island yours? Nice place!
Yeah, I've been working on it since a day or two ago. There's probably still at least a day or two of work left to do.
If permissions are the same as they were before, you might be able to join to look around but not build.
Wow, nice. I'll wait for someone to confirm that! I'll have to still buy the game though. I'm a newbie at it, but I know the basics since I tried it for a few hours by myself.
I'll say... Minecraft can be quite spooky, many times I jumped off the chair being stalked by a creeper or enderman while mining in those dark caves lol
EDIT: Why is the map showing "incomplete"? Is the map shown as players explore?
Yeah, the word gets generated as you explore.
Currently, anyone can join, but only people on the whitelist can build.
any news on the Feed-The-Beast server?
Looking at that pyramid all I can think if is that you guys would have been great slave labor 5000 years ago.
Considering the effort required just to level the base, I'm pretty sure Ford would've made a great slave
Though I believe holding down the mouse button is a little less intense than hauling giant stones around... I wouldn't have survived the first day...
Haven't played in a while, mostly due to bandwidth limitations at my current location - MC is pretty bandwidth intensive and I only have a 2 GiB cap to work with (yay for third world countries). Once I've made other arrangements in a few weeks I'd love to expand my home above ground...
Ford you should put a beacon on the top. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Beacon
Minecraft is so addicting I made a custom mod for Redstone tools, the speed of gold and more durability than diamond.
+1 for the beacon.
