P.s very impressive voland
I really don't know yet, it's a plain vanilla server, so you can do whatever you like I guess, so far Walrus has been building the fort, I've been mostly dicking around between creative mode and adventure mode collecting sheep for wool ... yeah, doesn't sound that impressive on second thought.
To win the game you need to:
Go the the nether, get at least 6 Blaze Rods, but you will probably need more, go back to the over world, get at least 12 ender-eyes, find a strong hold, find the End Portal Room, repair the End Portal, travel to the End, destroy Ender Crystals that heal the Ender Dragon, kill the Ender Dragon and collect the Egg
In multiplayer you can do pretty much anything. War, trading, quests, etc
We should try to arrange a time we can all get online and play together
Also I'm not particularly precious about my castle so please feel free to expand/improve on it at will, there is still a shitload of work that can be done
if someone fancies a little challenge, getting a nether portal up inside the castle somewhere would be rockin'
gonna head on now if anyone is around
i know nobody else is hugely active on this but just as a quick update - discovered an enormous cave network/ravine beneath the castle. If anyone goes on, ive left a path of burning netherrack from inside the castle into the biggest caverns.
Yo can someone PM me the IP? My mates server is down so I've not crafted in a while
'Can't resolve host name'
Whatever that means.
strange it gives you such error, but the ip is: 18.104.22.168
Someone trolling around on there it seems turned the flag into a swastika
also there is now a nether portal in the castle, due to proximity it links to the same one in the nether as the other nearby portal.
we can start whitelisting I guess?
Died for the first time on the mp server. Bit annoyed since was carrying my diamond pick and it will be a nightmare to try to get back to where I was.
I'm having a wee nose now
Suarez strikes again
just started construction of a glass-walled/roofed underwater room, going from the castle under the frozen lake. i think its very cool personally.
also made a little wooden construction which is just about visible from the castle.
also noticed the big towers near the spawnpoint, good work whoever did that.
Yeah, I'm playing with the towers when I have time :-) been quite busy lately thou
Just tell me did you get the materials or use your admin magic?
People who play Minecraft are industrial strength nerds according to my 13 year old. He suspects that you are yu-Gi-oh card collectors who should get out more and try to meet real girls.
tell him that i MET my missus playing world of warcraft. it will blow his mind, the poor sod.
I've been playing this for the first time over the last few days on Survival. Nothing seems to happen, I just build my house, go and collect some materials, kill some zombies on my way home and go to sleep.
Not that this isn't fun in its own right at this early stage, but isn't there supposed to be more? Do I have to leave the home I've been building and go off somewhere else? There's no village or anything around and if I go too far I'll be lost forever and have to build a new house in the middle of a new nowhere. And then what?
You do whatever you want Judge, that's the point! You want to build a statue of yourself on top of a mountain? Do it! You want to build a massive castle, complete with moat, lava traps and scary basement? Do it!
The first few stages of Minecraft are always the same - build a little house, collect supplies, increase size of house, build a mine, make better equipment. After that it gets a bit more flexible. At your stage I always increase the size of my house, and get a little wheat farm going for easy food. After that, you can extend it - maybe make an animal farm and breed pigs? Make a massive underground mine, whore the area for its minerals and build a massive railroad? Find a flat area and build a big automatic wheat/reed farm? You have so many choices with this game, it's the main appeal of it.
I'm going to need to read some of the Wiki pages. It's just that I saw a video of someone else's game and they started off right next to a village, which made the thing appear a lot more fun and adaptable. Is there always going to be a village somewhere on every map?
The wiki there is excellent. What sort of information are you after? I would also check over the forums, as people often give loads of good ideas for things to build and do. If you get bored of your world you can also download custom maps that people have made, and these can be pretty much anything, there are thousands of different ones.
As for villages, one will eventually load. There are some programs you can download that will map out all of the world that you have currently generated that will show you if you've loaded a village into your world yet. Or you can just keep exploring until you find one, although they are quite rare.
There are lots of randomly generated things like that. Villages, Strongholds, Mine Shafts, Ravines etc. You just have to go looking for them.
Personally I find my favourite part of the game is making big old bases in crazy designs and the likes. If you want to try playing online ill send you the redcafe server link and you can check that out. There arent many of us active on there just yet but its quite cool seeing some of the stuff people come up with.
As Urbanned said, the first few stages are always the same as you just build yourself up into a good position. After that its up to you - make traps for enemies complete with loot retrieval systems, go digging for rare stuff, find one of those villages, open a portal to the nether.... its a sandbox game, the game wont really throw that much at you, its more just a case of doing whatever the feck you want.
I started playing this on Christmas Eve and I have a really hard time pulling myself away now. Co-op survival is amazing.
1.1 is out, I'll be updating the server today too.
Anyone want a fresh start there, or we stick to what we already have?
There are villages and stuff now? Hmm, maybe it's time to start playing. I was always more of an explorer than a builder (though I did like to build massive towers in glass). Haven't played in a while now.
oh, much more changes then just the villages and dungeons, but yeah, big changes
worth giving it a second try for sure!
Alright then, server has been upgraded to 1.1
Old stuff done by Walrus mostly and a little by me has been archived and we start with a brand new seed.
Server host: redcafe.tanganaika.net
Everyone is welcome as long as he behaves really
didnt realise there was a patch out. will have to have a check tomorrow night or so
I'm helping build a 38x38 mob grinder from bedrock to the top of the world.
Ran out of cobblestone several times.
Haven't tried 1.1 yet since my server admin's waiting for bukkit to update their stuff.
make one under my castle!
No. It was hard enough doing it with the help of 5+ people.
Been playing on the server a couple hours now. NPC village right near spawn point aswell.
Have a little lodge with a jetty going
Edit : Well turns out spawn point is right on my porch so its mostly safe (I knew i built my house close to the spawn point just not right on it)
very interesting development.
between the spawnzone and the npc village as we know, there is a little lake. having swum about it in, i swum over a slightly deeper bit right next to the npc village. before i know it i was falling down a hole, on the crest of an underground waterfall.....eventually landing me at the very bottom of the world, on a bed of obsidian surrounded by lava.
Having made safe the area and excavated, i put a workbench and forge down there and sealed off a "landing" zone for the waterfall, and after a long swim was able to make my way back up to the surface (after realising i didnt have any food).
I have marked the area on the surface now and will return with supplies shortly and maybe see if i can make a better way of getting back up.
the whole area is full of ravines, caverns and holes...I can constantly hear zombies and spiders inside my house as there is a big cave systems right underneath I've yet to fully explore.
Ha, we've got a good seed this time, nice!
