I've been messing around on the snapshots here and there. I dunno, I feel lonely whenever I jump on there, though.

see above. what's next? i suppose you're going to tell me you didn't see that one coming?
thinking to steps ahead means nobody is going to want to listen to you; but you'll usually be right.
i'm guessing what happened is that you installed the snapshot, messed around for a bit, got lonely, came back and nobody was there.
is it surprising at all that the people who stayed saw everyone disappear; then left themselves?

Yeah, sorry, man. But, they enticed me with kitties and giant jungle trees.

Plus, I dunno, I just get kind of burned out on it every once in awhile, too.

The game is tremendously fun when you set yourself projects. When nobody is around, there is no motivation to do anything hard - you may as well do it in single player.

Exactly. It's just kind of no fun without friends around. Even if we're all off doing our own things, it's fun to go visiting and see what everyone's done.

If you ask me, everyone started disappearing well before the Snapshots started...
I got tired of playing with myself. :bluev:

Yeah; sorry about the lack of activity... I can only really say that on my part, and RL's gotten pretty frantic. Difficult to find time to hang out and such; anticipating the 1.2 drop isn't helping either for the current map. Also not helpful that I'm a huge coward who won't stray from safety.

But when 1.2 comes out, we'll make a new map, set the difficulty to hard, and see what happens. I've got plans of things I'd like to do, and they'll take time and courage.

I think once 1.2 comes out, there'll be a lot more to keep us occupied.

The problem is, 1.1 was something that I had been playing for months before we updated to it, so I already ran out of fuel for that mode.

In that regard, I think I'll stop messing around with the snapshots until it updates fully. This will give me time to screw around on other games, and I'll be able to come back into minecraft 1.2 with a fresh outlook and ready to play again.

Oh, also, the current snapshot accidentally the cave systems.

So, double height? Yaay!!!

Iron is now an absolute chore to find? Booooo.

I'm sure Jeb realized that and was like "ah, shit, shit!" and is working on it now, though.

I hate to say it, but, I've hopped on the server a few times, and it's fairly dead. And I have a hard time convincing myself to play on it.

I think, for me, when 1.0 came out and we created a whole new map, it just absolutely killed all my motivation to continue playing.

I mean, I loved coming on, and seeing what other people make, then making things and showing them off, etc.

I mean, church of Ghasthulu. That took me so long (the floors were OBSIDIAN). And, psh. Gone.

So then, y'know, 1.0 came out, and I log in, and... there's no mega-town like there was before. Before, I started off in this cool lil' town/castle thing, and there were signs to get to neat places. There was a sense of community, and I felt welcome to explore.

Now when I spawn -- I'm not sure where the hell HQ is. I went out to what's labeled as HQ, and it looks like it's just a sheep farm. I explored a little bit, but everything felt like I was just going into people's private shit. Except that boat, that was kinda cool.

So, y'know, one thought is, "Oh, I could take it on myself to start building a headquarters area" -- except, apparently, the map's gonna be wiped out for 1.2. :?

So, I dunno, guys. I really, really, REALLY liked the old map and all the crazy shit on it. I'm not sure who built that map's HQ stuff, but I'm guessing they haven't been around on this new server, and nobody's stepped up to the plate.

I'd do it, I'd love to build a NESkicastle or something. But if it's gonna be wiped out for 1.2... :drmario:

I think Shrike was saying we're updating Valusia for 1.1 once a bukkit stable build is up.

The problem right now is that they're actually rewriting a lot of the biomes code, it seems, and adding new biomes in still. The big one being Jungles right now.

So, we're gonna have to just wait for them to be done doing stuff to the terrain to update the map, I think, and make that our new permanent home.

Which, that does suck, because I miss all of us being around and building stuff together. Maybe we should set up a night where we all get on together and do something just for shits and grins?

I second that motion.

There is a bukkit build for 1.1; I'll get it up tomorrow.

Life's been really busy of late.

Coming out tomorrow, 1.2

When we get the server rolling again, we should definitely start a new map for this. Jungles, kitty cats, new height limit. It's gonna be glorious :awesome:

Fixed.

I think the prospect of kitty cats and jungles will make people want to stick around for awhile. 1.2 from what I've seen in the snapshots is going to be pretty wonderful.

Ouch, Neon. But fair. :P

This time we won't be going in and immediately be getting "Oh, hey... totally new biome and mechanics coming that won't show up in an old map", so that'll be encouraging for undertaking large projects. As before, I'm excited about what I learned in Hyperborea (Ocean cities are very defensible, for example), and that we now have better biomes that make a touch more sense and are a bit better distributed.

So, even though my life is quite busy right now, I'd be on with a fair amount of regularity.
Also, we knew that the old server was going to be taken down at some point, but Fallout's going to find a home under his personal protection so we can bring Troll'eh and Valusia back, and finally put all that stuff together. :)

Too lazy to make a new topic, but for some weird reason, I wasn't too lazy to change the title of the old thread.
1.2 is out! Discuss!

KITTENS! :buddy:
