    The floating gardens are almost finished. All I have yet to do is figure out if there is any way to transplant reeds (so far, I don't think there is), and add some non-plant decorative items.

    If by transplant reeds you simply mean put them down somewhere, you can do it. They have to be next to water though.

    What happened to Pragland? :(

    I wish we could build security cameras in this game.

    Can we impose a new rule? How about not spawning millions of blocks of TNT, letting all players get their hands on the stuff, and then said players nuking the crap out of my front yard.

    inb4 stop whining about this already. No.

    I don't care if TNT is being spawned and used. We need it for mining, after all. However, players need to stop being reckless with it "just for the sake of experimenting". There is ENDLESS WORLD out there for you to nuke. Don't use the mainland as an area to create craters everywhere. That crap is inconsiderate and it totally sucks. The landscape looks awful now.

    Saturday night was long. Very long.

    So here's the deal. I finally built a home for myself. After helping with Fort Fazran and Castle Icrontic, I decided I needed something better than the UPSLynx Pwnymid to hang my hat. I scoped the land, and I found a nice little peninsula West of Castle Icrontic and South of Kingpin's land.

    I began to build.

    As I built, I noticed on a very small island just a handful of meters off the edge of my peninsula, there was a tree. Oh, it was a grand tree, brilliant in majesty, enormous in size. For lulz, I named it Home Tree, after you-know-what.

    Myrmidon discovered that we could grow trees on top of trees. We grew Home Tree to epic proportions. It pierced the clouds, and almost connected my home to our new skynetwork travel system. The entire tree was climbable. It was grand, it was beautiful, it was doomed.

    LynxHouseandtree.jpg

    That is my home on the left, and the massive tree, growing its sixth layer, on the right.

    I spent three real-world days building this tree. Last night at 11:46 CST, while attempting to place a torch to illuminate my workspace, I pulled out my flint and steel by accident, and lit Home Tree on fire from the top.

    The moment I saw flame emerge on a leaf, I knew that was the end. One flame block turned into three, and three turned into 12. I jumped off, mouth hanging open. Nearly everyone on the server could see the thing, it was a massive torch, quickly burning to the ground. Here's how the scene looked:

    I ragequit. I drove away. I couldn't take it, I was so flustered. I bought a 40 at 7 Eleven because it made me LOL, and I felt a little better. About 20 minutes later, I came back and rejoined to find that the players on the server helped kill all the lingering flames and re-plant some of the saplings. I was humbled by the help and concern. It's truly a great meaning of community.

    Reconstruction is underway. It's going to take awhile, but man. What a fail.

    And it was 100% my fault.

    Let this be a lesson to all of ye, there is nothing permanent. The gods of minecraft giveth and they taketh away. Mere mortals cannot sway their omniscient minds.

    Fantastic! Loving the game so far. Oh, Lynx, what have you gotten me into?

    Also, thanks Thrax for the whitelist, and everything else you've done to get Minecraft going for us.

    I made some large chest at my base community prop., they are marked what is in them and community underneath. There is currently one marked private, you get the idea with my signs. Currently there is only dirt and gravel, more will be coming shortly so if you aren't sure what I have ask and I will look for you. Please for the love of Christ(Thrax) don't stick junk in my trunks.

    The floating garden / greenhouse is almost complete. I need some help to overcome the lack of buckets. I need a water feature up there, but without a working bucket, I need it to be spawned for me, so next time Thrax and I are on the server at the same time, the garden will get its finishing touches.

    Also, I just noted that anyone with with the skin that makes the glass look like cross hatched wood, will likely not find the garden to be as attractive.

    Also note that, other than the water I need Thrax to spawn for me, all of my materials and display items were gathered and/or manufactured without material spawn cheats. :D

    Good to know CB. I'm glad there is somewhere on the server that was built only from self mined materials. Too bad there isn't anything else like that around. People these days are so lazy. Glad we have a shining star to follow.
