    I don't know anything about these shacks, but lets all consider the fine line between trolling and griefing. By my definition, for example, if it can not be undone easily within a couple minutes, I consider it griefing.

    Also, lets consider e-security for a second. Don't give your password out to anyone ever. Also, change your password if someone else has it.

    Oh yeah, don't worry about the shack type stuff. Just Icrontic having fun.

    We like to mess with each other (as evidenced by the signs in my house, or the snow from the snow golem that was rolling around, or people covering AFK players with dirt). We all know to keep it silly and easy to fix, so no harm no foul.

    HELP!!!!!!

    I wanted to ride the pig in spawn and now I can't get out!!!

    EDIT: nevermind I managed to take advantage the split second where my wool was on the ground to hop out.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    @ilriyas I killed off your lava at castle canuck. It caught your two watch towers ablaze, and was starting fire in your doorway. I saw it burning from my house, rushed over and put it out. I realized the lava flows continued to start fires at the base, so I had to kill them.

    Fire can propogate up to two blocks away from source. You had wood from the towers one block away. They don't burn immediately, but they have a small chance of igniting over time. If you redo the lava, make sure everything is over two blocks away from it (this is why I can't light up my fireplace in my house.)

    Let it be known that on the 2x2 section of fence this happened in there sat a sign, and I quote:

    @UPSLynx, thanks for that I honestly didn't consider the possibility of that occurring.

    Looks like I've found one of the dungeons o_O

    Edit: Removed for Community Reserve

    I managed to tunnel into it from the side accidentally and found this entrance while poking about.

    Edit: by dungeon, I mean stronghold

  • Howdy folks. Got word of the server restart and decided to come back and perhaps start playing here again.

    I do have a question though. On the previous server, I had most my fun tunneling around at very deep levels and occasionally connecting to things (my tunnels were 3x3 at level 7 if memory serves. Having read the rules for the new server with land claims and all, it sounds like this is perhaps forbidden. Is this the case?

    Thanks.

    MOO. SHROOMS. Mooshroom biome found at -1750, -1450. I'll bring a few to town.

    Also, the worst NPC village ever spawned can be found out by the nether portal to the Nether Fortress, way out at -3925, -1150. It has a small house, 3 little farms, and a well. that's it. I lol'd. The Nether portal is out on the ice in the ocean east of this hut, if you're looking for it.

    Not forbidden, just restricted. Find an unclaimed section of outland, claim it, make sure your tunnels stay (more or less) within that area. (Digi will correct me if I'm mistaken here)

    Yup. Just to further explain "claim it". Go scout out the area you wan to build on. Throw me the coord in the plot request thread. I'll verify all is well and give you the thumbs up.

    -Digi
  • Ah, that's pretty much how I read it. My concern is that many of my tunnels in the old server when under other people's things (way under since most people built on the surface and I dug just above bedrock) and hooked up to some of those things as well. Since that's against the rules, I suppose I'll have to find other ways to have fun.

    Thanks.

    So wait, dargon's basically talking about making underground passageways. Developing transport in a manner that allows for safe travel while not mangling above-world features is a problem? It's not like he's building stuff, just making long-range tunnels. Road-building underground.

    If they were planned out roads, that would not be a problem. Per current rules we could assign a big plot of land for Dargon to dig around on but it sounds like he would run out of things to connect shortly after starting :-P

  • Found a skeleton spawner at -207, -1548. I constructed an XP farm on it that is fully up and running. Use either a bow to kill them, or bring splash potions of healing to wipe out all the skeletons at once (recommended way)

    Nether Portal to Nether Portal subway connection built between Icrontic Town and so far unnamed barbarian village. Hop into Icrontic Town's nether portal, take a left out to the nether wart farm, and to your right outside the building you will see the subway entrance. Hey big boy, stop by and see us sometime!

    Some features of our village you may enjoy:

    --Mycelium Farm - Bring a silktouch shovel and grab some mycelium! Please bring your own dirt to replace it, though I will try to keep some stocked nearby. Obviously do not break the floating, torched mycelium blocks above the flat farm, as this is what re-fuels the dirt blocks on farm below back into more mycelium.

    --2x EXP farms! - In town there is a minecart trail down to two exp grinders, one skeleton and one zombie. (entrance will be in the entrance hub building once said building is built :) ) Simply take the cart down, inside the building there, the room with the leaf floor and iron cage is the skele spawner (see CaptainMoustache's post above for how to kill them). Down the stairs behind the door labeled "Z" is the zombie spawner - stand by the fence but not too close or they will bite your face. Splash healing potions work wonders on them too, but you can punch them over the fence.

    --Mushroom house brewing hut with all the fixin's

    --ugly ass enchanting building with full bookshelf stock for max level enchants

    --Ugly Villager point-and-laugh museum!

    --Instant Flower-Creation Chamber (ask me in game to show you how it works, it's quite simple once you know what to do)

    And standard crap no one cares about like animal/tree farms and homes.

    Jeb tweeted that this week's Snapshot will likely come tomorrow, instead of the usual Thursday release time. In addition, he released the following information for key changes likely to be seen in the coming update:

    Maximum build height has been increased to 256 (was 128)
    Empty sections of the world are not loaded into memory
    Block ids have been increased to 4096 (was 256) by adding a 4 bit data layer (similar to how meta data is stored)
    Block ordering have been changed from x/z/y to y/z/x in order to improve compression
    Packets for sending chunks have been updated (a full 128-high chunk is smaller than the old format, and a chunk with lots of empty space is much smaller)
    Biomes are saved per x/z column, which means they can be altered by tools
    Double the Build height, things are about to get crazy. Also maps are going to take up less space now too.
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    I have been out of this game way too long, holy cow.

    Where does one dig for resources? Iron, Diamond, etc. I can't dig under my house, do I just wander out into the wilderness and wing it?
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    Ark: In case you are interested, you have the ability to ship some of your items to the new world. These items will not be available the day of the reset. They will be available after spawn is settled. I will pick a place and "move" the chests over. If you want to have some of your items from the current world moved over you simply need to create a chest at current world ICTown station with your items and place a sign next to it indicating it is your "Ark" items. As time gets closer I will give you guys a heads up that I will be going on to take inventory of the chests for moving.
    Is it way too late for this to happen? If it is, no worries, was just curious.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    Probably. You would have had to create a chest on the old map that Digi would then carry over at some point.

    IIRC, ark chests have not been moved yet.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    Correct. Once we have a proper warehouse I will bring the arc stuff over.

    Ryder: You will find wood and stone at the spawn storage area that are free to take as needed. Most crops and animal supplies can be obtained from the farming quadrant. As for mining... The under town area isn't really shaping out how I envisioned.

    Mining under town: While there is still a build limit. Feel free to mine under town. I usually tell players that it should be community property so as long as you give a little then that is fine. From what I've seen there are caves and at least one ravine down there. There is also at least one dungeon turned into a grinder so be careful what you mine into.

    @BobbyDigi if it isn't turning out how you had dreamed what were you looking for in regards to the undercity?
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    I didn't want to turn everything under my plot to a big mine, just needed some iron, etc. I dug a 3x2 vertical shaft, found 22 iron, some coal and redstone. There are some spots where I dug further than the 3x2, but really that was all that was needed. Should be easy to "board up" if the design for undercity expands/changes.

    Thanks.

    Ideally, your personal resources would come from whatever you claim in the Outlands. That's the area that you can do pretty much whatever you want with.
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    Yea, I should find something in outlands, not even sure where that is HA!

    Redstone deposited in the Rail donation chest.
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    Regarding the Ark... I can no longer login to the old server, so I cannot prepare a chest as an Ark.

    Can that be remedied?

    Sort of. I'll tell you what. We trust ya. You PM me a list of items you you would want from the old server and I will add you to the ark list and provide those items when I recreate the ark chests.
    @BobbyDigi if it isn't turning out how you had dreamed what were you looking for in regards to the undercity?
    The original idea was that all items were community property to be used for community builds and outings. To hard to track and it seems I failed to properly express that as there are mines all over the place under town now. From your guy's perspective, mine away. If you feel so inclined to donate to the community, that is always welcome. Once we figure out what to do with the underworld, we can take it from there.

  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    I thought it was pretty clearly communicated... but then again, I pay more attention to this since I'm running the server =/
  • ZanthianZanthian Mitey Worrier Milford, OH Icrontian
    Yeah, I didn't touch anything under my 5 blocks down. We have a big area reserved that we started our own group mine in. There is plenty of room out there. I think iron is the main limiting resource for tracks to be laid.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    Yeah, I didn't touch anything under my 5 blocks down.
    Same here.

    I currently have a little (and intend to find more) gold that I would like to donate to community projects, however, I don't entirely trust that if I drop it off in a community chest it will even last until an admin logs in, let alone be still around when the community project happens.

    Do we have a way to handle this situation, or should I just be more trusting?

  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    I've personally been holding on to all of my special materials in a locked chest, once a group project shows up that will require it I will gladly dump some of my materials into the project chest. (I have almost 800 units of redstone lying in my house is there still a demand for it for making the subway?)

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    There definitely will be. Powered rails, detector rails, and door circuitry will all be needed in abundance.

    I am all powerful. No one steals from my community and gets away with it. Seriously though, I have the ability to see the history of any given chest. I check the donation box often and if I see anything going out of the chest by any non Rail Engis then I will be having a discussion about it with that player.

    -Digi
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    Cool. Where's the donation box located?
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    In the main spawn area just before the colored area with ALL THE THING.... chests.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    Perfect, thanks. That helped me locate it on the map by the signage.
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    Donation chests can be set up, btw: https://github.com/Hidendra/LWC/issues/138

    I can investigate this more later, or other people could play with it and report back.

    Who says there has to be things to connect in order for there to be planned tunnel-roads? On the previous version, I had a long tunnel headed out into the wilderness that was intended to provide access for those who wanted to get away from it all without having to hide in shacks from creepers during the day. If there was something to connect to I connected to it. Otherwise it just ran straight.
