    Had a record in it. "13" we already have at spawn so it goes into the Digi collection.

    speaking of records, lonestar and I have been doing some record hunting and have extra copies of "Cat" and "Far" to deliver - where is the community disc collection so that I can drop off our duplicates we find from our creeper disc hunts?

    Right at spawn, near the pig pen, across the path.

    oooh Far is awesome could I get permission to play it in my house music box?
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    I monitor the music box to make sure that the records that are taken are put back. If you want to play a disk elsewhere then spawn, just please make sure to put it back when finished.

    Thank you for the donations Gorzo and Loanstarr. As Ryder stated the chest is literally right next to the center of spawn.

    We are also collecting saddles with the plan of pig battles. Thanks Android for the idea.

    Android and I found a skeleton spawner inside the Stronghold at

    Edit: Removed for Community Reserve

    I grabbed the mossy cobble, in exchange the 2 pig saddles will make their way to community chests

    We have changed Furnaces to be public by default when they are placed. If you want a private furnace, simply run a /cremove then /cprivate on it.

    I found a worldgen mineshaft. Upon exploration I found rails to take up for the rail projects, but even more I found TWO THREE FOUR cave spider spawners.

    The co-ords for the Spawners are (standing on TOP of the spawner)~

    I saw a slime down here too, but it didn't drop anything when I killed it, sadly.

    I found a pair of very active spider spawners at -889, 18, 171. Not exactly close to town, but there they are.
  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    Wow, those spider spawners are pretty closely clustered. I wonder if they'd be close enough to create some sort of mega-grinder generating 4 spiders at once.

    We figured out there was a setting causing everyone not to be able to run /help. Thank you everyone that reported the issue and we've now changed it so everyone should now be able to run /help

    Community library a few of us have been working on.

    Piston operated bookshelves and all that fancy stuff, should be finished sometime soon(ish).

    Why is there lava in a library? that seems like a bad idea.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Why is there lava in a library? that seems like a bad idea.
    Indeed, take it from the voice of personal experience placing lava ANYWHERE near a wooden object is asking for a massive fire.

  • BasilBasil Nubcaek IREEELAND Icrontian
    Rule of cool.

    Lava is at a minimum 5 blocks from anything flammable so it won't spontaneous ignite, I've overtorched the area around so short of people actively leading creepers inside it'll be fine.

    Also digging out the plot so leaks are contained.

    Question- Jens said that they plan on releasing 1.2 tomorrow. Do we update, or hold off on that?
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    Question- Jens said that they plan on releasing 1.2 tomorrow. Do we update, or hold off on that?
    Minecraft updating and Bukkit (The server software) updating is 2 different things. So the answer is probably not tomorrow. But once a stable Bukkit 1.2 is released, yes.

    -Digi
  • But bukkit and minecraft are of 1 now! I know it will take time, but soon enough we won't be waiting on bukkit to update anymore after a minecraft release!

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    We may be waiting longer than we would like.

    A LOT has changed in 1.2, particularly the save format, which doesn't convert in the server version (this is from what i'm reading).

    If that's the case, then the great stuff from 1.2 will never arrive in our world.

    There is, however, a theory that one could take the SMP world, load it up in single-player (which will convert to the new format) and then put it back in SMP, allowing ALL of the new features (jungles, cats, etc) to function.

  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Toronto, ON Icrontian
    Minecraft [...] 1.2 will automatically convert worlds to the new format. World files in previous formats will remain untouched, allowing the player to use them in older game versions. The world generator has not been changed, so there will be an additional 128 blocks of air above the usual terrain. Which means 192 blocks from sea level to the height limit.
    tl;dr version: new stuff will exist in new chunks, but existing chunks will not be regenerated with new terrain content like jungle biomes.

    There's a cave spider spawner down there too, but they're so common in mines that I didn't bother writing down the coords. Most of the mine is unexplored still for anyone who wants to have at it.

    Seems the server's down. I've been getting timeouts for the last half hour or so, no response at all.

    Please report issues to me via PM. Posting to a random thread is indeed the slowest way to get the message to the people who need it.

    Glad to see the community getting on dat minecraft. Its always nice seeing a half full server like last night. With this redstone update coming up shortly, i hope that more people will come back to playing minecraft like @UPSLynx & @cola

    I was on 50+ hours this week working on fully functional grinder in UPS Land with @UPSKingpin, @carwolf & @UPSNatedog (yeaaaa boyyeeeee) and just milling around bullshitting with the group. Calling each other names, mom jokes, @UPSHitman whacked a pigman(cue outrage) LULZ , Boozin' and being completely addicted to this damn game!

    Get on this game, EVERYONE

    I saw UPS & Cola on last night. I am miles away though, does it take long to get there? BobbyDigi is going to let me know where is a useful place for me to set up shop, but I'm open to bumming around and helping anyone who needs it.

    Lets you easily update/rollback to different versions of MC so you don't have to worry about accidentally updating when the server isn't.

  • BHHammyBHHammy Somewhere in Hell Icrontian
    If it were up to me, I'd say wait a month after the redstone update finishes (give it time to settle/fixes to roll out) and then start over again. Minecraft has shifted so much since we started 'er up the first time. Make sure to put a memorial in, dedicate it to Spence.

    ...holy shit, I just checked the first page of this thread. It's been over a year since we restarted the server, actually. And Lynx got trapped about 20 times.

  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    Other than emerald and quartz ores spawning there is no reason to restart the server. (Please correct me if I am wrong)

    From what i see that is accurate digi
  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    With the trading in villages and potential new outlands expansions, we should be able to get enough of both to keep us going.

    Until there's some really new functionality that would require a restart, then it should be considered.

    BTW: Whatever happened to the arks from when we reset last time?
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    There aren't enough people playing anymore to warrant a restart. At this point, a restart would just mean a barren, boring server.

    I am also curious about this

  • BandrikBandrik Elkhart, IN Icrontian
    As far as I'm concerned, with Digi's guidance and everyone's hard work, we created WAY too awesome of an Icrontic City to do a server restart for a DAMN long time. Plus, what Lynx said.
