    Haha, going in with no weaponry and only a little bit of Flint and Steel. Shame on you!

    well, the server is up and running with the latest update. unfortunately the new version is slow and buggy and constantly disconnects some players, so we'll have to wait for the bugfix (hopefully tomorrow) before functionality is fully restored. sorry for the inconvenience! seems i picked the worst possible time to publicize the server. x _x

    anyways i haven't really seen any changes with the beta other than when you highlight an item in your chest it tells you what the item is.

    i spent today building a sweet art deco kinda house. it's pretty huge, and each floor (3 atm) get a little wider as it goes up, so it looks pretty sweet :D ill edit some pics in soon.

    ive built a little spiral mineshaft going down right into the bedrock for when i want to start looking for better materials, and im currently in the process of building a huge fucking tower which is going right into the sky, connected to my main building by a glass tube which you can see out of on all sides. i broke through the clouds a little while ago, now i just want to see how high i can get :>

    after the towers finished ill start decorating the inside a bit more, and maybe start a greenhouse for growing reeds. i saw a p awesome video where a guy did that, and i want to make bookshelves and paintings and shit

    goddamn i love minecraft :D

    Well, a quick fix is always dropping your render distance (also known as fog) by pressing the f key. That usually fixes it for anyone who can't play it properly due to lag with their computer, but I'm gonna assume that since you have no problems with BC2, it's not your computer.

    Generally, when Notch does an update, the game gets a bit glitchy and laggy (I didn't think lag would affect single player, but I wouldn't know). It's only a matter of time before he posts a proper bug fix that'll hopefully catch most of this lag.

    tl;dr I get this lag too, but I play on multiplayer. So try pressing f for render distance, or just wait a little bit.

    hello

    i tried the free version, which i didn't realise was so heavily stunted and was impressed, but not blown away

    since then i've stumbled upon playthroughs on yt (specifically davidr64yt's) and have fallen in love. i'm going to flounder around hopelessly for my first day and try to get the bare bones nailed down, and then i hope you minecraft vets will welcome me to build shitty little shacks on your server beside your massive fire pits and castles of doom

    Holy crap, Stoo! That's gorgeous! Ahhh, I can't wait till I can build things that nice (: I love the view from the back. Honestly that's one of the prettier things I've seen in Minecraft. Beautiful timing for a beautiful picture.

    All I've got right now is my (currently one-week) shelter that I've been living in as I continue to learn to play the game (on peaceful xD). Hoping to get good enough to build something monumental before the end of Winter Break.

    oh wow stoo, that's beautiful

    that's the sort of shit i keep thinking about whilst i struggle to maintain my shitty shack

    days are trips out to stock up on lumber and sand, and nights are spent inside the spiral staircase i started inside my own home that descends into the beginnings of a mine

    i actually find the game genuinely pretty terrifying, so i'm hoping i can build tunnels, walls, airbridges, anything to get me away from zombies at night

    Notch updated this morning:

    Stuff seems a lot less laggy, especially on Single Player which is great news!

    Well I've been having fun with this game in general. On the smogon server I have built a floating island, which one can get to by swimming up a waterfall. I'll post some pictures one it turns day and my grass starts growing.

    Smogon server is awesome. Especially New Deweysburg ... whoever made that is just awesome, I loved it. Great place to spawn at haha.

    Also I liked Az's humble abode xD I might join you guys after I get some more experience with the game. Seems fun based on who I saw playing (Xaqwais and someone I think!)

    It seems we've had our first griefers, which is extremely disappointing but I guess to be expected. That's what we get for trying to get a few more players.

    Man this game is a timesink, I spend 15 hours over the last two days on this mess. However the server my friend was hosting decided to nuke our world and we can't find a way to restore it. On the bright side I have incentive to check out the Smogon server now.
