They don't seem to. They are a lot closer to wheat in terms of how to farm them. Well, excepting that they need soul sand instead of farmland, and don't respond to water nearby, of course.

Holy crap, really? I'm excited. I'm out of connectivity for a little while. Let me know when we get 1.3!

Who's been on the server in the last 24 hours? the 3 times I've been on (and for long stretches at that), there has been nobody.

Me, but only for short chunks of time. I've seen Monkey, Jaho, bluejello, and Jacob also.

Yeah, me too, I've been on and off, and I chatted briefly with you too! People might be saving up their energy for the 1.3 release.

As I have given out the code for my vault and no one cracked it I have removed the prize. (I may have also run out of diamonds).

Another interesting tidbit of info: Lakes are apparently generated after desert temples, which can make for some interesting looking structures (I really should have taken a screenshot). Desert and Jungle Temples both really look cool over rivers, in a related note (of course, as rivers are biomes they generate first).

I can't log on. "Internal exception: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset"

I'm assuming this has to do with 1.3.

I can say that the server has NOT updated, as my minecraft is 1.2.5 and I connected fine. Also I am not getting a update (due to other things, easily solved)

I can't wait for the 1.3 update for the server. seeing as I've already updated ( :D ) and forgot to make a backup ( :evil: ) I'm stuck with it.

Laying this floor is taking far longer than I would have imagined. Also, I will need to go on a clay hunt.

I would help, if the server were on 1.3.
Also, clay seems to be even more common in 1.3, though not as great an improvement as, what was that, 1.7 to 1.8?
Then again, it may just be that my first project in a world is always a lighthouse, and this time I chose to use brick.

Thanks for the info.

I've been playing Technic. Got myself a LapPack, Diamond Drill, and tier 3 Divining Rod. Plus a semi-automatic quarry. And Nano Armor and a Sabre. Life is good. :)

I think the server's having some sort of issue; there were 6 of us (including myself) on the server, I got disconnected (not my internet connection's fault; I checked that). I go to log back in, and it says 0 people on the server. I figured it just kicked everyone, but I got a message saying "Internal exception: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset". This happens consistently when I try to join the server now.

Here's hoping it's just the alien recon fleet accidentally frying the internet!

Nah, that's just the alien recon fleet upgrading the server to 1.3.1.

BTW, there are slimeballs in the prize chest for the skyblocks, what's the task to earn some?

And is exploiting the redstone to obsidian bug in order to make a nether portal against the spirit of skyblock?

Couldn't connect to minecraft.net error.
Deleted Minecraft.
Redownloaded it from the website.
Only gives me the application. The minecraft folder remains empty. (Missing jar files)

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

I was just on, and set up four more skyblocks. At least one has been claimed already.

The chests in the example were incomplete, I did what I remembered, but may have forgotten something.

I'm still out of town for a couple days, but to my best memory te skyblock chests included:
1 sugar cane, 1 cactus, 1 lava bucket, 2 villager eggs, 3 wool, 1 melon, 1 pumpkin, 1 bone, 1 sapling. I believe that's it.

Slimeballs were for a future achievement, I'll think of one. Do high-altitude portals work yet?

Wool!!! That's what I forgot. Also it was one bonemeal, not one bone. At least that's what you gave me.....

I have claimed one of the sky blocks. I have a house and cobble gen set up, and a couple farms...

List of things lost
all my grass
some dirt (not a problem, really)
lava source (picked it up with a bucket, client thought I had but server disagreed. destroyed source block before realizing, replaced)
some other things, nothing major.

the path to the achievment board needs a rail in my opinion. Also just put in three signs into the sign box.

In other news, [url=reddit.com/r/MineZ]MineZ[/url]. For those wondering what it is, here is a link to it, think DayZ in minecraft. If you see me on it it may be my sister playing as me, so yea... getting another minecraft account in a couple days for her.

There shouldn't have been a rollback just from changing the server jar, I'll pass this on Talon may know something I don't.

When I have more time I'll look into the commands.
