Then someone directed me to the communarium, which I promptly took 8 watermelon slices from, and set off again! I'm currently logged off, after digging myself a little hidey-hole. After running for approximately one episode of House, I ended up completely surrounded by Creepers and skeletons. I also ran (not sprinted) long enough that I'm out of food, so I'll have to solve that right quick. I'll probably end up trying to find a rather large ocean and build my stuff in the middle of it, a la Lex Luthor. Water keeps the Endermen away! Then I'll connect my place to the Nether Trolly, once I find out where exactly that is. Does it connect with Spawn?
How do I know if I've gotten to 1.8 lands? I didn't see Endermen until I ran for quite a bit, does that indicate anything?
Nest question! Is there going to be a Full Release Wipe? I'm not leaning a lot in either direction (and I understand people wouldn't want to lose their stuff), but just figure I'd ask. I also imagine that the answer is somewhere in the hundred page thread right hur.
Let me know if you need seeds of any variant.... or more melons. Or, you can take them from my house. 8 melons aren't very many (you... you will want to see what Ganalef has at his fortress), feel free to take as many as you need from the communarium.
Nether Trolly service connects to spawn, but you may or may not actually need it. If you're aiming for 1.8 lands, then yeah, you'll want a path through the nether. There is also an extensive railway system in the overworld, but those are due west and south.
To see if you're in 1.8-lands, check the map (the interactive one) - you'll see telltale boundaries between old terrain and new one (the terrain just suddenly cuts off, leaving big walls of exposed caves and stuff). Endermen spawn everywhere, so they don't indicate much. There's no current plan, I think, to wipe, as long as we don't need to do so (by Word of Notch or something). The ops have worked something out.
