Tell me about it. I have a huge cobble mine down in the dungeons of winterfell, and am about to make an extension castle in the epic mountains to the south of the castle. I've used a stupid amount of cobble. more than I care to count. Maybe not as much as the circle fort though...

For whoever is on the server with the username amishdmeon, I'm making obsidian now, if you're still working on your arenas.

Nope, unless it's this stone ring.

Could you tell me how many blocks you'll need to make one of these? What I really need to know is the area exposed to the combatants, so it can get an obsidian casing. If I didn't explain it well before, I want to make one of the arenas out of obsidian and then allow players to do absolutely anything aimed at killing each other, aside from using diamond picks and placing more obsidian. It would also allow terrain and obstacles to be built inside, with the obsidian as a clear boundary. I'm hoping for fights involving lava and blowing things up inside :P . I can help build too, if you want. You're still building a large coliseum surrounded by several smaller ones, right?

Did a quick bit of expansion on the covered walkway on the way to the ARS/Ikari. six stacks of cobblestone slabs does not go very far. I will need a lot more cobble to complete this, and probably a couple of people to hold cobble and fend off ghasts. When I have the items for rewards to give out, I will do so.

So because of my roommate I've started doing more survival based minecraft rather than messing around with various things in creative and custom maps. How many of you remember the day that we were making the epic adventure out to the lands of Pandora? Do you remember how I was in a boat for approximately forever looking for land and then found a mooshroom island that I immediately laid claim to as my property? Well, I have now decided to take control of it. If you'd like to come say hello, feel free but there's nothing out there for now since I just got there pretty much.

Also, could someone add my friend to the whitelist. IGN is schli153.

Ok, I have made it to the first cavern with the walkway. I am going to setup a little homely area with a farm, supply chests, an ender chest, a portal to an overworld cobble generator, and other things if I can think of them.

Hey, I visited the city vault and assumed from the word 'vault' that the buttons were for a combination lock and wouldn't actually do anything without the right combination. Anyway, I randomly mashed the buttons and items popped out... :oops:

I don't know how to get in to replace them without breaking the vault, so I dropped them in the double chest beside it. It spit out 3 diamond blocks, 1 gold block, 4 iron blocks, and 1 glowstone.

I need to start coordinating on getting my path created. Easy enough to follow, once you are on it. I am going to have an enderchest at the first safehouse. Not far from the safehouse I want to build a Nether Castle. I have an idea on how I want it, but it will need to have its own farms to support it. These will happen in 1.4, when I can push pigs and cows into the nether.

I'm getting update-itis again. There's so much I totally want to wait for for. Anvils! Corner stairs! Paintings with items!

Ya this update is another big one, I will have to go around my city and incorporate those corner stairs( I dont think theres is a hole lot but I may redesign the halls now that they will look beter.) Im not sure how anvils will work but I can only assume it will be awesome with just enough suck to ruin it. and im going to have to redisign my storage rooms for those new itme signs. Also carrots! I dont even have somewhere to farm coco beans yet, not that I would use them, but I may have to get a couple pig ranches around my place and just ride pigs with the speed boast from the beacons everywhere. So that subway system im building may never be used.

Also, what are the chances that scallel is back and is hangin Benderes around with tnt behind them so when you burn them to get them off your walls it blows up?
They call me Mr. Piman

Anvils are costly (32 iron each!) but they make for nice fencing and stuff.

Also, there should be a way for mods to implement custom potions from now on, like things that give you Knockback X or Jump Boost X for a certain amount of time. They work exactly as advertised.






And, dear roos: implementing custom spawners will also be easier, apparently. So you can spawn in live TNT and falling anvils from mob spawners.

And dear everyone else: Don't even get close to IWBTS from now on.

Another fun (and awesome) feature for those of us who like to pretend that we're electrical engineers with redstone, it's crazy fun! The new locking repeaters are awesome.

Though I'm sure the crazy redstone guys will find some awesome use for it, I can't immediately see where I'd use that... When I first saw it I thought it'd be a memory cell or something.

To the unupdated: Pointing a repeater to another repeater's side (i.e. the inactive sides, not the input/output sides) will and powering said repeater will lock the target repeater into whatever state it is at the time of locking.

... There's probably already a really cool use for that, and I'm completely missing it.

If you can unlock it just as easily, it'd be useful in providing more sustained power levels to something you want on for more than a few seconds but less than five minutes.

Like if you want a sliding block doorway to only remain open for 30 seconds.

It's locked as long as the power to the repeater is on. From the bit I've played with it I've made a 3x1x6 T flipflop and then combined them into a counter that has 4x6 modules, completely without pistons being involved so it's nice and silent.

Given that I pretty much only use redstone for piston doors, having pistons in the mix is inevitable, and I think the T flip flops that I use don't use a fixable exploit, but who knows, maybe I'll find them interesting later on.

The OPs are planning on using script blocks to teleport players when the blocks are activated. I guess they wanted to require structures to make it less cheaty and decided on an airplane theme rather than some kind of enderman related teleporter theme.

Couldn't some OP put a command block at spawn? And program it so that if you activate it. The closest player gets teleported to Pandora.

That is exactly the idea. Except spawn doesn't have an airport (not counting the carrier).

Hi there.

If you are wondering why I disappeared again, its because.... SIGH I died and found myself back at spawn. (Also, Borderlands 2)

Is there any map to find my way back to Pandora? (And the way to Miner's Paradise?)

We also need to find a way to make sure that there is an unmoveable bed in miner's paradise.

Maybe I'm thick, but what is "Miner's paradise"? There's talk of using a command block to make a teleport from spawn to pandora a possibility.

I'm kinda keen for the corner stairs in the update, it'll be interesting to see how they work.
