I would even say going forward...it may be worthwhile to consider something like if a proof of concept is made in regards to communal resources, it should be awarded the command block treatment. That may go a bit far, though. Or maybe if we had some sort of community goals to reach after which Brad would gift the command block? Trying to think outside the box.

Yeah, I agree. There are certain resources that prevent us from really developing early on. Food being the primary one. We all know at least one of us is gonna build some sort of food farm as soon as resources permit. Hell, I've prototyped a cattle leather/steak processor that will be priority number 1 in 2.0 that is very resource lean. Just takes cows and wheat, both of which will be in ready supply. That said, an early-on chicken button will save a lot of trouble.

I think dedicated community resources should start with chicken, possibly wood (to prevent wiping the countryside, like I plan to do ) and maybe coal. Minerals should continue to be a "value-added resource" to encourage work. We certainly don't want a "diamond button" or Grey and I will fight over it. Perhaps transportation system materials so we can quickly safe-ify a Nether Hub and possibly a tram/highway.

Individual projects should (and always should) be self-supplied.

If we were to start a simple list, I would say

1) Chicken (eliminates the need to search out food far and wide)
2) Wood (eliminates clear-cutting and monster tree farms that add to lag)
3) Coal

The above three represent our primary reason for living. Give us a button and we can build, build, build!

Oh, no worries! I didn't read into that meaning.

I haven't had a chance to get back into the game since the weekend, but I'll definitely do that housekeeping in the next few days or this weekend.

Also... on the general subject of 2.0 since I apparently never chimed in, I do hope that Mojang sticks with a reasonable version scheme. I could easily see them releasing 1.10, 1.11, 1.12, etc. until they have something worthy of calling a 2.0 release. Maybe when the fabled modding API arrives (lol!) that would certainly justify a freshly branded release.

Realistically, I could see us having to start a new world before a 2.0 arrives. Heck, it would be worth it just so we could have some new adventures.

You might have liked it in the early days when I had the Hardshell Armory and Tool Shed. You could push a button and get any diamond armor or tool you wanted. Those got voted off the island so I stopped doing them. I loved it in the original world though.

Now THOSE were the days! Seriously worth the LONG ASS RUN out to Turtle's place. That had to be before the Nether was introduced.

Hmmm… a button for hardened diamond armor with polished obsidian plating and cotton liners would be nice.

Oh, and rocket boots.

If you guys haven't tried in the last few days, anyone who normally suffers FPS performance issues downtown, please take a stroll through the area now and let us know if it's any better. I knocked out several lingering entities a few days ago, and when playing with my modded Optifine installation, I now get between 60 and 100+ FPS depending on where I am in the downtown area.

Brad, you should post an "Optifine install guide" for people like me who haven't done it since the FTB era.
