That's what I was thinking if it indeed happens. Maybe a "shower" of sod ala what was done for the final layer of the Skyranch.

And the PO, the theatre, and the station. Maybe the Comm Exchange too (it would be nice to see all sides).

So it goes.

If we are voting, I'm in for a new world when 1.2 comes out.

I'd love a new world. If it becomes convenient at some point after that, it would be neat to have my mountain house brought over, but only when convenient

I'd be in for a new world, too. I've got the plans set for my project, but as of yet have not started the actual framework - nothing to move over. I think some of the issues of spawn moving like they did would be good to fix, too.

I Vote for a new world. Keep the creative mode area separate, not move spawn and centralize the main area.

Oh, go, please may I transfer the arts centre, though? There's way too much gone into it now.

Yeah, the theatre should be moved. I took a look around it tonight - the progress is excellent thus far!

But only after that part where we live rough and rugged and run around from creepers and peepers and all the other critters, figuring out the world.

It's the best part of Minecraft.

This.

Things started out this way in the current world, but rapidly devolved as people spread out.

Things we really need to do if we move, in order:

1) Establish a communal safehouse area immediately (e.g. Spawn Mall).
2) Establish a consensus on a centralized town square area for the transplant of the current Terranova community structures.
3) Terraform the community area, using the magic sand = dirt admin powers (e.g. skyranch)
4) Explore and post land claims (reasonable ones near the community area please)
5) If you are going to build an attention dominating structure try to place it beyond far render distance from the community structure.
6) Consider a 2nd cityscape area for select BP structures

That's a good plan.

Hopefully there's a big ocean somewhat nearby that 13topia can be moved to* without crowding anyone's skyline (sorry bobsky! ). That can wait 'til we explore a bit and settle on a base area like you say though. Fun!


* It looks like it's ~1MM blocks from water level to bedrock and would be less above since I haven't finished the upper sphere, so hopefully it won't be too much server strain to transplant it in 2 jumps.

So it goes.

So.... looks like an unanimous vote other than our fearless leader. Brad? What say ye?

Ultimately it's your decision, as you're tasked with the moving duties.

So I put up 1.2 on my MBP and found a cat! (SD|HD)

Can't wait for Brad to update the texture pack for this one. Jungle looks kinda odd.

Oh.....Vines are ladders now!

Increased world height coming in 1.2 according to jeb. Looks like 128 maybe?



Finally we'll be able to build more than a hut on top of mountain ranges. Good news for Hogwarts!

So it goes.

Creepers no like cats. (SD|HD)

Also, the current build enables Zombies to break down wooden doors on the two hardest levels.

Worlds are already 128 tall. Sea-level is around 64. Maybe it's 256?

I think he indicated 128 above sea level. So, I'm guessing 256, although he didn't say that the ground would get "deeper". 192 would be odd, I guess?

I wondered that too. I *hope* the ground>bedrock doesn't get any deeper. Mining for redstone and diamonds would be a pain.

Although more realistic. So, you know, could be interesting. Also means that mines wouldn't need to spread as much as there would be double the minerals in the area below "your" land.

256-block base-jumps ahoy!

Looks like spawners might be fixed too:


I found a zombie one that had a zombie in it as opposed to the spider you see in this one.

I found some rubies the other night under my place. I'm willing to share them.

Hell yes. I've been wanting emerald forever. All would be moot if we'd just get the option for cooking up some stained glass though. Probably easier on jeb to add blocks like that than adding another mineral or two within the existing dispersal of underground whatnots.

Speaking of ease, I have the feeling that the world is going to be 256 like mentioned above, just with another 128 of air layered on top of the existing 128 world we have now.

So it goes.
