An arrow and/or a splash potion. No tool, I just need to shoot/throw at someone and see how it works.

If you're not looking, though.

Well, if T gets the shnizbiscuit running, I'll let you shoot me and my 49 XP. I know you've been wanting to do that for a while now.

Since November 2016, I have tried to live my life without politics or football, and it has been the most peaceful time of my life.

If this becomes a thing, I think we should do an Overworld high-speed rail. I miss the view, tbh.

That's a lot of iron. You got any of that stuff left?

When I think of high-speed rail I'm thinking a straight 1-block-wide zoomer out to a destination with lots and lots of powered rails.

I have a couple chests of rails right now. Though, it's also a lot of gold expense to make powered rails, which I can do for a bit. Redstone blocks for power I can do all day long.

So it goes.

I have some rail, lots of iron and gold, and a mountain of redstone. So we can do it together, provided …

Never mind. I was gonna say "provided we get time to collect before we move to 2.0", but it sounds like 2.0 will be a start-from-scratch thing, anyway. So, perhaps the 1.9 thing is a shoot-from-the-hip, blow the bank thing!

Neat. Can I dynamite the White House?

Oh fuck no. I'm thinking about building it RIGHT NOW*.

North is the logical direction, since that portal won't be wiped because Flowerland. But I wish it was West. Maybe later.

2.0 won't happen for a long, long time, so don't worry about it. If it happens earlier than late 2017 I'll be shocked.

In the meantime Drew, roll a 4-sided die. Pick a direction. We'll make the path to and fro unobtrusive.


It was fun in the old days to see everyone shit their leather pants. This can happen again.

OR, damn, it would be great fun for us all to go legit 10k+ in each cardinal direction together as a group looking for a reasonable spot for an Outlier Community.

So it goes.

Since we're trimming in a month or so maybe it's OK?

I don't know. It's kind've hard to get a lot of players together lately. Even so, I'm always up for an adventure.

So it goes.

I can adventure in the evening, but not here at work. Chances of having to bolt are too high.

Alright Drew, I'm leading the first adventure by foot tomorrow night, 8EST. We'll go 10k out and then kill ourselves. You should definitely come along. . . .

Leave all armor and whatnot behind. Beds will be crafted along the way. We'll meet downtown, for those who want to venture.

This is OK? Brad? Turtle? It won't add too much to the world glops, I assume, since we're going straight out. I hope.

So it goes.

Sorry guys but I have been running like wild and haven't gotten the beta world running yet. I'm going to work to get it done tonight though. I'll post here once it's done.

I would also like to help with an overworked rail system. I love the idea personally. The view is huge for me too. Horseback is nice, but not as good as the view from a rail.

Sorry I didn't make the planned expansion. Feel free to do it, I love that idea and we have enough storage to support that kind of expansion.

It hasn't; there didn't seem to be a lot of interest in an exploring party, even though I think the idea of multi-towns is still a thing that most would like.

Big hikes like these are always the best fun in groups because someone inevitably dies in trans and that's the greatest for laughs and chides, so I may try again to get a group together for the cardinal suicide missions. I'll do them alone otherwise just to get the terrain on the map.

Thanks T! I think the new Elytra thing is going to be a hoot, if minimally useful.

So it goes.

OK! I tried running it out. I went west because, well, I always go west.

Fun, but very, very long. A thing that should be done with others. Also, maybe bring supplies you can lose, because bringing nothing was just a bad idea. Bring food, a stack of dirt and a stone sword, at minimum. A bed too. Naked Caveman is great if you're set on a plot, but not so great on the run.

Lots of great stuff right out at the edge of 9K. A beautiful birch forest right on the sea, but also another area a tad north with loads of cliffs straight up around a bay. The cliffs are the best I've seen and we haven't really done that before, but I could see us settling either.

Also, we have more to go.

So it goes.

Ok, so the test world is running. I haven't tried to log into it myself, but it's running for those feeling brave. I'm heading to bed and will try to look at it tomorrow if there is an issue. The world is volatile and subject to being wiped and killed at any time. Nothing is sacred in this world. I'm seeing lots of bugs in the logs so don't expect too much out of it.

Just switch your version to "snapshot" in the launcher. Then connect to the server but specify port :25566.

Holy shit. In the new snapshot they fixed the 'flowing water' texture on underwater glass! And I didn't think 13topia could get any sexier.

Almost time for a proper 1.9 thread I think. With just a little over a week to go before feature lock I hope we get some new blocks besides the awful-colored purple ones. Maybe Brad can do something about that.

So it goes.

Yeah, no kidding. I was hoping for a good block-raiding, but what to do with purple blocks other than just having them?

They're pretty ugly, imo. Maybe Brad can darken them up or something in his texture pack? I don't mind purple, but the stock color is a cross between cold medicine and toddler vomit, and I'm a fan of neither.

So it goes.

Does Drew really only respond through tweets? Imma have to test that.

I will go N tonight to die ~8EDT. Fellows in death are welcome.

[edit]: OK, I tried tweeting. We'll see what happens. Also, fuck every social media platform and their insane, bullshit ideas of UI. What the fuck.

[edit]: Ha! Well, I guess it works. Let's move it to 9EDT and see if we can't get a few.

So it goes.

It will be fun!

There's really nothing to it. Remove all armor, grab some food, and if you want to be fancy grab a bed and an iron sword.

We will go 10k out, up to 15k.

It's a total blast. You'll see.

So it goes.
