yeah sponges have a pretty massive radius, so you can dig out a wall and hide it behind some blocks and it'll still work, actually breaking every law of physics.

Then again, there are floating blocks and infinite water, so realism was thrown out of the window the moment this game was created.

Sponges have a radius of 2 blocks.  If you hide them, they have an effective radius of only 1 block which is essentially useless for what I was doing.

And I had already put sponges and a wall blocking the lake.  That should have been enough.  But being an obvious wall blocking water, it was too much for a griefer not to destroy.  If someone wants to flood your stuff, they will.  No amount of walls or sponges will stop them.

Sponge - Wall - Opening - Opening - Wall - Sponge

You can make hallways of of a two tile radius. The point of hiding the sponges is so that griefers have to actually look around to find your sponge.

sigh* well, the servers really laggy
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I know you can do that for hallways.  If I was just making hallways, it wouldn't be so bad cleaning up the flooding.  If you're making a giant pit, that won't work.

And he still flooded it by getting rid of everything stopping the water. 

Stop blaming the victim.  There's absolutely nothing to stop that from happening.  1000-clicks per minute scripts see to that. The only thing I can do is make my own server and build unbreakable blocks, or might as well just play SP.

The worst part about it is that I had just bought the game not 20 minutes before it happened, and it totally soured me on the game.

Clicking scripts are a very big source of annoyance.

The pyramid is even more messed up, and is now near impossible to repair;



Some idiot destroyed a stabilizer sponge, and now the lava inside the pyramid has been cooled.

It happens. Most of us have had something that we worked hard on get destroyed (sometimes more than once). Just a part of the game until someone does something to change it. Don't focus on the bad times, try to channel into the fun you had and let that come out.

But in its creation, I repaired two lava floods, and a number of water floods as I was figuring out the correct placement of the stabilizer sponges. Lavaworks and waterworks in this game are a real pain to make, especially when they're combined. I put a huge amount of time into building it, only to have it ruined.

I'm sorry to hear that. I had several large tunnel projects flooded on several different occasions and this was before the sponges came out. Of course I was upset and I did overreact but you've got to try to let it pass. It's only a game, all will be well. Learn from the project and apply it to new things!

Only thing that annoys me is when people continue to dig with lava or water behind them.

Dude, I played that with a  bunch of people on a leaf stadium earlier! Man, they stole my idea.
late response, but we did do that!

It was on the map with the huge mural and it was built on the side of my spawn tower!

I've started a server of my own.  I know there aren't that many people really playing, but it's there and fresh if you want something different.

If you want it to be a themed server, let me know, and I'll change the motd to what the theme is.
