I'd very much like a larger map.

Here's the normal size and the size I'm using:

Normal:
Width = 256
Length = 256
Height = 64

This one:
Width = 512
Length = 512
Height = 128

It's 4x the size of a normal one in widthxlength and twice the size in height, just come and check it out.

EDIT:
Been doing some calculations, for huge maps there are quite a few choices for dimensions (among others):

512*512*128

768*768*56

1024*1024*32

2048*2048*8

I guess in terms of huge looking while still looking good the 768x768x56 one is the best, currently I'm using the 512x512x128 one but the map will change later today (and then it will be the one that you'll play for about a week unless the server fills up faster than expected).

DarkDragon's Minecraft Survival Server (use this as the IP):

gamingsteve.dyndns.org

- The server uses a whitelist, if you're not on the whitelist (can't connect), PM me your minecraft name.

I think that now that we can host our own servers, we should get some sort of nation building game setup. That would be a lot of fun.

Territory is sectioned off, limits would have to be imposed on the amount of block changes 'per turn', resources would actually have a value and could be traded between nations, successful farms with irrigation would be needed. There's a lot we could do with this. It would take time, but a good setup could yield awesome results.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

It would require a good deal of 'trust' in that you only make a gold block for every raw gold block mined, or some other block for iron mined.

Would be hard to do, with all the micromanagement.

scrap the resources idea and just have nations, how good the nation is would depend on what it's inhabitants built for it.

My server is always up.
Though the player base has gone from dwindling to next to nothing. Got maybe an idler or two in there at most.
Guess we need those updates after all.

In any case, when it gets slow enough (and we're close), I will cease hosting until the interest comes back.
That'll probably happen after we get some decent gameplay updating.

I've seen about 6 people in darkdragons server today, but only 3 in yours, both are up, they are just really laggy.

Thanks for hosting Gaugh.  I really appreciate the private server, even if it does cause me the occasional fit. 

I'll be shutting down my server tonight.  It hasn't garnered much interest, as I was expecting.  I just started it to get a feel for hosting the servers, and to give myself a feel of power.  Total, unlimited power. 

And Darkdragon's XL server is cool, but I still like to explore the random caves and dig through the ore veins.  Might be time to refresh the map, Gaugh.
