Place two portals next to each other in hell The Nether in the direction you want to speed up movement to.

Well, at least we found out where Billy Mays went.

Yeah, sorry about the additional wait.
Holding out for fixes to the updates and proper implementation of features. Really, besides some rough biomes, SMP is exactly the same thing as before.

I'm as anxious as anyone to get this thing going again.

EDIT: Though I will admit I've put the server up briefly to see if the performance/lag continued. The lag stopped, so that must have been me despite my speedtest results still being normal.
Confusing.
I've done some additional work alone, just a small amount.

Flattening the immediate area is going okay.


The spawn is pretty well done. Might need some decorating but not much.



We don't need to flatten a massive area or anything. Just a big one for a small central area.
But I would prefer that most areas do get flattened and evened out. Looks more attractive. Adds to the work but it's worth it in the end.
As for the station, I'd like it to look a little something like this but not completely.


I'll keep thinking about it. Mostly I just like the pillars and the use of half blocks.
We need more building blocks that are made out of basic materials but look different for aesthetic purposes.
Notch at one point also said he'd love to let us paint blocks as well.

There's a lot of potential here.  And with a proper artist on the team now, I'm hoping they can at least make it somewhat more pretty.

I got a weird bug today where I couldn't pick up any feathers from chickens. I need to make arrows!
I need a new tag.

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

That looks awesome!

And also really taxing to the computer.

Yeah, just a bit of flair for people who want to have it. Makes the game look pretty sharp, but the effect is greater with a higher resolution texture pack.
Pretty cool.

There's a bug fixing update

Quote from: Notch
The server update is not mandatory, but you might want to update just to make sure.

This is a bugfixes only update:

* Signs on the sides of cacti no longer crash the game
* The player won’t get stuck on the top of the world in multiplayer
* Reverted mob spawning back to the old code, it was far to annoying. I have plans on what to do with this.
* Fixed the leaf particle colors
* Reduced CPU usage for monster spawning, but there’s still a lot of work to be done to reduce lag on SMP servers.
* Attempted to fix the portal dupe bug where you could exit through a different (new) one than the one you entered through.

About the portals, it’s possible that two portals can lead to the same portal in the Nether. This is because the space down there is compressed by a factor of 8, and I haven’t come up with a good way to fix this yet.
I might just end up doing an explicit one-to-one binding between portal pairs, but that’s nontrivial as it should survive the portal being temporarily destroyed. If you TNT a portal then rebuild it, you’d expect it to still lead to the same place, right?

Hmm.

More bug updates are coming next week, mainly related to survival mode multi player.

[edit:]

Client 1.2.1_01 fixes armor. And I forgot to mention that Music will play in multiplayer now as well.

Also I rolled a new world just to wonder around in, a couple of neat shots.

I'd so go over and knock the sand down that hasn't fallen yet.  I love doing that.  OC about it really.

I love it when monsters are chasing you in shallow caves and you get to kill them in a sand cave-in.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I have had that happen a couple times. I had to restart the game.

Now if you put a hat and a feather in the crafting cube it makes pasta.
