Isn't every minecraft map potentially infinite? Or am I getting it wrong? >_>


There's a practical limit of about 8x the surface area of the earth.

Hey gauph, I've drawn up schematics for an underground section of the water fort thing.
Can I build it?
EDIT: Sh*t, there already is one, I'll build it somewhere else then.

Server is pretty slow these days. It's not that exciting without new content.
But thanks for stopping by.

And no idea how to get any mods to work, sorry.

Who is the cause of the puntastic "tilde-ath" signatures?

EDIT: You guys took quite the avoidance approach to this server. Everything is just-under-ground or way high up. Nothing at ground level.

EDIT: I hear a barking dog. <_<

EDIT: Oh man those dirt posts were a lifesaver. And there was the "follow them back to the city" sign right there!

EDIT: I think that dog is either outside or one of the chihuahuas upstairs, but I can't tell which.

EDIT: Is that a tower made of... trees?

Ha I made those dirt post because the spawn had randomly changed one day, and I wanted people to find the town again. The spawn was reset shortly thereafter and I thought they would go to waist. Glad they helped.
I need a new tag.

Good to see a few managed to be on at the same time.
So Notch says the game goes beta today but that there's not an update just yet. To be clear..
Quote
The ETA for beta is "sometime today", and there won't be any major noticeable changes. But there's a game update coming

I was kind of expecting an update, but I guess not just yet.

The game update he promised for last week is probably going to be released today too though:
Quote from: Notch's Twitter
Included in the release today is leaf decay, working server-side inventory, throwable eggs, and less system hungry servers.
(source)
Which should be good :)

I completely agree.
And from a tweet a few days ago, it seems like he changed things around a bit so that it won't break with every update anymore. Or at least will be easier to fix when it does break.

Also, while server-side inventory will mean you can't repair tools by dropping them anymore, furnaces should work better.
And the better server software is good too, though most of us won't notice that too much I think.

Beta!

Quote from: notch
* Working server-side inventory! Finally! (And as a result of that, a whole pile of bugs and issues got fixed)
* Made SMP servers save chunks way less often in most cases. Chunks don’t resave if they got saved in the last 30 seconds
* Moving too far away from a container, or having it blow up, closes the inventory screen
* Fixed /kill
* Introduced leaf decay again. It acts differently from before
* You can now throw eggs
* On a whim, added super exclusive clan cloaks for Mojang Employees
* .. and something else, which is even more rare

Goes to look for what's rare...

EDIT: Rollover on inventory tells you what stuff is now.  
EDIT2: Can't actually change what's equipped while using chests.  You can only do it from using i.  (It's a bug)
EDIT3: Throwing eggs spawn a chickens!
