Hmm, haven't played much minecraft recently since I can't connect to the server from university but here's a thought:

Spider can't fit through a gap that's only 1 block wide, so would putting crenellations at the top of your wall block them off, or could they climb over those? What I mean is, can they climb a pillar that's only one block wide?
Not a winner anymore.

I wondered about that too, actually.

The fix is up, 1.2_01

Quote
This update affects both the client and the server, but the server update isn’t mandatory. I highly suggest updating, though.

* Fixed various blocks acting really weird when placed (rails, torches, and more)
* Optimized performance
* Added a new painting that we forgot to include yesterday
* Reduced spawn rates a bit
* Fixed a whole pile of lighting bugs
* No more ghosts at night
* Added a temporary fix to get rid of chunk visibility errors

The last one is interesting.. The problem with chunk visibility errors was that for some reason the “dirty” flag on chunks and the list of “dirty chunks” got out of synch. There wasn’t time to try to do a proper fix today, so I just made the client check a couple of dirty chunks per frame to make sure they’re in the list.

So until we fix it proper, you might get invisible chunks, but they will fix themselves after a second or two, usually way before you even get close to them.

*edit: It's definitely running better for me, not freezing up when drawing in new chunks

Do the squids creep anyone else out? I'm afraid to go into deep water now. D:

I think they are cool. I wish they made a better sound though. Plus, it's not like they can hurt you.

They scared the crap out of my son last night. I guess I forgot to mention them when we were talking about the update. (evil grin). We run a local server with animal spawns but no monsters.

The spiders on walls thing is spooky, but actually really nice. I now run a one space wide area three spaces deep. I attract spiders towards me and then jump down. The spider stays overhead and I just kill him and collect the silk.

And then a creeper jumps into the hole.

Anyway, I lost my sound in minecraft. I also looked in the options, but it says it's turned on, but I can't hear anything!

You might have to go in to your config file in your .minecraft folder and manually change the number. I had that happen to me once.

Creepers don't climb walls, so I am safe so long as the outside wall is at least 3 spaces tall.

What I would do for spiders is to addan outward overhang to your walls. My castle already had that, so I don't really have to worry.

It would appear that spiders can climb glass.
