New map, I say. We build it before, we can build it again.

Yeah. You gotta learn to let go. It's cool, don't worry!

We can play the old maps all we want, but just imagine the cool stuff we'll be building with the next one!! Just like with this map, we won't want to go back to the older maps before too long.

Whuuut.
Hell yeah, I'm on my way.

EDIT: Or not. I can't connect anyway.

EDIT2: Yeah, dunno what that's all about. Can't resolve host name.
If you want, you can try mine.

If that doesn't work, add the :25565 to the end.

New map, but I think we should be encouraged to build how we did in Faffingtons map, towns with pretty singular styles, as opposed to our uglier maps where we all just had projects.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Okay, I don't know what happened but I can't run it anymore. It's gone all choppy and crap. I think the map is screwed.
Ah well. Nice run though, guys. Thanks for joining in.

I think maybe we just wait for release now. I'll host again then.

EDIT: Yeah, a common bug was that every time the map was loaded, crash or no, the spawn would change to a completely different location.
And I -really- wish this game would cache the goddamn maps somehow.

Wow that lag was insane. Any way had fun going to bed for reals.

Gotta say though, that was the most fun I've had with Minecraft in awhile.
The gameplay seems much improved with the running, better combat, and the neat sights to see. I hope we'll see even more variety in the future.

We made a tower to get a better look at the surrounding land. It was a great view of the much more appropriate map generation. The land is no longer a mess of sand, snow, and bizarre mountains.
Ravines make for a nice view into the earth below, and oceans are vast. Creative mode was a hell of a lot of fun too when we were just messing around. I could see it being very useful for grand-scale projects.

The thing about survival vs. creative mode is that it's set at the individual player level. An administrator or op can change your mode as needed. So if some folks want to play survival, messing around in the caves down below, all while another crew is up top making a castle town, then no problem.
I don't know if this would be a commonly allowed thing but we'll see.


It's good that the release will be soon. Doing a pre-release was a good idea because it removes any conceptions about it being a finished build of the game; people will happily become playtesters even if that's kinda sorta what they've been doing this whole time anyway.
Smart, bro.
Anyway, I'm excited for more. We'll give it another go soon.

Thanks again for joining, guys. Good times here, and I hope for you as well.

EDIT: I found out what the super-slowdown bug was.
Quote
Servers may experience lag upon the death of a player who is carrying many experience orbs.

'cause like.. Pixxel and I died in some tiny box. Then I think more death happened.
Anyway, there's apparently no limit to the orbs. They just accumulate forever, and when you die, every single one of them drops.
Haha.
Managed to crawl over there at slideshow pace and gathered the orbs. Could host again but won't. That's a killer that one.

It's all here -- http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Known_bugs/Version_1.8
If you have any others to report, share them here.

Found out how to do the time-shifting Notch did in the previews. F6 and F7.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
