I appear to have spawned on a miniscule island. I mean TINY, like a lighthouse rock.

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.

My server is still running on creative by the way, built a base on a mountain (it looks more like a vine infested sanctuary of sorts), if you wanna play with TNT go really far away from the spawn please...

How did you guys get your servers working with 1.8? Does the 1.7.3 minecraft_server.exe work with 1.8?

No, you need to go and get the 1.8 server jar and run that (same place you get the 1.8 client jar). The minecraft_server.exe is still for 1.73

It is kind of a pain, at least it was for me. When I tried to make a creative server only some of the poeple could do it. I had changed the game type to 1 but no matter what we did a couple people could not go until I deleted the wolrd folder and created a new world.

Complaint time again.

To whoever broke through my walls in the Nether in order to get around my broken mossy stone door... I understand why you did that, I do the same thing. Of course, I just destroy the two door blocks, instead of the seven wall blocks you did (which is fine, until...). But tell me, WHY DIDN'T YOU REPLACE THE BLOCKS YOU REMOVED? Come on!! Are you seriously that dense? Why is this such a hard thing to understand.

Sometimes you have to destroy something to get somewhere. Understandable. But if you're going to do that, you need to replace what you've removed. And if you can't make it exact, at least lay down something comparable until the proper material can be found.
