I was tempted to do a Herc II, but I'll need to finish my current project first.

I used to/occasionally do host a private SMP server using Hamachi. Have been able to take 6+ people, at decent lag levels, from America and Britian.

You get Moas/Cockatrices instead? :P

(I'd much rather ride an Aerwhale, personally, but we can't have everything)

Ehhh, wait a second - you mean Pegasus right? Unless you have a thing for riding ancient grecian heroes?

Perseus as in GTF Perseus, presumably.  You do remember that you're on a FreeSpace forum, right?

Ah, yes, that would make sense. I just had a disconnect there for a second because of Minecraft being fantasy and all.

Children, gather 'round and let me tell you the story of the Chatéau du Gravier.



As the name suggests, the Chatéau du Gravier was made of that vilest of building materials, gravel.  Why gravel?  The architect was building for the French, so why not gravel?



To the credit of the otherwise useless putz who commissioned it, the plot of land upon which the castle was built had a beautiful view of the sea.



Alas, said putz passed on, and Chatéau du Gravier changed hands.  The new owner was a moody, militant twat, who modified the castle, claiming that no army could hope to capture it!



Curiously, the structure was renamed Castle Janeway, shortly thereafter.  When asked what she had done to make the structure impenetrable, she replied that she hadn't made it impenetrable, just impossible to capture.



Some people might have started with a door, but Castle Janeway was not run by "some people."  Castle Janeway was run by one tyrrant.



Castle Janeway's ruler insisted that the sixty-two blocks of TNT laced into the gravel walls be left on display for all of its occupants to see, not covered, so that they could rest easy, knowing that no force would capture the fortress.



And so they tried to sleep, but rest did not come easy.



Rest did not come easy, for one night, as day had just begun to break, the castle watch heard something in the hills.



Something was being built in the those hills, but in the earliest rays of daylight, nobody could tell what.



Then, as day dawned in earnest, the truth presented itself!



The French army, incensed at the renaming of Chatéau du Gravier to something decidedly non-French, had arrived with their cannons!



Worse still, and almost inconceivably, they were pointed in the right direction!  Unfortunately for the French, those cannons were also made of gravel, and they were placed much too close together.



Being that they were made of gravel, the cannons were less like cannons and more like giant shrapnel bombs.



Giant shrapnel bombs that managed to fling one live round over the walls of Castle Janeway, that is.



...and when you have sixty-two blocks of TNT built into your walls of gravel, one live round is all it takes.



Not that anybody could be terribly fussed, since nobody particularly cared for the tyrrant of Castle Janeway, the French army, or the glorified pile of gravel that was Chatéau du Gravier.



They do say, though, that bits of the castle were flung so far afield that they can still be found washing up on the beaches today.



...so when you see trash littering the land around your beach, remember that it's the French to blame.



Good night, children.

Give it a try. It'll either click, and click well, or it won't.

Better yet, check out some of the YouTube offerings. They're surprisingly compelling. Over time, you see a home take shape, then a fortress, and then a kingdom.

I found X's Adventures in Minecraft and SeaNanners' offerings to be particularly fun.
X's Adventures has just convinced me to buy Minecraft and waste hours of my life. :lol:
Any more videos like these just send'em my way cause I just eat them up.

Tried the HLP minecraft server today, after qazwsx mentioned it in IRC. Good fun, lots of running around looking at other people's creations, and now beginning to gather materials for a proper dwelling of my own - currently living in a small cave, which doesn't really compare to the towers and hollowed-out mountains I've been seeing, but that can be fixed ;)

So yeah, my girlfriend and myself got hooked. Wasted 2 days on getting it done till now. More than half of it was done with monsters on. Then we had a few creeper incidents, and decided to go and say "**** THEM!" and turned the monsters off.

We're running 13_01 SMP for "reasons" :nervous:

My "F-U" to the monsters is an elevated rail system.  Whenever I start a new mine or project, the first thing I do is extend the rail system to the new site.  (Chatéau du Gravier was the exception, since I was planning on blowing it up from the off.)  Elevated rail can be a project unto itself, but when you travel at night, you can look down upon the monsters and mock them, an activity which is endlessly delightful.  There's a few shots of the railway, mixed in with the shots of my pre-Halloween world.
