@evil_gordita: ah gotcha
@JeffreyGee: Thanks Seal, i'm glad you're still checking in here. Yeah, we are such a small tight knit group, it would be best to keep the progress we've made these past 3 years.
@zmaster: so is this the successor to Bukkit?
this is a really cool thing, i'll see if i can grab me some junk
EDIT: Lol at all those postal 2 keys
@darkdragonsoul99: This sounds pretty interesting Dark, what are the games, i'm too lazy to look it up
@zmaster: Yeah I completely agree, and it's not like we have this big group playing on here, if we are all content with what it is currently, then why bother updating. Until the new stuff is anything really meaningful, i don't think it's worth starting over.
@Tashi: Yeah like that is always nice, but honestly i just don't think i have it in me to start from scratch in minecraft again and while i can basically just give myself all stuff i need, it kind of ruins it.
If i remember a while back @evil_gordita we were just going to move the spawn to a new location and "start" over there, i'd be much more in favor of that than starting over on a new map.
@Tashi: i wouldn't be in favor of that, removing certain things takes away the context from them, things like papyrus lose all their significance if just taken out and copy and pasted into a new world. To me, they only make sense when in the context our their surroundings and cities. The things you recommend saving, I wouldn't say are difficult to replicate.
And as i said, there aren't new people, or at least ones that i have seen taking part here on the forums or on the server, I'm not trying to shit on your idea here, we are just working out possible scenarios.
This is really tough, I think it should be clear that I've clearly burnt out on the game, and i'm not sure i have the desire to restart all over again. I'm not even sure who the regulars are on the server anymore. Are the new vanilla changes that substantial to warrant starting a whole new map?
As far as I've seen it's just been more new blocks and shit; which to me doesn't seem worth getting rid of like almost what 3 years of progress on a map? Although it could be said that after 3 years it's about time we start fresh with all the tweaks to terrain generation and whatnot.
I don't see whatever new map becoming as cool or having as much interesting stuff because as far as I've seen, our server audience has dropped quite a bit. But will a fresh start "inspire" people to build stuff because there is nothing? Who is to say, from looking at the "newer" cities on the server, we see how limited in scope and progress they had, and i'm fairly certain most of the stuff in the creative world is just Zcreator's personal projects.
So I guess i'm in favor of just staying on bukkit until that isn't feasible or people demand we start anew. If that isn't what others want i'm fine with starting a new map as long as the new one is uploaded. Maybe starting new would ignite my interests in this again, but there hasn't really been any interesting survival stuff put in the game.
Gosh that was long.
@Tashi: So it is fairly old, and i haven't seen @TheRoadHead on the server in forever, maybe we can summon him to the forum and see what he says. As far as i'm concerned, land claimed by a user is claimed in perpetuity, we have so many cities and so much land, there isn't a real purpose to claim something else from someone. So no, unless Roadhead says otherwise.
The End of the semester is almost upon me, I hope other people can return too, i also might have some time around thanksgiving break.
Man I feel bad for Rallier, this forum is a total mess all the time.
@MAGZine: Well the anniversary never actually went down, we could still try again to have an actual one, we just need to figure out a time and date that works for everybody.
@tecnoc22: @Tashi: If you guys read the first post, you would know exactly what to do, but the way it work is, as long as you filled out the form AND have been onto the server at least once, we can approve you at anytime. If you've done this, i'd be more than happy to get you all set, Welcome to the server!
Hey guys, It's the Anniversary today! Hop on if you want to!
Well it happened guys, Microsoft now owns Minecraft
@Bratcher_Lev: oh shit Bratcher! it's been a while man!
@evil_gordita: @Rallier: Don't we still have both? I made sure to have a rail going to every (major) city.
Man that API has been talked about I feel like since minecraft is in alpha, i don't know why they haven't focused on that instead of these updates that just add junk that has been in mods forever.
@Tashi: Yeah @Rallier did a great job with that, that song is a basis of the pandora station i listen to when i play minecraft. The server was started by @MAGZine and i'm pretty sure on the free weekend which, was September 18th, 2010. I'd love to have some sort of big server event for our anniversary, maybe we can get all the old regulars back on for one night.
I will return once this 1.8 is on our server, i haven't been following minecraft at all, and have no idea what's in 1.8. I can't believe the server is 4 or about 4 years old.
@Fairaday: I was just foolin :P, I'm just glad to see people still joining the server.
@Fairaday: @Tashi: I see how it is
