    They had Markus Persson on BBC this morning as Minecraft has won a Bafta award. To think in the last 24hrs alone it's sold over 10,000 copies. The man is worth a fortune!!!

    He mentioned in his next game he wants to do a space exploration type game. I do hope it's in the vein of Elite or something

    Really wish the XBLA version would drop. Tried getting back into it via computer, but I'm just too lazy.

    My private server im running with freinds had the good fortune to spawn IN a small desert village center on the edge of a jungle biome.

    naturally we took it over and vastly improved on it.

    Then i started making a powered railway across the desert and saw a huge series of plateaus which made me know exactly what to make...

    castle baller of swag mountain! which has a monster spawning attic and is super creepy at night in a thunderstorm.


    weird thing is the portals into the nether take us to a nether from my single player world adn the portals out take us to a 2nd overworld with no monsters, just lviestock and trees forever. so we send people into the "slidecraft" world for mats, one dies and ports the rest back with full inventories of swag!

    Awesome castle, hellsing. Me and my friends have a server as well but we haven't worked in it for like 6 months. Like you, we built a castle. although more on the horizontal plane rather than vertical. Yours is very impressive.

    2)

    Neil, I didn't know it was out on Xbox. I'm not surprised, considering the success of the game. Perfect for kids, I'd say.

They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    Google feed the beasts or the technic pack for a whole series of modpack launchers. So even on the mac where mods are an arse to install you can have huge worlds with more dimensions, more ores, fossils for bringing dinodsaurs back to life, airships, npcs that give quests, machines, working portal guns, nuclear reactors and so on.

    I literally cannot see any reason to play vanilla anymore, its so shallow by comparison.
    http://feed-the-beast.com/




    Its free, you just download and login into this custom launcher with your regular minecraft login and it loads up a version of minecraft with 32 pages of new items to make. and its like 100 items per page.
