Building crazy crap is kind of the point of minecraft classic....

Although my friend is already hosting a 24/7 dedicated server on a plenty fast connection.

So, like i said, anyone can PM me for the info.

I don't think my server is going to play nice today so I'll stick with your solution Roadhog!

Alpha multiplayer is like multiplayer farmville right now. Saying as you cant harm any mobs and they cant hurt you.

Hopefully MP Survival is right around the corner. That'll be cool.

Ok so curiosity and the awesome price tag got the best of me and oh. my. god. I literally cannot stop playing this.

I'm doing mostly survival mode one map and mining hardcore on my other one loving each one just as much.

The two maps they've given me couldn't be more different. My map on my survival guy is this huge sprawling valley scape with these huge buttes slamming up through the world like giant skyscrapers. A few of them have waterfalls coming off them also. I basically started my game off by climbing to the top of the highest one and carving out a little cave. Then I decided it would be cool to connect them all with these huge sky bridges so I took advantage of the fact that if you're crouching, you can't fall off the edge of the blocks so I made a couple of these bridges that connect these big mountains.

I'm practically tripping over exposed caves and dungeons on that map as well plus there's a big volcano right next to a cave. I'm going to try and dig a trench down to the dungeon and basically unleash a lava flow down into it

My other map is almost all water where it spawned me but 3 dungeons!! I cleared out one and am basically down about 12 levels up from the void with a bunch of lava caverns mining for diamonds. I turned the difficulty to peaceful which removes all enemies so I can mine in peace.

Check this out. I had no idea guys have gone to these extremes!

the maps are generated randomly in real time. They can generate to 5x larger than the actual earth. So, good luck exploring everything.

It's been over a week with this game and I still can not stop. I've only discovered a small fraction of my world. like .001% I'm wondering if anyone else is playing and if you know of any good servers to join?

I started up a new map and used INVedit to give myself an entire inventory full of TNT

If your machine is powerful enough to handle it (don't laugh... it absoultely rapes my dual quad core system I'm running it on) then blowing up an entire mountain is absolutely epic.

I obliterated an entire cave system that was under the ocean. the results were.... interesting.... water does not adhere to gravity like it should haahaha I think the water source blocks should fall like sand blocks :/
