Didn't think there was a working sand generator in this version. Did you see a video or just used an old build?

Yea I switched over to 1.5 but the FTP still isn't working. I replied to them and haven't heard back yet.

Once the FTP works. I can't delete the nether until I can access the server files. I was hoping to do it today but we'll see.

1.5 is UP!

Hey everyone, so as mentioned 1.5 is now on the server.

I've updated all the mods but haven't had a chance to test everything so please let me know if you any of the following happens:

- You see an enderman carrying a block
- You see an animal or mob trample a farm plot into regular dirt
- You can open other players locked items
- When placing down a chest/furnace it does NOT lock automatically for you
- Lightning causes fires
- Fire spreads like normal again

Also as previously mentioned the Nether will be deleted as soon as I can access the FTP site. I would suggest that if you sign out of the game this weekend do it near your house as the nether pathway system might be gone the next time you sign in.

Will have more updates in the afternoon (hopefully). Please let me know if you notice anything else not working or acting strangely. Thanks!

Great... I hope it's today - I need something to keep me off the jungle that is the Politics board!

...and like magic as soon as I write all that - BAM, FTP access!

I won't delete the nether quite yet as I'm about to step out for a few hours. Should be done by 5pm EST at the latest.

Last update until this afternoon - Every mod is now fully up to date except for one (locks). When I try to update it via the console it just keeps saying wait... for hours. I decided to just upload it to the server directly and it seems to be working even if the console still says its out of date. Please let me know if it's not working. Thanks.

Nether's been deleted/refreshed. Trying to connect as many portals as possible to the new path. Will work on it over the next few days.

As long as its far enough away that it doesn't interfere with other people's projects I don't see a problem. Though from past experience I've seen people want to make huge projects where they destroy a whole patch of land and end up quitting the project leaving a big mess behind - so if you are planning a big build i'll ask you to build it piece by piece rather than clearing a huge area first.

Nether paths

Quick update on the Nether. Most of your portals are now hooked up and a path has been made for you. If you haven't had yours done yet let me know when I'm online and I'll set you up.

So back near the end of the old server I was leveling at the ender farm and thought I stumbled upon a trick to let me level without eating food. It isn't quite that glorious actually, but now that I've made my first trip to the new ender farm I've quantified it. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not is it's quite simple really.

Test 1: starting bashing enderman from level 0 with 3 empty food containers. I managed to hit level 30 just as starvation started, so 7 food bars took me from 0-30.

Test 2: started at level 0 with 1 empty food container, then ate 1 steak to fill my food to max and what would appear to be using only 1/4 of what the steak gives you. But onto bashing endermen I got to level 30 with the food bar still full and after enchanting up to level 10-13 again before dropping to 1 empty bar.

I'm not sure if it works the same if you eat a slice of watermelon, but I don't think so. So it would seem you get much better mileage out of your food bar if you overfill it.

This sounds like someone who doesn't understand how food works This was a thing a while ago, and Science happened so we know how it works now. There's stuff on the wiki about it if you wanna see all the details. But basically:

Food has two values: the bar you can see (food bar), and the bar you can't see (saturation bar). When you do stuff it'll empty out the saturation bar first then starts on the food bar. Food has two values, one for each bar.

Steak has a high saturation value (the best along with Pork) so you'll appear to be staying at 'full' for longer; if you eat Melon (one of the worst) you'll see the food bar drop very soon after eating. You can see when your saturation bar is empty when the food bar starts bouncing.

Well said on the last part. Yeah, I was thinking about making a little town or something. Nothing like the size of a full city but a few buildings, a public mine (If that's allowed, I'll attempt to make boundaries so they don't go to others' property) and a keep or something. It'll be a while and will be far away if I do it and it's fully allowed.

Hey, Randall (or KR) - any chance I can abuse your kindness the next time I play? I'm hoping that I can find one of you guys online, and get you to teleport me the moment I log on. If you're willing, that brings up another question - is there any reason the map is no longer showing players online? Is that just on my end? If need be, I can always go to the map, and ask who's online before actually logging on.

Thanks

Edit: the map now seems to work for showing players online... didn't yesterday for some reason.

i have a city project underway but it's quite awhile from being a reality as i still have aton of digging to do. i am building whats going to be a large underwater city in the southeast of the map.

to get there use the Lighthouse portal and follow the path down to the public mine if you are interested in free mining at y7ish level

i figure the more random things we can build the better

Is it ok now? I just tried it and it works. Maybe the Mojang servers were down for a bit.

The place works great. I hope you don't mind but I put a crafting block beside the iron chest, that one seems to fill up quickly and it makes it more convenient to turn the ingots into blocks.
