omg we need to construct a giant waterslide.
Boat problems seem to be hit and miss. However minecraft carts cause major problems. Wilder built one last night, and as soon as he got in it I got a laundry list of errors in the server log, and the server nearly crashed, kicking everyone but myself.
I played it on my work PC tonight.... [snooooring]
I explored, dug some mines, made some stuff... and got bored.
So when do the skeletons and creepers show up?
Basic Minimap of our current location. The more you explore, the bigger the save file gets, and the more I can render. the original render of this was about 20x taller than this one, as I went on a long journey in a single direction.
If we want to develop a larger full map, we need to explore in all directions.
And I do understand the attraction at some level.
I can only assume the vast majority of enthusiastic Minecraft players never had Little Big Planet (no PS3), so this easy building a game area thing is all new. And that's cool.

I agree, this is definitely a game for "certain" people and not for others. As are most games. We had a conversation during the game - we had all spent time recreating old-school maps on various other games. Obviously we shared a bit of a geeky fascination with building things, etc.
I just enjoyed the random aspect of it. Under my small abode (looks like a small port to the left on the map there) I found various caves that go down for...well nearly forever. I spent an hour fixing a leaking ocean that was pouring into some of these caves so that I could use them. It is simplistic, and I find it addictive - but I can see instantly why some wouldn't.
I'd prefer adding baddies at some point - so there is more of a point to multiplayer (ie. Build a fortress or dwelling to repel baddies at night, and be more careful digging). For me its just legos on the computer and great fun.
But those recreations get exponentially more "hits"- at least that's what I saw in LBP and ModNation Racers.
You really need to put that on your resume.I spent an hour fixing a leaking ocean
Yeah- I can see the building thing. But watching the Utoob videos just had me thinking "I could make a much better version of that in LBP".I'd prefer adding baddies at some point - so there is more of a point to multiplayer (ie.

I think the main attraction with Minecraft is the "works on almost any PC" part- you can do this at work. It's really just a cool time killer.
I think this games golden days are still in the distant future. See "Narbacular Drop" aka "Portal".
Ok, if everyone is cool with the monsters. I have no problem putting them back in. I'll put more fire in the chests too, as that is their only weakness.
