      I tried the free version and I had a ton of fun building stuff, I'm just guessing that you don't have unlimited blocks in the paid version?

      Still on the fence on whether to buy it or not.

      Correct....I was kind of let down by this but I think it makes the game more interesting. I really hate the need for tools....but makes it more realistic I guess (even though a single person carries around metric tons of rock and soil on their back ).

      I am still very new to the game, but I think once I get to experience my builds flowing into a fellow community members will make it fun again too.

      There are server "wrappers" which allow you to do things such as fly/hover, and move at faster speeds. As well as give the admin more options for setting permission levels for players. It also can allow players to summon items. These wrappers are mostly used for building the gigantic structures you see on youtube.

      I haven't really dove into experimenting with wrappers yet, it's a little technical, and I just haven't had the desire to put the time and effort into getting it working yet. Somewhere down the line, if everyone really wants a wrapper on the server, I'll put one on.

      Are you open to a community vote on these changes? Maybe once I get more familiar with the game I will have a different opinion, but if I could fly or build things in two seconds I feel like the game would get boring quick. I kind of like having to go and find materials...or barter with others to get what is needed for my building.

      Or can users reach certain "achievements" and gain these abilities? That would be cool.

      Finding stuff is fine - the tools become a pain unless someone gives you (or you build) diamond tools which can last for quite some time...I built a underground tunnel all the way back home, but its stuck under water right now, so I'm trying to figure out where it is...

      That's really how I feel about it as well. It will take a lot away from the game. The cool thing about wrappers I guess, is that you can enable or disable all those things. I really like the permission levels that are available in most wrappers. As this server gets more players, I wouldn't mind appointing a few "moderators" who would have the ability to have some of my power like giving players water, lava, gunpowder, and other things that you currently can't obtain "legitimately" in the MP server.

      BTW: As far as voting... This certainly isn't a Communist server. I'll do whatever the majority of players in the server want to do.

      I had my first real issues today - large craters kept exploding near my house - ruining towers, trees, etc...so I just quit out without putting up with it. Angered me to no end.

      This is due to creepers. Its up to you guys to decide if you want me to keep or remove monsters from the server.

      They drop things... I think spiders drop string (or silk, whatever...), creepers drop gunpowder (+ sand = TNT), and zombies drop... well, I found some feathers after killing two, but that might be because the bigass fire I started to do so took out a chicken as well...

      Yes, it does. If you look back a page or two, you'll see a picture of where it takes you.

      BTW, who built that Helms Deep looking place way out in the middle of nowhere? I was out exploring on my boat and stumbled upon it. Pretty sweet.

      2 things i want in the game: 1, arrows should make TNT explode, or at least countdown. 2, let me lay down gunpowder like redstone powder so you can make chains of tnt.

      I think down the road they should have firearms, like flintlock rifles. and also the ability to craft parts to make machinery... Like tunnel Borers/drills, conveyor belts... Steam engines, to put on carts, boats, and other vehicles(trains, cars). maybe even some sort of ultralight aircraft.

      Obviously with the shear size of the world, we need mapping tools, as well as motorized vehicles. As the game becomes more stable, I'd hope they would add such things.
