OK, I will get back on between July 20 and 30 and fix things like a fiend. 

... wait how the heck did creepers get down there??

Also I'm blushing, the redstone is based on cookie cutter stuff, I just apply it logically.  I'm pretty good with logic though.  And I understand why you think I was a wizard if you looked at the hideous mess on the inside of those stations and tried to make sense of it

Man you guys sound like you've been doing some amazing stuff.  I will definitely be taking a tour the second my highway is operable.

Nowadays warping (use the /warp command... it gives you the warp list, then you just pick a warp name and type /warp NAME HERE) is the preferred mode of transit, but I still build traditional transit options for traditionalists and to give it a more immersive feel.

City's really starting to go somewhere now. It has 14 buildings (one is floating away with a lot of balloons tied to it and another is at the end of a bridge connected to the city... it's kinda in the suburbs), Central Park, two main methods of transportation to get there (three if you count the Nether, which actually can be the fastest traditional method of transit. Each block in the Nether = 8 blocks in the overworld), and a baseball stadium. By the time it's done, by my calculations, it'll have over a hundred buildings. =)

 

Today I built the four stations for the downtown subway (subway strictly for getting around in the city. Main station is in the Cube, with the four other stations (color coded Red, Blue, Gold, and Silver) at each of the city's corners).

I've got a variety of things I'm planning to build in the City. This post is to be a collection of the ideas I want to use so I don't forget before I get home. Most of the creations are going to be edited from what I'm posting here; these posts are just inspiration.

-More "traditional" pagoda http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/320859-step-by-step-pagoda/page__gopid__6169690#entry6169690 COMPLETE

-Greek temple http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/316859-step-by-step-temple/ COMPLETE

-Docks on the east end STILL ONLY A CONCEPT

-"Multiroof" building DESIGNED

-Korean text somewhere STILL ONLY A CONCEPT


Also, reminder about adding some details into the Round Castle. Balconies. Can't forget those.

City's subway station is complete and fully operational. I'm thinking about running Line 2 out to SETI and the rest of the desert.

NEWS!!!

new right has been granted wand/save command from world edit to all mods and up, no load yet, but in the unlikely event of a bsod you can save your work at your pleasure, server is still backed up once a day in the early am automatically and once by hand in the pm. i will clear the save cache once a week unless it is abused in which case it may go away.

slimes are back so sticky pistons go


new group Supermoderator this group will be our world edit non admin group. has no new members yet nor are its rights finished, i frankly am not familiar enough with world edit to grant rights to this group but tone should be adding them soon or if he can get a full list that will be needed i will add them to the group.

still trying to hunt down the bug that is blocking us from fixing the spawn.        
FIXED was an issue with bukkit and not the plug in, man what a pain.




@*also after our failed attempt new contest to name the server*@

winner will get rights to message of the week for 6 weeks, to be updated every Sunday and a promotion in the server.... also maybe a tshirt ..... or a creeper...
rules and prizes subject to change without notice, at my will bwahahahaha

I reiterate my nomination:

Hakubi

If I get a second hat in the ring:

World 1-1 (for the regular map, World 1-2 for the Nether obviously)

I vote that we come up with a unique server name, but I do like the idea of calling the overworld World 1-1 with the nether as 1-2.

Given the frozen nature of a large percentage of the main lands, and the fact that almost all the architecture has a European design to it, something with a north European feel seems more fitting IMO. Just fits the atmosphere.

Which is why my vote goes for Rhodinia.
