    Just deleting Rich's pyramid and letting it regenerate as new land itself would give as a few hundred new biomes ;)

    Just to change topics a bit, are there any plans/events for the coming Halloween night/weekend? Say turning the sun off and have Zombies spawn everywhere? Just so I know if I need to have a night off ;-)

    Doubtful.

    Elt is living his life at the moment and I suspect doesn't really have time for things like that.

    Then again he may decide that this idea is the most wonderful thing in the whole world ever and cancel all his plans.

    Work on the assumuption he won't thou.

    But for you I could follow you around for an hour chucking zombies at you.

    Very true! We'll see what happens, they aren't expecting the full 1.7 release until around November though so we got time.

    I think we can probably handle adding to the existing space, but it might mean cleaning up edges and what-not.
    The question is - if we were to extend, what would be the best direction?
    This time around I'm not really bothered - south before was best for me as I was on the border :)
    North would let us add in a square area, but for the same volume along the east or west borders we'd only get 2km (hah, only!). Problem is if we extended north, then the next time after we want to extend we are buggered because we'd have a long thin slab of map.

    In other words, my preference would be east or west along the whole edge of the map.

    And now I type it out, I reckon east might be better - because we can hope we get a think batch of land so the seas would actually end!

    Hey there, ex-RPS Minecrafter here. Due to a recent PC cleanup effort I've stumbled across the Minecraft installer again and thought I should give the game another look. A few hours later I was gazing at the wonderfully pixeled sunrise from atop of my very own treehouse and instantly felt nostalgia and the urge to build structures setting in.

    So. I just wanted to say "Hi" and ask if there is still room for an on-and-off visitor on the current map. Haven't logged in to the server for a long time, so I guess I'll get into contact with one of the admins as soon as I've downgraded to the server's current version.

    Hope to see you soon, happy tinkering!

    If you have been on the server before, you will be where you left.

    And you can continue on your digging way without having a discussion with anyone.

    Welcome Back!

    Cheers! I have one question though: I tried to downgrade my version of the game to 1.5.2 to be able to connect to the server. However it seems as if the game updates every single time I launch it and re-downloads the 1.6.2 version. Any ideas about how to prevent the auto-update from running?

    Edit: Nevermind, just found this post (and read Wubble's note before that one) from a few pages back:

    Just a thought, nothing more. And I'm busy enough shooing creepers and spiders out of my new attempt at construction near the desert temple.

    Hi guys,

    I hope everything is going well with the server! Just a little message (as I havent asked in absolutely ages :) ) for any donations towards the server costs. Absolutely no pressure to donate anything, the server happily just runs on one of my boxes that I rent. If you do want to donate anything you can use paypal and donate to donate@urps-minecraft.co.uk

    Cheers,

    GingerBeast

    Even more problems. Moving up to 1.7 breaks all pre 1.6.3 structures like nether fortresses, villages etc. To combat this you have to update from 1.6 to 1.6.3-4 and then rediscover all of your map by loading the chunks as in physically walk around the whole map and the nether (or at least the bits with different mob spawning rules like fortresses) loading every chunk and then once you've loaded every chunk again then you can update to 1.7 and the game will remember where your structures are.

    :/

    Server crashed again.
    My 'fault' this time - I was showing a friend around (is called dowit - please whitelist later if you see him on and I'm not around).

    So what happened?
    He logs on. I go through fixed portal at spawn to RPS Nova. Boom. Server dies, but restarts.
    We log back on, and this time I try going through a not-always-on portal (to club red I think, I still wanted to show him RPS Nova). Server dies and doesn't come back up.

    :(

    The only solution is a server wide train network! :D

    Maybe it is time to reinstate the daily or twice daily restart? Would automate things and not have some of us crying when we can't get our fix :)

    Long time no see guys! Just seeing if there's a link anywhere for v1.5.2? I've just downloaded the latest version (1.6.4).

    I found that getting the latest version included a launcher. It added the idea of profiles, allowing you to create a profile that ran 1.5.2, which it would then download on demand for you.
