    I am returned for the time being also.

    Made a stupid mistake of checking up on how you all were and downloaded the last map. The rest as they say was history.

    The person who made the picture messed up the joke. It's supposed to be a play on
    "Get that bitch a ___,
    bitches love ___"
    You have to be a redditor to get it...

    Silly reddit users, always taking credit for memes that came from other sites.

    Its not all that noticeable most of the time - We're alot of folk from europe aswell as america playing on the server, and I myself dont experience much lag, if any. So I wouldnt say "quite laggy" more like "A tiny bit laggy, but unnoticeable after you get used to it" ;)
    And I'm not at home right now, so I cant give ye' the IP - sorry.

    The server IP is in a googledocs document linked to in the OP.

    It's the bold red link called uRPS ADDRESS ;)

    So, my experience with the Solar Apocalypse mod. I can see the appeal if you and some buddies want to do a roleplaying server where you are completely banished from the surface or even any direct contact with sky above, night or day, at least until the modder introduces some kind of protective armor. In single, I had set myself some loose goals that I knew I wouldn't actually accomplish (as I knew I wasn't likely going to continue much longer with the mod) but could still work towards. I did get a small treefarm going, I only managed to miss out on collecting pine saplings, I knew where the nearest grass was and how to *probably* get to it, I did protect water nearby though in retrospect I should have covered before the evaporation kicked in. I cheated a bit to A) update distant chunks to get rid of unevaporated water/burn the land/smelt the sand out past the horizon from my sanctuary and B) to get a better sense of the landscape I had rushed through trying to gather supplies as a flat map only shows so much. I envisioned (had this been a multiplayer session) a decent-sized city under glass where I was and a Great Tree visible behind glass on the side of a nearby mountain overlooking the area. Further in the never-coming future of the not-multiplayer map, once heat armor was available it'd be possible to try to reclaim the barren landscape by placing glass at the highest layer.

    In singleplayer, none of that was ever really going to happen. The biggest takeaway for me was the loneliness. The landscape was stark, much more oppressive than just a simple desert as now you're stuck under glass and whatever you can additionally excavate. The lack of even a single clucken ducken or derpy pig was rather jarring. I had never thought about what non-hostile mobs had added before I found myself without the near-term possibility of their company. Again, it has appeal for a multiplayer setup, but I couldn't do it for single. One funny aspect is the unintentionally built-in anti-griefer measure: Yes, they can break glass, but even a moment's exposure and you burst into flames, death quickly follows. As most griefers tend to be newly-spawned, they've not had chance to get buckets for emergency water, tools of any sort, or heat armor (that doesn't exist in the mod yet), so their opportunities to wreak havoc would be somewhat limited.

    new maps:

    Flat world: http://db.tt/pKJx1xv
    Oblique world: http://db.tt/vT55KBD

    I used an entirely different method for the nether map, and i think it came out much better.

    Not that anyone would be interested in this even slightly, but Jens and Notch have pre-released a still-buggy build of beta 1.8 for testing purposes. And for the lolz I'm sure... ;)

    I've been playing it for the past hour. The combination of mobs that run away and needing to keep the food bar filled is absolutely maddening. The endermen are very underwhelming, i've killed several without a weapon. The larger biomes and rivers are definitely my favorite features. No bugs so far.

    Is anyone else having issues logging on to the server? I'm getting a "Taking too long" error followed by a strange 503 error followed by a minecraft.net url that I have never seen before. This is quite obnoxious.

    Edit: Minecraft.net appears to be down, which I kind of figured. Come on Notch, time to invest in some new infrastructure.
