In Topic: Portals.

3 month resets on the nether with only 1 portal!  Mark my words: Glowstone is going to be very very hard to come by.  Rollback technology a generation.  We'll be more reliant on torch lighting.


Surely glowstone shouldn't be an easy thing to get a hold of to start with? :) it's too shiny!


Make villagers. Trade for emeralds. Trade for glowstone. Never step foot in the nether again. 




TL;DR You pre-program a route using items inside of chestcarts that will allow you to AFK an entire trip.


It's too bad this post didn't get more attention. This system is so beautiful *praises own work*


I'm not sure folks realize how much time is lost during transfers. I've always welcomed train rides as an opportunity to take a break from minecraft while I travel. Coffee/teabreak and play with my dog time. 




@ topic


I might suggest a sort of alternative idea... I realize that this wouldn't work super well for the current implementation of SG but perhaps in the next iteration. 


* Make the map smaller, considerably smaller. Do some tests, whatever the maximum comfortable travel length in a minecart is. Maybe 2000 x 2000 instead of 10,000 x 10,000. 

* To make up for the loss of land mass due to smaller size, layer more build worlds parallel to the primary world in the same way the wilds/nether are laid out. IE have portals at the center/fringes. 

* Parallel build worlds have other potential upshots: different build rules per realm, possibility to have biome themed realms (mostly desert, mostly ice, etc), etc.

* Major downside: if there are a lot of parallel build realms we may see a ton of portals per station. Unintended consequences performance wise?

So far my only knowledge of members on the server is through the website as well as what Ive heard from my friend Tom

This card should definitely be on the table. Dawts, care to chime in on this guy?



TJ has many excellent qualities that have made playing minecraft with him a privilege. First, he is friendly and courteous. I recall multiple occasions where he has offered to provide help with builds, and I have seen him follow through with providing such help. Second, he has always treated other players with the utmost respect (more respect than I give). Third, he is an interesting dude to talk to ESPECIALLY when it comes to design and aesthetic. TJ has a lot of really great ideas and has no reservations about sharing them. His perspective is invaluable. 


I highly recommend TJ for this server. 


TJ, good luck with your application. If you don't get in the first time... remember, there is always next month!
