Minus Paypal charges and taxes of course... If he takes it out as salary, he would probably get about 50% of that (not counting the paypal charges).

Still, not bad ;)

WTF.

I'm split. It's certainly in bad taste because it just happened on the other hand, I love that we live in a world free enough to create games like that and explore worlds/feelings/ideologies other than our own.

Test version of infinite maps is up. What do you think? I think it's going to be awesome! :D

When is Multiplayer Survival supposed to end (when you play it)? When all players are dead?

It ends when people don't want to play any more. ;)
I think I read somewhere that he wants to add some sort of goals, but I think the main idea is to survive while digging and building. Like Dwarf Fortress.

Well, when you die, you die. So rejoin as a new character, essentially.

He was talking about respawning semi-recently. He doesn't want an experience system, but he wants there to be a severe penalty for dying. At the very least you lose everything on your character.

Infinite maps seem really nice, especially if there is some sort of multiplayer freebuild (maybe the server could limit how far you go). I've really gotten into minecraft lately, since I was gifted by someone on the IRC channel. I made a giant 3 block wide wall with windows protecting my fort :D. I'll post pics if anyone wants to see it.

I started a new game since I made the wood ship. It's on an island map where I took a random baby island and left it very normal looking but if you get close enough it immediately turns into a trench mine. The mine has a little base and goes super deep into catacombs. Then I went island, built a castle into a mountainside, then continued to expand it. Dug another catacomb. And then started work on a huge watch tower with a moat and turned the castle into half of a church. I'm having way to much fun with this!

Does gold have any purpose? And where do you find diamonds?

You find diamonds the same way you find any other ore, somewhere deep underground. As far as I know gold has no other purpouse besides being pretty. :P

Gold is extremely useful as a metal that doesn't corrode easily. Check out the high end PCI card connectors and stereo plugs. It's also the most mallable metal, gold leaf used to be common for advertising.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

I've always been a platinum freak myself, the more uses the industry has the more it gains value. Even more so than gold because its required for high temperature such as rockets and jets.

^ Allegro.cc. ;D Somebody should make a game of that... Trying to get the train back on track... :P Or make a video generator based on real threads. :o OR an engine that does both.

Really weird glitch. I started a new game and spawned really high up in the air, and then fell to my death. :o

Carries the thread with superhuman strength
(Edit: But didn't have to, thanks to Neil Black)

Has anyone found the pyramids in infdev? I have been running around for a long time, but can't find them. Starting to believe it's a hoax, but there's a lot of people on the minecraft forum that has posted pictures of them.

Addendum:
Also, the spawn-in-the-air bug is well known. The game can't decide where to put you and the house, because all locations it tried to use wasn't good enough, so it gives up, puts you in the air and wishes you the best of luck...

Just a suggestion. Using allegro.cc threads would make the game extremely hard to play. I think something easier should be implemented for easy mode.

Little bit late on my screenshot reply since I got sick :(. It's a little hard to see at night but it's still visible.

The view from outside. There is a torch behind every outside window so that the inside of the wall is lit.
{"name":"600628","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/c\/cc3166223d9db127109f1bec1ef4b887.png","w":850,"h":479,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/c\/cc3166223d9db127109f1bec1ef4b887"}600628

View from the interior of the fortress. Torches on the wall provide light to keep the creepers away.
{"name":"600625","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/0\/b\/0b82054d84ca494d0ce4e073f69139b1.png","w":856,"h":479,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/0\/b\/0b82054d84ca494d0ce4e073f69139b1"}600625

Inside the wall. The windows are arranged in such a way that you can't see through the wall, which provides protection of the inside from arrows.
{"name":"600626","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/6\/46eba4aec94c804bf249745486a67bd5.png","w":851,"h":480,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/6\/46eba4aec94c804bf249745486a67bd5"}600626

The view from on top of the wall. I plan on using this for shooting baddies with arrows, however I have yet to get string from a spider.
{"name":"600627","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/6\/c6c2a76a924897ba20819106cc227dc1.png","w":851,"h":480,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/c\/6\/c6c2a76a924897ba20819106cc227dc1"}600627

Under my fort there is a massive series of caverns that I used to get all the stone for the wall. It has to have taken at least 500 blocks.

You can get string from any "mob", including pigs and sheep (at least, you could when I last played).
