    *Edit: server updated to beta 1.8. Only you can't get to it because the Minecraft authentication server is down. (Or at least it is for me.) Also, only the smp map is running. I have left the "Creative" map turned off for now.


    As for a new map/sticky thread, whatever, if people are OK with the performance of the system, I'll continue to host the server.
    I'm all for a new map - a fresh start is always nice

    There is actually a "creative" mode in 1.8, where you have an unlimited supply of all blocks, where you can fly, where you take no damage, where it takes virtually no time to remove/place any block type, etc. Could be fun or really dangerous to enable that mode on our creative server. Having tried it on a local map, the way it's setup is way better for what we would need to actually clean up the creative map (don't need an admin around to spawn blocks, can remove TNT blocks), but it's also pretty easy to remove stuff accidentally (especially doors, switches, and other stuff you mean to "use" rather than remove), and removes all point of needing particular block types since all materials are removed at the same rate.

    As for the survival server, I've seen a few bugs so far:
    - all chests appear to point the same direction (so double chests "show" rotated even though they physically seem to occupy the correct place)
    - paintings all look super dark
    - minecart didn't show any type of indication of being mined (graphics or sound) when I picked it up

    So I expect 1.8_01 soon.

    Also, try holding Tab when you are logged in. You will like it.

    Still can't even login.
    *Edit: Update, I manually downloaded the new Minecraft. Got right in after that. Weird that my 1.7.3 wouldn't login/update.

    Ahh! I thought you were saying you couldn't log into the game, which was the problem I saw until I went and downloaded the exe again.

    Couldn't even get to the .exe

    However, I figured out my password an hour ago but I'm work and will have to wait till later tonight to get on.

    What's the server ip again? I tried looking for it in all these posts manually and with the search function but I still couldn't find it.

    So, with 1.8.1 being out, do we want to go ahead and create a new map?

    Minecraft has been unplayable for me ever since a certain update (I'm not sure which one). It stutters every 2-3 seconds.

    Been more than 6 months since I've played, but I do want to fire Minecraft back up and see what's been added to the game. Count me in for a new map... after I recover my password.

    I would like to be different and vote for a new map...but a new Creative map.

    • biomes aren't finished yet (no snow right now, for example), and this will affect terrain generation (including in the nether)
    • no NPCs in villages yet, so they're less exciting to find right now
    • more strongholds with bosses will be added


    All of these things are gonna make us want another new map when 1.9 comes out (within 2 months, possibly 1 month depending on if there is going to be another version before the "full release" version) the same way we had no snow, no new trees, no lapis lazuli anywhere nearby in the current map because they were only generated in the new sections of map.

    With a creative map, we can freely test some of the newer features (like minecarts/rails, pistons, etc) without having to mine forever to get enough iron, gold, etc to make them. Terrain generation won't matter as much since the new blocks will be free anyway. We can build stuff quickly, rather than spending the next month building up inventories of building materials only to start over again if we want to make a new map again at that point. We haven't had a good creative map going since almost a year ago.

    What does anyone else think about that?
