Looks awesome! Except lotsa mobs can climb ladders, so if there's no door to your base you may encounter some enemies in your base.

Well, I may as well post some screens of on of my bases, my treehouse: (Large pics)

Building this base wasn't exactly easy, especially since I burned it down at least twice by accident. :P Also, just so you know, it's built backwards into the wall behind it. And it's not quite done.

Wow, these put most of my bases to shame.
Notice I said most.

What's up with the minimap?

Also, just an offside, I have a video ready (20 minutes), where I lightly touch on what was changed in the recent update. Would you guys want me to upload that or make a few videos where I go in depth into what was updated?

The minimap's a mod. I know, call hax, but it was soooooo useful. There were so many places identical to the spot where I picked to have this treehouse on my world (awesome, I know) that I needed something like it. Also, I just got the cell-shaded texture pack, and holy crap, is it awesome.

Hmm. Interesting. Not something I'll be looking into though. Something like that would take me out of the game.

Last post still applies by the way.

It's largely aesthetic, but still, REALLY COOL.

I have a video uploading with the gist of it, but if you google "Minecraft Updates," and find the minepedia link, update 1.2 is what you should read.

Lol, I deleted that post because I realized that the reason the update meant nothing to me is because it came out before I got the game. :P
So I just spent 2 1/2 hours stuck in a dungeon, and I must say, I made off well. My inventory is completely full. My actual loot from the dungeon sucked, but I made out with over 64 iron, 20 gold, and 150 Redstone, which is why I went there in the first place, as well as a diamond and 7 lapis lazuli. I went through a stone pickaxe and two iron ones in the time I was there. I also made 5 or 6 obsidian ponds, so if I feel the need to add more nether portals to my world, I know where to look.

Nice, lotsa people playing this now. Is everyone playing on SMP now? I usually just do peaceful and build stuff. But I heard mention of a GT server, and I'd like to see one.

Okay, I broke my main save, which depresses me. I got a mod that makes coral reefs, and now my game crashes every time I try to load without it installed, and with it installed, it's laggy as heck, with a framerate of probably 1 frame every 2 seconds. I think the only way I can fix it is to remove the reefs via a map editor, so does anyone know where I can get one?

If you did that I think they'd still be in the code. Copy your world out, and reinstall the game.

Yeah, a friend of mine did the same. Same week he flipped over his Lexus. I don't know what to make of that whole ordeal. Karma?
