Is there anyone being interested in playing the map called Nail made by Rixiot?

http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1191368-nail-a-pvp-4v4-defense-map/

Here's also an example of a match. I don't think the selection thing in the start is a must but it's probably there.

Roos, get IWBTS 2 hooked up to 1, and market it as an express route between spawn and pandora.

Definitely halgdp. I've played a few rounds on it and watched a few more and it's a blast. I'm always up for minecraft pvp in general really.

Yeah, I prefer the "Ban everyone" approach to griefing myself.

Because seriously - what the hell?

I haven't been playing Minecraft much recently, so it might be pretty old, but why is there a Steve head looking in one of the windows of my mine cart tunnel? Well, okay, because it's amusing... I guess I'm just saying I found it :roll:

I'm getting an "Internal Server Error" message trying to connect to the server. Restarting the client didn't help, and no trouble connecting to other servers. Would someone please check on the server. Thanks.

Just for the record, those playing on infina's FTB server should submit bug issues to #MIASACraft on irc.esper.net. The other active admin isn't a forumite, so there's a much better chance you'll get a response over there.

Sorry for hopping on and then disappearing for a couple months. Been hectic. Probably won't be back to video games soon.

If anyone wants that floating island that I desecrated, go for it.

Hang on, checking.

Update: The control panel looks normal. I'm going to look around the configs and see if anything changed form my last backup. The files are intact, though, so data loss doesn't seem to be an issue...

Even easier is what I do: put a block on the ground with a fence post on top. Basically an upside down version of what you have without the need for ladders. But, yeah, I won't have thought the ladder would work and it does look interesting. The nice thing about flipping it so the fence post is on top is better visibility and quicker to build.

Edit: And I figured this all out. Please ignore. Thanks.

I want this Soartex Fanver texture pack for Feed the Beast.

However, when I try to use this 64x64 pack, it slows down my game considerably. My computer can hand 32x32 just fine though.

I need at least one of the following things:

1. A link to this texture pack in a 32x32 version
2. Some help converting this to a 32x32 version
3. A way to speed up my performance to be able to handle this 64x64 texture pack
4. Another really good texture pack for Feed the Beast

Thanks in advance for your insight.

So I finally buckled and bought Minecraft, I had been waiting for it to come down in price, but I don't see that happening any time soon. I had been playing the pocket edition and getting more and more addicted, then I pretty much maxed out the playability of the pocket edition, and the game started freezing (I think I built a too complex mine), so I gave up on it, and turned my attention to the main game. The differences are pretty big at first, the maps are much more complex, having caves and larger mountains and being bigger maps in general, it's just more interesting to look at, also there are a lot more animals and variety of animals and enemies, in PE it's just pigs, sheep, cows, chickens, spiders, zombies, skeletons and creepers. Also in the PE, to craft, you just have to have the ingredients and click "craft", the main version, having to know exact recipes and layouts makes crafting a bit more interesting.

I'm just playing SP at the moment, if anyone has any good MP servers to suggest, or any tips for a new player, go ahead.

@ Avatar, there is an unofficial XKCD vanilla minecraft server (info in post one of this thread) that is hosted by SecondTallon (ST) also a moderator on this fourm. Other minecraft admins you can PM for access ot the vanilla minecraft server are Steax and Roosevelt (there may be more.) When(if) you get bored or vanilla minecraft make sure to ask about moding althogh I would wait untill your a little bored because after you play with a mod its hard to play with out it.

Im terrible at spelling so I asume there is no spell check on this website, been so long since I posted I forgot.

Thanks, i might just do that.

Also I suggest using firefox, since it has spell check built in, if you already are using it, right click on a text field and tick "Check Spelling"
