Soz. "
Actually, I personally think it's a huge eyesore. It destroyed my wall. And it's taking way too much space up. I watched *Appended* make it, and it took him all of 30 seconds. I'm currently working on taking it down, if you notice the small 2-block-wide gap in its side.

Shit. Did stuff get burned down today?

@Zachariahus: What if you made the giant bomb logo flat, so it looked like a watermark on the isometric maps?  Wouldn't be too great in game, though, although the Giant Bomb server could easily have two bombs.
#154 Posted by powrtrio (53 posts) -

I'm down to help with the gb logo for sure. i like the water idea, it would be cool to see a 3D one also (like the pac man).

@Mikemcn: Man, that thing's going to look sweet when it's finished.

Did we put in any warp points anywhere on the map?  I overheard someone talking about it... 
 
Started building Minerassic Park today.  Awesome Minecraft dinosaurs.

#159 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@bibamatt: Type "/listwarps" for a list of warp points. There's a bunch already.

did the server just go down? 

#161 Posted by This_Dude (295 posts) -

man,  probably a good thing that the server just went down cause i need to go to bed.  I'll have to come back and work on my ludicrous  castle some more tomorrow.

Indeed it did. Along with my internet. Back up now. 
 
I'm going to have a talk with Time Warner Cable and ask them why the hell I'm paying for high speed internet when half the time the damn thing is down.

Great job uncovering the northern expanse tonight. Some neat things were found. I think next time I log in I will try to find my way back to spawn without the use of a compass or teleporting. Bear Grylls Challenge= BEGIN!  
 
If only critters and night terrors were turned on, then it would really be a challenge, hah!

#164 Posted by bibamatt (1086 posts) -

Wow, the new map is looking ace.  Need to explore outside of the main island a bit!  Any recommendations/new builds going on? 
 
My little Minerassic Park island is looking swell on the map.. 
 

#165 Posted by This_Dude (295 posts) -

I think i'm finished with the main structure of my castle now.  Just adding details like chandeliers, tables, item storage, maybe some catapaults and towers on the top.

#166 Posted by eccentrix (1539 posts) -

Man, the one time I try to connect...

#167 Posted by This_Dude (295 posts) -

yeah, it's down right now,  but i'm sure Fun Explosions will have it back up soon.   He's been doing a great job hosting.  I'm out for the evening.  Have fun everyone.

#168 Posted by powrtrio (53 posts) -

man i have been to busy this week, you guys have been having all the fun. well if all is running well tonight i will be on here in a bit.

#169 Edited by Zachariahus (130 posts) -

As much of it as I could capture, you have to see it in-game. 

Night Shot looking back at the first support. 

SUPER SECRET ROOM! 
Just some screens I took of the now nearly complete Golden Gate Bridge. Still haven't decided how I feel about adding wires. We'll see how they look, and if I don't like 'em, they're outta here!

Is the Server down? I've tried to connect, but I keep getting the connection timed-out error message 

#171 Posted by PaneInTheGlass (7 posts) -
@Victus_Unus: I'm getting the same.

Blast! It's up. My connection reset when I was gone, and I needed to re-forward my ports.

For those out-of-the-loop, that bomb is gonna be made now. About damn time.

#175 Posted by Zachariahus (130 posts) -
@FunExplosions: Can I get a "Hell, it's about time"? 
#176 Posted by powrtrio (53 posts) -

I've got a "Hell Yeah!!", but that's it sorry.

#177 Posted by YoctoYotta (541 posts) -

Here's a couple updates. Finished the outside of this castle here. Also, here's the humble beginnings of a 3D attempt at the GB bomb. All the hard work of the hole and sphere are FunExplosions magical doings. The dirt will be turned into obsidian once everything's done.
 



#178 Posted by bibamatt (1086 posts) -

Fun!  Put up the newest map! :D

#179 Edited by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@bibamatt: Map is going up soon. 
 

@powrtrio:

 
 
To everyone else, as well, there's a memory leak bug in Notch's new update. So he's debugging that. Until then, the server will be up, although not a single person has successfully joined this morning. Sorry 'bout that. 
 
Edit: Scratch that. Server is down until 12:00 PM PST (2 and a half hours from now. Sorry, not good with timezones yet.) Fixing extreme lag and possibly getting new chat stuff working.

Hi. I am Poopscooptroops. Can I work on my castle?

#182 Posted by Zachariahus (130 posts) -

 Just a bit of documentation of the first (failed) attempt at building a Giant Bomb. Originally, we were going to try and map the logo onto a 3D ball, but it proved to be quite difficult, if not impossible. So, instead we opted to cover our ball of dirt and the crater that holds it in favor of a HUUUUGGGGE 2D Giant Bomb logo. I'm sure we'll have progress shots of that once it is finished, I just wanted to get these shots up before those are posted, so we have some chronology.

How to light a bomb. Interior shot of "The Bomb"

   Here is an exterior shot of "The Bomb". It would've been turned to obsidian by Fun's super god mode powers, but we never got that far. Though, this room has potential.
 How to dismantle a bomb. Prepping the area for the new logo build, which will sit atop the stone roof.
#183 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@Poopscooptroops: Yeah, of course. I thought I promoted you. Hmm. Sorry for the inconvenience. You've just caught the few times that I haven't been monitoring the server.
#184 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

YoctoYotta finished the Giant Bomb logo. Check out the latest isometric map.

#187 Posted by powrtrio (53 posts) -
@YoctoYotta: Great post Yotta. I'm glad you were able to document the process so well. The scope of the project really shows on the isometric shot. Great work guys. 
#188 Posted by powrtrio (53 posts) -

THIS IS A TEST. THIS IS ONLY A TEST.   I have just started trying out some different builds and ideas on my home server. I am curious how much of a load this pc can bear, so I want to see if anyone can connect, ( 70.234.170.134:25565 ). Gonna op anyone that i have played with on FunExplosions server. This will not be up when the Bombcraft server is running, because thats where i will be. In all actuality, unless we have some kind of theme or unique experiment going on there. I may only use it to gain experience building things. I dont even know if we'll get it running. God help me. lol. 

#189 Posted by RobotHamster (4171 posts) -

I tried logging in but it keeps saying failed to connect, cannot connect to server, any ideas why?

#190 Posted by Amp (48 posts) -

Man, I take a week off and boats are banned making my waterslide kinda useless and I can't get into the server to see if my waterslide is still standing :(

#191 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Can't connect. Additionally, I'd advise against exploring -too much- of the world. Eventually the cartographer crashes when the map reaches a certain size.

No worries, your slide's still standing, just minus the boat chests. To be fair, there were signs at the spawn point and the post here on the forum stating boats were banned well before you built it. That said, I'm not sure what's up with the current server state.

Yeah, we've all been wondering who took it upon themselves to walk out all that way to the west. There's definitely nothing built out there, and probably won't be.
#193 Posted by This_Dude (295 posts) -

i dunno,  i have a much larger map than the one we've currently explored and haven't had an issue with cartograph crashing,  also there are other apps to create server images with that seem to be supported a little bit better than cartograph.  In the end I don't think that exploring will be too big of a problem, but it would be a good idea to only go as far away as you need to to have the room for what you're wanting to build.   Just traveling an insane amount in one direction doesn't really accomplish much on it's own.

#194 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@CptChiken: @RobotHamster: @Amp: I don't mind boats on your waterslide. I even made a warp to it. @Meteora: Don't use cartograph. I use MCMap. @YoctoYotta: It's up now. @This_Dude: I agree. 
 
To everyone else; I was sleeeeeeeeping. Server is up now though.

Pretty sure any other map generator will crash regardless.

My connection is apparently being refused. Maybe the lag is too high because I'm trying to connect from the UK?

That's... I don't know. That's a new one. Most of the users in the server are from the UK, so I don't think that's it. Maybe something weird with your firewall? I don't know. Try connecting again, and if it keeps doing that, send me a screen capture or something.
#198 Edited by gbrading (2011 posts) -
@FunExplosions:
I've given Minecraft.exe full firewall permissions, and it's still sadly saying the same thing. Here's a screen capture: 
 

 

Very mysterious. 

EDIT: Hang on, it's let me in. :P Ah well, crisis averted. :)
#199 Posted by gbrading (2011 posts) -

Typical. Now I've trapped myself in a room from which I can't escape, because I don't have build priviledges. ;)
#200 Edited by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -
@gbrading: Hahah. I was away for a few hours. Some people just catch me the few moments I'm away. I think you've just been trying to connect during some of the drops in my internet connection. It's up now. And I'll go ahead and promote you - assuming your in-game name is the same.
