I made a strip mine to get tons of cobble for a castle, but the server kept timing out ever 10 minutes or so because of the forced save, so I lost it, but I still completed it with the help of 4 other people and diamond tools.
(yes, I know)
View from the top, with ThatGuyRichie who helped and stayed after like 5-6 disconnects.
Staircase to the bottom of the map from the middle of the mine.
This is what can be achieved so much faster in SMP! I LOVE IT!
We found a dungeon :ohmy.gif: Unfortunately, the screen cap was taken just after the mob spawn was destroyed, and of course the chests were empty :c
If you break the chest you get stuff
Still exploring the big cave, we found a dungeon. I put grass under the spawner and voila!
I tried placing a spawner on the surface, then editing the level to make it spawn chickens. It didn't work. Notch must have coded MP to only have pig spawners. (Which would explain pigspawners being in dungeons)
