To All Viewers,
The Ancient's world had long since been stripped of minerals and miners had to travel across the galaxy to find possible sites to mine in. I Craft began as Myne, a proof-of-concept Python server written by Andrew Godwin. Myne was revolutionary at the time, being the first server with multi world and the only server ever that was designed to make copies of other servers' maps and archive them. Andrew founded a server called The Archives to this end. Shaava Bint Faroud and her survey team found many possible mining sites during their first survey run of Pern. They pried many enormous gemstones or precious metals from the soils of Pern, including the Shaava Ruby (passed on to Avril Bitra) and the Liu nugget, an enormous nugget of gold pried from a river on the northern continent, probably near Lemos or Igen. These precious findings were not enough to interest a mining consortium but enough that they tempted Avril Bitra, Shaava's heiress, to treachery.
- You guys don't overwork yourselves and lose interest
- Mod quality doesn't reduce due to alternate focus.
- It isn't just a re-hash of notch.tumblr.com
- Has news about high quality/upcoming/interesting mods
- Has some news/gossip from Notch's Twitter (since, really, who actually visits twitter other than to post narcassistic crap?)
Essentially, as long as it's not going to become a drain on the forums, and has news that is more about the community releases and large MC releases it'll be useful.
