Multiplayer servers are, in many ways, every bit a work of art as a good mod or texture pack, and they are possibly one of the most community-centric projects one can undertake. This week, we're going to take a look at the Killion Detention Center, hosted by Markillion and Starzeh. It is a prison-themed server, and the first in the series to be spotlighted - of course, it will not be the last. If you visit (or host!) a particularly amazing server, please let me know about it, and I'll see if I can spotlight it for you! I love seeing the amazing things people come up with, whether it's a themed server, an amazing build server, or anything at all, and I especially enjoy presenting it back to the community, so everyone can enjoy it.




Mojang's Mojam, LEGO

Starting this Friday, February 17th at 10 CET Mojang will be creating a new game LIVE with all of the money going to charity. In tandem with Humble Bundle, the Mojangstas will be producing a game in 60 hours or less, and they want your help!

Mojang said:

We want your help to choose the theme and the genre. The highest and lowest voted from each category will be combined for the game. Of course, you’ve always wanted to play a Shoot Em’Up Dating Simulator with a Candy Land World War II theme. Choose wisely!


So make your voice heard, and be a part of an exciting new game - tell Mojang what you want to see them create in their poll right here!

Minecraft LEGO, For the Win

It's been a long time coming, but we have news on the Minecraft-themed LEGO project! Today, Carl, Notch, Jeb, Jon and Lydia are at the Bella Center in Copenhagen for LEGOworld to unveil LEGO Minecraft! Additionally, they have a video to commemorate the occasion, which you can see (along with specifics on the project) right here. Check it out!

This is great! Killion and its counterpart Intoxicated are both amazing servers, I highly suggest them!

You know, I've seen a lot of votes going to RTS.

The problem is, Mojang only has 60 hours. You cannot build a solid RTS in 60 hours, or else it would be pretty simplified, which people probably wouldn't expect.

Meh. The lego minecraft thing didn't turn out so well, in my opinion. Looking at the pictures, i could barely tell it was supposed to be minecraft. I think they could have done something much more creative with it too, just four scenes that fit together. derp. :P

Make sure a lot of you guys vote for Ancient Egypt. If you don't we'll end up with a weird RTS, Beat 'em Up with Steampunk and Ancient Egypt... and that's not gonna work.

Wow I knew the lego Minecraft project was going to happen ever since I bought Minecraft.  Sounds interesting, though.
