I'm really enjoying seeing what you guys build. That fast video of a house being built was fun :biggrin.gif: I'm tempted to go in and build something now :biggrin.gif:

Impressive, but I see no point in establishing a base in the Nether.
This is why Dwarf Fortress players are better than Minecraft players. The day hell (which is much more deadly in DF) was released several people built entire fortresses (not puny little bases like in Minecraft, pah) in hell.
Has it ever occurred to you that this is just the initial release? Notch can change it and make it even better, add more materials and benefits to establishing a base in the Nether. The game is still in development as we speak, or have you not noticed this? Notch was also trying to implement a LOT of features for the Halloween update. If he had ONLY been trying to implement hell, who knows how much more advanced it would be than the current state.
Besides, it was a valid point made by travis. At the moment it's mostly something pretty to look at, and maybe have fun exploring. Who knows if Notch will make cobblestone vulnerable to Ghast fireballs? Maybe we'll have to make fortresses out of obsidian in the future, or some other material he has yet to introduce that you have to mine from the bowels of hell.
Besides, the game is updated and changed so much, I bet by the time stuff is finished or close to it, most people will start new maps, anyway. So all of this is pretty much just us mucking around and experimenting. Remember, Notch is basically allowing the people who have purchased (read: pre-ordered) play the game while it's being made. A lot of game developers wouldn't have the balls to do this, or the desire to.
And if you like Dwarf Fortress so much, go play that instead and stop insulting us Minecrafters. :smile.gif:
This thread is quite useless if we got them whiners in here...
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!! Notch is taking a break!!!!! and he's not working on survival multiplayer until he's done and the bugs in the update still aren't fixed and pigmen keep raping me and minecraft hasnt been updated in a whole day and i paid for notch to update it NAOW!!! WHY DOESNT HE JUST FINISH MAKING THE GAME IT WOULD TAKE LIKE 2 SECONDSSSS.
I started building it on Normal, but had to switch to Peaceful while making the top glass part, damn ghasts kept wasting my precious glass . Anyway, that's my Observation Chamber. I dig a tunel from the portal through my little outpost and right under the Chamber.
