    Ok. I was just wondering because all the other maps I've spawned were pretty bad. I jumped with joy at the sight of an iron deposit. XD


    most maps have crazy cave systems like this, its all about where your spawn point places you. you could build the same world multiple times and get different spawn point each time, some of which would land you nearer to an awesome cave find, others you would have to search and accidentally stumble across it.

    I used it as a mapping tool before the map was introduced
    I went to my home and made that my center, then travelled to all my mining locations and mapped where they were in relation to my house, then I had a visual tool when deciding where and how I wanted to expand mining operations

    other than that it was used for performance and system monitoring

    posted a message on What do you want in 1.7?
    i would like to be able to make a train

    like adding a powered cart, 2 regular or chest carts, and 3 iron ore, and a 3 cart powered train is made, then you can place it on the track and the powered cart will pull the other 2 carts

    not sure how realistic this is, or useful, just thought it would be nice for the whole using minecarts to transport things idea

    or maybe it doesnt have to be a powered cart, just be able to link carts together

    posted a message on Why would you strip mine?
    I like to tunnel down to bedrock, clear the bottom three levels for about 40 blocks around the mine shaft, then go up to level 15 and branch out, from here i will branch until i find a good cave system, this has usually netted the ores i need and a dungeon, after this i will go up the shaft another 10 - 15 levels and branch out again, this will usually stock my iron and coal rather quickly.

    I will then hop a boat and move to another area a distance from my home and start another shaft, repeating above.

    so far i have 6 main shafts, currently working on connecting these with an elevated rail system

    not perfect, prolly not most efficient, but its fun and challenging in its own way.

    When I feel the urge I will go top-side and clear out some moutnain cave systems, just for the fun of it

    Yes, I have one:

    Use your damn imagination. Jesus our saviour gave us imagination to use for good. Too many people use it to fufill their deviant sexual desires when they should be using it to be creative about positive things.



    WOW!! someone needs a hug... lol

    -Have you hugged a :SSSS: today?

    posted a message on Minecraft, too easy? [poll]
    I think it is the right mix for a large group of ages and play styles.
    I play it for the exploring, mining, and building
    my 12 year old son plays it for hunting and exploring
    my 10 year old son plays it for interaction with the monsters and the different ways to kill or be killed

    we all like playing it but for different reasons and styles

    I have never had a problem with being woke up by mobs; even when I am out exploring and dig a quick hole, drop a bed and sleep out the nite. Just to be safe i do equip my sword.

    posted a message on Aren't Powered Rails sorta useless?
    I like using the powered rail to move my cart up a spiral track, much harder to do with booster set (at least for me)
    now on straight stretches, i'll take a booster to push the distance. but the stopping, holding, and instant launching of the powered rail is great

    posted a message on What is truly the "best" location to set up your house?
    I like to find a nice high cliff with a small lake in front, then dig down and make an entrance through the water, dig up through the cliff and make multiple floors with windows overlooking the lake.
    At least 2 back entrances and a main mine shaft entrance
    trees and animal resources can be gathered from above and around the cliff

    use a button and place a block behind your first track of your starting position, this will propel you from a stopped position
