    Hey. I know that this is probably impossible, but seeing as you now have put a new vehicle into multiplayer, would it be possible to have multiplayer vehicles. i.e. A plane with a driver and gunner.

    Also, helicopters would be pretty sick. Just saying.

    Thank you for the mod, and keep up the great work

    ^Exactly this. I love the planes, best mod I have ever seen, keep up the good work. I know you probably have been dedicating yourself a lot to the planes, but it would be awesome if you could add a helicopter prototype in the next update (very simple, like the biplane).

    Inventory (The Planes) needs a slot for "License".... that way I can control who is and isn't allowed to fly planes on my SMP Server. :biggrin.gif:

    Great Mod mate, love it.


    I completely approve of this, however the license thing is retarded. Not sure if this is possible, but just give the admins the option to choose who has the permission or not to fly.

    As a former member of obsidian empire (see page 8&9) This server is not as it appears. While it claims to be an active server, with a very active user base and a fair active Admin team.

    This is most emphatically NOT true. Scaarj is an incompetent Admin, and was almost never on. And as he was the sole person who had any actual "say" in what happened, NO ONE could legitimately build something. Not to mention the obscene (2 weeks) server down time.

    Scaarj even pissed off the other admins, making 3 of them decide to leave, and lead a revolution and start their own server. These 3 admins also brought 75% of the active community on Obsidian with them as we all saw Scaarj as an incompetent and useless leader/admin.

    Keep your eyes out For a new server coming out in the next couple of months, as it will be everything Obsidian empire COULDN'T be. A welcoming server that is stable and has a working economy along with quests, wars, and freebuild.

    I leave you with this as a keyword to find your way to us when the time is right. Framework.


    This statement annoyed me somewhat.

    First off. We play the game to enjoy it. Which I am enjoying it. We get to build almost what we want within reason.

    This is completely untrue. Every morning when i wake up He is always on no mater what. Every evening I always see him on. Just because he is Australian and don't see him as much during the day doesnt mean he doesnt do anything. He's constantly checking and reading our own forums. He constantly posts up about the news. He constantly talks to every member on the server. He pretty much lets you build what you want (aslong as its nothing stupid, looks good). For example I have gone a bit wild building the medieval district, buy putting rainbows in lots of random buildings in there. It just that if it is a bad idea, he will let you know it is, or offer any suggestions to improve it. He sorts out all the server admin. Install mods on the server. Resolves any problems. He runs every and makes sure everything goes smoothly. in which it does.

    The downtime was no ones fault. Every server had it due to the update of bukkit. And it wasnt two weeks, more like a few days. And we could get on the server, but couldnt do much as it was vanilla. At the moment our server is VERY stable. Very few downtimes, and not laggy at all.

    He pissed of Nathan, because he wanted to much which is impossible. Nathan was being arrogant. You was getting power mad. He thought he owned the server and could tell anyone what to do. They wanted full server access (which they didnt even pay for) And too much was going on at this time. You expected to much. I havnt heard any news on your server at the moment, and its been over a month. Not much seems to be happening on it.

    The server split was more like 50%-50%. It was just the most of the people who left were active on ventrillo. Which is how you mostly got your point across. ATM we currently have 4-8 people on the server at any one time, and more during the active parts of the day.

    Its a game. Why so serious ?


    Awesome luke. Couldn't have said it any better.

    This clan gathers people from all around the world, from Europe, North America, Australia and even South America! Because of obvious reason, not everyone is online at the same time and that's what happens with scaarj. He is a great admin and an awesome guy, but he lives in Australia, that is, GMT +10, so of course some people won't see him that often.

    In the clan forums, we have 91 people registered, and we get new applicants every week. This is a very friendly server (I have been here since the second quarter of January), but it has rules. They are not absurd rules, just basic rules, the problem is that they weren't Nathan's rules.

    You know what is interesting Kard? You didn't mention how Nathan left this server. He griefed the whole server. Lots of things had to be re-built, including our awesome castle. And you know what's the best part of it? The castle was Luke's idea and he was overseeing the whole thing, and his birthday was the day Nathan ****ed **** up, so this was his amazing gift for Luke.

    I am pretty sure Nathan will be a great leader on his own.

    Perhaps hitting a tree while holding a sword will create a block of rubber liquid in front of it, which can be refined in a furnace into 6x rubber chunk?


    I like this.

    posted a message on Rubber (not another generic thread)
    Before you say "search bar", read this thread. It is about how to get rubber. In this main post I will not talk about the uses for it, but if you like it, fell free to mention this thread in other threads.

    Hevea brasiliensis

    What the hell is this?
    Simply, the tree used to extract latex. (Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hevea_brasiliensis)

    How to extract it?
    I am not sure yet. If we get a dagger or something like it, it could be used to notch the tree and after a while, a rubber block would appear. This is just and idea, if you get better ones, please post them here.

    Short and simple. Please, tell me what you think.

    Good idea, but how big would it be 1 or 2 blocks? Also how do you make the wheels?
    :iapprove:


    I am not sure yet. This is just an idea, so I want to see if people like it. I'd say at least, but most likely, 2 blocks big. About the wheels, I am also not sure. Other elements would have to be implemented to make them, I think.

    BTW I made this thinking about a 3x3 crafting grid. It would look much better if the crafting grid was expanded.

    EDIT: About the wheels, I just had this idea: Hevea brasiliensis. What the hell is this? Well, there is a wikipedia article about it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hevea_brasiliensis), but long story short, latex is extracted from these trees.

    Notch has recently added 2 new tree types, so I am sure he could add another one, but with more uses than just getting wood.

    sorry, but I dont think it is a very good idea... there is electricity, ok, but further it is a game with not very much technology tools in it, it's about mining, crafting and building.... So I don't think this is a good part for the game...

    p.s. sorry for my bad English... :smile.gif:


    I have to disagree. You wouldn't be forced to use this, only the ones who like it would use it. You can keep MC Vanilla if you want to, but you are being extremely close minded.

    The game is about a man that uses the resources of the world around him so he can make his life better. So why would he have to be stuck in the Middle Age? I am not saying that we should be able to go to Space, of course there is a limit. However, the Gyrocopter and the concept of flying machines is so simple that Da Vinci designed a helicopter in 1493.

    So I still don't see the problem.

    This isn't too far ahead. Also, I am not saying this should be implemented ASAP, I just think this could be a nice future addition.

    i thnk its nice idea.i think though that it should have some form of defence though,maybe you'se arrows as ammo for a little cannon like thing?(i thnk it would be unfair to just be flying,and have a group of skeles take you down no contest.)


    Yes, I thought about this too, but the idea of a flying vehicle, simple like this, already doesn't please a lot of people. If this thread lives (and hopefully it will), I will see if more people suggest this, If yes, I'll add it to the main post.

    posted a message on Gyrocopters
    Well, I have been playing some Warcraft lately and I started to think about Gyrocopters. After doing some research on wikipedia, I think they would be a nice addition to MC.

    What is a Gyrocopter IRL?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autogyro

    As you can see, it is a very simple and light vehicle. In MC, it shouldn't go too high (I don't know, maybe about 7-8 blocks above the ground at the highest height possible. This way it would be able to climb mountains, hills etc., however it would still be in range of the skeletons arrows.)

    How to craft one: (Use your imagination, I am sure you can see it. Look at a RL one and compare)
    :|: :|: :|: <---Rotor
    :_: :Furnace: :|: <---Propeller
    :Black: [] :Black:

    KEY:
    :Black: = Wheels
    :_: = Pilot seat

    But it FLIES! It doesn't match the theme of my Minecraft!
    Well, if you have looked at the pictures of Gyrocopters IRL, you can see they are extremely simple (in fact, there are only 3 primary flight controls. I have never piloted one, but it doesn't sound that hard). So I don't see the problem with it.

    But there are no ways to counter it!
    Well, as I have said earlier, it is extremely light. So it shouldn't take a lot of arrows to take it down (maybe 4 or 5). Also, I think it is very likely Notch adds some kind of flying mob.

    What about the fuel? As you can see, it uses a furnace as the engine (at least in this prototype). So it would use currently available power sources, such as coal or wood. Also, on the pilot's seat should be a "fuel bar", which displays how longer you can keep flying until you have to refuel it.

    Fine, but it would go, like, thunder-fast, right?
    Nope, not really. Maybe it could give you a 1.5x or a 2x speed boost. The Gyrocopter would be quite similar to the boat: gets you to place faster, but it quite fragile. But it flies

    So, what do you think? With these characteristics, I don't think it would be OP and just imagine flying around your map, looking at the sun going down and laughing at the night mobs appearing down there, until you run out of fuel, crash and a creeper comes to you to check if you are alright.
