Quote fromI think it should be like a continent, stitched together with tons of huge maps. With the 'edges' being vast oceans, that if you go out too far, you get eaten.
Also guys, 1 huge map is only about 1Mb. Having 1000 Huge maps would only consume a little over a gigabyte. I have 500 gigabytes on my hard drive a lone, which didn't even cost 100 dollars.
You guys have no faith in Notch, he's done so much with this game. If he's thinks he can pull it off and create a functioning game, I believe in him.
Well, with speed and fly/noclip hacks an undetected player could potentially start causing problems. The good news is that "Thwart Hacking" is at the top of Notch's To Do list.

Only when you're not near them, and if you're growing something, just stick around and mine some resources in that general area for awhile. Crop growth doesn't take THAT long.
