    As an idea for the portal room...

    Don't just survive in the Nether, Tame it!.
    Find a suitable cavern/arch bit and block off all "entrances" (like 200 blocks big) with glass until the volume is enclosed. To keep ghasts out, place glass blocks in every 5x5x5 chunk. Now terraform it! Replace red dirt with grass and plant trees (no red dirt, no spawning pigmen?). Doing this to a large volume would be incredible, with just metres away on the other side of the glass, ghasts and hordes of zombie pigmen roam.

    Doing this to every safehouse would be impossible, but it would be an awesome place for the main portal.



    Well what if the ghasts start bombing the glass sections. They shoot from a far, not exactly sure of it's range though.
    They'll just bust it to useless shattered disappearing thingy.

    Here's something I did on Google Sketchup will we wait for the project.

    A simple structure enclosing the portal so we don't get bombed by the ghasts :Skeleton: :tnt: .

    In the pictures the structure is 6 x 12 x 51, inside it's 4 x 10 x 51.
    Can be made of Obsidian :obsidian: or cobble :cobblestone: (recently found that ghasts can't punch though these)
    Even Bricks :brick: can use to.

    I know that its long because I took in account on the number of personals that would be taking shelter + equipment that are gona be placed.
    The entrance at both sides need to be built depending the convenience + efficiency.
    The structure can be modified for better looks once the area is secure.

    Well that it discuss, criticize.


    snips


    It might take long. And it looks a bit too big for a simple safehouse, but we really should do something special for the portal room.

    But it looks good enough to try.



    the size of the structure can be decreased to 5 x 10 x 25. requires 650 blocks.

    LoL I calculated the number of blocks on my original design. 1632 0.o too much

    Turtle maybe you should have the server down until Jon (the host if I remember) gets his whitelist going or change the IP and then inform it once it is ready.


    yay no portal for smp /sarcasm (probably a bad one at that)

    Really Turtle saying that I didn't build it legit. If you want I can try giving you my world1 save for you to see. Although I need to find a way to upload it first. But Thank You for accepting me.

    Now the question is how are you informing the IP to us?

    Also I know you said that you're bound to misspell names. So just to make sure it's all lower case " lonewander ".

    I will see you and the rest of the fellas in sever.

    In-Game name: lonewander

    Position: Primary - Builder
    Secondary - Guard / Collector

    Playing Since: For about 1 month or more

    Why I should be a [Builder]: Might not be the best of the best, but played enough to be confident to build something big for the first time. Plus I like to work with blueprints so I don't get confused while constructing.

    Why I should be a [Guard / Collector]: I have very decent accuracy but that will depend when we start shooting at ghasts. As for collection I always look for efficiency.

    Comments: I'm very flexible with positions. If I am rejected for build, please consider the other two positions.
    Oh and please excuse my pics I'm not used to posting pics much.

    hey turtle

    I've been watching your forum for some time, that is before I joined the forum.
    I was wondering what happened to the Spongebob project the server was doing?

    Also I see that you guys been having lots of issues lately, especially the recent diamond incident.
    To me 33 is a lot, well do your best investigating it.

    Plus is there any chance I can try the your server with other players? Only played in single but never thought of going to SMP yet.
