It sucks anyway. The sound of raining and the duration of it is irritating.

Snow looks pretty cool, however.

I've just gone on my single player for probably the first proper time since the 1.5 update and I found rain once I broke to the surface from my underground tunnel.

Just started a public server on the free version. It's pretty empty, but I like the empty levels better than the ones that are already full of stuff and have obnoxious rules.

Nevermind, it seems Verizon is a shit company and I can't forward my ports (whatever that means) without manually adding every IP address that I want to forward them to. So I think that means before somebody could join my game, I would have to have their IP address, and then modify my router to let them in. I dunno, but it sucks ass.

A couple of friends and I created some sort of underwater dome for a subway station. I think it looks pretty nifty.

No, it's a regular map. We actually had to go and make the sea floor lower because it was too shallow, that took a while.

But that's boring. Who wants to frequently go on a server with nowhere interesting to explore and no natural building opportunities? We built this as a station for our subway that connects different parts of the land, not to just go 'ooh' and 'ah', it has an actual purpose.

Agreed also an amazing build. I notice theres a tree in the middle did you guys place a sprout and allow it to grow or did you give yourselves the bark and leaves? None the less pretty damn cool, it must of been a bitch because I know building underwater is time consuming.

At first we tried to plant one and let it grow, but it always ended up looking bad. So we just gave up and made the tree by giving ourselves bark and leaves.

Thanks, I think this may be one of my best builds so far. It did get a bit annoying during some parts, but I think it was worth it. We actually used gravel and filled in a 51 x 51 square in the water, and then dug out the center and had a huge dry spot to work in. After we created the dome we took down the outer walls and filled it all in with water again.

Damn that's smart I didn't even think about it that way, makes me want to attempt an underwater build. Keep posting things like that, they make my mouth water with envy.

And curious does anyone have any tips on navigating out of a cave. I keep starting new games because I'll find myself in a huge cave and anytime I want to leave I'll always get confused and lost and it just makes me not wanna play. I guess that's what it would be like in a real cave.

Place a small trail of torches behind you kinda like bread crumbs.

If I get really lost, I try to track my steps back as far as possible then build a staircase up to the surface.

I use minecart tracks like a man.

Actually sometimes when I get really lost I just use mcedit and relocate my character.

See that works fine only for small caves. When I say large caves I'm talking about caves that have multiple paths that branch off into even more paths and have different "floors". Like literally the one I'm in now is just a mind fuck.

This seems like a good idea although I've attempted similar things (digging my way to the surface) and have been met with time consuming failure.

I've thought about using tracks as a way but I usually don't have a whole lot of silver, at least in these recent games.

When I get lost I use to use LOLEditor but I'm trying to break away from that because I keep cheating and it kind of takes away the fun. (For instance I tend to switch God-Mode on which gives you over 3,000 hearts or I'll give myself all the good tools and such).

But thanks for the ideas, maybe I'll just surround myself with TNT and just end it like a man.

A simple way to get out is build a 1x1 tower, mine upwards, build tower more, then hit the surface.

I did that earlier to build a tunnel into the ground in the middle of a lake. I like building glass tunnels straight down, it's cool looking. This one actually had a purpose though.

After we created the dome we took down the outer walls and filled it all in with water again.

It would be pretty cool if you could make like a bubble of water. I don't know how to explain it. Kinda like this:

I'd hate this mod because I play mostly for the resource collecting , then building aspect. I don't want my shit destroyed.

I've noticed that too. Where my house is, is under a big natural arch so relatively dark. I've got torches all around my house and there are always sheep, cows and chickens bouncing around.
