Hi all - Since we are planning to collaborate on this map, I was thinking we might want to have a thread to communicate happenings, discuss goals, and progress.
I jumped on for a little while this morning (US Eastern time) to check it out. I "crooked" the leaves, chopped down the trees and re-planted. I hung out until two of the trees grew, then got kicked for being idle. I didn't want to do too much without the rest of the gang. I did put the wood, saplings and silkworms in the chests as I gathered them.
I'm not trying to lead or crowd us into a corner with rules and agreements, but it might be worth considering how we'll proceed. In early game for the most part it's going to be about growing trees, expanding the platform, getting more dirt, getting water, and moving toward a cobble generator.
For the platform, do we want to expand in a circle? In cardinal directions? My builds tend to be more utilitarian so would probably follow someone else's lead here. Do we want to build on lower half slabs to keep mobs from spawning?
As far as goals, do we plan on trying to achieve the goals in the book or ones we create in our own community?
As far as playing time, I will be more active in the US evening times. Feel free to add your thoughts / questions / pictures, etc. Looking forward to playing more as a team on this map!
Waiting for trees to grow is like watching paint dry...
