    After being dissatisfied with Whatpulse image update frequencies (free account), I actually went ahead and coded my own, much simpler version to keep track of keystroke counts only. You can actually see this in my signature. It generates the image on the fly and will update every X keystrokes (it's configurable!).

    It can display up to (but not necessarily limited to) three lines of text, and every option is well-documented.

    posted a message on HOW TO: Set Up a Minecraft Server
    I realize this is quite a bump, but is there an updated tutorial on how to do this anywhere? I am using minecraft_server.exe off the downloads page.

    Directional markers would serve the purpose, but wouldn't it be much easier to simply place a breadcrumb item on the ground? No need to mess with direction, getting in and out would be so much simpler.

    You're forgetting I'm new to this game, haven't found any redstone yet.

    That Blue ****'s CAVES?!

    Even with String that'd be hell.


    The green stuff is also his cave system

    Ropes for climbing or keeping track of where you've been? Both would be good.

    Maybe a compromise, you can repair tools for fewer resources if they're on a workbench, but more expensive on the go?

    But what if the cave's really wide? That isn't helpful then. You'd be stuck with a mostly dark cave.

    I wouldn't mind being able to repair my tools instead of having to re-make them every time. Maybe it would even be possible to fortify them on the go, when you're nowhere near a workbench?

    That's my problem, I explored the whole cave system and put torches everywhere I went.

    I think Minecraft really needs a way to leave a "breadcrumb trail", or a piece of string, or something that is very very very easily obtainable (perhaps even an infinite amount?) so it's harder to get completely lost inside a very complex cave system. It would probably be best if it was a "non-solid" block type, and could contrast nicely with every other block so you could tell where it was placed.

    I know you could use signs, redstone dust, or even minecart tracks to achieve the same effect, but what about something that is much easier to get? I wandered into a cave yesterday and could not find my way out. I managed to figure my way out today using cobblestone drops, but that's a very inefficient system and took me a long time.

    Perhaps the "breadcrumb" or "string" item, assuming it's an infinite amount, can also be "cleared" with one button?

    I'm really new to Minecraft, thanks Notch for making such an awesome game!
