    FAQ: (Please read if you have a question, are confused, or if you and thinking don't go together! ;) )


    Q:Does making a dirt roof count as completing challenge one?
    A:Yes!

    Q:Is ore naturally generated?
    A:Yes a lot is!

    Q:Is the the labyrinth the caves of dirtydishdog the same thing?
    A:No the caves are a whole other area devoted to revealing more about dirtydishdog (My Buddy)

    Q:Is the small room with netherrack all around it the nether cave?
    A:What do you think? (The answer is yes.....)

    Q:Is the way out of the wall,making a tower or ladder to get over it?
    A:No a very hard to find entrance was made. Most of your probably wont find it!

    Q:I'm playing this on SMP and the chest only has one set. Can i spawn another?
    A:Refer to rule 2

    Q:Does the redstone wire thing really give you goodies?
    A:I dont want to give to much away, but yes look around the area youll find it.... ;)

    Q:I cant for the life of me find natures refuge.
    A:HINT: It is underground connected to a ravine. It has fern right outside it.

    Q:Why do i have to make a cobblestone generator, when theres stone everywere?
    A:It forces you to go find lava.

    Q:I cant find the cave of creators.
    A:The cave of creators is the most guarded secret in the map.(Cause it has the most amazing treasure ever!) I only say that it is near water.

    Q:Will a sequel be coming?
    A:YES! But sadly Dirtydishdog's laptop broke so progress is at a snail's pace.

    Q:What does the sign saying salvation lies below supposed to mean?
    A:It means there some helpful stuff below. (But all ominous like. Lol)

    Q:Why hasn't my video been uploaded to the page yet?
    A:I have stuff to do. I dont sit on my computer all day. <_<

    Q:DO THE CHALLENGES NEED TO BE DONE IN ORDER?
    A:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


    Q:Can I break blocks?
    A:I wont even answer that question.... <_<

    Q:The story doesn't make any sense.
    A:Then don't play it. What do you want me to do about it?! <_<

    Q:Who is Dirtydishdog?
    A:He's my pal, who helped me make the make. :D

    Q:Is the terrain custom made?
    A:I used Minecraft to generate a normal map, I then proceeded to find an area i like. I used Mcedit to create the mountains, Parts of Crater caves, and other various areas around the map. Some caves were custom made by hand or with TNT. So i would say about %50 is custom. Some might say well it looks like normal minecraft terrain.... I made it look like normal terrain Minecraft generates so it would seem more realistic.

    Q:Do the chests im finding at discoverable locations count as hidden chests?
    A:No

    Q:Is the Nether pregenerated?
    A:No, I have not accessed the Nether there so idk what youll end up with.

    posted a message on Minecraft Multithread / Multicore CPU Support (Will Lead to Huge FPS Boosts)
    Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Multithread / Multicore Support Topic. With this topic I want to rally support for this idea and hopefully get it implemented into true Minecraft.

    Minecraft is a very CPU intensive game but currently Minecraft will only use a single core of your processor, whether you have a 6-Core I7 Extreme or a single core AMD sempron. This is a complete waste of resources and support should be implemented to balance the load on computers (Especially Laptops). Support for this would lead to major boosts in FPS, even for those who have dated Dual-Core processors.

    I already know that a mod exists for this. (Its called Optifine. You can find it here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/249637-11-optifine-hd-d4-fps-boost-hd-textures-aa-af/ ) But I would like to get official support rather than mod support.

    So if you support this and would like it to be implemented make your voice heard and do something. This could be leaving a like to this post or simply leaving a comment saying I support.

    Happy Minecrafting! :biggrin.gif:
