    posted a message on Didn't know mobs could pick up weapons
    I was killed by a zombie pigman and it picked up my enchanted diamond sword.

    I didn't realize they could even pick up weapons, so i put on iron armor and came back to fight it.

    It murdered me with my sword, then picked up and put on my armor!

    I went and got a bow and managed to kill it.

    However, I didn't know mobs could pick up weapons and armor. Is this common knowledge or part of the new patch?

    posted a message on Looking for a simple but elusive seed
    There are probably tons of seeds like this but they are too simple to garner attention and get posted.

    I simply want a grassland biome that is on a coast. The coast must be an ocean or a bay that leads to an ocean.

    And it must be a coast, not an island.

    This grassland coast must be at the spawn (visible at least).

    Why I created this server,

    I'll keep this short.

    I have searched very thoroughly over the past week for a decent vanilla server where I can enjoy minecraft the way I did back in the old vanilla server days. I have been through every 'anarchy' and 'vanilla' server advertised in the forums, and found that none of them provide a true vanilla playstyle.

    Here are the problems I encountered:
    • Non-persistent worlds - The server owners are known for server wipes, changes, and other activities that discourage anyone from enjoying a permanent presence on their server.
    • "Pay to win" anarchy - Servers that sell permanent armor and tools or offer other advantages to those willing to pay.
    • Item-spawning - Server operators abuse their item-spawning abilities to provide advantages for themselves and their friends.
    • Mods - Although these are somewhat acceptable on 99% vanilla servers, many of the mods completely ruined the continuity of the game. These included spawn area portals and other add-ins. Some 'Vanilla' servers are modified so terribly that it is clear they are only using the 'Vanilla' tag to attract players.
    Because I could not find a single server that is truly an anarchy, vanilla, persistent server, I was forced to create my own.

    Essentially, this server will provide players to provide the opportunity to enjoy minecraft in the single-player fashion, but with the multiplayer element that will allow them to engage in conflicts and friendships if they desire. There are no map limits, so it is completely possible to wander far away and play in isolation for as long as you desire.

    The spawn area will no doubt be a very chaotic, violent place, so tread carefully until you are far away enough to create a bed. If you're lucky, you will find friends who will help you get established.

    I hope this will recapture that feeling from when minecraft was in development. You would wander a lonely world, and explore amazing wilderness - but you would always wonder 'am I really alone'?

    Hey folks. I've been out for a while and some of my friends have been monitoring the server on and off. I have a list of you guys that I will be giving /kick /ban and /save-all powers as soon as possible.

    I apologize for the delay. The main reason is that bukkit has not yet been released on a stable updated version. That will allow us the permissions and anti-hack capabilities that are needed.

    I'm working on employing craftbukkit beta 1.4.2 R0.2 right now. It was just released.

    One last thought. Bukkit is INDEED a mod... which sucks, but since we are still not ready to whitelist due to low player amounts, we need access to bukkit's global ban list. For the majority of players, they will never notice that the server is not a true vanilla server. The only people who will experience the plugins are the hackers :).

    Okay the new server type starts in island survival. If you hate islands, keep moving and you will find continents, biomes, everything.

    Unfortunately, a group of individuals thought it would be fun to hack the server. They created some clock generator type devices that have crashed some chunks near the spawn. We can fix the server but it's going to require a 'wipe'.

    Fortunately, this server is only a week old. This will be our first and ONLY wipe. It was not made for fickle reasons. Without having worldedit and other editors up-to-date, there is no way to fix the affected chunks.

    The upside is that the map will be updated to the new 1.4.2 patch, so we are less likely to have this issue in the future.

    The philosophy of this server is still that there should never be wipes, ever, for any reason. This one is only occuring because there is no other choice.

    Hope everyone is having a good time. My philosophy is that the players make the server and decide how a server should be - not the owner. Who knows what we will see as the server grows and evolves? I'm excited to find out. Maybe a peaceful civilization will crop up in one part of the map, or perhaps there will be some cool battles. I hope people come on here and post their stories and pics.
