Modders create Minecraft Central Lobby System for you to explore

Minecraft Central Lobby System

By on January 14, 2013 at 2:13 pm

Every day, Minecraft seems to creep a little bit closer to being a full-on MMO, and the announcement of this new Central Lobby System from dedicated modders HighlifeTTU and lazertester takes this a step further: creating a full 3-D lobby/server browser that allows you to wander around and explore while choosing which server to join.

The whole setup includes a relaxation lounge as well as zoned-off PVP brawling areas, with hundreds and hundreds of players wandering the hallways, reading server descriptions, jumping in and out of them through portals, chatting with each other and swimming in pools.

As you may have guessed, the mod itself is basically a tiny Minecraft world which then connects to other worlds, but the way it works is apparently very intuitive and helps to bind people together into a greater community. It’s currently only available in the US, but the team plan to expand it to Australia and Europe too.

That’s actually pretty cool, it’s very impressive what people are doing and have done with Minecraft!
