So I thought I'd put this here since I very rarely am on minecraft at the same time as Hydra.
Got a problem? Build a bridge and Get Over It... or just use an Ender Pearl!
Last night, a few people and myself had a discussion about the new release of minecraft coming up and the fact that for us to see the benefits of the new features it'll probably be necessary for a new map to be generated.
Now while I am looking forward to being able to use the new features just as much as anybody else ... there was one major concern about a new map that I aired in game chat last night and it seemed many people had the same concern.
That being... quite a few of us have completed really complex and time consuming projects that we would love to be able to bring with us should there be a new map generated.
I suggested that it would be great to be allowed at least one project to be Cut and Pasted to any new map created, if we were to provide coordinates.
There were some suggestions from other people, including that they would love to see a few more that just one project per person be allowed to be carried over or ... there was one idea I really loved being:
If a new map was to be created, re-name the current [World] to something like [Old-World] and have the new map as the main [World].
That way, those of us who want to hang on to our projects, or like me, have been mining for weeks on end to save materials for a major project, can still keep all our efforts on a SMP Server.
If there was a problem of there being too many maps/worlds for the server to handle .. well ummm.. there happen to be two creative worlds ... of which it's mainly only the [Flatworld] that get's used...
Anyway, I won't go into a rant. I just think it would keep quite a few of us really happy if some sort of arrangement could be made.
