This is a thread for everyone to post their goals, hopes, or perhaps dreams when the 31st update comes out and we launch the new server.

Personally, I plan to build a huge fort, either medieval century design or American 19th century (civil war) design. Hopefully we establish settlements quickly so we can get some sort of system going.

I thought of trying to re-create the city I built on the current server but realize now that it's logically and practically not needed / waste of time at the moment.

Afterwards or somewhere in between all this I would like to construct portals to hell and make a foothold there.

How about you guys? :-D

Count me in! A foothold in Hell opens many possibilities. Perhaps a Transit System of some sort.

Lets see, my goals are...
1. Build a house and establish a base of operations.
2. Set up some sort of business. (Perhaps trades of a sort.)
3. Explore the vast world and all of its wonders! (Using corridors of darkness of course :-D)
4. I figure the rest out as I go!

EDIT:
Anyone know/have an idea on how we are to get these portals up and running?

EDIT THE SECOND:
I realized a bit later that I would also like to establish my own country, far across the ocean. :-D

first i would make a house, then a tower, then combine it in a keep/castle.

While doing that i ll make a huge mine.

After that it is about making roads and safehouses.

Technically at the moment it's unsure if we will be able to build our own portals, but there are hints that we will be able to.

Roads will be key, I built the first network on roads on our current server, 4 wide seems to be good.

A quicker form of transportation from settlement to settlement would be a Minecart Transit system that would function like a train...But this would take more time to set up, and if one of the rails gets destroyed that could be catastrophic xD

So in other words, POP goes the mine cart. :-|

If portals become buildable, how do you suppose we would do it? Special stones or maybe a craftable archway?

No minecarts don't work in SMP, and they might not even be fixed with the 31st update but I hope they are!

Not sure honestly...I would go with a craftable archway, maybe 6 blocks high? I think he said that we won't need obsidian at least, thank god because that stuff is such a bitch to mine. One thing that I'm SURE won't happen but would be chaotic is if we open up a portal, that monsters from Hell would flow through to the normal world :X

The thing about portals to Hell reminds me sooo much of when I used to play WoW and the Burning Crusade expansion came out in 2007, both the Alliance and Horde were forced to go into the portal into "Hell" (Draenor for you wow geeks) and establish footholds, reclaim territory and so forth.

I'm a total WoW geek! In fact Draenor (I usually refer to it as Outland) is my all-time favorite place to hang out, quest, and grind. And I totally agree, an invasion from hell (DOOM anyone?) would be downright horrible. Not to mention the crash in property value. :-D

EDIT:
I actually joined the COZ World Minecraft server earlier today. I was disappointed to see I had little privileges in the realm of resource gathering and building. Though I was impressed by the magnificent architecture.

I forgot to ask if you already checked out the server but that has been taken care of now.

Yes, the server isn't white listed, but we have groups of access. Random/new players that join the server cannot build or destroy anything to prevent griefing. Participating with us, getting to know us, will get you rewards. Currently our clan leader is off on a trip in Chicago, not sure if he will be back this weekend or next week.

Getting on teamspeak and hanging out with us, would be tight as well :)

Edit: After checking out the minecraft fourms and pc gamer interview, it appears that the portals will be made out of or partially obsidian. Shit.

I just read. :cry:

Were in Notch's green earth are we going to find Obsidian? Doesn't it require at least a diamond pickaxe to mine effectively? It sounds like getting to Hell isn't going to be quite as easy as I thought.

And dear God the Ghasts... 8-O

EDIT:
I also have a bit of a problem... When I joined the server I proceeded to explore every nook and cranny I could, In an effort to discover possible points of interest to me and others. Unfortunately, I went down into a mine shaft and stupidly jumped off into the darkness. Now I'm stuck...

Is there any way to get back above ground? :oops:

All we need is to find a lava pool, and place water in, to create obsidian. Yeah a diamond pick will get the job done but it takes forever...like 30 seconds?

Type /home

I think that will send you back to spawn. Or you know, get on teamspeak and ask for help.

Does teamspeak require a microphone, because I don't have one and my mother won't let me have one. :cry:

Teamspeak is your best bet, having a mic would be amazing.

Playing on our Servers for all our games. I trust you that our servers are some of the best out there, we take good care of our stuff.

Getting back on topic, I will probably start drawing up some blueprints of my fort. Considering we need obsidian and fire to make portals, that will become one of my priorities to achieve
