before anyone asks
IT IS NOT RELATED TO WoW OR ANY OTHER WIDELY KNOWN RPG

Minecraft - House/tower being built | Timelapse

minecraft is a sandbox game where you can build anything
it has several game modes such as survival, survival multiplayer and creative mode

survival and survival multiplayer are on an infdev map that randomly generates the map as you move and you need to mine/dig/cut ore or rocks/dirt or sand/wood to make tools, buildings and furniture , creative mode is on a flat map with infinite resources avaliable to build anything, the video is in creative mode

and it is one of the very few games i can play (if u watch the vid u can see why xD)

example of randomly generated awesome terrain:

gotta love TNT:


castle or a massive building being built:


infdev terrain generating + awesome stuff built:


multiplayer group pic (^^,):


types of terrain it'll generate: oceans, flat, hills, cliffs, mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls, islands, lakes, rivers, caves, dungeons

the price is atm about 15 bucks (but its SO worth it) and it'll increase as the beta updates, when released it'll be about 20 eur

http://www.minecraft.net/prepurchase.jsp

Here's what you get:

You never have to pay again!
You get all future versions of the game, including all expansions and addons.
You help fund the development of Minecraft
Custom skins in multiplayer
Once you've bought the game, it's yours. No DRM.
Survival mode!

Planned expansions:

Zombie Siege
Build your defenses during the day, fend off the incoming masses during night.
Capture the Flag
Defend your base and flag against the enemy team while trying to steal their flag.
Various custom level mods
Want to import a doom map? How about playing in a random dungeon?
And more!

i'm currently playing it on a friend's account because im broke but im quite sure i will buy it after my bday

I got a server running, after you make a minecraft account, http://www.minecraft.net/play.jsp?server=8c07763afdbfc26e95d6263e031ae4de

the main level dosent have much, but if you type /goto lops it goes to the  generated level me and burke were tinkering with. If you cannot use /goto lops ill have to look at the permissions or give you guys ops or something.

I'm content with classic, but I do have a singleplayer alpha release that only works offline.

what me and my friend made on SMP (survival multiplayer)

hours of growing and sculpting threes to build a bridge u can walk inside between 2 bases (more treebases to come)


tree 2 1st floor


tree 1 entrance to the mine (goes down from the middle of the trunk)


tree 1 2nd half-floor


tree 2 2nd floor


currently built: 4 treebases, 2 bridges (3rd one 33% ready) main tree height.... well... REALLY high (room for 2 more floors)
main tree has accessible rooftop with a great view

to be done: finish 3rd bridge, create walls of trees, extend to other large trees in the forest via treebridges/walls as seen in 1st image

currently marked trees to be made into buildings: 4 (more trees actually but 4 places that have large trees grown into each other
