    My video card died today. Those pictures remind me a bit of what it looks like now with all the artifacting and only displaying limited colours.

    haha it's really not that bad

    you have all sorts of different coloured blocks

    and you make stuff
    in a multiplayer environment

    there's also a modded client that lets you fly/run fast too.

    Shit yeah, first-person lego! Anyone else playing the Alpha version? I love the offline client. Here's a dodgy guide to a town me and a mate made... we really should update that.

    I'm gonna go right ahead and copy the OP from SomethingAwful (I do this a lot) as its the most informative thing I can do.

    I'll have to fix all the pic links tomorrow as I'm just about to walk out the door for the night.

    Everybody should play this game, the developer is a legend and is adding content every friday (for the most part)

    Also, MP survival is on its way so I'd love to play with some OCAU people when that takes off.

    I'm going to work on a new OP for the game over the next few days. The current one does not represent the game in its current state (well, maybe creative servers but thats only a tiny part of the game)

    Honestly, everybody should buy this game right now. You will not regret it.

    'Tis a bit hard to properly screenshot mine (points for thinking things through, eh?) because I tend to just add bits on when the whim takes me so it's all over the shop.

    Here's my save, anyway (for the alpha client).

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SJSYFYD3

    To use it, if you don't know, (on 7) go to C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves, extract my file and name it as an unused world number.

    Look for exposed stone, eventually you should find some iron just sitting on the surface for ya. Then make an iron pick and go to town.

    yeh i finally found some iron ore, funny because I found that red rock stuff before i found any iron ore, just kept digging downwards until I hit the end of the world.

    Been looking at peoples creations, some of the stuff people have created. It's insane.
