So where is the dragon? We should arrange for it together.

I want to fight the dragon...

And... I have a request to put end portals here and there. So that you don't have to ride a track in 15 min all together. I think that one at spawn (if we're going to put one there) and one at Pandora would be the best choices. Myself I don't care about the one at spawn but I'm sure some think there should be one there.

With the new command block teleports, there's definitely no need for one at pandora. You're two button presses away from spawn, rifton, and a whole bunch of other places besides.

The end portal is at spawn because it has to be. In a newly generated world, the strongholds are all relatively close to spawn. It will dump you in the void in the middle of the End otherwise.

Forgot the command blocks.
I don't really know but that makes sense Josephine.

(I don't like command blocks... =( I feel so cheaty even if it kind of isn't... :cry: )

Fuck no. There's too many end portals around as is. There's Monkeys (discovered), mine (undiscovered, surprisingly close to Monkeys as I had no idea his was right there) and Roos's (Based on what he said, I know more or less the general vicinity, but not specific coordinates)

If you can't be bothered to hop a flight to Spawn, you don't deserve to go to The End.

My hidden one within 1000 blocks of 0,0,0 and the one I slapped together at Vahalla (-16000, X, -10000) took me to the same place in The End. For the record.

I'm free in the evenings (EST) on most days.

So, the dragon is surprisingly weak. I think we'll find it somewhat disappointing, to be honest. Especially if we gear up a lot. It'll still be fun though.

On the other hand, if you want to make it harder...

So which actual end portal is it? Monkey's?

I think I will be gone on friday and who knows for how much of next week. I am not too sure of my schedule once I get home from uni. My finals just ended tonight and it would be nice. Would people be okay if we did it tonight, then maybe an admin would spawn a dragon for friday, then after that we just start our farm and settlement in the end?
Edit: it is monkeys portal so we will meet near spawn

Yep. He finally just told people the code. Still took them a bit to realize what he was doing.

I'm about 8 hours ahead of you all... So when it's your time, about 10-12 pm it would be perfect for me (I'd say) since it then should be 6-8 am for me. (my time zone is CET)

But can't we do like someone suggested (don't remember who, just recently). We should spawn the dragon in so some others can kill it to... =/

I don't believe that's possible in Vanilla minecraft. As it is we already have a group of people setting up shop in the End (complete with kitschy Christmas decorations), so respawning the dragon would be... troublesome.

Like JR said.

I showed people where I hid my portal as Monkey's lock was malfunctioning. I hid it in the ever so clever hiding spot of 0, 33, 0.

Quite literally, 34 meters below sea level at 0,0. Like I said, within 1000 meters of 0,0,0.

The design for straight-up TNT cannons is extremely simple. Put a few of them in series or reload just two or three.

He means MC fireworks (not just aerial-detonation TNT), which are the reason 1.4.6 is being released so soon.

Oh, it it? I didn't realize. In any case, that's why 1.4.6 is being released, rather than waiting until 1.5. Fireworks for New Year's Day, that is.

Look, I understand that your answer is correct. It is already released.

Near as I can tell, it was released 7 hours ago.

FUCKING SEVEN GODDAMN FUCKINGSHITTING HOURS A-FUCKING-GO.

Also, seriously, do I have to explain to you again how the server works?... know what, fuck it.. you're getting an addition to your present that no one else is getting, and I'll go ahead and tell you what it is.

It's a book.

Explaining in detail how and why the server is upgraded the way it is upgraded. So whenever a new version is released, before you come here and ask when it can be put on the server, you can instead sit down with your book and read it and learn why it's not on the server yet.

We've stopped monitoring the server since the secret weapon to preventing the end of the world can only be developed in the infinite space of a minecraft server - as the man in the sunglasses stated - allowing us to break through singularity and ensure we have the technology to survive the impending doom.

Aanndd it's in. With transportation to what should be Seyda Neen and back to Pandora/Plains City/Whatever the hell that place is called.

In Plains City/Pandora/Whatever, there is a tunnel that says it leads nowhere, but to somewhere. In there you will find a mushroom. In the mushroom you will find a button. This button takes you to (where I think at least) Seyda Neen should be.

Happy hunting.


(mostly because I was too lazy to build a boat on both sides. Had I been thinking, I'd have built one then just cloned it in MCEdit.)
