I remember there was some kind of badass subway system on the f13 Minecraft server.  There isn't any way to soup up those horizontal elevators, is there?   DRILLING AND MANLINESS
The B&N took advantage of the nether being 8x smaller to speed up travel. Pop into the nether, travel 1000 blocks, pop back to overworld and you traveled 8000 blocks.

You want major engineering shit to appear overnight, recruit Bzalthek  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Crap. I built some neat subway systems in Minecraft (like pull a lever and have a car from your destination replace the car you are taking there -- yes I know there are more *clever* ways to do it but I liked to keep my engineering kinda real-world possible-ish) but never thought of running it through the nether.

I would say that the lack of any means to build circuits and machines will mean that interest in Conan Exiles will wane soon, but then you never know what modders might come up with.

I'd love to build a rail line from the volcano to the desert...

I downloaded Exiles when the server was spun up but haven't felt any urge to actually launch it or ask for deets.  DRILLING AND WOMANLINESS

I'd settle for ziplines.  

I set up my latest house on a cliff overlooking the river right across from the NPC village I'm practicing my thrall-taking on, with an overhanging balcony, so that I can do a high dive into the river rather than having to waste precious seconds running down to the beach.  Being able to build tall towers that use gravity in more interesting ways to facilitate fast travel would be nice.

One of those jungle obelisks is hard as fuck to find even with a map because it's literally on a 3-tiered fucking cliff. There are some interesting base spots - the "basement base" underneath one of the beach temples was interesting.

All your attribute points and feats are reset thanks to fixing an exploit and your mods are likely to be broken. ENJOY PATCH DAY!

The two I was using on my private server were Pickup + (pick up crafted items like walls and crafting stations and move them) and LT's Minimap and Compass (self-explanatory). I had to disable them with the patch though.

This is really a good argument over modding private servers at all. Unless we have the ability to deliberately freeze the server's patch level until the mod authors can catch up then this happens every major (and many minor) patch.

But that said there is a builder's mod that adds things like mason line and cheap scaffolding that I thought looked cool...

Is this still actively being played by you knuckleheads?  And is the server still going?

ETA:  Got this game a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had time to sink my teeth in yet.

Some folks are still playing more regularly than others. Server is still up.

I am going to be back yo fucking around on this heavily in early November most likely. Have some thing I have to deal with once I get back from London which will limit my play games time until then.

I should get back in. I just totally lost my desire for a while after I did all the content and realized how clueless the devs were re: the longer-term plan.

Yeah, I stopped when I realised I was just playing Minecraft again and, frankly, a not very fun one.

So many survival build simulators.  So few games.

Anybody else having problems finding the server? I think it's been two nights (around 1:00 AM Eastern) that I've gotten impatient waiting for Bat Country to show up (yes, I've got it Favorited) and just closed the window and played something else...

Looks like attention might be waning. As I'm still enjoying puttering around in the environment I'll ask ahead of time if, in the event of the inevitable eventual server shutdown, does our host provide the capability to download and backup the world? As in I would like a copy to mount locally and continue to putter around in.

I had a bad experience with this sort of thing the first Minecraft multiplayer world I played in. I got lucky in that my first experience was with a bunch of people who were seriously creative. There were entire cities built, linked with subways and overhead rail systems and some truly interesting architecture on display. It wasn't just min/maxed functional, it was visually attractive and fun to walk through and see what everybody was working on.

Unfortunately the guy who started the server got bored first, "forgot" to pay the monthly fees, and also forgot to locally store the backup.

I think we can download it yeah. Here's the thing. Server is paid for for a year and the only replacement possibility was Fallout 76. Sooooooo.
