    They should have named this game Minecrack, it is ridiculous how addictive it is. Simple game, but I can't stop playing it! I am up till 2am every night, starting to miss races, all so I can break just ooooone mooooore block...

    Anyone else dealing with Minecraft addiction?

    A friend of mine was building himself a lair, but hasn't mentioned it in a while, so I guess he's clean :D

    Never bought it, played around with the demo a bit, and watched a 12-13 part youtube gameplay video. And that Enterprise built to scale. Sick. :eek:

    Oh wow, that is crazy! I can't imagine how many hours it took just to dig that pit, let alone create the Enterprise to scale.

    I am just getting started, so working on switches and circuits and minecart boosters and stuff.

    I had a play of it a few weeks ago out of curiosity. The control layout means that I can't play it properly with my nerve injury and all, but it is very fun for such a simple-looking game.

    I play it quite a bit on a multiplayer server. I enjoy it. Makes a nice relaxing change from FPS or racing games.

    Just came off the server I play on after someone's treehouse got a little hot....

    OMG Its amazingly addictive :D I just love destroying bits of land and allowing water through places so much fun to flood caves - simple things for simple minds and all that :p.

    I flooded a cave by accident last night, I was digging into a wall and sploosh! Here comes a waterfall. I had tapped into a large underground lake.

    I also set myself on fire last night. Note to self: build a bucket, fill with water.

    lol Aaron, it seems one should be careful about both water and fire at Minecraft.

    We must setup a RD server :)

    I've played this game some time ago, is very simple and "pixeled" :tongue: but is really really cool and original, you can create anything!

    Omer, I leaned the hard way how close you can get to lava before it lights you on fire :)

    An RD server sounds cool, I would play it.

    Here is a funny video of a guy showing you how not to build a fireplace:

    I make my shelters out of stone, But thats nothing that a pickaxe can't take care of. I have not played online, but it sounds like anyone creations are fair game for griefing?
