Map Glitch

I don’t know if it’s a problem with the current 1.2 beta or with the server mod I switched to recently, but these map glitches are kind of fun. It’s a looong way down to the bottom. Thankfully logging out and back into the server is enough to reset it and there’s not actual damage to the map.

By the way, Notch added a screenshot function in beta 1.2, just press F2.

    Almost makes me wish for some sort of x-ray vision to go Dungeon and Lapus Lazuli hunting.

      If you’re interesting in mods there’s at least one I know of that will do that.

        I should probably dig into mods at some point, but it’s been low priority. I should have known there would be something like that already. 😉

        • BrianNo Gravatar says:

          Yup. There’s one that’ll put an overlay on your screen (single player only, I believe) that allows you x-ray vision. There’s others that will give you survey maps for different minerals. It feels a little cheaty to me so I’ve only played with them a little bit, but there’s a wide variety of mods over at

    hehe, yeah those holes in the map confuse the hell out of me. not sure just why they’re happening so often.

    • BrianNo Gravatar says:

      I’m not sure why either, it might be the SimpleServer wrapper I’m using for security. Once the hMod replacement Bukkit becomes available I’ll switch over and give it a try and see. Still, the holes aren’t occuring that often (at least in my experience). I’ve been playing quite a bit on the adventure server the last two weeks and have only seen holes twice.
