It seems my grinder is being hindered by the presence of anyone else on the map. So if someone is 20k blocks away, it still completely decimates the spawn rates.
Edit: I just realized that I have a treasurechest plugin that could very well be conflicting with the HG plugin.

I think the Occupy protests illustrated a reason why a mass protest in America is unlikely. The Occupy movement had its heart in the right place, but it got too fractured. Everyone was protesting something different, and their voices drowned each other out. Granted, all protests might get fractured, but there's usually an overarching
Reason and a sort of narrative to the protests, which I'm not sure Occupy had.
There are lots of Americans who legitimately think we sorted everything out then and there is no reason to revolt ever again. The American Revolution was against dumb Brits; a revolt against the American government is treason and displays a lack of faith in our infallible American democracy.
Really though, an example would be this anti-immigration rhetoric I hear all the time. 'We sorted out our problems when we revolted, so these Mexicans are cowards and should just have their own revolution instead of stealing our jobs [even though they have had several revolts, lol]'.
I only bring this up as an example of America's views on protests. It's seen as something everyone else has to do, not America, which kind of goes along with the Steinbeck example earlier, as Americans feel they are part of an equal system and as individuals they just need to 'work harder'; we are all just embarrassed millionaires.
Although one of the above posts brings up a good point. There are protests in America, just not mass protests.
Turkey, Brazil, Bulgaria this year. Spain, Greece last year. Arab Spring before that. London chav riots.
Meanwhile Americans are being spied on. Everyone complains, but generally don't seem to give off the message that they really care.
Kids are going to university and coming out with debt with little chance of acquiring wealth. Meanwhile, the rich get richer. Middle class is being eroded.
Health care, well, I won't even go there. It's been discussed here to death.
Debt is off the roof.
Wealth distribution is pretty uneven.
Jay-Z's new album is really average.
Unemployment is high.
I somehow get the feeling the Americans always try to push the blame on Obama, or the republicans, or the democrats, or this guy, or Lil Wayne. I also think American patriotism makes it seem Unamerican for them to criticize their own country/government. For example, the media portrays the gun law issue, or the gay marriage issue, which Americans seem to have very polarizing beliefs in, and the bigger and more important picture is missed. Steinbeck was also quoted saying that Americans never see themselves as poor, but rather, as temporary embarrassed millionaires, ergo rejecting any socialist ideas which may actually be beneficial for them. In a nutshell, it's difficult to believe you need to change when everyone tells you you're the best. But regardless, I don't wanna turn this into a gun law or gay marriage thread, but rather their readiness to protest.
Of course, the 99% movement was useless in the long run.
Then again, they said Brazilians are too interested in football/soccer to do anything about their politics. Then they raised the public transportation prices by 10%, one thing lead to another, and everyone lost their shit over there and they've had enough. So why can't it happen in the US?
I wish I was there when any of their future kids found this picture
Alright, everybody listen up, I am stick and tired of seeing so many imbeciles talk about the NSA "violating their rights" by keeping track of metadata from phone calls.
First off, why are any of you surprised? We have more than enough data storage space to keep records of every U.S. Citizens positions on a half hour basis for an entire year and then some. You're shocked to hear that metadata is being collected, but why wasn't anyone this surprised when they released texts (anonymously) from people in the NYC area after 9/11??? Do you really think there isn't a collection out there of your emails, phone calls, and transactions too?
Second of all, what is so bad about a confidential list of information from the past? Ever heard of a bank statement? Is M&T violating my rights too? No, it's a record. I would actually be very concerned for any company that doesn't keep track of their phone lines or digital transfers too. It is there for the sake of displaying a history of phone calls. Whether or not you want to use it to see your calls, or whether the government wants to view it to see where you've been, just like they do with indoor, outdoor, and traffic video cameras EVERY SINGLE DAY, is nobodies business.
Third, the NSA is not being intrusive in your life in any way. They are not oppressing you, they are not targeting you, they are not conspiring against you, they are not inhibiting your ability to use a phone, they are not speaking to you and best of all, they're not even censoring you. So why is everyone losing their shit over the NSA?
Finally, we live in an age where we cannot afford to live without cyber security. If you don't want the government keeping tabs on cyber communications, then you're really saying you're the kind of person who's okay with the Chinese hacking and stealing millions of dollars worth of technical economic details, and sensitive information. You're okay with a world where an anonymous group of juvenile amateur hackers can harass children and force people into hiding, crash bank websites, and distort personal emails.
I'm highly conservative, and I don't like big government, but let's be honest, if the government isn't censoring you, inhibiting your freedom of speech, intruding, violating, or oppressing you, then the least they should be able to do is keep a ****ing record of information and use it to cease serious domestic and international terrorist threats.
long hair usually enhances the fact that the holder of said long hair has unappealing facial features.
Greenie_777's stance is the only one I agree with because there's a probability that I actually worked with him doing the same SIGINT missions
It's a lesser of two evils. No one gives a flying **** about your dumb family stories, or the affairs you have in your marriage, or that you text your pot dealer.............unless any of these things directly shows you being in contact with an Enemy of the State.
& its allocation of time man. you have to find all the cows, find the reed, grow it, chop all the wood. It's doing that initial investment and then being able to time when to do runs for all of the things and then making bookcases. they are expensive.
just, less over-thinking more doing. we could do a hxc map friday night to monday night or something. & at the end of the day its pretty much Hanta Yo minecraft so whatever he wants rly.
Adam, what you're proposing sounds like little more than a mining competition.
I thought about also awarding points for like, number of cows or pigs or sheep owned, stuff like that, but that's probably just an invitation to lagf*ck the server.
Bookcases would deffo be something to measure wealth.
But as Nathac says if we start getting into this it'll all go complicated as ****.
Dying last is pretty cool, but how are you gonna ensure someone's not gonna sit in their house doing **** all all day...
So the server is close to being completely dead as fuck. What do you guys think would be fun to do? Adventure maps? Maybe even switching over to a lighter form of FTB with a large focus on the really nice things like thaumcraft and whatever provides the twilight forest and autumn forests. We could have power/electricity mods, just not sure which are good. If you don't want to play FTB, you can just play normal MC as I'd keep Svenland up so all the ores would most likely be fine... provided that it would actually still work with mods like that.
We could do another hardcore map. One life only, no revives. Maybe the last man standing after 2 or 3 days and if more than one person is left alive we decide the winner based on riches. So the most diamond, gold, lapis, iron. Assign point values like 10 for diamond 8 for gold since if you're mining properly (at y12) then they're fairly equal in terms of rareness. Iron would maybe be like 6 or 7 points per block. Stone could count, too. Glowstone would also be valuable as it provides incentive for people to do risky stuff.
He left you a comment on May 10th so lies.
his profile says he's in Jenks which isn't in one of the counties that the storm took a sledgehammer to. was he going to school somewhere else?
