    Hey Slim.

    Were on beta now, Mixcraft seems to be the texture pack of choice, though there is always the classsic one your using :)
    That bug whole is a chunk bug, its a known bug in the current build - the developer of Minecraft still can't get things right.

    I'll tell you one thing though, you got a lot to catch up in, in the server :) The mainland has been deserted :( :(

    To change you're character skin please go here. Tons a skins just find one you like and hit the button on the right with a up arrow. The Skindex - Minecraft Skins It will then ask you to login, do so then all done! ;)

    Theres tons of texture packs as well. I'm not a fan of this Mixcraft, however Snook and I both have a pre-built jars (for the texture packs) in dropbox. He likes Mixcraft, I like this one.

    Should you desire either just ask or look here for more

    Today I've spent some time preparing my Mac OS X patch as a new Minecraft update will soon come. When it does you just use this OS X patch option 7. If the patch has been released yet it will download it and make it available for playing via option 1. However I'm not certain if the Minecraft update will break online play or not yet. As for now if it does, you must use the patch option 2 to connect to the Digiex server.

    Those of you who are using Mac OS X can now download that patch here. It is very simple to use, just extract from the zip and run the Minecraft file. It will do the rest for you. You may also place that file anywhere you wish!

    Quick Update: I just added also uninstall and texture pack / mod support. To use the mod / texture pack support you must have a minecraft.jar file with the mod / texture pack applied. Thats very simple to do / get. Then you need to place those minecraft.jar files in /Library/Application Support/minecraft/patch_install/mods/ *THEY MUST* be named to go with the script.

    Such as, if i had a modified Minecraft.jar with a HD texture pack which was beta version 1.1_02 then I would rename it to minecraft.beta.jar and make sure its placed within the mods folder.

    If its an alpha mod / texture it must be named minecraft.alpha.jar

    if its a newer beta version (higher than 1.1_02) then rename it to minecraft.beta.new.jar

    This is allow you to load up those fancy texture pack mods / map mods while using this patch.

    Those of you who don't know how to rename a file in mac you can do it from terminal will this command

    mv "/DRAG/YOURE/FILE/IN/TO/GET/LOCATION/minecraft.jar" "/DRAG/YOURE/FILE/IN/TO/GET/LOCATION/minecraft.beta.jar"

    Should you need more help use my signature below! ;)

    I'm having problems with minecraft updating the patch's minecraft.jar to the latest version. Could my installing a client mod with that jar be the issue?

    I know that's what I meant by "the patch's jar". I did that. But, then, running the patch, the game updated. Its done this a couple times now,

    It is down yes and I can't connect via vnc to fix it. So we'll have to wait just a few more hours till he wakes up.

    Sorry, were really not having much luck with Minecraft Server at the moment

    The server is slow most of the time, due to people trying to join via the latest version which multiplayer is broken in. This causes the server to lock up and get bogged down, with incorrect data and whatnot.

    Then we have the problem with Minecraft forcing useless updates on clients, which is breaking the patch and causing even more people to connect with wrong versions not relaizing it, then connecting over and over wondering why its dead

    Then we've had the past week of Minecraft.net being down most of the time, which means people cannot join.

    Then recently the server player validator was down, but clients worked, which meant people could open the client, but the server could never validate there licenses.

    Combined with now, Bukkit being delayed to copyright reasons so it looks like our server is gonna stay on an old version for even longer.

    And finally, my ISP is having issues and I work full time, so I cant react to problems straight away.

    Overall, not a good time in Minecraft Land. We've gone from a full server with over 15+ people at any one time, to a mostly dead server with the ocassional 3-5 players.

    Notch is too busy with his millions, to realize hes destroying the community of the game. Perhaps he should use all his money to retire, and let someone who can code finish the game off. Hes great for the idea, but his handleing of the game now and his inability to keep to any promises like "I wont force updates" "I dont have DRM, yet you have to be online and my useless server to be working, to then play in other peoples servers" is killing the players.

    End of rant.
