The 360 version makes it easy to save before you dick around and then quit-out/quit-to-dash if things go sideways. Not exactly in keeping with the nature of the game but I guess you can always alt+F4 or whatever on PC too. (the new client and server merging might change that a bit though)

The autosave storage box icon indicates that it's saving your inventory rather than the world. That makes total sense in multiplayer for non-hosts but it definitely should have been outlined more clearly. (kinda bullshit really for single-player/local people)

Played the demo Friday and just fell in love with it. I can't wait to get some points so I can pick this up.

Granted I only played the demo of Chime, but how the heck do you get shit on by Chime?

I have been trying to play online today and seem to be encountering a glitch. I will join a friends world and only a small circular area will spawn (Around 150 blocks long), the rest will be blue emptiness and once you fall off the edge you will keep falling until you exit.
Has anyone else had this problem? Ideas on how to fix it?

Now this I can fap to.

That sounds like lag. The last time I saw it it was blackness, you could see through the world, and blocks would disappear/reappear while mining/placing. (PC version mind you and it was some time ago in beta)

Before it froze on me when I forgot to save. I've had it freeze on me twice while saving and it didn't save anything. Sigh. It's ok its one of those games where I don't mind playing from scratch over and over haha.

I've played the demo for about 6 hours (really enjoyed it) and I got points to buy it, but I don't know if I will for a while. I just don't know if it will hold my attention long.

Is there any story mode or anything? Or is it all open sandbox, do what you want, no missions/story, building fun-time?

Well Adventure Updates have been applied to the PC version which brought about things like experience, villages and dungeons but the long-fabled Adventure Mode has yet to see the light of day.

So even the latest snapshot on PC is still a do what you want sandbox without typical game elements/structure like missions and story.

I got lucky; found a couple of sugarcanes across a body of water, but visible from where I initially spawned. I just figured out all the farming stuff yesterday. There's a lot to do in this game.

Thanks. I'm still on the fence. I'll have to see if my brother digs it so we can play together. Or my girlfriend.

I set up this Water/Lava room underground and really liked it, so i decided to set up a Water/Lava mote for around my house. Spent hours landscaping the area, put the water on one side, loved the way it looked. Stared to put lava on the other it was working great, went to get more lava and when i turned around half my house was gone/on fire!:hot:

Speaking of water and lava, what does it take to mine obsidian? I was trying to avoid the remaining lava and couldn't read the text box that popped up. Apparently an iron pickaxe isn't good enough.

It takes 10 seconds to mine with a diamond pickaxe, and about 4 minutes with any other pickaxe

I'm slowly working on building a castle, though not having an exact design in my head means that I'm wasting a lot of materials (stone) that take a while to make in the process of perfecting it. I've got one tower done with another that has to be reworked a bit before it's ready while I'm also working on the bridge between the two. Then I can work on the other two towers, which have a lot of real estate in the way for the courtyard. I'll post pictures once I get the chance.

It's a real dick move that stone is mined into cobblestone unlike most other materials in the game.

Just fire it in your furnace with some coal and you have stone again.

I haven't expanded my house too much yet. I've just been focusing on mining and building up my resources. After finding a nearby cave and digging straight down to the bedrock to do some branch mining, I started putting together my first rail system, starting at my house and finishing in one of the branch tunnels. It's pretty freaking awesome riding that thing all the way down. After finding some gold, I started placing some powered rails in it, but I don't have enough juice to ride it back up to my house yet (incline is pretty steep, haha). It's going to be sick when I get it finished though.

I know how to make stone, but that doesn't mean it's not annoying to make mistakes with it and have to do the same process all over again.

so after you build a house...what else can you do by yourself?

I heard there are treasures and such, but so far all I've done (for 5 hours...) is make a pretty complex house in a mountain.

Never played this game before!

I just had my most productive mining session in this game so far. Found plenty of iron, coal, redstone. Even found some gold, lapis lazuli and diamond.

After some wandering and eventually dining my way back home, I saved and quit. After it said it saved and it was exiting he game, it hard locked my 360. I'll be pissed if it didn't save. I don't even want to turn it back on right now. I'll find out tomorrow.

I did figure out one thing. When exploring a mine, I've stared placing torches only on the right side of the tunnels. That way, if I get lost, I can follow torches back out the way I came.

I don't know how widely known this is, but if you press in the right analog stick, you'll go into stealth mode that will keep you from falling off of edges. So if you're doing elaborate builds and keep falling off, that will be a big help along with letting you hang off of the edge a bit to help expand platforms more easily than you could without using it.

Make it out of sandstone. Not only would that be like 10x cooler looking, you can break it back up with no problem (as you know). But I think a sandstone castle would look pretty damn nice. I restarted my game and got a world with a fair amount of desert and normal areas, and a few big mountains. I had a mountain with an overhang at the top and built my house up there almost entirely with glass. I was thinking of making a pyramid in the valley below next and maybe putting a treasure room in there ;).

This world also had some jack-o-lanterns so those are decorating my house. I wish you could move the cactus and replant them but I think all they are used for is to make green dye.

I have to figure out the planting/harvesting part but I'm nowhere near water and I think you need to plant near that right? I do have some seeds I got from who knows where.

Yeah, what you might want to do is build a mine shaft from the inside of your house (or just outside). Just stair-step it down at 45 degrees until you hit a cavern or just find iron, diamonds, lapis lazuli, etc... That is what I was going to do tonight. My son helped me make a bunch of obsidian and now I need a diamond pickaxe to harvest it.

I was also thinking of doing the lava thing around the side of my house. My son managed to do it in his game tonight without setting anything on fire except a few trees.

Yeah, this is one of those things my son showed me. He is a fountain of knowledge about this game. He has been playing the PC version for a while. Not that this exact mechanic would be in that - but he reads alot about the game too so he knew about it.

This is going to sound stupid, but I'll build my first little house, out of the side of a mountain, and when I go to bed at night, I keep getting attacked by shit. I finally locked myself in a 2x1x2 room with the bed and was able to sleep, but I dont want to continue to have to do that. Any help?

Is there a way to 'combine' a ladder and trapdoor? Like, I want to have a ladder leading onto my roof but I also want to be able to close the hole to keep spiders out. Is there some trick to it or can you just not do this?

I think it has to be all stone (or at least, no dirt).

I'm too far along to make that kind of switch now, though maybe I'll keep that in mind for a future build once I get enough of it. I'm nearly done with the wall between the two towers, so I just need to figure out how far the other two towers will be to start that part of the project. The courtyard should be over this known monster cave, so I'll mine through that once it's all done.

I abandoned my mountain house because it's right above a few monster-spawning caves and it's also at the right height for clouds to pass through that makes it really annoying to do anything there. I also made a supplies trip to my floating house to find out that I left the door open with a creeper running around there. I managed to snipe it from above my house with my bow so it didn't blow it up.

The jack-o-lanterns are far too creepy for me to use. Have you tried putting one on your head?
