I, too, have stayed up much too late; also, it has convinced me to buy. I think Apt is secretly on commision.
HiddenOne. You son of a bitch. You slimy, skulking, low-posting scumbag. You knew it would come to this. Roundabout, maybe. Tortuous, certainly. But here we are, you and me again. I started the train on you so many many hours ago, and now I'm going to finish it. Die HO. Die. This is for last time, and this is for this game too. This is for all the people who died to your backstabbing, treacherous, "I sure don't know what's going on around here" filthy lying, deceitful ways. You son of a bitch. Whatever happens, this is justice. For me, this is justice. Vote HiddenOne Finally, I am at peace.

I haven't actually looked into the Multiplayer aspect of the game but there is one

There are servers you can log on to and I guess you can either play other peoples maps or you do some kind of shared experience thingy (EDIT: I mean experience the world, there is no experience points). As you saw in the water slide video on the other page there was a guy standing in the water that the player sailed past.

I just read on another page that there's talk of implementing some kind of server health? I think this means that the players may become able to fight each other. Which would be interesting if some asshole could move in on your territory, kill you and take over your fortress.

As for the single player aspect of the game. It is self cotained and completely open ended. The world builds new land almost into infinity. I believe there is a limit but the world potentially has a greater surface area than than the surface of Planet earth. The game is HUGE on a planetary scale.

It's just you battling the elements, killing monsters and digging holes in the earth and building what ever your fantasy can make up. It's extremely basic. Ugly yet beautiful in its simplicity. Horribly addictive.

It's pretty damn good isn't it. Have you gotten past Episode 14-15 yet where he begins to skip in the development and you can really see him get creative?

MUHAHAHAHAHA.... I mean... We here at Apt, Aptorian and Apterson do not recognize any affiliation with Minecraft or this Notch person. *cough*

That aside, Notch updates the game every Friday. One of the two updates to the Single Player is a compass that always points to where your spawn point is located. You wont have to get lost in the wilderness ever again.

You're paying through http://www.minecraft.net/ and paypal right, or?

Maybe it just wants to send you a letter of purchase or something. The game it self is a small download, no physical copies are available as far as I recall.

EDIT: Holy Crap just looked at the statistics page on the homepage:

What the blazes is this?! Whilst mining, I kept hearing zombie groans through the walls. Curious, and hoping I'd fall upon a cast cave system with gold and diamonds and what not, I started hacking myself towards the sound. All of the sudden I break through to a room filled with zombies, with this little contraption in the centre of it. Also, the entire floor was made of those greenish you can see at the bottom left. I've trawled through Minepedia, but I'm not really any smarter than before. Any of you have any idea at all?

PS! it's broke now. Apparently hitting it several times with a pick axe destroys the thing.

Edit: Never mind. It's a Mob-Spawner. But I still haven't found out what those greenish blocks are.

Redstone torches are a kind of powersource. I haven't begun experimenting with them yet myself but they work both as a switch and, more importantly, as a second connection if you're trying to make something like a pressure switch open more than one door at a time for example. This is shown in one of the "X's Adventures" videos. I think it is around 18-20 that he shows them.

I'm sure there's some videos of it on Youtube.

I got fucked up by one of those things the first time I met it. I too heard the zombie groans and went searching for it. But I accidentally dropped into a pit and got over whelmed. Tried killing the zombies but more came out and at the time I didn't have much understanding of fighting them with the right equipment. Died a few more times trying to retrieve my stuff (I had iron bars on me, god damn it) and trying to Ninja the treasure chests. In the end I got fed up and I just blocked off the room again. A monument to my failure.

I later learned that you can stop a monster spawner by placing torches around it. I have now adapted the strategy of just rushing the thing and throwing torches every where.

I've never managed to destroy one of them. What kind of pick were you using, an Iron pick? Because my stone picks didn't seem to be useful against it.

I've considered trying to dump a bucket of Lava on one just to see the effect.

I've only ever seen those stones near a monster spawner I think they are just there for effect.

I'm working on a tower too, which I am planning to turn into a lava beacon, if I can figure out a way to get enough Lava up there. It started out as a stone wall around my first house and just grew and grew. Now it is a sky scraper of cobblestone. I wonder when I will hit the ceiling.

I think you will only realise how scary that is if you've played the game and encountered lava. This is nightmare fuel right here.

I hate lava because if you die by falling in or something, all your items get incinerated too.

Making some good progress on the Apt Tower today. I still building up the pillars, I've passed the cloud layer but still haven't reached the ceiling. I'm also building a 5x5 deep and wide moat around the tower to keep the mobs at bay when I come outside.

Nice tower, Apt...I want to see it when it's finished! :D

(Mine's build right up to the ceiling, so you'll run out of room fairly quickly now you've passed the clouds.)

That looks very cool and some how alien in design. I like it. From a distance it looks like it is constructed out of gravel.

My own tower has reached the top now. I'm am planning to convert it into a Lava Beacon, with the lava running down from each of the four towers. But I've heard that lava no longer has a "spring block" like water does or that it behaves differently, so I'm going to have to do some experimenting before I begin converting the tower and implementing glass and the like.

But first I have to fill my moat.

The moat turned out to be a real pain in the ass.

In the start it was easy enough all though I had to move a lot of dirt and import a ton of stone to get the moat hollowed out and lined with pretty stone.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUU... The springs are not filling up the bottom no matter how many I place. While I found out that it worked nicely as a monster trap, it's not going to make me happy.

Okay, preparing rocket surgery on the moat with dirt bricks. I quit the game for some hours in frustration over the silly water mechanics when this idea hit me.

Using the dirt as a roof I attached the spring blocks to the dirt keeping them in place. I found out I had to place a sping block on every surface area otherwise there would be gaps or holes in the moat.
