Truth be told, I don't know whether you can portal the dragon, but given the additions in FTB, anything is possible.

my experience previously is that it is un-TOG-like (and thus an offence) to knowingly use an exploit. (And to me a bug this OP is clearly an exploit.)
What we consider in minecraft to be an exploit is more things like when there have been bugs that allowed players to duplicate items or something like that. An item freely available in the game to everyone - even if it's a mistake for it to be like that, is not an exploit in the same fashion.

But.... to add another spanner in the works....

Bazz tried to make some rubber boots today - and they don't work like they used to - so it seems they have been fixed. So basically they are now not worth making.

The ones he crafted today will wear out when you're taking damage. So while they will give you a bit extra health, they are not impervious to damage any more.

I got MiniObsi to log on and try to make some, to see if it was updating the launcher that changed them (her launcher hasn't ever been updated) - the ones she made are likewise nerfed. So it would seem that anyone trying to make boots now, will have nerfed ones. So it must be something updated on the server.


Which has the additional problem of what do we do now. Because if some people's rubber boots are the original overpowered ones, and new players can't make them like that - then yes, that is unfair advantage.

So we might have to require all players to hand in any of the old boots, so that nobody has the old impervious boots?

And I gather you want holes in everyone's homes, hey Bazz, as the dragon goes for a stroll ?

Fair enough Sor. And I was thinking Mystcraft portals because you can make them any size, shape or orientation (vertical/horizontal). Especially with the maintain momentum option on the link modifier this allows for some pretty crafty traps.

Another possible use would be as a protective moat laid horizontally around important buildings in the overworld. Pursuing mobs would fall through and be teleported, say to a dungeon under your base, fall to their deaths and leave loot for you to collect (insert elaborate loot collection system with water flow and an obsidian pipe. All with no damage to your building. Coupled with a jet pack (or pro jumping skills) could make for a cool defensive base design. No idea what load on the server Myst portals have though.

It has the distinct look of a planned city... like New York... as opposed to the cowpaths of more "organic" cities. Love it!

I can just add in that myst portals definitely does not keep a chunk loaded. When I had my delivery system link through the myst world I had to portal over there myself constantly to keep the carts flowing. Same with my lava pump in the nether, it won't do anything unless I'm actually there, despite a myst portal being right next to it.

So do you guys update the server from time to time or how can this happen? Does it get automatically updated on the daily restart?
