Yeah, no problem. I'll be on sometime in the next hour or less, probably for a couple of hours.

As a last resort. We are not planning to wipe the world again. Generally each of our worlds have lasted 1 or 1.5 years. They then get regenerated/replaced because of updates/congestion/wanting something new.

As for caves... just you wait

Im intruiged!! I started building some caves and tunnels in my first world - if i mine a large area im probably keen to fill it up with stairs and walkways and all sorts of passages and stuff

I read in another post you can use water to fill mines or something along that line, but is it ok if your using the water as an aesthetic feature e.g. a couple of waterfalls?!?!

What I'd suggest is that if you plan to build in the land outside the city - but want a backup house for storage or whatnot - grab one of the smaller size plots around the edge of the city. Build a basic house there then venture out.

If you have no plans to ever want to be in the city - by all means just go out and start building where you like

Flowing water is bad for the server due to the lag as it handles the water. For that reason, we have had to make rules about using water in quarry spaces and had to remove the old Myst world (melting glaciers).

Players certainly can use flowing water fountains and waterfalls. We just ask that they consider its contribution to lag. Flooding an entire mine is not a good idea.

Will definitely take this into consideration if i use water at all, does water sources/level water (not moving) affect lag at all?
