I managed to log in last night for the first time, and I'm afraid that the first thing that struck me is the severe lag. I don't know if it was connection lag, since I am in the US, or server lag, but I suspect the latter since it seemed to take an hour for each day/night cycle. It took about 3-4 tries to mine each block. Is this usual for the server, or was last night particularly bad?
Also, I can't seem to load the maps that were linked in an earlier post. Am I doing something wrong or did last week's render not work?
I wandered around for a bit trying to find a nice location to set up a base, and I did find a nice candidate. It is a volcanic/forest/snow and ice mountain island to the S of spawn. I didn't see any signs of occupation except for a few pillars of smoothstone (as well as a couple of horizontal bars of smoothstone on the side of the hill. No lights that I could find. Does anyone know if someone else has their eye on this island, or can I claim a portion of it. If so, I will light it up a bit, once I get more torches together.
