I recorded the final episode of season three last night – went to the End and slew the dragon (that’s a boss fight to be proud of Notch – even with a whole bunch of EE/IC2 power items, it took a good 5 minutes to kill him…)
I’m now working towards season four. I’ve got my server running v1.2.3 vanilla (it’s whitelist and I’m not going to give out slots to, please don’t ask. My #minecraftchums know how to get hold of me for the address), and my client(s) are running v1.2.3 with newest modloader and MLMP, and thanks to being mostly vanilla, I’ve run MCPatcher and will use Vattic’s Faithful texture pack for the season, assuming that the EE textures for Vattic’s are updated to v6 sometime.
The world is in place, I just need to move the spawn point to a nearby NCP village I’ve found, and set up a few signs (rules, can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em) and starter resources for the other players, then find a nice plot of land far enough away that I can record season four with a decent starting area and without running into anyone’s mine workings once I get the EE mining toys – huge mine workings will feature in season four.
As for getting season four under way, I’m just waiting for MC Forge to release a v1.2.3 version (and LexManos is hard at work on that, looking at their Jenkins), and then EE will be the last piece of the puzzle. Only waiting on two things is oddly relaxing, strangely enough…
