For some reason, Minecraft won't run on my near stock (RAM upgraded to 2 gigs from 512MB stock, windows vista stock now win7), it says this: (full error report) Bad video card drivers! ----------------------- Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.

I ended up playing a lot of Minecraft on 2b2t over the long weekend. Once you get away from the chaos of the spawn area (and turn off the chat) the server becomes remarkably peaceful. Maybe I'm just travelling a different direction than most, but I've seen very few large builds; although there is still occasional evidence I'm not the first player to pass this way. Although while wandering though the wilderness may be far better than fending off other players, I decided I wanted to settle down, do some farming and some mining. But in order to that, I'd need to find a couple of cows - but mobs seemed to be in short supply. So I continued walking until I finally heard the moo of a cow. No, two cows! Three! And trees! A small pond even. I quickly constructed a simple underground base - hopefully hidden well enough from casual travellers. My herd of cows (needed for leather for books and bookcases for enchanting) slowly grew. I built a a farm around the pond which is producing a bumper crop of sugar cane (again for books) and melons (food for me) along with wheat (for breeding cows). And I dug the shaft down for my mine. I discovered several caverns and a dungeon (and died a couple of times - good thing I slept in my bed). Then I realized I could turn the dungeon spawner into a mob grinder (skeleton in this case). So I did some research, then did some experimentation in creative mode on the PS3. I built a simple drowning trap with a hopper & chest to catch what they drop. But if I stand near the hopper I can also hit them so I gain experience points and potentially additional drops. Easy bones and arrows. Unfortunately, the mineshaft bottomed out into a cluster of caverns and lava lakes. I did find some diamonds so I was able to craft a diamond pickaxe and mine some obsidian for the enchantment table and a pair of nether portals. My "vertically integrated book factory" was going like gangbusters and I'd soon have enough cows to make all of the leather I'd need for bookcases. But after some thought I decided it was time to hit the road again and find a place to build a more well hidden base and hopefully do some serious mining. But first I tried to clear out as much of the old mine as possible, making long and tall tunnels between the lava lakes - finding a few more diamonds in the process. Then the adult cows were slaughtered for leather and steak. Finally I packed up my bed and headed away from my first 2b2t base, proceeding along the axis - no longer directly away from spawn.
I finally took the plunge and bought Minecraft for the PC (after playing many hours on the PS3). An article about 2B2T, an "anarchy" server with a world which is now five years old, intrigued me. The world is littered with stuff players have built up and others have torn down. The central spawn point is a wasteland of blocks floating far over bedrock. Simply not dying of falling or starvation when you start is difficult. And yet, in spite of it's reputation as a lawless environment, it's surprisingly peaceful once you escape the spawn zone. Even in the spawn zone there are oasis where wood and food can be found, left behind by good Samaritans. And none of the other players I've run across has attacked me, in spite of the NSFW chat. (Even the hostile mobs seem placid.) OTOH, any of the chests I have found are empty or only contain the most trivial items. Food is still scarce, although I've been lucky finding a few melon farms which haven't been razed. And in spite of walking close to 9km of game distance, I am still finding frequent evidence of previous players. A couple of notable items I've come across on my journey. First was I stepped through a Nether Portal with the intent of gathering some netherack. But when I stepped back through the portal I found myself in a completely different location, far underground. While some use the nether to more quickly move through the world, I think I will avoid it until I am better prepared. Second was the pair of Mooshroom cows in a normal forest biome. I don't know whether another player lured them there from their Mooshroom island home, or whether they spawned there due to some bug, but I appreciated them and milked them for their mushroom stew. I briefly considered trying to set up camp and farm them, but it was too close to the spawn zone to avoid the griefers who delight in destroying whatever they can find. A shout out to doctrzombie for his YouTube videos which have inspired my 2b2t journey.
