Let's play legos online

Instead of doing homework, I have been hopelessly addicted to this. Each person is a little lego guy and you build stuff out of lego bricks.

Here is what it looks like

Actually, if you look closely, you'll see that those are Blocko brand blocks.

I made my own little windowed room after your server died. Screenshots here: http://otto.homedns.org:8888/blockland

I like the last message that shows up in the final screen shot . . . "Otto dies."

Actually, that message is in the third shot on. I fell really fast while getting the 2nd shot and died when I didn't hit the jetpack in time.

There's a lot of mods floating around for this and some seriously impressive screenshots at **************. Minor problem with the game is that it's too easy to modify, and there's little in the way of protection so some of the public servers are basically crap, with morons shooting weapons all over the place (even though they don't do anything to you) and making gigantic characters, and even painting you and changing your character's colors which is quite annoying.

So while I think that something cool will eventually come from this, right now it's very beta, definitely a mess in the public, and also a bit slow. It needs some real work. But for private games with passwords, it's probably fine. The ************** people have put out some mods to add voting and banning and such to eliminate the more annoying crowds, as well as stuff to let you remove support blocks (thus letting structures float without any support) and some other useful things.

I got bored a while ago and wrote some scripts to let me easily build stairs and bridges and such (one command, nice and easy), so it's pretty malleable like that.

this is pretty cool... I'll have to try it on my desktop rather than my laptop.

I set up a yellow brick road from the desk to out the window


Which extends down the side of the house


The stairs take you to the choice of either the roof or the building with weapons


The weapon factory


Please don't bomb us, we don't make weapons


Then I decided to box up the lamp


From the Channel 10 News chopper



I'm starting the server up again, and this time the weapons can destroy blocks. Same server name and password from the first post if anyone is interested.
