The spawn point is said to change to the last bed you slept in. Until you break the bed in which case the original spawn point is restored. The compass will always point to the same position no matter what, though.

Much work done on the place. Much expanded! I built a connected greenhouse to farm cacti, sugar cane, and wheat. I'll eventually expand the whole area into a nice beach front...though it would look better on an actual beach than a lake. That was my spawn point so I just built around it. It started as a simple hut and then I just kept expanding it. I plan on putting a deck on the outside with stairs which connects to the second floor.







Second floor, still pretty bare right now (deck will connect to the window on the left):

Interestingly, that comes with the game.
Oh, cool!
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Time for a little update on my game.
Took some time to work on my castle and builded 2 towers on it.
The towers are not high, but I will make them higher in the future as they need a point on top of them.
I still need to know what kind of picture I should place on the ceiling as it is 18 squares (max 24 square)





Still need to extend the back of the keep though as only the front part has been extended (on one side)
Even took the time to mine for more cubblestone and made a new spawnkiller that doesn't work as well as the one I already had made.

A wip lighthouse I'm making for my outpost a little ways away from my home base. This is taking an unbelievable amount of stone. I'm going to replace some of the cobble blocks near the bottom with moss cobble to give it a really weathered look. I'll probably use lava for the actual lighthouse light and surround it in glass.

Hmm, last time I checked lava wasn't the best light source.

What? Lava gives off quite a bit of light! I could use Lightstone if I ever find enough diamond to craft armour, weapons, and tools so I can mine enough obsidian to go to the Nether and retrieve it. I've seen lava-lighthouses in action, though, and they're not that bad.

In other news, check this out. We just got the update to Beta 1.4 last week and already we're getting the Beta 1.5 update as early as next week! Here's a video Mojang uploaded of all the crap load of new features they're putting in like weather and achievements.

All the new stuff looks awesome. It may take me a while to find a pig saddle so I can ride a pig off a cliff though. I've mined several thousand blocks of cobblestone, and explored dozens of cave systems, without finding a dungeon.

Also, MI and DM, you may find this useful: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Light#Light-emitting_blocks

Ugh I switched ISP's and am now having a really difficult time getting my port forwarding to work properly.  It'll be good for like 15 minutes and then will inexplicably curl up and die.  As cool as it would be, I'm not going to pay someone else to host a server for me so I'll keep messing with this until I figure it out.

I'm also a moderator at the server I play at. :3

I spent hours and hours trying to figure out how to make an XOR logic gate with redstone for a door to be controller by two switches. One switch was to be next to the door and the other quite a ways away hidden at the bottom of the hill it was on. Finally figured it all out. Restone is TOUGH. But satisfying once you succeed. Lots of underground wiring and repeater use was required.

Yep totaly.
I'll be a long time buzy making a new minecart track. New system is required to keep the cart moving.

Just got into it myself.  I haven't made anything to special yet.   Although I am making an island tower and it occurred to me that it reminded me the wizard's tower from MOE.

Now I'm considering how much effort it would take to make Daventry, with everything being blocky as all get out it seems like it wouldn't be too hard to replicate an AGI feel to it.
