    You can do both. I strip mine to gather materials for my big construction projects, but take a break exploring a cave system every time I find one.

    That might work; maybe I'll give that approach a shot.

    I do that too, I have found 2 caves underground just digging around in areas, and once I do I explore it as I gather materials from it,

    So there is one change to the new Minecraft, at least it exists in the current snapshots, anyway, that I do NOT like, and that is apparently even when in single player mode, you're still running a server. This has created single-player lag! UGH! So annoying to have delayed sounds, delayed block response to your pick actions, among other things. I'm annoyed enough with Diablo 3's single player lag, but now Minecraft? Nooooo!! I only play single player (at this point) so this is very disappointing to me.

    I did some research, and apparently it's been around since Snapshot 12w18a

    In the long run it makes more sense to do it that way. Now they can focus on just MP and improve the experience for everyone.

    Yeah from a developer standpoint it would seem to make much more sense. But I'm not privvy to their architecture and whatnot, just a .NET dev.

    I should get into this game again and see what's changed, and try out some mods which I've not done before. Probably won't even recognize it (I think the last I played was 1.0.0? And that was only for a few days or something) now, haha.

    Nothing new if you've been playing with tech mods for a while. ;)

    I was thinking of updating my server to run tekkit lite or FTB. Wasn't really sure which was best.

    Use FTB. The mod authors don't really like tekkit.

    I'm not going to base my decision on what I run for a private server on what a mod dev likes. I just want a solid experience for my friends. If there are technical reasons or better mod choices in FTB I'll use it, but honestly right now I'm leaning to tekkit lite.

    I'm kind of disappointed that these mods can't run Bukkit anymore. I'm sure there will be a lot of plugin replacements for the new system but still, it's not going to be as good as bukkit. On the plus side, it does look like they are updating quicker to the latest mc version.

    Ugh, i just can't get into it anymore. I think if I had a server of mature people it could be fun to just build some crazy things

    We are leaning to FTB now after a lot of testing, we want to go with as few mods as possible and FTB seems a little better put together with it's launcher.

    What new system or mod don't work with bukkit anymore? All of my servers are running bukkit with 1.4.7 without any issues, granted I'm only running essentials, borderguard, dynmap, remote toolkit and a few other minor plugins, but I haven't heard anyone complaining of issues with any of them.

    --Oh nvm, I see the discussion was about tekkit and ftb. I don't have either of those running.

    It seems like even more of a massive mod compared to something like Tekkit Lite or the new Voltz.

    We have actually decided to just build our own 'pack' for use on our server. There were mods we wanted not in FTB and mods we didn't want that FTB provided. Right now we are at about 17 mods.
