HI EMC comunity,Today i present to you this epic (long) thread giving some tips & tricks for the people who lives in the wild, appart from getting a supporter account and /map hiding.To start with this guide i will just paste a little picture, this is just some buildings (some griefed, some not) i could see at the livemaps, just by zooming out. This was took in less than 5 minutes of checking the livemaps, on servers SMP1 and SMP3Living wild guide:If you are the kind of guy that says this: or Your tips follow:» Travel a bunch.You won't be coming back to town constantly, right? Well, you can always spend maybe 20-50 minutes (or how much you want) travelling trough the Wilderness, in a single direction will get you a nice place where griefers won't go much, well, remember: Griefers are lazy, so the more you travel, the more they will get tired and forget you.» Use the outposts.Well, that gives more randomess to where griefers can go, that gives you 3/4 more chances of being protected, just because they won't just go and travel 1-2 hours at each outpost (North, South, East and West) Remember: Griefers are lazy, more you travel, more they give up. » Make it "secret".Well, if you like more the mining experience, and your shelter will be a bit basic, or maybe just NOT to big: Hide it. Livemaps helps griefers lots, when your not online they can always zoom out and see where you at, so if you follow the first 2 tips you can just make a "mirror" so that they don't find your house/shelter/base or whoever you want to call it so easy.HOW? Simple: Now MC can grow up 256 levels. Make a "forest" that seems natural as your roof, or maybe just as a "cover" of your whole base, use leaves, make a forest design, or just make a huge platform of dirt and fill it of trees, just try to make it natural EDIT: Also try making it on diferent layer levels, so that the 3D view from the livemaps don't trick you around. (thanks Hasorko for the info!)(more info here)» Underground?Well, if you just like the MC experience because of the hunting, mining and not loads because of the building part, you can always make it underground, as low as you want. That way it will be harder for griefers (without xray) to find it.» Stone-Made.Well, if you make it easy for the griefers to GRIEF you, they will laugh more Try using hard-to-break materials, also, wood it's easy to burn, avoid using it (much), also, if you use hard materials it would be harder for a single creeper explosion to blow up your creation. Idk which one it's better for you, i believe any of this will work better than wood » Take a nap! - Teletransporting it's nice Yes, teletransporting it's allowed at EMC, no you can't do /tp tho There are two nice ways to Teletransport to your base and from your base:Sleeping & suicide: No, no need to do both in real life, but if you sleep at your base and then coming back from town you suicide, you will re-spawn at your bed *Nice* *You will loose your items tho :S*Also, if you want to make your walking back to town short: Make a nether portal.Based on this> You will always get a portal *ride* back to town in wilderness 8 times closer than all the blocks you would have to walk back town.»Lock everything.Lock everything and anything that's important for you at your base/house... Simply place a sign on a block on top of the item you want to lock and at the first line write: "lock" *without ""*Follow this for more info: http://empireminecraft.com/guide/locking»Don't make it so easy!Hide your paths, don't just make a straight path to your main 'base' or location.Maybe make different tunnels, use Nether portals and place them randomly, make it hard for them to find a way to your base.
