Anything that isn't Star Control. Mind your manners!

Here's a sneak peek of some things to expect in the 1.8 adventure update.
Hmm, doesnt seem like a lot is changing in the gameplay experience. We'll see how it turns out ;).
Angelfish, your suggestions sound reasonable. We'll see how it goes.
Thanks.

Anyway, how about some in character story for the SC minecraft server?

For example:
An earthling cruiser, when on a deep-space exploration mission, has crashed on a foreign planet. Its crew (of which you are one) is sent to explore the surrounding environment. Over time, it's discovered that the planet contains some valuable precursor artefacts, and (when the server admin deems it worthy) a portal is discovered which can teleport you to another planet.
Players can create their skins accordingly so they're dressed as star control crew. Perhaps some pixel artist can assist us with a basic Star Control Crew skin?

I was kind of thinking along those same lines. Perhaps we are the scientific mission to Vela in 2135 from the opening in SC2? I don't want to be tasked with building a complete underground city though.

That would be a huge pain if you weren't using something like WorldEdit, and even then it would take a lot of work. Although if you stuck to straight shafts and spherical volumes being excavated it would probably be okay.

Apparently someone already created a star control related skin, the Arilou!

That's pretty cool!

Sombody showed me this mc skin editor called "Skincraft".

I've messed around with it but haven't created anything spectacular yet.

If someone can come up with an Androsynth skin it would be cool to use that. Especially if we were going for a theme of some sort. After all, it would explain why everybody looks identical.

If you have the right tools {skinEdit Alpha 3}, creating a good looking skin is no real hassle. Here is my fictitious "General Klinganite" in MineCraft form, as an example.

Hackers never die. They just terminate and stay resident.

Thanks for the link. Androsynth seems like it would be realitivley easy to do. So would any SC humanoid race for that matter as long as you have an iota of artistic skill.

I'm currently using the "Tron Creeper" from http://minecraft-skins.com/:

1.8 is due tomorrow, supposedly ;).
When can we expect the Star Control server?
I'm sorry if I seem a bit impatient, but the server I used to play on is a bit empty right now and changing maps every other day ;).
