For modding, I will suggest simply wait for Minecraft to have some form of mod API before going into modding. That is the next thing they will go into...

Anyway, Minecraft server should be up. fillydelphia.com [ IP 76.73.5.117 ] please test it out!

Weird. The spawn point is totally right in the middle of an ocean.

Now that the server is up and running, it'd be nice if the spawn was in a room without water, and if there was a safe way to the surface. That could probably be built easily. Also, I'd like to be placed in the creative mode/team if it's okay

So with the help of Iona and Moon_Star, we built a nice little spawn platform to stop you from spawning in the ocean... however, because I am downright stupid, I managed to start the platform, in the wrong spot.

Anyway, here is a map_0 of the server, for your convenience.

As you can see, the spawn point, is right in the middle of a large body of water. Not really that convenient.
You can also just see the spawn platform there, that little grey box under the player arrows in the centre.

Either we:
A) Fix the platform, by completely rebuilding it, (which really isn't that hard, just tedious), and then build some sort of very large bridge, towards some actual land, or
B) Regenerate the map, and hope that this one isn't water, water and more water.

Also, if anypony cares, here is the spawn platform.

We can just regenerate it if ponies prefers! Still, nice work already!

It took a couple of hours, but I made a house near the platform, used as an "Expressway" to the Mainland. It's made of Bedrock and takes people all the way to the mainland of course. Well, most of it is bedrock, there is some stone, but it should be good for using now. I figured it'd be much better than just swimming.

Ok, so we don't need to redo the map I take it? just leave it as is?

Right, we'll keep it as it is. I've talked with Armads, Sapphire, and Marl (only people on the server at the time) They all said they like it the way it is. Also, Sapphire already found diamonds.

I'm putting the coordinates for the places I know of here, as well as simple directions to follow, to help people find their way around when they first get in. Press F3 in full screen mode to see coordinates (the 'Y' is height, so not really useful for basic location.)

For directions, we're using the basic 'Sun/moon rises in the east and sets in the west' mechanic.

Fillydelphia Spawnpoint and Moon Star Expressway Entrance
These are obviously right at the first spawn point, and nearly impossible to miss. Take Moon's bedrock tunnel to the mainland, but don't try knocking out any of the walls. We don't need the thing flooding, right? Also, be careful on the spawnpoint. I went along and added more torches, but when I went back to examine it at night, there was a creeper and a zombie that had spawned on it.
X: 0 Z: 0

Moon Star Expressway Exit #1, and The Beginner's Outpost
Just outside the Expressway is a small, cobblestone structure, with a chest and crafting table.The chest contains several survival kits, each composed of an iron pickaxe, an iron sword, and ten torches, and all were created legitimately, so no worry about that for you hardcore Survivalists. They will be periodically replenished, but if you want to fill it back up yourself, that'd be fantastic, too.
X:-205 Z:-25

Moon Star Expressway Exit #2
Branching off from the original tunnel, this exit takes you right up to the E.E.L. safe from the zombies and creepers prowling the above-ground at night.
X:60 Z:-395

Equestrian Explorers' League (Sapphire's Base - activity hub)
Residents: Sapphire, Iona, Moon Star (?), Shinula (?), possibly others
Head due north from the Expressway Exit, and before long you should see several structures, including Sapphire's Lighthouse looming above the rest. There are plenty of nice places here to hole up, grab some free cake, and maybe do a bit of mining.
X:60 Z:-470

Marl and Moonshade's cabin thing
Residents: Marl, Moonshade, some chickens
Head west from the E.E.L., and you'll soon come across a wooden bridge lit with torches. Follow that across the water, and a wood cabin with a wheat farm out front will be readily apparent. It's always open, and the supplies in the chests are free for those who need them, but please don't let the chickens out. They're a real bother to get back in.
X:-360 Z:-510

Tek's Island House
Residents: Tek, Kite (?), Shinula (?)
From the northwest (upper left) corner of the spawn point, you should just be able to see the lights of a small structure across the water. You can either take the Tunnel to land and follow the coast along to the west until you reach it, or you could take the more direct route and dive into the sea for a quick swim. Not sure how Tek runs the place, so until he says otherwise, stick with a 'look but don't touch' policy.
X:-185 Z:-105

Lotta/Kyrth/TheMiles' idyllic animal farm
Residents: TheMiles (?), lots of animals
This farm sits just north of the E.E.L. I don't know much about their policies, but according to the signs, you're more than welcome to feed the animals, and possibly even slaughter them if you need to, as long as you leave two of each for reproductive purposes. Just make sure you're respectful.
X:15 Z:-630

Lightning Flicker's Shrine of Smooze
Just west of E.E.L. and clearly visible by the lava spout, "The shrine offers protection during the dark nights and fancy lightning during the day. You should also give all your eggs to the shrine of Smooze or else you will be waking up covered in baking soda for no reason." I know I'm going to be dropping lots of eggs when I visit.
X:185 Z:-465

Skyrunner Sanctuary
Residents: Oni
Northeast of E.E.L., follow the mine cart tracks to get to Oni's impressive glass and stone home. You can't miss the giant cross perched on top.
X:130 Z:-535

NPC Village
Residents: NPCs. Duh.
Quaint little village. Houses are safe enough at night, but the streets... not so much.
X: -1140 Z: -517

Blackgate Asylum
I don't know man, thing's creepy.
-185 -410

I'll add other locations to this post as they're found/created, so we have a centralized place to see them. Please let me know if you want your place included/excluded, along with any other pertinent details, and I'll put it on the list.

Sapphire's little village was named Equestrian Explorers League (E.E.L.), and I think some ponies called this world Fillytopia.

Alright, the list of locations has gotten a fairly large overhaul, so check it out a few posts up if you haven't already, and let me know if there's anything I missed or messed up.

So.
Where's my statue?

And I took some screencaps last night Mayday (a majority of them were pertaining to my own incompetence) So I'll put them up when I get home.

A mysterious castle has appeared! Who knows what fun lies inside? Where is it? You'll have to find it.

Also, will be updating the highway periodically for the next few days. New branches will lead from the MoonStar Expressway to the E.E.L. base, which can essentially serve as a starting point for everypony. Another branch will eventually lead to the recently discovered NPC village.

Note: the expressway is not the most direct way anyplace. But it is the safest. Routes are chosen based on terrain and avoiding natural pits, lava and such. They also have safehouses for long journeys so you have someplace to hide at night.

I'm with you updating, I'll even try to help! Just note that it's a VERY annoying thing to do.

EDIT: I'm working on it now, that way you can finish your cool castle. I hope my judgement is enough at least for where it should start/end.

EDIT 2: It's usable now. Hollowed out and added bedrock walls where it used to be empty. Please don't punch out any walls, I'll try to make bedrock walls, ceiling, and floor when I have time. Thanks to Sapphire for the suggestion!

EDIT 3: Oh and yeah, I found the npc village ^_^

Ok it should be updated to 1.1 now.

Edit: I heard report that pony mod does not work with 1.1. For now, there isn't much we can do about that!
