    For now, we really need to gather fire resistance potions (8 mins preferable)! Any donations would be awesome! Talk to me in game for info/updates!

    Small Update!

    We've made a lot of progress, but there is still a lot to go! There is now room for ghasts to spawn, so please be careful as you dig. As well, watch out for holes, as there has been some experimentation with TnT and some random rogue holes going straight down.

    A picture of said ghasts has been included!

    Hey everyone! The project is coming along! We've made a dent in the netherack, but still have a long ways to go!
    Join us in digging!
    As of today, approximately 17 people are involved in the project! Let's raise that number up!
    Here are some progress pictures + other additions

    A mass chunk missing! Below, you can see the wall has begun from the bottom as well.

    Thank you to Cakle for building the blaze spawn a super smelter! The lava buckets by major are helping to fuel this monster!
    We've made a dent, but we are not finished yet! Get involved today!

    Major a while back attacking the lava. A dangerous job, but props to Major for getting so much done already

    Update here!
    The Blaze warp area has grown from a tiny corner platform into something much more impressive and ingenious. Check out the cool porch :D

    We've finished the roof! We still have a lot to go for the walls, and the lava is coming along as well

    Hello Everyone! Another update here!
    We've been making decent progress, but still have a lot to go and need as many pickaxes as possible to help mine up the netherrack! Get involved today!
    I've collected some more pictures of our efforts so far!
    First, a satisfying picture of netherrack removal
    2018-06-20_19.55.03.png
    We've also finished draining the lava! A huge hand to Major for tackling this part early, and to Cakle for helping to finish it off!
    2018-06-20_19.57.23.png
    Last mention today is the slabbing done on the fortress! Thanks to Major for slabbing this so that enemies were not falling onto us as we finished the lava!
    2018-06-20_19.57.41.png
    Thanks everyone who has participated so far! Let's get it!

    Small update!
    Big progress on the bottom layers! We've reached the biggest job, and have been working on it for a while: digging!
    However, unless we rally together and have more people working on it more often, it will take us a very long time to finish. Let people know about the server project, and let's get digging C:

    Check it out! It's been a while since the last update because it's been a lot of the same! Dig Dig Dig!
    Look at this progress though everyone!
    2018-07-29_01.47.29.png
    This is me, standing in the farthest corner from our blaze spawn point. As you can see, we are making HUGE progress digging up the netherrack. The bottom has started to be slabbed.
    We still need a lot of help! Right now, we are looking for people to help slab the bottom, as well as continue digging!
    Get involved today! ^-^

    September update!

    As you all know, this project started off with a huge challenge. We knew that it would take time to dig up such an ambitious amount of bedrock, and at this point, the before and after is astonishing!

    Here are some photos to compare!

    Before:
    2018-05-04_16.56.51.png
    -Starting at 2 layers below bedrock, dug at the corner of our massive layout. There was 4 million netherrack on the digging journey before us at the time of this picture.
    2018-05-09_21.22.55.png
    -Major standing before a challenge that he attacked bravely, removing more lava than you can imagine from our project square. This was below the mass upper layers of netherrack.

    AFTER
    2018-09-24_17.59.53.png
    -The upper mass of netherrack is gone (taken from the warp). At the point of this picture, there is approx a bit less than a million blocks of netherrack to go!

    It's been a journey, but we have tackled this task fiercely, and for that I thank everyone who has so far gotten involved with the current server project <3
