The rest of this thread is redundant, although have fun looking at the architecture. I'm just wondering what people think If I make a guide on using mathematics in Minecraft to make awesome buildings. With maths, advanced curves that flow make for awesome bridges. You can create roofing for houses that isn't bland, even with only one material. And lay out buildings that look chaotic, yet well planned out, flowing with the land.

A house I've been working on for quite some time, and I decided that I needed a bit of help with some of the rooms, so I ask you, fellow minecrafters, what do you think of my humble abode?
This is the front of my house. The wooden structure to the right leads to an underground base which is currently unused. This is what you see when you walk through the doorway, my nice little living room. Walk straight from the living room, turn left, and kapow, a dinining room with a bar. Turn to the right and bam. Enter that little doorway and kablooey. Look out of that window at my pool, or an unupdated version of it. updated version will be next, but from a different angle. Different angle, updated version. Back to the kitchen. The stairs lead to something. There in lies my problem. But ah yes, the other rooms. Making your server lag less (by tuning Java settings) - Minecraft Forums. If you are running the Minecraft server on a multi-processor or multi-core system, there are some things you can do with Java's garbage collector settings to help speed things up (perhaps significantly in some cases).
For example, lag spikes that were occurring on my server disappeared after I made these adjustments. ricin in particular gave me a heads up about trying a different GC. Without getting into technical details, you can use the following two flags that should increase your server's performance: Scaffolding and Your new Flying Fortress - Official Minecraft Forums. Every time one of my friends gets infdev or people I play creative with switch over (and lose their WOMC flying) they seem to ask the same question: How do you build such giant things in the sky?
So you want to build something in the air but that pesky gravity is holding you back. Tired of building and destroying pillar after pillar? Wouldn't it be much easier if you had a good solid ground layer? Perfect spheres - blueprints inside - Minecraft Forums. Introduction I found that stacking circles with alternating radii wasn't accurate enough for me, especially for large spheres.
That's why I've written a script to generate mathematically perfect spheres. (Click to enlarge. Credits to IscopeU for building this.) Data values - Minepedia - The Minecraft Wiki! These data values refer to the different types of blocks and items.
They are used in many, many places in Minecraft. Block IDs are used to define blocks placed in the world and inventory items (including items in chests and items dropped in the world). Item IDs are only valid for items. There are also Entity IDs for entities such as mobs and missiles. Block data further defines blocks placed, describing for example the height of water or the direction a torch points. Picture reference.  IDs  Horse Variants Horse entities have Type and Variant fields that determine the type and look of the horse. Variant names taken from the names of the texture file they correspond to.
