• Upon the Shoulders of Giants: An Adventure in 2b2t
    3,001 replies, posted
2b2t is a server I find very interesting. It's basically an open, public server with no rules whatsoever. No admins, no plugins, no anything. This makes it a pvp free for all. Many communities are invited to this cesspool of a server, including Something Awful, 4chan, and our own Facepunch. [IMG]http://gyazo.com/5a257a19ed803037c43138d40a8d7987.png[/IMG] This is 2b2t.net. More exactly, this is the spawn of it. The spawn is like a nuclear blast. Everything near it is in shambles, and you can only find untouched landscape 5,000 blocks out. That's what most people do, seek refuge elsewhere. The other half of people, like me, live on the Shoulders of Giants. Under the ruins, in the mess. It's a very unique experience. This thread will highlight some of the small treasures I find in this mess of a server, and show some of my adventures. Here's some pictures. The spawn on a rainy day [URL]http://gyazo.com/9b3bc592c28ab2af81a2d6099aa593e7.png[/URL] An amazing tower, griefed to sadness. I currently live under this, in the mines. They go on forever, and I am still exploring them! [URL]http://gyazo.com/e092178548485d7c7363fd845dd2acd5.png[/URL] A slice through the center of the entrance. I'm pretty sure this was used to get all the cobblestone and materials to make the tower, but it must have taken forever!

It takes a lot of strength to explore the mess of blocks and griefed structures, but I find it intriguing, finding remnants of hard work and labor put into a structure, only for it to be griefed and forgotten. The server IP is [B]2b2t.net[/B]. Share what strange things you find on this thread! [release][B]There is no one base, but a separate group of republics. The Peoples' Republic of Facepunch is led by each of these bases' leaders They all have their different rules and regulations associated with them. [highlight]Ask each leader for the coords to their respective base.[/highlight][/B] [B]Project Arsenal:[/B] A Mob Grinder project, but could be expanded to house people and provide a decent infrastructure. Run by Chezhead, ask for coordinates only if you are willing to help create the mob grinder. [B]Camp General Discussion:[/B] Run by Startoad, a nice base willing to house many people. [B]Camp Kickass[/B] - Run by SLAGATHOR09, a nice little open-air village with many resources and even more animals. A mob grinder is here as well, with a great military personal. If you would like to register a base, /tell or PM me the coordinates and some details about it. If it has enough people, you'll become an adviser at the discretion of the current ones. In order to make a base, it must have 5 members, have a set location, have some sort of name (preferably a subforum or a project name), and a designated leader. It should be able to house a total of 10 people. Also, limit the distance to around 3000 or so blocks from spawn.[/release] [release][U][B]Current Members of the Republic of Facepunch[/B][/U] [People in bold are Advisors.

Any room or chest with a clear identification of a Facepunch username's name above it should not be taken from unless given permission by that person. Looking inside the chest is fine, however. 4. Each fort is owned by a certain person under Chezhead. If you have an issue or need specific coordinates, ask the current leader. Forts and leaders are in the op. If you have an issue inside the base, contact the fort leader before Chezhead. These leaders of the forts have the right to refuse entry to specific people, but Chezhead will make the final decision on most issues in fortresses. 5. Betrayal is not permitted whatsoever, and includes giving coordinates to anyone non-facepunch, breaking any of these rules, or generally making the life in this server a worse player for Facepunch players. These will be enforced by death and or exile.[/release]
Okay, i'll come give it a shot.
Giving it a shot now.
Awesome server, except for when I couldn't see shit in the rain :P
That was annoying. I was in the mines below our hideout, and found diamond. I got lost in some caves, then a creeper killed me. I need to get that all back, so I'm aimlessly lost now. [editline]27th April 2011[/editline] Well, I found the place I died, but my stuff is all gone. I traveled for too long. At least I know the tunnels much better.

Wouldn't it be cool if some servers published the maps so people could explore them in ssp like ancient ruins (or with some friends in a private smp server)? [editline]27th April 2011[/editline] I always thought it would be interesting to walk around a map that I didn't make myself... Anyone have a giant map they'd like to share?
This sounds amazing....
I'll try to find your shelter in the mines and leave a sign if i do
Sounds fun. I'll be there sharpish. :v:
I wanted to play, but I'm lagging so bad... :saddowns:
We're moving out, so gather your things! As soon as this iron is done and the sun rises, we'll be off!
Server looks cool, but way too laggy. Fell to my death, then after walking a few hunderd blocks I died. I think it would be cool to do this with a limited map size, so people would fight over the last bits of iron etc.
I'll try it out. Looks awesome!

[img]http://img860.imageshack.us/img860/4360/20110427224156.png[/img] found this just west of the ruined castle. It might have been made by one of you, since everything else near it had been griefed.
This server symbolises most public servers: a wreck
Holy shit, this place is a mess. So I suppose the point of this server is to hide your base so it doesn't get griefed to fuck and back?
This is so fucking fun! This castle is awesome!
FPers: DONT HAND OUT OUR COORDS TO ANYONE. If they are a FPer they will look at the thread [editline]27th April 2011[/editline] AntiApina just screwed us over
Looks interesting im joining...
This is amazing, but I'll be surprised if the castle is still there tomorrow.
