It's almost the same. Shjade was taken when I first registered at the site (rare, but has happened a couple times before) so I had to go with an older variant I used to use.

It is 3X4

you don't have to fill it in corners either.  So it can be
oXXo
XooX
XooX
XooX
oXXo

(X = Obsidian.  o=Air)

::) 4x5, you mean. Yeah, I worked it out after about 5 rebuilds. Many swearwords were said. *grins*

Of course, when I finally got through I shot a pigman. Hunted down by half a dozen blazing things >:(

If you build in the Nether, make sure its out of something strong. Ghasts easily tear through anything with their damn fire balls. Took me forever to build myself a wall between my portal and them out of netherstone, much to my dismay.

I think I lucked out in that respect - I popped out in an odd cave system. No Ghasts in sight (heard one, though...)

It doesn't need to be strong if it's whole. They won't shoot at you through solid walls. This means you can make tunnels from one portal to the next out of glass, provided you make sure you're not under fire while building it (you might switch to peaceful until it's complete if you're having a hard time, and it isn't easy building in the Nether), and you should then be safe moving from one portal to the other despite being able to see Ghasts outside.

In theory.

I recently got into this game, and I have to say it is awesomely awesome.
 
I also just made myself a spiffy new skin for my character which got me wondering, what sorts of skins does everyone here have? Also, did you make it yourself or download it.
 
Here's mine (I'm a zombie). I kinda like how it turned out.

I, unfortunately, lack the computer wizardry needed to understand how to download and use the skins, or make my own.

Im also hoping for wolves/bears. Thats when I download a John Marston skin and go NUTS 'skinning' cows.

There's an excellent looking mod that has wolves, lions and all other sorts of animals. I forget it's name.

And Scrolls looks intriguing, though I'm not that enthralled by its premise. *waits to see what it's like*

That's so awesome!

I, unfortunately, lack the computer wizardry needed to understand how to download and use the skins, or make my own.

It's actually pretty easy. All you need to do to change your skin is find one you like, download it (Should be a 64x32 png). Then log on to minecraft's main site and click on profile. Upload the texture and poof, your skin is changed.
 
If you want to make your own, the basic player texture is provided on the same page that you upload your skin to. You can edit it in your favorite image editing software or use a nifty little program developed by the minecraft community to edit and preview your skin. I used photoshop for the actual editing, and used the MCSkinEditor program to preview it and get the screenshot I showed off earlier.
 
Get SkinEdit Here
(Note: put http://gf.web44.net/skinedit/skintest2.jar into the input box that pops up on startup to get the preview function working.)
 
If you want to install texture packs, that's even easier. Just download the .zip file containing the texture pack to your .minecraft\texturepacks folder, then select it from Minecraft's main menu.
 
If you don't want to fool with it, I can try making you a custom skin for your character. That could be a fun little challenge. Just let me know what you want.

Not to mention that creepy picture you have that looks like a wolf O_O
I swear I've seen that in my nightmares before, always hunting me, watching from the shadows but never attacking.

See, my little brother, being a gamer with no mind of his own, would eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner if he could. When he first got his own Xbox, he had three games. Modern Warfare 2, Reach, and some baseball game. All he played was MW2. Now, all he plays is Black Ops and Minecraft. I hope to god he doesn't find this.

I've been following the Yogscast minecraft adventures on youtube, and I'm really impressed with them. I totally want to create something like their Israphel series.

I felt the .7 update was rather disappointing, but the screenshots of the .8 update look really quite awesome. Ruins and villages and giant mushrooms and a new mob... awesome.

Also, I wish they would add in something like the Finite Water mod. I just love pumping water around everywhere ^^
