Not trying to be negative, however it seems almost pointless to go Spelunking on a multiplayer server. Only because every time I've gone down a hole it's all picked clean meaning there is nothing to find. I also get so lost and turned around and don't want to shovel up threw the surface as I'm afraid to pop in on someone's claimed land.
I don't fully know how this server works because I am new...however this is my favorite part of Minecraft the adventuring in Caves, Ravines, and Mountains.
Does anyone have input or suggestions on this?
Actually you really need to go exploring around a bit, and it doesn't mean you will find stuff right away....
There is tons, and tons of spots that aren't mined out yet for people to find, and that goes for some nice pristine abandoned mineshafts....
For me whenever I would go mining back in the day I always utilized the minimap mod, and used it to track areas with waypoints... It did work for me as I would know where to go travel back to when I would have to go back to my /f home, and drop of stuff at my private chest in my house....
I do recommend having Macro mod which is a great tool especially if your mining as then you can bind the /f home to a certain key on your keyboard ( Goes for cases when your mining, and get thrown into lava ).
I mean I don't do much mining now as I have other important duties that I rather tend to but did enjoy when I use to back in the earlier days when I played on TeamExtreme
