>And this is why I never stick to one map only. Also because once there's an update that adds, for example, quartz, I'd suddenly find myself in a world where I'd have to travel far to find any quartz.
It's difficult to combine alternating between multiple maps, with an adoration for self-built towns with an often-increasing amount of buildings. But I think I ran into a situation like yours once: My first map, which was almost city-tier by the end, was begun before jungles were a thing in Minecraft. Suddenly, it was very difficult and impractical to find a jungle and then find the way back to the city.
It turned out that it was just as well that way. It was 2012-2013-ish, the PC had last been upgraded in mid-2009, and the RAM was limited to 3.5GB. It would have been 6GB, if my dad had discovered that 64-bit OS's had actually improved since the Itanium Windows XP fiasco. Overall, testing out jungles on test-maps brought the PC down to its stained knees. The PC and the City overall reached a sad ending: The city got so big that I couldn't walk from one end of the city to the other without Minecraft running out of memory and automatically quitting.
>Actually this thread is to gauge how many people would potentially visit a Filly Minecraft server if it ever existed. I have a lovely forest-plains island seed which would suffice for a Filly Kingdom-esque map:

Aah. So no hasty stuff, then (Phew)! I believe I would be on something 2.4.1-esque (I have no idea what the recent numbers of the Minecraft updates have been), but this thread will remind me to try it at some point.
>Aw, what a lovely dedication! What's your favourite material? Wood? Stone? Bricks? Wool? Sponge? Command blocks?
As of 2.3-ish, I can build buildings and apartments out of pretty much every single decorative block... except four. Netherstone, the other Nether block, and sponges, are not used by me because they simply look too ugly. I also have never allowed TNT placements inside my fenced town borders.
Command blocks are seldom used, and never in the construction itself. Food ovens are the only ones I use to any real degree, if my very common redstone torches doesn't count (I like making subway/tram commute lines too).
