We will round up giant armies of people, dig underneath the enemy castle's walls and raid their chests for precious Diamond and Redstone!

To be more specific, portals that send you to another server entirely don't yet exist, however a current server already can have multiple "instances" with portals that lead between them at will, which makes it rather easy to set up different areas/realms with links.

Given the scale of Minecraft maps, it'd be more accurate to make comparisons to OpenSim's "Hypergrid" feature than it would be to Second Life's grid.

I believe that the current size of Agni is tiny compared to the potential size of an individual Minecraft map.

"I believe that the current size of Agni is tiny compared to the potential size of an individual Minecraft map."

If the a minecraft avatar is assumed to be the height of an average human, then the max size of a minecraft map is larger than the surface of the earth.

So yes, I'd say so. :)

a) block size is supposedly 1m cubed.
b) potential map size is supposedly 8 times the surface of the earth.
