Update: A Message for the Future

HLVRkEx.gif

There are signs.  But what good are signs without letters?  Think you can just type out your message with your computer keyboard?  What keyboard?  You're in the wilderness, friend.  Letters don't just grow on trees.

When I was a kid, my father had one of those black plastic sign boards with removable white letters in the lobby of his business.  When he wasn't looking, I re-arranged the letters to make the sign say something much more interesting.

Actually, this happened when I was an adult, not when I was a kid....

But how long do you really think your precious little message is going to last, knowing the kids these days?  My father was not thrilled, and you will not be thrilled either.

So you gotta lock that sign.  My father never thought of that.  Apparently, in 35 years of running his business, he never fathomed that a bad seed like me would come waltzing through his lobby.

But there are no bad seeds in this game, so you probably don't have to worry about it.  Try putting a second sign next to your first sign that says, "Please do not change the sign."  Or was that "Inspect Neonatal Hedgehogs"?

Yeah, so, lock your sign, daddy-o.

And hey, since signs are containers, that means we can lock some other containers now too.

I will kill on sight anyone who tries to rearrange the letters of the signs. Good that your father never thought of this solution when you were a kid...

It takes way too many skewers. You should be able to break a skewer in half and get two letters each.

Sapling farm?

Some letters are easier to make than others, and only require one sapling each.  Others require many saplings.  R requires 3.  I think that is one of the hardest letters.  If you want to talk about me by name on a sign, you have to earn it with nine saplings.

I don't want signs to be easy, at all.  I hate sign clutter in Minecraft.

A sign should be special and treasured.  The posted/locked signs can be stolen and posted somewhere else.  Signs are valuable.

Letters as currency?

This sign will forever be very special to my soul, and the invaluable Letters are certainly the envy of the World.
A Treasured Sign
I am glad that the future generations will be on the receiving end of such a thing of beauty. Perhaps it might even inspire the naming of their Children some day...

Of course you had to make sign-making as complicated and griefable as possible :^P

This is what we refer to as "doing it right".

Sucks that it overlaps with the pond (and likely other things) like that.

I'll have to fix that somehow!

Re: Update: A Message for the Future

It really does suck that ponds can get in the way, considering how it's very much a potential to block a whole costly letter.
What, do you think Letters grow on Trees?
Also, poor Dickville, they won't be able to have their name in the middle slot.
