Legendary Craft I was greeted with a message as soon as I entered. I was told to laydown an Ender Chest where my emerald would be kept and I could protect myland. I was also informed that voting was very important and they had ranks inthis world. The emeralds would be subtracted from my chest when Ipurchased items. I was also instructed to download a texture pack. There weresigns stating that new players were always welcome and to read all the signs.There were approximately 250 people when I was there, the chat log was lit upwith people talking and trading. I visited several different areas. In Gate 8 I was transported to desertland. In Gate 9 I was transported to a forestry snow land. I tried to build, butthere is a rule that you have a 9X9 square area wherever your Ender chest.Some people had a plain chest on the ground; while others had a erectedvarious size houses. Either way, you could only make changes to the groundvia digging or chopping trees if you were out of those boundaries designatedby an ender chest. While I was there I visited a store. Of course I tried to opena chest, but because there were no emeralds in my chest, it said I did not havepermission. I like this world best of all. It was very well organized and feltcomfortable. Of all the worlds, I am most likely to come back to this one.
Spawn PointI was greeted with a book with some instructions. I also started out with aender chest I was suppose to place in one of the worlds to claim my land andbuild my home.

Gate to TutorialThere were several gates. This one leads to a full tutorial with signspointing out what to do in steps.
Elevator LandingWhen I took one of the elevators down, I landed here where there was plentyof food. It was very nice to know as food can be hard to come by when one isfirst starting out.
Elevator RoomThis was a very cool space to walk through while looking for the elevators.

UberCraftThe next place I visited was UberCraft. Therewas 400 people when I landed here. I was afraidI was in for a fight as most people were in armor.There were some very interesting places in andthings that happened in this world. Take a look atmy tourist pictures in the next slides.

LibraryThis building was also in the main square where the Spawn Point is.
Inside the LibraryShelves were full of signs that gave useful information

Hidden ChestsI dove off the end of the main area and found this area. It was a place wherepeople had items stashed with signs. The cool thing was that since it was notyours, you could not open it.
Eco CityThis place was nice to visit. There was almost200 people when I logged on. My favorite thingabout it was how it attempted to implement orderthroughout the worlds. There was signseverywhere making sure people knew what todo. The it was based on economics andattempted to mimic these principles. Here aresome of the places I visited.

ConclusionI had a great time visiting the different servers. Ilearned a lot about the popularity of MineCraftand see it as having wide rang applications ineducation. A world can be created to theeducators or instructional designersspecifications, even including events. Thestudents can have an experiential learningexperience using various lessons.
