Got Picture? .. will post!

If you have a great manic digger picture to share, Let everyone see it at this newly setup (well... more accurately: newly discovered...) Manic Digger Gallery!!!

manic digger user gallery

Really great to see such a thriving community out there!

Also... there may or may not be rumor (one that i'm starting now) that Ol Joe has reason to get his dig on.

Perhaps you'll see me about on the public servers soon.

Dust off the Blog, I gots sumthin t' say

While I've been absent (and have been very busy doing other more important things...) it seems that Manic Digger has seen some progress, exe has been active and updates made to the base concept for the game, a modding API has been developed and indeed several 'lite' mods have been produced,
 Manic Digger always had been a great interest to me and once more as I arise from the mist of time and obscurity of absence I find that there's shiny new things to keep me interested.

I can't promise that I'm going to make a serious comeback any time soon but I do have a hankering for some block building brilliance.

So even in lieu of my participation, check out the latest version of Manic Digger, see if there's something you can enjoy!

A Little Off Topic...

I know I know, this blog is all about that fantastic open source game Manic Digger! which is great, however I feel I need to post the following as a courtesy.

My partner is raising money for charity and quite frankly, every little helps, so to all the readers of this blog I'm asking if you can give even a little.

The proceeds go toward Macmillan Cancer Support, and there's fun to be had as you're giving! you can vote if my partner has her head shaved or keeps her hair! Its for charity so even if she 'keeps' her locks on her head she's going to add a stripe of Macmillan green colour to her hair.

Take a few moments and check out her blog post: http://www.justgiving.com/user/35944419
the donations page... http://www.justgiving.com/user/35944419
If you're on Google+ look up the hashtag #hairsyourchance
or check out her G+ post: http://goo.gl/lOUpm

If you cant spare a few pennies at least think about sharing these details over your chosen social network.

Thank you in advance.

Oh Hai (^_^) long time no see.

Well its been a while *blows dust away from the keyboard* my RL has been super manic, and I've been drawn back into one of my old gaming passions: Eve Online (for which I also now write a blog... Eve-Blog )

However, true to my word I still check in the MD forums like some lost ghost of times passed... and recently found that there had been some community work to revamp the MD wiki and more importantly, translate the wiki into German!

Great stuff guys!

It's no secret that a large portion of those that enjoy Manic Digger are German, or German speaking so, for all you people .. and especially to any potential players of that persuasion...

thank 'JohnRambo' from the forums for his work:

In other unrelated news; there is still a massive following or at least massive interest in this game, I'm constantly amazed by the number of ongoing hits this blog gets, and I apologize that my life is not currently very involved in Manic Digger as I once was,  so to help ensure that those visiting here understand that there is still an active community behind this project If you have an article which would be of interest, or use to the wider Manic Digger community, I'd be glad to post it here! contact me at the following address with your proposed article and if I remember / get round to it, I'll post it up (I might edit any submission, but all courtesy will be made toward the writer)
