i personally like the idea of the maps all being smp-based.
"hey man, that's a cool setup you have there"
"you want to join me?"
the searchable crafting index i'm not so keen on, as it takes away from looking up the recipe AND usage players got when they had to go to a wiki. now if it only held recipes you've already crafted...i'd not have a problem with that.
does this effectively kill TMI? (i didn't like TMI, too much trouble)
