Ok, so im looking to make my minetrack for the on a rail achievement (last one :)) and im struggling to find a flat bit of land to make it with.

the guide suggests 500m is about 500 blocks? how wide is the world (i.e. do i need to start from a southern point to make sure i dont hit an invisible wall?)

Beats me.... I used this and it worked perfectly: Minecraft On A Rail Achievement Guide - XBOX 360 - YouTube

EDIT: I also found a tall hill and ran my track from there- I had it go across the map & I cut out the tops of trees and other hills when I ran into them.

Seems like a reasonable assumption, I lost count myself as I continue to work to build the darn track long enough... the suspense is building nicely. I wonder if anyone out there knows for sure?

i think the worlds are 1024 x 1024 on the xbox. just dig a 1x2 tunnel if you hit anything, shouldn't take too long.

I believe 500m = 500 blocks. Also, I couldn't get the achievement to pop on a hill, so I built the track flat and it popped after that.

Each rail/block is 1m. So you'll need 500 rails in one big straight line in order to get the achievement.

I was going to post a topic asking how far 500m is but I knew I was going to get a wise answer like its 500 meters.

500m Is 500 blocks. I dug to the bottom of the map and dug a 3x3 to one end of the map, marked every 50 blocks. not the most idea way of doing it though.

0.3106 miles is equal to 500 (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_conversion_of_500_meters_into_miles#) meters

So let me get this straight... i have to build this this in a straight line otherwise it won't unlock?
I just spent hours building a gigantic minecart system that will take me from the starting area to my mansion...

it has to be at least 500m as the crow fly's so it doesnt rechnically have to be straight
mine had a kink in it and went up and down hills and lots of peoples had got an achievement in my world

I followed the guide on the forum for how many rails I would need, hell I even used more rails then suggested and still I got nothing when I reached the end.
My tracks are set up like a roller coaster at certain Points so at some points it will climb really high and then come down.

I think this achievement might be glitched because I rode my rail and didn't get the achievement, but rode it a second time and it worked fine.

Yeah I finished the cheevos on my second account and rode the rails from my first accounts world, nothing popped up until I went on a straight track all the way.
