Re: Minecraft

Dear God thats adorable! Love the little shake when they leave the water, and the head tilt. So much emotion from just a couple of blocks.


Finally single player won't seem quite as lonely anymore.

I wanted a border collie.

They could certainly be useful. I wonder will they follow you into caves?

Re: Minecraft

That's pretty neat! I wonder if they will defend you against hostile mobs too, not just attacking the ones you attack.

Only quote I've seen so far from the programmer indicates that they won't attack Creepers. Too big a risk of the whole pack getting wiped out in one explosion.

Oh, that's awesome. Now then, I wonder if it will eventually be possible to build a dog sled for the snowy regions

Re: Minecraft

For anyone who cares, I am now making my active world available for download, updated every night.

I finished making my big-ass pool (and putting a roof over it).

Download

Though it probably goes without saying, this is a Survival Single-Player world. All of my structures are connected by tunnels/shafts.

I've not done anything in the Nether other than build a portal to it.

I can't guarantee it will change every day but I probably mess with it a few times a week.

Re: Minecraft

Oooh, I'll have to have a look tomorrow when I play Robert.

Maybe I should upload mine too once my big honkin' pyramid is done.

Great, now I have to choose between my girlfriend and this.

Or do I?

I'll just have to keep her from griefing. I give her copies of my world and she just goes to town destroying everything. I won't let her touch the real deal.

Re: Minecraft

Maybe I'm doing something wrong Robert, but when I try to open your file, I get a 'This archive is corrupt' error.

I am a foolish person. I wrote an FTP script to do the heavy lifting for me and apparently I forgot to make it upload in binary mode.

I just reupped and downloaded it and it works now.

Re: Minecraft

I'm new to the beta version of Minecraft, just got it today. I spent most of the time collecting wood and dirt and looking up what it does on the Minecraft Wiki. Then at night when the skeletons came I had failed to make myself any sort of weapon or shelter so I just dug a 5-block-deep hole in the ground and hid there until I got bored and restarted

Re: Minecraft

Thanks Rob. I'll re-download and give it a look tomorrow.

Gaaah! I reminded myself tonight why I stick with stone tools. I was digging around in a cave with when I spotted five blocks of iron on the floor. As I dug out the last one, I looked up at some more blocks on the ceiling and stumbled right into another cave right underneath mine that was full of lava. Lost my bow, clock and compass, a lovely diamond pick and sword and a bunch of iron armor. *sniff*

Welcome the Minecraft man. Congrats, you've just experienced the typical 'first night'.
And really, unless they're desperate, even experienced players find shelter at night. Those monsters are nasty.


Best strategy is to explore and gather wood and food in the day, and burrow into a hillside and mine at night. Gather raw material until you're ready to start on a proper building.

Re: Minecraft

^ Then build a bed, so you don't have to pace for ten-minutes when you don't need to do any mining or crafting.
