Re: Minecraft

Honestly though, I really wish there wa ssome sort of scafolding block. Its a PITA to have to mine, place, then break down all those damn dirt blocks.

On the problem of logging in a seeing the world fall, it's a non-issue. The game would be able to tell which chunks were generated pre-gravity and just tag them as such so the gravity won't happen on them. Everything you built is still floating.
Well that would certainly make the game a lot more challenging. Having to make sure your tunnels and structures are braced properly, just like the real world. Seems like it would be a nightmare to code though.

Ahh, gotcha. Sorry, I spend way too much time over on Fark.com. Where some people say stuff like this with a straight face.

There was a post by notch ages ago about floating blocks, and how he didn't like them. He said something about not getting rid of them, but maybe making you need to use some Obsidian to keep them floating. Or something like that.
NO. NOOOOO!... dammit, where's a glass case full of Enterprise models when you need it...?

Seriously though, that would suck epically. I think I would just have to stop playing if notch took floating blocks away.

Re: Minecraft

*sigh* Currently struggling with trying to add a custom texture I created and failing miserably. The software keeps choking on it no matter what I try.
Just sent the image to a texture maker for advice, so we'll see.

Re: Minecraft

My house came under attack by a virtual army of ninja creepers. Every time I turned around I felt like I had one in my face. Damage to my main house was minimal, but my underground shelter was partially exposed and one of my furnaces destroyed. Also, I finally got some woofies spawning on my map!

Re: Minecraft

Yay, some kind person fixed my texturepack for me! Of course I still can't figure out wtf was wrong.

I decided to go ahead and upload it if anyone else would like to give it a try. Only bit of wierdness is that I replaced Netherrack with riveted steel plate to use on my airship hull. The furnitures come sin shades of green, so its probably best suited for a wooded environment.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N923OEXV

And heres an easy program to install custom textures, and upgrade your game to accept larger than 16 x 16 textures. You don't even have to unzip the file. It even lets you unpatch your game if necessary.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=COTRMY5U Using it is pretty self explainatory. If theres a problem you can download it from other locations. Just search for MCPatcher.

Oh man I've had mornings like that. You miss an attack and it blows up, followed by a second one the blindsides you before you can recover. Or kills you. Then when you respawn and try to go get your stuff, you get jumped by another while you're unarmed.

Actually its not so much the Creepers that bother me, its the pumpkins keeping me up all night with their damn chanting!

Re: Minecraft

Minecraft has taken in €23 million since it went on sale. Notch wont get to keep all of it because he lives in a godless communist country that steals his money and rapes his grandparents (according to Glenn Beck), but he'll have a very comfortable life from here on out.

Re: Minecraft

Yes, with the new patch they do until you "destroy" the bed. This is going to be great for exploration far beyond the original spawn point...

Upcoming features:

The Piston-mod will probably be included (somewhat modified) in the vanilla game

Achievements and Statistics

Rain and Snow (depending on biomes). Apparently thunder is considered too.

Re: Minecraft

I just looked up the piston mod. That's awesome! Perfect for traps and cannons and such.

I look forward to the rain, snow, and thunder.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, the piston-mod rocks. Haven't used it myself (don't feel like installing mods that have to be reinstalled with every upgrade).

One of the demonstrations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=salYX2iDyqs

Re: Minecraft

Bah. Mods are for losers.

Finally tamed my first wolf... and unfortunately, Flake doesn't seem very intelligent. I ordered him through some basic tasks, and here's how he came out:

Moving through a 1x1 hole in the wall: FAILED
Jumping up a 1x2 block staircase: FAILED
Attacking mobs in the most efficient way possible: So-so.
Following me: FAILED

I think Flake will just have to be window dressing for a while until I make my house more dog-friendly.

Re: Minecraft

I keep my wolf indoors, sitting. He's just there to look good, I don't trust him to actually wander about.
