Re: Minecraft

Just played with the pressure track a bit, seems it's just the same as a normal plate, gives power when you stand on it (well, roll over in a cart). So you'll have to put a red stone circuit down to make it work as needed.

Re: Minecraft

Back when I tried to load the artwork I created into the texture pack myself and install it, it crashed the game. So I had to ask the person who made the pack in the first place to install it for me. This could get ugly.

Thankfully the 1.4 texture still works okay. Except the grass block sides are messed up.

And I still can't get my wolves to stand up.

I really don't think they'd ever do an update like that. Similarly, I think Notch has abandoned the idea of making torches have a limited life. That short-lived idea of requiring more light the deeper you go was quickly retracted. I think they learned their lesson about changing such fundamental aspects of Minecraft. It would just screw so many people's worlds over ...

Re: Minecraft

Since Robert's server is temporarily borked, I went back to one of my single player worlds, and wandered about, looking for rain. Of course, since this is Minecraft, I instead fell down a massive, near-vertical open shaft, and got lost in an extensive cave system. Eventually, I decided to mine my way back up, and emerged... in nearly the exact same spot I landed when I first fell down the shaft.

The more things change...

Re: Minecraft

There's no way to put a button in the cart that one can press to stop it? That would be useful.

Oh and has anyone noticed the extra options now? You can rescale the interface and use Advanced OpenGL, whatever that does lol.

Re: Minecraft

Apparently, my server may not be back up for a couple days. A lot has been changed around in the networking code and the CraftBukkit folks need time to adapt. Additionally, there are a lot of bugs introduced with 1.5 so it's probably going to be a moving target as Mojang rolls out fixes.

It's times like this I wonder why Notch and company don't both working with groups like Bukkit to make these updates go more smoothly. It wouldn't be that damn hard to just keep the lines of communication open and let modders have some idea what to expect.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's what happened with the server I used to play on, and it doesn't look like it will be back up anytime soon due to one of the server mods not being up to date.

Well, I have developed a system where you press a button several blocks in advance of your stop, it sends a delayed, inverted redstone signal through an AND gate (ANDed with the button approaching the station from the other side) which is connected to three power rails. I miss the button half the time, and I spent ages going up and down the track to make sure that the timing for all the buttons was right, but I have two working stations now.

Alternatively, you can punch the cart and it will be destroyed in about a second, but where's the fun in that?



I played it for a few hours today but it didn't rain at all. I even went to the snow biome and wandered about for a bit in the hope that it would snow but nothing happened. I hope my game isn't glitched in some way.

Re: Minecraft

^ Yeah, I haven't seen any weather yet either. I'm thinking I may try generating a new world soon, and see if that changes anything.

That sucks about the server, RM. I want to finish my inn!

Re: Minecraft

Since 1.5 is out, I think I'm going to start a new "elaborate" world, with a quarry, castles made out of diamonds, and large chests fit to burst with cocoa beans. I've been longing for that fort that I can't see the opposite wall of with "Far" graphics turned on.

Re: Minecraft

Well, I failed to come across any snow storms, but I did manage to create the largest continuous snow\tundra biomes I've ever seen.

Map

I used "Canadave87" as the seed, in case anyone wants to try for themselves.

Re: Minecraft

There was a storm, and I think I got hit by lightning. No Creeper damage was evident, but I suddenly lost about 4 hearts and heard a weird sound effect. Didn't start any fires.

Oh man. The trick of placing ladders only on every other block doesn't work anymore? That's going to take some time fixing all of those ladders.
