I like the idea that we'll have to breed animals, but it sounds worrying for existing worlds. I hope I wont have to generate new chunks to find farm animals, especially since I live on an island so getting animals to my main base would be a nightmare.
Easy:

I don't even want to think of the logistics behind having to do that.

Re: Minecraft

Any thoughts on having "ancient ruins" being rendered as a part of the base world, with matching artifacts that can be used to boost the abilities of certain tools? Would make for an interesting extra angle.

Re: Minecraft

Iasius - Hey if they'd go ahead and give us linkable minecarts it could work.

137th - I've ben hoping for that feature for ages. Maybe throw in a few hidden monster spawners too to make it challenging.

Mojangs been very tight lipped about this update though. So could be anything.

I'd love something like that, they could be like dungeons on the surface. They'd have to be rare though, there should be at least 5 minutes of walking between ruins.


I know that I said I was finished with SSP, but I decided to go back and build a rail line to my new Sky Needle, something I hadn't done as I didn't have enough gold. That meant I had to return to my mine shaft at Fort Jupiter which I've barely even used since the pre-Halloween update era. Back then, slimes were very rare so I never went up against one and only saw two in my world in all my time playing. That meant I had no slime-balls, which I'm going to need soon for sticky pistons.

So while I have been mining over the last few days, I kept my eye out for slimes in the branches. I saw 3 small ones, punched them and failed to get any slime-balls. (Pro-tip: Don't ever shout out "Give me your slime-balls!" in the middle of the night, it's easy to misinterpret.) But this afternoon I was walking down the main branch of my mine when I heard what sounded like a slime orgy. I looked down various branches to see where the sound was coming from, but it quickly stopped. I assumed that some slimes had drowned in an adjacent cave, or something like that. Then I looked down one of the branches and saw this:



17 slime balls sitting in a 1x3 tunnel. I've just gone from 0 slime balls in 9 months of playing to 17 miraculous slime-balls in time for the 1.7 update. The great Notch is clearly looking out for me.

Re: Minecraft

I do hope 1.7 gives Slime spawns a boost though. I've actually yet to see one on the server. Even if I did though I wouldn't have the heart to kill them, I think they're kinda cute. Well, except for the really big ones.

Re: Minecraft

Well That's frustrating. For some reason, my savegame won't show up in the load screen, and nothing I've done will do anything to fix that. The only back up I have of it was from a week or so ago, and that sends me back before I had finished the Nethercoaster, the massive obsidian pyramid or, worst of all, my massive treehouse. :/

Re: Minecraft

Did you try renaming the file level.dat_old to level.dat? That worked for me once before (while also resetting several chunks near spawn and destroying half my house), but I'm not sure if it works with the new save structure.

The small ones are kind of cute, you can easily forget that they're trying to kill you but lack the ability to do damage. Still, I need their balls for sticky pistons and if that means killing some cute green things then that's what I'll do.

Re: Minecraft

I tried renaming, yes, and then someone elsewhere wrote that I should try using MCEdit, which also would not load it. It appears both level files were corrupted somehow, I really don't know how yet. There was a few odd glitches earlier in the week, the game dumped me out and when I reloaded I had nothing in my inventory and I was at a new spawn point (in which I lost the rest of my maps).

I guess I'm just going to roll back and try some new things out, at least I get back my maps.

Yeah, that's impressive, but it's likely they used a tool to do it for them, and I know there are tools from looking around, and it would be more impressive if they actually placed the blocks themselves and gathered resources.

Re: Minecraft

Notch released a new screenshot from 1.7 that appears to show magical flying. Also, there's some sort of weird curvature going on with the world.

Re: Minecraft

Wow nice. But I hope its either temporary, or hard to come by though. Otherwise I'm going to rage after building all those minecart tracks.

So I wonder where are the players are hanging out currently? The official MC forum has been down the past 3-4 days.
