Re: Minecraft

Have you guys seen some of the crazy stuff that has come from from combining pistons and redstone? They have pretty much invented giant punchcard readers using glass and wool.

The PBM Array
And here's a slightly practical application for it
.

I must build one! I have no idea why, but I want one!

That's pretty crazy, Ben. It's essentially an engine at this point. Would be interesting if you could vary the speed.

Holy shit. I never cease to be amazed by the things people make in Minecraft. I haven't even made a piston yet...

You know I just had to go check, and yes it can as long as you can get underneath to place it.

Man, Silent, if you manage that, you have to show us a video of it in action.

And DH, I look forward to seeing what you'll be doing with your islands

Re: Minecraft

Uh oh. Notch is teasing us with 1.8 again.

http://notch.tumblr.com/


I'm not sure I understand the whole 'Creative' or 'Survival' mode thing. Does than mean we can either build stuff, or go exploring, meet NPC's, and fight monsters, but not both at once? I's confused.

Yay, fresh mea...errr....welcome to our world.

If you need anything, feel free to check out the Public Works building in town. Or just ask in chat.

I'm not sure, but I think he means that there will be a new mode that acts like the old creative mode, but updated to include all the current blocks and features, so you can just build stuff without having to mine or craft.

The logo for the adventure update looks cool, and it seems like it's going to be the biggest single update so far. Jeb also mentioned on his twitter today that they plan to increase the size of biomes. The problem is that it's going to replace the current biome data so already existing areas are likely to undergo extreme climate change. It will be fairly annoying if my town turns from a temperate zone into a snow biome, especially since the ice will make my three docks in the area useless. Still, that's a price I'm willing to pay for bigger biomes.

Re: Minecraft

Hopefully it'll work like Tallgrass and only effect new worlds and unexplored chunks.

Cuz I would be seriously pissed if my treehouse were to suddenly rez in the middle of a desert.

Thanks, Smooth has showed me around the server, and now am building out near Smooth's place, built a bridge to my place, interconnected to my ugly homestead (Which will be torn down soon, will make that small island into a garden or something. and started a cliff-side house. also have tons of unclaimed land to play with

Actually the bridge-works is large for a few hours of work. But now I need to get back mining as I low on material.

It wouldn't replace the dirt blocks with sand, but you could find yourself in a situation where all the grass in the area would turn brownish and it would never rain. In fact, it could change the area around your home area into a mushroom biome and turn the grass purple for all we know.

So suddenly, your place goes from nice woods to Morrowind
