If we look at their history of releasing details, they often release them with no context whatsoever leaving people to figure things out. Being that these would be major changes to how the game plays, they should have given context.
It wasn't like this with previous updates, it's like this now because when the Minecraft community on reddit heard that 1.7 was going to be the adventure update they got all excited and petitioned Notch to keep all the details secret so that they could be surprised. Back then, people assumed that the update would only include a few new monsters and items and that it would be out within in a month, and even though the Adventure Update is now clearly going to be the biggest update to the game with many game-changing elements, it's still being kept mostly secret because of that stupid petition. I just want to know how all this stuff will work and how to prepare, instead we're getting teaser shots and vague details over twitter.

Re: Minecraft

I prefer to actually wait and see the updates before I start bitching. Though I am a bit concerned that this is going from a adventure/building game to just another RPG stat game.

As far as food, hell I always carry a bunch with me for exploration. A workbench and a bundle of wheat, or a bowl and both types of shrooms can get you through even the toughest cave.

Re: Minecraft

Which is unfortunate. It leads to bad PR, in my opinion. And honestly, it's not even that it's secret that it's the problem, as that's quite normal among the development process of any studio developing something, revealing things as they enter different phases of development. It's how information about it is being revealed that's the problem. If they're going to reveal something, they need to also give some context.

Re: Minecraft

I didn't know about that petition. That's about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. The Minecraft community seems to be composed predominantly of morons. Thank God for you guys, or I wouldn't have any reason to run a server!

Re: Minecraft

Speaking of which Robert...

I have finally run out of things to do in SSP. Yes, I have even created that giant golden statue of Rick Astley. So, I make a formal request... what is the IP of the server you guys play on? I wanna join! Pretty please with cobblestone on top.

Both of you can PM me your Minecraft usernames, and I'll let you know the server address and whitelist you.

Ladies and gentlemen, the zeppelin mod:



The guy that made the mod also hopes that movable ships can be implemented.

Re: Minecraft

That's totally awesome, and I only hope it can be implemented in SMP somehow.

Re: Minecraft

It's awesome, yes... but kind of disappointing that it seems incapable of turning manually. What I'd like to see is a mod for better boat controls. I can't tell you how many times I've crashed my boat because the controls didn't turn it around in time.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, controlling a boat is laggy. You don't get the immediate feedback that you need.

And making half doors isn't possible anymore, is it? I was hoping I could make a half door to make it the size of a fence.
