Re: Minecraft

Colored lights would be awesome and it certainly looked like the new lighting system supports colors. With colored glass we could do stained-glass windows! Woot. I noticed they're finally adding smoothstone stairs and even brick stairs. But where are the sandstone stairs?!

There's a new poisonous blue spider that spawns in the new dungeons. Well, I'm never going underground again.

I'm hoping that it's just because they didn't show sandstone stairs. It's certainly possible that the video didn't show everything.

Re: Minecraft

Colored glass would be cool, but I'd personally love to have glowing colored blocks. Combine sand, glowdust, and dye, toss it in the furnace, and ta-da. Colored mood lighting, giant neon billboards, you name it.

Sweet! And webs finally appear as well.

Also, my mod pick of the week, is Fossils. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t01sP...&feature=feedu

I swear, as soon as the finished game is released, I'm gonna fill my worlds with bunnies and dinosaurs.

Does Notch not care about my crippling arachnophobia?

I still remember my second night in the game, I had put a door on my little shack and was looking out when I saw something moving in the distance. "Is that a spider? It can't be, I didn't see anything about spiders being in the game. Oh dear, what are those glowing red things? Are those eyes? Oh my god, it is a giant spider! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!"

I waited a full two minutes after the sun to come up for it to die a horrible death, but it didn't.

Stained Glass Windows? There's a mod for that.

I think quite a few actually.

To quote from that page as it appears now:

"09:35, 29 August 2011 Kizzycocoa (Talk | contribs) deleted "Blue Spider" ‎ (all we have is 2 tweets from a non-mojang person about a spider that is tinted blue. for all we know, this could be a bug, the result of gamma sliding, or a myriad of other things. no speculation.)"

So I wouldn't worry quite yet.

Re: Minecraft

Has anyone come across a chamber like this before? I was out exploring one cave system near my bunker when I came across this. It's kinda weird and neat at the same time because it's so regular. And it's not the first one like it that I've found in that particular world, there's another one underneath my bunker that is largely same.

Re: Minecraft

I came across a similar cavern once:



The holes in the floor and ceiling weren't there originally, I made those while mining coal and iron, there was just an entrance and an exit behind where I'm standing. I found it after an hour of spelunking in a maze-like cave network and it was a nice serene plane to relax for a few minutes before continuing on. That was almost a year ago but its unusual circular shape combined with the natural water spring has kept it in my memory, and I somehow remembered the route back.

I've seen pretty near that exact chamber in my old main. I dug three more to match it, made it a four leaf clover basement.

Re: Minecraft

Interesting. I wonder what causes it? Doesn't seem so random, does it? Maybe the Herobrine built them

Yep, seen plenty of chambers like that, in different worlds.

I decided to post some screenshots. I've started construction on a minecart track connecting the various places I visit frequently. It doesn't (yet) go into my actual mines though.

Here's a view of my main house. On the left outside the picture is a minecart station and a door outside. In the picture then follows my main storage and crafting room. Here I have currently 10 sorted and labeled large boxes partially full of all sorts of more or less valuable stuff.

Next is my fireplace / waste disposal, followed by the three furnaces and the door to my first mine shaft (goes 85 blocks deep vertically).




This leads to my present cave system. I first explored many of the natural mines there, but lately I needed a whole lot of cobblestone (to refine again to placeable smooth stone) and I've started on a methodical underground quarry. At some point I got a bit careless with my torch placing and had a skeleton spawn behind me.



The following is a portion of the cavemap generated using cartographer. I've broken into a new cave complex in the bottom of the map which I'll be exploring soonish since I'll need more iron for the cave minecart system. I already placed 216 iron worth (nearly half of what I had) of minecart tracks and I want a much larger network eventually.



This is the view from the minecart track towards and into my house. I've installed autocart (a mod) so I don't have to built ugly booster tracks.



In the background is my greenhouse / sky farm.



The track leads to the station from which I go hunting (mobs and animals) and my gravel mine is also located there.



Is this X? I've seen just about all your mind craft videos on YouTube. Love the pictures

Huh? No.

What makes you think that was by X?


I've also seen most of his minecraft videos, they were very good.

Re: Minecraft

Well, witness a near lifesize Titanic in the making by Spock (yes, I like to call him that) and I. I say near lifesize because while I'm going for the real length of 269 meters, there are going to be some changes to accommodate how blocks work as we can't be terribly exact. I'll update each week or so with some progress.
