Hmmm, and according to rumor, the official release of 1.8 is on Monday.
Tomorrow, or Monday next week?

Tomorrow was the date I've seen thrown around the forum. But as always, take with a grain of salt.

Re: Minecraft

I'll be so glad when I have my main computer back and can play this again. I've got company for all of this week (and last week) and they've taken over my computer because I'm too nice to make them use my evil, evil netbook.

But this might work out fine, if 1.8 is released today. By the time I get my computer back, we should be up to 1.8_12 or something.

Re: Minecraft

No release today darnit. Although Jeb tweets that he is planning to release an updated pre-release version on Tuesday. http://twitter.com/#!/jeb_

Heres a current list of bug fixes.

* SSP chunk memory leak
* Mineshaft density (half now)
* Increased stronghold count to 3 per map instead of one
* Furnace tile entity crash
* Crafting bench ghost items
* Vines (and leaves) crash in nether
* Use item animation in SMP (blocking and eating)
* Blocking in SMP
* Sprinting with right-click or sneaking
* Added some blocks to creative mode
* Fixed dropping items
* Nothing can be eaten in creative mode
* Enderman client-side problems
* Chicken and cow drop burned food
* Squids drop exp
* 1.7 worlds should get structures
* Farmlands rejecting melon and pumpkin seeds
* Bonemeal on melons and pumpkins
* Bonemeal on mushroom only works on dirt or grass
* Added item drops for cracked and mossy smooth stone brick
* Adjusted fog strength at low positions

I'm especially happy about that last one. One thing I'm unhappy about currently is that the deepr you go, the darker it is. My giant underground mine now looks like this, despite loads of torches and the brightness setting turned all the way up.

Re: Minecraft

it's kind of funny on the minecraft forums the amount of sulking going on because 1.8 has been delayed. I often wonder sometimes if people forget that the game is still in beta and is not yet a finished game, or the fact that the pre-release has thrown up some bugs that are or have been fixed.
still makes me chuckle at the posts of 'I'm going to delete mine craft blah blah blah'

me, i'm looking forwards to 1.8 but i'd rather wait until they've got it sorted out first. i've always got other games to play things to do

Re: Minecraft

But... but... we paid money! Notch owes us! *whine whine whine*

Yeah, I've seen that, too. Pretty much why I stay out of the general discussion threads on the Minecraft forums. I go there for texture packs and build ideas and the occasional mod, and that's it. The actual Minecraft community is a bunch of fucking crybabies.

My main gripe is that every major update introduces a fuckload of bugs. I would rather they be delayed so bugs can be fixed. Maybe that's what this pre-release was all about? If so, I am totally in favor of them doing pre-releases going forward, so those of us who want to wait for a "production" release can have more assurances that it's not a buggy disaster.

Speaking of self-entitled fans:

The official forums have too many kids on it, it seems. It's just not worth the grief to visit there except for mods and texture packs. I prefer Minecraft's reddit page because there's fewer assholes (and the ones that are there get voted down) and Notch and Jeb post there occasionally. For example, pigs now have snouts because there was a semi-jokey thread demanding it and Notch thought it was funny.

The pre-release system is the best way to go with future updates, it allows for large-scale bug testing without the massive amount of whining that happens after a major release. 1.8 may be the least buggy major release ever because of it. Pre-release 2 is out now, hopefully that's relatively bug free so 1.8 proper can be released tomorrow.

Re: Minecraft

Wow. What kind of fuckhole calls a developer in the middle of the night like that? People need to get a grip.

Re: Minecraft

I'm not even touching it until it gets an official release. The fact that the pre-release is even getting bug fixes proves to me that it wasn't ready for people to see it. But then again, I guess he wants people to point out bugs on a major release like this. Kind of a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" scenario.

I assume the whole point of the "pre-release" was so bugs could be caught before they made it into the general release. Much less bitching that way.

Re: Minecraft

I don't even go on the official Minecraft forum anymore; all my MC info comes from this thread and my subscription to their Facebook page. I just got fed up with the flame wars. And seriously... calling in the middle of the night over a videogame? It must take someone with little life of their own and too much free time to do that. :/

Re: Minecraft

Well to be fair to MC, nearly every online gaming forum is like that unless its heavily moderated. The Steam forums are a classic example.

We're just lucky to have a safe place like the BBS here.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, we have it good here. At one of my old gaming related haunts though, recently the admin banned himself because his members drove him insane. It was the craziest thing I'd seen on a forum anywhere.

Re: Minecraft

That's epic.

1.8 is now out. I doubt I'll get to play it until Sunday, but I thought you guys might want to know. I am not upgrading the server until there's a new Bukkit, of course.
