Re: Minecraft

Post a link when its ready Peak.

Found my first crevice abandoned mine and had quite the adventure exploring. Its VERY easy to get lost in those things though, so pack lots of torches. Came out with a ton of iron naturally, as well as a few diamonds and watermelon seeds. *yay!* And I'll never have to build another piece of rail track.

Now I just have to find an Enderman.

Re: Minecraft

Sure, it's in Swedish and it's a new world so I make the usual stuff (wood, workbench, stone, more workbench, hide for the night, and so on.

I made 10 Let's Plays earlier, but usually I just uploaded about once a month, until I started Vechs Super Hostile: Sunburn Islands a while ago while waiting for 1.8.

My channel is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/PerAkerman3?feature=mhsn

15% rendered so far (I'm making them mp4, so the youtube bit will be a fast upload when it's finished).

Re: Minecraft

Somehow, I have the feeling that Jeb released the shoddiest, buggiest, most unfinished release possible just to get back at all the people who whined and complained about the update not being there yet. I know it's what I'd do.

A software company that did that would deserve to go bankrupt, in my opinion. Fucking off your customers is not a good business plan.

Yeah, the MC community is full of jerks. That doesn't mean Mojang should release shoddy code.

Here in Sweden we have http://www.hitta.se/ which lists all the numbers to everyone in Sweden (except people with secret phone numbers), so a number is not difficult to find.

Re: Minecraft

Is it possible to merge maps with MCEdit? I've grown rather attached to the world I created to play with the pre-release, my island even has a working lighthouse on it, and I'd like to add the region to my main world if possible. I know there'd be horrible chunk errors, but I'm going to have those once I start exploring anyway.

Re: Minecraft

Is it me or has the spawn rate for monsters been seriously upped? After two nights underground I come up and find about 5 creepers all in a group right outside my house, not to mention zombies and skellies.

Re: Minecraft

Monsters don't seem any worse now to me. Basically its just random.

Never a good idea to leave your house at the crack of dawn if you've been awake all night though. Creepers seem to be morning creatures.

Yeah, you can do that. MCEdit lets you copy and paste chunks between maps, I'm pretty sure.

Re: Minecraft

Indeed, it'll even let you copy mobs and the contents of chests. Just tried it myself but wasn't quite happy with the results though so I'll probably try on a different seed, maybe even wait til snow biomes are fixed.

Re: Minecraft

Does the current 1.8 have that insane "void fog" down near bedrock? Kind of wrecks the whole idea of building anything down at the bottom of the map, considering you won't be able to see it.

Re: Minecraft

They sort of fixed it. If you have a shaft to the surface, you can stand near it and see the entire area, like you could in previous versions. Start moving away from the light, and the fog starts kicking in. Its kinda wierd.

Is anyone having trouble logging in? Minecraft server has been down for me all night and I've been playing offline. I hope I didn't break anything updating my texturepack.

Re: Minecraft

Nah, I noticed some issues connecting to minecraft.net, too. I think they're just having issues.

Re: Minecraft

I discovered I can destroy the bedrock and fly about underneath it in creative mode. It's pitch black down there now instead of the old blue and there's grey dust or smoke floating about.
