Minecraft 1.0 is released!

(But you can't play it, because minecraft.net is down. )

Re: Minecraft

Just downloaded it, it just took a dozen or so clicks of the 'Retry' button. That was to be expected though, with a million or so people trying to download at once.

Anyway, happy release day everyone. We're an official game now!

Re: Minecraft

That's right, us fans are now slightly less hipsterish.

I spawned a new world to test it, found a huge snow biome. I wont be playing it much for a while though, I've got Byzantines that need hook-blading in Assassin's Creed Revelations.

Re: Minecraft

I started a new world and played for a while. I noticed some of the new touches--yet more new chest sounds, the breaking of tools, the dripping water. Haven't noticed any actual changes to the game mechanics yet. I did notice shift-clicking doesn't move things to/from chests anymore.

Something else is that coal and iron are a lot more common, from what I can tell.

Keep in mind I didn't really play the 1.9pre versions, so this is all new to me.

Re: Minecraft

Ok, just updated it and now I have some greyish-dark green grass nearby in one of my newer worlds. Anyone else seen that?

[edit]
Oh, it might be for a swamp biome thing as the trees nearby have the same thing going on.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, that sounds like biome coloring to me.

Re: Minecraft

I probably won't be playing it until the server's updated. There's nothing new that I'm absolutely dying to try that can't wait until the server's back up.

It changes the colour of the water as well. Sadly, my main base in SSP has now become a hideous swamp when it used to be a nice vibrant green. I'm thinking of throwing some vines up and abandoning the place, pretend it was ruined in some horrible catastrophe.

Re: Minecraft

I seem to have run into a problem with my texture pack. Everything seems to load okay except the water texture, which for some reason seems to be stubbornly remaining in the default texture. I've no idea whats going wrong as its always worked in the past. This is going to require more research. Otherwise, I'm quite happy with it thus far. Though I forgot how lonely single player feels.


Oh, and the History of Minecraft vid they used to open Minecon has turned up on Youtube.

Re: Minecraft

Minecraft really needs an internal texturepack and mod browser. I HATE having to use those download sites to download what I need everytime. They tend to be like minefields. I can't even download my favourite one because of that.

Re: Minecraft

I just google it and see if it turns up a link on the minecraft forums.

Re: Minecraft

I just keep all my textures in a directory, then after an update drag and drop them manually into the jar using Winzip. Takes about a half hour.

Which is why I don't bother with the pre-releases.

Yeah, I know. I do that too, but it seems every modder uses those file hosting services, so you can never have a direct link as the download link is hidden by whatever service they use. I just wish there'd be an internal mod and texturepack updater, so that when you have your texture pack selected, it updates it when there's a new update.

Anyway, one of the first things I noticed about 1.0? Moon phases! We have moon phases, baby! I wonder if this means the wolves will howl at the moon when it's a full moon Werewolves can't be too far behind, can they? In fact, it would be rather neat if they turned into werewolves at night. They're pretty useless as it is, so I'd rather see them do something interesting like that.

Re: Minecraft

Making progress on the Titanic. It's slow, but then I'm also working slowly on it so that I don't get burned out on it. It's big enough that it shows up in the unzoomed c10t map. Last night I finished the floor. Many more of these to come.
