Re: Minecraft

Yeah, lots of deforestation in progress. But I always plant new trees to replace them so that I don't have to go very far.

Ok, has anyone had any success with Modloader? There's a minimap mod that I want to use, but I can't seem to get it to work. The problem is that my minecraft.jar doesn't have a META.INF file it wants you to delete, and when I start up Minecraft, the minimap doesn't show up, plus grass sides appear all grey when using Modloader likely because it wasn't installed properly.

I've done a bit of experimenting by letting Minecraft redownload the bin files, which then does have that file, yet it still doesn't work.

Oh, nevermind. Bypassed Modloader completely by inserting the files into the minecraft jar directly and it works perfectly now.

It's Rei's Minimap mod btw. Pretty awesome minimap:

Re: Minecraft

Built a small magic room under my tree and enchanted one of my diamond swords (Bane of Arachnids Level 1! WooHoo!)

Next goal is to head down into the Nether, find a castle, and grab myself a blaze rod so I can start brewing potions. So far though its pretty empy. During my one trip down I couldn't even find a Ghast. I guess it takes time for them to respawn.

Re: Minecraft

I ran across a magma cube a couple days ago. Scared the shit out of me as I hadn't seen one before. No blazes yet, though.

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.

I had to take a long break on the Yamato. It is mind-bogglingly huge and I ran out of resources several times and I spent way too much time carving out a harbor instead of working on the ship. I'll have to get back to it at some point. You're a bit farther along than I am with the keel.

That is amazing! Are you using wool for the hull? Because the sheep breeding in 1.0 would make that easier, especially considering baby sheep are now the same colour as their parents. Otherwise, you'd need to kill a lot of squid.

Ghasts are much rarer since the Nether update, I assume that magma cubes and blazes are using up their mob slots now which makes it less likely ghasts will spawn. The most I saw was two at the same time, which makes building in the Nether much easier.

Re: Minecraft

He's using wool for the hull and has a sheep spawner nearby. We haven't had to mess with breeding since we have spawners for everything, either in the zoo or people have their own personal ones they found.

Breeding might make colored wool more efficient, though. Does it work if you color an adult sheep and then breed it?

Re: Minecraft

Haha yeah, it truly is titanically huge! For everyone's curiosity, I've used real-world dimensions when plotting it out as I've detailed earlier in the thread. I've used the measuring tape mod to help me out with that, so I guess it appears even larger due to the real-world scale I used compared to actually scaling it down some. Though technically, it will be a bit larger in dimensions due to only having measured the length up to the bottom of the keel, not taking into account the size it would be when fully built up, but these are mere technicalities.


Yep, using red wool, Ben, and I hadn't thought about the breeding, but you're right. It should be much easier. Also, apparently sheep will be able to regrow their wool in the future. I've got one red layer to finish and then I'm starting the black layer. My plan is to have it look like it's sailing, with smoke and all. And Iceberg.

Gebirg, I actually haven't done anything to the underside. Something this huge is a bit problematic to work underwater with, so understandably there's nothing built up underneath. I'm working from the surface up.

If anyone would like to visit the work in progress, warp Titanic. Although currently the warps aren't active.

Brilliant! That's exactly what I did. Now I don't feel so bad. I also had the irritating task of filling in some of the area in the water surrounding the ship, as it went deep quite dramatically in some spots which made it difficult for me to lay out the keel.

I don't suppose there's anything else that can be dyed other than wool? Have they implemented a "paint" feature, where you can craft dyes on any other type of material? I'm reluctant to put red wool down at the waterline, as I'd like to try to make my ship somewhat explosion resistant from the beasties that sneak up on me.

The "keel" floor is almost laid. Once I get that down I'm going to start building the outer frame of the hull based on some cross-sections from the "Battleship Yamato: Anatomy of the Ship" by Janusz Skulski and I will post pics of the progress thus far. I'm still baffled by the size of this thing and hope I can finish it.

Re: Minecraft

Oh, I so wish there'd be paint to colour anything. I think that's one of the things that's sorely missing, at least for creative purposes. I kind of wish I could put down wood or anything and paint it the colour I want it. Seems like it would be simple enough, as we already have dye.

One of the advantages I realized I had was that I don't have to worry about endermen, being out in the middle of the water.


Btw as far as the dimensions go, it's approximately 236 meters long.

Apparently so. Though I'm not sure how long it takes for baby sheep to become adult sheep.

Re: Minecraft

Awww, ain't them cute sheep! Do we know if we have to breed them ourselves or does it happen automatically? I might have to enlarge my sheep farm.

Re: Minecraft

I think you have to do the breeding yourself... er... that doesn't sound right.
