I'd bring back the dynamic map if we had a dedicated server. As it is, if I turned it on now it would just crash all the time for lack of memory.

I did have big plans to come back but then just got busy elsewhere. When I'm less so I'll try again.

While I liked the dynamic map, I wouldn't mind just a daily or weekly rendered image or set of images. The ones you have linked in the thread on your forum are severely out of date.

I used to do that, although automating it was problematic because of the amount of memory it consumes. I'll see what I can figure out.

Re: Minecraft

I haven't played the game in months and realised yesterday that I haven't actually explored any new overworld terrain in my SP world since beta 1.8, meaning I'm missing a bunch of useful new materials. So I hacked my save to have large biomes and set out on an epic quest to find the missing materials and bring them back to my village. The very first thing I found, literally right next to the chunk boundary, was a jungle temple. Pretty neat, I thought.

Re: Minecraft

With the most recent snapshot (13w05a), any idea what the point of having 8 different heights of snow per block is? Of all the things that people have asked for as a feature, I can't say I've ever heard of this one.

Re: Minecraft

People have been asking to be able to craft single snow layers though. This just seems like a small extension of that.

Probably just to make the snow behavior a bit more "realistic." But then one wonders why you can't have multiple layers of dirt, too. And stone, and gravel, and sand, and...

Re: Minecraft

^ Yeah, exactly my concern. That would start making it too complicated IMO.

IIRC, snow layering like this has been in the code since alpha, but Notch chose not to implement it because it took away from the game's blocky aesthetic. It's strange that Jeb has decided to implement it now, but he probably did it because it was a simple addition that only took him a few minutes.

Re: Minecraft

I'm embarasssed to say its been a couple months since I played as well. I don't know, none of the recent updates and additions have really excited me like they used to.

Re: Minecraft

I haven't been reading posts lately in this thread, so forgive me if you guys already talked about this, but...

I read that Minecraft may be coming out for the Playstation but not likely for the new Wii U system, and...

wait...

Minecraft would be perfect on the Wii U. I haven't played one yet, but, from what I've seen, the system seems tailor made for that kind of game. Think about it. The tablet can show the inventory, so that doesn't need to block the lower portion of the screen. And how cool would it be to use the tablet to do crafting, instead of having the grid cover the screen...

I don't why Mojang and Nintendo don't realize just how perfect the Wii U is for Minecraft.
