Check out the tunnel I made between pyramids, and look at the torches. You'll see what I mean. It's quite odd.

Re: Minecraft

I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that Minecraft is addictive and distracting people from their faith. The good news is that, even though it contains the walking undead and a hell dimension, it's not occultic like those evil Pokémons.

Re: Minecraft

Watched that with the volume down for all but a few seconds. Fundies make me stabby.

From the look of these people 'a few seconds' looks like about as much fun as they've probably ever had in their sad lives.

Re: Minecraft

With their kind of "logic," anything that doesn't involve praising Jesus is a "distraction."

Re: Minecraft

I read somewhere that there was a Mormon who helped design graphics for Doom. When Carmack (or Romero... Jesus I can't remember any of those people anymore) asked him if he was going to have a problem designing this, he said "No, because the game is about destroying those creatures. Besides, they're just cartoons." That's the most rational viewpoint I've seen on the subject of faith and videogames.

Now thats a healthy attitude.

I also have a lot of respect for the church up the street, whos planning a Halloween 'Trunk or Treat' event in their parking lot. Thats the sort of christianity I respect.

Anyway, gettign waaay off-topic with all this. So, heres the preliminary texture for the dragon. http://imgur.com/a/5PnQS

You can almost hear the sound of texturepackers scrambling.

Re: Minecraft

I'm assuming the pixel artist they hired doesn't work on Minecraft at all. The dragon texture fits in fine with everything that came before, I guess. I just always assumed the default textures were placeholders until they got around to doing some good ones. But perhaps they just rely on the texture pack community to do it now.

Re: Minecraft

Actually I think Notch does the artwork himself. And he freely admits hes no artist.

Re: Minecraft

It looks fine when you're playing in a small window, but fullscreen it looks like ass.

Re: Minecraft

Not bad, but I can always count on my favourite texture pack to have better ones, who've recently added different sheep, cows and chickens.

Same. But with bits and pieces stolen from other packs.

Re: Minecraft

I thought they stopped updating DokuCraft? (there were textures missing when I tried it out on 1.8)
