I thought the 3-stronghold limit was already removed, a while ago?
Jeb said he was going to remove the restriction in the 1.0 release but he never did. It wasn't fixed in 1.1 or 1.2 either, so he either changed his mind or forgot about it.

Re: Minecraft

So true. I don't think I've ever stayed interested in one game for this long.

I think its the regular updates and new stuff that help keep things fresh.

I can't disagree more. They should update things, sure, but not all the time. Compile all the updates and release them maybe twice a year.

Craftbucket needs to take a lot of time to update stuff if Mojang constantly tweaks stuff

Not for much longer, considering the Bukkit team now work for Mojang and Bukkit is being rolled into the vanilla game in 1.3.

NEEDS TO BE REAL!

C'mon, they wouldn't be that hard to make.

It can be real. Each year ThinkGeek holds a vote to determine which product becomes legit. So cross your fingers.

Re: Minecraft

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to those of you that have been helping me out. Everyone is so nice! And of course thank you to RM for introducing me to the game and running the server. And not getting too mad when I try to push him off tall buildings.

I'm totally in awe of what everyone has done. I'm going back to IL in a week or so to visit and I can't wait to give my brother a tour of things.

I wish that the game wasn't quite so scary, though!

Sure is!



And don't worry. It gets less scary as time goes on. Hey at least on the server you don't die for good.

Re: Minecraft

I've been trying to mine, or rather just get over my fear of going underground. All the noises in the walls are not helping! Most stressful game ever!

Also, torches every two feet.

I had similar problems once. I had built tunnels everywhere and got resources through branch mining, and it got to the point where I had so isolated myself from monsters that I was terrified to face them. I was even scared to chop down trees in daylight in case a monster came out of a cave. It sounds stupid now that I think about it.

I resolved it by playing several of Vechs' Super Hostile maps, thereby forcing myself to confront monsters in large numbers. When you can take on a Creeper drop trap with stone tools and no armour, and not die in the process, you realise there's nothing to fear in vanilla Minecraft.

Except cave spiders, fuck those guys.




I've been meaning to get back on the server, but every time I try I find myself an update ahead of the server. Instead I spent the time finishing the renovations of my mob trap, now its exterior is made from stone blocks and coloured wool, which is much nicer than the dirt/cobble look it had before.

Re: Minecraft

Its just a matter of getting used to them. I've gotten tot he point where I'll go outside after dark just to kill monsters and rake up XP.

So have you upgraded your weapons and armor yet? A suit of good armor and an iron or diamond sword makes life a whole lot safe.
