Re: Minecraft

So who's going to be updating to 1.3 on Weds?

Re: Minecraft

I gave it a whirl today. I didn't do much, just patching up the village in my SP world with the new blocks. I especially like the new sideways logs, the roof of my inn is now finally as I originally intended it! There are a few MP bugs that I noticed, such as mobs randomly melting through the floor, and on two occasions I took damage for no discernible reason, but nothing majorly screwy so far.

Sideways logs? Mind posting a screenshot? Sounds very interesting, not to mention very useful

Re: Minecraft

Yeah I saw that. The sideways logs were a last minute addition.

I kinsa like the cocoa pods. I got a texture pack that has them in green/yellow/red. So they add a nice bit of color to my jungles. Also made a couple of Enderchests, but damnit, my game must be cursed, because I keep clicking the wrong buttons by mistake and losing them.

What I really want to do is find a village and do some trading. But sadly, they seem to be few and far between in my SP world.

They work just like pistons, their direction is determined by the angle you place them from. I had been using jungle tree logs for the horizontal beams, but it looked really silly from above, so this is a very welcome addition.

I've done some trading with the villagers, but they haven't offered much of use yet.

Anyone up for giving this a go?

MineZ Is Zombie Survival Minecraft

I've been playing it solo for a week now, and it's really quite fun. You don't even have to install anything.

Re: Minecraft

I've been watching Paulsoaresjr's lets play series on Youtube. It looks like fun, but I'm not sure I'm such a big fan of PvP.

Neither am I really, I try to avoid it at all costs (though that's mainly because of how bad my mouse is, the left button keeps sticking ).

Re: Minecraft

I've seen some of Guude's MineZ videos and it looks interesting, but the lag looks very, very annoying. It's hard enough to kill zombies in SMP without taking damage, when they move as fast as a sprinting player it seems almost impossible.


Anyone experience the nether-void glitch? Sometimes when you enter or leave the nether the chunk doesn't load properly and you fall into the void, losing everything. I had heard about it, but I've used the nether a dozen times in 1.3.1 and didn't experience the problem until last night. I quit the game about a second before I died, I had highly-enchanted diamond tools on me that I didn't want to lose so I used NBTedit to teleport myself onto the roof of the nether and put myself into creative mode to punch a hole in the bedrock roof. Terrifying glitch, I can't believe this wasn't picked up by the snapshot players before release.

Re: Minecraft

At first glance you look at this game and go god those graphics are horrible and how boring. I gurantee if you give this game a try for more than a few hours you will be addicted. I run a you tube channel and have a 1o part series call giant castle check it out. Keep in mind this was done on xbox so we are much more limited on the tools and blocks used to build,but should give you a pretty good idea what you can do. Here is a vid. check out the other parts if you enjoy it. This is a older vid so there has been many more improvments since this.

side note if any one knows how to get the vid player on the fourm that would be a helpful tip for me

Re: Minecraft

Ben - Haven't encountered the void glitch. Hell, I haven't run into any of the glitches people have mentioned, so I've actually not bothered to update to 1.3.2.

Zero - Yeah, the default textures are a bit too simple for my taste too. Although to be fair, from a distance things like mountains and large buildings still look pretty epic. And thankfully the pc version lets you install higher rez textures.
But good job on the castle man. Looks great!

In others news, judging by the last couple of snapshots. 1.4 is going to be amazing!

This is one game that I am starting to think tells me that I am old; I look at this and, one on level, appreciate the simplicity, but on the other, I just ask myself, 'what is the appeal?'
