just done my portal and it looks pretty cool do i need to make another one in the nether or will there be one there for me to get back?
Another portal will be created in the Nether, but there's a good chance that when you use that portal to exit the Nether it will create a seemingly random third portal, so be prepared for that. The first time that I exited the Nether, I ended up in a small dark cave and when I dug up to find where I was, I found myself under the sea about 100 meters from my original portal. I had to spend the next half-hour fixing the alignment.

Yeah Owain, I guess it is overly fiddly. But I'm an odd old bird. I like to tweek and play around with things. But when I get it the way I like it, I get very grumpy if I have to change it.

I'm no expert, but I've always been artistically inclined, so if there is anything I can help anyone with graphics wise, feel free to drop me a note.

Thanks Cutter. The thought is appreciated


Yeah, I'd likely be the same as you, but the fact is, the game gets updated often, I'd hate to put in work into something, only to have another update come along and make it outdated. So, I'd rather stay with something that is still in development. I'd love to see in-game updates for any mods or texture packs. I think that's probably one of the things he wants done.

Re: Minecraft

I see that Notch has slated 1.6 as a bugfix release, with the only new feature being the maps. He intends to clear out the bug queue, which is fine by me.

Apparently, he is currently the only person working on Minecraft. Doesn't look like they are in any particular rush to get to release.

Re: Minecraft

^ Which is good news if you ask me. We already have enough stuff and features in the game. I'd much rather see it all ironed out and working correctly than just having more added.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I'd like to see the network performance improved, which I know they've been doing, it could just stand to be better.

Although I know sometimes CraftBukkit is the cause of lag. Had to revert the server from #740 back to #733 last night because #740 was causing insane block lag.

You know I rather suspect they don't feel they actually need to do much else to the game at this point. They've already made so much money off it, all they need to do is literally clear up the remaining bugs and call it done.

Re: Minecraft

I forgot, Minecraft's official release date is 11/11/11. So, about 6 months out.

I think the main feature I want, which may not even be possible, is the ability to have moving groups of blocks. Such as building a ship on the water and being able to have it move around, perhaps along a set path.

Also thinking Notch abandoned the whole "adventure mode" idea.

Re: Minecraft

I'm not sure how somethign like that would work Robert without rediculous amounts of lag. I know Second Life has a limit on how many pieces can make up a drivable object for just that reason.

Personally I don't really want much. Maybe a secondary wood texture (or make it dyeable), a few more crops and growable flowers, gates for fences, coral, and maybe give the wolves a few more abilities and I'd call it good.

Re: Minecraft

I think adding a few more mob types and, as Cutter John said, making wood dyeable would pretty much seal the deal.

I'm still holding out hope for pigmen villages. I don't know what use they would be, but I still want them.

Yeah, I think with Minecraft's basic mechanics, massive moving objects would be quite difficult. There would have to be so much updating of things going on.

Sometimes I think it would be nice if some built structures were randomly distributed on the map, far away though, so you really had to go search for them. That would be difficult/impossible to do so it's not almost always the same structures and working with the "random" terrain generator though. Might just have to play MP for that.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, using dyes to color wood or glass would be great.

Also random ruins scattered around the landscape (with spawners and treasure chests) as well as additional rare plants. Give players a more incentive to go out and explore their world.

Re: Minecraft

Does the game have some way to fly? What about having balloons. As long as you hold onto them you can float. To make them you'd need a rubber material, which would have many other uses, such as the ability to make bouncy castles.
