Ok, now I'm P'd off. Just installed the latest update and now I can't even get to the menu. Black screen. :/ It actually broke Minecraft for me. This is 1.6.6.

Re: Minecraft

Odd. 1.6.6 works perfectly fine on both of my machines.
And the drop increase on lightstone is awesome.

Re: Minecraft

1.6.6 is working with a few minor issues for me. For one, animals are spawning much less frequently--I had to play for a good half an hour before I saw even a solitary cow. Collision detection when riding carts has also been screwed up. I get hurt when rounding corners where the tunnel is only one block wide. This is fine since I'm on peaceful mode, but it's going to be really irksome once I turn monsters back on soon.

Re: Minecraft

Ahh ok, it worked after I deleted the texture packs from my folder, otherwise it wouldn't start at all. Darn :/ Looks like I'll be using the default for awhile until the versions stabilize.

Re: Minecraft

Oh dear lord. This is the third time this week I've had to reinstall all my textures. This better be the last #$%@! update til 1.7!


"Removed Herobrine" NOOOOOO! WHY NOTCH? WHYYYYY?! *sniff* How could a loving God let this happen?! *sobs*

Oh. Sorry.

I e-mailed the list of new updates to Cindy. She'll be thrilled about the glowstone. Not to mention the bonemeal/grass thing. We had lunch today and she was complaining that the new change made wheat seed a lot harder to get.

Robert - The animal spawn may not be a new thing. There've been a couple of ocassions even during 1.5 when I decided to walk cross-country to harvest wool, and aside from a lone cow or pig, couldn't find a single animal spawn (ask Smooth or Cindy, they there listening to me bitch about it the last time ). So fluctuations in the spawning may be a normal part of the game.

Anyway, I'm donning my flameproof armor and wading into the Minecraft Forum to check the nerd rage levels. Wish me luck.

Re: Minecraft

And of course, my problems were due to not having patched the game using MCPatch. Yeah, duh! After I realized that, I kicked myself.

Re: Minecraft

Sorry, gotta say it.

"D'OH!!!"

No mass flame son the forum, so I guess we're good.

Oooh and it turns out we can use the bonemeal trick to bring tallgrass to our pre-existing world! Thanks Notch!

You can call me Johnny Grassseed from now on.

That could have something to do with the new animal spawning rules, the ones designed to stop them spawning around torches at night. I can't say that I've noticed fewer animals about, but I haven't gone searching for any either.

Collision detection when riding carts has also been screwed up. I get hurt when rounding corners where the tunnel is only one block wide.
I haven't experienced this either, but that's because my rail line doesn't touch any corners as they seem to impact the cart's momentum.

I have some bad news for you. Someone realised that clay is screwed up in 1.6 and that it can only spawn where the x and z coordinates are the same, which makes the conditions for an already rare resource almost impossible to fulfil. Notch is toying with the idea of releasing 1.6.7 tomorrow to fix that one issue, otherwise it wont be fixed for a long time.

Good luck! I went there the other day to download a texture-pack and found the most childish dispute I've ever seen on the internet. That site is like an internet version of The Lord of the Flies, but with no hope of rescue.

Re: Minecraft

I only use the forum to look up mods and textures and stuff, never to discuss with people. Do not toy with the Minecraft trolls!

Re: Minecraft

It's amusing though. Besides there's some neat discussion in the mod suggestion thread (on the odd chance the thread hasn't already been trollthrashed).

Re: Minecraft

Has anyone experienced seeing less spiders since 1.6.6? On Robert's server, I haven't been able to find any spiders at all.

Re: Minecraft

I actually thought a Herobrine function in the game would be pretty interesting, especially if it wasn't officially announced by Notch until Herobrine had left a few craters and mysterious Aztec-style ruins on your map.

Oooooo. Multiple competing Herobrines on a map.

Re: Minecraft

AHHH! Creepers sighted on the server! No spiders though.

Ben - Lucky! I only ever found one record in a dungeon. Not even sure where it is anymore. Wish I could do that 'skelton kills a creeper-get record' trick.

Owain - I wouldn't even know where to start on a thing like that. Now if they could create a cpu that would let MC run itself...

Itsnotlogical - Or the ultra rare "Herobrine was Here." block.
