Re: Minecraft

New updates are getting themselves a bit of a reputation. So far, 1.7_01 looks to have solved the major bugs, with the biggest one remaining being that if you right-click on a sheep with anything other than shears, the item disappears, which isn't that big of a deal. Then there's minor bugs like this:

Breaking obsidian with a wooden shovel will create pink/purple particles.
You've got to wonder how things like that happen.

Looks like I won't be updating until they fix those horrible bugs.

I would just like to point out that Mojang has a "Director of Fun" but not one fucking QA tester on staff.

Re: Minecraft

Remember kids, this is why before you update you back that sh*t up!

Hmmm, and they must have updated Bens video link. Looks epic to me.

Fortunately 7.1 was out by the time I rolled out of bed and downloaded the update. Apart from some scrambling to find a texture for the pistons, there've been no problems here. Loving the sheers. I can finally patch all those leaf gaps around my treehouse. Getting that 4th wool block is nice as well.

Good thing I downloaded a new game to pass the time til we're back online.

Re: Minecraft

Well, I built a massive rail system. Then I downloaded the newish mapping software, and see that my rail line could be cut in half but going the OTHER way around the mountain (let alone going though it. and considering how much iron and gold and reddust I used in a selfpowered rail system that works both ways and takes 2+ mins to travel. Might make some changes in time.

Hey, the server's still online, you just can't use it if you're on 1.7.

I'll just wait until Bukkit is upgraded, like usual.

Ah, shears are epic. No more planting trees in midair to eventually form a massive uber-tree to make a tree house, and now I can plant a shrubbery!

Re: Minecraft

Apparently overnight there was a 1.7.2 update. Naturally when I installed it the game crashed. Had to delete my bin folder and reinstall my texture pack and all that typical rah rah.

Haven't really noticed anything different, it might be a touch faster but that could just be all placebo.

Re: Minecraft

Because 1.7 just came out and people are already tired of it, here's two new pics from 1.8.

NPC village with giant mushrooms
Ruins with new stone brick blocks

Notch also said that there will be a new biome code, and that the giant mushrooms are for a new type of biome and the wont appear randomly in the world. I wonder if this means that we'll see the same sort of chunk errors that came about with the halloween update? Here's hoping that biomes are bigger this time.

Re: Minecraft

Looks good so far. I'm sure the actual release will be an unmitigated clusterfuck.

I might prune the server world once we get to 1.8, trim out the areas that were explored but nothing was built, so we can generate some new stuff.

I just started my world over again, since I screwed it up last time and didn't feel like fixing it. I haven't had the chance yet to try out the pistons, but I'm really wanting to see what can be done with them.

Really want to try that disappearing door that was shown in the video, and a couple other neat little things. Really wish I could find a decent server to play on without any griefing.
