Re: Minecraft

I say bring it on! My main fortress is surrounded by a wall with lava channels carved down both the inner and outer faces (for spider proofing.) The lanky gits are free to run headlong into fiery death any time they like.
Apart from when they teleport past all that.

I've finally found myself a project! It all started when I thought, 'Hmm, wouldn't it be nice to have a giant Yin-Yang symbol floating in the sky?' (That took a lot of shearing sheep and killing squid). I then had the idea of placing my portals to the Nether and Aether in the respective dark/light side 'eyes'. That hit a bit of a snag when my Aether portal dropped my out on a tiny platform miles from anything, but I've since discovered how to swap out Aethers from different world saves.

Finally, I began work on my first 'castle' underneath the Yin-Yang. It's been fun but exhausting work, and its still a WIP, but here are the results so far:





Haven't done much with the ground floor (still living in a cave house atm) but the first floor garden is pretty much done, save for maybe a water feature.

If you ever going to follow just one "Let's Play" of Minecraft, let it be this one. It's hilarious:

Re: Minecraft

Has anybody seen the "Better Than Wolves" mod? Some of it is silly, but the bulk of it is jaw-dropping. Fully-functioning windmills, water wheels, elevators, cauldrons (for cooking large quantities of food), mechanical lights, saw mills, ropes for descending into caves, etc... I'm stunned by this one.

Re: Minecraft

I've seen it and I really love some of those mods. The guy apparently REALLY hates wolves though.

Re: Minecraft

There's some great stuff in that mod (and some not so great), but I've read that the guy who made it is kind of a jerk.

According to Notch, we'll be able to claim land in 1.8. He gave no suggestion how that will work or if it will prevent monster spawning, but it seems like it could lead to a huge change to the game (along with all the others).

Re: Minecraft

I think I'm most interested in seeing what the new blocks and mobs are. More materials to build with would be awesome. Claiming land would also be interesting.

I'm still curious about the Endermen. WILL THEY BE ABLE TO STEAL BLOCKS!?

The latest update with a new image:

The endermen might actually end up being called farlanders.

Re: Minecraft

I hope not, I like the name enderman. Petitions almost never work, especially online ones.

Re: Minecraft

They'll always be Endermen to me!

Anyway, I'd like to nominate the legal team over at Bethesda games for the 'Douchebags of ther Month' award.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, I heard about that. They think they own the word "Scrolls"? Really??

Re: Minecraft

I'll just navigate to the top of the page using the manual navigation bar, then look up the Dead Sea Parchment. But only if Bethesda hasn't copyrighted any of those words, either.

Re: Minecraft

Considering I've never worked with redstone circuitry before, I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew with my next project: A 4x4 Horizontal Piston Door in the floor of my castle, to go down to a basement level. I can find lots of tutorials on youtube for 4x4 Vertical Doors but none for Horizontal so I'll be winging it a bit.

I can post pictures of my work so far if anyone has any advice, that would definitely be appreciated.

Re: Minecraft

I did a 2x2 vertical double-door last night. It was actually easier than you'd think. I imagine doing a horizontal door isn't that much different except you have to run wire to each piston. Power seems to flow vertically just fine with stacked pistons but I don't know that it flows horizontally with adjacent ones.
