Post by: Wade Cable on September 29, 2010, 07:15:48 PM
The internet is full of fetid dingoes' kidneys stuff about Minecraft, so I'll make a new thread for them. Mostly for videos about a man who burned down his house.

Yes, it's a pretty awesome game. Certainly a lot more fun than Blockland. I wish the multiplayer was sorted out properly though.

I'm guessing you guys think it is worth paying for?  So far I've only played offline. 
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on September 29, 2010, 11:15:16 PM
I haven't paid for it yet either. Honestly, if they ever implement dragons or better multiplayer I'd join up right away! There is so much promise to this game. The incentive is that if you pay now it's half the price you would pay when it goes Beta. Beta isn't too far away if you want to believe what they say out there.

For ten euros? Yes it's worth getting. The game is in alpha remember. There is a lot more to be implemented.

What would it take for us to have a Zookeeper Minecraft server?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on October 01, 2010, 12:25:21 AM
I don't think it takes too much at all. The basic server software opens up really quick. There are better servers for download with more features available. I would imagine whoever is hosting would want to have a spare computer to leave on all the time and the extra bandwidth to accommodate the traffic. You'd then have to open up the proper ports on your firewall and then give us your IP address.

I get 'Failed to connect to the server' and 'java.net.SocketException: Invalid argument', but I get those every time I try to connect to a multiplayer server. Apparently the OS X version has some lazy programming (and it might not even work in 10.4).

If you've ever heard me gripe about my own programming you'd know that writing Java code for Mac is a complete nightmare.

Well, Rae and I worked on a castle like structure, although the staircase to it is far more epic right now.

We got lucky and found a location with a lava waterfall and an overhanging cliff. I added an unnecessarily tall "observation" tower. Trev got a good start on the main building but we'll need a few more levels. Down below, in the mine shaft, I've started a desert biome so please don't destroy my pyramid.

Read more about the Halloween update: It's going to be an actual portal you walk through and it takes you into a world with a sea of lava, hardly any light, and more bad guy spawns. Something like Doom 3 I take it. Any distance you travel in Canada would translate to great distances in the real world. Words can hardly describe my excitement for this feature.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Wade Cable on November 11, 2010, 04:00:31 AM
Damn these new caverns to Canada. On my quest for diamonds I came across a tunnel with lots of ore and lava and tunnels that looked like they were digged. And then that connected to another huge cave, with even more ore (yay diamonds!) and lots of branches to other directions.
When I was down to my last steel pickaxe and ten torches I decided to go back. Only I didn't know where I came from.

After running to the same deadends for the billionth time I started picking up the torches and stayed only in the light, and finally found the route I came from. Maybe I should make signs...
Then I needed lava for obsidian, so I bravely went back to the cavern. But this time I couldn't find the little hole where I could get to the big caves. At that point I remembered the signs, and that I hadn't made them.
(Que another deadend-montage)

Finally I had some lava. And then there comes a suicidal pig and jumps in it. This game is infernal, even on peaceful for FSM's sake!
I'd hate to see a hardcore survival mode where you have to eat and drink, just to stay alive.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on November 11, 2010, 04:54:29 AM
Yeah those caves are monstrous! I leave a long trail of torches as breadcrumbs for my way back. Heck, when I can afford to be OCD with it, I don't explore anywhere without a minecart track in place. The update today was supposed to fix a lot of multiplayer issues. I finally fixed my secondary computer, so I'll put up the minecraft server again later today.

I just finished my Masonic Sacrificial Shrine on top of a hill. I set the five bonfires (star-shaped, of course) on fire, then activated the portal. Right then a cow decided to pants itself on one of the bonfires.

The story is that I was swarmed by zombies and I dropped some lava for my retreat. Consequently, I took out the entire Amazon with a great forest fire. We have a little seaside town setup but baddies still wander into the center.

I must have been on right before you guys.  I had logged on to Rae's server much earlier, so I was not near the settlement, and had to make a hasty shelter (complete with indoor pool).  In spite of it, a zombie still killed me in broad daylight.  I respawned in the settlement and checked it out.  I was on around 11.

So, there's a rather spacious emergency shelter complete with crafting table built into a hillside somewhere.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on December 17, 2010, 04:15:27 AM
I started the glass enclosure. There are building codes to follow, so there won't be excessive glass where it isn't necessary. It's those pretentious tree huggers that claimed our beautiful highway is an eyesore in their natural wilderness.

Yeah, I decided to fill it all in because having creepers and whatnot drop down and ruin everything was a pain. Thanks for adding the signs and smartening up the place.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: SMG141 on December 20, 2010, 08:37:25 AM
Rae, if you want to know why there's a long tunnel underground to the Coastal Cross station, it's part of my planned redstone switch system to allow people to either go to Keet Central or stop midway at Coastal Cross (So they can go on my planned rail systems to Trev's Mansion or The Keep), which I'll complete properly once the Blopantville Station is done. I'll also do the same kind of thing from Keet Central, if you get what I mean.

Never mind the library, FSM and I discovered a rather annoying 'addition' to Blopantville:

(http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/6736/wattr.png)

For some reason, there is now an island just randomly there. Everything in the way is gone, including part of the highway and that brick tower that was once there. You can see part of the tower still floating in the air. Neither FSM or I know how it got there.

Rae, is there by any chance a way to load previous saves of the map?

The entrance is above ground.  You have to cross two bodies of water...well, I crossed two bodies of water to get back to the spawn point.

I called it The Block, but only to make sure we were talking about the same thing.

The only thing I can think of now that I'm thinking about The Block is calling it Jenny's block. But you did see it first so name it what you want. Meteor Island is snazzier than "Jenny's block" anyway.

Server is back up. I don't really know what the problem is. My hard drive tests said the drives were OK. I dusted the CPU in hopes that it was an overheating issue. Its operating off of the backup I made, however the meteor island is still there. This time, it decided to give it a glacial theme.

I'll need Trev's permission before I show it, because its pretty obvious where someone's secret building is. That's an idea, obscure your secret buildings with trees so they can't be found by satellite photography!

I think there are actually three secret locations.  There's the library, and there should be two emergency shelters.  FSM's, and one I made several weeks ago before I was killed and respawned in the center of our built world.

Actually, I have no qualms with releasing the map.  I think it's fine that the secret locations become known.  I would just ask that the "secret" locations be left off of any transportation systems.  Make sure the trek to see them involves a little bit of danger and time investment.

Question 2: Is it possible to keep monsters out of an area?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Trevillian on December 30, 2010, 01:43:21 AM
1) there's a layer of bedrock at the bottom of the map that you can't go through, but sometimes there are gaps in the layer that will allow you to go through the bottom of the map.  You probably don't want to do that.

2) it used to be that if you sufficiently lit an area, then monsters would not spawn in it at night, but might wander into a lit area during the night.  With the beta release, it appears that monsters can spawn anywhere at night.  When I was building the library, I had to kill a few monsters that spawned in the main room.

The lighting rule should still apply. Like the railroad never spawns baddies. The trouble is very large rooms take a lot to light properly.

For the record: NORTH is the left side of the overhead map. The top of the map is EAST. The furthest known location East is the ice village. The furthest known location West looks like lil' Americana,

Hi Dex!

Hi FSM! :)

(What's up with the numbers naming? Naming numbers? Numbers as names.. You get what I mean. :P
Long time no visit. Sadly. )

On a wholly different note: The three players that may or may not be haunting your servers on and off are:

Mascolls (ME!)
T33P0L (my brother)
and
Bjokar (My good friend Bjorn)

Just to forewarn you so you don't get startled by the newcomers.

Also, we'll keep out of your hair. I was in and checked your epic buildings just now and you've done one helluva job! We however tend to play survivors and try to live off the land. So we'll find a remote spot and try to survive. It's what we do. In real life as within games.

It seems to be holding up well as long as the roommates don't watch damned Netflix movies. We have roads to all the major places of interest. I suggest taking a look at the map to get you started.

With two servers up another idea (if you get tired of the Nether ;) ) would be to have one build server (e.g. the one Raelus is running now with infinite building materials) and one survival server (e.g. no Op powers for anyone).

Just.. eeh.. Throwing that out there..

I had a little bit of delay yesterday. Otherwise it was ok.

We had a major infestation of creepers  in the Blockhead village so about three of them went of every five minutes or so, don't know if that might have had anything to do with it..

Falling from cloud level out of your inaccessible construction site in the middle of the night and dying from the hordes gathered outside - especially if you fall into the open cavern system beneath - gets old fast when your site's as far from the spawn point as just about anything else.

Not that it won't be lovely when it's finished, but...

Not that it won't be lovely when it's finished, but...

Actually, for me that's part of the charm. Well, the inaccessability from the spawnpoint was mostly a logistics decision - We didin't want to be in the way of something else. But the danger and hardship actually makes it more rewarding when you finish building something. :) Besides, as it is now we've pretty much secured the area - as long as you don't venture out at night and beware of creepers during the daytime you'll be ok. We've slowly entering the iron age, and with a full iron armour and some loafes of bread you can survive most hardships.

When all of the construction is done the real adventure begins - scouting out and lighting up those cave systems.

Luckily we have the local demigod (op) Steve (demigod of unfortune) to watch over us. ;)

Those are single vertical lines of fence posts. They can't be laid down directly on top of each other. Start from the top by laying a block  right under where you want post, place, then destroy the block. Proceed to the space underneath and repeat.

What server are you on?  If you're on Rae's server, there quite a few places to hide out near the spawn point, very lavish accommodations in some cases.  If you're on Keet's server, and I'm not sure how you would be, then you probably need God's help.  Even that might not be enough.

If you're past all that, log on to our minecraft multiplayer server

You're on Rae's server. From here it's up to you. Either you ask someone to make you a god (Op) and make big shiny things OR you decide to just try and survive, in which case the blockhead village south of the spawn point (clouds move north) is one place that is built from HONESTLY MINED stuff and a nice place to stay safe during the night OR you make up your own fate and head out into wilderness (south east or south west should be pretty empty). Have fun!

I have created a mighty tunnel. Spanning from my buried hut to just outside of town. I have the entrance buried right now, but it's marked by two torches on the sides, and two above the entrance. It is just a start. I intend to make it look all nice later on, maybe have it span to other villages.

Feel free to spruce it up.


I seem to have lost the path that leads to the entrance near town.

I'm going for a columned Greek/Roman theme, so yeah.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: DustinD on January 09, 2011, 07:29:50 PM
Tee, and I went a little overboard. Feel free to alter the stuff, just leave the tunnel entrance alone, and the little stone hut I made right outside of town, next to FSM's house. Feel free to build ontop of it, though.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Teepool on January 09, 2011, 09:23:15 PM
Yeh we might remove some of that stuff we just built, abit to much fortress look.

Anyways, since the amount of villagers have increased I would like to present the idea of expanding the village area slightly more south where there already is a huge drop. Make room for some additional huts aswell as perhaps a townhall, pork farm, in village tree farm (for those moments ur desperate for wood).

Do also note the passage way to the SE mining camp area. There is nothing built yet, just bridges to it, so I would respecfully ask people not to build on the terraformed mountain with torches all over it.

Thank you

that is all.

I need to lodge a complaint: People aren't replenishing the public resources. There were no less than two full stacks of iron last night, and I go to make a shovel a half hour ago, and every drop of metal and ore is gone. That includes the bars of gold, which I am told are useless for making tools, weapons, and armor.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on January 11, 2011, 12:43:36 PM
The iron and other metals has been moved down two floors into the secure storage cellar. Besides that, the village is a collective. Everyone is working for the benefit of the village. If you notice that we are running low on something that you are using, go out and bring back some more. No single person is responsible for gathering resources.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: DustinD on January 11, 2011, 12:47:57 PM
There's a secure storage cellar? I spent a little while searching the town thinking they were moved for whatever reason and didn't find this room.

The only reason I complained is because I spent a good chunk of time hunting down materials for the town, like I tend to do when I mine and am not trying to get water buckets.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on January 11, 2011, 01:08:54 PM
How many buckets do you need? One should be enough since they are reusable.

To get to the secure cellar you have to go down two flights of stairs from the smelting wall.

And I have three buckets of water. I had four more, but then lava got me. Either way the lack of metal blew my plans to dig up a ton of sand. At least, for the next hour or so.

There's a new stair leading down from the blacksmith - That leads to the secondary storage. From the secondary storage there's a stair down to a metal door controlled by a lever* - In there you'll find a very organized storage room.


* Side note: CAN WHOEVER KEEPS REMOVING THE FRIGGIN LEVER PLEASE STOP DOING THAT!? IT WORKS. IT'S CONNECTED WITH REDSTONE UNDER THE DOOR. Never mind, it was apparently a water leak that had reached the lever. My mistake.

....nope still lots of wool. in fact they just added dyes so you can change the color of the wool.

it was just somewhat of a bother to have to give myself a ton of flowers, and a ton of wool, then use the flowers to make red dye. then use the red dye and wool to make red wool. I wish i could just give myself a ton of red wool.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Dex on January 15, 2011, 08:29:33 AM
One way of getting a little more bang for your buck with dyes is to actually dye sheep before you shear them, since dying a sheep has the chance of dropping up to three wool. Plus multicoloured sheep are FUN!

Is there some sort of trick to getting the "Classic" Minecraft working? I'd like to try the game out before I actually spend money on it, but I'm just getting a black screen on the free version. I suppose it might be due to those server issues that were mentioned for minecraft.net, but I thought someone here might have some insight?

Make sure your Java is up to date?

Try a different browser? (Chromium - at least, this daily version - can't run it for some reason. Safari has no trouble.)

According to the wiki, they were taken out and put back in when the game went beta. They're supposed to only spawn in the bottom 16 layers but glitch on ice biomes so they spawn a lot closer to the surface, as I found out yesterday.

That sounds more like a problem with your minecraft installation. You could delete your local minecraft files and redownload. Check the minecraft forums for tips on that. Make sure to backup your singleplayer worlds beforehand. Also, try from another computer and see if the problem persists.

gmapuploader.com (http://gmapuploader.com)
Makes any image work like a google map. And if you learn to use the code properly, you can add labels and the like to the maps you send in.

If you can find Fort Cacti then you're welcome to try it on mine.

& you can feed the wolves in order to heal them but they don't have a depleting hunger bar or anything. You can tell when they need healing by looking at their tails. If it's up then they're fine but if it's down then they're almost dead. Whimpering is also supposed to be a sign of poor health but SMP is bugged so they do it even if they're in the best physical shape. 'Tis very annoying.

They also like to kill sheep. I've come back to the fort multiple times to find a wild wolf has spawned and left me a nice big pile of wool.

There's also a weird bug where if you fire an arrow straight up so that it hits you, your wolves will kill you and then greet you with love when you respawn. & yet apparently wolves don't usually go after things you shoot with a bow.

& that's pretty much all you need to know about wolves. I have saved you a trip to the wiki. Aren't I kind.

Not all fanfiction is evil, just the majority.

I'm mostly saying that because my 15-year-old self may have attempted to re-write Dragonball GT to be less stupid, while avoiding all the pitfalls of your stereotypical fanfiction with the exception of the occasional bad piece of grammar and spelling. I never got a bad review but despite that, I'm never going back to FF.N simply because everyone loses out in the end when it comes to fanfiction.

Although I do still write... (http://payneful.co.uk/mercs/)

Yep, took the # off of modFlyEnabled, since it was the only mod I wanted to turn on. I am not unfamiliar with mods, but it is not something I do regularly and have not done recently. Thus the caution in going over the instructions carefully and watching a couple of vids on it. I'm going to go and double check that I have the latest version and that it is compatible. Then I will walk myself through the installation again.

The first thing I did this morning was to put the # back on and see if that got rid of the error message, it didn't.

Oh lucky me! I understand that dungeons are a rare find in Minecraft, but I built my first little hovel in a single world right on top of one.

(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o260/stillwind/Minecraft/WTF.png)

I'll be going in there to clear it out and explore it, as soon as I find some iron for better armor and weapons. I've been told that you must place torches on either side of the little zombie generator to stop them from spawning. I'm very curious to see what is in the chests.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Keet on May 20, 2011, 04:41:50 AM
When I came across my first one, I took a different approach; I tunneled below it a destroyed it that way. Then it was just a matter of picking off the little fracktards one by one.

You could also fill the room with sand until all the mobs are smothered to death. Or you could add water and turn it into a mob trap for resources.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Building Maintenance on May 20, 2011, 04:22:54 PM
The water trap idea isn't a bad one, that is sort of how I discovered the dungeon. The zombie groans in my hovel were very loud and digging around the room turned up nothing. In my hovel I have a nice pool I intend to glass over as a nice water feature floor, I dug a hole in the bottom and it opened onto the room below. I later plugged it up, so I could see what was in there. It would make a nice feather resource in the futue.

I've also considered walling the area around the spawn generator in glass, to have a little zombie zoo.  :wink:

We are all the pedophile imps of Satan for playing Minecraft, we are destroying America and it's all Obama's fault.

Destroying our economy!
Minecraft teaches children that you can create your own tools by combining ingredients instead of the American way of ordering online or going to Walmart. It teaches children they can farm their own food instead of teaching them the American way of going to McDonald's. It teaches them to waste huge amounts of time on making their own buildings instead of the American way of buying a house with borrowed money! It teaches children to be creative instead of watching commercials on television! All this clearly damages and ultimately destroys the American economy! It can be no coincidence that this game was created while Obama is in office!

Post by: Building Maintenance on June 06, 2011, 04:56:26 PM
I have an experiment I'd like anyone with the Zombe Mod Pack to try. (FSM?)

I recently reinstalled it after the latest upgrade and went to test it out in one of my single worlds. I was flying happily along and went to land on a mountain and passed right underground! I could fly through the solid ground like it was air and could see all of the caverns and my excavations as I flew. It is a strange experience and as I found out, dangerous too.

I'd like someone else to try this to test my theory about why this is happening. Last Friday as I was playing one of my project worlds, my power supply fried. After replacing it my save for that world was corrupt and although it was in the save file, it didn't show up in the game.  The resolution for that problem was to DL MCEdit and use it to remove my character from where he was buried and place him in a safe area. There is a strong similarity between the view when flying underground and the view in MCEdit and I wondered if there is a relationship.

Let me know if anyone else is experiencing this phenomenon.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Keet on June 07, 2011, 08:40:11 AM
Without using MCEdit, I didn't notice anything unusual.

One of the mods in the zombe pack is the "Cheat mod" which among some of the options available will allow you to see through walls or mountains. Could that have something you activated?

Sorry to say, VG, but I had to destroy your rave lights. See, any redstone contraption that can't sit idle will suck up the server's cycles. As soon as I destroyed it, everything started acting right again.

In other news, I figured out how to make a working elevator again. The last update stopped the use of doors on pistons. They just pop off. Trap doors work, so I modified the design. Through much head scratching I made this:

I'm a rebel. But really I only spawn things I either couldn't find quickly, (I haven't seen a blasted slime in a long time), or things that are a pain in general to get. I try to keep a tally of stuff I do spawn in and I incinerate stuff to balance out what I bring in.

To be fair, 2000 blocks isn't that much - a day's jaunt out past the arctic village - and once you're out a bit further than that all you'll have is strips of explored territory and a lot of ungenerated fresh emptiness between.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on September 08, 2011, 07:23:06 AM
I would be all for starting a brand new server map. But if we were to do that we'd have to get everyone to agree to it. I know them Detulux place have built one monstrous village.

As long as you release the old map to us in the form of a download. I'd be rather miffed to not have access to the work we've done on the Detulux village.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on September 08, 2011, 09:12:28 AM
I vote against making a new map. Way too much invested in this one. If anything, we can change the spawn point to a well unexplored region. A Minecraft map can very nearly be unlimited in every direction. We just need to establish where the old map ends and where the new map begins. Also, the furthest anyone has traveled (Bob excluded) is not that far in terms of minecraft maps.


-edit
An idea would be to have Keet set the spawn point to some random location in secret and let the rest of us figure out which direction the "Old World" is.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Wade Cable on September 08, 2011, 12:54:42 PM
I'm not against a new server, but I'm not against the spawn point change either.

Could we get an updated map of the server, by the way?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Psi Baka Onna on September 08, 2011, 04:30:00 PM
I wouldn't be against a new map so long as there was a way to protect the Detulux village, like copying & pasting it into the new map via world edit. If that plan works out then it'll mean you guys could keep some of your favourite projects as well like the pixel art and so forth.

I wouldn't complain about a move of spawn point either though, as I imagine it'll be less hastle.

Of course either way it'll mean Rus will have to re-dig his tunnel to the spawn but that'll be good for finding diamonds, cocoa beans, abandoned mine shafts & horrific poisonous spiders of death...

Me and Rae, as the first explorers, name the ocean east of the new Spawn point the "Sea of Belmont".
God damn that's huge! We need some lighthouses to guide us.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on September 17, 2011, 06:13:01 PM
I continue my journey through the majestic Eastern sea, blindly hoping to find the glorious Old World of yore. I've been leaving lighthouses on the few islands that I can find resources at. That ocean is much, much bigger despite what you think already. It takes all daylight to reach an island and I haven't come across what you'd consider a "continent" yet. I did stumble upon an underground ravine. Also, I can see the makings of an abandoned mine when the renderer is slow and I can see through the bottom of the ocean. I haven't come across an entrance yet, so that will be an adventure for another day.

-edit
I'm having trouble finding sheep, so if you can shear some and make beds at the rest stops it would be much appreciated. If anyone else wants to join in, it's a non-op journey so no flying or spawning items. I would suggest not trying to use coordinates either. That would spoil the fun of going in the entirely wrong direction! Take and leave items as necessary at the rest stops.

I've found an excellent source for onyx if you guys want it. Visit Smasho's Natural Wonderland, located in the mines under the spawn point. See Smasho's Lake of Fire, The Smashole pit of mystery and Smasho Falls. Go all the way down and there's an onyx spawning point. In the near future I'll put a chest down there and leave the diamond pickaxe Keet gave me so people can mine it if they want.

The chest and the diamond pickaxe are in place as well.

Were you tripping balls? I did that too! It's not so great.

Also, I'm afraid of sleeping. The wiki says there's a bug that mobs can spawn inside, if they get two squares away from your bed, ie. if its next to a wall.
So I put the bed in the middle of a room, elevated and all, with no luck.

So last night while I was playing, my computer spontaneously shut down. Then it took me hours to get it to properly start up again. It's happened before - usually when I left Minecraft running but walked away from my computer long enough to let it go idle.

Has anyone else had a situation like this? It worries me, because I don't want to tempt fate and have it shut down again and not be able to get it restarted.

In all seriousness, the game is conspiring against us. I tried making a new Canada gate into the promised land from the nether on Sunday. The other end spawned in a spider dungeon. Coincidence? I think not! :P

(The path to the gate runs off of the one to the tree house if anyone wants to try looting the dungeon/exploring the cavern before I get around to it. I didn't have time to do much besides making the gate so it's still unlit at the moment. Just leave me either some seeds or iron as payment for finding the thing  :thumbup:)

I put a map together of the zookeeper seed despite not knowing how much is actually the seed & how much is randomly generated. Hopefully this'll give you a rough idea of what it'll look like: linky (http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh153/psi_baka_onna/zookeeper.png)

Interesting features include 3 villages (although one wasn't so much a village as a random Smithy in the middle of a desert)
some interesting floating islands
lots of mountains & swamps
a lava lake that set the surrounding forest on fire.

If this is actually useful then I'll put together a map for some of your other seed suggestions for comparisons if you want me to..

Edit: I started the Blopant one and so far it looks like a continent surrounded by ocean. I'm thrilled by this as I plan on making a Tortuga style city but I know some of you weren't too fond of the ocean in the new area on the current map.

Edit 2: Here's the blopant seed (http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh153/psi_baka_onna/blopant.png)

Couldn't see any villages on this one but there were a couple of ravines & another forest fire causing lava lake. Some of that water could be turned into the old world preservation area if you don't like oceans.

I'm disappointed. I loaded up the smasho seed expecting to spawn inside a dungeon or something but instead it's just an epic mountain range/canyon. Honestly, Smasho, you're destroying expectations here. :P

Here's the smasho seed map (http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh153/psi_baka_onna/smasho.png) and a pic of the spawn area. (http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh153/psi_baka_onna/smashospawn.png) It's full of mountains & swamps. No villages as far as I could see though, just rocky areas.

I did a test & it turns out the whole of these maps is generated by the seed rather than just the spawn area so they work as a comparison. Are there any other seeds you guys might want to have? I might see what belmond generates later.

After the Green Mile area I discovered turned out to just be a very large island, not the diverse continent I had hoped for, I decided to extend the Nether Highway again. Another 4 or 5 minute sprint through the Nether, beyond the Green Mile portal, will take you to the Strangeland's portal. I think this is what I was looking for, a strange new continent ripe for exploitation. The geography in the area right around the portal is some of the stranger stuff I've seen in over a year of exploring, diverse, dangerous and ripe for the picking.

So if you're bored, if your seeking new lands and adventures, head to the nearest portal and sprint on over.  :yess:

I found that I've been too addicted so I took an extended break from Minecraft, cold-turkey. I've been getting headaches and am very gassy so I might have to get back on soon. Honestly I wanted to get started on some programming projects and it's been a success so far. Once I get another one of my friends hooked up with Minecraft it will be lively once more.

Looks like we all took a break at the same time somehow?

Yeah, BM and I did log on for a couple of hours this past weekend, during which time we did see Odd Bob pop on. That session ended badly when I misread my clock and we started a long overland journey through undeveloped lands late in the afternoon. We were unable to get back to our base in time, BM got killed by a spider, and I spent the night on a hastily-lit hilltop, fending off the hordes of evil. I kind of felt like the hobbits on Weathertop, except that the Nazgul kept exploding.

That was my first MC session in weeks, and it was fun, despite BM getting killed twice (shortly before his first death I heard over Skype: "I wonder if this water is deep enough for me to jump into..."). I've been really busy lately, though, and it looks like I'm going to remain quite busy through the month of May. I do want to see if I can hop on every now and then, though. I'm in the middle of another big project that I would like to finish one of these days...

Hey BM, how do I find your Strangeland in the nether?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Building Maintenance on June 16, 2012, 10:13:14 PM
Run for about 12 minutes.

Actually, if you head towards Keet's portals down there and then keep going past the Ocelot Acres portal, you will see signs leading you to the Green Mile portal. Just past that is a small tunnel that eventually leads to the Strangeland's portal. It is a long trip, even by nether standards. The coordinates for the Strangelands Bed & Breakfast are as follows:

X: 7057.156
Y: 73.62
Z: 10689.15

There are supplies in the B & B that you and anyone else are welcome to.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Smasho on June 17, 2012, 12:14:13 AM
But not the portals that lead to platforms in the middle of the ocean, right? I'm pretty sure Keet made those...

I followed the world's longest Nether path this morning to Keet's "Nowhere Lounge". It was...mildly irritating. Especially since I hadn't packed any food and was essentially dead by the time I got there.

The first phase of Smashoview Estates has been completed. We build luxury bungalows on the mountaintops surrounding Smashoview Valley so each of our residents has an unparalleled view from their multiple viewing decks.

[View may include other Smashoview Estates homes, creepers and other undesirable sights]

Our secluded location means that your beautiful getaway is convenient to absolutely nothing. To reach us from Linguine in the Nether, simply follow the signs for Ocelot Manor. From the Ocelot Manor manor portal, follow the signs to Green Mile. At Green Mile, pick up the signs to Strangeland. We are just past the Strangeland portal, a short 15-20 minute walk from Linguine.

Please feel free to come visit beautiful Smashoview Estates - A Nice Place To Look Down On Everyone Else.

I might have found a solution to our end world situation, and an interesting one at that. If you delete the "DIM1" folder from the server it will reset The End. Not the "DIM-1" folder because that is the nether. Side effect is that the Enderdragon will come back. :yikes: Someone else can have the glory of killing it this time. There have been no building projects in The End so noone would mind it getting reset. I suppose you'd want to backup the server before you do this, of course.

I started a creative game and spawned a bunch of badguys in the End. The Blazes made a noble effort to fight back but the Enderdragon and Wither had flawless victories.

Then I screwed around with the Anvil and started naming all my items with innapropriate names. "Mithril Donk" for instance.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on November 20, 2012, 10:30:44 AM
Hello again, chaps. Been a while!

I've been playing a bit of MC recently on 1.4.4., and I've noticed that my GPU is running a bit hot. And by "a bit hot" I mean "really freaking hot." My GPU runs hot anyway because my computer sucks and my graphics card isn't the greatest (NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450). In previous versions of MC, my card would get up to around 80-85 degrees. With 1.4.4., though, it very quickly hits 95 and the fan goes into afterburner. I haven't seen it go over 95-96, but mind you this is with the fan at 100% and sounding like a jet engine.

I was just wondering if anyone else saw an increased load on their systems/GPU with the latest version... or if I just have a sucky system.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on November 20, 2012, 12:25:41 PM
No problems here, though I can't say I ever monitor my temperatures.

One problem I have noticed is random torch particles popping up everywhere. They already have a new update down the pipeline so hopefully that will resolve it.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Odd Bob on November 20, 2012, 04:04:42 PM
Hopefully I'll be back on the server today and I can report back with my even less impressive graphics card - either or both of the discrete GTS 330 or the inbuilt Intel GPU. But I have no temperature monitoring on the go and if the Nvidia's been running for a while it's quite normal for the top couple of rows of the keyboard to have a temperature somewhere around the melting point of boron.

Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on November 21, 2012, 03:56:35 PM
Yeah, I don't get it. It's not like the GTS 450 is a bad card--it's not a great card, but it's definitely not a bad card. My computer is getting long in the tooth now, though, and I've had problems with graphics cards before. I bet I've got an airflow issue.

I've just got to pony up for a new system, I think, and when I do I'm getting a monster case fan and an external fan trained straight on my graphics card. Or maybe I'll just go with a liquid nitrogen bath. Heh.

The good news is that even though the fan sounds like a jet engine after playing for about 20-30 minutes, the GPU temp doesn't actually go above 95-96. That is within safe operating temperatures, so I suppose I'm OK for now. If it starts heading for 100, though, then I'll most likely be Minecraftless for a while.

Although the wiki doesn't say so, Cartograph G (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/153066-cartograph-g-map-your-world-minecraft-14/) can generate map images for the current version of Minecraft. Our world is probably very huge right now so we will have to break it up. You can feed Cartograph G coordinates so it only generates a map for a certain area.

Minecraft would just die under Microsoft leadership.

I'm not so sure, there's probably a 60% chance it could be the best possible result for Notch, his team and the players. I've heard so many cries of "Oh no, this is the worst thing ever" after corporate buyouts that I now tend to watch and see. I remember people proclaiming that D&D was doomed when Hasbro snatched up Wizards of the Coast (fter it, in turn, acquired TSR), yet years later then brand is going from strength to strength.

If this deal goes/as gone through, then all we can do is wait and see, but I know Minecraft did big numbers on the XBox 360 and perhaps MS want to look that down a bit tighter for the time being.

Of course, that's a pretty big if, considering MS's history.

In general terms, when it comes to Game development MS have been a bit hit and miss, but with a property like Minecraft I feel they'll continue to do it service, especially as they already have the developers of the XBox version to tap into if there is a drift from Mojang. They may not have the track record for innovation, but the 360 version was pretty effective. Plus when it comes to games, MS have been pretty good at ongoing support for their popular releases, although I wonder how long it will take to see a micropayment system drop into place and what it could apply to.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on September 16, 2014, 10:44:14 AM
Feels kind of weird that I saw this news on CNN this morning before I had the chance to plug myself into the intarwebs.

I must admit that I was a bit shocked when the news first hit the tubes. But I've thought about it, and I don't think this is necessarily the end of the world. MS paid that much money because they expect MC to continue making them money, which means that it is in their best interest for it to continue succeeding. That much is obvious. The real question, I suppose, is will MS pull their usual committee-driven idiocy and shoot themselves in the foot here.

In my mind, the end of development on Minecraft is not the worst possible outcome. In fact, I think it is the best possible outcome. Hear me out for a moment. I've said before that I just want to see a finished game, and this is truly how I feel. I don't want more features. I would like to see features that are not yet finished brought to completion, of course, but I'm honestly a little tired of new features being added before previously-added features have even been finished (in the sense that they a) work properly and b) have reached their logical conclusion--for example, doors and fences now being craftable from different types of wood). I would be perfectly happy if we saw no new features, but instead got completed features and bug squashing until the game resembled something that is actually finished. The current cycle of development means that we are constantly playing an unfinished game, and, while that has not significantly diminished my enjoyment, it does prove to be the occasional nuisance. And think of what a finished game would mean--all those mods that are always one step behind the current version? Everything would be caught up, and the mods could actually start pushing ahead without having to worry about compatibility issues.

So, for me, the end of development would not be the worst possible outcome--that would be continued development with the addition of micropayments for each update. Never mind what we are "entitled to" as players. Introducing payments like this would immediately begin to segregate the community into those who are willing and able to pay for updates and those who are not. And I suspect we would lose a lot of the community (granted, there are certain sections of the community I wouldn't mind losing). I don't think MS will do this, but it is my greatest fear.

BM and I were discussing this last Saturday, and we both agreed that MC is the best money we've ever spent on a game. Whatever happens in the future, I've definitely gotten my money's worth. With any luck, MS will mean more of that in the future.

Like BM, I'll play until I hate it and move on, but not before buying beers for everyone here of course.

Awesome!

I can relate to this; I'm always seeing stuff in the real world and thinking, "I have to build that in Minecraft."

Now if only I had the time....

^Talk about having time...

Time is the one item I seem to have less of the older I get.....  :sadnod:

I've found that the amount of time I have is inversely proportional to the amount of money I have. Back when I had oodles of time, I was broke. Now that I am no longer broke, time doesn't seem to be interested in hanging out with me anymore.

I saw a picture of Chand Baori (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chand_Baori), a stepwell in India and thought that it would be fun to build in Minecraft.
I was wrong. I think I dug too deep, again, but it looks quite cool.

You might find it somewhere on the server.

Looks cool! Now you have to fill it with water!

At least MC water is blue as opposed the green water at Chand Baori .... :o

Wade: That looks awesome!  :thumbup:

I'll have to look out for that when I'm on the server... which is not often, unfortunately.

And most of the time I get these days is spent on building myself a little house by the coast. One of these days I will need to get back to and finish my main build...

I'm a bit relieved, but still skeptical. Also, a movie?
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on October 27, 2014, 03:22:10 PM
Yeah, I've heard about the Minecraft movie, and that has definitely had me scratching my head, especially since it's supposed to be live action. Then again, I was puzzled by the idea of a Pirates of the Caribbean film, and that turned out to be pretty good in the end.

I also like how he talks about "meeting the needs of the community." I'm optimistically interpreting this to mean that we are eventually going to get a finished game, instead of an endlessly sprawling behemoth that introduces a raft of new bugs for every piece of new content and leaves ideas and concepts lying half-finished by the wayside.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: raeleus on October 27, 2014, 10:04:51 PM
The article brings up some weird possibilities, but I do agree it's reassuring. A live-action Minecraft movie is absurd. I would have bought into an animated version geared towards kids and has a few chuckles for adults... A live-action is going to be like Battleship or better yet Minesweeper: The Movie (http://youtu.be/LHY8NKj3RKs).

Also, I don't want to sign into Games for Windows (or whatever they're calling it now) to play Minecraft if that's what they mean by unification.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on October 28, 2014, 07:41:04 AM
Yeah, I'm just trying to imagine how they could make a live-action film without it being like that. ^

Perhaps my filmic imagination is just not up to snuff.

Post by: Odd Bob on October 28, 2014, 03:31:43 PM
I can't see it as a serious movie, but as a comedy running along the same lines as, say, Mogworld or Wreck-It Ralph (or the Lego Movie, come to that, just without the blocks), I can see potential. You could even do a split real world/game world tale, a little like the third Gamers film but with the emphasis switched.
Title: Re: Minecraft
Post by: Suho on October 29, 2014, 08:29:07 AM
Hmm. Interesting ideas there.

Come to think of it, one of the reasons the POTC film worked for me was the heavy emphasis on comedy.

Going serious probably would be a mistake.

Oh, hey guys! Long time no see.

Yes, BM and I have been looking forward to this update. I haven't spent all that much time on the server lately, outside of the occasional weekend jaunt with BM (and sometimes rae!), but this motivates me to get back in there and complete a project I started a while back. It should actually fit nicely with the new update.
